DENTAL TOURISM IN ROMANIA.

#dental #radiology 51

You wonder why your dentist sends you to do dental radiographs and you are concerned about their effect on your body?

We want to answer you to these questions and ensure you of the minimum effects of dental radiographs on your health.

The dentist needs the dental radiographs because they provide details that cannot be obtained otherwise , details which are essential for a co,plete and correct diagnosis for performing the right medical maneuvers for your problem.

Many diseases of the teeth and surrounding tissues can be seen only on x-ray , such as interdental caries , infection of the root( granulomas , cysts) tooth fractures , maxillary bone resorption due to periodontal damage.

If we expect for the damage to become clinically visible , the treatment would be more complicated , more expensive and with less chances of success. Thus, dental radiographs helps us in having a correct and complete diagnosis of the clinical case and in establishing a treatment plan.

The most recommended dental radiographs are: retroalveolar radiography ( periapical) , panoramic radiography ( orthopantomogram). We can  also recommend: Bite-wing x-rays , occlusal radiographs , teleradiographs , radiographs of the temporomandibular joints , radiographs of the maxillary sinuses.

Periapical retroalveolar radiography 

Retroalveolar radiography ( periapical) is the simplest most recommended and cheapest radiological investigation. This type of x-ray reveals the entire tooth , including the crown , root and bone to which it is anchored.It is performed by positioning the dental x-ray sensor in the patient’s mouth using a plastic sterile support , fixing it and then performing radiography. The dental radiology nurse asks the patient to sit still for a few seconds, as long as it is necessary for the sensor to record the radiological image. The sensor is then scanned into a computer and the image appears immediately on the screen. The radiographic image obtained highlights 2-3 teeth on a dental arch ( maxilla or mandible). This type of radiography is indicated in the following situations: initial evaluation for development of treatment plan ( dental status) , detection of caries , detection of periapical infection / inflammation , assessment of periodontal condition , detection of already made treatments and assessment of their correctness , visualizing root morphology before canal treatment or extraction after dental trauma to view the teeth which are not broken or which are about to come out.

Initial evaluation for treatment plan development ( dental status ) caries detection.

Control during the development of treatment radiographs with needles on the dental canal to verify roots permeability , roots to the tip, checking complete desobturation of canals , check of prosthetic works adaptation on limit , control and post-treatment assessment , evaluation of accuracy of endodontic treatments immediately after their performance , at 3 months and 6 months in teeth with apical periodontal damage , and then annually to all endodontically treated teeth , periodontal treatment effectiveness evaluation at 3 months , 6 months , and then annually after apical resection , evaluating implants after surgery and after osseointegration , as well as annually.

Bite-Wing radiography

This type of radiography is used for detecting caries between teeth , gingival caries or under filings for evaluation of periodontal condition and bone loss.

Panoramic radiographs (orthopantomogram)

Any dentist should recommend a panoramic radiography to the patient at the first visit , before making any treatment. Based on panoramic radiography , the doctor and the patient discuss about the treatment plan which represents the steps to follow to solve any existing dental problems.

Panoramic radiography provides the doctor and overview of the patient’s clinical situation without providing detailed information. It includes both dental arches and shows quite accurately the relationship between the teeth and neighboring  anatomical formations: maxillary sinuses , mandibular canals. To achieve such a radiography the patient is equipped with lead protective equipment and is positioned towards the dental nurse with his/her head at the level of  a machine that will rotate around him/ her at the time of exposure. The patient is asked to sit still for 20 seconds. At the end of those 20 seconds , the radiological image has already appeared on the  computer screen. This is usually performed at the beginning of treatment , being very important for an overall correct diagnosis. Often , retroalveolar radiographs are needed ; they are smaller in size but show more information in detail. Indications are multiple: initial evaluation within the treatment plan, emphasizing bone lesions or the teeth which didn’t come out , assessment of periodontal status and support bone structure , visualization of wisdom tooth in case of maxillary or mandibular fractures to assess the position and orientation of critical structures such as the inferior alveolar nerve , maxillary sinus position in relation to dental roots , emphasizing cancer lesions.

Radiation doses

Why is our fear unjustified? Many daily activities even the most common ones expose ourselves to radiation. The amount of radiation absorbed by a person is measured by Sievert ( Sv). The Sievert is the irradiation dose measured by quantitatively evaluating the biological effects of radiation.

