Fabrication of mouthguards should be performed properly. However, the appropriate heating temperature for fabricating a pressure-formed mouthguard has not been determined. The aim of this study was to examine the influence of the heating temperature on the fabrication of a pressure-formed mouthguard.

As reported in the literature by several authors, there is a great variation between countries in terms of etiology and patterns of mandibular fractures. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of mandibular fractures at the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Unit, “Dr. Domingo Luciani” Hospital, Venezuela during the period January 2010 to March 2013.

Prevalence and incidence of diabetes is increasing and many dental trauma patients today have diabetes. The implications of delayed wound healing, associated with diabetes mellitus, on oral mucosal wound healing has not been investigated extensively. The aim of this study was to investigate the implications of diabetes mellitus on the cellular, vascular, and fibroblastic changes induced by laceration on the oral mucosa of Wistar rats.

Coronal fractures of the anterior teeth are common sequelae of traumatic dental injuries. Reattachment of fractured tooth fragments using dental adhesive techniques offers some advantages, including restoration of the function, aesthetics, shape, texture and brightness of the surface. The present report describes a clinical case of reattachment with a 4-year clinical and radiographic follow-up in a permanent maxillary central incisor with an uncomplicated crown fracture. Fragment reattachment is a conservative procedure, preserving aesthetics and functionality, and it can provide an immediate positive emotional response from the patient.

Mouthguard thickness is important for the prevention from orofacial trauma during sports. However, it is difficult to maintain the necessary thickness after forming the mouthguard. The aim of this study was to evaluate a pressure-forming method using a single mouthguard sheet.

There are numerous treatment options following Traumatic Dental Injury (TDI). Systematic reviews of different treatments are challenging owing to the diversity of outcomes reported between clinical studies. This issue could be addressed through the development and implementation of a agreed and standardised collection of outcomes known as a Core Outcome Set (COS). The aim of this study was to develop a COS for TDI in children and adults. The secondary aim was to establish what, how, when and by whom these outcomes should be measured.

Traumatic Dental Injuries occur frequently among young children. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of traumatic dental injuries on oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) in preschool children using the Scale of Oral Health Outcomes for 5-year-old children (SOHO-5).

Tooth avulsion consists of the complete displacement of a tooth from the alveolar socket. When immediate replantation is not possible, the avulsed tooth should be kept in a storage medium capable of maintaining the viability of periodontal ligament (PDL) cells on the root surface. However, there is no consensus on the best storage medium able to prevent sequels such as ankylosis and tooth resorption. The aim of this study was to perform a systematic review to evaluate the in vivo effectiveness of different storage media for avulsed teeth.

Population-based studies that investigate the impact of TDI on oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) among school children and its association to socioeconomic factors are scarce and offer conflicting results. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of TDI on OHRQoL among school children and its association to socioeconomic status.
