Efficacy of autologous platelet rich fibrin in bone augmentation and bone regeneration at extraction socket.
CONCLUSIONS: The application of autologous platelet rich fibrin (PRF) show benefits in promoting soft tissue healing and bone regeneration in different surgical procedures. Furthermore, it is an autologous biomaterial which has low cost and does not need administration of any additives. Nevertheless, further studies with a bigger sample size and longer follow up duration are necessary to facilitate more substantial evidence of the efficacy of PRF in promotion of soft and hard tissue healing.

Clinical substantiation of the sparing and less invasive implant prosthetics of the edentulous lower jaw method.
CONCLUSIONS: The performed survey of prosthetic treatment patients with the edentulous lower jaw showed the effect use of a sparing method of implantation prosthetics. The fixation quality achieved with a single support-retaining implant was sufficient to improve the functional and comfortable using of the lower jaw prosthesis. It was found that the stability of implants statistically did not significantly depend on the number of used implants (p>0.05). PMID: 31074459 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Stomatologija)

Correlation of temporomandibular joint clinical signs with cone beam computed tomography radiologic features in juvenile idiopathic arthritis patients.
CONCLUSIONS: There was no conclusive evidence found regarding correlation between TMJ clinical signs and radiological features of osseous destruction in patients with JIA - only weak correlation between pain and condyle surface flattening was observed. The number of clinical TMJ signs does not correlate with number of radiological features. For the clinical decision both clinical examination and CBCT would be useful in the early detection of osseous destruction of the TMJ in JIA patients.

CONCLUSION: Although clinical symptomatology is not conspicuous among other types of sinusitis, the odontogenic maxillary sinusitis treatment regimen is different. It consists of eliminating dental infection and management of sinusitis. The usage of Caldwell-Luc approach is limited these days and recommended only when a better access to sinus is needed, for example, removing large foreign bodies. Endoscopic sinus surgery is widely used these days to remove the inflamed sinus mucosa, foreign bodies, displaced teeth, while preserving physiological function of the sinus.

CONCLUSIONS: Implant's length has little if none impact on initial implant anchorage, especially in greatly compromised residual bone situations. Results have confirmed that implant initial stability mainly depends on implant's macro-design and further its development on implant's micro-design: namely, implant diameter rather than length, tapered shape and improved thread design determines primarily acquired mechanical anchorage, while bioactive surface treatment ensures development of biological stability.
