Abstract

Course Objectives: This course is designed to teach practitioners to adequately treat the most commonly encountered atrophied edentulous bone through bone manipulation & grafting procedures so that they can predictably recreate the adequate bone volumes in order to place implants into the most optimal locations. After taking the course participants will be confident to place and restore implants in their own practices and may even be able to undertake the advanced procedures such as bone grafting and sinus augmentation. Course Highlights: - Simple Implantation To Extensive Bone Grafting, Manipulation & Augmentation - Tunnel Grafting,Onlay Bone Grafting Techniques - Sinus Graft / Lift Procedures - Soft Tissue Manipulation & Esthetic Enhancement Techniques, Plastic Surgery Principles, Tissue Graft - Autologous Growth Factors for Tissue Regeneration & Augmentation - Fundamental steps which will avoid the causes of most problems related to implantology The Course Details: Didactic Sessions including Video Surgeries TREATING THE UNTREATABLE:In reality, most of the patients seeking implant treatment with existing edentulous areas either do not have adequate bone to permit implants to be placed or to have them placed into normal root locations. This may lead to no treatmentat all, limited number of implants, complicated prosthesis, inadequate occlusion, unnecessary over treatment, excessive costs and/orpoor esthetics / oral hygiene. This atrophy is a dynamic, functional loss as the bone heals and changes from stress bearing to non-stress bearing bone. For successful implant placement the goal should be to recreate bone in the same positions. In pursuance of perfection and a comprehensive solution the Course Conductor will present a unique philosophy, emphasizing on treating the untreatable cases; and will present to you the simplest ways to achieve these goals. OPTIONAL: Workshop Exercise Hands-on (Animal Jaws/models); if arranged by the organizers.

Abstract

Purpose: To compare the effect of two bioactive bioceramic materials on the repair of furcation perforation. Materials and Methods: Ninety-six teeth in six dogs were divided into two main groups according to the time of repair; immediate and delayed (one month). Each group was divided into three subgroups according to the evaluation period; one, two and three months. Each subgroup was further divided into two subgroups according to the material used; Biodentine and MTA. Each subgroup was evaluated radiographically to assess bone change percentage, histologically to assess the inflammatory cell count and immunohistochemically to assess the hard tissue formation. Data were analyzed using ANOVA and Tukey’s test. Results: The evidence of new hard tissue was noticed with no significant difference between Biodentine and MTA (P= 0.523), both found with highest deposition of hard tissue. Time of repair and the evaluation period showed statistical significant effect on the bone change percentage, the inflammatory cell count and the hard tissue formation. Conclusion: Furcation perforation has poorer prognosis if the perforation site is not immediately repaired. New hard tissue prevalence increased throughout the evaluation periods. Both tested materials; Biodentine and MTA promote hard tissue formation.

Abstract

Over the past 10 years, continuous improvements to Computer-Guided Surgery and CAD/CAM technology over this time, has started to challenge the technique of implant placement, fabricating implant prostheses, and abutments using conventional methods. As for the loading protocols, The scientific evidence for 'immediate loading' in implant dentistry except on partially edentulous maxilla is sufficient. But, in some of clinical reports, immediate loading even in posterior maxilla sometimes show good results under limited conditions as follows, 1) Utilize micro-rough surface treated implants, 2) Maintain around 30~55Ncm of insertion torque on implant surgery, and 3) Confirm the implant bed of at least 5mm remaining bone thickness vertically, when cortical bone fixation technique(bicortical fixation) with sinus floor elevation is applied, In only those cases that primary stability effect is expected, which depends on pure physical force and no micro-movement what so ever, during 1 week post-insertion and etc. immediate loading by connecting immediate functional restorations is possible. The purpose of this presentation is to answer the focused question: "How do Computer-Guided Surgery and CAD/CAM implant prostheses in patients with missing teeth, who have one or more dental implants, perform compared to conventionally placed implant as well as conventionally fabricated implant prostheses, when assessing aesthetics, complications (biologic and mechanical), patient satisfaction and risk factors."

Abstract

We will present different methods to augment and enhance bone and will show on clinical cases and follow-ups of more than 30 years our results. Following clinical cases will be presented: 243 revascularised Bone TX, 151 Distraction Osteogenesis cases, 23 Immediate Expansion Osteogenesis (Pedicled Sandwich Plasties [PSP]) cases, 36 Horseshoe Le Fort I Osteotomies in severely atrophied maxillas with less than 2 mm remnant bone and 554 Sinusgrafts with 1-5 mm remnant maxillary bone, grafted with different graft materials with and without PRP. For all these groups of clinical cases we will show our prosthetic solutions. Last but not least we will report about our studies with 4.0 x 5.0 mm ultra-short implants and diameter reduced 3.0 x 8.0 mm implants on tumour patients after micro-anastomosed fibula transplantation as well as on patients with extreme atrophy of the maxilla with less than 6 mm bone and extreme atrophy of the mandible with less than 7 mm bone. Furthermore we will show olso the results of our new studies with all-om-three in the mandible and maxilla. Until now we applied on 47 patients either in the maxilla in the interantral and/or in the mandible in the interforaminal region four 4.0 x 5.0 mm or 3.0 x 8.0 mm implants and on 20 patients three 4.0 x 5.0 implants. In our over eight years follow up experience we can report about extremely good result with less than 3 % implant losses due to missing osseointegration. Osseointegrated implants we have lost two until now.

Abstract

Toothwear is one of dental problem that was quite common nowadays and expected to increase globally. The issue in in developing and underdeveloped countries, this problem is not properly considered as important and was rarely taken care of. Many not realized that moderate to severe cases of toothwearwill give impact on patient’s quality of life and cumulatively effect the country especially budget for cost of treatment. Many cases of progressive toothwear could be avoided by early and proper assessment especially history taking to detect the aetiologias which could identify whether it is an attrition, erosion, abrasion, abfraction or mostly combination type. There were certain characteristics in assessing and analyzing the lesion’s type which also leading to its causes. Toothwear cases most of the time need phases management and localized treatment would not help much in long term period. Depending on the severity, management of toothwear casesespecially when vertical dimension has reduced, major oral rehabilitation was needed, maEnagement will be complex, need lot of time and cost. Due to that, prevention and halting the progress is more important. Several ways and advices can be given to the patient that facing this problem.