In case of a retroalveolar radiography the effective radiation dose is approximately 5 micro Sv.

In case of a panoramic radiography the effective radiation dose is approximately 30 micro Sv.

In case of a chest radiography the effective radiation dose is approximately 100 micro Sv.

Daily average background dose is 10 micro Sv ( radiation received from the sun and the earth’s crust).

Smoking a pack and a half of cigarettes every day for a year causes absorption of 3600 microSv and at 100.000 microSv ( equivalent to 20.000 retroalveolar radiography) and the risk of developing cancer appears.

There is an unjustified fear that dental x-rays produce irradiation. The patient must understand the limitation imposed by the lack of x-rays and the fact that the benefits of information obtained through radiographs , far outweigh the risk given by exposure to a minimum dose of ionizing radiation.

MEDICAL TOURISM IN ROMANIA – Fagaras Fortress

fAGARAS fORTERSS

Făgăraș was during the Middle Ages, together with Amlas, a traditional Romanian enclave in Transylvania. The first written document mentioning Romanians in Transylvania referred to Vlach lands (“Terra Blacorum”) in the Fogaras Region in 1222. (In this document, Andrew II of Hungary gave Burzenland and the Cuman territories South of Burzenland up to the Danube to the Teutonic Knights.After the Tatar invasion in 1241-1242, Saxons settled in the area. In 1369, Louis I of Hungary gave the Royal Estates of Făgăraș to his vassal, Vladislav I of Wallachia, the territory remained in the possession of Wallachian Princes until 1464.

Except for this period of Wallachian rule, the town itself was centre of the surrounding royal estates.

During the rule of Transylvanian Prince Gabriel Bethlen (1613–1629), the city became an economic role model city in the southern regions of the realm. Bethlen rebuilt the fortress entirely.

Ever since that time, Făgăraș was the residence of the wives of Transylvanian Princes, as an equivalent of Veszprem, the Hungarian “city of queens”. Of these,Zsuzsanna Loprantffy,a the widow of George I Rakoczy established a Romanian school here in 1658. Probably the most prominent of the princesses residing in the town was the orphan Princess Kata Bethlen (1700–1759), buried in front of the Reformed church. The church holds several precious relics of her life. Her bridal gown, with the family coat of arms embroidered on it, and her bridal veil now covers the altar table.Both are made of yellow silk.

Făgăraș was the site of several Transylvanian Diets, mostly during the reign of Michael I Apafi.

The church was built around 1715-1740. Not far from it is the Radu Negru high school – built around 1909. It was originally a Hungarian language middle school whereBabits Mihaly taught for a while.

A local legend says that Negru Voda left the central fortress to travel south past the Transyvanian Alps to become the founder of the Principality of Wallachia, althoughBasarab I is traditionally known as the 14th century founder of the state. By the end of the 12th century the fortress itself was made of wood, but it was reinforced in the 14th century and became a stone fortification.

In the beginning of the 20th century, namely in 1910 the town had 6,579 inhabitants with the following proportion: 3357 Hungarian, 2174 Romanian and 1003 German.

Făgăraș’s castle was used as a stronghold by the Communist State of Romania. During the 1950s it was a prison for opponents and dissidents  After the fall of thecommunist State in 1989, the castle has been restored and is currently used as a museum and library.

COSMETIC SURGERY IN ROMANIA. OTOPLASTY

oto03-00 oto03-01

INTRODUCTION
Otoplasty is performed in order to approach ears to the head or to make them smaller. Usually, decollated ears are asymmetric, one being more decollated than the other. Moreover, ears can be of different sizes. The aim is to restore this symmetry but a promise as they will be perfect cannot be made.


WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM OTOPLASTY?

The operation is performed after the age of 4-5 when the ear nearly reaches the adult dimensions.it is indicated for the intervention to be performed before the patient joins different collectivities (kinder garden, school) in order to avoid the apparition of psychical trauma due to unfavorable comments.
SURGERY RISKS
There are risks involved in undergoing any surgery. When an experienced surgeon performs the surgical intervention, the complications are rare and usually minor. There are great differences between patients as regards the healing capacity, thus the outcome is never completely predictable. In a slight percent small blood clogs may appear situated behind the ear, on the incision or small infections situated on the tegument or the cartilage that can easily be treated with antibiotics.

