    Abstract

    What happens when you apply an antimicrobial to an oral biofilm? You may expect the bacteria to die and perhaps the biofilm to degrade. But do they? Certain oral pathogens actually can communicate and build resistance to the antimicrobial treatment. Other oral pathogens may go dormant to resist the effects of the antimicrobial. This session examines biofilm evolution, bacterial quorum sensing, and bacterial dormancy. What we are learning about the evolution of polymicrobial communities within oral biofilms may shape the future of sanitizing and debriding office procedures as well as home oral care. The address concludes with an examination of the implications for the design of antimicrobials for dental office and home oral care use.

    Abstract

    Esthetically pleasing smile involves harmony of lips, gingiva and teeth in esthetic zone. Color and shape of the gingival tissue greatly influence the esthetic of smile. Gingival recession, asymmetrical gingival contour, gingival clefts, dehiscence and fenestration etc in esthetic zone poses the greatest challenge to a clinician. Majority of periodontal plastic surgery are undertaken to treat or prevent gingival deformities. Microsurgical techniques have been performed routinely for the management of periodontal problems with promising results. Soft tissue manipulation in endodontically involved teeth is challenging as it poses varying degrees of hard & soft tissue destruction. Minimally invasive modified periodontal techniques have demonstrated positive results for the management of various Endo-Perio problems, improving patients smile restoring the functions.

    Abstract

    In the early 1980’s the dentin hybridization model was proposed. It was described as a bioengineered tissue integration of resin into the living dentin of the tooth. Over the following years there have been generations of dentin hybridization adhesives created to attempt to overcome the shortcomings of the previous generations or to attempt to make the process easier for clinical application. However, it has been determined that the average life span of a typical resin bonded composite restorations is 5.7 years at a cost of approximately five billion dollars annually in the United States alone. Various agents have been proposed and subsequently used in an attempt to create more long lasting hybrid bonds. However, it has been stated that the use of these agents applied either separately or mixed with the primer/adhesive agents appear to only retard rather then prevent bond degradation. It is obvious that a different pathway needs to be traveled and it is proposed that the use of bioactive/biomineralization integrating materials could be the direction to success. What will the audience take away from your presentation? • Discuss the challenges being encountered with dental bonding systems • Discuss the current definition of bioactivity and biomineralization and how these definitions may need to evolve. • Learn if restorative crystal interface formation is equivalent to biomineralization. • Learn if true remineralize of demineralized dentin structure can be accomplished.

    Abstract

    Beauty of dental morphology is determining factor for proper function, biodynamic and aesthetics. It is also an effective tool to achieve satisfactory photographic records, presentations of clinical cases and patient acceptance of dental treatments proposed by mock up or wax up. This is a theory and practice workshop course, aimed at specialists, general practice dentists and dentistry students, interested in being able to obtain a correct functional dental morphology and aesthetics in their daily clinical practice, in any restorative material applied, using drawing as a means of learning to perceive proportions, shapes and anatomic details. Also, techniques and instruments, necessary to obtain a correct morphology in composite, will be shown and taught while drawing and reconstructing the anatomy of each tooth. In this course, participants will have the opportunity to learn in depth, tooth morphology of anterior and posterior teeth by lectura and by observing audiovisual material including detailed drawings and photographic record of natural permanent teeth, to later understand how to achieve such morphology through live 2D drawing process of each tooth. The students follow this in parallel, while being constantly monitored and mentored. Building up techniques to get the right morphology with composite will also be delivered while drawing every tooth. At the end of the course, the participant will have the ability to recognize, perceive and reconstruct all the biomorphologic structures of the anterior and posterior teeth correctly, through drawings based on the photographic record of real teeth, which has been shown to greatly improve perception of 3D forms.

