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.

Mechanism and clinical use of botulinum neurotoxin in head and facial region もっと読む

This review aims to provide the dental fraternity with information on the mechanism of botulinum neurotoxin and its therapeutic applications currently prevailing in clinical practice. It is essential, especially for prosthodontic experts treating temporomandibular disorders, bruxism, chronic tooth pain, myofascial pain, etc., to know the pros and cons of botulinum neurotoxin.

Fabrication of milled removable partial dentures using a custom plate with prefabricated artificial teeth もっと読む

The fabrication of removable partial dentures (RPDs) through fully digital procedures remains a challenge. In this study, the authors developed a novel CAD/CAM method for manufacturing a patient-specific RPD in a single piece, using a custom plate. This method, which does not use a gypsum model to combine RPD components, metal framework, denture base, and artificial denture teeth, offers an advantage in the efficiency and accuracy of RPD fabrication over conventional methods. The development of this fully digital RPDs fabrication approach presented in this report will significantly impact prosthodontic clinics worldwide, especially in the context of an increasing aging population.

Accuracy of optical interocclusal registration using an intraoral scanner もっと読む

Interocclusal registration is an important procedure in the digital workflow. This article compares the accuracy of optical interocclusal registration using Trios 3 with different instructions, such as “bite normally,” “bite lightly,” and “bite strongly.” The authors concluded that the use of optical impression methods under a “strong bite force” condition may reduce deviation and allow for stable interocclusal registration. This method will help to obtain accurate prosthodontic treatment in digital dentistry.

Visualization of droplets and aerosols in simulated dental treatments to clarify the effectiveness of oral suction devices もっと読む

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 もっと読む

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.
