Department of Biomedical, Surgical, and Dental Science, Università degli Studi di Milano, Milan, Italy.

The management of the alveolar socket is fundamental to create conditions that would allow the positioning of dental implants in the same site, when required. A number of biomaterials were described in scientific literature to be used for alveolar socket preservation immediately after tooth extraction: autogenous grafts, allograft (of various origin), and synthetic products. Among the autogenous biomaterials, some authors proposed the use of autogenous dentin and/or enamel, retrieved from teeth, adequately managed, and purified. Read More

Restorative and Prosthetic Dental Sciences, College of Dentistry, King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences, National Guard Health Affairs, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The regenerative endodontic procedure (REP) is considered a viable treatment option for immature teeth with necrotic pulp and periapical radiolucency which can facilitate continued root formation. In this report, an immature necrotic mandibular molar received REP in three appointments wherein chemomechanical debridement was performed with a sequential application of nonsetting calcium hydroxide (in the whole canal) and triple antibiotics paste (in the root's middle third) dressings in the first and second appointments, respectively. In the third appointment, blood clots were created in the root canals. Read More

Application of Platelet-Rich Fibrin as Regeneration Assistant in Immediate Auototransplantation of Third Molar with Unformed Roots: Case Report and Review of Literature.

Case Rep Dent 2020 21;2020:8170646. Epub 2020 Jan 21.

Department of Endodontics, Jordanian Royal Medical Services, Irbid, Jordan.

Background: Autogenous Tooth Transplantation (ATT) is the surgical movement of a maturely or immaturely formed tooth from its original site to another extraction site or a surgically prepared socket in the same individual. The most important factor in the healing process after autotransplantation is the presence of intact and viable periodontal ligament cells, which have the ability to differentiate into osteoblasts and able to induce bone production. ATT can successfully replace removable dentures as a restoration option in a growing patient, while implants can be placed only after skeletal maturity is attained. Read More

Case Rep Dent 2020 5;2020:7619715. Epub 2020 Feb 5.

Department of Biomedical, Surgical and Dental Sciences, University of Milan, Italy.

An implant-supported crown represents an established and validated option for single-tooth replacement; however, a restorative solution should be selected according to a wide number of factors including patient's desire, expectations, specific clinical conditions, and financial possibilities. The aim of this case report is to describe a conservative rehabilitation strategy for the replacement of a periodontally compromised mandibular incisor: the extracted natural tooth was used as a pontic bonded to adjacent elements with polyethylene fiber and resin composite. This way, a chairside fabrication of a resin-bonded fiber-reinforced prosthesis is possible, using the patient's own tooth. Read More

Closing spaces on light wires with inadequate knowledge and inappropriate mechanics can cause a "roller coaster" effect leading to an improper occlusion. Current knowledge of biomechanics, along with the incorporation of TADs, has made this process less challenging and more predictable. Resistance to sliding is considered the most prominent inhibitor of space closure in archwire-guided space closure or sliding mechanics, in turn delaying treatment duration considerably. Read More
