Adhesion to moderate fluorosed enamel: silorane composite versus methacrylate composite: in vitro study. Dr. Chems Belkhir, Associate Professor of Endodontics - Tunisia

Keywords Moderate fluorosis, enamel, silorane composite, methacrylate based composite, adhesion.

Dental fluorosis is a hypomineralisation of the dental hard tissues induced by an excessive intake of fluoride occurring during odontogenesis.4 Fluorosis is clinically manifested, depending on individual susceptibility, by opaque white spots, lines following the perikymata direction, or wavy yellowish and brownish striations of the enamel. Later, the opaque surfaces develop and turn into chalky and the enamel develops small cavities. After tooth eruption, the enamel pits and fissures turn into brown or black.22 A fluorosed tooth requires a particular therapeutic. The fluorosed enamel is hard, brittle and acido-resistant.4, 22 These features represent a real problem for resin composite bonding to this enamel which is little studied. Few years ago, a low shrinkage restorative material of polymerization; silorane composite; was introduced in the dental market. Several studies have shown that silorane composite present better mechanical and physical properties than conventional methacrylate based composite.7, 14, 29 This study deals with a clinically relevant problem that can influence the dental practice it is bonding on moderate fluorosed enamel. The difficulty of bonding on this enamel is the object of limited number of studies. This difficulty is in relation to the specificities of the fluorosed enamel. The aim of the study is to evaluate the adhesion quality of silorane composite on moderately fluorosed enamel in vitro using thermo cycling and infiltration of methylene blue and to com-

pare bonding efficacy of coronal restorations by methacrylate based composite (micro-hybrid) and those by silorane composite on fluorosed teeth.

Materials and methods Sample collection Twenty four recently-extracted, non-carious human teeth (maxillary and mandibular molars) were stored in water and in a refrigerator until use after cleaning with pumice water slurry in order to remove tartar, soft tissues and any other debris. All the collected teeth presented a moderate fluorosis according to the Thylstrup and Fejerskov index (TFI= 4). Cavity preparation Class II box cavity were prepared on the mesial and distal surfaces of each tooth. These preparations were accomplished with carbide burs in a highspeed hand piece with water spray. There was no occlusal connection between the preparations. Each cavity was placed at two millimeters of the cemento-enamel junction and presented the following dimensions: 3 mm height, 2 mm in the bucco-lingual axis, 1, 5 mm in the mesio-distal depth. Buccal and lingual walls of the preparations were approximately parallel and connected to the gingival wall with rounded angles. Prepared teeth were stored in distilled water. Sample preparations The teeth were randomly distributed between two groups of 12 teeth. Following cavity preparation, each tooth was rinsed with distilled water and dried.

The distal faces The cavities located on the distal faces were etched for 30 seconds with an orthophosphoric acid gel at 35% (3M) and rinsed for 30 seconds with 5 cc of distilled water with the help of a syringe. The preparations were gently dried with an air gun and a cotton pellet. A mono component adhesive (scotch bond®, 3M) was applied by friction on the surfaces for 10 seconds, gently air dried and light cured for 20 seconds. A methacrylate based composite (Valux®, 3M) was applied in three successive layers (1mm thinness each). Each layer was photo polymerized for 40 seconds with a second generation LED lamp. A transparent strip was tightened and held by finger pressure against the gingival margin of the cavity so that the preparation could not de overfilled at the gingival margin. The mesial faces The cavities located on the mesial faces were restored with a silorane composite (Filtek silorane) according to the manufacturer protocol: Application of the self etching adhesive system of Filtek® silorane: Apply the self etching primer on the cavity for 15 seconds, gently dry then photo polymerize for 15s. Spread the adhesive on the cavity, dry with air, photo polymerize for 10s. Setting the silorane composite per layer of 1mm thickness. Photo polymerization for 10s each composite layer and final photo polymerization for 40s. A transparent strip was tightened and held by finger pressure against the gingival margin of the cavity.

The apices were sealed with a transparent orthodontic resin (Luxaself UGIM®). A complementary protection was brought with the application of two coats of transparent finger nail varnish on each crown while leaving 1mm around the restorations. The teeth were placed in KCI solution at o, 9 ‰ for thermocycling. Daily cycle: 45 minutes at 6°±2°C + 45min at 60°±2°C. Repeat four times. 16 hours at room temperature. The daily cycle was repeated for five successive days.

Group 2 The distal faces The cavities located on the distal faces were obturated with a silorane composite (Filtek® silorane) according to the following protocol: Etching the enamel with orthophosphoric acid gel at 35% for 30s while paying attention not to overflow on the dentine. Thorough rinsing for 15s and drying. Application of the self etching adhesive system of Filtek silorane: Apply the self etching primer on the cavity for 15 seconds, gently dry then photo polymerize for 15s. Dental News, Volume XXII, Number IV, 2015

A second application of two coats finger nail varnish on each crown was performed. The crowns were immersed in a methylene blue dye solution at 0,1% for 48 hours at room temperature. After withdrawing the teeth from the dye solution, they were rinsed with water and cleaned with abrasive disks to eliminate the dye traces.

Microtome sectioning The roots of each tooth were inserted in a numerated methacrylate resin blocks. At the vertical plane, each tooth was sectioned mesio-distally with a microtome (Isomet® Buehler) across the center of the restorations using the 0,4mm diamond saw with continuous water irrigation. After separating the roots of each tooth from the crown, two sections were obtained: one buccal and the other lingual.

Stereomicroscope observation

Statistical analysis

48 composite resin obturations were analyzed. Each cut was photographed with a stereomicroscope (Zeiss) under magnification of 3 and with a digital camera. (Figs n°1, 2). The observations were separately performed by two observers. The infiltration degree of the product was noted in function of the following scores: Score 0: no infiltration, Score 1: infiltration ˂ to half the enamel, Score 2: infiltration ˃ to half the enamel, Score 3: infiltration of all the enamel and dentin thickness, Score 4: infiltration exceeding the cavity.

The Fisher exact test was used to conduct qualitative analyses of the bonding efficacy between: The operative protocols: Methacrylate composite with two-step etch and rinse adhesive (distal faces) and the silorane protocol (mesial faces). Silorane with etching (distal faces) and the classical silorane protocol (mesial faces). And between the cervical enamel and the occlusal enamel of each cavity. The absence of infiltration (0) and the presence of infiltration (1) were taken as selection criteria. The value p is considered as significant when it is inferior to 0.05.

No significant differences were observed for the adhesion quality between the cervical enamel and the occlusal enamel: p=0,192 for the mesial cavities and p=1 for the distal cavities. The score attributed to each sample depending on the infiltration is reported on table n° 2. (Fig n° 3). Adhesion efficiency of silorane composite on fluoresced teeth: no significant difference: p=1. No significant differences were observed for the adhesion quality between the cervical enamel and the occlusal enamel: p=1 for the mesial cavities and p=0,081 for the distal cavities. The score attributed to each sample depending on the infiltration is reported on table n° 2. (Fig n° 4).