    Abstract

    Implant dentistry has seen rapid and remarkable progress in recent years. Several questions have been raised concerning materials as well as designs of both implants and implant abutments to achieve maximum clinical success rates. An understanding of their properties will help the clinician in selecting the ideal prosthesis for each clinical case while promoting final esthetic outcomes. With the evolving technology and knowledge, an update of the current trends is necessary.The use of implants to replace missing teeth in the esthetic zone is challenging. The restorations are subjected to direct visual comparison with the adjacent natural teeth. Perfect three dimensional implant positioning and well-designed superstructures are therefore essential to mimic the appearance of a natural tooth and to achieve an optimal esthetic outcome.The development of computer aided design computer aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology has focused on precise and consistent manufacturing of zirconia ceramics with high strength and toughness. CAD/ CAM technology relies on exact dimensional predictions to compensate for sintering shrinkage, and is an economical and highly reproducible method for manufacturing complex and individual geometrics from a green or presintered ceramic material. Zirconia has become one of the dominant types of ceramic used for a variety of CAD/CAM restoration classes, including framework/hand veneer, framework/pressed veneer , framework milled /veneer, full contour fixed prosthodontics , implant abutments, and large implant supported substructures. Although zirconia is currently the strongest dental ceramic material available, fabrication variations and finishing procedures can affect the longevity of this material as well as the veneer porcelain. Having a good working relationship with a dental laboratory is strongly recommended. Of the all-ceramic restorations produced in 2010, zirconia based units represented approximately 50% of that total. The introduction of computer aided design/ computer aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) has facilitated the use of superior dental ceramic, to enhance the fabrication of consistent and predictable restorations in terms of strength, marginal fit and esthetics. CAD/CAM technology in combination with zirconia ceramic has increasingly gained popularity in implant dentistry.Marginal accuracy, retention and color matching of esthetic implant supported crown are critical determinant in the over all success of implant therapy and yet it remains challenge. Especially with the innovative revolution of CAD/CAM systems designs and materials which has improved and refined endlessly. So on understanding of their properties is a demand for helping the clinician in selecting the ideal prosthesis for each clinical case while promoting final esthetic outcomes. In this lecture we will spot light in a comparative way between different CAD/CAM techniques [Full contour CAD/CAM technique, Anatomical core CAD/CAM technique, over press CAD/CAM technique] ..we will show their marginal accuracy, color matching and retention when used as a cemented versus screw retained esthetic implant supported crowns.Digital implant dentistry isn’t the future …Far from it… digital implant dentistry is the “here and now” for dental implant practitioners.From digital treatment planning and delivery to patient communication, new technologies are changing the way dentists practice implant dentistry. The digital advancements in dentistry are growing at an incredible speed.

    Abstract

    Deminerlized autotooth bone material support excellent bone regeneration with minimal or no foreign body reaction, prevents transmission of disease or genetic disease as it comprises of type 1 collagen and proteins similar to alveolar bone thus has high osteoinductive properties.Any osseous defect like extraction socket , ridge augmentation (horizontal or vertical) , maxillary sinus augmentation can treated by osteoinductive autotooth bone material with minimal invasive surgery. Objective: Make implant Surgery Simple,Easy, Minimal Invasive and friendly. Discussion: Whenever Implant surgery is planned either it will be a fresh extraction socket or had a history of extraction with either horizontal or vertical defect or both.Therefore Surgeon has to planned Guided bone regeneration with simultaneously implant placement. Nowadays different bone material choices are available or extensive surgery required for augmentation results high post operative discomfort , more chances of complications or rejection and longer healing time. Autotooth bone makes surgeon and patients life easier beacuse of minimal invasive surgery with no or less post operative discomfort and no risk of rejection. There are several chairside system available that helps to convert extracted tooth/teeth into bone powder or block bone.

  • C-Reactive Protein in Peripheral Blood of Patients with Chronic and Aggressive Periodontitis, Gingivitis and Gingival Recessions.

