BACKGROUND: The number of internal diseases, disorders and syndromes (IMDDSs) encountered in dental practice is increasing. Dentists report to feel ill prepared by their undergraduate dental training for the management of IMDDSs. To increase the effectiveness of internal medicine training at dental school it might be necessary to focus on IMDDs encountered by dental students. The aim of our study was to identify IMDDSs dental students come across while treating dental patients during the clinical years of their undergraduate training...

Periodontal health is defined by absence of clinically detectable inflammation. There is a biological level of immune surveillance that is consistent with clinical gingival health and homeostasis. Clinical gingival health may be found in a periodontium that is intact, i.e. without clinical attachment loss or bone loss, and on a reduced periodontium in either a non-periodontitis patient (e.g. in patients with some form of gingival recession or following crown lengthening surgery) or in a patient with a history of periodontitis who is currently periodontally stable...

Robert J A M de Kanter, Pasquale G F C M Battistuzzi, Gert-Jan Truin
By analogy with the journal's title Pain Research and Management, this review describes TMD Research and Management. More specific are the (1) research aspects of "occlusion," still one of the most controversial topics in TMD, and (2) as much as possible evidence-based management aspects of "TMD" for the dental practitioner. Research . The disorders temporomandibular dysfunction and the synonymous craniomandibular dysfunction are still being discussed intensely in the literature. Traditionally, attention is mostly devoted to occlusion and its relationship with these disorders...

Sophie Doméjean, Brigitte Grosgogeat
This chapter aims to discuss the way dental practitioners manage deep carious lesions (DCL) in routine practice and the barriers and incentives/facilitators to changes in accepted practice. In concert with the philosophy of minimal intervention dentistry, the concept of quaternary prevention (actions taken to prevent overtreatment and reduce harm to the patient) emerges in dentistry. This can be applied to carious tissue removal (CTR) in DCL given the risks associated with this procedure (high risk of pulp exposure, pulpal complications, tooth substance loss, and unsuccessful invasive, expensive outcomes)...

Understanding the carious process as a biofilm disease rather than an infectious disease has changed lesion management focus towards less invasive options. This has led to new and ongoing changes in recommendations for practitioners. However, the lack of clarity over what to do, and when, is complicated by different teaching, research, and policy documents containing different terms and definitions for carious lesions and management strategies. Lack of clear messages and communication over recommendations hampers moving evidence into practice...

Dental caries, the most common chronic disease in the world, affects over 3 billion people globally. Its management comprises a large proportion of dental care providers' clinical responsibility, yet despite the extensive evidence base for the management of cavitated carious lesions, gaps in the evidence persist. This promotes uncertainty and debate among providers. This chapter reiterates the 3 key components of evidence-based practice (EBP): clinical expertise, an awareness and appreciation of patient values, and use of best available evidence...

BACKGROUND: Currently, many risk assessment tools are available for clinicians to assess a patient's periodontal disease risk. Numerous studies demonstrate the potential of these tools to promote preventive management and reduce morbidity due to periodontal disease. Despite these promising results, solo and small group dental practices, where most people receive care, have not adopted risk assessment tools widely, primarily due to lack of studies in these settings. The objective of this study was to explore the knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs of dental providers in these settings toward risk-based care through focus groups...

REVIEW
Zavattini Angelo, Charalambous Polyvios
Managing pain and anxiety in patients has always been an essential part of dentistry. To prevent pain, dentists administer local anaesthesia (LA) via a needle injection. Unfortunately, anxiety and fear that arise prior to and/or during injection remains a barrier for many children and adults from receiving dental treatment. There is a constant search for techniques to alleviate the invasive and painful nature of the needle injection. In recent years, researchers have developed alternative methods which enable dental anaesthesia to be less invasive and more patient-friendly...
