Dental errors

Jingyi Xiao, Dawei Yang, Qiwen Li, Weidong Tian, Weihua Guo
BACKGROUND: The concept of establishing a dental stem cell (DSC) bank for oral and maxillofacial regeneration has become of great interest but it remains at a primitive stage. The routine application of serum-containing conditions for human DSC (hDSC) culture is in great controversy considering that the animal-originated serum can cause serious ethical concerns and lead to increasingly irrelevant variables, errors, and poor repeatability of experiment results. Thus, this study aimed to establish a safe, stable and efficient hDSC serum-free culturing system for future DSC bank usage...

Estimation of missing digital information is mostly addressed by one or two-dimensional signal processing methods; however, this problem can emerge in multi-dimensional data including 3D images. Examples of 3D images dealing with missing edge information are often found using dental micro-CT, where the natural contours of dental enamel and dentine are partially dissolved or lost by caries. In this paper, we present a novel sequential approach to estimate the missing surface of an object. First, an initial correct contour is determined interactively or automatically, for the starting slice...

In recent years the T-Scan system has introduced the possibility of importing digitization of dental arches to its registrations. This is a remarkable advance, which allows an intuitive display of the location of the gathered dynamic data on the denture. Nevertheless, today's usual method of manually positioning the arch in relation to the T-Scan's force registration gives rise to the possibility of human error. In order to guarantee a good alignment between the dynamic registration and 3D digital casts, a specific method was developed...

BACKGROUND: Incisor loss constitutes a strong aesthetic and psychologic traumatism for the patient and it remains a challenging situation for the dental practitioner because of the necessity to rapidly replace the lacking tooth. Various therapeutic procedures have been proposed to replace the incisor concerned, for example by using a removable partial denture. However, the manufacturing of such a denture with classical procedures is often subject to processing errors and inaccuracies...

It is challenging to achieve high implant accuracy in dental implant placement, because high risk tissues need to be avoided. In this study, we present an augmented reality (AR) surgical navigation with an accurate cone beam computed tomography (CBCT)-patient registration method to provide clinically desired dental implant accuracy. A registration device is used for registration between preoperative data and patient outside the patient's mouth. After registration, the registration device is worn on the patient's teeth for tracking the patient...

The term "synovial sarcoma (SS)" is a histological error, a misnomer as it neither arises from nor differentiates toward synovium. Head and neck region is the most commonly affected region after extremities, representing 5% of all cases. This case report focuses to discuss a case of a SS that was diagnosed after an inadvertent root canal therapy. A 46-year-old male came to the outpatient department with a chief complaint of pain and swelling in his upper right back tooth region since 15 days. An ulceroproliferative mass of was observed protruding from the gingivobuccal sulcus from 11 to 15 tooth region obliterating the vestibule...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this case report is to describe the innovative concept of a prototype use in a digital implant workflow. A prototype is required for simultaneous evaluation of the accuracy of a dental impression and esthetic and functional parameters before final framework realization. CASE DESCRIPTION: Three digital impressions were obtained to create a master file, which contained information on the 3-dimensional (3D) position of the implant, the gingival architecture, and the esthetic and functional features of the provisional restoration...

AIM: The human dentition contains many features which can be used to identify an individual from the dentition or from bite marks created and bite mark evidence may be used to link a suspect to a crime. The aim of this research was to investigate the effect of orthodontic treatment on the uniqueness of the human anterior dentition by comparison of the number of dental shape matches between pre- and post-treatment dental casts for a group of patients who have undergone orthodontic treatment (dental braces) to improve the alignment of their teeth...

In X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH), inherited loss-of-function mutations in the PHEX gene cause excess circulating levels of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23), leading to lifelong renal phosphate wasting and hypophosphatemia. Adults with XLH present with chronic musculoskeletal pain and stiffness, short stature, lower limb deformities, fractures, and pseudofractures due to osteomalacia, accelerated osteoarthritis, dental abscesses, and enthesopathy. Burosumab, a fully human monoclonal antibody, binds and inhibits FGF23 to correct hypophosphatemia...

Given that computed tomography (CT) reconstruction algorithm based on compressed sensing (CS) results in blurring edges, we propose a modified Canny operator that assists CS algorithm to accurately capture object's edge to preserve and further enhance their contrasts in the reconstructed image, thereby improving image quality. We modified two procedures of traditional Canny operator namely non-maximum suppression and edge tracking by hysteresis according to the characteristics of low-dose CT reconstruction, and proposed two major modifications: double-response edge detection and directional edge tracking...

Dental imaging has seen a rapid technological advance over the last several years. Not only has most x-ray based diagnostic technology been digitized, with the possibility of low dose 3D computed tomography imaging, but many novel optical imaging techniques have now also been adopted in a more therapeutic imaging of the dental patient. When combining and manipulating such different digital image data, clinicians can now easily plan and simulate treatments on-screen, use 3D printed models and aids to assist in accurate transfer of the virtual planning or even follow-up their treatments over time...

Causal mediation analysis seeks to decompose the effect of a treatment or exposure among multiple possible paths and provide casually interpretable path-specific effect estimates. Recent advances have extended causal mediation analysis to situations with a sequence of mediators or multiple contemporaneous mediators. However, available methods still have limitations, and computational and other challenges remain. The present paper provides an extended causal mediation and path analysis methodology. The new method, implemented in the new R package, gmediation (described in a companion paper), accommodates both a sequence (two stages) of mediators and multiple mediators at each stage, and allows for multiple types of outcomes following generalized linear models...

When the age of an individual is unknown, age assessment refers to the procedures through which authorities try to establish the chronological age of an individual. Dental evidence demonstrated to be very effective in estimating age and dental mineralization is largely deemed a process scarcely influenced by major diseases and nutritional or environmental factors which can affect child growth. This research aims to understand the possible influence of genetic syndromes on dental maturation of affected individuals...
