Occlusion principles for the practising dentist in the digital age

July 1, 2020

What do dentists want to know about occlusion? Occlusion may appear complicated because of the multiple factors involved, such as teeth, muscles and the temporomandibular joints (TMJs). It can also be confusing, owing to imprecise terminology and philosophies of occlusion.

Dentine hypersensitivity experience using toothpaste with added bioglass: A clinical trial

April 8, 2020

In our clinical practices, dentine hypersensitivity (DH) has always been a challenge. Our best approach was to suggest at-home solutions such as sensitivity toothpaste or mouthrinse, but often there was no significant relief experienced by our patients. Last year, we met Richard Whatley, CEO of BioMin Technologies, who gave us some samples of BioMin F toothpaste for provision of relief from DH, and he explained the technology behind the effectiveness of this novel bioactive glass-based toothpaste. The bioglass particles contained in BioMin F toothpaste adhere to dental hard tissue and then slowly dissolve in saliva to release calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions, which precipitate on nucleation sites as fluorapatite crystals to occlude open dentinal tubules.
