DENTISTRY – FROM THE CRAFTSMANSHIP OF THE CRAFTSMEN TO PRECISE MACHINE TECHNOLOGY
Marian Vladimir Constantinescu
Recently, archeologists have reported the earliest evidence of a dental procedure practiced on dental caries dating back to the Late Upper Paleolithic (over 14,000 years BC) – an occlusal carious cavity on a lower molar, partially cleaned with flint tools, practiced on a modern human specimen…(full text)

  • DENTAL MATERIALS

REINFORCEMENT OF POLYMETHYLMETHACRYLATE (PMMA) RESIN WITH PERFORATED METAL PLATES
Jean-François Roulet, Nader Abdulhameed, Chiayi Shen
The shift from vulcanized rubber to polymethacrylate resin (PMMA) has dramatically improved the esthetics of removable dental prostheses. After its invention1 it took several years until it became usable for manufacturing individually formed pieces by reducing its polymerization shrinkage of 21 % to a few percentages by using spherical pre polymerized particles...

  • DENTAL CARIES

A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW OF VARIOUS LASER-BASED SYSTEMS USED IN EARLY DETECTION OF DENTAL CARIES
Fawad Javed, Georgios E. Romanos

Dental caries (or caries) represent a chronic disease of the mineralized tissues of teeth, namely (enamel, dentin and cementum) caused by the action of cariogenic bacteria on fermentable carbohydrates leading to the demineralization of these mineral portions and (if left untreated) disintegration of their organic matrix…(full text) | (read more)

  •  ORTHODONTICS

CANINE IMPACTION: HOW EFFECTIVEIS EARLY PREVENTION?AN AUDIT OF TREATED CASES
John Mew, Michael Mew

Patients whose canines fail to erupt areat risk for a range of problems. Not only may dental aesthetics be prejudiced but correction can prove both expensive and traumatic... (full text) | (read more)

  •  ORAL REHABILITATION

BASICS OF FUNCTIONAL CLINICAL AND INSTRUMENTAL DIAGNOSTICS AND PRETREATMENT BEFORE FINAL ORAL REHABILITATION
Georg B. Meyer, Theresia Asselmeyer, Olaf Bernhardt

In a healthy masticatory system, the interplay of cusps and fissures of antagonistic teeth is characterized by the fact that all movements, starting from an obvious habitual occlusion, can be performed without disturbances...(full text) | (read more)

  •  OROFACIAL PAIN

OBLITERATING FORAMINA FOLLOWING PERIPHERAL NEURECTOMIES CAN PROLONG REMISSION OF NEURALGIA UP TO 10 YEARS
Wei Cheong Ngeow

Trigeminal neuralgia is defined as “sudden severe brief stabbing recurrent pains in the distribution of one or more branches of the fifth cranial nerve”.1 One of its characteristics is a severely painful condition that afflicts the elderly, particularly females and the diagnosis…(full text) | (read more)

  •  GERODONTOLOGY

A MINIMALISTIC MANAGEMENT APPROACH FOR THE COMPROMISED ELDERLY PATIENT
Alexandre Mersel, Hadar Better

In the last decade we have witnessed a constant increase in the elderly population. The total number of people over 60 is expected to double from 1% to 2% which means from 605 to 2 billion between 2000 – 2050 (WHO 2013 a).…(full text) | (read more)

  •  ORAL IMPLANTOLOGY

ZYGOMATIC IMPLANT COMPLICATED WITH RECURRENT ORO-ANTRAL COMMUNICATION
Constantinus Politis, Luc Vrielinck, Titiaan Dormaar, Luc Daems, Paul Legrand, Lloyd Nanhekhan, Joseph Schoenaers

Zygomatic implants have been used as an alternative to bone grafts in the treatment of very atrophic maxillae or as a salvage solution after failed bone grafts in atrophic maxillae.1 The surgical procedure to insert zygomatic implants is very demanding…(full text)(read more)
