Abstract

The lateral approach in sinus lift allows to optimally manage severe bone resorption in posterior maxilla in order to place implant supported prosthesis; however, the conventional protocols requires bigger window and cannot determine in advance the precise position for bone incision, so in many cases the detachment of Schneider membrane is more difficult if the bone isn’t cut near the sinus floor or if there is a bone septum. The aim of Cappellin simplified sinus lift protocol is to minimize the surgical difficulties with a surgical guide realized from STL 3D printed model (conversion of DICOM cone-beam CT files): from 2013 to 2017, in 125 sinus lift cases with 210 implants we obtain a success of 100% for the sinus lift augmentation and 100% survival rate for the implants; we also drastically reduce the surgery time (average is about 25 minutes). The horizontal and vertical GBR allow to obtain new bone volumes required for placing implants according to prosthetic and estheticdemands; however, it cannot be ignored that conventional protocols present morbidity and complications, especially linked to the difficult soft tissue management and the premature membrane exposition. The aim of Cappellin simplified GBR protocol is minimize the surgical difficulties with a 3D custom milled grid that allows to reduce the extension of the flaps and using a-PRF and stem cells (Rigenera) for quick revascularization in order to speed up the healing time and avoid the risk linked to flap opening during the first weeks after the surgery;we also drastically reduce the surgery time (average is about 40 minutes). In regards of these preliminary results, Cappellin simplified protocols offers advantages in terms of safety, simplicity, quickness, reliability and allows to reduce the economic costs of the procedures.

Abstract

Aesthetics are often the most important concern of our Patients. Therefore Dental implants are an indispensable part of our dental practice. But not every Patient needs an Implant for an aesthetic solution. Adhesive bridges can give a long-term and very aesthetic rehabilitation. But however, implants can not be placed only prosthetic driven as in the old days. New biological thoughts with regards of soft tissue management, creating a stable mucosal situation around implants in the functional area did come up in the last years. The newly approach can ensure the long-term success of implant therapy. But the focus is to achieving a stable softtissue around implants, tooth and pontics. Time is for our Patients very important too. The new Multi-Layer-Technique combines up to 4 surgical interventions in one. The evolution of dental care, materials and methods allows us to deliver our patients quickly, minimally invasively and with predictable results. Established therapy concepts such as the bone lamina technique and the augmentation of subepithelial connective tissue enable a new treatment approach. The multi-layer technique isa treatment to replace a single-tooth in the esthetic zone with immediate implants in one intervention only. It combines hardtissue and softtissue augmentation. To manage the interfaces between periodontology as well as implant therapy and the other disciplines is very important for a predictable and esthetic outcome. To mention that softtissue is the key for success not only in implant dentistry you will see different modern techniques in grafting connective tissue from the palatal and the tuberosity.

Abstract

By integrating oral health into strategies for promoting general health and by assessing oral needs in socio-dental ways, health planners can greatly enhance both general and oral health. The key concept underlying future oral health strategies is integration with this approach, a major benefit being the focus on improving health conditions in general for the whole population and for groups at high risk, thereby reducing social inequities. Problems in the mouth can signal trouble in other parts of the body. AIDS and osteoporosis are examples. Mouth lesions and other oral conditions may be the first sign of HIV infection, and are used to determine the stage of infection and to follow its progression to AIDS. The human mouth is home to millions of microorganisms, most of them harmless. Under certain conditions, however, some can cause oral infections such as tooth decay or gum disease. Oral bacteria may also enter the bloodstream if normal protective barriers in the mouth are breached. This can happen as a result of dental treatment or even tooth brushing and flossing. Recent studies point to associations between oral infections – primarily gum infections – and diabetes; heart disease; stroke; and preterm, low-weight births. Research is under way to determine if the associations are causal or coincidental. Gum infections have been called "the sixth complication of diabetes," because people with diabetes are more likely to have periodontal disease. Researchers are exploring a possible two-way connection between the conditions to see if treating gum disease improves diabetic control. Recent studies point to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke in people with gum infections; the risk increases with the severity of the oral infection Some studies have found that mothers of preterm, low birth weight infants tend to have more severe gum disease than mothers of normal birth weight babies. More research is needed to determine if gum infections do indeed contribute to babies being born too soon and too small. Among tobacco users , oral cancer is a significant concern. Survival and treatment outcomes depend largely on stage of diagnosis. Early detection has the potential to improve the prognosis and quality of life for those diagnosed with oral cancer. Oral cancer statistics show that less than 40 percent of oral cancer cases are diagnosed at an early stage.A number of conditions of the oral mucosa may present as white patches. Although the majority of white patches are of little significance, certain lesions are associated with pre-malignancy or malignancy. Unfortunately , the presence of any sinister lesion cannot be assesed by clinical appearance alone and definitive diagnosis, involving a biopsy, is mandatory whenever there is uncertainetly about the clinical diagnosis of an oral white patch Oral mucosal lesions OML were frequently diagnosed in skin diseased patients and varied systematically with age, gender, systemic condition . The high prevalence of OML emphasizes the importance of routine examination of oral mucosa in a dermatology clinic.

Abstract

Oral health amongst elderly living in nursing home facilities are rated poor in many countries. Poor oral health;in particular poorly controlled plaqueeffects certain medical conditions such as diabetes and heart conditions. The Oral Hygiene Instruction Card Program seeks out elderly residing in long term care facilities and provide them with a homecare screening. A homecare screening is done by a dental professionalwho takes a thorough look in the oral cavity using a pen light & tongue blade. This allows the resident or caregiver easy access to the resident’s prescribed oral hygiene plan and therefore becomes a part of their daily hygiene regimen. Introducing, The OHI Card Program; a global program structured for Dental Hygienist all over the world who are aware of this problem and want to finally put an end to it. Everything a provider will need to operate the OHI Card Programsuccessfully is right there at the web site from certification, training, and the necessary forms needed for ‘Event Day’. On Event Day the dental provider and an assistant will educate the nursing staff about an oral health topic related to this population and perform individual homecare screening on the residents using the Briers Facility Scoring System. A system we set up to score and compile our data. Afterwards the Director of the facility receives the Post Folder containing the ASAP List – containing the names of residents who need immediate attention, a Participating Dentist List to treat these residents, a Refill Guide - for when it’s time to refill dental aids, and Surveys to ensure an optimal level of quality of care is given. The OHI Card Program is designed to ensure that all people receive quality oral care.

Abstract

Obstructive Sleep Apnea has become a very important topic & research targetbecause of its recent discoveries on the extensive correlations with many different types of systemic illnesses such as cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, strokes, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, etc. Moreover, sleep apnea has been identified as a major contributor for economic growth hindrance due to the notorious effects on productivity loss. While the gold standard of treating sleep apnea has been Continuous Positive Airway Pressure(CPAP) for decades, the poor patient treatment compliance rate has pushed sleep apnea treatment to a much lower priority from different healthcare providers. Recently, Oral Appliance Therapy has emerged & become a very crucial treatment option to treat sleep apnea. Patients who have failed other sleep apnea treatments have expressed superb satisfaction for the mandibular advancement device due to its comfort & convenience. The pronounced relationship between dentition, tongue, palate, oral-pharyngeal structures and the airway indicates that dentists should be playing a very specific role in sleep medicine. Dental Sleep Medicine is the newest branch of dentistry & it will be the standard of care in the near future. All dentists should be familiarized with the pathophysiology of sleep apnea, & the treatment modality with different types of sleep oral devices. The demand for dental professionals to assist in sleep medicine will increase exponentially, & dental sleep medicine will become a vital bridge to bring dentistry and medicine to become a unique alliance to treat one of the most deadly epidemics in modern medicine.

Abstract

Number of completely edentulous patients is increasing due to increased life expectancy, considerably high number of adult & elderly patients still need dental treatment for their edentulism. Some of those patients cannot tolerate removable complete dental prosthesis & may require more sophisticated techniques Almost all patients have information about implant supported dental prosthesis to some extent & they prefer to have this kind of dental treatment because of increased retention & stability of artificial teeth. Unfortunately because of financial restrictions a high number of edentulous patients have to postpone implant supported prosthesis option. Osseo integration becomes an excellent treatment modality for completely edentulous patients. The better understanding of osseointegration has led to the one-stage surgeries and to minimize the period between the implant surgery & the prosthesis placement. The maxilla requires more implants than the mandible for a fixed prosthesis although four implants are suggested for either dental arch. In this presentation; the protocol for immediate loading and all on four treatment modality & long term outcome of immediately loaded all on four type dentures will be discussed.

Abstract

Lasers have been used in dentistry for the past 20 years. It is only recently that the field has evolved enough to catch the attention of dentists and patients alike. With a huge number of applications of lasers in dentistry a new era of painless, minimally invasive dentistry has been initiated. Apart from various applications of lasers in the fields of periodontology, endodontics, oral surgery and oral pathology, aesthetic dentistry is another field where dental lasers are revolutionizing the treatment armamentarium. Among the many benefits of lasers in dentistry are least invasive care, quicker healing response and excellent patient compliance. The presentation will give a brief overview of different procedures in daily dentistry that can be performed using lasers. The applications of both hard and soft tissue dental lasers in dentistry will be discussed, and the difference in wavelengths elaborated. The different types of lasers and laser systems and their significance in oral pathology, aesthetic dentistry, periodontology, and oral surgery will be highlighted. Presentation Objectives: By the end of the presentation the participants will be able to: 1. Restate the different applications of lasers. 2. Interpret the laser-tissue bio-interactions. 3.

