    The main of our study was to check the sealing of second mandibular temporary molar pits and fissure, in vitro, with the laser of Nd: YAG, phosphoric acid at 37% and the glass ionomer cement (CIV, Fuji IX GC).The proposal was to check the structural morphologic changes in the laser irradiation upon the enamel surface to watch the pits and fissure sealing with the glass ionomer cement use after the laser irradiation and to verify the efficiency of the 'double conditioning' (phosphoric acid + Nd: YAG). At the same time we watch the evolution of the temperature in the pulp chamber's inside. Our desire was to achieve a therapeutic alternative technic to prevent the dental caries. The Nd: YAG laser parameters were the same: 79 mJ of energy per pulse; frequency of 5 Hz; mean power of 0,4 W; optical fiber on contact of 320 {mu}m diameter; fluency of 99,52 J/ cm{sup 2}, assuming that the only differential was the time of the laser application on the enamel surface. The samples were prepared with this way: Laser Nd: YAG (53 second) + acid + CIV (Fuji IX); Laser Nd: YAG (53 s); Laser Nd: YAG (20 s + 20 s) + acid + CIV; Laser Nd: YAG (20 s + 20 s); Acid + CIV; Control. Through the scanning electron microscopy (MEV) we noticed fusion and resolidification regions due to the laser irradiation and a better adaptation of the glass ionomer cement when we did the 'double conditioning'. Concerning the temperature increase we can conclude that the echeloned period was the best recommended because the temperature was found in a pattern that would not cause any damage to the dental pulp. For future studies we suggest a longer relaxing time between the laser irradiation, a comparative study of this method with other lasers, the use of other sealing materials and the study with the permanent teeth.

MÉTODOS: foram utilizadas 40 radiografias ortopantomográficas de indivíduos, de ambos os gêneros, que não receberam tratamento ortodôntico, divididos em dois grupos: Grupo I, constituído por 20 radiografias que não apresentavam os terceiros molares inferiores; e Grupo II, formado por 20 radiografias com os terceiros molares inferiores presentes. RESULTADOS E CONCLUSÕES: a análise dos resultados e a análise estatística permitiram concluir que ambos os grupos exibiram pré-molares e molares inferiores mais angulados em sentido mesial, quando comparados à oclusão normal. Por outro lado, a angulação mesiodistal de caninos inferiores mostrou-se semelhante àquela apresentada em casos de oclusão normal.

Beside [...] s, the values of the mesiodistal axial angulation of these teeth were compared in these two situations. METHODS: Forty panoramic x-rays were used from individuals of both genders that didn't receive orthodontic treatment, divided in two groups: Group I, constituted by 20 x-rays that didn't present the third inferior molars, and Group II, formed by 20 x-rays with the presence of the third inferior molars. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: The results analysis and the statistical analysis allowed to conclude that both Groups exhibited inferior premolar and molars more angled in mesial direction when compared to the normal occlusion. On the other hand, the mesiodistal axial angulation of inferior canine teeth was similar to the presented in cases of normal occlusion. The two groups, when compared amongst themselves, exhibited similar angular values of the canine teeth, premolar and inferior molars, so that the presence of the third molars didn't exercise influence on these dental angulations.

    Full Text Available Freqüentemente a movimentação ortodôntica exige recursos adicionais de ancoragem. Os mini-parafusos têm-se apresentado como uma possível solução. O propósito deste trabalho foi estabelecer um método para a verticalização de molares inferiores inclinados para mesial, utilizando ancoragem em mini-para [...] fusos colocados na região de linha oblíqüa externa da mandíbula. Foram selecionados três pacientes entre 40 a 48 anos (dois do gênero feminino, um do gênero masculino), com molares inferiores inclinados para mesial e distalmente posicionados às áreas edêntulas. Os pacientes foram tratados ortodonticamente durante um período de 6 a 12 meses, com técnica ortodôntica MD3. Mini-parafusos de titânio foram colocados bilateralmente com anestesia local. Uma incisão sobre a linha oblíqüa externa da mandíbula, medindo aproximadamente 1 cm foi realizada em cada lado, distalmente aos molares inclinados. Após descolamento muco-periosteal, mini-parafusos foram implantados e foram realizadas suturas deixando suas cabeças exteriorizadas. Uma semana após a remoção das suturas, cargas ortodônticas (entre 150 a 200 gramas/força) foram aplicadas através de forças elásticas. Verificamos que alguma inflamação foi observada ao redor dos mini-parafusos, mas foi controlada com procedimentos de higienização. O procedimento cirúrgico é simples, podendo ser realizado pelo ortodontista; as formas dimensionais dos mini-parafusos são adequadas e estes são de fácil remoção após uso. Concluímos que o uso de mini-parafusos representa uma alternativa efetiva de ancoragem ortodôntica na verticalização de molares inferiores. Abstract in english Tooth movement frequently requires additional anchorage resources. Mini-screws have been used as a possible solution to this matter. The purpose of this study was to establish a method of mandibular molar uprighting, using mini-screw as anchorage, positioned on the mandibular external oblique line, [...] behind and posterior to the tooth. Three pacients with ages between 40 and 48 years old (two females and one male) were selected. The three of them presented mesially tipped molars, positioned posterior to the edentulous areas, on both sides of the mandible. These patients received orthodontic treatment during a period of 6 and 12 months with the MD3 technique. Titanium mini-screws were positioned bilaterally, under local anesthesia. One incision with 1 cm was done in each side of the mandibular external oblique line, distally to the tipped molars. After that, the mini-screws were positioned and sutures were done, leaving the mini-screws heads exposed. After one week, orthodontic loads (between 150 and 200 grams/force) were applied to the mini-screws through elastics. A certain degree of inflammation around the mini-screws was noticed, but it was controlled by hygienic procedure. This surgery procedure was simple and could be done easily by the orthodontist. The dimensions and shapes of the mini-screws proved to be appropriate and their removal after the orthodontic movement were done without difficulty. The result was time reduction on the molars uprighting, without side effects on the others teeth. The use of mini-screws seems to be a good alternative for an effective orthodontic anchorage on the uprighting mandibular molars.

  14. Clinical efficacy of computed tomography and coronectomy for prevention of postoperative inferior alveolar nerve injury occurring after impacted mandibular third molar surgery

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Our aim was to evaluate the clinical efficacy of computed tomography and coronectomy for preventing postoperative inferior alveolar nerve injury after impacted mandibular third molar surgery. Among the patients who visited Kawasaki Medical School Hospital between January 2009 and December 2010, 12 patients with high-risk signs of inferior alveolar nerve injury on panoramic imaging were examined for the extraction of impacted mandibular third molar by computed tomography (CT). CT examinations were performed in order to examine the relationship between the root apex of impacted mandibular third molar and inferior alveolar canal for 16 teeth. Based on the imaging findings, the patients were informed about treatment methods and their consent was obtained. We compared the CT and panoramic findings and discussed the relationship between the impacted third molar and the inferior alveolar nerve. Medical records were also examined for the presence of abnormal postoperative complications. Interruption of the cortical white line of the inferior alveolar canal was identified in 13 panoramic radiographs, and bending of the inferior alveolar canal was observed in 2 panoramic radiographs. CT findings indicated type 2 inferior alveolar nerve proximity in 13 teeth, and there was no proximity in 3 teeth. The observation was selected in 10 teeth showing nerve proximity in CT findings. Traditional third molar removal was performed for the 3 teeth with no nerve proximity. Coronectomy was with no nerve proximity. Coronectomy was performed in 3 teeth with nerve proximity. The clinical course was uneventful. To prevent inferior alveolar nerve injury, coronectomy may be a better means of removing the crown of an impacted third molar while leaving the roots intact, in cases where teeth might be in proximity with the inferior alveolar nerve.

    Iatrogenic origin of neurosensory dysfunction is a distressing sequel to the surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molars, which is frequently overlooked. According to various surveys, the rate of neurologic complications related to the surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molars varies between 0.5% and 1% for permanent damage and 5% and 7% involving temporary damage. Prevention always stands as the best modality to avoid patient's discomfort and lawsuits by sophisticated consumerism.Preoperative assessment of the topographic relationship of the impacted mandibular third molar to the inferior alveolar canal has been performed by different imaging modalities. However, none of the imaging techniques give cent percent information. The best available imaging modality in time and resources should be adopted by the surgeon to avoid complications and lawsuits. Orthopantomography has often been cited as the imaging modality of choice before surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molar. However, it depicts a two-dimensional view of an intricate three-dimensional anatomic relationship and also fails to accurately project the buccolingual relation between the tooth and the inferior alveolar canal. The current study was designed to evaluate the potential advantages of spiral computed tomography and compare its efficacy as a presurgical planning tool with orthopantomography in patients with impacted mandibular third molars showing proximity to the inferior alveolar canal on an orthopantomogram.

    Full Text Available La cirugía de terceros molares constituye en la práctica de la cirugía oral y maxilofacial, una de las intervenciones más realizadas. Las indicaciones son variadas, desde medidas profilácticas hasta grandes lesiones osteolíticas. Algunas de las consecuencias después de dicha intervención son; edema, trismus y dolor postoperatorio. En la técnica quirúrgica, el colgajo cobra gran importancia a la hora de minimizar estas consecuencias. El objetivo del presente estudio es evaluar el postoperatorio de la cirugía de terceros molares mandibulares incluidos, utilizando un colgajo lineal en un lado y un colgajo triangular en el otro lado del mismo paciente. Se realizó un estudio prospectivo en 15 pacientes de la Facultad de Odontología de la Universidad Mayor. Se tomaron registros fotográficos estandarizados y se midió la apertura bucal máxima pre-quirúrgica de cada paciente. Se registró el edema, la limitación de apertura bucal y el dolor a las 48 horas y a los 7 días, además del tiempo intraoperatorio. Todos los datos fueron analizados estadísticamente. No existen diferencias significativas en el edema, limitación de la apertura ni dolor al utilizar ambos colgajos. Tampoco existe correlación entre el tiempo operatorio y las tres variables estudiadas. El postoperatorio de la cirugía de terceros molares mandibulares incluidos es similar al utilizar un colgajo lineal o un colgajo triangular. El cirujano puede optar por uno o el otro indistintamente, según su preferencia.One of the most common procedures in the field of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is third molar surgery. From prophylactic measures to large osteolytic lesions, there are various indications. Some of the consequences of this procedure are; edema, trismus and postoperative pain. Flap design is an important feature of surgical technique that plays a vital role in minimizing these consequences. The objective of this study is a post operative evaluation of included third molar jaw surgery using a linear flap on one side and a triangular flap on the other side of the same patient. A prospective study of 15 patients from the Dentistry College at the Major University was carried out. Before surgery standard photos were taken and maximum oral opening was measured for each patient. The edema, maximum oral opening and pain were measured 48 hours and 7 days after surgery. All of the data were analyzed statistically. There are no significant differences in the edema, ability to open the mouth or the level of pain using the two types of flap. There also is no correlation between the operation time and the three variables studied. The postoperative edema, pain and trismus after included third molar surgery are similar when using linear or triangular flap designs. The surgeon can choose one or the other indistinctly, according to his/her preference.

    Objectives To assess the validity of the vertical tube-shift method using intraoral periapical radiography (IOPAR) for determining the relationship between the mandibular third molar roots and the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) canal in comparison with cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). Materials and Methods Fifty impacted mandibular third molars were analyzed using the IOPAR vertical tube-shift method and CBCT. The relationship of the IAN canal to the impacted mandibular third molar was recorded as buccal, lingual or in line with the apex and was compared with CBCT findings. The sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV), and negative predictive value (NPV) of the vertical tube-shift method in depicting the relationship (buccal/lingual/in line with the apex) of the IAN canal to the third molar root apex was calculated. Results The sensitivity and specificity PPV and NPV of the IOPAR vertical tube-shift technique was found to be highest for a lingual relationship (100%) followed by buccal (94.4%, 92.3%, 97.1%, and 85.7%) and in line with the apex relationship (88.9%, 95.0%, 80.0%, and 97.4%) of the IAN canal with the third molar root apex, respectively. A statistically significant association was observed between the IOPAR vertical tube-shift method and the CBCT with a P-value <0.01. Conclusion The vertical tube-shift method can be used as an effective diagnostic tool in assessing the relationship of the IAN canal to the third molar root apex with high sensitivity, specificity, PPV, and NPV.

    Full Text Available Background/Objective: Extraction of the third lower molar tooth is one of the common surgical procedures that may lead to the damage of the infra-alveolar nerve. This damage could be related to deep impacted third molar teeth and roots close to the mandibular canal. Therefore, the radiography evaluation of the position of this tooth in relation to the inferior dental canal is important before surgery."nPatients and Methods: In this cross-sectional descriptive study, 59 patients who were referred to maxillofacial surgeons for third molar tooth surgery, and had a panoramic radiography were enrolled into the study. The positions of the impacted teeth in the panoramic radiography were determined according to their relation to the mandibular canal and were reported as five different subgroups (A, B, C, D and E. Cases which were not classified in any of these subgroups were considered as F. The surgeon also determined the position of the impacted teeth after surgery based on the mentioned classification. To assess the correlation of the data, Kappa analysis was used."nResults: Kappa statistics for agreement between radiography and surgery was 0.85 (p<0.001."nConclusion: According to this study, radiological assessment before third molar tooth surgery can reduce the risk of conceivable damage to the canal and nerve. It is recommended to consider the radiologists opinion before surgery.

  5. High-resolution dental magnetic resonance imaging of inferior alveolar nerve responses to the extraction of third molars

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The objective of this study was to assess whether signal changes can be detected in the neurovascular bundle of the mandibular canal after the extraction of a third molar. We retrospectively analyzed MRI scans of 30 test subjects with healthy mandibles and 41 patients who had had a wisdom tooth extracted. Signal intensities were measured at particular sites in the neurovascular bundle, which were defined as regions of interest (ROI) in the sagittal T1-weighted images before and after intravenous administration of a paramagnetic contrast agent. On the basis of the signal intensity increases that were measured after contrast agent administration, we compared the signal increases obtained for the patients who had received surgical treatment with the results obtained for the population of test subjects with unremarkable mandibles (t-test, P<0.05). Compared with the healthy test subjects, patients who had received surgical treatment showed significantly higher signal intensity increases at two measurement sites, i.e., the second molar and the second premolar (P<0.05). We found no significant differences when the measurements were performed at the first molar (P=0.06), the third molar (P=0.47) and in the area of the ascending mandibular ramus (P=0.79). Compared with a population of healthy test subjects, patients who had their third molars surgically removed show higher signal intensity increases in the neurovascular bundle after intravenous contrast agent administration. Ttravenous contrast agent administration. The underlying cause may be the higher blood flow in the arteries and veins and the perineural plexus, which may give evidence of the pathophysiological mechanism of nerve damage in the narrow canal as a result of osteotomy.

Uno fue el grupo ibuprofeno y el otro el grupo diclofenaco. La intervención practicada fue la extracción quirúrgica de un tercer molar inferior cuya dificultad fue determinada en función del grado de inclusión en todos los pacientes. Las variables registradas fueron la intensidad del dolor y la necesidad de medicación de rescate durante un periodo de una semana. Los registros se realizaron una vez al día a la misma hora y registrados en un cuaderno por parte del paciente. -Resultados: Un total de 81 pacientes (87.1%) fueron incluidos en el estudio. Los valores fueron similares en las primeras 48 horas postoperatorias, pero a partir del tercer día existió una tendencia del grupo diclofenaco a mostrar valores de dolor superiores, aunque sin llegar a existir diferencias estadísticamente significativas (p>0.05). Esta tendencia a presentar mayor dolor durante el periodo postoperatorio en el grupo diclofenaco también se vio reflejada en el requerimiento del analgésico de rescate y en el número de comprimidos empleados. -Conclusiones: No se evidenciaron diferencias estadísticamente significativas en cuanto a la eficacia analgésica del diclofenaco sódico respecto al ibuprofeno, aunque sí pudo observarse una mayor tendencia hacia la necesidad de más medicación suplementaria durante los 2 primeros días del postoperatorio en el grupo diclofenaco pero sin adquirir significación estadística (p>0.05).

MATERIAL E MÉTODO: Foram avaliados 160 pacientes de ambos os sexos, sendo 80 submetidos ao bloqueio do nervo alveolar inferior de Vazirani-Akinosi e bloqueio do nervo bucal (G1), e 80 submetidos ao bloqueio do nervo alveolar inferior convencional e ao bloqueio do nervo bucal (G2). Em ambos os grupos, utilizou-se a combinação de articaína 4% com epinefrina 1:100.000 para bloqueio do nervo bucal, e lidocaína 2% com epinefrina 1:100.000 para bloqueio do nervo alveolar inferior. Foram avaliados: a quantidade de aspirações positivas, a eficácia da anestesia e o momento em que ocorreu a falha anestésica durante o procedimento cirúrgico. RESULTADO: Não houve diferenças estatisticamente significantes (p = 0,2453) entre os grupos G1 e G2 observando-se a eficácia e o índice de aspirações positivas, e o momento em que ocorreu a falha anestésica, observando-se uma maior eficácia de ambas as técnicas, quando comparadas com a literatura (90%) CONCLUSÃO: Não houve diferença significativa entre o BNAI pela técnica convencional e o BNAI pela técnica de Vazirani-Akinosi quanto a quantidade de aspirações positivas e eficácia, sendo que o uso da articaína 4% com epinefrina 1:100.000 no bloqueio do nervo bucal possivelmente aumentou a eficácia anestésica de ambas as técnicas.

OBJECTIVE: Evaluate two different techniques (conventional technique and Vazirani-Akino [...] si) for inferior alveolar nerve block, and compare them regarding their effectiveness and quantify the percentage of positive aspirations in both techniques. MATERIAL AND METHOD: 160 patients were evaluated for both sex, with 80 undergoing Vazirani-Akinosi technique plus buccal nerve block (G1), and 80 to conventional inferior alveolar nerve block plus buccal nerve block (G2), both groups using a combination of 4% articaine with 1:100.000 epinephrine to buccal nerve block and 2% lidocaine with 1:100.000 epinephrine to inferior alveolar nerve block. We evaluated the amount of positive aspirations, the effectiveness or not of anesthesia (pain) and when it occurred during the surgical procedure. RESULT: There were no statistically significant differences (p = 0.2453) between G1 and G2 observing the positive aspiration. It was obtained efficiency of 90% for both techniques. CONCLUSION: No significant difference between the conventional alveolar inferior nerve block technique and Vazirani-Akinosi alveolar nerve block technique considering the amount of positive aspirations and efficacy, and the use of 4% articaine with 1:100.000 epinephrine in buccal nerve block possibly increased the anesthetic efficacy of both techniques.

Pacientes y método: Presentamos un estudio a simple ciego, randomizado, sobre 30 pacientes, valorando la influencia de la colocación en una sola vez y de forma intraalveolar gel bioadhesivo conteniendo clorhexidina al 0,2% tras la extracción de terceros molares incluidos, en la aparición de alveolitis y en el postoperatorio de los pacientes. Resultados: Encontramos una reducción del 42,65% en la tasa de alveolitis y un postoperatorio más favorable en el grupo experimental. En el grupo control, la alveolitis apareció en un 30,76% frente a un 17,64 % en el grupo experimental. Discusión y Conclusiones: Tras comparar nuestros datos con otros estudio, pensamos que el gel bioadhesivo de clorhexidina al 0,2%, aplicado en una sola vez de forma intraalveolar parece ser una opción adecuada para la prevención de la alveolitis. Esta actuación mejora la apertura bucal y el edema en el postoperatorio, aunque son necesarios nuevos estudios realizados a doble ciego y con muestras más amplias para confirmar nuestros datos. Abstract in english Purpose: Chlorhexidine is a good prophylactic agent for post-extraction dry socket alveolitis. The bio-adhesive 0.2% chlorhexidine gel could improve this action since its intra-alveolar positioning would allow a more direct action on the alveolus and more prolonged action of the medication. Material [...] s and Method: We present a single blind, randomised study on 30 patients to evaluate the efficacy of the bio-adhesive 0.2% chlorhexidine gel, placed only once within the alveolus, on the reduction of the incidence of impacted third molar post-extraction dry socket alveolitis and its post-operative effects on patients. Results. A reduction of 42.65% in the occurrence of alveolitis and a more favourable post-operative period in the experimental group was observed. In the control group, the appearance of alveolitis was 30.76% opposite to 17.64 % in the experimental group. Conclusions: The bio-adhesive 0.2% chlorhexidine gel, applied only once after the extraction of impacted third molars, seems to be an appropriate option for the reduction of alveolitis. It improves the buccal aperture and oedema in the post-operative period, although further double blind studies with larger samples are necessary.

    Full Text Available Fusão é a união de dois germes dentários em desenvolvimento, resultando numa única estrutura dentária, podendo ocorrer entre dois germes dentários normais ou entre o germe de um dente normal com um supranumerário. Dentes supranumerários são dentes adicionais à série normal e podem ocorrer em qualque [...] r região da arcada dentária, entretanto, são mais comumente encontrados na maxila do que na mandíbula. O presente artigo ilustra um caso de fusão entre um terceiro molar mandibular e um dente supranumerário, onde foi realizada uma intervenção cirúrgica com o objetivo de remover os elementos dentários. Para complementar o diagnóstico, além da radiografia panorâmica, utilizou-se a técnica radiográfica de Donovan, mas, devido à proximidade do elemento dental com o ramo mandibular, não foi possível determinar um diagnóstico preciso de fusão. Sendo assim foi utilizada a Tomografia Computadorizada Volumétrica que fornece informações precisas e em três dimensões, possibilitando desta forma chegar ao diagnóstico de fusão e também auxiliando no planejamento cirúrgico. Abstract in english Fusion is the union of two developing dental germs, resulting in a single large dental structure. It involve two normal dental germs or the germ of a normal tooth with a germ of a supernumerary one. Supernumerary teeth are additional teeth of the normal series which may occur in any region of the de [...] ntal arch, althoug they are more common in the maxilla than in the mandible. This article presents a case of fusion between a third molar and a supernumerary tooth, in which a surgical intervention was carried out, with the objective of removing the dental elements. The panoramic radiography was complemented by the Donovan´s radiographic technique, but because of the proximity of the dental element to the mandibular ramus, it was not possible to have a final fusion diagnosis. Hence, the Cone-Beam Computed Tomography which provides precise three-dimensional information, was used to determinate the fusion diagnosis and also to help in the surgical planning.

    This study aimed the observation of inflammatory process decrease by the use of GaAlAs Low Intensity Laser ({lambda}=830 nm; 40 mW) irradiation. Five patients were selected and submitted to surgery of impacted lower third molars, both right and left sides at different occasions. On a first stage, a tooth of a random chosen side - right or left - was extracted by conventional surgery, without LILT. The inflammatory process was measured at postoperative on the first, third and seventh days. This side was then called 'control side'. After 21 days, period in which the inflammatory process of the first surgery was terminated, the other side surgery took place, this time using LILT (4 J at four spots) at postoperative, first and third days. As the previous surgery, the inflammatory process was also measured at postoperative on the first, third and seventh days. This side was called 'experimental or lased side'. The inflammatory process was evaluated by measuring its four characteristic signs: swelling, pain, color and temperature. It was clearly observed a decrease for swelling, pain and color on the lased side which presented significant inference and descriptive statistics. It can be concluded that GaAlAs Low Intensity Laser ({lambda}=830 nm) can surely be used as an additional and important anti-inflammatory source on impacted lower third molar surgeries. (author)

  20. Relationship between lower third molar and mandibular canal

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The mandibular canal is often closely related to the lower third molars. During the surgical removal of the third molar, the inferior alveolar nerve in the canal is sometimes damaged leading to impaired sensation in the lower lip. This is one of the most unpleasant postoperative complications. The buccolingual relationship between the lower third molar and the mandibular canal cannot be diagnosed by ortho-pantomography although preoperative evaluation must be carried out radiologically. In present study, the relationship was determined by using CT scan. Forty-seven lower third molars of 35 patients were evaluated preoperatively by CT scan. The mandibular canal of all cases overlapped with the third molar on ortho-pantomography. CT scan was taken in two ways. The first was the Tragion-Menton plane which was nearly parallel to the canal at the apex of the third molar. The second was the plane of the axis of the third molar. Axial CT scan was taken when the third molar erupted horizontally, and coronal CT scan was done when the molar erupted vertically. CT scan examination exactly revealed the position of the mandibular canal in relation to the root of the third molar. The canal was located buccally to the roots in 55 percent of cases, apicobuccally in 6 percent, apically in 23 percent, apicolingually in 6 percent, lingually in 2 percent, and between roots in 6 percent. The results of the present study were consistent with previous reports. In 12 cases, the inferior alveus reports. In 12 cases, the inferior alveolar neurovascular bundle was visible during operation. It was visible in only 2 of 22 cases when the canal was located buccally. It was visible, on the other hand, in all cases in which the canal was located apicolingually, lingually, and between roots. It also tended to be visible when the canal overlapped more strongly with the third molar on preoperative ortho-pantomography. (author)

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: embora placas labioativas (PLAs) promovam um ganho clínico significativo no perímetro da arcada inferior em pacientes com dentição mista, ortodontistas são relutantes em usá-las devido a possibilidade de problemas eruptivos dos segundos molares. [...] OBJETIVO: o presente estudo avaliou a impacção dos segundos molares associada ao uso das PLAs e como a impacção pôde ser resolvida. MÉTODOS: radiografias cefalométricas lateral e panorâmica de 67 pacientes (34 do sexo feminino e 33 do masculino) foram avaliadas antes (T1) e após (T2) o tratamento com PLAs, que durou aproximadamente 1,8 ± 0,9 anos. Expansão rápida do palato (ERP) foi usada na maxila no início do uso da PLA. Usando as radiografias panorâmicas, a impacção dos segundos molares inferiores foi avaliada relativamente à posição dos primeiros molares mandibulares. Os movimentos horizontais e verticais dos primeiros e segundos molares inferiores foram avaliados com base em sobreposições de estruturas estáveis da arcada inferior por meio das radiografias laterais. RESULTADOS: oito (11,9%) pacientes apresentaram impacção dos segundos molares mandibulares ao final do tratamento com PLA; dois pacientes tiveram de recorrer à intervenção cirúrgica para a correção da impacção, cinco tiveram a correção da impacção usando apenas espaçadores e um apresentou autocorreção da impacção. A coroa e o ápice do primeiro molar inferior migraram 1.3mm e 2,.3mm, respectivamente, para mesial. O segundo molar não mostrou movimento horizontal significativo. CONCLUSÃO: embora o tratamento com PLA aumente o risco de impacção do segundo molar mandibular, as impacções, na maioria das vezes, podem ser facilmente corrigidas. Abstract in english INTRODUCTION: Although lip bumpers (LBs) provide significant clinical gain of mandibular arch perimeter in mixed-dentition patients, orthodontists are reluctant to use them due to the possibility of permanent second molar eruptive disturbances. [...] OBJECTIVE: The present study was conducted to assess second molar impaction associated with the use of LBs, and to investigate how they can be solved. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Lateral and panoramic radiographs of 67 patients (34 females and 33 males) were assessed prior (T1) and post-LB treatment (T2). LB therapy lasted for approximately 1.8 ± 0.9 years. Concomitant rapid palatal expansion (RPE) was performed in the maxilla at LB treatment onset. Impaction of mandibular second molars was assessed by means of panoramic radiographs in relation to the position of first mandibular molars. Horizontal and vertical movements of first and second molars were assessed cephalometrically on lateral cephalometric radiographs based on mandibular superimpositions. RESULTS: Eight (11.9%) patients had impacted second molars at the end of LB therapy. Two patients required surgical correction, whereas five required spacers and one patient was self-corrected. Mandibular first molar tip and apex migrated forward 1.3 mm and 2.3 mm, respectively. Second molar tip showed no statistically significant horizontal movement. CONCLUSION: Although LB therapy increased the risk of second molar impaction, impactions were, in most instances, easily solved.

