Cling film as storage medium for avulsed teeth. An in vitro pilot study
Authors: Zeissler-Lajtman A, Connert T, Kühl S, Filippi A Abstract The long-term prognosis of avulsed teeth primarily depends on the behavior at the scene of the accident. Lay people are not able to perform an immediate replantation. Therefore, particular significance belongs to the cellphysiologic storage of avulsed teeth. The aim of this pilot study was to evaluate whether cling film facilitates the survival of periodontal ligament cells in vitro. For this purpose, healthy human third molars were used. They were cut into root slices, which were stored in one of five test media: SOS Zahnbox ® , UHT milk (...

Abrasion of eroded and sound enamel by a dentifrice containing diamond abrasive particles
Authors: Wegehaupt FJ, Hoegger VGM, Attin T Abstract Eroded enamel is more susceptible to abrasive wear than sound enamel. New toothpastes utilizing diamond particles as abrasives have been developed. The present study investigated the abrasive wear of eroded enamel by three commercially available toothpastes (one containing diamond particles) and compared it to the respective wear of sound enamel caused by these toothpastes. Seventy-two bovine enamel samples were randomly allocated to six groups (S1–S3 and E1–E3; n=12). Samples were submitted to an abrasive (S1–S3) or erosion plus abrasion (E1&nd...

Risk indicators of early childhood caries (ECC) in children with high treatment needs.
Authors: Kraljevic I, Filippi C, Filippi A Abstract Early childhood caries (ECC) represents a major health and economic problem worldwide. 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. The aim of the present study was to determine risk indicators and their correlation among children with high caries prevalence and high treat...

Better clinical outcomes, less need for periodontal surgery and limited systemic complications are arguments to justify such an approach. However, combination therapy with systemic antibiotic treatment is still a matter of debate due to emerging antibiotic resistance patterns.

The objective of the present study was the histologic analysis of VRFs in extracted, endodontically treated premolars and molars. In addition, clinical and radiographic findings of these VRF-affected teeth were retrospectively evaluated. Thirty extracted teeth with a clinically diagnosed VRF were embedded in methylmethacrylate. Serial ground sections (perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the root) were stained with toluidine blue and basic fuchsin. The specimens were photographed and assessed with regard to the vertical and horizontal extent as well as to the course of the VRF. Most VRFs ran from the cervical to the a...

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...
