This article describes the principles of laser operation and the clinical application of laser technology in the different fields of dentistry. It discusses the use of the Er:YAG laser in restorative dentistry, pediatric dentistry, and periodontics, as well as the introduction of a new side-firing spiral tip for efficient cleaning of the root canal system(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM The penetration of oral fluids and bacteria at the interface between the preparation walls and amalgam restorations, known as marginal microleakage, continues to be a problem in restorative dentistry. Microleakage may result in secondary caries and the irritation of the pulp. PURPOSE This study evaluated the effect of amalgam type,(More)
Lingual forced eruption is a treatment modality that minimizes esthetic impairment during orthodontic treatment. Use of this technique can enhance the acceptance of orthodontic treatment by adult patients and minimize unnecessary compromises in the treatment planning of submerged roots. In this clinical report, a treatment modality for forced eruption(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of a thin layer of flowable composite on microleakage in Class II direct packable composite resin restorations on young permanent teeth in vitro. METHODS Twenty sound human premolars and molars extracted for orthodontic reasons were selected for this study. The teeth were randomly assigned(More)
Many over-the-counter microbicidal contraceptive methods reduce the risk of acquiring sexually transmitted diseases. This pilot project compared the use of female controlled barrier methods in an extremely high-risk population of low-income drug abusing women following an intervention designed to promote HIV risk reduction and barrier use. An HIV(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Forced eruption is a prosthodontic procedure that enables the treatment of otherwise problematic restorative conditions. During the vertical orthodontic movement, the root may be moved laterally, affecting the position of a tooth in the arch. PURPOSE This study quantified the degree of lateral movement possible during the eruptive(More)
Modern dentistry aims to preserve tooth structure using minimally invasive procedures. Chemomechanical removal of caries is a new method with the advantage of selective removal of severely demineralized dentin. In addition, the method enhances the clinician's ability to diagnose caries. Ensuring chairside caries diagnosis and removal, based on biologic(More)
This study investigated the degree of dye penetration of two composite inlay systems with different adhesive and bonding protocol. Forty whole extracted premolars and molars were collected. The teeth were immediately stored in water at room temperature. Class II cavity preparations were prepared and restored both, in the direct and the indirect techniques(More)