Abstract

Periodontitis is the most common disease prevalent in the oral cavity and it has a global impact. The treatment involves removal of the etiological agents through scaling and other surgical procedures. It has been found out that oxidative stress has a crucial role in the pathogenesis of the disease and it forms the crux of the process which results in the disease condition. The global focus of research has been targeted towards this paradigm of the disease process. It has been brought to light that antioxidants are very beneficial in lowering the risk of infections, maintaining good heart health and in the prevention of some forms of cancer. Those disease processes and periodontitis have chronic inflammation playing a pivotal role in the pathogenesis. Antioxidants scavenge the free radicals, lower the oxidative burden on the chronically inflammed tissues and bring about tissue repair. This talk aims to highlight the role of oxidative stress and antioxidants in periodontitis. Also, my research work on antioxidants will be showcased for better understanding of the topic.

Abstract

Teeth are unrenewable, thus throughout ages great efforts were expended to try & sustain the remaining tooth structure of a badly broken or RCT tooth by protecting it without jeopardizing neither function nor esthetics. We are going to highlight, the introduction of crown to dentistry starting with gold crowns & ending with monolithic Y-TZP highly translucent crowns & what were the defects in each type that acted as a precursor to look for new substitutes. Charles H. L & started off esthetic dentistry in 1903 by devising the first porcelain jacket crown; however, due to multiple drawbacks, brittleness & poor fit mainly made its durability was questionable. Therefore, in late 1950s porcelain-fused to metal (PFM) aroused fulfilling both strength & providing a better marginal fit by the aid of lost wax fabricated coping, but esthetics was compromised. Thereby, feldspathic porcelain cores were prefaced, even though it was stronger than PFM, it was still opaque. In 1980s High leucite containing ceramics were invented (e.g. Empress), the first pressable ceramic ingots, esthetics was modified, but it was still contraindicated in posterior region; thus Vita introduced InCeram system (85% sintered alumina by volume) which was manufactured by slip-casting process. Two modifications were made replacement of sintered alumina by spinel & manufacturing core made of mixed alumina & Zirconium Oxide crystals which increased translucency & esthetics & increased flexural strength to 700 MPa respectively, this made it suitable for posterior restorations. 1990s, Procera introduced the All Ceram core (99.9% alumina core) & feldspathic ceramic was then layered, this was the first use of CAD/CAM. Even though it offered superior marginal fit and increased flexural strength (900-1300 MPa), it was only used for single crowns, so Ivoclar invented IPS Empress II which proved 70% success in multiple and single anterior crown units. Authentic then offered a replacement of metal framework in PFM to Zirconium dioxide using Press-to-metal technique using ceramic pressable ingots. In 2006 Lithium disilicate reemerged pressable ingots in crystallized milling block & named it CEREC which proved 170% more flexural strength compared to leucite reinforced ceramics by this metal alloys containing materials diminished. Currently, to avoid layering & to facilitate conservation of tooth structure by providing superior strength and esthetics by preparations up to 0.5mm thickness is established by monolithic Y-TZP crowns, which has been proved by multiple studies that is going to b discussed.

Abstract

The triad of diagnosis planning and execution is the key. To be successful in avoiding complications each of the 3 factors must be done well. My presentation will show the proper collection of dental data to make a proper diagnosis. I will show the use of cbct scan data in particular & the use of the clinical exam & wax ups to determine what quantity of tissue needs to be replaced along with teeth to be replaced. The correct diagnosis i.e. overdenture, hybrid or crown only. Execution using guided surgery & free hand technique will be illustrated. Avoidance of vital structures & teeth is a must. 30% of all dental malpractice suits are related to implants. The single largest instigating factor with implants is nerve damage. My presentation will show how to avoid injury to nerves & other vital structures. Even with good practice injuries can occur. I will discuss the management of all injuries including nerves, blood vessels & other structures.

Abstract

Periodontitis is the most prevalent inflammatory disease worldwide & is caused by a dysbiotic subgingival polymicrobial biofilm. The oral microbiome plays a key role for analysis of such polymicrobial community & it is important for individualised medicine. We have used rapid, high-resolution, robust taxonomic profiling of subgingival bacterial communities for early detection of periodontitis biomarkers. Here, was chosen Illumina MiSeq sequencing of the V1-V2 & V5-V6 hypervariable regions of the16S rRNA gene. The amplicons analysis was carried out with sample of 19 individuals, 9 of whom had been diagnosed with chronic periodontitis. Five hundred twenty-three operational taxonomic units (OTUs) were obtained from the V1-V2 region & 432 from the V5-V6 region. Key periodontal pathogens like Porphyromonas gingivalis, Treponema denticola, & Tannerella forsythia could be identified at the species level with both primer sets. However, beside these keystone pathogens, some commensal microorganisms can change to the inflammophilic pathobionts & the homeostasis in the microbial community could be disturbed promoting dysbiosis of biofilm. We have found by using metatranscriptome analysis that Prevotella nigrescens shifted from commensalism to virulence by up-regulating the expression of metallo proteases & the heme transporter.

Abstract

We see a broad mix of people from global cultures as patients in our dental practices. Do you know the specific cultural health risks & habits that can cause oral diseases and cancer? Oral disease is not only epidemic in some parts of the resource-poor world, but also shockingly prevalent in our resource-rich, affluent world. The work of the oral health provider is more important than ever due to global trends & the alarming rise in oral cancer incidence rates. Oral health professionals are in the best position to notice mucosal changes that may be pre-cancerous or cancerous, make the patient aware of them; those discoveries may save patients' lives. This course raises oral health professionals’ awareness of unique risks associated with widespread cultural & social oral habits, such as chewing betel nut, khat, smokeless tobacco, & using coca leaf or kola nut. Understanding the social & cultural context of these practices is integral to helping patients mitigate and overcome adverse effects on oral health, human wellness, & global health. This course illustrates how culturally homogenous but geographically dispersed populations can have a profound effect on local dental practices as people migrate worldwide. Make global connection & knowledge transfer about oral cancer, disease prevention, & oral health your superpower as you promote overall health. Participants will be powerfully engaged with graphic images & videos from 15 years of global research on cultural oral habits, with a specific focus on research based in Vietnam. Participant interaction is invited regarding the crisis in oral health in the dental practice & to motivate preventive solutions. Learning Objectives: Describe the benefits of awareness of oral cancer to both patient & provider Recognize the cultures which exhibit high oral risk behaviors & what those behaviors are Explain the results achieved through increased awareness of cultural risk habits Demonstrate skills & competence when seeing patients for oral exams to detect oral lesions Create a professional development plan to continue to learn & implement the awareness of global trends in oral cancer

Abstract

I believe that an orthodontist is not only a specialist dentist; he must have knowledge and interesting in art as dentistry is not about teeth treatment but also aesthetic of the face to be a successful orthodontist because science has no end. In some clinical cases in our daily practice we might face bone deficiency to replace missing teeth with dental implants instead of doing second surgery and bone augmentation .we can be more conservative depending on orthodontic means such as extrusion of hopeless teeth in other cases we can use mini implants to adjust complicated orthodontic cases and surgical cases such as skeletal openbite or interocclusal space deficiency. By orthodontic treatment we can extrude/elongate bone to prepare for implant without adding artificial bone. This lecture forImplantologist, Orthodontist & General practitioner. In this lecture I will talk about clinical cases to show the interrelation between ortho, implant & aesthetic dentistry & aesthetic medicine solving clinical cases with no surgery. It`s for specialist dentist & general practitioner. Cases in the lecture 1st will cover extrusion of hopeless anterior centrals to correct bone level before replacing them with dental implant instead of bone augmentation. 2nd case to gain more interocclussal space by intrusion of opposite posterior teeth. 3rdcase to correct skeletal openbite by using mini implant instead of orthognathic surgery. 4th case using mini implant to align tilted teeth to provide space for implant or bridge. 5th Some cases about gum smile treatment by mini implant & Botox beside some cases about aesthetic dentistry.

Abstract

Bioavailability is a key step in ensuring bioefficacy of bioactive food compounds or oral drugs. Bioavailability is a complex process involving several different stages: liberation, absorption, distribution, metabolism and elimination phases (LADME). Bioactive food compounds, whether derived from various plant or animal sources, need to be bioavailable in order to exert any beneficial effects. Through a better understanding of the digestive fate of bioactive food compounds we can impact the promotion of health and improvement of performance. Many varying factors affect bioavailability, such as bioaccessibility, food matrix effect, transporters, molecular structures and metabolizing enzymes. Bioefficacy may be improved through enhanced bioavailability. Therefore, several technologies have been developed to improve the bioavailability of xenobiotics, including structural modifications, nanotechnology and colloidal systems. Due to the complex nature of food bioactive compounds and also to the different mechanisms of absorption of hydrophilic and lipophilic bioactive compounds, unravelling the bioavailability of food constituents is challenging. Among the food sources discussed during this review, coffee, tea, citrus fruit and fish oil were included as sources of food bioactive compounds (e.g. (poly)phenols and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs)) since they are examples of important ingredients for the food industry. Although there are many studies reporting on bioavailability and bioefficacy of these bioactive food components, understanding their interactions, metabolism and mechanism of action still requires extensive work. This review focuses on some of the major factors affecting the bioavailability of the aforementioned bioactive food compounds.