  4. Maxillary sinus pneumatization after maxillary molar extraction assessed with cone beam computed tomography

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The purpose of this study was to examine the inferior expansion of the maxillary sinus floor following maxillary molar extraction. Cone beam computed tomographic images of 59 subjects were used to evaluate the height difference of the maxillary sinus floor between extraction sites and contralateral dentate sites. The height of the maxillary sinus floor was defined as the vertical distance to the Frankfort plane from the level of the anterior nasal spine to the most inferior point of the sinus floor. We examined the difference in sinus pneumatization according to the number of missing teeth and the vertical relationship of the molar roots to the sinus floor. The inferior expansion of the maxillary sinus floor was 1.20 ± 1.86 mm on the maxillary first molar and 1.90 ± 2.42 mm on the maxillary second molar. Increased expansion was observed in cases where two proximate molars were extracted. There was no significant difference in sinus pneumatization following extraction according to the vertical relationship of the molar roots to the sinus floor. The results of this study confirm that sinus pneumatization occurs following maxillary molar extraction. In situations where pneumatization can affect treatment after molar extraction, three-dimensional radiography should be considered.

    Full Text Available Introduction. Extraction of impacted mandibular third molars is often accompanied by intraoperative and postoperative complications such as damage of the inferior alveolar nerve, prolonged difficulty in mouth opening, alveolitis, pain and swelling in the region of surgery. The aim of this study was to compare two surgical techniques (standard and piezo in the extraction of mandibular third molars and to assess their postoperative complications. Material and Methods. Study included 16 patients (8 male and 8 female age 17 to 32 years treated in the period from 2012 to 2014. All patients had both mandibular molars impacted. One third molar was extracted using classical technique while the other one using a piezo device. Preoperative preparation was the same for all patients and included radiological analysis and verification of teeth by ortopan tomography (OPG and CT. Patients were assessed one, seven and 14 days after the procedure. Results. After the extraction, all patients were followed for postoperative symptoms: pain, swelling and paresthesia of the inferior alveolar nerve. The results confirmed advantages of piezosurgery in the removal of impacted mandibular third molars. Average duration of the intervention was 18 minutes with standard technique while the duration with piezo technique was 23 minutes. According to the visual-analog scale (VAS the average pain in the standard group was 9 whereas in the piezo group it was 6. Postoperative swelling was 10 mm (pronounced the first day after the procedure in the standard group while in the piezo group it was 6 mm (moderate. Conclusion. The use of piezo technology for the extraction of impacted wisdom teeth is reliable method which reduces the risk of the most common postoperative complications following mandibular wisdom teeth removal.

    2011-02-01

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Effective pain control in Dentistry may be achieved by local anesthetic techniques. The success of the anesthetic technique in mandibular structures depends on the proximity of the needle tip to the mandibular foramen at the moment of anesthetic injection into the pterygomandibular region. Two techniques are available to reach the inferior alveolar nerve where it enters the mandibular canal, namely indirect and direct; these techniques differ in the number of movements required. Data demonstrate that the indirect technique is considered ineffective in 15% of cases and the direct technique in 13-29% of cases. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe an alternative technique for inferior alveolar nerve block using several anatomical points for reference, simplifying the procedure and enabling greater success and a more rapid learning curve. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 193 mandibles (146 with permanent dentition and 47 with primary dentition from dry skulls were used to establish a relationship between the teeth and the mandibular foramen. By using two wires, the first passing through the mesiobuccal groove and middle point of the mesial slope of the distolingual cusp of the primary second molar or permanent first molar (right side, and the second following the oclusal plane (left side, a line can be achieved whose projection coincides with the left mandibular foramen. RESULTS: The obtained data showed correlation in 82.88% of cases using the permanent first molar, and in 93.62% of cases using the primary second molar. CONCLUSION: This method is potentially effective for inferior alveolar nerve block, especially in Pediatric Dentistry.

    Full Text Available PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of 10 mm inferior oblique recession in horizontal strabismus with V pattern and primary inferior oblique overaction. METHODS: Ten patients of V esotropia and exotropia with primary inferior oblique overaction underwent 10 mm inferior oblique recession by the methods described by Park and Stallard. Pre- and postoperative V pattern, inferior oblique overaction and binocularity were assessed. Patients were followed up for 3 months. RESULTS: The mean preoperative V pattern was 38.3 PD and the mean inferior oblique overaction was 22 PD. After surgery the mean correction of the V pattern was 26.9 PD and the mean residual V pattern was 11.4 PD. None of the patients had inferior oblique overaction postoperatively. 70% of the patients showed improvement in binocularity. CONCLUSION: 10 mm Inferior oblique recession by the described technique is a simple, safe and effective method for the cosmetic and functional treatment of horizontal deviation and V pattern with primary inferior oblique overaction.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: esse estudo avaliou o posicionamento anteroposterior dos primeiros molares superiores (1º MS) e inferiores, e o grau de rotação dos 1º MS, em indivíduos com má oclusão de Classe II, divisão 1. MÉTODOS: mensuraram-se, em aparelho de precisão Assimetria I, 60 pares de modelos, de 27 indivídu [...] os do sexo feminino e 33 do masculino, entre 12 e 21 anos de idade, com má oclusão de Classe II, divisão 1. Utilizando a sutura palatina mediana como referência de eixo de simetria, os modelos foram posicionados no aparelho para mensuração da distância entre a crista marginal mesial do molar mais distal e a crista marginal mesial do molar do lado oposto, a fim de verificar o posicionamento sagital dos molares. Em relação à giroversão, mediu-se a distância entre pontos na crista marginal mesial. O teste qui-quadrado a 5% foi utilizado para verificar a variação de posicionamento dos molares, por arcos e por lado. O teste t de Student a 5% foi utilizado para comparar esses valores. RESULTADOS: houve maior número de molares inferiores mesializados e, comparando os lados, maior número de molares mesializados no lado direito em ambas as arcadas. As rotações médias dos molares foram de 0,76mm do lado direito e 0,93mm do esquerdo. CONCLUSÃO: não houve diferença estatisticamente significativa entre os valores médios das mesializações dos molares quanto a lado ou arco. Quando observada isoladamente, a rotação dos molares, quantificada em milímetros, representou uma situação de ¼ de Classe II. Abstract in english OBJECTIVE: This study assessed the anterior-posterior positioning of the upper and lower first molars, and the degree of rotation of the upper first molars in individuals with Class II, division 1, malocclusion. METHODS: Asymmetry I, an accurate device, was used to assess sixty sets of dental casts [...] from 27 females and 33 males, aged between 12 and 21 years old, with bilateral Class II, division 1. The sagittal position of the molars was determined by positioning the casts onto the device, considering the midpalatal suture as a symmetry reference, and then measuring the distance between the mesial marginal ridge of the most distal molar and the mesial marginal ridge of its counterpart. With regard to the degree of rotation of the upper molar, the distance between landmarks on the mesial marginal ridge was measured. Chi-square test with a 5% significance level was used to verify the variation in molars position. Student's t test at 5% significance was used for statistical analysis. RESULTS: A great number of lower molars mesially positioned was registered, and the comparison between the right and left sides also demonstrated a higher number of mesially positioned molars on the right side of both arches. The average rotation of the molars was found to be 0.76 mm and 0.93 mm for the right and left sides, respectively. CONCLUSION: No statistically significant difference was detected between the mean values of molars mesialization regardless of the side and arch. Molars rotation, measured in millimeters, represented ¼ of Class II.

    Full Text Available The aim of this work was to evaluate the eruption of the third molar teeth in the length of the mandible using the orthodontic documentation obtained between 2005 and 2006 as sampling method, a total of 193 cases of both sexes. The cephalometric analysis and panoramic radiographic studies were chosen from two clinics randomly selected in the city of Recife ­ Pernambuco - Brazil. It was analyzed the linear size of mandibular bone by the use of McNamara's Cephalometric Analysis, and also the presence or not of dental retention of inferior third molar teeth with the help of panoramic radiographic study, evaluating the commitment of these retentions with the effective length of mandible. The work concluded that when the effective mandibular length is small induces a dental retention of these third molars, mostly the left inferior third molar, which 46.5% of the cases was observed as retained. However, in 53.8% of the cases was observed the absence or no-formation of these dental germs for the left inferior third molar and 60% for the right, showing a big size of the effective length of the mandible exposing that the no-formation of these teeth was not directly related to the lack of space in the dental arch.

  9. Positional relationship between the deciduous molar and the successional permanent teeth. Three-dimensional observation of the deciduous second molars and second premolars by X-ray CT

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    To investigate the positional relationship between the maxillo-mandibular deciduous second molars and the successional permanent teeth, the second premolars in the jaw bones, three-dimensional observation of dry skulls was performed using X-ray CT. The specimens were 30 dry skulls, comprising of 15 dry skulls in the deciduous dentition period and 15 dry skulls in the first half of the mixed dentition period. The following results were obtained: Regarding the observation of the horizontally sectioned images, measurement was performed by overlapping horizontally sectioned images of the outline form of the tooth crown of the deciduous second molars, and those of the bony crypt of the second premolars. In the maxillary bone, the bony crypt of the second premolars was mesio-distally within the outline form of the tooth crown of the diciduous second molars, whereas it was bucco-lingually on the palatal side. In the mandibular bone, although the bony crypt of the second premolars was bucco-lingually within the outline form of the tooth crown of the deciduous second molars, it was mesio-distally slightly on the distal side. By observing the position of the central point of the deciduous second molar tooth crown and that of the deciduous second molar tooth root, differences were noted in both the maxilla and mandible, and the distance between the 2 points was larger in the mandible. Furthermore, by observing the position of the central point of the deciduous second molar tooth point of the deciduous second molar tooth crown and that of the bony crypt of the second premolars, the distance was larger in the maxilla. Regarding the observation of the vertically sectioned images, bucco-lingual sections of the maxillo-mandibular deciduous second molars were observed. Differences in the inclination angle between the coronal axis of the deciduous second molars and the axis of the bony crypt were smaller in the maxilla than in the mandible. Therefore, it was speculated that the bony crypt was vertically located near the direction of the coronal axis of the deciduous second molars in the maxilla, and was in the inferior position of the crown of the deciduous second molars in the mandible. The vertical distance between the occlusal surface (cuspal mid-point) of the deciduous second molars and the superior edge point of the bony crypt of the second molars was 9.3 mm in the maxilla, and 9.8 mm in the mandible, and that between the occlusal surface of the deciduous second molars and the central point of the bony crypt was 14.4 mm in the maxilla, and 14.0 mm in the mandible, showing no significant differences between the maxilla and mandible. Concerning the positional relationship between the maxillo-mandibular deciduous second molars and the second premolars, these findings revealed that the bony crypts of the successional permanent teeth are not positioned in the central area of the deciduous tooth crowns, both bucco-lingually and mesio-distally, but in characteristic positions in both the maxilla and mandible. It was also found that differences in the mutual positional relationship were large in the maxilla, in particular. (author)

  10. Positional relationship between mandibular third molar and mandibular canal in cone beam computed tomographs

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    To provide diagnostic information by evaluation of the positional relationship between the mandibular third molar and the mandibular canal. Eighty-nine mandibular third molars were classified as mesioangular, horizontal, vertical, distoangular groups. The distances between the mandibular third molar and the mandibular canal were measured in cone-beam computed tomographs. The height and width ratios of distances from the mandibular third molar and the mandibular canal to the mandibular inferior border and to the lingual cortical plate were calculated. The vertical and buccolingual distances between the mandibular third molar and the mandibular canal were 0.03 mm, 2.96 mm in the mesioangular, 0.37 mm, 3.38 ,, in the horizontal, -1.50 mm, 1.38 mm in the vertical, -1.10 mm, 4.20 mm in the distoangular group. There were significant differences in vertical (P0.05). The height and width ratios of distances on the mandibular third molar were 47.1%, 36.1% in the mesioangular, 47.4%, 34.4% in the horizontal, 37.0%, 46.7% in the vertical, 40.9%, 37.4% in the distoangular group. There were significant differences between the mesioangular and the vertical group, and the horizontal and the vertical group in height ratio (P>0.05). The mesioangular group showed the nearest distance between the mandibular third molar and the mandibular canal vertically. The root apex of the mandibular third molar was positioned more buccally in the vertical group thaed more buccally in the vertical group than in the mesioangular group

    Full Text Available Delayed development and eruption of all the permanent molars is a rare phenomenon, which can cause disturbance in the developing occlusion. The eruption of permanent first and second molars is very important for the coordination of facial growth and for providing sufficient occlusal support for undisturbed mastication. In the case described, the first permanent molars were delayed in their development and were seen erupting at the age of nine and a half years. Severe disparity between the left and the right side of the dentition with respect to the rate of development of molars were also present.

No differences were observed between the groups in food retention surface index at the initial time. At the final time, the mandibular molars show a higher retention area than the maxillary ones (Mann-Whitney’s test, p=0.04). The prevalence of food retention at the mandibular molars is higher than the maxillary molars (Chi Square’s test, p=0.03). In conclusion, first primary mandibular molars retain more food than the maxillary molars, being in agreement with clinical results of dental caries’ prevalence.

    1983-01-01

    Percentage frequencies for molar size sequence of first and second molars were calculated in a group of contemporary Australian Aboriginals using mesiodistal and buccolingual dimensions, as well as crown areas. Comparisons were made between sexes, arches, and dimensions within the Aboriginal group and also between Aboriginal data and those published for other populations. The frequencies of the M2 greater than M1 molar size sequence in the Aboriginals fell within the range of frequencies reported for other contemporary populations. Differences in the frequencies of the M2 greater than M1 sequence between the sexes and between arches, together with the relatively high frequency of asymmetry in molar size sequence within Aboriginals, supported the notion that local environmental conditions acting during odontogenesis, together with differential responses to other environmental influences, play an important role in determining observed patterns of molar tooth size.

To identify the factors causing acute inflammation in the solitary molars without second molars or without second and first molars, ages of patients and rates of acute inflammation in 75 horizontal incompletely impacted mandibular molars in contact or not in contact with molars in subjects 41 years old or older were studied using orthopantomographs. Acute inflammation was seen in nine third molars out of 48 third molars in contact with second molars (18.8%, whereas acute inflammation was seen in 11 molars out of 19 solitary molars without second molars or without first and second molars (57.9% (p < 0.01. The mean age of 48 subjects with third molars in contact with the second molar was 50.42 ± 7.62 years, and the mean age of 19 subjects with isolated molars was 65.16 ± 10.41 years (p < 0.0001. These indicate that a solitary horizontal incompletely impacted molar leads more frequently to acute inflammation along with aging due to possible bone resorption resulting from teeth loss.Keywords: mandible, third molar, impaction, elderly, acute inflammation, solitary molar

    Ectopic eruption of the first permanent molar is a relatively common occurence in the developing dentition. A range of treatment options are available to the clinician provided that diagnosis is made early. Non-treatment can result in premature exfoliation of the second primary molar, space loss and impaction of the second premolar. This paper will describe the management of ectopic first permanent molars, using clinical examples to illustrate the available treatment options. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: This paper is relevant to every general dental practitioner who treats patients in mixed dentition.

    Full Text Available La variada posición anatómica de los terceros molares mandibulares presenta importantes desafíos asociados a su profundidad y grado de inclinación. Las complicaciones más habituales del procedimiento quirúrgico convencional de extracción se relacionan con la extensa osteotomía y poca visualización del sitio quirúrgico, que pueden generar consecuencias post-quirúrgicas como inflamación, dolor, trismus, lesiones reversibles e irreversibles del nervio alveolar inferior (NAI o nervio lingual, riesgo de fractura y formación de defectos periodontales del segundo molar. La implementación de soportes rígidos en la óptica endoscópica ha permitido utilizar esta tecnología para realizar abordajes mínimamente invasivos para remover terceros molares mediante accesos flapless con una mínima osteotomía de la zona oclusal, conservando la pared bucal y lingual a través de la visualización directa y magnificada del sitio quirúrgico, adaptable a los movimientos del paciente durante la intervención. En este reporte se presenta un nuevo procedimiento quirúrgico mínimamente invasivo a través de asistencia endoscópica para la conservación ósea en la remoción de terceros molares mandibulares con riesgo de lesión del nervio alveolar inferior.Anatomic variability of the position of mandibular third molars represents significant challenges associated with its depth and angulation. The most common complications of conventional surgical procedure are related to extensive osteotomy and poor visualization, which can cause postsurgical effects such as inflammation, pain, trismus, reversible and irreversible lesions of the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN or lingual nerve, fracture risk and formation of a deep periodontal defect on the distal aspect of the second molar. The implementation of rigid endoscopy in optics has allowed to use this technology via a minimally invasive approach to remove third molars by a minimally occlusal flapless ostectomy, preserving the buccal and lingual walls through direct and magnified visualization of the surgical site, adaptable to the patient’s movements during the surgery. In this report, we present a new and minimally invasive procedure through endoscopic assistance for bone conservation in the removal of third molars at risk of inferior alveolar nerve injury.

    Full Text Available Pronounced long shoot/short shoot differentiation is typical for deciduous angiosperm trees. It also occurs in a number of gymnosperms and very few evergreen angiosperm trees. The study of 719 angiosperm tree species (602 deciduous and 117 evergreen species demonstrated that the deciduous condition is nearly always associated with shoot differentiation. Detailed measurements in 38 angiosperms showed that the leaf area of an entire short shoot equals the leaf area of a single long shoot leaf of the same species and individual. In the few cases where the leaf area of the short shoot is slightly larger than that of a single long-shoot leaf, the short shoot leaves shade each other and the projection of the short shoot equals the area of a single long shoot leaf. Calculations of the stem biomass needed to expose a given assimilatory surface show two interesting aspects. First, the stem biomass (dry weight to expose leaf surface is about 10 times less in short shoots than in long shoots. Second, this biomass in long shoots and short shoots appears to be species independent. Regarding shoot structure efficiency, leaf size and shape do not matter. Some evergreen species resemble in all parameters more to deciduous species than to typical evergreen species. Phytogeographical data as well as morphological data suggest that these atypical evergreen species are derived from deciduous ancestors. As measured parameters differ markedly between all gymnosperms, except Ginkgo, and angiosperms, we suppose that the evolutionary pathway leading to shoot differentiation was different for gymnosperms and angiosperms.En Angiospermas arbóreas deciduas, es común encontrar un alto grado de diferenciación entre brotes largos y brotes cortos.

En los pocos casos en que el área foliar del brote corto es levemente mayor que el área de una hoja de un brote largo, las hojas del brote corto se sombrean entre sí de manera que el área proyectada del brote corto se asemeja a la de la hoja del brote largo. Cálculos de la biomasa de tallo necesaria para soportar una determinada superficie asimilatoria mostraron dos aspectos interesantes. Primero, que la biomasa de tallo (peso seco de soporte del área foliar is alrededor de 10 veces menor en brotes cortos que en brotes largos.

En cuanto a la eficiencia estructural de los brotes, el tamano y la forma de las hojas no son relevantes. Algunas especies siempreverdes se asemejan en todos sus parámetros más a las especies deciduas que a especies siempreverdes típicas. Datos fitogeográficos así como datos morfológicos sugieren que estas especies siempreverdes atípicas derivaron de ancestros deciduos. Como todos los parámetros medidos difieren notablemente entre todas las gimnospermas, excepto Ginkgo, y las angiospermas, suponemos que el camino evolutivo que condujo a la diferenciación de brotes fue diferente en gimnospermas y angiospermas.

    The objective of this systematic review was to compare the outcomes between coronectomy and total removal for third molar extractions with high risk of nerve injury and to help practitioners make prudent decisions on whether and how third molars should be removed. PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, CENTRAL, and SIGLE were searched from January 1990 to October 2011 for randomized or non-randomized controlled trials. Four studies met our inclusion criteria. The pooled risk ratio (coronectomy vs. total removal) was 0.11 (95% CI = 0.03-0.36), 1.03 (95% CI = 0.54-1.98), 0.55 (95% CI = 0.28-1.05), and 1.14 (95% CI = 0.57-2.30) for inferior alveolar nerve injury, post-operative infection, dry socket, and pain at 1 wk after surgery, respectively. A relatively high rate of failed coronectomy in one study (38.3%, compared with 2.3%-9.4% in others) may be attributed to a higher proportion of narrowing roots and vertical impactions. Although root migration rate was high (13.2%-85.29%), the migration distances were short (3.06 ± 1.67 mm), and the directions were away from the nerves. Moreover, the rates of re-operation and root exposure were low. Therefore, coronectomy appears superior to total removal for reducing inferior alveolar nerve damage and could be used in clinical practice for third molar extractions with high risk of nerve injury.

    Full Text Available A extração de terceiros molares é o procedimento cirúrgico mais comum na prática diária em cirurgia oral, e complicações podem ocorrer a despeito da habilidade e experiência do cirurgião. Complicações observadas durante ou após extração de terceiros molares podem incluir dor, edema, sangramento, inf [...] ecção, perfuração de seio e dano nervoso. Felizmente, a incidência de tais eventos é baixa quando se emprega conduta adequada e boa técnica cirúrgica. O enfisema subcutâneo associado à extração dentária ocorre quando o ar da turbina de alta rotação é forçado para dentro dos tecidos moles através de um retalho rebatido e invade os tecidos adjacentes, causando edema, crepitação à palpação, e eventualmente espalhando-se pelos espaços teciduais dos planos fasciais. Embora seja raro, o enfisema subcutâneo iatrogênico pode ter conseqüências sérias e com risco de morte. É necessário ter cuidado com o uso de turbinas de alta rotação durante a realização de procedimentos cirúrgicos orais. A penetração de ar nos tecidos faciais não está limitada às extrações dentárias, e pode ocorrer também por outras vias de acesso, tais como dentes tratados endodonticamente, periodonto e lacerações de tecidos moles intraorais. Quando ocorre, o enfisema subcutâneo deve ser diagnosticado rapidamente e tratado adequadamente para diminuir o risco de outras complicações. Este relato apresenta um caso de enfisema subcutâneo ocorrido durante a extração de um terceiro molar inferior com emprego de turbina de alta rotação. O manejo do caso é descrito e os aspectos relacionados ao diagnóstico e à prevenção desta complicação cirúrgica são discutidos. Abstract in english Extraction of third molars is the most common surgical procedure performed in oral surgery on a daily basis and, despite surgical skills and expertise, complications may occur. Complications observed during or after third molar removal may include pain, swelling, bleeding, infection, sinus perforati [...] on and nerve damage. Fortunately, with a proper management and a good surgical technique, the incidence of such events is low. Subcutaneous emphysema associated with dental extraction occurs when the air from the high-speed dental handpiece is forced into the soft tissue through the reflected flap and invades the adjacent tissues, leading to swelling, crepitus on palpation and occasionally spreading through the tissue spaces of the fascial planes. Although rare, iatrogenic subcutaneous emphysema can have serious and potentially life-threatening consequences. Care should be taken when using air-driven handpieces. The access of air into the facial tissues is not limited to tooth extractions, but may also occur through other portals of entrance, such as endodontically treated teeth, periodontium and lacerations of intraoral soft tissues. When subcutaneous emphysema occurs, it must be quickly diagnosed and properly managed to reduce the risk of further complications. This report presents a case of subcutaneous emphysema occurred during extraction of a mandibular third molar extraction with the use of an air turbine handpiece. Case management is described and issues relative to the diagnosis and prevention of this surgical complication are discussed.

    Full Text Available Antecedentes: es importante evaluar el primer molar permanente, ya que en edad escolar es el diente permanente más afectado por caries. La prevalencia de caries en estos dientes se ha asociado con la actividad futura de caries. Objetivo: determinar la prevalencia de caries y las necesidades de tratamiento de los primeros molares permanentes en la población escolar de 12 años de las escuelas oficiales del municipio de Rionegro (Antioquia. Métodos: se realizó un estudio descriptivo transversal en 808 escolares de 12 años de escuelas públicas del municipio. Se analizó la prevalencia de caries dental en el primer molar permanente por número y tipo de dientes afectados y de acuerdo con sexo, escolaridad, zona de residencia y afiliación al Sistema General de Seguridad Social en Salud (SGSSS. También se describieron las necesidades de tratamiento para cada primer molar permanente. Resultados: los molares inferiores presentaron la mayor prevalencia de caries dental en relación con las variables de afiliación al SGSSS, sexo y zona de residencia; en estas dos últimas variables se evidenció más afectación en el primer molar inferior derecho y concentración en este molar de las necesidades de tratamiento restaurativo. Conclusiones: aunque se cuenta con estudios previos sobre prevalencia de caries dental en el municipio que muestran cumplimiento de metas de la Organización Mundial de la Salud, son más escasos los estudios que evalúen de manera individual los primeros molares permanentes para orientar políticas de salud pública dirigidos a la preservación de estas importantes estructuras dentales. Background: Evaluation of the first permanent molar is important since it is the tooth that is most affected from dental cavities in schoolers. Caries prevalence of this molar has been associated with future caries activity. Objective: Determine caries prevalence and treatment needs in the first permanent molar of a 12-year-old population from public schools in the municipality of Rionegro (Antioquia. Methods: A descriptive study in 808 12-year-old school children from public schools in Rionegro was conducted. Caries prevalence in the first permanent molar was analyzed regarding number and type of teeth affected and association with sex, grade, zone of residence, and type of affiliation to the social security system (SSS. Needs for dental treatment in this molar were also described. Results: Lower molars were the most affected by dental caries in relationship with sex, SSS, and zone of residence; in the latter two dental cavities were more prevalent in the right lower first molar, tooth in which the need for restorative treatment is higher than the other first molars. Conclusions: Although there are previous studies on the dental health status in Rionegro and indicators show that the goals of the World Health Organization are being met, evaluative research focused on the first permanent molar is scarce and necessary given its importance for health public policymaking intended to preserve this teeth.