    Institute of Dental Medicine, 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University
    Czech Republic
    Abstract

    Aims: CRP is a plasma protein that reflects a measure of the acute phase response to inflammation and is one of the markers of choice in monitoring this response. The aim of this study was to compare and evaluate the systemic levels of CRP in the peripheral blood samples of patients with chronic and aggressive periodontitis, gingivitis, and gingival recessions and compare them with periodontal clinical parameters. Methods: All patients (N = 158) were examined prior to the initiation of periodontal treatment (PBI, PD, CAL - full mouth periodontal recording). Patients were divided into four groups. Group A consisted of 26 patients with aggressive periodontitis (positive BOP and PD>5 mm in all quadrants), Group B consisted of 111 patients with chronic periodontitis positive BOP and PD>3 mm in >1 tooth in all quadrants), Group C consisted of 13 patients with gingivitis (positive BOP in all quadrants, PD<2.5 mm), and Group D consisted of 8 patients with gingival recessions (no BOP, CAL>4 mm). CRP levels and periodontal parameters were compared. Statistics: t-test, Pearson correlation, significance threshold p<0.05. Results: CRP levels – mean/SD (mg/l) – group A 2.8/2.4, group R 2.2/2.0, group C 2.1/1.7 and group D 1.3/0.7. Correlations CRP – periodontal parameters: group A – CRP-BOP p=0.6132, CRP-BOP p=0.0076, group B – CRP-PD p=0.1686, CRP-BOP p=0.0001, group C – CRP-BOP p=0.0241, CRP-CAL p=0.0434, group D – CRP-CAL p=0.8346. Conclusions: Results of study indicate that CRP levels increase subsequently with the severity of the inflammatory component of periodontal disease and that the bleeding on probing index showed much better positive correlation with the CRP levels compared to the pocket depth index in both periodontitis patients groups, especially in patients with aggressive periodontitis.

    Abstract

    Minimally invasive endodontics (MIE) is the bid for “a logical regard for the original tooth tissue.” Endodontists are aware that an artifact is of less biological value than the original healthy tissue. The main aims are tissue preservation, preventing of disease,and intercepting its progress, removing and replacing with as little tissue loss as possible. With regards to endodontic procedures, it can range from diagnosis to making a decision not to treat, to a minimally but purposefully fashioned access openings based on anatomical challenges, to minimal removal of dentin during access opening, enlarging and shaping of the root canal to retain as much sound dentin as possible, to performing a crown lengthening procedure to establish sound tooth margins for core/crown restorations as opposed to tooth extraction and implant or bridge placement..MIE could also include the provision of a pulpotomy as a definitive procedure, but only if the status of the dental pulp can be determined much better than we do today. Knowledge of anatomical structures and their variations is essential so that excessive enlargement proposed with some techniques and certain instruments can be avoided.Development of new techniques to minimize tooth structure removal. Skillful conservative access openings, judicious orifice location, careful canal penetration,the use of minimally tapered rotary instruments, to develop better methods of canal cleaning and disinfection, techniques that favor ease of deliver of obturation materials thoroughly within the root canal with minimal application forces, use of strong, well-placed, bonded core materials and a post prior to crown placement, along with tooth retention, are prime goals within MIE.

He is the youngest certified dentist in africa and middle east from pinhole academy in America. He is a member in American academy of implant dentistry. He is the founder and CEO of Smile Care Center in Cairo. He is also the youngest Egyptian international speaker in laser technology.

    Abstract

    Laser systems and their application in dentistry and especially oral surgery are rapidly improving today. The diode laser was introduced in dentistry and oral surgery in the mid-90s . The diode laser devices have specifications such as relatively small size, portable and lower cost that attract the dental practitioners and oral surgeons for use in various surgical indications in comparison to other laser equipment. Diode laser with wavelengths ranging from 810 to 980 nm in a continuous or pulsed mode was used as a possible modality for soft tissue surgery in the oral cavity. Based on the photothermal effect of the diode laser, the lesions of the oral mucosa are removed with an excision technique, or by ablation/vaporization procedures. Applications of lasers in dentistry is soft tissue surgery and ablation of lesions and The excision of exophytic lesions is one of this utilization. Provided correct selection and application of diode lasers in soft tissue oral surgery, for example frenectomy, epulis fissuratum, fibroma, facial pigmentation and vascular lesions. The advantages of laser application are relatively bloodless surgery, minimal swelling, scarring and coagulation, no need for suturing, reduction in surgical time and less or no post surgical pain. Also, the laser instantly disinfects the surgical wound as well as allowing a noncontact type of operative procedure and therefore no mechanical trauma to the tissue.

