Introduction Aphthous ulcers or recurrent aphthous ulcer (RAU) or canker sores are probably the most common1 and affect 5 to 25% of the population worldwide.2-4 The term aphthous is defined as a breach in the oral epithelium which typically exposes nerve endings in the underlying lamina propria resulting in pain and soreness.5-6 Clinically, aphthous ulcer is characterized by shallow round or oval shape7 with a whiteyellow base which is a fibrinous slough,8 a discretely elevated yellowish edge9 and a distinct irregular border with a narrow red halo. Their etiology and pathogenesis are still unclear and much discussed.10 Several factors are suspected including immunological disorders,1,5 genetics, hormonal imbalances, zinc and iron deficiencies, stress, nutritional deficiencies, food intolerances, cigarette smoking and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.11-12 Aphthous ulcers may be single or multiple,10,12 usually occurring on the non-keratinized and mobile mucosa, but are rare on gingivae or palate.11 They are usually painful during first three days and pain may interfere with eating, speaking, and swallowing. Recurrence is common, with 2 or 3 ulcers in each outbreak5,7,13-14 and a threemonth recurrence rate as high as 50%.5 It can also occur as widespread lesions in association with systemic diseases including Behçet’s syndrome, gastrointestinal malabsorption disorders like Crohn’s and celiac diseases and immunodeficiency syndromes such as infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or cyclic neutropenia. The main goal of treatment is to decrease pain, healing time, number and size of the ulcers14 and to increase disease-free periods. Current treatment options include topical agent, systemic and topical steroids, corticosteroids,

Dental News, Volume XXI, Number IV, 2014

cauterization, antibiotics, and mouth rinses containing active enzymes. Laser can be an alternative treatment for aphthous ulcers. Most lasers used are diode, erbium (Er) and carbon dioxide lasers. Diode laser treat recurrent aphthous ulcers15 by photostimulation12 and banding. Their wavelengths between 800 and 980 nm16 primarily absorbed by tissue pigment (melanin) and hemoglobin. However, they are poorly absorbed by the hydroxyapatite and water.12,17 The erbium family offers both hard tissue and soft tissue applications.17 Erbium lasers share a common characteristic of high absorption of the wavelengths by water, hydroxyapatite, and collagen. It results in a “shaving” or “planing” of the tissue that clinically appears different than the deeper penetration ablation process seen with diode lasers.18 The depth of penetration of an Er laser using a 200 to 400 μs pulse width is in the range of 5 to 40 μm, and there is as little as 5 μm of residual thermal damage. This penetration depth is vastly different than the soft tissue lasers (diode, Nd:YAG) where tissue effects can be as deep as 500μm or more. For instance, the collateral damage produced by the Er:YAG laser is minimal because the energy absorbed in water and thermal damage is small (no charring), which may result in improved healing of the area. The carbon dioxide laser (ƪ=10,600 nm) is highly absorbed by water and hydroxyapatite. It has a smaller penetration than the Er and the diode, but like the diode laser it has a thermal effect. Lasers are used in pain relief of aphthous to provide immediate and long term results. This is achieved by two different modalities: “Low Level Laser Therapy” and “Photobanding”.

14 Oral Pathology Low level laser therapy Low Level Lasers Therapy (LLLT) also referred to as “biostimulation” and “biomodulation” was introduced to irradiate cutaneous wounds and to accelerate the healing process.9 However, the term “biomodulation” is more appropriate, since the therapy can not only stimulate, but also suppress biological process.19-20 The clinician must consider which wavelengths are capable of producing the desired effects within living tissues5,21 LLLT have poor absorption in water, and thus penetrate soft and hard tissues from 3mm to up 15 mm. LLLT are designated by several parameters: the dosimetry, the frequency of treatment session and the total doses.21-22 The dosimetry is expressed by J/cm2 and represents energy density. Energy (J) = Power (W) × Time (s) The principles of LLLT are: I) the power must be ranged from 10 up to 500 mw;21 II) pulsed mode delivery will allow some cooling to occur in between pulses;20,23 III) suitable therapeutic

Step

energies range from 1-14 J/cm2; and IV) there is generally no heat or tissue heating involved in this therapy24 Several protocols and different dosimetry have been described while using LLLT in aphthous ulcer treatment. The recommended dosimetry for the treatment of aphthous is 4 to 12 J/cm2.9 In clinically less aggressive lesions, a dosimetry of 4 J/cm2 has proven to be sufficient. However, in larger, ulcerated and more aggressive lesions, the dosimetry should be proportional to the extension of the lesion (maximum of 12 J/cm2 per session). Moritz and collaborators recommend 2 J/cm2. 21 Application mode is punctual, directly on the lesion in case of aphthous up to 5 mm. In larger ones, application should be made around the lesion. The treatment frequency is 2-3 weekly sessions, with a 24-hour interval until remission of pain. The protocol established by van As25 is described in table 1.

Procedure

1

Pick a 400 micron, 5mm 90 degree tip, or 8mm LLLT tip for small to moderate lesions (0.5-2.5cm) and a bleaching handpiece for larger lesions (over 2-3cm)

2

Do not initiate the tip, as the energy must penetrate the lesion. Start defocused mode (5-8mm) and advance towards the lesion (2-3mm away) “painting” the entire surface of the area, and moving away from the lesion if the patient felt warmth.

3

Energy should be 0.6 watt CW (1.2 watts pulsed) for the 1st pass for 30-40 seconds. Rest phase is 15-20 seconds. Rub the lesion to see if pain is less.

4

Energy should be 0.7 watt CW (1.4 watts pulsed) for the 2nd pass for 30-45 seconds. Rest phase is 15-20 seconds. Rub the lesion to see if pain is less.

5

Energy should be 0.8 watt CW (1.6 watts pulsed) for the 3rd and final pass for 30-45 seconds. Rub the lesion to see if pain is less.

6

Use double power settings if using the bleaching handpiece.

