The purpose of this study was to compare the strain on the alveolar ridge in the centric, eccentric and protrusive position according to the occlusal scheme (bilateral balanced occlusion with 33 degree anatomical teeth, group B; monoplane occlusion with non-anatomical teeth, group M; lingualized occlusion with 33 degree anatomical teeth and non-anatomical teeth, group L; of complete dentures. Experimental dentures were set bilateral balanced occlusion, lingualized occlusion and monoplane occlusion. They are analysed through T-Scan II(Tekscan, Boston, U.S.A) and 1.5mm thick layer was removed from the denture-supporting surface of resin model and then replaced with silicone to simulate resilient edentulous ridge mucosa. A
linear strain gauge is attached to the
molar area. The strain values are recorded according to the occlusal scheme in the centric, eccentric and protrusive position after uniformly applying 50 N and 150 N force through a Universal Testing Machine(instron
5567, Bluehill 2.0 software ,U.S.A.) with the models mounted in the articulator. When performing centric and protrusive occlusion, the three groups of occlusal scheme were compared in the anterior region and in the posterior region. The strains of each group were also compared in the working side and in the non-working side during eccentric excursion. It was observed that the strain in the bilateral balanced occlusion showed a higher value than the lingualized occlusion and monoplane occlusion in every position except the non-working side. However, during the eccentric movement the strain value in the non-working side showed the lowest value in the bilaterally balanced occlusion. The strain change amount from the working side or centric occlusion to non-working side and also the strain variation rate within the non-working side showed the highest value in bilateral balanced occlusion.

The convergence angle of a prepared tooth is a very important factor in the retention and resistance of a crown restoration. But various intraoral environments and clinician's techniques make it difficult to obtain the ideal inclination. Therefore, in this study, clinical convergence angle of a prepared tooth was investigated. The data was collected from the patient models of prosthodontic residents and the patient models of general practitioners. The images of mesiodistal and buccolingual surfaces were taken with a digital camera to evaluate the convergence angle on 'ImageJ' program. The images were classified according to the criteria (1. Clinician group, 2. Position in the dental arch, 3. The purpose of abutment preparation)and then analyzed. The mean convergence angle of a prepared tooth for Korean clinicians was
). 1. It was significant in the convergence angle between the general practitioner group and the prosthodontic resident group(p<0.05). 2. It was significant between the mesiodistal and buccolingual surface in the the prosthodontic resident group(p<0.05). 3. For the general practitioner group, it was significant when anteriors and premolars were compared with molars(p<0.05). For the prosthodontic resident group, it was significant when anteriors and premolars were compared with molars (p<0.05). 4. When divided into upper and lower arches, for the general practitioner group, it showed significant difference in the buccolingual aspect(p<0.05). Also in the prosthodontic resident group, it showed significant difference in the buccolingual aspect(p<0.05). 5. Dividing left and right sides of the arches, there was no significant difference in the general practitioner group and the prosthodontic resident group(p>0.05). 6. In the general practitioner group, it was significant in the mesiodistal axial convergence angle of single crown abutment and 3 unit bridge abutment(p<0.05). In the prosthodontic resident group, it was significant in the mesiodistal and overall axial convergence angle of single crown abutment and 3 unit bridge abutment(p<0.05). Clinical convergence angle of prepared tooth in Korea was included in agreement with other studies investigating convergence angle that ranged from 10 to 22 degrees, achieved in clinical practice.

Maxillectomy is a treatment option for maxillary cancer, which leaves the patient with a palatal defect. It may cause problems with facial deformation, swallowing, mastication, and speech. These functional problems and changes in appearance may result in psychological problems. To control these deficits after maxillectomy, surgical reconstruction or prosthodontic treatment can be chosen as a treatment option. Obturator prosthesis has been used as a preferred method of rehabilitation for most maxillectomy patients. This case is a patient who was classified Aramany classification II hemi-maxillectomy patient with residual teeth from #11-25, whose teeth had substantial labioversion and clinically lengthened from alveolar bone involution, thus making it hard to select proper framework design and resist to the rotational dislodging force of the obturator. Therefore we selected swing-lock attachment design to remain pre-existing crown and bridges and obtain retention and stability of obturator. The swing-lock RPD is economical than the conventional RPD because we can remain pre-existing crown and bridges. And residual teeth which have mobility and poor prognosis can be successfully retained through properly designed swing-lock RPD as it is functioning as a removable splint on the teeth.