Abstract

A single blind randomized control trial was carried out on 50 healthy outpatients who required surgical removal of Mandibular third molars under local anesthesia were selected. The patients were divided into 2 groups (n = 25), the treatment (PVP-I) and control group (normal saline). The treatment group patients were irrigated using PVP-I 2% (w/v) (Betadine, Win- Medicare, India) during bone guttering and tooth sectioning. The control group patients were irrigated with saline (sodium chloride 0.9%, w/v; Parentral Drugs, India) only. Procedures that exceeded more than 1 hour were excluded from the study. Using Pederson difficulty index, patients with moderately difficulty index were chosen. All parameters for swelling were recorded preoperatively, on the first, second and seventh postoperative days for both procedures. The data were statistically analyzed using SPSS (version 22.0) software. Independent t-test was applied for Operative time in minutes and the two groups matched (p>0.05) for operative time. For change in swelling, T-tests was applied and we found increase in swelling in saline group which was highly significant for change from preoperative to day 2 (p=.005) and from preoperative to day 7 (p-value<.001). Mean for Pederson index for Betadine and saline group was found out to be same (P=1). PVP-I 2% was found out to be significantly reducing swelling as compared to saline suggesting that it acts as an anti-oedematous agent in mandibular third molar surgery.

Abstract

Glass ionomer cements (GICs) is widely used as restorative materials because of their anti-cariogenic properties, direct adhesion to tooth structure and good biocompatibilty. Despite that, their main disadvantage is that it has low strength.Recently, nanoHA-silica has been added to conventional GIC (cGIC)to improve its properties. This talk will discuss on some of the investigations that had been carried out, namely on material characterization, mechanical properties and biocompatibility of nanoHA-silica-GIC, which have demonstrated some promising results. For that, it can be suggested to be used as dental restorative material in the near future.

Abstract

In a relentless pursuance of perfection and a definitive solution for long term stability of tissues around dental implants, the author will present an exceptional concept - the 'Bone Renaissance'- a unique philosophy encompassing the sequential and codified reversal of the bone back to its original 3-D Engineered Divine Osseo-architecture (com'era, dov'era); by incorporating the 5 in 1 modus operandi: 'SABIRIN' (Stable Alveolar Bone Implant Reconstructive Integration Naturally), a major paradigm shift in re-establishing the natural spiritual union of the form and function. Analysis: Loss of teeth always leads to the shrinkage of jaw bone at the extraction site with a 50-70% bone loss in height and width over a period of 2-4 years resulting in unaesthetic facial lines, increase in size of maxillary sinus, over closure, prognathic appearance, reduced horizontal labial angle of lip, loss of tone in muscles of facial expression causing functional, anatomical and cosmetic problems. A typical patient, with existing edentulous areas and desiring implant treatment doesn't have adequate bone to permit implants to be placed into normal root locations. This atrophy is a dynamic functional loss as the bone heals and changes from stress bearing to non-stress bearing bone for implant placement. Methods: SABIRIN components: Bone Renaissance Implant placement with especial Osteotomes, Soft Tissue manipulation, Vascularized Osteotomies, Sinus & Onlay Grafts, Autologous Growth Factors & Stem Cells. Results: The refurbishment of patients to innate curve, contour, aesthetics and function is achieved by using SABIRIN components which resurrect the lost contours of hard and soft tissues with a long-term, aesthetic predictability. Discussion: Based on the 25 years of experience, the presenter thoroughly discusses the rationale, gives practical guidelines and presents surgical maneuvers to rectify hard & soft tissue deficiencies complemented by CGF to enhance facial aesthetics.

Abstract

Goal of Full Mouth Rehabilitation is, to restore, the loss of CONTOUR,COMFORT, FUNCTION, ASTHETICS, SPEECHand / ORHEALTHof patients. By the time of delivery of final restoration, it is necessary that, patient is having normal function. Function of normal physiologic BREATHING and SWALLOWING is very important for stable occlusal results. Do we check whether patient's mouth is ready to receive final restorations? Is it that, splint has worked,does it suggest final restorations will be stable? Or muscles will throw it back. This becomes more significant when our treatment plan incorporates both, implants and teeth. Muscles can not move, rigidly fixed implant but any tooth with just few grams of constant force can. Do we understand FUNCTION AND HOW TO CORRECT IT? Are we trained to correct muscle function? Do we tell our patients when they are breathing wrong? Is it not important for dental as well as general health? If yes, then only, we will be successful in treatment execution with long term stable results. Tongue thrust and proper breathing are given considerations in orthodontic treatment during growing age. Is it not necessary to give consideration in adults? Is it possible to reduce occlusal over load by correcting muscle function and increase longevity of restorations? Is there any relation between stress, diabetes, high blood pressure, neck pain, back pain and faulty function which dentist can correct? In this presentation all these issues and more will be addressed so that we will be ready for FULL MOUTH REHABILITATION with better understanding and improved long term success.

Abstract

Introduction: Preparation and disinfection of the root canal aims to remove organic and inorganic tissue from within the root canal, reduce the number of microorganisms, neutralize endotoxins inside the dentin, and prepare the root canal for proper obturation. These aims can be achieved in many cases to a degree that promises a high chance of success through a combination of mechanical preparation and chemical disinfection. Results and Conclusions: Preparation and disinfection both physically and chemically act on the lumen of the root canal itself, trying to remove as much infected material as possible, but also act on the surrounding dentin and all of its components including the dentinal tubules.

