Description

Physicians have a lower mortality rate from cancer and other health diseases relative to the general population. Medical practitioners have a significantly higher risk of dying from suicide, the end stage of an eminently treatable disease process. Suicide is the most common cause of death even among medical students. HIV infection and AIDS are spreading rapidly among the world's children. Although recent research has identified several ways of preventing perinatal transmission of HIV, most of these methods are too expensive for widespread use in developing countries. Oral manifestations are early and common clinical indicators of HIV infection and progression in children, as in adults, although the specific manifestations differ between adults and children. Aggressive dental management is indicated in an effort to prevent or manage oral and dental disease Corrosion damages caused by disinfectants on stainless steel used to fabricate medical and dental devices, The surgical instruments that are on the market for use in medical and dental treatments are usually manufactured from stainless steels. The methods of cleaning can cause premature deterioration of the instruments, reducing their lifespan. Unannounced inspections of hospitals often detect instruments containing small fractures, microscopic cracks, pitting, and crevices that should invalidate their use in surgery.
