  38. The first toothpaste In 1950. the fluoride was first added to toothpastes

  39. Dentistry in the future Biotechnical advances will significantly improve future dental care. Diagnostic techniques, ranging from biotechnical analysis of specific oral bacteria to imaging technology involving magnetic resonance and computer assistance, will allow more accurate and earlier detection of pathologic change .

  40. Dentistry in the future There is an increasing tendency for dentists to enter into partnership or group arrangements so that expertise and costly equipment can be shared.


  42. DENTAL CARIES one of the most common of all disorders may affect any person the most significant cause of tooth loss in younger people

  43. Causes of dental caries bacterial causes: - a wide variety of bacteria that convert foods - especially sugar and starch - into acids such as lactic acid created through fermentation processes Streptococcus mutans Lactobacilli

  44. Causes of dental caries lactic acids seep into the tooth and wear away tooth structure S. mutans and Lactobacillicontinue to thrive and continue to secrete these acids bacteria, acid, food debris and saliva combine in the mouth to form a sticky substance called plaque that adheres to the teeth

  45. Causes of dental caries the acids secreted by S. mutans and Lactobacilli in the plaque dissolve the enamel surface of the tooth left untreated, carious lesions will increase in severityfrom small discolored stains to actual holes in the tooth - cavities

  46. Causes of dental caries cavities are usually painless until they grow very large inside the internal structures of the tooth when cavities reach the pulp they can kill the nerve and disrupt the blood vessels in the tooth if left untreated complications may occur (such as irreversible pulpitis or acute apical pulpitis).

  47. Signs and symptoms odontalgia visible pits or cavities in the teeth halitosis (bad breath)

  48. Signs and symptoms the tooth has fractured no caries a small white spot forming of a lesion secondary caries caries undermines the tooth

  49. Types of dental caries occlusal facial ligual interaproximal buccal labial

  50. Diagnosis of caries smaller require examination with a dental explorer large cavities are visually aparrent
