Due to improvements in esthetic dentistry, the number of patients seeking to obtain a more harmonious smile has increased. A 40-year-old woman was referred for treatment because she was dissatisfied with the effect that diastemas and a conoid tooth had on her smile. Her maxillary anterior teeth were relatively short, resulting in a compromised esthetic relationship between height and width. Orthodontic treatment for better distribution of her teeth was recommended to the patient, but she refused, wanting faster and less expensive treatment...

The goal of this article is to show the advantages of the Cone Beam Computerized Tomography (CBCT) compared to classical Computerized Tomography (CT) and to describe several clinical applications of interest with this rather new technology. Invented practically for dentistry, in particular in implantology, the CBCT found major indications in paranasal sinus imaging, in maxillofacial and oral surgery, in periodontology, endodontics and orthodontics. CBCT is very useful to characterize various lesions of jaws with a reserve concerning the study of soft tissues (in that case, an MRI or CT with contrast injection should be preferred)...

Orthodontic brackets made from stainless steel were introduced in dentistry, though they have less ability in reducing enamel demineralization and are not successful in preventing microbial as well as biofilm growth. In this study, we evaluated the significant role of different brackets in reducing enamel demineralization indirectly. Results from different tests indicate the significant reduction in adhesion, biofilm formation and slow growth of tested bacterial species on brackets coated with Ag + TiO2 and found to be statistically significant lower than control...

Topical anesthetics act on the peripheral nerves and reduce the sensation of pain at the site of application. In dentistry, they are used to control local pain caused by needling, placement of orthodontic bands, the vomiting reflex, oral mucositis, and rubber-dam clamp placement. Traditional topical anesthetics contain lidocaine or benzocaine as active ingredients and are used in the form of solutions, creams, gels, and sprays. Eutectic mixtures of local anesthesia cream, a mixture of various topical anesthetics, has been reported to be more potent than other anesthetics...

A maxillary midline diastema (MMD) is a common complaint of dental patients. An MMD can be closed with treatment from different disciplines, including operative dentistry and orthodontics. A comprehensive smile analysis is also a necessity before beginning treatment. This article highlights the closure of a 3-mm MMD by using a combination of orthodontics and direct composite resin restorations.

There are so many compliments to Dr. Steven Lindauer that is hard for one to figure where to start from… Well, travelling backwards in time, all the way to the year 2000, I went to Virginia to study English at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), in Richmond, Virginia, USA. During my daily walks to the English school, I used to pass by the School of Dentistry, where the Department of Orthodontics was. That was the place where my very first "contact" with the VCU happened. In 2015, 15 years later, I had the pleasure to go back to the VCU and spend two days with Dr...

The final outcome of dental treatment needs to be not only clinically sufficient, but also esthetically pleasing. Bilateral symmetry in the maxillary incisor teeth is of significant importance in esthetic dentistry. In restorative dentistry, symmetry refers to the appearance of balance around the dental midline. The purpose of this study was to measure and compare the maxillary incisor teeth dimensions from both sides of the dental midline, in order to asses if this symmetry occurs naturally. From the student community population at Tel Aviv University, 66 students between the ages of 20-35 (35 males, 31 females) were enrolled and gave consent...
