Lack of training hinders best practice - While stainless-steel crowns (SSCs) are recommended for restorative treatment of teeth severely affected by caries, fractures or dental developmental disorders, they are not widely used. A new NIOM study among Norwegian and Finnish dentists explores why.
Is blue light damaging to our skin? - Blue light beams at us during procedures at the clinic, from the screens we watch between patients, and from our ever present mobile phones. Recently we have seen cosmetic companies selling creams marketed towards blue-light damage. But can blue light really damage the skin, and if so- how?
New teeth- straight from the lab? - The dental community has long been fascinated by the thought of growing a third set of teeth. According to Nils Jacobsen and colleagues’ recent overview article on the subject, the past 40 years of research has seen great strides towards this goal. There have been several key breakthroughs, based heavily on knowledge acquired in stem cell research.

Survival of primary molars with pulpotomy interventions: public oral health practice-based study in Helsinki - The study concludes: "The estimated survival time of pulpotomized primary molars is affected by dental operator- related factors, which should be considered in management of extensively carious primary molars of paediatric patients, both at the clinical and organizational decision-making levels. An increased focus on the use of SSC is recommended to be in the learning objectives of dental education programs.
Luting cements in a nutshell - Choosing luting cements can be challenging given the constant development of resin cements and ceramic materials for indirect restorations. This review article gathers the most commonly used luting cements in current dental practice, focusing particularly on these cements’ composition and properties, which have an impact on their clinical indication. The article includes adhesive and non-adhesive […]
The influence of the resin- based cement layer on ceramic-dentin bond strength - The purpose of the study was to measure the cement thickness obtained when ceramic rods were luted to dentin and to analyze the relation between cement thickness and the previously published tensile bond strength of similar test specimens. In addition, the ISO standard 4049:2019 method was used to determine the film thickness of the used […]
