In situ evaluation of low-fluoride toothpastes associated to calcium glycerophosphate on enamel remineralization
Conclusions Toothpastes with 500ppm F (NaF or MFP) and CaGP showed similar remineralization potential than 1100ppm F toothpaste.Clinical Significance: Toothpastes containing 500ppm F associated to CaGP, with both fluoride source (NaF or MFP), showed a potential of remineralization similar to commercial toothpaste. Although there is a need for confirmation in the clinical setting, these results point to an alternative for improving the risk-benefit relationship between fluorosis and dental caries in small children (Source: Journal of Dentistry)

NF-kB mediated down-regulation of collagen synthesis upon HEMA (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) treatment of primary human gingival fibroblast/Streptococcus mutans co-cultured cells
Conclusion The modulation exerted by S. mutans on the cytotoxic effect of HEMA suggests that within the oral cavity, the eukaryotic/prokaryotic cell interactions, maintaining the balance of the environment, allow HEMA to perform its adhesive and bonding function and that the use of a co-culture system, which simulates the oral cavity organization, improves the knowledge concerning the biocompatibility of this dental material.

Innovations in Dental Care Delivery for the Older Adult
Access to and reducing disparities in oral health for older adults is a complex problem that requires innovative strategies. In addition to offering dental services in alternative settings, such as senior centers, places that are familiar to older adults, and where physical limitations can be better accommodated, alternatives to the traditional provider should be considered. Many states are changing laws and practice acts to allow dental hygienists to provide preventive services without the supervision of a dentist. Also, collaborations between dental and non-dental professionals can be a successful strategy for increasing...

Treatment Planning Considerations in Older Adults
The older patient often presents with clinically challenging dental problems combined with complex medical, social, psychological, and financial barriers to oral health. Through careful consideration, the clinician can design a thoughtfully sequenced treatment plan that addresses dental conditions and facilitates improved oral health. Several models serve to guide the clinician with this endeavor. Treatment planning for a medically complex patient with xerostomia and dementia involves a great deal of uncertainty, which may be attenuated by flexibility and good communication with the patient and all involved parties.

Geriatric Dentistry
Good oral health is increasingly recognized today as an integral part of the total health care picture that helps ensure well-being. Health care providers are beginning to understand that poor oral health affects the course of many systemic diseases and additionally has a strong association in the development of other diseases. Consequently, poor oral health is considered a risk factor for poor overall health. (Source: Dental Clinics of North America)

Efficacy of four different irrigation techniques combined with 60[degree sign]C 3% sodium hypochlorite and 17% EDTA in smear layer removal
Conclusions: Even without any activation, the combination of 60[degree sign]C 3% NaOCl and 17% EDTA could remove the smear layer effectively, similar to NaviTip FX or EndoActivator, and these three protocols were more effective than UI. However, regardless of different types of irrigation technique applied, complete removal of the smear layer was not achieved, particularly in the apical third.

Does post-bleaching fluoridation affect the further demineralization of bleached enamel? An in vitro study
Conclusions: Regarding the results of our in vitro study, the risk of further demineralization was significantly reduced with the use of TiF4 and NaF after bleaching with 38% HP. TiF4was found to be more effective in preventing Ca2+ release owing to acid attack when compared with NaF. In the case of an intra-oral acidic exposure, the use of topical 1.5% TiF4 and 2.1% NaF agents might be beneficial after bleaching with 38% HP. (Source: BMC Oral Health - Latest articles)

Temporomandibular Joint Fibrocartilage Degeneration from Unilateral Dental Splints
The development of effective interventions for the treatment of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders (TMD) has been hindered by the fact that preclinical models of TMD inadequately reflect the pathology of the human state. Patients who undergo surgery often have both pain and abnormal joint functional loading 1,2. In more severe cases, there is also degeneration of the articulating tissues, including the TMJ disc and the condylar fibrocartilage 3. However, it is not clear whether abnormal loading leads to degeneration and then pain, or degeneration leads to abnormal loading and pain. (Source: Archives of Oral Biology)

xzMechanisms of action of fluoridated acidic liquid dentifrices against dental caries
The reduction of fluoride (F) intake by children is an important strategy to minimize the risk of dental fluorosis occurrence.1–4 In early childhood, the use of conventional 1100μgF/g dentifrice significantly contributes to the daily F ingestion dose.2 Therefore, a possible alternative would be the use of low-F (around 500μgF/g) dentifrices. However, only few studies assessed the anticaries effect of low-F dentifrices in the primary dentition and there is still uncertainty about the effectiveness of low-F dentifrices to prevent caries when compared to conventional ones (around 1000μgF/g).

Synergistic effects of chitosan scaffold and TGFβ on the proliferation and osteogenic differentiation of dental pulp stem cells derived from human exfoliated deciduous teeth
In orthopedics and dentistry, bone defects caused by trauma, disease, or surgery are commonly treated using bone grafts.1 Autologous bone graft is considered the gold standard for augmenting bone regeneration in situ; however, autologous bone is of limited availability and grafting enhances the risk of donor site morbidity. Additionally, allografts are susceptible to immunologic reactions and disease transmission,2 which has stimulated the development of alternative treatments and approaches. Tissue engineering and cell-based therapies prompt the regeneration of various tissues and organs in vitro. (Source: Archives of Oral Biology)
