    ABSTRACT: To investigate the normal occlusal force distribution and the characteristics of the occlusion time at different occlusion position using T-Scan III occlusal analysis system. Fifty-three volunteers with normal occlusion, including 29 males and 24 females, were included in this study. The average age was (25.9 ± 2.1) years old. T-Scan III occlusal analysis system was used to measure the occlusal force distribution and the time character of normal occlusion at intercuspal position, protrusive position, and lateral excursive position. At intercuspal position the left and right side molar teeth took the most part of force percentage, followed by (13.3 ± 4.3)%, (13.6 ± 5.4)%, (15.7 ± 7.1)%, (18.7 ± 7.5)% (6, 6, 7, 7); and 7654, 4567 took (61.3 ± 12.4)% force percentage; and the left and right sides took the respective percentages of (46.4 ± 7.0)%, (53.6 ± 7.0)%, the left side was significantly less than the right side(P < 0.05). At the protrusion position the region ( 21, 12) commitment to take the percentage of (85.1 ± 25.5)%. At left and right lateral position, 28% (13/46) and 30%(14/46) were cuspid-protected occlusion, and 33%(15/46) and 44%(20/46) were group fuctional occlusion, and 39%(18/46) and 26%(12/46) were multiple-protected occlusion. The average occlusion time was (0.34 ± 0.11) s, and disclusion time was (1.00 ± 0.39) s. At intercuspal position the region from first premolar to second molar teeth were the occlusal force centers, and the second molar is the most;.the force concentrated in the area ( 21, 12) at the protrusion position. The lateral occlusal pattern is multiformity.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the outcomes of immediate post-extraction implant and immediate function according to All-on-4 immediate concept in edentulous patients. The study included 46 patients with hopeless teeth. A total of 254 implants were immediately inserted after extraction and 56 fixed complete-arch all-acrylic prostheses finished and functioned on the day of extraction from June 2008 to March 2012 in Peking University School of Stomatology. At time of abutments connection, a panoramic radiograph was taken, and radiographic assessment of the marginal bone level was performed in every 6 months. Marginal bone level, integrity of the restoration, survival of the implants and degree of satisfaction of the patients were evaluated. A total of 254 implants were immediate loading. Thirteen implants were lost 6 - 8 weeks after immediate loading and the survival rate of 94.9% (241/254). The marginal bone absorption was (0.7 ± 0.3) mm on average. All patients were satisfied with the clinical results. Immediate post-extraction implant and immediate function technique can be a predictable technique. Further study is needed to determine the long-term results of the technology.

    ABSTRACT: Speech adaptation after oral rehabilitation is based on a complex interaction of articulatory and myofunctional factors. The knowledge of basic phonetic principles may help clinicians identify phonetic problems associated with prosthodontic treatment. The purpose of this article is to illustrate basic phonetic terminology, standard Chinese (Putonghua) phonetics, and the anatomic structures relevant for dentistry. In cooperation with a Chinese linguistic specialist, Chinese articulators were selected and are described and compared with English phonetics. Established test words and sentences aid the identification of mispronounced articulators and their related dental structures. The pronunciation of most consonants and vowels in standard Chinese is similar to English, but some of them, such as the retropalatals (/zh/[tʂ], /ch/[thʂ], /sh/[ʂ]), have notable differences. Palatal consonants (/j/[tɕ], /q/[tɕh], /x/[ɕ]) are unique to the Chinese phonetic system and are not found in English phonetics. The comprehension of the basic anatomic regions involved in Chinese phonetics may help prosthodontists treat patients whose native language is standard Chinese.

