1/2. Thielemann's diagonal law of occlusion revisited.

    Thielemann's studies of malocclusal relationships and the frequently observed chain reactions created in distant localities led to the formulation of a philosophical approach to occlusion that is also of practical premeditative clinical relevance for the practitioner. Dr. Thielemann presumed to name it a law, and repeated clinical observations apparently support and reinforce his claim. All disciplines of dentistry inevitably encounter and need to know about this aspect of fission-reactive involvement with the common and seemingly innocuous malocclusions. By incorporating the law into the diagnostic, planning, corrective, and therapeutic stages of treatment, the clinician can readily categorize patients for needs assessments and future goals in treatment.

2/2. lyme disease: considerations for dentistry.

    Although lyme disease has spread rapidly and it is difficult to diagnose, a review of the dental literature does not reveal many references to this illness. Dental practitioners must be aware of the systemic effects of this often multiorgan disorder. Its clinical manifestations may include facial and dental pain, facial nerve palsy, headache, temporomandibular joint pain, and masticatory muscle pain. The effects precipitated when performing dental procedures on a patient with lyme disease must also be considered. This study discusses the epidemiology and diagnosis of lyme disease, its prevention, and factors to consider when making a differential diagnosis. dental care of the patient with lyme disease and currently available treatments also are considered. Three case reports are presented.
