Profile and competences for the graduating European dentist - update 2009.
TLDR
The profile and competences for the European Dentist as approved by the General Assembly of the Association for Dental Education in Europe at its annual meeting held in Helsinki in August 2009 is presented. Expand
The use of the Internet within a dental school.
TLDR
Differences in the attitudes of staff and students to the use of Internet as a resource for dentistry within a dental school in the UK were revealed. Expand
Cleaning of oval canals using ultrasonic or sonic instrumentation.
TLDR
This study investigated the effect of direction of file oscillation on the amount of debris and smear remaining within oval canals by analyzing the results of six experimental groups and found no significant difference between sonic or ultrasonic instrumentation as to debris or smear layer remaining. Expand
A novel methodology providing insights into removal of biofilm-mimicking hydrogel from lateral morphological features of the root canal during irrigation procedures.
TLDR
Initial results showed that UAI improves hydrogel removal from the accessory canal anatomy, but the creation of stable bubbles on the Hydrogel-liquid interface may reduce the cleaning rate. Expand
The automatic recognition and counting of cough
TLDR
An automated system for the analysis of sound files containing coughs and other non-cough events has been developed, with a high robustness and good degree of accuracy towards the number of actual coughs in the audio recording. Expand
Magnets in prosthetic dentistry.
TLDR
This review chronicles the development of magnets in dentistry and summarizes future research in their use, as well as reviewing the literature researched by using the Science Citation Index and Compendex Web from 1981 to 2000. Expand
Reciprocating root canal technique induces greater debris accumulation than a continuous rotary technique as assessed by 3-dimensional micro-computed tomography.
TLDR
In canals with a high prevalence of isthmuses and protrusions, using multifile rotary systems may be preferred over reciprocating files because it can yield cleanerCanals with less debris accumulation. Expand
Evaluation of smear layer removal by EDTAC and sodium hypochlorite with ultrasonic agitation.
TLDR
Under ultrasonic agitation, sodium hypochlorite associated with EDTAC removed the smear layer from root canal walls, whereas irrigation with distilled water or 1.0% sodium hypchlorite alone did not remove smear layer. Expand
Incidence of root face alteration after ultrasonic retrograde cavity preparation.
TLDR
Results showed no root face cracking across the full range of instrument power settings, although chipping of the retrograde cavity margins was observed. Expand
