In the summer of 2018, I began my experience in the Dentistry program at the University of Manitoba. I am unbelievable grateful for this experience and hope to share my experience, while provide some insight into the field of Dentistry to other hopeful students like myself. After experiencing the first year of the program, I hope to document and provide a visual representation of the dental related work/assignments to the active social media users, who are interested in the field. Thanks for stopping by, I hope my page helps shed what little bit of light on the vast world of Dentistry 🤗
Tooth put back in socket after accident. In this video patient came with a completely avulsed upper first premolar/bicuspid following trauma to the face. Luckily the patient made his way to the dental clinic so his tooth could be reimplanted into the socket. If a tooth is lost, the most important thing to think about is how to preserve it on the way to a dental clinic. most ideal and probably least accessible during an avulsion is saline solution. If that's not available then it should be preserved in milk and as a last resort it may be preserved in saliva👀
This remarkable Australian Blue tongue lizard ancestor was round-in-the-tooth. Reconstruction of the most complete fossil lizard found in Australia, a 15 million year old relative of our modern bluetongues and social skinks named Egernia gillespieae, reveals the creature was equipped with a robust crushing jaw and was remarkably similar to modern lizards. .
Published in the journal of Vertebrate Palaeontology by @Kailahthorn from Flinders University, the study combined the anatomy of living fossils with DNA data to put a time scale on the family tree of Australia’s ‘social skinks’. Link to the paper in our insta bio.
“The new fossil is unusually well-preserved, with much of the skull, and some limb bones, all from a single individual. It belongs to the genus Egernia, a modern species in this group which are often called 'social skinks' and are known for living in family groups, sharing rocky outcrops and hollow tree stumps.” Remarkably similar to modern social skinks, E. gillespieae instead is equipped with rounded crushing teeth and a deep, thick jaw. .
The fossils are from the Riversleigh World Heritage fossil deposits in northwest Queensland, and were named after Dr Anna Gillespie, a UNSW palaeontologist responsible for preparing many of the spectacular fossils from that area. .
Some really great #AusPalaeo for you this #fossilfriday#bluetongue#riversleigh#palaeontology#teeth#crushing#research#vertebrate .