16 Oral Pathology Different mechanisms have been suggested for the main therapeutic effects with LLLT. It accelerates wound healing, reduces pain by perhaps stimulating oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria of the neurons and modulates inflammatory responses.6,14,21,23,25 Increased blood flow to local tissues and capillary vasodilatation are effects seen after LLLT. When it is delivered in appropriate dosage, energy of the protons from the LLLT is converted into photochemical, photophysical and photobiological effects. Photoreceptors (cytochrome c-oxidase) can absorb laser irradiation and transfer it inside mitochondria. This stimulates synthesis of ATP (cell energy) which is the product of cytochrome c oxidase and Krebs cycle, leading to increased cell activity26 such as lymphocyte stimulation and activation of mast cells. Also proliferation of various types of cells such as fibroblasts and macrophages is

Dental News, Volume XXI, Number IV, 2014

seen. All these combined factors promote antiinflammatory effects and biostimulatory effects, thus enhancing wound healing as illustrated in fig.1. The use of “hard lasers” in treatment of aphthous ulcers has been successfully reported by several studies. For example, a female patient (50 years old) treated with stress related RAU showed a rapid and long term relief following a CO2 laser application used in continuous mode at 1-1,5 W for 5s.22 Moreover, a total regression of the lesion occurred 4 days after laser treatment compared to 5-7 days with corticosteroid treatment.14,23,25 Other authors have investigated the use of CO2 laser 1W of defocused continuous mode for 5-10 seconds in 15 patients with recurrent aphthous ulcers in comparison to the placebo.28 Both ulcers were covered with transparent gel without the use of anesthesics agent. They observed a significant difference in mean of pain values between the laser and placebo groups measured 24 hours after the intervention was administrated.28 The analgesic effect in LLLT is usually gradual, cumulative, and multisessional. 28 Researchers compared drug therapy, laser treatment and a combination of both over five years found that laser diode used at low levels of energy (200 mW) cut the healing time in half when compared to a pharmaceutical method (Solcoseryl™).29 Authors reported a reduction of the pain after single session of diode laser and a quicker healing using the third generation diode laser technology (940 nm) wavelength which absorbed strongly in hemoglobin and water. This wavelength corresponds to the peak absorption for oxygenated (arterial) blood in this region of the spectrum and also higher absorption into deoxygenated (venous) blood than 810 or 980 nm diode lasers, giving this laser type more efficiency. Diode laser with 940 nm wavelength combines the effect of thermal subablasive lasers with the wanted effect of LLLT.12 Single session of diode laser irradiation can be used to produce immediate, dramatic and sustained analgesic effect on RAU lesions, the lesion duration were significantly reduced to about 40% from that of control lesion.12 Authors reported a reduced recurrence of the aphthous in the same area when treated with LLLT by diode laser.15

18 Oral Pathology Photobanding The technique consists of the formation of a protective layer on exposed connective tissue. Diode, erbium and CO2 lasers can be used to treat aphthous by inducing this layer.30 Diode laser transverses the epithelium and penetrates 2-6 mm into the tissue wherever erbium and CO2 lasers are very superficial. When laser cutting is in progress, small blood and lymphatic vessels are sealed due to the generated heat, thereby reducing or eliminating bleeding and edema. Denaturated proteins within tissue and plasma are the source of the layer termed “coagulum” or “char”, which is formed because of laser action and serves to protect the wound from bacterial or frictional action. During 48-72 hours post banding, this layer becomes hydrated from saliva, swells and eventually disintegrates to later reveal an early healing bed of new tissue.20 This layer acts as a barrier and decreases pain that derives from inflammatory sensitization of small-diameter afferent nerve endings that form a plexus at the junction of the epithelial and subepithelial layers. Branches of this plexus extend upward, into the epithelial layer; thus, aphthous ulcer produces a superficial, focal, inflammatory lesion that is directly associated with exposed sensory nerve endings.12,28 Unlike the erbium tissue appearance, there is no white pox marking and very little visual indication that the lesion is being treated.30

The clinical application of the photobanding technique consisted of one sitting. The protocol established is as following:31

Photobanding with diode laser Step 1: Application of topical gel anesthesia for three minutes Step 2: Flashing of the topical gel anesthesia Step 3: Drying of the ulcers with air spray Step 4: 2–3 watts pulsed 20–50 Hz non initiated tips. The application of the laser was done in non-contact mode with a distance of 2-3 mm between the laser tip and the ulcer surface for about 60 to 90 seconds. The laser beam was applied in a continuous sweeping, circular motion, so as to cover the entire ulcer. This application induced an anesthesia of the superficial layer. Step 5: 0.6–0.8 watt, continuous mode, initiated tips. The surface of the ulcer is painted with the laser with simple fine touching. A black superficial layer is induced by the thermal effect of the diode laser. Fig 2

Photobanding with Er,Cr:YSGG It is the same protocol as the photobanding by diode laser. Step 1: Application of topical gel anesthesia for three minutes Step 2: Flashing of the topical gel anesthesia Step 3: Drying of the ulcers with air spray Step 4: Using the Er,Cr:YSGG laser (2,780 nm) in a non-contact mode, with very low power (0.75 watt) without water. The treatment area should be extended about 1mm outside the lesions boundaries. The laser energy is defocused above the lesion until small white areas are seen on the

tissue, and allowed to remain for 15 seconds while using a circular motion over the entire area. The process can be repeated two or three times until the patient indicates the affected tissue no longer feels uncomfortable. The treatment is stopped when a superficial homogeneous white layer is achieved. This layer is contributed to the formation of superficial denaturating protein layer. However large lesions may need a second treatment within 24 hours. No local anesthesia is required and the patient should get immediate relief.30

21 Oral Pathology Conclusion Oral aphthous ulcers were treated with different topical agents, but these treatments remain symptomatic. The use of lasers in techniques like LLLT and photobanding can be an alternative treatment. In fact, several studies demonstrate that LLLT is an effective modality for the treatment of aphthous ulcers. It reduces healing time and inflammatory reaction and provides immediate pain relief. Since aphthous ulcers are often recurring lesions, further studies reported a reduction of the recurrence of these lesions. Further experimental studies should be conducted comparing LLLT with other routinely used treatment modalities such as topical corticosteroids. New trials on LLLT in oral pathology should make use of standardized, validated outcomes, and should explore how the effectiveness of the LLLT protocol used may be influenced by wavelength, treatment duration, dosage, and the site of application. The main goal of photobanding is to achieve an isolating layer between the terminal nerve endings and the oral cavity. Photobanding with different laser regimens, notably erbium and diode lasers, provides immediate symptomatic relief independently of the parameters used by the operators.

Maxillary Lateral Ridge Augmentation with Autogenous Mandibular Symphysis graft Prior to Endosseous Dental Implant Placement: A case report Dr. Badry Meouchy

Abstract

drmeochy@hotmail.com

Background Pr. Elie Azar Maalouf

Dr. Sami Mouwakdie

Dr. Cherine Farhat

Dr. Khachig Kourshounian

A 33 year old male who have lost his upper anterior incisors due to a car accident several years ago, presented for implant placement. Clinical and radiological examinations revealed an insufficient bucco-lingual width of the edentulous ridge requiring a horizontal bone augmentation prior to implant placement.

Conclusion This case report describes the successful replacement of four missing central incisors following a car accident after a bucco-lingual augmentation of the edentulous ridge.

Keywords Autogenous bone, ridge deficiency, guided bone regeneration, dental implant, immediate temporization

Methods

Introduction

An autogenous bone block graft was harvested from the mandibular symphysis, fixed with titanium miniscrews, covered first with both autogenous and xenograft particles, and second with a resorbable barrier membrane. Six months later, four Astra Tech® implants were placed in the grafted area demonstrating excellent primary stability allowing for immediate temporization. Three months later the final crowns were placed and periapical radiographs were taken after two years following implant placement.

