Abstract:

Despite the increased effort to improve the quality of restorative materials for dental applications, on occasion, failures are still being experienced either in the form of debonding, delamination or fractures under clinical conditions. Renewal of restorations is often accompanied by the associated loss of tooth tissue/restorative material. Although there is little published literature on the subject, repair of a restoration is more cost beneficial than total replacement where appropriate. Experience indicates that adhesive technologies could be utilized either at baseline or during failure management thereby survival rate of dental restorations could be prolonged without the necessity of high-end solutions. In this lecture, the criteria for decision making with regard to repair versus replacement will be discussed and step-by-step procedures will be explained for clinical repair of various materials and restorations.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of eugenol-based and resin-based endodontic sealers on the push-out bond strengths of prefabricated fiber posts luted with different resin cements.METHOD AND MATERIALS: Ninety prefabricated fiber posts were luted into extracted singlerooted teeth with one of three resin cements (Variolink II, ParaCore, or Rely X Unicem). Each group was subdivided into three groups with 10 teeth each. The first two groups were obturated with gutta percha and one of two eugenol-based endodontic sealers (Endofil or TubliSeal) each. The third group was obturated with gutta percha and (AH26) resin-based root canal sealer. Push-out tests were performed in a universal testing machine by applying a load speed at 0.5 mm/min by using a 1-mm-diameter metallic plunger which induced a load in an apical to coronal direction. The maximum value for post dislodgement (in Newtons) was recorded. Data were collected and statistically analyzed using two-way ANOVA and Tukey multiple comparison tests (α = .05).RESULTS: rnThe highest mean bond strength values were recorded for the AH26 sealer group (non-eugenol sealer) luted with Rely X Unicem resin cement (mean ± SD = 326.1 ± 66.1 N), while the lowest mean bond strength values were observed with posts luted with Variolink II resin cement into canals obturated with gutta-percha and Endofil (eugenol-based) sealer (90.3 ± 25.2 N). There was no significant difference between the means of push-out strengths for the Endofil and TubliSeal groups (P = .745). CONCLUSION: Eugenol-based sealers (Endofil and TubliSeal) significantly reduced the push-out bond strength of prefabricated fiber posts luted with resin cement.

Abstract:

Effects of thermal cycles and immersion in different beverages on color, translucency and hardness of different composite resins: The aim of this study is to evaluate the color stability, translucency and hardness of eight different composite resins, after thermal cycling and immersion in beverages. Six light-cured dimethacrylate-based composite (Clearfil Majestry Esthetic, Clearfil Majestry Posterior, Grandio, Grandio Flow, Arabesk Top, Valux Plus), ormocer (Admira) and silorane-based composite (Filtek Silorane) were tested in this study. Fifteen specimens (8x2 mm) of each composite were prepared. All samples were subjected to thermal cycling [(5.0 ± 0.5)~(55.0 ± 1.0) °C, 1000 cycles]. After thermal cycling, fifteen specimens in each group were divided into three subgroups (n = 5): distilled water (control), coffee, and red wine at 37°C for 30 days. With a spectrophotometer, the △E and Translucency Parameter (TP) were calculated against white and black backgrounds. Color, translucency and hardness of all samples were remeasured baseline, after thermal cycles and after immersion in beverages. The data were analyzed using repeated measured analysis of variance and Bonferroni multiple-comparison test (P<0.05). Red wine and coffee caused perceptible discolorations in all composite resin materials (△E>3.3). The effect of thermal cycles on color and transluceny was no statistically significant (P>0.05). TP values generally decreased especially after immersion in red wine (P<0.05). Hardness values were varied among composite resins but generally decreased after thermal cycles and immersion especially in red wine. Thermal cycling and immersion in beverages caused to decrease in hardness values for composite materials. Because of negative effects on color and translucency, it should be noted especially red wine consumption.

Biography:

Dr Ali Nankali is a clinical Lecturer in Oral Adult Health in the Barts and the London Medical and Dental School. In 1998, he took a keen interest in restorative dentistry which led him to commence his extensive research on application of post and cores. Following his research, he proposed to the scientific board of the Orthopaedic and Implant department of the NMU a number of novel inventions including Nankali Post System, Nankali bur as well as new classifications for Post/Core and Masticatory force. Dr Nankali was awarded his PhD in 2004 by National Medical University (NMU) in Kiev, Ukraine where he registered as a specialist in Prosthodontics. Furthermore, his engineering background in addition to his prosthetics and Maxillofacial clinical experiences helped him in achieving ground-breaking outcomes on his researches related to distribution of masticatory force and mechanical strength of teeth's hard tissues that brought him to the attention of the scientific community. At his current position, Dr Nankali is involved with undergraduate, postgraduate students as well as regularly running CPD and other courses.