Abstract

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disease and disorders refer to a complex and poorly understood set of conditions, manifested by pain in the periauricular area, TMJ, or muscles of mastication, limitations and deviation in mandibular range of motion, TMJ sounds during jaw function. These make the limitations in the ability to make the normal movement of speech, facial expression, eating, chewing, and swallowing. Occlusal stabilization splint is one of an effective mode of a conservative line of therapy which is generally fabricated for maxillary arch. Ideally, when a stabilization splint is placed intraorally, there is minimal change to the maxillomandibular relationship. Semiadjustable articulator are programmed using static records to replicate dynamic movements of the jaw. One of the occlusal determinants that have to be replicated by the articulator system is the occlusal plane. Replication of the occlusal plane by the articulator with the help of facebow transfer as close to what is found in the patient is a necessity for the fabrication of occlusal stabilization splint to overcome patient with TMD. Case Report. A 25-year-old male patient come with chief complain of hard and pain to open mouth, hard to chew, pain on left temporomandibular joint, clicking sound, and there is deviation mandibula. First treatment, muscle relaxation, and control one week later to see how the improvement of the treatment. Then, occlusal stabilization splint was made by using semiadjustable articulator aids. The splint was used 24 hours, except for eating and controls one week later.

Abstract

The masticatory efficiency of complete denture, implanted supported, root supported and attachment retained overdenture, was checked by the electromyography, which would help in gaining information about the neurophysiologic mechanisms regulating the complex masticatory action and deciding the best treatment for the patients. The study was divided into two groups. In group one, there were five patients, these patients were first given complete denture and then given two implant supported overdenture. In group two, there were five patients, these patients were first given root supported overdenture and then given root supported attachment retained overdenture. Their masticatory efficiency was evaluated during clenching and mastication of masseter and temporalis muscles. This was done by the best proven method which is electromyography. Mean masticatory efficiency was found out during clenching and mastication and was tabulated and statistically analyzed using unpaired and paired t-test. As a result, the unpaired and paired t-test suggest that a significant statistical difference was obtained in the mean masticatory efficiency of the two-implant supported overdenture while clenching and mastication (P<0.0001). This showed that the two- implant supported overdenture had the maximum masticatory efficiency during clenching and mastication compared to the other three treatment modalities. As a conclusion, patient rehabilitated with two-implant supported overdenture gave the maximum masticatory efficiency values during clenching and mastication for both the muscles masseter & temporalis followed by attachment retained overdenture, root supported overdenture and conventional complete denture. Keywords: two-implant supported overdenture, root supported overdenture, attachment retained overdenture, masticatory efficiency, and electromyography.

Abstract

Objectives: Dentist-patient communication skills are important aspects of contemporary oral health care, as shared decision-making with patients becomes more common practice. This paper presents a review of the teaching and assessment methodologies for communication skills in dental practice. The aim is to categorize the skills most relevant to dental practice and matching them with best evidenced teaching and assessment methods. Methods: A systematic review was conducted using MEDLINE, EBM-Cochrane Libraries, Embase, ERIC, BIOSIS, CAB Abstracts, and PsycINFO using the OVID search engine, together with manually searching relevant journal publications. Important characteristics for the inclusion and exclusion criteria and analysing the strength quality of included articles were determined prospectively. Results: Fifty-two articles published between 2000 and 2016 were identified as relevant to this study. Most were comparative design studies. The highest prevalence were of single group studies with before and after tests, and cross-sectional studies. A set of 26 communication skills were identified and categorised under four major catagories. Categories: generic skills, case-specific skills, time-specific skills, and emerging skills. The review of the teaching methods showed that educators apply combinations of passive and active strategies. All the described assessment measures were considered valid and reliable. Conclusion: Specifying categories of essential communication skills can assist in curriculum design together with use of tested teaching methods and validated assessment measures. Keywords: Communication; education, dental; educational measurement.

Abstract

Renal failure is a process that expresses a loss of functional capacity of the nephrons, independently of its etiology. The most widely used technique to combat renal failure is hemodialysis. Renal failure causes various systemic alterations including oral complications such as variations in the flow and composition of the saliva. Caries is a multifactorial disease and impaired stimulated salivary flow rate and buffering capacity are the best-known risk factors. The present study aims to evaluate the salivary pH, buffering capacity and the flow rate of saliva to the DMFT status in adult hemodialysis patients among the Indian population. Twenty healthy individuals and sixty patients undergoing hemodialysis were divided into four groups based on the following criteria: Group 1: Control group;healthy individuals,Group 2: Patients before undergoing dialysis or undergoing dialysis<3 months, Group 3: Patients undergoing dialysis since 6 months-2 years, Group 4: Patients undergoing dialysis>2 years. Dental examinations were performed according to the modified WHO oral health survey 2013 criteria and DMFT index. Saliva was collected after pre-stimulation to measuring the flow rate, buffering capacity and pH. The results exhibited a decrease in the salivary flow rate and buffering capacity with the increase in the time interval of hemodialysis, but salivary pH was found to be increasing with time. A direct relationship was seen between the DMFT scores with the increasing time interval. There was a significant correlation between DMFT index, stimulated salivary flow rate, and buffering capacity in the patients. Oral health impairment can beacon to grave problems in infection-prone hemodialysis patients. Hence, the patients on hemodialysis should have regular dental examinations and treatment. Regular dental examination and instruction in patients awaiting a renal transplantation is of vital importance to ensure optimal oral health.

Abstract

Background: The bond strength of the root canal sealers to dentin is very important property for maintaining the integrity and the seal of root canal filling. The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the push-out bond strength of root filled with total fill Bioceramic, AH Plus and Gutta-flow 2 sealers using Gutta Fusion obturation system versus single cone obturation technique. Materials and method: sixty of mandibular premolars teeth with straight roots were used in this study, these roots were instrumented using Reciproc system, instrumentation were done with copious irrigation of 3 mL 5.25% sodium hypochlorite solution (NaOCl) during all the steps of preparation, and smear layer will be removed with 1 ml of 17% EDTA kept in the canal for 1 min, roots were randomly divided into two groups according to the obturation technique (thirty teeth for each group): Group I: Single Reciproc Gutta percha cone obturation technique, Group II: Gutta fusion obturation technique, then each group divided into three subgroup according to the type of sealer, AH subgroup: AH Plus sealer, BC subgroup: bioceramic sealer and GF subgroup: Gutta flow 2 sealer. The roots then stored in moist environment at 37 Degrees Celsius for one week, the roots were embedded in clear acrylic resin and each root sectioned into three levels apical, middle and cervical. The bond strength was measured using computerized universal testing machine each section fixed in the machine so that the load applied from apical to cervical direction at 0.5mm/min. speed and the computer show the higher bond force before dislodgment of the filling material. These forces were divided by the surface area to obtain the bond strength in MPa. Results: Statistical analysis was performed and the result showed a highly significant differences between the three types of sealers when the same obturation technique were used, also there is highly significant differences between two groups with two different obturation technique. Conclusion: This study showed that the push out bond strength of AH plus sealer was higher than bioceramic sealer and Gutta flow 2 sealer respectively when the same obturation technique was used. The push out bond strength was affected by the obturation technique and Gutta fusion obturation technique showed higher bond strength than single cone obturation technique when the same type of sealer was used.