To assess the stress distribution of implant prosthesis induced by intentional misfit using photoelastic model. Stress was measured at the surrounding bone after applying vertical load to the implant. Three implants were placed in each of three photoelastic resin blocks. No misfits were used for the control group, while for the experimental group
misfit after cutting the crown was used. The photoelastic stress analysis was performed. In control group, stress concentration was not shown when the load was not applied, whereas stress concentration was shown only in the loaded part even when load was applied and the stress was distributed in anterior-posterior direction when applying a load in the middle. When intentional misfits were given, stress around the fixture was incurred when tightening the screw even if load was not applied. If the load was applied, stress was concentrated around the implants including areas where the load was applied. In particular, the prosthesis made of UCLA showed more stress concentration as compared with a conical abutment. In the UCLA case, concentration was shown from the apex following through the axis to the cervical area. Prosthesis with misfit makes the stress concentrated though the load was not applied and it induces even more severe stress concentration when the load was applied. This founding demonstrates the importance of the correct prosthesis production.

An undisturbed healing process without micromotion at the implant-bone interface is essential for achievement of osseointegration of dental implant. Therefore, initial stability was advocated as prerequisite for successful clinical outcome. Adequate bone quality and quantity were important to achieve initial stability and to prevent early failures. However there were few published data available regarding the effect of design change in implant geometry on initial stability of the implants. The purpose of the current study was to assess the initial stability of various designs of implants when placed into artificial bone materials of varying qualities and shapes of insertion holes. Within the scope of this study, the following results were drawn. Bone quality was major importance to achieve initial stability. Initial stability was higher on GS II which had additional design feature of double thread. With a tapered design of implant such as GS III showed a higher initial stability than straight one. An insertion hole with the similar shape of implant would lead to reduce a compression force on cortical bone and enhance a bone anchorage on cancellous bone.

Recently, dental implants extensively inserted on edentulous area show highly clinical success rate. However, clinicians cannot exclude the possibility of failure and it often unexpectively occures. Many possible factors associated with failure of dental implants have been reported but controversy exists over the extent to them. In this study, we collected 212 patients who had been inserted 358 dental implants on mandibular premolar and molar area from 2005 to 2006. The survival rate of fixtures was recorded according to age of patients, implantation site, implant system, diameter and length of fixtures. Multi-variable analysis using SPSS chi-square test was operated to verify relation of each factors and survival rates. Accumulative survival rate was 98.3% for 3 years. Only diameter of fixtures was related to the implant survival rate. This may be thought that wider fixtures had been chosen to rescue implants or used in sites of poor bone quality. Further continuous study will be needed for direct guidance associated with survival rate of implants.

Botulinum toxin type A(BTX-A) has been applied successfully to treat masseteric hypertrophy. However it can cause muscle weakness. This study was designed to measure the change in maximum bite force(MBF) after BTX-A injection into human masseter muscle and to evaluate the influence of a booster(repeated) injection. Thirty volunteers completed 18-week follow-up and MBF was measured. At 18 weeks after the first injection, a booster injection was given to 14 patients and they were followed up until 18 weeks from the booster injection. The mean MBF was approximately 20% lower at 2 weeks than before the injection, and it recovered gradually after 4 weeks to return to the preinjection level at 12 weeks. The MBF differed significantly between before the injection and at 2, 4, and 8 weeks after the injection(p<0.05). In booster injection group(n=14),the MBF decreased markedly at 6 weeks(p<0.05),and it recovered gradually in 12 weeks. The MBF was significantly reduced after booster injection of BTX-A into the human masseter muscle. The degree of discomfort experienced by the subjects had little effect on normal mastication.

Skeletodental asymmetries are common and asymmetric orthodontic treatments are very difficult to correct successfully. The cause of asymmetries can be the skeletal asymmetry, dental, or functional, or combinations of these causes. Skeletodental asymmetries can be the result of congenital factors, such as hemifacial microsomia and environmental factors, such as trauma. Optimal treatment outcome of the severe facial asymmetry requires the orthognathic surgery. Mild asymmetry problem can be treated by only orthodontic treatment. The orthodontic treatment of asymmetry is usually difficult. Facial asymmetry orthodontic treatment are primarily based on proper diagnosis and careful treatment planning. Side effects of asymmetric elastic to treat midline discrepancies are canted occlusal plane, tipped incisors and unesthetic results. In the management of dental arch asymmetries, the clinician should select the appropriate force system and the appliance design necessary to address the asymmetry while minimizing undesirable side effects. This report presents treatment strategies for the treatment of skeletodental asymmetry. In this case report, the clinical case with midline discrepancies treated by optimal mechanics is described. Through diagnosis and strategic treatment mechanics can obtain proper midline correction with minimal side effects.
