ABSTRACT

Aim: This study aims to find out the effects of Probiotics, delivered with a lozenge for its effect on clinical and microbiological parameters in subjects with chronic periodontitis after scaling and root planing (SRP).

Materials and methods: A total of 40 generalized mild to moderate chronic periodontitis subjects were finally enrolled in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical study. Selected subjects after SRP were randomly divided into two groups: Group I (test group) with 20 subjects receiving probiotic tablet once daily and group II (control group) receiving placebo tablets once daily. Clinical parameters and bacterial count for Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, Porphyromonas gingivalis, Prevotella intermedia, Fusobacterium nucleatum were evaluated at baseline, 2, and 4 months after the medication.

Results: On comparative evaluation between the two groups, results indicated that group I (probiotic group) exhibited statistically significant reduction in both clinical and microbiological levels than group II (control group) over the entire span of the study.

Conclusion: Our results proved that daily oral supplementation of probiotics could be a useful adjunct to SRP in chronic periodontitis patients.

Keywords: Hyperbiotics, Periodontitis, Probiotics.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Calculus can accommodate teeth and prosthetic restorations when the patient’s oral hygiene is poor. Hardened calculus cannot be removed by patients, it needs professional cleaning using ultrasonic scaler or hand instrument. Solutions dissolving and preventing accumulation of dental calculus may help to keep dentures clean. The aim of this investigation was to examine the effect of Periogen on dental calculus in vitro.

Materials and methods: Calculus was collected via scaling from patients during a routine dental checkup. The samples were stored in carbamide peroxide solution (5%) for 24 hours, then rinsed and stored in distilled water. First, the Ca2+ content of the calculus was determined by photometric method after treating with cc. hydrochloric acid solution for 1 hour. The calculus samples were put in Periogen solution, prepared according to manufacturer’s instruction for 16 hours, then crushed and put in Periogen solution with the same concentrate for 4.5 hours. The Ca2+ dissolved from calculus was measured using same photometric method.

Results: Calculus samples contained 26 mg/100 mg Ca2+, which is similar to dentin (27-28 mg/100 mg) and to enamel (36 mg/100 mg). The Ca2+ dissolved from calculus after treating with cc. hydrochloric acid for 1 hour was considered 100%. Ca2+ dissolution was 1.5% after 16 hours (0.09%/h) and 5.45% (1.21%/h) for the next 4.5 hours after pulverizing the sample. This showed Periogen Ca2+ dissolution was 385 &3x03BC;g/100 mg after 16 hours direct contact with the material.

Conclusion: The experiment showed that pulverizing the previously hard calculus was done easily after soaking it in Periogen. The ability of Periogen to soften the calculus needs to be further investigated.

Keywords: Calculus, Oral disease, Periodontal, Periogen.

ABSTRACT

This case report describes the orthodontic and orthopedic treatment of an 18-year-old male patient who presented with prognathic maxilla, deep bite, low mandibular plane angle, and proclined incisors. Modified three-piece base arch was used for the intrusion and retraction of maxillary incisor. En masse retraction was achieved in 6 months. Reduced time for retraction was attributed to a single stage of retraction unlike Burstone three-piece intrusion base arch where canines are individually retracted followed by retraction of incisors. A modified utility arch was used in lower arch followed by a continuous archwire technique. The case was finished using bite settling elastics on a continuous archwire. The step between canine and premolar was corrected in the finishing phase of treatment. The final treatment outcomes were satisfactory and true intrusion was achieved with proper selection of biomechanics.

Keywords: Biomechanics, Intrusion, Segmental mechanics, Three-piece base arch.

ABSTRACT

Aims: This case report aims to describe a conservative interdisciplinary approach to restore generalized tooth wear complicated with malalignment of teeth.

Introduction: Tooth wear is the surface loss of dental hard tissue, i.e., usually multifactorial in origin, excluding other than caries, trauma, or developmental disorder. Severe tooth wear impact the appearance, comfort, function, or longevity of the tooth. Prosthodontic management of patients with tooth wear has been well documented, although prosthodontic treatment is designed to correct minor malocclusion, patients with moderate-to-severe malocclusion accompanied by generalized tooth wear may require preprosthetic orthodontic intervention.

Case report: This case report describes a 47-year-old male patient with generalized tooth wear complicated with lack of interocclusal space and malalignment of teeth. Preventive measures were carried out to address the etiological factors of tooth wear. After orthodontic treatment, definitive restoration was placed in reorganized occlusion at an increased vertical dimension, which restored esthetic and function.

Conclusion: In this clinical report, generalized tooth wear with insufficient space for restoration, complicated by malalignment of teeth, was managed by way of an interdisciplinary approach which allowed a conservative full-mouth rehabilitation. After orthodontic treatment, a reorganized restorative approach was undertaken at an increased vertical dimension, providing an esthetic and functional solution. An occlusal night guard was provided to protect the dental restorations.

Clinical significance: Interdisciplinary approach allows a conservative management for patient with tooth wear complicated by malalignment of teeth.

Keywords: Case reports, Interdisciplinary, Prosthodontic management, Tooth wear.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Dental caries and periodontal disease are the two globally leading oral infections. There is considerable variation in the prevalence of these diseases. Also, these may lead to various periapical pathoses like periapical abscess, cysts, and so on. These may be attributed to differences in age, gender, sample size, geographical distribution, and protocol followed for diagnosis.

