Acta Odontol Scand 2020 Mar 6:1-5. Epub 2020 Mar 6.

Department of Endodontics, Faculty of Dentistry, Ondokuz Mayıs University, Samsun, Turkey.

The aim of this study was to investigate the accuracy of endoscopic visualization to detect root canal anastomoses at the coronal half of the mesial root canals of mandibular molars using micro-computed tomographic (micro-CT) images as reference. Seventy-four mesial roots of mandibular first molars with ( = 47) or without ( = 27) intercanal anastomosis were selected based on the micro-CT scans of 269 mandibular first molars at a pixel size of 10 µm. The specimens were mounted on the mannequins and their root canals were evaluated using dental operating microscope (DOM) and endoscope. Read More

Acta Odontol Scand 2020 Jul 19;78(5):377-383. Epub 2020 Feb 19.

Orofacial Pain and Jaw Function, Malmö University, Malmö, Sweden.

To follow up 2209 individuals in a longitudinal study and assess self-reported TMD pain, painful and non-painful comorbid conditions, and pain-related disability. During 2012-2014, questionnaires were sent to 2209 eligible individuals who had been screened for TMD pain each year during 2000-2003. The two screening questions were (1) Do you have pain in the temple, face, jaw joint, or jaws once a week or more often? and (2) Do you have pain when you open your mouth wide or chew once a week or more often? If the patient answered 'yes' to one or both of the questions, TMD pain was recorded. Read More
