The Use of Lingual-Locking Screws or The Multi-Unit Abutments as Prosthetic Solutions to Mal-Aligned Placed Implants Introduction

Tony Daher DDS, MSEd, FACP, FICD. Prosthodontist Co-director of GDIA. Diplomate American Board of Prosthodontics Private Practice limited to Prosthodontics & Implant Dentistry, La Verne, California, USA

Successful implant restoration is depending on an adequate surgical and prosthetic protocol. The dental implant should be placed in an optimum position according to the predetermined prosthetic restoration. A Screw-Retained Implant
Crown (SRIC) is mostly desirable when possible. 4 When an implant is not adequately placed, and the access hole does not end up in the middle of the occlusal surface or to the lingual of the incisal edge, an implant cement-retained restoration is commonly indicated. Residual excess cement after placement of single or fixed partial dentures has been associated with clinical and radiographic signs of peri-implant disease in 81% of the cases 4. (Figure 2) Fig. 1

During the cementation of such restorations, it was demonstrated that a risk of leaving excess cement behind in the implant gingival cuff exists 4. In the last few years an increase in Peri-Implantitis has been attributed, in part, to the excess cement left around the implant collar and threads, leading in many cases to bone loss and even the complete failure of the implant treatment. 1,2,3,4,5 (Fig. 1) This case report article will describe the use of lingual-locking screws and the straight and angulated multi-unit (MU) or Octa-type abutments as an alternative to cement-retained implant restorations.

The Use of Lingual-Locking Screws or The Multi-Unit Abutments as Prosthetic Solutions

The lingual-locking screws for implant-retained restorations The advantage of implant-borne screw-retained prostheses is the ability to retrieve it. The removal of cement-retained implant crowns has often proven difficult due to a multitude of variables, including locating the access and stripped screws and save-guarding the underlying custom abutment. To facilitate its removal, Daher et al. 6 described a technique where photos of the abutment are made before cementing the crown over. These photos (Figure 2) are kept in patient chart to help locate the access hole and retrieve the restoration when it is needed 6. A better way that it is available to the practicing dentist is the use of a vertically or horizontally secondary screw to lock the implant crown superstructure to the implant abutment. The concept of a secondary locking horizontal screw 8 or the cross-pin 7 at the crown level allows latitude in fixture position, good aesthetics, and especially retrievability. (Figure 2) Fig. 2


3. It is imperative to establish the final shape of the prosthesis early for proper abutment design and contour. This can be established by providing a full contoured wax patterns of the final restoration on a cast or digitally on a computer. 4. A medical silicone or just a light viscosity polyvinyl siloxane is used to seal the space between the crown and the abutment during placement procedure. This will prevent any seepage of food in that space. Then the lingual screw(s) will secure the prosthesis to the abutment(s). Fig. 3


Figure 2A, 2B: Photos of the abutment are made before cementing the crown over. These photos are kept in patient chart to help locate the access hole and retrieve the restoration when it is needed at a later time.

The technique of lingual set screw is well described at The cross-pin technique is described in the article of Gervais MJ et al. 7 The general principles in using either technique, are as follow:

This interim FPD is the blueprint of the final fixed implant restoration after being modified and accepted by the patient.

1. These screws are smaller than the abutment screws and not able to withstand occlusal forces without the abutment protection. Designing the abutment in a manner to provide optimum resistance and retention form is a must. This provides protection to the lingual screws against destructive shearing forces. 2. The lab technician must provide a lingual location with an easy clinical access for the placement of the lingual screw. For example, the cingulum area of the anterior teeth, the lingual surfaces of the maxillary and mandibular premolars and maxillary molars and mesio-lingual angle of the mandibular molars due to the position of the tongue.

The Use of Lingual-Locking Screws or The Multi-Unit Abutments as Prosthetic Solutions

The use of multi-unit (MU) or Octa-type abutments to overcome mis-aligned implants When multiple implants are misaligned in the posterior quadrants (Figures 5, 6) or during restoration of a complete arch (Figure 6), multi-unit (MU) abutments, straight or angulated could be used to overcome the misalignment by moving the implant internal connection to a taper external connection and render the restoration screw-retained. By using such abutments, the occlusal stress will be moved from the implant screw to the MU abutment small screw.

Fig. 6



In case of the prosthesis small screw breaks, it is easily replaced and even the MU abutment can be removed and replaced with a similar size. The same prosthesis is placed back over. These abutments can be either straight or angulated types are used especially for 4-implant screw-retained prosthesis concept. (Figure 6)

Final Impression in Complete Dentures Abstract

Prof. Jaouadi Jamila Departement director of

The history of complete denture impression procedures have been influenced largely by the development of impression materials from which new techniques arose. Selection of material is left to the decision of the dentist, who makes choices based on personal preferences and experience. The success of every complete denture relies on the fulfilment of the three basic properties of retention, stability, and support.

There was no support for the frequent textbook statement that the two-step procedure is necessary and superior to the one-step method. While some special clinical situations may benefit from other combinations of materials and techniques.

From an anatomical viewpoint, tooth loss comes to alveolar ridge resorption of the upper and lower jaw which are manifested in a reduction of the attached gingival surface and an increase of displaceable mucosal surface.

Regarding function, it affects occlusion and speech ability in patients, as well as changes of their appearance, which may result in psychosocial decompensation. 4 Complete dentures are primarily mechanical devices but since they function in the oral cavity, they must be fashioned so that they are in harmony with the normal neuromuscular function. The history of complete denture impression procedures has been influenced

largely by the development of impression materials from which new techniques and ideas arose. 5 Stability of complete lower dentures has challenged dentists and patients alike. Making accurate final impression for complete dentures is a multistage process that involves a preliminary impression, a customized final impression tray and a final border impression. It is important to thoroughly examine the patient’s mouth and select the most appropriate impression technique. 7 The process of shaping impression material along the borders of an impression tray by manipulating the soft tissues to duplicate the contour and size of the vestibules is known as border molding. 5 December 2018

The 2 techniques of border molding documented in published reports are the sectional and the single-step techniques. The sectional technique is routinely taught in dental schools in the United States and is followed by a large number of general dental practitioners, and commonly used. 6 Clinicians make final impressions of complete dentures (CD) using different techniques and materials. Applying the correct impression technique and material, based on an individual’s oral condition, improves the quality of the prosthesis, which may improve quality of life.

Final Impression in Complete Dentures


Dental practitioners can make the impression in a single stage (abbreviated impression) or in two stages (preliminary impression made for the purposes of diagnosis, or for the construction of a tray, followed by final impression). The techniques can be grouped into mucostatic, mucocompressive, selective pressure, functional, and neutral zone impression techniques. Using this or that technique depends on the operator, the mouth conditions and / or time we dispose. The objective of this paper was to provide procedures of final impressions in complete dentures, using standardized techniques and materials. 4

Impression materials The literature reports about many different techniques of anatomical and functional impressions, as well as about different types of impression materials – from dental stones, zinc oxide eugenol pastes and thermoplastic materials to reversible hydrocolloids and elastomers. The analysis of the type of materials that are most often used for impression taking in the fabrication of complete dentures and overdentures indicates that reversible hydrocolloids and alginates are commonly used for taking the first or anatomical impression; thermoplastic materials of the latest generation in the shape of sticks are used for the formation of functional margins; aluminum wax is used for relining of the vibrating line and zinc oxide eugenol pastes and several types of elastomers, condensation silicones vinyl polysiloxane and polyethers are used for taking functional, fixation impression. 3


Dental News

The impression stage of fabricating complete dentures aims to customize the denture bases to the optimal denture-supporting area and to ensure that the border form of the prostheses provides a peripheral seal. 2 As the residual ridges resorb, the tissues become unsupported and displaceable; the use of conventional impression techniques will result in a distorted impression. Therefore, the impression technique needs to be modified. Secondary impression can be made by using low fusing impression compound (green stick) ; green stick compound is kneaded to a homogenous mass and is loaded on the special tray and border movements are implemented. Final impression is made either using zinc oxide eugenol or with a medium viscosity elastomer.

