One of the most difficult achievements in the periodontal therapy is the reconstruction of interdental papilla that has been lost by periodontal disease. The poor esthetic appearance caused by the "black triangle," especially in the maxillary anterior region has been a concern for both patients and professionals. However, when the papilla destruction is followed by loss of contact point, the use of different specialties is usually necessary to restore the interproximal embrasure. This clinical case report describes an interdisciplinary (periodontic-orthodontic-restorative) approach for the treatment of a patient with severe case of papilla destruction in an esthetic zone...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this clinical report was to describe the detection of fluorescent resin residue after orthodontic bracket debonding with two UV light devices and analyze the surface morphology of enamel after 1 year. CLINICAL CONSIDERATIONS: A 22-year-old woman had orthodontic brackets removed by a previous dentist; however, resin residue was left on the enamel of the maxillary teeth. After confirming the fluorescent property of the resin, different protocols were used for each half of the maxillary arch...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the color of a bis-acryl resin after polishing, aging, and colorants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From the 140 disks obtained, 35 were not polished (NP), 35 were polished with 3-μm (3P), 35 with 3- and 1-μm (1P), and 35 with 3-, 1-, and 0.5-μm sized particles (05P). Five disks of each group were thermocycled for 20, 100, and 200 cycles. Sixty disks were thermocycled and kept in beverages (tea, wine, and coffee) after four cycles.

OBJECTIVE: To comprehensively assess dental students' perception of facial, dental and smile esthetics and to assess whether such a perception varies by gender, clinical training, and Grade Point Average (GPA). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Series of photographs were digitally manipulated involving three facial, two smile, four dental, and one gingival components. Students in preclinical and clinical levels evaluated the original and manipulated images using a visual analogue scale scored from 1 to 5 where 5 is the standard image and 1 is the least pleasant one...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate endodontically treated molar fracture resistance restored with CAD/CAM lithium disilicate (LDS) crowns with different amalgam core preparation design. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighty-four recently extracted mandibular third molars were divided into seven groups (n = 12) and embedded in autopolymerizing resin. Coronal tooth structure was removed, pulp chamber exposed, and pulpal remnants removed. One group received LDS endocrowns, while three groups received amalgam cores with 2, 1, and 0 dentin axial wall heights (AWH)...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to systematically review all the clinical articles about all-ceramic resin-bonded fixed dental prosthesis (RBFDP) in the anterior region and assess their designs, clinical procedures, and survival rates. A systematic review was conducted after searching electronic databases PubMed/Medline and EBSCOhost Research Databases for articles published in English between 1987 and July 2017. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The inclusion criteria were selected as all clinical studies, original design clinical reports, and clinical reports (follow-up time more than 1 year) as all clinical information in the literature are desired to be included in the present review...

OBJECTIVE: This in vitro study was conducted to assess the marginal adaptation and fracture resistance of computer aided design/computer aided manufacturer (CAD-CAM) fabricated endocrowns restoring endodontically treated molars using different machinable blocks with thermomechanical loading protocols. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Devitalized mandibular molars were prepared in a standardized way and divided into 4 groups (n = 10) to receive CAD/CAM fabricated endocrowns using four materials (Lithium disilicate ceramics, polymer infiltrated ceramics, zirconia-reinforced lithium silicate ceramics and resin nanoceramics...

OBJECTIVE: The use of allogeneic bone grafts for alveolar ridge reconstruction has become an often-discussed alternative to augmentation procedures using autografts. Nevertheless, there still is a lack of literature concerning long-time experiences of allografts for alveolar ridge reconstruction. Especially the results of the use of allogeneic bone blocks for mandible reconstructions need to be further investigated. CLINICAL CONSIDERATIONS: In this case report, we present the use of customized allogenic bone blocks in Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) procedures for severely deficient mandibulary bones, the implantation after a healing period of 5 month and the 24-month follow-up data...

OBJECTIVE: To test the effects of different adhesive protocols and silane application on the adhesive durability to a Lithium Disilicate reinforced glass ceramic. METHODS: Forty disks of 13 mm diameter (E.max Press) were used. After etching with 9.5% HF for 20 seconds, disks were randomly assigned into 4 groups according to the adhesive/silane protocol: silane application only (SIL); silane application followed by adhesive (SILXP-XP Bond); silane-containing adhesive (SBU-ScotchBond Universal); silane application followed by silane-containing adhesive (SILSBU)...
