Abstract

According to Branemark, a two stage surgery was believed mandatory in order to contribute towards a stress free healing period for the implants to osseointegrate. Also, the original principles statedꟷ after tooth extraction it’s mandatory to wait for 6-12 months in order to allow complete healing of alveolar bone. However, during the healing period, a considerable amount of alveolar bone can be lost as a result of bone resorption. Certainly, with series of advances in the implant dentistry in past decades has led to alterations in the original protocol. Immediate implant placement in a fresh extraction socket has been signified to accomplish a desired result i.e. prevention of bone resorption. Immediate implant placement in fresh extraction socket prevent undue resorption tend to occur post extraction & maintenance of gingival form & interdental papilla.

Abstract

The present study was performed to assess the dentoskeletal and soft tissue treatment effects of Herbst appliance in Class II adult patients.Pre and post teratment,1 year post Herbst lateral cephalograms of 26 patients were taken. Dentoskeletal and soft tissue changes were identified using Repeated measures ANOVA .All Herbst subjects were treated successfully to occlusal relationships with normal overjet and overbite. Skeletal and soft tissue facial profile convexity was reduced significantly post Herbst. There was slightly increased overjet 1 year post Hebst and correction was slightly reversed. There was significant reduction in facial convexity post Herbst and it was maintained post 1 year. There was statistically reduction in facial convexity in Low angle patients while in High angle patients the effects were less significant and less maintained post 1 year.Thus, Herbst treatment can be considered an alternative to orthognathic surgery in borderline adult skeletal Class II malocclusions. Further Studies with large data sample and improved study designs are needed to elucidate recommendations

Abstract

Treatment of necrotic immature permanent teeth with or without apical pathosis, poses several clinical challenges. There is a risk of inducing root wall fracture or extending gutta-percha during endodontic treatment. Recommended treating techniques such as CaOH(2) or bioceramic apical plug leave the roots short and brittle . Iwaya et-al. (2001) reported the first case of continue maturation of infected tooth. Since than a lot of research, case studies and reports were published indicating that regenerative endodontics is predictable procedure. The lecture will review the update evolvement of the procedure. Participants will learn the pros and cons of this procedure.

Abstract

Ankylotic root resorption is aserious complication following traumatic dental injuries.The etiology of root resorption includesacute injury to the cementum and periodontal ligament, and subsequent biological processes that propagate the harm. The aim of the present lecture is to present a structured treatment protocol for teeth that have experienced trauma and are at risk of developing ankylotic root resorption, followed by a decoronation protocol for situations in which ankylotic root resorption developed. It provides a structured road map from the primary dental trauma, through the initial development of ankylosis detected radiographically, until the clinical manifestation that results in significant infra-occlusion. The current protocol integrates best available evidence from the literature and from published guidelines. There is no accepted protocol or uniform guidelines for treatment in these cases and many clinicians prefer avoiding replantation ofan avulsed tooth that seems to haveguarded long-term prognosis, or performing decoronation when infraocclusion developed. As a result, young patients lose the benefits associated with replantation and decoronation procedures.The option ofre-implantation of the avulsed teeth should be consideredirrespective of the negative long-term prognosis. Following ankylosis development, the goal of submerging the tooth root (decoronation) is to maintain the horizontal dimension of the alveolar ridge and also to gain vertical dimension, allowing implant placement in the future.

Abstract

Microbial contamination is the primary cause of pulpal and periapical infections. Therefore, in the recent days there has been a shift in root canal treatment to increasingly focus on the ways of eliminating microbes to keep the root canal system free of microorganisms and to prevent recurrence of infection. Improper microbial elimination allows reinfection of root canal system and leads to failure of root canal treatment. The presentation highlights the advances of prevention of microbial elimination through antimicrobial strategies and apical and coronal seal.

Abstract

Introduction: Tooth extraction is usually followed by partial resorption of the residual alveolar ridge. Different techniques such as ridge preservation procedure have been proposed to maintain the ridge dimension. However, applying these methods to extraction sockets could not completely preserve the coronal part of facial bone walls, which were comprised almost entirely of bundle bone. Case report: A 45-year-old woman with non-contributory medical history presented to our clinic with non-restorable tooth #23, which doesn’t has any periapical or periodontal pathology. After clinical and radiographical assessment, computed tomography (CBCT), indicated insufficient width of buccal bone plate therefore socket shield technique was planned for simultaneous immediate implant placement (Straumann 4.1x12 RN) with immediate provisionalization crown. Initial follow up after two weeks, then after 2 months final restoration by screw-retained crown inserted. After 6 and 12 months of loading follow up by using CBTC, for evaluation bone remodeling and clinical evaluation of soft tissue changes around implants. Results: Two weeks follow up revealed the healing was uneventful, and after 6 and 12 months the clinical and (CBCT) revealed, that retaining root fragment adjacent to the buccal crestal bone and placing an implant engaged to the palatal socket wall immediately are able to maintain the contour of the ridge. And the implant can achieve osseointegration without any inflammation at peri-implant tissue and also soft tissue contour preserved. Conclusion: After one year follow up, SST can prevent soft and hard tissue changes can be happens during healing of alveolar socket after tooth extraction. However the using SST as routine clinical practice stile need to higher level of evidence.

