JADA February 2023

Background.
Oral health is influenced by social determinants of health (SDH), predisposing people and communities to greater risk of developing caries. This study evaluated the association between caries risk in adults and SDH such as ZIP Codes, systemic diseases, payment methods, and race or ethnicity.

Keywords. 
Caries risk assessment; social deprivation; big data; caries; systemic-oral connection.

Course Created on: 01/24/2023
/education/ViewCourse.aspx?id=724|104025
Description:

JADA February 2023

Background.
Repair is used to increase the longevity of defective restorations, such as large amalgams. The aim of this study was to investigate the fracture resistance and fracture modes of mesio-occlusodistal (MOD) amalgam molar restorations with extensive cuspal fracture repaired or replaced using a bulk-fill resin-based composite material.

Keywords. 
Amalgam repair; minimally invasive procedures; dental composite restoration.

Quantifying the risk of prosthetic joint infections after invasive dental procedures and the effect of antibiotic prophylaxis (January 2023 Article 2)
Member Price: $5.00
CE Credit(s): 1
Retail Price: $40.00
Course Created on: 01/04/2023
/education/ViewCourse.aspx?id=718|104016
Description:

JADA January 2023

Background.
Dentists face the expectations of orthopedic surgeons and patients with prosthetic joints to provide antibiotic prophylaxis (AP) before invasive dental procedures (IDPs) to reduce the risk of late periprosthetic joint infections (LPJIs), despite the lack of evidence associating IDPs with LPJIs, lack of evidence of AP efficacy, risk of AP-related adverse reactions, and potential for promoting antibiotic resistance. The authors aimed to identify any association between IDPs and LPJIs and whether AP reduces LPJI incidence after IDPs.

Keywords. 
Prosthetic joints; antibiotic prophylaxis; guidelines; prevention; dental procedures.

/education/ViewCourse.aspx?id=719|104017
Description:

JADA January 2023

Background.
Local anesthesia is essential for pain control in dentistry. The authors assessed the comparative effect of local anesthetics on acute dental pain after tooth extraction and in patients with symptomatic irreversible pulpitis.

Keywords. 
Short-acting local anesthetics; lidocaine; mepivacaine; articaine; long-acting local anesthetics; bupivacaine; benzocaine; post tooth extraction acute pain; symptomatic irreversible pulpitis.

Dental restorative materials containing quaternary ammonium compounds have sustained antibacterial action (December2022 Article 1)
Member Price: $5.00
CE Credit(s): 1
Retail Price: $40.00
Course Created on: 12/01/2022
/education/ViewCourse.aspx?id=712|104021
Description:

JADA December 2022

Background.
This narrative review addresses dental restorative materials with sustained anti-bacterial action, especially those containing quaternary ammonium compounds. Secondary caries occurs around restorations, causing further loss of mineral and breakdown of the restoration. Lesions adjacent to restorations account for more than 40% of needed restorations. Restorative materials with antibacterial properties will potentially solve this problem.

Keywords.
Caries prevention; antibacterial restorative materials; secondary caries; quaternary ammonium compounds.

JADA December 2022

Background.
The clinical and radiographic effectiveness of 38% silver diamine fluoride (SDF) with and without potassium iodide (KI) was tested and compared with resin-modified glass ionomer cement (RMGIC) in indirect pulp capping of deep carious lesions in young permanent molars.

Keywords.
Silver diamine fluoride; potassium iodide; resin-modified glass ionomer cement; indirect pulp capping; permanent molars; marginal staining; and secondary caries.

Intraoral Appliances: An American Dental Association Clinical Evaluators (ACE) Panel Survey

Overview
Innovations in intraoral appliances have led to an increase in the number of conditions for which these appliances can be used as an effective treatment. Improvements in these technologies have allowed dentists and their teams to tackle more conditions than ever before. Which intraoral appliances are dentists providing? Who is involved in each step of the fabrication process? Learn the answers to the these questions and more!
