Dental and General Trauma in Team Handball.
Authors: Petrović M, Kühl S, Šlaj M, Connert T, Filippi A Abstract Handball has developed into a much faster and high-impact sport over the past few years because of rule changes. Fast sports with close body contact are especially prone to orofacial trauma. Handball belongs to a category of sports with medium risk for dental trauma. Even so, there is only little literature on this subject. The aim of this study was to examine the prevalence and the type of injuries, especially the occurrence of orofacial trauma, habits of wearing mouthguards, as well as degree of familiarity with the tooth rescue box. ...

Authors: Tauböck TT, Attin T Abstract Bulk-fill resin composites represent an innovative class of dental composite materials, developed to simplify and expedite the restoration process. They can be adequately photopolymerized up to 4–5mm composite thickness and therefore permit a more economical restorative approach as compared to conventional resin composites. The current paper summarizes the most important facts on bulk-fill composite materials and provides recommendations for the successful use of these materials in daily practice based on upto-date in vitro and in vivo research.

L929 fibroblast bioassay on the in vitro toxicity of SnCl2, H3PO4, Clearfil SE primer and combinations thereof.
Authors: Schlueter N, Lussi A, Ganss C, Gruber R Abstract Stannous chloride (SnCl2, 35%) can increase microtensile bond strength between a self-etching adhesive and dental hard tissue either alone or in combination with phosphoric acid (H3PO4, 35%). 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. Cell viability was determined by ...

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,...

Erosive potential of vitamin and vitamin+mineral effervescent tablets.

Effervescent tablets also contain organic acids (e.g. citric, tartaric, malic) in order to form carbon dioxide by contact with water – with the help of the carbonate salts of the tablets. To adequately inform patients about the possible erosive potential of effervescent tablets, this study was undertaken in order to investigate the erosive potential of effervescent tablets (ET), containing either a combination of vitamins and minerals or vitamins only, commerci...

Studies based on objective visual tests at a dental working distance were included. These studies show dramatic individual variation independent of the dentists’ age. The limitations due to presbyopia begin at an age of 40 years. Dental professionals should have their near vision tested regularly. Visual deficiencies can be compensated with magnification aids.

Traditionally, supernumerary teeth were diagnosed and located using two-dimensional (2D) radiographic methods such as panoramic views, cephalometric imaging, and also intraoral (also often occlusal) radiographs. 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...