Bone augmentation prior to endosseous dental implant placement in deficient ridges is nowadays a common procedure in dental practice. Because patients’ demands surpassed basic functional needs of having fixed prosthesis alone, an esthetically acceptable prosthesis usually determines the location of endosseous dental implants. A primary diagnostic consideration for endosseous dental implant placement is the amount of available bone in edentulous area. If, for a certain reason, there is a lack of bone to accomplish a prosthetically driven endosseous dental implant placement, then reconstructive procedures are indicated and required. Different methods using different materials have been described in the literature for reconstruction of deficient ridges, including autogenous grafts, bone substitutes, and membrane techniques, but autogenous grafts remain the “gold standard” in the repair of alveolar atrophy and bone defects repair.1,2

Discussion Local grafts from the oral cavity have several advantages on extra-orally harvested grafts as they exhibit little resorption and excellent incorporation at the recipient site. Site development prior to implant placement has become a must in today’s dental practice. Finally implant placement in the anterior maxilla has to meet guidelines proposed in the literature to achieve good esthetics Dental News, Volume XXI, Number IV, 2014

Use of autogenous bone grafts was first described by BrĂĽnemark and co-workers and is still a well accepted technique for major ridge augmentation procedures.3,4 The iliac crest is often used as donor site although other extra-oral (calvaria) 5 and intra-oral (mandibular ramus and/ or symphysis, maxillary tuberosity, etc...) sites have been described.6,7,8 The morphology of a bony defect is an important consideration in the selection of a method for ridge augmentation. Whenever the size of defect permits to and because of frequent morbidity at extra-oral grafting sites, intra-oral grafting sites are preferred.8 Furthermore, there is experimental evidence that intramembranous bone grafts that are placed as block onlay grafts show better volume stability and less postoperative resorption than endochondrial bone obtained from iliac crest.9,10 The results of mandibular block grafts documented in the literature is favorable and encouraging despite certain limitations and patientsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; postoperative temporary neurosensory and functional limited disturbances.11 Block grafts can be harvested from the mandibular symphysis, body and ramus. The different anatomy of these regions results in different graft morphology and volume. So, a proper anatomical and clinical evaluation is needed to decide which site to use to get the best volume and form of bone that corresponds the given defect morphology.6,7

mandibular symphysis, taking into consideration the size and shape of the defect. Also, morphology of the sympheseal block grafts are more corticocancellous compared to bone blocks from ramus or other intra-oral donor sites. This will insure us earlier revascularization and shorter healing time.12

Surgical technique Patient was prescribed a non steroidal anti-inflammatory NSAID (500 mg mefenamic acid 1 tablet Tid) and antibiotic (500mg amoxicillin with 125mg clavulanic acid 1 tablet Tid) for a period of one week starting the day before the surgery. Recipient and the donor sites were anesthetized using articaine 2% hydrochloride 72mg containing 1:100 000 epinephrine bitartrate (Septanest, Septodont, France). At recipient site, a midcrestal incision was performed on the edentulous ridge between the two canines and a full thickness flap was raised to fully expose completely the horizontal ridge defect (fig 4). Fig 4

Case report A 33 year old male who lost his maxillary incisors due to a car accident several years ago, wanted to restore his missing teeth with an implant supported fixed prosthesis. Dentascan evaluation (fig 1) displayed horizontal bony depressions on right and left sides of the midline of the edentulous ridge with enough bone to place fixtures having a diameter of 3.5mm. But, from clinical and prosthetic evaluation, it was obvious that future crowns would have an exaggerated overlap to compensate for normal occlusal relationship, and it would be difficult for the patient to maintain proper oral hygiene in this area consequently. Thickening of these maxillary depressions with an onlay graft was considered before implant placement, to maintain prosthetically accepted crowns with normal occlusal relationship (fig 2, 3). It was decided to harvest bone blocks from the

Access to symphysis area was obtained by an incision at the mucogingival junction extending from distal side of one canine to the other. A full thickness flap was elevated as well exposing the donor site. Next, and with sterile paper templates, dimensions of the grafts to be harvested were determined according to the size of defects. Templates were adapted at the chin area with their upper edge being 5mm below the root tips of anterior mandibular teeth as seen on radiographs. Outline of the grafts were marked with a round bur

and after removal of templates, osteotomy marks were joined together with a fissure bur using a surgical handpiece with copious chilled saline irrigation. Finally, a flat bone chisel was used to harvest bone blocks. Before adapting block grafts (fig 5) to their recipient sites, underlying bone was decorticated and perforated with small round bur to increase revascularization and to improve graft survival.12 Blocks were secured each with two titanium alloy fixation screws (GBR-System®, Straumann Dental, Basel, Switzerland) (fig 6). Inorganic bovine bone substitute was used to fill the gaps around the autogenous bone blocks (fig 7) (Bio-Oss®, Geistlich Biomaterials, Wolhousen, Switzerland) and the whole grafts were covered with a resorbable collagen membrane (fig 8) (Bio-Gide®, Geistlich Biomaterials, Wolhousen, Switzerland). Care was taken for the soft tissue flap to cover the grafted edentulous ridge without any tension and sutured with 4/0 resorbable polyglycolic (Safil, Aesculap AG & Co, Tuttlingen, Germany) continuous locking sutures. Donor site was also sutured without having the need to use any hemostatic material. The partial denture that patient had worn was adjusted in a way not to touch the edentulous ridge, and the patient was told not to chew on. Post- operative instructions were given and the patient was seen after one week for check up. After 6 months another maxillary dentascan showed convex buccal ridge at the recipient site in place of the depressions (fig 9, 10, 11). Clinically the wax up showed acceptable buccolingual positioning of the restoration. A temporary acrylic bridge was fabricated which was also used as a surgical guide. A second stage surgery was performed to remove the fixation screws and to insert three 3.5mmx15mm endosseous dental implants (Astra Tech, Molndal, Sweden) (fig 12, 13, 14, 15).