  12. Inferior mirages: an improved model.

    2015-02-01

    A quantitative model of the inferior mirage is presented, based on a realistic temperature profile in the convective boundary layer, using Monin-Obukhov similarity theory. The top of the inverted image is determined by the logarithmic part of the profile; the bottom is the apparent horizon, which depends on optical obstruction by roughness elements. These effects of surface roughness are included in the model, which is illustrated with a simulation. The vertical magnification varies throughout the mirage, becoming infinite at Minnaert's ill-named "vanishing line"-which makes green flashes apparent to the naked eye. PMID:25967823

  13. Observation of positional relation between mandibular third molars and the mandibular canal on limited cone beam computed tomography

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We describe the preoperative use of limited cone beam computed tomography (CT) with a dental CT scanner for the assessment of mandibular third molars before extraction. Cone beam CT provides 42.7-mm-high and 30-mm-wide rectangular solid images, with a resolution of less than 0.2 mm. The positional relationship between the mandibular third molars and the mandibular canal was examined by dental CT. Sixty-eight lower third molars of 62 patients whose teeth were superimposed on the mandibular canal on periapical or panoramic radiographs were studied. Dental CT scans clearly demonstrated the positional relationship between the mandibular canal and the teeth. The mandibular canal was located buccally to the roots of 16 teeth, lingually to the roots of 27 teeth, inferiorly to the roots of 23 teeth, and between the roots of 2 teeth. The presence of bone between the mandibular canal and the teeth was not noted in 7 of 16 buccal cases, 24 of 27 lingual cases, and 10 of 23 inferior cases on dental CT scans, suggesting that the canal was in contact with the teeth. Fifty-nine of the 68 mandibular third molars were surgically removed, and postoperative transient hypoesthesia occurred in 4 patients. Dental CT scans showed no bone between the mandibular canal and the teeth in all 4 patients. Hypoesthesia was not related to the bucco-lingual location of the mandibular canal or to the extent of bone loss between the canal and the teeth. However, hypoesthesia did not occur in patients w, hypoesthesia did not occur in patients with bone between the mandibular canal and the teeth. Thus, information on the distance between the canal and teeth on dental CT scans was useful for predicting the risk of inferior alveolar nerve damage. Because of its high resolution and low radiation dose, cone beam CT was useful for examination before mandibular third molar surgery. (author)

    Full Text Available A má oclusão Classe I de Angle é caracterizada por uma relação anteroposterior normal nos molares, que pode ou não estar acompanhada por alterações esqueléticas - nos planos vertical ou transverso - ou dentárias. A biprotrusão, revelada pela inclinação acentuada dos incisivos superiores e inferiores [...] para vestibular, somada ao trespasse horizontal excessivo, faz com que o paciente fique mais exposto a traumas dentários, além de causar comprometimento estético. A escolha dos dentes a serem extraídos para a correção, geralmente, recai sobre os primeiros ou segundos pré-molares, devido à sua posição na arcada. Contudo, a extração do primeiro molar permanente, em função de algum comprometimento, por cárie ou restauração extensa, pode ser uma alternativa, proporcionando a manutenção de um dente hígido em detrimento de outro já manipulado. O presente caso, tratado de maneira incomum, pela extração dos quatro primeiros molares permanentes, foi apresentado à Diretoria do Board Brasileiro de Ortodontia e Ortopedia Facial (BBO), representando a categoria 2, como parte dos requisitos para a obtenção do título de diplomado pelo BBO.

Bimaxillary dental protrusion, characterized by pronounced labial inclination of maxillary and man [...] dibular incisors combined with excessive overjet, expose patients to dental trauma and compromise aesthetics. In deciding which teeth to extract for Class I correction the first or second premolars are usually selected due to their location in the dental arch. However, the extraction of a first permanent molar compromised by caries or extensive restoration may be an alternative that ensures the preservation of a healthy tooth instead of one that has already been manipulated. This case, treated in an unusual manner by the extraction of four first permanent molars, was presented to the Brazilian Board of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics (BBO) as representative of category 2, as part of the requirements for obtaining the BBO diplomate title.

A avaliação foi feita nos molares inferiores direitos (lado experimental e esquerdos (lado controle. As peças ósseas após descalcificação em solução de EDTA associada às microondas, seguiram técnica histológica de rotina e coloração por hematoxilina-eosina e tricrômico de Mallory. Verificou-se no lado controle uma reação intensa caracterizada por um posicionamento atípico dos odontoblastos, seguida pelo aparecimento de cálculos pulpares e posteriormente por uma aparente e uniforme acomodação tecidual em toda a polpa, com moderada incidência de fibras colágenas. No lado experimental, as alterações foram similares parecendo, porém, aumentar com o tempo, principalmente aos 30 dias, onde a imagem histológica era semelhante à do lado controle aos 10 dias. Os resultados obtidos permitiram concluir que a interferência oclusal provocou alterações no tecido conjuntivo pulpar tanto no lado experimental como no controle e que as mesmas foram proporcionais à direção dos movimentos mandibulares.Pulpal morphological alterations in mandibular molars of rats, resulting from an experimental external stimulus (occlusal interference, were studied using light microscopy.

On the control side, an intense reaction characterized by an atypical positioning of the odontoblasts was observed, followed by the appearance of pulp stones and, subsequently, by an apparent and uniform accommodation of the tissue in the whole pulp, with moderate incidence of collagenous fibers. On the experimental side, the alterations were similar, but they apparently increased with time, specially after 30 days, when the histologic image was similar to that of the control side after 10 days. We can conclude that the occlusal interference induces alterations in the pulpal connective tissue both on the experimental side and on the control side, and they are proportional to the direction of the mandibular movements.

    Full Text Available As alterações morfológicas pulpares, decorrentes de um estímulo externo experimental (interferência oclusal), foram estudadas, em nível de microscopia de luz. Utilizaram-se restaurações de amálgama, em sobreoclusão nos primeiros molares superiores direitos de dez ratos Wistar, divididos em 3 grupos [...] e sacrificados por perfusão transcardíaca com formol a 10%, aos 10, 20 e 30 dias. A avaliação foi feita nos molares inferiores direitos (lado experimental) e esquerdos (lado controle). As peças ósseas após descalcificação em solução de EDTA associada às microondas, seguiram técnica histológica de rotina e coloração por hematoxilina-eosina e tricrômico de Mallory. Verificou-se no lado controle uma reação intensa caracterizada por um posicionamento atípico dos odontoblastos, seguida pelo aparecimento de cálculos pulpares e posteriormente por uma aparente e uniforme acomodação tecidual em toda a polpa, com moderada incidência de fibras colágenas. No lado experimental, as alterações foram similares parecendo, porém, aumentar com o tempo, principalmente aos 30 dias, onde a imagem histológica era semelhante à do lado controle aos 10 dias. Os resultados obtidos permitiram concluir que a interferência oclusal provocou alterações no tecido conjuntivo pulpar tanto no lado experimental como no controle e que as mesmas foram proporcionais à direção dos movimentos mandibulares.

    The rotation of the maxillary molars is considered important in the orthodontic treatment of malocclusions. In this study, a computer analysis program was developed to examine the rotations of maxillary molars, mandibular molars, and maxillary first premolars in casts of permanent dentitions with acceptable occlusions. Ninety-three sets of untreated 'acceptable occlusion' models from the collection of the Foundation for Orthodontic Research (FOR) were scanned on a flat bed scanner. The images were analysed using custom software. Measurements were made by relating maxillary first permanent molars to the midline, archform, opposite canine, and mandibular first permanent molars. The mandibular first molars and maxillary first premolars were also analysed and their rotations measured. The mean rotations of the maxillary first molars, measured as the angle between a line joining the tips of the buccal cusps and a line tangent to the appropriate archwire form (from Ricketts' Pentamorphic Arches) at the first molars, were 0.59 and -0.72 degree (positive values represent mesio-lingual rotations) for the right and left, respectively. For the mandibular molars, these means were 6.34 and 8.40 degrees, respectively. The mean differences in rotation between buccal cusp tips of maxillary and mandibular first molars in occlusion were 5.75 and 9.12 degrees for the right and left, respectively, with the mandibular being more mesio-lingually rotated. The differences between left and right were significant for all measurements. The present study brings into question the suitability of our present "straight wire" prescriptions in producing similar occlusions. It also suggests that scanning models for computer analysis may be a practical and precise way to measure similar rotations in untreated normal and treated occlusions. PMID:9528408

    Solid isotopic helium mixtures have been studied by path-integral Monte Carlo simulations in the isothermal-isobaric ensemble. This method allowed us to study the molar volume as a function of temperature, pressure, and isotopic composition. At 25 K and 0.2 GPa, the relative difference between molar volumes of isotopically-pure crystals of 3He and 4He is found to be about 3%. This difference decreases under pressure, and for 12 GPa it is smaller than 1%. For isotopically-mix...

    Vulnerability to some psychopathologies may be related to feeling the need to compete, strive, and achieve in order to avoid inferiority and rejection. This study explored "insecure striving", (relating to a perceived need to strive to avoid inferiority and its consequence, rejection) in relationship to eating attitudes and appearance anxiety in students. Eating attitudes and appearance anxiety were associated with judgments of inferiority, insecure striving to avoid inferiority, and fear of losing out and were negatively associated to secure non-striving (social acceptance). Further work exploring the way people understand and react to the competitive dynamics of their social groups may illuminate important processes linked to eating disorders. PMID:16873147

    Full Text Available JUSTIFICATIVA E OBJETIVOS: A utilização da injeção submucosa de dexametasona diretamente na área cirúrgica tem sido realizada em vários procedimentos odontológicos, mas ainda são escassos os estudos que avaliaram a sua eficácia em comparação com a via oral para exodontias de terceiros molares inclu [...] sos. Desta forma, o objetivo do presente estudo foi avaliar a dor, edema e trismo no pós-operatório de cirurgia de terceiros molares inclusos utilizando-se dexametasona, por via oral, ou por injeção local submucosa. MÉTODOS: Estudo prospectivo, controlado, cruzado e randomizado envolvendo 36 pacientes com indicação cirúrgica de terceiros molares inferiores que foram divididos em dois grupos: grupo A injeção local submucosa de dexametasona (4mg/1mL) após a anestesia local e grupo B - 1 comprimido de dexametasona (4mg), por via oral, uma hora antes do procedimento. Edema e trismo foram avaliados clinicamente no pré-operatório, 1º, 2º, 3º e 7º dia de pós-operatório. Os pacientes foram orientados a registrar a intensidade de dor na escala analógica visual nos períodos zero (pré-operatório), 1h, 2h, 4h, 12h, 1 dia, 2 dias, 3 dias e uma semana após as cirurgias. Os dados obtidos foram submetidos a análise estatística com nível de significância de 5%. RESULTADOS: Não revelaram diferenças significativas no tempo cirúrgico em relação aos lados operados (p=0,4). Os valores de edema facial e trismo não demonstraram diferenças estatisticamente significativas entre os grupos observados (p>0,05). Os valores médios de dor registrados na escala analógica visual não mostraram diferença estatística significativa entre os grupos e os pacientes não relataram grande desconforto pós-operatório e não necessitaram prolongar o fármaco analgésico (p>0,05). CONCLUSÃO: As duas vias de administração da dexametasona mostraram-se eficazes no controle da dor, edema e trismo após cirurgias de terceiros molares inferiores, apresentando resultados semelhantes. Abstract in english BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Submucosal dexamethasone injection directly in the surgical area has been used in different dental procedures, but there are still few studies evaluating its efficacy as compared to oral route for impacted third molar surgeries. So, this study aimed to evaluate postoperat [...] ive pain, edema and trismus after impacted third molar surgeries using oral or submucosal local injection of dexamethasone. METHODS: This was a prospective, controlled, crossover and randomized study involving 36 patients with indication of lower third molar surgeries, who were randomly distributed in two groups: group A - submucosal local injection of dexamethasone (4mg/1mL) after local anesthesia, and group B - oral dexamethasone tablet (4mg) one hour before procedure. Edema and trismus were clinically evaluated in the postoperative period and in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 7th postoperative days. Patients were oriented to record pain intensity in the visual analog scale in periods zero (preoperative), 1h, 2h, 4h, 12h, 1 day, 2 days and 3 days and one week after surgery. Data were submitted to statistical analysis with significance level of 5%. RESULTS: There were no significant differences in surgical time with regard to operated sides (p=0.4). Edema and trismus values were not statistically different between observed groups (p>0.05). Mean pain values recorded in the visual analog scale were not statistically different between groups and patients have not reported major postoperative discomfort and had no need to prolong analgesic medication (p>0.05). CONCLUSION: Both dexamethasone administration routes were effective to control pain, edema and trismus after lower third molar surgeries, presenting similar results.

MATERIAL AND METHOD: This cross-sectional observational study comprised a total of 120 panoramic radiographies of patients aged 5-22 year-old, males and females, attended between 2007 and 2012 at our Institution. The third molars development stage was analyzed based on the method described by Nolla and related with the chronological age of the individual by linear regression. It was considered significant values for linear tendency between 0-1. RESULT: It was observed that both, male patients (R2 = 0.7495) and females (R2 = 0.8507), showed a linear correlation between the third molars development stage and chronological age. It was also noted that the development stages coincided with similar ages in both genders. CONCLUSION: There is a relationship between chronological age and developmental stage of the third molars in the sample studied. These data suggest that this type of analysis should be individualized according to the population characteristics.

  5. Iatrogenic injury to the inferior alveolar nerve : etiology, signs and symptoms, and observations on recovery

    2008-01-01

    The purpose of this prospective, non-randomised, descriptive study is to characterise the neurosensory deficit and associated neurogenic discomfort in 52 patients with iatrogenic injury to the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN). All patients were examined and followed up according to a protocol assessing tactile, thermal, and positional perception as well as two-point discrimination and pain. In 48 patients with IAN injuries of differing etiologies who did not undergo surgery, 32 patients with injury associated with third molar surgery exhibited significant spontaneous improvement of sensory function. Recovery improvement of sensory function was insignificant in the patients with other etiologies. In most patients the level of sensory perception was such that microsurgical repair was only occasionally indicated. Four patients had microsurgical repair; the outcome was favourable in three. IAN injuries associated with third molar surgery, other dento-alveolar surgery or implant surgery occur sufficiently often to render prevention a key issue.

  6. Assessment of the relationship between the mandibular third molar and the mandibular canal using panoramic radiograph and cone beam computed tomography

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the position of the mandibular canal in relation to the mandibular third molar by cone beam CT in cases showing a close relationship between the third molar and the mandibular canal on the panoramic radiograph. The panoramic images and cone beam CT scans of 87 impacted mandibular third molars in 60 patients were evaluated to assess the tooth relationship to the mandibular canal. The clearness of the canal wall and the vertical depth of the lower third molar were evaluated on panoramic radiographs. The lower third molars were assessed using cone beam CT to determine the proximity and position of the canal relative to the roots. In the 66 cases where the canal wall was unclear on the panoramic radiographs, 58 (87.9%) of the third molars had contact between the canal and root; 34 (51.5%) canals were showed an inferior position and 22 (33.3%) showed a linguoinferior position on cone beam CT. Interruption of the canal wall on panoramic radiographs was highly predictive of contact between the mandibular canal and the third molar. Cross sectional CT may be indicated for localization of the mandibular canal in such cases.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The most severe complication after the removal of mandibular third molars is injury to the inferior alveolar nerve or the lingual nerve. These complications are rather uncommon (0.4% to 8.4% and most of them are transient. However, some of them persist for longer than 6 months, which can leave various degrees of long-term permanent disability. While several methods such as pharmacologic therapy, microneurosurgery, autogenous and alloplastic grafting can be used for the treatment of long-standing sensory aberrations in the inferior alveolar nerve, there are few reports regarding low level laser treatment. This paper reports the effects of low level laser therapy in 4 patients with longstanding sensory nerve impairment following mandibular third molar surgery. Methods Four female patients had complaints of paresthesia and dysesthesia of the lip, chin and gingiva, and buccal regions. Each patient had undergone mandibular third molar surgery at least 1 year before. All patients were treated with low level laser therapy. Clinical neurosensory tests (the brush stroke directional discrimination test, 2-point discrimination test, and a subjective assessment of neurosensory function using a visual analog scale were used before and after treatment, and the responses were plotted over time. Results When the neurosensory assessment scores after treatment with LLL therapy were compared with the baseline values prior to treatment, there was a significant acceleration in the time course, as well as in the magnitude, of neurosensory return. The VAS analysis revealed progressive improvement over time. Conclusion Low level laser therapy seemed to be conducive to the reduction of long-standing sensory nerve impairment following third molar surgery. Further studies are worthwhile regarding the clinical application of this treatment modality.

    Full Text Available Ectopic tooth eruption into an area other than the oral cavity is rare. Nasal septum, mandibular condyle, coronoid process and infratemporal fossa space have been reported as frequent locations for ectopic tooth eruption. Ectopic teeth located within the maxillary sinus may be asymptomatic, found only in routine examinations. Headache, sinusitis and nasal obstruction are some of the associated symptoms. The differential diagnosis includes foreign bodies (rhinolith, infections (syphilis and tuberculosis, benign lesions (hemangioma, osteoma, calcifi ed polyp and malign lesions (osteosarcoma. Upper third molars located within the maxillary sinus may be associated with the development of mucocele or dentigerous cyst. The aim of this paper was to describe the case of a 24-year old female patient with an ectopic right upper third molar in the maxillary sinus. A hyperdense area was observed with sinus obliteration, consistent with mucous material.

    Full Text Available The dental retention, mainly of the third molar ones, is presented as a problem of relevant frequency that reaches individuals of all the social classes. In statistical terms, the highest volume of these inclusions is for account of the third molar ones, being the inferiors in higher incidence than the superiors. Accidents and/or complications are inherent to any buccal surgical act. In view of this importance, the objective of this work was to analyze the accidents and complications in surgeries of restrained inferior third molars through questionnaire directed to the specialists inSurgery and Bucomaxilofacial Traumatology. In this study 28 dentalsurgeons, whose average time of specialist in Surgery and Bucomaxilofacial Traumatology was of 15,1 years, with shunting line standard of 11,8 years have been enclosed. The medium time was of 14,5 years, the shortest time of observed specialist was of 1 year and the longest was of 47 years.Considering that the time as specialist presented great dispersion among the searched ones, the results gotten in the study in relation to the several questions of the questionnaire have been analyzed for the number of cases per year. The gotten results have been 61% of injuries of the inferioralveolar nerve, 54% of transoperation hemorrhage and 50% of injuries of the lingual nerve. It is concluded with the present study that the number of accidents and complications is low and getting even lower when the time of the dental surgeon in the specialty grows.

    Traumatic thrombosis of vena cava is rare. Thrombosis of the inferior vena cava diagnosed by uroscanner after blunt abdominal trauma involving the kidney is reported. The Doppler exam confirmed the floating character of the clot. Three days after the initiation of anticoagulant therapy, the thrombus disappeared without any clinical or radiological signs of pulmonary embolism. Fifteen cases of traumatic thrombosis of the inferior vena cava have been described in the literature. Mechanisms, clinical pictures and the management are discussed. PMID:15324965

    Ectopic molar pregnancy is a rare occurrence and consequently not often considered as a diagnostic possibility. We report two cases of molar hydatidiform tubal pregnancy. Diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy was confirmed on clinical biological and sonographic investigations. Diagnosis of molar pregnancy was done on histopathology. The clinical course was favorable for both patients. Although rare, molar changes can occur at any site of an ectopic pregnancy. Clinical diagnosis of a molar pregnancy is difficult but histopathology is the gold standard for diagnosis. PMID:25510265

  8. Radiologic study of mandibular third molar of Korean youths

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The author has made a study on the classification of the mandibular 3rd molars of Korean youths through dental radiography by means of Pell and Gregory's classification and on the prevalence of the dental caries of distal surface of the mandibular 2nd molar adjacent to the mandibular 3rd molars turned anteriorly. The results are as follow; 1. It was found that the largest case number was class I (272 cases, 52.9%) in the relation of the tooth to the ramus of the mandible and 2nd molar. 2. The mesio-angular position was the largest number (239 cases, 46.5%) in the relation of the long axis of the impacted mandibular 3rd molar to the long axis of the 2nd molar. 3. The mesio-angular position of class I was the largest number (140 cases, 27.2%) in the relation of the tooth to the ramus of the mandible and 2nd molar and the long axis of the impacted mandibular 3rd moral to the long axis of the 2nd molar. 4. The average angle of the long axis of mandibular 3rd molar in mesioangular position or horizontal position to the occlusal plane was 143 W 5. Mandibular 3rd molar with lesion such as dental cries or pericoronitis was 73 cases (14.2). 6. The caries incidence rate of the distal surface of the 2nd molar was about 3.1%.

  9. Bilateral lower second molar impaction in teenagers: An emergent problem?

    Full Text Available The frequency of simultaneously impacted second and third molars in teenagers is increasing and becoming a common occurrence in adolescent oral surgery practice. The traditional treatment is the removal of the third molar by conventional access but repositioning of the surgical flap to the distal face of the first molar can predispose to complications such as pericoronitis and delayed healing of the attached gingiva. We present a case in which we use the germectomy approach to remove the impacted third molar for the eruption of the second molar through a vestibular incision. This incision offers excellent bone exposure and exit route for the third molar without disturbing the gingiva attached architecture on the distal face of the first molar providing good healing environment.

    Hydatidiform moles are abnormal gestations characterized by the presence of hydropic changes affecting some or all of the placental villi. Hydatidiform moles arise as a result of the fertilization of an abnormal ovum. In this report, the patient was a 29 year old Asian woman who had induction of ovulation with letrozol. Since the majority of molar gestations arise within the uterine cavity thus the occurrence of a hydatidiform mole within ectopic gestational tissue is rare. It is important to differentiate a hydatidiform mole from a conventional ectopic pregnancy, particularly in infertile women who have a history of ovulation induction. PMID:24851180

    The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of the surgical technique of coronectomy for third molars extraction in close proximity with the inferior alveolar nerve.A literature survey carried out through PubMed, SCOPUS and the Cochrane Library from inceptions to the last access in January 31, 2014, was performed to intercept randomised clinical trials, controlled clinical trials, prospective cohort studies or retrospective studies (with or without control group) that examined the clinical outcomes after coronectomy. The following variable were evaluated: inferior alveolar nerve injury, lingual nerve injury, postoperative adverse effects, pulp disease, root migration and rate of reoperation. Ten articles qualified for the final analysis. The successful coronectomies varied from a minimum of 61.7% to a maximum of 100%. Coronectomy was associated with a low incidence of complications in terms of inferior alveolar nerve injury (0%-9.5%), lingual nerve injury (0%-2%), postoperative pain (1.1%-41.9%) and swelling (4.6%), dry socket infection (2%-12%), infection rate (1%-9.5%) and pulp disease (0.9%). Migration of the retained roots seems to be a frequent occurrence (2%-85.3%).Coronectomy appears to be a safe procedure at least in the short term, with a reduced incidence of postoperative complications. Therefore, a coronectomy can be indicated for teeth that are very close to the inferior alveolar nerve. If a second operation is needed for the remnant roots, they can be removed with a low risk of paresthesia, because the roots are generally receded from the mandubular nerve. PMID:25890111

A fim de melhorar a limpeza, foram colocados numa solucao de hipoclorito de sodio a 1%, durante quatro horas e enxaguados em 10 vol. peroxido de hidrogenio durante 8 horas. Depois, uma tecnica de diafanizacao foi realizada para ilustrar a anatomia do canal radicular. As imagens digitalizadas de todas as amostras foram obtidas atraves da utilizacao de um estereoscopio. Os canais foram visivelmente mais simples em adultos mais velhos: eles foram bem definidas e estreito, por vezes, demasiado estreito. Nucleo de calcificacao nao foi encontrado e havia apenas alguns restos de espacos internucleares.

Fifty-six specimens were selected for this study and distributed into the following four age groups (n. 14): a) Group of children under 13 years, b) Group of [...] adolescents (from 14 to 19 years), c) Group of young adults (from 20 to 39 years) and d) Group of older adults (over 40 years). The specimens were in perfect condition because after extraction they were carefully cleaned, sterilized, identified and stored in water. In order to improve the cleaning, they were placed in 1% sodium hypochlorite solution for four hours and rinsed in 10 vol. hydrogen peroxide for 8 hours. After that, a clearing technique was performed to illustrate root canal anatomy. Digitalized images of all samples were obtained by use of a stereomicroscope. Canals were noticeably simpler in older adults: they were sharply defined and narrow, sometimes too narrow. Calcification nuclei were not found and there were only a few remains of internuclear spaces. The canal system appeared cleaner, clearer and more sharply defined than in the other age groups. It may be concluded that there is a correlation between aging and morphological changes in the mesial root canals of mandibular first molars.

    Full Text Available La variada posición anatómica de los terceros molares mandibulares presenta importantes desafíos asociados a su profundidad y grado de inclinación. Las complicaciones más habituales del procedimiento quirúrgico convencional de extracción se relacionan con la extensa osteotomía y poca visualización d [...] el sitio quirúrgico, que pueden generar consecuencias post-quirúrgicas como inflamación, dolor, trismus, lesiones reversibles e irreversibles del nervio alveolar inferior (NAI) o nervio lingual, riesgo de fractura y formación de defectos periodontales del segundo molar. La implementación de soportes rígidos en la óptica endoscópica ha permitido utilizar esta tecnología para realizar abordajes mínimamente invasivos para remover terceros molares mediante accesos flapless con una mínima osteotomía de la zona oclusal, conservando la pared bucal y lingual a través de la visualización directa y magnificada del sitio quirúrgico, adaptable a los movimientos del paciente durante la intervención. En este reporte se presenta un nuevo procedimiento quirúrgico mínimamente invasivo a través de asistencia endoscópica para la conservación ósea en la remoción de terceros molares mandibulares con riesgo de lesión del nervio alveolar inferior. Abstract in english Anatomic variability of the position of mandibular third molars represents significant challenges associated with its depth and angulation. The most common complications of conventional surgical procedure are related to extensive osteotomy and poor visualization, which can cause postsurgical effects [...] such as inflammation, pain, trismus, reversible and irreversible lesions of the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) or lingual nerve, fracture risk and formation of a deep periodontal defect on the distal aspect of the second molar. The implementation of rigid endoscopy in optics has allowed to use this technology via a minimally invasive approach to remove third molars by a minimally occlusal flapless ostectomy, preserving the buccal and lingual walls through direct and magnified visualization of the surgical site, adaptable to the patient’s movements during the surgery. In this report, we present a new and minimally invasive procedure through endoscopic assistance for bone conservation in the removal of third molars at risk of inferior alveolar nerve injury.

    Full Text Available Defects similar to Molar-Incisor Hypomineralization (MIH) in second primary molars can be found in the literature, being recently named Deciduous Molar Hypomineralization (DMH). Researchers have stated that the presence of DMH in primary dentition represents a risk for MIH in permanent teeth. The ex [...] planation for this association is probably related to the etiological factors. AIM: To investigate prospectively the association between DMH and MIH and the etiologic factors involved in both defects. METHODS: One hundred and thirty four children aged 4 to 6 years from Botelhos, MG, Brazil, were evaluated six-monthly until they completed the eruption of the first permanent molars. A structured questionnaire was developed with questions about the child's health up to the first year of life and the mother's health during pregnancy. RESULTS: It could be noted that, although most children with DMH in the primary dentition had higher incidence of MIH in permanent dentition, this difference was not statistically significant. CONCLUSIONS: None of the possible etiologic factors had associations with the studied enamel defects, even among children who presented two types of enamel defects in the mixed dentition. However, further studies with larger samples should be conducted in order to confirm or refute the findings of the present study.

  2. Relationship between hypoesthesia of the lower lip after extraction of the mandibular third molar and preoperative imaging findings on panoramic X-ray films and multi-planer reconstructive CT scans

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The mandibular third molars are usually located near the inferior alveolar nerve. Surgical removal of these molars may damage the nerve and cause hypoesthesia of the lower lip. Before surgery, it is important to examine the exact positional relationship between the mandibular third molars and the mandibular canal to prevent such complications. A total of 329 lower third molars from 198 patients were studied on panoramic radiographs and computed tomography (CT). We studied the association of hypoesthesia with the spacial relation between the tooth roots and the mandibular canal. Hypoesthesia occurred in 23 of 329 teeth (7.0%). Almost all cases of hypoesthesia resolved within 6 months. However, hypoesthesia of 3 teeth (0.9%) persisted approximately 7 to 12 months after surgery. In 206 of 329 teeth (62.6%), the assumed location of the mandibular canal differed between panoramic radiography and CT. Furthermore, the prediction rate of the incidence of type 1 hypoesthesia on CT (35.5%) was higher than that on panoramic radiography (15.9%). Risk factors related to hypoesthesia included loss of the white line of the root, curve of the mandibular canal, and close proximity of the tooth to the mandibular canal (Type 1) on panoramic radiography. There were also teeth in contact with the canal (0 mm) in all patients in whom hypoesthesia developed. In particular, patients whose mandibular canals were located between the roots of the mandibular third molar or on the lingual side ofular third molar or on the lingual side of the mandibular third molar had a high incidence of hypoesthesia (26.0%). These results suggest that the positional relation between the mandibular third molars and the mandibular canal should be accurately evaluated by CT. Because of its high resolution and ability to examine patients in detail, CT was found to be useful for predicting the risk of inferior alveolar nerve damage before mandibular third molar surgery.

