Fake news, fake science – the black side of the internet

Dear readers,
The internet is a fantastic world. It is an unbelievably deep source of information. On top of it, with the social media it gives to you access to basically millions of people. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? But as a critical mind, I must ask myself: is this beneficial only? I doubt it. Since information is neutral, it can be good or bad, or in other words, true, false or even worse: manipulated. I definitely know that social media are used to target people in order to make business with them […]

The key to improving the peer-review process and rewarding the reviewer’s activity: Publons registration

Dear readers,
As editor of the Stomatology Edu Journal, I attended the webinars organized by Clarivate Analytics. This is where I found out a series of extremely useful information in my editorial task. This is how I learned about Publons, a site which is part of Clarivate Analytics, and its importance in an editor’s activity. Therefore, to improve the peer-review process and to make the activity of the reviewers more visible, we have registered the Stomatology Edu Journal in Publons […]

  • DENTAL MATERIALS

Light transmission through resin composites
DOI: https://doi.org/10.25241/stomaeduj.2018.5(3).art.1
The optical properties of light cured resin-based composites (RBC) are essential material characteristics that are relevant for both the esthetical appearance of a restoration [1,2] and the quality of curing in depth [3]. The latter is fundamentally related to the translucency of the material and thus to the amount of light (photons) that is allowed to pass through the RBC during polymerization […]

The effect of ceramic light scattering on an inhomogeneous beam profile
DOI: https://doi.org/10.25241/stomaeduj.2018.5(3).art.2
Bonded ceramic restorations have been used in dentistry for many decades and the first application was the resin bonded ceramic veneer [1,2]. A few years later, resin bonded ceramic inlays were tested first in vitro [3] and later in vivo [4]. In order to have enough time for the cementation process, clinicians prefer light-cure resin-based composites (RBC), which usually have a lower […]

Effect of whitening on the optical and mechanical properties of aged resin composites
DOI: https://doi.org/10.25241/stomaeduj.2018.5(3).art.3
Dental bleaching is a conservative alternative with high success rates for treating discoloured teeth [1]. Tooth bleaching is a chemical process, which is performed with peroxide, chlorine, or chloride based-products. Among the products, hydrogen peroxide is the most commonly used agent. The bleaching process relies on the decomposition of peroxide into free radicals, while unstable […]

Salivary matrix metalloproteinases activity levels in autoimmune diseases
DOI: https://doi.org/10.25241/stomaeduj.2018.5(3).art.4
Over the past decades, saliva has become a hot topic in medical research related to discovering alternative diagnostic methods. Whole saliva is a complex fusion of the fluid produced by major and minor salivary glands with gingival crevicular fluid, oral desquamated cells, bacteria, as well as with food remains […]

Efficacy of a dental extraction policy designed to prevent osteoradionecrosis: a retrospective study in 100 oral cancer patients treated with intensity-modulated radiotherapy
DOI: https://doi.org/10.25241/stomaeduj.2018.5(3).art.5 
Osteoradionecrosis (ORN) of the jaw is a serious complication that can arise following radiotherapy for head and neck cancers [1]. ORN is defined as a slow-healing radiation-induced ischemic necrosis of the bone, associated with varying degrees of soft tissue necrosis in the absence of local […]

The efficacy of bone scraper for bone window osteotomy in the course of sinus augmentation
DOI: https://doi.org/10.25241/stomaeduj.2018.5(3).art.6
Implant dentistry in the posterior atrophic maxilla still poses a challenge, due to lack of alveolar bone height. Sinus augmentation procedures are done to generate sufficient bone to place an implant. Bone graft may be autogeneous bone and/or xenografts and/or alloplasts to fill in the volume created. For the autogenous donor site, the iliac crest or the mandibular symphyseal area are often used […]

Resin infiltration as a minimal invasive esthetic treatment for a mild fluorosis case
DOI: https://doi.org/10.25241/stomaeduj.2018.5(3).art.7
Enamel pathologies like enamel hypoplasia, amelogenesis imperfecta and dental fluorosis occur as a result of disturbances during the last stage of sound enamel formation. In the maturation stage; the ameloblasts lose their protein secretory properties due to increased growth activity [1]. Dental fluorosis is caused by excessive intake of fluoride in drinking water during enamel formation […]
