NuSmile NeoMTA ® Launches in Canada

Breakthrough material is the only affordable MTA specifically optimized for pediatric dentistryHOUSTON, TEXAS, April 6, 2017 —NuSmile Ltd., the worldwide leader in pediatric esthetic restorative dentistry, announced today that its NuSmile NeoMTA is now available in Canada.NuSmile NeoMTA is the first and only affordable MTA specifically optimized for pediatric dentistry. The ideal treatment for pulpotomies, direct and indirect pulp capping, and apexification, it is quickly wash- out resistant, non-staining and has excellent handling properties. NuSmile NeoMTA is also bioactive and non-toxic, delivering peace of mind that formocresol may not provide.Cost-effective for pediatric dentistryHistorically, many dentists who would have preferred to use bioactive, non-toxic MTA rather than formocresol for pediatric pulp therapy found MTA to be cost-prohibitive. This is no longer an issue, as NuSmile NeoMTA ’s cost per gram is dramatically less than that of all other leading MTAs. Moreover, its unique dessicant-lined bulk packaging system allows dentists to use only what is needed for each pulp therapy, virtually eliminating waste.Truly bioactiveUnlike formocresol and resin/MTA blends, NuSmile NeoMTA is bioactive, hydrophilic, non-toxic and 100 percent biocompatible. MTA has been widely studied and is proven to trigger the formation of hydroxyapatite leading to dentinal bridging. NuSmile NeoMTA contains no resins, and thus delivers unmatched performance for pediatric dental ...

Authors: Singh S, Jayan B Abstract The aim of the study was to comparatively evaluate periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics (PAOO) and conventional fixed orthodontic mechanotherapy in the management of bimaxillary dentoalveolar protrusion in adults. The selected patients were grouped into two groups: Group I: PAOO procedure followed by orthodontic fixed mechanotherapy; Group II: orthodontic fixed mechanotherapy alone. The total treatment time, the quantum of root resorption, and the periodontal status of Group I and Group II were compared. Group I had a shorter treatment time and stable overall periodon...

Authors: Guarnieri R, Di Nardo D, Di Giorgio G, Miccoli G, Testarelli L Abstract The aim of the present randomized study was to radiographically evaluate the early marginal bone remodeling (EMBR) around one-stage implants with a collar surface that is laser-microtextured (LM), placed with the mirograp/interface at different levels relative to the bone crest, and to clinically evaluate the influence of keratinized tissue thickness (KTT) on outcomes. Thirty partially edentulous patients were selected to each receive at least two one-stage implants with LM collars placed at different depth levels in the mandible and m...

This article describes the combined use of the immediate dentoalveolar restoration (IDR) technique and the osseodensification implant site preparation method to improve immediate implant primary stability in periodontally compromised extraction sites. Positioning of soft and hard tissues was evaluated in two clinical cases in which the IDR technique and the osseodensification implant site preparation method were used to replace teeth at sites with severe alveolar bone loss. The results were analyzed by clinical assessment, photography, radiography, and computed tomography scans. Based on this preliminary study, the use of ...

The objective of this study was to compare patient-related outcomes of conventional protocols with computer-assisted implant planning and template-guided implant placement (CAIPP) protocols. Partially edentulous patients (N = 73) were assigned to either surgical planning based on two-dimensional radiographs and freehand implant placement (control; n = 26) or using three-dimensional computer-tomography data and implant placement using a tooth-supported surgical guide (test groups T1 [n = 24] and T2 [n = 23]). The two test groups differed from each other in digital data acquisition, software functionality, and the guide-manu...

Authors: Clem D, Gunsolley JC Abstract An effective treatment regime for peri-implantitis (P-I) should include disinfection and regeneration of peri-implant tissues. Twenty consecutive patients exhibiting 23 P-I implants with 84 deep (≥ 6 mm) defects were treated using an Er:YAG laser for implant surface decontamination, removal of defect granulomatous tissues, and grafting therapy for bony defect resolution. Probing pocket defects (PPD) ≥ 6 mm (deep probing depths) before surgery were reduced on average to approximately 3.5 mm at 12 months. Probing depths

In this retrospective study we investigated the long-term survival of autotransplanted premolars and molars with incompletely developed roots. The presence of the transplanted teeth and their outcome after autotransplantation was ascertained from clinical and radiographic evaluation by a maxillofacial surgeon or dentist. Kaplan Meier survival curves were estimated for the total population and for the two groups (premolars and molars).Fifty-one patients with 74 transplanted teeth were included, and the median duration of follow-up was 10 (range 1 –20) years.

ConclusionsAsymptomatic patients with unsuccessful percutaneous IVC filter retrieval seem to have low complications in midterm follow-up despite significant filter strut penetration. Without symptoms or other complications, such patients do not require referral for open surgical filter removal. Symptomatic patients can expect low morbidity and resolution of symptoms after percutaneous or open surgical removal. Further studies are needed to determine the cost-effectiveness of routinely removing asymptomatic IVC filters.

Publication date: Available online 21 June 2019Source: British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial SurgeryAuthor(s): J.A. Richards, M.J. Coyle, A.N. BeechAbstractIn recent years, coronectomy of impacted lower third molar teeth has become an increasingly popular alternative to removal. Traditionally, orthopantomograms of mandibular third molars have been used to indicate features that show that the tooth is in close proximity to, or in an intimate relation with, the inferior dental nerve. Some authors advocate coronectomy as opposed to surgical removal to reduce the risk of damage to the nerve. In our Trust during the last tw...

Discussion –-       Bronchial atresia usually is benign and asymptomatic and is incidental finding&clinical manifestations may range from recurrent pulmonary infections to mild wheezing and dyspnea. Bronchial atresia is a congenital abnormality resulting from focal interruption of a lobar, segmental, or subsegmental bronchus with associated peripheral mucus impaction (bronchocele, mucocele) and associated hyperinflation of the obstructed lung segment. The apicoposterior segmental bronchus of the left upper lobe is most common site to be involved, followed by segmental bronc...
