    ABSTRACT: An accurate facial moulage helps in understanding the orientation and proper position of the facial prosthesis relative to other facial landmarks even in the absence of the patient. To make impression for fabricating facial moulage previously described techniques in literature made use of elastomeric impression material, alginate, and dental plaster directly over the patient's face to obtain the moulage which have their own disadvantages. Taking these into consideration a novel clinical technique is described herein to fabricate an acrylic stock tray for making accurate impression and to support the impression material while setting and pouring.

    ABSTRACT: Surgical resection of lips is a relatively rare procedure. A defective lip may cause the patient to feel socially vulnerable as well as functionally handicapped and the defect will influence the patient’s self‑esteem and body image. Patients with labial defects also experience speech problems along with drying and crusting of the tissues in the area of defect. The lip and cheek provide a valve mechanism for speech. Rehabilitation of patients with this type of surgery creates numerous challenges for both the surgical and the maxillofacial prosthetic teams. The goals of prosthetic treatment include regaining favorable speech and restoration of esthetics. This case report presents a 65‑year‑old woman who was referred for restoration of her lost lip. This case paper describes a quick and simple method of positioning magnets with lip prosthesis attached to maxillary denture and thus esthetics and speech of the patient is restored. Use of retention magnets simplify the clinical and laboratory phase retains the denture and makes it stable and comfortable for the patient. The advent of magnets has enhanced the dental practitioner’s capabilities with a remarkably improved potential for increasing prosthesis stability and preserving tissue. Key Words: Esthetics, lip prosthesis, magnet, maxillofacial prostheses, partial denture

    ABSTRACT: A technique for restoring missing anterior teeth with associated extensive alveolar bone loss has been presented. This technique combines fixed and removable restorations where in removable prosthesis that restores the alveolar defect gets attached to the fixed prosthesis through precision attachment. The fixed prosthesis contributes to esthetics, function and also elevates patient’s self image. The removable prosthesis provides the much needed soft tissue support and also facilitates oral hygiene maintenance.

    ABSTRACT: Tooth replacement in the esthetic zone presents a myriad of challenges for the clinician. An ovate pontic accurately duplicates the emergence profile of the natural tooth it replaces in order to provide an esthetic, yet cleansable prosthesis. The accurate transfer of this sculpted tissue beneath the pontic of the provisional restoration is critical to provide the dental laboratory technician with the necessary information to fabricate a definitive restoration with an appropriate emergence profile. This article presents an innovative, simple and convenient impression technique for easy and accurate transfer of the tissue contours to the working cast, avoiding tissue collapse and tissue compression produced due to the impression material.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare the effect of varying layers of two commercially available die spacers on pre-cementation space of full coverage restorations in vitro and in vivo. Seven dies were prepared for each of 15 subjects. On three dies 1, 2, 3 layers of Pico-fit and on other three dies 1, 2, 3 layers of Yeti die spacers applied, wax pattern fabricated, invested and cast. Metal copings seated in vitro on die without die spacer and on prepared tooth of respective subject with fit-checker. Thickness of fit checker was measured using micrometer at mid-axial, mid-occlusal and near finish line locations that provided pre-cementation space. Result of ANOVA tests suggested significant difference among groups with varying layers. There was no significant difference between pre-cementation space achieved with Pico-fit and Yeti die spacers. The r values suggested positive correlation between the respective pair of in vivo and in vitro groups. (1) There was significant difference between pre-cementation space at mid-axial and mid-occlusal sites achieved with 1, 2 and 3 layers of die spacers except between 1 and 2 layers and 1 and 3 layers at mid-occlusal site. (2) Pre-cementation space achieved with Pico-fit and Yeti die spacers did not differ significantly for same location, layers and in vitro and in vivo. (3) Pre-cementation space achieved in vitro was analogous to pre-cementation space achieved in vivo for respective location, layers and die spacer.

