Intraoral scan bodies in implant dentistry: A systematic review

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 13:05:00 +0100

ConclusionsISBs are complex implant-positioning-transfer devices that play an essential role in the digital workflow and fabrication of accurately fitting implant-supported restorations. With scanner technology rapidly evolving and becoming more widespread, future studies are needed and should be directed toward all parts of the digital workflow when using ISBs. By understanding the basic components of ISBs and how they relate to digital scanning and CAD-CAM technology, more emphasis may be placed on their importance and usage in the digital workflow to ensure accurate transfer of implant position to the virtual and analog definitive cast. Efforts should be made by clinicians to identify an optimal ISB design in relation to the specific intraoral scanning technology being used. (Source: De...

What Are Complications of Oropharyngeal Trauma?

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 00:37:55 +0100

Discussion Oropharyngeal trauma is common and ranges from minor contusions to severe trauma of the head and neck. Sudden movement while having a foreign object in the mouth is a very common scenario with falls or collisions being common mechanisms. Common objects include toys, sticks, pens/pencils, chopsticks, toothbrushes, and popsicle sticks. Many of these injuries cause minimal problems such as a contusion to lips (i.e. “fat lip”). In general, the more anterior the location the more common the injury and the less likely to have a severe injury (i.e. lips). Whereas posterior structures are more protected, but because of their location next to vital structures, the potential complications can be higher. Similarly, midline injuries tend to be less risk for complications than l...



How To Walk the Innovation Walk (Not Just Talk the Talk)

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 19:33:26 +0100

In an industry led by the likes of Medtronic, Boston Scientific,  Abbott, and Edwards Lifesciences,  there's a popular notion that innovation doesn't happen at large public companies, it happens at small startups that large companies try to buy in an effort to grow inorganically. That's not necessarily true.  As many industry thought leaders have explored, big medtech companies can still innovate at a startup pace. But an expert who spoke at the Design of Medical Devices Conference in Minneapolis last week says these companies have to learn to approach innovation differently in order to be successful. "Innovation is not a 'thing'. I know that seems really obvious, but I assure you that at a large company that makes a lot of 'things' that is not always obvious," said Cristin Moran, the ...

Sucking habits effects on facial structures “…depend[s] on the frequency, intensity and duration of the habits, the osteogenic development and the genetic endowment of the child.” Breastfeeding assists normal development of the facial structures (mainly maxilla, mandible and dental arches) by proper muscle activity and tongue positions.

Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent. 2018 Mar 7. doi: 10.11607/prd.3123. [Epub ahead of print]AbstractThe aim of this study was to compare midfacial soft tissue assessment and horizontal width changes of fresh socket implants in immediate and delayed prosthetic restorations. Patients requiring extractions in the maxillary esthetic zone were recruited. In one group, 30 implants were placed using an immediate loading approach; in the second group, 30 implants were loaded after a period of 3 months. At the 4-year follow-up, statistically significant differences (P< .001) were found. Immediate implants restored on the day of surgery demonstrated more stable midfacial soft tissue levels and bone volume maintenance than delayed implants. (Source: Dental Technology Blog)

Influence of Polishing System on the Surface Roughness of Flowable and Regular-Viscosity Bulk Fill Composites.

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 20:23:00 +0100

This study evaluated the influence of polishing protocols on the surface roughness of flowable and regular bulk fill composites. Five bulk fill composites were tested: SureFil SDR Flow (SDR), Tetric EvoFlow Bulk fill (TEF), Filtek Bulk Fill Flowable (FIF), Tetric EvoCeram Bulk Fill (TEC), and Filtek Bulk Fill Posterior (FIP). Two polishing protocols were tested: Sof-Lex and Astropol. Astropol created a smoother surface for FIP (P< .05); however, the polishing protocol did not influence surface roughness on TEC (P> .05). SDR, TEF, and FIF exhibited rougher surfaces when polished. Sof-Lex created rougher surfaces for bulk fill composites. It was concluded that surface roughness was related to material composition rather than the polishing system. (Source: Dental Technology Blog)