Abstract

Prevention in Healthcare may be cost diminshing, but promotes in many cases, the Health and Welfare of the Individual. It can also prevent serious suffering of an Illness. “” An ounce of Prevention is worth an Pound of cure.”” Benjamin Franklin, talking over Money. In General Prevention in the Netherlands, we are doing an anti smoke programme for the Youth and on Cigarettes packages to prevent for Lungcancer and C.O.P.D. In the Area of Colon cancer, Mamma cancer,Skin cancer, there are early treatment and Prevention Programs. Adipositas and Dental decay have programs of healthy Foods and Drinks at School and Sportstimulation of the Young People. Also there are prevention programms for pregnancy and venerial diseases.. In Dentistry, 60 years ago ,girls of around 18 years,where extracted the whole dentition and was made a full denture. They could get married and had no cost by the dentist any more!! That was the Idea.To day we know that after some years there was no retention any more for the denture. Because there was a terrible lot of decay in the hole population of the Netherlands ,the Government started Drinking water fluoridation and a big program of Schooldentistry. After some years the opposition succeeded to stop the Drinkingwater Fluoridation. Dutch dentists started a prevention program with Fluoride Tablets, local Fluoride application, every half a year, in the Dental Office, Tooth brushing with fluoride Toothpaste and Healthy Food teaching at Schools. The treatment of the younger people till 18 years is paid by the Government. The Royal Dutch Dental Asociation started in 1970 a program to get Dental Hygienists as preventive help in dental prevention.First ladies were schooled in U.S.A. and later on a school in the Netherlands was started.Nowedays we have many Dental Hygienists in the Dental Offices and other preventiveProjects. Even we have Dental Assistents with a prevention Task informing our patients in the office. They are allowed to clean theeth, but no scaling. To day the Dental Hygienists like to learn drilling and filling, wich the Dutch Dental Profession dont like. They are for prevention and not for cure !! Anno 2017, the Dutch population has no Decay till the age of 40 , because of this Prevention Programs. The costs of Dental care are low in those Years. But after the age of70 years the eldery People get big problems, while they have problems with their Dental Hygiene when they start to get Dementia or Rheumatic Problems. Also the Dentists in the Netherlands are starting with cleaning programs for those Patients,mostly living in Eldery Homes. A good Preventive Measure !!

Abstract

An analysis of results attained in adolescent functional jaw orthopedics has led to a new understanding of what is actually occurring during treatment. These changes characterized by an altered cranio-mandibular posture have led to a more aggressive approach in the treatment of the adult populations. Management of maxillary width as well as the vertical posterior face height can lead to dramatic changes in the postural dynamic of the adult. These changes can have a profound effect not only on the occlusion but also the symptoms associated with this poor posture.Albert S.

Abstract

The predictability of original treatment protocol for osseointegration has led to developments aimed to simplify the techniques, reducing the healing time and minimize the delay between surgical and prosthetic phases. With immediate loading implant techniques it is possibile to avoid the second surgery and resolve the intolerable situation for the patient during the healing period. Good results have been achieved with immidiate loading techniques, particulary with implants placed in the anterior mandible and maxilla; several protocols have been proposed that allow the patient to wear fixed prosthesis during the osseointegrationperiod without compromising long-term success. Depending by each clinical situation and patients request it is possibile to achieve different prosthetic solution starting by the same surgical procedure. This rehabilitation’s protocol approach its change if we are in aesthetic area or if we are treating from single to multiple implant to replace missing teeth, Anyway after an accurate evaluation it is possible to achieve a predictable and reliable method with a high survival and success rate as confirmed in literature.

Abstract

Extraction of teeth is inevitably associated with distinctive changes in surrounding hard and soft tissue. Healing of extraction socket is characterised by the formation of bone with in the socket and the loss of width, height of alveolar ridge compromising the implant placement especially in the aesthetically important areas . Various methods like membrane, fillers,were used to stabilisethe coagulum and prevent the epithelium ingrowth. Socket shield prevents the resorption and achieves alveolar ridge preservation. It is a viable alternative to bone substitutes and guided bone regeneration. With the socket shield technique the submucosal portion of buccal root fragment of 1 to 2 7mm is retained as a shield 1mm coronal to the buccal alveolar plate followed by an immediate implant placement. Since the buccal portion of the bone remains untouched the biological integrity of the buccal periodontium remains intact which preserves the buccal alveolar ridge contour

Abstract

Nickel alloys are often used in orthodontics. Ni is a corrosive material of which toxicity, allergenicity and carcinogenicity are recognized. The aim of our research is to determine the susceptibility to the corrosion of NiTi alloy and its eventual influence to produce unwanted biological effects due to its high content of Ni. Moreover, it also aims to determine the influence of Nickel concentrations in saliva and its effects on human palatal cells (HEPM:Human Embryonic Palatal Mesenchyme). The results confirm that Ni is highly corrosive and toxic causing damage to our target cell (HEPM), an inflammatory reaction with Multinucleated Giant Cells. NiTi is more resistant to the corrosion due to the formation of a protected film TiO2. Nevertheless, any aggression applied on the material will break this film, make the material prone to corrosion and provoke Nickel release. Learning objectives: In order to maintain the ultimate health for patients, some guidelines were set to advice orthodontists how to: - Better use their chosen materials - Prevent or minimize the corrosion and the release of material degradation products from bands, brackets and /or wires into the oral environment - Reduce nickel intake

Abstract

In order to apply the proper treatment at the proper time, it is necessary to look first at the principles and strategy of early orthodontic intervention.The strategy and major techniques intervention include elimination of primary etiologic factors, correction of obvious problems, Interception of developing problems, prevention of worsening of obvious problems, preparation of an environment for normal occlusal development and function, guidance of growth in a more favorable direction by unlocking occlusal interferences which can have an adverse effect on occlusion, management of arch size-tooth size discrepancy, reduction in susceptibility to trauma and incisor fractures (increased overjet) and correction of skeletal dysplasia at an early stage of development.Early orthodontic treatment protocols can be performed in two separate phases. Depending on the type of problem, the age of the patient, and the stage of dentition, this procedure can be accomplished in one phase and sometimes in two phases. Occasionally, a three-phase treatment plan might be implemented if some correction of primary dentition is needed, such as elimination of posterior crossbite, and serial extractions in the mixed dentition must be followed by a final phase of treatment for the permanent dentition.First-phase of early orthodontic treatment offers many advantages to both the doctor and the patient. One phase early treatment consists of a type of interceptive or corrective treatment that is performed during the primary or mixed dentition stage to eliminate the cause and to correct the present abnormality. It is a single phase of comprehensive treatment usually started around the end of mixed dentition, just before the growth spurt and ending after the completion of canine eruption. This usually takes about 2 to 3 years.The major goal of late mixed dentition treatment is growth modification to take advantage of growth potential during the growth spurt. This type of treatment involves orthopedic management such as extra-oral traction, functional therapy and rapid maxillary expansion.Two-phase treatment is advocated to address skeletal, dental and neuromuscular problems such as abnormal habits, hyperactive musculature, crowding, dental crossbites, hypodontia, supernumerary teeth and problems of tooth eruption in order to eliminate or reduce the severity of the problem and a short phase of treatment will be required to align the permanent occlusion. I am presenting this topic with a few case reports.

Abstract

Recently, microbial contamination is considered the primary cause of root canal treatment failure. Periapical infections develop when microorganisms and/or their by-products contaminate pulpal and periradicular tissues. Therefore, the major goals of root canal treatment are to remove microbes from the root canals, to obturate the cleaned and shaped root canal system and to prevent re-contamination of obturated root canals. Proper obturated root canals can be re-contaminated when the coronal or radicular portion of root canal system is exposed to contamination by oral microorganisms. Therefore, in the recent days there has been a shift in the strategy of root canal treatment. The recent strategy focuses more and more on the ways of eliminating microbes to keep the root canal system free of microorganisms to prevent recurrence of infection and failure of root canal treatment. The current presentation highlights the recent antimicrobial strategies during root canal treatment and the significance of apical and coronal seal to prevent failure of root canal treatment.

