https://doi.org/10.1002/14651858.CD001168.pub3
The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews References; Lodi G, Manfredi M et. al.

Feb 27th, 2020 - Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a relatively common chronic T cell-mediated disease, which can cause significant pain, particularly in its erosive or ulcerative forms. As pain is the indication for treatment of OLP, pain resolution is the primary outcome for this review. This review is an update of a version last published in 2011, but focuses on the evidence for corticosteroid treatment only. A se...

Feb 27th, 2020 - A 7-year-old girl presented with necrotic gingival tissue manifesting as large ulcers in the labial and lingual gingival tissue along the region of the mandibular central incisors and right canine. The severe symptoms associated with the gingival lesions were an indication for the use of a topical tetracycline solution. The patient's parent was instructed to prepare the antibiotic solution by c...

https://doi.org/10.1080/22221751.2020.1730710
Emerging Microbes & Infections; Gaye A, Diagne MM et. al.

Feb 27th, 2020 - The mesoniviruses (MESOVs) belong to the newly described Mesoniviridae family (Order: Nidovirales). They have never been reported in Senegal until recently during a study in arbovirus emergence with the detection of a new species of MESOV named Dianke virus (DKV) from common mosquitoes from eastern Senegal. Actually, their vector competence for this newly described DKV is unknown. We, therefore...

Risk factors for human papillomavirus-positive nonoropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma.
https://doi.org/10.1002/hed.26116
Head & Neck REFERENCES; Windon MJ, D'Souza G et. al.

Feb 25th, 2020 - Human papillomavirus (HPV)-positive oropharyngeal cancer (HPV-OPC) is distinct from HPV-unassociated head and neck cancer. However, whether risk factors for HPV-positive oropharyngeal and nonoropharyngeal squamous cell cancer are the same is unclear. Incident cases of HPV-positive head and neck cell cancer and matched non-cancer controls were enrolled in a multi-institutional, prospective study...

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery; Posnick JC, Kinard BE

Feb 25th, 2020 - The surgical techniques and execution of primary cleft lip and palate repair are no longer the greatest challenge to achieving successful rehabilitation for those born with facial clefting (i.e., bilateral and unilateral cleft lip and palate). Despite a surgeon's best efforts, when cleft palate repair is carried out during infancy, by the mixed dentition, a majority will demonstrate nasomaxilla...

Advances in Clinical and Experimental Medicine : Official Organ Wroclaw Medical University; Kubasiewicz-Ross P, Fleischer M et. al.

Feb 25th, 2020 - The main goal of the treatment of the peri-implantitis is to decontaminate the surface of the implant, thereby enabling further treatment involving, e.g., guided bone regeneration. Since new implants of the rougher surface were introduced to the common dental practice, decontamination is even more difficult. The aim of the study was to evaluate 3 different methods of decontaminating implants wi...

Inflammation Li X, Tang L et. al.

Feb 25th, 2020 - Release of titanium ions (Ti ions) frequently occurs around dental implants and, as a consequence, higher content of Ti is typically present in peri-implantitis tissue. Unlike chronic periodontitis, Ti ions may play a role in the development of peri-implantitis. Inflammasomes are multiprotein signal transduction complexes, involved in inflammation and immune response, which lead to the secretio...

Dental Materials Journal; Lümkemann N, Eichberger M et. al.

Feb 24th, 2020 - Elastic properties of Aryl-Ketone-Polymer (UAKP) and tensile bond strength (TBS) to denture resin (PalaXpress) were tested. Indentation modulus (EIT) and indentation hardness (HIT) were measured via Martens hardness (n=10 specimens) with 4.2±0.6 kN/mm2 and 261±8 N/mm2 respectively.

International Journal of Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery; Deng H, Yuan P et. al.

Feb 24th, 2020 - One critical step in routine orthognathic surgery is to reestablish a desired final dental occlusion. Traditionally, the final occlusion is established by hand articulating stone dental models. To date, there are still no effective solutions to establish the final occlusion in computer-aided surgical simulation. In this study, we consider the most common one-piece maxillary orthognathic surgery...

Mediators of Inflammation; Wu P, Luo S et. al.

Feb 24th, 2020 - Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a chronic inflammatory oral mucosal disorder mediated by T cells, with a multifactorial etiology. Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) is a common autoimmune disease characterized by hypothyroidism. Although many clinical studies conducted over the past several decades have reported the cooccurrence of OLP and HT, the underlying mechanism remains unclear. This review summari...
