Digitally Fabricated Removable Complete Denture Clinical Workflows using Additive Manufacturing Techniques.

J Prosthodont 2021 May;30(S2):133-138

Private Practice, San Francisco, California.

The use of computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing in the fabrication of complete removable dentures has demonstrated that the prostheses produced are superior in many ways to removable dentures produced using analog techniques. A variety of clinical workflows that take advantage of digital technology have been shown to shorten the number of appointments required to produce high quality prostheses. This paper presents an overview of additive manufacturing in contemporary removable complete denture workflows and describes effective three appointment clinical techniques using additive manufacturing to produce a clinical trial denture and definitive prosthesis.

Oral care and oral assessment guide in breast cancer patients receiving everolimus and exemestane: subanalysis of a randomized controlled trial (Oral Care-BC).

Ann Transl Med 2021 Apr;9(7):535

Department of Breast and Endocrine Surgery, Tokai University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: Oral mucositis is a clinically significant adverse event linked to cancer therapy; it reduces the quality of life of patients and may result in the discontinuation of treatment and a poorer prognosis. Based on level 3 evidence, the Mucositis Study Group of Multinational Association for Supportive Care in Cancer and the International Society of Oral Oncology recommend oral care for all patients receiving cancer chemotherapy and radiotherapy, although no data from large-scaled randomized controlled trials support the efficacy of oral care in preventing oral mucositis. Therefore, this randomized, controlled, multicenter, open-label, phase III study sought to determine whether professional oral care reduces oral mucositis in everolimus and exemestane-treated estrogen receptor-positive metastatic breast cancer patients.

A Modified Removable Space Maintainer for Compromised Dentition of Children: A Case Series.

Int J Clin Pediatr Dent 2020 Nov-Dec;13(6):722-724

Department of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry, Institute of Dental Studies and Technologies, Modinagar, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Despite the attempt in prevention, premature loss of primary teeth remains to be a frequent problem in pediatric dentistry, resulting in disturbance of arch integrity and unfavorably affecting the alignment of permanent successors. Space maintainers (SMs) are distinctive appliances used for maintaining space created due to premature loss of primary teeth. But at times the dentition of children is so compromised that it prevents the use of a conventional SM. Read More

The use of digital texture image analysis in determining the masticatory efficiency outcome.

PLoS One 2021 6;16(5):e0250936. Epub 2021 May 6.

Clinic for Prosthetic Dentistry, Faculty of Dental Medicine, University of Belgrade, Belgrade, Serbia.

The mixture level of gum samples consisting of two colours can be assessed visually, using the electronic colorimetric method, employing digital image processing techniques and specially designed software. The study investigates the possibility of an alternative method called "digital texture image analysis" (DTIA) to assess improvement of masticatory efficiency in denture wearers. The objectives were i) to evaluate whether DTIA discriminates changes in the colour mixing ability within a group over time; ii) to determine whether DTIA can be used to detect improvement in chewing ability; iii) to select the most appropriate DTIA feature that sufficiently describes masticatory efficiency in CDs wearers.