Abstract:

The purpose of this presentation is to evaluate the significance and influence of tissue preparations as well as bonding and cementation on the longevity of crown treatments as a fixed prosthesis for clinical practitioners. The reflection of teeth features on prepared hard tissue increases dramatically the stability factors such as the retention and resistance. Furthermore, the mathematical models illustrate the changes of the chemical bond’s strength according to the prepared surfaces. The amount of used cement for fixing an artificial crown and how long it was compressed are other important factors that lead to achieving a successful crown treatment. In this presentation for the first time, it is demonstrated that the correct usage (quantity, pressure and time) of cements in an appropriate prepared core dominates the determination of the effect of agents on the retention.

Abstract:

Introduction : Gone is the era of removable partial dentures for edentulous ridges, currently the focus is on implant supported superstructures for oral rehabilitation. Implants have shifted from being a complex and expensive option to simple and feasible choice. However implants are not entirely devoid of complications.Some percentage of implants may not sustain over prolonged periods of time due to several factors. Peri-implantitis is one such factor leading to late failure of implants . Clinical Significance : Periodontitis being a multifactorial disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss all over the globe.After loss of teeth either partially or completely, the question arises about whether the implants which replace the missing teeth also will face the same fate and have peri-implantitis.Thus it is clinically relevant to examine the relationship between periodontitis and peri-implantitis. Summary and Conclusion: Evidence in the form of studies is conflicting, making it difficult to arrive at a definitive conclusion.There are insufficient long term studies with proper controls.Some evidence points to a history of severe chronic generalized periodontitis and aggressive periodontitis having a role in future peri-implantitis. Contrarily few studies show a successful survival of implants in subjects who have lost teeth due to periodontitis previously provided they are on a regular maintenance regimen. Key words : Bone loss ; Denture ; Implants ; Periodontitis ; Peri-implantitis ;Tooth loss.

  • Dentistry: Tools and Techniques
Biography:

Dr Maria A. Landin is a toxicologist, specialized in toxicogenomics, working with Prof Harald Osmundsen at the institute for Oral Biology. During her PhD, she investigated and mapped the global gene expression in murine tooth buds using molecular biological methods. This lead to creation of a microarray database (68 microarrays) entailing 16 time points of murine tooth development from the embryonic day 11th up to 7 days post-partum (E11.5- P7). During her Dr’s degree she aquired knowledge and skills in molecular biological techniques such as microarrays, real-time RT-PCR, isolation of proteins or RNA / DNA from tissues or cells. She also masters various immunological techniques and have extensive experience in animal experiments and microdissection. She established In Situ hibridisering (Ribo-and oligoprober) at the institute and participated in several projects looking at the effects of brominated and / or perfluorinated flame retardants in wild type and knockout mice. She also colaborated with the biofilm groupe at the institute, where microarrays with up to 30K oligo were used to assess the toxicity of furanone in vivo.Currently Dr.Landin researches on the rolle microRNAs (miRNAs) in the regulation of the murine transcriptome using loss of function studies.

Abstract:

Tooth Development in murine models occurs in a short time-span providing a window of genetics events and is a good model for organ development. Understanding the genetic processes that govern tooth development by mapping the global murine mRNA transcriptome and their regulators miRNAs may provide new bio-therepeutic tools in dentistry. Previous research focus has been on identifying one or more target proteins that can be used as a diagnostic tool and to find the most successful treatment. The understanding of the genetic events during murine tooth development may provide bio-tools for dentists and influence positively the clinical outcome in persistent infectious cases like periodontitis or perio-implantitis. For many patients with persistent infectious conditions with loss of bone and eventually loss of teeth may benefit of new treatment approaches. Extrapolation of genetic studies may contribute to increase knowledge on the numerous biological events in regeneration and healing processes of oral soft and hard tissues may generate new treatment strategies and give predictable results in restoration treatment after oral infections resistant to clinical treatment.

Speaker
Biography:

In 2004 graduated from the Moscow State University of Medicine and Dentistry. Doctor prosthodontist, orthodontist dentist. In 2011 awarded the academic degree - PhD. Since 2010, he engaged in their own research. Author of 13 patents. The main area of research is devoted to functional diagnostics in dentistry and analysis of the parameters involved in the articulation of the lower jaw. He is the primary developer of the new optical axiograph Dentograf, which may be used for the articulation of research n / h, even during childhood. The main developer of the first electronic articulator, allowing full play any trajectory n / h using plaster models, on a pre-recorded trajectories. Author of new diagnostic algorithms for patients with TMJ dysfunction. In 2013. Director Prosystom. The company is engaged in the development and manufacture of equipment for functional diagnostics, as well as the development of software allowing patients to carry out a comprehensive analysis on the previously obtained axiography data, computed tomography and electromyography. In 2016. our company has developed a new sensor that allows you to record the presence of bruxism patients during sleep.

