The Landesgalerie Linz is the museum for modern and contemporary art of the State of Upper Austria. It educates on the latest art tendencies and integrates them into 20 th century art history. The Landesgalerie Linz’s programme is designed to link regional, national and international art production.
The Landesgalerie Linz is also focused on the field of photography and in the past decade has been able to establish itself as an international excellently-networked institution for high-quality photography presentations in Austria. In addition to presenting contemporary art, a primary objective of the Landesgalerie Linz programme is to provide education about 20 th century art history relating to Upper Austria.

Summary of the
Tobacco consumption has been identified as a major risk factor for pathological changes in the oral area, e.g. periodontal disease and cancer. Exiting tobacco offers the possibility of a reduction in cancer precursors, improved long-term success of periodontal treatment and improved periodontal status compared to patients who continue to smoke. Providing help to stop smoking is thus partly the responsibility of dental professionals and the dental profession in general. Tobacco cessation should consist of supporting a change in behaviour. Accompanied by medicinal measures, the probability of success becomes even higher. It is generally accepted that appropriate remuneration for smoking counselling would provide dental professionals with a greater incentive to offer these measures. Therefore, it should be possible for dental professionals to obtain remuneration for smoking counselling and it should be in proportion to other treatments. International and national institutions for dental professionals are urged to promote all efforts to prevent and eliminate smoking among the population, communities and personal contacts, including the integration of these measures into pre-clinical and clinical education. To facilitate acceptance of weaning strategies by dental professionals, we propose a step-by-step care model: 1) basic care: a brief survey of all patients in the practice to assess smoking status, willingness to quit, and permission to ask for it during further visits to the dentist; 2) middle care: (short) surveys on current motivation to drop out, tools to support this behavioural change, including medication, and 3) advanced care: intensive care to develop a detailed drop-out plan, including the use of appropriate medication. To ensure that the effective use of smoking cessation becomes a generally accepted standard, training and refresher courses should be organised and regularly offered to all dental professionals.
BILD clarifies questions about the dental bonus booklet
The year is coming to an end and the Christmas stress is drowning many things that have to be done this year. Among other things also whether one had already the dental control for the bonus booklet in this year. Because who forgets once the stamp, starts again from the beginning.
BILD and dental expert Kai Fortelka from the Federal Association of Statutory Health Insurance Dentists clarifies the most important questions about the bonus booklet.
What is a dental bonus booklet?
Insured persons in the statutory health insurance must pay a not inconsiderable part of their dental prosthesis themselves. This includes bridges, crowns, implants and prostheses. If you want to reduce your own costs, you must regularly keep a bonus booklet. This means having your teeth checked regularly. Because if gums and teeth are treated in good time, dental prostheses can often be avoided.
For most of my teaching career, I taught fifth or sixth grade. Sometimes I gave more than two hours of homework. Kids complained a lot, though parents rarely did, at least not to my face. I think parents mostly felt the same way I did: that homework was the best way to practice new skills, that it teaches responsibility and helps to develop a strong work ethic, and that it’s an opportunity to reflect on new learning.
But most of all, my students’ parents and I were more than a little afraid that our kids would fall behind – behind their classmates in the next classroom, behind the kids in a neighboring school, behind the kids in other countries. Homework was considered one of many ways to prevent that from happening.
Which leisure activities and excursions worthwhile with children in Tirol?Tirol has a lot to offer for families with children on family holidays. There are an above-average number of excursion destinations in Tyrol and special Tyrolean sights that are also worthwhile for children. You’ll find so many that you won’t even be able to see all the excursion destinations in Tyrol with children if you live here! We know what we are talking about, because we live in Tyrol and do a lot of things.
Selective caries removal: After a short time, the 7-year-old boy no longer cooperated and considerable proportions of the carious tooth substance had to be left.
For readers in a hurry
When excavating, the pulp should not be opened if possible.
Softened dentin may be left near the pulp (selective excavation), contraindication is irreversible pulpitis.
If there is no cooperation, carious tooth substance can even be left completely and sealed with steel crowns (Hall technique).
Contraindications here are caries profunda, irreversible pulpitis or periodontal involvement.
If the crown pulp is opened during excavation, direct capping or pulpotomies are promising.
Milk teeth, not least molars, should be preserved until the change of teeth. There are several promising methods, some of which do not require excavation at all.
There is a growing consensus that excavation to probe clashing unnecessarily endangers the survival of symptom-free teeth . In the case of deep caries, the pulp is opened too often. In these cases, caries-softened dentin should only be completely removed in the area of the cavity margin and the enamel-cement interface (selective excavation) . In the case of less advanced caries up to the middle dentine penetration agent, on the other hand, complete excavation continues – for a good prognosis of the restoration .
For the 50th time, Prolit has now launched a bundled preview mailing for its publishers delivering to Prolit – currently with 68 participating publishers to over 3400 bookstores. That was the reason for today’s Sunday meeting with Prolit Managing Director Jochen Mende:
Already for 50 years there is a bundled preview dispatch with you?Jochen Mende: No – not since 50, only since 25 years – but now for the 50th time – because twice a year.
I mocked because you’ve felt that for ages. Why did you come up with the idea?
Refurbishment: Glyptothek closed until autumn 2020
Since October 2018, the Glyptothek has been closed for an estimated two years due to renovation work. Above all, the museum will be technically refreshed and adapted to the needs of the disabled. Damage to the façade will also be repaired. The works of art will be stored in the depot or casted-in in the exhibition rooms. Some will travel to special exhibitions in Vienna, Berlin and Copenhagen.
The popular café (photo) has moved to the ground floor of the State Collections of Classical Antiquities opposite.