Immediately after the placement of three endosseous implants 4mm direct abutments were tightened on fixtures (fig 16) (Direct Abutment System, Astra Tech®, Molndal, Sweden). Flap was sutured and immediate temporization was performed (fig 17). Occlusal adjustments were done in order to keep acrylic bridge out of occlusion. Periapical radiographs were taken immediately after (fig 18), and the sutures were removed after a week. Three months later, implants were loaded with final restorations and periapical radiographs were taken after 2 years post insertion (fig 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24) Fig 19

Discussion Local grafts from oral cavity have several advantages, compared to extra-oral grafts. Mandibular grafts are intramembranous in origin which demonstrates accelerated revascularization and healing, compared to endochondral bone grafts. Being cortical bone, they exhibit little resorption and excellent incorporation on the recipient site.10 Another advantage of intra-oral grafts is that donor and recipient sites are in the same operating field. This provides reduced surgical and analgesia time and offers decreased morbidity from graft harvesting compared to extra-oral donor sites.7 However, there are certain local anatomical limitations in harvesting oral grafts. Size of the sympheseal graft is limited by roots of the mandibular anterior teeth and the pogonion, while the primary limitation of the ramus graft is the inferior alveolar nerve canal.13 For this reason, intra-oral grafts can be used only for partial (one to four teeth) edentulous span augmentation.14 Sympheseal graft in particular offers better graft volume and a thicker cancellous component, compared to ramus graft, but is associated with more postoperative complications than ramus graft.7 Dental News, Volume XXI, Number IV, 2014

In a study performed by C.M. Misch, incidence of temporary mental nerve paresthesia in symphysis graft patients was found to be 9.6% and 29% of the patients complained of altered sensation of the incisor teeth.7 Some authors also described soft tissue dehiscence on donor sites, especially when membranes were used to cover grafts. This is the most detrimental complication associated with onlay grafts and it is due to inadequate flap manipulation and lack of tension free soft tissue closure.9 Postsurgical complications in our case were only limited to temporary neurosensory disturbance of the chin with loss of sensation of mandibular incisors. These complications were recovered uneventfully 6 months after surgery. Anorganic bovine bone mineral on the periphery of block grafts appeared well incorporated at the recipient site. Bio-Oss® particles were firmly attached to the newly formed bone. The use of Bio-Oss® is well documented as an inlay bone graft in sinus lift procedures, in extraction sockets, in GTR and in GBR procedures.1 Histological studies performed by several authors showed up to 37% of intimate contact between Bio-Oss® particles and woven bone.7 Hämmerle and co-workers showed 80% direct bone to Bio-Oss® contact when covered with e-PTFE membrane and 89% contact without barrier membrane.16 Zitzman and associates showed in their histological samples obtained from defects filled with Bio-Oss® particles 6-7 months following grafting, that Bio-Oss® particles occupied 31% of the biopsy area.17 Berglundh and Lindhe found 17% of the material after 3 months and 11% after 7 months.18 It is hypothesized that the material participates in the “coupling phenomenon” which is the simultaneous occurrence of bone resorption and bone apposition.14 This means that this material undergoes remodeling similar to host bone, and it is a biocompatible osteoconductive bone substitute that allows new bone formation. However, little is known about the quality of the regenerated bone in the presence of Bio-Oss® particles and about the relationship between the newly regenerated bone and implant surface.17 On the other hand, the quality of the intra-oral block grafts is considered to be type one or two.

34 Implant Dentistry And the placement of endosseous implants into healed bone graft as a secondary procedure is similar to their use in jaws without bone grafts.6,7,10 Placement of endosseous implants simultaneously with bone grafts was followed by complications such as graft detachment, wound dehiscence and higher implant failure rate. Moreover, staged procedure ensures better esthetic results, by optimizing the exact implant positioning.9

Conclusion Intra-oral autogenous block grafts have several advantages over extra-oral grafts: 1) They require shorter healing time compared to extra-oral grafts and bone substitutes. 2) They exhibit minimum resorption. 3) They maintain dense quality of bone (type one or two). 4) Inorganic bovine bone mineral can be used at the periphery and whenever the block size appears inadequate to cover the whole defect. Followed by a barrier membrane to stabilize and protect the particulate graft and to minimize the overall volume loss. 5) However, there are certain limitations concerning size and shape of the graft and some postoperative sensory disturbances for sympheseal graft compared to ramus graft. 6) Symphysis offers thicker graft with more cancellous component than the ramus graft.

Case 1: Porcelain Laminate Veneers (Ahmad Abu-Laban) A 24 year old non-smoker male presented to the postgraduate clinics at Department of Prosthodontics at JUST, complaining of stained long anterior teeth, which he had veneered with composite one year ago. The patient has deep bite and class 1 occlusion (Fig 1.1). Primary alginate impression was made for a diagnostic wax up. Patient was satisfied with the mock up appearance of the maxillary six anteriors, and decided to carry on with porcelain laminate veneers (PLV) procedure. Shade was selected using a Digital Vita shade device (VITA Zahnfabrik, Germany) adjunct to conventional method. A diamond chamfer bur was used to remove the existing composite revealing the underlying enamel, after that a few areas that were carious were minimally restored with composite. A supragingival finish line preparation with incisal bevel was prepared (Fig 1.2). Impression was made in a stock tray with additional silicon (Elite HD+, Zhermack Germany). Laminate veneers were made in the university laboratory using IPS e.max (Ivoclar

the patient. An index was taken and acrylic resin temporary veneers were made for diagnostic reasons (Fig 2.2, 2.3). Patient was satisfied with the appearance and wanted to carry on with the PLV. An overlap veneer design was made with 0.5mm supragingival chamfer finish line. No local anesthetic agent nor retraction cords were used. Impression was made in a stock tray with additional silicon (Elite HD+, Zhermack – Italy) (Fig 2.4). Laminate veneers were made in the university’s laboratory using IPS e.max (Ivoclar Vivadent USA), and sand blasted with aluminum oxide of 50 microns (Fig 2.5). Rely x veneer cement was used according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Final finishing was done a week later (Fig 2.6).

Fig 3.2: Veneers preparation

A 19 year old female patient reported to the postgraduate clinics at Department of Prosthodontics - JUST, with the chief complaint of multiple spacing between anterior teeth and yellowish discoloration (Fig 3.1). The patient refused orthodontic treatment due to its length. Upon intraoral examination, anterior teeth were sound and free of caries with a healthy scalloped gingiva. Maxillary and mandibular impressions were made for the purpose of a diagnostic waxup. Scaling and polishing was carried out. A minimally invasive veneer preparation with 0.5 mm supragingival chamfer finish line was carried out (Fig 3.2). A final impression was made using an additional silicon impression material (Elite HD+, Zhermack – Italy). Lithium Disilicate ceramic (IPS e.max, Ivoclar Vivadent - USA) used to fabricate the veneers. After try-in, veneers were cemented using Rely X veneer cement according to the manufacturer›s instruction. Initial finishing was carried out and completed a week later.

Case 4: Implants (Ala’a Al-Daqaq) Fig 2.6: Cemented veneers

A 30 year old female patient presented to the postgraduate clinics at JUST, for the restoration of BlueSky implant (Bredent medical, Germany) placed 4 months ago at the Department of Periodontics. Intra-oral examination revealed

good plaque control, no gingivitis and low rate of caries. Gingival formers were placed 2 weeks before presentation (Fig 4.1). Clinical osseointegration was confirmed radiographically and by manual examination. Close tray transfer technique was used for taking impression. Additional silicon in a prefabricated metal tray was used to replicate the position of the implants. Gingival mask were placed and impression was poured using die stone. A 15R angled abutment was used for optimal position. Ceramo-metal crown was fabricated, tried and adjusted to the existing occlusion. Implant abutment connection was verified and torqued (35Ncm) and finally cemented with non-eugenol temporary dental cement (Kerr, TempBond) (Fig 4.2).