  3. Influence of Unerupted Third Molars on Angle and Condyle Fracture

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sergio Lins de-Azevedo-Vaz

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Condylar and angle fractures are the most common types of mandibular injuries. There is evidence in the literature suggesting that the presence of unerupted lower third molars increases the risk of angle fracture and reduces the chance of condyle fracture. The present paper reports on a case of a 19-year-old Caucasian man who had bilateral angle fracture associated with the two lower unerupted third molars. No other fracture was detected on the panoramic radiograph. This case suggests that unerupted lower third molars increase the risk of angle fracture whereas preventing condyle fracture. Reduction of the bone mass of the angle in the presence of third molars and disruption of the oblique ridge with partially erupted molars support our fi ndings. As the treatment of condyle fracture is more complex, it might not be appropriate to strengthen the mandibular angle, making the mandible more vulnerable to condylar fractures by means of prophylactic extraction of asymptomatic unerupted third molars.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Orthodontic management of anterior open bites is a demanding task for orthodontists. Molar intrusion as a primary means of open bite correction entails the need for appropriate anchorage. Orthodontic mini implants can provide the required mechanical support. The suggested procedure aims to reduce the risk of complications such as root damage or soft tissue irritations while minimizing overall complexity. Methods Three female patients aged 14, 18 and 19 years who decided against a surgical correction were treated with a device consisting of mini implants in the palatal slope, a palatal bar and intrusion cantilevers. Results In all three patients, an open bite reduction of more than a millimeter occurred within four months. An anterior overbite of 2 mm or more could be established within 6 to 9 months. Conclusions The method presented in this article enables the practitioner to use mini implants in an easily accessible insertion site. A lab-side procedure is optional but not required.

    Full Text Available Cirugía del tercer molar es el procedimiento quirúrgico más común en la cavidad oral. Cuando se indica la extracción, una cuidadosa planificación basada en los exámenes clínicos y radiográficos es esencial para evitar complicaciones postoperatorias como sangrado, alveolitis, infecciones, lesiones a [...] los dientes adyacentes, comunicaciones oroantrales o incluso fracturas mandibulares. Aunque es raro, el riesgo de fracturas mandibulares postoperatorias después de la cirugía del tercer molar impactado se relaciona con algunos factores. Reportamos el caso de un paciente de 50 años de edad con queja de dolor en la región del ángulo mandibular izquierdo, quien y declaró que tres semanas antes se había extraído el tercer molar inferior izquierdo. Por tomografía computarizada se confirmó la presencia de una fractura en el ángulo mandibular. Este informe contribuye a mostrar los factores que predisponen para provocar esta lesión después de una revisión de la literatura, que muestran que el clínico los debería tener como consideración cuando indican la extracción de los terceros molares. Para evitar esta complicación, factores como el grado de impactación ósea, profundidad del diente en el hueso, proximidad al canal mandibular, posición en relación a dientes adyacentes, presencia de dilaceraciones radiculares, entre otras, deben ser tomadas en cuenta. Se presenta un caso de fractura mandibular tardía que ocurrió 21 días después de la extracción del tercer molar. Se realizó un tratamiento conservador y después de seis meses de seguimiento radiográfico y clínico, el paciente conservó completamente la función mandibular, con una oclusión normal y sin molestias. Abstract in english Third molar surgery is the most common surgical procedure in the oral cavity. Whenever extraction is indicated, careful planning based on clinical and radiographic examinations is essential to guard against postoperative complications like: bleeding, alveolitis, infections, injury to adjacent teeth, [...] oroantral communications, or even mandibular fractures. Although rare, the risk of postoperative mandibular fractures after third molar impaction surgery is related to some factors. Our case report a 50-year-old white female patient with a complaint of pain in the region of the left mandibular angle and stated that three weeks before she had the left mandibular third molar extracted, which computerized tomographic confirmed the presence of a fracture in the mandibular angle. However, our report contributes to showing the predisposing factors to cause this injury after a review of the literature, showing the clinician what they should take like consideration when they indicate the extraction of third molars. To avoid this complication, factors like bony impaction, depth of tooth within bone, proximity to the inferior dental canal, tooth position in relation to adjacent teeth, the presence of root dilacerations and others must be taken into account. A case of late mandibular fracture that occurred 21 days after third molar extraction is reported. Conservative treatment was adopted and after six-months of radiographic and clinical follow-up, the patient had fully preserved mandibular function, normal occlusion and no discomfort.

Las combinaciones cuádruples de grupos secundarios fueron las más abundantes en leguminosas (33%) y la doble en las no leguminosas (61%). En algunas de las especies más representativas se observó un efecto marcado de la época, el tipo de bosque y la ubicación geográfica, en la presencia de dichos grupos funcionales. Sin embargo, dependió de las particularidades fitoquímicas en cada caso. Mediante pruebas microhistológicas se observó un amplio rango de aceptabilidad por parte de los bovinos y caprinos.  En sentido general, los bovinos consumieron ávidamente aquellas especies con pocas combinaciones de metabolitos, mientras que los caprinos no mostraron preferencias específicas. Se concluye que las especies analizadas contienen en su biomasa algunos metabolitos secundarios cuya presencia en algunos casos varía con la época, el tipo de bosque y su ubicación. Los fenoles y los alcaloides son los grupos que requieren mayor atención en cuanto a su posible repercusión antinutricional, por su elevada distribución en la vegetación. Abstract in english The presence of some groups of secondary metabolites (phenols, condensed tannins, saponins, cyanogens and alkaloids) in the edible biomass of 41 species in the tropical deciduous forest vegetation of the Central Plains, Venezuela were investigated. Forty four per cent of the species corresponded to [...] leguminous plants. The Mimosoide subfamily contained 50% of the cases; while Faboide and Caesalpinoide were present in 28 and 22%, respectively. Phenols (83%) and alkaloids (61%) showed a greater general distribution. The quadruple combinations of secondary groups were the most abundant in leguminous (33%) and the double in non leguminous species (61%). In some representative species, a marked effect of the season, the forest type, and the geographical location were observed. However, it depended of the phytochemical particularities. By microhistological tests a wide range of acceptability were observed. In general, cattle consumed eagerly species with few metabolites combinations; while goats showed non specific preferences. The edible biomass of analyzed species contains some secondary metabolites groups whose presence, in some cases, varies with season, the forest type and location. Phenols and alkaloids are the groups that require bigger attention for their possible antinutricional repercussion.

Abstract in english We present information on the use of sporomes of Tremelloscypha gelatinosa as a food source among native people from Nandayalu, a locality situated SE of Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas, Mexico. The fungus is locally named "nangañaña" and its fruit bodies are collected during part of the rainy season (Jun [...] e-August) and are used for familiar consumption. Their methods of collecting and preparation are described and photographs of the basidiomes and habit are provided. Tremelloscypha gelatinosa was found growing below trees of Gymnopodium floribundum in the tropical deciduous forest of the Central Chiapas basin. It is a heterobasidiomycete belonging to the order Sebacinales and its phylogenetic placement among proven ectomycorrhizal sebacinoid species suggests its probable ectomycorrhizal symbiosis with plant roots, thus playing a relevant ecological role in tropical ecosytems where it occurs. Tremelloscypha gelatinosa is an infrequently encountered fungus, currently known from Jamaica (type locality), Florida (USA), Yucatán and Quintana Roo (Mexico) and until now unreported as a wild edible fungus.

    Full Text Available The aim of this study was to discuss therapy possibilities in the management of molar incisor hypomineralization. Molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH is defined as hypomineralization of one or more first permanent molars frequently affecting incisors. Etiology of MIH is not fully clarified and numerous etiological factors have been cited. Hypomineralized molars are more prone to caries, cause severe restorative problems and are frequently extracted due to serious damage and caries complications. Incisors can present demarcated enamel opacities, while enamel breakdown is uncommon. Clinically, affected molars can be sensitive to thermal and chemical irritations even when there is no enamel breakdown. Molars can be sensitive to mechanical irritations making even regular tooth brushing painful. Specific problems related to the treatment of these teeth are sensitivity and occlusion in molars and aesthetics in incisors. Considering the fact that permanent first molars with severe defects and incisors demand complex and multidisciplinary treatment they present serious problem for the patient as well as for the dentist.

    Full Text Available   Background and Aims: Impacted third molar reduces the bone level in the distal aspect of second molar, and sometimes it can lead to root resorption of the adjacent tooth. The purpose of this study was to determine this resorption using panoramic and periapical radiographs.   Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional descriptive study 54 patient (28 men, 26 women above 15 years old with the average of 22 years in Oral and Maxillofacial Department of Tehran University were studied. A periapical radiography from the third molar and a panoramic radiograph were taken from each patient (Because of their routine use and evaluation of accuracy of panoramic compared with periapical, and the magnitude of the root resorption for the second molar was determined by 2 observers and written in a questionnaire. Data were analyzed using Fisher test.   Results: The prevalence of the root resorption of the second molar adjacent to the impacted third molar in the panoramic and the periapical radiographies, with respect to the limitation of the sample size were 46.3% and 31.5%, respectively, with 95% confidence(P>0.05. Most of these resorptions were in the cervical third of the second molar roots and in cases in which the third molars were mesially oriented or horizontal. There was also no significant difference between panoramic and periapical radiographs.   Conclusion: Due to the increased risk of the resorption of the second molar adjacent to the third molar, extraction of the impacted third molars, especiall y mesially oriented or horizontal ones are recommended.

    Objective The purpose of the present study was to investigate the frequency of presence of third molar teeth and their distribution in each jaw and each side, according to sex, in a group of orthodontic patients with permanent dentition from northern Greece. Methods The sample included panoramic radiographs from 220 patients with permanent dentition (mean age 13.62 ± 1.81). The ?2 test was used to assess the relationships between the variables, and the Fisher’s exact test was used in cases where the expected frequencies in each cell were <5. Results The frequency of third molar presence was 79.1%, and 20.9% was the frequency of third molar agenesis. Intersexual differences in the number of third molars was not statistically significant. There was a correlation between the distribution of third molars on the right and the left side (Fisher’s exact test = 100.788; P = 0). The two sides showed the same tendency toward the presence or absence of third molars. A correlation was also found between the distribution of maxillary and mandibular third molars (Fisher’s exact test = 24.372; P = 0). In each jaw, the presence or absence of third molars was highly related to the number of third molars found in the other jaw. Conclusion The present results showed that in this orthodontic group of northern Greek patients, presence accounted for 79.1% and agenesis for 20.9%. No significant difference was found between the frequencies of third molar presence on the left and right sides in either the maxilla or mandible. PMID:22701086

    This case report presents the successful replacement of 1 first molar and 3 second molars by the mesial inclination of 4 impacted third molars. A woman, 23 years 6 months old, had a chief complaint of crowding of her anterior teeth and linguoclination of a second molar on the left side. The panoramic radiographic images showed that the maxillary and mandibular third molars on both sides were impacted. Root resorption on the distal surfaces of the maxillary second molars was suspected. The patient was given a diagnosis of Angle Class II Division 1 malocclusion with severe crowding of the anterior teeth and 4 impacted third molars. After we extracted the treated maxillary second premolars and the second molars on both sides, the treated mandibular second premolar and the second molar on the left side, and the root canal-filled mandibular first molar on the right side, the 4 impacted third molars were uprighted and formed part of the posterior functional occlusion. The total active treatment period was 39 months. The maxillary and mandibular third molars on both sides successfully replaced the first and second molars. The replacement of a damaged molar by an impacted third molar is a useful treatment option for using sound teeth. PMID:26038080

    Full Text Available The posterior position in the arches is one of the factors that underlies the poor prognosis of molar teeth (M. It is speculated that M do not benefit from the oral hygiene routine as well as non-molars (NM do. This study evaluated the response of M and NM to supragingival control during a 6-month period in 25 smokers (S and 25 never-smokers (NS with moderate-to-severe periodontitis. One calibrated examiner assessed visible plaque (VPI and gingival bleeding (GBI indexes, periodontal probing depth (PPD, bleeding on probing (BOP, and clinical attachment loss (CAL at days 0 (baseline, 30 and 180. At baseline, M showed significantly higher mean values of VPI (p = 0.017 and PPD (p < 0.001 compared with NM; CAL was also greater in M (p < 0.001 and was affected by smoking (p = 0.007. The reductions obtained for periodontal indicators at day 180 showed similar responses between M and NM. For CAL, M (NS 0.57 ± 0.50; S 0.67 ± 0.64 and NM (NS 0.38 ± 0.23; S 0.50 ± 0.33 reached an almost significant difference (p = 0.05. Smoking did not influence the response to treatment. Multilevel analysis revealed that, only for PDD reductions, the interaction between sites, teeth and patient was significant (p < 0.001. It was concluded that M benefit from an adequate regimen of supragingival biofilm control; therefore, supragingival condition should be considered in the prognosis of molar teeth.

Foram utilizados 50 molares inferiores cujas raízes mesiais apresentavam dois forames apic [...] ais nitidamente separados (mésio-vestibular e mésio-lingual). Após o acesso à câmara pulpar de forma convencional e remoção do tecido pulpar, o comprimento de trabalho foi definido a 1 mm do ápice radicular. Os dentes foram divididos aleatoriamente em cinco grupos (n= 10) de acordo com o tipo de instrumento utilizado no alargamento cervical. No grupo 1, o IAI foi definido sem o prévio alargamento dos terços médio e cervical das raízes. Nos grupos 2 a 5, o terço cervical e médio do canal radicular foi alargado com as brocas de Gates-Glidden, instrumentos Pro Taper, Endo Flare e brocas LA Axxes, respectivamente. A determinação do IAI foi realizada manualmente com limas tipo K em ordem crescente de diâmetro a partir da lima 08 até se chegar ao instrumento que permitisse ao operador ter a sensação tátil do mesmo estar firmemente ajustado ao CRT. O instrumento que correspondeu ao IAI foi fixado no interior do canal radicular com cianocrilato de metila. Com o IAI posicionado, os dentes foram seccionados transversalmente até 1 mm do ápice. As seções transversais do CRT foram observadas através da microscopia eletrônica de varredura e os desajustes entre o diâmetro do canal e o diâmetro do IAI foram calculados com a função "régua" (FEG) do software do próprio microscópio. Os resultados foram avaliados estatisticamente pelo testes de Kruskal-Wallis e Dunn ao nível de significância de 5%. Houve diferenças estatisticamente significantes entre os grupos (p Abstract in english This study investigated the influence of cervical preflaring with different rotary instruments on determination of the initial apical file (IAF) in mesiobuccal roots of mandibular molars. Fifty human mandibular molars whose mesial roots presented two clearly separated apical foramens (mesiobuccal an [...] d mesiolingual) were used. After standard access opening and removal of pulp tissue, the working length (WL) was determined at 1 mm short of the root apex. Five groups (n=10) were formed at random, according to the type of instrument used for cervical preflaring. In group 1, the size of the IAF was determined without preflaring of the cervical and middle root canal thirds. In groups 2 to 5, preflaring was performed with Gates-Glidden drills, ProTaper instruments, EndoFlare instruments and LA Axxes burs, respectively. Canals were sized manually with K-files, starting with size 08 K-files, inserted passively up to the WL. File sizes were increased until a binding sensation was felt at the WL and the size of the file was recorded. The instrument corresponding to the IAF was fixed into the canal at the WL with methylcyanoacrylate. The teeth were then sectioned transversally 1 mm short of the apex, with the IAF in position. Cross-sections of the WL region were examined under scanning electron microscopy and the discrepancies between canal diameter and the diameter of IAF were calculated using the tool "rule" (FEG) of the microscope's proprietary software. The measurements (µm) were analyzed statistically by Kruskal-Wallis and Dunn's tests at 5% significance level. There were statistically significant differences among the groups (p0.05) were found among the rotary instruments. In conclusion, cervical preflaring improved IAF fitting to the canals at the WL in mesiobuccal roots of maxillary first molars. The rotary instruments evaluated in this study did not differ from each other regarding the discrepancies produced between the IAF size and canal diameter at the WL.

    Full Text Available Evidências significativas sugerem a inter-relação existente entre a região de furca de dentes multirradiculados com o desenvolvimento de lesões endo-periodontais, principalmente, quando da presença do canal cavo-inter-radicular. Com o objetivo de compreender os mecanismos envolvidos na etiopatogenia de tais doenças periodontais, assim como propiciar o diagnóstico e o tratamento precoces, buscou-se melhor caracterizar essa região dando ênfase à morfologia do assoalho da câmara pulpar. Para este estudo foram selecionados 42 molares humanos extraídos, sendo 21 superiores e 21 inferiores. Após realizadas as aberturas coronárias e localizadas as entradas dos canais radiculares, os dentes tiveram parte das porções coronária e radicular cortada perpendicularmente ao longo do seu eixo, com o auxílio de disco de carburundum. Depois de uma criteriosa limpeza dos espécimes, esses foram secos em câmara de ponto crítico, sendo, a seguir, preparados para análise em microscópio eletrônico de varredura (Philips®, modelo XL30, Holanda. Os dados foram analisados através do Teste U de Mann- Whitney e do teste Qui-quadrado. Com base nos resultados obtidos e de acordo com a literatura pertinente, pôde-se verificar que: 1. o diâmetro e o número de túbulos dentinários encontrados por mm2 assim como a presença de foraminas no assoalho da câmara pulpar sugerem a permeabilidade dessa região; 2. o diâmetro maior de algumas foraminas identifica a presença do canal cavo-inter-radicular. Mounting evidence has suggested a relationship between the existing furcation region in multirradicular teeth and the development of endoperiodontal lesions. This effect is particulary pronounced when accessory foramina are present. In order to improve our understanding of the mechanisms involved in the etiopathogeny of periodontal disease, as well as facilitate early diagnosis and treatment, an attempt was made to characterize this region with special attention to the morphology of the pulp chamber floor. Forty-two extracted human molars (21 maxillary and 21 mandibular molars were used in this study. After the crows had been resected and the root canals openings identified, part of the coronal and radicular sections of the teeth were split longitudinally their axes with carborundum disc. After meticulous cleansing, the teeth were dried in a critical point dry chamber and then prepared for analysis in a Philips® XL-30, Holland, SEM. The collected data were submitted to statistical analysis by Mann-Whitney Test and Qui-square Test. The results obtained and a revision of literature shows that: 1. the number and diameter of dentinal tubules per mm2 found, as well as the presence of foramina on the pulp chamber floor are indicators of permeability in this region; 2. the wider diameter of some foramina indicate the presence of accessory foramina.

  2. Elongational viscosity of narrow molar mass distribution polystyrene

    Bach, Anders; Almdal, Kristoffer

    2003-01-01

    Transient and steady elongational viscosity has been measured for two narrow molar mass distribution polystyrene melts of molar masses 200 000 and 390 000 by means of a filament stretching rheometer. Total Hencky strains of about five have been obtained. The transient elongational viscosity rises above the linear viscoelastic prediction at intermediate strains, indicating strain hardening. The steady elongational viscosities are monotone decreasing functions of elongation rate. At elongation rates larger than the inverse reptation time, the steady elongational viscosity scales linearly with molar mass at fixed elongation rate.

Durante el período octubre 2002 -septiembre 2006, se estimaron (i) masa de la hojarasca (cuatro años) y contenido de nutrientes de la hojarasca (un año), (ii) descomposición y dinámica de nutrientes de hojarasca (un año) y de la corteza de Saxegothaea conspicua, y (iii) mineralización neta de nitrógeno (N-min) en el suelo in situ (un año). El aporte de hojarasca en los cuatro sitios fluctúa desde 3.5 hasta 5.8 ton ha-1 año-1, y es temporalmente menor en bosque caducifolio manejado, respecto del caducifolio sin manejo. Además, presentan una estacionalidad en los siempreverdes que es diferente, respecto de los deciduos. La hojarasca se descompone más rápidamente (promedio 32 % pérdida de masa después de un año) que la corteza (8 %), pero no se presentaron diferencias significativas en la hojarasca. El N neto en la hojarasca de los bosques siempreverdes disminuye durante la descomposición, pero se incrementa en la hojarasca de los deciduos. La N-mineralización neta del suelo fue completa en el bosque siempreverde prístino, intermedia en los bosques deciduos y el más baja en el bosque siempreverde alterado. Dada la ausencia de réplicas en las parcelas, no puede ser demostrado el impacto definido del tipo de bosque o régimen de manejo en el ciclo interno de nutrientes. Sin embargo, los resultados sugieren que el manejo silvícola puede afectar el reciclaje de nutrientes por la alteración en la composición de especies y estructura del bosque, aun cuando en el bosque secundario deciduo una extracción selectiva de madera en tiempo reciente (cinco años), no afecta la descomposición de la hojarasca o los montos de mineralización del nitrógeno. Abstract in english South Chilean forest ecosystems represent one of the largest areas of old-growth temperate rainforests remaining in the Southern hemisphere and have a high ecological value, but suffer from deforestation, invasion by exotic species, fragmentation, and increasing atmospheric nitrogen (N) deposition. [...] To support sustainable forest management, more knowledge is required on nutrient cycling of these ecosystems. Therefore, a descriptive study of nutrient dynamics was done in four Valdivian rainforests in the lower Andes range of south Chile: old-growth and altered evergreen stands and unmanaged and managed secondary deciduous stands. Time series were measured for (i) mass (four year) and nutrient content (N, K, Ca, and Mg; one year) of litterfall, (ii) decomposition and nutrient dynamics (N, C, K, Ca, Mg, and P; one year) of leaf litter and Saxegothaea conspicua bark litter, and (iii) in situ topsoil net N mineralization (one year). Litterfall in the four stands ranged from 3.5 to 5.8 ton ha-1 yr-1, was temporarily lower in the managed than in the unmanaged deciduous stand and had a different seasonality in the evergreen stands than in the deciduous stands. Leaf litter decomposed faster (on average 32 % mass loss after one year) than bark litter (8 %) but without significant differences between leaf litter types. Net N in evergreen leaf litter decreased during decomposition but increased in deciduous leaf litter. Net soil N mineralization was fastest in the pristine evergreen stand, intermediate in the deciduous stands and slowest in the altered evergreen forest. Given the absence of r

    Full Text Available Aim: To evaluate the prevalence of intraoperative accidents associated with extraction of third molars and identify possible risk factors. Methods: Prospective study with patients undergoing third molar surgery by residents of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Service at the Federal University of P [...] arana. Epidemiological data were collected from preoperative evaluation forms. During the surgical procedure were evaluated the radiographic position classifications of all third molars removed, using methods such as osteotomy and/or tooth section, time for the procedure and occurrence of any complication. Results: The students extracted a total of 323 teeth. The mean surgical time was 45 min. Conclusions: The prevalence of intraoperative accidents during extraction of third molars was 6.19%. The most prevalent accident was maxillary tuberosity fracture, followed by hemorrhage. Age, positioning of the teeth and use of the techniques of osteotomy and tooth section are possible risk factors.

    Full Text Available This paper presents a review of density measurements for binary systems containing 1,3,5-trimethylbenzene (mesitylene with a variety of organic compounds at atmospheric pressure. Literature data of the binary systems were divided into nine basic groups by the type of contained organic compound with mesitylene. The excess molar volumes calculated from the experimental density values have been compared with literature data. Densities were measured by a few experimental methods, namely using a pycnometer, a dilatometer or a commercial apparatus. The overview of the experimental data and shape of the excess molar volume curve versus mole fraction is presented in this paper. The excess molar volumes were correlated by Redlich–Kister equation. The standard deviations for fitting of excess molar volume versus mole fraction are compared. Found literature data cover a huge temperature range from (288.15 to 343.15 K.

    Thorough knowledge of root canal morphology and unusual anatomy of the tooth is critical for successful endodontic treatment. Although the most common configuration is two roots and three root canals, mandibular molars might have many different combinations. In the literature, it is less described about three mesial canals and two distal canals in mandibular second molars, indicating a rare anatomical configuration. A case of unusual root canal morphology is presented to demonstrate anatomical variations in mandibular molars. Endodontic therapy was performed in a mandibular second molar with five separate canals, three mesial and two distal. This report points out the importance of looking for additional canals and unusual canal morphology, because knowledge of their existence might occasionally enable clinicians to treat a case successfully that otherwise might have ended in failure. In conclusion, every attempt should be made to find and treat all root canals of a tooth. PMID:23349182

    Treatment of the molar furcation defect is a challenge to the dental professional. Responses of molar furcation sites to both closed and open surgical debridement have not been shown to result in significant clinical improvement or bone fill. Regenerative techniques using grafting materials, guided tissue regeneration with resorbable and nonresorbable membranes, coronally positioned flaps, and combination techniques are more frequently used to treat class II molar furcations. The clinical responses to these surgical approaches have shown varied results. This article reviews some of the studies on regeneration in furcation defects as well as some of the uniqueness and complexities of the furcation problem. The bone morphology differences in molar bifurcation and trifurcation defects are discussed, and a bone morphologic classification is presented in an effort to standardize future regenerative studies in class II furcations.

Their success is a result of their gnawing incisors, battery of grinding molars and diastema that spatially and functionally separates the incisors from the molars. Until now these traits defined all rodents. Here, we describe a new species and genus of shrew-rat from Sulawesi Island, Indonesia that is distinguished from all other rodents by the absence of cheek teeth.

  18. Influence of molar ratios on properties of magnesium oxychloride cement

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A parametric study has been conducted to investigate the influences of the molar ratios of MgO/MgCl2 and H2O/MgCl2 on the properties of magnesium oxychloride (MOC) cement. By an integrated assessment of the experimental studies of strength development and X-ray diffractograms, together with application of the relevant phase diagram, it is recognized that the molar ratios of MgO/MgCl2 and H2O/MgCl2 can significantly affect the properties of MOC cement. For a MOC cement paste possessing a dominance of 5MgO.MgCl2.8H2O (phase 5) crystals, the molar ratios of MgO/MgCl2 of 11-17 and H2O/MgCl2 of 12-18 are found to be the most favorite ranges for design purpose. The choose of the molar ratio of H2O/MgCl2 is, however, largely depends on the molar ratio of MgO/MgCl2 mainly for controlling workability of paste. Therefore, the most critical parameter to be selected in the design process is the molar ratio of MgO/MgCl2, although the reactivity of the MgO powder is also important. Besides, the molar ratio can also be affected by the reactivity of the MgO powder to be employed. It is believed that a molar ratio of MgO/MgCl2 of 13, the most suitable one shown in this study, can be used as a starting point in the normal practice

    Full Text Available Familial recurrent molar pregnancy is an exceedingly rare condition, in which completehydatidiform moles are mostly diploid but biparental in origin and the outcome of subsequentpregnancies is likely to be a hydatidiform mole or other type of reproductiveloss. We previously reported a case of familial molar pregnancy (family K comprisingfive affected members (four sisters and one of their cousins each with at least one hydatidiformmole (HM. In addition to the molar pregnancies, these patients have a total ofthree miscarriages and 8 normal pregnancies leading to healthy children; but the youngestmember of this family has given birth to a boy with Down syndrome.Our second family (case S includes two sisters with diploid biparental complete moles.They have a total of six molar pregnancies with no living child. Recently the younger sisterhad a partial molar pregnancy with apparently normal XX fetus accompanying diffusemolar changes of the placenta that led to preeclampsia and preterm delivery.Overall, these families have had 26 pregnancies including 12 molar pregnancies (completeor partial and three abortions.We concluded that these families are predisposed to various genetic mutations, chromosomalabnormalities and clinical manifestations, which affect their offspring. Furtherstudies of patients are needed to determine any relationship between a history of familialmolar pregnancy and trisomy or other chromosomal abnormalities in offspring and geneticmutations in the products of conception to complete the puzzle and manage familialmolar pregnancy.

