Christin Löffler, Femke Böhmer
BACKGROUND: Abundant evidence in dentistry suggests that antibiotics are prescribed despite the existence of guidelines aiming to reduce the development of antibiotic resistance. This review investigated (1) which type of interventions aiming to optimise prescription of antibiotics exist in dentistry, (2) the effect of these interventions and (3) the specific strengths and limitations of the studies reporting on these interventions. METHOD: Literature search was based on Medline, Embase, Global Health, Cochrane CENTRAL, ClinicalTrials...

Women currently make up 40% of the dentist population in the Netherlands. On the basis of enrolment in educational programmes their share can be expected to grow to more than half. The literature shows gender differences in preferences regarding work setting and duration of the working week. Men and women also differ from each other with respect to the way dental care is provided. The presented data demonstrate an increase in the number of women working in dentistry and research data have confirmed the presumed differences between male and female dentists...

With a growing number of female dentists, changes in the collaboration between dentists and dental hygienists are possible. To assess the possible consequences of these changes in dentistry for cooperation with dental hygienists, two important aspects are discussed: differences in vision with respect to treatment and the profession and differences in communication styles. Female dentists seem to be more prevention-orientated and people-orientated and are therefore more like the group of female dental hygienists...

The differences between men and women in their participation in the labour force and education are diminishing: in 2015, 71% of all women between the ages of 20 and 65 had a paid job (in comparison with 82% of men) and the Emancipation monitor 2016 reveals that women more often receive higher education than men. In the study of medicine, this expresses itself in the fact that 68% of new students in 2015 were women. As a consequence the number of women doctors is increasing. The numbers for 2013 show that 65% of active dentists are men and 35% women...

As the first woman lecturer in prosthetic dentistry at the Dental Institute of the University of Utrecht, Jans Gretha Schuiringa (1887-1975) had to win a position in a rapidly developing field. She undeniably made a significant contribution to the development of dental education and more specifically to the field of dental surgical prosthetics. Her dedication to her patients led her to strive continuously for better methods of treatment. From time to time, however, her militant character provoked resistance from her colleagues, curators of the medical faculty and students...

Today clinicians have a variety of treatment modalities available to address the increasing number of implant procedures performed each year. Single-stage implant surgery is now commonly used in implant dentistry. With patient demands for immediate restoration, the utilization of 1-piece implants is gaining acceptance. This article reports the results of tapered 1-piece implants (Zimmer Biomet) placed in a single practice over a 10-year period. A total of 33 1-piece dental implants were placed in 24 patients and provisionally restored out of occlusion at the time of surgery...

Nanotechnology offers new tools for developing therapies to prevent and treat oral infections, particularly biofilm-dependent disorders, such as dental plaques and endodontic and periodontal diseases. Chlorhexidine (CHX) is a well-characterized antiseptic agent used in dentistry with broad spectrum activity. However, its application is limited due to inactivation in body fluid and cytotoxicity toward human cells, particularly at high concentrations. To overcome these limitations, we synthesized nanosystems composed of aminosilane-coated magnetic nanoparticles functionalized with chlorhexidine (MNP@CHX)...

The objective of this review was to consider compilation of evidence from literature and its interpretation. Evidence-based dentistry during its implementation has sometimes emphasized randomized clinical trials with exclusion of all other evidence. Systematic reviews must compile evidence from all study types, with the collected evidence processed through the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation system prior to their application in clinical decision-making. Evidence-based clinical practice should be based upon transparently reported evidence from all study types...

REVIEW
Hasan Ekmekcioglu, Meral Unur
Despite numerous technological and medical developments achieved in recent years, a significant amount of occupational health problems still exist in modern dentistry. The risk of eye injury is mostly attributed to the use of high-speed hand pieces and ultrasonic devices. A dental clinic may be the source of eye-related infection and injury because of mechanical, chemical, microbiological and electromagnetic irritants. Accidents may cause facial injuries that involve eyes of the clinicians, patients as well as dental assistants...

IT IS UNCLEAR, but studies suggest that it should be based largely on individual risk. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a 6-month interval for preventive dental visits (strength of recommendation [SOR]: C, expert opinion), but a 24-month interval does not result in an increased incidence of dental caries in healthy children and young adults or increased incidence of gingivitis in healthy adults (SOR: B, a single randomized controlled trial [RCT]). In adults with risk factors (eg, smoking or diabetes), visits at 6-month intervals are associated with a lower incidence of tooth loss (SOR: C, a retrospective cohort study)...
