THE DENTIST – HOLDER OF THE “3M’s”
Alexandru Dumitru Brezoescu
As a liberal profession, being a physician is not similar to any other, as it occupies a special place and we can say without mistake that it is even a profession involving a personal sacrifice. To be a physician does not suppose only to implement the knowledge accumulated during one’s academic studies…(full text)

CHALLENGES FOR A NEW EDITORIAL YEAR
Marian-Vladimir Constantinescu
Dear Readers,
Beginnings and first steps are always difficult. It all started with an idea to have an ISI-listed journal in our outlying area. Then there came the desire to turn our dream into reality, to find a way to fulfill it, to be able to stir into action a great many professionals willing to share their specialized knowledge against…(full text)


  • RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY

GLASSIONOMER CEMENT FOR PERMANENT DENTAL RESTORATIONS: A 48-MONTHS, MULTI-CENTRE, PROSPECTIVE CLINICAL TRIAL
Matteo Basso, Eugenio Brambilla, Manuel Goñe Benites, Marta Giovannardi, Andrei C Ionescu
Glassionomer cements (GICs) were introduced in dentistry in the mid-seventies (1). They have a number of significant properties, such as the creation of a chemical bond with enamel and dentin collagen, a coefficient of thermal expansion almost equal to that of dental tissues and, most importantly, the ability to release fluoride ions over a significant amount of time (2,3)..

  • AESTHETICS

SMILE AESTHETICS APPRECIATED BY LAYPERSONS
Andreea-Virginia Ionescu-Lungu, Mihnea Iacob, Irina Nicoleta Zetu

The term “aesthetic” meets beauty, harmony and balance. As you know, beauty and aesthetics are subject to criteria that can vary infinitely, depending on various parameters including age, environment and trends. In recent years, orthodontists, and even the whole population, interest in aesthetics has grown a lot and is still growing (1). Although aesthetics can be very subjective and variable, depending on ethnicity may be defined characteristics of attractive people (2)…(full text) | (read more)

  •  DENTAL MATERIALS

FRACTAL ANALYSIS OF SOME RESTORATIVE NANO-FILLED COMPOSITE MATERIALS MICROSTRUCTURE
Irina Nica, Simona Stoleriu, Gianina Iovan, Galina Pancu, Sorin Andrian

The enormous research on ceramic nanosized particles during the past years has led to numerous innovations. One of these was the development of nano-composite materials, which are a relatively new class of materials of ultrafine phase dispesion, typically ranged between 1 and 100 nm. Experimental studies showed that various types of nano-composites lead to new and improved properties when compared to their micro and macro-composite counterparts (1)…(full text) | (read more)

  •  ORTHODONTICS

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT NEED AND ORAL HEALTH RELATED QUALITY OF LIFE OF SCHOOL CHILDREN
Abdolreza Jamilian, Alireza Darnahal, Sara Eslami, Bita Kiaee, Zinat Kamali, Letizia Perillo

Malocclusion in itself is neither a disease nor a life threatening condition; (1) nevertheless, the appearance of the mouth and a person’s smile plays a significant role in judgments regarding facial attraction. Thus, malocclusion has large physical, social, and psychological impact on the individual and society (2-4). Quality of life (QoL) has been defined by the World Health Organization as ‘‘people’s perception of their position in life in the context of the culture and value systems in which…(full text) | (read more)

  •  PERIODONTICS

SALIVARY AND SERUM CORTISOL IN PATIENTS WITH PERIODONTAL DISEASE AND ORAL LICHEN PLANUS
Daniela Miricescu, Alexandra Totan, Bogdan Calenic, Brânduşa Mocanu, Maria Greabu

Periodontitis, is a nonreversible infla-mmatory disease affecting the tooth supporting tissues. This chronic disease is caused by pathogenic microorganisms, three organisms in particular, Tanerella forsythensis, Porphyromonas gingivalis, and Treponema denticola, which have been directly associated with chronic periodontitis (1-3). Others factors can influence the appearance...(full text) | (read more)

  •  OCCLUSION

OCCLUSAL EQUILIBRATION BETWEEN OPTION AND CLINICAL REALITY
Sever Toma Popa, Sanda Mihaela Popescu, Marian-Vladimir Constantinescu

The mandibular neuromuscular complex has a strong adaptive capacity which allows functioning and protection of the masticatory system (Dawson, 1989, 2006). Deflective occlusal contacts will induce an irritable condition into the neuromuscular system which will be continuously reinforced with each closure through proprioceptive feedback…(full text) | (read more)
Keywords: occlusal adjustment, occlusal equilibration, dental interferences, centric relation, deflective contacts.


  •  ORAL IMPLANTOLOGY

IMPLANT THERAPY DECISION-MAKING FOR ENDODONTICALLY INVOLVED DENTITION
Alberto Monje, Fernando Suarez-Lopez del Amo, Carlos Andrés Garaicoa, Javier Nieto-Salas, Zhihui Tang, Jia-Hui Fu, Hom-Lay Wang

In dentistry, preserving natural dentition is the primary goal of every clinician. However, dental diseases such as caries and periodontitis may influence the fate of the involved tooth. When caries or periodontitis affect pulpal health, endodontic therapy is required, whereby diseased pulpal tissue is removed and the root canal system is sealed from within the tooth With current technology, 94 – 97% of endodontically treated teeth have remained functional over 3.5 to 8 years)...(full text)(read more)
Keyword: endosseous dental implant, endodontic treatment, root canal, evidence-based science, decision-making.


  •  GERODONTOLOGY

THE USE OF ROTARY INSTRUMENTS IN ENDODONTIC THERAPY OF OLDER DENTAL PATIENTS
Anastassios Retsas, Konstantinos Kalogeropoulos, Anastassia E. Kossioni

Older persons (aged over 65) (1), unlike in the recent past, can no longer be regarded as de facto edentulous. In many developed or even developing countries an increase in the retention rates of natural teeth in older persons has been recorded over the last decades (2-5) As the older population is continuously growing and many of them retain a significant number of natural … (full text) | (read more)

  •  ORAL REHABILITATION

REHABILITATION OF SEVERELY RESORBED MAXILLAE WITH ZYGOMATIC IMPLANTS:
A LITERATURE REVIEW
Giorgio Lombardo, Alessia Pardo, Anna Mascellaro, Giovanni Corrocher, Mauro Marincola,
Florin-Eugen Costantinescu, Pier Francesco Nocini

Aim: The clinical case highlights the outcome of a large periapical periodontitis using radiograph compared with Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). Summary: Periapical periodontitis is one of the most frequent reasons for endodontic treatments. The outcome of the endodontic procedures can be assessed either by radiographs or Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). The periapical radiolucency can increase, decrease or resolve over a period of time. CBCT, as compared to periapical (PA) radiographs shows higher accuracy in detecting the real extend of periapical lesions, facilitating the visualization of the outcome of the treatment...(full text) | (read more)
