An Evaluation of Shear Bond Strength of Composite Resin to Enamel under Various Saliva Contaminated Conditions: An in vitro Study

Abstract

Purpose

To evaluate the effect of saliva contamination on the shear bond strength of composite resin to enamel by using different parameters.

Materials and methods

The highest mean shear bond strength of composite resin was obtained on the uncontami- nated enamel surface, and the lowest mean shear bond strength was obtained on the saliva contaminated moist enamel surface.

Results

The mean shear bond strength of composite resin to saliva contaminated, washed and air-dried enamel surface was less than the mean shear bond strength to the dry enamel surface.

Conclusion

This suggests that only rewashing of the saliva contaminated enamel surface is not enough in achieving bond strength equal to that of the uncontaminated enamel surface.

Correlation between Combined Width of Maxillary Anterior Teeth, Interpupillary Distance and Intercommissural Width in a Group of Indian People

Abstract

Purpose

The objective was to evaluate the correlation between the width of distal surface of canine (CWC), interpupillary distance (DMP) and intercommissural width (DCM) in a group of central Indian people.

Materials and methods

A total of 540 central Indian subjects (277 males and 263 females) aged 19 to 30 years were selected. DMP and DCM were measured on subject's face using digital vernier caliper [Mitutoyo (UK) Ltd.] with precision of 0.01 mm. Irreversible hydrocolloid impression of the upper arch was taken, and a cast was poured with dental stone. The CWC measurements were done on these casts with the help of a dental floss fixed between the distoproximal contacts of upper canines using a dental tape. Spearman's correlation test was used to determine the correlation between the three variables studied.

Results

The results revealed that the correlation between CWC-DMP was 0.015 and CWC-DCM was 0.031. The correlation showed negative values when compared between the sexes. Also, the proportions were calculated: DMP/CWC and DCM/CWC for the whole sample and for the sexes found no statistical significance (p > 0.05).

Conclusion

The results of this study suggest that the examined interpupillary distance and intercommissural width cannot be considered reliable guidelines in the selection of artificial upper frontal teeth. However, they may be used as a useful additional factor combined with other methods for objective teeth selection in complete denture therapy.

Prevalence of Dentulism, Partial Edentulism and Complete Edentulism in Rural and Urban Population of Malwa Region of India: A Population-based Study

Abstract

Background

The objective of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of dentulism, partial edentulism and complete edentulism in rural and urban population of Malwa region of India, who visited at department of prosthodontics for the first time.

Materials and methods

An institution-based, cross-sectional study using the random sampling method was used to select the study sample of 1000 males and females. Data were collected using questionnaires and oral examination. Data were statistically analyzed using Chi-square test.

Results

Nearly, 38.5 and 63.1% of the rural and urban females were dentulous in the age of below 53 and 43 years. 61.4 and 36% of rural and urban males were dentulous in the age of below 53 and 43 years. Nearly, 41.9 and 48.2% of the rural and urban females were partial edentulous in the age of above 53 and 43 years. Fifty-eight and 51.7% of rural and urban males were dentulous in the age of above 53 and 43 years. Nearly, 22.4 and 55.8% of the rural and urban females were completing edentulous in the age of above 43 years in both population. 77.5 and 44.1% of rural and urban males were completing edentulous in the age of above 33 and 53 years.

Limitation

The study was conducted in an institution-based set-up. Hence, any interpretation of the results of this study must bear this limitation in mind.

Conclusion

It is essential to identify feasible strategies to provide primary dental health education and treatment to all rural and urban elderly in the future. We suggest community dental health services to be included in general health of the elderly rather than a special health need of the community.

A Comprehensive Prosthodontic Management of Subtotal Maxillectomy

[Year:2014] [Month:October-December] [Volume:4] [Number:4] [Pages:7] [Pages No:120 - 126]

Abstract

Patient

A 21-year-old female patient was diagnosed with intraosseous mucoepidermoid carcinoma on the left side of maxilla, which was planned for subtotal maxillectomy involving the left maxillary sinus.

Discussion

Prosthodontic rehabilitation of patients with maxillectomy is a challenge as it involves restoring speech, deglutition, mastication and respiration. This clinical report describes a comprehensive prosthodontic management of a young girl treated for a subtotal maxillectomy due to intraosseous mucoepidermoid carcinoma. The prosthodontic manage- ment that was carried out right from the surgical obturator to a definitive prosthesis with a two-piece closed hollow bulb, magnet-retained obturator shows the ease and simplicity in the management of a case with subtotal maxillectomy.

Conclusion

Subtotal maxillectomy defects represent a complex challenge for the maxillofacial prosthodontist. The comprehensive technique described in this clinical report can be employed in any similar case.
