Abstract:

Dentistry and medicine are undergoing a sea change in understanding what constitutes effective preventative care.  That change is driven by the emerging knowledge of the oral microbiome and its implications for the prevention and treatment of disease. Biofilms are not naturally removed from the body, and they harbor complex mixtures of microorganisms.  Some of these organisms go dormant, appearing dead when treated by antimicrobials.  Others are able to communicate and organize defenses to antimicrobials when the environment permits. Both situations contribute to the rapid regrowth of oral biofilms, dental plaque, and oral pathogens within hours and days of traditional sanitation and debridement and mechanical plaque removal.  Thus, the story begins from the point of view of a bacterium and what we know about how that bacterium interacts within plaque biofilm.  However, the story must now shift to inflammation, the body’s response to the insult of bacterial infection, and effective strategies leading to enhanced standards of practice in clinics and improved home oral care.

We explore the villains of the story…the oral pathogens that reside within the biofilm, the heroes…human saliva as defender of the oral cavity and the bacteria that actually impede disease and infection, and the fog … the educational challenges and shifts in thinking that are brought about as we learn more about the microbiome.  We close with a consideration of changes in standards of professional dental hygiene and home oral hygiene care.

Abstract:

Nothing has captured the dental profession`s imagination in the past few years like the introduction of cone beam volumetric imaging, wich is now referred to by most clinicians and even in the literature as cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). Sometimes reliable diagnostics in oral pathology is crucial, especially under difficult circumstances or in complex cases– to see more anatomical details to know more.

CBCT scans allow the dentist to prepare for complicated procedures and make them as fast, efficient and atraumatic as possible.

This lecture will be convincing the participants that modern diagnostics, based on CBCT scans, provides effective tools which help to dispel doubts and plan safe treatment without exposing patients to high doses of radiation.

X-ray images are invaluable support in dentist’s everyday work. 2D and 3D scans which are acquired and analyzed correctly allow us to diagnose the patient quickly and confidently and propose them a safe treatment plan. CBCT offers even broader range of possibilities. It  will presented a full spectrum of possibilities of integrating CBCT imaging in  dentist’s dayly practice.

Abstract:

Introduction: Gingival recession is among one of the most common periodontal conditions affecting large number of patients. The most common etiological factors are periodontal diseases, mechanical forces like faulty tooth brushing, high frenum attachment, trauma from occlusion, iatrogenic factors like orthodontic tooth movement, poor restoration and some anatomic conditions. In this study a comparative evaluation of amniotic membrane, collagen membrane and connective tissue graft  was done  for the treatment of gingival recession .

Materials and Methods: A total of 21 patients were enrolled in the study after obtaining informed consent. 7 patients were randomly allocated in three groups, amniotic membrane, collagen membrane and sub-epithelial connective tissue was respectively applied for the corrective surgery. The clinical outcomes were evaluated using plaque index, gingival index, recession depth, width and probing pocket depth with keratinized mucosa.

Results: The   results showed that amniotic membrane, collagen membrane can be used as an alternative material for correction of gingival recession. No significant difference was observed in the clinical parameters in all the three groups. All groups showed an overall improvement by reduction in the recession depth and width. A gain in clinical attachment level with keratinized gingiva was observed in all the groups.

Conclusion: Amniotic and collagen membrane can be used as a good clinical alternative for correction of gingival recession. The clinical outcomes observed were at par (comparable) with the gold standard sub-epithelial connective tissue graft.
