The role of interdental cleaning for oral health, general health and quality of life

April 17, 2020

Recent research shows that oral health is an essential prerequisite for people’s well-being and quality of life. In order to reach the global goals for oral health, the dental profession has a great responsibility to work with a preventive and health-promoting approach.

Endodontic follow-up in strongly curved root canals

April 11, 2020

The lasting success of any root canal therapy is always only apparent after long-term observation. In this article, based on a case study, the author demonstrates how a strongly curved canal in the posterior maxilla was prepared using pre-bendable nickel-titanium (NiTi) files, ensuring that a bacteria-proof seal is created that can last for as long as six years after the procedure. Here, the use of a reduced file sequence is just as important as the advantages of a flowable obturation material.

Dentine hypersensitivity experience using toothpaste with added bioglass: A clinical trial

April 8, 2020

In our clinical practices, dentine hypersensitivity (DH) has always been a challenge. Our best approach was to suggest at-home solutions such as sensitivity toothpaste or mouthrinse, but often there was no significant relief experienced by our patients. Last year, we met Richard Whatley, CEO of BioMin Technologies, who gave us some samples of BioMin F toothpaste for provision of relief from DH, and he explained the technology behind the effectiveness of this novel bioactive glass-based toothpaste. The bioglass particles contained in BioMin F toothpaste adhere to dental hard tissue and then slowly dissolve in saliva to release calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions, which precipitate on nucleation sites as fluorapatite crystals to occlude open dentinal tubules.

Shaping a Type V mandibular premolar with VDW.ROTATE

March 30, 2020

Many years ago already, the anatomy of root canals was described as showing variability and being of a complex nature. According to Vertucci, the mandibular first premolar has one canal at the apex in 74.0% of teeth, two canals at the apex in 25.5% and three canals at the apex in 0.5% of teeth.

Dynamic navigation—The future of minimally invasive endodontics

March 11, 2020

Dynamic real-time surgical navigation digital imaging, diagnostics and impressions, and the use of computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture (CAD/CAM) for prosthesis fabrication and lasers for soft and hard tissue augmentation are altering the developmental framework in dentistry. Nowhere is this more prevalent than in the foundational pillar of endodontics.

In this clinical case, Irfan Abas, an expert in the field of oral implantology and restorative dentistry, shows how excellent, lasting aesthetic results can be achieved with PANAVIA V5 cement (Kuraray Noritake Dental).

Digital face-bow transfer technique dentofacial analyser for dental aesthetics

February 14, 2020

Digital workflows are becoming more popular and are in demand among clinicians and laboratory technicians owing to the increased incorporation of CAD/CAM tools into the daily practice. Digitisation of records and data through cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans, intra-oral scans and model manipulation contributes to better communication processes for diagnostics, treatment planning, designing and manufacturing in dentistry.