    Abstract

    Autologous membrane and Autologous Fibrin glue/ i-PRF are the excellent source of Growth factors derived from blood. It supports the graft material and helps in regeneration along with its anti inflammatory and pain killing effect during repair (TNF-a). Growths Factors are derived from platelets. Platelets play role in transmission of the signals and release of the GFs (the most important are the PDGF-BB, TGF13-1and IGF-1). Any osseous/ soft tissue defects like extraction socket, ridge augmentation (Horizontal or vertical), and Maxillary sinus augmentation can be done using Growth Factors from Autologous membrane/ Fibrin gel Block. Objective: Make implant surgery simple, minimally invasive, with less post operative pain and more predictable results. Discussion: With every implant surgery planning, the doctor has to plan bone augmentation according to the size of the defect either it is vertical or horizontal or both. The success of the graft depends upon the soft tissue approximation to keep the graft intact. Sticky bone technique helps retain the graft intact and then it is covered with autologous membrane to avoid complications. Such applications of the growth factors make surgeons and patients life easier with less post operative complications and less post operative discomfort. There are several chair side systems and procedures available which can help make autologous membrane/ dense fibrin mesh blocks. Conclusions: Growth Factors enhance wound healings multifold and protect the grafts by inducing angiogenesis and less post operative discomfort. It can easily be applied wherever any soft or hard tissue grafting is required either in implant surgery, socket preservation, sinus lift procedures or any oral surgery.

    In 2004, Dr. Roshchin graduated from the Moscow State University of Medicine and Dentistry. Doctor prosthodontist, orthodontist dentist. In 2011 he was awarded the academic degree - PhD. Since 2010, he engaged in their own research. Author of 15 patents. In 2013. Director Prosystom. The company is engaged in the development and manufacture of equipment for functional diagnostics, as well as the development of software allowing patients to carry out a comprehensive analysis on the previously obtained axiography data, computed tomography and electromyography. In 2016. this company has developed a new sensor that allows you to record the presence of bruxism patients during sleep.

    Abstract

    Using of additional equipment allows get individual information for functional treatment planning. The development of digital technologies in the dental practice allows to lead high precision complex diagnostics: get CBCT data, 3D cephalometric analysis, analyze occlusion on virtual models, register individual movement trajectories, and finally combine all the data for individual treatment plan. We developed new optical axiograph to analyze violation of lower jaw articulation. It is based on work of only 1 camera. Dentograf allows registration lower jaw movement trajectories for patients with any occlusal pathology. Especially for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment were developed new markers, which mounts only on 1 tooth. Dynamic parameters of movement we can combine with CBCT for individual diagnosis. Combining static and dynamic data in a single software may predict treatment and conduct a dynamic analysis of its stages. Quite often, in the planning of complex treatment, we use advanced calculations - cephalometric analysis and subsequent calculations use the treatment. We developed dynamic cephalometric analysis for doctors to plan how this calculations will influence the treatment or if it is possible to change lower jaw position For the analysis of muscle tension, we have developed a new wireless electromyograph and combined it with axiograph. This greatly increased the accuracy of treatment in complex clinical situations such as total prosthetic reconstruction with the use of implants. It also improved treatment associated with a reduction of the lower facial height in patients with TMJ dysfunction.

  • Easy Clean - A new device for performing the agitation of irrigating substances in Endodontics.

He works in the public service of Endodontics of the unique service of health of Brazil and is professor of Endodontics in the Faculty Alagona of Technology. He participated in several conferences and endodontic meetings. He was an outstanding student of his postdoctoral program in Endodontics, Founding Partner of Advanced Endodontic Training: Endoninjas.

