A comparative analysis of public and private dental benefit payer types for the provision and outcomes of root canal therapy on permanent teeth of children and adolescents (February 2023 Article 3)

JADA February 2023

Background.
Despite substantial increases in dental benefits and improvements in the use of dental services among children and adolescents in the United States, oral health disparities according to dental insurance payer type persist.

Keywords. 
Access to care; dental use; Medicaid; dental insurance; pediatric dentistry; endodontic treatment outcomes.

Fracture resistance of defective amalgam restorations repaired with a resin-based composite material (February 2023 Article 2)

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.

Caries risk and social determinants of health (February 2023 Article 1)

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.

Clinical and pathologic factors associated with the relapse of fibrous gingival hyperplasia (December 2022 Article 3)

JADA December 2022

Background.
The association between clinicopathologic characteristics and the relapse of fibrous gingival hyperplasia is unknown.

Keywords.
Gingival diseases; fibrous epulis; recurrence.

Twelve-month randomized controlled trial of 38% silver diamine fluoride with or without potassium iodide in indirect pulp capping of young permanent molars (December 2022 Article 2)

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.

Dental restorative materials containing quaternary ammonium compounds have sustained antibacterial action (December2022 Article 1)

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.
