Mensagem dos Autores

Motivados pelo desenvolvimento da Odontologia Legal no Brasil, os autores tiveram a iniciativa de agregar mais uma ferramenta de convergência da classe pericial odontológica com o intuito de divulgar notícias, eventos, trabalhos científicos, além de contribuir para a discussão e troca de experiências entre os praticantes da perícia odontolegal. Contamos com todos para tornarmos este Blog um centro de encontro e de crescimento profissional.

Ethics in the provision of removable partial dentures

Abstract

Aim: To investigate the construction of cobalt-chromium removable partial dentures by commercial private dental laboratories. Methods: Ninety master casts for fabrication of cobalt-chromium removable partial dentures were obtained from three commercial laboratories randomly selected. Casts were assessed for dental arch treated, Kennedy classification, cast surveying, denture design information provided by the dentist, and mouth preparation (rest seat, guiding plane and retentive area). Dental technicians answered a questionnaire regarding qualification of assisted dentists, monthly number of framework castings, and use of dental surveyor. Mouth preparation was compared among laboratories using Kruskal-Wallis test (α=0.05). Results: The percentage of Kennedy class I was 16%, class II 19%, class III 56%, and class IV 9%. The majority of master cats (51%) examined was sent to dental laboratories without any design information and did not comply with ethical guidelines in the provision of RPD. Approximately half of the casts were considered “inappropriate” for guiding planes and retentive areas. One of the laboratories presented all casts “inappropriate” for rest seat distribution (p<0.001). Conclusions: Mouth preparation frequently failed for guiding planes, retentive areas and distribution of rest seats. It is necessary to provide students with adequate clinical experience at the dental school environment, which will actually be carried into the practice of dentistry.

Perception of orthodontists regarding the management of root resorption – clinical and legal aspects

Abstract

Aim: To evaluate the management adopted by orthodontists regarding root resorption caused by orthodontic treatment, relating it to their time of experience and the applicable legal norms. Methods: the study population consisted of 56 orthodontists from the city of Belo Horizonte (Minas Gerais State), and the tool to collect the data was a questionnaire with open and closed questions. Data were subjected to descriptive analysis. The association between the variables was analyzed by the chi-square test with significance level of 5%. Results: 57.6% of professionals temporarily interrupt the treatment; in the prevention and/or control, most professionals (80.4%) perform initial and periodical radiographs (every six months). Among the professionals with less than 5 years of experience as a specialist, 88.9% usually make periodic radiographic control; 100% affirmed to file the documents. No significant difference was found between dentists with different times of experience regarding the practice of archiving the documents (p = 0.271). Among those with 5-15 years of experience, 77.4% perform periodic radiographic control and 45.2% had already detected root resorption. Among those with more than 15 years of experience, 71.4% usually perform the periodic radiographic control, and 85.7% had already faced some case of root resorption in the clinical practice. Conclusions: Although most orthodontists adopt a correct management facing the occurrence, prevention and control of root resorption associated with orthodontic treatment, the majority are unaware about existing legislation in our country.
