Planning the treatment of a compromised tooth is challenging but the choice should refer to evidence-based criteria. The Literature proved that patient-related factors influence the treatment plan, but what happens when the patient is a dentist? Aim of the study was to observe whether the dentist goes for the same option suggested to a patient in a hypothetical scenario.

Avulsion of the permanent teeth is one of the most serious forms of traumatic dental injuries, which endangers the patients' quality of life. Therefore, the fast and proper treatment is crucial. In this case report we will discuss the supportive and definitive functional treatment and correct rehabilitation. The traumatic force can cause complex oral and maxillofacial injuries, which comprehensive treatment constitutes a major challenge for the dentist. Here we review functional restoration of dental injuries and their definitive aesthetic solution. Orv Hetil. 2017; 158(33): 1314-1318.

An innovative abutment system has recently been developed to address the well-known limitations of screw- and cement-retained implant restorations. This abutment system offers retrievability by replacing the cement layer with a precision-engineered nickel-titanium sleeve that switches between shapes that lock and unlock the prosthesis. The avoidance of cement precludes cement-related periimplant complications, while the elimination of occlusal screw access holes may enable predictable control over occlusion and improve the structural integrity of the prosthesis. By eliminating the need for cement clean up, occlusal access closure, and occlusal adjustments after insertion, the dentist is afforded more time to attend to the patient’s general needs. This paper describes the design rationale for and clinical treatment using this novel abutment system.

The restoration of proximal surface cavities, originating from Class II carious lesions, to “normal” anatomical specifications is a fundamental objective for the dental practitioner. Cognitive interpretation of tooth morphology attained from evidence-based resources, together with the necessary psychomotor skills for correct design and completion, are considered essential strategies for restoration success. Also, the visualization of the original tooth structure, if present, should substantially benefit the dentist in the creation of a clinically satisfactory restoration. The purpose of this evidence-based review is to define the cause and effect of decisions based on optimum treatment standards of care for the patient. The concepts of form and function, as related to the oral environment, and the consequences of unsatisfactory dental restorative care will be scrutinized. This article will identify and explain the different challenges and solutions for restoration of dental proximal lesions and provide an overview of past, present, and future procedures.

This article describes a model of opiate risk stratification with a special focus on dentistry and oral surgery. A brief overview covers the scope of the US opioid abuse and misuse epidemic, and the role of the dentist in mitigating the problems of diversion and misuse of controlled substances. The expanding role of dentistry is summarized. An assessment outlines gathering critical risk information, screening questionnaires, access to state prescription monitoring programs, and communication with cotreating providers. Special populations are discussed. Barriers and possible solutions for effective implementation of these strategies are summarized.

For the general dentist, the use of botulinum toxin type A (BTA) confers the ability to exert control over the soft tissues surrounding the mouth to better create a harmonious smile. The injection of BTA into the facial musculature requires a level of finesse to achieve the desired outcomes. A sound understanding of the toxin’s mechanism of action and the ability to manage potential complications are also necessary, as the dentist administering BTA must be competent to the same level as other providers who have traditionally been the gatekeepers of such agents.