Functional impression is made after static and dynamic checking of fit of the custom tray and its possible corrections. Firstly, 0.5-1 mm thick spacers made from a thermoplastic material or light curing acrylic resin are placed in the middle of the alveolar ridge of both the anterior and posterior area. During the fabrication of spacers it is important to avoid areas of displaceable mucosa, in order to avoid rocking of the prosthesis. 3 The next step is taking impression of functional margins with a thermoplastic material, FIG II by the patient performing active, and the operator passive functional movements, to record the frenulum and plica insertion. After the impression, the custom tray should have a suction effect. It may be done in closed mouth functional impression technique. In this technique, denture bases with occlusal rim are fabricated on primary cast. Jaw relations are registered (Fig. 3) to record appropriate horizontal and vertical dimensions. 1

Prosthodontics Final Impression in Complete Dentures

Discussion The final impression techniques and materials used for complete dentures date back to 1900s . They make the impression using an open-mouth or closed-mouth approach, in one or two steps (Boucher 1951). In the single-step procedure, border moulding and recording the final impression are performed simultaneously, using the same material, either a resinous wax, or a monophase elastomer. 1 The two-step final-impression technique begins with border moulding, followed by a final-impression procedure (Chaffee 1999; Friedman 1957; Smith 1979). Border moulding is defined as “the shaping of impression material along the border areas of an impression tray by functional or manual manipulation of the soft tissues adjacent to the borders to duplicate the contour and size of the vestibule�. It is also defined as determining the extension of a prosthesis, by using tissue function or manual manipulation of the tissues to shape the border area of an impression material. It can be accomplished by using either a sectional or a single-step technique, using different types of materials. 5 Many procedures used in prosthodontics, including the materials and methods used for complete denture impressions, lack support of good evidence. The aims were to systematically, and critically, review the literature on complete denture impression materials and methods to identify an impression procedure that can be considered expedient for achieving a satisfactory clinical outcome for complete denture wearers. 2 In the literature there is a distinction between open and closed mouth techniques, techniques without pressure, techniques with selective pressure of the operator, mucostatic and mucodynamic techniques and techniques with active (patient) and passive (operator) functional movements. Techniques of functional impression taking with simultaneous determination of interjaw relationships are also described. Complete dentures are primarily mechanical devices but since they function in the oral cavity, they must be fashioned so that they are in harmony with the normal neuromuscular function.

Even though there are wide variations in individual preferences for a particular material or method, most authorities believe that, for a successful outcome to be achieved, a two-step procedure is required.

tray, and a final impression with a variety of materials in a custom tray, typically made of acrylic resin.

However, whether any one combination of material and technique yields a better long-term result for the complete denture performance than another is a question that remains open due to a lack of strong evidence. 7

The objective of complete denture treatment is to enable recovery of occlusal, masticatory, esthetic, physiognomic, phonetic and psychosocial functions of the patients.

Conclusion Practically all dental schools and the majority of prosthodontists use a two-step procedure for complete denture impressions. All textbooks on complete dentures available to us, including the most recent ones, advocate a procedure with a preliminary impression, at present usually with an irreversible hydrocolloid (alginate) in a stock

Ali E Al-Kandari National Guard of Kuwait

For many years, medical and dental researchers have been focusing on their own fields of study, conducting researches in medicine related to the general well-being and the health of the oral cavity, respectively. However, the strong relationship between oral disease and systemic conditions has been increasingly studied and proved through the past few decades. Recent studies have provided obvious proof that oral hygiene and systemic well-being are directly related. The recent findings are strongly suggestive of the presence of an association between periodontal disease and systemic diseases such as osteoporosis, cardiac disease, low birth weight, poor control of diabetes mellitus, and pregnancy complications. The numerous efforts of the researchers from both fields have brought about many breakthroughs in our understanding of the

etiological and patho-physiological mechanisms underlying the link between the chronic inflammation present in dental disease and other systemic conditions. Consequently, there is hope that the important findings from these researches may help dentists to greatly improve the current guidelines in treatment of periodontal disease, to prevent the negative consequences of oral disease on systemic health. Therefore, researchers must continue to not only establish the link between oral health and systemic conditions but also to recognize the positive effects of eliminating periodontal infections on the success of the treatment of systemic disease.

Dental News

Periodontal disease is the condition resulting from accumulation of bacteria in the tissues around the teeth which trigger a chronic inflammatory response from the body. The chronic invasion of the gums by bacteria results in bone destruction and weak attachment between the teeth and the gum. There are several types of periodontal disease, from gingivitis which is the mildest form to periodontitis which is severe and difficult to treat. Several risk factors predispose to the development of periodontitis, such as stress, alcohol consumption, smoking, the normal process of aging and conditions that affect the immune system response such as diabetes and (HIV) infection. 1 December 2018

Oral Pathology

The Relationship between Periodontal Disease and Systemic Disease

Gingivitis is the most common form which affects 75 percent of adults in the United States. It involves red inflamed gums with frequent bleeding. There are more severe types that affect about 40 percent of the population in the United States. In these types, there are more accumulations of pathogens which lead to stronger inflammatory process and more severe symptoms. The diagnosis of periodontal disease depends on probing depth as an accurate measurement of the grade of inflammation. A depth less than 2 mm of the periodontal pocket is not considered periodontitis. If the depth of periodontal pockets is 4 mm or more, periodontitis is confirmed. Periodontal pocket depths of 6 mm or more refers to severe periodontitis. 2

The treatment of periodontal disease is usually effective. Such treatments are aimed at eliminating the invading bacteria from the body, ameliorating the inflammatory process, and removing the predisposing factors to prevent further recurrences of the same condition in the future. 3 The main line of treatment of periodontitis is antibiotics that are usually broad spectrum to target most types of bacteria. Antibiotic therapy together with maintaining good oral hygiene, is usually successful in eliminating the infection. However, If the periodontal pockets are not removed, then surgical treatment is indicated to protect against further bone destruction and teeth loss. 4

