General anaesthesia for dentistry
Publication date: August 2014 Source:Anaesthesia & Intensive Care Medicine, Volume 15, Issue 8 Author(s): Susan Hutchinson Dental anaesthesia developed down a different pathway from the rest of anaesthesia. Techniques such as nasal mask anaesthesia in the sitting position were specific to dental surgery, which took place largely outside hospital in dental clinics. Now dental anaesthesia is confined to locations within the aegis of a hospital and anaesthetic techniques are similar to those in other surgical specialities. Dental surgery consists of extractions and conservation. Short procedures for the extraction o...

Increased infection rates of sinus floor elevations after the use of a bone filter
Conclusions To reduce the amount of bacteria, full-mouth disinfection with chemical agents and a strict aspiration protocol should be used when a bone filter is applied. Antibiotic prophylaxis should be prescribed to reduce the risk of postoperative infections further. Clinical relevance In use of a bone filter, there is the possibility of higher infection rates of sinus floor augmentations. (Source: Clinical Oral Investigations)

Treating Dehiscence During Implant Placement and Loading on Angled Abutment in Maxillary Lateral Incisor Region: A Case Report
Abstract The primary factor causing recession is the morphology and anatomy of the dentition. The facial bony plate overlying the root is usually very thin. The complete absence of bone over the facial root surface is referred to as dehiscence. Such buccal bone defects in case of implant dentistry threaten the survival of dental implant. Many surgical techniques are introduced to enhance alveolar bone volume for placing the dental implants. Guided bone regeneration (GBR) is one such established surgical technique for correcting buccal dehiscence defects, along with the use of various barrier membranes for the same...

Antibiotic resistance continues to rise
"Antibiotic resistance continues to rise," BBC News reports as, despite warnings, the number of antibiotic prescriptions in the UK continues to soar, as do new cases of resistant bacteria. Other news reports take different slants on the story, with The Daily Telegraph blaming the rise on hospitals and out of hours GPs. The news follows the publication of a new report by Public Health England on the English surveillance programme for antimicrobial utilisation and resistance (ESPAUR), which reports the change in antibiotic prescribing and resistance over recent years. The report highlights a number of key f...

A dual role for β1 integrin in an in vitro Streptococcus mitis/human gingival fibroblasts co‐culture model in response to TEGDMA
Conclusionsβ1 integrin triggered the signalling pathway, transduced by p‐PKCα and involving ERK 1 and 2 and MMPs. This pathway resulted in an unbalanced equilibrium in tissue remodelling process, along with inflammatory response when HGFs are exposed to bacteria or biomaterial alone. On the contrary, the TEGDMA/S. mitis combination restored the balance between extracellular matrix deposition and degradation and prevented an inflammatory response.

Use of second-generation platelet concentrate (platelet-rich fibrin) and hydroxyapatite in the management of large periapical inflammatory lesion: A computed tomography scan analysis
We present here a case report wherein, combination of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and the hydroxyapatite graft was used to achieve faster healing of the large periapical lesion. Healing was observed within 8 months, which were confirmed by computed tomography, following improved bone density. PRF has many advantages over platelet-rich plasma. It provides a physiologic architecture that is very favorable to the healing process, which is obtained due to the slow polymerization process.

The association between dental wear and reduced vertical dimension of the face: a morphologic study on human skulls
Dental wear, both of the occlusal or proximal surfaces, is inevitable and results from physiological and pathological factors [1]. Evidence from anthropological studies has suggested that severe tooth wear might not only affect the teeth and occlusion, but it might also have more wide-ranging effects on overall dento-facial morphology [2,3]. Since studies based on contemporary subjects have confirmed these findings [4], it is believed that the adult dento-facial complex is not a static entity but could compensate for some of the dental effects of wear.
