Design Of Parallel Robot For Dental Articulation And Its Optimization, Abulimiti Delimulati 2018 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Design Of Parallel Robot For Dental Articulation And Its Optimization, Abulimiti Delimulati

Mechanical (and Materials) Engineering -- Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research

A dental articulator is a mechanical device used to simulate the relative position and motion between the upper and lower jaw when constructing and testing dental prostheses. Typically, it can be adjusted to approximate patient-specific jaw kinematics in order to analogue the static relationship and specific motions of a patient’s mandible to maxilla. However, the use of dental articulators is essentially a trial-and-error method in order to fine-tune fit and function of a dental prosthesis. Some of the most advanced current dental articulators can reproduce the position and the motion passively; furthermore, dentists need special training for measuring patients ...


Cannabidiol Alters The Immune Response To Porphyromonas Gingivalis In Mice., Shilpa Singh 2018 University of Louisville

Cannabidiol Alters The Immune Response To Porphyromonas Gingivalis In Mice., Shilpa Singh

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Background: Porphyromonas gingivalis is an important etiologic agent of chronic periodontitis, an infectious disease defined by destruction of supporting tissues of the teeth. Marijuana is a risk factor for chronic periodontitis, although underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. As phytocannabinoids have been ascribed antiinflammatory properties, we hypothesized that cannabidiol exposure would lead to altered immune response to P. gingivalis infection facilitating bacterial persistence and, subsequently, increased alveolar bone loss in cannabidiol (CBD)-exposed mice. Methods: P. gingivalis-infected cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2) knockout and wild type C57/Bl6 mice were exposed, or not exposed, to cannabidiol. Oral swabs from mice were used ...


Dental Hygeinists Clinical Assessment Of Dental Cervical Lesions, Shyanne Padilla 2018 University of New Mexico

Dental Hygeinists Clinical Assessment Of Dental Cervical Lesions, Shyanne Padilla

Dental Hygiene ETDs

Dental hygiene is among one of the fastest growing career fields in the healthcare system. With dental hygienists spending a considerable amount of time with their patients during periodic recall appointments, it is important for dental hygienists to be calibrated with one another in how they recognize and aid in recommending treatment options for certain dental conditions. Dental cervical lesions is one of the most commonly seen oral implications in the dental office, many times being associated with tooth sensitivity. With the array of etiologies and treatment options for dental cervical lesions it is important to see if this same ...

Dental Hygienists' Knowledge Of Medical Marijuana: A Survey, Lizbeth Hinojos 2018 University New Mexico

Dental Hygienists' Knowledge Of Medical Marijuana: A Survey, Lizbeth Hinojos

Dental Hygiene ETDs

Cannabis consumption is at an all-time high in the United States. Due to its fast growth in the medical industry and the lack of FDA approval, research is very limited. Dental hygienists’ will likely encounter a patient under the influence of this substance in the dental office. To provide the best quality of care, the dental hygienist must be aware of the oral implications, side effects and necessary modifications to treatment. Therefore, dental hygiene providers must be knowledgeable on medical marijuana to have discussions with patients when needed. Due to scarce research on the topic it makes it difficult to ...


Effect Of Expansive Force On Mesenchymal Stem Cells Isolated From The Mid-Palatal Suture Of Mice, Samaneh Mojarrad 2018 University of Pennsylvania

Effect Of Expansive Force On Mesenchymal Stem Cells Isolated From The Mid-Palatal Suture Of Mice, Samaneh Mojarrad

Dental Theses

Understanding the mechanisms by which craniofacial sutures respond to mechanical force is essential for improving orthodontic treatment strategies. However, the innate ability to regenerate bone from calvarial stem cells is still unknown. Therefore, we have initiated a study to isolate cells from the mid-palatal suture of mice. The aim of our study is to evaluate mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) characteristics of cells isolated from the mid-palatal suture and their ability for osteogenic differentiation when subjected to cyclic tensile force in vitro. A total of 10, 6-week old male C57BL/6 mice were used to obtain mid-palatal suture cells. Cultured cells ...

