The first modern dental institutes were established in Europe and in the USA during the 1840s. At that period there wasn't a single qualified doctor in Palestine, not to mention a professional dentist. A couple of decades later, as the number of Christian pilgrims grew, some modern hospitals were established and a few non-Jewish dentists opened their clinics in Jerusalem, which was then and in the following decades, the region's largest city. In Europe, dentistry became a popular profession among Jews in general and among Jewish women in particular...

Diagnosis and management of lip pathologies should be part of the dentists' responsibilities. Lip pathologies might affect patient's function, appearance and quality of life. The routine clinical examination of the oral cavity includes lip examination--changes in lip color, size or texture should be recognized during the examination, as well as noticing any habit such as lip licking or mouth breathing.The aim of the review is to present common external lip lesions. Color changes--oral melanotic macule is a localized benign pigmented lesion...

Although most dental and periodontal diseases are caused by bacteria, the usual therapy is mechanical/surgical rather than antimicrobial medications. However, sometimes antibiotic administration may be necessary in addition to or as an alternative to the surgical/mechanical treatment. Many studies have shown that the misuse of antibiotics by dentists may be mostly attributed to unnecessity or inefficient regimen, and could contribute to bacterial resistance to antibiotics. The article presents practical guidelines to the administration of antibiotics in the dental office...

The rapidly changing field of maxillofacial diagnostic imaging provides the clinician with tools for superior diagnostic capabilities and improved treatment planning improving and thus patient's outcome. There are currently growing number of imaging modalities available in the maxillofacial region, of which a choice must be made according to the least invasive and the most diagnostic option. The introduction of Cone-Beam-Computerized Tomography (CBCT) allows for 3-dimensional imaging volume with improved spatial resolution, along with increased responsibilities of the referring clinician...

G Almoznino, Y Zadik
Oral and oropharyngeal cancer is amongst the most common and fatal malignant diseases worldwide, with oral squamous cell carcinomas constitute more than 90% of all lesions. This article follows the oral cancer patient from the point of view of the oral medicine practitioner; from the stage of the potentially malignant disorders to the diagnosis of cancer, to the management of short-term comlications of the cancer therapy, to the stage of long-term follow up and management of lifelong oral complications of the oncologic treatment...

Caries and periodontal disease are the most common pathologies encountered by general dental practitioners on a daily basis. Although less frequently, the oral cavity is also affected by a plethora of pathologic lesions that may represent either a local process or may be a manifestation of systemic conditions. The etiology of these lesions is diverse and ranges from congenital/ developmental, reactive, to neoplastic (benign and malignant), metabolic and hereditary. These lesions are expected to be recognized by the dental clinicians whose main concern would be to achieve a prompt and accurate microscopic diagnosis...

Type 2 Diabetes is a non-curable multi system disease that affect around 9% of the world population. Therefore, the incidence for the general dentist to come across a diabetic patient is very high. The medical treatment in diabetes is graded according to the severity of the disease. In the last decade new drugs and treatment modalities were developed. The implication of diabetes and its complications in the oral cavity are significant. Beside the emergency events that might take place in a diabetic patient, one must take under consideration the influence of the dental treatment on the glycemic control and vis-a-vis the influence of the glycemic control on the oral tissue health and response for treatment...

The oral cavity-body relationships are bi-directional: oral diseases affect the welfare and health of the individual, while diseases and conditions of organs and tissues in the human body affect oral health. The global policy of the World Health Organization is to improve oral health in the 21st century as an integral part of promoting our general health. During the recent years the knowledge of the dental profession has grown exponentially and widened its fields of interest and this has led to impressive advances at both clinical and research levels...

REVIEW
O Yitschaky, M Segev-Neuhof, A Laviv
The debate regarding prophylactic extraction of mandibular third molar (Wisdom teeth) is not new. There is wide agreement among clinicians and researchers that an extraction in young age is easier and safer, but it may result in overtreatment, which means an unnecessary extraction of teeth that might have been functional and healthy. In order to avoid such overtreatment the clinician is obliged to be able to predict accurately the chances of third molar eruption, years before they are due to erupt. Additionally, the clinician has to estimate the chances for future pathology or infection that will force the patient to extract the tooth in years to come...

REVIEW
E Rosen, I Tsesis
AIM: To present rational case selection criteria for the use of CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) in endodontics. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This article reviews the literature concerning the benefits of CBCT in endodontics, alongside its radiation risks, and present case selection criteria for referral of endodontic patients to CBCT. RESULTS: Up to date, the expected ultimate benefit of CBCT to the endodontic patient is yet uncertain, and the current literature is mainly restricted to its technical efficacy...

Zoster (shingles) is assumed to affect 10-20% of the individuals who have been exposed to the varicella zoster virus (VZV). It is expected to develop among the elderly, usually on the background of a weakened immune system. In those cases that the trigeminal branches are involved by zoster, unilateral mucosal and cutaneous vesiculo-ulcerative lesions will develop. Intense pain usually precedes the overt lesions of zoster, which sometimes might mimic acute pain of dental origin. Careful anamnesis and thorough clinical examination should lead to a correct diagnosis...

Y Goldman, N Yarom
Metastases to the oral cavity are rare. However, in 25% of cases, oral symptoms will be the first sign of metastatic disease. The incidence of jaws metastases is twice as high as the incidence of metastases to the soft tissues of the oral cavity. In some cases, jaws metastases can mimic dental or periodontal pain. We report a case of a 67 year old female who was referred to our clinic because of severe pain on her left posterior mandible which was not relieved by endodontic treatment of the first and second molar...

INTRODUCTION: Furcated root and root canal separation are anatomic variations of mandibular canines. Other studies found that up to 20% of mandibular canines have root canal separation and up to 6.8% are bifurcated teeth. The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of two-rooted mandibular canines and the root canal morphology of mandibular canines. METHODS: A total of 1,020 Israeli patients' cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans were screened and evaluated...

OBJECTIVE: No controlled clinical study has evaluated Oral Health Related Quality of Life (OHRQOL) of immediately placed and loaded implants retaining mandibular overdentures. This pilot study evaluated the impact of immediate loading of delayed versus immediately placed dental implants on overdenture patients' OHRQOL. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two patient treatment groups received a maxillary conventional complete denture, opposing a mandibular overdenture immediately loaded on implants with ball attachments; In group one a delayed implant placement surgical protocol was followed, whereas in group two, patients had mandibular teeth extracted and two implants immediately placed...

J Meyerson, T Ratson
Dental anxiety is quite common and may lead to dental neglect due to lack of regular visits to the dental clinic. The difficulties in managing anxious patients are characterized by prolonged visits, a tendency to cancel appointments and a tense atmo- sphere during treatment. The use of hypnosis while treating an anxious patient can help create a posi- tive environment and shorten the duration of dental appointments as well. The article describes a case in which hypnosis was used while treating a patient who had suffered from dental anxiety for over 20 years...

Digital dentistry and digital smile design are both components of modern dentistry. The combination of the two enables the dentist to simulate the desired outcome, share the mock up with the patient and coordinate his or her expectations with the probable esthetic outcome. In this article a case is presented of anterior restorations performed to improve the smile and esthetics of the patient, combining the digital smile design (by Christian Coachman) and the Avatar Digital smile aide of the Cerec SW4 (sirona Germany) software for designing and the MCxI inlab milling unit for the fabrication...
