A quasi true experimental study was conducted among 90 tooth specimens cut from forty five extracted sound human premolar teeth. From each tooth two specimens were taken out from buccal and lingual surface. A diamond disc was used to cut a 4x4mm creating a cubic shape of six surfaces. Acid resistance varnish was applied to five surfaces leaving only the 4x4 mm enamel window uncovered. The specimens, totaling 90, were assigned randomly into six groups; each group composed of 15, control (not irradiated), and the other five groups irradiated at different times (4, 8, 12, 16 and 20 minutes) respectively. Low power diode (532 nm) 100 mw was used. After irradiation each specimen was put in a tube filled with 3ml of 1% citric acid for 24 hours. The amount of calcium dissolved was measured by using atomic absorption spectrophotometer. The data was statistically analyzed by SPSS version 17. The variables were compared by ANOVA test with the level of significance ( P < 0.05).

Digital orthodontics has reached fully computerized workflow as diagnosis, simulation, patient education, planning and production of appliance. Digitization started from records like digital 2D photos, 3D photos, digital cast models and CBCT. Digitalization save storage space, easier communication and provide more details were not possible by traditional means. Also, digital planning and simulation became easier. After development of accuratelaser scanners and 3D printers with accepted accuracy the dream of fully digital work flow became a reality. Unfortunately, any technology has some disadvantages as high equipmentâ€™s prices. 3D printing may be technique sensitive. so proper precautionsare required like proper design, support and suitable resin to avoid distortion of final product. The most popular simulation is digital diagnostic setup which is easier and faster and the most important point is possibility to transfer this simulation to patient mouth. Brackets can be digitally placed and software simulate just the aligning effect untilyou reach the final required results. Other way is to align teeth directly then software will place brackets in the position suitable for end result. Then transfer tray can be digitally designed. Before printing model or tray preparation is needed. Enough support for trays from non-fitting surface and model hollowingare needed. Resin material should be chosen according to printed object mission. For buccal transfer trays should be transparent. Appliances for casting should be resin wax. Models should be hard.

Statins like simvastatin (SIM) have demonstrated to have pleiotropic actions other than their conventional use as antilipidemic drugs. Also, nowadays natural scaffolds like platelets rich fibrin (PRF) showed promising results on bone regeneration. Aim This study compare the regenerative power of SIM and PRF added locally each as a sole filling material on induced bone defect and evaluate the combined effect using PRF loaded with SIM. Materials and methods: A critical size bone defect was induced in 48 male albino rats of average weight 150â€“200 g and were divided into 4 groups according to the filling material. Control, PRF, SIM, and SIM/PRF group. Each group was subdivided according to the sacrificing period into two subgroups (one and two-months postoperatively). Tibial specimens were evaluated histologically using H& E and masson trichrome (MT) special stain to detect areas of new bone formation, immunohistochemically using anti- BMP2 and anti-VEGF, Finally bone mineral density (BMD) at the bone defect area was analyzed using digital X-ray one and two-months postoperatively. Results: The percentage of newly formed bone increased significantly in the three groups vs the control group with the highest significant increase (p < 0.001) in the SIM/PRF group one month postoperatively. Also, SIM/ PRF group was the only group which showed significant bone maturation two-months postoperatively compared to the other groups. Immunohistochemical analysis showed significant increase in positively stained BMP-2 and VEGF expression (p < 0.001) in the three groups vs the control group with the highest significant increase (p < 0.001) in the SIM/PRF group. Digital X-ray results revealed the highest BMD percent change was found in the SIM/PRF group and showed complete bone healing twomonths postoperatively.

Laser is the acronym of â€œ Light Amplification of Stimulated Emission of Radiationâ€. Since the apparition of the first Laser device in 1960â€™s, its contribution in Medical field becomes more and more important. The first Laser dedicated to dentistry was introduced in 1989, and now we can distinguish 2 families of Laser devices according to their effects in Oral tissues:Soft tissue Lasers and Hard tissue Lasers. In this Presentation, we will focuse on the use of this 2 kind of lasers in Implantology and in Oral surgery, and to compare this technology to conventional treatment and to other technologies present in the dental world. 2 major wavelenghts will be described, 980nm Diode Laser nd 2940nm Er-Yag Laser. The aim of this lecture is to discuss the principle key factors to consider when using this 2 kind of wavelenghts in Implantology and hard tissue surgery. The use of laser technology is an alternative or adjunctive treatment to conventional therapy and it brings considerable benefits to dental clinical situations. It also shows advantages over conventional techniques when it is applied properly.