Abstract

One major aspect of child management in the dental chair is managing dental anxiety, a worldwide problem and universal barrier to oral health care. It is important that dentists acknowledge that uncooperative children are not difficult children. Instead they have a personality, a special need, or a disability that requires both knowledge & special attention from the dentist, something that a dentist working with children & adolescents must be prepared to offer. The way a dentist interacts with the child patient will have a major influence on the success of any clinical or preventive care. In order to deliver high quality dentistry to a child whilst also developing a positive attitude towards dental health, the dentist should have a good understanding of the factors that might affect the behaviour of children in the dental setting. Sedation for paediatric patients is an essential tool in anxiety management and is used as an adjunct to behaviour management. Nitrous oxide inhalation sedation remains the preferred technique for the pharmacological managementof anxious paediatric dental patient & can be administered easily and safely to children in the dental office & is a potential alternative to general anaesthesia. This presentation reviews the factors that might influence a child’s behaviour before & during dental treatment & will address some of specific strategies that might be employed to minimize anxiety & help children to accept dentistry. A summary of the use of different technique of inhalation sedation will be addressed. Careful patient selection, adequate informed consent, monitoring vital signs during sedation & discharge criteria will be discussed.

Abstract

Objectives: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the predictive factors for survival of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) & investigate the overall & disease-specific survival outcomes of consecutive 80 primary OSCC patients who underwent operation in a single institution. Materials and methods: A total of 80 consecutive patients who underwent operation due to OSCC from January 2006 to June 2017 were included in this study. Patients were classified according to age, sex, pTNM stages, primary sites, smoking and alcohol drinking habits, depth of invasion, perineural & lymphovascular invasion, cell differentiation & postoperative radiotherapy. Kaplan-Meier methods were used to estimate the disease-specific & overall survival by patient’s groups & the log-rank test was used to compare survival curves. Cox regression methods were used to investigate the main independent predictors of survival. The χ2 test was used to assess differences between the variables and odds ratios were calculated. Results: A total of 23 patients died of OSCC during follow-up periods. Another five patients died of other diseases such as lung adenocarcinoma (n=1), cerebral infarction(n=1), general weakness (n=2) & pneumonia(n=1). Tongue cancer (n=26) was most common sites for primary origin followed by buccal mucosa (n=18), mandibular gingiva (n=15), maxillary gingiva (n=9), floor of mouth (n=9), retromolar trigone (n=2) & palate (n=1). TNM stage I was 20 patients followed by stage II (n=22), & stage IV (n=84). Stage III was not found in this study. Overall survival of all patients was 64.2% & disease-specific survival was 71.6%. Disease-specific survival of stage I & II was 100%. In stepwise Cox regression the two predictors selected for disease-specific survival were pTNM stages (p<0.0001, odd ratio=19.633) & presence of metastatic lymph node (p=0.0004, odd ratio=0.1039). Conclusion: OSCC has been shown a poor prognosis; however, there was improved survival outcomes compared with past studies. Advanced stage & presence of metastatic lymph node showed poorer survival than early stage OSCC & negative neck node. Invasion depth, cell differentiation & postoperative radiotherapy were not related with survival. Stage I and II OSCC showed excellent survival results in this study. Keywords: oral squamous cell carcinoma, survival analysis, prognostic factors, metastatic lymph node, TMM stage

Abstract

Many of dentists think of Botox and fillers primarily as a cosmetic treatment for lines & wrinkles on the face. Dentists are sometimes afraid that Botox & fillers belong to medical arena and only physicians should perform these procedures. First of all, we are part of the medical arena. Secondly, Botox and Fillers have now been increasingly used in dentistry as well due to their therapeutic uses in treatment of certain oral conditions. Most dentists are not aware of the substantial benefits of Botox & Fillers that have an adjunctive therapy in fixed prosthodontics. Therefore, this presentation will be directed to answer an important question: Should fixed prosthodontist use Botox & Fillers?! It is certainly time to recognize the answer.

Abstract

Early Childhood Caries (ECC) also named as rampant caries or baby bottle syndrome is one of the most prevalent chronic childhood diseases. It is described by the presence of one or more decayed, missing, or filled tooth surfaces on any primary tooth in children up to 71 months of age. There are different preventable factors which make the child susceptible to ECC. This disease has many effects on the child’s health. It can cause lots of functional problems and also has negative effects on the child’s quality of life. According to the negative outcome of this problem, it is necessary to know the risk factors of this disease. It can help us find impressive ways to prevent ECC. The aim of this article is introducing the etiologic factors of ECC & also recommending new methods to prevent it. Information included in this article is achieved by Pub Med search and covers the data from 1971 as well as my researches on ECC.

The present lecture describes a well-defined protocol for the treatment of esthetic cases with the use of ceramic laminate veneers. The protocol involves different branches of Dentistry – periodontal therapy, mucogingival surgery, restorative, orthodontics, prosthodontics. Every step should be executed in a very strict order: • intra- and extraoral esthetic analysis of the patient, with photographs & video • digital previsualization by means of Digital Smile Design (DSD) • clinical previsualization by means of mock-up or APT(Aesthetic Pre-evaluative Temporary) • if needed, orthodontic, mucogingival, endodontic treatments • minimally invasive teeth preparation, driven by mock-up & silicone indeces • ceramic laminate veneers manufacturing • try-in & adhesive cementation. The protocol will be illustrated with some clinical cases, where all the above-mentioned steps were carried out.The correct use of modern materials, in combination with rigorous adhesive procedures, allow a minimally invasive & highly esthetic treatment, with adequate function as well as a perfect integration in the harmony of patient’s face & personality.

Abstract

Oral fungal infection is a problem that continues to challenge the healthcare sector. New antifungals & new therapeutic strategies are needed to address this challenge. We previously reported the antifungal properties of a monoterpene phenol “Eugenol” against different Candida strains & have observed that the addition of methyl group to eugenol drastically increased its antimicrobial potency. Based on the results & the importance of medicinal synthetic chemistry, we synthesized eugenol-tosylate and its congeners (E1-E6) & tested their antifungal activity against different Candida albicans isolates alone & in combination with FLC by determining fractional inhibitory concentration indices & isobolograms. Minimum inhibitory concentration results confirmed that all the tested C. albicans strains were variably susceptible to the semi-synthetic derivatives E1-E6, with MIC values ranging from 1-62µg/ml. The test compounds in combination with FLC exhibited either synergy (36%), additive (41%) or indifferent (23%) interactions, however, no antagonistic interactions were observed. Like their precursor eugenol, all the derivatives showed significant impairment of ergosterol biosynthesis coupled with down regulation of the important ergosterol biosynthesis pathway gene-ERG11. The results were further validated by docking studies, which revealed that the inhibitors snugly fitting the active site of the target enzyme, mimicking fluconazole, may well-explain their excellent inhibitory activity. Our results suggest that these compounds have a great potential as antifungals, which can be used as chemosensitizing agents with the known antifungal drugs.

Abstract

Recent technologies in materials science & engineering allowed designing of composite materials with superior mechanical, physical, & biological properties that far exceed those of pure elements. Beginning at nano-scale level, the building blocks of smart materials are assembled & engineered with full control of their behavior once placed inside human body. In combination with principles of tissue engineering, restoration of damaged and atrophic tissue is now possible. New biodegradable composites & non-degradable ceramics are currently available for use as implants, scaffolds for tissue engineering, & as prosthetic appliances for damaged tissue. Controlled rate of degradation & ion release are adjusted to accelerate ingrowth of new tissue especially bone. This lecture will present several tracks of smart materials used to manage difficult cases where traditional bone grafting & implant placement are compromised. Nano-porous zirconia scaffolds enriched with hydroxy apatite are custom made using CBCT and CAD/CAM technology & provide a direct method for management of severely atrophic alveolar ridges. Similar approach uses biodegradable polymers which are designed to be totally replaced by host tissue. Restoration of facial esthetics after trauma & resective surgeries could be similarly achieved using bone replacement therapy using advanced biopolymers. Case presentations will be demonstrated in every presented track focusing on total ridge augmentation, total reconstruction of resected mandible & condyle, and scaffolds for plastic surgery

Abstract

At present day tooth preparation, using correctly the new adhesive materials & techniques, & performing tooth-colored restorations are the major objectives of modern restorative dentistry. Rebuilding a badly broken endodontically treated tooth usually requires an immediate coronalseal to preventbacterialmicroleakage & consequently the failure of endodontic treatment. In Anterior endodontically treated teeth the techniques are challenging & demand precise protocols in order to obtain esthetics & function through direct restorations. We can preserve a great amount of sound enamel & dentinifwerestoreposteriortooth with direct composite. This restorations must be strong enough to resist the occlusion forces while being greatly esthetic at the same time We need to achieve a properindication & techniqueto use the post to retain a core built up. It must be carefully evaluated the great opportunity of indirect adhesive restoration to delay the full crown. This session is designed by Professor Antonio Cerutti to inform the dental professional how best to overcome these challenges. Working with a strategic approach that will lend itself to highly consistent outcomes, each delegate will raise their skill level, giving them more confidence when approaching these situations in everyday practice.

Abstract

Observation of the nature & in our case of the natural tooth, not limited to the single entity, but in relation to all adjacent biological structures ,gums , lips , face, included the personality and the character of the patient , allow us to comprehend better the relationship between form & function & biologic integration . Starting from objective parameters , with our sensibility , perception knowledge and ability we can individualize the restorations and make them more dynamic & life like, acting on morphological & optical aspects which affect the appearance of natural teeth and of course our restorations. The goal is to involve and to address dental technicians to understand some of the clinical aspects & to apply them in laboratory procedures in order to respect the biological structure , & at the same time, involve clinicians also in order to gain more confidence in technical steps . With this TEAM work philosophy it is possible to improve the intercommunication between clinicians & technicians in order to achieve success in the final restoration.

