Music to Listen to After Wisdom Teeth Removal: Jazz Songs

I have previously posted entries on some music you can listen to after having your wisdom teeth removal. See this post http://blog.teethremoval.com/music-to-listen-to-after-wisdom-teeth-removal-rock-and-roll-songs/ for some great rock and roll songs and see this post http://blog.teethremoval.com/music-to-listen-to-after-wisdom-teeth-removal-youtube-musicians/ for some excellent musicians on YouTube who are worth a listen. Now I would like to continue with some more music you can listen to after having wisdom teeth extracted with a focus on some excellent jazz songs. Dave Koz – Together Again. I have seen Dave Koz a few times live and he is an excellent saxophone player. Kaori Kobayashi – Walk in the Night. Suprisingly I have only learned of Kaori Kobayashi recently. She is from Japan and I play the saxophone myself so I tend to enjoy saxophone players. Mindi Abair – Smile Peter White and Dave Koz – Midnight in Manhattan Herbie Hancock – Chameleon. This is one of my favorite songs to play on the saxophone. John Coltrane – Giant Steps These videos and songs don’t appear to be uploaded legally but for some reason are still up so enjoy.

Do Teeth Define Your Personality?

I was alerted to an interesting infographic that was just produced by http://submitinfographics.com/ The infographic discusses some different characteristics of teeth. It also discusses some statistics about how 164 million work hours per year are spent treating dental problems for adults and 51 million school hours per year are spent treating dental problems for children.

Dentist Pulls Out Wrong Tooth

For anyone who has looked carefully at the complications that can happen from wisdom teeth removal page I have put together one of the complications is that the wrong tooth and even the wrong teeth can be mistakenly extracted. An unfortunate additional instance of a wrong tooth being pulled is discussed over at http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2035988/Dentist-retrieved-tooth-bin-sewed-hours-later-pulling-wrong-one.html#ixzz1Xguo9Q2tin a post titled “Dentist retrieved my tooth from bin and sewed it back two hours after pulling out wrong one” written by Stephen Moyes and Nick Constabled and published on September 11, 2011. Now for this specific case that occurs I have not heard quite anything like it. A 44 year old women in the U.K. went to see a dentist over a throbbing tooth. The dentist x-rayed her mouth and for some reason did not look at the x-ray instead extracting the tooth that the woman pointed to. The woman went home and realized that the wrong tooth had been pulled. She then went back to the dental office 2 hours later and the dentist reviewed the x-ray determined that yes the wrong tooth had been pulled, then retrieved the tooth from the medical waste bin, and sewed it back in the woman’s mouth. The […]

How to Protect Yourself from Abusive Doctors

John A. McDougall, MD, is a physician and nutrition expert who considers himself a leader of public opinion and often finds it necessary to challenge the accepted wisdom of the time. Dr. McDougall produces a newsletter over on his website. In the October 2011, vol. 10, issue 10, edition he writes about “How to Protect Yourself from Abusive Medical Doctors.” http://www.drmcdougall.com/misc/2011nl/oct/protect.pdf I think the entire article is well worth the read but I will cover some of the more interesting parts here. Dr. McDougall discuses a case where he has a patient named Marsha who has a history of precancerous changes in the tissues lining her uterus known as endometrial hyperplasia. Over 2 years her condition progressed to early stage cancer. Two surgeons whom she consulted with recommended a hysterectomy as the treatment. Dr. McDougall has a telephone consultation with a young Obstetrician/Gynecologist. This doctor is described as being aggressive, inappropriate, and attempts to humiliate Dr. McDougall during the consultation. Dr. McDougall merely wanted to see the research that supported her recommended treatment of a hysterectomy. Dr. McDougall requests for the Obstetrician/Gynecologist to send him scientific studies that reasonably show that surgery is beneficial. Articles are sent and Dr. McDougall reviews the articles and says he could see no […]

How Jaws Shrink With Age and Does This Affect Wisdom Teeth Crowding?

A recent article titled “A 40 years follow-up of dental arch dimensions and incisor irregularity in adults.” by Nokolasos, Tsiopas, Maria Nilner, Lars Bondemark, and Krister Bjerklin, appearing the The European Journal of Orthodontics Advance Access published October 19, 2011, explores how the jaw is affected over a 40 year time period. The study started in 1949 with 22 males and 13 females (35 total) and after 40 years in 1989, 18 of these participants were still able to participate. Three dental stone study casts were made for the 18 participants who completed the 40 years of the study. The authors state: “The present study showed that the occlusion, overbite, and overjet was stable, but dentoalveolar changes occur in the adult dentition. In the anterior part of the dentition, decreases in arch length and width lead to anterior crowding. There was also an increase in dental arch width at the first permanent molar.” The authors conclude the article by saying “The dentoalveolar processes continue to undergo physiological changes throughout adult life. Of particular clinical relevance is the finding that decreases in arch length and depth result in a decrease in intercanine width and increased crowding of the anterior teeth. These findings have important […]
