Comparative evaluation of Chloroquick with Triphala, sodium hypochlorite, and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid on the microhardness of root canal dentin: An study.

J Clin Transl Res 2021 Feb 21;7(1):72-76. Epub 2021 Jan 21.

Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics, Narayana Dental College and Hospital. Chintareddypalem, Nellore, India.

Background: Irrigating solutions used for the elimination of microorganisms during root canal preparation affect the chemical and physical properties of dentin, thereby rendering the tooth more prone to fracture. Therefore, the careful and judicious selection of irrigant is required which has maximum benefits with minimum undesirable properties.

Aim: The study aimed to compare and evaluate the effect of Chloroquick with composition of 18% etidronic acid+ 5% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) with other irrigants such as Triphala, NaOCl, and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) on the microhardness of root canal dentin. Read More

The Cat Mandible (II): Manipulation of the Jaw, with a New Prosthesis Proposal, to Avoid Iatrogenic Complications.

Animals (Basel) 2021 Mar 4;11(3). Epub 2021 Mar 4.

Unit of Veterinary Anatomy and Embryology, Department of Anatomy, Animal Production and Clinical Veterinary Sciences, Faculty of Veterinary Sciences, Campus of Lugo-University of Santiago de Compostela, 27002 Lugo, Spain.

The cat mandible is relatively small, and its manipulation implies the use of fixing methods and different repair techniques according to its small size to keep its biomechanical functionality intact. Attempts to fix dislocations of the temporomandibular joint should be primarily performed by non-invasive techniques (repositioning the bones and immobilisation), although when this is not possible, a surgical method should be used. Regarding mandibular fractures, these are usually concurrent with other traumatic injuries that, if serious, should be treated first. Read More
