When restoring endodontically treated teeth is the mismatch between fiber post size and post space diameter, the resin cement layer is excessively thick in post space and voids are likely to form in it, thus predisposing to de-bonding. The method to overcome this problem is to reline the fiber post with composite resin. This individual anatomic post improves the adaptation of post to root walls and decreases the resin cement thickness. The purpose of this in vivo study was to evaluate the push-out bond strength of fiber post according to relining procedure and luting agents type used for simplicity of clinical procedure. Forty-two extracted teeth were divides into six groups.(n=7) A1: relined fiber post cemented with Luxacore/all-bons 2, A2: non-relined fiber post cemented with Luxacore/all-bond2, B1: relinind fiber post cemented with Calibra/XP-bond, B2: non-relined fiber post cemented with Calibra/XP-bond, C1: relined fiber post cemented with RelyX Unicem, C2: non-relined fiber post cemented with RelyX Unicem Push-out bond strength was affected by interaction between relining procedure and luting agent type. Relined fiber post presented higher push-out bond strength value than non-relined fiber post and statically significant differences(p<0.05) Cementation with RelyX Unicem showed significantly higher bond strength than other luting agents(p<0.05).

This prospective study was designed to compare clinical outcomes of immediately loaded implant with delayed loaded implant in partially posterior edentulous patients. For test group, 42 GS III (Osstem, Korea) implants in 17 patients were loaded within 48 hours after the placement. Control group was 27 implants in 15 patients loaded at
from the placement surgery. Before loading, primary stability was evaluated by ISQ value. Clinical symptoms, mobility, soft tissue state was evaluated at baseline, 3 months, 6 months and 12 months of loading. Marginal bone level change was also measured with periapical radiographs. Mann-Whitney test (
=0.05) and repeated measured ANOVA (
=0.05) was used for marginal bone level change between two groups. At the baseline, mean ISQ value of test group and control group was
respectively. Test group showed 95.23% of success rate and 100% of control group was successful. At 3 and 6months of loading, significantly more bone resorption was observed in test group than in control group (p<0.05). However, there was no significant difference in the bone level change at 12months of loading between two groups (p>0.05). Marginal bone level change showed no significant difference with gender and location (p>0.05). Within the limitation of this study, when primary stability was obtained, immediate loading of GS III implant at posterior region could be predictable treatment option.

This study is based on the data of adults between ages of 19~65 yrs of the National Health and Nutrition Survey 4th in year of 2009, which includes symptoms of temporomandibular disorder within gender and age. Subjects included in this study were 2,738 males and 3,427 females, total of 6,165. All statistical analysis was measured by Window SPSS 17.0K Program (SPSS Inc., Chicago, USA). Prevalence of analysis of gender, age, and symptoms of temporomandibular disorder was measured by descriptive statistics, and in order to find relationship among gender, age, and symptoms of temporomandibular disorder was based on crosstabulation analysis. As results, prevalence of TMJ sound was 10.1%, of TMJ pain was 1.5%, and of TMJ limitation was 2.0%. Among the three symptoms of temporomandibular disorder, subjects who have at least one symptom was 1.2%. Prevalence of TMJ sound, of TMJ pain, and of TMJ limitation in female were 10.7%, 1.8% and 2.2%, respectively, which were greater than in male 9.3%, 1.2% and 1.6% respectively but it was stastically insignificant (p>0.05). Prevalence of TMJ sound, of TMJ pain, and of TMJ limitation in ages between 19~24 yrs were 18.7%, 3.4% and 4.2% respectively, which were higher than any other ages (p<0.05). Also prevalence of having at least one symptom of temporomandibular disorder, at least two, and three all were higher in females but stastically insignificant (p>0.05). On the other hand, prevalence of having at least one symptom of temporomandibular disorder, at least two, and three all were greater in age below 45 yrs and was stastically significant (p<0.05).

Kim, Yong-Gun ;
Journal of Dental Rehabilitation and Applied Science, volume 27, issue 3, 2011, Pages 285~292
The purpose of thise study was to measure the thickness of the sinus lateral wall using computed tomography (CT), and to find the most suitable vertical position for lateral window opening prior to sinus elevation. Thirty patients requiring sinus elevation had CT images taken with Philips Brilliance iCT. The thickness of the sinus lateral wall was measured according to its vertical position against the sinus inferior border, and its mean was calculated through three repeated measurements. When measured 2 mm above the sinus inferior border (SIB+2), the thickness of the sinus lateral wall was observed to be more than 2 mm. When measured 3 mm above the sinus inferior border (SIB +3), the sinus lateral wall was less than 2 mm in thickness. It is recommended that the lateral wall window be made 3 mm above the sinus inferior border when performing sinus elevation using the lateral approach.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the displacement and pattern of stress distribution on periodontal ligaments of maxillary first and second molar, and on orthodontic mini-implant (OMI) surface, according to three different insertion angles to the bone surface of OMI using Dragon helix appliance, which is a newly introduced scissors-bite correcting appliance. OMI were placed between second premolar and first molar with three different insertion angles (45, 60, 90 degrees). Displacement and maximum stress distribution area (MSDA) were analyzed by finite element analysis. When the insertion angle to the alveolar bone surface was 90 degrees, maxillary first and second molar both exhibited MSDA at the palatal root apex. Maxillary first molar did not show any significant displacement, while the second molar exhibited intrusive and palatal displacement. On the OMI, as the insertion angle decreased, the MSDA shifted towards the tip, and the amount of displacement had increased. When the OMI was inserted at a 90 degree angle, anchor loss was minimized and scissors-bite correcting effect was maximized.

