Mechanized instrumentation of root canals oscillating systems
Cleaning and shaping are important steps in the root canal treatment. Despite the technological advances in endodontics, K and Hedströen files are still widely used. In an attempt to be more effective in preparing the root ...
Cutting characteristics of dental diamond burs made with CVD technology
The aim of this study was to determine the cutting ability of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) diamond burs coupled to an ultrasonic dental unit handpiece for minimally invasive cavity preparation. One standard cavity was ...
Scanning electron microscope assessment of several resharpening techniques on the cutting edges of gracey curettes
Aim: Treatment of periodontal diseases is based on efficient scaling and root planing (SRP) and adequate maintenance of the patient. The effectiveness of SRP is influenced by operator skill, access to the subgingival area, ...
Influence of the power level of an ultra-sonic system on dental cavity preparation
The aim of this study was to evaluate the shape of dental cavities made with the CVDentus® system using different ultrasound power levels. One standard cavity was made on the buccal aspect of 15 bovine incisors with a ...
A modified method of immediate occlusal loading using a reinforced framework denture: A case report
The technique presented in this article presents a protocol for treatment that reduces the time required for the fabrication and placement of an implant supported prosthesis. It also offers improved patient comfort at a ...