    ABSTRACT: Treating edentulous mandibular fracture is difficult in elderly patients due to compromised medical condition of the patient and various contraindications for the surgical approach. The complication rate of infection or malunion is higher compared to fractures in younger, dentulous patients. For such conditions, ‘Gunning splint’ is a better option as it provides close reduction and stabilization of mandibular fracture, thus improving the prognosis.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was evaluation the effect of immersion in distilled water and inorganic artificial saliva on the shear bond strength of a heat-polymerized and an auto-polymerized silicone-based denture lining materials. The denture liners investigated were Molloplast-B (heat-polymerized), and Mollosil plus (auto-polymerized). The soft liner specimens were 10 × 10 × 2.5 mm and were processed between two poly(methylmethacrylate) plates. Thirty shear specimens for each type of test lining material were prepared. Specimens were divided equally into three groups for each test lining material: first group, specimens were tested after 48 h of preparation without immersion; second group, specimens were tested following immersion in distilled water at 37 °C for 12 months; and third group, specimens were tested following immersion in inorganic artificial saliva at 37 °C for 12 months. Shear bond strength was measured using an universal testing machine at a crosshead speed of 40 mm/min and failure mode (adhesive, cohesive and mixed) after debonding was assessed. Data were statistically analyzed with one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) (α = 0.05). ANOVA was followed by Bonferroni post hoc tests for pairwise comparisons. A significant difference in shear bond strength was detected between Molloplast-B and Mollosil plus following immersion in distilled water and artificial saliva. Molloplast-B demonstrated considerably higher shear strength than Mollosil plus after immersion. Shear strengths of the lining materials investigated reduced significantly after immersion in both solutions. Visual examination after separation revealed that the soft materials tested exhibited mostly adhesive failure. The effect of immersion in distilled water and inorganic artificial saliva on bond strength of test lining materials was perceivable; however, both of them had acceptable bond strength and might be proper for long-term use.

    ABSTRACT: Complete dentures fabricated for edentulous patients with resorbed ridges generally have compromised retention and stability. The use of intramucosal inserts in order to aid retention of a maxillary denture has been reported in the past. Zirconia is a tissue compatible biomaterial whose scope and application in dentistry is on the rise. This paper reports the fabrication of zirconia intramucosal inserts and the technique of its incorporation in the maxillary complete denture in order to enhance retention, stability and thereby oral function.

    ABSTRACT: Immediate placement and restoration of the implant is a widely used protocol, but loading of implants in the site which is periapically infected is still not very popular. Very few studies have been conducted and its still in debate. The conventional protocol of placing implant and waiting for it to osseointegrate is time consuming and compromises patients esthetics and psychological comfort. This report presents a case of immediate placement and restoration of implant in the region with periapical infection.

    ABSTRACT: Dental surveyor has been defined as an instrument used to determine the relative parallelism of two or more surfaces of the teeth or other parts of the cast of a dental arch. Therefore the primary purpose of surveying is to identify the modifications of oral structures that are necessary to fabricate a removable partial denture that will have a successful prognosis. It is the modification of tooth surfaces to accommodate placement of the component parts of the partial denture in their designated ideal position on abutment teeth that facilitates this prognosis. Routinely, during marking the survey line, the carbon marker breaks many a times, as it is somehow brittle in structure, even after holding it in the metal sheath. This unnecessarily lengthens the working time of the operator as well as laboratory personnel. In the above mentioned new technique, the plastic refill sheath holds the carbon marker easily and securely. This serves the marking on the cast without breakage of carbon marker, thus saves the operator’s time. The plastic refill sheath is easily available and economical.

    ABSTRACT: For the fabrication of a prosthesis, the Prosthodontist meticulously performs all the steps. The laboratory technician then make every effort/strives to perform the remaining lab procedures. However when the processed dentures are remounted on the articulator, some changes are seen. These changes may be divided into two categories: Pre-insertion and post-insertion changes, which deal with the physical properties of the materials involved (Parker, J Prosthet Dent 31:335–342, 1974). Split cast mounting is the method of mounting casts on the articulator. It is essentially a maxillary cast constructed in two parts with a horizontal division. The procedure allows for the verification of the accuracy of the initial mounting and the ease of removal and replacement of the cast. This provides a precise means of correcting the changes in occlusion occurring as a result of the processing technique (Nogueira et al., J Prosthet Dent 91:386–388, 2004). Instability of the split mounting has always been a problem to the Prosthodontist thereby limiting its use. There are various materials mentioned in the literature. The new technique by using Dowel pins and twill thread is very easy, cheaper and simple way to stabilize the split mounting. It is useful and easy in day to day laboratory procedures. The article presents different methods of split cast mounting and the new procedure using easily available materials in prosthetic laboratory.

