OBJECTIVES: The aim of this investigation was to assess the erosion protection ability of a novel stabilized stannous fluoride (SnF2) dentifrice and a control sodium fluoride dentifrice (NaF) using a well-credentialed human in situ model. METHODS: A novel smooth texture 0.454% stabilized SnF2 dentifrice (Crest® Pro-Health™ smooth formula) and a 0.23% NaF marketed control dentifrice with 5% potassium nitrate (Sensodyne® Pronamel®) were compared in a 10-day, single center, randomized, controlled, double-blind, two-treatment, three-period crossover in situ clinical trial...

INTRODUCTION: The success of endodontic regeneration lies in the appropriate combination of stem cells and bioactive materials. Several novel dental materials are available on the market in this regard. Hence, the current study aimed to evaluate the proliferation, differentiation, and osteogenic potential of human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hBMSCs) onto biomaterials like ProRoot MTA (MTA; Dentsply Tulsa Dental, Tulsa, OK), Biodentine (BD; Septodont, Saint Maur de Fosses, France), and EndoSequence Root Repair Material (ERRM; Brasseler USA, Savannah, GA)...

The process by which dermatology drugs are approved in the United States is not well understood by many clinicians. In general, new dermatology drugs must undergo pre-clinical studies on non-human subjects and three phases of clinical trials in humans before undergoing review by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This review process involves an interdisciplinary team of scientists that determines if the drug should be brought to market based on its efficacy, risk-to-benefit ratio, and ability to be labeled...

INTRODUCTION: Composite materials used in dentistry indicate adverse biological effects in laboratory conditions. One reason for this activity is incomplete conversion of their polymer matrix, favoring chemical instability and release of biologically harmful components to the external environment. AIM: The aim of the study was to assess the degree of conversion of restorative materials commonly available on the European market and to examine the cytotoxic effects of their eluates in vitro...

The wide use of chairside CAD/CAM restorations has increased the diversity of the restorative material. For the practitioner, the selection of the appropriate material is difficult amongst the variety offered by the market. Information on the characteristics of the products can be difficult to assess due to the lack of up-to-date classification and the lack of reliability of manufacturer's advertising. The purpose of this article is to structure the data on restorative materials provided by various sources in order for the practitioner to choose the product most suited to the clinical situation...

Although studies have examined leaching of bisphenol A (BPA) from dental sealants into saliva, occurrence of BPA, bisphenol A diglycidyl ether (BADGE), and their derivatives in dental sealants themselves has not been investigated. In this study, concentrations of eight bisphenol analogues (BPs), BADGE and its derivatives (BADGEs), including BADGE‧H2O, BADGE‧HCl, BADGE‧2H2O, BADGE‧2HCl, and BADGE‧H2O‧HCl, were determined in 70 dental sealants collected from the U.S. market. Of the 70 dental sealants analyzed, 65 contained at least one of the target chemicals measured...

Background/Objective: The clinical conditions that lead to an alteration of the enamel structure are numerous. The diet high in sugars and acidifying substances, psychological stress that triggers parafunctional behaviors, the reduced intake of fiber-rich foods or alkalizing substances, together with other factors, contribute to demineralization of the tooth enamel. Dental mineralizing products on the current market are distinguished according to the dosage form, the active ingredient, the release technology, clinical indications and patient choice...

The current study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of a developed sodium alginate and polyvinylpyrrolidone K-25 (PVP K-25) polymeric wafer for the co-delivery of ketorolac and lidocaine to soft tissues for healing and pain control following gingivectomy. Nine ketorolac/lidocaine lyophilized wafers were formulated and assessed for their hydration capacity, mucoadhesion ability and in vitro release profile to select the optimum system for further clinical investigation. Wafer F6 containing 2:1 sodium alginate to PVP K-25 and 10% glycerol showed optimum properties and was selected for the clinical study...

BACKGROUND: This article presents evidence-based clinical recommendations for the use of pit-and-fissure sealants on the occlusal surfaces of primary and permanent molars in children and adolescents. A guideline panel convened by the American Dental Association (ADA) Council on Scientific Affairs and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry conducted a systematic review and formulated recommendations to address clinical questions in relation to the efficacy, retention, and potential side effects of sealants to prevent dental caries; their efficacy compared with fluoride varnishes; and a head-to-head comparison of the different types of sealant material used to prevent caries on pits-and-fissures of occlusal surfaces...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the anti-plaque efficacy (Study 1) and the anti-gingivitis efficacy (Study 2) of a manual toothbrush with tapered bristles compared to marketed control manual toothbrushes. METHODS: Studies 1 and 2 were independent, randomized and controlled, single-center, examiner-blind clinical trials in generally healthy adults. Study 1 included a 2-day acclimation period, followed by a 5-day twice daily toothbrushing test phase with the assigned brush. Baseline and Day 5 pre- and post-brushing plaque levels were assessed via Turesky Modified Quigley-Hein Plaque Index (TMQHPI)...