Discussion The literature 4, 22 describes the fluorosed enamel as hard, brittle and acido- resistant. Despite these characteristics, few studies have been interested in the bonding properties on this enamel. Our in vitro study allowed to evaluate the adhesion quality of silorane composite on the moderate fluorosed enamel and to compare silorane composite bonding with methacrylate based composite. There was no difference between adhesion on moderate fluorosed enamel of silorane composite protocol and methacrylate based composite protocol. Silorane composite is associated with a self etching adhesive system. The advantage of these systems to simplify the operative protocol of bonding but their efficiency on the enamel remains questionable and their impact on the fluorosed enamel remains little studied. According to Perlatti D’alpino and al.21, the Silorane protocol and the self-etching bonding procedure associated with methacrylate based composite showed a better adaptation than the separated etching-rinsing protocol. A better result was observed in methacrylate based composite associated with a self-etching adhesive system. Hara and al.11 reported that bonding with selfetching adhesive system was inferior compared to the system using orthophosphoric acid as a separate conditioner. The study conducted by Hannig and al.10 and that conducted by Blunck and al.5 showed, on the opDental News, Volume XXII, Number IV, 2015

posite, that the self-etching adhesive system could have been used as a satisfactory alternative to orthophosphoric acid. In fact failures are produced inside the hybrid layer, causing a fragile bonding, favouring micro-hiatus formation and leading to micro-infiltrations. These failures are generally observed on the adhesive interface and are principally due to a divergence between the demineralization depth and the monomer infiltration. For the self-etching adhesive system, the demineralization and the monomer infiltration are simultaneously produced.19,27 For silorane, the influence of the bonding approach cannot be studied in the same manner as this material has a dedicated adhesive system which represents an advantage. This dedicated adhesive system is conceived to fill the hiatus between a hydrophilic dentin and hydrophobic silorane.15 Mine and al.15 confirmed that silorane adhesive system was capable to present a chemical link to hydroxyapatite crystal. In the study of Santini and Miletic23, an intermediate zone about 1µm between the primer layer and the silorane adhesive was detected with the help of Raman microscopy. According to these authors, this zone can be the weak link in the failure mechanism of silorane restoration. Papadogiannis and al.18 using cylindrical dentinal cavities noted that silorane showed a better behavior than methacrylate based composite as when comparing marginal adaptation. Silorane presented a better performance in marginal occlusal and proximal adaptation. Our study showed no significant difference between silorane and methacrylate composite. Palin and al.17 noted that the cusped deviation caused by the withdrawal of polymerization was significantly weaker when the teeth are restored using silorane compared to those restored by methacrylate. On the other hand, a clinical study of Schmidt and al.24 revealed that the good results presented by a silorane in laboratory tests were not clinically validated. However, in the works conducted by Bagis and al.2, no micro-infiltration was observed on the mesio-occluso-distal preparations restored with a silorane or a methacrylate based composite. Weinmann29 and al. noted that the ring opening chemistry of the Siloranes enables at the first time shrinkage values lower than 1% vol. and mechanical parameters as E-Modulus and flexural strength

22 Restorative Dentistry comparable to those of clinically well accepted methacrylate based composites. Although there are controversies of the bonding system of self-eching system on normal enamel, there is sufficient proof indicating that the bonding systems are capable to provide link forces comparable to those of bonding using ortho phosphoric acid.10, 13 The performances of these systems on the fluorosed enamel remains however a little studied subject. In our study, on the moderate fluorosed enamel, the silorane composite protocol associated with etching didn’t give better results than the classic silorane protocol as well as the methacrylate protocol with etching. Hoffman and al.12, Opinya and Pameijer16 showed the unpredictability of fluorosed enamel treatment and an irregular response to the etching agent. Al-Sugair and Akpata1 reported the etching depth of orthophosphoric acid at 37% on the moderate fluorosed enamel with Thylstrup and Fejerskov Index TFI= 4 are not significantly different from the depth obtained on normal enamel. However, Wersarsing and al.28 showed that for moderate fluorosed enamel the etching time should be long. De Goes and al.6 noted that orthophosphoric acid at 35% used for 15 or 60 seconds produce the same effect on normal enamel. According to Ermis and al.8 works, bonding on normal enamel is better than on moderate fluorosed enamel. The study conducted by Weerasinghe and al.28 which showed the link forces after etching with orthophosphoric acid and the use of self-etching on normal enamel and mild fluorosed enamel are comparable. However long-term adhesion force is to be monitored. In the case of severe fluorosis; where the difference was significant; the self-etching bonding system is inferior to orthophosphoric acid. Pashley and al.20, Tay and al.26 showed that efficiency of self-etching primer on the enamel does not depend on their etching aggressiveness. Through these different works, we can confirm those hypotheses that moderate fluorosed enamel reacts to etching like normal enamel and that bonding may depend on the characteristics of the enamel. Additional studies are necessary on severe fluorosed teeth. Dental News, Volume XXII, Number IV, 2015

Shimada and al.25 have confirmed the regional variations in the adhesion to the enamel. Our study has shown no difference for the three protocols between adhesion to cervical and occlusal enamel. In another study 3 we demonstrated that on mild fluorosed enamel adhesion on the occlusal enamel is better than on the cervical enamel. A change of the prism orientation and manipulation facility on the occlusal enamel argued this study. The results on the fluorosis teeth in our study are obtained thanks to a rigorous operative protocol, starting by small touches drilling during the cavities preparation and ending by a good application of the adhesive by mini-brush friction. In fact, the action of orthophosphoric acid combined to adhesion silorane allow to modify the enamel surface state, whether fluorosis or normal by ameliorating the wettability of the resin and by assuring a physic-chemical bond in addition to the micromechanical one, thus decreasing micro-infiltration. These are consistent with Santini and Mileyic study.23 Thus although, the fluorosed enamel is brittle and acido-resistant, it reacts positively to bonding techniques. Giattchi and al.9 have highlighted the practitioner’s skill ability during resin composite manipulation. For this reason, a good manipulation of silorane composite and methacrylate composite and a respect of the different steps, especially that of adhesive application, allow obtaining good results.

Conclusions Our in vitro study allowed to evaluate adhesion quality of silorane composite on the moderate fluorosed enamel and to compare the coronal restoration sealing using methacrylate composite to those using silorane after thermo cycling and methylene blue infiltration. The stereomicroscope observation has shown that the classic silorane protocol did not have better results than silorane protocol with etching or the methacrylate resin protocol. Our Study has also show that there is no significant difference between adhesion to the occlusal and cervical enamel. Within the framework of this study, we can conclude that: - The self-etching systems associated with silorane composite seem to have the same consequence on the moderate fluorosed enamel as the etchingrinsing approach. The moderate fluorosed enamel

24 Restorative Dentistry reacts in the same manner independently from the etching protocol. - The adhesion of a material to the moderate fluorosed enamel seem to be in relation to several factors, apart from the material properties, such as the degree of fluorosis, the adhesion quality of the adhesive or the degree of the practitioner’s ability. Additional in vitro studies are useful to optimize dental adhesion, reach a better bonding and improving the stability of the adhesive interface over the time. Finally, in vitro investigations are necessary to fully evaluate the properties of silorane composite and methacrylate composite adhesion to the fluorosed enamel and to determine if any of the approaches provides better results.