Orthodontic Treatment Planning Using Direct Visual Approximation Of Arch Length Discrepancy And Cephalometric Analyses, Kathleen Rouse Vaught 2018 Marquette University

Orthodontic Treatment Planning Using Direct Visual Approximation Of Arch Length Discrepancy And Cephalometric Analyses, Kathleen Rouse Vaught

Master's Theses (2009 -)

Introduction: Space analysis and radiographic analyses are crucial elements in developing an orthodontic treatment plan. It is imperative that the orthodontist makes accurate measurements in order to come up with the most effective treatment options for each patient. Some practitioners refrain from direct measurements to determine arch length discrepancies and instead determine the amount of crowding by using direct visual approximation. In addition, more orthodontists do not routinely trace all cephalograms taken. If more and more orthodontists are using direct visual approximation to determine angular cephalometric measurements, it is important to assess the accuracy and reliability of these measurements. This ...


Orthodontic Open-Coil Spring Deactivation Forces Differ With Varying Activation Levels, Ryan Lubinsky 2018 Marquette University

Orthodontic Open-Coil Spring Deactivation Forces Differ With Varying Activation Levels, Ryan Lubinsky

Master's Theses (2009 -)

Coil springs are used in orthodontics to deliver forces to move teeth. However, the optimal amount of activation to produce predictable, continuous deactivation forces, for the purpose of orthodontic tooth movement, is unclear. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the deactivation force characteristics of nickel-titanium open-coil springs after varying levels of activation. Methods: Four open-coil spring products were evaluated: Dentsply GAC 100 gram and 150 gram, Orthoclassic Orthodontics Medium 150 gram, and American Orthodontics nickel-titanium springs. Open-coil springs were compressed (activation) with a universal testing machine to 20, 40, 60, or 80% of original length (15 mm; n ...

Using The Rat Grimace Scale To Detect Orofacial Pain In Mechanically-Induced Temporomandibular Joint Pain In Rats, Ya-Hsin Yu, Megan M. Sperry, Beth A. Winkelstein, Eric J. Granquist

Dental Theses

Introduction: Orofacial pain in animal models of TMJ disorders is typically evaluated by measuring evoked reflexive responses. Since the rat grimace scale (RGS) was adopted recently to assess spontaneous pain in other pathologies, this study evaluated its effectiveness for TMJ pain in the rat. RGS was evaluated using a well-defined pain model of TMJ loading.

Material and Methods: Female Holtzman rats were assigned to separate groups: loading (n=10); sham (n=4); loading with naproxen (n=4) or vehicle (n=3) on days 4 and 5 after pain developed. Jaw loading was imposed for 7 consecutive days under anesthesia by ...

Lipoxin A4 Attenuates The Inflammatory Response In Stem Cells Of The Apical Papilla Via Alx/Fpr2, A. Gaudin, Miroslav Tolar, Ove A. Peters 2018 University of Nantes

Lipoxin A4 Attenuates The Inflammatory Response In Stem Cells Of The Apical Papilla Via Alx/Fpr2, A. Gaudin, Miroslav Tolar, Ove A. Peters

Dugoni School of Dentistry Faculty Articles

Similar to the onset phase of inflammation, its resolution is a process that unfolds in a manner that is coordinated and regulated by a panel of mediators. Lipoxin A4 (LXA4) has been implicated as an anti-inflammatory, pro-resolving mediator. We hypothesized that LXA4 attenuates or prevents an inflammatory response via the immunosuppressive activity of Stem Cells of the Apical Papilla (SCAP). Here, we report for the first time in vitro that in a SCAP population, lipoxin receptor ALX/FPR2 was constitutively expressed and upregulated after stimulation with lipopolysaccharide and/or TNF-α. Moreover, LXA4 significantly enhanced proliferation, migration, and ...

Treatment Of Obstructive Sleep Apnea With Maxillo-Mandibular Advancement Surgery: Evaluation And Predictors Of Success, Daniel Taub, Dmd, Md, Michael Courtney, Dmd, Md, Karl Doghramji, Md

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Posters

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a well-recognized disease entity affecting approximately 2% to 4% of the population. Maxillomandibular advancement (MMA) surgery is a highly successful surgical alternative to poorly tolerated CPAP therapy and achieves a success rate of 89% in the current literature. Our present study evaluates the effectiveness of MMA surgery in the treatment of patients with moderate to severe OSA based on Shers criteria of 50% reduction in AHI and AHI < 20. Radiographic and clinical treatment variables were evaluated in determining predictors of success for MMA in individuals with OSA.