The orthodontic profession is undergoing a rapid and enormous growing phase with expansion in its approach towards interactive care. An increased number of adult patients in recent years have raised the need of interdisciplinary treatment to optimize the results. Orthodontic cases sometimes requires adjunctive procedures from other specialties such as prosthetic replacement of missing teeth, tooth build-up to match a Bolton discrepancy, periodontal rehabilitation, surgical exposure of an impacted tooth etc. Adjunctive Orthodontics involves an orthodontic treatment rendered as adjunct to other dental treatment procedures which involves tooth movement carried out to facilitate other dental procedures necessary to control disease, restore the function, or enhance esthetics. There are many areas where orthodontists are in close collaboration with other specialists such as prior to replacement of missing teeth, closure/consolidation of spaces for esthetic and periodontal improvement, intrusion or extrusion of certain teeth, correction of axial inclination of teeth, space maintenance and management of impacted teeth& special care provided in cleft & orthognathic cases. Therefore adjunctive orthodontic care is an integral part of comprehensive oral rehabilitation which is performed to optimize dentofacial esthetics and to improve function & hygiene potential of dentition This enables the best utilization of the skills and expertise of clinicians of different specialties for the best possible treatment outcome for the patient.

Periodontal disease is an inflammatory condition of the tissues of the periodontum in the mouth that affects up to 90% of the worldâ€™s population. It is a highly complex pathology that involves the actions of pathogenic bacteria and the host immune-inflammatory response. The standard periodontal treatment protocol focuses on the eradication of pathogenic biofilms through mechanical and antimicrobial means, including systemic antibiotics and antimicrobial mouthwashes. However, emerging antibiotic and antimicrobial resistance in oral biofilms has sparked increased interest in the potential of medicinal plants to treat periodontal pathologies. The last decade has seen a surge in the number of in vitro and in vivo studies on herbs traditionally used for their anti-bacterial properties in ethno-pharmacological applications.There is a clear need for alternative therapies for periodontal diseasethat are safe and effective. Can herbal medicines or medicinal plants offer a solution? Some modern chemical drugs were originally isolated from medicinal plants. Chemical drugs usually rely on a single active ingredient, whereas medicinal plants have complex phytochemical compositions that can work in synergy in vivo, and are more suited to addressing complex pathologies. It is harder to validate and understand the synergistic mechanisms of action of multiple plant compounds due to the complexity of their interactions. Despite this, promising evidence is mounting and is presented in this review to suggest that herbal medicines do indeed have a potentially significant role to play in the treatment and management of periodontal disease. This review concludes that more high quality studies on larger populations will be required to increase the scientific weight of evidence for use of herbal medicines to treat periodontal disease. It also advocates that these studies should specifically focus on the most promising plants already known from the existing research literature.

Previous research on periodontal structure and function has shown a significant relationship between periodontal tissue and teeth. This study assessed dentist's beliefs about the relative efficacy of the health of periodontal tissue. A total of 505 patients in general pracrice were asked to respond to a list of 25 obligatory nourishment for a child while going to have the first teeth, for its effectiveness in dealing with patient's periodontal health especially include chewing hard food. They were also asked to select the three most effective nutrition for periodontal tissue. The imdices of patient perceived importance of the periodontal health were derived and each compared with actual effectiveness as determined from a sample of 250 patients. Although the majority of patient's rated 18 of 25 nutrition as being very effective, there was no significant association between patient perceived nourishment effectiveness and actual effectiveness. The implications for patient training are discussed.

PTTN is a facial or oral pain following injury to the trigeminal nerve , with Other symptoms and/or clinical signs of trigeminal nerve dys-function. Clinically, there are positive and/ornegativeneurologicalsigns and symptoms, and these are hall mark of PTTN.The incidence following injuries to the peripheral branches of the trigeminal nerve following implants, 3rd molar extractions, orthognathic surgery, mid-face fractures and root canal therapy is around 3-5%. In more tan half of general cases in neuropathic pain, itislocalized and affects a specific, clearly circumscribed area of the body (LNP).In which the starting point of the algorithmis a diagnosis of LNP and there is consensus that first-line treatment should be a topical analgesic agent. A systemicagent (e.g. gabapentin, pregabalin, duloxetin) isneedtoaddedifthereisonly a partial response, orsubstitutedifthereis no response.Reports in PTTN cases havefound a 11% to 46% prevalence of patients with autonomic features (redness / swelling), some of the specific signs that significantly differentiate CRPS from non-CRPS neuropathicpain. Thepossible diagnosis of facial CRPS iscontentious. Whilst edema, and abnormalbloodflow in the skin are observed in PTTN, criticalfeaturesof CRPS suchtrophicchanges, skin atrophy, and motor disturbances are rare.The aim of this conference is to establish diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines in PTTN from localized neuropathic painto complex regional pain syndrome.

Dental implants are a common treatment for the loss of teeth. This paper summarizes current knowledge on implant surfaces, immediate loading versus conventional loading, short implants, sinus lifting, and custom implants using three-dimensional printing. Most of the implant surface modifications showed good osseointegration results. Regarding biomolecular coatings, which have been recently developed and studied, good results were observed in animal experiments. Immediate loading had similar clinical outcomes compared to conventional loading and can be used as a successful treatment because it has the advantage of reducing treatment times and providing early function and aesthetics. Short implants showed similar clinical outcomes compared to standard implants. A variety of sinus augmentation techniques, grafting materials, and alternative techniques, such as tilted implants, zygomatic implants, and short implants, can be used. With the development of new technologies in three-dimension and computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) customized implants can be used as an alternative to conventional implant designs. However, there are limitations due to the lack of long-term studies or clinical studies. A long-term clinical trial and a more predictive study are needed.