Objectives: To estimate the prevalence of dental caries, gingivitis/periodontitis, and periapical pathoses in patients of all ages in a dental institute in central Gujarat.

Materials and methods: After obtaining approval from the Institutional Ethics Committee, a hospital-based cross-sectional study was carried out in a dental institute of central Gujarat. A total of 4,642 patients were screened, out of which 2,849 subjects were included in the present study. Intraoral examination was done under all aseptic conditions by using a diagnostic set of instruments by trained professionals and the status of the pathology recorded according to the standard procedure. Data were stored in an Excel spreadsheet for analysis.

Results: It was observed that dental caries/pulp pathoses were more prevalent in the younger age group with mean age 23.1 years. All the other pathoses were observed among the middle age group (above 35 years). Overall prevalence of dental caries/pulp pathoses, gingivitis/periodontitis, and periapical pathoses was observed in 54.8% of males as compared to 45.2% females.

Conclusion: The current study collected significant data for the prevalence of three different odontogenic oral lesions in the central Gujarat geographical location at a tertiary level. There is male preponderance in the prevalence of these diseases in general. There is a need to generate awareness about oral health and the prevention of dental caries and gingivitis/ periodontitis and to institute measures for the provision of dental care services at the primary level.

Keywords: Periapical pathoses, Periodontitis, Pulp pathoses.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To assess the prevalence of gingival recession and to investigate possible associations among gingival recession and periodontal and epidemiological variables in a sample of Greek adults in a general dental practice.

Materials and methods: A sample of 640 Greek adults was examined clinically and interviewed regarding several periodontal and epidemiological variables. Collected data included demographic background (age, gender, level of education), oral hygiene habits, and smoking status. Clinical examination included the recording of dental plaque and supragingival calculus presence, gingival status, and gingival recession. In addition, the association between gingival recession and the following variables was assessed: gender, smoking status, calculus presence, plaque control methods, plaque index, gingival index, and level of education. Multiple linear regression analysis was carried out to model the association of gingival recession with the mentioned potential risk factors.

Results: The overall prevalence of gingival recession was 62.7%. The performance of multiple linear regression analysis indicated that smoking (p = 0.001), plaque index (p = 0.021), gingival index (p < 0.0001), plaque control methods (p < 0.001), and level of education (p < 0.001) were the most important associated factors of gingival recession.

Conclusion: The present study indicates that an association exists between gingival recession and presence of gingival inflammation, inadequate oral hygiene habits, and smoking.

Keywords: Adults, Gingival recession, Prevalence, Risk factors.

ABSTRACT

Aims: Our study focused on the fabrication of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and evaluated its influences on cell behaviors, including proliferation and migration.

Materials and methods: Platelet-rich fibrin was prepared from human peripheral blood according to Choukroun’s method without using nonanticoagulant and foreign factors for platelet activation. Platelet-rich fibrin architecture was studied by hematoxylin and eosin staining. The investigation of PRF effects on human gingival fibroblasts (hGFs) was conducted via PRF liquid extract. Cell proliferation was determined via the number of cells after a period of time incubated in PRF liquid extract. Influence of PRF liquid extract on the migration of hGFs was conducted via scratch wound healing assay.

Results: Histological staining reviewed the natural fibrin fiber matrix of PRF. Platelet-rich fibrin liquid extract promoted hGF proliferation after 7 days of cultivation. Human gingival fibroblast proliferation in PRF liquid extract was more superior than those cultured in complete medium. Platelet-rich fibrin was also found to be able to promote the migration of hGFs for up to 48 hours.

Conclusion: These results indicated that PRF is suitable to be used as autologous natural biomaterial in supporting wound healing and in further application in periodontitis treatments.

ABSTRACT

Restoration of grossly mutilated primary maxillary incisors affected by early childhood caries has been a challenging task for the pediatric dentist due to the little amount of tooth structure available for bonding and behavioral problems of the children. A variety of treatment options ranging from extraction followed by prosthesis to the usage of intracanal pins and fiber posts have been reported in the past. The present case report depicts one such a case wherein biological restorations were used as post and core to restore the mutilated primary maxillary incisors in a 4-year-old child treated under general anesthesia.

Keywords: Biological restoration, Early childhood caries (ECC), General anesthesia, Post and core.

ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of four different electronic apex locators in the presence of various irrigation solutions or dry canal condition. Nineteen mandibular incisor teeth were selected. The real working lengths (RWL) of teeth were measured with #15 K-file. The electronic working lengths (EWLs) were measured with Root ZX mini, Raypex 6, iPex II, and Propex II under the condition of dry canal and in the presence of sodium hypochlorite and QMix. The difference between EWL and RWL was calculated. Root ZX mini was more accurate than Propex II under dry condition. No difference was found between the electronic apex locators in the presence of sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl). In the presence of QMix, Propex II and Root ZX mini demonstrated more accurate measurements than iPex II. Root ZX mini was found more accurate under dry condition than in the presence of QMix. Raypex 6 demonstrated more accuracy in the presence of QMix when compared with NaOCl. iPex II showed similar measurements with all tested solutions. Propex II was more accurate in the presence of QMix. All devices can be considered reliable when used with QMix irrigation solution and with any irrigant.

Keywords: Apex locator, NaOCl, QMix, Working length determination.