Periodontal disease and osteoporosis Bone loss occurs in both osteoporosis and periodontitis. A decrease in bone mass occurs because of the increased resorption of bone compared to bone formation, leading to demineralization of bone and finally osteoporosis. 5 Similarly, in addition to weakened attachment of the soft tissue to the teeth, resorption of bone is a feature of periodontal disease: specifically, the alveolar bone. Because of this common pathological mechanism that is shared between periodontal disease and osteoporosis, researchers have tried to establish the links between the two diseases to recognize the possible effect of having one as a predisposition to the other. The underlying pathology in the case of increased resorption of bone may be explained by increased local and systemic osteoclastic activity, or by the local action of inflammatory cytokine on the bone tissue. 6 Increased resorption by osteoclasts is characteristic to chronic inflammations as in periodontitis. In chronic inflammation, the T-lymphocytes express Receptor Activator of Nuclear Factor-kB Ligand and hence it is possible that direct contact between T-lymphocytes and precursor cells to monocytes is involved in the formation of osteoclasts. 7 Osteoprotegerin (OPG) released by stromal cells and osteoblasts inhibits the activation of mature osteoclasts. B-lymphocytes also have a role in formation of osteoclast, either by working as osteoclast progenitor cells or by expressing RANKL. 8 Nagasawa et al., 9 stated that ÂŤOPG mRNA was stimulated by P. gingivalis and A. actinomyecetemcomitans,

indicating that OPG released by the action of LPS might have a role in the process of osteoclast formation in periodontal disease. The findings linking OPG and periodontitis is supported by other studies involving gram negative bacteria. 10 Because the infection due to these pathogens is usually transient, exposure to periodontal infection may stimulate the activation of RANKL and the activity of osteoclasts, leading to development of osteoporosis in patients with chronic periodontitis. Another major mechanism of osteoporosis in women is oestrogen deficiency. 11 Oestrogen, whether directly or indirectly, has a modulatory action on cytokines that work as regulators of bone metabolism and also modulators of the host inflammatory reaction, such as IL-1 alpha and beta, TNF-alpha, and macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF). Therefore, oestrogen deficiency leads to an increased number of osteoclasts, because of the same cytokines which inhibit formation of osteoblasts. The disturbed balance of bone metabolism will result in decreased bone mineral density (BMD).12 Chronic periodontitis also triggers the host inflammatory reaction, thereby recruiting cytokines and leading to formation of osteoclasts and therefore stimulating absorption of bone. High levels of some of these cytokines, such as IL-1 beta, TNF-alpha, and IL-8, were found in the inflamed gingival tissue in patients with periodontal disease, with concentrations that can cause absorption of alveolar bone. 13 Therefore, numerous studies have found a significant positive link between chronic periodontitis and oestrogen deficiency.

The Relationship between Periodontal Disease and Systemic Disease

Another research study in Japan focused on the link between oral health and bone mineral density; these findings proved that chronic periodontitis and teeth loss after menopause are directly related to decreased BMD in post-menopausal females, and the deficiency in oestrogen is the suggested underlying mechanism. 14

In a related study, Wactawski-Wende et al., 15 stated that “a strong and consistent association between alveolar crestal height (ACH) and osteoporosis was found through measurements of bone density and ACH in

The recognition of this link might provide useful warnings for the risk of osteoporosis, as well as important applications in treatment.

Despite the big achievements made in understanding the relationship between periodontal disease and osteoporosis, more efforts are required to clarify the link.

Chronic periodontitis and diabetes mellitus The relationship between periodontal disease and diabetes mellitus is bidirectional. As it was proved that patients with diabetes are more liable to develop one or more types of periodontal disease, recent data suggests that periodontal disease can lead to the increased probability of suffering from endocrinal disturbance, including diabetes mellitus. 29 Chronic periodontitis could lead to bacterial spread to blood and various body organs, and thereby activate cells of the immune system. The stimulated cells trigger inflammatory active substances (cytokines) which have a catabolic action all over body systems. 30

Moreover, the chronically elevated levels of inflammatory cytokines in the body can lead to damage of the beta cells of the pancreas, leading to a decrease in the secretion of insulin. This process can lead to development of diabetes in patients with no family history, obesity, hypercholesterolemia or other risk factors. 31 Due to the possible effect of periodontal disease on the development of insulin resistance and glucose intolerance and finally overt diabetes mellitus, studies have suggested that preventive dental and diabetes measures, in addition to regular dental and diabetes evaluation and follow up, are necessary to break this link between the two conditions. 32

Chronic periodontitis and malignancy Many research studies have indicated that chronic periodontitis plays a key role as an independent factor for the development of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), with specific characteristic site in the oral cavity. Also, it was found that periodontitis predisposes to carcinoma of the oropharynx and the larynx. 33 Michaud et al., 34 found a strong relationship between the chronic presence of periodontal disease and high risk of being diagnosed with lung, renal, pancreatic, and haematological tumours. These relations are the results of a prospective cohort study and they were confirmed in various studies with modification of risk factors, including cigarette smoking and patients’ socioeconomic status. 34 However, the strongest evidence was found in the research studies of the relationship between oral and oesophageal cancers and chronic periodontal disease.


Dental News

A relationship was proven between gastric and pancreatic cancers and periodontal disease in vast majority of the reviewed papers, although tumours of the lungs and the blood and other tumours were less proven or there were insufficient studies to establish a strong connection. 35 Moreover, Tezal et al. 36 concluded that having periodontal disease can affect the pathologic type of cancers. The study found that patients with periodontal disease are more liable to have poorly-differentiated types of squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity than patients without chronic periodontitis. These results were said to have applications in clinical and preventive measures, diagnosis, and treatment of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. The possible connection between chronic periodontitis and malignancy is not obvious, but chronic infection exposure is being studied. 37 December 2018

The Relationship between Periodontal Disease and Systemic Disease

Chronic periodontitis and pregnancy Numerous research studies have focused on the possiblerelationshipbetweenperiodontaldiseaseandpoor pregnancy outcomes, pregnancy complications and defective health status of the new-born. Recently, many studies have confirmed the presence of a link between low birth weight and preterm babies and chronic periodontal disease regardless of the paternal health status, race, and the age of the mother. 38 There is also evidence that periodontal disease may be an independent factor for increased susceptibility to pregnancy complications. 39 Primary evidence indicates that treatment of periodontal infection might lead to a decrease in pregnancy-related complications. 40 The underlying mechanism is not clear yet. However, some studies suggest that the presence of bacterial infection leads to stimulation of cell-mediated immunity and then the production of various cytokines including interleukins, prostaglandins, which is important during the process of delivery, and tumour necrosis factor. 41 The newly-suggested mechanism of labour states that the levels of these cytokines increase significantly within the intra-amniotic through all phases of pregnancy, until a certain high level is reached which induces the process of labour. 41

Therefore, it is quite reasonable to suppose that the presence of any type of infection, for example periodontitis, could lead to increased levels of the normal mediators of delivery leading to preterm birth and possibly low birth weight. 42 Researchers also suppose that overt infections such as periodontitis can lead to preterm birth and low birth weight through the invading microorganisms or the byproducts and toxins of the bacteria including lipopolysaccharide (LPS), which invade the uterus through blood stream, stimulating cytokine production in the uterus and placenta or in the amniotic fluid, leading to elevated prostaglandin, which stimulates the contraction of the uterine muscles. 41, 42 Moreover, it was indicated that pregnant women who suffer from some degree of periodontal disease are more liable to gestational diabetes mellitus than pregnant women who are free of periodontitis. 43 However, more research studies are needed in the coming years to have a strong statistically significant correlation between periodontal disease and endocrinal disorders including diabetes, as well as the link with poor pregnancy outcomes.

Conclusion The relationship between periodontal disease and the development of various systemic diseases, such as diabetes mellitus (DM), osteoporosis, pregnancy complications, and coronary vascular disease, is the topic of many research studies. Although most studies have provided evidence suggesting the presence of a positive relationship between periodontal disease and various systemic diseases, many physicians and dentists greatly advocate the need for more studies to confirm these conclusions. In general, more controlled clinical trials and more randomized samples are needed to confirm the relationship between periodontal disease and these systemic diseases. Studies on each of the systemic conditions have their own defects that prompt further research. Current studies of the relationship between periodontal disease and coronary vascular disease should provide more data to differentiate between the stimulation of inflammatory cytokines by periodontitis as opposed to the possibility of a direct infection of the endothelium (or both).


