Enamel matrix derivative improves gingival fibroblast cell behavior cultured on titanium surfaces
Conclusion The results from the present study favor the use of EMD for colonization of gingival fibroblasts on titanium surfaces by increasing cell growth, spreading, and synthesis of an extracellular matrix. The improvements were primarily irrespective of surface topography. Future animal and human studies are necessary to fully characterize the beneficial effects of incorporating EMD during soft tissue regeneration of implant protocols. Clinical relevance The use of EMD may speed up the quality of soft tissue integration around dental implants by facilitating gingival cel...

Role of cardiovascular disease markers in periodontal infection: Understanding the risk
Conclusions:The positive correlation observed suggests this pathway as one of the mechanisms that may lead to increasing severity of periodontal disease and its systemic effects. Further research efforts should be made in designing appropriate clinical trials, starting at an early stage and monitoring the potential benefits of maintenance of oral hygiene on cardiovascular health.

Assessment of stability of orthodontic mini-implants under orthodontic loading: A computed tomography study
Conclusion: Miniscrews are a stable anchorage for orthodontic tooth movement but do not remain absolutely stationary like an endosseous implant throughout orthodontic loading although miniscrews might move according to placement site, orthodontic loading, and inflammation of peri-implant tissue. Waiting period between miniscrews placement and orthodontic loading does not significantly affect the miniscrew mobility so immediate loading can be recommended. To prevent hitting any vital organs because of miniscrew mobility, it is recommended that they can be placed in a nontooth-bearing area that has no foramen, major nerves, ...

Fate of third molar in line of mandibular angle fracture - Retrospective study
Conclusion: The present study fails to identify any concrete factors that would predict the failure of the retained third molar that were involved in the line of mandibular fractures. The proof presented here, especially with low complication rates indicate that all impacted third molar along the line of fracture be removed and unless necessary, the partially erupted teeth would also be extracted. In such a situation, the rate of infection and survival of the third molar would have been entirely different. (Source: Table of Contents : Indian Journal of Dental Research : 2006 - 17(3))

Pneumatization of the temporal portion of the zygomatic arch: The contribution of computed tomography to the reconstruction in volumetric two-dimensional and three-dimensional, with the aid of image rendering protocols
CM Romano-Sousa, E Garritano-PapaIndian Journal of Dental Research 2015 26(3):324-327Pneumatization refers to the asymptomatic development of cavities containing air within them. There is great variability in the extent of temporal bone pneumatization. Nevertheless, in a few cases it extends to the zygomatic process. Images are presented in which the panoramic radiograph and hypocycloidal tomography reveal this variation from the norm, to which professionals must be alert, since the images may simulate the presence of pathology. In this case report we describe the presence of pneumatization of the petrous and zygomatic por...

Incidence of post-obturation pain after single-visit versus multiple-visit non-surgical endodontic treatments
Background: Post-obturation pain is frustrating to both patients and dentists. Its incidence may change with the use of contemporary endodontic techniques. This randomised clinical trial aims to compare the incidence of post-obturation pain at one and seven days after single-visit and multiple-visit non-surgical endodontic treatments. Methods: Patients who required primary endodontic treatment in the two clinical trial centres in Hong Kong (HK) and in Beijing (PK) were recruited. Three HK dentists and three PK dentists performed endodontic treatments on 567 teeth using the same procedures and materials, either in a single ...

3 Foods Your Dentist Will Love
I have always been a bit of a baby when it comes to the dentist. I don't know if it's the weird thing sucking saliva out of my mouth or the bright light they shine toward my face; either way, let's just say I'm not in love (and that's putting it lightly). Research shows I'm not the only one who is not thrilled about being x-rayed, poked, and cleaned. According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research's (NIDCR) National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 92% of adults aged 20 to 64 have had cavities in their permanent teeth. As a dietitian, I have come to understand that our eating patterns and f...
