As the thick biofilm in the presence of fermentable carbohydrates is the main etiological factor of dental caries, the frequent and systematic removal of this colony by means of an effective biofilm control should result in the prevention of caries lesions or in the arrest of the local carious process. However, the role of biofilm control in the management of dental caries has been questioned. This chapter will discuss the biofilm control and oral hygiene practices on root surfaces. Laboratory and clinical studies describing the effect of biofilm control and oral hygiene practices on the arrestment of root carious lesions are described...

Root surfaces, which with increasing age become exposed to dental biofilms, will react to the intermittent pH fluctuations at the interface between the biofilm and the cementum/dentin surface. If dental biofilm is left undisturbed in stagnation sites in the dentition, the underlying mineral surfaces may gradually develop dental caries characterized by a subsurface loss of mineral. In root surfaces, the demineralization is accompanied by microbial invasion of the cementum and dentin resulting in a pulpo-dentinal defense reaction...

BACKGROUND: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a blood-derived preparation whose use has grown exponentially in orthopaedic practice. However, there remains an unclear understanding of the biological properties and effects of PRP on musculoskeletal healing. Heterogeneous processing methods, unstandardized nomenclature, and ambiguous classifications make comparison among studies challenging. A comprehensive assessment of orthopaedic clinical PRP trials is key to unraveling the biological complexity of PRP, while improving standardized communication...

Research indicates that while most nondental medical providers believe pediatric oral assessments are important, most lack education and training. This study investigated a metropolitan area in Southern California medical providers’ knowledge, attitudes and practices on oral health assessments. Results indicate a high incidence of incorrect dental knowledge. Common barriers were lack of knowledge and time. Early intervention and timely dental referrals among nondental medical providers can play a significant role in promoting oral health...

Oral health is a key concern for student athletes. The dentist is the primary oral health care provider. Athletic trainers (ATs) are health professionals who have a primary care role for the student athlete. They are often the first to respond when dental trauma occurs in athletics. This paper informs dentists and ATs about each other and includes best practice in the care of athletes, which can be improved through interprofessional collaboration between dentists and ATs.

BACKGROUND: Clinical failure of dental ceramics is usually reported as partial fracture of the restoration (chipping) or as catastrophic fracture of the whole structure. In contrast to metals, ceramics are linear-elastic, brittle materials exhibiting extremely low damage tolerance to failure. Well documented clinical and lab reports have shown this fracture event often occurs at loads far below their fracture strength due to intrinsic fatigue degradation via slow crack growth or cyclic fatigue mechanisms...