Dental News

Furthermore, anti-inflammatory and antibiotic therapy as a treatment strategy for periodontal disease should be incorporated in the studies to assess their role in preventing the deterioration of cardiovascular disease. Regarding diabetes mellitus, the current notion that chronic inflammation associated with periodontal disease may result in the metabolic disturbances associated with DM needs further evidence to clarify the underlying mechanisms. Also, elucidation of the mechanism underlying the relationship between periodontal infection and coronary vascular disease may provide a hypothesis that unifies both diseases, which may aid in the prevention of complications associated with both diseases. Regarding the relationship between periodontal disease and osteoporosis, more information about the molecular mechanisms involved in the activation of RANKL/RANK system could help in the development of new pharmacological methods for the inhibition of excessive bone resorption. Also, larger studies are needed to assess the value of osteocalcin, calcitonin, and parathyroid hormones as laboratory indicators of periodontal disease activity. December 2018

Furthermore, more studies are needed to clarify the mechanisms by which periodontal disease may lead to malignancy, low birth weight, and pregnancy complications. It is of specific importance to differentiate between the presence of a causative relationship and a simple association.

Lastly, oral health has direct and/or indirect effects on the individual’s general health. Both dentists and physicians should recognize the increasing significance of this relationship in modern health care. Dentists should increase their awareness and their clinical exposure to relevant systemic diseases to be able to interact meaningfully about these issues with their medical colleagues. Team approach is strongly advocated for the management of severe periodontal disease associated with relevant systemic conditions.

Simplification of Endodontic Treatment Using the 2Shape System Abstract

Wael Batbout Post graduate student

Emna Hidoussi Assistant Professor

Neila Zokkar Professor

Aim: This work describes clinical cases treated with an innovative endodontic nickel-titanium system (2Shape® system) used in continuous rotation.

Case description: We presented two clinical cases treated with 2Shape® system. It is used for complete shaping of root canal after an adequate preflaring.

Background: Nickel titanium files are commonly used for root canal treatment but they tend to break because of bending stresses and torsional stresses.

Conclusion: 2Shape® seems to be helpful for the treatment of most of the root canals, with low risk of separation. The respect of clinical protocol guarantees predictable good results.

Today new instruments used on rotary have been introduced. They help the clinician to make the root canal shaping easier and safer.

Key Words: Root canal shaping, Irrigation, Nickel-Titanium instrument

Introduction The main aim of root canal treatment is to clean and shape properly the root canal system. This objective can be achieved only when there is a continuous tapering of the root canal which helps the irrigating solution to flow easily within the canal. This will allow a better removal of the debris and a proper placement of the obturating material 1. Although mechanical preparation and chemical disinfection cannot be considered separately and are commonly referred to as chemomechanical or biomechanical preparation2. Considerable importance should be given not to cut excessive dentin to get adequate taper of the canal. So, the challenge for every file system is to clean and shape the root canal without cutting the excessive dentin. With the introduction of nickel titanium in endodontics, difficulties like curved canals leading to instrument fracture which were commonly encountered using stainless steel files are solved. Nickel titanium files are flexible, have good elasticity and have more resistance to fracture. They also help to maintain the original canal anatomy 3.

The superelasticity of NiTi instruments allows obtaining a constant tapered root canal but in clinical practice they are always exposed to the risk of fracture 5. Nowadays many instruments are developed by manufacturers in order to reduce this fracture risk. Therefore, knowledge of both clinical guidelines and metallurgical properties of Ni-Ti rotary instruments is critical for their successful use. These evolutions reduced significantly file breakage that nevertheless was still haunting NiTi users and pushed forward the researches into new directions. Thermo-mechanical treatment of endodontic wires prior, during or post machining of endodontic files enhanced the flexibility of these files.

Simplification of Endodontic Treatment Using the 2 Shape System

These innovative treatment procedures opened the way for a totally new area of NiTi alloy with specific microstructural atomic composition. Combining the cumulative knowledge on file design and new heat treatment procedures. Recently, a new file system has been introduced to simplify instrumentation protocols and to reduce stresses. The 2Shape® system (Micro Mega®) is made of nickel titanium alloy and is intended for the root canal treatment till the apex. This system consists of two instruments the TS1 and TS2 files with a tip size respectively 004 and 006 constant taper. These files are used in continuous rotary and the main characteristic is the asymmetrical cross sectional design of the working portion. The aim of this study was to report two clinical cases treated endodontically with 2Shape® system (Micro Mega®).

Case Report Case 1 A 40 year old male referred to the Department of Conservative dentistry and Endodontics of the University Dental Clinic of Monastir with the chief complains of pain in the right mandibular region. The medical history was not contributory. According to the clinical examination an initial diagnosis of irreversible pulpitis related to the first right mandibular molar was made and previously treated on emergency. Radiographic examination showed proximal caries approaching the distal pulp horn with no periapical radiolucency (Fig 1).

The canal shaping was done using 2Shape® system and was prepared till the TS2 file of this system. Between filing, copious irrigation of root canal was performed with 2,5% sodium hypochlorite solution. The canal was dried with paper points and filled with calcium hydroxide. The access cavity was sealed provisionally with a coronal filling cement ready for use (Cavit®). After 2 weeks, the patient presented to continue root canal treatment. The clinical examination revealed that the tooth was asymptomatic.

Discussion Successful endodontic therapy relies on accomplishment of the objectives of endodontic therapy through the cleaning, shaping and root canal filling 10. Traditionally, the shaping of root canals was achieved by the use of stainless steel hand files. However, techniques using stainless steel hand files have several drawbacks. They require the use of numerous hand files and drills to adequately prepare the canals 11. Hand instrumentation with stainless steel files is time consuming. The stainless steel hand instrumentation techniques have an increased incidence of canal transportation 11. Nickel titanium rotary shaping files fundamentally changed everything in endodontics; conceptually, procedurally and economically as well. NiTi rotary files made root canal therapy more accessible. The 2Shape® has been introduced to prepare majority of the root canals with only two files. According to the principles of minimally invasive endodontics 12, the 2Shape® system allows preserving the tooth as much as possible. This system is simple to use. The majority

of canals are shaped by two instruments, TS1 and TS2. Simplified intuitive sequence with 2 shaping instruments in continuous rotation directly at the working length. It is developed for using in continuous clock wise rotation with rotational speed at 350 rpm and torque setting at 2Ncm. The main characteristics of these instruments are: - An inactive tip to guide the instrument avoiding any risk of perforation 13 - A symmetrical Cross section with 3 cutting edges: the perfect compromise between cutting efficiency and debris removal. The asymmetrical cross section reduces the risk of instrument fracture. - A progressively increasing pitch to avoid the screwing and to further improve flexibility - 2Shape® has been heat treated using the T. Wire method, which improves the instrument flexibility (40%) and provides the practitioner with added comfort 13. December 2018