    Abstract

    The main goal of endodontic treatment is to make the root canal system free of as many microorganisms as possible. The anatomical complexity of this system involves numerous lateral, secondary and accessory root canals that communicate the pulp cavity to the periodontium, which makes eradication of microorganisms impossible. However, bacteria located in areas of branches, deltas, irregularities and dentinal tubules not affected by endodontic disinfection procedures probably have their substrate radically reduced, which renders the medium unsuitable for survival. Although sterilization of the root canal system is impractical, there are some determinants for successful endodontic therapy. Principles of cleansing and modeling, already advocated and recognized as essential by Schilder in the 1970s, were established as prerequisites for subsequent procedures to be performed successfully, raising the success rate. Rotating nickel-titanium instruments have become important allies of endodontic therapy, enabling a more accurate modeling of the root canals, optimizing the action of irrigating agents and facilitating three-dimensional hermetic obturation of the intraradicular space. However, anatomical factors remain a huge challenge. The importance of the knowledge of the intrarradicular morphology is unquestionable, and we do not rarely find variations of the aspect of normality like extra channels, C-shaped channels, accentuated curvatures, etc. In Endodontia, the use of mechanized nickel-titanium single-file systems has been widely propagated, especially the reciprocating files. Several studies have shown that no system currently, whether of rotating or reciprocating files, is capable of touching all the walls of the root canal system. In my private practice I have carried out an instrumentation protocol aiming to improve the modeling of non-circular channels in order to better clean areas of difficult access to mechanized instruments. This instrumentation would complement the cleaning and modeling of previously used instruments because it allows the instrument to enter areas of histories, flattening and reentrances. This will improve our disinfection and facilitate the action of our irrigating solution and auxiliary chemical substances, for better disinfection and therefore better filling in order to achieve the success of the case.

  • The presence of enterococci in the oral cavity of one-year-old infants delivered pre-term with very low birth weights (a pilot study).

    Institute of Dental Medicine, 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University
    Czech Republic
    Abstract

    Objective. This pilot study was aimed to identify enterococci in the oral cavity of 12-month-old infants and to compare their occurrence between a cohort of very low birth weight infants (VLBW) and a control cohort of full-term born children. Material and methods. Altogether 116 one-year-old infants were examined, 64 of whom were born prematurely with very low birth weights and 52 were carried full-term. At 12 months of age, both groups of infants were orally examined and smear samples of dental plaque on erupted teeth were taken and processed for the identification of cultivable enterococci. Samples were diluted in PBS and spread on Bile Esculin Azide Agar (Sigma Aldrich) incubated aerobically, colonies preliminarily identified as enterococci were isolated (altogether 223 isolates) and their biochemical properties tested on StreptoTest-24 (Erba Lachema, CZ). Statistics: Chi-square and Fisher’s factorial test (p<0.05). Results. Enterococci were detected in 7 (13.5%) of VLBW infants and in 3 (4.7%) of their full-term peers (p=0.0326). If present their growth density ranged from 1 to 23 CFU per plate. Isolates from VLBW and full-term infants, based on biochemical properties belonged to E. faecalis in 92.6% and 85.2 resp. and to E. faecium in 7.4% and 17.6% resp.; p=0.1240. Conclusion. Enterococci are considered as transient constituent components of the oral microbiome especially in infants´ age. This study confirmed however their early acquisition to the oral cavity of one-year-old infants. Their significantly higher prevalence in VLBW infants as compared to their full-term peers can be explained by their obviously long stay in neonatologic wards in the first months of life. VLBW children have thus a higher chance to acquire enterococcal nosocomial infect, despite of frequent broad spectrum antibiotics administration than full-term and healthy infants cared in home environment. Future research should focus on establishing the clinical significance of the early acquisition of enterococci to the mouth in the on-going child´s age.