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 and 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.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION When the psychological approach fails, the issue of the non-cooperative patients can be solved only with the anesthetic techniques rangingfrom conscious sedation to deep sedation and - finally- to general anesthesia. In all patientswith a high level of intellectual disability, general anesthesiashould be administered for any type of dental treatment. These patients may have craniofacial anomalies (micro and macrocephaly, weak chin, brachycephaly, short or big neck), oral cavity disorders (macroglossia, micrognathism, high-arched palate, palatoschisis, prognathism) and upper airway disorders (edematous structures, false vocal cords, abnormal tissues), as well as dysmorphism of the spinal column and rib cage that may make both ventilation and intubation difficult. OBJECTIVES OF THE RESEARCHThis research aims to determine an anesthetic technique which is both easy to administer and safe, so that this procedure can be proposed and performed for the establishment of equipped and authorized surgeries for the dental treatment in non-cooperative patients, as well as to make the therapeutic approach more rapid, without any long waiting lists currently used in complex hospital structures, and, at the same time, to reduce costs without the aid of hospitalization oroperating rooms. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two anesthetic procedures were examinedin different hospital facilities, where the same dental team operates. The first procedure that we will describe has beenperformedsince 1985 in 7850 patients with different disabilities and difficult airways, in hospital facilities andmedical clinicsoperating within the Italian National Health Service (Hospital of Cetraro, Rome’s Israelitic Hospital, Medical Clinic of Avezzano and Medical Clinic of Sora). This technique requires the following procedure: inhalation induction ofanesthesia which avoids the venipuncture stress in patients with needle phobia and allows, in any case, a procedure that would otherwise be extremely difficult in uncooperative patients. The volatile anesthetics currently used are Sevorane and Desflurane. Sevorane, which wefavor in this procedure due to its lack of airway irritability, has both pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties,resulting in a widespread use in modern anesthesiology. Due to its low solubility, it allows a more rapid inductionof anesthesia, a significant maneuverability during the maintenance phase and a rapid awakening from anesthesia after the surgery. Several clinical studies have demonstrated its excellent safety and efficiency profiles in different chirurgical disciplines and in different ages of patients. Desflurane is characterized by a low solubility in blood and by a minimum biotransformation in the organism.The low solubility in blood of Desflurane explains itsrapid elimination and the rapid awakening. Due to therapid recovery of the psycho-motor functions after a long surgery and the resulting diminished cardiovascular depression, it is excellent for geriatric anesthesia. The efficiency of these modern drugs can be measured by the shortness of the induction phase that may continue – without interruption – toward a follow-upwhich allows the nasotracheal intubation, thus ensuringa complete control of the airway and anexcellent practicability for dentistry in general. The intubation is performedduring spontaneous breathing and is monitored by the movement of the oxygen reservoir (in addition to the capnometry), by using the positioning of the tracheal probe in the hypopharynx, through the nose, before the aditus laryingis, and by thus realizing an almost closed respiratory system. This allows to perform the maneuver in complete serenity since spontaneous breathing and the inhalation anesthetics ensure an adequate depth of narcosis and the possibility of an intubation without the laryngoscopy. Sevorane and Desflurane not only do not leave any trace in the organism, but they also have an important cardio protective function which is widely demonstrated in cardiac surgery practice. In this way, a monopharmacologic general anesthesia is administered(without the use of curare) fully complying with the respiratory function which is, from the patient’s point of view, synonymous with safety: at the beginning, patients “breathe their sleep” and finally they “breathe their awakening”. All thisalso means a rapid release in total safety and the possibility to repeat the treatment after short time. The second technique has been adopted since April 2009 in a medical clinic operating within the Italian National Health Service in S.M. Capua Vetere, where 2458 patients with a different level of disabilityhave been examined, including patients with difficult airways. The procedure requires a nasotracheal intubation through flexible fibrobronchoscope in analgosedated-patients and with intermittent pure oxygen insufflation through the fibrobronchoscope’s channel followed by a TIVA (total intravenous anesthesia) General Anesthesia. The nasotracheal intubation has been performed according to the following three-phase procedure: a) check of the correct functioning of the fibrobronchoscope; b) patient monitoring: ECG, SpO2; c) operating procedure; - sedation of the patient with 50-100 mcg fentanyl and 30-60 mg/Kg/h Propofol; In the procedure, the aspiration channel offibrobronchoscope was used to apply a pure O2 flow with four objectives: • generating a transbronchoscopic CPAP to oxygenate the patient during the procedure; • keeping the soft structures away from the flexible terminal of the fiber to get a broaderview and for a minor incidence of visual interferences (the lens does not get dirty and does not fog up); • a correct management of the O2 flow can be used to “open the cords”; RESULTS No substantial differences were observed between the two procedures. Both were considered safe and did not obstruct the dentist’s activity either with objective obstacles in the oral cavity during the surgery and without any complications neither during the anesthesia phase nor during the post-surgery phase. CONCLUSIONS Between the two techniques, the first one adopts a less invasive procedure, without the stress of the venipuncture. The inhalation technique ensures: a soft and rapid induction, the possibility to modulate the depth of the narcosis and long and repeatabletime without no increased risk. Furthermore, this technique may be adopted for the implementation of specialized surgeries for non-cooperative patients care. Different implant treatments and prosthetic rehabilitation cases are demonstrated.

