Esthetic anterior composite resin restorations using a single shade: Step-by-step technique
Children and young adults often present to a dental practice after accidents that affect their anterior teeth. In many situations, only 1 tooth is affected by the trauma, and choosing the right treatment option can be complex. Esthetic restoration of the maxillary anterior dentition can be accomplished by using direct or indirect techniques. Direct resin composite restoration can be characterized as a life-like definitive restoration and is a predictable, conservative, and reliable chairside procedure.

Influence of surface sealant agents on the surface roughness and color stability of artificial teeth
Conclusions Palaseal and Optiglaze sealant agents provided smoother and more color-stable denture tooth surfaces than the conventional polishing technique. The use of the Biscover agent with SR Vivodent and Phonares II teeth increased the Ra values. The color of conventionally polished SR Vivodent and Phonares II teeth changed more with thermal cycling.

When is a child too sick for daycare? Study explores parents’ decision-making
It’s a common dilemma faced by many working parents: your child has a cough or a cold, do you send them to nursery? Researchers from the University of Bristol have, for the first time, investigated the process of decision-making that parents go through when faced with this situation.

An end to cancer pain?
(University of Toronto - Faculty of Dentistry) A new study led by University of Toronto researcher Dr. David Lam has discovered the trigger behind the most severe forms of cancer pain. Released in top journal Pain this month, the study points to TMPRSS2 as the culprit: a gene that is also responsible for some of the most aggressive forms of androgen-fueled cancers.

Capacity of dental equipment to interfere with cardiac implantable electrical devices
The objective of this study was to examine in vitro the capacity of dental equipment to provoke electromagnetic interference in pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators. Six electronic dental instruments were tested on three implantable cardioverter defibrillators and three pacemakers from different manufacturers. A simulator model, submerged in physiological saline, with elements that reproduced life‐size anatomic structures was used. The instruments were analyzed at differing distances and for different time periods of application. The dental instruments studied displayed significant differences in their...

The iontophoresis of lignocaine with epinephrine into carious dentine for pain control during cavity preparation in human molars
It has been shown recently that dentine can be anaesthetised rapidly by the topical application of a solution containing 20% w/v lignocaine HCl and 0.1% w/v epinephrine HCl if an iontophoretic, anodal current of 120μA is passed for 90 s between the solution and the dentine.1 These experiments were carried out on freshly exposed, healthy dentine; if the technique could be used for cavity preparation in carious teeth, it would avoid the need for the administration of local anaesthetics by injection, which causes patients pain and anxiety.

neutralisation of the antibacterial effect of 0.2% chlorhexidine on salivary microbiota: quantification of substantivity

Protein Adseverin identified as key factor driving bone loss in osteoinflammatory disease
(University of Toronto - Faculty of Dentistry) More common than arthritis, gum disease (periodontitis), an osteoimmune disease, affects millions of North Americans each year, and leads to bone loss. Researchers at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Dentistry have identified Adseverin, a protein in the body, as the key driver behind the bone loss associated with the world's most common inflammatory disease. The finding paves the way for new preventive treatment models for this disease and may lead to new understandings of other osteoimmune diseases such as arthritis and osteoporosis.

Inhibition of enamel demineralization and bond‐strength properties of bioactive glass containing 4‐META/MMA‐TBB‐based resin adhesive
We investigated the enamel demineralization‐prevention ability and shear bond strength (SBS) properties of 4‐methacryloxyethyl trimellitic anhydride/methyl methacrylate‐tri‐n‐butyl borane (4‐META/MMA‐TBB)‐based resin containing various amounts (0–50%) of bioactive glass (BG). Disk‐shaped specimens were immersed in distilled water and ions released were analysed by inductively coupled plasma atomic‐emission spectroscopy. Samples were also immersed in lactic acid solution (pH 4.6) to estimate acid‐neutralizing ability. Brackets were bonded to human premolars with BG‐containing resins and the bonded ...

Tissue engineered periodontal products
Attainment of periodontal regeneration is a significant clinical goal in the management of advanced periodontal defects arising from periodontitis. Over the past 30 years numerous techniques and materials have been introduced and evaluated clinically and have included guided tissue regeneration, bone grafting materials, growth and other biological factors and gene therapy. With the exception of gene therapy, all have undergone evaluation in humans. All of the products have shown efficacy in promoting periodontal regeneration in animal models but the results in humans remain variable and equivocal concerning attaining comp...

Insulin-like growth factor-II regulates bone sialoprotein gene transcription
In this study, we have investigated the regulation of BSP transcription by IGF-II in rat osteoblast-like ROS17/2.8 cells. IGF-II (50 ng/ml) increased BSP mRNA and protein levels after 6-h stimulation, and enhanced luciferase activities of the constructs pLUC3 (−116 to +60), pLUC4 (−425 to +60), pLUC5 (−801 to +60) and pLUC6 (−938 to +60). Effects of IGF-II were inhibited by tyrosine kinase, extracellular signal-regulated kinase1/2 and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase inhibitors, and abrogated by 2-bp mutations in cAMP response element (CRE), FGF2 response element (FRE) and homeodomain protein-binding site (HOX).
