Therapeutic options to manage bleeding in a dentist ’s office
Therapeutic options to manage bleeding in a dentist’s office Swiss Dent J. 2018 Jun 18;128(6):498-499 Authors: Rostetter C, Finkenstädt T, Rücker M, Lübbers HT Abstract This manuscript provides an overview of therapeutic options for the problem of bleeding in a dentist’s office. Bleeding after tooth extraction is a very common finding in dental medicine and persistent blood in the mouth is obviously uncomfortable and sometimes terrifying for the patient. Most bleedings can be stopped simply with compression, in some cases a homeostatic therapy is necessary. For local compress...

Hydrophilic implant surfaces – a clinical and scientific update (in German)
Hydrophilic implant surfaces – a clinical and scientific update (in German) Swiss Dent J. 2018 Jan 15;128(1):33-39 Authors: Bosch G, Stübinger S, Rücker M, Stadlinger B Abstract The modification of the implant surface influences implant osseointegration. A physico-chemical means to modify implant surfaces is the creation of hydrophilic surfaces. The aim is an accelerated osseointegration for earlier implant loading and possibly the increase of bone quantity and quality. This review gives an update on the current scientific knowledge on hydrophilic implant surfaces. In vitro, hydrophilic...

Application and evaluation of coronectomy in Switzerland
Authors: Crameri M, Kuttenberger JJ Abstract Coronectomy is the intentional partial removal of a tooth. Thereby the crown of the tooth is removed and the roots are left in place. Compared to the complete operative removal of a wisdom tooth, the incidence of inferior alveolar nerve injury (IANI) is lower. The aim of this study is a survey on the use and acceptance of wisdom tooth coronectomy in Switzerland. An anonymous questionnaire was sent to 266 dentists specialized in oral surgery or maxillofacial surgeons; 58.3% of the questionnaires were returned and could be assessed. The statistical analysis was performed u...

Assessment of treatment field isolation during scaling, root planing and rinsing
Conclusion: RD and IL isolated the working field to a similar degree. Since RD represents the highest isolation standard currently available, the use of IL must also be considered sufficient to prevent noxious amounts of antiseptic rinses from leaking into the mouth.

The Face – A Vascular Perspective. A literature review
The Face – A Vascular Perspective. A literature review Swiss Dent J. 2018 May 14;128(5):382-392 Authors: von Arx TVA, Tamura K, Yukiya O, Lozanoff S Abstract Vascular supply is key for maintenance of healthy tissue conditions but also with regard to healing following trauma or therapeutic interventions. The face is probably the most exposed part of the body and any changes of vascularity are readily visible (skin blanching, ecchymosis, hematoma, edema). With regard to the arterial supply, all vessels reaching the facial skin originate from the bilateral common carotid arteries. The ophthal­mi...

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...

Patients with platelet aggregation inhibitors in the dental office
Authors: Yildirim A, Lübbers HT, Yildirim A Abstract Antiplatelet agents with the active ingredients acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin® protect 100), clopidogrel (Iscover®, Plavix®), prasugrel (Efient®) or ticagrelor (Brilique™) prevent the clumping of platelets and thus the formation of small clots at constrictions of the coronary arteries or on the metal struts of stents in the coronary artery or in bypass grafts. Large-scale studies have shown that taken regularly, these drugs can extend life and help prevent heart attacks. Especially in patients with newly implanted stents, the combinatio...

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...

Depending on the size of the odds ratios (ORs) and the lower limit of the 95% confidence intervals indicated by the reports, four risk categories were differentiated. Among others, emotional stress, consumption of tobacco, alcohol, or coffee, sleep apnea syndrome, and anxiety disorders were recognized as important factors among adults.

Its consequences such as early pain experience may affect the immediate and long-term quality of life of the child. In very young and uncooperative children the therapy of ECC is often viable only under general anesthesia. After treatment these affected children have a higher risk for future caries either soon thereafter, or later in life.

Various treatment options (leaving the fractured instrument with or without apicoectomy, bypassing or removing the fragment) and removing techniques (using ultrasonics, hollow tubes or bypassing and removing with debriders) are discussed. The clinical prognosis for teeth with fractured instruments is not necessarily compromised if appropriate further treatment is undertaken. Indeed, it is the timing of instrument fracture...