Abstract

Accuracy in bonding procedure allows to reach easily a correct tooth alignment and decreases the need of mid course correction, changing bracket's position. Indirect bonding allows to transfer the bracket position from model casts to patient's teeth. There are several advantages regarding indirect procedures such as shorter appointments for bonding and rebonding and best comfort during in-office practice. The aim of this work is to illustrate the complete workflow to realize a digital indirect bonding. We space from digital impressions, digital model cast and digital brackets positioning, ending with the realization of a prototyped transfer tray. Each passage is computer aided, so we can reduce the human fault and we can improve the everyday work in office. This kind of indirect bonding is a simple solution for everyday's work, reagarding the future of orthodontics.

Abstract

Introduction: Dental implants are one of the most important aspects of dental treatment. There are several methods for improvement of functional status of dental implant. Periimplantitis is an inflammation with bacterial etiology that is characterized with supportive bone loss and inflammation of surrounding tissue. The aim of this study was Assessment of the effect of YSGG-YAG Laser on periodontal bacterial growth in Ti-6Al-4V implant discs with different surface treatment methods. Material and method: In this study we compare effect of different methods (laser, electrical discharge machining, sandblasting and milling) as surface treatment on Ti-6Al-4V wettability and periodontal bacterial growth. Wettability test, scanning electron microcopy (SEM) for assessment of surface microstructure was used. The samples were cultured in bacterial (actinobacillus actinomysetoma comitans) suspension and for disc decontamination we used YSGG-YAG laser with 1 watt power. Colony counting of bacteria after laser irradiation was done with colony counter device. Results: YSGG-YAG laser significantly decrease bacterial load in all different surface treatments. Ti-6Al-4V discs that underwent surface treatment with laser showed more decrease in bacterial load. After laser irradiation in comparison with other samples (p-value: 0.047). In electrical discharge machinined samples, sandblasting and milling samples, bacterial load after laser irradiation decreased but there was no statistically significant difference between these groups. Conclusion: surface treatment with laser beam is preferred method for surface treatment of Ti-6Al-4V implant discs because of less wettability and lower bacterial adhesion.

Abstract

Background: This study aimed to compare superelastic and heat-activated nickel - titanium orthodontic wires surface morphology and potential release of nickel Ions following exposure to oral environment conditions. Methods: 24 Twenty four 20-mm- length distal cuts of superelastic (NiTi Force 1)and 24 20-mm- length distal cuts of heat activated (Therma - Ti lite) nickel titanium wires (American orthodontics, Sheboygan,WL,USA)were divided into two equal groups:12 wire segments passively exposed to oral environment for 1 month. Scanning electron microscopy were used to analyze surface morphology of the wires which were immersed in artificial salive for 1 month to determine potential nickel Ions' release by means of atomic absorption spectrophotometer. Results: Heat - activated nickel- titanium(NiTi) were rougher than superelastic wires, and both types of wires released almost the same amount of Ni Ions. After clinical exposure more surface roughness was recorded for superelasticNiTi wires and heat-activated NiTi wires. However,retrievedsuperelasticNiTi wires released less Ni Ions in artificial saliva after clinical exposure, and the same result was recorded regarding heat-activated wires. Conclusions Both types of NiTi wires were obviously affected by oral environment conditions, their surface roughness significantly increased while the amount of the released Ni Ions significantly declined.

Abstract

Retreatment of endodontically treated teeth is a great challenge in restorative dentistry. In addition, a satisfactory endodontic treatment is essential for the longevity of the treated tooth and also to support an intraradicular post and core and a fixed crown. A sufficient coronal seal and apical seal with a correct angulation of placing post are compulsory. As a result, the necessity of immediate root canal opening requires a very good knowledge and skill of an expert prior to replacing post especially with a detached crown. However, the case of retreatment is very selective and multifactors need to be considered to increase the success rate.

Abstract

In this esthetic driven world, people are very conscious as to how they look and if any corrections have to be incorporated, it is imperative to make the patient understand how will the final output be. Even though mock ups and temporaries have solved the purpose over a period of time, their judicious use along with three dimensional aspects are of utmost importance. How the final product will be shouldn't come as a surprise - thereby bridging the gap between expectations and reality should be done even before the actual preparation begins as its rightly said - explanation before the procedure is discussion and explanation after the procedure is an excuse. The preconference course / workshop will help us understand, diagnose and treatment plan cases for veneers along with hands on session for ceramic veneer preparation, impressions and keys to cementation.

Abstract

Maxillofacial defects results from trauma, treatment of neoplastic disease or congenital disease. Either oncologic or traumatic or congenital, all type of defects isrestored prosthetically after surgical management. A complete rehabilitation process usually improves patient's quality of life in terms of aesthetics and functions. Rapid prototyping is a new addition to the current prosthesis rehabilitation process. Which saves a significant amount of time in fabrication of prosthesis. However there are many challenges persist in whole technique compared to conventional procedure. At the present time UniversitiSains Malaysia (USM) has developed the 3D cad cam maxillofacial prosthesis fabrication centre. The objective of current lecture would be sharing the clinical experiences of USM in the field of maxillofacial prosthetics for both conventional and 3D cad cam prosthesis. Followed by to make the audience understand the importance of prosthetic rehabilitation after surgical management of maxillofacial defects.

