ABSTRACT

Implants are wonderful treatment option for auricular defects as it provides a retentive auricular prosthesis. Auricular defects can be rehabilitated by autogenous and prosthodontic methods. Implants provide retention of auricular prosthesis by bar and clip method and magnets. Implant used in craniofacial region differs from the one which is used in the oral cavity. The implants are shorter with flange on the top, which is a unique feature for implants used in craniofacial region. The major challenge in placing the implant is the proximity of various anatomical structures. The implants should be placed 20 mm distance to the center of the external auditory meatus in 8 and 11 o’clock positions for right side of the face and the 1 and 4 o’clock position for left side. Two implants with distance of 15 mm will be sufficient to satisfy the biomechanics. Proper planning and use of implants with retentive aids like magnet, bar, and clip will provide a satisfactory prosthesis.

Keywords: Auricular defects, Craniofacial implants, Ear prosthesis, Implant-supported auricular prosthesis.

ABSTRACT

Age determination by means of assessment of the dentition is an application unique to forensic odontology. This process is especially relevant in those cases in which the rest of the skeletal remains are marred, as the tooth remains intact under adverse circumstances while the rest of the skeleton is obliterated. While the process remains complex, multiple methods have been devised to assess the dental age of an individual.

Keywords: Dental pulp, Incremental lines, Radiographs.

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

Restoration of occlusion in patients with mutilated dentition is a challenging situation as every case is unique in itself. There is a great apprehension involved in reconstructing worn-out dentition due to widely divergent opinions regarding the choice of an appropriate occlusal scheme. A critical assessment and subsequent scientific validation of available literature on occlusal philosophies in full-mouth rehabilitation require an understanding of their evolution in the formative years and the subsequent development of effective models for clinical practice. This study overviews the various occlusal concepts/philosophies in fullmouth rehabilitation, which will help the clinician to select an appropriate occlusal scheme for an individual case.

Keywords: Centric occlusion, Centric relation, Functionally generated path, Occlusal vertical dimension, Pankey-Mann- Schuyler concept, Temporomandibular joint disorder.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: To prepare removable dentures, border molding using an impression compound has been employed for a long time to obtain a denture border morphology harmonized with perioral muscle movement. However, border molding using impression compound is performed following practitioner’s empirical rule. The objective of this study is to clarify the optimum softening conditions of impression compound for border molding, for which we measured the pressure assumed to be loaded on impression compound during border molding.

Materials and methods: The pressure assumed to be loaded on an impression compound during border molding was measured using a tongue pressure-measuring device. Based on the measured pressure, appropriate softening conditions were investigated (softening temperature and water immersion time) for three types of impression compound: Red (Impression compound Red, Kerr, USA), green (Peri Compound, GC, Japan), and pink (Iso Compound, GC, Japan).

Results: The measured pressure was significantly different between those in the oral vestibule in the lower anterior tooth region during tugging the mouth corner, and in the gingivobuccal fold of the lower first molar during large mouth opening. Regarding the impression compound softening condition, red was deformed by all measured muscle pressures after immersion in 60°C water for 30 seconds and 65°C water for 20, 25, and 30 seconds. Green was deformed by all measured muscle pressures after immersion in 60°C water for 30 seconds, and 65°C water for 25 and 30 seconds. In contrast, pink was deformed by all measured muscle pressures after immersion in 55°C water for 25 and 30 seconds.

Conclusion: It was clarified that for border molding, muscle pressures of all regions during the functional movements can be registered using red and green softened by immersion in 60°C water for 30 seconds and pink softened by immersion for 20 seconds.

Keywords: Border molding, Functional movement, Impression compound, Tongue pressure measuring device.

ABSTRACT

Amputation of a finger will have considerable functional and psychological impact on an individual. Although prosthetic rehabilitation incorporating implants is considered an ideal treatment option, the patient may not give consent due to apprehension toward surgical procedures. The ideal prosthesis should replace the missing part of the finger so precisely that it would not draw the attention of the observer. Fabrication of such a prosthesis will require great technical and artistic expertise. This paper presents a case of prosthetic rehabilitation of an amputated finger using a silicone finger prosthesis.

Keywords: Amputation, Finger prosthesis, Prosthetic finger, Silicone.

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.
