WHY PEER REVIEW?
Jean-Francois Roulet

Dear Readers,
As dentists we are part of the medical community. We are the experts in everything related to the health of the oral cavity and its surroundings.

PLEA FOR A HOLISTIC APPROACH IN STOMATOLOGY
Vasile Astărăstoae

The ethos of the medical profession derives from its tradition. Since the first medical acts, the approach of this profession was anthropological and holistic. This is why, during its evolution, medicine has evolved combining two tendencies: asklepian (knowing) and the samaritan one (feeling compassion for your patient). In the contemporary age, new forces… (full text) | (read more)

The new trend is that the elderly will have more retained teeth and that their expectation will…(full text) | (read more)


  • CARIOLOGY

REMINERALISATION OF AFFECTED DENTINE BY DIFFERENT BIOACTIVE MATERIALS IN THE STEPWISE EXCAVATION TECHNIQUE
Sorin Andrian, Gianina Iovan, Simona Stoleriu, Claudiu Topoliceanu, Andrei Georgescu

Acute dental caries, characterized by deep demineralization and high risk of pulp involvement,require a progressive therapeutical approach more adequate in maintaining pulp vitality. The therapy of acute dental caries, using the „stepwise” excavation technique, requires the monitoring of pulp-dentine response to the materials applied for… (full text) | (read more)
Keywords: acute dental caries, „stepwise” excavation technique, CarisolvTM, remineralisation, dentine.


  • ORTHODONTICS

NONEXTRACTION METHODS FOR CREATING SPACE IN ORTHODONTIC THERAPY
Mariana Păcurar, Ana Maria Jurcă, Doru Roman, Eugen Bud, Irina Nicoleta Zetu, Ioana Vâţă

Modern orthodontic therapy attempts, whenever possible, a nonextraction treatment, with convenient means for the patient, which would allow current activities and it would not affect facial harmony (1). In this context, molar distalization is an useful treatment method in obtaining arcade space, especially in anomalies Angle Class II/2 with accentuated…(full text) | (read more)

SALIVARY AND SERUM ENZYMES AS DIAGNOSTIC BIOMARKERS IN PATIENTS WITH PERIODONTAL DISEASE
Daniela Miricescu, Alexandra Totan, Bogdan Calenic, Brânduşa Mocanu, Maria Greabu

Whole saliva is secreted by three major and many minor salivary glands. It contains locally produced biomolecules as well as other molecules derived from the systemic circulation. Whole saliva can contain proteins, serum products, electrolytes, immune and epithelial cells and gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) (1,2). Periodontal disease is one of the most…(full text)(read more)

The etiology of bruxism is controversial, many factors being implicated, like occlusion, psycho-behavioral factors, and genetic factors. The aim of the present review was to systematically assess the literature and identify main theories regarding the etiology of bruxism. Data extraction was carried out according to the standard Cochrane systematic review methodology. The following databases were…(full text) | (read more)

  • OROFACIAL PAIN

HEADACHE – AN INTERDISCIPLINARY PROBLEM-ASPECTS OF DENTAL FUNCTIONAL DIAGNOSTICS AND THERAPY
Georg B. Meyer,Olaf Bernhardt, Arnd Küppers

The reasons for acute and chronic craniofacial pain can be extremely diverse. An exact identification of causes is often impossible without close cooperation between various medical disciplines, and monocausal treatment approaches to pain relief are often unsatisfactory (1,2,3). Understanding these multilayered symptoms is…

  •  OVERDENTURE

FUNCTIONAL EVALUATION OF IMPLANT SUPPORTED PROSTHESES
Gianluca Martino Tartaglia, Chiarella Sforza

Today, several clinical tools can support the daily clinical practice in dentistry with a quantitative support helpful for diagnosis, measuring the effects of therapy, and timely detection of the possible failures or relapses. Surface electromyography (EMG) is able to support conventional morphological evaluations with an accurate and objective quantification of functional activity and it is currently considered…(full text(read more)

FACTORS AFFECTING RECENT DENTAL SERVICES UTILIZATION BY AN URBAN OLDER POPULATION IN ATHENS
Vasilia Petraki, Philippos Thomopoulos, Anastassia E. Kossioni

During the last decades the number of older people has continuously grown, as a result of increased life expectancy and low fertility rates (1). By the year 2050, the persons aged 60 years and over will be almost two billion world-wide and the large majority of them (80%) will live in developing countries (2). The oldest old age group (80 years and over) is the most rapidly increasing proportion of the population…(full text(read more)
