BACKGROUND With the advances in optical technology, dentistry has been benefitted in varied ways over the ages. AIM The aim of this study was to assess the effect of dental magnification loupes on psychomotor skill acquisition during preclinical operative exercise. METHODS 40 Typhodont teeth tooth no. 36 and 46 (Frasaco - U.S.A.) were mounted on the(More)
The purpose of this paper is to review the phenomenon of nanotechnology as it might apply to dentistry as a new field called nanodentistry. Treatment possibilities might include the application of nanotechnology to local anesthesia, dentition renaturalization, the permanent cure for hypersensitivity, complete orthodontic realignment in a single visit,(More)
Potassium Nitrate has been used as a desensitizing agent to treat dentinal hypersensitivity. The effectiveness of a potassium nitrate is evaluated both in the form of a toothpaste and a mouthwash in a clinical study. Thirty patients were assessed using evaporative stimuli and thermal stimuli and response was evaluated using Visual Analogue Scale at(More)
Root coverage is achieved by many procedures like free gingival autografts, connective tissue grafts and pedicle grafts. Several studies state that root coverage using connective tissue grafts have high success rates but have disadvantages like creation of second surgical site and post-operative color harmony is less. Although Cohen and Ross reported more(More)
Background: Research has been done previously on the oxidizing property and the clinical efficacy of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) on malodor. The aim of the present study was to compare the inhibitory effect of a mouthwash containing 0.1% ClO2 with 0.2% Chlorhexidine mouthwash.on morning oral malodor. Materials and methods: A randomized, double blind, crossover(More)
The periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontic (PAOO) technique combines selective decortication facilitated orthodontics with periodontal regeneration in order to create rapid orthodontic tooth movement (OTM). This reduces potential side ef devitalization, relapse, inadequate basal bone and bacterial time periodontal infection. Tooth movement can be(More)
