Surface Roughness of Glass Ionomer Cements after Application of Different Polishing Techniques.

Acta Stomatol Croat 2018 Dec;52(4):314-321

Department of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry, School of Dental Medicine University of Zagreb.

Glass Ionomer Cements (GIC) have been widely used in clinical practice since they have a wide range of positive characteristics: chemical bonding to the tooth surface, fluoride release, a heat-expansion coefficient similar to the tooth, do not require an absolutely dry working area, less volumetric contraction, good color stability. Physical properties can be improved by using external energy such as ultrasound and radiant heat , which also accelerates chemical curing. The aim of this study was to determine the most effective polishing technique and to compare the surface roughness of two Glass Ionomer Cements after treatment with heat and without heat treatment during the setting process.

Evaluation of Spontaneous Bone Healing After Enucleation of Large Residual Cyst in Maxilla without Graft Material Utilization: Case Report.

Acta Stomatol Croat 2018 Mar;52(1):53-60

Department of Oral Surgery, Medical Faculty, University of Prishtina, Dental Branch, 10000 Prishtina, Kosovo.

Cystic lesions of the jaws such as keratocysts (scientific community still continues to use the term 'odontogenic keratocyst' more favourably than 'keratocystic odontogenic tumour' although both terms remain acceptable synonyms), follicular cysts, radicular cysts, and residual cysts may reach large proportions, causing considerable bone destruction. Enucleation of cystic lesions in the jaw produces bone defects, which may recover spontaneously or with assisted healing with the use of autogenous bone graft or other bone substitute materials. This clinical study presents a spontaneous bone regeneration after residual cyst enucleation in the distal part of the maxilla. Read More
