"One more continuation of current case: Chair side temporization of immediate anterior implant. Implant position sets up for success of prosthesis: “crown before implant”. Emergence profile is currently a hot topic and perhaps an overused or incorrectly used terminology. To describe it simply, it is the shape of the crown/abutment complex from the implant connection to gingival margin. If we create the emergence profile during transitional phase, our labs can simply just duplicate the soft tissue that’s been created. The 4 slides have all the information embedded. Thank you @evocad for the wax up and final restorations"
In the time where I waited for the results of the antiobiogramm the wound just got worse... I felt so Bad and it was a bad feeling that no one seemed to know what I can give a squirrel and some just didnt care cause she was a wild animal. So I had to search on my side and got in contact with american squirrel rehabbers.
Fun surgical history fact of the day: The first successful operation performed with anesthesia was done on October 16, 1946! ⏳ There are 3 main types of anesthesia available today, including local, regional and general. There are also different types of providers who are certified to administer anesthesia, such as surgeons, MD anesthesiologists and CRNA’s ⌛️ #AronowitzMD

Definition of diagnosis - the identification of the nature of an illness or other problem by examination of the symptoms and physical findings in conjunction with findings from investigations where appropriate.
Prognosis - the likely course of a medical condition. The prognosis can alter with medical intervention. .
I saw an IG post yesterday which argued that a prognosis was more important in some cases than a diagnosis. .
I find this statement not only nonsensical but dangerous 💀
If you don’t know what the underlying problem is, how on earth can you advise a patient with regards to a prognosis? 😏
A diagnosis is important because -
👣patients want to know what is causing their pain/symptoms
👣you can commence the correct treatment plan
👣you can advise patients regarding expected recovery times, return to sports/work etc .
An early diagnosis can also catch a disease while it’s easier to treat and/or prevent complications from arising.
Everyday I see several patients who who have either not got a diagnosis or have been given the wrong one. Not surprisingly any treatment targeted at simply the symptoms, often does not work. .
If a patient’s condition doesn’t respond in an expected way:
👣question and revisit the original diagnosis. .
👣consider the possibility of there being more than one diagnosis
👣seek a specialist “2nd opinion”
Rarely do I see a patient with one diagnosis. Most conditions have multifactorial aetiology and when you peel back the history you will find several underlying issues and problems which all have to be addressed with the help of the multi-disciplinary team. .
Would love to hear your thoughts. .
