Spontaneous reeruption after intrusive luxation of the permanent incisors by incomplete root formation. Two case reports (in German)
This report is aiming to illustrate, by two cases, that traumatic intruded teeth with incomplete root formation, treated without active repositioning (waiting for spontaneous reeruption), seem to be associated with the lowest risk of healing complications. Therefore, the decision of the treatment procedure should be based mainly on the stage of root development and only secondarily on the degree of intrusion.

Influence of different loupe systems and their light source on the vision in endodontics
Authors: Perrin P, Neuhaus KW, Eichenberger M, Lussi A Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of Galilean and Keplerian loupes in the endodontic lumen with and without integrated light. Although the use of an operating microscope is widely recommended in endodontics it is uncertain whether an adequate loupe system with coaxial light source might replace the microscope for some endodontic work. Twenty-four dentists (age 27–64 years) underwent a miniaturized visual test inside the endodontic lumen of a natural molar: at the canal entrance, 5 mm inside the canal, and at the apex. The toot...

Extraoral anatomy in CBCT – a literature review. Part 1: Nasoethmoidal region Swiss Dent J. 2019 Aug 08;129(10) Authors: von Arx T, Lozanoff S, Bornstein MM Abstract Cone beam computed tomography has become a widely used imaging technique for dental indications. Depending on the selected size of the field of view, anatomical structures outside the dentomaxillary complex become visible. As a consequence, the clinician must be able to interpret also those anatomical regions. In this article, the anatomy of the nasoethmoidal region is presented based on a literature review. The nose is characterized...

Contact allergies to dental materials
This study included 86 subjects (83.7% women and 16.3% men) with oral symptoms of a contact allergy. The average age was 63 years (24–86). The most common allergies were to metals, of which nickel and cobalt were the most common allergens. Furthermore, many allergies were indicated to ingredients of cosmetics and composites. Allergies to components in methacrylate-containing denture resins came in at rank 5. 52.4% of the patients showed mucosal changes. Contact stomatitis (54.5%) and an oral lichenoid lesion (20.5%) were most frequently diagnosed. 86% of the patients reported subjective complaints. Pain and burning s...

The secrets of isolation in the cervical area
Authors: Gerdolle D, Browet S Abstract It is often presumed that, since its introduction in 1864, the use of rubber dam in multiple dental procedures has increased. However, its use is not as widespread as one might expect. There still seem to be many obstacles that prevent clinicians from adopting it as a standard of care. Furthermore, it appears very difficult to scientifically prove the impact of its use on the final outcome of a given procedure. The fundamental idea of isolating the operatory field and preventing contamination is simple; the practical execution of it is more demanding. In this article, the auth...

This study assessed the frequency and major reason of dental visits and personal oral hygiene measures in Switzerland, and temporal trends in visit frequency. The number of dental visits in the previous twelve months, the reason for these visits, and the prevalence of oral hygiene measures were quantified from weighted data from the 2012 Swiss Health Survey. The frequency of dental visits in 2012 was compared with previous surveys (1992–2007). Almost two thirds of subjects reported visiting a dentist and almost half had visited a dental hygienist in the previous twelve months. Voluntary (33%) or recall check-ups (25%...

The dentigerous cyst: two different treatment options illustrated by two cases
Authors: Bassetti MA, Kuttenberger J, Novak J, Bassetti RG Abstract The dentigerous cyst is the second most frequent odontogenic cyst after the radicular one. Typically, dentigerous cysts are asymptomatic and are commonly diagnosed incidentally. Due to the slow, expansive growth dentigerous cysts have the potential for dislocation of adjacent structures (neighbouring teeth, canalis retromolaris), root resorptions and in an extreme case could cause jaw fractures. A histological examination represents a sine qua non, because other more alarming pathologies (odontogenic keratocyst, unicystic ameloblastoma, myxoma, pri...

The main indications in stomatology are pain alleviation and prevention of recurences in aphthae and cold sores (minor aphthae, herpes simplex), ablation of benign and irritant tissue excess (stimulus fibroma), lip and tongue band correction and soft tissue hemostasis. One great advantage is the minimal bleeding in the surgical field, which allows for optimal visibility. In addition, the CO2 laser offers high patient comfort since no primary wou...

Muscular tension due to stress affects these burdens and leads to chronic pain. Using a stress model, it was explained how the individual processing of stress leads to varying negative effects on oral health and jaw function. Through a short survey, it is possible for the dentist to assess the extent of the chronic pain and the associated psychosocial burdens, and, when necessary, encourage the patient to undertake ...

Regenerative endodontics after front tooth trauma. A case report
Authors: Bassetti R, Kuttenberger J, Bassetti M Abstract In the context of tooth trauma, mostly the maxillary central front teeth are involved, whereby their roots are in some cases still in the developing stage (immature). Depending on the type of trauma, a necrosis of the pulp is the consequence or at least foreseeable. In order to preserve such a tooth, an endodontic therapy is inevitable. The disadvantage of conventional endodontic therapy methods of immature teeth (apexification, apexogenesis) is the root growth stop. Alternatively, the regeneration/revascularisation of the dental pulp (RP) was suggested, that...

An analysis of effective dose optimization and its impact on image quality and diagnostic efficacy relating to dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT)
Authors: McGuigan MB, Duncan HF, Horner K Abstract The potential of high resolution, three-dimensional (3D) images which overcome limitations such as superimposition and anatomical noise of two-dimensional (2D) conventional imaging, has made cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) an increasingly popular imaging modality in many dental applications. It is in light of the increasingly prevalent use of CBCT, particularly in a primary dental care setting, that the goal of this review is to investigate what evidence-based guidance is available to the clinician to justify and reduce radiation risk of this higher dose imagi...