Abstract Discoloration of the tooth can erode the sparkle from a smile. There are many factors that contribute to tooth staining. It is important to understand that in some cases staining can be prevented but in others it cannot. There are two types of tooth discoloration: extrinsic which affects teeth from the outside and intrinsic which affects the teeth from the inside. The purpose of this article is to review literature on the etiologies and classification of tooth staining and discoloration. Key words: Etiology, classification, extrinsic discoloration, intrinsic discoloration

Introduction The appearance of the dentition is of concern to a large number of people seeking dental treatment and the color of the teeth is of particular cosmetic importance. Tooth discoloration is usually esthetically displeasing and psychologically traumatizing. An understanding of the etiology and classification of tooth discoloration is important to dentists in order to make the correct diagnosis. The correct diagnosis for the cause of discoloration is important as, invariably; it has a profound effect on treatment outcomes.1, 2, 3

Color perception A basic understanding of the elements of tooth color is important for many aspects of restorative dentistry. Teeth are typically composed of a number of colors and a gradation of color occurs in an individual tooth from the gingival margin to the incisal edge of the tooth.1 Dental News, Volume XXII, Number IV, 2015

The gingival margin often has a darker appearance because of the close approximation of the dentine below the enamel. In most people canine teeth are darker than central and lateral incisors and younger people characteristically have lighter teeth, particularly in the primary dentition.1 The normal color of primary teeth is bluish white whereas color of permanent teeth is grayish white or yellowish white. Color of teeth is determined by translucency and thickness of enamel, color of dentin and pulp. Changes in color of teeth may be physiological/pathological or exogenous/endogenous in nature. With increasing age, enamel becomes thinner because of erosion, and dentin becomes thicker because of deposition of the secondary dentin. Therefore, teeth of elderly persons are usually more yellow or grayish yellow than those of younger persons.4 The viewing conditions are extremely important and variables such as the light source, time of day, surrounding conditions and the angle the tooth is viewed from affect the apparent tooth color.1

Classification The coronal portion of the tooth consists of enamel, dentine and pulp. Any change to these structures is likely to cause an alteration in the outward appearance of the tooth caused by its light transmitting and reflecting properties. The appearance of tooth color is dependent on the quality of the reflected light and is also, as a consequence, dependent on the incident light.1 Intrinsic discoloration occurs following a change to the structural composition or thickness of the dental hard tissues. The normal color of teeth is

28 Oral Pathology determined by the blue, green and pink tints of the enamel and is reinforced by the yellow through the brown shades of dentine beneath. A number of metabolic diseases and systemic factors are known to affect the developing dentition and cause discoloration as a consequence. Local factors such as injury are also recognized: 1, 5 1. Alkaptonuria. 2. Congenital erythropoietic porphyria. 3. Congenital hyperbilirubinaemia. 4. Amelogenesis imperfect. 5. Dentinogenesis imperfect. 6. Tetracycline staining. 7. Fluorosis. 8. Enamel hypoplasia. 9. Pulpal hemorrhagic products. 10. Root resorption. 11. Ageing.1, 5

Internalized discoloration is the incorporation of extrinsic stain within the tooth substance following dental development. It occurs in enamel defects and in the porous surface of exposed dentine.1, 5

Extrinsic color discoloration is outside the tooth substance and lies on the tooth surface or in the acquired pellicle. The origin of the stain may be metallic or nonmetallic.1, 5

b) Indirect extrinsic tooth staining: Those which lead to staining caused by chemical interaction at the tooth surface.5, 6

Etiology The etiology of tooth discoloration can be classified according to the location of the stains, either as extrinsic or intrinsic.2 Extrinsic discoloration (table 1) Etiology of extrinsic staining can be divided into two categories: a) Direct extrinsic tooth staining: Those compounds which are incorporated into the pellicle and produce a stain as a result of their basic color.

Direct extrinsic tooth staining is adsorbed onto tooth surface deposits such as plaque or the acquired pellicle. The possible etiological agents include dietary components, beverages, tobacco, mouth rinses and other medicaments.1, 4, 5

Tobacco from cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and chewing tobacco causes tenacious dark brown and black stains that cover the cervical one third to midway on the tooth. Chewing of paan results in the production of blood red saliva that results in a red-black stain on the teeth, gingiva and oral mucosal surfaces.2, 7 Chromogenic bacteria have also been suggested as an etiological factor in the production of stains typically at the gingival margin of the tooth.8 Particular colors of staining are said to be associated with certain mouths, for instance, green and orange (fig.1) in children with poor oral hygiene and black/brown stains (fig.2) in children with good oral hygiene and low caries experience.1, 3, 5 Black stain may be clinically diagnosed as pigmented dark lines parallel to the gingival margin8, 9 or as an incomplete coalescence of dark dots rarely extending beyond the cervical third of the crown.10 Iron supplementation during pregnancy and in childhood may also promote Black stain development.6, 11, 12 The most convincing evidence for the extrinsic method of tooth staining comes from the differing amount of stain found in a comparison of smokers and non-smokers.1, 5, 8

32 Oral Pathology Indirect extrinsic staining of teeth may be associated with occupational exposure to metallic salts and with a number of medicines containing metal salts. The characteristic black staining of teeth in people using iron supplements and iron foundry workers is well documented. Copper causes a green stain in mouth rinses containing copper salts and in workers in contact with the metal in industrial circumstances. A number of other metals have associated colors such as potassium permanganate producing a violet to black color when used in mouth rinses; silver nitrate salt used in dentistry causes a grey color, and stannous fluoride causes a golden brown discoloration.1, 5 The staining effect of prolonged rinsing with chlorhexidine mouth rinses has been documented. A 0.1% chlorhexidine rinse stained slightly more than a 0.2% solution, which produces brown to black discoloration.2, 3, 5 A number of occupation and environmental factors might also be responsible for tooth staining: Industrial exposure to iron, manganese, and silver

may stain the teeth black. Mercury and lead dust can cause a blue-green stain; copper and nickel, green to blue-green stain and chromic acid fumes may cause deep orange stain.2, 5 Intrinsic Discoloration (table 2) These discolorations result from an alteration in the structural composition or thickness of the dental hard tissues. The possible etiology of intrinsic stains includes local and systemic factors.1 Localized injury such as loss of vitality or internal resorption can result in intrinsic staining. Systemic factors can be described as developmental defects such as amelogenesis imperfect and dentinogenesis imperfect, or chronological disturbances including fluorosis, tetracycline and metabolic disorders.7 Besides the pre-eruptive causes for extrinsic discoloration, post-eruption discoloration might occur when the discoloring agent enters the hard tissues either from the pulp or the tooth surface.2

34 Oral Pathology Pre-eruptive causes for intrinsic discoloration Alkaptonuria: This inborn error of metabolism results in incomplete metabolism of tyrosine and phenylalanine. This affects the permanent dentition by causing a brown discoloration.1, 2, 5 Congenital erythropoietic porphyria: This is a rare, recessive, autosomal, metabolic disorder in which there is an error in porphyrin metabolism leading to the accumulation of porphyrins in bone marrow, red blood cells, urine and teeth. A redbrown discoloration of the teeth is the result and the affected teeth show a red fluorescence under ultra-violet light.1, 2, 5, 13 Congenital hyperbilirubinaemia: The breakdown products of haemolysis will cause a yellowgreen discoloration. Mild neonatal jaundice is relatively common, but in rhesus incompatibility massive haemolysis will lead to deposition of bile pigments in the calcifying dental hard tissues, particularly at the neonatal line.1, 2, 5, 14 Amelogenesis imperfect (fig.3): In this hereditary condition, enamel formation is disturbed with regard to mineralization or matrix formation and is classified accordingly. There are 14 different subtypes; the majority is inherited as an autosomal dominant or x-linked trait with varying degrees of expressivity. The appearance varies from the Fig 3

