Objectives : This study investigated the hypothesis that the dentin bond strength of self-etching adhesives (SEAs) may be improved by applying a coat of hydrophobic, neutral adhesive resin in addition to SEA. Method and Materials : The bond strengths of two SEAs - Experimental SEA (EX) and Adper Prompt (AP) - were measured with three bonding protocols. The D/E resin of All-Bond 2 was applied as the hydrophobic, neutral adhesive. Clearfil SE Bond (SE, self-etching primer system) and All-Bond 2 (AB, total etching system) were used as references. The following protocols were used: (1) EX1 (EX 1 coat); (2) EX2 (EX 2 coats); (3) EX+ (EX 1 coat + D/E resin); (4) AP1 (AP 1 coat); (5) AP2 (AP 2 coats); (6) AP+ (AP 1 coat + D/E resin); (7) SE (SE primer + SE bond); (8) SE+ (SE primer + D/E resin); (9) AB (etching + AB primer + D/E resin). Filtek Z250 composite resin was built up and the microtensile bond strength (MTBS) values of the specimens were compared. The fractured surfaces were observed using SEM. Results : When SEA was used as self-etching primer and hydrophobic, neutral adhesive was applied as well, MTBS was significantly higher than that when either one coat or two coats of SEA only were used (p < 0.05). Conclusion : The hydrophobic, neutral adhesive improved the integrity of the bonded interface obtained with SEA.

Purpose : To determine whether peri-implant crestal bone loss could be affected by systemic disease, primary ISQ value, implantation method (submerged vs. non-submerged), surface treatment, and bone density Materials and methods : Patients who underwent fixture installation from June 24, 2005 to October 23, 2008 at Seoul National University Bundang Hospital were evaluated. A total of 157 patients (male: 52, female: 85) had 346 fixtures installed. Among them, 49 patients had periapical radiographs taken 1 year after prostheses were first set. A total of 97 fixtures were implanted. In particular, 30 fixtures were installed in patients with systemic diseases such as diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and liver disease. The immediate stability of implants was measured with
. Implant surface treatment was classified into two groups (RBM, Cellnest (Anodized)), and bone density, into four groups (D1~D4). The bone resorption on the mesial and distal areas of fixtures was measured with periapical radiographs using the paralleling technique, and the mean value was calculated. The length determination program in IMPAX (AGFA, Belgium) was used. Results : At least 332 out of 346 (96%) installed GS II implants were successfully osseointegrated 1 year after prostheses were first set. The mean value of the bone resorption of the installed GS II implants was 0.44mm. The minimum value was 0mm, and the maximum value, 2.85mm. There was a statistically significant difference between the implantation methods (submerged, non-submerged) with regard to the amount of alveolar bone loss 1 year after prostheses were first set (p<0.05). Non-submerged implants showed less crestal bone loss. Note, however, that other variables had no correlation with crestal bone loss (p>0.05). Conclusion : There was a statistically significant difference between the 1-stage method and 2-stage method with regard to the amount of alveolar bone loss 1 year after prostheses were first set. Systemic disease, primary ISQ value, surface treatment, and bone density were not associated with alveolar bone loss. Other variables were assumed to have a correlation with alveolar bone loss.

Introduction : The purposes of this study were to analyze the differences between the anterior and posterior overjets using bracket slot points, and compare two methods of overjet calculation according to different reference points using clinical bracket points on three-dimensional digital models. Methods : A total of 35 normal occlusion models were scanned using a three-dimensional scanner (Orapix
, Orapix Co., Ltd, Seoul, Korea) and then, virtual brackets (0.022" Slot MBT preadjusted brackets, 3 M Co.CA. USA) were placed on the digital models using virtual setup program (3Txer
ver. 1.9.6, Orapix co., Ltd). Archwire-like curves were designed to analyze labial and buccal overjet. Results : There were no statistically significance differences between the right and left overjet and between genders. The average overjet was found to be
at the central incisor area,
at the second premolar and
at the first molar. Conclusion : It is recommended that overjet of individualized upper and lower arch to be 2.0mm at the anterior and posterior teeth.

Two component orthodontic C-implants have been introduced as intermaxillary fixation (IMF) screws in cases of periodontal problems with bone loss, severely damaged teeth, or short roots. This retrospective research sought to investigate the complications and risk factors associated with the failure of two-part C-implants for IMF cases and to show the possible indications compared to one-component mini-implants. The study sample consisted of 46 randomly selected patients who had a total of 203 implants. Pearson chi-square tests of independence were used to test for associations among categorical variables. At least 19 of the total 203 implants failed (9.3%). There was no significant difference in implant failure due to gender, oral hygiene, and placement, although a significant difference due to soft tissue characteristics and root contact was observed. The two-component design of the mini-implant is reliable for difficult IMF cases. Note, however, that the factors influencing implant failure were found to be age, root damage, and condition of soft tissues.

The survival rate of the OSSTEM GS II Implant 1 year after serving the prosthetic function in 2 domestic and foreign medical institutes was 97.57%; the success rate was 95.7%, and the average alveolar bone resorption was 0.24mm(n=389). In particular, the alveolar bone resorption occurred differently according to the placement location as well as whether or not the patient underwent bone grafting operation, but the implant s length and diameter did not have significant impact on alveolar bone resorption.

Objective : This study sought to investigate the clinical survival rate of two implants with different surfaces: resorbable blasting media (RBM)-treated and calcium metaphosphate (CMP)-coated implant. Study design : SSII non-submerged implants (Osstem, Seoul, Korea) were placed in a total of 48 patients with mean age of 38.8. At least 31 patients in the experimental group had a CMP-coated implant, and 1 patient in the control group received a, RBM surface implant. The evaluation period was between April 2006 and December 2007. Radiographs, periotest, clinical periodontal examination, and prosthetic adjustment and occlusion were used. Results : The survival rate of the experimental and control groups after 1 year was 97.2% and 100%, respectively. The Wald confidence interval reported for the experimental group was not inferior to the control group. Conclusion : No significant differences were found between the RBM and CMP groups. The observed data suggest that CMP-coated methods can provide favorable clinical results for the functioning and healing of dental implants.

Objectives : The purpose of this study was to evaluate the significance of antibiotics in reducing postoperative infection rates and other complications following third molar surgery. Patients and methods : Two groups of patients underwent surgical extraction of third molars. The antibiotics group, n=21, received a third generation cephalosporin antibiotic for 5 days, starting from the day of surgery. The non-antibiotics group, n=26, didn't receive any antibiotics and only received analgesics to control postoperative pain. Body temperature and hematologic findings including WBC, neutrophils, lymphocytes and monocytes counts were compared between the two groups at three intervals, preoperatively, 24 hours and 7-10 days postoperatively. Pain and swelling during the follow up period were also recorded in both groups and compared in the second part of the study. Results : In the first part of the study, comparison of body temperature, CBC components (except WBCs) showed no significant difference between the two groups during the follow up period. All parameters were within the normal range at all intervals, which indicated absence of infection. In the second part, 38% of patients in the antibiotic group, compared to 54% of the non-antibiotics group, had one or more complications during the follow up period. However, three patients from the antibiotic group compared to one from the nonantibiotics group reported having a swelling of some degree. Conclusion : Based on our objective parameters (body temperature and CBC components), both groups showed no signs of infection during the follow up period. However, the results related to pain and swelling were less conclusive, probably due to small number of patients included in the study. Accordingly, we are unable to provide definite recommendations on antibiotics use in third molar surgery.