Abstract

Nowadays there has been a paradigm in dentistry, ‘smile design’. The patients do not seek just healthy & proper aligned teeth, but beautiful custom made smiles. Consequently to keep up with this change, the conventional concept of orthodontic therapy that has been mainly based on the ideal occlusion & cephalometric values has been modified to a new concept based essentially on soft tissues & esthetics. In this concept by combining orthodontics with other dental disciplines, the treatment planning is not limited to the teeth but the balance & the proportions among the entire facial structures. This interdisciplinary approach provides the synergism of each disciplines specialized field into a comprehensive therapy that ensures optimal patient care. The compounding effect of the successive therapies lets each provider build upon & enhance the previous providers results. In this lecture many complex cases will be presented that have been treated with the micro-mini-macro esthetics approach by the interdisciplinary team.

Abstract

Oral health affects general health by causing considerable pain & suffering & by changing what people eat, their speech and their quality of life & well-being. Oral health also has an effect on other chronic diseases. Oral health should be defined in general physical, psychological and social well-being terms in relation to oral status. Disruptions in physical, psychological & social functioning are important in assessing oral health. Traditional measures use mainly clinical indices, though there are alternatives using measures of oral health-related quality of life in sociodental approaches to assessing need. Chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes & caries are increasing, with the implication that quality of life related to oral health, as well as general quality of life, may deteriorate. Because oral & other chronic diseases have determinants in common, more emphasis should be on the common risk factor approach. The key concept underlying future oral health strategies is integration with this approach, a major benefit being the focus on improving health conditions in general for the whole population & for groups at high risk, thereby reducing social inequities. By integrating oral health into strategies for promoting general health & by assessing oral needs in sociodental ways, health planners can greatly enhance both general & oral health.

Abstract

Individual clinical expertise is one the cornerstones of evidence-based dentistry (EBD) & its integration with scientific evidence & patient needs & preference yields toward guidelines intended to primarily help clinicians in making their decisions. Based on this definition of EBD it’s clear that clinical everyday practice is not only guided by EBD, but serves also as one of its major inputs. Nonetheless, the acceptance level of EBD continuous progress & resulting recommendation is quite poor among clinicians who struggle to comprehend & integrate such guidelines. The result is low level of confidence in EBD 7 consequent reduced capacity applying the most to-date efficient approach. This presentation aims to highlight some of the major reasons of the difficult interaction between dental practice & scientific research through illustrative cases. Recent research methods and results presentation for bridging such gaps are also discussed thoroughly, emphasizing the need for simple, clear & direct scientific research outputs, accompanied by an enhanced capacity of clinicians in acquiring, interpreting & integrating such outputs.

Abstract

In the elderly population a number of factors can contribute to excessive tooth wear with subsequent reduction of the VDO. This can have adverse effects on an individual’s ability to chew food, on their facial appearance & on their quality of life. Correction of reduced VDO in dentate individuals is a complex and challenging process that is typicallyassociated with potential risks. Careful diagnosis of potential cases and drawing appropriate treatment plans needs a fair amount of experience & skill to ensure successful & satisfying results. Typically more than one option exists for treatment of such complex cases & the patient must be made aware of all possible treatment options. The process of case presentation using diagnostic wax mock-ups & extra- & intra-oral images, review of treatment options & obtaining patient consent to proposed treatment are essential elements for success. In this presentation two cases that needed full-mouth rehabilitation due to loss of VDO will be presented & discussed in detail. In one case zirconia crowns were exclusively used, while in the other a combination of cast gold & porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns were utilized. Diagnosis, treatment options & step-by-step treatment stages will be presented. At the end of this presentation the audience will be able to list the causes of loss of VDO in the elderly dentate individuals, properly diagnose such cases in order to identify predisposing factors and draw treatment options with pros & cons of each.The audience will also become familiar with the treatment stages from correction of the VDO with provisional restorations, appliance to selection of the most appropriate definitive restorations.

Abstract

At present, computer technology has made a historically important impact in the field of education by enhancing students’ learning. It can act as a support tool for the teacher & offers pedagogical advantages for the student. Research in technology enhanced learning has been driven both by developments in computer technology & more importantly, developments in theories of learning & teaching. In student-centred learning (SCL), the student (learner) is placed in the centre of the teaching-learning process. Properly implemented SCL can lead to increased motivation to learn, greater retention of knowledge, deeper understanding, & more positive attitudes towards the subject being taught. Computer-based instructional programs commonly known as e-learning resources are globally used self-learning tools. Learning flexibility is the most often cited advantage of e-learning & other benefits include the ability of the learners to control the content, learning sequence & pace of learning. E-learning resources are used increasingly in medical & dental education with increasing research evidence to guide its design & development. However, readiness for acceptance of e-learning resources as a mode of SCL tool could differ among students due to variations of learner characteristics. Therefore, further research is needed to determine how best to use these programs in conjunction with current teaching methods in a blended approach. The aim of this presentation is to share my research experience in the field of Use of e-learning for SCL in dental education.

Abstract

Today’s topic is A new approachto push the boundary. The present orthodontic treatment has a tendency for utilizing novel diagnostic equipment ,instrumentand materials. Of course,an improvement and development of these fields have significantly contributed to dentistry, & their importance has not changed, however we are inclined to forget fundamental questions such as “What is the ultimate purpose of an orthodontic treatment?” or “Where is the final destination of an orthodontic treatment?”  Also, I want to clarify questions which have arisen from my 45years of clinical experiences, “ What is the real meaning of Angle Class I?” I hope this lecture will be a hint to break the stalemate facing our clinical dentistry now. I also intended this lecture will not reconsider a fundamental question of orthodontics but also of general dentistry. For this purpose, many advanced clinicians and researchers of my friends provided generously their important data to this lecture.Ihope to share these fruits among other people who are engaged in clinical orthodontics all over the world, & this will be a small contribution to improve this field.

Abstract

A total of 505 patients in general practice 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 effective nutrition for periodontal tissue. The indicts of patient perceived importance of the periodontal health were derived & each compared with actual effectiveness as determined from a sample of 250 patients opinion. Although the majority of patient's 18 of 25 nutrition as being very effective, there was no significant association with patient perceived nourishment effectiveness & actual effectiveness. The implications for patient training are discussed. Introduction: By comparing the effect of long term workout in the fitness gyms & the habit of consuming hard rational food daily with a weekly schedule, could be very likely & would be support the oral health indeed. What to do to have aesthetically & functionally prevention method for further gum & periodontal diseases, which could be less aggressive and conservative, cheap & home treating methods. In case one cares about his body's physique, also he can care about the Gum structure as well. Materials & Methods: To have a review, Bundles attached to teeth & their dis attachments provoke further injuries. Let's take a look at these bundles, if we peel away alveolar septa & papillae & marginal part, we can see the bundles (periodontal ligament), (1) which is composed of bundles of connective tissue's fiber that anchor the teeth within the jaw. Each bundle is attached to cementum covering the root of the tooth. The other end is embedded in bony tooth sockets (alveolar socket). These bundles of fibers allow the tooth to withstand the forces of biting & chewing. Endomysium, the connective tissue sheaths that surround each skeletal muscle fiber separating the muscle cells from one another. It also contains capillary nerves & lymphatics. As an illustration, Organization of skeletal tissues, Intact skeletal muscle. Biceps bra chi are attached to bones through tendons.connective tissue. The entire muscle is surrounded by connective tissue called epimysium.(2) The muscle is organized into bundles called premium. Each fascicles contains many individual fibers surrounded by connective tissue called Endomysium. In some muscles there might only be relatively few fibers such as in muscle of the eye in which these are only 10 of fibers. In some of the bigger muscles in the body there may be thousands of fibers, for instance, there can be up to 400000 fibers in the bicep muscle in front of the arm. Each of these fibers is surrounded by sheaths of fibrous tissue membrane or fascia called Endomysium (endo- means within). Therefore, by having regular training in fitness centers our extremities muscles can strength & can have an aesthetic & supportive function for skeletal system. Results: As within skeletal growth, the muscles in the body also grow at irregular rates. The enlargement of muscles (hypertrophy) makes them thicker but muscle fibers can also get longer. With certain types of training and genetics, muscle mass can change.(3) According to the aging of muscular system, one reason is reducing the strength & power of the muscles, therefore, by training the endomysiums within the periodontal ligament with special training as well as eating hard foods & chewing them we can train them exactly like fitness club. The experiment above 18-25% of those patient who had answered to the test satisfactory had a healthier gum structure in comparing with the unsatisfactory ones. By making some clinics besides gyms & sport centers which prescribe daily,weekly,monthly schedules to fit the gum muscles with special measurement individually for each patient can make a revolution in gum and oral health history. Conclusion: Due to the proper nourishment for the newborn babies we acknowledge that they are effective to form the jaws, gums, teeth, & help them nourish well and form the proper shape. Therefore, repeating this process could be an aid for preventing any lack of support or lease to make further diseases as these nutrition only strength the body mass around teeth.

