  • Urgent dental care on a national level during the COVID-19 epidemic.
    This paper aims to report and discuss the organization and statistics of dental care during the COVID-19 epidemics on the national level in Slovenia, providing helpful information to health policy planners worldwide.During an eight-week lockdown, Emergency Dental Centers (EDCs) were established and coordinated on the national level to treat patients’ urgent dental conditions. Telemedicine was […]
  • Age-related radiomorphometric changes on panoramic radiographs.
    We aimed to analyse age-related anatomical changes in teeth and mandibular structures using panoramic radiographs.We included 471 subjects aged 13-70 years (mean, 35.12 ± 18.72 years). Panoramic radiographs were used to record intraoral condition and radiomorphometric parameters. After grouping the subjects by age decade, descriptive statistics and analysis of variance were performed to assess age-related patterns.The number of missing […]
  • Evaluating the substantivity of silver diamine fluoride in a dentin model.
    The goal of endodontic therapy is to prevent apical periodontitis. This is achieved by biomechanical preparation, microbial control using endodontic irrigants, and complete obturation of the canal space. In order to prevent possible post-obturation complications and for an added antimicrobial effect, substantivity is a desired characteristic of endodontic irrigants. Currently the most commonly used endodontic […]
  • Development and evaluation of an interdisciplinary teaching model via 3D printing.
    The investigation aimed to assess the feasibility of creating an interdisciplinary training model simulating endodontic, restorative as well as implantologic treatment procedures by using 3D printing technology. A CBCT scan of the mandible of a real patient was initially taken. The generated DICOM-data were converted to a STL-file, which was further processed to design spaces […]
  • Intentional replantation – a clinical review of cases undertaken at a major UK dental school.
    Introduction Intentional replantation (IR) may offer a solution for persistent periapical lesions associated with endodontically treated teeth in select cases. This case series demonstrates the use of IR as an alternative treatment approach to both orthograde and surgical endodontic retreatment. The indications, contraindications, benefits and risks of IR are discussed, and the clinical procedure is […]
  • Current trends in endodontic irrigation amongst general dental practitioners and dental schools within the United Kingdom and Ireland: a cross-sectional survey.
    Aims To investigate current trends in endodontic irrigation amongst general dental practitioners (GDPs) and dental schools within UK and Ireland. Secondly, to evaluate if significant differences exist between the irrigant practices of National Health Service (NHS) and private GDPs.Methodology In 2019, an online questionnaire was distributed to the 18 dental schools within the UK and […]

  • Acute endodontic and dental trauma provision during the COVID-19 crisis.
    COVID-19 (also known as coronavirus) has had a profound impact on dentistry, with all elective treatment grinding to a halt initially and a slow phased return to normal services. The guidance available regarding treating dental emergencies is currently advice, analgesia and antimicrobials, where indicated in the first instance. Some patients cannot be managed successfully with […]
  • Clinical and radiographic comparative study to evaluate the efficacy of restoring destroyed primary incisors using two different techniques-A pilot study.
    The restoration of destroyed maxillary primary incisors is difficult because of the insufficient amount of coronal structure. This pilot study aimed to compare the efficacy of composite posts technique and glass fiber posts technique in restoring destroyed primary incisors.Thirty-six destroyed maxillary primary incisors in 11 children with early childhood caries were randomly assigned after endodontic […]
  • Live lectures and videos do not differ in relation to learning outcomes of dental ergonomics.
    This study aimed to compare the knowledge attained by third-year dental students in physical ergonomics altering live lectures and videos in teaching. The second aim was to investigate implementation of the theoretical knowledge on ergonomics into practice.Forty-five students divided into two groups attended a live lecture (45 min) or viewed videos (45 min). After the first teaching […]
  • Comparison of articaine, lidocaine and mepivacaine for buccal infiltration after inferior alveolar nerve block in mandibular posterior teeth with irreversible pulpitis.
    Aims To compare the anaesthetic efficacy of articaine, lidocaine and mepivacaine for buccal infiltration (BI) following lidocaine inferior alveolar nerve block (IANB) in mandibular posterior teeth with irreversible pulpitis.Materials and methods Patients with irreversible pulpitis in mandibular posterior teeth and unsuccessful IANB were randomly assigned to three groups: articaine group (n = 52), lidocaine group […]
  • Investigating acute management of irreversible pulpitis: a survey of general dental practitioners in North East England.
    Objective To investigate current strategies of acute management of irreversible pulpitis by general dental practitioners.Design A postal survey was sent to a representative sample based on postal code to 180 dentists registered with the General Dental Council in the North East of England. The questionnaire identified general dental practitioners’ strategies for the diagnosis and acute […]
  • Dentists’ decisions regarding the need for cuspal coverage for endodontically treated and vital posterior teeth.
    Deciding when cuspal coverage is needed for posterior teeth is considered a challenge for dentists. The aims were to assess dentists’ decision making regarding the need for cuspal coverage for vital teeth (VT) and endodontically treated teeth (ETT) with varying amounts of tooth structure loss and to identify clinical situations of dissimilarity and uncertainty in […]
  • Effectiveness of passive ultrasonic irrigation on periapical healing and root canal disinfection: a systematic review.
    Objectives To evaluate the effectiveness of passive ultrasonic irrigation (PUI) compared with non-activated irrigation (NAI) on periapical healing and root canal disinfection.Data source A comprehensive search without restrictions was performed in the following systematic electronic databases: PubMed, Scopus, Cochrane, Web of Science, ScienceDirect and OpenGrey. Additional studies were sought through hand-searching in the main endodontic […]
  • Endodontic microsurgery. Part two: armamentarium and technique.
    Modern endodontic microsurgery has a high reported success rate of up to 93.5%, making it a viable treatment option in the management of periapical disease when orthograde root treatment is not possible or inappropriate. This high success rate is intimately related to advanced techniques that have allowed practitioners to overcome historical barriers to the success […]
  • Endodontic microsurgery. Part one: diagnosis, patient selection and prognoses.
    Historically, surgical endodontics has been viewed as a treatment of last resort, mainly due to poor outcomes as a result of limitations in materials and techniques. Contemporary techniques, modern materials and better visualisation have all led to an improvement in success rates, making endodontic microsurgery a valuable treatment option to certain patients. Such advances, however, […]
