Precise bonding of attachments in aligner treatment is crucial to achieve the intended tooth movement. Thus, we evaluated five different bonding protocols for attachments used in aligner treatments wi...
To investigate the mechanical effects during en-mass retraction of maxillary anterior teeth with clear aligner using three-dimensional finite element method. Cone-beam CT (CBCT) was used to scan a fe...
Reproduction affects the general health of women, especially when parity is high. The relationship between parity and oral health is not as clear, although it is a widespread customary belief that pre...
The egg tooth is a vital structure allowing hatchlings to escape from the egg. In squamates (snakes and lizards), the egg tooth is a real tooth that develops within the oral cavity at the top of the u...
Different light sources have been used during the dental bleaching procedures. More recently, a violet LED system was introduced as a promising and viable light source, which is capable to promote den...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of Clear Aligners to correct tooth malocclusions with the use of attachments and/or buttons, as determined by the amount of teeth mo...
This is a 30 day randomized, parallel comparative trial where participants with tooth shade of C2 or darker will be assigned to one of five groups. The participants will be evaluated for t...
Study title: The Efficacy and Safety of tooth bleaching procedure using Y10 Whitening toothpaste and RF current The Device: The Brighttonix Y10 Tooth Whitening system is indicated for use...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of REMEWHITE on tooth whitening.
Development of white spot lesions (enamel demineralization) will be evaluated quantitatively during clear aligner orthodontic treatment compared to conventional fixed appliances using quan...
Chemicals that are used to oxidize pigments in TEETH and thus effect whitening.
An adenocarcinoma characterized by the presence of varying combinations of clear and hobnail-shaped tumor cells. There are three predominant patterns described as tubulocystic, solid, and papillary. These tumors, usually located in the female reproductive organs, have been seen more frequently in young women since 1970 as a result of the association with intrauterine exposure to diethylstilbestrol.

The pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes. It is differentiated from TOOTH ATTRITION in that this type of wearing away is the result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It differs also from TOOTH EROSION, the progressive loss of the hard substance of a tooth by chemical processes not involving bacterial action. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p2)
The wearing away of a tooth as a result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It is chiefly associated with aging. It is differentiated from TOOTH ABRASION (the pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by friction, as brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes) and from TOOTH EROSION (the loss of substance caused by chemical action without bacterial action).

The upper part of the tooth, which joins the lower part of the tooth (TOOTH ROOT) at the cervix (TOOTH CERVIX) at a line called the cementoenamel junction. The entire surface of the crown is covered with enamel which is thicker at the extremity and becomes progressively thinner toward the cervix. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p216)