Abstract

High more was the first to give a detailed description of maxillary antrum .in the late 19th centuary first detailed systemic and anatomical & pathological descriptions of the paranasal sinuses was published by Zuckerkandl. .maxillary sinus is pyramidal in shape considering its intimate relation to the maxillary posterior teeth ,with its base adjacent to nasal wall and apex pointing to the zygoma .topography of the maxillary sinus is variable due to the range of anatomical bony structures forming this cavity . Assessment of maillary sinus is a herculean task In recent times with advent of new diagnostic technology especially three dimensional view CBCT as diagnostic tool stands out especially with advantage of low dose ,greater sensitivity in detection of small bony structures & 3-D visualisation of maxillofacial anatomy & pathology. With great demand of accurate measurements & bone architecture quality & implant placement in close proximity to maxillary sinus, sinus lift procedures ,performing endoscopic procedures with high rate of orbital complications where knowing the anatomical structures takes a prime importance & also in otolaryngological & maxillofacial surgical practice and in diagnosis of symptomatic and asymptomatic maxillary sinus pathologies . CBCT as diagnostic tool is considered appropriate for maxillary sinus visualization

Abstract

The human body is comprised of complex systems, which are interconnected with each other. Because of the way, the human body is made, one organ of the body can have an impact on other organs of it. Oral health affects people physically & psychologically and influences how they grow, enjoy life, look, speak, chew, taste food and socialize, as well as their feelings of social well-being. The oral hygiene measures related to professional level, level of education, & periodontal maintenance. Some studies report that oral health has an impact on food choice and on the intake of key nutrients, causing various nutritional problems. Recent researches on oral & general health have shown a link between the two. With more than 90% of systemic diseases having oral symptoms. These symptoms can include swollen gums, sores, ulcers, dry mouth & more,,, The following diseases are an example of a systemic disease which has symptoms expressed in the mouth like diabetes, leukemia, oral cancer, pancreatic cancer, heart disease & kidney disease. Research has also shown that poor dental hygiene and gum disease can directly increase the risk of heart disease, heart attack, diabetes, dementia, rheumatoid arthritis and even stroke. Women with poor dental health have also shown higher rates of preterm & low-birth-weight children. To prevent these health issues, practicing good oral hygiene is very important. People at an early age should get into good practices. Regular dental visits, brushing regularly, flossing & watching what they eat are all important steps in preventing dental diseases & keeping you in good health.

Abstract

Zirconia based ceramics are a wide family that depend on the single element zirconium oxide in addition to small traces of doping agents that control the mechanical, physical, & chemical behavior of the material. Examining the ultra-structure of zirconia reveals grains surrounded by grain-boundaries; two elements that have a great effect on the fatigue resistance of zirconia. In this lecture, we will shed light on the effect to the type & concentration of the stabilizing element on the fatigue resistance of zirconia. How small variations in the grain size & concentration of alumina can influence translucency of the material. Tips & tricks during milling, sintering, & finishing the framework can reduce chipping & delamination failures & enhance the crack resistance of zirconia. Zirconia can also be used as implant abutment, a one piece dental implant, as non-resorbable scaffold, or as an adhesive restoration. Selection criteria, clinical limitations, & fabrication technique of each application will be illustrated. However, before investing in such a delicate and expensive option, we must make sure that the clinical situation is in perfect match with the properties of the treatment of choice in order to avoid embarrassing failure.

Abstract

Intraradicular infection produces the majority of apical periodontitis. In general this kind of apical lesions are growing slow & do not very large. Clinical, the patients dont acute pain often unless the lesions are in acute inflammatory exacerbation. These periapical lesions are diagnosed by routine radiographic exams. Sometimes become large with alveolar bone involvement & adjacent teeth. The treatment of this kind of lesions are surgical one in the traditional way and often subject to various complications. Literature review does not show a direct evidence that all of them need surgical intervention. It is accepted that all lesions should be initially treated with a nonsurgical conservative approach. Hence, a non-surgical endodontic procedure should be considered for treatment of these lesions. The conference aim is the healing potential of nonsurgical endodontic treatment in the management of large periapical lesions.

Abstract

Root canal obturation can be time consuming & complicated. New filling systems such as Smartsealand GuttaFlow 2were suggested for use with a simple, single cone obturating technique. Aim The aim of this study was to compare sealing ability of different matched new single-cone obturation systems using glucose penetration model. Methodology Seventy human maxillary central incisors were selected & their crowns were cut to give approximately 15 mm of root length from the coronal surface to the apex of the root. The root canals were instrumented using crown down technique & divided into six experimental groups (n=10) and positive and negative control groups (n=5). The experimental groups were filled as follow: Group 1, lateral compaction gutta-percha+ AH plus Group 2, single cone gutta-percha+ AH plus Group 3,single cone gutta-percha + GuttaFlow2 Group 4, single cone RealSeal Resilon point + RealSeal SE Group 5, single cone ProPoint + SmartPastsealer; Group 6, single cone ProPoint + Smart Pastebio sealer. All samples were stored for one week & the long-term leakage along the entire root canal filling was measured at 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29 days using glucose leakage model With the leakage test device coronal 1 mol L glucose solution was forced under a hydrostatic pressure of 1.5 kPa toward the apical part of the root which immersed in an apical reservoir containing 0.2% sodium azide Leakage was measured by calculating the concentration of leaked glucose mg dl in apical reservoir with the enzymatic glucose oxidase method using spectrophotometer device Glucose reactivity test with the materials used in the current study was performed by inserting discs set sealers & pieces of core materials in test tubes containing glucose solution another test tubes containing the same glucose solution but without test materials were used as control After one week the glucose concentrations in the solutions were measured by spectrophotometer device any significant decrease in glucose concentration in experimental test tubes indicated glucose reaction with the materials. Differences of glucose concentrations within and between the experimental groups were statistically analyzed with Kruskal-Wallis and Man-Whitney tests. The level of significance was set at p < 0 .05. Results All testing materials did not show any reaction with glucose Negative control group showed no leakage during experimental periods while the positive control group showed gross leakage at 1 day period. At 1 day period no glucose leakage was occurred in all groups except the group 3 which showed immediate glucose leakage 1.9 ±1.72mg dl All groups showed significant increase in leakage amount at 8 days period then the leakage slightly gradual increased in the next experimental periods was observed except groups 5 & 6 which showed slight decrease in leakage but without significant difference. At 15, 22 & 29days periods Kruskal-Wallis statistical test did not show significant differences among groups Conclusions All materials & techniques used in the current study did not prevent glucose leakage. Single cone technique could be an alternative easy & fast technique to lateral condensation technique regardless the type of obturating system provided that the size & taper of master single cone is matching to the size & taper of the prepared canal The Smartseal RealSeal Resilon point,RealSeal SE and GuttaFlow 2systems did not show any superiorly over gutta-percha AH plussystem either single cone or lateral condensation technique. Keywords Smartseal Realseal SE Guttaflow2 Single cone Glucose leakage model.

Abstract

Endodontic treatment success depends on a combination of appropriate instrumentation, effective irrigation & decontamination of root canal spaces to apices, & obturation of the root canals. The objective of endodontic treatment is to prevent or eliminate infection within the root canal. In every root canal system there are spaces that cannot be cleaned mechanically & where cleaning is dependent on thorough chemo-mechanical debridement of pulpal tissue, dentin debris, & infective microorganisms. Infection control is critical for the success of nonsurgical endodontic treatment. Irrigation of the root canal is paramount in determining periapical tissue healing. Although NaOCl is the most significant irrigating solution, no single irrigant can accomplish all the tasks required by irrigation. Understanding the mode of action of various available & commonly used solutions is important for optimal irrigation. New developments in the composition of the irrigating solutions will help to advance safe & effective irrigation.This lecture will discuss the modes of action of various irrigation materials, their interactions, advantages and limitations. Emphasis will be given on the modern irrigation techniques & equipments used to deliver irrigating solutions & to enhance their capability in providing ideal environment for obturation & periapical healing.

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 * 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 & 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 & the two groups matched p>0.05 for operative time. For change in swelling, T-tests was applied & 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

How not to miss a malignant lesion of the oral mucosa? Miss a malignant lesion of the oral cavity may be a fault if the dentist does not used means recognized by the acquired data of science to make his diagnosis. Diagnosis delay is pejorative for the patient. The consequences are a loss of chance of recovery andmore iatrogenic tratments. So how not to miss a malignant lesion of the oral mucosa? - By understanding the biology of cancer based on genetic mutations that are at the stage of initiation clinically imperceptible. At this stage it would be necessary to have molecular diagnostic tools to identify the genetic mutations and interpret them in terms of prognosis. Unfortunately, these tools do not exist today in clinical practice. The only way to act at this stage is to loocking for oral cancer risk factors smoking, alcohol, nutrition, sun exposure and to do prevention. - By systematically loocking at oral mucosa to search for white and red patches, ulcers, new growth and unexplained tooth mobility. The examination of the oral mucosa will be done using an incandescent light. The adjunctive diagnostic tools based on salivary markers, dyes, chemiluminescence or fluorescence can improve the sensitivity of the incandescent light examination but their low specificity makes them difficult to use in non-specialized practice. - By touching the mucosa to loock for for induration. This sign has limitations because it is not specific, and is often missing at the first stage of the cancer or for dysplasia. Furthermore, palpation is difficult to interpret for lesions situated on the gingiva or palatal mucosa. Palpation sometimes causes bleeding that is common on cancerous lesions. Palpation of the cervical lymph nodes must also be systematic to identify metastatic lymphadenopathy. - By requiring blood laboratory tests to search for one hemopathy facing lesions like hypertrophic gingivitis, necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis & multiple ulcers of the oral mucosa. - By performing a biopsy of any suspicious lesion. Finally, the lack of healing of a lesion is the more sensitive sign of cancers, whatever their origin, their location and stage.

