Journal of Prosthodontic Research
Journal of Prosthodontic Research (JPR) is published 4 times annually, in January, April, July, and October, under the supervision of the JPR Editorial Committee of the Japan Prosthodontic Society, which selects all materials submitted for publication.

JPR originated as the official journal of the Japan Prosthodontic Society. It has continued to grow as a leading journal of prosthodontic research covering all aspects of oral and occlusal rehabilitation, fixed/removable prosthodontics, oral implantology, and applied oral biology and physiology. The Journal will cover all diagnostic and clinical management aspects necessary to reestablish subjective and objective harmonious oral aesthetics and function.

The most-targeted topics:
1)     Clinical Epidemiology and Prosthodontics
2)     Fixed/Removable Prosthodontics
3)     Oral Implantology
4)     Geriatric Dentistry
5)     Dental Materials / Adhesive Dentistry / Aesthetic Dentistry
6)     Digital Dentistry
7)     Oral Physiology and Biomechanics (Masticating and Swallowing Function, Parafunction, e.g., bruxism)
8)     Orofacial Pain and Temporomandibular Disorders (TMDs)
9)     Maxillofacial Prosthodontics and Dysphagia Rehabilitation
10)   Prosthodontics-Related Biosciences (Regenerative Medicine, Bone Biology, Mechanobiology, Microbiology/Immunology)

Prosthodontic treatment may become necessary as a result of developmental or acquired disturbances in the orofacial region, orofacial trauma, or a variety of dental and oral diseases and orofacial pain conditions.

The scientific content of the Journal, therefore, strives to reflect the best of evidence-based clinical dentistry. Modern clinical management should be based on solid scientific evidence, gathered about diagnostic procedures and the properties and efficacy of the chosen intervention. The content of the Journal also includes documentation of the possible side-effects of rehabilitation, as well as prognostic perspectives of the treatment modalities chosen.

The Journal focuses on presenting original research findings and original technical appraisals, as also critical reviews and relevant case reports, and stimulating commentaries and professional debates in the Letters to the Editor column.

Visualization of droplets and aerosols in simulated dental treatments to clarify the effectiveness of oral suction devices Read more
Editor's pick

Using a dental air turbine and a mannequin, the authors recreated the droplets and aerosols that occur during dental procedures. The key is the high-sensitivity camera and high-intensity LED light source, which allowed for high-quality images of the droplet spreading during the simulated procedure. Using these techniques, the authors demonstrated efficient reduction of droplet and aerosol spread by using oral suction devices. Understanding the spread and diffusion of such particles in the air is a key step in successfully protecting individuals from potentially harmful diseases that can be spread through airborne droplets.

Effect of partial ferrule on fracture resistance of endodontically treated teeth: A meta-analysis of in-vitro studies Read more
Editor's pick

There is a debate among clinicians regarding severe endodontically treated teeth (ETT) in terms of residual tooth substance—whether to extract the tooth or perform partial ferrule. This work conducts the first meta-analysis study that introduces clear evidence-based guidance for clinicians regarding partial ferrule so that they can take appropriate clinical decisions and adequately plan restorative dental treatments of ETT. 

Current surface modification strategies to improve the binding efficiency of emerging biomaterial polyetheretherketone (PEEK) with bone and soft tissue: A literature review Read more
Editor's pick

The widespread use of Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) as an oral implant material is an ongoing topic of investigation. This review article summarizes the current surface modification strategies used to improve the binding efficiency of the emerging biomaterial PEEK with bone and soft tissues. Although many studies have shown that various surface modifications can successfully improve the biological activity of PEEK, further in-vivo experiments and long-term clinical evaluations are required to investigate the effects of various surface modifications on the tissue integration ability of PEEK implants.

Radiographic predictive factors for 10-year survival of removable partial denture abutment teeth: Alveolar bone level and density Read more
Editor's pick

To predict the success of prosthodontic treatments and plan effective maintenance care strategies, it is essential to precisely evaluate the risk factors. This retrospective study reports the 5- and 10-year survival of the abutment teeth of removable partial dentures. In addition to the presence of root-canal treatment at the baseline, postoperative radiographic changes in crown-root ratio and alveolar bone density on the denture side were significantly associated with abutment tooth loss.

Effect of implant placement depth on bone remodeling on implant-supported single zirconia abutment crown: A 3D finite element study Read more
Editor's pick

In silico finite element analysis (FEA) has been widely used to evaluate stress/strain distribution in bone and implants under standardized conditions. The authors adopted a time-dependent FEA to evaluate the influence of subcrestal implant placement depth on bone remodeling. The time-dependent FEA demonstrated that an implant depth of more than 1.5 mm exhibited a high stress concentration and great overloading elements, particularly in cancellous bone. The established in silico approach will possibly become a useful tool to uncover the optimal implant placement depth that provides an appropriate bone response.
