The effectiveness of an actuator-driven pulsed water jet for the removal of artificial dental calculus: a preliminary study.

BMC Oral Health 2020 Jul 13;20(1):205. Epub 2020 Jul 13.

Department of Neurosurgery, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Sendai, Miyagi, Japan.

Background: While hand and ultrasonic scalers are the primary tools used for the removal of dental calculus in periodontal treatment, many studies have shown that they also damage the enamel surface. We have developed a novel actuator-driven pulsed water jet (ADPJ) system, which has the ability to selectively remove materials depending on their stiffness. Considering the different material properties between teeth and dental calculus, it might be possible to develop the ADPJ to remove dental calculus without damage to the tooth's enamel surface using a suitable jet pressure.

Psychometric evaluation of the child oral impacts on daily performances (C-OIDP) for use in Turkish primary school children: a cross sectional validation study.

BMC Oral Health 2020 Jun 19;20(1):173. Epub 2020 Jun 19.

Department of Basic Medical Science, Faculty of Dentistry, Istanbul University, Fatih, Istanbul, Turkey.

Background: As patient-reported outcome, the Child Oral Impacts on Daily Performances (C-OIDP) has been commonly used for assessing children's oral health needs in order to facilitate oral health service planning. It was translated and cross-culturally adapted into Turkish in 2008. Since then, there is no study to assess its psychometric properties in Turkish child population. Read More

Technical note on introducing a digital workflow for newborns with craniofacial anomalies based on intraoral scans - part II: 3D printed Tübingen palatal plate prototype for newborns with Robin sequence.

BMC Oral Health 2020 Jun 16;20(1):171. Epub 2020 Jun 16.

Department of Orthodontics, University Hospital Tuebingen, Osianderstr. 2-8, 72076, Tuebingen, Germany.

Background: Orthodontic treatment of newborns and infants with Robin-Sequence using the Tübingen Palatal Plate (TPP) is a complex procedure that could benefit from simplification through digitalization. The design of the velar extension (spur) and the palatal base determines the success of the treatment. Therefore, a prototype must be produced and inserted under endoscopic supervision in order to determine the appropriate shape, length and position of the spur. Read More

Efficacy of nano-carbonate apatite dentifrice in relief from dentine hypersensitivity following non-surgical periodontal therapy: a randomized controlled trial.

BMC Oral Health 2020 Jun 12;20(1):170. Epub 2020 Jun 12.

Key Laboratory of Oral Biomedical Research of Zhejiang Province, Zhejiang University School of Stomatology, Hangzhou, China.

Background: Dentine hypersensitivity (DH) could occur or intensify after non-surgical periodontal therapy because of the exposure of dentine tubules, but currently no gold standard exists to treat DH. It has been demonstrated that nano-sized particles presented potential for dentine tubules blocking and remineralization. This randomized controlled trial aimed to investigate the efficacy of dentifrice containing nano-carbonate apatite (n-CAP) in reducing dentine hypersensitivity (DH) after non-surgical periodontal therapy.

The step further smile virtual planning: milled versus prototyped mock-ups for the evaluation of the designed smile characteristics.

BMC Oral Health 2020 Jun 5;20(1):165. Epub 2020 Jun 5.

Department of General Surgery and Medical-Surgical Specialties, School of Dentistry, University of Catania, Catania, Italy.

Background: Mock-up based approach allows the preview of the aesthetic rehabilitation, however, it is crucial that the mock-up does not differ from the expected aesthetic outcomes. With CAD-CAM technologies, it is possible to directly create mock-ups from virtual planned smile project, with greater accuracy and efficiency compared to the conventional moulded mock-ups. In this study, we investigated the trueness of mock-ups obtained with milling and 3D printing technology and a full digital work-flow system. Read More

Does fasting during Ramadan increase the risk of the development of sialadenitis?

BMC Oral Health 2020 May 29;20(1):156. Epub 2020 May 29.

Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Baruch Padeh Medical Center, Poriya, Israel and Azrieli Faculty of Medicine, Bar-Ilan University, Safed, Israel.

Background: Ramadan is a month within the Islamic lunar calendar when Muslims are required to fast (abstain from food and drink) during the daytime (from sunrise to sunset) for the entire month. Due to the established connection between fasting and dehydration and acute sialadenitis, the aim of this study is to determine if there is a higher frequency of sialadenitis among the Muslim population during Ramadan than during other months of the year.

Methods: We conducted a retrospective study using the medical records of 120 Muslim patients admitted to the emergency room (ER) and diagnosed with acute sialadenitis over a 5-year period at the Baruch Padeh Medical Center, Poriya, and St. Read More
