Restorative dentistry

Denture plaque, a biofilm that develops on denture surfaces, could contribute to many oral and systemic afflictions.

While previous studies on models have shown the effectiveness of denture adhesives in terms of retention and cleanability, no reports have evaluated their effectiveness in the oral cavity.

Despite its reputation as the most widely used restorative dental material currently, resin-based materials have acknowledged shortcomings.

This study investigates the effects of in-office bleaching agents on the color change and surface roughness of nanofilled resin composite finished by various polishing procedures.

Despite the promising opportunities provided by selective procedures, not all of the clinical procedures in restorative dentistry are supported by good research.

Some studies have reported an association between dental caries experience and genetics, stating that genes can function as risk or protective factors for caries. 

Water residue and replacement difficulty cause insufficient adhesive infiltration in demineralized dentin matrix, which produces a defective hybrid layer and thus a bonding durability problem,...

Opaque cements can be esthetically unfavorable and alternative translucent materials have been developed. The aim of this study was to evaluate the color interference of a new translucent cement...

Despite increasing evidence, dentists have not widely adopted repairs. The authors aimed to develop and test potential interventions targeting dentists’ behavior.

The interest toward the deep margin elevation technique has increased over the past years and several clinical and laboratory studies have been proposed to validate this approach. 

In the clinical practice of a dentist, it often happens that you must re-operate on restorations performed in the past and often the most common causes can be traced back to secondary caries,...

In the context of evolving dental materials and techniques and a national agenda to phasedown use of dental amalgam, estimates of dental amalgam placement are necessary for monitoring purposes.

Central sensitization (CS) and temporomandibular disorder (TMD) are both associated with insomnia. Therefore, the authors aimed to investigate whether insomnia was associated with more symptoms of CS...

A recent systematic review with meta-analysis indicated that a high percentage of dentists still intervene too invasively on carious lesions. Therefore, less invasive therapies and more conservative...

To help dentists and dental teams, the FDI World Dental Federation's Dental Practice Committee has developed guidelines outlining the etiology, signs and symptoms, prevention methods, diagnosis and...
