  • Dental Sculpotomies: A Case Study

    Introduction: The dental pulp is a loose connective tissue that is found in the center of the tooth. Its primary function is the formation and support of the dentine that surrounds it (Solómon, 2015). The pulp has the unique reparative capacity where it can cause the differentiation of new odontoblasts and in turn lay down dentine. The pulp can be damaged and this leads to the need for treatment.

  • Bone Remodeling

    Micro-fracture consolidation can be treated with bone remodeling, and the adaptation of skeleton is applied to “calcium homeostasis” and to mechanical use. The bone remodeling involves the bone resorption regarding to osteoclasts and bone formation relating to osteoblasts. Regular bone-related diseases including “bone-metastasized cancers”, Paget’s disease, multiple myeloma, and osteoporosis are caused by the disproportion between the resorption and formation processes. The increased…

  • Bone Loss Lab Report

    Introduction Determination of bone mineral density helps in assessing bone quality. For instance, loss of bone mass which is obtained clinically as the change in BDM (bone mineral density) aids in determining bone fragility (Paschalis, 2009). Though, bone mineral density cannot be used alone to indicate that someone will suffer from bone fracture since there is the difference in BDM between the populations. Some people in a particular community develop bone fracture while others do not. Some…