Abstract:

Using additional equipment allows you to get information about the patients’ problems to plan the subsequent functional treatment. One of the important components that need to consider in the prosthodontic treatment planning is the individual trajectory of lower jaw movement. To register lower jaw articulation we use a new optical axiograph Dentograf, allowing obtaining the necessary data for programming mechanical and virtual articulator. This device may use in patients with any pathology of occlusion. The use of mechanical articulator allows producing prosthodontic constructions according to the individual protrusion and laterotrusion movements. In our study, we tried to reproduce additional, previously not used movements using plaster models of jaws: chewing, mouth opening. As a result, we have significantly upgraded the classical structure of the mechanical articulator. Our researches and using of additional devices formed the basis for articulation concept FIRA, which consists in the study and analysis of individual trajectories of lower jaw movement and implementing the data in the subsequent treatment. To minimize errors in the planning of functional treatment we have tried to eliminate unnecessary digital recounts of joint trajectories for obtaining numerical values of angles for programming the mechanical articulator.

Abstract:

We all know that one of the main causes of death world wide is head and neck cancer. As the incidence of cancer patients are increasing, dentists have a higher chance of visiting such patients at their offices. Radiation to the head and neck region, especially in nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients, has serious adverse effects on oral and dental health. Despite advanced radiation methods, such as intensity modulated radiation therapy: IMRT, and the use of protective drugs, such as Amifostine, the burden of radition-related consequences in the patients with head and neck carcinomas is yet significant. There are some simple measures that, if be taken at the proper time, can reduce the negative effects of ionizing radiation on the oral hard and soft tissues, particularly salivary glands and teeth. The following steps, with known mechanisms, will be beneficial to the patients and will enhance their quality of life during and after radiation therapy period. 1- Elimination of all the sources of oral infections 2- Hydration 3- In-office fluoride therapy 4- Home use of Xylitol mouth wash 5- Frequent stimulation of salivary glands by mechanical and chemical methods These five simple and non-expensive steps not only soothe the severity of immediate radiation-induced consequences, such as mucositis, but also reduce the magnitude of post-radiation effcts, such as dry mouth and apple-core tooth decays.

Abstract:

Smart materials are those materials having properties which may be altered in a controlled fashion by stimuli, such as stress, temperature, moisture, pH, and electric or magnetic fields. Examples include piezoelectric materials, which produce a voltage when stress is applied or vice versa, shape memory alloys or shape memory polymers which are thermo responsive, and pH sensitive polymers which swell or shrink as a response to change in pH. Smart behavior occurs when a material can sense some stimulus from its environment and react to it in a useful, reliable, reproducible, and usually reversible manner. These properties have a beneficial application in various fields including dentistry. Shape memory alloys, zirconia, and smart seal are examples of materials exhibiting a smart behavior in dentistry. There is a strong trend in material science to develop and apply these intelligent materials. These materials would potentially allow new and ground breaking dental therapies with a significantly enhanced clinical outcome of treatments. The numerous applications they have been put to, no wonder tells us that these smart materials hold a real good promise for the future of dentistry. The aim of the presentation is to show how dentists and dentistry made use of these smart materials for benefits of their patients.

Abstract:

Recent advance in laser technology has revolutionized the dental practice. The individual laser type owing to its physical properties and tissue interactions has range of application in dental practice. Diode laser are semiconductor lasers used for multitude application in dental procedures. The objective o the presentation is to highlight the uses of diode lasers in dental procedures as pulpotomy medicament and canal disinfectants, in frenectomies and laser applied fluoride therapy (LAFT). LAFT is a combination of laser irradiation combined with fluoride application. This combination improves the resistance of enamel surface to acids in the process of caries by creating the microspaces in the enamel surface and serves as the reservoirs of fluorides. This was tested by evaluating the loosely bound fluoride and the SEM evaluation of the enamel surfaces exposed to LAFT. Diode lasers used as canal disinfectants demonstrated better antibacterial properties. In frenectomies, diode lasers demonstrated better patient satisfaction and healing as compared to conventional surgical procedures. Diode laser as a plpotomy medicament demonstrated better pulpal response by maintaining the integrity of odontoblastic layer, reduced inflammation and necrosis when compared to formocresol. In conclusion, diode laser has proven to have a multitude of application in preventive and restorative procedures and in diagnosis of caries.

Abstract:

The orthodontic patient’s number one concern has always been “how long will I have to wear the braces for?” Recent developments in the field of orthodontics have made it possible to increase the speed and efficiency of orthodontic tooth movement such that there is a dramatic decrease in treatment time. Various pharmaceutical, surgical, mechanical/physical simulation methods have been utilized in an attempt to enhance the periodontium’s response to orthodontic forces, and subsequently accelerate tooth movement. This scientific poster reviews the need for shortening orthodontic treatment time, the different modalities available in order to do so, as well as their limitations and future scope for further improvement.