Abstract

Provisional restorations are worn for short or long-term placement on teeth between the time of tooth preparation until the definitive indirect restorations are placed. Bacterial colonization and subsequent development of periodontal problems are linked to the type of material used. The objective of the present in vitro study was to evaluate the bacterial colonization on the surface of commonly used provisional materials and to compare it with the CAD/CAM milled methyl methacrylate resin. Ten cylindrical specimens were prepared from four temporary fixed prosthodontic materials. Three conventional provisional fixed prosthodontic materials and one CAD/CAM milled methyl methacrylate were used to study the surface roughness, surface wettability and bacterial colonization on the surface using an in vitro method. S. mutans was used to study the bacterial adhesion to the surface of the materials. The surface properties of the four tested materials varied and were correlated with bacterial colonization on the surface. A statistically significant reduction in bacterial colonization was found with the CAD/CAM milled PMMA compared to the conventional provisional restorative materials used. It can be concluded that the CAD/CAM milled polymethyl methacrylate was superior in terms of surface characteristics as well as inhibition of bacterial colonization. Further in vivo studies are recommended to substantiate the present observations.

Abstract

Traditiontal implants require an undisturbed healing period of three to six months, depending on the quality of the surrounding bone and the location of the implants. On the other hand, implants placed in the cortical bone can be immediately functionally loaded. In strategic implantology we use immediate loading protocols. Each implant is anchored in at least two locations in the cortical bone. The cortcalis provides a high level of stability of the implant because of its high level of minaralisation and low metabolism. It can be immediately loaded and practically does not resorb throughout a patient's lifetime. Bone augmentation, sinus lift, bone transplants and waiting periods become unnecessary.Only one single surgical intervention is necessary. Strategic Implants are splinted with (permanent or semi-permanent) bridges very soon after the implant placement. If desired, another bridge (for instance of a different material) may be placed after 6-9 months. In many cases however the first bridge will be the final one. When using strategic implantology we are able to treat even the most sever cases of bone atrophy and patients with diabetes and other medical issues and we are able to give to the patient a beautiful smile in just 3 days.

Abstract

Case-based learning (CBL) is an educational paradigm closely related to the more common problem-based learning (PBL). CBL can be categorized under adult teaching/learning where contextualised question based upon ‘‘real life’’ problems are posed. CBLstimulates the acquisition of knowledgethrough providing a case. The selected case place events in a context that promotes authentic learning. Our discussion will address the evloution of CBL from written cases that provide the student with a background of a patient or other clinical situation to technology – enhanced cases with virtual pateints and video scenarios . The rationale and the educational theories underpinning Case-based learning and the future of CBLs in prostheitc dentistrywill be explored and disucssed during this talk.

Abstract

Noncarious cervical lesions (NCCLs) are defined as loss of dental hard tissue at the cementoenamel junction by a chemical or mechanical process that does not involve bacteria. Noncarious cervical lesions are a frequent challenge in clinical dental practice; however, there are the variety of opinions regarding their etiology, diagnosis, and treatment. Proper treatment planning of noncarious cervical lesions is guided by careful clinical diagnosis; it can be treated by mucogingival surgery and restorative therapy techniques either used alone or in combination depending on the defect characteristics.

Abstract

Background:correction of cleft lip nasal deformity is very challenging for any surgeon especially when complicated with hypoplastic maxilla and open alveolar defect. Secondary cheilorhinoplasty and alveolar grafting are essential parts in correction of such deformity. The aim of this study was to assess both clinically and radiologically the outcome of simultaneous cheilorhinoplasty and alveolar cleft grafting in unilateral CLND cases. Patients and method: 8 patients aged between 14 and 25 years were selected randomly for correction of unilateral CLND and alveolar bone grafting with autogenous bone graft simultaneously. Patients were assessed preoperatively and postoperatively both clinically regarding nasal function using NOSE scale, photographic evaluation of lip and nose esthetics, and radiologically regarding alveolar cleft graft density. Data were statistically analysed. Results: the results of this study showed statistically significant difference between pre and postoperative records regarding nasal obstruction, nasal and lip aesthetics and symmetry, and success of alveolar cleft grafting except one case revealed alveolar graft loss and recurrence of oronasal fistula. Conclusion: Secondary cheilorhinoplasty can be done successfully in the same time with late secondary alveolar bone grafting to avoid several surgical distresses for the patient, to improve facial aesthetic and function in one surgical step, and to reduce risk of psychological consequences. Alveolar bone grafting is an important part for augmentation of alar base.Autogenous bone graft provides good grafting material for repair of alveolar cleft and augmentation of alar base. Standardised photographs can be used for evaluation of aestheticsof the lip and nose. 3d CT scan is a valuable instrument in assessment and follow up of alveolar cleft grafting procedures.

Abstract

Peri-implantitis is a disease process involving the hard and soft tissue surrounding a dental implant. This inflammatory process has destructive consequences to the outcome of osseointegrated dental implant which results in recurring localised infection and potentially implant loss. Peri-implantitis is prevalent and numbers are rising with the increasing use of dental implants. Conventionally, peri-implantitis has been treated with non-surgical methods using plastic curettes with or without adjunct disinfectants and Antibiotic therapies. These methods have not been successful at resolving the disease process eventually requiring further surgical intervention. Laser therapy displays favourable properties such as anti-inflammatory, bio-stimulation, bactericidal and implant surface decontamination. These favourable properties have encouraged researches to investigate laser use in both non-surgical and surgical treatment protocols in resolving peri-implantitis disease. AIM The aim of this literature review is to investigate the effectiveness of different laser therapies in treating periimplantitis in both surgical and non-surgical methods. Moreover, to compare all available laser therapy modalities currently available in treating peri-implantitis and compare between conventional treatment methods and laser assisted methods in treating peri-implantitis. This review aims to assist the general and specialist practitioner in determining if there is enough evidence to warrant using laser therapy in treating peri-implantitis. METHOD Literature review search was done using four different databases and certain key words from publications between 1980 and 2017. The search results from all four databases came to a combined 120 articles. An inclusion criteria and an exclusion criteria was determined and applied. All abstracts were examined and based on the content of these articles and the criteria set for inclusion and exclusion, 37 publications were handpicked to be included in the literature review. RESULTS The included literature was classified based on the level of evidence followed by further classification based on laser type. Er:YAG lasers had the greatest number of studies in both surgical and non-surgical treatment protocols. All studies concluded that Er:YAG laser is not effective in non-surgical treatment nor does it have any advantage in implant surface decontamination during surgical treatment over conventional decontamination methods. Similar results were found when using Nd:YAG, CO2, Diode lasers and Photodynamic Therapy. Long term controlled clinical trials are required for Er,Cr:YSGG to determine the effectiveness in treating peri-implantitis in non-surgical treatment protocols. CONCLUSION Despite the current available literature which shows laser therapy as ineffective in treating peri-implantitis, there is a vast amount of heterogenicity in the current trials methodology. Therefore, longer controlled clinical trials with defined clinical parameters and treatment protocols comparing different laser types, laser energy settings and firing tips is needed.

