  • Poster Presentation: Preparation differences for CAD / CAM monolithic and veneered fixed restorations made of zirconia ceramics: A literature review
    Preparations for crown and bridge restorations made of ZrO2 ceramics depend on the preferred CAD/CAM milling protocol – in full contour (monolithic) or a framework, that is additionally, veneered with ceramic masses. Purpose. The aim of the current literature review is to summarize the best practices for abutment teeth preparation differences for CAD/CAM monolithic and veneered fixed restorations made of ceramics based on zirconium dioxide. Materials and methods. A literature search was conducted in the PubMed data base entering the query items: „dental, preparations, zirconia ceramics”, combined by the Boolean operator “OR”, with no limitation in the publication dates. Selection criteria: Only studies focusing the preparation requirements for fixed monolithic and veneered ZrO2 restorations were considered. Results and discussion. Minimal invasive chamfer or even knife-edge preparations with axial and occlusal reduction of 0, 3 - 0, 5 mm are needed for teeth restored with monolithic ZrO2 restorations. For veneered frameworks the classical all-ceramic preparation protocol is preferable - radial shoulder or chamfer with axial reduction of 1 – 1, 5 mm and occlusal reduction in the range of 1, 5 – 2 mm. For monolithic restorations the only additional material on the top of the crown or bridge is the glaze, its fracture resistance is extremely high and this fact defines minimal required thickness. For veneered frameworks, more space is necessary for decreasing the risk of adhesive and cohesive fractures of the additional ceramic layers. Conclusion. Monolithic ZrO2 constructions offer more versatile preparation protocol, which makes them more sparing to the hard dental tissues of the abutment teeth. Key words: CAD/CAM, preparations, monolithic, veneered, zirconia ceramics

  • Poster Presentation: Comparative study of the effect of gum arabic and sodium fluoride on enamel white spots
    Gum Arabic (GA) is edible, gummy exudate of Acacia trees. It is the oldest and best known of all natural gums and it is considered to have an ability to enhance remineralization, due to its high concentration of Ca. Aim of the study: Evaluate and compare the effect of topical application of GA versus and the effect of NaF• on the surface topography, Ca content and surface micro-hardness of enamel WSL•. Materials and methods: 21 caries-free recently extracted premolars were randomly divided into 3 groups, 7 premolars each, according to the treatment solution used as follows: Group I (10mg/ml GA), Group II (1000ppm NaF) and Group III (DW*). First, all samples were examined to act as a baseline and were named as subgroups A (IA, IIA & IIIA). Then all the samples were subjected to artificial WSL creation by immersion in a demineralizing solution and they were examined again as subgroups B (IB, IIB & IIIB). Samples were subsequently subjected to the three different treatment solutions previously mentioned in the form of pH demineralization- remineralization cycles and were examined again as subgroups C (IC, IIC & IIIC). Results: Surface topography evaluation using ESEM• showed signs of remineralization similarly after treatment with GA and NaF. Ca content and micro-hardness evaluation using EDXA• and Vicker’s tester respectively showed significant increase in Ca wt% and micro-hardness values similarly after treatment with GA and NaF, while DW group showed no significant difference. Conclusions: GA has a remineralizing effect on WSL similar to NaF indicating that GA is a potential remineralizing agent. KEYWORDS: • NaF: Sodium Fluoride. • WSL: White spot lesions • DW: Distilled water. • ESEM: Environmental scanning electron microscope. • EDXA: Energy dispersive X-ray microanalyzer

  • Poster Presentation: Characteristics of Co-Cr dental alloys processed by digital technologies
    The potential for fabricating metallic dental components with a complex geometry directly from digital data using automated equipment and appropriate materials is very significant. The recent introduction of digital technologies in dental field has marked a turning point in the prosthesis production methodology, from the traditional hand made to the innovative automated approach. These technologies can be classified as based on subtractive manufacturing, such as the milling of premanufactured materials assisted by computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems or on additive manufacturing (AM), such as the recently developed laser-based methods, like selective laser sintering (SLS) and selective laser melting (SLM). The objective of the study was to identify the different structural and morphological characteristics of Co-Cr dental alloys processed by alternative manufacturing techniques in order to understand the influence of microstructure on restorations properties and their clinical behavior. The structural information of the samples was obtained by X-ray diffraction, the morphology and the topography of the samples were investigated by Scanning Electron Microscopy and Atomic Force Microscope. Even if there is little difference between the chemical compositions of the Co-Cr alloys used for different manufacturing technologies, the structural and morphological characteristics of Co-Cr dental alloys processed by alternative manufacturing techniques are different. Taking into account the many benefits of digital technologies, and the findings regarding the studied structural and morphological characteristics of dental alloys processed by alternative manufacturing techniques, more research is required in order to understand the influence of microstructure on restoration properties, further veneering procedures of the frameworks, and last but not least the clinical behavior.

