my school friend cik izyan farhana will be getting married on the same day of i am. tiru tiru. then i can't be on your wedding then.

i hope all my friends are able to make it to my wedding. i  miss all of them especially those from my class in 5J 2003. i miss school time. except for the school uniform and the exam.

i'm still trying to flatten up my tummy. i look thin. but my tummy is so not flat. any tips anyone? i want flat tummy before my wedding. i don't wanna look like a pregnant woman on my wedding.

dup dap dup dap. wish me luck.

happy new year. my resolution are to have a better life and to become a better person than what i'd been before.

last Thursday i did my first conservative treatment (or better known as filling) on my patient who is also my friend here. i plan to do only one filling on one tooth because that was my first time doing. after doing the x-ray of all thet teeth, my supervisor asked me to do 2 filling on 2 different tooth instead. because the x-ray shows that the tooth next to the indicated tooth was also infected.

so i drilled of the infected area or better known as caries area. showed it to my supervisor. i need to correct the cavity preparation for a few times before i can finally restore it with amalgam ( the black thing u use for filling).

when i was about to show the well prepared cavity, suddenly my patient complained that she cannot closed her mouth completely. i panicked. i don't know what to do. my supervisor was busy listening to my friend's case presentation. i could not disturb her. for about 15 minutes, my patient was unable to close her mouth completely. can u imagine how it feels when u are unable to close your mouth. for 15 minutes????

when  my supervisor came to see my patient, her jaw can already be closed completely. but when she checked the movement of her jaw, it was slightly deviated. so my supervisor asked everybody in the group what will u do if somehow our patient experienced that problem or better known as locked jaw during the treatment?? all of us were quiet. so she gives me assignment  that ought to be presented to her this Sunday. 
so this is what i found.

    There are different causes of lock jaw and the cause determines treatment. Tetanus is an acute infection caused by a bacillus and characterized by spasmodic contractions of the jaw muscles. With a tetanus infection, incorrect diagnosis leads to death. The most common cause is spasm and shortening of the jaw muscles. Muscle spasm is treated with moist heat and TMJ exercises to loosen the muscles. With muscle spasm, the lower jaw can slide laterally but not open.
          Sometimes lock jaw happens after a dental injection, when an anaesthetic is accidentally injected into the jaw muscle. If the spasm is from dental infection, it should be treated aggressively. An abscessed tooth makes pus which may extend into the jaw muscles causing muscle spasm and inflammation.
          If a jaw opens and won't close, it's due to a forward dislocation of the jaw joint. The joint pops forward and out of place and won't go back. It's treated by firmly gripping the lower jaw and rocking it downward and backward until it pops in place. This problem can occur after yawning or remaining open for a long dental appointment. A closed lock jaw can be from anterior dislocation of the TMJ disc.        
         Locking can occur after an overdose of phenothiazines or in some neurological disorders especially in the basal ganglia. Patients who experience lock jaw often have regular headaches and neck aches. There is often a history of head and neck trauma and these patients often grind their teeth. Massage therapy and TMD treatment can help.

so about my patient, my supervisor adviced her to compress her TMJ with warmed towel and practise opening her mouth at certain limit. she must control her mouth opening during laughing or yawning so that she won't experienced the problem again. 

actually before i started treatment I'd checked on my patient TMJ (that's a routine to us) and both side were clicking on opening. i thought that it may be my fault as she had to open her mouth for a long period but during the treatment i noticed that she didn't open her mouth too big. and i didn't forced her to open it bigger. so maybe it was my fault or may be the problem was already there, i just make it worse. hoho.

luckily that patient is someone that i know. so she didn't sue me. haha. for me who knows the patient before the treatment, i know that she had the habit to yawn as wide as she can. memang dah tak senonoh dah dia nie. haha. no offenced  girl!

i bump into an old friends which i haven't seen for years. she was in the same class with me during junior high but was in different classes in high school. somehow we were still close. we always went out for movies together with bunch of other friends. after we finished our high school we seems to be lost contact. i can't remember the last time i saw here. we seems busy with our own life. and to be honest i don't event have her phone number. i know where her house is but an incident that happend once there make me feels unwelcomed. several friends did asked about her latest news but of course my answer was "i don't know".

she was with her mom and sis, looking friendly. i was stumb to see her. i don't have any idea what to say. luckily my mother and my sister was there. i did try to relax myself but i failed. i keep avoiding looking straight into here eyes without knowing the reasons. i don't know whether she noticed my nervousness. she was calmed. my mother mentioned about my wedding and invite the whole family. she said she knew bout it. i felt guilty because i don't have any idea what happens with her life. i hope she can make it to my wedding though. . i wanted to ask for her number but i doubt myself.

i was not sure whether she will give it because she want to or because i was asking for it in front of her mother. finally i didn't ask.we end our meeting with just hugs and byes.
i didn't ask because it seems like she was running away from me. the last time i tried to reach her via friendster, i was ignored. after that i never tried to contact her anymore.

to u my dear old friend,
i hope u can make it to my wedding. most of our friends will be there. and to be honest to u that moment we met was an akward moments for me. i hope u didn't notice my nervousness. i hope u contact me via friendster or e-mail. i don't think it's wrong for us to still be friends eventhough i know that our thinking and lifestyle are a total different now. i think i miss u.

today i had a 16 y.o patient that request her teeth to be extracted. the tooth had caries. it can still be restore. we even offer her to do RCT. so that we can safe her tooth. but i don't know why, she still opt for extraction. it's not that there is no other option.

in my heart i was thinking that may be this patient did not had the knowledge. may be she think that there will be a new tooth to replace that tooth.

to everyone out there. i would like to make it clear that we, human are only given with 2 sets of teeth. one set is the small teeth u had during childhood. and then during adulthood u had your permanent teeth. that is why it is called as permanent tooth or gigi kekal. it is because there won't be a replacement after u lost that set of teeth. u can only replace them by denture or bridge or maybe implant. but that won't be similar to the original one.

so. please!!! take care of you teeth. if u are 16 and u already starting to extract your teeth. how many teeth will left by the time u reach 40??


i had spicy trio noodle in Noodle Station. it was so damn delicious. saya dah tak mengidam lagi. hehe. it sound as if i am pregnant pulak. yummy!! i loike!!!
