Individual biosafety barrier in dentistry: an alternative in times of covid-19. Preliminary study
ABSTRACT The return to dental practice in pandemic times is a new challenge due to the generation and dispersion of droplets and aerosols that may contain the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the etiological agent of covid-19. In the last months some droplet and aerosol containment strategies have been circulating on the internet, however, until now there is no evidence in the literature to prove the effectiveness of such barriers. Thus, using a microbial dispersion model with the fast handpiece, the aim of this preliminary study was to compare the dispersion caused by the the dental drill (DD) alone or in association with an individual ...

Dental care for children with Congenital Zika Syndrome
ABSTRACT There was a large increase in the number of newborns with microcephaly in Brazil between 2015 and 2017, mainly in the Northeast. This increase was associated with intrauterine Zika virus infection, which causes a congenital syndrome characterized by neurological, musculoskeletal, and sensory abnormalities. Despite the great worldwide repercussion, few studies about oral conditions in children with the syndrome have been published. This work aims to propose a guide for the dental care of these individuals on the basis of a literature review. Children with congenital Zika syndrome have a number of systemic comorbidi...

ABSTRACT The replacement of missing teeth by implant retained prostheses is a predictable form of rehabilitation in the population as a whole. Due to thesimilarity between periodontal disease and peri-implantitis, the hypothesis is inferred that patients with a history of periodontal disease would be more susceptible to peri-implantitis. This concept has been discussed and supported by new scientific evidence. The purpose of this review was to evaluate whether there is any relationship between periodontitis and greater peri-implant bone loss in periodontally compromised patients.
