STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM: Individuals with oral clefts exhibit considerably more dental anomalies than individuals without clefts. These problems could initially be among the symptoms of their disease and/or they may be the side effect of their treatments. Pushback palatoplasty could cause some interference during the development of teeth and result in tooth defects. PURPOSE: The study was performed to assess the prevalence and characteristics of developmental dental anomalies in orofacial cleft patients who attended Shiraz Orthodontics Research Center-Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic...

By increasing the number of replaced tooth with dental implants, the number of poorly positioned implants is also increased. In this article we present our experience about a 48-year-old female who was referred to our department for resolving prosthetic problem regarding two malpositioned implants inserted in the upper jaw. The interocclusal space was insufficient and the two adjacent implants had excessive buccal angulation. To overcome these problems, segmental osteotomy of the alveolar bone containing two implants has been done...

Permanent maxillary first molar morphology has been studied widely. Usually, it has three roots with three canals and the frequent deviation being incidence of a second mesiobuccal canal, thus showing a multifaceted root canal anatomy. Other variations comprise four and five roots and abnormal root canal morphology within individual roots. Many case reports with five and six root canals or a C-shaped canal configuration have been reported in the past. This varying number of root canals poses a challenge for endodontist in detecting and treating by root canal treatment...

T Renton, J Durham, C M Hill
The maxillary sinus is the largest of the four paranasal sinuses and, being anatomically adjacent to the dentate region of the maxilla, is commonly a source of problems - not simply in terms of conditions affecting the sinus but also in establishing an accurate diagnosis. As anyone who has suffered both sinusitis and a dental abscess in the posterior maxilla will tell you, the symptoms are almost indistinguishable. For this reason, a sound understanding of the maxillary sinus is an essential requisite for all dentists...

Yun-Bo Shi, Deling Yin
It is well known that too much sugar uptake causes many health problems, including diabetes and obesity (Lustig et al. in Nature 482:27-29, 2012). However, a team of researchers led by Dr. Wanjun Chen of the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), National Institutes of Health (NIH), USA, have recently shown that d-mannose, a naturally occurring C-2 epimer of glucose is likely beneficial to human health. Their studies have revealed that supraphysiological levels of d-mannose that are safely achievable via drinking-water supplementation can be preventive and therapeutic to experimental autoimmune diabetes and asthmatic lung inflammation (Zhang et al...

Early childhood caries (ECC) is a significant global health problem affecting millions of preschool children worldwide. In general, preschool children from families with 20% of the lowest family incomes suffered about 80% of the ECC. Most, if not all, surveys indicated that the great majority of ECC was left untreated. Untreated caries progresses into the dental pulp, causing pain and infection. It can spread systemically, affecting a child's growth, development and general health. Fundamental caries management is based on the conventional restorative approach...

OBJECTIVES: Long-term retention of teeth and especially molars in function is the ultimate goal of periodontal therapy. Root-resective therapy is a treatment option for molars with advanced furcation involvement, which has been questioned because of the heterogenous success rates published in literature. This study aimed to evaluate long-term results of root-resective treatment over a period of up to 30 years. METHODS: In this retrospective cohort, 90 root-resected molars in 69 patients were examined for 4-30 years (14...

INTRODUCTION: The specialty of periodontology has changed dramatically in recent years. With the long-standing goal of retaining teeth in a functional and esthetical state, the periodontology has developed a high level of expertise in the regeneration of bone and connective tissues that support the teeth. However, periodontists have also joined maxillofacial surgeons as the primary providers of implant surgery. METHODS: The tremendous innovations of periodontists induced also by the marketplace resulted in predictable periodontal treatment outcomes for most patients by the implants led to a dramatically different marketplace in which many patients with periodontitis can be treated by the implants rather than the traditional periodontal treatment...

An external dental fistula is a skin manifestation caused by an underlying dental problem. We report a rare case of external dental fistula associated with a fixed cantilever denture. A 77-year-old Japanese woman presented with an enlarging reddish granulomatous lesion on her right cheek that was diagnosed as an external dental fistula. A fixed cantilever denture had initially been attached to her upper jaw with her seven bona fide teeth. However, six teeth were completely lost and the denture was attached to only one tooth, which showed apical periodontitis...

Bone and dental diseases are serious public health problems. Most current clinical treatments for these diseases can produce side effects. Regeneration is a promising therapy for bone and dental diseases, yielding natural tissue recovery with few side effects. Because soft tissues inside the bone and dentin are densely populated with nerves and vessels, the study of bone and dentin regeneration should also consider the co-regeneration of nerves and vessels. In this study, a network-based method to identify co-regeneration genes for bone, dentin, nerve and vessel was constructed based on an extensive network of protein-protein interactions...

OBJECTIVE: To give a current review of silane adhesion chemistry, applications of silane coupling agents and related surface pretreatment methods in contemporary dentistry. METHODS: Silane coupling agents are adhesion promoters to chemically unify dissimilar materials used in dentistry. Silanes are very effective in adhesion promotion between resin composites and silica-based or silica-coated indirect restorative materials. It is generally accepted that for non-silica-based restorations, surface pretreatment is a mandatory preliminary step to increase the silica content and then, with help of silane, improve resin bonding...
