WATERTOWN, Massachusetts--Pulpdent Corporation has released the 60th anniversary issue of its catalog.
In addition to providing information on the full range of Pulpdent products, the catalog includes case histories, procedural information, and other educational resources of value to dental practitioners.
Included in the 60th anniversary Pulpdent catalog is a case study that could serve as a postgraduate course in dentistry. The case, "Jason's Tooth," features a child who has a replanted immature tooth, complicated by a delay in endodontic treatment and a fistulous tract, followed by root canal therapy, a second traumatic injury to the same tooth, orthodontic treatment, and finally, nonvital bleaching of the replanted tooth for esthetic purposes.
This took place over a period of 6.5 years. Eventually, Jason ended up with all of his own teeth and a beautiful smile.
The case study includes six radiographs and two photos, outlines the treatment objectives and documents the procedures used to control the abscess, prevent traumatic or idiopathic rejection, stimulate apexification and apexogenesis, and "save that tooth" until Jason becomes a young adult, at which time it is more favorable to consider another treatment plan, such as an implant or bridge, if it should become necessary.
This and other case studies are part of the 56-page catalog, designed like a magazine, with information presented in spreads.
Clinical studies, research results, independent evaluations, and step-by-step procedure guides support the product information. Artistic illustrations and close-up photography make the material easy to access and absorb. The catalog, printed in full color, is free.