    ABSTRACT: Esthetic considerations have become increasingly important in dental therapy. Evaluation of the soft tissue display during enjoyment smiling can provide useful information for esthetic oral rehabilitation. To date, no study has quantified the amount and frequency of soft tissue display in the area of the papilla. Photographic examination of 66 fully dentate patients with a mean age of 28.5 years was performed during enjoyment smiling. Digital processing and measurement of the tooth, gingival, and papillary display revealed that over 90% of subjects displayed papillae in the anterior teeth and first premolars during enjoyment smiling regardless of sex. The frequency of display in descending order consisted of maxillary lateral incisors (96%), central incisors (94%), canines (94%), first premolars (91%), second premolars (85%), and first molars (39%). The mean papillary display was 3.4 mm (range, 0.0 to 10.0 mm). There was no significant difference in the amount of papillary display between the sexes for anterior teeth, premolars, or first molars (P = .97, P = .79, and P = .48, respectively).

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the influence of soft tissue aesthetic outcomes following application of adhensive fixed partial denture and implant supported temporary restoration in maxillary single tooth implant procedure. Discuss the feasibility and details of the shaping the soft tissue by combine adhensive fixed partial denture and implant-supported temporary restoration. The study included 29 patients(Male: 17, Female: 12) with hopeless maxillary single tooth from Sept. 2008 to Dec. 2010. All patients received tooth extraction and implant treatment in department of oral implantology, Peking University School and hospital of Stomatology. The adhesive fixed partial denture as a provisional restoration was used to support the soft tissue of the tooth extraction socket after tooth extraction. The average time of patient wearing adhensive fixed partial denture was 3.7 months. The implant supported temporary restoration was delivered to shape the soft tissue after implant placement. The average time of implant supported provisional restoration using was 8.3 months. Soft tissue esthetic condition was evaluated through 4 main index reference pink esthetic score (PES) before tooth extraction and at the time of the final restoration. Clinical observe items also included the survival rate of fixed partial denture and rate of re-adhesive, integrity of temporary restoration and degree of satisfaction of the patients. The control group included 29 cases with removable denture or without temporary restoration. The base line differences between control group and experiment group were not statistically significant. The survival rate of both the adhensive partial denture and implant-supported provisional restoration was 100%. The re-adhesive rate of adhesive partial denture was 16.2% during follow-up period. The PES at the time of final restoration were significant different between two groups by t test (7.48±0.51 vs. 5.69±0.71, P<0.000 1). Patients were satisfied with the clinical results. This study indicates that fixed partial restoration and implant-supported provisional restoration could be used to support and to shape the soft tissue contour and to improve the aesthetic effects.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of the placing depth of the implants with platform switching (Ankylos) on the marginal bone remodeling, by means of radiological observation. 111 Ankylos implants in the posterior mandible from 46 patients (20 male and 27 female) were enrolled in this study. Followed up by 58.1 months on average (from 36 to 85), 222 mesial and distal sites of these implants were evaluated by means of measuring the level of the marginal bone (LMB) on the panoramic radiograph. Among these 111 successfully functional loaded implants, there were no significant differences with the marginal bone absorption values, no matter the implants were placed below, at, or above the bone level (P>0.05). Concerning the stabilization of the marginal bone, when placed below the bone level, 67.7% of the implant sites had their LMBs stabilized at or above the implant platform, and 23.3% absorbed vertically, respectively 19.7% and 80.3% when placed at the bone level, with significant difference (P<0.001). Based on a long-term (over 3 years) observation, the implants placed below, as compared to at or above, the alveolar crest level, might have more chance to keep the marginal bone stabilized at or above the implant platform.

