Orthodontic bracket slot dimensions as measured from entire bracket series.
Conclusion: The clinician is unlikely to have on hand complete sets (upper and lower 5-5) of ideal brackets and should both expect and be able to be accommodate tooth movement through wire bending in three planes of space to overcome any bracket deficiencies.

Effects of different artificial ageing methods on the degradation of adhesive–dentine interfaces
Conclusions Water storage, thermocycling, NaOCl storage and pH cycling could obtain similar degradation effectiveness through appropriate parameter selection. However, each in vitro artificial ageing method had its own mechanisms, characteristics and application scope. Researchers focusing on bonding durability studies should be deliberate in selecting an appropriate ageing model based on the differences of test material, purpose and time.

Immediate loading of implants placed in patients with untreated periodontal disease: A 5-year prospective cohort study.
CONCLUSIONS: Within the limitations of this study, it is possible to conclude that the rehabilitation of patients with untreated periodontitis using immediately loaded dental implants is feasible in the medium-term, when periodontal therapy is provided after rehabilitation and the patients are regularly maintained.

Peri-implant bone innervation: Histological findings in humans.
CONCLUSIONS: This study shows the presence of nerve fibres in human peri-implant bone. Previous studies in animals showed that those fibres participate in the process of bone modelling and remodelling. Yet, the role of peri-implant bone innervation in the osseoperception phenomenon cannot be ruled out since the mechanism of mechanoreception in bone is not fully understood.

Five-year outcome of a retrospective cohort study on the rehabilitation of completely edentulous atrophic maxillae with immediately loaded zygomatic implants placed extra-maxillary.
CONCLUSIONS: The long term outcome (5 years) of rehabilitations performed on patients with completely edentulous, severely atrophic maxillae supported by immediately loaded zygomatic implants alone, or in combination with conventional implants, is satisfactory.

Computer-guided versus free-hand placement of immediately loaded dental implants: 1-year post-loading results of a multicentre randomised controlled trial.
CONCLUSIONS: When treatment planning was made on 3D CBTC scan using a dedicated software, no statistically significant differences were observed between computer-guided and a free-hand rehabilitations, with the exception of more postoperative pain and swelling at sites treated freehand because more frequently flaps were elevated.

Influence of bone marrow on osseointegration in long bones: an experimental study in sheep

Peri‐implant complications for posterior endosteal implants
ConclusionsParticipants who did not require any second‐stage surgery at the implant sites experienced fewer complications. Therefore, additional surgical procedures should be performed judiciously considering their possible effects on peri‐implant tissue health. Clinical significanceThe clinical implication of this research study is that secondary surgery should be considered with caution during implant placement and it should be performed only when other options have been exhausted, as it has been shown to have a direct adverse effect on the long‐term peri‐implant tissue health.

New 3D technologies applied to assess the long‐term clinical effects of misfit of the full jaw fixed prosthesis on dental implants
ConclusionsCombining STL files with best‐fit algorithms to appraise misfit is feasible using metrological software. The effect of misfit between the superstructures on its supporting implants up to ~230 μm on the long‐term clinical outcomes appears to be minor, apart from a slightly higher risk of screw‐related adverse events.

Over two hundred million injuries to anterior teeth attributable to large overjet: a meta‐analysis
ConclusionsReliability and generalizability of pooled ORs were high enough and made it possible to assess that the fraction of global TDIs attributable to large overjet is 21.8% (95CI, 9.7–34.5%) and that large overjet is co‐responsible for 235 008 000 global TDI cases (95CI, 104,760,000‐372,168,000). This high global burden of TDI suggests that preventive measures must be implemented in patients with large overjet. (Source: Dental Traumatology)

Effect of intraoperative analgesia on children’s pain perception during recovery after painful dental procedures performed under general anaesthesia
Conclusions Diclophenac sodium is more potent than acetaminophen, especially for multiple pain-provoking or traumatic procedures. A timely use of NSAID analgesia just before extubation helps provide adequate coverage during recovery. Peri-operative analgesia is to be recommended as an essential treatment adjunct for child dental rehabilitation under general anaesthesia. (Source: European Archives of Paediatric Dentistry)

Reproducibility of subgingival bacterial samples from patients with peri-implant mucositis
Conclusion While an acceptable clinical agreement was obtained in most cases, diverging bacterial scores may appear in subgingival samples collected at the same time point from patients with peri-implant mucositis.

Long-term outcome and subjective quality of life after surgical treatment of lower lip cancer
Conclusions Squamous cell carcinoma of the lower lip shows a very favourable prognosis. Neck dissection seems often negligible particularly in small tumours. Patients’ functional quality of life after lip surgery depends on the size of the primary and the used technique. Stair-step and/or Abbe reconstructions should be preferred to a Bernard-Fries technique in comparable defect sizes. Clinical relevance Proper treatment of lower lip cancer provides favourable prognosis and preserves patients’ functional and aesthetic quality of life. (Source: Clinical Oral Investigations)

Anti-caries effect of CPP-ACP in irradiated nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients
Conclusion Application of CPP-ACP did not significantly reduce caries progression in NPC patients in the first 3 months after radiotherapy as compared to controls.

Bisphosphonates inhibit cell functions of HUVECs, fibroblasts and osteogenic cells via inhibition of protein geranylgeranylation
Conclusions Despite structural analogy to GGOH, the investigated isoprenoids are not able to prevent the N-BP effect. The negative impact of zoledronate on fibroblasts, HUVEC and osteogenic cells is due to inhibition of protein geranylgeranylation since the substitution of squalene and farnesyl did not have any effect on viability and wound healing capacity whereas GGOH did reduce the negative impact. Clinical relevance These data suggest the importance and exclusiveness of the mevalonate pathway intermediate GGOH as a potential therapeutic approach to bisphosphonate-associ...

Assessing caries status according to the CAST instrument and WHO criterion in epidemiological studies
Conclusions: The CAST instrument provided similar prevalence of dental caries values and dmf/DMF counts as the WHO criterion in this age group. Time spent on examining children was identical for both caries assessment methods. Presentation of results from use of the CAST instrument, in comparison to WHO criterion, allowed a more detailed reporting of stages of dental caries, which will be useful for oral health planners.

The effect of tooth age on colour adjustment potential of resin composite restorations
Conclusions The colour shifting effects at the border of the resin composite restorations were influenced by the age of the tooth. This behaviour might be influenced by the light transmission characteristics of dentine in restored teeth.
