Marginal and internal fit of full ceramic crowns milled using CADCAM systems on cadaver full arch scans.

BMC Oral Health 2020 Jul 6;20(1):189. Epub 2020 Jul 6.

Department of Oral Rehabilitation, College of Dental Medicine, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC, USA.

Multiple calcifying hyperplastic dental follicles: a major diagnostic consideration in multiple pericoronal lesions - report of two cases.

BMC Oral Health 2020 Jun 1;20(1):159. Epub 2020 Jun 1.

Laboratory of Pathology Research, Department of Microbiology and Pathology, University Centre of Health Sciences, Universidad de Guadalajara, Sierra Mojada No. 950, Col. Independencia, C.P. 44340, Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

Background: Pericoronal radiolucent lesions are a common radiographic finding, but it is rare that they occur in multiple forms. Multiple calcifying hyperplastic dental follicles (MCHDF) are entities with few cases described to date; nevertheless, they appear to have a very particular phenotypic pattern.

Cases Presentation: Case 1: A 10-year-old male was evaluated radiographically, revealing four impacted canines, each accompanied by unilocular pericoronal radiolucency. 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.

Do nurses have barriers to quality oral care practice at a generalized hospital care in Asmara, Eritrea? A cross-sectional study.

BMC Oral Health 2020 May 20;20(1):149. Epub 2020 May 20.

Epidemiology and Biostatistics Unit, Department of Statistics, College of Sciences, Eritrean Institute of Technology, MaiNefhi, Eritrea.

Background: Oral care is a fundamental nursing practice that has a great impact on patient well-being and general health during hospitalization. Nurses are responsible for providing oral care in the hospital, however, they usually implement it unsatisfactorily due to inadequate resources, lack of standard protocol, time shortage and ineffective training. The aim of the study was, therefore, to assess nurses' barriers to quality oral care practice at a generalized hospital. Read More