  2. Standard molar enthalpy of formation of methoxyacetophenone isomers

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Highlights: • Experimental and computational energetic study of methoxyacetophenone isomers. • Enthalpies of formation and phase transition determined by calorimetric techniques. • Quantum chemical calculations allowed estimation of enthalpies of formation. • Structure and energy correlations were established. - Abstract: Values of the standard (po = 0.1 MPa) molar enthalpy of formation of 2?-, 3?- and 4?-methoxyacetophenones were derived from their standard molar energy of combustion, in oxygen, at T = 298.15 K, measured by static bomb combustion calorimetry. The Calvet high temperature vacuum sublimation technique was used to measure the enthalpies of sublimation/vaporization of the compounds studied. The standard molar enthalpies of formation of the three compounds, in the gaseous phase, at T = 298.15 K, have been derived from the corresponding standard molar enthalpies of formation in the condensed phase and the standard molar enthalpies for the phase transition. The results obtained are ?(232.0 ± 2.5), ?(237.7 ± 2.7) and ?(241.1 ± 2.1) kJ · mol?1 for 2?-, 3?- and 4?-methoxyacetophenone, respectively. Standard molar enthalpies of formation were also estimated from different methodologies: the Cox scheme as well as two different computational approaches using density functional theory-based B3LYP and the multilevel G3 methodologies

  3. Molar exergy and flow exergy of pure chemical fuels

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Expressions of the molar exergy and of the molar flow exergy of a pure chemical fuel are deduced rigorously from the basic principles of thermodynamics. It is shown that molar exergy and molar flow exergy coincide when the temperature T and the pressure p of the fuel are equal to the temperature TB and the pressure pB of the environment; a general relation between exergy and flow exergy is proved as a consequence. The deduction of the expression of the molar exergy of a chemical fuel for non-standard values of TB and pB is clarified. For hydrogen, carbon dioxide and several hydrocarbons, tables are reported to allow a simple calculation of the molar exergy of the fuel for any value of the temperature TB and the relative humidity ?B of the environment, in the range 268.15 K ? TB ? 313.15 K and 0.1 ? ?B ? 1, with reference to the standard atmospheric pressure. Additional tables are provided to evaluate the difference between the exergy or the flow exergy of the fuel in its given initial state and the exergy at T = TB and p = pB. In these tables, it is assumed that fuel and environment have the same temperature and that the fuel pressure varies in the range 1.01325 bar ? p ? 200 bar; the fuel may be gas or liquid.

    Full Text Available Introducción: en la edad escolar el diente permanente más afectado por caries dental es el primer molar permanente, y la prevalencia de caries en ellos se asocia con actividad futura de caries. Por erupcionar sin haber exfoliado ningún elemento primario, las madres, desconocen que este es un diente [...] permanente. Su destrucción parcial o total repercute en el desarrollo y crecimiento maxilofacial y la oclusión. Objetivos: describir la afectación por caries dental en los primeros molares permanentes en escolares, así como el conocimiento de la madre sobre estos. Materiales y métodos: se realizó un estudio observacional, descriptivo y transversal en la Escuela Primaria Máximo Gómez, de Alamar, en febrero de 2013. A 211 escolares se le efectuó examen bucal, registrándose los primeros molares sanos, cariados, restaurados y perdidos. Se entrevistaron a las madres para saber sobre su conocimiento del primer molar permanente. Resultados: el 40,3 % tuvo al menos un primer molar permanente afectado. La frecuencia fue, en masculino, 50,6 %, y en la edad de 11 años, 28,2 %. El índice dental cariado obstruido perdido fue en el 26 y 46, de promedio 0,81 y 81 %, respectivamente. El desconocimiento de las madres fue del 64,3 % del total. Conclusiones: casi la mitad de la muestra presenta al menos un primer molar permanente afectado por caries dental y la edad de 11 años es la más frecuente. No se señalan diferencias en cuanto al sexo. La experiencia mayor de caries dental la presentan los molares 46 y 26. La mayoría de las madres no tiene conocimientos acerca del primer molar permanente. Abstract in english Background: in school age, the tooth most affected by dental caries is the first permanent molar, and the caries prevalence in them is associated to the future caries activity. Due to its eruption without the exfoliation of primary elements, mothers do not know that this is a permanent tooth. Its pa [...] rtial or total destruction affects the maxillofacial growth and development and leads to malocclusion. Aims: describing the damage due to dental caries in the first permanent molars in school children, and also their mothers’ knowledge on them. Material and methods: we carried out a cross-sectional, descriptive, observational study in the Primary School Maximo Gómez, of Alamar, in February 2013. Buccal exam was made to 211 schoolchildren, recording the healthy, carious, restored and lost first permanent molars. Mothers were interviewed to identify their knowledge on the first permanent molar. Results: 40,3 % of the sample had at least one permanent molar damaged. The frequency was, in male schoolchildren, 50,6 %, and at the age of 11 years, 28,2 %. The carious-obstructed-lost dental index in the 26 and 46 teeth was an average of 0,81 and 81 % respectively. Mothers’ lack of knowledge was 64,3 % of the total. Conclusions: almost half of the sample had at least one permanent molar damaged by dental caries and the most frequent age is 11 years. There are not differences according to de gender. The highest existence of dental caries is in 26 and 46 molars. Most of the mothers do not know about the first permanent molar.

    In November 2014, a review of literature concerning prevalence data of Molar Incisor Hypomineralisation (MIH) and Hypomineralised Second Primary Molars (HSPM) was performed. A search of PubMed online databases was conducted for relevant articles published until November 2014. The reference lists of all retrieved articles were hand-searched. Studies were included after assessing the eligibility of the full-text article. Out of 1078 manuscripts, a total of 157 English written publications were selected based on title and abstract. Of these 157, 60 were included in the study and allocated as 52 MIH and 5 HSPM, and 3 for both MIH and HSPM. These studies utilised the European Academy of Paediatric Dentistry judgment criteria, the modified index of developmental defects of enamel (mDDE) and self-devised criteria, and demonstrated a wide variation in the reported prevalence (MIH 2.9-44 %; HSPM 0-21.8 %). Most values mentioned were representative for specific areas. More studies were performed in cities compared with rural areas. A great variation was found in calibration methods, number of participants, number of examiners and research protocols between the studies. The majority of the prevalence studies also investigated possible aetiological factors. To compare MIH and HSPM prevalence and or aetiological data around the world, standardisation of such studies seems essential. Standardisation of the research protocol should include a clearly described sample of children (minimum number of 300 for prevalence and 1000 for aetiology studies) and use of the same calibration sets and methods whereas aetiological studies need to be prospective in nature. A standardised protocol for future MIH and HSPM prevalence and aetiology studies is recommended. PMID:25894247

    The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of missing and impacted third molars in people aged 25 years and above. The study sample of 3,799 patients was chosen randomly from patients who visited Pusan National University Dental Hospital and had panoramic radiographs taken. The data collected included presence and impaction state, angulation, and depth of impaction of third molars, and radiographically detected lesions of third molars and adjacent second molars. A greater percentage of men than women retained at least one third molar. The incidence of third molars decreased with increasing age. The incidence of partially impacted third molars greatly declined after the age of 30. Vertically impacted maxillary third molars and horizontally impacted mandibular third molars were most frequent in all age groups. Among the maxillary third molars, those impacted below the cervical line of the second molar were most frequent in all age groups, and among the mandibular third molars, deeply impacted third molars were most frequent in those aged over 40. Dental caries was the most common radiographic lesion of the third molars. Mesioangularly impacted third molars showed radiographic lesions in 13 (9.5%) adjacent maxillary second molars and 117 (27.4%) mandibular second molars. The number of remaining third molars decreased and the percentage of Class C depth increased with age. Caries was the most frequent lesion in third molars. Partially impacted mesioangular third molars showed a high incidence of caries or periodontal bone loss of the adjacent second molar. Regular oral examination will be essential to keep asymptomatic third molars in good health.

    Full Text Available Mini-screw implants have been commonly used for orthodontic anchorage. However, the behavior of implants may vary according to their location, inclination, loading position and loading direction. The objective of this study was to apply fi nite element to analyze stress distribution around mini-implants inserted into the buccal cortical bone, in the inferior molar region, when a force of 3 N was applied, varying implant inclination and loading direction, also simulating immediate loading and osseointegration conditions. We carried out a threedimensional analysis of a human cadaveric mandible and of a 9 mm length, 1.5 mm diameter titanium implant. The implant model was introduced into the buccal cortical bone, between the fi rst and second mandibular molars. Finite-element analysis of the implant-bone structure was carried out applying a constant force of 3 N at varying angles (15, 30, 45, 60, 75, and 90 degrees, and in fi ve different positions along the bone surface axis (perpendicularly, vertically at ± 10 degrees, and horizontally at ± 20 degrees. Out of all combinations tested, stress affected only the cortical bone, not being intense enough to cause cortical bone resorption. Stress distribution varied slightly (8.55 to 38.74 Mpa due to implant inclination and loading direction. Immediate loading generated greater tensions (12.70 to 38.74 Mpa when compared to osseointegration (8.55 to 21.44 Mpa. A force of 3 N did not result in a tension that could cause cortical bone resorption. Immediate loading resulted in greater tensions to the bone, regardless of implant inclination and loading direction.

    Full Text Available Background/Aim. Surgical extraction of lower third molars is followed by mild or severe postoperative pain which peaks at maximal intensity in the first 12 hours and has a significant impact on a patient’s postoperative quality of life. The use of long-acting local anaesthetics is a promising strategy to improve postoperative analgesia. The aim of the present study was to investigate analgesic parameters and patient satisfaction after using 0.5% levobupivacaine (Lbup, 0.5% bupivacaine (Bup and 2% lidocaine with epinephrine 1:80,000 (Lid + Epi for an inferior alveolar nerve block following lower third molar surgery. Methods. A total of 102 patients (ASA I were divided into three groups, each of which received either 3 mL of Lbup, Bup or Lid + Epi. The intensity of postoperative analgesia was measured using a verbal rating scale (VRS. The total amounts of rescue analgesics were recorded on the first and during seven postoperative days. Patients satisfaction was noted using a modified verbal scales. Results. A significantly higher level of postoperative pain was recorded in Lid + Epi group compared to Bup and Lbup groups. No significant differences were seen between Bup and Lbup, but a significant reduction in the need for rescue analgesics was seen postoperatively in both Lbup and Bup (50% in comparison with Lid + Epi (80% in the first 24 hours. The same significant trend in rescue analgesic consumption was recorded for seven postoperative days. Patients’ overall satisfaction was significantly lower for Lid + Epi (10% than for Lbup (56% and Bup (52%. Conclusion. The use of a new and long-acting local anaesthetic 0.5% levobupivacaine is clinically relevant and effective for an inferior alveolar nerve block and postoperative pain control after third molar surgery. In our study Lbup and Bup controled postoperative pain more efficiently after lower third molar surgery compared to Lid + Epi. [Projekat Ministarstva nauke Republike Srbije, br. 175021

    1996-01-01

    Bilateral inferior turbinoplasty was performed in cases of chronic nasal obstruction, in which conservative treatment had failed. Forty-five patients without significant septal deviation and with chronic nasal obstruction were objectively evaluated by acoustic rhinometry (AR) before and 3-6 months after turbinoplasty, in order to assess the changes of the dimensions of the nasal cavity obtained. Mucosal turbinate hypertrophy (defined objectively by AR) was present in 76% of the cases. Satisfactory subjective nasal patency was achieved in 93% of patients. Turbinoplasty resulted in an increase of 22% at the minimum cross-sectional area, 37% at the cross-sectional area 3.3 cm from the nostrils, and 47% at the cross-sectional area 4.0 cm from the nostrils. The increase was not related to the subjective result of the operation. Tendency to crusting and to vasomotor symptoms were related to unsatisfactory results. No crusting or bleeding were observed.

    Full Text Available Background: In molar pregnancy, when hydatidiform changes are local and some embryonic components are observed, the term of partial mole is used. The risk of persistent trophoblastic tumor after partial mole is much lower than complete mole. In this persistent cases almost all are non metastatic. The aim of this study is to report a case of uterine rupture following incomplete molar pregnancy.Case presentation: The patient was a 26 year old woman with obstetric history of an abortion and one molar pregnancy and no child. She was referred to emergency unit in Ghaem University Hospital, Mashhad, Iran in May 2011. She had an evacuation curettage following molar pregnancy three months before and without any follow up visit. The patient was referred to emergency unit with hemorrhagic shock. She immediately underwent laparotomy. The uterine fundal rupture was repaired and evacuation curettage performed. In post operative evaluation, she had a nine millimeter metastatic nodule in base of right Lung. As a patient in low risk stage III, she received weekly intramuscular methotrexate (40mg/m2 for six courses. In follow up visit ?-hCG titer was negative (<10miu/ml at 5th week. Conclusion: In cases of in complete molar pregnancy risk of metastasis is very low. Serial beta-hCG titer is the most accurate method for detection of persistent gestational trophoblastic disease (GTN. In neglected cases like this case preservation of ruptured uterus in GTN is possible.

    Seventy-five Nigerian dentists were interviewed on their approach to the management of impacted third molars. The mean age of the dentists was 34.8 years, with a male/female ratio of 3.4:1. Most of the female dentists were found in the training institutions (p = 0.005). More than half of the dentists (58.7%) practiced in institutions with dental schools (training institutions), majority preferred the buccal approach (92%), and all the dentists (100%) preferred third molar disimpaction under local analgesia. Most dentists (88%) prescribe antibiotics following third molar surgery. Fifty dentists (66.7%) routinely reviewed all patients postoperatively while 12 dentists (16%) were of the opinion that all impacted third molars should be extracted. Only 21 dentists (28%) were aware of any protocol on the management of impacted teeth. More dentists in the training institutions performed third molar surgery less frequently than dentists in other hospitals (p = 0.07) who tend to employ chisels/mallet for bone removal (p = 0.0004). The need for continuing education and the formulation of guidelines in order to assist dentists to make informed decisions is emphasised. This will help conserve scarce resources and enhance the operation of the newly introduced National Health Insurance Scheme. PMID:12061244

    Full Text Available Peri-operative complications may occur during the surgical extraction of impacted mandibular third molars such as the iatrogenic displacement of the whole tooth or a tooth fragment in to the adjacent anatomical structures. The purpose of this case report is to present the diagnosis and treatment planning, as well as the surgical management required for the removal of a 3rd molar displaced in the soft tissues of the floor of the mouth. A 38-year old male patient presented to the Dental School, complaining of pain around the left submandibular area that started three months after the extraction of the impacted mandibular left third molar. At the radiographic examination the tooth was detected in the soft tissues of the floor of the mouth and in close proximity to the lingual plate. It is noteworthy that the patient was under the assumption that the tooth had been extracted successfully. Radiographically the tooth appeared at an 180° turnaround from its original position. Surgical extraction of the displaced third molar took place under local anaesthesia. No post-operative complications were reported. Thorough clinical and radiographic examination, as well as competency at surgical procedures are prerequisites for the appropriate surgical management of impacted third molars.

    One of the most common oral surgical procedures is the extraction of the lower third molar (LTM). Postoperative complications such as paresthesia due to inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) injury are commonly observed in cases of horizontal and vertical impaction. The present report discusses a case of a vertically impacted LTM associated with a dentigerous cyst. An intimate contact between the LTM roots and the mandibular canal was observed on a panoramic radiograph and confirmed with cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) cross-sectional cuts. An orthodontic miniscrew was then used to extrude the LTM prior to its surgical removal in order to avoid the risk of inferior alveolar nerve injury. CBCT imaging follow-up confirmed the success of the LTM orthodontic extrusion.

    Full Text Available In the miscelies studied, molar volume and molar refraction values show linear dependence with the molar fraction of methyl stearate. Viscosity values fit Hildebrand's modified equation, where the "Vo" parameter is a linear function of the molar fraction of methyl stearate. Regarding with this three physico-chemical properties, the mixtures studied behave like ideal mixtures of two organic liquids without ionization.

    En todas las miscelas estudiadas los valores del volumen molar y de la refracción molar presentan variaciones lineales en función de la fracción molar de estearato de metilo. Los valores de viscosidad de las miscelas estudiadas se ajustan a la ecuación de fluidez de Hildebrand modificada, siendo su parámetro "Vo" función lineal de la fracción molar de estearato de metilo. En relación con estas tres características, el comportamiento de las miscelas estudiadas no difiere significativamente del correspondiente a una mezcla "ideal" de dos líquidos orgánicos sin ionizar.

    Full Text Available Two approaches are currently used to correct overerupted/extruded posterior teeth, the “prosthodontic” and the “orthodontic” one. This report presents a novel orthodontic approach for selective molar intrusion. In two females (26 and 20 years, a modified transpalatal arch (TPA, equivalent to a couple with a 30 g net force was used to move the tooth bodily. A 50 g force was applied to the overerupted maxillary second molar by means of a short length elastomeric chain from the helix to the palatal sheath and replaced every three weeks. Sufficient intrusion of the maxillary second molar was obtained within two months. For intrusion of a single tooth, a modified TPA together with a short length elastomeric chain is a non-invasive and cost-effective alternative to traditional edgewise mechanics, temporary anchorage devices, or removable appliances.

    Thorough knowledge of root canal morphology is essential for the endodontic therapy. Variations in the root and root canal morphology, especially in multirooted teeth, are a constant challenge for diagnosis and management. The dentist needs to be familiar with the various root canal configurations and their variations for successful endodontic therapy. There are rare variations in canal number and configuration in maxillary molars, which could affect treatment outcome. Two lingual root structures are occasionally found on human permanent maxillary molars. One of these is the normal lingual root, which is always present, the other is a supernumerary structure which can be located either mesiolingually (radix mesiolingualis) or distolingually (radix distolingualis). The purpose of this paper is to review the literature and to demonstrate a case report which describes the successful non-surgical endodontic management of an unusual maxillary first molar with four separate roots and four canals.

    Full Text Available The interfacial interactions of four methylcelluloses having the same average degree of substitution and distribution of methyl groups, but different molar masses, are studied at ambient temperature and at very low polymer concentrations. Firstly, the surface tension ? at the water/air interface is determined for the progressive addition of methylcellulose up to 100 mg/L; ? starts to decrease over 1 mg/L up to the critical aggregation concentration (CAC at 10 mg/L. The curves describing the influence of polymer concentration on ? are independent of the molar mass at equilibrium. Secondly, the adsorption of methylcellulose on silica particles is estimated from ?-potential measurements. The data are interpreted in terms of an increase of the adsorbed layer thickness at the interface when the molar mass of methylcellulose increases. It is concluded that methylcellulose is adsorbed, forming trains and loops at the interface based on the equilibrium between surface free energy and solvent quality.

Abstract in english Ansa cervicalis is a loop of nerves found in the anterior wall of the carotid sheath in the carotid triangle of neck innervating infrahyoid muscles. Its superior root has fibres from the first cervical nerve that leaves the hypoglossal nerve and joins the inferior root formed by the branches from th [...] e second and third cervical nerves. The two roots join to form ansa cervicalis. The ansa cervicalis nerve formation is relatively complex, as its course and location along the great vessels of the neck vary. In the present case on the left side of an adult male cadaver the inferior root was absent and the contributions from C2 and C3 were joining independently with the superior root of ansa to form ansa cervicalis. However no such variation was found in the ansa cervicalis formation on the right side.

    The objective of the study was to determine the principal dental radiographic features of impacted third molars and to highlight some management implications, 255 periapical radiographs belonging to 197 patients with the clinical records were examined. The age of the subjects, sex, and degree of impaction, inclination, depth, mesiodistal space and associated pathology were documented as well as the number of roots and their relationship to the neurovascular bundle. The mean age was 23.4 years with more female teeth (152, 59.6%) than male (103, 40.4%). Majority were partially erupted (223, 91.4%) with vertical impaction most commonly seen in 80 teeth (31.4%). Over half of the teeth (135, 52.9%) had no obvious relationship with the inferior alveolar neuro-vascular bundle and where this existed, darkening of the root was the most common radiographic indicator (55 teeth, 21.6%). Most of the teeth (54.9%) had no obvious pathologic changes associated. In those with pathologic changes, periodontal bone loss and a wide follicle were most commonly observed (44 teeth or 17.3% in both cases). Older subjects had significantly more periodontal bone loss (p = 0.001). Periapical radiographic examination can reveal vital information for treatment planning of impacted teeth and the monitoring of asymptomatic teeth. PMID:14705372

    Full Text Available South Chilean forest ecosystems represent one of the largest areas of old-growth temperate rainforests remaining in the Southern hemisphere and have a high ecological value, but suffer from deforestation, invasion by exotic species, fragmentation, and increasing atmospheric nitrogen (N deposition. To support sustainable forest management, more knowledge is required on nutrient cycling of these ecosystems. Therefore, a descriptive study of nutrient dynamics was done in four Valdivian rainforests in the lower Andes range of south Chile: old-growth and altered evergreen stands and unmanaged and managed secondary deciduous stands. Time series were measured for (i mass (four year and nutrient content (N, K, Ca, and Mg; one year of litterfall, (ii decomposition and nutrient dynamics (N, C, K, Ca, Mg, and P; one year of leaf litter and Saxegothaea conspicua bark litter, and (iii in situ topsoil net N mineralization (one year. Litterfall in the four stands ranged from 3.5 to 5.8 ton ha-1 yr-1, was temporarily lower in the managed than in the unmanaged deciduous stand and had a different seasonality in the evergreen stands than in the deciduous stands. Leaf litter decomposed faster (on average 32 % mass loss after one year than bark litter (8 % but without significant differences between leaf litter types. Net N in evergreen leaf litter decreased during decomposition but increased in deciduous leaf litter. Net soil N mineralization was fastest in the pristine evergreen stand, intermediate in the deciduous stands and slowest in the altered evergreen forest. Given the absence of replicated stands, the definite impact of forest type or management regime on the internal nutrient cycling cannot be demonstrated. Nevertheless, the results suggest that management can affect nutrient turnover by altering species composition and forest structure, while recent (five years selective logging in secondary deciduous forest did not affect litter decomposition or N mineralization rates in the present study.Los ecosistemas forestales del sur de Chile presentan un gran valor ecológico pues constituyen una de las mayores áreas del hemisferio Sur con existencias de bosques templados lluviosos. Están sometidos a procesos de deforestación, invasión de especies exóticas, fragmentación e incremento de depositación de nitrógeno (N atmosférico.

Además, presentan una estacionalidad en los siempreverdes que es diferente, respecto de los deciduos. La hojarasca se descompone más rápidamente (promedio 32 % pérdida de masa después de un año que la corteza (8 %, pero no se presentaron diferencias significativas en la hojarasca.

    The optimal surgical management of patients with leiomyosarcoma of inferior vena cava remains a controversy. From 1975 and 2009, five patients with leiomyosarcoma of inferior vena cava were treated at the Chinese PLA General Hospital and Beijing Shijitan Hospital. The age ranged 39-61 years and the duration of symptoms ranged from 18 to 36 months. Abdominal and back pain are the most common complaints. A combination of various imaging modalities is essential for treatment planning. R0, R1, R2, and biopsy only were accomplished in 2, 1, 1, and 1 case, respectively. Combined resections included inferior vena cava, right kidney, adrenal gland, psoas, colon, duodenal, gallbladder, liver, and/or aorta, without inferior vena cava reconstruction. No inferior vena cava-related postoperative complication was seen in our series. PMID:25171923

This clinical case describes conventional root canal treatment of an unusual mandibular first molar with six root canals. The prognosis for endodontic treatment in teeth with abnormal morphology is unfavorable if the clinician fails to recognize extra root canals. PMID:25685156

  9. Internal structure of mandible around mandibular molar using computed tomography. Anatomical consideration of molar anchorage in orthodontic treatment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    For establishment of fine occlusion, facial profile and oral function in orthodontic treatment, molar anchorage in teeth movement is important manner in extracted cases. The aims of this study were to investigate the relationship between facial morphology and internal structure of mandibular body in molar region by computer tomography, and to discuss about molar anchorage in orthodontic treatment. The data for this study were obtained from 35 modern male Japanese skulls (mean age; 27 year-old, ranged from 18 year-old to 47 year-old). Measurement variables were FMA, SN to mandibular plane angle, gonial angle, alveolar breadth, cortical bone thickness of buccal and lingual sides, and the distance between dental root and cortical bone. As a result, alveolar breadth and the distance between dental root and cortical bone were narrow in long facial type, on the contrary, these variables were wide in short facial type. The result suggested that these variables were considered important factors as molar anchorage in extracted cases. (author)

  13. Adaptive global synchrony of inferior olive neurons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This paper treats the question of global adaptive synchronization of inferior olive neurons (IONs) based on the immersion and invariance approach. The ION exhibits a variety of orbits as the parameter (termed the bifurcation parameter), which appears in its nonlinear functions, is varied. It is seen that once the bifurcation parameter exceeds a critical value, the stability of the equilibrium point of the ION is lost, and periodic orbits are born. The size and shape of the orbits depend on the value of the bifurcation parameter. It is assumed that bifurcation parameters of the IONs are not known. The orbits of IONs beginning from arbitrary initial conditions are not synchronized. For the synchronization of the IONs, a non-certainty equivalent adaptation law is derived. The control system has a modular structure consisting of an identifier and a control module. Using the Lyapunov approach, it is shown that in the closed-loop system, global synchronization of the neurons with a prescribed relative phase is accomplished, and the estimated bifurcation parameters converge to the true parameters. Unlike the certainty-equivalent adaptive control systems, an interesting feature of the designed control system is that whenever the estimated parameters coincide with the true values, the parameter estimates remain frozen thereafter, and the closed-loop system recovers the performance of the deterministic closed-loop system. Simulation results are presented which show that in the ults are presented which show that in the closed-loop system, the synchrony of neurons with prescribed phases is accomplished despite the uncertainties in the bifurcation parameters.

The patients were divided into three age groups (A: 12-14 years, B: 15-16 years, C: 17-18 years). The reason for extraction, the degree of dental development, and third molar position, angle and impaction were recorded. Finally, the association of these variables to the appearance of postoperative complications was analyzed. Results: Most patients were females (66,9%), and the age group in which most extractions were carried out (62,8%) corresponded to Group C (17-18 years). The main reason for extraction was orthodontist indication (40,5%), closely followed by prophylaxis (39,5%). The existence of clinical manifestations was an indication for extraction in 20% of cases. The postoperative complications rate after the extraction of the global 390 molars was 15,6%. In Groups A, B and C the complication risks were 17,4%, 19% and 13,7%, respectively. All complications were reversible and of short duration. One case each of inferior alveolar nerve paresthesia and lingual nerve paresthesia was recorded, which subsided after one and two months, respectively. Conclusions: There were no significant differences in complications between the three age groups. An increased tendency towards complications was observed in females, and the percentage of postoperative problems increased.