Fig 4: Dentinogenesis imperfect Dental News, Volume XXII, Number IV, 2015

relatively mild hypomature ‘snow-capped’ enamel to the more severe hereditary hypoplasia with thin, hard enamel which has a yellow to yellow-brown appearance.1, 2, 5 Dentinogenesis imperfect (fig.4): The condition is hereditary and there is no treatment.10 Dentinogenesis imperfect has been classified into three types for diagnostic purposes: Type I refers to affected teeth in patients who also have osteogenesis imperfect. Type II refers to affected teeth as an isolated dental trait. Type III refers exclusively to affected teeth of a racial isolate in southern Maryland, and is known as the “Brandywine Isolate”.15 The main condition related to the dentine alone is Dentinogenesis imperfect II (hereditary opalescent dentine). Both dentitions are affected, the primary dentition usually more severely. The teeth are usually bluish or brown in color, and demonstrate opalescence on transillumination. Once the dentine is exposed, teeth rapidly show brown discoloration, presumably by absorption of chromogens into the porous dentine.1, 2, 5 In this condition, the teeth may be outwardly similar to both types I and II of Dentinogenesis imperfect. Radiographically, the teeth may take on the appearance of ‘shell teeth’ as dentine production ceases after the mantle layer has formed.1, 5 Post-eruptive causes for intrinsic discoloration Tetracycline staining: These drugs cross the placenta and can have toxic effects on the developing fetus, and are therefore contraindicated during pregnancy. Toxic effects on the developing fetus include dental discoloration, enamel hypoplasia, and a 40% depression of bone growth. Tetracycline can cause discoloration and enamel hypoplasia of both the primary and permanent dentitions if administered during the period of tooth development. The major factors impacting the amount of tetracycline deposition are dosage, duration of treatment, stage of tooth mineralization, and activity of the mineralization process. The discoloration, which is permanent, varies from yellow or gray to brown depending on the dose or the type of drug received in relation to body weight. After tooth eruption and exposure to light, the fluorescent yellow discoloration gradually changes over a period of months to years to a non

fluorescent brown color. The labial surfaces of yellow-stained anterior teeth will darken in time while the palatal surfaces and buccal surfaces of posterior teeth will remain yellow.4, 16, 17 The calcification of deciduous teeth begins at approximately the end of the fourth month of gestation and ends at approximately 11-14 months of age. Permanent teeth begin calcifying after birth and are not affected by exposure to the tetracycline during the prenatal period. The calcification of permanent teeth is completed at 7-8 years of age with the exception of the third molar (“wisdom” teeth). Therefore, the administration of tetracycline to pregnant women must be avoided during the 2nd or 3rd trimester of gestation and to children up to 8 years of age because it may result in discoloration and enamel hypoplasia. The association between staining and enamel hypoplasia as a result of high doses of tetracycline during calcification is possible.4, 16, 17 Minocycline staining is characterized by a blue-gray to gray hue darkening of the crowns and black or green darkening of the roots of erupted teeth. Minocycline differs from other tetracycline in that it is well absorbed from the gastro-intestinal tract and chelates with iron to form insoluble complexes, and this may provoke the tooth staining.4, 16, 17 Miscellaneous: Discoloration is almost impossible to eliminate if caused by silver nitrate or strongly colored iodine solutions in the root canal. Root canal sealers containing iodoform or precipitated silver can also cause discoloration when contracting pulp chamber dentin. Silver points extending into the crown and corroding because of leakage will cause staining. Diamine silver fluoride caused tooth discoloration when used for treatment of dentin hypersensitivity.4 Fluorosis: Dental fluorosis is a condition of enamel hypo mineralization because of the effects of excessive fluoride on ameloblasts during enamel formation. The critical period for clinically significant dental fluorosis in human maxillary central incisors is during the age range of 15 to 30 months. The main consequence of dental fluorosis is compromised esthetics. In its mildest forms, enamel fluorosis appears as loss of translucency at the tip of the summit of the cups of the premolars, molars, or incisal border of the anterior teeth, poorly demarcated opacities, faint white flecks, spots, or striations.18, 19 Fig 5

38 Oral Pathology Enamel hypoplasia: Discoloration (white, yellow, or brown) of enamel and enamel hypoplasia are the most common and milder states of traumatic dental injury. Hypoplasia is characterized by reduced enamel thickness of varying degrees, as well as pits and other irregularities, and although the hardness and transparency of the enamel remain intact, the extent of irregularities varied from tiny spots to large areas, 18 this condition may be localized or generalized. The effect is directly related to the degree of systemic upset. There may be pitting or grooving which predisposes to extrinsic staining of the enamel in the region of tooth disturbed, often then becoming internalized. 5 Pulpal Pathology: Bacterial, mechanical or chemical irritation to the pulp may result in tissue necrosis and the release of disintegration by-products that might penetrate the tubules and discolor the surrounding dentin. Acute trauma to an erupted tooth can cause intrapulpal hemorrhage giving it a reddish tinge. This discoloration can change to gray-brown in a matter of days as the pulp becomes necrotic

(fig.5). The translucency of the crown gradually decreases, giving rise to yellowish or yellowish brown discoloration.1, 2, 5 Root resorption: Root resorption is often clinically asymptomatic; however, occasionally the initial presenting feature is a pink appearance at the amelocemental junction.1, 2, 5 Dental materials: dental restorations most commonly cause intrinsic discoloration. Amalgam restorations can generate corrosion products, leaving a blue-gray color in the tooth, especially in large cavity preparations with undermined enamel known as amalgam blue. Open margins around composite or glass ionomer restoration may allow chemicals to enter between the restoration and the tooth structure and discolor the underlying dentine.2 Ageing: The natural laying down of secondary dentine affects the light-transmitting properties of teeth resulting in a gradual darkening of teeth with age.1, 5

40 Oral Pathology Conclusion Tooth discoloration is a frequent dental findings associated with clinical and esthetic problems. It differs in etiology, appearance, composition, location and severity. Knowledge of the etiology of tooth staining is of importance to dentists in order to enable a correct diagnosis to be made when examining a discolored dentition and allows explaining to the patient the exact nature of the condition.5 It is very important for practitioners that the drugs prescribed to pregnant women and to children be free from any adverse effect on teeth. Moreover, there is a significant need for more effective methods to educate health professionals, parents, and children about the harmful/adverse effects of drugs on teeth.5

When O.V.D is wrong in complete dentures Dr. Jamila Jaouadi


Case one

Why O.V.D should be correctly determined? • To establish and maintain a harmonious relationship with all oral structures and to provide a masticatory apparatus that is efficient and esthetically acceptable. • To ensure that all the effects of occlusal loading be distributed as evenly as possible to all supporting structures capable of receiving the force. • To best control the undesirable effects of rotational or torquing forces on the prosthesis. • To prevent any deflective contacts of the teeth during centric or eccentric closures as these can produce pathological changes in the supportive structures or in the neuromuscular mechanism that controls mandibular movement.

A 46 year-old man patient; cardiopathic; works as a doctor, consulted us for diseases at the masseter at the right side.

Definitions • Rest Vertical Dimension (RVD) Is the distance measured when the mandible is in the rest position . • Occlusal Vertical Dimension (OVD) Is the distance measured when the occluding rims or teeth are in contact.

At the examination; he presents a complete edentulism at the maxillary; a clII KennedyAppelgathe; and a unilateral mastication.

At the beginning; his first pre-occupation is to have implants, thinking that this will resolve diseases.

We did some modifications on the old upper prostheses to ameliorate stabilization and retention; we also equilibrated occlusion because O.V.D was overestimated. Meanwhile some extractions were performed on some roots of: 35, 36 and 37.

