At the beginning of this year I decided to go to school to become a CDA(Certified Dental Assistant). I worked my ass off and went to school full time. While in school I also became CPR Certified, OSHA Certified, & HIPPA Certified. As well as being trained and certified to perform sealants, coronal polishing, radiographic examinations, and more on patients. I am blessed to say that after all the hard work it truly paid off. I was offered a job at one of the Top dental offices in California at Smile Prosthodonics with Dr.Munguia. Today was my first of many Christmas parties I will be attending with my new Dental Family. I’m so excited for this new opportunity in my life. 2020 will most definitely be a big year for me. I had many people doubt my success and try to talk me out of making this big step in my life. But I never gave up. It’s only up from here. ♥️ #2020hereicome#dentalassistant#cprcertified#hippacertified#oshaapproved#sealants#xrays#cda
It was a smokey day last week when our Enviro HP1200 was installed as a part of our Enviro Trafficable System to the exposed roof and helipad at Oran Park Commercial Stage 1 project in Sydney, NSW.
Based on similar helipad applications across high profile projects including the Northern Beaches Hospital and Bendigo Hospital, the Enviro Trafficable System was the ideal solution for this exposed roof. #Envirosystems#Waterproofing#Coatings

So ready to head back to Tennessee for the holidays. Going to be in Knoxville from the 14th of December to the 5th of January. Ready to see fam, friends, mountains and in general do a proper Christmas. Anyone back looking to hang out send me a pm and let’s figure out some fun.
These two from the Dusty Husky Installation at @oomph.arts are two of my favorites panels from the show. Looking forward to having my dude @garret_m_clarke to come down and capture things way better than I ever could. “Honky Tonkin I & II”

Dental sealants are very material coatings used to fill in deep grooves and pits in teeth that can harbor bacteria. Sealants are applied to healthy chewing surfaces of the teeth to prevent decay and cavities – especially among children. If you have children or if you think this procedure could help you, call us today for an appointment. (661) 383 2888

Sorry I took your groove away 🕺🏼 #sealants -
For those that don’t know what sealants are. Sealants are an awesome way for you to prevent tooth decay aka cavities! They are placed in the grooves of your teeth forming almost like a shield for your teeth. #areyourgroovessealed

Day 1 of our sealant trip was a HUGE success! As a group of 22 dental students, we treated 100 patients! I’m so grateful for UKCD for allowing us to have clinical experience even as a D1. Also, s/o to our first official patients for being adorable and not biting our fingers 😬 #studentsofdentistry#dentalschool#dentalstudent#sealants#teeth#ukcd
Pit and fissure sealant in action. Adult molars (the large back teeth), as everyone knows, have deep grooves on their biting surfaces. Because of their depth, sticky sweet foods like raisins, fruit rollups and of course candy may get stuck in them and remains there for 30-40 minutes after the treat is finished. The enamel at the bottom of these grooves also tends to be very thin. Thus, they are often the first places decay forms in the teeth. With the discovery of the process of dental bonding, it has become possible to apply a permanent plastic layer to the top of the back teeth to "waterproof" them and seal out germs and sugar. This innovation is known (appropriately) as dental sealants. Now I will explain how exactly this process of sealing is done. The chewing surfaces of the teeth to be sealed are first cleaned with pumice which looks a bit like fine beach sand. This buffs the surface of the enamel and prepares it for the process of bonding. With the teeth kept dry using cotton rolls, or sometimes a rubber dam, a gel containing dilute phosphoric acid is applied to the buffed biting surface of the tooth (etching). This remains on the enamel for about 15 to 30 seconds, and is then washed off. After drying the tooth, the surface looks chalky white which is evidence of the microscopic hills and valleys caused by etching the surface. The liquid resin (plastic) sealant is applied over the etched enamel. The resin flows into the etched mountains then valleys and pools in the grooves on top of the tooth. A bright light is then shined on this liquid plastic, and it hardens into a glass-like coating over the surface of the tooth. A more up-to-date procedure replaces the resin sealant with a glass ionomer formulation which adheres to the teeth without the phosphoric acid etching technique necessary if the sealant is an acrylic resin or a composite. In addition, glass ionomer has the property of releasing fluoride into the tooth structure, which means that these sealants prevent decay both by preventing sugar and bacteria from making contact with the tooth enamel, and by strengthening the surrounding enamel with fluoride. #pit#fissure#sealants#preventive#dentistry

In continuation of the last post, I'm reposting this from early last year involving a larger restoration on an abutment tooth. A retrofit surveyed crown is still the recommended ideal treatment option.
This patient lost the buccal cusp (along with an amalgam restoration) of his maxillary left second premolar (25), which was one of the abutments for his upper cast RPD. The tooth was vital and deemed restorable. Here I illustrated how to restore the abutment tooth by retrofitting it to the circumferential clasp and the occlusal rest of the RPD. I've used this technique several times, and so far it has worked out quite efficiently.
A & B: Pre-op clinical photos of the fractured maxillary left second premolar (25), an abutment for the RPD.
C: Cleaned tooth with TheraCal liner placed in the proximity of the pulp. Retraction cord was placed into the buccal gingival sulcus and a trimmed sectional matrix was secured with a wedge at the distal.
D: Free-hand building of the composite after etching and bonding. Once the desired height was obtained, the RPD (disinfected with alcohol and dried) was fully seated over the uncured composite buildup. The composite was shaped further around the clasp and the rest without creating undercuts (to prevent locking the RPD in the composite) and light-cured.
E & F: Composite contoured by the denture clasp assembly. It was trimmed and polished after the RPD, retraction cord, and the sectional matrix were removed.
G & H: RPD inserted over the finished restoration.
A dental sealant also known as a pit and fissure sealant is a plastic-like coating placed on biting surface of the molar teeth. They are called pit & fissure sealants because they fill in the naturally occurring grooves of teeth. They are a safe and affordable way to help prevent tooth decay. The cracks and grooves of the molars allow food particles and bacteria to collect, which may result in tooth decay. Toothbrushes are unable to reach into every crevice of the tooth surface, so it may be hard to keep molars thoroughly clean. A sealant fills in these pits & fissures, leaving out food and bacteria and creating a smooth surface, which is easier to brush. Sealing the teeth prevents permanent damage caused by tooth decay. As always, prevention is preferably better than trying to fix a problem after it occurs. Once a cavity sets in, drilling and filling is the only permanent fix. The dentist can determine whether a sealant is appropriate for children . Sealants are typically applied to permanent molars, the first of which appear around age six. The process of applying sealant is simple and painless. After a tooth cleaning, a pre-treatment gel is applied to the surface of the tooth, then cleaned off. Next, the sealant is applied on the tooth. It hardens in about a minute usually with a blue light. This process is simpler for children than drilling the tooth to remove tooth decay and filling it with a restoration. Animation provided by ICE Health Systems. #preventive#dentistry
