Allergen-getriggerte lichenoide Mundschleimhautl äsionen: Diagnose und Therapie anhand eines Fallbeispiels.
Allergen-getriggerte lichenoide Mundschleimhautläsionen: Diagnose und Therapie anhand eines Fallbeispiels. Swiss Dent J. 2017;127(1):27-37 Authors: Olms C, Remmerbach TW Abstract Allergen-triggered lichenoid oral mucosa lesions may occur both in oral lichen planus (OLP) and oral lichenoid lesions (OLL). Clinically, OLP and OLL are difficult to distinguish from each other. An OLP should be checked by histological examination. Therefore all patients with OLP should be included into a close control interval due to the the potential malignant transformation, whereas in the literature a higher risk of ...

Swiss Dent J. 2016;126(12):1147-1159 Authors: Wolf D, Renton T Abstract Extractions of mandibular third molars are a common procedure in dental practice. In cases where a close anatomical relationship of the root and the inferior alveolar nerve exists, the risk of transient or even permanent nerve injury increases. Nerve injury is difficult to manage and symptoms may cause severe patient discomfort, i.e. lifelong dysesthesia, i.e. painful sensation of the lower li...

Treatment options for permanent teeth with deep caries.
Authors: Marending M, Attin T, Zehnder M Abstract The goal of this narrative review was to summarize and compare treatment options for permanent teeth carious lesions that are radiographically close to the pulp chamber. Thanks to adhesive restorative materials, minimally invasive approaches are possible. In this context, the old question arises as to whether caries must be excavated completely, i.e., down to hard dentin, or whether it could be advantageous to leave some soft dentin, or even merely seal the whole lesion. To answer this question, the microbiological aspects of the lesion must be considered, along wit...

The effect of a chewing-intensive, high-fiber diet on oral halitosis: A clinical controlled study.
Authors: Wälti A, Lussi A, Seemann R Abstract Tongue coating is the most common cause of oral halitosis and eating results in its reduction. Only limited data are available on the effect of different food items on tongue coating and halitosis. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the effect of a single consumption of food with high fiber content versus low fiber content on halitosis parameters. Based on a randomized clinical cross-over study, 20 subjects were examined over a period of 2.5 hours after consumption of a high-fiber and a low-fiber meal. The determination of volatile sulfur compounds...

Whereas cell toxicity of H3PO4 has been sufficiently investigated, little is known about the toxicity of concentrated SnCl2. The present study determined the in vitro toxicity of SnCl2, H3PO4, the primer of a self-etching adhesive (Clearfil SE) and combinations thereof at three concentrations (0.01%–0.3%) in a L929 fibroblast bioassay.

Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) – eine Erfolgsgeschichte in der apikalen Chirurgie.
The objective of apical surgery is to retain teeth with persistent apical pathosis following orthograde root canal treatment if endodontic non-surgical revision is difficult or associated with risks, or is even declined by the patient. Since the most frequent cause of recurrent apical disease is bacterial reinfection from the (remaining) root canal system, the bacteria-tight root-end filling is the most important step in apical surgery. In the early 1990s, mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) was developed at the Loma Linda University in California/USA. Preclinical studies clearly showed that MTA has a high sealing capability,...

With the introduction of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in dental medicine, this three-dimensional (3D) imaging technique is now more and more used for the exact localisation of supernumerary teeth and...

Early Childhood Caries and Caries Experience in Permanent Dentition: A 15-year Cohort Study.

Data from a number of regional studies suggest a current prevalence between 10% and 15%. However, there is a dearth of longitudinal observational study data on the risk of caries in the permanent teeth of persons who as children had to undergo comprehensive treatment for caries under intubation general anesthesia.
