Abstract

Aim

Denture cleansers are used not only to clean dentures but also for disinfection of dentures. Among household denture cleansers, bleach (which contains sodium hypochlorite) and vinegar (which contains acetic acid) have been found to be powerful disinfecting agents. The objectives of this in vitro study were to evaluate and compare the color stability and tensile bond strength of Trevalon and Lucitone 199 heat-cured resins after immersing in household denture cleansers like 1% household bleach and 50% vinegar.

Methodology

A total of 48 Trevalon and Lucitone 199 heat- cure resin samples respectively were fabricated. The samples were divided into three groups of 16 samples each. They were immersed in 1% bleach, 50% vinegar and water (control) respectively. The samples were alternatively immersed in cleanser and water for 8 hours for 20 days simulating 30 days of use. At the end of 20 days, color stability and tensile strength were assessed with the help of spectro-guide and Instron universal testing machine respectively.

Results

Sodium hypochlorite and vinegar affected the color stability of Lucitone 199 heat-cure acrylic resin. The color of Trevalon heat-cure resin remained unaltered after immersion in both the cleansers. The change in tensile strength of both the resins was not significant after immersion in both the cleansers as compared with water which was used as control group.

Conclusion

This study concludes that for disinfection and cleansing of denture, sodium hypochlorite can be considered as long as the acrylic used is cross linked.

Cone Beam Computed Tomography: A New Boon and a Ray of Hope to the Endodontist-A Series of Cases

Abstract

Aim

This article aims to provide comprehensive information related to the cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) as a diagnostic aid and its potential applications in dentistry.

Background

A study was done on 10 different patients with different findings, such as Radix entomolaris, calcifications, vertical root fracture, internal resorption, cystic lesion, perforation, radicular cyst, preparation for endo surgery. These all findings could not be diagnosed by two-dimensional (2D) imaging which were diagnosed with the help of CBCT.

Review results

Cone beam computed tomography is a revolutionary and innovative procedure that has changed the paradigms in the management of various endodontic conditions. Cone beam computed tomography offers speed and versatility to the practitioner and patient alike. Within few minutes of acquiring the scan, the dentist may fully explore the patient's three-dimensional (3D) image. The image can then be rotated, color-contrasted, and slices can be isolated and further analyzed. With its accurate and high-quality 3D representations, this technology offers tremendous improvements in diagnostic capabilities, eliminating surprises and minimizing the need for exploratory surgery.

Conclusion

Cone beam computed tomography is an invaluable endodontic tool for use before, during, and after treatment CBCT scanning drives diagnostic accuracy, which positively impacts clinical decisions, increases speed of treatment, and improves productivity and patient outcomes. In short, it has provided the greatest advancement in digital imaging over the past decade.

Clinical significance

When used for preoperative assessment, CBCT imaging provides highly detailed information on the entire tooth structure, including the location and number of canals, pulp chamber size and degree of calcification, curvature of root morphology, tooth and root fractures, inflammatory lesions and defects.

Abstract

Scope of work

The purpose of this work is the analysis and comparison of the various methods available for the realization of fixed restorations on natural teeth in the anterior sector with the presentation of some case report series.

Materials and methods

The methods used in relation to the clinical case, are the metal-ceramic, the galvan-ceramic, all- ceramic and porcelain veneers.

Results

It highlights indications and limitations of each of the methods proposed, emphasizing the prominent role of esthetics in the rehabilitation sector of the front.

Conclusion

The materials and techniques available, with proper clinical evaluation and to a timely therapeutic planning, are the basis of the rehabilitative ideal choice for each individual case, and they also depend on the achievement of clinical success.

Abstract

Clinical findings of AI include

Enamel deficiencies, pulpal calcification, root malformations, failed tooth eruption, impaction of permanent teeth, progressive root and crown resorption, congenitally missing teeth, tooth sensitivity. Due to reduced enamel thickness, the teeth are undersized, with lack of contact between adjacent teeth, poor oral hygiene and mouth breathing with associated gingivitis and gingival hyperplasia may also be seen.