Abstract

Introduction: a project of an ambulatory clinical history model and protocol in dental emergencies is proposed in order to increase the patients' attention & quality of evolution, by obtaining a detailed epidemic history of the affection main complaint. Objective to propose an ambulatory clinical history model and protocol in dental emergencies. Material and Methods a bibliographical revision was carried out taking into account the scientific & classic literature from the last five years up to date, in Spanish & English language, using the databases Ebsco and Scielo & a selection according to a real adjustment to academic & practical approaches of current Cuban Stomatology School. Development when we analyze the preexistent clinical history stomatology models in Cuban National Health System, some limitations are appreciated, mainly in dentistry emergencies, when patients present a dental emergency, or when they suffer from an illness not registered before. It also occurs in those patients not belonging to a determined health area when they present some symptoms that are not listed in certified models at that dental health center before. Those difficulties make the diagnosis of the consulted affection & its treatment become complicated, carrying difficulties for their evolution and cure. Conclusions to present a model and protocol of ambulatory clinical history in dental emergencies will allow an appropriate planning, when having a clinical document that registers the procedures carried out with the patients, avoiding unnecessary investigations; such as diagnostics mistake, optimizing the quality in the continuity of the dentistry attention. Key words: clinical history, urgency attendance, medical records, dental models, ambulatory care, dental emergencies.

Abstract

Dental caries is a common stone-age oral health diseases affecting more than 70% people in developing communities. In most of these communities, especially among low-income, they bear the triple burden of un-accessible, un-affordable & unavailable of professionally trained oral health providers. Community based healthcare workers CBHW were recently introduced to alleviate the shortages of health professionals in South Africa. Their training takes 5-10 days. The aim of this evaluation was to qualitatively assess oral health promotion knowledge & messages being presented to communities. Methods Data were collected in target communities at hospitals, & clinics from semi-structured focus groups of CBHW leaders & members n=56, informal CBHW observations & informal interviews with CBHW trainers & community members. Results:Significant percent of them have no formal education, faced socioeconomic & health inequalities. In spite of these and other challenges, CBHW appreciate their role in the communities. Respondents displayed sufficient oral health promotion knowledge & the role of sugar in dental caries & diabetes. CBHW trainers believed that aformal demonstrationon brushing techniques & workshops on oral health promotions & diseases prevention willempower them. There were, however, some concernsabout lack of oral healthcare services & educational materials in majority of the hospitals & clinics. Despite this, communities were positive about their role & believed in them. Conclusions: This study presents a unique opportunity to assess the implementation & sustainability of using CBHW as oral health promotersin environments of limited resources, considerable burden of oral diseases & chronic diseases & extensive socioeconomic challenges. The findings suggest that through enhancement of knowledge, transfer of appropriate oral health promotion messages & disease prevention knowledge, participation of CBHW as oral health promoters & educators can be effectively promoted in resource limited settings. Oral health interventions that promote the participation & empowerment of communities can be feasible & accessible, thereby assisting in addressing the growing burden of dental caries & other chronic diseases in developing communities.

Abstract

Aims: The aim of this research was evaluation the tissue reaction of newly prepared calcium based cement & compares the result with polycarboxylate cement, biodentine material. Materials and methods: The powder of the new cement composed of Calcium oxide prepared from egg shell, Hydroxy appetite prepared from eggshell , Magnesium oxide, Bismuth oxide, and Calcium acetate. The Liquid: polyacrylic acid. The new cement was checked for tissue reaction, Polycarboxylate cement from Harvard, Germany & biodentine from Septodont, France were used as a control positive materials. The new cement, polycarboxylate cement and biodentine implanted in the subcutaneous tissue of twenty rabbits. The animals were divided randomly into four groups, five rabbits for each group, for four time intervals 3, 7, 14, 28 days, with four implants per each animal. For each rabbit four pockets were made on the skin of the back of the rabbit two on each side of the vertebral column. In the three pockets the tested materials are implanted while the fourth pocket is left empty for a control negative group. At the end of the experimental periods the animals were sacrificed by anesthetic overdose. The skin overlaying the implants were incised processed and slides were performed. All slides were examined with the aid of two specialists in oral pathology. The inflammatory scores used in this study are: Grade 0: absence of inflammatory cells or presence of less than 5 cells. Grade 1: mild inflammation an average of fewer than 25 inflammatory cells per high power field. Grade II: moderate inflammation an average of 25-124 inflammatory cells per high power field. Grade III severe inflammation an average of 125 or more inflammatory cells per high power field. Statistical analysis included: (A) Descriptive Statistics, (B) Kruskal-Wallis Test. used as Inferential Statistics. Results : The results of this study found that in three days post-operative period, all groups showed sever inflammatory reaction. For all groups, the grade of inflammation subsided with time but with different rates. The inflammatory process in new calcium based cement and biodentine specimens had been shown to subside faster than polycarboxylate cement. Except for polycarboxylate cement group, the other groups showed no inflammation complete healing after 28 days. Conclusion: The new calcium based cement shows tissue reaction comparable to biodentine material and better than polycarboxylate cement.

Abstract

Inspired by the everyday practice, after twenty years of basic through clinical & radiographics scanners, MRI, using also unique images and videos by 3D animation, we had developed a 3D animation project, cranio-facial-universe.com CFU for teaching & research in the dental world, in collaboration with the faculty of LILLE II. The CFU is also our conceptualization project, because fundamental data importance of genetics and acquired knowledge, syntheses, clinical findings & conclusions on the essential element of the mandible, have led us the Mandibular Three-dimensional Concept and Morpho-Functional Mandibular Rehabilitation MFMR but since a rehabilitation must take into consideration the craniofacial set, this new conception of Global Rehabilitation is renamed Morpho-Functional Craniofacial Rehabilitation, it is physiological, gnathological and functional. The MFCFR considers the FIVE anatomicophysiological entities constituting the manducatory device the basal bone morphology, the dento-dental articulation, the disco-ligamentous system, the neuromuscular system and the general posture, when these five entities are harmonious we were able to the identify FOUR conditions of the balanced function of the manducation: Centered Relation Functional 1st condition, Straight Opening-Closing movement & reciprocally 2nd condition, Physiological Occlusion 3rd condition and Functional Chewing & reciprocally, all of this followed by the act of swallowing, this is the NORMAL Functioning of the Mandatory Device FMD. On this basis & when one or more entities are unbalanced, the manducation is abnormal, it is the definition of the Dysfunctions of the Mandatory Device DMM of the MFCFR, resulting in a new classification based on etiopathogenesis of the various syndromes; adaptive minor or adaptive major or pathological. The provisional or final treatments Dento-Facial Orthopedics, occlusal balancing by removable mandibular guide occlusal gutter or joint guide by composite addition, prostheses or posturology ... must aim at the preservation or reproduction of the five entities & the four conditions, in other words, a global Morpho-Functional Cranio-Facial Rehabilitation. Its ultimate purpose is the functional development of the masticatory system in order to make it reproducible, stable, protected, executed and controlled by the neuromuscular system via the mandible.

Abstract

The most common cause of pulp necrosis in an immature tooth is dental caries or trauma which causes cessation of root development. Such cases require either extraction or root canal treatment. Currently many treatment modalities are available, out of which tissue engineering (Regeneration and Revascularization) holds a great success value. These potential approaches include root canal revascularization, postnatal stem cell therapy, pulp implant, scaffolding implant, three dimensional cell printing, injectable scaffolds and gene therapy. Regeneration can be accomplished through the activity of the cells from the pulp, periodontium, vascular, and immune system. Most therapies use the host’s own pulp or vascular cells for regeneration It is a novel and highly exciting field of research which has shown promising results and is a good prospect in pediatric endodontics. The objectives of regenerative pulp procedures are to regenerate pulp like tissue, ideally, the pulp dentin complex; regenerate damaged coronal dentin and regenerate resorbed root. Revascularization procedures have the potential to heal a partially necrotic pulp, which can be beneficial for the continued root development of immature teeth. It involves disinfecting the root canal system, providing a matrix of blood clot into which cells could grow and sealing of the coronal access. The aim of this review is to explore our knowledge in this regard and future potential of saving or even regenerating the pulp as a routine dental procedure.

