Printing technologies, both 2D and 3D, have gained considerable interest during the last years for manufacturing of personalized dosage forms, tailored to each patient. Here we review the research work on 2D printing techniques, mainly inkjet printing, for manufacturing of film-based oral dosage forms. We describe the different printing techniques and give an overview of film-based oral dosage for...

We aimed to evaluate whether radiotherapy causes changes in the mineral composition, hardness, and morphology of enamel and dentin of primary teeth.
To evaluate the knowledge and attitude of families having some Down syndrome patient about problems related to oral cavity and dental health issues.
Locoregional recurrence accounts for majority of the treatment failures in oral cancer patients. Current study aimed to determine the predictors of recurrence and survival in patients with biopsy proven Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) of the oral cavity. This study included 88 patients of squamous cell carcinoma treated at our institution from 2007 till 2013. Primary intervention was surgery in all ...
To determine the pain of single versus multiple visit endodontic treatment after obturation in teeth with necrotic pulps and infected canals.
Angina Bullosa Haemorrhagica (ABH) is a benign lesion of the oral cavity categorized by sudden onset of single or multiple blood filled lesions that burst leaving an ulcer that usually heals in 7-10 days without leaving a scar. We report a case of ABH diagnosed on the basis of history, clinical examination and blood, renal and liver function tests. The case findings and its management is discussed...
Most patients who file a formal complaint against a dentist do so by way of the law concerning complaints. In 2017 the law concerning complaints was changed radically, with the intention of making the law easier for the patient to make use of and providing the patient with a financial settlement. This article considers the extent to which the possibility of being compensated has had the effect of ...
Clinical microbiology now occupies an important place in periodontics and oral implant dentistry as a supplementary diagnostic tool and in planning treatment, particularly with respect to the rational use of antibiotics. This view is in line with the emphatic call by the World Health Organization and the European Union for the prudent use of antibiotics due to the global increase in resistance to ...
The aim of this research was to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of an orthodontic treatment with clear-aligner systems, specifically with Invisalign®. In addition to a review of the literature, 4 orthodontists and 9 patients treated with fixed orthodontic therapy and Invisalign® were interviewed. The literature showed that it is difficult to correct an extrusion, rotation or overjet wi...
Clinical and radiographic evaluation of the efficacy of sodium hypochlorite as a haemostatic agent compared with physiologic saline on the success of calcium hydroxide pulpotomies in primary molars: an in vivo study.
To evaluate, via clinical and radiographic assessment; the success of calcium hydroxide pulpotomies with the application of 5% sodium hypochlorite as a haemostatic agent compared with physiologic saline in primary molars and to evaluate if there is improved efficacy of increased concentration of sodium hypochlorite application in calcium hydroxide pulpotomies.
Surgical navigation system (SNS) has been an important tool in surgery. However, the complicated and tedious manual selection of fiducial points on preoperative images for registration affects operational efficiency to large extent. In this study, an oral and maxillofacial navigation system named BeiDou-SNS with automatic identification of fiducial points was developed and demonstrated.
The aim of this study is to examin the association between anxiety/depressive tendency and oral health-related quality of life in inpatients of convalescent wards. This cross-sectional study included inpatients of convalescent wards (age range 34-100 years). Data on age, sex, functional independence measure, number of teeth, odontotherapy status, and primary disease for which hospitalization was ...
The current study aimed to investigate the effects of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and stromal cell-derived factor-1α (SDF-1α) overexpressing dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) in vascularized dental pulp regeneration in vivo.
To characterize the radiographic dental phenotype of individuals with SATB2-associated syndrome (SAS).
The aim of this study was to evaluate microbiological changes, oral soft tissue toxicity, and caries-preventive effect of an experimental titanium tetrafluoride (TiF) varnish compared with a commercially available fluoride varnish (NaF), using in situ and in vivo models.

Despite the importance of immune checkpoints in immunotherapy, the prognostic value of these molecules remains controversial in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). We performed a systematic review to investigate the prognostic significance of the immune checkpoints in OSCC.
Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is the most common malignant cancer with high mortality rates in advanced stages. Recent studies have shown that the expression of ALPK1 mRNA and its inhibitory differentiation function are associated with cancer progression. However, the expression and clinicopathological features of ALPK1 in OSCC remain unexplored. Here we investigated the expression patterns ...
