Aust Dent J 2020 Apr 11. Epub 2020 Apr 11.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, Private Practice, Townsville, Queensland, Australia.

Tooth autotransplantation is the technique of transplanting embedded, impacted or erupted teeth from one site into another in the same individual. Autotransplantation can provide a long-term, cost-effective and biological solution for adolescent patients with congenitally missing teeth or significantly compromised teeth when a suitable donor tooth is available. Successful autotransplantation of immature teeth can offer many advantages for a growing patient, including a normally functioning periodontium, proprioception and preservation of alveolar bone volume.

Pre-eruptive intracoronal resorption (PIER) can be described by the presence of coronal radiolucency in a unerupted tooth. Upon eruption, the resorbed dentine might leave the occlusal layer of enamel unsupported and susceptible to fracture, potentially exposing the pulp chamber and root canals to the oral flora. With current case studies showing unfavourable endodontic and restorative consequences of PIER lesions when left untreated, this case report presents an unchanged lesion, 7 years following initial identification.

The extraction of permanent molar teeth was first introduced in 1976 as a substitution for premolar extraction in cases with mild crowding. Since then, a number of studies have investigated the effect of permanent molar extraction on dentofacial harmony. Undertaking the procedure of molar extraction is most commonly recommended in response to factors such as: gross caries, large restorations and root-filled teeth, along with its application in the management of anterior open bite and reduction in crowding in facial regions.

Evaluation of in vitro Streptococcus mutans and Actinomyces naeslundii attachment and growth on restorative materials surfaces.

Aust Dent J 2019 12 10;64(4):365-375. Epub 2019 Oct 10.

Faculty of Dentistry, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong SAR, China.

Background: Restorative materials have varying surface characteristics from natural tooth, which may affect oral-bacterial surface attachment/growth. This study examined 48-h Streptococcus mutans (Sm) or Actinomyces naeslundii (An) growth on various restorative materials and tooth surfaces.

Methods: The quantity and viability of 48-hour-old Sm and An growth on polished (180- or 1200-grits), saliva-coated resin composite (RC), glass ionomer cements (GIC), resin-modified GIC (R-GIC), GIC containing casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate (3% (w/w), CPP-ACP GIC), amalgam or tooth blocks (5 × 5 × 1 mm ) were examined.