Abstract

Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are common complex disorders negatively affecting life quality. Epidemiologic surveys report that 20% to 25% of the population has TMD symptoms. The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) has limited blood supply and hence, limited regeneration capacity. Efforts are now directed towards a tissue-engineering approach for treatment of TMD. The use of hydrogels for controlled drug release and tissue regeneration has been investigated. For cartilage regeneration, aqueous solutions of thermosensitive polymers, forming hydrogel scaffolds at body temperature are injected in a minimally invasive manner intra-articularly. Thus the hydrogel systems act as stem cell seeding scaffolds for TMJ tissue regeneration. Controlled drug release is another promising application of thermosensitive hydrogels. Intra-articular injections of hyaluronic acid (HA) and corticosteroids have been commonly used in treating Temporomandibular disorders. However, rapid clearance from the joints is a critical concern that is negotiated by frequent dosing, which is not without complications. We investigated the suitability of four different hydrogelation systems based on alginate, carboxymethyl cellulose, nanocellulose and chitosan for intra-articular controlled release of drugs in the rabbit TMJ. A series of hydrogels were prepared and several parameters were investigated to select the formulation with optimum characteristics. Chitosan β-glycerophosphate was selected for further drug (HA) loading. The mean concentration of HA in the experimental joints after 7 days was significantly higher than the control (P<0.001). In conclusion, the chitosan-based thermosensitive hydrogel can be considered a promising controlled drug release system to the TMJ that would potentially overcome many of the current shortcomings of intra-articular formulations.

Abstract

Ameloblastoma is a benign, locally-invasive neoplasm that consists of proliferating odontogenic epithelium. Its incidence, combined with its clinical behavior, makes ameloblastoma the most significant odontogenic neoplasm. Unicysticameloblastoma (UA) refers to those cystic lesions that show clinical, radiographic, or gross features of a mandibular cyst, but on histologic examination show a typical ameloblastomatous epithelium lining part of the cyst cavity, with or without luminal and/or mural tumor growth. A 17-years-old patient was referred to Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery department of Mashhad Dental School. Pain and swelling of left mandibular angle were her chief complaint. In radiographic evaluation there was a large unilacular lesion related to impacted third molar. Incisional biopsy revealed unicysticameloblastoma. As she was so young and was studying for the university entrance exam, she asked us a conservative treatment, so we started marsupialization. After about one year the lesion was regressed significantly in size, so in the second surgery we performed segmental resection but mandibular inferior border remained intact. After one year –that no sign of recurrence was noticed- 2 submucosal tissue expanders were placed in the site of resection for soft tissue improvement. Several weeks later the defect size was reconstructed by ramus cortical graft.3months later CBCT showed favorable bone for implantation of first and second molars. Two ITI dental implants were inserted and after 3month prosthetic treatments were also applied. The patient-who is a medical student now- has normal occlusion and satisfactory facial esthetic.