Abstract

Obstructive Sleep Apnea has become a very important topic and research targetbecause of its recent discoveries on the extensive correlations with many different types of systemic illnesses such as cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, strokes, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, etc. Moreover, sleep apnea has been identified as a major contributor for economic growth hindrance due to the notorious effects on productivity loss. While the gold standard of treating sleep apnea has been Continuous Positive Airway Pressure(CPAP) for decades, the poor patient treatment compliance rate has pushed sleep apnea treatment to a much lower priority from different healthcare providers. Recently, Oral Appliance Therapy has emerged and become a very crucial treatment option to treat sleep apnea. Patients who have failed other sleep apnea treatments have expressed superb satisfaction for the mandibular advancement device due to its comfort and convenience. The pronounced relationship between dentition, tongue, palate, oral-pharyngeal structures and the airway indicates that dentists should be playing a very specific role in sleep medicine. Dental Sleep Medicine is the newest branch of dentistry and it will be the standard of care in the near future. All dentists should be familiarized with the pathophysiology of sleep apnea, and the treatment modality with different types of sleep oral devices. The demand for dental professionals to assist in sleep medicine will increase exponentially, and dental sleep medicine will become a vital bridge to bring dentistry and medicine to become a unique alliance to treat one of the most deadly epidemics in modern medicine.

Abstract

Clinical evaluation and periapical radiographs have been methods traditionally validated by randomized clinical trials and systemic reviews for success of endodontic treatment. In addition, the presence or absence of a preoperative periapical lesion, the complete isolation of the operative field, the density and extension of the root canal treatment, and the quality of coronal seal have been identify as factors that influence the prognosis of the treatment This lecture will focus on treatment planning and the biologic approach to endodontics that has evolved as part of a multi-disciplinary care of patients. Philosophy of treatment is based on three concepts; Confidence Communication Competency Confidence defines how practitioners feel about themselves and the way patient’s feel about their dentists. Communication is always established between the patient and doctor. This relationship is based on respect, friendship and total loyalty. Competency is driven by biology and a complete understanding of the masticatory system in health and disease. In addition, the patient’s desire to follow through with all recommendation, maintenance and treatment. Endodontics is predictable 97% of the time. Developing the confidence to provide health and success for our patients during these times of change will be addressed. We will conclude with where we are today and what is the future in the specialty of endodontics. At conclusion, participants should be able to: 1. Establish the correct strategy to achieve a good prognosis well before the beginning of the treatment (non-surgical, surgical or single-tooth implant). 2. Explain the variations that exist in the literature regarding endodontic treatment outcome. 3. Make an educated decision whether to endodotically treat a tooth or extract and replace it with an implant

Abstract

This study aims to unravel the ambiguity as to whether human dental pulp stem cells isolated from subjects with a disease have the same multi-lineage capability for differentiation as human dental pulp stem cells from healthy subjects. We are evaluating the properties of stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous teeth (SHED) from patients with Osteopetrosis and whether osteopetrotic pulp may have robust osteogenic capacity, thus making them powerful candidates for bone regeneration. It is anticipated that results of this study would shed more light on the novel concept of dental pulp stem cells from (SHED) and their applications in regenerative dentistry and better understand the mechanism of bone regeneration. We isolated mesenchymal stem cells from dental pulp from healthy individual subjects, and Osteopetrosis patients and cells were characterized using different analysis platforms including flow cytometry and proteomics. We hypothesize that dental pulp stem cells derived from patients with Osteopetrosis can enhance bone development in the same way as dental pulp stem cells derived from healthy subject. Initial proliferation of isolated mesenchymal cells from dental pulp under different media is highly reproducible using Real-Time Cell Analyzer with dual plate (RTCA-DP). In addition some of the isolated cells have been positively tested for some of the known MSCs markers by flow cytometry including but not limited to CD90, CD105 and CD73. Furthermore, protein expression profiles by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) of the isolated dental pulp cells showed unique disease specific signatures and some of the proteins could be further developed as novel dental pulp stem cell markers. Details of the flow cytometry analysis and proteomics results of dental pulp mesenchymal stem cells would be presented.

Abstract

Objectives: The aims of this study were to create a new surface topography using simulated body fluids (SBF) and Gold Nanoparticles (GNPs) and then to assess the influence of UV Photofunctionalization (PhF) on the osteogenic capacity of these surfaces.Materials and Methods: Titanium plates were divided into six groups All were acid etched with 67% Sulfuric acid, 4 were immersed in SBFand 2 of these were treated with 13nm GNPs. Half of the TiO2 plates were photofunctionalized to be compared with the non-PhF ones. Rat’s bone marrow stem cells were seeded into the plates and then CCK8 assay, cell viability assay,immunoflourescence, and Electron scanning microscopy (ESM) were done after 24 hours. Gene expression analysis was done using real time quantitative PCR (qPCR) one week later to check for the mRNA expression of Collagen-1, Osteopontin and Osteocalcin. Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity was performed after 2 weeks of cell seeding.Results: Our new topography have shown remarkable osteogenic potentials. The new surface was the most biocompatible, and the 13nm GNPs did not show any cytotoxicity.There was a significant increase inbioactivity, enhanced gene expressions and ALP activity. Conclusions:GNPs enhances osteogenic differentiation of stem cells and Photofunctionalizing GNPs highly increases this furthermore. We have created a novel topography which might be one of the most efficient in enhancing the speed and extent of osseointegration up to date. This may have be of great potential for improving treatment outcomes for implant, maxillofacial as well as orthopedic patients.

Abstract

Today’s orthodontic practice is not driven by proffesional clinical decisions only, it is also highly influenced by the patient’s different demands. Nowadays internet has enabled a direct access to information, thus enabling the patient to become more easily self-informed and determined in his/her requests. In this lecture, presentation of possibilities of combining corticotomy and its RAP phenomenon, TADs and cortical plates, shall be based on real cases with “what if…?” moments, when the patients posed different kinds of demand, such as: What if we try to save this tooth? What if I don’t want to extract my premolars? What if we only help my GP to place implants and prosthetics by segmental orthodontics instead having braces on all teeth?What if we do it by shortening the treatment to 9 (or 3) months, because otherwise I cannot accept it? 5 cases will be presented in about 45 min long lecture.

Abstract

As strong as the pressure is to keep up with the massively increasing esthetic demands of the patients, it is still of utmost importance to consider the material’s longivity where a material should be selected, not only for its good esthetics and optical properties, but also for its favourable mechanical properties, adequate clinical function and biocompatibility. Choice of the material has to be dictated by the specific clinical situation where not every material can be used for a variety of applications without restrictions. Today’s monolithic lithium disilicate ceramic that has multiple translucencies and opacities and utilizes full press or milling fabrication techniques provide a monoblock approach to final restorations that are roughly five times stronger than traditional feldspathic porcelains. Despite the innovations in material’s technology and the introduction of zirconia re-inforced lithuim silicate ceramics, their use is limited, as a multiple-unit restorartions, for the premolar area of the oral cavity due to their strength limitations. On the other hand, and with the with the advances in computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM) technologies, Yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia (Y-TZP), with its unsurpassed mechanical properties and biocompatibility has had its clinical applications expanded in the field of fixed prosthodontics to include full arch restorations and frameworks for implant-supported restorations. However, its poor esthetic properties, low temperature degradation, chipping of the veneering porcelain and questionable bonding to the tooth substrate imposed some problems and limitations. Though advances in industrial facilities and the improvements in nano-technology, led to the evolution of nano-structured polycrystalline zirconia in an attempt to add esthetic value to the mechanical supremacy, yet it can’t be applied for all clinical situations. A decision has to be always made by the clinician; which material to choose! Our aim in this lecture is to solve the confusion based on thorough understanding of the materials’ pros and cons and different applications as dictated by different clinical situations.

Abstract

Regenerative endodontic procedures are biologically based procedures that aim to regenerate the pulp tissue to its healthy state and thereby revitalize the dental pulp, restoring the normal physiology of the pulp-dentin complex. The basis of regenerative endodontic proceduresis based primarily on the disinfection, influx, and repopulation of the root canal system mediated by MSCs. With the new developments in nanotechnology, nanoparticle substances may be used in the composition of intracanal medications and endodontic sealers, increasing antibacterial activity, due to their present higher active surface area.New development of nano-sized particles intra-canal medication, demonstrated the ability to penetrate the dentin tubules and other irregular narrow areas. Indeed, antibiotic-containing scaffolds have been proven to control/reduce infection by the controlled release of a wide variety of antibiotics. Ultimately, the ability of nano/microfibrous scaffolds to deliver intracanal, uniform, and greatly controlled amounts of antibiotics may have positive treatment implications by providing a bacteria-free environment conducive to tissue regeneration.This overview will focus on the different strategies used for regenerative procedures and the effect of recent advances in nanotechnology, so that the normal pulp homeostasis will be retained.

Abstract

Splinting is a common treatment approach in dental practice to obtain stability and eliminate mobility. It has also been shown that splinting can decrease pain and discomfort during biting and chewing. In addition, splinting of the mobile tooth is recommended before regenerative periodontal treatment to obtain maximum benefits from the treatment. It was my experience that SRP instrumentation was made easier by the splinting due to the prevention of tooth mobility. As another benefit, the patient was no longer complaining about chewing or biting after splinting. In this presentation, with the aid of pink composite enhancing the esthetic results of patients affected by periodontal disease will be discussed.
