Helicobacter pylori in the Oral Cavity

Helicobacter pylori(H. pylori) associated with gastritis and gastric cancer is mainly detected dental plaque and saliva in the oral cavity. Most infection is probably acquired in childhood, but the route of transmission is not clear. The oral cavity has been indicated as secondary reservoir of H. pylori, and may therefore be argued in the route of transmission and reinfection of the stomach which follows treatment of H. pylori infection. So this review aimed to discuss about H. pylori in the oral cavity. H. pylori in stomach can appear in the oral cavity by gastroesophageal reflex or vomiting, but infection of stomach and oral cavity is different. Diagnostic methods are serological method, urea breath test, PCR method, urease test, histologic method and so on. Nested PCR recommend for detection of H. pylori in saliva and dental plaque. H. pylori infection in the oral cavity appear variously and is no relation with dental diseases. The antimicrobial mouthrinse recommend in patients with periodontal diseases because of high detection rate fo H. pylori. Thus H. pylori may be considered as the normal oral microflora.

It has been known that saliva may affect the most of oral diseases. On the contrary, several systemic conditions may affect salivary flow and cause oral dryness and psychosocial stress especially may a crucial role in the etiology of hyposalivation and oral dryness. Many studies have focused on macroscopic effects of the stress on the salivary glands by autonomic respose, but on the other hand it has hardly been reported on cellular microscopic effects of the stress on the salivary glands. Therefore, this study was performed to examine clusterin, a antiapoptotic and cytoprotective protein, in the parotid glands under restraint stress condition. For this study, 10 rats were divided into 3 groups; 1) 2 rats of group I were selected as a normal control. 2) 2 rats of group II, as a experimental control were placed in the restraint cone for 2 hours 3) 6 rats of group III were placed in the restraint cone for 2 hours once a day. The rats were sacrificed immediately(group II, as a experimental control), 24, 48, and 72 hours after application of the stress and the parotid glands were excised. Western blotting and immunohistochemistry were performed. The finding were as follows: 1. In parotid glands, clusterin was mildly increased and clearly expressed in the ductal cell under restraint stress immediately after application of the stress. 2. In parotid glands, clusterin was significantly decreased and slightly stained in the ductal cell under restraint stress 24 and 48 hours after experiment. 3. In parotid glands, clusterin was prominently increased again and densely stained in the ductal cell under restraint stress 72 hours after experiment.
A Teaching Method of Improving Practice Capacity by means of Layers of Modeling

Let me introduce a teaching method to improve practice capacity in dental laboratary work. I applied theories of layers of modeling and reflection constituting cognitive apprenticeship and peer tutoring to my class. At internet uploading a file showing a practice procedure a week before the class of a course, I let students preview it. During the class I demonstrated the practice procedure in front of students. A superior student and an inferior student paired according to the previous practice grade and a feedback between a peer tutor and a peer tutee was activated. Late in the class, a student self-evaluated his own practice result and had a check of a professor. Finally he compared his own practice result with that in the file uploaded at internet and reflected. This teaching method led to improvement in students` satisfaction and efficiency of learning.

Orofacial movement disorders (OMD) are uncontrolled movement of the muscles involving the face, tongue, lip and mandible. Due to variable oral and lingual muscles affected, the patients with OMD are interfered with the appropriate performance such as chewing, swallowing and talking. In this study, there are 4 OMD cases with oral dryness that saliva flow rate is decreased or not. The symptoms are improved after oral administration of pilocarpine to 4 patients with OMD. Therefore, we suggest that objective or subjective oral dryness could be etiologic factor in OMD and pilocarpine could be regarded as medication for OMD.

To evaluate the treatment outcome of occlusal stabilizing splint in patients with TMJ osteoarthritis, the 76 subjects were chosen among the patients who presented to the Department of Oral medicine of Pusan National University Hospital, diagnosed as TMJ osteoarthritis by cone beam computed tomography, x-ray and clinical exam, and treated with occlusal stabilizing splint from 2009 to 2011. They were treated with physical therapy and medication before occlusal stabilizing splint delivery and checked monthly after occlusal stabilizing splint delivery. Subjective symptoms and clinical findings were investigated to evaluate and compare the subjects` status at the first visit, splint delivery visit and the last visit. The results were as follows; 1. Pain, noise, LOM and MCO were significantly improved between the first visit and occlusal stabilizing splint delivery visit, and between occlusal stabilizing splint delivery and the last visit. 2. In the acute group, pain and noise were significantly improved between the first visit and occlusal stabilizing splint delivery visit. Pain, LOM and MCO were significantly improved between splint delivery visit and the last visit 3. In the chronic group, pain, noise and LOM were significantly improved between occlusal stabilizing splint delivery visit and the last visit.
A Pilot Study on the Usefulness of Tomography and Bone Scan in Diagnosis of Patients with TMJ Osteoarthritis

TMJ Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease caused by overload on joint tissue, and often accompany with local tenderness on the joint, crepitus by mandibular movement, restriction of mandibular movement, and anterior openbite. In general, panoramic radiography, TMJ panoramic radiography, and transcranial radiography are conducted to diagnose osteoarthritis after clinical examination, however, these radiographic evaluations are limited in detecting minute bony changes of early pathologic lesion. The aim of this pilot study was to evaluate the limitation and usefulness of several TMJ imaging techniques, so we compare the findings from clinical examination, plain film radiographs, tomograph, and bone scan from 81 patients with temporomandibular joint disorder. The proportion of patients showing same findings in plain film radiographs, TMJ tomograph, and bone scan was high, however, it is desirable that clinician should conduct phased imaging examinations according to the clinical findings due to the possibilities of false negative findings in diagnosis of osteoarthritis.
