The efficacy of probiotics in the management of intra-oral halitosis: a systematic review
ConclusionsThe available evidence suggests no convincing benefit for the use of probiotics in the management of halitosis. Standardised protocols on recruitment of halitosis subjects and organoleptic measurements are required for future studies on probiotics as an intervention.Clinical relevanceThe lack of well-conducted studies with a low risk of bias precludes any clinical recommendation. Further research is needed to verify the efficacy of probiotics in the management of intra-oral halitosis. (Source: Dental Technology Blog)

On the biocompatibility of endodontic sealers
This study aimed to investigate the effects of different root canal sealers and their eluates on human alveolar osteoblasts in terms of cell proliferation, adhesion, morphology and gene expression in vitro. Five endodontic sealers (AH Plus ®, Apexit®, Tubli-Seal®, Real Seal SE®, EndoRez®) and one gutta-percha obturation material (BeeFill®) were tested. Human alveolar osteoblasts derived from 3 different donors following incubation with sealer eluates after 24 h and 72 h were investigated by means of qPCR (gene expression). Morph ological reactions of the alveolar osteoblasts were measured by culturing the cells for 3...

Root canal narrowing patterns of mandibular first premolars on panoramic radiographs according to the number of root canals diagnosed on cone beam computed tomographic images
This study aimed to investigate the characteristic radiographic findings of mandibular first premolars possessing multiple root canals and determine the diagnostic accuracy using panoramic radiography. Four radiologists evaluated 347 mandibular first premolars in 186 patients who underwent panoramic radiography and dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). Two radiologists confirmed the existence of single or multiple root canals using CBCT. The remaining two radiologists evaluated the imaging findings of the root canal morphology and classified them into two patterns: gradual narrowing and sudden narrowing. In the case...
