Preprosthetic and Implant Surgery

espite dentistry's improved ability to maintain dentition, many individual continue to require replacement of some or all of their teeth. Surgical improvement of the denture-bearing area and surrounding tissue (preprosthetic surgery) offers an exciting and demanding challenge to the dental practice. Many minor modifications of the alveolar ridge and vestibular areas can greatly improve denture stability and retention. In some cases, patients have severe bone changes or soft tissue abnormalities that require extensive surgical preparation before the prosthetic appliance can be properly constructed and worn. Procedures that improve prosthesis retention and stability are discussed and illustrated in Chapter 13. One of the most exciting frontiers in dentistry is implantology. Proper bony and soft tissue reconstruction followed by placement of implants and subsequent prosthetic reconstruction can provide patients with a more natural and efficient substitution for their lost dentition. Depending on the circumstances, several types of implant systems may be used. Chapter 14 discusses the various types of implant systems currently in use and their advantages, disadvantages, and indications for use.

Nowadays, cosmetic surgery has become more popular for modern people. Some people believe that it is a science to increase the beauty of a person. The basic aim of this surgery is to enhance the appearance of the individual by altering the parts of the body.

Breast Implants

...Advantages of Breast Implants Women get breast implants for a number of reasons, although research has shown that the number one reason is to improve their quality of life. It is a given fact that in today’s world, appearance matters, and women are going the extra mile to look better even if it involves surgery. The size of a woman’s breasts contribute significantly to her overall look, so if they are not happy with this aspect of their body it can result in low self esteem. This is one of the reasons women get breast implants and to reestablish their confidence and overall well being.   There are also other more personal reasons why women get breast implants. Some would simply like to achieve a more proportional look in their body if their breasts are too small, and implants are the answer. Implants are also useful when it comes to reshaping breasts to give it a more natural look, especially if it has been slightly distorted due to pregnancy and breast feeding.   Today, breast implant surgery is highly developed due to decades of research, science, and medicine. Procedures are much more personal and individual, in order to give women a highly customized look that suits their own unique anatomy and needs.

Breast Implants

...Breast Implants In 1997, the United States had 101,176 people that went through surgery for breast implants and in 2000 that number more than doubled to 203,310; just in those 3 years. The first surgery that was ever performed was in the late nineteenth century; breast implant devices have been used to surgically enhance the size, adjust the shape and enrich the feel of a woman’s breasts. In 1889, the first breast implant surgery was done by Dr. Robert Gersuny, who experimented with paraffin injections, but ended with catastrophic results. In 1930, silicone, a synthetic plastic, was invented for use as a breast implant filler. In 1940’s, Japanese prostitutes had their breasts injected with substances such as paraffin, sponges and non-medical grade silicone to enlarge their breasts, believing that American men favored large breasts sizes. Silicone is a metal-like substance that’s found in nature when it is combined with oxygen which creates silica. Ordinarily beach on the sand and crystals are the real silica. For the silica to turn into silicone it will have to combined with carbon, which will form silicon. It is put though further process, which then becomes polymerized; this process combines the more complex molecules. That’s the method on how they make silicone. There are three ways in which silicone can be processed: A fluid, a gel, and a solid rubber which is known as elastomer. Silicone can even be found in regular everyday items like chewing gum, cleansers, suntan......

Whether plastic surgery always works is questionable. When people hear about plastic surgery, most of them tend to connect it with Hollywood.

There are thousands of cases of skin cancer, sears or deformity of body parts. The following paragraphs also report issues such as, reasons for plastic surgery, pro's and con's, and safety or the risks of surgery. In the last part of this thesis I will introduce a discussion and finally a conclusion. 3 Introduction A plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery is a surgical procedure without a medical indication. The plastic surgery is so often a perceived beautification of the human body. Cosmetic surgeries are aesthetic surgeries. The society places a high value on appearance and beauty.

...Cosmetic surgery on teenagers 1. Give an outline of the various views on plastic surgery for teenagers which are presented in texts 1 and 2. In the two texts the views on plastic surgery are quite similar. Both texts agree on the fact that American teenagers might feel that a lot of pressure has been put on them, they strive to be beautiful, but their ideal of beautiful is twisted and for a normal teenager almost unattainable. One of the major problems is that some teenagers find something they don’t, for instance they might think their breasts are too small, then instead of waiting for their bodies to be fully grown or just getting used to having a smaller, they tend to breast enhancement. The adolescents doesn’t let their bodies grow to their fullest, but take the less time consuming way of the surgeon’s knife. 2. How does Valerie Ulene engage the reader in the subject in text 1? Illustrate your answers with examples from the text. Valerie Ulene manages to get a good hold of the reader by introducing the article by telling a story about herself. She explains her own experience about having a large and crooked nose, to the reader, which made her stand out from the average teenager. She mentions that she actually dreamt about getting her nose fixed, but that it was not actually something she ever considered seriously. By telling us about her experiences about plastic surgery, she makes herself equal to those of the teenagers today, who consider surgery themselves. It......

It gets more normal in families, that one of the parents have god a plastic surgery and then it seems normal enough for the child to get operated. And a 18-year-old girl named Preiss says, that she and her friends plays a game called “What would you have done?”. Preiss also says that she could grow up and realize there are more important things in life than her nose, or it could bother her so much that it will take her to a point where she would get a surgery. Dr. Antell gives us an example of a girl, whose self-esteem was much better after her surgery. But Dr. Brown thinks, if young teenagers have......

