    0 PERIODONTAL ISSUE | JULY 2023

    If caught early, gum disease is something a patient can manage themselves with proper hygiene and management of their diet. However, it is not always easy for patients to maintain their oral health at home nor is access to dental care always guaranteed. Once gum disease has progressed, we can’t expect at-home care alone to be enough, nor can we expect normal hygiene appointments to solve the problem. As clinicians, it is important that we consider adjunctive treatments that can be added to our normal routine that will put our patients in their best state of dental health.

      Diagnostics (Basel) 2022, G Laza et al

    Much like with the rest of our body, hormones can also wreak havoc on our oral health. Periodontal issues already plague our older generations, but the added weight of menopausal hormones can increase the chances of developing other conditions affecting your oral health.

    • Articaine: dental practitioner use, the basis of perception and evidence-based dentistry a cross-sectional study

      BDJ Open 2022, E Martin et al

    Articaine, which was first introduced in the Canadian dental market in 1985 has been a popular choice for clinicians for many years. It performs just as well as lidocaine but offers extra benefits such as safer second injections, quick metabolization, and a higher degree of safety for those with liver issues. Articaine also offers more thorough anesthesia than lidocaine in situations where infection/inflammation is present. Despite the many benefits and overall strength of Articaine, there remains a taboo when using it due to fear of paresthesia, despite it being disproved. The following article will seek to ascertain the use of Articaine among general practitioners, the basis of their perceptions about articaine and whether current practices are in line with recent evidence regarding articaine safety and efficacy.
