The Journal of Prosthodontic Research has published important papers regarding the adhesive dentistry.The findings of this systematic review and network meta-analysis support the use of SELECTIVE ENAMEL-ETCHING procedure for its consequent stable, functional, and esthetic performance that persisted over at least 12 months.We believe that the clinical relevance would be of considerable interest to our readership.
Bonded ceramics restorations, such as occlusal veneers, have been established by appropriate bonding procedure and material science. This article reviewed the clinical observational findings and compared the in vitro outcomes of thin and ultrathin occlusal veneers using different materials and approaches. The results showed that the 1 mm lithium disilicate overlays and ultrathin one-step no-prep Vita Enamic occlusal veneers exhibited very high success and survival rates. It can be concluded that the clinical outcomes of thin and ultra-thin occlusal veneers/overlays are auspicious. This review article supports the advantage of the thin and ultrathin occlusal veneers.
A surgical protocol called under-preparation or undersized drilling is commonly used to obtain increased primary stability in low-density bones. However, there is no clinical consensus to determine the right balance between the under-preparation and marginal bone level (MBL )changes. This systematic review summarizes the influence of the type of drilling preparation of the implant site, in relation to bone mineral density, on clinical success, as expressed by the MBL and implant failure rate. This review article is recommended for clinicians to understand the osteotomy preparation protocols in implant treatment.
Recently, digital dentistry has been used not only in fixed-prosthodontics but also in removable dentures in Japan. However, the clinical evidence for the efficacy of treatment of complete dentures manufactured using digital technology is lacking. This randomized controlled cross-over trial investigated patient satisfaction, oral health-related quality of life, patient preference, number of visits, and treatment time with complete dentures using 3D printing. The findings of this study indicated that patient outcomes were slightly inferior to those where conventional treatment methods were used for complete dentures. However, the number of patient visits required for digital denture treatment was less than for conventional complete denture treatment. This suggests that the digital complete denture treatment is superior. This paper is recommended for JPR readers who wish to understand the clinical advantages and limitations of 3D-printed complete dentures.
Although tooth wear is caused by attrition, erosion, and abrasion, the relationship between bruxism (awake and/or asleep) and tooth wear remains unknown. This study aimed to assess masseter electromyographic activity during wakefulness and sleep in individuals with moderate or severe tooth wear. The results of this case-control study showed an association between higher masseter electromyographic activity during wakefulness and sleep and increased the severity of tooth wear. The authors suggest that assessing masticatory electromyographic activity during wakefulness and sleep could be an important predictor of tooth wear progression.
