Alginate Dressings- Revisiting The Past, Oshine Jha, Oshine Jha

Annual Research Symposium

Wound healing in simple terms is the healing of skin which involves various mechanisms. It is not dressings themselves that heal wounds, but the careful selection of appropriate dressings that provide the optimal wound-healing environment for the individual wound. Wound dressings are prepared from biopolymers, synthetic polymers and biomaterials.

Silver Nano Particle Or Sodium Hypochlorite A Better Denture Cleanser, DR.TESSA KURIACHAN, DR.RAHUL SENAN, DR. PARVATHY B, DR. KEERTHI PT 2024 SREE ANJANEYA INSTITUTE OF DENTAL SCIENCES

Silver Nano Particle Or Sodium Hypochlorite A Better Denture Cleanser, Dr.Tessa Kuriachan, Dr.Rahul Senan, Dr. Parvathy B, Dr. Keerthi Pt

Annual Research Symposium

Denture hygiene is compromised both due to the limitations of the denture base material as well as the lack of manual dexterity of denture wearers. Moreover, the rough tissue surface of the dentures affect the initial formation of candidal biofilms probably because it provides a greater surface area and protected sites for colonization. Among the various methods available to disinfect dentures, chemical method using Sodium hypochlorite seems to be the most effective one. Even though sodium hypochlorite is an effective denture cleanser,it has many disadvantages like the increased roughness of the denture surface and decreased colour stability. So a better …


Dentofacial Effects Of Radiotherapy On Pediatric Population With Retinoblastoma, Kristi Truong 2024 Roseman University of Health Sciences

Dentofacial Effects Of Radiotherapy On Pediatric Population With Retinoblastoma, Kristi Truong

Annual Research Symposium

This literature review investigates the dentofacial consequences of radiotherapy in young patients with retinoblastoma by referencing current research. In addition, the management and rehabilitation of the dentofacial abnormalities, highlighting orthodontic, surgical, and prosthetic approaches, is examined. By understanding the changes of dentofacial development due to retinoblastoma treatment, effective management techniques can be implemented to resolve significant issues, relating to dental and skeletal relationship and facial appearance.


Rapid Direct Wax Up For Provisional Crown Fabrication, Debra A. Woo DDS, MA, Chi Tran 2024 A.A.Dugoni School of Dentistry/UOP SF

Rapid Direct Wax Up For Provisional Crown Fabrication, Debra A. Woo Dds, Ma, Chi Tran

Pacific Journal of Health

While there are numerous choices for provisionalization, this technique is advantageous when a patient presents with an immediate need for temporization and there is limited time in the schedule for both the patient and provider. Providing an efficient solution using readily available materials that address the esthetics, function and reduction of sensitivity until the patient can be appointed for definitive treatment is illustrated.

Background: Several treatment options are planned for completely edentulous patients rehabilitation which were developed to meet patients desires and requirements, starting from conventional complete denture till implant supported fixed full arch cases. Each technique has its own indication and limitations. Passive fit is an important factor for the long-term success of implant- prosthesis, which necessitate accurate transfer of the implant position. Recently, digital impressions have been introduced in dental implant treatment. By the use of scan body and different optical scanning methods, the position of scan bodies can be transferred to a virtual implant position within the dental arch. Material …


Implant Overdenture Abutment Loosening Under Hyperbaric Conditions, Zana Jamal Al-Saloum 2024 West Virginia University

Implant Overdenture Abutment Loosening Under Hyperbaric Conditions, Zana Jamal Al-Saloum

Graduate Theses, Dissertations, and Problem Reports

Objectives: To investigate the effect of various hyperbaric air pressures on the loosening of LOCATOR® (ZEST Anchors, LLC, Escondido, CA USA) overdenture abutments.

The pressure conditions tested are meant to simulate scuba diving conditions in edentulous patients that are restored with implant-retained tissue-supported overdentures. Another sub-goal of this study is to determine whether or not there is a difference in LOCATOR® loosening when the sample is exposed to six cycles/dives as opposed to one cycle/dive.

Methods: 36 ZimVie Tapered Screw Vent Implants with a 3.5mm diameter implant platform, and a 2.5mm diameter (and 1.5mm deep) internal hexagon were …

Shore A Hardness And Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrophotometer Analysis Of Thymol-Modified Maxillofacial Silicone Material, Manar Hussein Ramadhan, Faiza M. Abdul-Ameer

Maaen Journal for Medical Sciences

The longevity of any prosthesis depends on the materials from which it was fabricated, which is why defects in the material properties may reduce the service life of the prosthesis and necessitate its replacement. This study aims to test the influence of incorporating different weight percentages of thymol micro-powder into the maxillofacial silicone matrix on Shore A hardness of the silicone. Room-temperature vulcanised VST-50 maxillofacial silicone was used to prepare the study specimens. Thymol micro-powder was incorporated into the silicone matrix in two percentages (0.75 wt.% and 1 wt.%). 30 specimens were prepared and then subdivided equally into three groups, …

The Back Page Commentary: Let’S Talk About The Real World, Danielle Gehlert DDS 2023 Private Practice

The Back Page Commentary: Let’S Talk About The Real World, Danielle Gehlert Dds

The Journal of the Michigan Dental Association

Dr. Danielle Gehlert, a private practitioner, writes that in the realm of continuing education for dental professionals, there's a need for a shift in focus from idealized, "sexy" cases to real-world patient scenarios. This commentary calls for seminars and programs emphasizing long-term restorative planning, including successes and failures. The practical considerations of patient financial limitations and willingness to engage in dental care must be integral to treatment plans. Real-world cases should reflect the diverse situations dental practitioners encounter and the ethical responsibility to provide affordable and effective treatment options.

Fabrication And Characterization Of Nylon 6 Fiber Via Wet Spinning Method For Application As A Reinforcing Material For A Direct Dental Bridge, Dissa Kirana Wijaya, Nina Djustiana, Yanwar Faza, Arief Cahyanto, Andri Hardiansyah

Makara Journal of Science

Nylon is a biocompatible thermoplastic polymer that is well known for its excellent fracture resistance, making it suitable for fabricating fiber-reinforced composite (FRC)-based dental bridges. FRC is widely used in dentistry. This study aimed to investigate the structural and morphological characteristics of the nylon 6 fiber prepared using five different weights of nylon 6 dissolved in formic acid. The nylon 6 fiber was successfully fabricated via a simple wet spinning method using water as a coagulant. The fiber was then characterized using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, optical microscopy, and scanning electron microscopy. FTIR spectroscopy confirmed the presence of nylon …
