OBJECTIVE: Formulation of injectable in situ forming implant (ISI) systems of lornoxicam for dental and post operative pain management to decrease dosing frequency and increase patient compliance. METHOD: Polymeric in situ implant solutions were prepared using different concentrations and inherent viscosities of Poly-DL-lactide (PDL) or DL-lactide/glycolide copolymer (PDLG) using 22X4 factorial experimental design. Non polymeric systems were prepared using different concentrations of lipids like cetyl alcohol and stearyl alcohol and also sucrose acetate isobutyrate (SAIB) using 32 factorial experimental design...

This study estimated whether continued programming of a highly specialized four-year dentistry residency training in Saudi Arabia was cost-beneficial. We utilized a purposive sampling to administer a survey to trainees in major cities. Additionally, we used publically available market information about general practitioners. We employed Benefit-Cost Analysis accounting approach as a conceptual framework. Using general practitioners as the base category, we grouped overall social analytical perspectives into resident trainees and rest of society...

Many hospitals are competing for survival in their service areas. Because of intense competition within markets, hospitals are developing strategies to differentiate themselves. One way to do so is to create a physical infrastructure and service environment that generate a positive impact on patient perceptions. The purpose of this study is to review the literature on servicescape (i.e., a total impression of a service encounter developed through the use of human senses) and its effects on service quality and patient outcomes in healthcare settings...

PURPOSE: To compare different dental bonding systems that are currently available on the market. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 100 extracted, intact third molars were coated in resin, cut, and divided into 10 groups of 10 molars each. Molars were bonded to zirconia blocks with a different bonding system per group. Resistance to shear forces was tested using a universal traction machine. Samples were observed under scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to determine the type of fracture...

OBJECTIVES: Phytate is an organic, cyclic polyphosphate analogous to linear condensed polyphosphates used as stain removal agents. This study investigated stain removal efficacy of an experimental sodium phytate-containing dentifrice compared to a reference dentifrice. METHODS: An experimental, moderate abrasivity (relative dentine abrasivity [RDA] ∼130) antisensitivity fluoride dentifrice containing sodium phytate (0.85% w/w as the hexasodium salt) (n = 111) was compared to a reference, marketed, low-abrasivity (RDA ∼ 43), anti-sensitivity fluoride dentifrice (n = 113), both containing 1150 ppm fluoride as sodium fluoride...

BACKGROUND: Titanium tetrafluoride (TiF4 ) has regained interest due to new formulations that have been shown to be more effective against tooth demineralization than sodium fluoride (NaF) formulations in vitro and in situ. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of two types of varnishes (4% TiF4 and a commercial 5% NaF) on the prevention of carious lesions and the treatment of noncavitated enamel carious lesions in the permanent teeth of children living in a fluoridated area...

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)...

AIM: The purpose of this review is to elucidate the steps involved in the FDA's approval of new dermatology drugs. METHODS: To help illustrate the process of drug approval, we use examples from the recent approval of dupilumab (REGN668; Regeneron Pharmaceuticals). RESULTS: 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)...

Background: Smoking is the single most important public health challenge facing the National Health Service. The detrimental effects on the general health of tobacco smoking are well documented. Smoking is a primary risk factor for oral cancer and many oral diseases. Dental professional scan plays an important role in preventing adverse health effects by promoting smoking cessation. Objective: To assess the knowledge, attitude, and practice among clinical dental students in giving smoking cessation advice and to explore the barriers to this activity...

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...