Case 5: Implants (Lama Alwesi) A 35 year-old female patient with no relevant medical history presented to the postgraduate clinics at JUST, for the restoration of two implants placed in the posterior mandible five months earlier at the Department of Periodontics (Fig 5.1). Dental history included routine dental care, extraction and multiple dental treatments. On extra oral examination, general appearance was within normal, free of any obvious illness or head and neck lesions with an almost symmetrical face. Intraoral examination revealed a healthy oral cavity, with good plaque control. A panoramic radiograph confirmed that bone support was good for all teeth. Two sandblasted large grit acid-etched (SLA) coated implants with 4.8 x 6 and 4.1 x 8 mm (Straumamn dental Implant System) were used with a wider diameter healing abutment. Osseointegration was confirmed radiographically and by manual examination. Alginate impressions of the maxillary and mandibular jaws were taken and a custom impression tray fabricated for use with the abutment-level impression technique. At the subsequent visit, two solid abutments were attached to the implants using abutment driver with final tightening of 35 Ncm (Fig 5.2). Plastic impression copings were placed over the solid abutments and a master impression was recorded in an addition cured polyvinylsiloxane material (Elite HD+, Zhermack â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Italy) (Fig 5.3). A lab fabricated protective resin pattern caps were placed using ZOE cement to prevent covering of the margin by the gingiva (Fig 5.4). At the following visit the splinted Porcelain Fused to Metal crowns were tried and adjusted according to the existing occlusion and finally cemented with ZOE cement (Fig 5.5).

Case 6: All-Ceramic Crowns & RBB (Lama Alwesi) A 32-year old male patient with no relevant medical history presented to the postgraduate clinics at JUST, for restoration of a fractured maxillary lateral incisor, and complaining of multiple unsatisfactory restorations on his long anterior central incisors that affect aesthetic and smile appearance (Fig 6.1). History of chief concern revealed that the tooth was fractured a month ago and had multiple Dental News, Volume XXI, Number IV, 2014

previous restorations. There was no history of pain or discomfort around the affected tooth. The patient did not have any relevant medical problems. Intraoral examination revealed mild gingivitis and moderate rate of caries with heavily stained teeth due to heavy smoking. Multiple problems found in the Maxilla including: poorly designed PFM bridge replacing 4 teeth, long central incisors with multiple composite restorations, fractured maxillary right lateral incisor, missing maxillary right second premolar and carious teeth. Clinical and radiographic examinations were conducted. Intraoral periapical radiograph showed a periapical lesion on the maxillary right central incisor and the maxillary left lateral incisor. The patient presented with a class 1 occlusion with anterior guidance on protrusive movement without posterior contact, canine guided occlusion on right excursion and group function occlusion on the left. A diagnostic wax up was performed to evaluate the esthetic and functional needs of the case, and how to best address the desires of the patient. Jaw relationships, available occlusal dimensions, amount of incisal reduction needed, crown-root ratios, and potential complications were evaluated on a mounted study cast. Tooth preparation was conducted on the study model to evaluate the amount needed to achieve an esthetic result for anterior teeth. The wax up model was presented to the patient for his consideration and following a discussion of all treatment options and alternatives with him, a treatment plan included: referral for treatment of teeth with periapical lesions, cast post for maxillary right lateral incisor, all ceramic crowns for central and lateral incisors with reducing their length by 2mm and Resin bonded bridge (RBB) replacing maxillary right first premolar (Fig 6.2). At the subsequent visit both central incisors and lateral incisor were prepared with a deep chamfer finish line to receive all ceramic crowns. Both maxillary canine and premolar were prepared with chamfers, cingulum rest for canine and mesial occlusal rest for premolar to receive RBB. A master impression was recorded using addition polyvinylsiloxane material (Elite HD+, Zhermack â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Italy). At the following visit all ceramic crowns were tried in.

Finally, the treatment of choice was: All ceramic (IPS e.max®, Ivoclar Vivadent, USA) crowns for maxillary incisors, Porcelain laminate veneers (IPS e.max®) for the maxillary canines, cast post and core for the maxillary right first premolar and the maxillary right first molar, porcelain fused to metal crowns for the maxillary right first premolar and the maxillary right first molar, and porcelain fused to metal 3 unit fixed bridge for the replacement of the maxillary left second premolar. All ceramic crowns and veneers were chosen for the restoration of anterior teeth due to superior esthetic properties of the all ceramic restorations, and porcelain fused to metal crowns for the restoration of posterior teeth due to the well recognized superior physical properties of the porcelain fused to metal restorations. Porcelain fused to metal fixed partial denture was chosen for the replacement of the maxillary left second premolar as the poor bone quantity compromised the option of an implant retained crown. The maxillary left first premolar and molar were prepared for a porcelain fused to metal bridge (Fig 7.2). The final Impression was made using polyvinyl siloxane (Elite HD+ ®, Zhermack SpA, Italy) impression material. Metal try-in of the metal framework was performed, tooth shade was taken, and an interocclusal record was taken using acrylic resin (PATTERN RESIN™ LS, GCA, USA) (Fig 7.3). The final bridge was fabricated, checked intraorally, and cemented with glass ionomer cement (Ketac -Cem, 3M ESPE™, USA) (Fig 7.4). The palatal canal of the maxillary right first premolar and both the palatal and the distobuccal canals of the maxillary right first molar were prepared and a canal space impression was taken for both teeth simultaneously. In the laboratory, a cast post and core for the maxillary right first premolar, and a split cast post and core for the maxillary right first molar were fabricated. Cast posts were cemented using zinc phosphate cement (DeTrey® Zinc, DENTSPLY, USA). On the next appointment, the maxillary right first premolar and the maxillary right first molar were prepared and an impression was taken (Fig 7.5). The porcelain fused to metal crowns were fabricated, checked intraoraly, and cemented with glass ionomer cement (Fig 7.6).

The maxillary incisors were prepared for all ceramic full coverage crowns and the canines were prepared for porcelain laminate veneers and an impression was taken (Fig 7.7). The all ceramic crowns and veneers were fabricated, checked intra orally, and then cemented with resin cement (Variolink® II, Ivoclar Vivadent, USA) according to manufacturer instructions. The patient was pleased, and had a marked improvement in function and esthetics (Fig 7.8).