    Abstract

    In Nepal, People with intellectual and developmental disability (IDD) have often been neglected by the dental profession, because of a variety of barriers, like insufficient professional knowledge and experience to treat this population, lack of cooperation by the person with IDD, lack of awareness inadequate facilities, lack of financial condition and lack of family care and support and inadequate compensation for treating this population, who takes longer time to approach, assess, and treat. In general, this population has poor oral health and oral hygiene. Data were collected using in-depth interviews with parents and professionals, site visits, observations, document reviews, and direct interaction with people with ID. As per the systemic review of field visit report of 2015/2016 of Association of Intellectual Disability, Nepal, showed this population has poorer oral hygiene, higher prevalence and severity periodontal disease and lack of dental health awareness. Data indicate that people with IDD have more untreated caries, higher prevalence of gingivitis, and other periodontal diseases affecting their ability to chew, speak, and look unattractive .With increasing age and life expectancy this population is in need of good dental care on a regular basis to prevent disease and improve quality of life. And also Evidence supports the need to develop strategies to increase patient acceptance for routine care, additional training for dentists to provide this care, and the development of more effective preventive strategies to minimize the need for this care.

    Abstract

    INTRODUCTION Effective wound closure is critical for minimizing wound complications and preventing wound dehiscence. The various wound closure techniques include staples, traditional nylon and skin sutures, subcuticular sutures and skin adhesives. Currently topical skin adhesives are frequently being used. Most of the adhesives used are cyanoacrylates short and long chain (butyl and isobutyl cyanoacrylates) derivatives.Cyanoacrylates (CAC) are tissue adhesives exhibiting the objectives of achieving coaptation of surgical wound borders, and thus eliciting healing. This material is bacteriostatic and biodegradable, and exhibits suitable tensile strength. Cyanoacrylates glue results in cutaneous closure in less than 5 minutes. It should not be used for deep wound closure or in any patient sensitive to cyanoacrylates. Wound closure using tissue adhesives require careful attention to be given to closure of subcutaneous layer to ensure optimal approximation and tension on the edges of the wound. Cyanoacrylates glue polymerise rapidly within seconds following contact with proteinaceous surfaces to form strong and flexible bonds. This chemical property makes them extensively used in different surgical application. Prior to application of cyanoacrylates, the tissue surface should be cleaned and dried as much as possible. Protection of the surrounding tissues from accidental contact with cyanoacrylates can be done by covering them by gauze, or chloramphenicol 1% ointment. Surgical Technique: Under nasoendotracheal intubation, skin preparation was done with povidine iodine. Skin incision for each procedure was placed in the standard location. Then reduction of fracture and plating was done. In 80% of the patients subcutaneous sutures were placed. Skin closure was done with N-butyl 2 cyanoacrylate glue. Pressure dressing was placed in the usual manner for 24hrs post operatively. RESULTS In this study, REEDA Scale was used to assess healing. Redness, edema, Ecchymosis was seen in all 10 patients, which subsided by 2nd week post operatively. None of the patients had discharge from surgical site on 1st post operative day but was noted in 2 patients 1st week post operatively. There was evidence of wound gaping in 1 patient on 1st post operative day and 2 patients at end of 1st week post operatively. Stony Brook Scar evaluation was used to evaluate post operative cosmesis in this study. No significant cosmetic impairment was found in all patients at the end of the study. Patients were highly satisfied with the excellent cosmetic results. In this study, no adverse inflammatory reactions were encountered and it is relevant to a study conducted by Ahmed Habib et al. The Surgical glue has the characteristic of being rapidly transferred from a liquid to a solid state that occurs at room temperature without the need of catalysts, solvents or application of pressure. CONCLUSION The study reflects qualitative assessment of cyanoacrylates which is simple to use & with proper application resulted in uniform and everted closure of the wound. It is cost efficient as compared to other wound closure materials. The properties of cyanoacrylate glue were appreciated clinically as it showed excellent results with respect to the closure time, post operative healing and patient comfort. The quantitative data as reiterated from results make us conclude that cyanoacrylate glue performed excellently and showed similar cosmetic results when scarring evaluation was done. It is noteworthy that within the limitations of this study, which includes, less sample size and short duration for evaluation, this material showed excellent results and future studies in larger sample size can overcome the above stated limitations.