PREOPERATIVE INDICATIONS

  • Do not eat or drink after midnight before the surgical intervention
  • Taking aspirin and drugs containing aspirin with two weeks before the surgical intervention is forbidden;
  • Usually, for women, the surgical intervention must be performed besides menses;
  • The surgeon and the anaesthetician must be notified if any medical problems exist (blood pressure, vascular problems, heart attack, diabetes, lung problems, bleeding problems, epilepsy, neurological problems, allergies for different drugs);
  • The doctor must be notified if you have a set of plates or eye lenses;
  • If you smoke, plan to quit 1-2 weeks before the operation and do not start to smoke again for at least 2 weeks after the surgery;
  • Avoid sunbathing in excess before surgery, particularly in the facial area;
  • Do not follow a strict diet before surgery because it might delay the healing process;
  • If you catch a cold or have any infection the surgery must be rescheduled

THE SURGICAL INTERVENTION
In very small children general anesthetic is preferred and for older children and adults the local anesthetic is combined with light intravenous anesthetic. The surgical intervention takes about 1 hour. The incision is made behind the ear in order to avoid the cartilage. Then, with surgical wires the cartilage is folded and brought closer to the head. After controlling hemostasis stitches are applied.

PREOPERATIVE HOSPITALIZATION
The surgical intervention is performed without hospitalization or with 24 hours hospitalization. A compressive bandage must be worn 1 week after which a hair ribbon must be worn for another month The stitches are removed after 7-8 days even by the family doctor.

RECOVERY
Children may return in collectivity after 1 week but they must be surveyed in the first month and adults may return to work after 2-3 days.

CONCLUSIONS
The results of this intervention are positive but you must not be certain to obtain perfectly symmetrical ears after surgery, being unnatural for the ears.

DENTAL TOURISM IN ROMANIA.

albul dintilor

How do you know if you are a candidate for a Smile Makeover?

The shape and design of each patient’s teeth should be tailored to that individual , because each person’s facial contours are different , and these distinct characteristics help to distinguish one’s character. The starting point of smile design is determining the facial midline. The midpoint between the two front teeth should line up with the midline of the face. The amount of tooth and gums that are revealed differ from patient to patient depending on phonetics ( what their smile looks like when sounding certain letters) and smile position. For example , if you were to draw a line between the corners of the mouth when smiling , you will find that a youthful smile show 75-100% of the front teeth below that line. Different types os smiles can be created just by altering the planes in which the edges straight or rounding them off. For example , someone who wants a more aggressive look may have the teeth line up  straight across without any soft curves , where as some who wants a more playful appearance may want the two front teeth slightly longer than the teeth directly next to them , and the canine teeth ( 2 teeth over from the front teeth ) would be a little longer and with a more curved point. Just by rounding off the sharps edges of teeth one can create a softer , more feminine appearance. People can also correct that sunken in look where the teeth narrow as they go back by enhancing their smile to fill those dark spaces in the corners of the mouth.

Additionally , esthetic dentistry based upon one’s own facial features may dictate the need to include different shapes , inclinations and rotations of teeth. Some people just may need more proeminent centrals. Maybe the laterals need to be rotated to catch the light in just the right way. Old photographs should be used to help find out what characteristics about your original smile you liked and disliked. Then, when appropriate the, dentist can give you back something that you brought in with you to make the teeth like your own.

MEDICAL TOURISM IN ROMANIA – Calnic Fortress.

calvic medieval fortress in Transylvania - UNESCO world heritage

Calnic is a commune in Alba County and it is known for its castle , which is on UNESCO ‘s list of Wold Heritage Sites. The name of the settlement comes from the slave “kal”or “kalnik”=clay. The Saxon name of the locality is Kelling   and is coming from the early masters , the nobles Kelling. One of them , Chyl de Kelling built in the middle of the 13-th century the dungeon of Calnic and used it as housing. At Calnic was found prehistoric material and vague medieval traces from the 11-12-th centuries , but the medieval settlement itself dates from the 12-13-th centuries. The last descendent of the noble family sold the fortress to the Saxon peasant community of Calnic. The fortress was restored between 1962-1964 by the Romanian board for Historical Monuments and today has been transformed into an international scientific and cultural center.