48 Prosthetic Dentistry Case 8: Resin-Bonded (Mohammad Barakat)

Bridge

A 19 year old male referred from Department of Orthodontics to the postgraduate clinics at JUST, with an aesthetic problem due to missing both central incisors (Fig 8.1). Incisors were lost due to trauma long time ago and orthodontic treatment has been done to align teeth. After orthodontic treatment, the orthodontist placed a removable retainer with two acrylic teeth attached for aesthetic reasons as a temporary solution (Fig 8.2). Following examination a diagnostic wax-up was done, and he following treatment options were suggested: implants, conventional fixed-fixed bridge, or a ResinBonded bridge. Due to financial limitations, A resin–bonded bridge was chosen over Implants. Minimal preparation was carried out on both maxillary lateral incisors with palatal supragingival 0.5 mm finish line and a cingulum rest seat, incisally the finishline was 2 mm below incisal edge. Final impression was taken with polyvinyl siloxane impression material (Elite HD+®, Zhermack SpA, Italy) with plastic stock tray and sent to the laboratory to fabricate a fixed-fixed resin-bonded bridge (fig 8.3-6) At the next appointment, resin bonded fixed partial denture was seated. Marginal adaptation and occlusion were checked then sent to the laboratory to add pink porcelain cervically. Panavia F luting cement (Kuraray Co. Ltd, Osaka, Japan) was used for cementation. Cementation procedure was carried out according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Case 9: Non-metal Posts (Rana AlKhatatbeh) A 19 year old male patient in a good general health, presented to the postgraduate clinics at JUST, Department of Prosthodontics, with extensive discolored composite restorations on his maxillary central incisors teeth (Fig 9.1,2). Clinical examination revealed sound dentition with some incipient caries and moderate generalized gingivitis compatible with plaque accumulation and fair oral hygiene. Radiographic examination of the central incisors showed endodontically treated teeth without any periapical lesions. The teeth have been fractured due to trauma few years ago. Two treatment options were given to the patient: cast post and cores and PFM crown, or fiber posts, composite core, and all ceramic crowns. The advantages and disadvantages of both options were explained to the patient, and the patient was referred to the periodontist to control the gingivitis and evaluation of the periodontium before the prosthetic rehabilitation of his teeth. A diagnostic wax-up was done to evaluate aesthetics (Fig 9.3) The patient preferred the all ceramic option due to superior aesthetics. The teeth were then prepared for fiber posts (Reforpost, Angelus, Brazil) (Fig 9.4), which were cemented using Panavia F luting cement (Kuraray Co. Ltd, Osaka, Japan). After that cores of composite resin cement were built up, the teeth were prepared for all ceramic crowns (Fig 9.5). Impression was taken using PVS impression material. Crowns were made at the university labs. After try-in, crowns were cemented using Rely X cement. (Fig 9.6). Fig 9.5

Conclusion This diversity of cases indicate that the students will have been exposed to a wide range of cases before they have graduated. Though the patients were completely satisfied, there were some unsatisfactory parts of the treatment but does not affect the oral nor dental health of the patients. These limitations were due to the lack of experience of the students. Students were in their first experience in this type of treatment modality.

One machine for dry milling and wet grinding Zenotec select hybrid combines versatility with high precision and process reliability. The innovative Zenotec select hybrid is a state-of-the-art five-axis machining system that is capable of wet grinding and dry milling dental materials. The system is available in two versions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one with and one without a material changer. As a result, the machine can be operated manually or fully automatically to mill materials using a dry or a wet (e.g. IPS e.max CAD) process. The machine is fitted with a specially developed spindle as well as electronic equipment for monitoring the fill level, water pressure, flow rate and filter status to allow efficient, reliable and smooth switching between the dry and the wet operating mode. These features help to ensure the high quality of the machining results. New wet grinding function The new wet grinding function of Zenotec select hybrid accommodates the milling requirements of the lithium disilicate glass-ceramic IPS e.max CAD and the leucite glassceramic IPS Empress CAD. Automatic identification technology enables the IPS e.max blanks to be allocated according to their size and shade in the predefined IPS e.matrix. The Zenotec hydro cooling and filtration system ensures optimum milling results. A high pump pressure reduces tool wear and brushless pump technology lowers the maintenance frequency of the unit. Improved dry milling process The dry milling process is now optimally matched to the zirconium oxide discs of the Zenostar system and therefore produces high-precision results. 8-disc material changer The machine is fully automatic and allows a number of discs to be milled without any manual intervention. Different materials, for example, zirconium oxide, wax and composite resin, can be automatically milled in succession with the 8-disc material changer. Specialized in all-ceramics As a dental manufacturer specializing in all-ceramic restorative materials, Ivoclar Vivadent is constantly moving in new directions to provide exciting, innovative products and systems. This is also reflected in the takeover of Wieland Dental. As a result, Ivoclar Vivadent is now in a position to provide an even wider range of CAD/CAM materials and equipment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in keeping with its commitment to offering dental professionals worldwide the most advanced technologies and products of the highest quality standards. website: www.ivoclarvivadent.com

NEW SINUS PHYSIOLIFT® II Fig 1

Fig 2

Fig 3

SINUS LIFT BY CRESTAL APPROACH –NOW FOR A WIDER RANGE OF PATIENTS The replacement of lost teeth with implant-prosthetic restoration may sometimes be a problem for clinicians, due to the absence of a sufficient bone quantity. Among the multiple choice of techniques available for a suitable bone restoration in the maxillary area, the Sinus Physiolift® approach allows a minimally invasive sinus floor elevation by crestal approach, using hydrodynamic pressure and bone graft substitute. The principle of incompressibility of liquids and the uniform, progressive distribution of pressure within their physical structure , suggested the author to use the hydrodynamic pressure to obtain the sinus membrane’s elevation (hydrodissection). The use of piezoelectric inserts and the conic-shaped sinus elevator CS1, guarantees a watertight system in a way that the pressure of the physiological solution, contained in a dedicated instrument called Physiolifter, effectively detaches the sinus membrane. By the use of a specifically shaped new CS2 elevator, the membrane elevation can be also performed in cases where the bone is insufficiently mineralized and watertightness is not perfect, with consequent leakage of the physiological solution; a great support for the operator and a higher guarantee of success! Furthermore, brand-new insert P2-3 SP represents the chief innovation for the erosion of basal cortex as its conical shape reduces any risk of accidental membrane perforation. The preparation for CS1 elevator, allowing the access to the membrane, is performed with piezoelectric inserts IM1 SP and IM2 SP (fig 1) and diamond-coated insert P2-3 SP (fig 2). In case the CS1 elevator doesn’t guarantee a watertight system due to an inadequate mineralized bone (D3, D4) or implant site overpreparation, it will be necessary to use the CS2 elevator, inserted by an implantology contra-angle (fig 3) Once the elevator is inserted, tube and syringe are connected to the elevator, allowing the membrane’s elevation thanks to physiological solution contributed step by step with the Physiolifter into the sinus (fig 4, 5). When the Schneiderian membrane is elevated, it will be possible to insert the grafting material and eventually place the implant (fig 6). Thanks to the piezoelectric bone cutting technology and the crestal elevators it is possible, by means of hydrodynamic pressure, to cover a wide range of clinical situations that need sinus elevation. This all with ease and minimum invasivity, and a consequent minimal discomfort for the patient. website: www.mectron.com Fig 5