    A new method was proposed to determine the nitrogen content of nitrocelluloses (NCs). It is based on the finding of a linear relationship between the nitrogen content and the molar ratio of nitrite-to-nitrate ions released after alkaline hydrolysis. Capillary electrophoresis was used to monitor the concentration of nitrite and nitrate ions. The influences of hydrolysis time and molar mass of NC on the molar ratio of nitrite-to-nitrate ions were investigated, and new insights into the understanding of the alkaline denitration mechanism of NCs, underlying this analytical strategy is provided. The method was then tested successfully with various explosive and non-explosive NC-containing samples such as various daily products and smokeless gunpowders. Inherently to its principle exploiting a concentration ratio, this method shows very good repeatability in the determination of nitrogen content in real samples with relative standard deviation (n = 3) inferior to 1.5%, and also provides very significant advantages with respect to sample extraction, analysis time (1h for alkaline hydrolysis, 3 min for electrophoretic separation), which was about 5 times shorter than for the classical Devarda's method, currently used in industry, and safety conditions (no need for preliminary drying NC samples, mild hydrolysis conditions with 1M sodium hydroxide for 1h at 60 °C).

The aim of present study is to compare of two techniques (block and infiltration for class I restorative treatment in primary second molars.Methods and Materials: Fourty children between 5-8 years old having bilateral calss I caries lesions on mandibular primary second molars were selected. Bite wing radiography was used to exclude proximal caries before operation. Operation was made by first using infiltration technique on one side and using block technique on the other side 72 hours later. Standard block injection technique was performed. Infiltration technique consisted of injecting half of a carpule in the bottom of vestibule between roots of the tooth and injection of 2 drops of anesthetic in mesial and distal papillae after 5 minutes. Pain was assessed using SEM (Sound, Eyes, Motor scale by an observer who did not know which technique was used. SEM scale is a reliable and easy to administer for assessment of pain.Results: Pain during operation for both techniques, scored by SEM, was compared and there was no significant difference between block and infiltration techniques.Conclusion: Results show, according to less density of bone in buccal plate and less need to a profound anesthesia for minor restorative treatment, infiltration rechnique can be used instead of block injection in mandibular primary molars in 5-8 years children.

    Full Text Available A distalização dos molares superiores constitui um desafio na correção da má oclusão de Classe II em tratamentos sem extrações dentárias e sem avanço mandibular. Há uma procura por dispositivos que substituam a tração extrabucal (AEB e que não exijam demasiada colaboração do paciente, o que estimula os ortodontistas a testarem métodos alternativos aos relatados na literatura. Dentre estes, destacam-se os aparelhos Pêndulo e Pendex de Hilgers. OBJETIVO: a realização desta pesquisa teve o intuito de avaliar, mediante a cefalometria, os efeitos do aparelho Pendex aplicado no final da dentadura mista e na dentadura permanente. METODOLOGIA: a amostra constou de 14 pacientes com má oclusão de Classe II bilateral, com média de idade de 11 anos e 3 meses. Foram tomadas duas telerradiografias em norma lateral, uma correspondente ao início do tratamento e outra aproximadamente 5 meses após sua finalização, quando a relação dos molares encontrava-se sobrecorrigida. RESULTADOS: após a determinação e mensuração das grandezas cefalométricas lineares e angulares e análise estatística (Teste t de Student, pode-se concluir que os efeitos do aparelho Pendex foram predominantemente ortodônticos: distalização da coroa dos primeiros molares permanentes numa velocidade média de 0,8 mm/mês e vestibularização dos incisivos superiores com aumento do trespasse horizontal. CONCLUSÃO: assim sendo, quando há indicação para distalização dos molares, cumpre-se fazer uma análise dos fatores envolvidos, a fim de eleger, com prudência, a solução terapêutica mais adequada às exigências individuais e profissionais.The upper molar distalization is a challenge in the Class II malocclusion correction in treatments without dental extraction and without mandibular advance. There is a search for appliances that replace the extrabuccal traction (AEB and do not require patient cooperation, that stimulate the orthodontists to test the alternative methods related in the literature. Among these, we see the Hilgers' Pendulum and Pend-X appliances. AIM: The realization of this research has the aim to evaluate, through the cephalometry, the effects of the Pend-X appliance applied in the end of the mixed dentition and in the permanent too. METHODS: The sample consisted of 14 patients with bilateral Class II malocclusion and with mean age of 11 years and 3 months old. Two teleradiographies were taken in the lateral norm, one was correspondent to the beginning of the treatment and the other one after approximately 5 months, when the molars relation were overcorrected. RESULTS: After the determination and measurement of angular and linear cephalometry quantities and the statistical analysis (Student's t tests could one to conclude that the effects of the Pend-X appliance were predominantly dental: first molars crown distalization in a mean speed of 0.8mm/month and superior incisive vestibularization with overjet increase. CONCLUSION: So, when there is indication to molars distalization, we have to analyse the involved factors to elect, with prudence, the most adequated therapeutic solution with the individual and professional exigencies.

    This article describes efficient techniques for distalization of maxillary and mandibular molars with the assistance of Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs). There are numerous occasions where the distalization of molars is required in lieu of the odontectomy of bicuspids. In the past, extra-oral force has been used, (i.e. Cervical or Combination Head Gear, or intra-oral force, i.e. Posterior Sagittal Appliance, Modified Greenfield Appliance, Williams DMJ 20001, CD Distalizer, Magill Sagittal, Pendulum Appliance, etc.). All the intra-oral appliances have a common denominator the orthodontic clinician has to deal with, the undesirable expression of the Third Law of Newton. The utilization of TADs allows us to circumvent this shortcoming, establishing an absolute anchorage, and thus completely negate the expression of the Third Law of Newton. PMID:25881377

    Full Text Available A distalização dos molares superiores constitui um desafio na correção da má oclusão de Classe II em tratamentos sem extrações dentárias e sem avanço mandibular. Há uma procura por dispositivos que substituam a tração extrabucal (AEB) e que não exijam demasiada colaboração do paciente, o que estimul [...] a os ortodontistas a testarem métodos alternativos aos relatados na literatura. Dentre estes, destacam-se os aparelhos Pêndulo e Pendex de Hilgers. OBJETIVO: a realização desta pesquisa teve o intuito de avaliar, mediante a cefalometria, os efeitos do aparelho Pendex aplicado no final da dentadura mista e na dentadura permanente. METODOLOGIA: a amostra constou de 14 pacientes com má oclusão de Classe II bilateral, com média de idade de 11 anos e 3 meses. Foram tomadas duas telerradiografias em norma lateral, uma correspondente ao início do tratamento e outra aproximadamente 5 meses após sua finalização, quando a relação dos molares encontrava-se sobrecorrigida. RESULTADOS: após a determinação e mensuração das grandezas cefalométricas lineares e angulares e análise estatística (Teste t de Student), pode-se concluir que os efeitos do aparelho Pendex foram predominantemente ortodônticos: distalização da coroa dos primeiros molares permanentes numa velocidade média de 0,8 mm/mês e vestibularização dos incisivos superiores com aumento do trespasse horizontal. CONCLUSÃO: assim sendo, quando há indicação para distalização dos molares, cumpre-se fazer uma análise dos fatores envolvidos, a fim de eleger, com prudência, a solução terapêutica mais adequada às exigências individuais e profissionais. Abstract in english The upper molar distalization is a challenge in the Class II malocclusion correction in treatments without dental extraction and without mandibular advance. There is a search for appliances that replace the extrabuccal traction (AEB) and do not require patient cooperation, that stimulate the orthodo [...] ntists to test the alternative methods related in the literature. Among these, we see the Hilgers' Pendulum and Pend-X appliances. AIM: The realization of this research has the aim to evaluate, through the cephalometry, the effects of the Pend-X appliance applied in the end of the mixed dentition and in the permanent too. METHODS: The sample consisted of 14 patients with bilateral Class II malocclusion and with mean age of 11 years and 3 months old. Two teleradiographies were taken in the lateral norm, one was correspondent to the beginning of the treatment and the other one after approximately 5 months, when the molars relation were overcorrected. RESULTS: After the determination and measurement of angular and linear cephalometry quantities and the statistical analysis (Student's t tests) could one to conclude that the effects of the Pend-X appliance were predominantly dental: first molars crown distalization in a mean speed of 0.8mm/month and superior incisive vestibularization with overjet increase. CONCLUSION: So, when there is indication to molars distalization, we have to analyse the involved factors to elect, with prudence, the most adequated therapeutic solution with the individual and professional exigencies.

    Cases of congenitally missing and delayed eruption of the maxillary first molar are rare. However, in recent years, we have experienced cases of suspected delayed eruption of or congenitally missing first molars. The purpose of this study was to analyze the formation of delayed erupted maxillary first molars (M1) (>2 standard deviations), which play important roles in occlusion, and normal eruption of the maxillary first molars (U6). The frequency of M1 among patients born between 1974 and 1994 in one institution with a clear total patient number and personal oral histories was 1.55 % [80 % bilateral eruption in 8 of 806 male patients (0.99 %) and 23 of 1195 female patients (1.92 %)]. To evaluate the formation and eruption of M1 according to Moorrees's tooth formation stages, panoramic X-ray films were obtained every year for 73 patients with M1 from 3 institutions (20 male and 53 female patients, total 131 M1s) without systematic histories or genetic disorders. The development/growth curve of M1 was fitted to both the logistic curve and U6 curve. The M1 development/growth curve was started behind with U6 curve; however, the straight part of the M1 curve exhibited steep inclination compared with the straight part of the U6 curve. The curve of the eruption pathway of M1 also exhibited a sigmoid S shape. These results indicate that the development and migration speed of M1 are faster than that of U6, excluding the delayed start point. These results may help orthodontists in treatment planning for patients with M1. PMID:25011634

    To be acquainted with dental anatomical specificity is of great importance for dental endodontic treatment algorithm. The subject of present publication is 2 clinical cases of upper second molars, detailed characterization of, which is considered very important for enrichment of anatomical knowledge about dental anatomical variations. In one case, the reason for admission to the clinic of a 38-year-old woman was complains as of esthetic character as well as functional misbalance (disturbance of chewing function due to the damage of orthopedic construction). The patient indicated to the existence of coronary defects of large size aesthetic discomforts, damage and discolouration of old orthopedic construction (denture) in maxillary right molar area. According to the data obtained after clinical and visiographical examinations, chronic periodontitis of 17 teeth was identified as a result of incomplete endodontic treatment. According to the data obtained after clinical and visiographical examinations, the diagnosis of chronic periodontitis of 17 teeth was identified, tooth 17 with 2 roots and 2 canals. In the second clinical case, the reason for admission to the clinic of a 39-year-old woman was severe pain in the upper right molar area. The patient indicated to the caries on the tooth 17. After completion of proper survey clinical and visiographical examinations, acute pulpitis (K04.00) - with three roots and 4 canals was diagnosed. In both cases after the proper examinations and agreement with the patients a treatment plan envisaging: 17 teeth endodontic treatment, filling of caries defects and their preparation on one hand for orthopedic construction (denture) and on the other hand for restoration of anatomical integrity by light-cured composite, was scheduled. The present study is designed to prevent complications of endodontic treatment of the second molar, to optimize diagnosis and treatment algorithm, once again proving reliable information indicating to the individuality of treatment tactics.

    The successional dental lamina (SDL) plays an essential role in the development of replacement teeth in diphyodont and polyphyodont animals. A morphologically similar structure, the rudimental successional dental lamina (RSDL), has been described in monophyodont (only one tooth generation) lizards on the lingual side of the developing functional tooth. This rudimentary lamina regresses, which has been proposed to play a role in preventing the formation of future generations of teeth. A similar rudimentary lingual structure has been reported associated with the first molar in the monophyodont mouse, and we show that this structure is common to all murine molars. Intriguingly, a lingual lamina is also observed on the non-replacing molars of other diphyodont mammals (pig and hedgehog), initially appearing very similar to the successional dental lamina on the replacing teeth. We have analyzed the morphological as well as ultrastructural changes that occur during the development and loss of this molar lamina in the mouse, from its initiation at late embryonic stages to its disappearance at postnatal stages. We show that loss appears to be driven by a reduction in cell proliferation, down-regulation of the progenitor marker Sox2, with only a small number of cells undergoing programmed cell death. The lingual lamina was associated with the dental stalk, a short epithelial connection between the tooth germ and the oral epithelium. The dental stalk remained in contact with the oral epithelium throughout tooth development up to eruption when connective tissue and numerous capillaries progressively invaded the dental stalk. The buccal side of the dental stalk underwent keratinisation and became part of the gingival epithelium, while most of the lingual cells underwent programmed cell death and the tissue directly above the erupting tooth was shed into the oral cavity.

    A new algorithm is presented for interpreting the hydration dependence of x-ray diffraction measurements. The method assumes that the volume of the hydrocarbon phase of the lipid bilayer is not affected by hydration and that the volume expansion between bilayers at maximum hydration is caused by incorporation of water molecules whose partial molar volume is that of pure bulk water. These simple assumptions lead to a determination of the area expansion (and hence change in hydrocarbon-phase th...

In control group pain thresholds of infraorbital nerve and inferior alveolar nerve did not differ significantly (p > 0.05. Consequently, lesion degree of inferior alveolar nerve and its functional recovery dynamics were estimated objectively according to pain threshold and lesion index of neural function. Stump dislocation extent has influence on neural lesion: the more expressed dislocation, the higher likelihood of severe lesion of inferior alveolar nerve. Three degrees of neural lesion were identified in the case of mandibular angle fracture. When minor lesion of inferior alveolar nerve took place (17.4%, sensation recovered in 21 days after stump reposition and fixation; moderate lesion of nerve (55.8% had sensory recovery after 28 days, and in the case of severe lesion of nerve (26.6% neural function did not recover even after 90 days.

    Extraction of third molars is the most common surgical procedure performed in oral surgery on a daily basis and, despite surgical skills and expertise, complications may occur. Complications observed during or after third molar removal may include pain, swelling, bleeding, infection, sinus perforation and nerve damage. Fortunately, with a proper management and a good surgical technique, the incidence of such events is low. Subcutaneous emphysema associated with dental extraction occurs when the air from the high-speed dental handpiece is forced into the soft tissue through the reflected flap and invades the adjacent tissues, leading to swelling, crepitus on palpation and occasionally spreading through the tissue spaces of the fascial planes. Although rare, iatrogenic subcutaneous emphysema can have serious and potentially life-threatening consequences. Care should be taken when using air-driven handpieces. The access of air into the facial tissues is not limited to tooth extractions, but may also occur through other portals of entrance, such as endodontically treated teeth, periodontium and lacerations of intraoral soft tissues. When subcutaneous emphysema occurs, it must be quickly diagnosed and properly managed to reduce the risk of further complications. This report presents a case of subcutaneous emphysema occurred during extraction of a mandibular third molar extraction with the use of an air turbine handpiece. Case management is described and issues relative to the diagnosis and prevention of this surgical complication are discussed. PMID:21519655

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Excess molar volumes, VE, excess molar enthalpies, HE and speeds of sound, u data of tetrahydropyran (i) + cyclohexane or n-hexane or n-heptane (j) binary mixtures have been measured using dilatometer, calorimeter and interferometer over whole mole fraction range at 308.15 K. Speeds of sound data have been utilized to predict isentropic compressibilities changes of mixing, ?SE. The analysis of VE in terms of Graph theory reveals that (i + j) mixtures are characterized by dipole-induced dipole interactions between THP and cyclo or n-alkanes to form 1:1 molecular complex. HE and ?SE data of the investigated mixtures have also been analyzed in terms of Graph theory. VE, HE and ?SE data predicted by Graph theory compare well with their corresponding experimental values.

    Objetives: Assess levels of trait anxiety, state anxiety and dental anxiety before extraction of lower third molars and check the correlation and reliability of the scales used for the measurement of preoperative anxiety. Study Design: A prospective study of patients treated with extraction of a lower third molar between September 2010 to December 2010 was carried out. A total of 125 patients were included in the study. All of them were patients of the Oral Surgery and Implantology Department (Valencia University Medical and Dental School, Valencia, Spain). Before surgery, patients had to complete a preoperative protocol with 4 scales: the STAI-T (State-Trait Anxiety Inventory-Trait) for measuring trait anxiety, the STAI-S (State-Trait Anxiety Inventory-State) for measuring state anxiety, and DAS (Dental anxiety Scale of N. Corah) and APAIS (Amsterdam Preoperative anxiety and Information Scale) for measuring dental anxiety. Results: Patients undergoing extractions of an impacted lower third molar showed low levels of trait anxiety and moderate levels of state anxiety and dental anxiety. Higher levels of trait anxiety were obtained for older patients. Women had higher mean levels of dental anxiety and state anxiety that men with a statistically significant difference in STAI-S scales, DAS, and APAIS. Patients with higher trait anxiety and state anxiety showed higher levels of dental anxiety. A significant correlation (p ? 0.01) (p = 0.00) was found between the four scales used to measure anxiety. The scale showed higher correlation was STAI-S scale. The 4 scales showed high reliability (? of C.> 0.80). Conclusions: Patients with highest levels of trait anxiety and state anxiety, had more dental anxiety. The STAI-T, STAI-S, DAS and APAIS scales provided useful information about anxiety before the extraction of lower impacted third molars. The STAI-S is the scale with highest correlation and reliability. Key words:Extraction of impacted lower third molars, preoperative anxiety, dental anxiety, trait anxiety, state anxiety.

In this manuscript we report a rare case of absence of inferior gluteal artery. In the same specimen the superior gluteal artery was taking origin from the anterior division of internal iliac artery. The structures normally supplied by the inferior gluteal artery were supplied by a branch coming from the superi...

    OBJECTIVES: To perform an audit of a three-step protocol for radiographic examination of mandibular third molars before surgery. METHODS: 1769 teeth underwent surgery. A standardized three-step radiographic protocol was followed: (1) panoramic imaging (PAN), (2) stereoscanography (SCAN) and (3) CBCT. If there was overprojection between the tooth and the canal in PAN, SCAN was performed. If the tooth was determined to be in close contact with the canal in SCAN, CBCT was performed. Close contact between the tooth and the canal was assessed in all images, and patient-reported sensory disturbances from the alveolar inferior nerve were recorded after surgery. The relation between the final radiographic examination and sensory disturbances was determined. Logistic regression analysis tested whether signs for a close contact in PAN/SCAN could predict no bony separation between the tooth and canal in CBCT. RESULTS: 46% of teeth underwent PAN, 31% underwent SCAN and 23% underwent CBCT as the final examination. 21% underwent all three radiographic examinations. 53/76% of teeth with close relation to the canal in PAN/SCAN showed no bony separation in CBCT; if there was close relation in PAN/SCAN, there was 1.6/4.3 times higher probability that no bony separation existed in CBCT. 16 cases of sensory disturbances were recorded: 4 operations were based on PAN, 8 on SCAN and 4 on CBCT. CONCLUSIONS: The radiographic protocol was in general followed. SCAN was superior to PAN in predicting no bony separation between the tooth and the canal in CBCT, and there was no relation between sensory disturbances and radiographic method.

    Estimation of chronological age of an individual is one of the main challenges in forensic science. Legally to be able to treat a person as a minor or an adult, it is necessary to determine whether their age of majority (if they are older or younger than 18, in most countries). Methods for estimating age are especially important when an individual in question lacks personal documents or other means of identification. As the dental age differs in various populations, the aim of this study was to evaluate applicability of third molar method for assessing age of majority in Croatia. Cameriere's third molar maturity index (I3M) value of 0.08, measured by the open apices of the teeth, was verified in sample of 1336 panoramic images aged between 14 and 23 years. Chronological age gradually decreased as I3M increased in both genders. Males showed statistically significant advanced maturation when I3M was between 0.0 and 0.3 value. The results indicate that the sensitivity of the test for 0.08 value was 84.3% (95%CI 80.6%, 87.5%) for females and 91.2% (95%CI 88.7%, 93.1) for males. Specificity was 95.4% (95%CI 92.5%, 97.5%) and 91.9% (95%CI 88.8%, 94.3%). The proportions of accurately classified males were 88.8% and that of females 91.5%. The estimated post-test probabilities, of individuals, in other word the probability that a Croatian individual with an I3M<0.08 is 18 years or older is 94.5% for females, and 96.5% for males. With high accuracy, the third molar maturity index should be used as a determinant of the age of majority in Croatia. PMID:26013667

    Full Text Available Clinical thyrotoxicosis is one of the rare complications of molar pregnancy. The cause of the symptoms associated with hyperthyroidism in mol hydatiform is the thyrotrophic effects of high levels of ?-hCG. The hCG molecule consists of ? and ? subunits; the ? subunit is identical to TSH and the ? subunit has a similar structure to TSH. In this case report it was aimed to discuss the anesthetic management of a dilatation and curettage case in a patient with mol hydatiform and thyroid crisis.

    The multiple impacted teeth at jaws are a rare condition that frequently associated with syndromes, metabolic disorders or trauma. A 48-year old male patient was referred to our clinic, with complaint of pain on right retromolar region while chewing. The patient had facial asymmetry and restricted mouth opening. Clinical and radiographic examination revealed the impaction of mandibular first, second and third molar and an abnormal condyle and coronoid process. All of the impacted teeth were extracted. Because the patient refused other treatment procedures no surgical intervention was performed for the asymmetry and restricted mouth opening. Six months clinic and radiographic follow up were satisfactory.

    A 4-year-old boy reported food lodgement and pain in the lower left back tooth region. On examination, a deeply carious tooth with food lodgement was seen. On oral examination, numbers of teeth were found to be carious and required restorations and endodontic treatments according to radiographic evaluation. Radiograph of mandibular left first deciduous molar revealed an unusual morphology of root. It was single-rooted and presented with Vertucci's class I canal. The tooth was treated by pulpectomy followed by a stainless steel crown. All other carious teeth were treated as planned. PMID:23893279

    This study was performed to determine the relationship between the stage of tooth eruption (both vertical and mesio-angular) and chronological age. Indirect digital panoramic radiographs were used to measure the distances from the dentinoenamel junction (DEJ) of the second molars to the occlusal plane of the second molar teeth and of the adjacent third molars in 264 Thai males and 437 Thai females using ImageJ software. The ratio of those distances was calculated by patient age, and the correlation coefficient of the ratio of the third molar length to the second molar length was calculated. The correlation between the height of the vertically erupted upper third molar teeth and age was at the intermediate level. The age range of ?15 to <16 years was noted to be the range in which the correlation between the chronological age determined from the eruptional height and actual chronological age was statistically significant. The mean age of the female subjects, in which the position of the right upper third molar teeth was at or above the DEJ of the adjacent second molar but below one half of its coronal height was 19.9±2.6 years. That for the left side was 20.2±2.7 years. The mean ages of the male subjects were 20.1±3.3 years and 19.8±2.7 years for the right and left sides, respectively. It might be possible to predict chronological age from the eruption height of the wisdom teeth.

    Full Text Available Background: The segmental arteries of the kidney supply the organ in such a way that, each renal pole receives its own artery while, the anterior portion between the poles is supplied by an upper and lower segmental vessel. These two arteries also include in their territory the lateral edge of the kidney and adjacent to the strip of parenchyma on the dorsal or posterior aspect of the organ. The knowledge of inferior segmental branch of renal artery is very important for surgeries in its distribution area in kidney. Materials and Methods: 100 kidneys (Fifty pairs intact with abdominal aorta were collected from department of Forensic medicine, JSS Medical College and Mysore Medical College. For study of segmental variation Corrosion cast technique method was used. The variations of inferior segmental branch of renal artery were observed and recorded. Results: In present study type I inferior segmental branch of renal artery were found in - 59% cases, type II in - 6% cases, type III in - 28% cases, type IV in - 2% cases. Conclusion: The inferior segmental artery from the anterior division of the renal artery is the commonest event –arising in 59%. This is Type I, the normal type. It arises from the renal artery (28% or from the posterior division (6% or from the aorta (2%. The knowledge of inferior segmental branch of renal artery helpful in kidney transplantation and renal surgery because these type of surgeries success mainly depends on arterial ligations.

    Social rank theory suggests that mood variation is linked to the security a person feels in his/her social domain and the extent to which they are sensitive to involuntary subordination (e.g. feeling defeated and feeling inferior). Previous studies looking at rank-related and competitive behaviour have often focused on striving for dominance, whereas social rank theory has focused on striving to avoid inferiority. This study set out to develop a measure of 'Striving to Avoid Inferiority' (SAIS) and assess its relationship to other rank and mood-related variables. We hypothesized two factors: one we called insecure striving, relating to fear of rejection/criticism for 'not keeping up', and the second we called secure non-striving, relating to feeling socially acceptable and valued regardless of whether one succeeds or not. This scale was given to 207 undergraduates. The SAIS had good psychometric properties, with the two factors of insecure striving and secure non-striving strongly supported by exploratory factor analysis. Both factors were significantly (though contrastingly) related to various fears of rejection, need for validation, hypercompetitive attitudes, feeling inferior to others, submissive behaviour and indicators of stress, anxiety and depression. Striving to avoid inferiority was a significant predictor of psychopathologies, especially where individuals perceived themselves to have low social rank. PMID:17877856

    The Er:YAG laser technology has been thoroughly studied, since its invention, and has been increasingly recommended in Dentistry. However, its use in deciduous teeth has not been deserving the equivalent attention to its counterpart in permanent teeth, despite of the deciduous teething occur in a phase of life in which it has a far more importance than its substitutes. For that reason, this study aims to identify the suitable parameters to the clinic procedures in deciduous teeth, using the already established protocols in permanent teeth. The study was lead in a way to resemble the most the conditions of the clinical use of the laser. Five groups were analyzed using different energy densities and repetition rates. Each group was composed of 10 first superior right deciduous molars randomly selected. The energy densities and repetition rates used for each group were: 60 mJ 15 Hz, 250 mJ 2 Hz, 250 mJ 15 Hz, 400 mJ 6 Hz and 500 mJ 2 Hz. The results obtained allowed us to conclude that the use of the Er:YAG laser in Odontopediatrics is effective, safe and secure and the main reason for its recommendation is the low transfer of heat to the adjacent tissues of the applied surfaces.

  17. Anterior ST segment depression in acute inferior myocardial infarction as a marker of greater inferior, apical, and posterolateral damage

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The clinical significance of anterior precordial ST segment depression during acute inferior myocardial infarction was evaluated in 67 consecutive patients early after onset of symptoms with gated blood pool scans, thallium-201 perfusion images, and 12-lead ECGs. Patients with anterior ST depression (n = 33) had depressed mean values for left ventricular ejection fraction (54 +/- 2% [mean +/- S.E.M.] vs 59 +/- 2%; p = 0.02), cardiac index (3.1 +/- 0.2 vs 3.6 +/- 0.2 L/m2; p = 0.03), and ratio of systolic blood pressure to end-systolic volume (2.0 +/- 0.1 vs 2.5 +/- 0.3 mm Hg/ml; p = 0.04) compared to patients with no anterior ST depression (n = 34). Patients with anterior ST depression had (1) lower mean wall motion values for the inferior, apical, and inferior posterolateral segments (p less than 0.05) and (2) greater reductions in thallium-201 uptake in the inferior and posterolateral regions (p less than 0.05). However, anterior and septal (1) wall motion and (2) thallium-201 uptake were similar in patients with and without ST depression. Thus, anterior precordial ST segment depression in patients with acute inferior wall myocardial infarction represents more than a reciprocal electrical phenomenon. It identifies patients with more severe wall motion impairment and greater hypoperfusion of the inferior and adjacent segments. The poorer global left ventricular function in these patients is a result of more extensive inferior infarction and not of remote septal or anterior injury

    An adult male Eastern Grey kangaroo from a wildlife reserve near Melbourne was submitted for necropsy examination and was discovered to have abnormal dentition. There was no evidence that any premolars or molars had ever been present on the right mandible, whilst the incisors were normal. The age of the kangaroo was estimated to be 1 year 9 months using the right maxillary molars and 2 years 4 months old using the contralateral side, presumably due to the asymmetry of the dental arcades. 'Lumpy jaw', a common periodontal disease of kangaroos, from which Bacteroides sp was cultured, was present on the base of the vertical ramus of the left mandible. Complete unilateral absence of premolar and molar teeth in the mandible of a kangaroo has not been described. This condition affected molar progression in both sets of maxillary molars.

