KURGAN, RUSSIA – TPC scientists at Ilizarov Orthopedic Centre in Russia have developed orthopedic implants as a part of Ilizarov system variation to correct and lengthen the deformations of long tubular bones in children. These implants have passed the preclinical tests which indicate that it has reduced limb lengthening by two times. In this, children with different leg lengths are dissected before slowly moving their legs apart. Titanium or steel needle is inserted inside a tubular bone which acts as a ‘conductor’ to form new tissue. It helps to fasten bone regeneration which helps to reduce the rehabilitation period.

Ilizarov system involves the method of transosseous osteosynthesis to correct bone deformations and body proportions. It has been actively used in many countries of the world. However, the modern Ilizarov system uses titanium or carbon-fiber rods to fix on a limb with the help of various forms and to interconnect them by moving rods. Steel and BT6 compounds have been used to develop needle implants at TPU laboratory which are then coated by TPU scientists with certain materials such as calcium phosphate using certain processes. To improve the survival rate of implants, the technologies have been developed by keeping in mind the composition of natural bone tissue. Also, multiple mesenchymal stem cells are contained in the bone marrow to differentiate into various cells. People use limb lengthening surgery to increase their height. Heightmaximizer.com explains about this in a clear way by reviewing limb lengthening surgery in a concise manner. Here, you will also get information about other facts about this surgery to increase height.

While comparing classic steel and titanium implants without coating with coated implant developed at TPU, it was found that 4 cm of bone tissue can be restored in 35 days and with classic implants, it could be done within 70 days. The density of tissue formed using implants was come out to be 2.5 times higher which matches with a healthy bone. The implants are removed after the regeneration of bones.

Getting to the Root of It! Lebanese Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Mohammad Waizani Explains Root Canal Treatments

Did you know that more than 15 million teeth are treated and saved every year? One of the most common treatments received are root canal treatments. At Dr. Mohammad Waizani’s clinic in Beirut, he specializes in making sure anyone who comes in with a root canal, leaves with a bright smile! 

A root canal treatment is a dental procedure in which the soft center of the tooth called a ‘pulp’ is removed. The pulp is made out of blood vessels, connective tissues, and nerves. In these cases, the pulp is infected after being exposed to bacteria that causes a lot of pain. The crown of the tooth is usually still intact despite the pulp being dead. 

Root canals can be caused by several reasons such as a chip or cracked tooth, deep decay due to cavities that are left untreated, an injury to the tooth, and multiple procedures on the same tooth. 

Some of the signs of root canal infections include the following:

  • Constant toothache 
  • Heat sensation and swelling of gums
  • Sensitivity to heat and cold 
  • Swollen jaw
  • Discoloration of teeth
  • Pain with applied pressure 

Dr. Waizani explains how this surgical procedure works to remove the pulp and ensure the tooth doesn’t get infected. He starts by applying anesthetics to the gum and around the infected tooth. Next, the pulp is removed through a small opening at the top of the tooth. After the procedure is done, his patients’ recovery includes antibiotics to ensure that that infection does not flare up post-procedure. This is followed by a temporary filling. 

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned, there is no need to panic. Contact Dr. Waizani to schedule your appointment!
