The aim of the present report was to detail the advantages of using 3-dimensional (3D) prototyping in the planning, modeling, and manufacturing of an immediate palatal obturator for a 62-year-old man who underwent a left total maxillectomy to remove a solid, multicystic ameloblastoma. The prosthesis provided favorable restoration of stomatognathic functions, including speech, swallowing, and mastication. The use of an immediate obturator prosthesis made with 3D technology is an important aid in the treatment of patients diagnosed with tumors in the head and neck region...

Lingual mandibular bone depressions mainly affect the posterior region of the mandible. Depressions in the anterior region are rare, frequently posing difficulties in diagnosis. The aim of this article is to present a case of an anterior lingual mandibular bone depression (ALMBD) that was radiographically superimposed on the roots of anterior teeth. A 43-year-old man was referred for evaluation of a slight depression on the lingual surface of the anterior mandible. The depression was associated with a well-defined radiolucent area superimposed on the roots of the right canine and incisors...

Osteomas are benign, asymptomatic fibro-osseous tumors that are most commonly observed in the paranasal sinuses and sometimes are found in imaging examinations that were taken for other reasons. Giant osteomas are rarely found in the frontal and ethmoid sinuses but, when they are, they may cause intracranial and orbital complications. The aims of this case report are to describe a frontoethmoid osteoma in a 40-year-old woman, discuss the characteristics of this lesion through cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging, and review the options for treatment...

Monika Pal, Kanishk Gupta, Santhosh Kumar, Pratibha Gopalkrishna
Conventional treatment for the management of 2- to 3-walled intrabony defects is the use of allograft or alloplasts. Autogenous grafts are the gold standard because of their osteogenic potential. Mandibular tori are an ideal site for harvesting bone because their excision causes no structural, esthetic, or functional compromise to the patient. This case report describes the use of an autogenous graft obtained from a mandibular torus. The graft was utilized, in particulate form, to fill an intrabony defect at the mandibular right central incisor...

Accidental sodium hypochlorite extrusion can occur during endodontic irrigation procedures. The symptoms appear immediately and include severe pain, swelling, and probable tissue necrosis adjacent to the root of the treated tooth. Treatment of sodium hypochlorite extrusion involves immediate and copious saline irrigation to neutralize the area and prescription of analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antibiotic medications. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) might be useful as an adjuvant treatment for damaged soft tissues to improve healing...

Adherence to clinical guidelines is recommended to promote appropriate antibiotic use in dentistry and address concerns about increasing antibiotic resistance. Guidelines for antibiotic prophylaxis before invasive dental procedures were updated in 2007 and 2015. In an effort to inform antibiotic stewardship efforts, a study was undertaken to assess the knowledge of antibiotic usage guidelines and antibiotic-prescribing practices among Minnesota dentists. During September 2015, a 22-question online survey was sent to the state dental association membership...

Amber D Riley
Implantable cardiac devices are increasingly common in the dental patient population. These devices include cardiac pacemakers, implantable cardioverters-defibrillators, and combination designs. To safely follow through with treatment, the clinician first must identify the patient's underlying medical condition warranting the device and consider the condition as well as the device in determining diagnosis, drug selection, appointment length, follow-up, and outcome expectations. Modern implantable devices are engineered to be resistant to electromagnetic field changes in the day-to-day activities of the wearer, and little of the technology used in dentistry today has been shown to create an electromagnetic field strong enough to have the potential to affect performance of an implantable cardiac device...

Outcomes for treatment, overall oral health status, and periodontal disease progression in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) have been associated with glycemic control as measured by hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels. Due to the high prevalence of T2DM among patient populations in the United States, this study sought to assess baseline levels of glycemic control for patients with a known diagnosis of T2DM who were under the care of a physician and to identify management solutions for these patients...

Acidic beverage consumption is a well-recognized contributor to extrinsic dental erosion. Although the pH values of some commercially available bottled waters are below neutral pH, water is still considered to be a safe and healthy choice. Artificial flavoring liquids or powders, known as water enhancers (WEs), have been introduced to the market to modify the taste of water. The purposes of the present study were to measure the pH and titratable acidity of WEs and to perform gravimetric analysis of teeth immersed in solutions of WEs mixed with different brands of bottled water in order to determine the erosive potential in vitro...

The characteristics of prosthetic implant components, such as the type, material, and surface roughness of abutments, can affect biofilm formation. Since an ideal abutment surface for the reduction of bacterial adhesion has yet to be found, this in vitro study aimed to quantify biofilm formation on laser-treated titanium, zirconia, and titanium surfaces. Sterile titanium, zirconia, and laser-treated titanium discs were placed in sterile 48-well plates. Biofilm formation was induced by adding sterilized, unstimulated human saliva and suspensions of Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg), Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (Aa), and Prevotella intermedia (Pi) to the wells...

Manufacturers have recently introduced surface primers and pretreatment solutions that reportedly simplify the bonding process of resin cements to ceramics through various combinations of etchant and coupling agents. This study evaluated the shear bond strength (SBS) of a resin cement to a lithium disilicate glass-ceramic material pretreated with various new surface treatment solutions and compared the results to those of a control group prepared with the traditional application of hydrofluoric acid (HF) and silane...

Over the past decade, targeted therapies have emerged as promising forms of cancer treatment and are increasingly included in chemotherapeutic regimens for an ever-growing list of human cancers. Targeted therapies are so-named due to their specific targeting of dysregulated signaling pathways in cancer cells. This enhanced discrimination between tumor and normal cells is a more promising and efficacious approach to cancer treatment than conventional cytotoxic chemotherapy. However, targeted therapies still have side effects, and some manifest in the oral cavity...
