PATIENT EDUCATION MODELS

PERIODONTICS (PER)

Periodontal Disease Model

Features:
- Peelable recessed gingiva allows view of calculus, exposed roots and bone resorption
- Anatomically rooted teeth with calculus
- Missing lower left 1st molar area causing supereruption of upper left 1st molar resulting in elongated tooth condition
Purpose:
- Explain severe periodontal disease and subgingival calculus to patients
- Brushing demonstration for periodontitis



Periodontal Disease Model

Features:
- Transparent jaw and gingiva to show the roots and impacted tooth
- Missing tooth condition on lower right premolar (#28)
- Horizontally impacted 3rd molar (#17) on lower left posterior region
- Gingival recession condition exposing dental calculus and roots
Purpose:
- To show and explain periodontal disease conditions (gingival recession, bone resorption, calculus deposit) to patients
- To show and explain the adverse effects of horizontally impacted wisdom tooth as well as missing tooth



Pathological Study Model

Features:
- Inflamed gingiva with recession and tooth brushing abrasion on right quadrant shows view of dental calculus and exposed roots
- Normal condition with healthy gingiva shown on left quadrant
Purpose:
- For explaining dental root exposure as a result of gingival retraction
- Allows easy comparison of diseased side with healthy side
