63. CBCT Appears To Be More Accurate than Intraoral Radiographs in Detecting Artificially Created Recurrent Caries

? Clinical Bottom Line CBCT appears to be more accurate than intraoral radiographs in detecting artificially created recurrent caries. This is based on in vitro studies that showed that CBCT assisted in diagnosing recurrent dental caries amongst the observers. However, more in vivo studies with natural recurrent caries should be conducted to overcome the limitations of artificially created recurrent caries and observers’ bias. In addition, when using CBCT scans, limitations such as the increased (...) the Az values (p > 0.05) of the intraoral film and digital systems.

WITHDRAWN: Pulp management for caries in adults: maintaining pulp vitality. There is a range of treatment options for the management of the pulp in extensively decayed teeth. These include direct and indirect pulp capping, pulpotomy or pulpectomy. If the tooth is symptomatic or if there are periapical bone changes, then endodontic treatment is required. However, if the tooth is asymptomatic but the caries is extensive, there is no consensus as to the best method of management. In addition (...) , there has been a recent move towards using alternative materials and methods such as the direct or indirect placement of bonding agents and mineral trioxide aggregate.Most studies have investigated the management of asymptomatic carious teeth with or without an exposed dental pulp using various capping materials (e.g. calcium hydroxide, Ledermix, Triodent, Biorex, etc.). However, there is no long term data regarding the outcome of management of asymptomatic, carious teeth according to different

66. WITHDRAWN: Dental fillings for the treatment of caries in the primary dentition. Full Text available with Trip Pro

WITHDRAWN: Dental fillings for the treatment of caries in the primary dentition. Childhood caries (tooth decay) consists of a form of tooth decay that affects the milk teeth (also known as baby or primary teeth) of children. This may range from tooth decay in a single tooth to rampant caries affecting all the teeth in the mouth. Primary teeth in young children are vital to their development and every effort should be made to retain these teeth for as long as is possible. Dental fillings (...) or restorations have been used as an intervention to repair these damaged teeth. Oral health professionals need to make astute decisions about the type of restorative (filling) material they choose to best manage their patients with childhood caries. This decision is by no means an easy one as remarkable advances in dental restorative materials over the last 10 years has seen the introduction of a multitude of different filling materials claiming to provide the best performance in terms of durability

67. Lasers for caries removal in deciduous and permanent teeth. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Lasers for caries removal in deciduous and permanent teeth. Despite considerable improvements in oral health, dental caries continue to be a public health issue. The most frequently used, and universally accepted technique, to remove caries is through mechanical ablation of decayed tissues by means of rotating drills (diamond or tungsten carbide, or both). In the past few decades, the introduction of adhesive filling materials (resin composites) has affected cavity filling procedures (...) by reducing its retention needs, with advantages for dental tissue conservation. Consequently, new minimally invasive strategies were introduced into dental practice, such as the use of lasers to perform highly controlled tissue ablation. Laser use has also raised expectations of limiting pain and discomfort compared to using drills, as well as overcoming drill phobia.The main objective of the review was to compare the effects of laser-based methods to conventional mechanical methods for removing dental

Clinical Bottom Line Deamination of arginine, a semi-essential amino acid, by some oral bacteria results in ammonia production that leads to an alkaline oral environment, thus reducing the cariogenicity of oral biofilms. This effect is possibly the reason for current observation that dentifrice combining arginine (1.5%) and fluoride (1450 ppm) is more effective than 1450 ppm fluoride only dentifrice

Key results A statistically significant correlation between carious lesions in the primary and permanent dentitions was discovered (r=0.5, P #2) Mejare/2001 374 children Case Control Study Key results The likelihood of caries on the first permanent molar is 15 times greater if adjacent to a carious primary second molar than if adjacent to a healthy tooth. No increase in caries rate was discovered with deeper carious lesions vs. enamel or dentin caries.

Applicability Skeie: Although the study was performed on offspring of people in a higher socioeconomic status, the evidence is applicable to the majority of pediatric dental patients.

Adhesively bonded versus non-bonded amalgam restorations for dental caries. Dental caries (tooth decay) is one of the commonest diseases which afflicts mankind, and has been estimated to affect up to 80% of people in high-income countries. Caries adversely affects and progressively destroys the tissues of the tooth, including the dental pulp (nerve), leaving teeth unsightly, weakened and with impaired function. The treatment of lesions of dental caries, which are progressing through dentine (...) and have caused the formation of a cavity, involves the provision of dental restorations (fillings). This review updates the previous version published in 2009.To assess the effects of adhesive bonding on the in-service performance and longevity of dental amalgam restorations.We searched the Cochrane Oral Health Group Trials Register (to 21 January 2016), the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) (The Cochrane Library 2015, Issue 12), MEDLINE via Ovid (1946 to 21 January 2016