Ivoclar Vivadent introduces the new luting composite Variolink Esthetic to the market The new luting composite Variolink Esthetic is an esthetic light- and dual-curing composite material for the permanent cementation of demanding ceramic and composite restorations. The material represents the next generation of the well-established, esthetic luting composite Variolink. This new composite is characterized by its combination of exceptional esthetics and user-friendly processing. To ensure precise shade matching of the restoration with the surrounding dentition, the manufacturer has developed the «Effect» shade system. This new system includes five different shades, which enable colour-neutral cementation in addition to luting with brightening or darkening of the restoration. The reactive and patented light initiator Ivocerin safeguards the material’s exceptional shade stability. website: www.ivoclarvivadent.com

Move into the new factory Medesy is hugely investing in new technologically advanced machineries therefore a bigger factory became a must: during August 2014 Medesy moved to the new factory, where we have installed some last generation machineries and internalized the artisanal works that until now were made by Medesy’s artisans in their own small factories. This way Medesy will increase its monitoring during all phases of production, assuring you the production of highest quality instruments as well as fastest deliveries. The new building, in an area of 20.000 sqm, is divided into production area and administration area. There is an area dedicated to the exhibition room, to host seminars and as a lounge for our guests and employees. The move into the new building is another milestone in Medesy’s history and a valuable commitment to the production location in north-Italy website: www.medesy.it Dental News, Volume XXI, Number IV, 2014

G-aenial Family from GC sG-aenial Anterior & Posterior G-ĂŚnial is one of the rare composite materials that can be really qualified as being user-friendly, not only because of the shade concept, but because it is a unique composition that offers effortless manipulation. Consistency and working times are accommodated to all restorative classes. sG-aenial Universal Flo an innovative concept in composite restorative New concept, new composition: the art of injectable composite G-ĂŚnial Universal Flo benefits from a composition that features a unique filler technology. It has a higher filler load and a homogeneous dispersion of fillers. The resulting improved strength and wear resistance are two key features of this product, opening up the potential for a broader use than standard flowables and making it more suitable for class I to V restorations. Essentially, it looks like a flowable but behaves like a restorative. Its indications are for direct restorations, minimum intervention cavities and fissure sealing. sG-aenial Bond One bonding agent, two choices Offering a selective etching approach, G-ĂŚnial bond offers the best of both worlds: the simplicity and reduced post-operative sensitivity of a self-etch adhesive together with the greater bond strength that was traditionally found only with etch & rinse adhesives. It is a reliable bonding that had proven its efficiency and durability via several studies.

EDITORIAL There is nothing permanent except change. Heraclitus In our today’s world, technological advancements are far from being limited to specific fields. Just like computers, cars, telecommunications and other sectors, Dentistry is witnessing phenomenal innovations, transforming people’s smiles and lives in each and every way.

Only who expect the unexpected can see the future.

Expecting the unexpected is somehow true in our specialt y.

Visionaries have long dreamed of digital intra oral impression, then sending the impression by “e-mail”, and having their work designed and executed by a master dental technician in his remote laboratory, or growing teeth from stem cells, and the list is long. Today, they see their dreams come true. While the current products will most certainly change over time, I believe that the advice by the dental team on treatment planning, managing oral health and interacting with patient’s demands will remain relevant regardless of technology changes.

Above all, Dental professionals should design an entire ethical roadmap of how to maintain good health.

As Oral health affects people physically and psychologically, affecting how they look, speak, chew, taste food, socialize and enjoy life , and overall, their entire feeling of social well-being.

Be open-minded and compassionate, and keep dreaming! Dr. Tony Dib tony.dib@dentalnews.com Dental News Yearbook 2015

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. It is the ideal replacement to calcium hydroxide, glass ionomer-based or, RMGI materials due to its excellent handling, ease of placement, and enhanced regenerative properties. TheraCal LC performs as a barrier and protectant of the dental pulpal complex. With high physical properties and low solubility 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.

Sensitive teeth

Application

Tooth sensitivity is a frequently occurring problem. Large numbers of people are tormented every day by sensitive elements such as exposed dentine or as a result of a whitening treatment. Existing treatments, with special tooth pastes, fluoride, calcium phosphate etc. quite often provide only temporary and rather poor relief. On the other hand, solutions that do provide long-term relief – for example the ones including glutaraldehyde – are seen as radical or unappealing because of their aggressive nature. So, what is an appropriate solution to this painful problem?

Cavex Bite&White ExSense, originally developed to eliminate sensitivity after whitening treatments, has proved to be highly effective in relieving tooth sensitivity in general. The product can be applied in various ways, depending on the nature of the sensitivity. One very effective method is to use a ‘tailor-made tray’ filled with Cavex Bite&White ExSense and allow the elements to ‘bathe’ for 10 minutes in the curative conditioner. If the complaint is more localised, Cavex Bite&White ExSense can also be applied very effectively to the sensitive spot with the tip of a finger. Whatever method is used, the result is always the same: quick relief from sensitivity.

The perfect solution Cavex Bite&White ExSense offers fast and long-lasting relief for sensitive teeth thanks to an innovative cocktail of hydroxyapatite and ‘hydro-dispersing clay’. The unique properties of the hydro-dispersing clay ensure accelerated dispersion as well as giving a penetration boost to the hydroxyapatite. Thanks to the synergetic composition of Cavex Bite&White ExSense, the hydroxyapatite penetrates extra deeply into the tubili and micro-cracks in the enamel. This means that these are sealed off completely, while at the same time, a process of crystallisation helps to restore micro-hardness and accelerates the remineralisation process.

For everyone Cavex Bite&White ExSense is exclusively available from dentists and dental hygienists. Thanks to its natural composition, the patient can safely use Cavex Bite&White ExSense themselves (at home) so that sensitive teeth become no more than a painful memory. Cavex Bite&White ExSense, a blessed relief for sensitive teeth.

AFFINIS Perfect Impressions AFFINIS offers an innovative surface affinity and optimized flow properties which lead to perfect impressions. The premium ASilicone is characterized by best wetting properties of teeth and gingiva. Even in a moist environment AFFINIS flows like a hydrocolloid into the narrowest areas and the deep sulcus without applying pressure. The self contouring consistency avoids air entrapments that can consequently lead to trapped air voids and distortions. The thixotropic behavior of AFFINIS delivers excellent stability and does not drip from the tooth. With its universal product range AFFINIS offers the right material for every indication. s)NNOVATIVESURFACEAFFINITYANDOPTIMIZEDFLOWPROPERTIES s"ESTWETTINGPROPERTIESOFTEETHANDGINGIVA s&LOWSLIKEAHYDROCOLLOIDINTOTHENARROWESTAREASANDTHEDEEP sulcus without applying pressure s3ELFCONTOURINGCONSISTENCYWHICHAVOIDSAIRENTRAPMENTS s4HIXOTROPICBEHAVIORDELIVERSEXCELLENTSTABILITYANDDOESNOT drip from the tooth sUniversal product range offers the right material for every indication

Fill-Up!TM In a single step to give a perfect result The tooth coloured, fluorescent and radiopaque bulk composite is a perfect amalgam replacement and alternative to glasionomer cements and compomers – combining the advantages of resin-based composites and a simplified and time-efficient handling. Owing to its dual curing properties, fillings with Fill-Up! can be administered in arbitrary filling depth without the need of a covering layer.

