Expression of Ki-67, Oct-4, γ-tubulin and α-tubulin in human tooth development
In vertebrate embryos, tooth development is a consequence of mutually inductive interactions between the oral epithelium and underlying neural crest-derived mesenchyme [1], which are proceeded in a specific spacio-temporal molecularly regulated pattern [2], leading to bud, cap and bell tooth developmental stages. Human tooth development begins at the end of the fifth developmental week by the appearance of future dental arches [3–6]. Certain regions of oral epithelium bud into the underlying mesenchyme [6–8], which condenses around these budings to form mesenchymal parts of the tooth germs [4,9].

Variation in mouthguard thickness due to different heating conditions during fabrication
Abstract The purpose of this study was to determine changes in the thickness of mouthguard sheets under different heating conditions during fabrication. Mouthguards were fabricated with polyolefin–polystyrene co‐polymer (OS) and olefin co‐polymer (OL) sheets (4.0‐mm thick) utilizing a vacuum‐forming machine under the following three conditions: (A) the sheet was moulded when it sagged 15 mm below the sheet frame (i.e. the normally used position); (B) the sheet frame was lowered to and heated at 30 mm below the top of the post and moulded when it sagged by 15 mm; and (C) the sheet frame was lowered to and heate...

Limitations of a method used for adolescent assessment of smile aesthetics.
Abstract Summary AIMS : To establish whether adolescent orthodontic patients with hypodontia have a preference between the aesthetic outcomes of two treatment strategies for lateral incisor agenesis. MATERIALS/METHODS: Standardized photographs of pre-orthodontic patients with missing lateral incisors were manipulated to produce images that represented space opening and tooth replacement in the lateral incisor space and space closure with canine substitution into the lateral incisor space. Adolescent orthodontic patients with hypodontia were recruited to assess the aesthetics of the images. A control group of su...

The dilemma of reporting suspicions of child maltreatment in pediatric dentistry
This study examined the factors that lead specialists in pediatric dentistry to suspect child abuse or neglect and the considerations that influence the decision to report these suspicions to social services. Focus group discussions were used to identify new aspects of child maltreatment suspicion and reporting. Such discussions illuminate the diversity of informants' experiences, opinions, and reflections. Focus groups included 19 specialists and postgraduate students in pediatric dentistry. We conducted video‐recorded focus group discussions at the informants' dental clinics. All sessions lasted approximately 1.5 h. W...

Expression of Oct‐4, SOX‐2, and MYC in dental papilla cells and dental follicle cells during in‐vivo tooth development and in‐vitro co‐culture
In this study, the distribution of OSM in rat tooth germ was investigated by immunohistochemical staining. An in‐vitro co‐culture system of DPCs and DFCs was established. Cell proliferation, cell apoptosis, cell cycle stages, and expression of OSM were investigated by Cell Counting Kit 8 (CCK8) analysis, flow cytometry, real‐time PCR, and immunohistochemical staining. We found that Oct‐4 and SOX‐2 were strongly expressed in tooth germ on days 7 and 9 after birth, whereas MYC was expressed only on day 9. Cell proliferation and apoptosis were inhibited, the cell cycle was arrested in the G0/G1 phase, and the propid...

Job satisfaction and perceived future roles of Malaysian dental therapists: findings from a national survey
ConclusionMajority expressed high career satisfaction with most aspects of their employment but expressed low satisfaction in remuneration, lack of career advancement opportunities and administrative tasks. We conclude that most Malaysian dental therapists have positive perceptions of their current roles but do not favour wider expansion of their roles. These findings imply that there was a need to develop a more attractive career pathway for therapists to ensure sustainability of effective primary oral healthcare delivery system for Malaysia's children.

Exploration of the relationship between parent/guardian sociodemographics, intention, and knowledge and the oral health status of their children/wards enrolled in a Central Florida Head Start Program
ConclusionResearchers have called for greater attention to the impact of parental influences in the aetiology of ECC. Results from this study were consistent with current studies where parent/guardian race/ethnicity and educational level served as predictors of oral health status of children. In this study population, parent/guardian intention and knowledge were not shown to significantly impact the oral health status of their child/ward. (Source: International Journal of Dental Hygiene)

Comparison of the Accuracy of 3-dimensional Cone-Beam Computed Tomography and Micro–Computed Tomography Reconstructions by Using Different Voxel Sizes
Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) data are, in principle, metrically exact. However, clinicians need to consider the precision of measurements of dental morphology as well as other hard tissue structures. CBCT spatial resolution, and thus image reconstruction quality, is restricted by the acquisition voxel size. The aim of this study was to assess geometric discrepancies among 3-dimensional CBCT reconstructions relative to the micro-CT reference. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)
