Non-carious cervical lesions (NCCLs) were examined in 6541 extracted human teeth and classified based on the morphology of the lesions. As a result, NCCLs were found on 38.7% of teeth (41.6% on maxillary teeth and 36.0% on mandibular teeth), and were most frequent on canines and first premolars. According to the new method of classification, the morphology of NCCLs was classified both by the surface contour (SC) and by the cross-sectional contour (CC). Three types of NCCLs appeared to be dominant. The causes of these NCCLs were discussed based on their morphologies, positions where these NCCLs were frequently found, and the results of previous studies...

Treatment strategies for medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) remain controversial. Although the AAOMS suggests a conservative approach, a surgical management with necrosectomy is often required when conservative management has failed. Moreover, recent studies have shown promising results using an early stage surgical treatment. Over the past decade, cell-based bone regeneration utilizing bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) received increased attention. MSCs are known to promote wound healing and induce new bone formation in compromised tissue...