Cracked teeth are a common problem with incomplete fracture that typically shows pain on biting and temperature stimuli. The most common cause of crack is known to be the masticatory accident. Predisposing factors were aging, old restoration, and iatrogenic stress concentration, etc. Accurate diagnosis is needed for detecting the extent of crack and pulp vitality. There are many diagnostic tools like bite test, direct observation with transillumination, dye penetration, and radiographs. Immediate treatment for pain relief and occlusal adjustment would be needed. Composite resin and bonded amalgam showed favorable prognosis. Moreover, cusp protection is reliable permanent treatment for cracked teeth. The purpose of this article is to review the literature about the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment for cracked teeth.

Journal of Dental Rehabilitation and Applied Science, volume 27, issue 3, 2011, Pages 317~326
The mental foramen and anterior loop of the mandibular canal are important landmarks for mandibular surgical procedures. The purpose of this study was to analyze the shape and position of the mental foramen and anterior loop of the mandibular canal on the computed tomography (CT) images, and apply the results clinically. CT images of 96 patients (33 male, 36 female, age range 17~43 years, mean
years) were enrolled. The horizontal and vertical position of the mental foramen, as well as the distance from the root apices were measured. The distance of the anterior loop of the mandibular canal to the root apices, and the buccal angle were measured. The mental foramen was found mostly below the second premolar observed in 81 cases (46.0%), between the first and second premolars in 67 cases (38.0%), and between the second premolar and first molar in 19 cases (10.2%). The mean distance between the mental foramen and the lower border of the mandible was
mm, the mean distance between the mental foramen and root apex was
mm. The mean distance of the anterior loop of the mandibular canal was
mm. The buccal angle measured at
. The distance between the root apex and mental foramen measured as
mm on panoramic radiography, and
mm on CT. The mean distance between the mental foramen and mandibular canal was
mm. When performing surgical procedures such as installing dental implants, it is important to minimize surgical trauma, especially the risk of damage to the mental nerve. To optimize the surgical outcome, a careful assessment of the shape and position of the mental foramen and the anterior loop of the mandibular canal must be made. CT images are useful for finding such anatomic structures.

Reported causes of mandibular nerve injury in relation to neuropathic pain in dentistry include extraction, dental implant surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, periodontal treatment, and root-canal therapy. This study analyzed the characteristics of pharmacologic management of neuropathy after root-canal therapy. 32 patients who complain of abnormal sensation or pain after root-canal therapy and were referred to Department of Oral Medicine and the Temporomandibular Joint and Orofacial Pain Clinic at the Dental Hospital of Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea from 2004 to 2011 enrolled in this analysis and improvement of symptom was evaluated after pharmacologic management. Thirty-two patients who had hypoesthesia or dysesthesia at the initial visit were analyzed(9 men, 23 women; mean age: 44 years). The causes of neuropathy were local anesthesia(46.9%), chemical trauma from the sealant in root-canal(25%), endodontic surgery(15.6%), and unknown causes(12.5%). Medications such as steroids, anticonvulsants, antidepressants, and analgesics were took for improvement of symptoms and titrated for a variety of period from 1 week to 11 months. It was found that neuropathy of the inferior alveolar nerve and the lingual nerve was in 25 and 7 patients. The improvement of neurosensory disturbance and no improvement after pharmacotherapy was in 21(66%) and 11(34%) patients respectively. The hypoesthesia and dysesthesia was improved 67% and 65% respectively. These results suggest that symptomatic improvement by pharmacologic management can be possible in patients with neuropathy after root-canal therapy. But improvement of symptoms was influenced by the causes and degree of nerve injury, the periods of pharmacotherapy, and the choice of treatment methods. So, further investigation is needed by quantitative measurement of more variables in more individuals.

Congenital or traumatic loss on the oral and maxillary area or the loss of jaws due to the surgical excision of a tumor causes functional problems, such as masticatory and swallowing disorders, phonetic problems and psychological disorders in patients. In most cases, a prosthetic restoration is needed to resolve these problems and restore the damaged tissue and function. When loss occurs on the maxilla, foods and liquids leak into the nasal cavity, and a nasal sound can be heard due to air leakage into the removed area. In these cases, the palatal obturator can be used to improve the esthetic and functional aspects because it restores the removed area of the maxilla and closes the opened route between the oral cavity and maxillary sinus or nasal cavity. In this case report, a palatal obturator was applied to patients who had a hemimaxillectomy due to the occurrence of squamous cell carcinoma on the right maxillary area. Therefore, fundamental functions, such as phonetic and swallowing functions were restored, and the esthetic aspects of the facial profile were improved.
