Tobacco harm reduction core element of periodontal therapy, says head doctor


FRANKFURT AM MAIN, Germany: Experts are calling for the integration of tobacco harm reduction (THR) strategies into dental care. Prof. Dirk Ziebolz, head doctor at University of Leipzig Medical Center in Germany, says that dental professionals in the EU are in a position to inform their patients about THR, but are currently lacking knowledge on the subject. When it comes to regulatory support, health authorities in the US are pushing ahead with the cautious adoption of THR products, but those in the EU have been accused of showing a failure of innovation and courage by omitting them from policy-making.

Reduced radiation dose in maxillofacial radiology yields comparable diagnostic results, study says


MALMÖ, Sweden: Radiographic diagnostics are widely used in healthcare as they provide diagnostically important information that can help improve treatment outcomes. For example, a CBCT scanning protocol is a valuable examination tool in oral and maxillofacial radiology and is readily available in dental offices because of its ease of use. However, a CBCT scan produces a relatively high radiation dose compared with other scanning protocols, and new research has shown that its effectiveness remains unchanged after reducing the radiation dose to one-fifth of the manufacturer-recommended level.

Study highlights how artificial intelligence can be used for detection of caries

To help rectify this, researchers from Charité—Universitätsmedizin Berlin have recently published the results of a randomised controlled trial they conducted. These results demonstrate that AI can increase the diagnostic accuracy of dentists.