... The Increase of Plastic Surgery Worldwide These days it seems like everybody is getting plastic surgery without hesitation. Plastic surgery was limited before to repair or correct birth defects or injuries of people. When the procedures became less invasive, the doctor’s techniques improved and the material needed for procedures cost less, society began to use plastic surgery for cosmetic purposes. Cosmetic surgery has become more accessible to a wider segment of the population worldwide and be accepted in many countries as a normal procedure. There are many people from different parts of the world that are obsessed to change their physical appearance.

...ENGL 1102 English Composition II-Online 26 June 2015 It is not uncommon as an adult to undergo plastic surgery in America today. However, it is becoming more common for young adults and teenagers to have plastic surgery. One of the more popular plastic surgery routines is getting breast implants. When asked, teenagers expressed that they often feel awkward and flawed, and plastic surgery helps to “fix” their bodies. Teenagers seem to think that plastic surgery is the quick answer to fitting in with their peers. Our society has accepted that individuals of all ages are choosing to go under the knife in attempts to “correct” their bodies; including teenagers. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), there were 286,254 breast augmentations performed in the year 2014. Breast augmentation rates as the top procedure for women in America. Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to increase the shape, size, and fullness of the female breast. While breast augmentation is a customary choice for adult women, the expanding popularity of breast augmentation with teenagers has led to a lot of criticism and speculation. There is little doubt that being a teenager is tough. Hormones, academic stress, and peer pressure are everyday struggles for the average American teen. In addition to this stress put on young females, there is the additional fact that body image is generally a big part of the problem. During teenage years the body is changing, and......

...Plastic Surgery - Enormous Increase in Uptake by Younger Women Professor Laurence Kirwan, one of the world's leading plastic surgeons, who has appeared on BBC Breakfast to comment on the PIP breast implant scandal and who wrote in the Mail on Sunday (British newspaper) how cosmetic surgery can prolong life, has said that more and more young women between the ages of 35 and 40 years have cosmetic surgery. Professor Kirwan says that the number of women between 35 and 40 years who have cosmetic surgery every single year for 5 years has risen by 5%. He says that most young women opt for 'liquid lifts', injections of facial fillers, which typically consist of hyaluronic acid, a gel-like substance that occurs naturally in the skin and helps retain moisture to make cheeks look fuller and lift sagging jaws. The 'liquid lifts' together with Botox freeze the muscles to lift drooping eyebrows by interfering with nerve transmission. Younger women tend to choose a short-scar facelift (SSFL), whereby the skin is pulled upwards and then pulled back over the bony structures of the face, whilst fat pads that have dropped with aging are repositioned into their proper place. This new and nonintrusive procedure only has a maximum two-week down time costs about £10,000 ($16,000) with results lasting for as long as 10 years. Kirwan says: "This is a miracle treatment for many young women wanting to cut off the effects of ageing at the pass. They don't want to wait until they look......

Chinn Implants

...Nobody can choose how to look when we are born, and I believe that most of us at some point notice our own defects in our body. It’s been quite long time since many women and even men do surgery on themselves to lose some weight, etc. but apparently that it's not enough now. Many people have been doing chin implants for the past few years and the numbers has increase considerably for a better self image, self esteem, and because there is a small risk rate on that operation. I do accept that having a surgery on your chin, because a malformation or an accident it could be of a great relief. Living your entire life with a malformation on your face, could be really painful for many people. Having an accident where the result is a deformation on your face could be even more painful, since a sudden change to our appearance could be as shocking and traumatizing as for a person that loses his or her ability to walk. Speaking for myself I'm grateful that I did not have any malformation on my face and body, cannot speak for those who do have these problems, although it wasn't their choice. The chin implant surgery could really be a great salvation for these people, but there are those that take advantage of these surgical advances for their own cosmetic vanity. According to the article publish by Diane Mapes “surgical procedures that enhance and define the chin line, increased 71 Percent between 2010 and 2011, outdoing breast augmentation, liposuction and even Botox” I find these......

Cochlear Implants

... Cochlear Implant Essay Jeanie Partlow HCA/COMM 270A The Context and Language of Health Care Randi White Warner Pacific College April 30, 2012 Cochlear Implant Essay A cochlear implant is a surgically implanted device that provides electrical stimulation to the auditory nerve in the inner ear. The device has internal and external components. The external parts consist of a microphone, a speech processor, and a transmitter. The internal parts include a receiver and electrodes. The external speech processor captures sound, converts it to digital code that is transmitted to the internal electrodes, and finally, communicated to the brain for interpretation as sound. Good candidates for the cochlear implant have profound bilateral sensorineural hearing impairment and functional auditory nerves. Three groups of patients that have the greatest potential success include post-lingually deaf adults, pre-lingually deaf children, and post-lingually impaired people (usually children) who have lost hearing due to diseases such as meningitis. Tyler, Fryauf-Bertschy, Kelsay, Gantz, Woodworth, Parkinson (1997) confirm pre-lingually deaf children are excellent candidates as they obtain the implant during the time that the brain is developing and highly functional in adapting to sensory input. The cochlear device is implanted behind the ear where the surgeon will create a pocket in the mastoid bone for the receiver. The electrode array is then placed through the inner ear into......