    ABSTRACT: Due to global migration, clinicians often see patients with different ethnic backgrounds. Planning esthetic prosthodontic treatment for patients with different ethnicities can be a challenge. The aim of this study is to analyze the smile features of Chinese individuals. Sixty-two Han-Chinese subjects with a mean age of 28.5 years were enrolled and photographed. Standardized digital photographs were made to measure the height of displayed maxillary gingivae, papillae, and teeth during an enjoyment smile. The data were then compared with the data acquired from Caucasians in a previous study. Statistical analysis was performed using the Mann-Whitney test and two-factorial nonparametric analysis. The mean display of the central incisors was 10 mm, with no significant difference between sexes (P = .74). The mean amount of display of the molars and premolars was significantly lower in Chinese (P < .001) than in Caucasians. The mean displayed gingiva in all subjects (n = 62) was 1.3 mm (0 to 8 mm). There was no significant difference between sexes (P > .05), but there was a significantly lower display of gingiva at the molars in Chinese (P < .001). Of all the subjects, 16.1% (n = 10) displayed gingivae from the central incisor to the first molar with a mean gingival height of 2.8 mm. The subjects showed a mean papilla height of 3.4 mm (0 to 11.6 mm) with no significant difference between sexes (P > .05). Again, a significantly lower display of papilla at the molar (P < .001) was found in Chinese. Of all subjects, 43.5% (n = 27) of all subjects showed papilla from the central incisor to the first molar. The mean papilla height of these subjects was 3.9 mm. All subjects displayed at least one papilla. The results indicate that pink esthetics is a prime factor for both Chinese men and women in the esthetic restoration from the central incisors to the premolars.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the preliminary clinical results of prosthetic gingival reconstruction in vertical bone defect patients. The study included 31 partial or edentulous patients (male 22, female 9) with 152 implants supporting fixed prostheses from February 2002 to January 2011 in Peking University School and Hospital of Stomatology. The implant-supported fixed prostheses with artificial gingival material to compensate for vertical defect were delivery after implant healing period. At time of prostheses delivery, a panoramic radiograph was taken. The results were evaluated according to California Dental Association by two prosthodontists. Clinical observation included survival of the implants, integrity of the restoration, complication of prosthesis and degree of satisfaction of the patients. A total of 152 implants supported fixed prostheses with artificial gingival materials to compensate vertical bone defect were delivered. No implants lost, and the survival rate was 100% during the follow-up period. The sore of acceptance of prosthesis was 96.8%. All patients were satisfied with the clinical results. The artificial gingival reconstruction technique is feasible for vertical bone defect patients.

    ABSTRACT: To analyze smile features in maximum lip-dynamic in Chinese. Sixty-two Han-Chinese, travelling in Germany, with a mean age of 28.5 years were enrolled and photographed. Standardized digital photos were made to measure the height of displayed maxillary gingiva, papilla and tooth during an enjoyment smile. Statistical analysis was performed using Mann-Whitney-U Test and non-parametric analysis. The mean height of tooth display for the central incisors was 10 mm, with no significant difference between the gender (P > 0.05). The mean height of gingival display was 1.3 mm and the mean papilla height was 3.4 mm. There was no significant difference between the genders (P > 0.05). 31% (19/62) of the subjects belonged to high smile line type, 50% (31/62) to medium smile line type and 19% (12/62) to low smile line type. The red esthetics is a paramount factor for Chinese men and women in the esthetic restoration. 81% of the Chinese studied showed various degree of gingival exposure from central incisor to the premolars, which defined the esthetic area for Chinese people. Papilla is a critical parameter for esthetic evaluation and treatment design. The ratio of high smile line in Chinese may be higher than that in Caucasian.

