  • Recent perspectives vis-á-vis the biological basis of tooth
           eruption

    • Abstract: A thorough understanding of recent advancements regarding the molecular interactions responsible for tooth eruption is indispensable to all dental specialties and may provide insight for treating clinical eruption disorders. The biological processes responsible for tooth eruption have long been a matter of debate. Several types of cells of dental origin and numerous molecular factors that were believed to be responsible for this process have repeatedly been considered and investigated. Most existing eruption theories have concentrated on selective cells or processes as the sole generating forces of tooth eruption. This article reviews previously proposed eruption theories, in the light of significant advances in the understanding that the sequential interactions between dental epithelium and ectomesenchymal cells pattern the initiating cascade of the eruption process. These findings are presented in the context of tooth development within the milieu of a changing bony socket. Understanding the process of tooth eruption in this framework points to the fact that tooth eruption is essentially a stage of tooth development which, through selective resorption and deposition of bone, allows the developing tooth to be displaced through the alveolar bone to its position of function in the oral cavity.
       
  • Assessment of dose-width products of pre-programmed exposure technique
           parameters in panoramic dental radiology: A comparison of methodologies

    • Abstract: The dose width product (DWP) at the receiving slit of a panoramic dental unit is indicative of the radiation dose a patient receives in a panoramic dental examination. It is a useful tool for assessing the pre-programmed exposure technique settings of a dental unit. Panoramic units are equipped with these parameters, but the radiation doses delivered to patients when these programs are activated are not well defined. This study assesses DWPs of pre-programmed exposure technique parameters at the receiving slit of a panoramic unit, using Gafchromic XRQA2 film which progressively darkens when exposed to radiation, and a pencil ionization chamber, which gives a direct readout of the DWP when an exposure is initiated. The exposed film is scanned into a desktop computer and the extent of colour change analysed with a free Java image processing program. The maximum percentage difference between the two methods for DWP estimation was less than 13%, consequently, Gafchromic XRQA2 film is regarded as suitable for DWP assessment in panoramic dental procedures. Although the DWPs of some of these exposure technique charts exceeded the recommended diagnostic reference level (DRL) of 65m Gymm; they were similar to published data from other researchers.
       
  • The effect of pre-etching of dentine, cut and uncut enamel on the shear
           bond strength of silorane-based and methacrylate-based composite resin
           systems

    • Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Modern composites are exceptional physically and aesthetically, but success is dependent on effective bonding to tooth structures, possibly enhanced by phosphoric acid pre-etching. AIMS: To determine the effect pre-etching of tooth surfaces has on the shear bond strengths of silorane-based and of methacrylate-based composite resin systems METHOD: To 120 recently extracted human molars and pre-molars, composite resin stubs were bonded with Silorane System Adhesive or Scotchbond Universal, to pre-etched or to non-pre-etched tooth surfaces, using an Ultradent jig. After thermocycling, each specimen was debonded under a shear force, in an Instron Universal testing machine (crosshead speed 0.5mm/minute. RESULTS: Data were subjected to an analysis of variance and when significant, to pairwise comparisons. The silorane-based system achieved significantly higher mean shear bond strengths (MPa) on pre-etched surfaces of: uncut enamel (15.204 vs 9.424), cut enamel (21.352 vs 12.110) and dentine (19.787 vs 8.278). Methacrylate-based bonds to pre-etched uncut enamel were significantly stronger (28.898 vs 18.451). Pre-etching cut enamel enhanced the bond (20.548 vs 16.384, not significant). Pre-etched dentine recorded lower mean bond strengths (15.288 vs 19.645) also not significantly CONCLUSIONS: The effect of pre-etching on the shear bond strength to uncut enamel, cut enamel, and dentine was product-specific.
       
  • Perceived stress among dental students at the University of the Western
           Cape

    • Abstract: INTRODUCTION: A high prevalence of stress among dental students has been reported. AIM: To determine perceived stress among dental students at the University of the Western Cape. METHOD: A self-administered questionnaire to students (n=411) was used to collect data. Variables measured included demographic characteristics of students and their perceived stress in the dental environment using the Dental Environment Stress (DES) survey and the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI). RESULTS: The response rate was 78%. Respondents were in the 18 to 21 age category; mostly female (n=207); multilingual, with 63% having English as their home language. Huge problems identified from the DES were lack of time for relaxation, inadequate breaks during the day, fear of failing a year or module, work load, inconsistency between clinical supervisors and patients being late for appointments. The MBI found high EE (28.91), low DP (7.13) and high PA (30.06) scores. Fourth year students experienced the highest degree of stress on the DES and MBI. CONCLUSION: Stressors identified are consistent with international dental literature. Levels of stress increased over the academic years and peaked in the fourth year. Stressors experienced may impact student academic and future professional development, motivating a need for intervention at Faculty level.