Welcome on the safe side! Conventional light curing bulk filling materials are limited in their curing depth, putting into question whether the restoration fully cures. On the contrary, the dual curing property of Fill-Up! guarantees a thorough curing down to the bottom of the cavity. Moreover, chemical curing minimises shrinkage stress dramatically, preventing micro fractures and postoperative sensitivities. As supported by study, the bonding partner ParaBond caters for a perfect marginal seal comparable to the one of conventional composites - before and after thermo cycling and chewing abrasion – ensuring a secure long-term restorative solution.

Convenient and fast Fill-Up! is applied in a single layer and finished with rotary instruments. The material is easy and quickly polishable to a high gloss and therefore is the perfect choice for all Class I and II fillings, cavity lining and core build-ups – wherever a fast and a esthetic restoration is required.

Dürr Dental compressed air and suction systems have made the company one of the global market leaders in dental medicine.

The new Tyscor suction system generation has an impressively high level of energy efficiency

A good fifty years ago, the possibilities for ergonomic dental treatment reached a whole new level - with suction systems from Dürr Dental that were tailored to the needs of dental surgeries. Since then, the company has been constantly improving its technology. Dürr Dental’s engineers have now devised a completely new way of approaching things. The upshot of this new strategy can be seen in a particularly efficient generation of dental suction systems. They’re quieter, smaller, lighter, reduce energy consumption by up to 50% and are called “Tyscor “. Tyscor suction machines are characterized by the usual reliability of all Dürr Dental products. They demonstrate a high level of failure safety and are low-maintenance. Ingeniously, they completely blend into the background - especially since the Tyscor generation works even more quietly than its predecessors.

In the areas of compressed air, suction, imaging, dental care and hygiene, this innovative leader provides many system solutions. Dürr Dental sets the benchmark with its developments and has the right choice of products for all requirements. To achieve the best possible quality our manufacturing is done almost exclusively in Germany. Our greatest advances have been in digital diagnostics: high quality intraoral images with VistaCam as well as high quality digital radiographs with VistaScan imaging plate system.

The Tornado generation

Powerful, quiet and economical Now also available for four operators Air compressor systems by D端rr Dental have been renowned for decades for their sturdiness, strong, durable performance and the highest quality standards. The new Tornado 4 combine all the advantages of their predecessor models: dental air of the highest quality, excellent sturdiness and lasting value. The Tornado 4 is supplied with a membrane-drying unit. This enables uninterrupted operation around the clock. At the same time the systems guarantee the highest standards of hygiene, among other things, through the use of an anti-bacterial inner coating on the pressure tanks. These features mean that the Tornado 4 compressor is powerful and economic enough to supply up to six treatment rooms and four operators simultaneously.

The VistaScan Mini View with touch display. Compact, high resolution and intuitive to use. Obtain digital radiographs in high resolution with the VistaScan Mini View. The D端rr Dental image plate scanner has a large touch display which can also be used to operate the ScanManager. The ScanManager will optimise the surgery workflow. The radiographs can be displayed on the high definition touch screen. The possibilities of working with WiFi or wired network, with or without a PC means greater flexibility. The VistaScan Mini View is able to process all intra-oral film sizes. If surgeries also require extra-oral images, the VistaScan Combi View digitises intraoral sizes S0 to S4 as well as large panorama and ceph images. As a larger version of the VistaScan Mini View, it has the same innovative functions.

Sonic Fill is the first and only easy-to-use, single-step composite system that doesn’t require an additional capping layer.

Simply place a single increment, contour, cure for 20 seconds and polish. It really is that fast!

Hyperion X9. PAN + Ceph + 3D HYPERION X9 is a modular concept, offering every possible option, from two-dimensional panoramic imaging, to cephalometric analysis, down to cone-beam three-dimensional tomography, including capability of carrying out full dental arch volumetric scans.

The advantage of an open platform lies in the fact that it can be updated at any time. If the initial need is for simply a high quality panoramic imager, HYPERION X9 can carry out a series of two-dimensional exams, either conventional or advanced. Then, when the time comes to add on cephalometric and/ or three-dimensional volumetric options, there is no need to worry: the supplementary facilities of the X9 platform can be added on simply and quickly in situ.

Clean inside â&#x20AC;&#x201C; clean outside In the new Assistina, W&H is launching, onto the dental market, a fully automatic cleaning and maintenance unit for dental handpieces. With the new unit, W&H is setting new standards in hygiene and maintenance and is offering a unit that is optimal for internal and external cleaning* and for the lubrication of turbines and straight and contra-angle handpieces**. Now dental practices can concentrate on what is really important: your patients. The fully automatic Assistina 3x3 takes over the time-consuming process of preparing turbines and straight and contra-angle handpieces for sterilization. Automatic internal cleaning During internal cleaning, the spray channels and gearing components of the instruments are cleaned with the special cleaning solution W&H Activefluid. Spray channels and gearing components are blow-dried to remove residues of cleaner. The thorough cleaning ensures that instruments operate correctly throughout their service lives. Automatic external cleaning W&H Activefluid cleaning solution is sprayed directly onto all instruments one by one. After allowing the cleaning solution to work for a short time, the instruments are blow-dried before the precise and automatic lubrication of the gearing components. Removing organic deposits ensures the safety of patients and staff and in combination with the subsequent sterilization guarantees perfect preparation. Perfect instrument lubrication The precise lubrication of all gearing components with W&H Service Oil F1 extends the service life of precision dental instruments. Service costs are also reduced. The automatic oil feed supplies exactly as much oil as is required for optimal lubrication of the instrument. W&H Service Oil F1 is a product of W&H research and guarantees optimal maintenance for all W&H instruments. Instruments maintained in record time One to three instruments can be cleaned and maintained per cycle. The short cleaning process â&#x20AC;&#x201C; corresponding to the recommendations of the Robert Koch Institute and Swissmedic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; of approximately six minutes reduces the total conventional preparation time of instruments. With subsequent sterilization in the Lisa autoclave, the instruments are ready for use again in just 20 minutes: cleaned, maintained and sterilized. Hygiene and care at the press of a button The operation of the Assistina is intuitive; preparation starts at the press of a button. Training is not necessary. Dental News Yearbook 2015
