Purpose: The impact of mediotrusive (MT) occlusal contacts has been a topic of controversy and confusion in both clinical practice and in the dental literature. The purpose of this Best Evidence Consensus Statement was to explore whether MT interferences are harmful in the natural or therapeutic occlusion directed by 4 focus questions relating to prevalence, jaw function, jaw dysfunction and biomechanical models.Materials And Methods: An electronic search in October 2020 sought evidence in MEDLINE (Ovid) using (mediotrus* OR nonworking side OR nonworking contact OR balancing side OR interfer* side OR premature contact) in the multipurpose (.

Purpose: Patients in need of extensive prosthodontic treatment may need restoration of their occlusal vertical dimension (OVD) due to tooth wear, tooth loss, or changes that have occurred to existing prostheses over time. Prosthodontic treatment is based on the clinical application of the available evidence regarding interocclusal distance (IOD), the positional stability of rest vertical dimension (RVD), and the effect of altering the OVD. Hence, the purpose of this consensus document is to examine available data related to IOD, RVD, and alteration of the OVD. Read More

Purpose: The purpose of this Best Evidence Consensus Statement was to evaluate the existing literature relative to two focus questions: What are the techniques used and their reproducibility in recording centric relation (CR) in a dentate and partially dentate population and what effect do different recording materials have on the reproducibility of CR?Materials And Methods: Keywords used in the initial search were: CR, interocclusal records, CR accuracy, CR reproducibility, and CR technique. The search was then limited to Systematic Reviews, Randomized Controlled Studies, Meta-analyses, and Clinical Trials.Results: Initial search related to the selected search terms resulted in more than 3500 articles.

With increasing global trends in aesthetic surgery, the facial plastic surgeon will undoubtedly encounter a variety of patient types including those with more unfavorable underlying anatomy. The "difficult" neck represents a cohort of individuals that exhibit both anatomical and patient-related factors that may limit overall surgical improvement. Anatomical issues that contribute to the difficult neck include excessive fat ("heavy" neck), ptosis of deep structures, obtuse cervicomental angle, and abnormalities of the underlying skeletal framework, such as a low set hyoid and inadequate chin projection.

The consequences of abusive head trauma (AHT) can be devastating for both the individual child and for wider society. Death is undoubtedly a very real possibility, but even for those children who survive, there is often very significant morbidity with the potential for gross motor and cognitive impairment, behavioural problems, blindness and epilepsy, which can greatly affect their quality of life. Caring for such children places a vast financial and infrastructural burden on society that frequently extends well into adulthood. Read More