Its protocol requires an adequate preflaring before the root canal shaping. Preflaring, Canal Scouting and Glide Path are the first phases of canal instrumentation and it has also been noted that, during these phases, the clinician might more frequently encounter procedural difficulties. These problems include instrument fracture, ledge formation, canal zipping or canal straightening, strip perforation, apical perforation, elbow formation and apical blockage. All of these errors can lead to incomplete debridement of the root canal system and contribute to decreased success rates of endodontic therapy. The minimal size of the endodontic Glide path should be a “super loose No. 10” endodontic file. The Glide path must be discovered if already present in the endodontic anatomy or prepared if it is not present 14. This can be done either with manual files 15 or with rotary files 16 such as Path files® or One G®. The advantage of a pre-shaping lies in securing the future passage of the tip of the shaping instrument. Both instruments (TS1 and TS2) have the same Instrumental dynamics. It is a progressive movement in three

waves (3 up-and-down movements) with upward circumferential filing movement. The instruments are inserted in rotation into the root canal until a resistance can be felt. At the end of each progression, we have to perform a brushing movement in order to eliminate the primary constraints. Then, the instrument is removed from the canal and cleaned. The canal is irrigated with 3% sodium hypochlorite and permeabilized with K file (15 /100). All the portions of the canal (cervical, middle and apical) are thus shaped successively according to a “crown-down” approach. Two to three cycles are usually sufficient to reach the working length. In some cases, we require greater apical preparation, either because the canal is naturally wide or because the canal is infected and therefore the shaping and canal cleaning must be optimized 17. In these cases, one of the apical finishing instruments of the 2Shape® system is used. Either the F35 (35 / 100th tip diameter and 6% taper), or the F40 (40 / 100th tip diameter and 4% taper) for the rather curved canals. Their dynamics of use is identical to that of other 2Shape® instruments.

What can composite do? Because of the demands routinely placed on it, the classic material composite often has to withstand more than some materials used in space research. International opinion leaders have been asked what it is that modern high-performance composites can now achieve and what concrete tips experts have for easier handling of the material in the dental practice. The usual requirements profile for the all-rounder composite is an ambitious list: a reliable restoration material should be mechanically stable, as long-lived as possible, biocompatible and highly aesthetic. It should also be easy to manipulate while enabling the dentist to work cost effectively. The current trend in material research is for in-house development of high-performance composites that mimic the natural properties of the teeth such as the low modulus of elasticity or extra long-lasting gloss.

Figure 1: BRILLIANT EverGlow syringes

Within the framework of meetings with international key opinion leaders, the pioneers of aesthetic filling therapy have developed new ideas for dental practices and continually add to their range of diverse composite solutions. Aesthetically challenging restorations are, for example, prepared with the wide range of shades available in the MIRIS 2 system.

This biomimetic approach ensures that the restoration blends in harmoniously with the hard tooth structures of the particular patient.

The dimensionally stable, nano-hybrid composite Synergy D6, on the other hand, can be easily modelled. The latest gem from the company’s research laboratories in Altstätten is a range of premium composites known as ‘BRILLIANT’ and for good reason.

For decades, the Swiss dental specialist COLTENE has regularly surveyed aesthetic experts and restoration professionals around the world about their experiences with universal composite.

Renowned dentists from around the world can testify to the exceptional material properties of the system based on the experience they have gathered in their routine treatments. December 2018


What can composite do?

Fig. 2




Figure 2a – c: Thanks to the wide range of shades available, dark areas can be rapidly and effectively camouflaged with an opaque composite

Simple shade management and ideal shade integration As a renowned specialist for cosmetic dentistry, Dr Monik Vasant from London requires a restoration material that above all satisfies the most stringent aesthetic requirements. What is critical here is both good gloss retention and abrasion resistance but also the necessary translucence to create a natural look. He has used BRILLIANT EverGlow since its market launch in 2015: ‘Thanks to the predictable results, I use the material in all sorts of situations, every time I want to work using traditional VITA shades.’ In the Duo shade system, each composite mass covers two classic VITA shades from A1/B1 to A4/C4.

According to Vasant, minimally invasive restorations that are visually appealing can be reliably implemented in a single layer even without ceramic using BRILLIANT EverGlow. Filling margins can be easily veneered thanks to the opacity of the material and the affected tooth does not require additional preparation.

Each of the seven universal (body) shades integrates almost seamlessly into its surroundings. For the highest aesthetic requirements, one of two enamel shades can be used to create translucent incisal edges or a youthful appearance for anterior teeth. To mask highly discoloured teeth and any shade deviations, it is recommended to use one of three opaque shades.

It can also be polished to produce a high gloss that is maintained, a property intrinsic to the material.’ The restorative dentistry specialist closely follows current developments in the manufacture and research of new high-performance composites.

The principle dentist of the Smile Design Clinic in Moscow, Dr Zhanna Lipkind, agrees with her British colleague: ‘The universally applicable composite is now an integral part of my routine work. Outstanding results can be achieved with just a single shade.

Application and layering strategy

The American Dr Ross Nash, founder of the institute of dental learning of the same name in Huntersville, also values the rapid polishability of the composite using diamond burs or silicone polishers suitable for composite. The time savings that result from using naturally brilliant materials cannot be underestimated, particularly with the heavily booked schedules of some joint practices. In the same vein, his Portuguese colleague Dr João Carlos Tomas Ramos from the University of Coimbra praises the intuitive handling of the biomimetic material: ‘Both the shade selection and the actual restoration using natural layering are simple and effective.’

Figure 5: BRILLIANT EverGlow family

Fig. 6

Dr Vasant states that a filler material suitable for routine use can be comfortably modelled until it polymerises without slumping. Good wettability also ensures that dimensionally stable composite adheres to bonded tooth surfaces and not to the instrument. Jörg Schwela, a private dentist in Switzerland, recommends using a low-viscosity option as a liner on the base of the cavity or when filling difficult to access areas. Thanks to the application needle that is supplied, the composite is applied directly onto the bonded surface from the syringe in a controlled manner. High-performance composites have long maintained an important position in routine use in Germany as well, said practice owner Dr Sylvia Rahm. ‘For me, the future of restorative dentistry lies in minimally invasive adhesive technology,’ said the leader of many workshops and continuing education sessions on the topic of innovative anterior restoration. ‘BRILLIANT EverGlow is the filling and luting material for everyday use. The smooth consistency enables confident modelling by hand.’ Even in the CAD/CAM area, composite-based solutions are being used more and more often thanks to their dentine-like modulus of elasticity and their exceptional grinding precision. Luting is carried out with a custom bonding system, the universal composite of the same name or, depending on the clinical situation, a dual-curing cement from the same manufacturer. The name of the BRILLIANT product family is also clearly a part of the program according to Dr Rahm: ‘The material is impressive primarily because of its long-lasting gloss even with minimal polishing. The design of the fissures remains wonderfully preserved in the process.’ Clarence Tam, managing director and owner of the New Zealand Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (NZACD),

Figure 6: Demonstration model with CAD/CAM generated dental restoration based on composite

describes in similar terms the outstanding chameleon effect that she has observed in her previous cases: ‘The satin-like appearance always looks really good in the follow-up examination, provided you can tell by just looking exactly where the prepared restoration is hidden.’

Summary Modern high-performance composites offer the dentist a range of possible applications. While ‘self-flowing’ low-viscosity variants can make treating difficult to access sites considerably easier, CAD/CAM blocks based on composite enable cost-effective and efficient preparation of permanent restorations using digital technology. Unlike more brittle materials such as ceramic, composite has the additional advantage that any corrections that are needed can be quickly and easily processed and repaired at any time. International specialists recommend applying a submicron universal composite such as BRILLIANT EverGlow directly from the application tip onto the bonded surface and then polishing the restoration to a brilliant shine in just a few steps.

