Comparing different bar materials for mandibular implant-supported overdenture: Finite-element analysis
Conclusions: Cortical and spongy bones are not sensitive to the bar material. Increasing bar material stiffness increases Von Mises stresses in the bar itself and reduces its total deformation, in what is called overconstrained system. (Source: Indian Journal of Dental Research)

Effect of different exposure times on caries detection and pixel value in a wireless digital system
Conclusion: The performance of the exposure times from 0.06 s to 0.25 s was satisfactory for proximal caries detection, and 0.25 s is the best as indicated for this finality. Clinical Relevance: Considering that a reduction of exposure time represents a reduction of patient exposure dose, and this reduction cannot neglect image quality, the behavior of any digital system must be carefully evaluated.

Innovative method & #8220;DV-PIMS & #8221; technique and dental implant design for grafting injectable platelet-rich fibrin around the dental implant & #8211; Goat jaw cadaver study
Conclusion: There are various techniques of using PRF. These techniques need skill and practice to use PRF. This (DV-PIMS) method aims to explain new implant design that disperses an i-PRF solution from inside out. The screw section of the new implant is made of a reservoir running vertically down inside. That reservoir is filled with (injectable) PRF, and then a cover screw is placed. The solution will begin to slowly diffuse out, through the vents in implant, keeping biofilms from forming or avoiding at the screw–bone interface and accelerate healing process.