  • Poster Presentation: Evaluation of clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction of digital and conventional impression techniques: A comparative study
    The objective of this research was to compare between two different impression techniques from the perspective of patient preferences and treatment comfort. Materials and Methods Thirty eight individuals with no past experience with either conventional or digital impressions were incorporated in this study. Conventional impressions of maxillary and mandibular dental arches were obtained with a polyether impression material and bite registrations were made with polysiloxane bite registration material. After two weeks the digital impressions and bite scans were carried out with an intra-oral scanner. Immediately after the impressions were obtained, the participants’ attitudes, preferences and perceptions regarding impression techniques were assessed by a questionnaire. The perceived source of stress was assessed by the State-Trait Anxiety Scale. Processing steps of the impression techniques (tray selection, working time etc.) were registered in seconds. Statistical analyses were performed with the Wilcoxon Rank test, and p < 0.05 was considered significant. Results A significant differences between the groups (p < 0.05) in terms of total working time and processing steps were observed. Participants reported that digital impressions were more comfortable in comparison to conventional methods. Conclusions Digital impressions resulted in a more time-efficient technique when compared to conventional impressions. Patients favored the digital impression technique rather than conventional techniques.

  • Poster Presentation: Vital Pulpotomy as an Alternative to Root Canal Treatment in Permanent Teeth. Future and Challenges
    The Aim is to explore the outcome of alternative pulpal treatment in permanent teeth. Several clinical studies have been conducted to evaluate the outcome of vital pulp therapy performed in permanent teeth with carious pulp exposure, these study assists the outcome of pulpotomy in permanent teeth with open or closed Apex. The preliminary results of these studies were very promising, with a success rate over 90%. This is after a thorough understanding of dental pulp biology, histology and its reparative process and apply these understandings to create materials with excellent sealing ability, antimicrobial effect, ease handling and Biocompatible with vital dental pulp (MTA, CEM, Biodentin) that would help in conservative approaches to treat pulpal inflammation. By applying these techniques, plenty of benefits in the side of the operator as well as the patient like: less post op pain, more patient compliance (especially young patients), less treatment time and cost and the main point is we keep the radicular pulp tissue vital in order to maintain their protective stress bearing effect and mechanoreceptor features which might reduce future tooth fracture. Further clinical and histological studies with long term observations needed in order to establish a conclusive guideline for case selection, operative procedure and materials to be used.

  • Poster Presentation: Influence of Orthodontic Treatment on Oral Hygiene Routine
    Patients with orthodontic appliances are at risk of acquiring periodontal disease and caries Although these patients main purpose for seeking treatment is improving their esthetics it is the orthodontists responsibility is to provide them with healthy functional occlusion Our aim is to improve oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment with instructions given before and during brackets appliance with special techniques used to clean their teeth. Five hundred questionnaires has been distributed to patients undergoing fixed orthodontic treatment in order to investigate oral hygiene habits and diet analysis before and during the treatment. Statistical analysis was carried out Result: The data was analyzed by comparing the responses of study subjects towards the influence of orthodontic treatment on their brushing pattern, dietary habits, teeth & gingival problems, and oral hygiene care. Auxiliary such as mouth wash and interproximal brushes shows increase use. By reducing harmful dietary substances, the study subjects had changed their dietary habits during orthodontic treatment when compared to before treatment. There is a significant difference in the number of subjects who have responded that they have given proper oral hygiene instruction on the day of bonding, when compared at before (62.7%) and during (87.4%) treatment ( p<0.0001). Conclusion: Patients who have been given orthodontic instructions for oral hygiene routine showed improvement in their cleaning habits. We recommend giving patients proper oral hygiene instructions and reinforcing it on each visit by the orthodontist or hygienist.

  • Poster Presentation: Stem Cells in Regenerative Dentistry
    Deep carious lesions have always been restored by inorganic cements based on calcium based mineral aggregates which never disintegrates and thus normal mineral volume is never completely restored. Recent progress in stem cell research shows promising future of regenerative therapy that can be applied in dentistry to treat dental caries without compromising with the vitality of teeth. This study is based upon the data collected from research work done in regenerative dentistry in various prestigious institutions around the world. This study describes two different approaches carried out in two separate researches to achieve a common goal of regenerating dentin by stimulating the resident stem cells of dental pulp in physically damaged rat teeth.

  • Poster Presentation: Would Nano-Ormocer be the new esthetic filling material replacing Nano-Composite?
    Would Nano-Ormocer be the new esthetic filling material replacing Nano-Composite? Abstract Background: The increased demand for esthetic restorations and need of improvement of the esthetic properties of composite resins contributed for the development of these materials, which have been improved to adequately meet the clinical requirements of direct and indirect restorations in anterior and posterior teeth. Aim of the study: This study was conducted to assess the influence of commonly used types of drinks in Saudi Arabia, on color stability of nano-ormocer bulk filling material compared to nano-hybrid resin-composite Materials and methods: two types of materials were used nanohybrid composite (Filtek Z250) and Nano-Oemocer (VOCO admira fusion x-tra). A total number of 40 cylindrical specimens with dimensions of (4 mm in thickness and 6 mm in diameter) were divided into two equal groups according to the material used. Then each group was subdivided into 4 equal subgroups according to storage media (Arabiana coffee, Nestle classic instant coffee, Pepsi and distilled water as control). For both materials: the initial color was recorded. After three weeks of storage, the deviation from initial color was recorded. Results: there was significant color change of nano-ormocer compared to nano-hybrid composite in Pepsi and Arbiana coffee storage media.
