Hi everyone , I am @nataliejooon 🤗 , a first year dental student at USC✌🏽
I can't think of anything more rewarding that making people smile everday. I am beyond excited to pursue a career that requires a lifelong commitment to service and learning, two values that are most important to me✨
BASICS ON WHAT TO DO IF A TOOTH GETS KNOCKED OUT:
We refer to this clinically as an 'avulsed tooth'. Avulsion refers to a tooth that has been knocked out from its socket, typically after a traumatic incident.
N.B. it is not advised to re-implant baby teeth, as it may risk damage to developing successor teeth. So we’ll be referring to avulsed permanent teeth in terms of treatment.
A tooth which has been knocked out is considered a dental emergency. There are steps you can take to maximise success rates of replanting the tooth.
Here are key principles patient/dentist can follow in terms of management:
a) handle the tooth carefully, hold the tooth by the crown (part of tooth visible in the mouth), we do not want to contaminate the root surface.
b) try and re-plant the tooth into the socket if it is clean and ask the patient to bite on a handkerchief to stabilise the tooth in position. Keep the patient like this for at least 10 mins.
c) if the tooth is dirty rinse under dirty water briefly for 10 secs, then replant.
d) AVOID STORING THE TOOTH IN WATER. If the tooth cannot be replanted, store in milk/saline or saliva of the patient (could ask patient to spit in cup or the tooth can also be transported in the mouth, keeping it between the molars and the inside of the cheek) until you see a dentist.
Even if you soundly manage to replant the tooth, go see the dentist as precautionary measure to avoid complications.
The next post will continue to explain the management of avulsed teeth with focus on the types of avulsion that may exist and the professional treatment.
Let the world know who’s that person. Tag him/her here!!! 🍕🥙🍔😂. .

Predental students from near and far came for a day of shadowing, last week. The predents had the opportunity to see how the life of a DS1 and DS2 student really is; sitting with them through class and Simlab.
💕Happy Sunday!! Happy to be able to relax and watch some football (even if the Browns continue to lose) before a crazy next few weeks!!
💕Pictured are 2 of my favorite things... sushi and the guy in the red. I don’t know where I’d be without all of his love and support!!
💕Sad I have to leave his side yet again but hopefully being so busy will keep me distracted. -

In undergrad, most if not all your classmates are around your same age. In dental school that is not the case. Part of the beauty of dental school is the variety of people in different stages of their lives all coming together for one common goal, to become a dentist. I used to not envy my classmates who were settled down and had families of their own. I mean, I am struggling to take care of myself so I couldn’t fathom how they were able to balance school and taking care of a family. I give them major props. After going through a breakup in the past month, I’ve changed my stance. I can see how the stability of finding your spouse and having their support can help you thrive in dental school. Not having the doubt of “is this the one?” or randomly thinking of the pros and cons of a relationship while cutting a prep in lab must be a settling feeling. Breakups are tough especially while in dental school when you have limited time to do anything other than study. But even when life feels as scary and unsure as biking into a pitch black cave, all you can do is trust the process. Just wanted to share a part of dental school that isn’t academic but is a very real life thing while in school. Thanks for taking a listen.
WORD OF THE WEEK: MAMELONS
Hi everyone! Happy Sunday. I hope you are enjoying your weekend as much as I am.
I decided that from now on I will be doing a dental word of the week. This week I chose mamelons. Mamelons are present on permanent teeth after they come in to the mouth. If you notice from the picture they appear as three little bumps on the cutting surface of the teeth. They are present in your front or anterior teeth. The mamelons are quickly worn down once the teeth erupt, although people who have an open bite or overbite may keep these until adulthood. Prior to braces, I had a severe overbite. The second picture I included is my teeth and if you look very closely you can see that my mamelons are still there slightly.
These differ slightly between people, some being more pronounced than others. I think it's cool when I see them 😁
Some people will get them removed for aesthetic reasons, but they cause no harm. Have a great day!
🔹Prosthetically Driven Surgery🔹This is so MUCH more than just a surgical guide! Getting to this point means that you already evaluated and diagnosed the patient, took some radiographic images including the CBCT, merged that scan with an accurate representation of the clinical scenario, did a wax up to evaluate prosthetic rehabilitation, and according to all of that you precisely planned implant size, position, angulation, distribution, thickness of buccal plate and surrounding bone and soft tissues, the need for other adjunctive surgeries or graft and much much more. The Goal: Predictable functional and esthetic results🔸Digital Dentistry and Dental 3D Printing are amazing! No words needed to describe this beauty!🔸✌🤓

🔹Cirugía Protesicamente guiada🔹 Esto es MUCHO más que solo una guía quirúrgica de implantes! Llegar a este punto significa que ya se evaluó y se llegó a un diagnóstico, se tomaron imágenes radiográficas incluyendo CBCT, se sobrelapo esa imágen con una representación digital precisa del escenario clínico, que se hizo encerado diagnóstico para evaluar la rehabilitación Protésica, y en base a toda esa información se planificó de forma precisa el tamaño de implante, la posición, angulación, distribución, ancho del plato buccal, del hueso y tejido blando adyacente, la necesidad de hacer cirugías o injertos adicionales y muchas muchas otras cosas. La meta: Resultados funcionales y estéticos predecibles. 🔸La odontología digital y el "3D Printing" dental son un recurso increíble. No se necesitan palabras para describir esta belleza🔸✌🤓 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - #ProsthLife#prosthodontics#prosth365#prostodoncia#implantology#dsd#stomatology#digitaldentistry#dentistry#implantologia#doktergigi#dentallab#dentaltechnician#estheticdentistry#dentalstudent#dentalschool#fotografiadental#dental3dprinting#omfs#exocad#3shape#blueskybio#waxup
