Oral Biofilm and Its Impact on Oral Health, Psychological and Social Interaction

Gedif Meseret Abebe

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: March 12, 2021

Oral health can be act as “mirror” that indicate and reflect the overall health condition, life style and oral hygiene. Oral cavity harbours arrays of microorganisms that interact with diet, oral environment, and host. This complex dynamic interaction results in microbial colonization and the subsequent oral biofilm formation. Oral biofilms are highly ordered, surface-associated assemblages of microorganisms embedded in an extracellular matrix. These surface-attached microbial communities ar...

Two Case Reports of C-Shaped Mandibular Premolars with Three and Four Root Canals

Mohammed Sarhan Alzahrani

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: February 11, 2021

Commonly, the mandibular premolars’ root canal system is complex and usually requires special management skills in root canal treatment. The occurrence of three root canals in the mandibular first premolar is relatively uncommon. Furthermore, the four root canals in the second premolar are extremely rare and clinically quite challenging to manage. Proper knowledge of the root canal anatomy and delicate radiographic interpretation and clinical inspection is essential for successful root canal t...

Influence of Access Cavity Design on Fatigue Resistance of Reciproc Blue: Conservative vs. Truss Access

Giacomo Corsentino

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: February 10, 2021

Several factors including the access to the root canal systems could influence the fatigue of rotating or reciprocating endodontic instruments. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of conservative (CAC) and truss access cavity (TAC) preparation on the cyclic fatigue resistance of endodontic nickel-titanium (NiTi) files. A total of sixty extracted human intact mandibular molars were selected and assigned to CAC or TAC group (n = 30). All samples received root canal treatment. A total of...

The Importance of Reducing the Viral Load in the Oral Cavity

Michelle Moron Araújo

Article Type: Short Report | First Published: February 06, 2021

Coronavirus infection has been considered by the WHO (World Health Organization) as a global pandemic. Since its origin, it has posed a threat to global health, not so much because of its symptoms, but because of its rapid spread, contagion and the respiratory complications that it produces in patients with other chronic underlying conditions. The oral cavity has a high viral load, which is very important for oral hygiene and all biosafety protocols. In this year 2020, the world population has b...
