Increased expression of TRPV1 in the trigeminal ganglion is involved in orofacial pain during experimental tooth movement in rats
To investigate whether transient receptor potential vanilloid type 1 (TRPV1) is involved in pain induced by experimental tooth movement, experiments were performed in male Sprague‐Dawley rats weighing 200–250 g. Directed face‐grooming behavior was used to evaluate nocifensive behavior in rats during experimental tooth movement. The distribution of TRPV1 in the trigeminal ganglion (TG) was evaluated by immunohistochemistry, and its expression was detected by western blotting at several time points following the application of various magnitudes of force during tooth movement. Immunohistochemical analysis revealed tha...

The dentist as doctor: A rallying call for the future
Conclusions Because scholarship defines a profession, dentists as doctors and the leaders in oral health should demonstrate the highest scholarship; absence of scholarship risks perception of dentistry as a trade. All dentists can consistently manifest scholarship by integrating basic science, as well as by incorporating the dental evidence-base, into daily practice.

Comparison of Quick-Set and Mineral Trioxide Aggregate Root-end Fillings for the Regeneration of Apical Tissues in Dogs
Quick-Set (Avalon Biomed Inc, Bradenton, FL) is a calcium aluminosilicate cement that is a potential alternative to mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) with greater acid resistance and faster setting. The purpose of this study was to compare the regeneration of apical tissues after root-end surgery when the apical tissues were exposed to Quick-Set or White ProRoot MTA (Dentsply Tulsa Dental Specialties, Tulsa, OK) by root-end resection.

Esthetic, occlusal, and periodontal rehabilitation of anterior teeth with minimum thickness porcelain laminate veneers
Publication date: December 2014 Source:The Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry, Volume 112, Issue 6 Author(s): Leonardo Fernandes da Cunha , Lorena Oliveira Pedroche , Carla Castiglia Gonzaga , Adilson Yoshio Furuse Ceramic veneers of minimum thickness provide satisfactory esthetic outcomes while preserving the dental structure. Dental ceramics can both improve the esthetic appearance and reestablish the strength and function of teeth. In worn anterior teeth, functional surfaces, for example, anterior and lateral guidance, can be restored effectively. The characteristics of dental ceramics, such as color stability and mechan...

Computed tomography-based, template-guided implant placement and immediate loading: An 8-year clinical report
This report presents an 8-year follow-up of a patient treated with computer-assisted implant planning, template-guided implant placement, and immediate loading. A preoperative diagnostic evaluation resulted in a more predictable implant placement with respect to anatomic structures and the planned prosthesis. Implants were placed in both the maxilla and the mandible, and immediate loading in both arches was provided. (Source: The Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry)

Effect of hydrothermal degradation on three types of zirconias for dental application
Conclusion Hydrothermal aging of zirconia caused a statistically significant decrease in flexural strength of thin bars of zirconia, which was the result of the transformation from tetragonal to monoclinic crystal structure. ZirTough exhibited the least decrease in strength and smallest amount of monoclinic phase after aging. (Source: The Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry)

Influence of zirconia surface treatment on veneering porcelain shear bond strength after cyclic loading
Conclusions Within the limitations of this study, the shear bond strength between yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia polycrystal and veneering porcelain was not significantly affected by surface treatment.