OXYSAFE® – The Effective Treatment of Periodontitis and Periimplantitis by Innovative Oxygen Technology The utmost goal of a successful periodontal or periimplantal therapy should not only be the removal of the inflammatory process, but the regeneration of the periodontal tissue as well. Usually, a onetime mechanical measure (débridement), such as scaling and root planing, is not sufficient and just the first step in periodontal therapy. OXYSAFE (Hager & Werken) does not only convince by its fast wound healing and reduction of tooth pocket depth by new oxygen technology, but it offers an individual treatment concept for a long-term periodontal prophylaxis as well. More than 11.5 mill. German citizens suffer from a bacterial inflammation of the periodontium. Non-treatment of this inflammation leads to an extensive infection fast accompanied by reduction of periodontal bone tissue, not rarely ending in tooth loss. Common risk factors promoting this development are poor mouth hygiene, smoking, diabetes, stress as well as a genetic predisposition. Meanwhile, more German citizens lose their teeth due to periodontitis than due to caries. Periodontitis has become the most common chronic disease in Germany. The etiopathology is often underestimated, as it is often free of pain and even frequent gum bleeding is not taken seriously by the patient. Only when tooth pockets filled with bacteria arise, the patient suffers from strong halitosis

and talks about it with the dentist. In extreme cases, we only see the patient at the time when the receded gingiva has already completely exposed the neck of the tooth and/or even the jawbone has been affected. Similarities can be seen in the topic of periimplantitis. The fact that periimplantitis is a chronic disease that may affect up to 30 % of the implants within 5 years and that also causes inflammations is often ignored. Each year, more than 1 million tooth implants are inserted in Germany alone. The scar tissue surrounding the implant offers only reduced protection versus the natural gingiva, so bacteria can basically penetrate easier. And if even a periimplantal mucositis has developed, the inflammatory processes start their course. Without treatment these inflammations often end up in the loss of the implant. Former treatment concepts, like gingivectomy, are no longer applied nowadays because of the risk of hypersensitivities resp. of a poor esthetic result. So-called local device delivery systems offer an alternative. These are local applications of anti-inflammatory agents. There is a diversity of different systems varying in the active agents. The penetration of the biofilm is limited physically, when using antibiotics and chlorhexidine preparations. The molecules are too big to pass the biofilm with the December 2018

causative bacteria. Additionally, a systemic antibiotherapy should only be performed under strict indication due to the associated and undesirable side effects. Also the administration of chlorhexidine over a longer time period affects the natural oral flora, so the use should be temporarily limited in time. Searching for the optimal alternative, we discovered the OXYSAFE products for the first time during the IDS. These products are available in two versions: OXYSAFE Professional Perio Protection Gel for the dentist and OXYSAFE Professional Liquid Mouthwash for domestic after-care. The patented technology is based on active oxygen (hydrocarbon–oxygen complex) being activated by contact to the mucosa. By this, the active oxygen is directly released into the area to be treated thus significantly reducing anaerobic bacteria. Simplified: The proteins in the biofilm oxidate thus obtaining an enhanced penetrability of the biofilm deeply into the gingival pocket. The anaerobic bacteria are deprived of their nutrition base, they are dissolved in the cell walls thus being destroyed. So, OXYSAFE eliminates harmful anaerobic bacteria (mainly in the pockets), which are responsible for periodontitis and periimplantitis.

Picture 1: 50-year old male patient presents himself with a chronic, generalized periodontitis. Apparent hyperplastic gingiva.

Furthermore, the micro-environment enriched with oxygen has got a verifiably positive effect on the regeneration of the peridontially harmed gingiva and the gingival pockets. The OXYSAFE Perio Protection Gel is available for the dentist in a ready-for-use 1 ml syringe with a fine synthetic application cannula guaranteeing an economic and precise dosage. Although OXYSAFE acts antibacterially and fungicidally, it does not cause any cell death in erythrocytes or leukocytes. Mucosa cells and osteoblasts remain untroubled alike. A significant diminution of the pocket depth and even a remission of the gingiva can be determined from the first treatment phase. OXYSAFE had also been tested in diverse independent studies. A study of the Nijmwegen University proved the reduction of bacteria responsible for periodontitis as well as a reduction of the pocket depth of 56 %. A significant healing effect and partially even a re-osseointegration could be observed in 75 % of all periimplantitis patients (even in smokers). Also the treatment of chronic wounds with turned out to be especially effective. A improvement in many cases even a wound healing could be observed in 81 diabetes patients.

The mega trend 3D printing: Advertorial

Dentistry is heading the field and creating new opportunities 3D printing is still considered to be a possible “game changer”: New treatment methods, new forms of team work, new business models. Dentistry is one of the pioneers. The current opportunities for the practice and laboratory are within grasp - at the International Dental Show, 12 to 16 March 2019, in Cologne. According to a current analysis, the worldwide market for 3D printing products in the industry is estimated to grow by between 13% and 23% up to a volume of Euro 22.6 billion by 2030. Specifically in the medical technology sector it is estimated to increase from Euro 0.26 billion (status: 2015) up to Euro 5.59 billion (2030). According to the estimations of the experts, the development will occur in two phases: primarily the “reinvention” of existing products up until around 2020, then increasingly innovative materials and optimised printing methods. In the industry comparison, 3D printing is experiencing the strongest growth in the medical and dentistry sectors. Hence the dentists, dental technicians and the dental industry are taking on a natural pioneer role.

of plastic for instance. Market researchers see the biggest opportunities for orthodontic appliances, prostheses, crowns, bridges, aligners and models. Wide sections of which have in the meantime become areas of application in the laboratory and practice. This manufacturing process continually attracts special attention with spectacular applications. For example, in the prophylaxis segment an individualised, 3D imprinted dental floss holder is one of the advanced developments. Vivid images prove effective for the communications. A digitally modelled smile agreed upon together with the patient serves here as the template for an imprinted 3D model, this is in turn used to produce a negative of the patient’s teeth in a silicone key and ultimately a thin “veneer simulation” of the actual restoration for an initial aesthetic check in the patient’s mouth.

This serves to extract a precisely matching block of bone from another part of the body (i.e. calf) which is subsequently fitted into the mouth - for the patient this is approx. an eight hour “all-in-one OP”. Talking about 3D printing in the singular form seems to be an under exaggeration today - there are namely so many different methods meanwhile. These include the stereolithography with a precision degree in the lower two-digit micrometre area, which is suitable for instance for drilled templates and which can be used for a wide range of resins in the dentistry sector. Furthermore, the DLP method is also available: It excels because it is extremely fast because due to the one-time exposure (instead of a dancing laser beam) the respective next layer of the object hardens as quick as lightening. The polyjet method attains an extremely high degree of precision (16 micrometres). It functions most similarly to the familiar office printer and doesn’t require support constructions and material post-processing.

Picture from the Audience During Prof. Christian Makary Lecture

Celebrating 10 years of Dental Facial Aesthetics The 2018 Dental Facial Cosmetic Conference & Exhibition celebrated its 10th anniversary this year on 09-10 November 2018. Over 38 international speakers and key opinion leaders, 27 lectures, 21 hands-on dental training courses, 10 poster presentations and over 30 free CME sessions took place during Dubai Dental Week (07-12 November 2018). The term “cosmetic dentistry” was invented in the 1990’s, but it actually dates back to the ancient times. It is well known that wooden sticks were used to clean their teeth for beauty and not for health reasons, in early 3000 BC. The Middle-East’s largest dental conference related to aesthetic dentistry once again opened it’s doors on 09 November 2018 at the InterContinental Hotel Dubai Festival City. The two day event featured interactive lectures, hands-on trainings, seminars, trade show exhibition and additional CME related events. Ten years together – one decade, learning through experience and exchange, the dental communities come together to contribute in the evolution of cosmetic dentistry and development within the field. Thanks to modern technologies and the fast growing evolving of the materials and techniques; cosmetic treatment from teeth whitening, laser procedures, composite fillings, dental bonding to veneers and dental implants, cosmetic dentistry is defining a new epoch. It has been incredible to experience the growth of this conference over the past decade, to review progress and challenges in cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry.

