Benchmarking Outcomes in Implant Prosthodontics: Partial Fixed Dental Prostheses and Crowns Supported by Implants with a Turned Surface over 10 to 28 Years at the University of Toronto.
CONCLUSION: A high proportion (94%) of conventional machined Brånemark System implants placed between 1983 and 2001 remained in function after an average of 17.5 years. The original superstructures predominantly fabricated as prefabricated acrylic teeth and acrylic resin reinforced with a cast palladium-silver alloy core were still in place for 70% of the participants, and 48% of the superstructures had never undergone any form of repairs.

Expanded Medicaid dental coverage under the Affordable Care Act: an analysis of Minnesota emergency department visits
ConclusionsThe Minnesota experience suggests that the increase in Medicaid dental benefits through the ACA has significantly decreased NTDC visits, especially among young adults who were eligible for a dependent coverage policy that extends parents' health insurance to age 26. To our knowledge, no previous study has reported on the impact of early Medicaid expansion on the rate of ED use for NTDCs. (Source: Journal of Public Health Dentistry)

Genetic Polymorphisms in DEFB1 and miRNA202 Are Involved in Salivary Human β-Defensin 1 Levels and Caries Experience in Children
In this study we aimed (1) to investigate the relationship between salivary hBDs and caries and (2) to evaluate the association of genetic polymorphisms in DEFB1 and microRNA202 (miRNA202 ) with salivary levels of hBDs and caries experience. Two data sets were available for this study, totalizing 678 Brazilian children. Dental examination and saliva collection were performed in all included children. The salivary level for hDB1, hBD2, and hBD4 was assessed by ELISA sandwich technique in 168 children. The DNA was extracted from saliva, and polymorphisms in DEFB1 and miRNA202 were analyzed by real-time PCR. Statistical analy...

Determining the epidemiologic, outcome, and prognostic factors of oral malignant melanoma by using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database.
CONCLUSIONS: Age at diagnosis, decade of diagnosis, extent of disease, tumor size, and SES are prognostic factors related to OMM survival. Surgical resection and radiation therapy both improve OMM survival. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: Early and detailed examinations for OMM are critical to improving the survival rate in patients with OMM, especially in older patients and patients of lower SES.

Potential synergistic effects of a mixture of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) cement and Bacillus subtilis in dental caries treatment
This study was planned to examine the scientific basis of this clinical finding, with examination of possible synergistic effects of MTA cement andB. subtilis. From these experiments, the following five results were obtained: (1)B. subtilis did not proliferate in liquid-culture media at pH ≥10. (2)B. subtilis proliferated when mixed with MTA cement. (3) There was no significant difference in proliferation ofB. subtilis under aerobic and microaerobic conditions. (4)B. subtilis exhibited antibacterial effects onStaphylococcus aureus andLactobacillus casei. (5) MTA cement exhibited antibacterial effects onS. aureus andStrep...

Preprosthetic surgery, fault-lines, and scholarly leadership
The adjunctive merits of preprosthetic surgical interventions were significantly advanced by the 1982 introduction of the osseointegration technique. An already established Prosthodontic/Surgical synergy was compellingly strengthened by the relative ease of PI Br ånemark’s strict protocol of implanting titanium teeth root analogs in diverse orofacial host bone sites. Three determinants of similar scientifically driven benchmark events - speed of change, a new disruptive biotechnology, an accompanying system application revolution – rapidly followed and reshaped dental educational and practice narratives, followed by 4...

Anterior indexing technique for orbital prostheses
This article describes a straightforward technique for indexing the ocular part of an orbital prosthesis from the anterior aspect. The iris of the ocular portion remains unaffected while using this technique. There is no damage to the moulage as indexing is done from the anterior aspect. This technique provides stability, prevents rotation of the ocular portion, and allows the moulage to be used multiple times. It is cost effective and requires minimal manipulation during processing.

Maxillofacial prosthetics training and practice profiles in the United States
Conclusions This study reveals that personal satisfaction, mentorship, and prosthodontic residency exposure were the reasons most prosthodontists pursued an additional year of maxillofacial prosthetic fellowship. Most were very satisfied with their training and chosen career path and would recommend an additional year of training. The majority of maxillofacial prosthodontists provided maxillofacial prosthetic treatment for approximately one fourth of their practice time. The most common procedures performed were obturators, dental oncology, and mandibular resections. (Source: The Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry)

Age estimation by the Cameriere ’s normalized measurements (CNM) of the single permanent mandibular tooth on a panoramic radiograph
There is no deficiency in the literature on dental development, and many articles have been written on the methods of dental age estimation [1]. Age estimation of non-adult subjects represents an important part of clinical medicine and dentistry like pediatric endocrinology and orthodontics, forensic odontology and human anthropology [2]. It can be employed in age-at-death estimation for the identification of deceased individuals for legal purposes, but also to provide relevant information about past populations from archaeological remains [3,4].

Accuracy and reliability of different cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) devices for structural analysis of alveolar bone in comparison with multislice CT and micro-CT.
CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrated that most CBCT machines may be able to quantitatively assess alveolar bone quality, with a level of accuracy and reliability that approaches micro-CT. One may therefore propose to extrapolate this to clinical CBCT imaging, certainly when there is a need for implant rehabilitation in dentate jaw bones.

Seven mm long dental implants in posterior jaws: 3-year report of an ongoing prospective single cohort study.
CONCLUSIONS: Within the limitations of this study, 7 mm long implants in posterior atrophic jaws can be a viable treatment option given the good prosthetic and implant success rates, low marginal bone loss and low incidence of complications. Nevertheless, longer follow-ups are needed to validate the long-term outcome. Conflict-of-interest statement: This study was funded by grant no. 2015-1378 from Nobel Biocare Services.

Do repeated changes of abutments have any influence on the stability of peri-implant tissues? One-year post-loading results from a multicentre randomised controlled trial.
CONCLUSIONS: One-year post-loading data showed that repeated abutment changes significantly increased bone loss of 0.16, but this difference cannot be considered clinically relevant, therefore clinicians can use the procedure they find more convenient for their specific patient. In addition, immediately non-occlusally loaded dental implants are a viable alternative to conventional loading.

Safety and efficacy of a biomimetic monolayer of permanently bound multiphosphonic acid molecules on dental implants: 3 years post-loading results from a pilot quadruple-blinded randomised controlled trial.
CONCLUSIONS: Medium-term data (3-years post-loading) of implants with a biomimetic monolayer of permanently bound multiphosphonic acid molecules (SurfLink surface treatment) presented no safety issues.

CONCLUSIONS: One year after treatment, both groups achieved similar clinical results; however, patients endodontically treated in a single visit suffered less postoperative pain and took less analgesics than patients treated in two visits, therefore a single-visit treatment should be recommended.