44 Prosthetic Dentistry We examinated the situation more than one time; since ache has regressed; upper prostheses was redone by taking on the new O.V.D. And eventually; the lower one was remade to keep once again the correct O.V.D. For this case; the treatment lasted one year, to finally let the patient use his new prostheses for implant treatment as a surgical guide.

Case two A 54 year old male nurse consulted our service at the Dental-clinic of Monastir for a habitual prosthetic treatment by complete dentures. He complained of a local pain at the lower left side when palpating by the index finger. Radiographic exam; didn’t show any abnormalities except a well- built-up ridge. It was proved that the patient masticates on his ridges and has never got a prosthetic treatment.

His treatment was clearly to regain O.V.D. by a well-done temporary prosthese by making a roll of occlusion strengthened with metal.

Dental News, Volume XXII, Number IV, 2015

And this temporary treatment will be used as a reference for the final restoration when disease regresses.

Conclusion Various aspects presented by the dysfunctions of the masticatory system helped search the different factors that come into play in their etiologies. Probably age is one factor but it is not the only. Clinical aspect of the condition in its various aspects is by far the most important. It concerns the majority of the stages of construction and operation of a complete prosthetic rehabilitation. This treatment is proposed for a pain relief and optimized function but does not mean healing.

48 Restorative Dentistry

COMPONEER™ In difficult cases.

Dr. Mario José Besek Swiss Dental Center

COMPONEER™ is an new generation of front teeth restoration. It is a direct “chairside“ veneering technique based on composite and offers a lot of advantages. Componeers are prepolymerized enamel shaded composite shells, which enables an easier procedure in the freehand technique with composites. The prefabricated componeers, that can be individualized leads into better marginal adaptation and have a 100% connection to the restoration composite, are completely homogeneous and free of voids with a thickness of onlay 0.3mm. The anatomical basic form consists of different sizes and colors which makes the work easier. The correction of unlikely teeth, malpositions and less smile presence seems to be more and more important for patient and dentist. Also the cost – benefit relationship is a criteria, natural beauty, minimal invasive procedure, ability of individualization, repair possibility and technical and dental feasibility. All these basic considerations were inducing the development of COMPONEER™, because it fulfills all criteria. Following different therapy concepts are compared with the COMPONEER™-system and limiting factors were discussed. When we re-create front teeth esthetic, different techniques are available: orthodontic treatment, indirect labmade crowns and veneers, direct CAD/ CAM technique (Cerec), direct prefabricated and individualized ceramic veneers (Lumineer, Cerinate etc.), freehand technique with composite, and newly direct composite veneers, especially COMPONEER™. The enumerating was consciously chosen, because it is representing the change of dental techniques over the time and also the requirements of modern patients. Of course in case of malpositioned teeth sometimes orthodontics is the only and the most minimally invasive treat-

Dental News, Volume XXII, Number IV, 2015

ment and sometimes are here limits and limitations reached (Fig 1). Missing or deformed teeth makes the treatment more difficult and leads into a reconstructive treatment with higher costs. Fig 1

The readiness for adults for orthodontics becomes smaller and in need for esthetics, mostly crown and veneer technology are used. Tooth substance loss using porcelain veneers is less, but when the teeth are malpositioned, the treatment is not possible. All indirect techniques are time consuming, material intensive, painful and combined with high costs. To reduce several factors chairside veneering was introduced with ceramic (Cerec). Lab costs were reduced but in the same time also the indications. Esthetic becomes more and more important and different direct Ceramic systems were introduced, but in difficult cases not feasible. Esthetic was for decades the domain of prosthodontics, where innumerably teeth were heavily prepared. New techniques, materials and the knowledge about adhesion forces, made us think differently. With suitable concepts it is possible today to offer durable esthetic solutions, saving tooth substance and money. New composite materials allow with the direct restoration technique to make a direct blending without too much preparation.

The liming factor is the homogeneity of the most composite materials which leads often in surface porosity or discoloration. A perfect adhesion at the margins is also required. In the case of ceramics, we have limitations because of the “sandwich“ technique and adhesion to Ceramic is about 30% less than on enamel or composite. Aging of the marginal integrity can sometimes start earlier (Fig 2). Direct ceramic veneers can not be individualized or finished at the margins. If the surface is finished through the material, discoloration will start here first (Fig 3). But also direct composites has some shortcomings as porosities are finding a way when shaping and texturing the anatomical form. It makes sense to use prefabricated composite veneers and seating it with the same material. But they must be completely homogeneous so that they can be finished and individualized, a surface glaze will be counterproductive (Fig 4). Especially in difficult cases with malpositioned teeth it is important to be able to form the surface with rotating instruments. COMPONEER™ is a new concept, with brings the direct veneering technique with composite to a pole position. The concept of “direct Veneering“ is less invasive and with the help of new materials and techniques it can expand the range of indications and takes a new position in esthetic dentistry considering economics and quality.

Fig 5

The unique microretentive surface of COMPONEER™ (2µm) (Fig 5), simplifies the conditioning, because no additional sandblasting or salinization is necessary. In combination with bond and restoration material it leads to a 100% copolymerisation and a monophase, existing in composite. At the end we have a better marginal adaptation, higher fracture resistance and less discoloration (Fig 6). Fig 6

52 Prosthetic Dentistry Do we have to remove older restorations? We can use the componeer as a mold or matrice and it will be placed directly with dentine mass. This technique can also be used for tooth lengthening or closing diastema. Correcting toothform- and position the base of the teeth can be preformed with dentine composite to reach a normal tooth profile. COMPONEER™ has a shallow anatomical surface texture that allows to accentuate the surface individually or to adapt the form to the face and papilla line. A few example shall show how COMPONEER™ behaves, compared to other systems. For an optimized result, a previous diagnostic with composite without tooth-conditioning is recommended (Fig 7 & 8). COMPONEER™ can be a helpful tool if patients can not be definitively restored such like the 10 years old girl with amelogenesis imperfecta, where the treatment has to be fast and efficient without any trauma (Pic.09 &10).

54 Restorative Dentistry In case of malpositioned teeth, wrong toothform (Fig 11), with any other system the teeth has to be prepared more; with COMPONEER™ especially on younger people in combination with compos-

ite, esthetics can be attained minimal-invasively (Fig 12). Edge-to-edge bite leads normally to heavy tooth preparation for traditional veneers (Fig 13 & 14).

56 Restorative Dentistry The following case shows different problems; 14 is too palatal, 13 too buccal, 12 in crossbite, 22 is missing with a small gap to 23, 24 is missing with a small gap to 25 (Fig 15). The tooth #12 was only cut incisally back to solve the crossbite, between 21 and 23 with the help of a fiberband a composite – pontic was preformed and optically slightly overlayed on 23 to maintain the proportion of the teeth; following, the tooth anatomy was completed with COMPONEER™ (Pic.16). In the last case, the patient refused an orthodontic treatment (Pic.17). Using an indirect technique in this case would lead into heavy preparation and devitalisation of teeth. (Pic.18). For the direct restoration with COMPONEER™ only a minimalinvasive preparation was needed (Pic.19). The base of the toothbow was equalized with composite and componeer were placed on the top. Because componeers are completely homogeneous the shape of tooth curvature could be adapted. (Pic.20). The Componeer system has a target to optimize restorative dentistry in that way that patient and dentist can benefit in the same way and emphasizes new possibilities in esthetic dentistry with direct restorations. The main advantage contains the minimal invasive procedure, new indication possibilities and the high potential of individualisation. Less damage potential for more attractivity.

