Abstract

The dentin-pulp complex exhibits various responses to caries, including events of injury, defense, and repair. The overall responses dependent on pulp cell activity and the signaling processes, which regulate the behavior of these cells. The signals for tissue repair are thought to be mediated by dentin-bound growth factors released during caries progression. Growth factors are a key of molecules responsible for signaling a variety of cellular process following dental injury. The endogenous proteolytic enzymes (Matrix metalloproteinases, MMPs) present in dentin matrix might also participate in releasing bioactive molecule. Several members of the MMP family are found in the soft and hard tissue compartment of dentin-pulp complex. Their presumed role in many physiological process during the development and maintenance of the dentin-pulp complex, they may also contribute to the pathogenesis of dentin caries and the responses elicited by caries.

Abstract

Tetralogy of fallot is one of the congenital cyanotic heart disease that is often found in children. The disorder has four features, a ventricular septal defect, aortic overriding, infundibulary stenotic, and hypertrophy right ventricular. Like other congenital heart disease, tetralogy of fallot sometimes related to fatal complications, such as bacterial endocarditis which was related to dental infections. The correct management of oral and dental conditions is important to prevent bacterial endocarditis. This paper discussed the oral and dental conditions and its management in two cases of tetralogy of fallot children.

Abstract

Oral candidiasis is one of the most common opportunistic infections in HIV/AIDS patients. It serves as important markers of HIV infection, viral load, and CD4 cells count in the blood and predict disease progression to AIDS. The development of oral candidiasis in HIV/AIDS patients associated by imbalances between Candida and impaired host immune defenses that caused by decreased of CD4 cell counts and the increased of plasma HIV-viral load. Since the introduction of antiretroviral therapy combination, commonly known as Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART), it has been observed that certain oral lesions, such as oral candidiasis as declined. The aim of this paper is to review the mechanism of combination antiretroviral therapy influenced the frequency of oral candidiasis in HIV/AIDS patient. We conclude that combination antiretroviral therapy generally reduced the frequency and severity of oral candidiasis in HIV/AIDS patient.

Abstract

Since most authors use the reversible pulpitis and irreversible pulpitis classification, however, many dentists still do not implement these new classifications. Research was made using a descriptive method by proposing questionnaire to dentists from various dental clinics. The numbers of the dentists participating in this research are 22 dentists. All respondents use the diagnosis sheet during their examinations on patients. Nonetheless, it cant be known what diagnosis card used and most of the dentists are still using the old classification. Concerning responses given towards the new classification: a) the new classification had been heard, however, it was not clear (36.3%); b) the new classification has never been heard at all (63.6%). Then, responses concerning whether a new development is important to be followed-up or not: a) there are those who think that information concerning new development is very important (27.2%); b) those who feel that it is important to have new information (68.3%); c) those who think that new information is not important (8%). It concluded that information concerning the development of classification of pulp inflammation did not reach the dentists.

Abstract

Three different dental implant placements according to surgical implant bed situations were observed in its bone integration 3 months after dental implant insertion. This observation was done on implant system which has plateau or fin system. Elf implants were placed in the upper jaw in two patients. In case one, two implants were inserted immediately after tooth extraction, and the other six implants were placed in the alveolar crest regions in delayed implantation or in which the teeth had been extracted over 6 months of period. In case two, three implants were inserted in the post trauma region in the anterior maxilla, which the labial plate had been lost and reconstructed with bone grafting procedure using a mixture of alloplastic and autogenous bones. The alveolar reconstruction was needed to be performed due to only thin alveolar crest width was left intact. All of those implants observed showed in good integration.

