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.

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.

Deep caries removal strategies (November 2022 Article 3)

JADA November 2022

Background.
The International Caries Consensus Collaboration (ICCC) has published recommendations on carious tissue removal to treat cavitated carious lesions in a manner that preserves hard tissue and retains teeth long term. This study quantifies The National Dental Practice-Based Research Network dentistsuse of selective caries removal.

Keywords.
Selective caries removal; adults; deep caries.

Assessment of dental health care personnel protocol deviations and self-contamination during personal protective equipment donning and doffing (November 2022 Article 2)

JADA November 2022

Background.
Dental health care personnel (DHCP) may be at increased risk of exposure to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, the virus that causes COVID-19, as well as other clini-cally important pathogens. Proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE) reduces occupational exposure to pathogens. The authors performed an assessment of PPE donning and doffing practices among DHCP, using a fluorescent marker as a surrogate for pathogen transmission.

Keywords.
Masks; eye protective devices; gloves, protective; health, occupational; dental infection control; COVID-19.