Abstract

Aim: The present study compared the antiplaque effects of two herbal mouthwashes (Salvadorapersica and Azadirachtaindica) with two synthetic types {Chlorhexidine (CHX) and Cetylpyridinium (CPC)}. Design: In this triple-blind, randomized controlled trial, 100 patients undergoing orthodontic treatment were offered scaling and polishing at baseline to get zero plaque score. In the first phase, they were given oral hygiene education and provided a standard tooth paste to be used twice daily for a period of three weeks. In the second phase, following scaling and polishing, they were randomlyallocated to use one of the four mouthwashes (A= Chlorhexidine, B= Cetylpyridinium, C= Extracts of Salvadorapersicamiswak and D= Extracts of Azadirachtaindicamiswak) along with previously instructed tooth brushing protocol for a further period of three weeks. Plaque accumulation was scored according to Modified Bonded Bracket Plaque Index: at the start, after tooth brush-paste trial and at the end of mouthwash trial.Comparison of mean difference of Post-Plaque index between and within groups was performed by one-waymultivariate analysis of variance MANOVA and Post hoc Tukey test. Results: A total of 80 participants completed the study; among them, 17 were males and 63 were females. There was significant decrease in mean plaque scores after using mouthwashes in all the 4 groups at follow-up when compared to first plaque score (p=0.001). The greatest reduction (of plaque score) was found in Group C (Salvadorapersica) when compared with the CHX group (p=0.016). The other comparison were not statistically significant. Conclusion: Compared to other mouthwashes, SalvadoraPersicamiswak based mouthwash showed maximum reduction in the plaque scores among orthodontic patients.

Abstract

Clinicians are called upon to diagnose orofacial pain on a daily basis. For the most part, this is a routine procedure, which is accomplished without too much difficulty. Most painful conditions follow predictable patterns and exhibit specific signs and symptoms, which when observed, make diagnosis a relatively easy task to perform. Patients do present nevertheless, where diagnosis is difficult and pain patterns do not follow recognized norms. Many cases can have unsatisfactory outcomes for both patients and practitioners. There are numerous textbooks that deal with pain diagnosis. Most provide a comprehensive review of the signs, symptoms and pathology associated with the various conditions that can cause facial pain. Few deal with the actual process of diagnosing orofacial pain, and even fewer deal in any detail with the specific questions and tests that are required to establish a diagnosis for each condition. This presentation will addresses difficulties in assessing patients with orofacial pain by focusing on the questions that need to be asked and the analysis or responses to these. This is in contrast to just describing the various painful conditions. Attention is paid to the meaning of descriptors, to non-verbal means that patients use to describe pain and to recent advances in the science of orofacial pain diagnosis.

Abstract

Aim & objectives:Hyperactive gag reflex (GR) can be a big obstacle in certain dental procedures especially in making an upper arch impression. Treating those might be a challenge for both the dentist and the Patient. Many patients withdraw from treatment because of their inability to cope with the procedure. One of the effective modalities in controlling this phenomenon is the use of Acupuncture. In this trial Ear acupuncture was used aiming to control GR during upper alginate impression. Method:A total of ten patients aged between 20 and 60 years, with a history of GR on taking dental impressions were selected to be part of this clinical trial. All patients fulfilled the inclusion criteria had an upper dental alginate impression taken (or an attempt made at it) before acupuncture and a second upper alginate impression taken immediately after acupuncture based on traditional Chinese medicine. The gagging severity index used to assess GR before insertion of the acupuncture needle while gagging prevention index was used after the acupuncture and impression taking. Results: seven patients scored I with the reflex obtunded and the impression taking carried out successfully, one patient scored II with the reflex partially controlled and impression taking still possible, two patients scored III with the reflex partially controlled but with frequent gagging and impression taking still possible. No adverse effects were observed and patients were fit to leave unescorted. Conclusion: Ear Acupuncture was found to be effective in controlling GR in all ten participants in different levels. Key words:Anti-gagging point, Ear acupuncture,Impression.

Abstract

Objective: Mandibular incisor teeth can be challenging to replace satisfactorily and as there a number of treatment options available for any one clinical scenario it is possible that a patient may receive varying treatment depending on the dentist's preference for replacing missing mandibular incisors. The aim of study was to determine dentist's preferences on treatment options to replace missing lower incisors in patients of varying ages. Materials and methods: Fifty questionnaires together with clinical photographs, a radiograph, and study casts were given to dentists working in the Glasgow Dental Hospital and School and dentists working in a dental clinic in Libya. The questions included in the questionnaire were directed towards the assessment of dentist's preferences on treatment options to restore missing lower incisors in patients of different ages. Results: For the 18 year old group the most commonly used treatment options were both the use of an adhesive bridge (36%) and a fixed-fixed bridge (36%) although the overall preferred treatment option was the use of a dental implant (68%). Generally, the respondents were in agreement to use the same treatment options for the patient of 40 years old as for the 18 year old (82%). More than half (56%) of the respondents were in agreement to use the same treatment options for the 60 year old patient as for the 18 year old. Conclusion: Within the limitations of this study it can be concluded that there was a difference between some of the dentists in the preferred treatment for the replacement of missing incisors in the clinical scenarios presented in this study.

