BRISBANE, Australia: Ensuring the formation of a solid soft-tissue seal at the dental abutment surface is crucial for protecting the underlying tissue from the microbial-rich oral environment. In recent years, nanotechnology has been increasingly applied in dentistry. Now, researchers from the University of Queensland have applied titania nanopores (TNPs) to the surface of titanium. The aim of the research is to modify dental implants with nanopores in order to enhance soft-tissue integration and wound healing.
LEEDS, UK: Though the role of dental fillings in the treatment of dental caries in permanent dentition is well established, the same cannot be said about primary dentition, as their usefulness is still debatable. A new study has cast further doubt on their role, suggesting that there is no evidence that conventional fillings are more effective in stopping the progress of caries in children.
