Remineralizing efficacy of Calcarea Fluorica tablets on the artificial carious enamel lesions using scanning electron microscope and surface microhardness testing: In vivostudy
Conclusions: (1) Remineralization occurred in both the groups as indicated by SEM and the increase in surface hardness values in both the groups. (2) Remineralization of enamel samples in the control group as indicated by SEM and also by increase in VHN values indicated that the saliva has a tendency of remineralizing the early carious lesions. Conclusions drawn from the study are that the calc-f tablets can be used as safe and cost effective remineralizing agent.

One-step apexification using platelet rich fibrin matrix and mineral trioxide aggregate apical barrier
Anisha Kumar, Amit Yadav, Neeta ShettyIndian Journal of Dental Research 2014 25(6):809-812The absence of a natural apical constriction in a nonvital young permanent tooth makes endodontic treatment a challenge. There is a need to induce or create an apical barrier against, which the obturating material can be condensed. Traditionally, calcium hydroxide is the material of choice to induce apexification. Due to certain drawbacks such as prolonged treatment duration and unpredictable apical barrier formation, it is being replaced by materials, which have a more predictable outcome like mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA).

Treatment of multiple gingival recessions adopting modified tunnel subepithelial connective tissue graft technique
This article highlights the esthetic results obtained by adopting a modification of the tunnel technique using a single vertical incision along with autologous SCTG in the management of multiple adjacent Miller Class-II gingival recessions.

Survival of Intentionally Replanted Teeth and Implant-supported Single Crowns: A Systematic Review
Although nonsurgical initial root canal treatment and retreatment have high success rates, periapical disease can remain. The survival rates of 2 surgical procedures, intentionally replanted (IR) teeth and implant-supported single crowns (ISCs), have yet to be compared. The purpose of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to examine the literature and quantify the survival of IR teeth and compare it with that of ISCs. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

Thio-urethane oligomers improve the properties of light-cured resin cements
Bonded indirect restorations play a major role in contemporary dentistry [1]. Resin cements have become popular clinically because of their ability to bond both to the tooth structure and to the restoration [2]. Examples of their clinical applications include adhesion of ceramic fragments, crowns, bridges, and intra-canal posts. Due to the necessary (and sometimes excessive) taper on tooth preparations, and to constant incidence of tensile, compressive and oblique loads, resin cements must have high mechanical properties, as well as resistance to dissolution and strong bond to structures [2–4].

Tooth root apices
Dental cementum is a thin layer of mineralized tissue that covers the tooth root. In combination with the periodontal ligament, alveolar bone, and gingiva, cementum provides support to the tooth. The internal aspect of the cementum is adjacent to dentin and is with the dental pulp apically. The external aspect interfaces with the periodontal ligament. Cementum thickness varies, being thicker at the apex and thinner at the cementoenamel junction. Cementum is continually formed at varying rates throughout life.
