The impact of financial incentives on dental x-rays
AbstractThis paper assesses the impact of dentist remuneration on the incidence of potentially harmful dental x-rays. We use unique panel data which provide details of 1.3 million treatment claims byScottish NHS dentists made between 1998 and 2007. Controlling for unobserved heterogeneity of both patients and dentists we estimate a series of fixed-effects models that are informed by a theoretical model of x-ray delivery and identify the effects on dental x-raying of dentists moving from a fixed salary to fee-for-service and patients moving from co-payment to exemption. We establish that there are significant increases in x...

Understanding external cervical resorption patterns in endodontically treated teeth
ConclusionsSimilar ECR patterns were observed in all examined teeth. These pattern consisted of an initiation, a resorption and a reparative stage. Some differences were noticed between endodontically treated and teeth with vital pulps, mainly in the resorption and reparative stages. The resorption stage in root canal filled teeth was more intense than the repair stage, as many clastic cells and abundant granulation tissue were observed in all samples. This is possibly due to the absence of the pulp and protective PRRS layer and/or to the altered chemical composition of the root dentine after root canal treatment. Furtherm...
