Effectiveness of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder Follow-Up Using Bone Scans
Ku, Jeong-Kui ; Kim, Young-Kyun ; Yun, Pil-Young ;
Journal of Korean Dental Science, volume 8, issue 1, 2015, Pages 1~9
DOI : 10.5856/JKDS.2015.8.1.1
Purpose: To evaluate the effectiveness of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder follow-up and determine the factors that affect the TMJ bone scan hot spot numerical value (bone scan value), and to compare this value to the diagnosis of patients with temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD), their treatment options, and the resolution of their symptoms. Materials and Methods: A retrospective cohort study was performed on 24 patients (four males, 20 females) who received TMD treatment in the Section of Dentistry, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital (Seongnam, Korea) from 2007 to 2014. An analysis of the significance test and correlation between TMD diagnosis, treatment options, a baseline the Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (RDC/TMD) questionnaire, treatment before and after the clinical examination and subjective progress, and TMJ bone scan value change were completed by using SPSS version 12.0. Result: Although only 14 patients had bony factors that caused TMD, the average pre-treatment bone scan value of the all patients was
, which is higher than the finding for osteoarthritis (3.88), and reduced post-treatment bone scan value was found to be without a statistically significant difference (P=0.056). After the treatments, clinical symptoms in 18 patients disappeared, and six patients did not require additional treatment, although they still displayed subjective symptoms. It was observed that the higher the pre-treatment bone scan value, nonspecific physical symptoms, chronic pain index, characteristic pain intensity, disability score, were, the lower the post-treatment bone scan value was. And this reduced post-treatment bone scan value tendency was not shown with the pre-treatment depression index, but there was not a statistical difference. Conclusion: The post-treatment TMJ bone scan value tended to be insignificantly reduced in the 24 patients whose clinical symptoms were improved (P=0.056). Moreover, the TMJ bone scan value showed no relation to the TMD type or its related symptoms.

Purpose: The aim of the present study is to assess the importance of proper treatment timing for dental emergency patients by characterizing current patient care in the emergency room. Materials and Methods: A retrospective chart review of 3,211 patients who visited the Chosun University Hospital's dental emergency department (Gwangju, Korea) was conducted from January 1, 2011 to May 31, 2014. Information regarding age, gender, onset date, main causes, and diagnoses were collected and analyzed. The main causes were divided into six categories: assault, household/play, sports, traffic, work, and others. Result: Emergency visits were more common for men (69%), and the ratio of males to females was 2.2:1 On average, the major cause was household/play (49.8%), followed by others (18.9%), traffic (16.6%), assault (9.1%), sports (2.9%), and work (2.6%). The most frequent diagnosis on average was dental trauma with 82.4%, followed by infection (10.7%), others (4.7%), and bleeding (2.2%). Conclusion: The main reasons for visits to the dental emergency department are dental trauma, dental infection, bleeding, and others. The most frequent reason for dental emergency patients to visit the emergency department was dental trauma (82.4%).

Kye, Min-Kyoung ; Choi, Young-Yuhn ; Lee, Kee-Joon ;
Journal of Korean Dental Science, volume 8, issue 1, 2015, Pages 16~27
DOI : 10.5856/JKDS.2015.8.1.16
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the correlation between the clinical symptoms of temporomandibular disorder and findings in the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Materials and Methods: Clinical data and MRI images were collected from a total of 240 German patients. Clinical symptoms were briefed as joint clicking, crepitus and pain. MRI findings were further defined according to the condyle position, condyle degeneration, disc positon, disc degeneration and the presence of osteophyte/sclerosis/synovitis. Hypermobility was separately recorded. Correlation analysis between parameters was performed. Result: Joint clicking had a positive correlation with unilateral disc degeneration, osteophyte, sclerosis and synovitis. Crepitus had a significant correlation with bilateral osteophyte. Pain was not correlated with any MRI findings except hypermobility. Conclusion: Selective correlations between the MRI findings and clinical symptoms were elucidated. The results of this study imply that condyle-disc deformities could be advanced without pain, and that joint clicking and crepitus could be clinical symptoms of condyle-disc degeneration.
Influence of Crown Margin Design on the Stress Distribution in Maxillary Canine Restored by All-Ceramic Crown: A Finite Element Analysis
Ozer, Zafer ; Kurtoglu, Cem ; Mamedov, Amirullah M. ; Ozbay, Ekmel ;
Journal of Korean Dental Science, volume 8, issue 1, 2015, Pages 28~35
DOI : 10.5856/JKDS.2015.8.1.28
Purpose: To investigate the influence of crown margin design on the stress distribution and to localize critical sites in maxillary canine under functional loading by using three dimensional finite element analysis. Materials and Methods: The bite force of 100 N, 150 N, and 200 N was applied with an angulation of
to the longitudinal axis of tooth. Six models were restored with IPS e.max (Ivoclar Vivadent, Schaan, Liechtenstein) with a different margin design. With lingual ledge and various thicknesses, three different core ceramics were designed in each model. Result: In the core ceramic, the maximum tensile stresses were found at the labiocervical region. In the veneering ceramic the maximum tensile stresses were found at the area where the force was applied in all models. Conclusion: Shoulder and chamfer margin types are acceptable for all-ceramic rehabilitations. A ledge on the core ceramic at cervical region may affect the strength of all-ceramic crowns.

Fibrous dysplasia is a bone disorder characterized by progressive replacement of normal bone by fibrous bone tissue. Common involving sites of fibrous dysplasia are the skeletal system including long bones, ribs, craniofacial bones and the pelvis. If maxilla were affected by fibrous dysplasia, antrum is almost always involved. And fibrous dyplasia in maxillary sinus were followed the shape of bone. In our case, the lesion involves antrum but, its shape was different from typical fibrous dysplasia pattern of maxillary sinus. Therefore we report a case of monostotic pediculated fibrous dysplasia in the maxillary sinus with a review of literature.
Fabricating a Ceramic-Pressed-to-Metal Restoration with Computer-Aided Design, Computer-Aided Manufacturing and Selective Laser Sintering: A Case Report

Even though a conventional metal ceramic restoration is widely in use, its laboratory procedure is still technique-sensitive, complex, and time-consuming. A ceramic-pressed-to-metal restoration (PTM) can be a reliable alternative. However, simplified laboratory procedure for a PTM is still necessary. The article is to propose a technique that reduces time and effort to fabricate a PTM with the aid of computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacturing and selective laser sintering technologies.
