Insulin Modulates Cytokines Expression in Human Periodontal Ligament Cells
Both diabetes mellitus and periodontal disease (PD) are chronic illnesses. There have been increased interests in a possible link between diabetes and PD.1 PD has recently been recognized as the ‘sixth’ major complication of diabetes. Epidemiologic studies have confirmed a high prevalence of PD with diabetes. Clinical evidence has also shown a positive correlation between diabetes and PD. The majority of clinical and epidemiological evidence demonstrated that individuals with diabetes (type I and type II) tend to have a higher prevalence of PD as well as more severe and more rapidly progressing forms of PD than nondiab...

The dentist as doctor: A rallying call for the future
When the future status of dentistry is considered, scholarship in the profession plays a key role. It is by scholarship that dentistry distinguishes itself as a learned and esteemed profession, and this position paper aims to explore and promote this vital core value. As Fellows of the American Dental Education Association’s selective Leadership Institute, the authors spent over a year critically examining the role of scholarship in dentistry, which was identified as a critical issue for the profession.

Functional genioplasty in growing patients.
Conclusion: The outcomes of forward-upward genioplasty include increased symphysis thickness, bone apposition above B point, and remodeling at the inferior border. When indications for this type of genioplasty are recognized, early surgical correction (before age 15) produces a better outcome in terms of bone remodeling.

Film thickness of crown disclosing material and its relevance to cementation
Regardless of the type of indirect restoration being fabricated, optimizing fit at cementation is a challenge. Several disclosing agents have been recommended to identify intaglio surface contacts that may result in incomplete seating and poorly adapted margins. The International Organization for Standardization has established a standard of 25 μm for the maximum film thickness for water-based cements. To accurately predict the clinical behavior of a luting cement, the disclosing agents themselves should have a film thickness no greater than 25 μm. (Source: Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry)

The detection of periapical pathoses in root filled teeth using single, parallax and cone beam computed tomography – a clinical study
ConclusionsCBCT detects significantly more periapical lesions and root canals than both single and parallax periapical radiographs. There was no significant difference between CBCT and the clinical microscope in the identification of root canals. Whilst two parallax radiographs detect significantly more root canals than a single radiograph, they do not increase detection of periapical lesions when compared to a single periapical radiograph.This article is protected by copyright.

Temporospatial localisation of dentine matrix protein 1 following direct pulp capping with calcium hydroxide in rat molars
ConclusionsThe deposition of DMP1 at ‐exposed pulp sites preceded the appearance of nestin‐immunoreactive cells, active cell proliferation, and new matrix formation after pulp capping with calcium hydroxide in rat molars, suggesting that DMP1 acts as a trigger of pulp repair. The colocalisation of DMP1 and osteopontin suggests that these two proteins play complementary roles.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Long-term surgical versus functional Class II correction.
Abstract Abstract The purpose of this twin case comparison was to assess the short- and long-term effects of nonsurgical treatment vs orthognathic surgical treatment for Class II correction. Two identical twins (age 13 years 3 months) were treated for Class II correction where one patient was treated nonsurgically using a fixed functional appliance, while the other was treated using orthognathic mandibular advancement surgery. The patients were recalled and evaluated 5 years in retention. Comparing changes in the short and long term, surgical treatment led to superior skeletal results compared to the nonsurgical...

The anatomical relationship between the roots of mandibular second molars and the inferior alveolar nerve
ConclusionsIn over 50% of the cases evaluated there was an intimate relationship between the roots of mandibular second molars and the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN). Therefore, root canal treatment of mandibular second molars may pose a more significant potential risk of IAN injury; necessary precautions should be exercised and the prudent use of CBCT should be considered if an intimate relationship is suspected.This article is protected by copyright.

Facial morphometrics of children with NON-syndromic orofacial clefts in Tanzania
Conclusion: The mean facial shape in African children with non-syndromic CL/P differs significantly from children without orofacial clefts. The main differences involve interorbital width, facial width and midface prognathism. The axes of facial shape differences we observed are similar to the patterns seen in Caucasian populations, despite apparent differences in cleft prevalence and cleft type distribution. Similar facial morphology in individuals with CL/P in African and Caucasian populations suggests a similar aetiology. (Source: BMC Oral Health - Latest articles)

The influence of asthma on face shape: a three-dimensional study
Respiratory activity may have an influence on craniofacial development and interact with genetic and environmental factors. It has been suggested that certain medical conditions such as asthma have an influence on face shape. The aim of the study is to investigate whether facial shape is different in individuals diagnosed as having asthma compared with controls. Study design included observational longitudinal cohort study. Asthma was defined as reported wheezing diagnosed at age 7 years and 6 months. The cohort was followed to 15 years of age as part of the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children. A total of 418 a...

Comparison of deformation and torque expression of the orthos and orthos Ti bracket systems
This study investigates the effect of bracket material on torque expression. Torque exerted by a rotating archwire on each bracket will be measured as well as the relative deformation of each bracket slot. A total of 60 tests were performed where archwires were rotated within a bracket slot to produce torque within a bracket. Thirty Ormco Orthos Ti and 30 Orthos SS were compared to investigate the effect of torque on bracket material. Each bracket was mounted on a six-axis load cell that measured forces and moments in all directions. The archwire was rotated from an initial angle of 0 degree in 3 degrees increments to maxi...

Comparison of tooth displacement between buccal mini-implants and palatal plate anchorage for molar distalization: a finite element study
The purposes of this study were to mechanically evaluate distalization modalities through the application of skeletal anchorage using finite element analysis. Base models were constructed from commercial teeth models. A finite element model was created and three treatment modalities were modified to make 10 models. Modalities 1 and 2 placed mini-implants in the buccal side, and modality 3 placed a plate on the palatal side. Distalization with the palatal plate in modality 3 showed bodily molar movement and insignificant displacement of the incisors. Placing mini-implants on the buccal side in modalities 1 and 2 caused the ...

Is maxillary dental arch constriction common in Japanese male adult patients with obstructive sleep apnoea?
CONCLUSIONS We conclude that dental arch constriction in the maxilla could be associated with the development of OSA but is not a typical feature of our sample of Japanese OSA patients. Moreover, the factor that aggravates OSA is not maxillary skeletal constriction but rather maxillary dental arch constriction related to antero-posterior skeletal discrepancy.
