Magnetic resonance imaging artefacts and fixed orthodontic attachments.
CONCLUSIONS/IMPLICATIONS: Our results show that ceramic brackets with metal slots and titanium brackets do not always have to be removed before MRI scans of the head and neck, depending on the area under investigation. Metal fixed retainers should only be removed if the oral cavity itself is under investigation. Stainless steel brackets should always be removed before MRI scans of the head and neck.

Dental school's diversity pipeline a success
When Raquel Ulma moved to Los Angeles with her husband, Greg, in 2002, he knew that it was time for her to start making her lifelong dream of becoming a dentist a reality, even though she had no idea how. So Greg encouraged her to attend the annual California Dental Association session with a friend. “I actually crashed the dentistry event,” confessed Ulma, who goes by “Rocky.” “I approached the Hispanic Dental Association booth and struck up a conversation with a female dentist who was approachable and welcoming.” Soon Ulma was telling Dr. Lilia Larin about her goal of becoming a dentist. The two exchanged con...

Maxillary Sinus Augmentation without Grafting Material with Simultaneous Implant Installation: A Three‐Dimensional Finite Element Analysis
ConclusionFor maxillary sinus augmentation without grafting material implant technique, the stress of different tissues and the displacement of the implant were not increased much when the height of alveolar ridge is more than 7 mm. But if the alveolar bone height is less than 4 mm, this implant technique is not suggested. Immediately loading is not suggested and the loading opportunity should be after the stiff callus stage at least to improve the success rate. (Source: Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research)

Extraction treatment of a Class II division 2 malocclusion with mandibular posterior discrepancy and changes in stomatognathic function.
Abstract Abstract This case report describes the successful extraction treatment of a Class II division 2 malocclusion with mandibular posterior discrepancy and a congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisor on the left side. The posterior space in the mandibular arch was small, and the mandibular second molars were impacted, with distal tipping. The discrepancies in the maxillary and mandibular arches were resolved by extraction of the maxillary lateral incisor on the right side and the mandibular second premolars on both sides. The mesial movement of the mandibular first molars occurred appropriately, with the ...

Quantifying patient adherence during active orthodontic treatment with removable appliances using microelectronic wear-time documentation.
CONCLUSIONS: The daily wear time of removable appliances during the active phase of orthodontic therapy can be routinely quantified using integrated microelectronic sensors. The relationship between orthodontist and patient seems to play a key role in patient adherence. Wear-time documentation provides the basis for more individualized wear-time recommendations for patients with removable appliances. This could result in a more efficient, shorter, and less painful orthodontic therapy. PMID: 24993614 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: European Journal of Orthodontics)

BigMouth: a multi-institutional dental data repository.
Abstract Few oral health databases are available for research and the advancement of evidence-based dentistry. In this work we developed a centralized data repository derived from electronic health records (EHRs) at four dental schools participating in the Consortium of Oral Health Research and Informatics. A multi-stakeholder committee developed a data governance framework that encouraged data sharing while allowing control of contributed data. We adopted the i2b2 data warehousing platform and mapped data from each institution to a common reference terminology. We realized that dental EHRs urgently need to adopt c...

Fetal jaw movement affects Ihh signaling in mandibular condylar cartilage development: The possible role of Ihh as mechanotransduction mediator
Jaw movement is an important mechanical factor for prenatal development of the condylar cartilage of mandible. Fetal jaw movement restriction has been shown to cause deformity of the mandibular condyle. We hypothesized that this treatment affects the expression of mechanosensitive molecules, namely Indian hedgehog (Ihh) and Parathyroid hormone related protein (PTHrP) in the condyle.

Low dose propranolol decreases orthodontic movement
During orthodontic movement, force is applied to the teeth, and areas of pressure and tension are formed in the periodontal ligament (PDL), the connective tissue that connects the tooth to its surrounding alveolar bone.1 Mechanical loading also alters periodontal tissue vascularity and blood flow, which results in the synthesis and release of various molecules, locally, such as neurotransmitters, cytokines, growth factors, and arachidonic acid metabolites. These molecules evoke a cellular response in the different cell types surrounding the teeth, providing a favourable microenvironment for bone deposition and resorption. ...

A technique for the presurgical simulation of the position of computer-assisted, template-based, planned implants: A clinical report
Computer-assisted oral implant surgery offers several advantages over the traditional approach. However, several unexpected procedure-linked adverse events during guided implant placement indicate that the clinical demands on the surgeon are no less than those observed during conventional placement. The aim of this report was to present a novel technique for the presurgical simulation of the position of computer-assisted, template-based, planned implants immediately before surgery. The presented technique could increase the clinician’s confidence and the safety of the surgical procedures, which allows changes to the orig...

A subtractive radiographic template for computer-guided surgery
The procedure for creating a computer-aided design/computer-aided manufactured surgical template with the NobelClinician software was originally designed for the completely edentulous arch. With the development of new techniques and expanded functions in the software, guided surgery for the partially edentulous became a viable option. As of yet, few protocols have been reported for the guided surgery of immediate implants with the NobelClinician software. A new technique is described whereby the radiographic template is modified to allow the use of guided surgery for the immediate placement of dental implants after extract...

The effect of dentifrice abrasion on denture topography and the subsequent retention of microorganisms on abraded surfaces
Denture surfaces provide hard nonshedding niches for the adhesion and subsequent accumulation of oral microorganisms into denture plaque, which can harbor various potential pathogens linked with oral mucosal lesions and inhalation pneumonia. The initial adhesion is the prerequisite for subsequent biofilm growth, and surface roughness niches facilitate this process by trapping cells. Retained microorganisms are then able to proliferate when the denture is returned to the oral cavity. (Source: Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry)

Antiseptic effect of slightly acidic electrolyzed water on dental unit water systems.
Abstract Biofilm formation in dental unit water systems (DUWSs) can contaminate water from three-in-one syringes, air rotors, and low-speed handpieces. This may serve as a potential source of infection for dentists, dental staff, and patients, so these systems must be sterilized. Because slightly acidic electrolyzed water (SAEW) is often used as a disinfectant for food, the aim of this study was to investigate the possibility of using SAEW as a DUWS disinfectant. Slightly acidic electrolyzed water was injected into a dental unit and its effects evaluated. Chemical properties such as chlorine ion and potential hydro...
