Aim of the study was to evaluate the long-term reliability and effectiveness of inlays and onlays in ceramic and composite material, examining scientific studies published from 2004 to 2013. The results of this review were analyzed and compared with the important literature review proposed by Manhart in 2004.

The aim of this study was the clinical and radiological evaluation in severe mandibular atrophy (class V-VI Cadwood-Howell) of bone grafts with homologous fresh frozen bone (FFB) in patients with dysesthesia of the inferior alveolar nerve with or without transposition of the NAI in order to perform a proper implant-prosthetic rehabilitation.

The difficulties in reaching a good level of oral hygiene in young babies can be partly overcome with the use of baby oral wipes, which have been shown to effectively remove plaque from deciduous teeth. The presence of fluoride and calcium in these wipes could also prevent further demineralisation of the teeth, as well as promote remineralisation. The aim of this study is, therefore, was to analyze the preventive effect of OW containing F and CaGP on cariogenic demineralization in vitro.

Tooth extraction is a very common procedure in oral surgery. Despite this, very little information is available in the literature as to the antibiotic management of the patient. The aim of this study is to evaluate whether the antibiotic prophylaxis could be beneficial in preventing post- extraction local complications and whether the use of a probiotic could help reduce the antibiotic gastro-intestinal side effects.

Mouth breathing in childhood can compromise the dental occlusion and, consequently, the functions performed by the stomatognathic system. The purpose of this systematic review was to evaluate which is the highest prevalence of dental malocclusion in mouth breathing children.


The association between the oral microbiome and periodontal diseases is still unclear. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to quantify the association between the specific pathogens and periodontitis.


Adamantiades-Behçet disease is a primary systemic vasculitis of unknown origin, that may involve blood vessels of all sizes. The clinical hall-mark of Behçet Disease (BD) is oral aphtosis, which is often associated with genital aphtae and a variety of skin lesions. Less common manifestations of BD include thrombophlebitis, central nervous system and ocular inflammation which, however, may impact significant morbidity and mortality.


This retrospective study describes our experience in the management of odontogenic myxoma.


The aim of this paper was to identify the most important variables that predict the intensity of postoperative pain following lower third molar surgery.


Endodontic infections require the use of root canal dressings to reduce microorganisms, and studies of new intracanal medications are common. Two experimental intracanal medications that contain antibiotics and chlorhexidine have been proposed. However, given the composition of these medications, tooth discolouration with subsequent impacts on aesthetic parameters is a concern. The objective of this study is to evaluate tooth discolouration after the use of experimental intracanal medications for up to 180 days.