ALL-BOND UNIVERSAL® Light-Cured Dental Adhesive

BISCO’s ALL-BOND UNIVERSAL allows you to standardize clinical protocols for effective delivery of adhesion. ALL-BOND UNIVERSAL is a light-cured, single-component dental bonding agent that combines etching, priming, and bonding in a single bottle. It simplifies restorative procedures by adapting to self-, total-, and selective-etch techniques and due to the low film thickness, ALL-BOND UNIVERSAL is easily spread thin allowing for easy cementation to tight-fitting crowns. ALL-BOND UNIVERSAL is compatible with all light-, self-, and dual-cured resin composites and cements for all direct and indirect bonding procedures. Other single-bottle adhesives may need more than 1 bottle for indirect restorations, but with ALL-BOND UNIVERSAL, no additional activator is required providing you a significant cost savings and guaranteed clinical effectiveness! website:

VITA AKZENT® Plus CHROMA STAINS: Quick assistance for shade corrections Chroma changes made easy!

Universal and efficient

Determining and communicating the correct tooth shade has a significant impact on the esthetic result of a restoration, particularly in monolithic treatments, where characterization with stains and glaze is becoming increasingly important. The CTE independence of VITA AKZENT Plus CHROMA STAINS means they can be applied to almost all ceramic materials, allowing a more chromatic shade to be achieved quickly and easily within a VITA classical A1–D4 shade group.

VITA AKZENT Plus CHROMA STAINS are CTE independent stains that can provide a change of shade saturation across the full ceramic range. This applies to all ceramic veneering systems: VITA VM, VITA VMK Master as well as VITA TITANKERAMIK. Now, even monolithic or veneered treatments based on CAD/CAM, such as VITABLOCS, zirconia VITA YZ (T and HT) and VITA SUPRINITY PC zirconia-reinforced glass ceramics can be modified quickly and efficiently to guarantee harmonious shade integration of the final restoration.

If the shade of a restoration fails to harmonize with the existing teeth during fitting or insertion, VITA AKZENT Plus CHROMA STAINS can be used as a rapid remedy; there is no need to remake the restoration. It is sufficient to carry out a stain fixation firing or stain/glaze firing in order to give the restoration more chroma and achieve a perfect shade match.


In general, the greater the change in chroma, the thicker the powder and liquid mix must be to achieve a higher chroma. The mix is made correspondingly thinner for finer chroma nuances. A straightforward stain fixation firing or combination firing with VITA AKZENT Plus Glaze (or VITA AKZENT GLAZE LT) will fix the chromatic change on the restoration.

Enjoy the handling! • New syringe design featuring easy extrusion & no uncontrolled flow-out • Optimal viscosity to easily separate the material from the tip • New tips with a long bendable needle for unparalleled access to difficult posterior cavities website:

PlanMill dentists to get even more choice The range of materials for PlanMill has been extended to include Tetric CAD and IPS e.max ZirCAD. The Tetric CAD composite blocks and the IPS e.max ZirCAD zirconium oxide materials have now been released for use with the PlanMill milling units (Planmeca). This provides practitioners with even more opportunities to produce high-quality restorations at chairside. In addition, three new shades have been added to the range of Telio CAD cross-linked PMMA blocks. Tetric CAD is an esthetic composite block designed for the efficient production of single-unit restorations. Due to the pronounced chameleon effect of the material, restorations made of Tetric CAD optically blend into the existing tooth structure to generate a natural esthetic integration. The block is easy to use and efficient to process: restorations can be milled and polished quickly and then seated using an adhesive technique. The new composite blocks are available in an MT and HT level of translucency, in five and four shades respectively and in sizes I12 and C14.

Zirconium oxide for thin wall thicknesses IPS e.max ZirCAD LT (low translucency) is a monolithic zirconium oxide block designed for crowns and 3-unit bridges. The material allows posterior crowns to be designed in a reduced wall thickness of 0.6 mm and anterior crowns in a reduced thickness of 0.4 mm due to its high mechanical strength of 1,200 MPa(a) and high fracture toughness of 5.1 MPa1/2(b). The reduced thicknesses increase the translucency of the restorations and benefit the esthetic outcome.

Extended range of shades for Telio CAD Shades B3, C2 and D2 have been added to the range of Telio CAD blocks for PlanMill. As a result, the cross-linked PMMA blocks are now available in nine LT shades (BL3, A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B1, in addition to the three new shades) and in two different block sizes (B40L and B55). website:

INTRODUCING THE WORLD’S FIRST HANDPIECE LINE… …WITH CARIES DETECTION Dental professionals that utilize Fluoresce HD for caries excavation achieve a better combination of excavation time and successful removal of infected dentin compared to conventional excavation methods. High-intensity 405 nm (UV) LED light is emitted from fiber optic handpieces instead of white light.

During caries removal, the 405 nm light causes porphyrins emitted by caries to fluoresce orange/red and healthy tooth light green

With a highspeed or lowspeed handpiece, the dentist will only remove the orange/red caries, minimizing the removal of healthy tooth structure (minimally invasive) •

Over the years I followed the path of many colleagues in their professional empowerment. Through trial and error, I’ve figured out a few key character traits that helped hone their professional skills. Education, experience, and pursuit of excellence are three essential traits of a good dental professional. It’s also important to remember the rules outlined below. Continuing education is a key factor as technologies and materials are evolving and making our lives easier while giving a better service to our patients. Following the fields that we like most and being updated about the state of the art of these topics solidifies our decision making in the diagnostic and in the treatment plan. Treating a large number of patients, in or outside the private practice enriches our clinical experience in a positive way. The more you practice the better you will become. The pursuit of excellence takes determination and perseverance. I find that people tend to feel that they don’t need to pursue excellence in the small stuff, which is a wrong attitude. Taking care of the basics is a way to learn to take care of the more complicated tasks. We should always bear in mind that our goal is to deliver an excellent work.

Wishing you a year of success while pursuing excellence. Dental News

EVO.15 The world’s safest contra-angle, developed by Bien-Air Dental In response to public health authorities’ growing concern over patient burns caused by rotary dental instruments, Swiss medical technologies company Bien-Air Dental has developed the EVO.15, the safest contra-angle on the market today. In procedures involving contra-angles, the slightest contact between the instrument’s push-button and the inside of the patient’s cheek may cause the instrument to overheat, resulting in possible burn injuries. The most severe cases have caused third-degree burns requiring recostructive surgery, and potentially exposing the practitioner to lengthy legal action. Equipped with patented CoolTouch+™ heat-arresting technology, the EVO.15 is the only contra-angle proven never to exceed human body temperature. Additionally, the EVO.15 fetures a considerably smaller and lighter shockproof head and premieres technological innovations ranging from a new spray/lighting system to an improved bur-locking system. Committed to safety, the EVO.15 gives progressive dental practitioners peace of mind in all situations.

