Journal of Dental Research Special Issue: Interface Between Materials and Oral Biology

0 908

Alexandria, Va., USA — Understanding the way materials interact with tissues and organisms at the cellular and molecular levels, and at a variety of different size scales, is critical for advancing the development of this new generation of materials, as well as for enhancing existing biomaterials. The Journal of Dental Research (JDR) special issue “Interface Between Materials and Oral Biology” features research reports and critical reviews that highlight the complex interactions occurring between biomaterials and fluids, living cells, and tissues. The Editors of this special issue are Jack L. Ferracane and Luiz E. Bertassoni of the Oregon Health & Science University, OR, Portland, USA.

Dental Mitigation Strategies to Reduce Aerosolization of SARS-CoV-2

0 1531

Alexandria, Va., USA — Limiting infection transmission is central to the safety of all in dentistry, particularly during the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, yet many dental procedures unavoidably generate aerosols. In the study “Dental Mitigation Strategies to Reduce Aerosolization of SARS-CoV-2,” published in the Journal of Dental Research (JDR), researchers at the University of Leeds, England, UK used a ‘phantom head’ model to mimic dental procedures in a multifaceted approach to measure aerosol dispersal in a dental surgery setting and determine the potential of different mitigation strategies to reduce the infection risk to the dental team from bioaerosol exposure during routine dental procedures.