Members of the Organizing Committees His Royal Highness Prince Mashal Bin Majid Bin Abdul-Aziz, Governor of Jeddah Prof. Abdul-Rahman Bin Obaid Al-Youbi, Acting President of King Abdul Aziz University With cordial and sincere greeting, we would like to welcome you from the city of Jeddah, bride of Red Sea, the cradle of the mother of universities. On behalf of myself and my colleagues enrolled in the Faculty of Dentistry in King Abdul Aziz University, we would like to greet you all.

Dean Abdulghani Mira

The planning for this conference and call for sponsors to cover its expenses started immediately after the third conference, the faculty of dentistry worked with all its power for the last couple of years to produce such international conference that can benefit all those who work in the field of dentistry. All members of organizing committees worked together with the leadership of my brother and friend Prof. Ali Thafeed Alghamdi, the vice dean for postgraduate studies and scientific research and the vice president of the conference to select 15 elite international speakers from inside and outside the Kingdom. The conference scientific committee accepted more than 120 scientific papers that discuss the latest development in dentistry and will be presented in digital screens. The conference also hosts 6 workshops and courses for many international distinguished speakers. About 30 companies participate in the conference international exhibition representing more than 150 international agencies. The conference with the workshops has earned 54 CME from the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties. The conference also adopted new technologies with electronic registration and state of the art presentation equipments and was able to recruit about 2000 participants. Moreover, we are expecting significantly large number participants during onsite registration.

Since its inception, Faculty of Dentistry always seeks after excellence until it becomes a highly prestigious establishment of which each and every affiliate is proud. It established many units and academic programs. Further, the Faculty of Dentistry proceeded to develop the academic scheme of the Program of Bachelor Degree in Oral and Dental Surgery in a manner that would be in line with the most recent and modern developments in education and learning. As a matter of fact, Faculty of Dentistry has been the first educational establishment to be academically recognized by the European Organization of DENT ED. It signed several agreements, such as the research agreement signed with the Forsyth Institute that affiliated to Harvard University, and the agreement signed with Tufts University for cooperation in several and various domains.

RAZMIG TATOULIAN, cdt Manager, North-American Digital Support, Zahn Dental

With more than 15 years experience in the dental laboratory industry, Razmig Tatoulian, CDT specializes in supporting CAD/CAM technology and equipment. Raz has dedicated years accumulating knowledge and experience toward understanding today’s software and technology and has experience training, lecturing, and supporting dental laboratories across the country.

What are some of the factors you see lab owners overlook when purchasing different types of hi-tech equipment? The main factor would be continuously overlooking having a solid silent partner beside them for proper decision making. By overlooking a partner like Zahn and focusing on the less expensive offer, they unwillingly compromise the added value that the Zahn brand brings. Added value can be defined as support after sale, quality materials, and competent individuals and consultants to collectively guide them through the path of success.

What type of support do you offer if a piece of equipment goes down? The entire team will work together to quickly resolve your problem and provide a solution for you. For example, we have an outsourcing partner, Custom Milling Center, in Colorado who can manufacture restorations. We also have the ability to provide loaner equipment for instances when we cannot troubleshoot over the phone.

Technology is evolving every day, why is it important to have a partner like Zahn Dental? Considering Zahn Dental is a division of Henry Schein, the ethical and proper approach to everyday distribution, which has been proven for more than 80 years, is naturally transferred to the laboratory side. In today’s competitive global dental market, whether conventional and/or digital, Zahn blends in perfectly in the full digital workflow for all your dental needs by offering product lines from removable and fixed prosthetics to highly advanced digital equipment.

What should customers know about the North American Technical Support Team? Our most important and proud story is that we continuously are growing as a technical support team. We have doubled the number of specialists on our NA team within the last 5 months and will continue to do so considering the importance of daily support needs from our clients.

What do you find most enjoyable when visiting a new customer and helping their business? The most enjoyable moments are when we exceed the customer’s expectations by confirming their decision to deal and trust in Zahn Dental. We are proud of what we accomplish daily and believe we make a difference by being right beside our customers.

When professionals find the time, in the middle of their daily activities and attend a Congress they have, at least, three expectations: • From a human standpoint point: they hope to meet colleagues and friends to exchange and share ideas. • From a scientific standpoint of view: they hope the congress extends their knowledge and contributes to improve their clinical practice. • Finally, they would like to carry out all the above in a pleasant environment.

Pr. Antoine Berberi President of the LSOS

I am fully convinced that our Convention at Le Royal Hotel will achieve these goals. When the council of the Lebanese Dental Association, in 2004, asked me and some of my colleagues to establish the Lebanese Society of Oral Surgery, we accepted the challenge and within one year we succeeded and today we are celebrating our tenth anniversary. During the last ten years we achieved a lot of successful scientific events as already showed you in the video. So on behalf of all the board members and myself, I would like to thank the present and former presidents and council members of the Lebanese Dental Association and of course all of you for your support during the last ten years. Dear Guests, Professors Elie Ferneini, Tara Renton, Tony Daher, Arzu Demircioglu, Frank-Michael Maier, Rana Al-Falaki, Mustafa Dawud, and Reem Hanna. We are honored to have you among us and thank you for being in Beirut, sharing our VITH meeting with the Lebanese Dental Community. Dear Participants, we hope it will be a great opportunity for you to listen, share experiences, and have a pleasant time with us.

Carlos Khairallah, Dr. Andre Assaf, Mr. Ehab Oweini, Dr. Pierre Khoury Dear Colleagues and Friends, I am happy to welcome you all, today, for the 7th annual scientific meeting of the LSProstho. Why the topic of “All-Ceramics Technology in 2015: State of the Art”? It is because of its crucial position in our practice, from both the clinical and laboratory perspectives. It can start from a single simple crown on a natural vital tooth to full mouth rehabilitations on devitalized teeth or on implants for a bruxing patient, with all that it confers to these constructions in terms of benefits and risks. Working with ceramics calls for mastering the choice of material adequate for each specific case, besides the art of occlusal adjustment and high-tech lab work, both conventional and computerized.

Dr. André Assaf, President of the Lebanese Society of Prosthodontics

Setting the learning outcomes of the course this high also means we have to find the right person to cover it. We were lucky enough to be able to convince Professor Nasser Barghi to fly to Beirut from Texas for this purpose. My good friend Nasser was determined to make it possible for us to share his long experience in this field. And what a remarkable experience: not only has he worked on the development of clinical concepts, but also the development of research protocols for new ceramic materials and adhesives. The Lebanese Society of Prosthodontics is celebrating its 7th anniversary. With the years, we have acquired some valuable experience that we would like to share with you. We had made two proposals within the last 12 months concerning the Continuous Education system for specialists. The first proposal concerns CE credit points. We ask that the requirements be increased for the Specialists, and that credit points be divided into direct and indirect categories: • What we mean by ‘Direct’ are those credits that must be covered by topics directly related to the specialty and amount to a minimum of 75% of the total to be completed each year by the specialist. • The remaining 25% percentage can be taken up by general CE topics. By implementing this system, we can ensure specialists are updating their exclusive practice and it can also boost the CE activities of the Scientific Societies and Universities.