Abstract

As the whole world gets more digital, so do we. This article provides a basic know-how for the CAD/CAM-workflow for metallic orthodontic appliances. Demonstrating step-by-step how to design the appliance on a digital cast and laser-melting (3D metal printing) it, till the final result, without any physical models. Introduction: Not many years ago, the orthodontists had to ask themselves, should we change from analog cameras to a digital one’s for records? The advantages such as immediate availability after taking the picture, storage and handling of digital pictures convinced them all.[1-3] The next obvious step was the digital X-ray, should we change? The same story happened in that case: Lower radiation, higher resolution of the X-ray, and less pollution of the environment due to less chemical developer use convinced the orthodontists. Basic Equipment: This leads to the next step, the digital impressions. Should we scan or not? Nowadays, it is not the question about precision of the scan; the question is whether the orthodontic clinic and the cooperating dental lab are ready for it. Material and Methods: The intraoral scanner used for this way to produce the metallic orthodontic appliances was the Trios 2 from 3Shape (3Shape, Copenhagen, Denmark). Any intraoral scanner with an STL-file output can be used the same way. Clinical Application This production way can be applied for every metal based, as it is shown in three examples right away. Hyrax (rapid palatal expansion) The first step after scanning is to design the metal base of the appliance. Leave space for the connection to the expansion screw, for an optimal laser welding site. After sintering the screw is added to the appliance and fitted on the teeth with Transbond XT (3M). Activation (Forestadent Snaplock Expander 12 mm screw, 0.9 mm per complete turn) twice per day for 2 weeks. Regular reaction on the hyrax is observed. Conclusion: The advantages of the last step in digitizing the orthodontic clinic will convince all orthodontist, even though it will take some time till all the clinics will be equipped with scanners. Furthermore, there are more appliances, bonded and removable, that have to be adapted first the digital way.

Abstract

Zirconia implants were introduced into dental implantology as an alternative to titanium implants. Zirconia implants are the last link in the chain of zirconium dioxide, a material that has so far positively influenced conservative and prosthetic dentistry by making it largely metal-free. Zirconia seems to be a suitable implant material because of its toothlike color, mechanical properties, biocompatibility, and low plaque affinity. The aim of this presentation is to impart the information on zirconia dental implants, compare them with titanium dental implants, and provide information on zirconia dental implant osseointegration and mechanical strength. Zirconia dental implants have the potential to become alternative dental implants to titanium dental implants. Additional clinical studies are required to identify all relevant technical and biological factors affecting implant success and patients satisfaction. However, the evidence for a final verdict is, at present, still incomplete.

Abstract

PURPOSE: To evaluate the clinical outcome of two implants placed flapless in fully edentulous mandibles and immediately restored with metal-resin screw-retained cross-arch prostheses 5 years after loading. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighty consecutive patients were recruited. To be immediately loaded, implants had to be inserted with a minimum torque of 80 Ncm. Forty-six laser-welded titanium and 34 cast silver-palladium frameworks with resin teeth were initially delivered within 8 and 48 h, respectively. Outcome measures, evaluated by two independent assessors included prosthesis and implant failures, complications, marginal bone level changes, implant stability quotient (ISQ) values and patient satisfaction. RESULTS: Five years after loading one patient did not return to the control and 10 prostheses were remade. Two implants failed early in two patients, but they were successfully replaced. Thirty-six complications occurred in 28 patients but were all successfully treated. After 5 years, mean marginal bone loss was 0.69 mm, mean ISQ values decreased from 75.4 to 73.8, and all patients were fully satisfied with the therapy. A post-hoc comparison between the outcome of laserwelded and cast frameworks showed that laser-welded frameworks were affected by significantly more complications (19 patients out of 46 and 6 patients out of 34, respectively; difference in proportion = 0.23, 95% CI: 0.03 to 0.43; Pearson's chi-square test, P = 0.032), therefore such a framework construction should be considered as a long-term temporary prosthesis and not a definitive prosthesis. CONCLUSIONS: Immediately loaded mandibular cross-arch prostheses can be supported by only two implants up to 5 years, if made with a robust cast framework. Longer followups (around 10 years) are still needed to know the prognosis of this treatment modality.

Abstract

This article summarizes key aspects of the interdisciplinary approach to implant-based treatment in the esthetic zone. Objectives Measures of success generally include implant integration and health of the surrounding periodontal tissues; in the anterior dentition, esthetics must also be measured. A successful team approach to treatment mandates that the periodontist and surgeon have a clear understanding of what is expected in terms of the restorative result, including the restorative materials that will be used, as implant position can significantly impact this. Equally important, the prosthodontics must understand the surgical treatment options and the procedural limitations in terms of tissue regeneration and implant placement. Method A successful team approach to treatment mandates that the periodontist have a clear understanding of what is expected in terms of the restorative result, including the restorative materials that will be used, as implant position can significantly impact this. Equally important, the restoring dentist must understand the surgical treatment options and the procedural limitations in terms of tissue regeneration and implant placement. Conclusion The goal of this article is to sensitize the participant to the changing treatment concepts and methodologies used today in both the surgical and restorative phases of implant treatment. The four principle areas of treatment explored include: emerging hard tissue management procedures and materials; enhancing the gingival biotype and gingival volume; implant placement and restoration strategies that may impact soft and hard tissue stability; and the impact of implant and abutment designs on hard- and soft-tissue volume and post-restoration stability.

