Masato Murakami, Yoshihide Nakai
In this article, we describe the history and current state of psychosomatic medicine (PSM) in Japan and propose measures that could be considered based on our view of the future prospects of PSM in Japan. The Japanese Society of PSM (JSPM) was established in 1959, and the first Department of Psychosomatic Internal Medicine in Japan was established at Kyushu University In 1963. PSM in Japan has shown a prominent, unique development, with 3,300 members (as of March 2016), comprised of 71.6% of medical doctors including psychosomatic internal medicine (PIM) specialists, general internists, psychiatrists, pediatricians, obstetricians and gynecologists, dentists, dermatologists, and others...

Changes in facial bones may represent a manifestation of systemic disease. Dentists play an important role in the early detection of these manifestations of complex systemic diseases. A case of unusual maxillary mixed (osteoblastic and osteolytic) lesions as an initial manifestation of childhood acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is presented. A 12-year-old male patient was referred to the Department of Oral Medicine complaining of severe swelling in the right buccal region. 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) showed enhanced FDG uptake in the right maxillary sinus...

Engineering, administrative, and work practice controls have been recommended for many years to minimize exposure to nitrous oxide during dental procedures. To better understand the extent to which these exposure controls are used, the NIOSH Health and Safety Practices Survey of Healthcare Workers was conducted among members of professional practice organizations representing dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants. The anonymous, modular, web-based survey was completed by 284 dental professionals in private practice who administered nitrous oxide to adult and/or pediatric patients in the seven days prior to the survey...

BACKGROUND: The availability of dentists to care for Medicaid beneficiaries is a longstanding concern of many families and those who serve them in the dental profession as well as policy makers. Yet, little information beyond the number of enrolled dentists has been reliably determined. The American Dental Association (ADA) Health Policy Institute has called for more nuanced measures that better reflect dentistry's contribution to the care of Medicaid beneficiaries. METHODS: The authors calculated percentages of general and pediatric dentists who enrolled in Medicaid, billed Medicaid, and treated Medicaid beneficiaries in each state for which data were available from the ADA's 2008 study, the Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors' 2013 report, and the 2013 federal Web site InsureKidsNow...

INTRODUCTION: Preservation of primary tooth with non-vital pulp has been a major problem for pediatric dentist. In such cases, the preferred treatment modality is pulpectomy. The objective of pulpectomy is complete removal of necrotic and irreversibly infected pulp of an affected tooth but, in spite of chemomechanical preparation and copious irrigation of canal, there are chances of failure of pulp therapy due to the entrapped micro organisms in the canal space owing to the tortuous and complex nature of the root canal system and change in their morphology with root resorption...

Knowledge of the different anatomical variations in root canal system of dedicious dentition will improve the practice of the pediatric dentists. The teeth with C-shaped root canal configurations are definitely a problem in endodontic treatment. Dentists who are specialists of endodontics must have adequate knowledge about various root canal morphologies of primary tooth that have a tendency for rapid progression of dental caries to achieve a technically satisfactory outcome. This report presents an extraordinary case of unusual tooth morphology involving the mandibular first primary molar with a C-shaped configuration which has not yet been reported...

INTRODUCTION: Dentists can be the first professionals to recognize a patient's potential sleep problem since they typically have more frequent contact with their patients than do physicians. It is important that dentists have a reasonable understanding of sleep disorders and how to assess their patients if they suspect such a problem so that a timely referral can be made or treatment can be provided as appropriate. OBJECTIVE: To review the key literature relevant to sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) characteristics and diagnosis, including history, examination, and investigation with an emphasis on radiographic airway analyses...