The other proposal also concerns dentists registered in the LDA as a specialist in one specific domain. We suggest that scientific Society fees be collected by the LDA, on behalf of the scientific societies, at the time of LDA membership renewal. Every specialist will then systematically become a member of a Scientific Society and it will allow the Scientific Societies to concentrate their efforts on their mission. Finally, some acknowledgements First to the team around me who made our work possible, a team whose mandate extends to March 2016 when a new Board will have to be chosen.

Assistina 3x3 – a class of its own Technological progress from 1890 to today As the first European manufacturer of mechanically operated straight and contra-angle handpieces, W&H started setting trends in the first few years of its 125-year history. A universal handpiece with an adjustable head angle offering flexibility and optimum access to the treatment site for the first time marked the beginning of a string of successes in product development. It was followed by numerous patented systems, the result of intensive research and development activity. With the development of the Assistina cleaning and care unit, W&H became the first manufacturer to offer an innovative solution for mechanical instrument reprocessing in 1992. It gained widespread attention for being so simple to use and cost-effective. Whereas other manufacturers only offered maintenance using a grease gun or oil can, the new W&H product was the first to allow fully automated oil dosing and complete cleaning of spray channels. The consistent employment of state-of-the-art technology and close cooperation with end users allowed W&H to set yet another milestone in the field of instrument reprocessing in 2013: The new product generation Assistina 3x3 saw the launch of the first device on the market to offer automatic internal and external cleaning as well as oil service of turbines and straight and contraangle handpieces. Between one and three instruments can be cleaned and serviced per cycle. The short cleaning process lasting around six minutes ensures excellent cleaning results. Following subsequent sterilization in the Lisa autoclave’s rapid cycle, the instruments are available again after a total of just 20 minutes. Cleaned, serviced and sterilized. This allows dental practices to benefit from considerably shorter and validated cleaning processes and provides them with optimum support in the implementation of the most advanced hygiene concepts. website:

New PIEZOSURGERY® white When Mectron introduced PIEZOSURGERY® in 2001, the technology was revolutionary for bone surgery: a device providing precision, safety, perfect ergonomics and the highest quality to surgeons all around the world.

Made to perform. The pinnacle of ergonomic engineering. Poor posture is a major contributor to shortened dental careers, with one out of four dentists becoming disabled at some point before retirement. In collaboration with dental teams, A-dec has designed two new products to help combat these statistics, and encourage proper posture and positioning all day long: A-dec 500 stools, and a new lever-style foot control. The new feature-rich A-dec 500 stools provide pressure relief support via a dynamic seat assembly that enables good blood flow to the legs, while setting up the lower lumbar for a proper, healthy torso posture. Both the doctor’s and assistant’s stools feature a dynamic seat designed on a suspension frame, which flexes and conforms to the body’s every move. The middle layer of the seat structure is engineered with four individual performance zones for tailored comfort and support. To further customize the stools, easy-to-access paddles are micro-adjustable for each user and task, allowing practitioners to remain in an ergonomically healthy posture throughout the day. “Overall, I believe these new stools can help minimize the discomfort and pain of a very demanding profession,” says Greg Watson, Senior Product Manager. “Dentists use their stool all day, every day. It needs to perform great.” Nine patents are pending on the unique A-dec 500 stool design. To learn more visit A-dec at AEEDC stand 6C01 website:

Bluephase: Two new products for a precise and economic use Ivoclar Vivadent launches the dental radiometer Bluephase Meter II and polymerization light Bluephase Style M8. In order to completely polymerize dental materials, the intensity of the applied polymerization light must be regularly checked. The dental radiometer Bluephase Meter II offers a simple and yet precise solution.

Bluephase Meter II: Universal use With Bluephase Meter II, the light intensity of Bluephase Style can be regularly and reliably checked. In comparison to the gold standard, the Ulbricht sphere, the deviation in measurement is only + 10 per cent. If this radiometer is applied constantly in the daily practice treatments, the long-term success of direct and indirect restorations will be enhanced. Bluephase Style M8: The LED for economical use For the polymerization of some dental material, e.g. fissure sealants, a lower light intensity is required than for the polymerization with composites. As long as these dental materials are completely cured within a wave length range between 430 and 490 nm, a polymerization device of the second LED generation like the Bluephase Style M8 with a light intensity of 800 mW/cm2 can be used. website: Dental News, Volume XXII, Number IV, 2015

G-Premio BOND Believe in zero compromises At GC, we accepted no compromises when developing our new universal bonding system. Most importantly, we refused to sacrifice bond quality at the expense of versatility. So we are proud to introduce G-Premio BOND, a one-component light-cured universal adhesive that achieves outstanding performance with all etching modes and in all situations. We aspire to create high-performing products that make the dentist’s job easier, so it was essential that G-Premio BOND would be compatible with self-etch, selective etch and total etch techniques, and perform equally well in direct bonding cases, repair situations and hypersensitivity treatment. A unique combination of three functional monomers (4-MET, MDP and MDTP), notably excluding HEMA, ensures excellent stability and bond strength not just to tooth tissue but to all indirect substrates, including composites, precious and non-precious metals, zirconia and alumina for all repair cases. When combined with Ceramic Primer II, G-Premio BOND will create a durable adhesion to any type of glass ceramics. Operator error is almost impossible with G-Premio BOND. We have put great effort into making the procedure easy, with low technique sensitivity. That means for instance that the bond strength is not compromised if the waiting time is cut short, drying guidelines are self-explanatory and light-curing is very efficient thanks to the high photo-initiator content. We have even added a visual control to drying & light-curing, with the liquid displaying a yellowish colour before curing and a perfect invisibility after curing. Ultimately, G-Premio BOND is the universal bonding solution for dentists who believe in zero compromises. website:

How is Chemistry important in Dentistry?

Dr. Tony Dib

Maybe one day chemists will find the secret of good human chemistry, the kind of chemistry that makes us better at delivering patient-focused care

I guess I see chemistry as being a crucial part of dentistry in many ways. Dentists use chemistry almost everyday. They use fluoride rinses to fight against decay, they use antiseptic mouthwashes to combat periodontitis, they use whitening gel that reacts with the enamel on the teeth. Dentists also get the help of bonding agents to adhere restorative materials to dentin and they use zirconia, ceramics, glassionomers and composite materials to achieve the ultimate restoration that mimics tooth performance. It is every where in the world around you! Chemists struggle in search of the perfect restorative material and the ways to bond it to tooth structures. New research is being done on possible ways chemistry can be used to target bad bugs in the mouth without killing the healthy cells. It is a great responsibilit y to undertake the role of developing and selecting valuable materials for dental applications that are biocompatible and extend the lifespan of teeth. Chemistry by helping you to understand the world around you may lead to the ultimate prevention methodology that avoids disease. I hope that the dental team down the road can implement ideal treatments with the contribution of hard-working eminent scientists.

Made to perform.

The pinnacle of ergonomic engineering. In collaboration with dental teams, A-dec has designed the new A-dec 500 stools to encourage proper posture and positioning all day long. The new feature-rich stools provide pressure relief support via a dynamic seat assembly that enables good blood flow to the legs, while setting up the lower lumbar for a proper, healthy torso posture. Both the doctor’s and assistant’s stools feature a dynamic seat designed on a suspension frame, which flexes and conforms to the body’s every move. The middle layer of the seat structure is engineered with four individual performance zones for tailored comfort and support.