Abstract in english Introduction. Gestational trophoblastic disease includes a group of pathologies characterized by abnormal trophoblast growth and invasion. The molecular bases of the disease are largely unknown, due in part to the lack of appropriate biological models. The insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system pla [...] ys a fundamental role in the growth and development of many tissues and is involved in the progression of several diseases. Objectives. Primary cell cultures derived from first trimester placenta were characterized from patients with complete hydatidiform mole and spontaneous non molar abortion by immunocytochemical and molecular methods. Materials and Methods. The immunocytochemical method used specific markers for trophoblastic cells, whereas RT-PCR was used to identify insulin-like growth factor gene expression. Results. Histochemical staining with hematoxilin-eosin revealed that the cultures contained heterogeneous cell types, including trophoblast and endometrial decidual cells. The ratio of trophoblast cells in the cultures varied between 16% and 37%, as detected by cytokeratine-7 as the specific trophoblast marker. Gene expression analysis corroborated the presence of trophoblasts by detecting insulin-like growth factor II mRNA, whereas GH-V transcripts were correlated with the presence of syncitiotrophoblasts. Insulin-like growth factor I and insulin-like growth factor binding protein 1 mRNAs were related to mesenchyimal and decidual cells, respectively. Higher insulin-like growth factor II expression levels were found in molar tissues in comparison with non-molar abortions. Conclusion. By combining three methodologies-morphology, immunocytochemistry and gene expression, characterization and follow-up of placenta cultures from abnormal tissues is found to facilitate diagnosis.

    Full Text Available Anatomic variations are common in human dentition. A clear understanding of these variations is very important for success of endodontic treatment. A dentist should be aware of these anatomic variations as this can affect the treatment outcome. A case of endodontic therapy is presented in which inability to locate an anatomically rare supplemental canal of a three rooted mandibular first molar resulted in treatment failure. A 21-year-old female reported with pain and swelling in relation to lower right first molar. An intra oral periapical radiograph revealed 3 roots; the first canal of the mesial root and a canal of one of the distal roots were found to be treated endodontically, which were infraobturated but the canal of the 2nd distal root had not been treated. The radiograph revealed periapical radiolucency and widening of periodontal space. Prior to starting the endodontic treatment the clinician must be aware of the anatomic variations in tooth pulp morphology and also the importance of preoperative radiographs cannot be underscored.

El crecimiento vertical del diente afectado se encuentra inhibido, y se aprecia por debajo del nivel de oclusión con respecto a los dientes vecinos. El rango de prevalencia de l [...] as infraoclusiones es muy amplio. Debido a la importancia clínica que puede tener esta condición se considera conveniente ahondar en la investigación de la frecuencia con que se observa esta anomalía. Material y método. El estudio se realizó utilizando como referencia las radiografías de aleta de mordida de ambos lados y para estimar los milímetros de infraoclusión se tomo como referencia el primer molar permanente. Resultados. De los 849 expedientes revisados, el 10,48% presentaban infraoclusiones. No hubo diferencias significativas entre sexos. El rango en el cual se presentan mayor número de infraoclusiones es entre los 6 y 8 años. Los primeros molares temporales fueron los dientes más afectados, y las infraoclusiones se consideraron leves en el 69,7% de los casos. Conclusiones. Se puede destacar que las infraoclusiones son una patología común que no tiene predilección por un sexo concreto y se observa con mayor frecuencia en pacientes en dentición mixta, entre la población infantil estudiada. Abstract in english Introduction. Infraocclusion is a condition which has its origin in tooth ankylosis or dentoalveolar ankylosis. The vertical growth of the affected tooth is inhibited and it fails to reach the occlusal level of the surrounding teeth. The range of prevalence of infraocclusion is very wide. Given the [...] clinical importance of this condition it seems advisable to study the frequency with which this anomaly is observed. Materials and method. The study was carried out using bilateral bitewing x-rays as reference for measuring the infraocclusion in millimetres with regard to the first permanent molar. Results. Infraocclusion was present in 10.48% of the 849 cases studied. There were no significant differences between genders. The age period in which infraocclusion was most frequent ranged between 6 and 8 years. The first temporary molars are the most frequently affected teeth and slight infraocclusion was present in 69.7% of the cases. Conclusions. Infraocclusion is a common pathology, which is equally prevalent in both genders and is most frequently seen in patients with mixed dentition in the infant population studied.

    This study investigated the developmental stages of third molars in relation to chronological age and compared third molar development according to location and gender. A retrospective analysis of panoramic radiographs of 2490 patients aged between 6 and 24 years was conducted, and the developmental stages of the third molars were evaluated using the modified Demirjian's classification. The mean age, standard deviation, minimal and maximal age, and percentile distributions were recorded for each stage of development. A Mann-Whitney U test was performed to test the developmental differences in the third molars between the maxillary and mandibular arches and between genders. A linear regression analysis was used for assessing the correlation between the third molar development and chronological age. The developmental stages of the third molars were more advanced in the maxillary arch than the mandibular arch. Males reached the developmental stages earlier than females. The average age of the initial mineralization of the third molars was 8.57 years, and the average age at apex closure was 21.96 years. The mean age of crown completion was 14.52 and 15.04 years for the maxillary and the mandibular third molars, respectively. The developmental stages of the third molars clearly showed a strong correlation with age. The third molars developed earlier in the upper arch than the lower arch; further, they developed earlier in males than in females.

    Posttraumatic inferior vena cava thrombosis (IVCT) is very rare, with only a few cases reported in the literature. While thromboembolism as a result of trauma is common in adult patients, it is very rare in young children and seldom involves the inferior vena cava. We report the youngest patient to date with IVCT and the only child reported whose findings are the result of child physical abuse. The diagnosis can be challenging both clinically and radiographically. Additionally, the risks of morbidity and even mortality associated with an IVCT if untreated are significant. PMID:24578163

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: esse estudo objetivou avaliar a estabilidade da relação molar na má oclusão de Classe II tratada ortodonticamente sem extrações, visando quantificar a recidiva e correlacioná-la a alguns fatores. MÉTODOS: a amostra constituiu-se de 39 indivíduos (16 mulheres e 23 homens) com má oclusão de [...] Classe II tratada sem extrações, com aparelhos fixos. A idade inicial média foi de 12,94 anos; na fase final, foi de 15,14 anos; na pós-contenção, 21,18 anos. A média do tempo de tratamento foi de 2,19 anos e do tempo de avaliação pós-tratamento, de 6,12 anos. Para verificar a influência da severidade da relação molar de Classe II inicial na estabilidade da relação molar, a amostra foi dividida em dois grupos, um apresentando relação molar de ½ Classe II ou ¾ de Classe II, e outro apresentando relação molar de Classe II completa. Nos modelos de estudo das três fases estudadas, foram medidas a relação molar, as relações de primeiros e segundos pré-molares e de caninos. Os dados foram analisados pelos testes ANOVA dependente, de Tukey, correlação de Pearson e teste t independente entre dois grupos, divididos pela severidade da relação molar inicial. RESULTADOS: houve recidiva não significativa de 0,12mm na relação molar. A severidade inicial da relação molar de Classe II não se correlacionou com a recidiva no período pós-contenção. Quando a amostra dividiu-se em dois grupos, nenhuma diferença foi encontrada na recidiva da relação molar. CONCLUSÃO: a correção da relação molar de Classe II é estável e a severidade inicial não exerce influência sobre a recidiva da relação molar.

Mean treatment time was 2.19 years and mean time of post-treatment evaluation was 6.12 years. To verify the influence of the severity of initial Class II molar relationship in stability of molar relationship, the sample was divided into two groups, one presenting a ½-cusp or ¾-cusp Class II molar relationship, and the other with full-cusp Class II molar relationship. In dental casts from initial, final and postretention stages, molar, first and second premolars and canine relationships were measured. Data obtained were analyzed by dependent ANOVA, Tukey and Pearson's correlation tests, as well as independent t test between the two groups divided by severity of initial molar relationship. RESULTS: There was a non-statistically significant 0.12 mm relapse of molar relationship. The initial severity of Class II molar relationship was not correlated to relapse in the post-retention period. When compared, the two groups showed no difference in relapse of molar relationship. CONCLUSION: It was concluded that correction of Class II molar relationship is stable and initial severity does not influence relapse of molar relationship.

    Full Text Available Preschool children (n=721 aged between 4 and 5 years were examined and 60 were selected. Two pairs of dental casts were obtained for each child. The first pair was from primary dentition before eruption of permanent first molars; the second pair had the permanent first molars in occlusion. The sample was divided into 3 groups, according to the terminal plane. The findings indicate that 55% of the group with flush terminal plane developed into Class I, 40% into Class II, and 5% into Class III molar relationship in the permanent dentition. The group with mesial step, 70% progressed to Class I, 25% to Class II, and 5% to Class III molar relationship in the permanent dentition. Finally, the group with distal step developed into Class II in the permanent dentition. It can be concluded that the terminal relationship of deciduous second molars was associated with the permanent first molars occlusion.

    Full Text Available Intentional tooth reimplantation can be an alternative treatment option for teeth with poor or hopeless prognosis where coronal and surgical endodontic treatment(s are not possible. This technique may help to restore a natural tooth to function in preference to prosthesis/implant replacements. A 38-years old male was referred to private practice with persistent chronic apical periodontitis of a previously root canal treated mandibular left first molar. A furcal perforation and distolingual cusp fracture was previously repaired and treated with amalgam (~5 years ago. In view of the patient/tooth’s limitations, intentional reimplantation was planned using CEM cement retrograde filling. Clinical and radiographic follow-up during 2 years postoperatively revealed no sign/symptoms of infection or inflammation. Moreover, periradicular healing was evident on radiographs.

    To evaluate the predictive potential of preoperative psychological and psychophysiological variables in estimating severity of postoperative pain following mandibular third molar surgery (MTMS). Methods: Following ethical committee approval and informed consent, 40 consecutive patients scheduled for MTMS were included. Preoperative psychometric indicators of anxiety, depression, and vulnerability were evaluated by patient questionnaires. Thermal thresholds and heat pain perception (1 second phasic stimuli: 44 degrees C to 48 degrees C) were evaluated with quantitative sensory testing techniques. Standardized surgery was performed during local anesthesia. Postoperative pain management was with rescue paracetamol and ibuprofen. The patients were instructed to record each day their pain at rest and during dynamic conditions, and their requirement of analgesics for 14 days following surgery.

    Scimitar syndrome is a rare anomaly involving a pulmonary vein flowing into the inferior vena cava (scimitar vein) and is commonly associated with lung hypoplasia wherein a scimitar vein drains the entire lung. We report a rare case of a scimitar vein draining only the right inferior lobe found in a 77-year-old male cadaver. In this case, no hypoplastic lung or abnormal lobulation were observed. The scimitar vein drained the inferior lobe of the right lung after piercing the diaphragm and draining into the inferior vena cava. The remaining two right pulmonary veins, draining the superior and middle lobes, terminated into the left atrium. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a scimitar vein during gross anatomical dissection in an adult cadaver. In adults, scimitar veins are often benign, incidental findings, and little is known about them. The present case of a scimitar vein partially draining the lung without lung hypoplasia offers important insights into the formative processes of the pulmonary venous system. PMID:24633625

  5. Comparison of panoramic radiography with cone beam CT in predicting the relationship of the mandibular third molar roots to the alveolar canal

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Preoperative radiographic assessment of the mandibular third molars is essential to prevent inferior alveolar nerve damage during extraction. The purpose of this study was to assess the reliability of panoramic signs of association between the roots of teeth and the canal, and to compare the panoramic signs with cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) findings. CBCT images of 132 impacted mandibular third molars were evaluated to determine the association of the root to the canal. The CBCT findings were compared with the corresponding panoramic images. Logistic regression analysis was used to define the diagnostic criteria of the panoramic images. Among the panoramic signs, loss of the cortical line was the most frequent radiographic sign predicting association (sensitivity: 79.31). Contact of the tooth with the canal was observed in all cases in which the loss of cortical line of the canal or darkening of the roots was found on the panoramic radiographs. Darkening of the roots and loss of the cortical line on panoramic radiographs might be highly suggestive of the risk of nerve injury.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 15 healthy patients aged 8-10 years old, with early exfoliated mandibular second deciduous molar, were included. DVT image [...] s of one quadrant of the mandible were obtained using Kodak extraoral imaging systems and analyzed by Kodak dental imaging software. The error of the method (EM) was calculated using Dahlberg's formula. Mean and standard deviation were calculated at 6 and 8 mm from the cementoenamel junction (CEJ).Paired t-test was used to analyze the measurements. RESULTS: Buccal cortical bone thickness, mesiodistal width and buccolingual bone depth at 6 mm were found to be 1.73 + 0.41, 2.15 + 0.49 and 13.18 + 1.22 mm, respectively; while at 8 mm measurements were 2.42 + 0.34, 2.48 + 0.33 and 13.65 + 1.25 mm, respectively. EM for buccal cortical bone thickness, mesiodistal width and buccolingual bone depth was 0.58, 0.40 and 0.48, respectively. The difference in measurement at 6 and 8 mm for buccal cortical plate thickness (P 0.05). CONCLUSION: Bone thickness measurement has shown promising evidence for safe placement of miniscrews in the mandible during mixed dentition. The use of miniscrew is the best alternative, even in younger patients.

  9. Computed tomographic anatomy of the mandibular first and second molars and their surrounding structures in the spread of odontogenic infection

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The purposes of this study were to analyze the CT anatomy of the mandibular first and second molars in uninfected subjects and to clarify the pathway of odontogenic infection originating from the mandibular first and second molars. CT anatomies, especially for bucco-lingual aspects and the surrounding soft tissues, were investigated in 100 uninfected subjects and 17 infected patients. At the level of bifurcation, disappearance of the cortical plates was frequently observed on the buccal and lingual sides of the first molars, and it was reduced on the buccal side in the second molar. In the first molar, the bony width was thinner on the buccal than the lingual side. The lingual cortices were thinner in the second molar. All medial pterygoid and 88% of masseter muscles were situated posteriorly, without horizontally overlapping the second molar, whereas the mylohyoid muscle (MhM) overlapped horizontally with the first and second molars. The MhM was positioned superior to the root apices in 10 and 39% of first and second molars, respectively. All patients with first molar infection showed involvement of buccal structures, and one showed lingual side involvement. In contrast, six of nine patients with second molar infection showed involvement on the lingual side. Infection originating from the second molar was more likely to spread to the lingual side than infection originating from the first molar. CT anatomy surrounding the causal teeth supported the spread pathways of al teeth supported the spread pathways of mandibular first and second molar infection. (author)

RESULTS: Six (20%) patients presented lesions of up to 30% of the total lip surface that required primary closure. Eighteen (60%) patients had lesions of 30-80% of the total area of the lower lip that were repaired using a myomucosal flap; in 14 of these patients, bilateral skin flaps were also used due to cutaneous involvement associated with the resection. Five (16.6%) patients had lesions on the lower lip that were adjacent to the oral commissure; therefore, they underwent reconstruction using an Abbé-Estlander flap with a myomucosal flap and bilateral skin flaps.

    We herein report a patient with demyelinating inferior alveolar nerve hypertrophy, which was initially suspected to have a nerve tumor. A 39-year-old woman with childhood-onset polyneuropathy presented with tooth pain and visited a dental clinic. An X-ray examination of the mandible revealed enlargement of the mandibular canal, and a nerve tumor was suspected. CT scan and MRI showed hypertrophy of the inferior alveolar nerve along its entire length. We diagnosed the patient with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP), which was supported by the spontaneous recovery reported in her childhood, the results from a nerve conduction study and MRI data. CIDP should be considered in the differential diagnosis of mandibular canal enlargement. PMID:25948359

  9. Bilateral catheterization of inferior petrosal sinous: Utility in Cushing syndrome

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The aim of this study is to present our experience on bilateral and simultaneous inferior petrous sinus catheterization, on those patients with ACTH -dependent Cushing's syndrome. We describe the procedure and our results. Material and Method: A retrospective study was held between January 2003 and September 2009, including nine patients (2 men, 7 women) presenting ACTH - dependent Cushing's syndrome. Simultaneous inferior petrosal sinus catheterization was performed in all of them, sampling basal ACTH and after CRH stimulation. ACTH levels gradient in different pituitary locations and peripheral blood levels was recorded. Diagnosis was suggested when inappropriate and maintained hypercortisolemia. High urinary free cortisol levels and no response to dexamethasone suppression were detected. Eight out of nine patients had a prior negative imaging test result. Results: Inferior petrosal sinus bilateral catheterization was successfully performed in all cases, with no evidence of further complications. The results showed definitive diagnosis in all cases. In four patients ACTH levels gradient was lateralized to the left, leading to a specific surgical approach. One patient presented pituitary ACTH - secreting adenoma. Two other patients showed ectopic ACTH production, one showed suprarenal adenoma secreting ACTH and other one showed response to pituitary stimulation without side lateralisation, presenting a histological diagnosis of pituitary hyperplasia. Conclusion: Petrof pituitary hyperplasia. Conclusion: Petrosal sinus catheterization is shown to be an efficient procedure to manage Cushing's syndrome differential diagnosis and to obtain specific anatomical information.

    Full Text Available La información relacionada a la anatomía del foramen fisiológico apical es limitada. Conocer su diámetro y forma contribuye al trabajo clínico, específicamente en los procedimientos de limpieza y conformación del tercio apical. El objetivo de este estudio ex vivo fue determinar los diámetros menor, [...] mayor y la forma del foramen fisiológico apical en las raíces de primeros molares maxilares y mandibulares. Se realizó un estudio descriptivo sobre 89 primeros molares recientemente extraídos. Se seccionaron las raíces a 3­5 mm del ápice y fueron preparadas para su análisis bajo magnificación de 40X. Se midieron los diámetros mayor y menor de cada foramen fisiológico mediante el programa Motic Images plus 2.0 ML. La forma de los forámenes fue determinada de acuerdo a la diferencia entre diámetro mayor y menor, clasificándose como redondo, oval o irregular. Un total de 174 forámenes fisiológicos fueron analizados. El promedio del diámetro menor y mayor fue entre 0,24­0,33 mm en primeros molares maxilares y entre 0,25­0,33 mm en primeros molares mandibulares. En molares maxilares, la forma del foramen más común fue la oval (50%), luego irregular (32%) y redonda (18%). En molares mandibulares, la forma oval también fue la más frecuente (59%), seguida por la irregular (23%) y redonda (18%). Los hallazgos de este estudio en relación a morfología de los forámenes fisiológicos apicales en primeros molares, permite al operador facilitar la elección de instrumentos del calibre adecuado para realizar con éxito la terapia endodóntica. Abstract in english Information regarding the anatomy of the physiological apical foramen is limited. Knowing its diameter and shapes contributes to clinical work, specifically to the cleaning and shaping of the apical third. The aim of this ex vivo study was to determine the minimum and maximum diameters and shape of [...] the physiological apical foramen in the roots of maxillary and mandibular first molars. A descriptive study was conducted on 89 recently extracted first molars. Roots 3-5 mm from the apex were sectioned and prepared for analysis at 40x magnification. The minimum and maximum diameters of each physiological foramen were measured using the program Motic Images plus 2.0 ML. The shape of the foramina, classified as round, oval or irregular, was determined by the difference between the maximum and minimum diameters. A total of 174 physiological foramina were analyzed. The average of the minimum and maximum diameters was between 0.24-0.33 mm in maxillary first molars and between 0.25-0.33 mm in mandibular first molars. In maxillary molars, the most common shape of the foramen was oval (50%), then irregular (32%), then round (18%). In mandibular molars, the oval shape was also the most frequent (59%), followed by irregular (23%) and round (18%). The findings of this study regarding the morphology of physiological apical foramina in first molars make it easier for the operator to choose the appropriately-sized instruments to perform endodontic therapy successfully.

Parte do movimento dentário ocorre por distalização dos primeiros molares superiores. Esta pesquisa teve como objetivo avaliar a quantidade e o tipo de movimento distal ocorrido com os primeiros molares superiores permanentes, e a conseqüência destes movimentos sobre o plano oclusal funcional durante o período de utilização do aparelho de Herbst. A amostra foi composta de 22 pacientes portadores da má oclusão de classe II esquelética, retrognatismo mandibular, com idade média de 12 anos e 11 meses, tratados por um período médio de 10,1 meses. Os aparelhos foram construídos utilizando a ancoragem total no arco maxilar, visando potencializar a ação ortopédica e minimizar a perda de ancoragem. As alterações foram medidas em cefalogramas específicos obtidos das telerradiografias em norma lateral tomadas em dois tempos: tempo 1 (T1) antes da instalação do aparelho, e tempo 2 (T2), após sua remoção. Medidas cefalométricas lineares e angulares em relação ao plano horizontal de Frankfurt, plano palatino e a uma linha vertical de referência a partir do ponto S perpendicular a Frankfurt, foram utilizadas para quantificar os deslocamentos dos primeiros molares superiores. Foram avaliados: o deslocamento distal médio das coroas, o deslocamento distal médio de suas raízes, a conseqüente inclinação no longo eixo dos molares durante a distalização, o deslocamento vertical em relação ao plano palatino, e finalmente, a conseqüência da variação vertical do primeiro molar sobre o plano oclusal funcional. Os mostraram distalização molar em todos os casos, em média a distalização das coroas foi de 1,6 mm e a distalização de raízes, média 1,1 mm. A intrusão média foi de 0,8 mm em relação ao plano palatino, com a inclinação distal média dos molares de 2,6º, alterações significante estatisticamente. O plano oclusal apresentou inclinação no sentido horário em relação ao plano horizontal de Frankfurt de 2,5º, em média. Concluimos que o aparelho de Herbst é capaz de promover distalização e intrusão dos primeiros molares superiores.

Part of the dental movement is upper molar distalization. This search had the objective of assessing the kind and amount of first upper molar movement using the Herbst appliance. The sample was composed by 22 skeletal Class II young patients, mean age 12 years 11 months, treated during a period of 10,1 month. The Herbst was constructed using the total anchorage method on the maxillary arch. Lateral cephalometric analysis was used joining linear and angular mesurements in two ocasions: T1, before tretment, and T2 after the appliance had been removed. The refference lines used to compare the points located in the upper molar were the horizontal Frankfurt an S perpendicular throw Frankfurt. The results showed significant distal movement of the molar crown and root while the oclusal surface was intruded in comparing to palatal plane. In consequence the occlusal plane rotated in relation to Frankfurt. Our conclusion is that the Herbst appliance is able to promote molar distalization and molar intrusion on the upper arch.

    The maxillary sinus or antrum is the largest of the paranasal sinuses. It is located in the maxillary bone and has a proximity to the apexes of upper molars and premolars, which allows it to form a direct link between the sinus and the oral cavity. Dislocation of a foreign body or tooth to the interior of a paranasal sinus is a situation that can occur as a result of car accidents, firearm attacks, or iatrogenic in surgical procedures. Therefore, it is necessary to know how to treat this kind of situation. This study's objective is to report the case of a 23-year-old female patient, leucoderma, who sought treatment from the Surgical Unit at the Dental Faculty of the Federal University of Sergipe. She had a history of pain and edema in the right side of the genian region and two failed attempts at removing dental unit (DU) 18. The extraoral clinical exam revealed intense edema of the left hemiface with signs of infection, excoriation of the labial commissure, hematoma, a body temperature of 39°C, and a limited ability to open her mouth. The patient was medicated and treated surgically. The tooth was removed from the maxillary sinus with caution, as should have been done initially. PMID:25705524

  16. Factors affecting root curvature of mandibular first molar

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    To find the cause of root curvature by use of panoramic and lateral cephalometric radiograph. Twenty six 1st graders whose mandibular 1st molars just emerged into the mouth were selected. Panoramic and lateral cephalometric radiograph were taken at grade 1 and 6, longitudinally. In cephalometric radio graph, mandibular plane angle, ramus-occlusal place angle, gonial angle, and gonion-gnathion distance(Go-Gn distance) were measured. In panoramic radiograph, elongated root length and root angle were measured by means of digital subtraction radiography. Occlusal plane-tooth axis angle was measured, too. Pearson correlations were used to evaluate the relationships between root curvature and elongated length and longitudinal variations of all variables. Multiple regression equation using related variables was computed. The pearson correlation coefficient between curved angle and longitudinal variations of occlusal plane-tooth axis angle and ramus-occlusal plane angle was 0.350 and 0.401, respectively (p1+0.745X2(Y: root angle, X1: variation of occlusal plane-tooth axis angle, X2: variation of ramus-occlusal plane angle). It was suspected that the reasons of root curvature were change of tooth axis caused by contact with 2nd deciduous tooth and amount of mesiath 2nd deciduous tooth and amount of mesial and superior movement related to change of occlusal plane

    Full Text Available Abstract Objectives The records of 1087 patients who underwent surgical removal of third molar teeth were prospectively examined to analyse the possible relationship between postoperative complications and the surgeon's experience parameter. Method and materials Seven surgeons (three specialists in surgical dentistry [specialists SD] and four oral and maxillofacial Senior House Officers [OMFS residents] carried out the surgical procedures. For each patient, several variables were recorded including age, gender, radiographic position of extracted teeth, treating surgeon, duration of surgery and postoperative complications. Results Analysis of the data revealed some differences in the incidence of complications produced by the specialists SD and OMFS residents. The main statistically relevant differences were increase the incidences of trismus, nerve paraesthesia, alveolar osteitis and infection in the resident-treated group, while the specialist-treated group showed higher rates of post-operative bleeding. Conclusion The higher rate of postoperative complications in the resident-treated group suggests that at least some of the complications might be related to surgical experience. Further work needs to compare specialists of training programmes with different years of experience, using large cross – sectional studies.

Los autores presentan un caso de ruptura del ligamento tibio-peroneo inferior posterior en el tobillo izquierdo, en un paciente de 13 años [...] de edad, cuyo diagnóstico inicial en radiografías simples fue de esguince de tobillo; sin embargo, se solicitó una TC del tobillo en donde se corroboró la lesión de este paciente tratado en el Hospital Infantil de Morelia. La TC como elemento de apoyo en el diagnóstico de la diástasis tibio-peronea inferior es de gran ayuda pues la ruptura del ligamento tibio-peroneo distal posterior de la mortaja en el tobillo pasa desapercibida en estos pacientes que son diagnosticados inicialmente como esguinces de tobillo. Abstract in english Fracture-dislocations of the ankle are very frequent in adults. The injuries described by Salter and Harris in developing patients are also common. The authors present a case of tear of the posterior-inferior tibiofibular ligament of the left ankle in a 13 year-old patient. The initial diagnosis wit [...] h plain X-rays was ankle sprain; however, an ankle CT scan confirmed the patient's injury and he was treated at Morelia's Children's Hospital. CT scan is an extremely useful aid in diagnosing inferior tibiofibular diastasis because the tear of the posterior distal tibiofibular ligament of the ankle mortise is missed in these patients, who initially are diagnosed as having an ankle sprain.