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

urgical procedures are an integral part of every dental practice. Dentists perform procedures such as extractions, periodontal surgery and implant placement that often require suturing skills. However, some clinicians may experience challenges such as premature suture loosing, flap opening and tearing, bent needles, and inability to stabilize flaps. This course/ workshop will review the principles of suturing and the criteria to select the best suture materials. It aims at providing the participants with techniques to suture delicate tissues for biopsy, periodontal surgery, implant surgery, extractions, etc. Improper suturing can lead to complications and even treatment failures. The course is a combination of lecture and hands-on program, participants are able to perform incisions and suturing techniques on frozen sheep heads to simulate natural soft tissue manipulations and closure techniques. It is recommended for beginners who are looking to learn common suturing

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

Dental implant treatment is well documented as a successful treatment modality for the restoration of fully and partially edentulous patients. Today, more and more dental patients are being treated with implants by a greater number of dentists. The original surgical protocol included a surgical flap approach for implant placement. The patients’ desire for a shorter treatment period, less traumatic implant placement, and for an improved esthetic result encouraged the introduction of a less invasive implant placement procedure. Animal studies and case reports provide proof-of-principle data on the feasibility of immediate implant placement in proximity to a retained root fragment for the strategic preservation of the natural tooth apparatus. This novel concept relies on the preservation of PDL, buccal bone and soft tissue esthetics via selective preservation of the buccal portion of the root and PDL which can lead to predictable and sustainable clinical stability of immediately placed and loaded implants. A step by step technique will be displayed. At Last a full description and examples of the Root membrane kit will be displayed.

Abstract

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

Abstract

Introduction: This study evaluated possible stem cells origin during regenerative endodontic procedure, whether from surviving dental pulp stem cells within disinfected root canals walls or from stem cells of apical tissues or they act synergistically. Methods: Immature necrotic permanent single rooted-teeth (n = 30) of patients (n = 24) 7-18 years old were divided into two groups according to presence or absence of apical radiolucency: group A with apical radiolucency and group B with healthy periodontium. After informed consent, two-sessions regenerative endodontic protocol was implemented. First session root canals were disinfected using 1.5% NaOCl irrigate and Bimix medicament for 3 weeks. Second session root canals were irrigated using 17% EDTA followed by a final saline rinse. Saline samples were collected from disinfected root canals using sterile paper points. Periodontium was apically stimulated using hand files until bleeding reached the cementoenamel junction for the assumed stem cells delivery. Blood samples were collected from root canals using sterile paper points. The expression of specific mesenchymal stem cell gene markers; CD105 and CD73 was assessed using 2-step qRT-PCR relative to infected root canals. Mann-Whitney U test was used for comparison. Statistical significance was set at "p < 0.05". Results: In group A, the fold increase for CD105 and CD73 in saline samples were 19.6% and 7.6%, respectively, while the fold increase in blodd samples were 26.6% and 17.8% with statistically significant difference, P-value < 0.001.

Abstract

Statement of the Problem: Sleep is the single most important physiologic state that affects the most number of systems overall and lack of sleep has serious health impacts, both in the short and long term. Nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the current treatment of choice, but its cumbersome nature makes tolerance and compliance less than optimal. This gives rise to the need for other alternatives that are equally effective, but more tolerable. There is growing interest in the use of oral appliances to treat snoring and OSA. The rationale is that advancement of the mandible and tongue and increased vertical dimension of occlusion and 3-dimensional jaw position has a positive impact on achieving airway patency. Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: Oral Appliances have potential advantages over CPAP in that they are unobtrusive, make no noise, do not need a power source, are less costly and require less daily and periodic maintenance. Recent evidence from randomized controlled trials indicates that oral appliance therapy efficacy is up to 82% and perhaps even higher. Findings: This is associated with a significant improvement in symptoms, including snoring, daytime sleepiness, increased overall general health and psychological well-being. This evidence is strong for short term, and for long-term treatment of OSA with oral appliances. Whilst direct comparisons with CPAP indicate the superiority of CPAP overall, similar outcomes between the two treatments appear to be achieved in a substantial subgroup of patients. Patient acceptance has, in general, been in favor of oral appliances. Conclusions and Significance: What were once key issues with oral appliance therapy included the inability to reliably predict treatment outcome and uncertainty about selection of the appropriate 'dosage' of mandibular advancement required to control OSA in the individual patient have been addressed by the APP-NEA’s MAD-FIT protocol using big data quantitative analytics and predictive models.

