BACKGROUND: Bruxism is a sleep disorder characterized by grinding and clenching of the teeth that may be related to irreversible tooth injuries. It is a prevalent condition occurring in up to 31% of adults. However, there is no definitive answer as to which of the many currently available treatments (including drug therapy, intramuscular injections, physiotherapy, biofeedback, kinesiotherapy, use of intraoral devices, or psychological therapy) is the best for the clinical management of the different manifestations of bruxism...

The purpose of this study was to investigate the use and selection of materials for indirect restorations by dentists in Saudi Arabia. A structured 18-item questionnaire was designed and sent via email to all dentists with active memberships in the Saudi Dental Society. A total of 373 dentists (20.2%) out of the 1,846 contacted answered the questionnaire. The majority of the responding dentists (81.5%) prefer to use porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns for posterior teeth, while 77.5% use all-ceramic crowns for anterior teeth...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to compare the 5-year outcomes of glass fiber composite with cast posts and cores for the restoration of endodontically treated teeth. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 143 patients in need of 203 full ceramic restorations on endodontically treated teeth were included. After primary stratification based on the need for post or no post, teeth were randomly allotted to test group 1 (prefabricated glass fiber posts), 2 (custom-made glass fiber posts), or 3 (composite cores without posts)...

This study aimed to evaluate the effect of the configuration of implants supporting a four-unit fixed partial denture on load distribution. An epoxy resin model missing teeth from the first premolar to the second molar was used. Three-dimensional piezoelectric force transducers were set on implants placed in the missing teeth area with a four-unit experimental superstructure. Three-dimensional loads on the implants were measured with four different implant configurations when a static load of 100 N was applied...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of the present study was to assess the effect of erbium, chromium: yttrium-scandium-gallium-garnet (Er,Cr:YSGG) laser-activated irrigation (LAI) of NaOCl on the push-out bond strength of furcal perforations repaired with ProRoot mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) and Biodentine. BACKGROUND DATA: Several studies investigated the adhesion of calcium silicate-based cements after exposure to endodontic irrigants, while effect of LAI on bond strength remains to be elucidated...

Objective: To identify adolescents' self-perception of dental fluorosis from two areas with different socioeconomic levels. Methods: A cross-sectional, descriptive study was conducted with 15-year-old youths by applying a questionnaire designed and validated to assess self-perceptions of dental fluorosis in two areas with different socioeconomic statuses (SESs). Fluorosis was clinically evaluated by applying the Thylstrup and Fejerkov (TF) index on the upper front teeth. Results: A total of 308 adolescents were included in the study...

The aim of this study was to compare the apical centring ability of incisal-shifted access (ISA) with that of traditional lingual access (TLA). Fifteen three-dimensional printed resin models were prepared from the computed tomography data for a human maxillary central incisor and divided into ISA (n = 7), TLA (n = 7) and control (n = 1) groups. After access preparation, these models were shaped to the working length using K-files up to #40, followed by step-back procedures. An apical portion of the model was removed at 0...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of several irrigation protocols in the removal of calcium hydroxide [Ca(OH)2 ] from simulated internal root resorption cavities in a complex root canal anatomy model. The 20° to 35° curved mesiobuccal roots of 94 maxillary molars were sectioned longitudinally; internal resorption cavities were prepared in the apical third of the canal walls. Calcium hydroxide was placed into the cavities and the root halves reassembled. Four teeth were used as controls, and 90 teeth were randomly divided into six experimental groups (n = 15), according to the irrigation protocols used: syringe irrigation; H2 O2 (HP); Navitip FX; Vibringe-syringe; Vibringe-NaviTip FX; ultrasonically activated irrigation (UAI) using an ultrasonic K-file...

Objectives To evaluate long-term outcomes of modified crown lengthening procedures for crown-root fractured teeth, and to analyse factors that affect the periodontal health of the treated teeth.Methods The present study retrospectively analysed data from 22 patients (13 males and 9 females) who had presented with crown-root fractured teeth and received modified crown lengthening procedures combined with crown restoration for ≥13 months. In total, 26 crown-root fractured teeth were treated and examined for plaque index, probing depth, bleeding index, bleeding on probing, mobility and the crown margin location...

PURPOSE: To study whether the shades of the 3D-Master System were grouped and represented in the chromatic space according to the three-color coordinates of value, chroma, and hue. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Maxillary central incisor color was measured on tooth surfaces through the Easyshade Compact spectrophotometer using 1361 participants aged between 16 and 89. The natural (not bleached teeth) color of the middle thirds was registered in the 3D-Master System nomenclature and in the CIELCh system...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the fracture resistance of endodontically treated teeth with a novel Zirconia (Zr) nano-particle filler containing bulk fill resin composite. METHODS: Forty-five freshly extracted maxillary central incisors were endodontically treated using conventional step back preparation and warm lateral condensation filling. Post space preparation was performed using drills compatible for fiber posts (Rely X Fiber Post) on all teeth (n=45), and posts were cemented using self etch resin cement (Rely X Unicem)...

The carving of a complex amalgam restoration may occasionally result in light proximal contact with the adjacent tooth. The purpose of this study was to investigate the strength of complex amalgam restorations repaired with a proximal slot amalgam preparation. Extracted human third molars of similar coronal size were sectioned 1 mm apical to the height of the contour using a saw and were randomly distributed into 9 groups of 10 teeth each. One pin was placed at each line angle of the flattened dentinal tooth surface...

Parkinson's disease (PD) is characterized by tremors and cognitive issues, and is due to the death of dopaminergic (DA-ergic) neurons in brain circuits that are responsible for producing neurotransmitter dopamine (DA). Currently, cell replacement therapies are underway to overcome existing therapeutic approaches such as drug treatments and electrical stimulation. Among the widely available sources, dental pulp stem cells from deciduous teeth (DPSC) have gained popularity due to their neural crest origin and inherent propensity toward neuronal lineage...