Abstract

Background: Remineralizing agents such as fluoride and casein phosphopeptide amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP) are well known treatment options for incipient enamel lesions(1, 2). An alternative approach to treat carious lesions that are not expected to remineralize or arrest by non-invasive measures could be the infiltration with low viscosity light curing resins. Thus, lesion progression is hampered or even arrested. As a positive side effect, the whitish appearance is at least instantly masked(3, 4). However, the efficacy of these treatments in primary teeth was not broadly investigated. Objectives: To assess microhardness, depth of resin infiltration, and color change of artificial enamel lesions in primary teeth treated with resin infiltration, CPP-ACP, and acidulated phosphate fluoride (APF) gel. Methods: Enamel lesions were created in a total of 55 primary teeth enamel specimens that were randomly distributed among three groups according to the method of evaluation; Group I: microhardness testing (n=30), Group II: Scanning electron microscope (SEM) analysis(n=10), and Group III: color change evaluation (n=15), consequently each group was subdivided into subgroups. Enamel lesions were treated with resin infiltration (ICON; DMG, Hamburg, Germany), CPP-ACP (GC Tooth Mousse; GC Corporation, Tokyo, Japan), or 1.23% APF Gel (Sultan Healthcare Inc, USA). Specimens were then evaluated for microhardness, and depth of resin infiltration, using Vickers microhardness testing, and scanning electron microscope (SEM), respectively,at three different stages; before enamel lesion formation, after enamel lesion formation, as well as after treatment application and pH cycling. For color assessment, readings of specimensbefore enamel lesion formation and after treatment applications and pH cycling were recorded using spectrophotometer for ΔE calculation. Results: Enamel specimens treated with resin infiltration showed the highest microhardness mean value compared to those of CPP-ACP and APF.SEM analysis revealed a depth of resin infiltration of 276 micrometers infiltrating the enamel structure, while CPP- ACP subgroup revealed some new crystals formed on the remineralized enamel surface, and some enamel cracks existed also indicating that it was not fully remineralized. APF subgroup was almost similar to CPP with less apparent crystal aggregation and demineralizing defects indicating better remineralization than CPP-ACP. All treatments showed acceptable color masking effect, yet resin infiltration had the best ability to mask the white color of enamel lesions. Conclusions: Resin infiltration has a great potential in increasing microhardness and infiltrating artificial enamel lesions in primary teeth compared to APF, and CPP-ACP. Moreover, resin infiltration showed the best color masking effect, yet all surface treatments were clinically acceptable. Thus,resin infiltration can be used as a fast and effective treatment option of incipient enamel lesions in primary teeth.

Abstract

Over the past 10 years, continuous improvements to Computer-Guided Surgery and CAD/CAM technology over this time, has started to challenge the technique of implant placement, fabricating implant prostheses, and abutments using conventional methods. As for the loading protocols, The scientific evidence for 'immediate loading' in implant dentistry except on partially edentulous maxilla is sufficient. But, in some of clinical reports, immediate loading even in posterior maxilla sometimes show good results under limited conditions as follows, 1) Utilize micro-rough surface treated implants, 2) Maintain around 30~55Ncm of insertion torque on implant surgery, and 3) Confirm the implant bed of at least 5mm remaining bone thickness vertically, when cortical bone fixation technique(bicortical fixation) with sinus floor elevation is applied, In only those cases that primary stability effect is expected, which depends on pure physical force and no micro-movement what so ever, during 1 week post-insertion and etc. immediate loading by connecting immediate functional restorations is possible. The purpose of this presentation is to answer the focused question: "How do Computer-Guided Surgery and CAD/CAM implant prostheses in patients with missing teeth, who have one or more dental implants, perform compared to conventionally placed implant as well as conventionally fabricated implant prostheses, when assessing aesthetics, complications (biologic and mechanical), patient satisfaction and risk factors."

Abstract

Neuro-muscluarequilibrium and optimal-stableCranio-Sacral alignment is the absolute goalof the TMDs treatment. The holistic principles of homeostasis goes beyond basic occlusal understanding and mandibular spatial positioning. To support Cranio-Mandibular System function, compensatory muscle activity takes place within the entire body which are integral part of dynamic orchestra of the movement. In attempt to resolve the underlying occlusal problems of TMDthis compensatory muscle activity may resulting in the serious symptoms due to the cranio-sacral importance of motion in maxillary and palatine sutures and due to miss toleration from the lower jaw of teeth rigid reconstructions. A number of intrinsic physiologic processes act upon the masticatory system and collectively determine its parameters of function. These physiologic determinants include cardiovascular, endocrine, immunologic, metabolic and neural (both peripheral and CNS) influences. Several neurological and orthopaedic disorders have been discovered and ultimately resolved by treating local pathogenetic factors. Improper physical forces resulting in heightened afferent trigeminal nerve activity and input to the central nervous system. Under such circumstances, jaw and tooth mobility play an important role in postural organization or, conversely, postural disorganization.

Abstract

Prosthetically driven implant surgery has been a subject of fundamental interest to the dental profession. Correct implant positioning has obvious advantages, such as favorable esthetic and prosthetic outcomes, long-term stability of peri-implant hard and soft tissues as a result of simple oral hygiene and the potential to ensure optimal occlusion and implant loading (8–10). Moreover, correct positioning of the implant enables the final prostheses to be optimally designed and makes it possible to devise and fabricate retrievable screwretained suprastructures, thereby avoiding nonretrievable cemented restorations (36). Consequently, all of these factors may contribute to the long-term success of dental implants. Furthermore, various requirements, such as the desired interimplant distance, tooth-to-implant distance, implant depth and other aspects, have made virtual implant planning an important tool when aiming for optimal treatment success (26, 56). In 1988, columbia scientific, inc (Glen burnie, MD, USA) introduced three-dimensional dental software, which converted computerized tomography axial slices into reformatted cross-sectional images of the alveolar ridges for diagnosis and evaluation. Consequently, in 1991, a combination software, ImageMaster-101, was introduced, which provided the additional feature of placement of graphic images of dental implants on the cross-sectional images. The first version of SimPlant, produced by Columbia Scientific in 1993, allowed placement of virtual implants of exact dimensions on cross-sectional, axial and panoramic views of computerized tomography images. Simplant 6.0 (Columbia Scientific 1999) added the creation of a three-dimensional reformatted image surface rendering to the software. In 2002, Materialise (Leuven, Belgium) purchased Columbia Scientific and introduced the technology for drilling osteotomies to an exact depth and direction through a surgical guide. Since then, several software, rapid prototyping and implant companies have introduced their own software and surgical guide modalities to allow a guided surgical approach
