OBJECTIVE: Dental treatment is often categorized as a moderately or severely painful experience; however, no clinical data reported by the patient and dentist currently exists to support this degree of pain. This has contributed possibly to the overprescribing of analgesics, in particular the opioid class of medications. The primary objective of the study was to document the dentists' postprocedural prescriptions and recommendations for analgesic medications and their effectiveness for a 5-day period...

The interest in repairing failed restorations has been growing; such a procedure may prolong the life span of defective direct and indirect dental restorations. The intraoral repair using resin-based composite materials has major benefits, as it preserves the main body of the restoration, avoids unnecessary removal of sound tooth structure, is an easy and fast treatment, avoids additional appointments, and is inexpensive. This case report demonstrates the use of nanohybrid Ormocer®, or organically modified ceramic, materials...

Mark Donaldson, Jason H Goodchild
Though uncommon, medical emergencies in the dental office are harrowing occurrences that can be the result of adverse drug reactions. Pharmacological antagonists have been developed for administration as reversal agents in emergency situations in which patients may have an untoward effect, typically caused by too much medication. Dental practitioners should be familiar with these agents to keep patients safe and help mitigate drug-induced medical emergencies. This article reviews the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic principles of pharmacological antagonists; it emphasizes six specific reversal agents as they relate to the clinical practice of dentistry: naloxone, flumazenil, epinephrine, diphenhydramine, phentolamine, and atropine...

The human papillomavirus (HPV) family has been associated with many cancers, including oral cancer. Recent studies have also revealed HPV presence from healthy adult and pediatric patient saliva samples, though much less is known about the oral prevalence of high-risk HPV in healthy children and adolescents. The primary goal of this project was to assess the prevalence of HPV within a pediatric dental clinic using non-invasively collected saliva. In brief, saliva was collected and DNA isolated to screen for HPV strains HPV6, HPV11, HPV16, and HPV18...

Mike Skramstad, Dennis J Fasbinder
Clinical application of zirconia has been expanding due to the high strength properties it offers. Initial use of zirconia was as a coping or substructure material replacing cast metal. More recent formulations have been introduced for monolithic zirconia contour designs. New chairside computer-aided design and computeraided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology has made it possible for dentists to deliver 3-unit bridges in a single appointment. This case report will present such a clinical application.

Depending on the case, predictably seating today's esthetic indirect restorations can be challenging. Ultimately, the cementation and adhesive materials selected, combined with the techniques used for their placement, can greatly affect the quality and efficient delivery of laboratory-fabricated restorations. New adhesive bonding and cementation materials have the potential to simplify the delivery of indirect restorations and simultaneously reduce and/or eliminate many of the challenges clinicians face during the placement process...

Recently, hybrid materials have been introduced to the dental market. Together with computer-assisted design/computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) composite resins, they form a new class of dental CAD/CAM materials that combine the positive effects of ceramics and composites. As bonding is essential for their clinical longevity, it is crucial to have a good understanding of their material properties and cementation protocols. This review offers clinicians an overview of available hybrid materials and recommendations for their respective adhesive placements...

The quality of the bond at the tooth-restoration interface is crucial to the clinical success of composite restorations. Not only is the adhesive crucial, but equally or even more important is the application. This article addresses pitfalls in the bonding technique, such as over-wetness/over-dryness, over-etching, airthinning, and evaporation. Dental adhesives that are considered forgiving are less technique sensitive, thus potentially yielding more reliable bonding under various clinical conditions.

Zirconia has become one of the most popular materials in dentistry. New high-translucent zirconia ceramics have favorable optical properties and can be applied as monolithic full-contour restorations in various clinical indications for posterior and anterior teeth. However, having reliable cementation protocols is fundamental for clinical success of indirect ceramic dental restorations, including those made from zirconia materials. Resin bonding supports ceramic restorations and is necessary for onlays, laminate veneers, and resinbonded fixed dental prostheses...

Adequate bonding between tooth structure and a composite is among the factors affecting long-term clinical success. Adhesives contain solvents, which are known to evaporate. The researchers sought to determine whether bond strength could be adversely affected when a package of a popular adhesive was left open during a patient visit.

This longitudinal study evaluated the clinical performance of 97 direct class I resin composite restorations after 3 years. The restorations were performed using 2 types of adhesive systems: (1) Adper™ Single Bond Plus (SB) (3M ESPE, 3mespe.com), which is a two-step etch-and-rinse system, and (2) Adper Scotchbond™ SE (SE) (3M ESPE), which is a two-step self-etching system. Two calibrated examiners evaluated the restorations using modified US Public Health Service criteria. The materials were applied following the manufacturer's instructions, and 15 patients received at least one of the two adhesive systems...

When patients are constrained financially to receive dental work, a staged approach can be an effective way for enabling treatment to proceed. In this case, a patient who had been in the practice for about 10 years and had a severely worn and eroded dentition finally opted to receive treatment in stages. A systematic approach was used to determine the proper postoperative position of the teeth. The subsequent treatment plan included the use of porcelain onlays and full-coverage crowns in the mandibular posterior along with provisional direct composite restorations in the maxillary dentition; the composites would be transitioned to porcelain crowns as the patient's finances would allow...

Carla Cohn
Traditionally, many clinicians tend to forego esthetic considerations when full-coverage restorations are indicated for pediatric patients with primary dentitions. However, the availability of new zirconia pediatric crowns and reliable techniques for cementation makes esthetic outcomes practical and consistent when restoring primary dentition. Two cases are described: a 3-year-old boy who presented with severe early childhood caries affecting both anterior and posterior teeth, and a 6-year-old boy who presented with extensive caries of his primary posterior dentition, including a molar requiring full coverage...

Raymond A Dionne
Recently proposed revisions to the American Dental Association's Guidelines for the Use of Sedation and General Anesthesia by Dentists, aimed at improving safety in dental offices, differentiate between levels of sedation based on drug-induced changes in physiologic and behavioral states. However, the author of this op-ed is concerned the proposed revisions may have far-reaching and unintended consequences.
