The cost of publishing in today’s scientific e-world

Dear readers,
Dear authors,
According to Stephen Buranyi, scientific writer with the Guardian, scientific publishing is a vast business, with revenues varying between the music recording and film industries, but far more profitable.  herefore, it is not difficult to understand why the scientific publishing business is so profitable. After all, researchers need publications to advance in their career. The majority of scientific journals offer article submissions using online manuscript manager platforms, which resulted in a transition from editorial staff to contributing authors to complete the submission process and to comply with a whole series of journal guidelines.[…]

  • COMMUNITY DENTISTRY

Effectiveness of school-based fluoride mouth rinsing program in schoolchildren from Kandy District, Sri Lanka

DOI: https://doi.org/10.25241/stomaeduj.2020.7(1).art.1

Dental caries is still epidemic and a significant public health problem in developing countries. No research on a fluoride mouth rinsing program has been conducted in Sri Lanka yet. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a supervised school-based 0.2% sodium fluoride mouth rinsing program among 6 year-old Sri Lanka school children […]

  • PREVENTIVE DENTISTRY

Arrest of early carious lesions after professional application of different fluoride agents

DOI: https://doi.org/10.25241/stomaeduj.2020.7(1).art.2

The conventional treatment of caries lesions has historically focused on the mechanical treatment of the lesion. Such an approach [17] disregards the ecological imbalances in the oral cavity, involves restorations that require replacement and which become larger with time, and can result in tooth loss. Successive investigations have reported findings that support a paradigm shift in the treatment of caries. […]

  • DENTAL RADIOLOGY

Volume, asymmetry and reciprocal relationships between paranasal sinuses: a 3D segmentation study on head CT-scans

DOI: https://doi.org/10.25241/stomaeduj.2020.7(1).art.3

The paranasal sinuses are air-filled anatomical structures inside the skull and facial bones forming a complex interconnected system communicating with the nasal cavities through an ostium [1,2]. There are four paired paranasal sinuses: the maxillary, frontal and sphenoid sinuses, and the ethmoid cells, with great inter- and intra-individual variations. […]

  • OCCLUSION AND TMJ

Analysis of stress generated in the enamel of an upper first premolar: a finite element study

DOI: https://doi.org/10.25241/stomaeduj.2020.7(1).art.4

Non-carious cervical lesions involve the loss of hard dental tissues in the cervical areas of the teeth, without carious activity [1,2]. These lesions are important because, in a first stage, they can produce gingival retractions associated with teeth sensitivity [3], and in an advanced stage they can determine endodontic pathology and even the fracture of the teeth involved [4][…]

  • ORAL IMPLANTOLOGY

Immediate/early radiological findings following transcrestal sinus augmentation using a minimally invasive implant device

DOI: https://doi.org/10.25241/stomaeduj.2020.7(1).art.5

Augmentation of the maxillary sinus floor followed by simultaneous or delayed placement of dental implants is a well-established technique for implant-supported rehabilitation of the partially or completely edentulous patient [1-15]. Few studies documented a patient’s perception of recovery after sinus-floor augmentation [16]. The average patient should expect recovery within 5 days. […]

  • ANESTHESIOLOGY

Unclarities about articaine: efficacy and the risk of paresthesia

DOI: https://doi.org/10.25241/stomaeduj.2020.7(1).art.6

Articaine is an amide dental local anesthetic, synthesized in 1969 in Germany. It was specifically developed for dental use and got its approval for clinical use in countries all over the world in the years to follow. It became increasingly popular and is now the second most used local anesthetic in dentistry. Annually, approximately 600,000,000 cartridges are manufactured [1][…]

 

  • ORTHODONTICS

Stability of skeletal class III malocclusion after orthognathic surgery and orthodontic treatment: a systematic review and meta-analysis

DOI: https://doi.org/10.25241/stomaeduj.2020.7(1).art.7

Moderate to severe skeletal class III patients often require a combined orthodontic and surgical approach for treatment. It has been reported that skeletal class III malocclusion is the most frequent deformity corrected by combined orthognathic surgery and orthodontic treatment [1-4]. However, bimaxillary surgery has gradually become more popular to correct class III malocclusion [5-7] […]

The gold standard for detecting buried dental implants – RomiPointerTM Implant Detector of Romidan Ltd., Israel

The device detecting dental implants is a precise instrument that uses advanced technology, with an ergonomic design, easy to use and accessible, offering a non-invasive alternative to the exploratory mucoperiosteal flaps and retroalveolar radiographs, useful to qualified dental staff, implantologists and general practitioners working with dental implants. The dental implant detector acts as a vibration generator, the LC electronic Colpitts type of feedback system that uses the metal resonant circuit to verify the location of the implants[…]