    Full Text Available A extração dos pré-molares ocorre convencionalmente como parte da terapia ortodôntica, no intuito de resolver uma série de problemas. Todavia sua utilização para o controle da dimensão vertical gera muitas controvérsias. Esse estudo retrospectivo avaliou cefalometricamente as telerradiografias, toma [...] das em norma lateral, de 30 jovens do gênero feminino, com má oclusão do tipo Classe II, divisão 1, dolicofaciais, com idade média de 12,3 anos, variando entre 9 e 17 anos, tratadas ortodonticamente com aparelho fixo tipo edgewise e uso de extrabucal com tração alta, das quais 15 submeteram-se à exodontia dos primeiros pré-molares e as outras 15 não realizaram exodontias. As medidas cefalométricas N-Me, N-ENA, ENA-Me, S-Go, Ar-Go, 6-PP, 6-ENAperp, 6-GoGn, 6-Pogperp, SN.GoGn, SN.PP, PP.GoGn, ENA-Me/N-Me, S-Go/N-Me e Go-Ar/S-Go foram estudadas. Os resultados revelaram: 1) que a exodontia dos primeiros pré-molares, associada à extrusão dos primeiros molares e ao crescimento, não permitiu uma diferença nas alterações da AFAI entre os grupos, 2) ocorreu uma mesialização dos molares superiores e inferiores no grupo com exodontias, 3) a AFAT aumentou similarmente nos dois grupos, 4) o aumento da AFAT ocorreu de forma significativamente maior no grupo sem exodontias, devido ao maior aumento da AFAS, indicando que o crescimento possui um papel preponderante no controle da dimensão vertical durante o tratamento ortodôntico, 5) observamos a manutenção dos valores angulares durante o tratamento devido principalmente ao crescimento vertical posterior que ocorreu na mesma proporção do crescimento da região anterior da face em ambos os grupos durante o tratamento ortodôntico. Abstract in english Premolar extractions are often utilized as part of orthodontic treatment to solve a wide range of problems. However, its use to control vertical dimension is still controversial. This retrospective study investigated the lateral cephalometric measurements of 30 dolichocephalic girls, with Class II d [...] ivision 1 malocclusion. These patients were treated with edgewise appliances and high traction headgear. From the whole group 15 had four first bicuspids extractions and 15 had no extractions. The mean age was 12.3 years, ranging from 9 to 17 years. The cephalometric measurements N-Me, N-ANS, ANS-Me, S-Go, Ar-Go, 6-PP, 6-ANSperp, 6-GoGn, 6-Pogperp, SN.GoGn, SN.PP, PP.GoGn, ANS-Me/N-Me, S-Go/N-Me, and Go-Ar/S-Go were used in the study. The study revealed that: 1) the extraction of the first premolar associated with extrusion of the first molars and growth did not cause any difference in the lower anterior facial height between the two groups; 2) both upper and lower first molars moved mesially in the extraction group; 3) the increase in the lower anterior facial height was similar for both groups; 4) the total anterior facial height was larger in the non extraction group due to a higher increase in the upper anterior facial height; and 5)- the angular measurements did not change significantly in both groups during treatment, most likely because growth between the posterior and the anterior vertical dimension were balanced.

    Full Text Available El objetivo de esta investigación fue estudiar clínicamente la eficacia de la terapia con amoxicilina en terceros molares retenidos sobre las condiciones postoperatorias de edema, dolor, trismus e infección. Fueron seleccionados 14 pacientes de entre 15 y 30 años con la retención de los dientes 3.8 [...] y 4.8 en la misma posición según las clasificaciones utilizadas actualmente. Se realizó inicialmente una cirugía y posteriormente la segunda; se estableció un grupo test con terapia antibiótica (amoxicilina 500mg c/8h por 7 días) y un grupo control que no utilizo antibióticos. El edema fue estudiado a través de la distancia de puntos faciales de referencia y la evaluación del trimus fue obtenida por medio de la distancia interincisal superior e inferior. El dolor fue estudiado mediante escala visual análoga. No existió diferencia estadísticamente significativa en relación al edema y al trismus en los periodos estudiados; existió diferencia estadísticamente significativa respecto al dolor durante los primeros dos días, siendo el grupo test que presentaba más dolor. A los 7 días ya no se apreció diferencias. Finalmente, la amoxicilina como terapia posterior a la exodoncia de terceros molares no se relaciona con las condiciones postoperatorias del paciente. Abstract in english The aim of this study was to clinically evaluate the efficacy of antibiotics in retained third molar extractions, determining the need of antibiotics prophylaxis use in these procedures. Fourteen (14) patients, aged between 15 and 30 years, irrespective of sex, color or race were selected, for remov [...] al of retained third molars in symmetrical positions. The surgeries were divided into two groups: the control group in the first surgery and the second group undergoing prophylactic administration of 500 mg of amoxicillin 8 / 8 hours, for seven days after surgery. The evaluation of edema was established by the distance of reference points and assessment of facial trismus and was obtained by top and bottom interincisal distance. Measurements were performed before and after surgery, 24, 48 hours and for 7 days. Pain was evaluated subjectively by a visual analog scale. There was no statistically significant difference with respect to swelling and trismus after dental extractions with or without the use of antibiotics, and there was statistically significant difference in relation to pain in the postoperative periods of 24 and 48 hours, and increased pain reported by the test group. At day seven no differences were noted in perception of pain between the groups. Finally, the amoxicillin therapy subsequent to the third molar surgery is not related to the postoperatory conditions of the patient.

  8. Evaluation of the distortion rate of panoramic and peri apical radiographs in erupted third molar inclination

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Panoramic and peri apical radiographs are normally used in impacted third molar teeth surgeries. The aim of the present study was to evaluate and compare the distortion of the erupted third molar teeth on panoramic and peri apical radiographs. Patients and Methods: A total of 44 radiographs were obtained of 22 patients (age range, 18-24 years) referred to the faculty of dentistry for orthodontic treatment. A plaster cast was prepared and panoramic radiography was taken for all patients to plan the orthodontic treatment and peri apical radiography was taken for investigation of tooth structure details. Therefore, a total of 66 views and samples were studied by two methods: 1) Measuring the angle between the longitudinal plane of the third molar and occlusal plane. 2) Measuring the angle between the longitudinal plane of second and third molar. Finally, 132 records were evaluated by one individual. Results: There was no significant statistical difference between the mean position of the third molar on panoramic, peri apical radiographs and the casts. However, measurements of the third molars on peri apical radiographs were slightly closer to the measurements of the casts compared to the panoramic radiographs. Conclusion: Distortion does not have a specific effect on the diagnosis of the position of the third erupted molars by peri apical or panoramic radiographs, though various studies have shown that these radiographs have an amount of distortion and peri apical radiogmount of distortion and peri apical radiographical distortion is less than that in panoramic radiography.

    Previous studies have suggested methods for predicting third molar tooth eruption radiographically. Still, this prediction is associated with uncertainty. The aim of the present study was to elucidate the association between cephalometric measurements on profile and panoramic radiographs and to find a simple and reliable method for predicting the eruption of the mandibular third molar by measurements on panoramic radiographs. The material consisted of profile and panoramic radiographs, taken before orthodontic treatment, of 30 males and 23 females (median age 22, range 18-48 years), with no known diseases. Cephalometric measurements on panoramic and profile radiographs were performed and compared, i.e. the size of the gonial angle and sagittal distance from the alveolar margin between the mandibular central incisors to the anterior border of the mandibular ramus. Furthermore, the mesiodistal width of the second molar was measured. Statistical methods included analysis of method error. The probability of eruption was modelled using logistic regression analysis. Correlation was observed between all measurements on profile and panoramic radiographs. The skeletal variable expressing the length from the ramus to the incisors (olr-id) showed a statistically significant correlation. By combining this length with the mesiodistal width of the lower second molar, the prediction of eruption of the lower third molar was strengthened. A new formula for calculating the probability of eruption of the mandibular third molar was made and a graph constructed for easy assessment. In conclusion, a simple method for predicting the eruption of the third molar is presented.

  10. National clinical guidelines for the extraction of first permanent molars in children.

    2014-12-01

    This article summarises recently updated guidelines produced by the Clinical Governance Directorate of the British Orthodontic Society through the Clinical Standards Committee of the Faculty of Dental Surgery, Royal College of Surgeons of England (FDSRCS) on the extraction of first permanent molars in children. The first permanent molar is susceptible to chronological enamel defects, molar-incisor hypomineralisation and caries, which may necessitate enforced extraction in the developing dentition. In the right circumstances, the extraction of these teeth can be followed by successful eruption of the second permanent molar and ultimately, third molar eruption to complete the molar dentition. For this reason, elective extraction of first permanent molars with a questionable long-term prognosis should be considered when planning enforced extractions. However, a number of factors can influence the decision-making process, including the necessity for a general anaesthetic to allow extraction, potential cooperation with restorative or orthodontic treatment and likely future preventative practice within the family. Moreover, the presence of any underlying malocclusion also needs to be evaluated within the context of extraction planning. The current available evidence has been evaluated and awarded a grade based upon those recommended by the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network. PMID:25476643

    To find the cause of root curvature by use of panoramic and lateral cephalometric radiograph. Twenty six 1st graders whose mandibular 1st molars just emerged into the mouth were selected. Panoramic and lateral cephalometric radiograph were taken at grade 1 and 6, longitudinally. In cephalometric radio graph, mandibular plane angle, ramus-occlusal place angle, gonial angle, and gonion-gnathion distance(Go-Gn distance) were measured. In panoramic radiograph, elongated root length and root angle were measured by means of digital subtraction radiography. Occlusal plane-tooth axis angle was measured, too. Pearson correlations were used to evaluate the relationships between root curvature and elongated length and longitudinal variations of all variables. Multiple regression equation using related variables was computed. The pearson correlation coefficient between curved angle and longitudinal variations of occlusal plane-tooth axis angle and ramus-occlusal plane angle was 0.350 and 0.401, respectively (p<0.05). There was no significant correlation between elongated root length and longitudinal variations of all variables. The resulting regression equation was Y=10.209+0.208X{sub 1}+0.745X{sub 2}(Y: root angle, X{sub 1}: variation of occlusal plane-tooth axis angle, X{sub 2}: variation of ramus-occlusal plane angle). It was suspected that the reasons of root curvature were change of tooth axis caused by contact with 2nd deciduous tooth and amount of mesial and superior movement related to change of occlusal plane.

  12. Molar mass dependent growth of poly(epsilon-caprolactone) crystals in Langmuir films.

    2007-02-27

    Poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL) samples with number average molar masses (Mn) ranging from 3.5 to 36 kg.mol-1 exhibit molar mass dependent nucleation and growth of crystals, crystal morphologies, and melting properties at a temperature of 22.5 degrees C in Langmuir films at the air/water (A/W) interface. At surface area per monomer, A, greater than approximately 0.37 nm2.monomer-1, surface pressure, Pi, and surface elasticity exhibit molar mass independent behavior that is consistent with a semidilute PCL monolayer. In this regime, the scaling exponent indicates that the A/W interface is a good solvent for the liquid-expanded PCL monolayers. Pi-A isotherms show molar mass dependent behavior in the vicinity of the collapse transition, i.e., the supersaturated monolayer state, corresponding to the onset of the nucleation of crystals. Molar mass dependent morphological features for PCL crystals and their subsequent crystal melting are studied by in situ Brewster angle microscopy during hysteresis experiments. The competition between lower segmental mobility and a greater degree of undercooling with increasing molar mass produces a maximum average growth rate at intermediate molar mass. This behavior is analogous to spherulitic growth in bulk PCL melts. The plateau regions in the expansion isotherms represent the melting process, where the polymer chains continuously return to the monolayer state. The magnitude of Pi for the plateau during expansion decreases with increasing molar mass, indicating that the melting process is strongly molar mass dependent. PMID:17243735

    Full Text Available Aim: We attempted to assess the part care to the first permanent molars represents in total spending for dental care and to estimate the economic and medical advisability of using the pit and fissure sealing technique on the first permanent molars for the prevention of tooth decay. Method: We studied a representative sample of 2649 affiliates in the Nord – Pas-de-Calais and Picardie regions who were reimbursed for dental care on October 15, 1998. 54% of the patients in the sample (1437 were examined by a member of health care’s advisory dental staff. Results: The first permanent molars represent 28% of total reimbursed costs for care given to all the permanent teeth. 34% of all reimbursed conservative treatment for the first permanent molars concern patients under twenty years of age. In children aged 5 to 9 years who had reimbursed dental care, caries occurring on the occlusal side of the first permanent molars constitute 71% of all decayed or filled first molars. 47% of all patients in this age group have dental caries on the occlusal side of at least one permanent molar. 87% of their first molars present caries on the occlusal surface or have no tooth decay. We failed to find any correlation between dental decay on the occlusal surface and the socio-economic characteristics of the affiliates. Conclusion: All children between 5 and 9 years old do not require pit and fissure sealing for the prevention of dental caries on the occlusal surface of their first permanent molars. Before this technique is approved for reimbursement by health insurance, guidelines are needed for defining its indications.

  16. Preliminary experimental study of retrievable nitinol inferior vena cava filter

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Objective: To evaluate, in vitro and in an animal model together with the placement, stability, clot capturing efficacy, retrieval and safety of a new non-invasive retrievable nitinol inferior vena cava filter (RNIVCF) for temporary or permanent use. Methods: RNIVCF were made by wrapping nitinol monofilament wire on a steel mandrill to form a steric configuration. A 5-F Teflon sheath/dilator was taken for placement and retrieval. In vitro clots' trapping was assessed with size of 2.5/3/4-mm-diameter clots. Twenty adult mongrel dogs were used in this study. 2.5-mm-diameter homologous radiopaque clots (2.5-mm-HRC) were injected into IVC until the experimental animals die of acute pulmonary embolism (PE) and then to determine the minimum fatal quantity of clots in 8 dogs. RNIVCFs were introduced into the inferior vena cava in 12 dogs. For 10 animals, 10-ml 2.5-mm-HRC were injected below the filter to test its thrombus-trapping efficacy. The retrieval of filter was attempted on the 7th day after placement in two other dogs. Plain films of the abdomen and chest were made to document the effectiveness of the filter. Results: Initial experimental study showed that the RNIVCF functioned as intended. In vitro all 3 and 4-mm-diameter clots injected in the device simulating IVC flow was trapped by the filter. However, 95%-100% 2.5-mm-diameter clots were also captured by it. More than 10-ml 2.5-mm-HRC with once injection into IVC could cause the death of experimental animals due use the death of experimental animals due to acute PE in per-experiment. RNIVCF could be easily and successfully placed percutaneously in the inferior vena cava of the dogs through a 5-F sheath. The filter was accurately positioned in the inferior vena cava by moving the retrieval wire. All 13 RNIVCFs were placed in 12 dogs, one of those has double inferior vena cava and two filters were implanted. The filters trapped these 2.5-mm-diameter clots in the iliac veins of 8 dogs and none of them died of acute PE. But the initial two dogs with two original RNIVCF died of acute PE due to hypertension of the inferior vena cava below the filters caused by injecting too much clots to force the trapped clots passing through the filters. Therefore, only 10-ml clots was necessary for injection into each the IVC of the dogs and thus the stabilized portion of the original RNIVCF can change into three-petals-quincunx shape. Two filters were retrieved successfully through the sheath/dilator in the 7th day after placement without difficulty. Conclusion: RNIVCF is a kind of sophisticated device for retracting emboli. It can be sited percutaneously with 5F delivery permanently or temporarily in stable condition. The smooth contours cause no traumatic effect especially for retrieving small emboli

    Full Text Available Para distalizar los molares superiores en pacientes con maloclusiones clase II, se han utilizado diversos aparatos. Se ha visto que la mayoría de ellos tienden a rotar e inclinar las coronas de los primeros molares. En este trabajo se presenta un aparato fijo capaz de distalizar los molares con muy poca rotación e inclinación, que no requiere el uso de fuerzas extra-orales. La aplicación de fuerzas ligeras y constantes mediante pistones de níquel-titanio optimizan los movimientos y disminuyen el tiempo de tratamiento. Otra ventaja de este dispositivo reside en que por estar cementado no se necesita cooperación por parte del paciente.

    Full Text Available Thorough understanding of the anatomic and internal morphology of a root canal system is absolutely essential for the success of endodontic treatment. Since permanent maxillary first molars have shown variation in internal anatomy, morphology, this tooth has been reviewed extensively. Presence of two canals in a two-rooted maxillary first molar has rarely been reported in studies describing tooth and root canal anatomies. In this report, three cases are presented, which involve the root canal treatment of maxillary first molars with fusion of the two buccal roots.

La prevalen-cia varía entre 9% y 37% (McNamara & Foley, 2006), en tanto Arboleda et al. (2006) señalan una prevalencia del 20%. La literatura señala variables estadísticas porcentuales, por género, por arcada dentaria, por lado y por diente, con escasos artículos sobre grupos originarios de Chile. La población en estudio consistió en 78 individuos, 42 hombres y 36 mujeres, entre 18 y 40 años, de la etnia aymara, sin exodoncias del tercer molar ni tratamientos ortodónticos y sin malformaciones congénitas. Se determinó el grado de mestizaje mediante técnica sero lógica de hemo-aglutinación y por aplicación de la fórmula de Bernstein, que demostró 51% de mezcla indígena. A cada individuo se le tomó radiografía panorámica para observar presencia o ausencia de terceros molares. Se determinó un 21,79% de agenesia, con mayor porcentaje masculino. En la muestra total y en hombres hay mayor agenesia de terceros molares mandibulares, en cambio en mujeres existe igual porcentaje de agenesia en ambas arcadas. Predominan agenesias izquierdas, lo mismo se comprueba en el género masculino, mientras que en mujeres se comprueba igual porcentaje bilateral. Predomina la agenesia de un solo molar en ambos sexos. Nuestros resultados fueron comparados con atácamenos y con jóvenes antofagastinos y no se determinaron diferencias significativas al 95%, coincidiendo con lo señalado en la literatura. La investigación representa un aporte a la antropología del norte de Chile, pero considerando lo reducido de la muestra no es posible determinar variables étnicas. Abstract in english Agenesis is the absence of teeth by genetic alterations, single or as syndrome. Agenesis of third molar is associated to malformations and is considered by diverse authors a consequence of the human evolution (Larmour et al., 2005). The third molars together with second premolars and lateral incisor [...] s are the teeth with greater prevalence of agenesis (Fuller & Denehy, 1984). The prevalence varies between 9% and 37% (McNamara & Foley, 2006); Arboleda et al. (2006) indicated a prevalence of 20%. Literature indicate variable percentage, by gender, dental arches, side and tooth, with few articles on original groups of Chile. The population in study consisted in 78 cases, 42 men and 36 women between 18 and 40 years of the ethnic group of aymarás, without extractions of third molar nor orthodontic treatments and without congenital malformations. Hybridism was determined by means of serum technique by blood agglutination and by application of the formula of Bernstein, demonstrated a 51% of indigenous mixture. To each individual a panoramic x-ray was taken to observe presence or absence of third molars. A 21.79% of agenesis was determined, with greater percentage among males. Agenesis lower third molar predominates in the sample and in men; however in women are greater agenesis upper third molar. In addition, agenesis predominates of the left side in both sexes, while in men equal bilateral percentage is verified. Agenesis of two molars predominates in both sexes. Our results be are compared with atácamenos and young people living in Antofagasta and statistical analyses did not show significant differences at the 95% level, and the results and, in general, agree with those in the literature. This research represents a contribution to the anthropology of the north of Chile, but it is not possible to determine ethnic variables considering the small sample in study.

    We report a case of penetration of the inferior vena cava (IVC) by all four primary struts of a Celect caval filter in a 17-year-old girl with Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome. The girl presented with acute lower abdominal and right leg pain 17 days after filter insertion. An abdominal radiograph demonstrated that the filter had moved caudally and that the primary struts had splayed considerably since insertion. Contrast-enhanced CT confirmed that all four primary struts had penetrated the IVC wall. There was a small amount of retroperitoneal hemorrhage. The surrounding vessels and viscera were intact. The filter was subsequently retrieved without complication. (orig.)

    Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are used to protect against pulmonary embolism in high-risk patients. Whilst the insertion of retrievable IVC filters is gaining popularity, a proportion of such devices cannot be removed using standard techniques. We describe a novel approach for IVC filter removal that involves snaring the filter superiorly along with the use of flexible forceps or laser devices to dissect the filter struts from the caval wall. This technique has used to successfully treat three patients without complications in whom standard techniques failed

    The placement of an inferior vena cava (IVC) filter is a therapeutic method for selected patients with deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. However, insertion and placement of the filter may be associated with certain complications. For instance, retroperitoneal hematoma resulting from perforation of the wall by the filter is such a very rare but serious complication. We report the case of a 64-year-old woman with perforation of the IVC wall and consecutive hematoma caused by the filter who was treated surgically. PMID:21500182

    The clinical diagnosis of inferior vena cava (IVC) obstruction is often difficult, since patients may present with a multitude of signs and symptoms. The clinical manifestations depend on several factors: the underlying cause, the level of obstruction, the adequacy of collateral circulation, the presence of intercurrent disease, and the organ system involved. Although the most common clinical manifestations are deep venous thrombosis in the legs, abdominal pain, low back pain, loin pain and hematuria, patients may present with unusual and varied pathologic conditions. IVC obstruction may resemble or be associated with such conditions as congestive cardiac failure, cirrhosis of the liver or renal disease. (author)

    Objectives Achieving adequate anesthesia with inferior alveolar nerve blocks (IANB) is of great importance during dental procedures. The aim of the present study was to assess the success rate of two anesthetic agents (bupivacaine and lidocaine) for IANB when treating teeth with irreversible pulpitis. Materials and Methods Sixty volunteer male and female patients who required root canal treatment of a mandibular molar due to caries participated in the present study. The inclusion criteria included prolonged pain to thermal stimulus but no spontaneous pain. The patients were randomly allocated to receive either 2% lidocaine with 1:80,000 epinephrine or 0.5% bupivacaine with 1:200,000 epinephrine as an IANB injection. The sensitivity of the teeth to a cold test as well as the amount of pain during access cavity preparation and root canal instrumentation were recorded. Results were statistically analyzed with the Chi-Square and Fischer's exact tests. Results At the final step, fifty-nine patients were included in the study. The success rate for bupivacaine and lidocaine groups were 20.0% and 24.1%, respectively. There was no significant difference between the two groups at any stage of the treatment procedure. Conclusions There was no difference in success rates of anesthesia when bupivacaine and lidocaine were used for IANB injections to treat mandibular molar teeth with irreversible pulpitis. Neither agent was able to completely anesthetize the teeth effectively. Therefore, practitioners should be prepared to administer supplemental anesthesia to overcome pain during root canal treatment.

    Fumigation of two cross-linked UF-resins of molar ratio U:F 1:2.1 and 1:1.4 with ammonia reduces their formaldehyde release. The reduction seems to be more excessive in case of resin with molar ratio U:F 1:2.1. Ammonia fumigation also increases the nitrogen content of the hardened resins depending on their molar ratio U:F. Resin of the molar ratio U:F 1:2.1 is more receptive to ammonia than that of U:F 1:1.4. Moreover, the pH-value of aqueous extractives of the resins increases due to the amm...

    Full Text Available No other factor plays a more significant role in preventive and interceptive dentistry than the preservation of deciduous dentition till its normal time of exfoliation. Premature loss of a deciduous tooth or a group of teeth might lead to wide range of implications. When the deciduous second molar is lost before the eruption of first permanent molar, intra-alveolar type of space maintainer is indicated. But in cases of bilateral loss of these teeth the conventional design generally poses a variety of problems. Thus, the conventional designs are required to be modified according to the needs of the patient. Therefore, this paper describes an entirely new design of the Willet?s appliance in cases of bilateral loss of deciduous molars before the eruption of first permanent molar.

    Molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH) is a defect in the tooth enamel of systemic origin and may affect one or all four first permanent molars frequently associated with the permanent incisors. This case reports a 7-year-old child with severe MIH in the permanent molars associated with tooth decay and intense pain. In the first stage of treatment, therapy was performed with fluoride varnish and restoration with glass ionomer cement (GIC). After 6 years of clinical and radiographic follow-up, the restorations presented wear and fractures on the margins, indicating their replacement with composite resin. Severe cases of MIH in the early permanent molars can be treated with varnish and GIC to restore the patient's comfort and strengthen the hypomineralized dental structures. The clinical and radiographic monitoring frequently indicated when the restoration with composite resin should be performed. PMID:25872636

The purpose of this study was to investigate variations in the root canal system of maxillary first permanent molars in an Iranian population.

    Materials and methods. In this study, 137 maxillary first molars were decalcified, dye-injected, cleared and studied.

    Results. The results demonstrated that 37.96% of the maxillary first molars under study had three canals, 58.4% had four canals and 3.64% had five canals.

    Conclusion. According to the results of this study and considering variations in the root canal systems of maxillary first molars, it seems that great care should be taken in the root canal treatment of these teeth.

    Full Text Available Traumatismos graves de membros inferiores, com grandes perdas cutâneas e comprometimento de estruturas vitais, são casos de difícil resolução. A combinação de vários fatores, como esforço realizado e capacidade de distinguir a gravidade das lesões, ou seja, diferenciar as lesões recuperáveis ou viáv [...] eis daquelas que inevitavelmente irão evoluir para amputação, tem importante papel. Para tanto, surgiram índices que buscam estratificar a gravidade da lesão e predizer a necessidade de amputação, como o índice MESS (do inglês, Mangled Extremity Severity Score). Neste artigo, é reportado um caso de trauma grave de membro inferior, com reconstrução baseada no índice MESS, com emprego de múltiplos retalhos musculares e boa evolução funcional. Abstract in english Severe trauma to the lower limbs, with major skin loss and the compromise of vital structures, is often difficult to treat. A combination of several factors such as ability and effort made to distinguish lesion severity - that is, to differentiate recoverable traumas from those that will inevitably [...] progress to amputation - plays an important role. Therefore, indices were developed to facilitate the stratification of injury severity and prediction of the need for amputation, such as the Mangled Extremity Severity Score (MESS). In this article, we report a case of severe trauma to the lower limb, where reconstruction was performed based on the MESS index with multiple muscle flaps, and a good functional outcome was achieved.

    Full Text Available Objective: The aim of the present study was to evaluate fracture resistance of pulpoto-mized primary molar teeth restored with extensive multisurface amalgam restorations.Materials and Methods: Eighty extracted carious human primary molar teeth were se-lected forpresent study. Teeth were divided in to eight groups of ten. Mesio- or disto-occlusal and Mesio-occluso-distal cavities with different cavity wall thickness (1.5 or 2.5mm were prepared in both first and second primary molar teeth. After restoring teeth with amalgam, all specimens were stored in distilled water at 37°C for 7 days. Then samples were thermocycled for 1000 cycles from 5°C to 55°C. The specimens then were subjected to a compressive load in a universal testing machine at a crosshead speed of 0.5 mm min-1. ANOVA and t-test were used for statistical analysis.Results: Mean fracture resistance of first and second molar teeth were 975.5 N (SD=368.8 and 1049.2 N (SD=540.1 respectively. In the first molar group, fracture resis-tance of two-surface cavities was significantly more than three-surface cavities (P<0.001, however this difference was not statistically significant in the second molar group. In both first and second molar group, fracture resistance incavities with 2.5 mm wall thickness, was significantly more than the group with 1.5 mm wall thickness.Conclusion: The mean fracture resistance in pulpotomized primary molar restored with amalgam restorations was higher than reported maximum bite force in primary teeth even in extensive multi-surface restorations. Therefore, the teeth with large proximal carious lesions in schoolchildren could be restored with amalgam.