Abstract

It is obvious that sleep disturbances may induced by acute pulpal or periodontal pain. Other causes of sleep disturbances which also termed as sleep dysfunction, or insomnia, according to the patient has to be treated by physician. Nevertheless, in a case report, surprisingly, periodontal treatment relieved sleep disturbances and premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Coincidentally, women also more vulnerable to sleep disturbances and periodontal disease. It is also interesting that the exact etiology of PMS is still unknown, and 80% women who suffered from PMS also experience sleep disturbances. Recently, there has been increasing numbers of literatures and evidence-based cases linking periodontal disease to systemic diseases. However, systemic effects of periodontal disease that lead to PMS which associated with sleep disturbances are rarely discussed. Several mechanisms had been proposed to involve in these symptoms: female sexual hormonal imbalance, stimulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA-axis) and neurogenic switching mechanism. In addition, as estrogen makes women more susceptible to stress, it worsen the symptoms. The glucocorticoid hormones synthesized upon stimulation of the HPA-axis, either by stress or pro-inflammatory cytokines, may disrupt the sleep-wake cycle; and also create estrogen dominance. The aim of this study is to propose the etiopathogenesis of PMS which associated with sleep disturbances that may be related to chronic periodontitis. Since in this case report scaling and curettage resulted in the disappearing of PMS and sleep disturbances; the conclusion is that chronic periodontal disease may act as one of the etiologies of PMS and sleep disturbance.

Abstract

Oral tongue cancers are characterized by a high degree of local invasion and a high rate of metastases to the cervical lymph nodes. Also, treatment options for this cancer are limited. However, a new strategy for refractory cancer, gene therapy is watched with keen interest. Recently, a novel method for high-efficiency and region-controlled in vivo gene transfer was developed by combining in vivo electro-gene therapy and intratumoral plasmid DNA injection. In the present study, a nonviral gene transfer system, in vivo electrogene therapy in human oral tongue cancer cell, SP-C1 xenograft was examined. The aim of the study is to examine the efficiency of transfection of exogenous p27Kip1 gene by electroporation and the antitumor activity of p27Kip1 gene therapy in human oral tongue cancer xenografts using pcDNA3.1-p27Kip1 wild type (wt) and pcDNA3.1 empty vector with the local application of electric pulses. To evaluate this in vivo gene transfer method, the enhanced green fluorescence protein (EGFP) gene was transfected into xenografts by electroporation. The efficiency of transfection of exogenous p27Kip1 gene by electroporation was confirmed by Western blotting analysis. To estimate the reduction of oral tongue cancer xenografts by this method, the size of SP-C1 xenografts in nude mice after electroporation with wild type p27Kip1 gene was measured. The growth of tumors was markedly suppressed by wild type p27Kip1 gene transfection by electroporation compared with transfection of empty vector only. Moreover, histological specimens revealed apoptotic cell death was increased in wild type p27Kip1-transfected tumors than empty vector. These results suggest that it is possible to transfer wild type p27Kip1 into human oral tongue cancer xenografts using electroporation. Wild type p27Kip1 has a high-potencially to suppress the growth of tumors. Finally, combination system of pcDNA3.1-p27Kip1 wt-injected tumor and electroporationmight be used for human oral cancer.

Abstract

Oroantral fistula is one of the common complications following dentoalveolar surgeries in the maxilla. Closure of oroantral fistula should be done as early as possible to eliminate the risk of infection of the antrum. Palatal flap is one of the commonly used methods in the closure of oroantral fistula. A case is reported of a male patient who had two oroantral communication after having his two dental implants removed. Buccal flap was used to close the defects, but one of them remained open and resulted in oroantral fistula. Second correction was performed to close the defect using buccal fat pad, but the fistula still persisted. Finally, palatal rotational flap was used to close up the fistula. The result was good, as the defect was successfully closed and the donor site healed uneventfully.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to measure and compare two different polymerizing processes, heat polymerizing (HP) and microwave polymerizing (MP), on the three dimensional changes in the fitting surface and artificial teeth of maxillary complete dentures. A threedimensional coordinate measurement system was used to record distortion of the specimens. The distortion of the fitting surface was measured from the reference plane on the fitting side from which a coordinate system was set, and the movement of the artificial teeth and the distortion of the polished surface was measured from the reference plane of the artificial tooth side, from which a coordinate system was set. It was clearly showed that various distortions of denture specimens after polymerization process can be measured with this three-coordinate measuring machine. The study showed that the overall distortion of the fitting surface in HP specimens was shown to be larger than in MP ones.