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

Never underestimate the power of a Microorganism. Microorganisms, just like God cannot be seen through naked eye but we can feel their impact on us in various ways. Though only 3% of the total microbial populations are harmful to the humans but without knowing, we are getting their help from the historic days eg. Souring of milk (dahi), pickles, jams, dosa and idly making, wine production etc. In the average adult there are 100 trillion human cells and 1500 trillion microbes. Thus, At best you are little more than 10% of you. Hence we are all just petri dishes with shoes. We as orthodontists often intervene with the most important microbial habitat that is the oral cavity. Various studies have been done in relation to orthodontics and oral flora which have been unable to resolve the dilemma of the type of relation among the two. The relation formed and thereby the success of an orthodontic therapy depends upon both an orthodontist as well as the patient. All procedures beginning from appliance fabrication, insertion, oral hygiene maintenance and patient motivation are equally important. A balance and harmony has to be maintained from initiation throughout progression till the end of the therapy. If any of the above becomes wrong or imbalanced, orthodontic therapy will fail. Remember “Microbes are always at Work” Mind it…

Abstract

Research shows that more than 90 percent of all systemic diseases have oral manifestations, including swollen gums, mouth ulcers, dry mouth and excessive gum problems. Oral health reflects overall health and today’s Dentist is perfectly positioned to be an important adjunct in the health of their patients by diagnosing conditions in the mouth which can be indicators of something far more serious, specifically: Diabetes, Leukemia, Oral cancer, Pancreatic cancer, Heart disease, Kidney disease, Acid reflux and Osteoporosis. This lecture delves into the future of the relationship between Dentists, Physicians and their mutual patients. It is intended to empower and educate Dentists to work with their patients who have oral indicators of systemic disease; in diagnosing, treatment, prevention and healing. Lastly, we cover superfoods and nutraceuticals which have the ability to repair and regulate cellular energy production, ozone and oxygen therapy which reduce pain significantly, modulate the immune system, increase energy, alleviate sleep dysfunction and in some cases patients are able to decrease use of antibiotics.

Abstract

Effective wound closure is critical for minimizing wound complications and preventing wound dehiscence. The various wound closure techniques include staples, traditional nylon and skin sutures, subcuticular sutures and skin adhesives. Currently topical skin adhesives are frequently being used. Most of the adhesives used are cyanoacrylates short and long chain (butyl and isobutyl cyanoacrylates) derivatives. Cyanoacrylates (CAC) are tissue adhesives exhibiting the objectives of achieving coaptation of surgical wound borders, and thus eliciting healing. This material is bacteriostatic and biodegradable, and exhibits suitable tensile strength. Cyanoacrylates glue results in cutaneous closure in less than 5 minutes. It should not be used for deep wound closure or in any patient sensitive to cyanoacrylates. Wound closure using tissue adhesives require careful attention to be given to closure of subcutaneous layer to ensure optimal approximation and tension on the edges of the wound.Cyanoacrylates glue polymerise rapidly within seconds following contact with proteinaceous surfaces to form strong and flexible bonds. This chemical property makes them extensively used in different surgical application. Prior to application of cyanoacrylates, the tissue surface should be cleaned and dried as much as possible. Protection of the surrounding tissues from accidental contact with cyanoacrylates can be done by covering them by gauze, or chloramphenicol 1% ointment. SURGICAL TECHNIQUE Under nasoendotracheal intubation, skin preparation was done with povidine iodine. Skin incision for each procedure was placed in the standard location. Then reduction of fracture and plating was done. In 80% of the patients subcutaneous sutures were placed. Skin closure was done with N-butyl 2 cyanoacrylate glue. Pressure dressing was placed in the usual manner for 24hrs postoperatively. RESULTS In this study, REEDA Scale was used to assess healing. Redness, edema, Ecchymosis was seen in all 10 patients, which subsided by 2nd week post operatively. None of the patients had discharge from surgical site on 1st post operative day but was noted in 2 patients 1st week post operatively. There was evidence of wound gaping in 1 patient on 1st post operative day and 2 patients at end of 1st week post operatively. Stony Brook Scar evaluation was used to evaluate post operative cosmesis in this study. No significant cosmetic impairment was found in all patients at the end of the study. Patients were highly satisfied with the excellent cosmetic results. In this study, no adverse inflammatory reactions were encountered and it is relevant to a study conducted by Ahmed Habib et al. The Surgical glue has the characteristic of being rapidly transferred from a liquid to a solid state that occurs at room temperature without the need of catalysts, solvents or application of pressure. CONCLUSION The study reflects qualitative assessment of cyanoacrylates which is simple to use & with proper application resulted in uniform and everted closure of the wound. It is cost efficient as compared to other wound closure materials. The properties of cyanoacrylate glue were appreciated clinically as it showed excellent results with respect to the closure time, post operative healing and patient comfort. The quantitative data as reiterated from results make us conclude that cyanoacrylate glue performed excellently and showed similar cosmetic results when scarring evaluation was done. It is noteworthy that within the limitations of this study, which includes, less sample size and short duration for evaluation, this material showed excellent results and future studies in larger sample size can overcome the above stated limitations.
