Jiayue Yin, Dan Liu, Yuehua Huang, Lin Wu, Xiaolin Tang
BACKGROUND AND OVERVIEW: "Pink esthetics," which are considered to be as important as "white esthetics," have attracted increasing attention. To date, clinicians rarely have applied computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) techniques in the rebuilding of the contour of the marginal gingiva in the esthetic zone. CASE DESCRIPTION: In this case report, the authors describe a female patient who had gingival inflammation and an asymmetrical contour of the marginal gingiva of the anterior maxillary teeth because previously placed ceramic crowns violated the biological width...

Jamie Moeller, Rebecca Starkel, Carlos Quiñonez, Marko Vujicic
BACKGROUND: The authors explored the relationship between income inequality and self-reported oral health and oral health-related quality of life. METHODS: The authors used an online survey to gather data about US adults' perceptions of their overall oral health and how oral health affected their quality of life. The authors categorized respondents as coming from areas of low, medium, or high income inequality on the basis of a county-level Gini coefficient. RESULTS: Results of χ(2) tests and an analysis of variance indicated that there was a significant association between income inequality and oral health as measured by using the overall condition of the mouth and teeth, life satisfaction, and frequency of experiencing functional and social problems related to oral health...

Gary R Login
BACKGROUND AND OVERVIEW: Snap-On Smile (DenMat) appliances are tooth-borne overdentures used for a variety of temporary esthetic applications. However, their benefit can be limited in patients with high smile lines and altered gingival architecture because the teeth look too large. CASE DESCRIPTION: In this report, the author shows the chairside application of a silicone denture reline material used to recreate gingival anatomy on an overdenture fabricated from crystallized acetyl resin, the material used in a Snap-On Smile appliance...

#7
Richard J Vargo, Blake M Warner, Anitha Potluri, Joanne L Prasad
BACKGROUND AND OVERVIEW: Inappropriate self-treatment with topically applied therapeutic or nontherapeutic agents frequently results in mucosal burns. Although such chemical burns typically are associated with misuse of analgesics, investigators also have reported them in conjunction with topical application of a variety of other agents. CASE DESCRIPTION: The authors report an unusual case of a 49-year-old man seeking care for maxillary tooth pain who had an oral mucosal burn of the maxillary vestibule caused by topical application of crushed raw garlic...

BACKGROUND: Standardized dental diagnostic terminologies (SDDxTs) were introduced decades ago. Their use has been on the rise, accompanying the adoption of electronic health records (EHRs). One of the most broadly used terminologies is the Dental Diagnostic System (DDS). Our aim was to assess the adoption of SDDxTs by US dental schools by using the Rogers diffusion of innovations framework, focusing on the DDS. METHODS: The authors electronically surveyed clinic deans in all US dental schools (n = 61) to determine use of an EHR and SDDxT, perceived barriers to adoption of an SDDxT, and the effect of implementing an SDDxT on clinical productivity...

Purnima Hernandez, April N Kisamore
BACKGROUND AND OVERVIEW: There are no guidelines about when breast-feeding (BF) should be discontinued. In addition, investigators have not examined patient-provider communication regarding weaning strategies based on function and oral care management during prolonged BF. CASE DESCRIPTION: Suggestions to wean do not include strategies about how to achieve discontinuance. The authors conducted this case study to assist care providers in facilitation of such discussions with parents to minimize the risk of developing dental caries in older children who are breast-fed...

REVIEW
Luiz Fernando Noira Passos da Costa, Cristine da Silva Furtado Amaral, Davi da Silva Barbirato, Anna Thereza Thomé Leão, Mariana Fampa Fogacci
BACKGROUND: Through a systematic literature review, the authors evaluated the use of chlorhexidine (CHX) mouthwash as an adjunct to mechanical periodontal therapy for chronic periodontitis. TYPES OF STUDIES REVIEWED: The authors performed a systematic search by using PubMed (MEDLINE), Scopus, Scientific Electronic Library Online, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials. The authors selected randomized controlled clinical trials in which the investigators evaluated the probing depth (PD) and clinical attachment level (CAL) in test groups by using CHX as an adjuvant and in control groups and subject to mechanical periodontal therapy (scaling and root planing [SRP] 4-6 visits or 24 hours)...

#17
Jiang Wu, Yan Li, Yumei Zhang
BACKGROUND AND OVERVIEW: When treating patients with severely limited mouth openings, it is difficult for the dentist to obtain an impression and fabricate a removable partial denture (RPD) by using traditional methods. Intraoral scanning, computer-aided design, and 3-dimensional (3D) printing have provided alternative methods for fabricating dental prostheses. CASE DESCRIPTION: The authors present a case in which they aimed to improve the efficiency and quality of fabricating an RPD framework by integrating the technologies of intraoral scanning, computer-aided design, and 3D printing...
