Double Full‐Arch Versus Single Full‐Arch, Four Implant‐Supported Rehabilitations: A Retrospective, 5‐Year Cohort Study
ConclusionsBased on the results, rehabilitating double‐ or single‐arch edentulous patients did not yield significant differences on survival curves. The incidence of mechanical complications was significantly higher for double‐arch rehabilitated patients but nevertheless, these mechanical complications did not affect the long‐term survival of either the prostheses or the implants.

Short‐Term Assessment of the OHIP‐14 Scale on Denture Wearers Using Adhesives
ConclusionsThe study shows that OHIP‐14 has a high internal reliability and consistency when applied to new denture wearers, and its score decreases if denture adhesives are used for at least 15 days. Low KIS and high KID contributes to this trend. Some OHIP‐14 items are more associated than others with the total score trend over time. (Source: Journal of Prosthodontics)

In Vitro Comparison of Marginal and Internal Fit of Press‐on‐Metal Ceramic (PoM) Restorations with Zirconium‐Supported and Conventional Metal Ceramic Fixed Partial Dentures Before and After Veneering
ConclusionThe gap measurements of the IPS InLine PoM and IPS e.max ZirCAD/Zir Press groups were all clinically acceptable. No studies on marginal and internal fit in the IPS InLine PoM system have been published to date. This study should be supported with future studies. No significant increase was observed after press‐veneering the IPS e.max ZirCAD frameworks with an IPS e.max ZirPress material; therefore, we recommend the use of this combination.

Effect of length post and remaining root tissue on fracture resistance of fibre posts relined with resin composite
Summary To investigate the influence of post length and amount of remaining root tissue on the fracture resistance of roots restored with fibre posts relined with resin composite. Ninety upper canine teeth were divided into nine groups (n = 10). The post spaces were prepared resulting in different lengths, as follows: group 2/3, preparations with lengths of 10 mm; group 1/2, preparations with lengths of 7·5 mm; and group 1/3, preparations with lengths of 5 mm. Each group was divided into 3 subgroups according to amount of remaining root tooth tissue (2, 1 mm or 0·5 mm of thick root). Fibre posts relined with resin...

CBCT‐based volume of simulated root resorption –influence of FOV and voxel size
ConclusionsDespite the FOV protocol, voxel size can influence measurement of simulated IRR volumes. The importance of standardization of CBCT image acquisition protocols is emphasized, especially during follow‐up of an IRR lesion, to prevent misinterpretation of its extent, which can create a bias in clinical decisions.This article is protected by copyright.

Correlation between the levels of non‐specific physical symptoms and pressure pain thresholds measured by algometry in patients with temporomandibular disorders
Summary Recent studies showed that patients with chronic TMD pain also feature increased sensitivity in other craniofacial regions, and even in remote peripheral areas, suggesting that nociceptive processing is centrally facilitated in this patient population. The aim of this study was to investigate the existence of a negative correlation between the levels of non‐specific physical symptoms and pressure pain thresholds measured by algometry at sites distant from the chief complaint of oro‐facial pain in patients with TMD. A total of 20 female patients were evaluated comprising 11 patients diagnosed with myofascial pai...

Nuclear factor I‐C expression pattern in developing teeth and its important role in odontogenic differentiation of human molar stem cells from the apical papilla
Nuclear factor I‐C (NFIC) has an important role in the development of murine dental roots, but its role in human root formation is unreported. We thus elucidated the regulatory role of NFIC in the differentiation of human stem cells from the apical papilla (hSCAPs). The first step for this was to determine the expression of NFIC in human teeth, and it was found that NFIC expression was restricted to the odontoblasts and preodontoblasts of the developing molars of humans and mice. NFIC was found to be expressed in odontoblast‐like cells after the subcutaneous transplantation of hSCAPs. NFIC expression was concomitant wi...

Anti‐biofilm and antibacterial activities of zinc oxide nanoparticles against the oral opportunistic pathogens Rothia dentocariosa and Rothia mucilaginosa
In this study, two bacterial isolates, Ora‐7 and Ora‐16, were obtained from the oral cavity of a healthy male subject and identified as Rothia dentocariosa and Rothia mucilaginosa, respectively, using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. Antimicrobial and anti‐biofilm formation activities of zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO‐NPs), of average size 35 nm, were assessed in in vitro assays using Crystal Violet and live and dead staining techniques. The ZnO‐NPs exhibited an IC50 value of 53 and 76 μg ml−1 against R. dentocariosa and R. mucilaginosa, respectively. Biofilm‐formation assays, performed on the surfaces o...

Ocular Defect Rehabilitation Using Photography and Digital Imaging: A Clinical Report
Abstract Ocular disorders occasionally necessitate surgical intervention that may lead to eye defects. The primary objective in restoring and rehabilitating such defects with an ocular prosthesis is to enable patients to cope better with associated psychological stress and to return to their accustomed lifestyle. A series of detailed steps for custom‐made ocular prosthesis fabrication using the advantages of digital photography to replace the conventional oil paint and monopoly iris painting technique are presented in this article. In the present case, a digital photograph of the patient's iris was captured using a digit...

Effect of Veneering Methods on Zirconia Framework—Veneer Ceramic Adhesion and Fracture Resistance of Single Crowns
ConclusionVeneering methods based on layering or pressing may reduce ceramic chipping but the overcemented file‐splitting method does not seem to prevent this failure. Clinical SignificanceLayering and overpressing veneering methods on zirconia frameworks with reduced design might decrease chipping compared to overcemented file‐splitting, where in the latter, zirconia framework and feldspathic suprastructure are combined using a resin cement.

Cellular composition of long‐standing gingivitis and periodontitis lesions
ConclusionPeriodontitis lesions at teeth with advanced attachment and bone loss exhibit quantitative and qualitative differences in relation to gingivitis lesions at teeth with no attachment and bone loss. It is suggested that the large number and high density of plasma cells are the hallmarks of advanced periodontitis lesions and the most conspicuous difference in relation to long‐standing gingivitis lesions.

Concomitant contact allergy to formaldehyde and methacrylic monomers in students of dental medicine and dental patients
Conclusions The students of the 3rd and 4th year of dental medicine could be outlined as a group at risk of sensitization to MMA and TEGDMA and of cross-sensitization to MMA and formaldehyde. Probably, due to the ubiquitous occurrence of formaldehyde and the wide use of composite resins and bonding agents containing TEGDMA, ethyleneglycol dimethacrylate, 2-HEMA and tetrahydrofurfuryl methacrylate in dentistry, the group of dental patients could be at risk of cross-sensitization to formaldehyde and some methacrylic monomers.

Thinning factors influence on custom‐made mouthguards thermoforming
Abstract The aim of this study was to clarify and quantify factors influencing thinning during a thermoforming using a special simulation model that has three different flat surfaces such as 0 degree, 45 degree and 90 degree against a pressurizing force. Air pressure type samples were made by EVA and acrylic resin blank. Vacuum type samples were also made by EVA. Thickness gauge was employed to measure the thickness. As results, pressure forming showed significantly larger thinning at 45 and 90 degree surfaces and smaller thinning at 0 degree surface, 36% in thinning rate by vacuum forming and 66% by the pressure forming a...
