Craniofacial implants: what maxillofacial surgeon needs to understand

Review Article of International Journal of Dental Research and Reviews Craniofacial implants: what maxillofacial surgeon needs to understand Faris Almutairi Department of maxillofacial surgery and diagnostic sciences, college of dentistry, Qassim University, Qassim , Saudi Arabia Since discovery of the osseointegration of titanium in the 1950s, dental implants have been made of titanium the 1960s. In 1977, the first extraoral titanium implant was inserted for craniofacial rehabilitation aims. Craniofacial implants start to be popular for craniofacial reconstruction and rehabilitation. Craniofacial implants become as revaluation in rehabilitation fields, to day even large facial defect can be reconstructed via this surgical –prosthetic technique. The aim of this review is to explain and clarify the indications and techniques for such procedure. Key Words: craniofacial implants, facial defects, facial rehabilitation ...

CAD/CAM Technology Challenges in Prosthodontics

Review Article of International Journal of Dental Research and Reviews CAD/CAM Technology Challenges in Prosthodontics Naji Alharethi Department of Prosthodontics, College of Dentistry in Ar Rass, Qassim University, Ar Rass, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Computer-Aided-Design/Computer-Aided-Manufacture or in short CAD/CAM technology is a revolutionary method which was utilized in dentistry in order to achieve more efficient and precise work that not only reduce time but also produce more patient satisfaction on the short and long term. Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) can be done by utilizing a specially designed software and an intraoral scanners or laboratory scanners which can construct a three dimensional image of scanned mouth or impression. Computer-Aided-Manufacture (CAM) on the other hand, can be done by subtractive or additive manufacturing. Subtractive manufacturing is done either by spark erosion or by a milling machine. Additive manufacturing on the other hand is made by layering technique in a step by step vertical buildup of the object or restoration. This review illustrates the indications, advantages, and limitations of CAD/CAM technology in construction of different types of restorations and the possible future of this technology. Key Words: CAD/CAM, intra-oral scanners, laboratory scanners, subtractive manufacturing, additive manufacturing ...

Philadelphia, PA 19140 In this clinical case series, relative centrifugation force (RCF) and centrifugation time (CT) were reduced to produce the liquid form of platelet rich fibrin (i-PRF). The goal of this study is to histologically evaluate if the liquid form of PRF has a positive effect on vital bone formation in the grafted mandible using mineralized freeze-dried allogeneic bone. Materials and Methods: Forty-two patients completed immediate bone grafting after a non-restorable endodontically treated molar tooth was extracted in preparation for future implant surgery. Each bone graft was augmented with i-PRF. To process i-PRF, relative centrifugation force (RCF) was reduced from 2,700 RPM to 700 RPM (60g). Centrifugation time was reduced from 12 minutes to 3 minutes. After an average bone graft healing time of 8 to 12 weeks, bone core samples were obtained at the time of implant surgery for histological and histomorphometric analysis. Results: Forty-two bone cores were harvested at ...

Nasal Assessment among Patients with Cleft Lip and Palate

Review Article of International Journal of Dental Research and Reviews Nasal Assessment among Patients with Cleft Lip and Palate Ashwina S Banari1, Sanjeev Datana1, SS Agarwal1, SK Bhandari2 1Dept of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, Armed Forces Medical College, Pune 2Dept of Dental surgery & Oral Health Sciences, Armed Forces Medical College, Pune The cleft lip nasal deformity has been well described in respect to the facial aesthetics and plays an important role in social interactions. Rhinoplasty for patients with CLP is of immense challenge for the basic fact of the complexity in pathology, and also variation of growth potential of individual. The surgical correction for treatment of variation in nose morphology in patients with CLP is Rhinoplasty, which becomes a challenging task, keeping in mind the difficulty in evaluating the outcome. Many methods are available in the literature for nasal assessment evaluation in patients with CLP. However due to the pros and cons of different methods, aesthetic evaluation of the nose among these patients remain problematical. The purpose of this literature review was to overview the different nasal assessment methods in patients with CLP so as to analyse and identify the most objective method for such evaluation in order plan the treatment and to compare the aesthetic results. Keywords: Nasal Assessment, Cleft Lip and Palate ...
