    Arkansas stone 

    In dentistry, an Arkansas stone is primarily used for smoothing rugged tooth surfaces and for shaping adhesive fillings & special elements. When the dentist grinds a tooth, it is usually done with a diamond grinder, leaving a rougher surface behind, which is much more accessible to plaque bacteria than a smooth surface. Check the dental videos free for more informational videos about dentistry. This is where the Arkansas stone comes in to polish the tooth surface, creating good conditions for the setting of dental inlays for example. The polishing has to be performed with the use of cooling water, otherwise the tooth nerve could overheat; a root treatment might be the result. There are various shapes of how to form a tooth. Alternatively to the Arkansas grinder, a diamond-coated driller can be used with different roughness to shape the surface as needed for the dental treatment. Check out this video to see how it is done!

    What is Parotid Gland? The parotid gland (also called parotis or glandulaparotidea) is the largest salivary gland in the jaw-mouth area. It differs from other salivary glands in the mouth because of its size, location and the saliva composition that it produces. In humans, it is located on both sides of the face, in front and under the ear, and reaches from the zygomatic arch down to the jaw angle. It has a flat, triangular form and weighs 20-30 grams. It is surrounded by a connective tissue capsule (fascia), also called parotis lodge, or fascia parotidea. The gland is separated into an interior and exterior lobe by the facial nerve, which splits up in a fan-like fashion within the gland.

    How do I get a dentist? 

    When asking “how do I get a dentist?”, your dentist’s location should figure in your decision; naturally the closer they are to home, the more convenient it is for the patient. Use the dentist search feature on checkdent to find a dentist in houston. You should take transportation time and costs into consideration; think about times in case of emergency how quickly you could get from your home to the dental practice, how easily accessible the office is via public transport, how the parking situation is around the area – in case you drive a car, and their opening times and off service days. Make sure they are not overbooked and undermanaged, because if you have any tooth problems, ideally you want to get it treated as soon as possible.

    Holiday in Maldives 

    A holiday in Maldives is best when enjoyed from the comfort of a liveaboard diving ship. A liveaboard diving holiday in Maldives is great because you can cover far more area on a boat than when you have to return to a resort each night. Liveaboard diving holidays include other activities as well as scuba diving, such as fishing, snorkeling, visiting island communities, beach parties and shopping excursions. The Baa Atoll in the Maldives is a great diving destination for a holiday in Maldives thanks to its many varied dive sites and also the high probabilities of spotting whale sharks. Dive sites in the Baa Atoll include Manta Point, Maavaru Kandu and Muthafushi Thila. There are many resorts whose dive centers take divers to the sites around the Baa Atoll, but the best way to enjoy this diving holiday in Maldives is by liveaboard.

    What is Cancer 

    What is cancer? Before today I asked myself this question and I learned how cancer begins in cells in the body and spreads itself throughout the body. Each cell has functions and the body needs them to complete these functions so that the body is able to go out and do its function. More about cancer and dentistry can be found in the dental forum. The “What is Cancer?” is a very informational video with regards to what and how cancer cells occur. The explanation is really easy to understand while providing great insight to the topic. Truly, an eye opener and now I can rest easier. Now I am able to make more sense of what is available. The definition apparently of cancer is: The disease caused by an uncontrolled division of abnormal cells in a part of the body. Or can be known as a malignant growth or tumor resulting from such a division of cells. Either way cancer is something where the cells can transform or multiply and cause problems in areas such as the heart. The video “What is cancer” is incredibly important to anyone who wishes to find out basic information on cancer and learn how cell metabolism and disfunctional cells develop.

    Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 

    Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a branch of surgery. As the name suggests, the focus of this profession is the mouth, the jaw region, the face, and the base of the skull. However, as with many surgical fields, the surgical area is not limited to the regions described above, but is broadened by various flap operations, rib transplantations, iliac crest transplantations for bone replacement, and transplantations of the small intestine as a substitute for the oral mucosa. Contrary to plastic surgeons, the oral and maxillofacial surgeon is also trained in hard tissue surgery such as bone surgery. What are the benefits for the face? We would like to explain this through an example – in the video you see the profile view of a face; you can recognize the receding chin. Try and find a dentist who is highly skilled in this field of oral surgery.
