ABSTRACT

Direct intraoral fabrication of cast post and core restorations for endodontically treated teeth can be challenging and time consuming. In addition, accurate intraoral fabrication of resin patterns with intracervicular margins is not always possible as a result of restricted access and difficult isolation.
This article presents a direct-indirect method that uses different diameters of prefabricated posts as fiber post and polyvinyl siloxane material as a mold for fabrication of multiple post patterns.

Keywords: Cast post, Direct-indirect pattern, Fiber post, Intraradicular restoration, Restoration of endodontically treated teeth.

ABSTRACT

Restoring a complex occlusal morphology of the posterior teeth is tremendously difficult when direct composite resin restorative materials are used because carving of the solid polymerized mass is accomplished mechanically using rotary instruments. The preoperative occlusal morphology of the tooth provides for the preparation of an ideal index of the esthetic and functional anatomy in cases where the carious lesion is confined within a shell of undermined yet intact enamel, and is registered using a transparent hot melt adhesive (HMA) material. The registration is then used as an index to reproduce the occlusal morphology in the final incremental restorative layer during the composite resin restoration, which also allows for the photopolymerization of the restoration through the translucent index.

Keywords: Clinical restorative dentistry, Composite resin, Dental restorations, Occlusion, Restorative dentistry, Stamping.

ABSTRACT

Piezosurgery is a new and innovative method that uses piezoelectric ultrasonic vibrations to perform precise and safe osteotomies. It was first invented by Tomaso Vercelotti to overcome the limitations of traditional instruments in oral bone surgery. Its use was first reported in the field of preprosthetic surgery alveolar crest expansion and sinus grafting. It provides substantial improvement dental/implant surgery, benefiting the surgeon by ease of use and the patient by minimizing surgical trauma and promoting rapid healing. Manual is used to remove small amounts of bone in areas with relatively less dense mineralization. The manual instruments are difficult to control in cortical bone, particularly where precise osteotomies are essential. They are mostly applied for gross cutting of large bone segments. Motor Driven instruments are often used when bone is very dense. Motor driven instruments transform electric or pneumatic energy into mechanical cutting action using the sharpened edge of burs or saw blades. These instruments generate a significant amount of heat in the cutting zone that must be minimized by water irrigation overheating of adjacent tissue may alter or delay the healing response. The reduced rotational speed decreases not only frictional heat but also cutting efficiency. Motorized cutting tools also decrease tactile sensitivity, slower rotational speed necessitates increased manual pressure which increases the macro-vibration of the cutting tool and further diminishes sensitivity. This article discusses about the wide range of application of piezoelectric technique.

Keywords: Bone, Osseous surgery, Piezoelectric device, Piezosurgery.

ABSTRACT

Immediate complete dentures have a significant role when patient’s all teeth should be extracted. The dentures are fabricated before all the remaining teeth were extracted, and immediately delivered to the patient after the extraction procedure. This article presents a practical fabrication method for complete immediate denture with the use of patient’s existing fixed partial denture (FPD). Advantages and disadvantages of this treatment method were emphasized.

Keywords: Complete denture, Immediate denture, Prosthodontics.

ABSTRACT

Background: Autologous plasma rich in platelets is derived blood product whose uses in dentistry dates back to the 1990s and it has been gaining popularity ever since.

Aim: A systematic review of the available literature to determine the efficacy, safety and success of platelet concentrates in physiological systems as well as describing its vigilant use.

Study design and methods: A Medline search with keywords ‘platelet rich plasma dental’ further filtered using Boolean operators (And , Or, Not) and combination of specific keywords as follows: ‘platelet rich fibrin’, ‘platelet rich plasma regenerative’, ‘platelet rich plasma periodontal’, ‘platelet rich plasma extraction’ with a custom range of 10 years was performed, which yielded 88 results out of which 32 were selected based on the inclusion criteria.

Results: Significantly, successful outcomes have been witnessed in the field of osteoregeneration though it has been evidenced that adequate platelet rich plasma (PRP) additives are essential to bear a therapeutic potential. Favoring blood cell adhesion on the root surface optimizing periodontal healing, PRP has also shown positive effect on gingival repair; though controversial facts have also been reported. In the scope of implant dentistry, PRP has also reported greater implant-bone contact when used in both gel or liquid form. Emerging as a possible pulp capping agent along with properties of decreased chances root growth, PRP has successfully completed apexogenesis in cases of pulpotomy.
Research has shown that although clinical results from the comparison of PRP alone vs PRP and resorbable membrane or various graft materials has shown a varied results, additional research in the field is needed.

Conclusion: Platelet rich plasma has shown promising results in the field of regenerative dentistry, with high success rate in implantology, periodontology and oral surgery. Because of conflicting success rates reported in literature further research is warrented.

Clinical implication: Platelet rich fibrin has displayed various features of rapid clinical healing, excellent bone density, less surgical time, less resorption during healing and decreased postoperative pain, as compared to guided bone regeneration procedures. Platelet rich plasma has also shown a myriad of applications ranging from hard tissue regeneration to soft tissue management, stretching across to the field of pediatric dentistry and endodontics.

