A comparison between three unilateral cleft lip surgical techniques approach: a literature review

Review Article of International Journal of Dental Research and Reviews A comparison between three unilateral cleft lip surgical techniques approach: a literature review Almohawis, Alhaitham Imam Mohammed Bin Saud University, Medical Centre – College of Medicine Unilateral cleft lips are considered to be one of the most common genetic and environmental birth defects globally and regionally, this review shines the light on the different approaches in treating and managing unilateral cleft lips. The different approaches are Millards Technique, Mohlar and finally True Triangle By Dr Abdullah Al Atel. The management of such deformity requires full understanding of all measures to achieve ultimate result of treatment. The Aim of this study is to come up with the most suitable as well as the least failure percentage approach among the three techniques.

Color Stability of Different Resin Cement Systems: A Spectrophotometric Analysis

Research Article of International Journal of Dental Research and Reviews Color Stability of Different Resin Cement Systems: A Spectrophotometric Analysis Rayan M.

AlGhamdi4 1Clinical Specialist in Restorative Dentistry, Department of Restorative Dentistry, Ministry of Health Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 2Professor, Department of Restorative Dentistry, Faculty of Restorative Dentistry, Riyadh Elm University Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 3Clinical Specialist in Restorative Dentistry, Department of Restorative Dentistry, Ministry of Health Khamis Mushait, Saudi Arabia. 4Clinical Specialist in Restorative Dentistry, Department of Restorative Dentistry, Ministry of Health, Al Baha, Saudi Arabia. Aim: To evaluate the color stability of dual cure and light cure resin cements immersed in coffee solution at different time periods (baseline, 3 days and 1 week). Materials and methods: The color stability of three light curing (Variolink Esthetic (VLC); Rely X Veneer (RLC) and Mojo Veneer (MLC)) and three dual curing (Variolink Esthetic (VDC); Rely X Ultimate (RDC) and Breeze (MDC)) resin cements were tested. A total of sixty disks (10 mm diameter and 0.5 mm thickness) were prepared using a silicone mold (n=10). The specimens were subjected to baseline color measurement using Commission Internationale de l’Eclairege L*a*b* (CIELAB) color space system with the help of a spectrophotometer (LabScan XE, HunterLab, VA, USA). Following baseline color measurements, the specimens were immersed in a staining coffee solution. The color measurement was repeated after 3 days and 1 week of immersion in coffee solution. All the data collected were statistically analyzed using repeated measures of Analysis of variance (ANOVA, P<0.05). Result: After one week of storage in coffee solution, the mean color measurement scores in light cure group were found to be higher for RLC (1.22 ± 1.51) followed by VLC (0.85 ± 0.65) and NLC (0.68 ± 0.36) whereas in dual cure group, the mean ...

Marginal and internal fit of fixed prosthodontic constructions: a literature review

Research Article of International Journal of Dental Research and Reviews Gender and racial determination using mandibular canine index in Malaysian population Ugrappa Sridevi1, Ajay Jain2, Woon Suet Yen3, Wong Wei Yang3, Yap Zihau3, Yvonne Low3 1Senior Lecturer, Department of Oral Medicine & Radiology, Faculty of Dentistry, AIMST Dental Institute, AIMST University, Kedah, Malaysia. 2Associate Professor, Department of Prosthodontics, Faculty of Dentistry, AIMST Dental Institute, AIMST University, Kedah, Malaysia. 3Graduate student, Faculty of Dentistry, AIMST Dental Institute, AIMST University, Kedah, Malaysia. Gender discrimination is the important aspect of the human identification procedures that help in the establishment of biological profile from the skeletal and dental remains and also help in the facial reconstruction of unidentified bodies. Age, race, sex and stature determination along with dental evidence collection and facial reconstruction over the skeletal remnants are the important specialties of the forensic dentistry. The present study evaluates and compare the impact of mandibular canines in gender identification and also to determine any discrimination in the canine index among the different races (Malay, Chinese and Indian) of the Malaysian population.

Marginal and internal fit of fixed prosthodontic constructions: a literature review

Review Article of International Journal of Dental Research and Reviews Marginal and internal fit of fixed prosthodontic constructions: a literature review Artak G. Heboyan- Msc, DSD, PhD Researcher, Assistant Professor, Department of Prosthodontics, Yerevan State Medical University after M. Heratsi; Yerevan, Armenia Marginal fit of fixed dental prostheses is determined by the size of the gap between the margin of the restoration and finish line of the prepared tooth. The most important factors influencing marginal and internal fit of fixed dental prostheses are the material used, the type of finish line as well as peculiarities of various technique of restoration fabrication. The objective of the article is to review the literature about the marginal and internal fit of various fixed prosthetic constructions. A review of literature using Pubmed, Google Scholar, and Research Gate database was carried out and 73 articles mostly in English were selected. The keywords were “Computer-aided design, marginal gap, internal fit, marginal fit, and crown adaptation”. Clinically accepted boundary value of marginal gap is considered to be ≤100 μm. However, a number of factors such as milling machine, parameters of bur (diameter, sharpness), software, design preparation, smooth preparation margins and incorporation of rounded line angles on the tooth preparation, the type of finish line, material and fabrication method of the construction and type of impression method should be taken into consideration in order to achieve these results. The perfect marginal and internal fit are the guarantee of construction success and longevity. As a sizeable marginal opening concedes more plaque accumulation, gingival sulcular fluid flow and bone loss, following in microleakage, recurrent caries, periodontal disease and a decrease in the longevity of the prosthetics restorations. Currently used techniques of restoration manufacturing, including constructions manufactured by computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing system can provide clinically allowable marginal fit.
