The most common cause of an unaesthetic smile is Dental fluorosis which leads to discoloration of the teeth due to staining. The staining of the incisor and cuspids gives a disagreeable and unaesthetic smile which ranges from mild-to-moderate fluorosis stains and tobacco stains. To overcome these problems, a minimally invasive approach, Enamel Microabrasion can be considered which not only enhances esthetics but also leads to minimal enamel loss. Due to the abrasive effect of the material, there

Deviation of apical foramen from the long axis of the anatomic apex is often undetectable on periapical radiographs. Use of electronic apex locators (EALs) in such cases might be prudent. Conflicting results have been reported regarding the influence of the position of an apical foramen in relation to the anatomic apex on the accuracy of EALs. This study was designed to shed further light on this potential influence. Fifty-six extracted human maxillary and mandibular molars were decoronated at t

Despite successful cleft palate surgery, 10 to 30% of patients may experience abnormal speech resonance, most notably hypernasal resonance as a result of the velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI). Surgery remains the most effective means of correcting VPI and among the popular procedures are sphincter pharyngoplasty. The purpose of this study is to compare speech hypernasality after sphincter pharyngoplasty in the management of cleft-related VPI. The study reviewed patients with velopharyngeal insu

Several methods of using teeth to estimate age at death are based on macroscopic, microscopic, and biochemical analyses of teeth. In addition to being very complex and expensive, microscopic and biochemical, methods destroy dental tissue and therefore make it impossible to use dental findings for further studies. The purpose of this article is to review the non-destructive methods of estimating the age of remains through teeth for immature people by examining the evolution of the dental system a

The new Bioceramic “Cerafill” root canal sealer launched in the market with a lack of the knowledge about its physical properties. This study aimed to evaluate its properties as compared with the old version “iRoot”. The fresh past of each sealer was subjected to setting time test. The set discs were immersed in deionized water to determine solubility%, pH changes, calcium ions (Ca++) released after 1, 7, 14 and 28 days. The flowabilty and film thickness of each sealer wa

Retraction of the gingival tissue is a well-known procedure. It is the displacement of the gingiva's margins away from a tooth. A restoration's marginal fit is affected by periodontal variables in terms of quality. The purpose of this systematic review was to determine the efficacy of diode lasers as compared to conventional retraction cords. A systematic literature review from 2010 to 2023 was performed using databases such as PubMed, Medline, and ScienceDirect. PRISMA flowchart was use

It is crucial to emphasize that using these permanent luting cement, especially those reinforced with resin (such as resin-modified glass ionomer cement and resin-based types of cement), can have several clinical benefits. In particular, the low cement solubility can reduce the risk of pulp damage and reduce secondary caries. A systematic literature review from 2000 to 2023 was performed using PubMed, Medline, and ScienceDirect databases. All adhesives exhibited a substantial decline in SBS duri

Endodontically treated and repaired teeth are often worried about fractures. Endodontic therapy is known to reduce the flexibility of teeth, which in turn reduces their resistance to fracture. During the construction of access cavities and endodontic treatment, it results from the drying of tooth structure and the loss of a significant amount of dentin and significant anatomical components such as cusps, marginal ridges, and the pulp chamber roof. The longevity of teeth that have had endodontic