ABSTRACT

Treatment of asymptomatic impacted maxillary canines in adults is inevitable when primary canine becomes lost through extraction or exfoliation or when the impacted tooth becomes symptomatic. Treatment alternatives include an orthodontic procedure to bring the unerupted tooth to the dental arch or prosthetic replacement of the missing tooth. This is an alternative treatment that involves simultaneous placement of implants into extraction sockets of the teeth for replacement of maxillary canine. This treatment modality avoids the need for conventional preparation of teeth as part of prosthetic reconstruction or prolonged orthodontic treatment aimed at bringing the impacted canine to the dental arch.

Keywords: Demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft, Immediate placement of implant, Impacted canine, Implantation with bone augmentation.

ABSTRACT

An ocular prosthesis which gives attention to the accurate duplication of natural color, contour, size and ocular orientation will provide realism and symmetry for patients who need it. This article describes a simplified technique of converting a stock eye shell into a well-fitting custom ocular prosthesis that requires minimal clinical procedures and simplified laboratory procedures. The color matching of the sclera of the prosthesis was performed using light-cured resin-based stains that are simple to use and give a more predictable and lifelike appearance when compared to the conventional acrylic ‘paint on’ technique.

Keywords: Custom ocular prosthesis, Resin stains, Scleral characterization, Maxillofacial prosthesis.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: To determine the variations in average distances between various facial landmarks used to determine the vertical dimension of rest and occlusion among dentulous and edentulous subjects. Besides determining the reliability of these facial measurements against commonly used Chin-Nose distance, this study would also compare the difference between cephalometric landmarks (anterior nasal Spine-Menton) with the Chin-Nose distance (Niswonger’s method).

Materials and methods: To standardize the measurement and minimize errors associated with observer and subject movement, a novel instrument was designed in the form of an apparatus and was named as subject and device stabilizing apparatus (SDSA). One hundred and twenty subjects, in the age group of 30 to 60 years, were selected and divided into two equal groups which were further subdivided into subgroups. Measurements were recorded with the help of a digital vernier that was attached to the apparatus. The various facial measurements studied were Pupil-Stomion, Glabella-Subnasion, Pupil-Pupil and Angle-Angle both at rest and in occlusion. These measurements were then compared with Chin-Nose and anterior nasal Spine-Menton distance. Differences between the dentulous and edentulous subjects at rest and at occlusion were noted and statistically analyzed using unpaired ‘t’ test and Karl Pearson correlation coefficient.

Results: Among the six measurements Chin-Nose, Glabella- Subnasion, Pupil-Stomion and anterior nasal Spine-Menton were closely associated between dentulous and edentulous subjects both at rest and at occlusion. Among all facial and cephalometric measurement the facial parameter of Pupil- Stomion illustrates the least deviation in edentulous (1.318) and dentulous (1.381) subjects at rest, whereas anterior nasal Spine-Menton displays least deviation in edentulous (2.751) and dentulous (1.224) subjects at occlusion.

Conclusion: The average facial measurements in dentulous subjects were more than measurements in edentulous subjects and among various facial measurements, Pupil-Stomion and anterior nasal Spine-Menton distance can be used clinically as a guide to verify vertical dimension of occlusion.

Keywords: Occlusion, Facial parameters, Jaw relations, Occlusal plane.

ABSTRACT

Background and objectives: This in vitro study compared and determined the temperature increase in the pulp chamber of permanent maxillary first premolar teeth placed in contact with different resins used for the fabrication of provisional restorations.

Materials and methods: Polymethyl methacrylate (DPI), polyethyl methacrylate (SNAP), polyvinylethyl methacrylate (TRIM), bis-acrylic composite (Protemp II) were compared with respect to their exothermic properties during polymerization. Eighty freshly extracted maxillary first premolars were prepared for complete coverage restoration were placed in an acrylic resin block. A thermal probe connected to a digital thermometer was placed into the pulp chamber. Specimens were submerged in a water bath to simulate intraoral conditions. The provisional materials were manipulated according to manufacturer’s instructions. The resin mix was placed into template and was then positioned on the prepared tooth. The temperature was recorded during the polymerization at 30-second intervals until it was evident that the peak temperature had been reached.
After complete polymerization, the template was removed from the tooth and the provisional crown was retrieved. Data was analyzed with one-way ANOVA and Bonferroni multiple comparisons test.

Results: Mean temperature increase for the provisional crown fabrication ranged from 38.78°C, 37.79°C, 37.71°C and 35.88°C for polymethyl methacrylate, polyethyl methacrylate, polyvinylethyl methacrylate and bis-acrylic composite respectively.
Polymethyl methacrylate, polyethyl methacrylate and bisacrylic composite were highly significant.

Interpretation and conclusion: All the materials used were in the safer limit. Hence, by comparing all the four material, Bis-acrylic composite showed least temperature rise in pulp chamber.

Keywords: Provisional restoration, Pulp chamber, Polymerization, Acrylic resins, Specimens.