    ABSTRACT: The main objective of the study was to recognize the effect of ceramic thickness and luting agent on the extent to which the restoration masks color variations that may be present in the underlying dental structure. Two pressable ceramics were used: Lithium disilicate reinforced (IPS e.max- Ivoclar Vivadent) and Leucite reinforced (Cergo- Dentsply). Fifteen ceramic discs were manufactured from each ceramic and divided into three groups, according to the thickness (0.5, 1, 1.5 mm). To simulate the color of a dark underlying dental structure, background discs, color C3, with 20 mm diameter, were made using resin composite. The ceramic discs with varying thicknesses were seated on the dark background of the resin composite with either resinous opaque cement or resinous cement. The color parameters were determined by the CIE Lab system of colors using a spectrophotometer and color differences (ΔE) were calculated. The results were then statistically analyzed, using ANOVA test and Tukey HSD test. The ΔE values of both ceramic systems were affected by both the luting agent and the ceramic thickness (P < 0.05). The use of an opaque luting agent resulted in an increase of the ΔE* values for all ceramics tested, regardless of the thickness. For the 1.5-mm thick veneers, higher values in the color parameters were obtained for both ceramic materials. The color masking ability of ceramics used for laminate veneers is significantly affected by the thickness of the ceramic and the shade of the luting agent used.

    ABSTRACT: Several treatments have been suggested to improve the retention of zirconia-based restorations luted with different cements. Resin cements are believed to improve crown retention under certain circumstances. The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of three cements with different mixing methods on the retention of CAD/CAM zirconia crowns. Thirty extracted human molars were randomly divided into three groups and prepared for all-ceramic crowns (6° taper, 4-mm height and a 1.2 mm rounded shoulder finish line). A zirconia crown (Tizian CAD/CAM) was fabricated for each tooth. The crowns were air-abraded using airborne particles, adjusted, and cemented to the corresponding tooth with one of the following cements: Panavia F2 (PAN group), RelyX Unicem (UNH group) or RelyX Unicem Aplicap (UNA group). After 3,000 rounds of thermal cycling, retention was measured using a specific retentive jig and a universal testing machine. The retention strength was measured by dividing the retention force by the surface area of each tooth. The means of the pull-out test results for each group were compared using analysis of variance and Tukey’s HSD test (α = 0.05). The mode of failure was examined using a stereomicroscope. The mean retention value was 6.45 (0.34) MPa for the UNA group, 4.99 MPa (0.47) for the UNH group, and 4.45 (0.39) for the PAN group; the differences among the three test groups were significant. A mixed failure was observed in 83.3 % of specimens, while no cohesive failure occurred in the crowns. Within the limitations of the present study, of the three tested cements, Relyx Unicem Aplicap cement was associated with the highest retention force for Tizian zirconia crowns.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the mechanical properties of provisional restorative materials after storage in dietary simulating solvents. A total of 120 specimens, 40 specimens each of Luxatemp Star, Revotek LC and DPI Self Cure were prepared. The specimens were divided into four groups with 10 specimens each and stored in dietary simulating solvents for 7 days at 37 °C as follows: Group I—Control, Group II—Artificial saliva, Group III—0.02 N Citric acid and Group IV—Heptane. After 7 days, flexural strength was obtained using universal testing machine at a crosshead speed of 5 mm/min and the fractured specimens were immediately subjected to the microhardness test knoop hardness number by using Knoop microhardness tester (10 gm/15 s). The data were analyzed for difference by use of Kruskal–Wallis and Dunn’s multiple comparison tests using a significance level of 0.05 to determine the mean differences. Significant effect was observed on the properties of provisional restorative materials after storage in dietary simulating solvents as compared to the control group (p ≤ 0.05). Bis-acryl resin based Luxatemp Star showed significantly superior flexural strength and hardness as compared to the Revotek LC and DPI Self Cure in dietary simulating solvents. Within the limitations of this study, it may be concluded that dietary simulating solvents showed significant influence on the mechanical properties of the provisional restorative materials.
