Maxillary overdentures supported by 4 or 6 implants in the anterior region; 1-year results from a randomized controlled trial

Slot W et al. – Comparing treatment outcome of 4 and 6 bar–connected implants in the anterior maxillary region to support an overdenture during a 1–year follow–up period. Bar–supported overdentures on 4 implants in the anterior maxillary region are not inferior to overdentures supported by 6 bar–connected implants. Implant survival was high, peri–implant conditions were healthy and patients’ satisfaction ha ...

Adjunctive effect of chlorhexidine antiseptics in mechanical periodontal treatment: first results of a preliminary case series

Calderini A et al. – In the study – a preliminary case series with small sample size and short follow–up – the adjunctive use of chlorhexidine (CHX) to scaling and root planing (SRP) resulted in clinical and microbiological benefits in the treatment for generalized chronic periodontitis. A CHX gel formulation consisting of CHX digluconate and CHX dihydrochloride seems to lead some additional benefits over S ...

Restoration of root surface caries in vulnerable elderly patients: a review of the literature

Amer RS et al. – The authors conducted a literature search of the electronic databases using MEDLINE, PubMed, to identify original clinical research articles regarding treatment of root caries lesions, with emphasis on research focused on the vulnerable elderly. Five articles were clinical studies of root caries restorations.   [button url="http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1754-4505.2012.00 ...

The Association Between Clinical and Radiographic Periodontitis Measurements During Periodontal Maintenance

Payne JB et al. – The study aims to examine the association between clinical and radiographic periodontitis measurements during two years of periodontal maintenance. In postmenopausal osteopenic women undergoing periodontal maintenance, baseline PD was associated with subsequent ABD and ABH loss. Although no longitudinal change preceded another measurement change, changes in probing depths and relative clin ...

The Upregulation of Transglutaminase-2 by Cyclosporine A in Human Gingival Fibroblasts is Augmented by Oxidative Stress

Lee SS et al. – The results demonstrated that CsA significantly upregulated the intracellular ROS generation and elevated TGM–2 expression in HGFs. In addition, TGM–2 induced by CsA was downregulated by PD98059, LY294002, NAC, curcumin, EGCG, and SB203580.

Fracture resistance of simulated immature maxillary anterior teeth restored with fiber posts and composite to varying depths

Seto B et al. – The purpose of the study is to evaluate the type and depth of restoration that would be effective in simulated immature maxillary anterior teeth in terms of fracture resistance and mode of failure. Within the limitations of this in vitro study, it can be concluded that using either dual–cure composite or a quartz fiber post with composite resin to a depth of 3 mm would significantly strength ...

The Effect of Esthetic Crown Lengthening on Perceptions of a Patients Attractiveness, Friendliness, Trustworthiness, Intelligence, and Self-Confidence

Malkinson S et al. – The aim of the study was to see if altering the amount of gingival display of patients would affect dental professionals’ and laypersons’ perceptions of the aforementioned social parameters. Excessive gingival display did positively affect how attractive a person’s smile is judged to be. In addition, how friendly, trustworthy, intelligent, and self–confident a person was perceived to be ...

Management and outcome following extraction of 303 supernumerary teeth in pediatric patients

Minguez–Martinez I et al. – The highest percentage success rate in treating permanent teeth impacted by supernumerary teeth corresponded to those cases in which surgery could be combined with orthodontic treatment. There were no displacements of neighboring buds during removal of the supernumerary teeth in the primary dentition.   [button url="http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/aapd/pd/2012/00000034 ...

Root discolouration following short-term application of steroid medicaments containing clindamycin, doxycycline or demeclocycline

Kuan–Jung B et al. – Discolouration of teeth following application of intra–canal antibiotic pastes is a clinical concern. There was no significant difference between DoxyPaste and Odontopaste at 2 weeks, whereas at 4 weeks, DoxyPaste caused a greater decrease in luminosity (P<0.05), darkening more over the second 2–week interval than treatment with Odontopaste (P<0.05). Under zero light conditions, s ...

A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of the Survival of Feldspathic Porcelain Veneers Over 5 and 10 Years

Layton DM et al. – The systematic review reports on the survival of feldspathic porcelain veneers. When bonded to enamel substrate, feldspathic porcelain veneers have a very high 10–year survival rate that may approach 95%. Clinical heterogeneity is associated with differences in reported survival rates. Use of clinically relevant survival definitions and careful reporting of tooth characteristics, censorsh ...
