Implant Therapy and Temporomandibular Disorder

Journal of Korean Dental Science, volume 2, issue 1, 2009, Pages 4~10
Though implant treatment is considered as a common treatment option for edentulous patients, there have been few studies on the temporomandibular disorder (TMD) related with implant treatment. The purposes of this study were to evaluate the relevance of TMD to the implant patients and to evaluate the risk factors of TMD in relation with implant treatment. For the evaluation of various risk factors of TMD in relation with implant therapy, clinical evaluation focused on patient factors and implant factors. From a group of 694 patients, 25 patients (3.6 %) were included in this study. The majority of the patients were included in the asymptomatic 'adaptive' group. Parafunction was detected in 11 patients, 8 patients were male. Four patients having parafunction showed complications such as implant failure or fracture of the suprastructure. From the results, it is possible that TMJ related symptoms are developed or aggravated after implant therapy, which requires relatively more chair time; so TMJ examination should be included in the pre-operative evaluation for dental implant patients. Also, it is important to treat patients after they sign an informed consent that includes a detailed explanation on the possibility of TMD during treatment.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the possibility to reduce the toxicity of oil based root canal sealers containing calcium hydroxide using MTT & agar overlay assays. Thus some formulations of traditional root canal sealers were replaced with oil-soluble solvents and experimental root canal sealers manufactured. In MTT assay, Cell viability of all experimental sealers in addition with oil soluble solvents were observed significantly higher than both control groups, especially according to replace zinc and/or calcium ion components. Also agar overlay assay was appeared moderate to no cell responses into modifying both zinc and/or calcium ion components and oil soluble solvent weight. Authors found the reducing effect of cell toxicity through significant role of oil soluble solvent factor into root canal sealer containing calcium hydroxide.

Tightening of the screws in implant restorations should be accurate and precise. If applied torque is too low, screw loosening would be occurred. With too high torque, the screw fracture might take place. Various torque generating devices are developed and employed to apply a proper torque. The purpose of this investigation was to determine and compare the accuracy of the torque controllers. In this study, 4 types of torque controllers were used; electronic torque controller, torque limiting device, torque indicating device and contra angle torque driver. Digital torque gauge was employed to measure the de-torque value. Thirty cycles of tightening and loosening were done with each torque controller. All implant torque controllers have shown slight errors and deviations. The torque liming device exhibited the most accurate data. No significant difference was found among the mean de-torque values of the electronic torque controller, torque indicating device and contra angle torque driver. In the limitation of this study, it would be recommended that the implant torque controllers should be checked whether uniformed and precise torque can be generated and a measuring error should be corrected.

Purpose : The purpose of this pilot experiment was to evaluate early bone response in two types of coated implants using the rabbit tibia model. Materials and Methods : Screw type titanium implants manufactured with a calcium metaphosphate (CMP) coating and hydroxyapatite (HA) coating were placed in the tibiae of 3 New Zealand White rabbits. The bone responses at 2 weeks after insertion were evaluated and compared by histomorphometry. Results : There was no significant difference in bone-to-implant contact between the groups (P>.05). However, some qualitative differences on histologic views were found. Conclusions : CMP-coating is suggested to be the preferred candidate for fast osseointegration over HAcoating.

With today's social and cultural personal interactions, greater leisure time and participation in sports activities, and growing traffic volume, the risk of physical trauma has increased markedly. This is a clinical and retrospective study of patients exposed to oral and maxillofacial trauma. We clinically observed 72 patients with trauma in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Kyunghee University Dental Hospital, from June 2006 through November 2007. The following data was obtained: 1. The male:female ratio of patients having experienced physical trauma was 6.2:1, with most patients in their twenties. 2. Traffic accident (37.5%) was the most common cause of trauma. 3. The highest incidence of fracture occurred to the zygomatic arch(22.1%) among mid-facial fractures and angle(37.5%), symphysis(35.4%) in mandible fractures. 4. Open reduction (88.9%) was the most frequently used form of treatment. Closed reduction was performed on the remaining 11.1% of cases. 5. Teeth and alveolar bone damage occurred in 23.6% of all cases. 6. Other injuries that were related to mid-face fracture occurred in 27.8% of all cases. 7. Post-operative complications occurred in 31.9% of cases, and the highest complication was the nerve injury.

A traumatic or amputation neuroma can develop as a result of nerve injury caused by hemorrhage, infection, ischemia, trauma, etc. A traumatic neuroma can be considered as the attempted regeneration of the amputated nerve rather than a true neoplasm. Occasionally, a traumatic neuroma will develop after oral or maxillofacial surgery. Here, we report a case of traumatic neuroma after mandibular angle reduction in a 24-year-old woman.

Objective : The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of low level lasers on bone healing and new bone formation around titanium dental implants in canine models. 18 oxidized surface treated implants and a Dens-bio laser were used. Study design : Low level lasers were irradiated with a total of 8J for 4 minutes by pulse wave type and 1 minute by continuous type. For the experimental group, a low level laser was used to irradiate the first premolar implant's insertion area at the time of insertion, a low level laser was used to irradiate the second premolar implant's insertion area daily for one week after implant insertion, and a low level laser was used to irradiate the third molar implant's insertion area daily for 2 weeks postoperatively. At the conclusion of the study, sacrificed tissue sections were made from investing tissue and observed under an optical microscope. Results : The rate of new bone formation around the implant showed no significant difference between the control group and the experimental group. New bone formation rates of the control and experimental group 2 weeks following implant placement were higher than that of immediately after implant placement and 1 week after implant placement. Conclusions : Based on these results, a low-level laser showed no statistically significant increase in bone formation following implant placement.
