March: Industry and Business

Over the past several decades, China has risen to prominence as forerunners in many industries and business sectors, including finance, agriculture, clothing and in modern times especially, technology. Whilst these traditional industries are popularly associated with the country’s ever-growing superpower image, issues such as restrictions to entrepreneurship and other routes of personal innovation continue to cause debate in the Western world and beyond.

 

April: Culture

The subject of Chinese culture can be approached from a myriad of avenues. The government’s maintenance of cultural security and national identity; the interaction of global trends and influences with local cultures; understanding driving forces behind the emergence and prosperity of China’s changing cultural industries; Western interpretations of Chinese culture, consumerism and aspirationalism; the rise of “digital democracy” and the economy of grassroots culture in China, and many more issues constitute to an exciting field of study.

ITI treatment guide – v.8 Biological and hardware complications in implant dentistry / authors: U. Bragger, L.J.A. Heitz-Mayfield.

D 617.674 I8 B

Volume 8 of the ITI Treatment Guide provides clinicians with the latest evidence-based information on the origins and treatment of biological as well as hardware complications. This analysis of the current evidence is based in part on the proceedings of the 4th ITI Consensus Conference held in Stuttgart in 2008 and of the 5th Consensus Conference held in Bern in 2013, as well as on a review of the current literature. Sixteen step-by-step clinical cases presented by experienced clinicians from all over the world illustrate the diagnosis and treatment of complications.

Anesthetic complications, which range from simple annoyances to patient mortality,  are inevitable, given the many and complex interactions of doctor, patient, personnel, and facility. Anesthesia Complications in the Dental Office helps dentists minimize the frequency and severity of adverse events by providing concise and clinically relevant information that can be put to everyday use.

Anesthesia Complications in the Dental Office presents the most up-to-date information on treating anesthesia complications and medical emergencies. Drs. Bosack and Lieblich and a team of expert contributors discuss patient risk assessment; considerations for special needs and medically compromised patients; routinely administered anesthetic agents; adversities that can arise before, during, and after administration of anesthesia; and emergency drugs and equipment. A must-have reference for every dental office.

Access articles from Routledge Criminology

Online access to White-Collar Crime: Research Collection

The phrase “white-collar crime” was coined in 1939 during a speech given by Edwin Sutherland to the American Sociological Society. Sutherland defined the term as “crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of his occupation.” Although there has been some debate as to what qualifies as a white-collar crime, the term today generally encompasses a variety of nonviolent crimes usually committed in commercial situations for financial gain.

The articles below bring together a selection of recent research into white-collar crime, they can be accessed for free online until the end of June 2015.

Dental Research Seminar

Published by at 2:54 pm under Dentistry
Tags:

Date: June 9, 2015 (Tuesday) Time: 12:45 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.

Venue: The Lounge, 7/F, The Prince Philip Dental Hospital

 

Presenter: Miss Cao Ying, PhD Candidate (12:45 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.)
Title: Biomimetic remineralisation of hydroxyapatite on human enamel and dentine
Abstract: As the outermost layer of teeth, enamel is susceptible to caries due to the products of bacteria metabolism; or can be lost by trauma or by non-carious tooth loss. As the enamel lesions progress into dentine, tooth hypersensitivity often develops when the exposed dentine is subjected to stimuli. Traditional treatments include replacing the defected tooth structure with dental restorative materials such as amalgam, composite resin, and ceramics. However, marginal leakage, hypersensitivity and secondary caries often happens at the interface. Therefore, there is a need for scientists to design an alternative strategy to repair the tooth lesions. Biomimetic mineralisation is concepts from biomineralisation trying to transfer biomineralisation principles to the regeneration of new biomaterials. This study aimed to remineralise the demineralised enamel and dentine using biomimetic mineralisation methods.

 

Presenter: Miss Ito Leticia, PhD Candidate (1:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.)
Title: Effects of silver diamine fluoride on dentine demineralization and in combined use with laser irradiation
Abstract: In the mouth, there is always a dynamic process of demineralisation and remineralisation of the exposed teeth. Caries develops when the balance tips to demineralisation; but it can be arrested when the lesion is overwhelmed by remineralisation. Results from clinical trials showed that silver diamine fluoride can arrest and reharden carious lesions. Investigation also showed that enamel and dentine are harder and less soluble after application of SDF. In vitro studies also found that SDF can prevent Actinomyces naeslundii and Streptococcus mutans biofilm formation and reduce further demineralization. Studies also suggest laser irradiation after topical sodium fluoride application increase fluoride uptake on dental hard tissues. Current literature however found no study reporting the effect of laser irradiation on dentine treated with SDF under bacteria challenge. Therefore, this study investigated the effects of SDF on dentine demineralization and in combined use with laser irradiation under cariogenic biofilm.
