Subcutaneous emphysema during root canal therapy: endodontic accident by sodium hypoclorite.

Ann Stomatol (Roma) 2017 Sep-Dec;8(3):117-122. Epub 2018 Mar 8.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Sciences, "Sapienza" University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

Introduction: Cervicofacial subcutaneous emphysema is defined as the abnormal introduction of air in the subcutaneous tissues of the head and neck. It is mainly caused by trauma, head and neck surgery, general anesthesia, and coughing or habitual performance of Valsalva manoeuvre. The occurrence of subcutaneous emphysema after dental treatment is rare, and diffusion of gas into the mediastinum is much rarer, especially when the procedure is a nonsurgical treatment. Read More

Prevention of neurological injuries during mandibular third molar surgery: technical notes.

Ann Stomatol (Roma) 2017 Apr-Jun;8(2):45-52. Epub 2017 Nov 8.

Department of Biotechnologies and Medical Surgical Sciences, "Sapienza" University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

Surgery to the mandibular third molar is common, and injuries to the inferior alveolar nerve and the lingual nerve are well-recognized complications of this procedure. The aim of these technical notes is to describe operative measures for reducing neurological complications during mandibular third molar surgery. The following procedure should be used to prevent damage to the inferior alveolar nerve: a well-designed mucoperiosteal flap, to obtain appropriate access to the surgical area; a conservative ostectomy on the distal and distal-lingual side; tooth sectioning, to facilitate its removal by decreasing the retention zones; tooth dislocation in the path of withdrawal imposed by the curvature of the root apex; and careful socket debridement, when the roots of the extracted tooth are in intimate contact with the mandibular canal.

An extracted restoration-free human molar was stored in physiological solution until it was embedded in an autopolimerysing acrylic resin. A standard preparation for overlay was completed and after preparation an anatomic overlay was waxed on the tooth and then hot pressed using lithium disilicate ceramic. Read More

Endo-restorative treatment of a severly discolored upper incisor: resolution of the "aesthetic" problem through Componeer veneering System.

Ann Stomatol (Roma) 2015 Jul-Dec;6(3-4):113-8. Epub 2016 Feb 12.

Department of Oral and Maxillo Facial Sciences, School of Dentistry, "Sapienza" University of Rome, Italy.

Aim: Re-establishing a patient's lost dental aesthetic appearance is one of the most important topics for contemporary dentistry. New treatment materials and methods have been coming on the scene, day by day, in order to achieve such an aim. Most dentists prefer more conservative and aesthetic approaches, such as direct or indirect veneer restorations, instead of full-ceramic crowns for anteriors where aesthetics is really important.

Preventive strategies in oral health for special needs patients.

Ann Stomatol (Roma) 2015 Jul-Dec;6(3-4):96-9. Epub 2016 Feb 12.

Department of Oral and Maxillo Facial Sciences, "Sapienza" University of Rome, Italy.

As regards to the most common oral disease in pediatric patients, intellectual disability is not a risk factor for caries disease itself, but it rather reduces the individual capability to self-care and therefore to his own oral care. Children suffering of systemic pathologies and/or with different stages of disability are to be considered at high risk for dental caries development. According to recent guidelines for oral health prevention in childhood, individual additional strategies for a preventive care should be applied for these patients. Read More

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Sciences, Orthognathodontic Unit, "Sapienza" University of Rome, Italy.

Apert syndrome is a rare congenital disorder characterized by craniosynostosis, midface hypoplasia and symmetric syndactyly of hands and feet. Abnormalities associated with Apert syndrome include premature fusion of coronal sutures system (coronal sutures and less frequently lambdoid suture) resulting in brachiturricephalic dismorphism and impaired skull base growth. After this brief explanation it is clear that these anatomical abnormalities may have a negative impact on the ability to perform essential functions. Read More

Department of Periodontics and Oral Sciences, "Magna Graecia" University, Catanzaro, Italy.

Background: Chronic periodontitis affects 47% of adult population over the age of 30. The first phase of periodontal treatment is always represented by scaling and root planning (SRP), that is a causal, non-surgical therapy that recognizes as primary aims the control of bacterial infection and the reduction of periodontal plaque-associated inflammation. Yet, another innovative causal therapy is represented by the irradiation of periodontal pockets with laser. Read More

Evaluation of over-etching technique in the endodontically treated tooth restoration.

Ann Stomatol (Roma) 2015 Jan-Mar;6(1):10-4. Epub 2015 May 18.

Department of Oral and Maxillo Facial Sciences, School of Dentistry, "Sapienza" University of Rome, Italy.

The main purpose of a post-endodontic restoration with posts is to guarantee the retention of the restorative material. The aim of the study was to examine, through the push-out test, how bond strength between the post and the dentin varied with etching time with 37% orthophosphoric acid, before cementation of a glass fiber post. Moreover, it has been examined if over-etching (application time of the acid: 2 minutes) was an effective technique to improve the adhesion to the endodontic substrate, after highlighting the problems of adhesion concerning its anatomical characteristics and the changes after the endodontic treatment.
