Coronectomy is the intentional partial removal of a tooth. Thereby the crown of the tooth is removed and the roots are left in place. Compared to the complete operative removal of a wisdom tooth, the incidence of inferior alveolar nerve injury (IANI) is lower. The aim of this study is a survey on the use and acceptance of wisdom tooth coronectomy in Switzerland. An anonymous questionnaire was sent to 266 dentists specialized in oral surgery or maxillofacial surgeons; 58.3% of the questionnaires were returned and could be assessed...

Aim: Intensive application of highly concentrated antimicrobials during scaling and root planing may be hazardous if swallowed in quantity. This study evaluates two dental isolation systems for fluid leakage in conjunction with a sham treatment of scaling and root planing. Materials and methods: Eight volunteers were randomly assigned to wear a conventional rubber dam (RD) and a combined suction and isolation device (IsoLite® system [IL]) alternatively on contralateral maxillary and mandibular quadrants. RD was cut between the canine and the first molar and was fixed on the first molar with a rubber dam clamp and with a tissue adhesive (Histoacryl) on the gingiva...

This manuscript provides an overview of therapeutic options for the problem of bleeding in a dentist’s office. Bleeding after tooth extraction is a very common finding in dental medicine and persistent blood in the mouth is obviously uncomfortable and sometimes terrifying for the patient. Most bleedings can be stopped simply with compression, in some cases a homeostatic therapy is necessary. For local compression, a swab with tranexamic acid is useful. If local compression is not sufficient, sutures are often an option...

In the context of tooth trauma, mostly the maxillary central front teeth are involved, whereby their roots are in some cases still in the developing stage (immature). Depending on the type of trauma, a necrosis of the pulp is the consequence or at least foreseeable. In order to preserve such a tooth, an endodontic therapy is inevitable. The disadvantage of conventional endodontic therapy methods of immature teeth (apexification, apexogenesis) is the root growth stop. Alternatively, the regeneration/revascularisation of the dental pulp (RP) was suggested, that allows a further root growth...

Vascular supply is key for maintenance of healthy tissue conditions but also with regard to healing following trauma or therapeutic interventions. The face is probably the most exposed part of the body and any changes of vascularity are readily visible (skin blanching, ecchymosis, hematoma, edema). With regard to the arterial supply, all vessels reaching the facial skin originate from the bilateral common carotid arteries. The ophthal­mic artery is considered the major arterial shunt between the internal and external carotid artery systems...

Antiplatelet agents with the active ingredients acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin® protect 100), clopidogrel (Iscover®, Plavix®), prasugrel (Efient®) or ticagrelor (Brilique™) prevent the clumping of platelets and thus the formation of small clots at constrictions of the coronary arteries or on the metal struts of stents in the coronary artery or in bypass grafts. Large-scale studies have shown that taken regularly, these drugs can extend life and help prevent heart attacks. Especially in patients with newly implanted stents, the combination of the above-mentioned agents prevents sudden complete occlusion of the vessel concerned...

The potential of high resolution, three-dimensional (3D) images which overcome limitations such as superimposition and anatomical noise of two-dimensional (2D) conventional imaging, has made cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) an increasingly popular imaging modality in many dental applications. It is in light of the increasingly prevalent use of CBCT, particularly in a primary dental care setting, that the goal of this review is to investigate what evidence-based guidance is available to the clinician to justify and reduce radiation risk of this higher dose imaging modality while maintaining diagnostically acceptable images...

The present study sought to test oral-care products available on the Swiss market, such as toothpastes and gels, with respect to the protection of enamel against erosive tooth wear. A total of 56 enamel specimens were divided into 7 groups (n = 8): F-TP = Migros Budget Anti-Caries Toothpaste (Negative Control); F+Sn3500-TP = Elmex Erosion Protection Toothpaste (Positive Control); F-TP + F+Oligopep-Gel = Migros Budget Anti-Caries Toothpaste + Emofluor Protect Gel Professional; F+Sn3120-Gel = Emofluor Gel Intensive Care; F+Oligopep-TP = Candida Protect Professional Toothpaste; F+Sn1260-TP = Emoform-F Protect Toothpaste; and F+Sn3440-TP = Sensodyne Repair & Protect Toothpaste...

The aim of this retrospective study was to investigate the clinical outcome of Dalbo®-Rotex® retention elements in a private practice. The majority of the retention elements was fixed with self-adhesive composite cement, and in almost 40% the exposed root surface was additionally covered with composite. The success rate of 96.3% after 24 months in a total of 50 included patients (response rate 48.5%) demonstrated that a simple and cost-effective fixation of removable dentures using prefabricated, chair-side inserted retention elements is feasible...

The aim of the present study was to summarize the risk factors for bruxism that were identified by a systematic search of the literature published between 2007 and 2016. Depending on the size of the odds ratios (ORs) and the lower limit of the 95% confidence intervals indicated by the reports, four risk categories were differentiated. Among others, emotional stress, consumption of tobacco, alcohol, or coffee, sleep apnea syndrome, and anxiety disorders were recognized as important factors among adults. In children and adolescents, apart from distress, behavioral abnormalities and sleep disturbances predominated...

The modification of the implant surface influences implant osseointegration. A physico-chemical means to modify implant surfaces is the creation of hydrophilic surfaces. The aim is an accelerated osseointegration for earlier implant loading and possibly the increase of bone quantity and quality. This review gives an update on the current scientific knowledge on hydrophilic implant surfaces. In vitro, hydrophilic titanium surfaces exhibit different positive effects on hard and soft tissues with significant differences to hydrophobic surfaces...

This study was to analyse the abrasive wear of differently composed diamond dentifrices loaded with 2.4 μm diamond particles on dentine and enamel surfaces in vitro. Bovine specimens were brushed with a diamond-loaded dentifrice (DD2; 2 g particles/kg), a diamond-loaded dentifrice (1.5 g/kg) containing 20% hydrated silica as extra abrasive (DD1.5+S), or a diamond-loaded dentifrice (3 g/kg) containing 20% hydrated silica abrasive (DD3+S). Values were compared to those obtained with Colgate Total (CT) and Elmex Sensitive plus (ES)...

It was the aim of the current in vitro study to test the erosion-preventive potential of an experimental surface sealant (K-0184) and currently marketed self-etch adhesive systems under abrasive conditions. Ninety-six dentine specimens were randomly allocated to eight groups (n=12): (1) positive control (no treatment), (2) K-0184, (3) Shield Force Plus, (4) Xeno Select, (5) Scotchbond Universal, (6) Adhese Universal, (7) OptiBond All-In-One, and (8) Clearfil SE Bond. Before and after sealing, dentine specimens were measured profilometrically to determine the layer thickness of the protective agents...

Eroded enamel is more susceptible to abrasive wear than sound enamel. New toothpastes utilizing diamond particles as abrasives have been developed. The present study investigated the abrasive wear of eroded enamel by three commercially available toothpastes (one containing diamond particles) and compared it to the respective wear of sound enamel caused by these toothpastes. Seventy-two bovine enamel samples were randomly allocated to six groups (S1–S3 and E1–E3; n=12). Samples were submitted to an abrasive (S1–S3) or erosion plus abrasion (E1–E3) cycling...
