Most mesiodens remain impacted and can affect the growth and development of adjacent permanent teeth. Impacted mesiodens are usually located in an intraosseous position associated with complicated anatomical structures, necessitating minimally invasive surgical approaches. This article demonstrates a simple customized surgical stent for extraction of impacted mesiodens. Its use and advantages are described.

OBJECTIVE: Many innovations have recently been implemented in the field of endodontics, often based on a variety of in-vitro/ex-vivo test setups. It was the goal of this research to compare different biofilm models for evaluating the effectiveness of rinsing solutions. METHOD AND MATERIALS: Three different models have been applied in this study, including petri dishes with nutrient medium, arrays of human dentin disks, and split bovine root segments. The susceptibility of biofilms formed by Enterococcus faecalis to commonly used endodontic irrigants was tested...

Planning oral rehabilitation that involves an interdisciplinary approach is challenging, especially when it includes changes in the morphologic aspects of teeth and the architecture of gingival tissues. Patients commonly complain about the esthetics of maxillary anterior teeth, especially when diastemata are present. A guideline known as the golden proportion can be used to establish adequate width distribution of anterior teeth. Tooth proportion is also affected by incisogingival tooth length, hence gingival contouring should be evaluated as well...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to assess the efficacy of laser therapy (LT) and antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) as adjunct to mechanical debridement (MD) on the management of halitosis. DATA SOURCES: In order to address the focused question "Is MD with adjunct LT and/or aPDT more effective in the management of halitosis compared with MD alone?" an electronic search without time or language restrictions was conducted up to January 2017 in indexed databases using the combination of different key words including photochemotherapy, lasers, light, photodynamic therapy, halitosis, and bad breath...

Atherosclerosis is a progressive narrowing of arteries that may lead to occlusion as a consequence of lipid deposition. It underlies coronary heart disease, as well as myocardial and cerebral infarctions. Recent attention has been directed towards the potential contribution of chronic inflammatory processes that may amplify vascular inflammation in atherosclerosis, as it is recognized as a chronic inflammatory disease. In this category are two of the most prevalent oral diseases: periodontal disease and apical periodontitis (AP)...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to present a rare case of periodontal disease-like bone loss and possible treatment options. This paper discusses the pros and cons of conservative treatment and radical surgical intervention and summarizes possible complications. It focuses also on the individual situation of the patient and provides a review of literature. METHOD AND MATERIALS: A 32-year-old patient presented with widening of the periodontal spaces and apical translucencies at every tooth after adjuvant radiotherapy of an oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) of the tongue...

OBJECTIVE: Today, only scarce information is available on monolithic zirconia reconstructions. The objective of this study was to evaluate the performance of monolithic zirconia for tooth- and implant-borne reconstructions. METHOD AND MATERIALS: Monolithic zirconia single crowns (SCs) and fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) supported by implants or teeth were included in this study. Implant placement and prosthetic treatment were done in the same clinical setting. One technician performed all laboratory work using the same CAD/CAM workflow (DentalDesigner, Ceramill Motion 2, Amann Girrbach)...

Odontogenic myxoma (OM) is a non-metastasizing neoplasm of mesenchymal origin, arising in the tooth-bearing areas of the jaws. When regarding the whole spectrum of differential diagnoses for osteolytic jaw lesions, OM constitutes a benign tumor rarely located in the maxilla. Radiographically, displacement of teeth and frequent involvement of the sinus will be found with advanced maxillary OM. The tumor can be removed by means of several techniques, ranging from conservative measures to extended surgical procedures that differ according to type of bone resection and reconstruction of the defect...

OBJECTIVE: New oral anticoagulants, or "direct oral anticoagulants" (DOACs), have been used worldwide in recent years. An evidence-based enigma regarding dental patients using DOACs still exists. METHOD AND MATERIALS: This was a 4-year, cross-sectional study on individuals receiving DOAC therapy, treated in a single maxillofacial center. A bleeding event was the outcome parameter. Potential contributing risk factors were evaluated. RESULTS: Of a total of 111 patients, 72 underwent a total of 305 oral procedures in 115 sessions...

Root canal treatment of immature teeth is considered a great challenge for both the dentist and the patient. The thinness of the root canals walls and the lack of an apical barrier leads to unpredictable treatment results. Revascularization is a novel promising treatment option in the field of regenerative endodontics for management of immature necrotic permanent teeth. This case presents a successful treatment of an 8-year-old patient with a partially necrotic, immature permanent mandibular right first molar pulp by revascularization...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this ex-vivo study was to evaluate both the external and the internal penetration ability of a resin infiltrant into natural proximal and macroscopically intact white spot lesions, and to merge this approach with the internal tunnel preparation concept. METHOD AND MATERIALS: 20 premolars and 20 molars with proximal subsurface lesions (ICDAS, code 2) and respective radiographic lesion depths extending into the middle third of dentin (D2 lesions) were selected and divided into two groups...

OBJECTIVE: This case report presents cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) three-dimensional (3D) assessment of the buccal bone associated with an implant. METHOD AND MATERIALS: A patient who had immediate implant replacement of a maxillary incisor received a CBCT examination after 6 months. The scanned volume was then subjected to segmentation of the buccal bone associated with the implant and to its three-dimensional rendering. RESULTS: Virtual reconstruction allowed volumetric assessment of the buccal plate, and of the buccal marginal bone level...

The salivary gland duct cyst (SGDC) is not commonly encountered on the floor of the mouth and few well-documented case reports are available. To increase the knowledge of this lesion, this report features a diminutive SGDC in a 54-yearold man. Commentary is offered as to the relevance of the affected patient's antecedent history of cholelithiasis.

OBJECTIVE: The tissue-dissolving and bactericidal activity of sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) can be increased by warming the NaOCl solution without concurrently increasing its toxicity. The present study was set up to determine if and to what extent a heated liquid reaches the apical region. METHOD AND MATERIALS: A temperature sensor was introduced from the apical aspect into a human canine 22 mm in length prepared to size 40.04. At 37°C in the incubator the canal was irrigated with water 10 times each at temperatures of 10°C, 21°C, 45°C, 60°C, and 37°C (control group)...

OBJECTIVE: To develop and test self-administered satisfaction questionnaires for patients with removable dental prostheses (RDPs) in the German language. METHOD AND MATERIALS: A three-phase methodology was used. A pilot questionnaire was developed in phase one. At the end of phase two, the final version of the questionnaires were reached. In phase three, 192 questionnaires were distributed to evaluate the psychometric properties of the final version of the questionnaires...

This article presents the historical development of the different generations of zirconia and their range of indications, from veneered to monolithic zirconia restorations. While Part I concentrated on detailed information about the development of zirconia for dental use and the mechanical and optical properties, Part II deals with the resulting guidelines for working with the relevant generations by summarizing the correct cementation procedure. Furthermore, this part also focuses on translucency measurements for better characterization and understanding of the different materials...