Introducing the New A-dec 300. Evolved. The A-dec 300 offers a complete solution with the ability to specifically configure for each practice. The new update builds on the current designs by adding features such as virtual pivot to the chair for enhanced patient comfort, and a third delivery system configuration option that precisely fits the needs of the dental team. Built as a modular unit, dentists begin with the chair, and pick and choose the features they want: from delivery system styles and touchpads, to foot controls, lights and monitors. The result is an individualized solution that fits the needs of the dentist, as well as their budget.

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!

TheraCal LC® Resin-Modified Calcium Silicate Pulp Protectant/Liner TheraCal LC is dentistry’s first radiopaque, light-curable flowable composite containing “apatite stimulating” calcium silicates to protect and stimulate pulpal and dentin repair.1,2 It is the ideal replacement to calcium hydroxide, glass ionomer-based or, RMGI materials due to its excellent handling, ease of placement, and its ability to promote healing.1 TheraCal LC performs as a barrier and protectant of the dental pulpal complex. With high physical properties3 and low solubility1,4 immediately following light-cure, TheraCal LC is ideally suited for all deep cavity preparations. Ease of placement is facilitated by a 20 second light-cure and ability to be syringed directly onto the preparation and pulp without pre-mixing or the need for any additional activators. The proprietary hydrophilic resin formulation creates a stable and durable liner. Following placement of TheraCal LC the final restorative may be placed immediately, a significant clinical advantage.

HyFlex™EDM Up to 700% higher fracture resistance Specially hardened surface Less filing required for treatment success The new HyFlex EDM files constitute the 5th generation root canal files. HyFlex EDM NiTi files have completely new properties due to their innovative manufacturing process using electric discharge machining. Workpieces are machined in the EDM manufacturing process by generating a potential between the workpiece and the tool. The sparks generated in this process cause the surface of the material to melt and evaporate. This creates the unique surface of the new Niti files and makes the HyFlex EDM files stronger and more fracture resistant. This entirely unique combination of flexibility and fracture resistance makes it possible to reduce the number of files required for cleaning and shaping during root canal treatments without having to compromise preservation of the root canal anatomy. Just like HyFlex CM files, HyFlex EDM files have the already familiar controlled memory effect (CM). This results in very similar properties in terms of material flexibility and regeneration.

121 WAVEONE® GOLD is the latest generation of reciprocating technology developed by DENTSPLY MAILLEFER in collaboration with four endodontic key opinion leaders (Drs Kuttler, Pertot, Ruddle, Webber). WAVEONE® GOLD, as the successor of WAVEONE®, keeps the same philosophy of simplicity as the first generation that was launched in 2011, with strong additional benefits that enhance the confidence level of dentists. Same WAVEONE® Philosophy: • A single file (Primary) for the majority of canals (~80%) • Same reciprocating motion • Single patient use • A complete solution with dedicated obturation products Strong Additional Benefits: • Covers a wider range of canal morphologies thanks to high flexibility and extended size range: Small, Primary, Medium, and Large • Reinforced safety for the patient thanks to higher cyclic fatigue resistance compared to first generation WAVEONE and reduced screwing effect compared to standard rotary systems • Shorter shaping time compared to the first generation of WAVEONE®

The one Collection

A collection of high performance restorative materials, the ‘one brands’ have been designed for ease of use, while also delivering outstanding clinical results.

The SonicFill™ 2 system enables clinicians to perform posterior restorations with an easy-to-use, one-step procedure that provides everything you need for reliable bulk filling: the adaptation of a Flowable during placement, a high depth-ofcure, low polymerization shrinkage stress and the strength and aesthetics you’d expect from a posterior restorative. SonicFill™ 2‘s composite incorporates a highly-filled proprietary resin with special modifiers that react to sonic energy. As sonic energy is applied through the handpiece, the modifier causes the viscosity to drop (up to 84%), increasing the flow ability of the composite, enabling quick placement and precise adaptation to the cavity walls. When the sonic energy is stopped, the composite returns to a more viscous, nonslumping state that is perfect for carving and contouring. The result: • No Voids, Gaps or Seams • Excellent Marginal Integrity • Outstanding Adaptation to Cavity Surfaces • High Depth of Cure • Excellent strength, polish ability & wear resistance • Low sensitivity to ambient light Dental News Yearbook 2016

Air Turbines Evolve to Become More Powerful Based on the philosophy of consistently delivering products that exceed all expectations, Ti-Max Z Turbines supported by noncompromising NSK product design and ultra-high precision processing technology, provide a new level of comfort to both clinicians and patients like never before. With one of the most powerful air turbines, our technological innovation will revolutionize dental practice.

Dental News Yearbook 2016


PanaAir FX is dramatically more powerful than its predecessors thanks to the combination of NSK’s air turbine simulation technologies. This new model boasts the highest power rating in its class. Solid stainless steel construction allows it to easily withstand continuous autoclaving and thermo-disinfection. Newly designed bearing structure provides greater wear resistance and extended lifespan.

With the built-in dynamic integrated mini power generator, DynaLED Turbines deliver long life, daylight quality LED illumination when connected to any standard non optic air tubing. Clinicians can instantly gain the advantage of LED illumination on their existing or new dental equipment, simply for the cost of the Turbine. NSK has chosen stainless steel for DynaLED Turbines as a high priority for durability and stable, long term function.

Self-generating LED Illumination System

The world’s first 45-degree contra-angle, Ti-Max Z45L provides effortless access to hard-to-reach molars that a standard contra-angle simply can’t match. Two-Way Spray Function

Water Jet


The slim-form Ti-Max Z45L also offers excellent visibility and high operability, creating more space between adjacent teeth and the handpiece body. Ti-Max Z45L’s powerful and consistent cutting shortens treatment time for time-consuming sectioning and thirdmolar extractions compared to standard contra-angles, dramatically reducing stress for both clinicians and patients.

The new Synea Vision turbine with 5x ring LED+ shows that W&H is the technological leader in the LED sector for dental instruments. Dentists benefit from a completely shadow-free view of the treatment field for the first time.

Synea Vision turbine with 5x ring LED+

The new dimension in shadow-free preparation

The 5x ring LED+ of the Synea Vision turbine lets you see more. Five high-intensity LEDs in the small instrument head provide complete light intensity even in the most difficult situations.

Complete elimination of shadows during preparation has long been the unfulfilled dream of many a dentist. In 2014, W&H achieved a technological masterpiece: five high-intensity, pinhead-sized LEDs are integrated in a ring shape into the small head of the new Synea Vision TK-98 L turbine. Dentists benefit from the 100% shadowfree illumination of the preparation site for the first time and patients benefit from improved treatment safety with the new sterilizable 5x ring LED+. The preparation site is not only illuminated from mesial but also from buccal, distal and lingual/palatal at the same time with the new light design. Full light intensity is guaranteed even in the most difficult situations.

Synea Vision turbine meets highest demands An integrated 5x spray with its five outlet nozzles ensures perfect cooling and cleaning of the treatment site. The innovative W&H turbine with its special, scratch-resistant surface coating is particularly robust and maintains the quality of the instrument. A unique ergonomic design and a small instrument head contribute to comfortable and fatigue-free work. The Synea Vision TK-98 L turbine with 5x ring LED+ is the result of intensive research and development. The close cooperation with internationally renowned users during development of the product give the innovative turbine the best possible support in practice routine.

The superiority of the W&H LED concept: Compared with the competing instrument (left), the Synea Vision turbine with 5x ring LED+ (right) offers a 100% shadow-free view of the preparation site.
