I'm having a hard time with males between the age 21-35 not paying attention to SIMPLE directions?
Me: "Don't use this tooth to bite into anything! This is just a tooth to smile with for the next few months"
Patient: "Gotcha. Thanks"
2 weeks later...
Patient: "My implant is loose."
Me: "Did you use this tooth to bite into anything?"
Patient: "Not for the first few days, then I sorta forgot about it being an implant and only bit down into soft things like pizza and a burger."
Me: *face palm*
I hesitate to immediate load on males for this exact reason. THEY DONT FOLLOW DIRECTIONS!
I prefer the convenience to immediate load to keep the soft tissue architecture, ease of use to temp during the healing phase, and I dont' need a second surgery to uncover the implant as long as the soft tissues are ideal day of surgery.
In a cases like this, I remove the implant along with any infected tissues, irrigate with microcyn and graft. The bigger issue is the buccal plate is often times lost. I started to use these Laminar bone membranes. They are made from thin sheets of cortical bone which has been processed to be flexible without breaking, while still supporting weight. This helps recreate the buccal wall structure instead of a resorbable collagen membrane that often don't maintain the tissue struckture as well.. https://www.maxxeusdental.com/biologics
Think about using these for cases similar to mine. Great product.

A healthier substitute for a lollipop on
#LollipopDay , I use them for face balancing and toning ☺️ (although technically they were designed to be keyrings! 😂) There is a Chinese Medicine technique called “guasha” which means to bring out the the red. You may have seen it (or even had it) on the back, it’s actions are similar to cupping: bringing out toxins via the skin, promoting blood flow and healing through the tissues, relieving pain and enhancing muscle tone. Well it can be done on the face too!
Face and neck guasha is fantastic for reducing the signs of ageing, muscle tenderness and resisting the effects of gravity.
Traditionally it’s done using a piece of jade or a jade roller, you can also use a chinese soup spoon as a super cheap option (although I worry about ceramic in a bathroom), but I love these resin creations that can permanently hang in the shower and look good too!
I do this quick <1min routine in the shower a few times a week and people are constantly telling me how good I look 🤩
If you’d like your own instructions about how to facial guasha, like this post, like FaceWell on Instagram and Facebook, head to the website and enter your email details with the word “guasha” in the message section. Link in bio.

A couple of Miller class 3 recessions. What can we expect in terms of root coverage? What do we tell our patients? I’m a big fan of the old “under promise and over deliver”. Managing patient expectations is so important in our field. Here we treated both canines with CTG + CAF. I know how many variations could be selected here but I truly find this is a predictable modality. For those that are concerned with verticals - I simply don’t find they impact the final esthetic result when performed appropriately. Case by @drphilwalton
Good oral hygiene is very important during orthodontic treatment! The following information is provided by the Canadian Orthodontic Association 😁✨. Braces trap food very easily which promotes plaque formation. Plaque can lead to gum disease and enamel damage. With the daily use of effective oral hygiene techniques, plaque build-up can be prevented.
The foundation of good oral hygiene is effective brushing. This is done with a fluoridated tooth paste and a soft bristled brush. Brushing should be done after every meal and snack and should be done slowly and carefully. It is important to not only brush the braces but also brush both the inside and chewing surfaces of the teeth.
Les appareils retiennent la nourriture très facilement favorisant ainsi la formation de plaque dentaire. La plaque dentaire peut causer des maladies de gencive et endommager l’émail des dents. Grâce à une technique d’hygiène buccale soutenue et adéquate, on peut prévenir la formation de plaque dentaire.
La base d’une bonne hygiène buccale est un brossage efficace. Ceci peut être obtenu à l’aide d’une brosse à soies plutôt molles et une pâte à dent fluorée. Il est indiqué de brosser lentement et avec soin après chaque repas et collation. Il est tout aussi important de brosser le côté intérieur et les surfaces de mastication des dents que les boîtiers (broches) eux-mêmes.
