New titles registered at the Cochrane Oral Health Group

The Cochrane Oral Health Group Editorial Team met on Monday afternoon and agreed to register two new titles:

Orthodontic treatment for bimaxillary proclination

This topic has been registered by a team based in London, Greece and at the Bahrain Branch of the UK Cochrane Centre. It will compare headgear, transpalatal arches and temporary anchorage devices and look at the evidence of the effectiveness of each.

Assisted design / Computer assisted manufacture (CAD/CAM) in anterior and posterior teeth

This clinically important topic has been registered by a team based at the College of Dentistry, New York University. It will consider whether restorations manufactured using computer-assisted images are more successful than those made conventionally.

The Oral Health Group looks forward to publishing both protocols and working with these teams.