New Chiropro Bien-Air Dental unveils its new implant motor Designed to simplify the fitting of implants, the new Chiropro has been fully developed around a single philosophy: simplicity. A single control button allows you to control the entire system. Simply turn the button to navigate via the menus and adjust the settings, and press it to confirm the selected value. More over, the control button - the only point of contact between dentists and the unit during procedures - can be easily removed and sterilised to simplify maintenance. Thanks to its clear and concise interface, the new Chiropro plainly display all the information required for procedures to go smoothly: type of instrument, speed, torque, irrigation flow and direction of rotation. Preset operating sequences and the option to modify settings based on patients’ dental features, also make the new Chiropro easier to use.

REVEAL® HD Bulk REVEAL HD Bulk is BISCO’s new light-cured bulk fill restorative composite, optimized for simpler and faster posterior restorations. REVEAL HD Bulk combines appropriate handling, depth of cure, and polishability, allowing clinicians to provide patients with functional and esthetic composites while saving valuable chair time. Thanks to its HD Filler Technology, REVEAL HD Bulk allows for layering increments in 5-6 mm due to its predictable depth of cure. BISCO has perfected a filler-resin system refractive index for superior light transmission, which means light can be effectively refracted and distributed through the material, allowing for optimized depth of cure. The category-leading depth of cure allows for a strong restoration from the top-down so you can place the composite in a single-layer without the need for additional layers or placing a base/liner. Additionally, REVEAL HD Bulk offers low volumetric shrinkage, high flexural strength, and excellent radiopacity, resulting in long-lasting, durable restorations. While REVEAL HD Bulk is indicated for all direct and indirect restorations, clinicians will appreciate the significant time savings that bulk filling provides, especially in posterior teeth.

Encore® D/C and Connexio® Create a bond that can’t be broken.

Encore® D/C dual-cure core buildup composite and Connexio® self-etch bond are a perfect product pairing!

PIRO DENTAL TRADING Attn: Caroline Piro Phone: +12096050927

“Encore D/C + Connexio are the best choices when you are using a dual-cure or a self-cure core build up material. No need for an etching step as with generation 4 and 5 and is chemical compatible, as opposed to most of the self-etching bonding, with dual cure or self-cure composite materials.” ~ Marian Fanica, DDS

Encore® D/C

Dual-Cure Core Buildup Composite Encore D/C is a dual-cure composite core buildup material that enables you to build up just the coronal core or to fabricate a composite post and core that bonds the post, tooth and core together into an integrated whole. The non-slumping formula eliminates the need to use a matrix/core-form and cuts like dentin for a natural feel. Made in the USA.


Dual Cure, Self-Etch Bond Connexio dual-cure 7th-generation adhesive is designed to complement Encore D/C core material, providing dual curing deep in canal, right to the bottom of the post space for a completely polymerized, integrated tooth/ core/post monobloc. The self-etching ability of Connexio provides strong dentin bonds without the need for a separate acid-etching step. Connexio is the optimal bonding agent for dual cure composite materials, like Encore D/C.

NoCord VPS compliments your technique, when using a double cord it adds safety and eliminates re-bleeders; when equi-/supragingival it often eliminates the need for any retraction step at all, and NoCord is ideal for patients with poor tissue conditions.

NoCord Wash and NoCord MegaBody Tray Materials are A-silicone (VPS) impression materials, offering excellent physical and dimensional properties as well as providing high accuracy and stability. It scans beautifully, for you or your lab, for complete digitization. “With NoCord VPS, we see really sharp margins, plus it scans better than any material we have experienced before.” - Paul Mancini, CDT owner of Alternative Dental Lab

Icon smooth surface

The cutting-edge resin infiltration How can white spots on smooth surfaces be treated with esthetically satisfying results but without complex invasive intervention? The answer: by caries infiltration with Icon. After prior treatment with an etching gel, the ‘infiltrant’, a highly fluid synthetic material, is applied onto the affected areas. It is absorbed deep into the porous enamel by capillary force and is then light-cured. Filled with the infiltrant, which optically resembles enamel, the white spots esthetically blend in to the healthy tooth surface. Even mild to moderate fluorosis can be effectively treated with Icon. • Gentle method for counteracting cariogenic white spots – with an esthetic side effect • No unnecessary loss of healthy hard tissue • User-friendly and patient-friendly application process in only one sitting

After having set up its Training Centre in 2014 (Swiss Endo Academy), based at the company’s headquarters, FKG Dentaire is proud to announce a new Continuing Education Centre, located at its representative office, FKG Dentaire DMCC (Dubai, UAE). This Centre exhibits the latest generation of high-end equipment (operating microscopes, phantom heads,...) and offers a real simulation laboratory, allowing general dentists and specialists, to enhance their clinical experience while exposed to the latest endodontics Ni-Ti systems, more particularly to 3D Ni-Ti treatments range: the XP-Endo® sequence.

XP-endo® Shaper Plus sequence FKG Dentaire presents its new single file sequence

A new generation of Swiss-made instruments enables safer and more effective root canal treatments, thanks to unique 3D extension capabilities. The XP-endo® Shaper Plus sequence, launched by leading Swiss endodontic firm FKG Dentaire SA, solves a common problem for dentists: how to treat complex root canal systems without causing damage to the dentinal structure. FKG combined unique Adaptive Core™ technology with 3D design to

create instruments that can easily adapt to the canal anatomy to clean once impossible-to-reach areas. The result is enhanced debris removal and irrigation for a more gentle, conservative treatment compared to instrumentation using traditional NiTi files.

• The XP-endo® Shaper (XP-S) performs 3D debridement of the canal while respecting its natural shape. • The XP-endo® Finisher (XP-F) achieves 3D cleaning and biofilm removal, including in areas impossible to reach with traditional files. • The instruments are delivered in a sterile blister pack destined for single patient use, thus maximising safety.

Constant innovation that inspires Innovative, high-performance and visually appealing – that’s the Synea range. As an important standard feature in dental practices, the Synea products provide users with safety and efficiency in their everyday use. Packed with innovation, Synea has been facilitating constant improvements in dental treatment for 20 years.

The first Synea generation cast its spell over dentists with its elegance and monobloc design in 1998.

Products bearing the Synea brand name combined with a slim profile, an elegant monobloc design and reliable performance began securing a place for themselves in dental practices all over the world as far back as 1998. After this initial success, one technical highlight followed the other hard on the heels. W&H was the first manufacturer in the dental industry to integrate the LED into a turbine head. Finally, the light was where it was needed the most – close to the treatment site. But that wasn’t enough. With its 5x Ring LED+, integrated into the small head of the Synea Vision turbine, W&H underlined its position as the technology leader once again in 2014 and offered dentists a shadow-free view of the treatment site. With W&H’s LED innovations, dentists benefit not only from improved light conditions, but also from reliable functionality even after multiple hygienic reprocessing such as sterilization.

A must-have for every dentist With the sterilizable 5x Ring LED+, integrated in the small head of the Synea Vision turbine, W&H underlined its position as the technology leader in 2014. Dentists benefit from a shadow-free view of the treatment field.

Synea – a synonym for top quality “Made in Austria” meets the high standards placed on dental preparations. W&H has proven with innovative highlights that the company is a master of its craft and even capable of rendering the impossible possible. The focus is always on advancing the dentist’s work. Perfect combination of revolutionary technology and high quality service has allowed W&H as a reliable partner to set new standards in dental practices around the world for 20 years. Synea products are and always have been the must-have for every user.

The head of the red contra-angle handpiece grew smaller with each of the three Synea generations. Today, compact dimensions ensure improved flexibility within the limited confines of the oral cavity. Dental News