    ABSTRACT: The potential effect of Choukroun's platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) in combination with allograft on promoting bone regeneration has been discussed in previous publications. This study aims to evaluate an influence of PRF on bone regeneration in sinus augmentation in combination with a xenograft, deproteinised bovine bone. Eleven sinuses from 10 patients with posterior maxillary bone atrophy were selected for the study. As a test group, six sinus floor elevations were grafted with a Bio-Oss and PRF mixture, and as control group, five sinuses were treated with Bio-Oss alone. Clinical and radiographic examinations were performed pre- and postoperatively. After 6 months of sinus augmentation, bone biopsies were obtained from the grafted posterior maxilla, and un-decalcified ground sections were prepared. Bone characteristics were evaluated using histological observation and histomorphometric analyses. No adverse effect was observed in any case within the follow-up period of 6 months after sinus augmentation. Histological observation showed similar morphological characteristics for both the PRF and control groups. The percentage of new bone formation in the PRF group was about 1.4 times of that in control (18.35%±5.62% vs. 12.95%±5.33%), while the percentage of residual bone substitute in the control group was about 1.5 times higher as that in the PRF group (28.54%±12.01% vs. 19.16%±6.89%). The percentage of contact length between newly formed bone and bone substitute in the PRF group was 21.45%±14.57% vs. 18.57%±5.39% in the control. No significant statistical differences between the two groups were found in these observed parameters. Our preliminary result demonstrated neither an advantage nor disadvantage of the application of PRF in combination with deproteinised bovine bone mineral in sinus augmentation after a healing period of 6 months.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the treatment plan, clinical outcome and related problems in patients with congenital missing teeth. From November 2000 to February 2009, thirty seven patients with congenital missing teeth underwent thorough diagnostic workup, treatment planning and an interdisciplinary approach to ensure optimal treatment in Department of Implant Dentistry, Peking University, School and Hospital of Stomatology. A standard follow-up protocol was conducted for all the patients. The enrolled cases in this study were classified in to 3 types: single tooth missing, multiple teeth missing and edentulous. Among them single tooth missing was found in 21 cases, multiple teeth missing was found in 12 cases and 4 cases were edentulous. 120 implants were placed and restored in 37 patients with the mean follow-up 39.3 months (10-109 months) after prosthetic functioning. Two implants lost after function about 6 months and the remaining implants functioned well until the last review. No adverse complications such as pain and nerve trauma was observed and the mean bone resorption was 1.91 mm. An interdisciplinary approach ensures optimal treatment for patients with congenital missing teeth. Implant restorations provide an alternative way with predictable clinical results.

    ABSTRACT: To describe a multidisciplinary approach to ensure optimal treatment and timing of treatment for these patients. Ten patients with congenital missing teeth were treated with dental implants with a multidisciplinary approach, including orthodontics, prosthodontics, and/or orthognathic surgery, from 1997 to 2006 in the Department of Implant Dentistry, Peking University, Hospital of Stomatology. All patients were followed up over five years. Clinical and radiographic examinations were conducted for all the patients. A thorough diagnostic workup was used and the outline of the treatment planning was given from the prosthodontic point of view. A total of 31 implants were placed and restored for the 10 patients involved. Followup averaged 108.4 months (61-155 months) after implant prosthetic functioning. With the multidisciplinary approach, a satisfactory treatment for these patients was acquired, with follow-up for more than 5 years. The peri-implant marginal bone level was stable with bone resorption averaged 1.97 mm. Peri-implantitis was found in one patient with two implants and effectively treated with local anti-infection. Ceramic chips were observed in two cases and the crowns were re-fabricated. Implant restoration with an interdisciplinary approach provides an alternative way with predictable clinical results for patients with congenitally missing teeth.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the long-term results of short implants and assess its clinical importance. A total of 77 short implants were consecutively placed in 43 patients from August 1998 to August 2004. The clinical data was reviewed and the crown-implant ratio (C/I) was measured. Twenty-nine short implants in 15 patients were loaded for more than 5 years and the marginal bone height around implant measured. The implant success and survival ratio were evaluzted according to Zarb's successful criteria and Wheeler's survival criteria. The mean follow-up time was 5.4 years (36 ∼ 99 months). Among these 77 short implants, 74 implants were fixed restoration, which mean C/I was (1.08 ± 0.21), 3 implants were removable restoration. Of 29 short implants which were loaded for more than 5 years, the mesial bone height at the times immediately after inserting implant, before second stage surgery, loading for less than 3 years and loading for more than 5 years was (0.59 ± 0.66), (0.64 ± 0.59), (-0.05 ± 1.11), (-0.37 ± 1.29) mm; and the distal bone height was (0.62 ± 0.77), (0.60 ± 0.86), (-0.26 ± 1.12), (-0.23 ± 1.59) mm. The 5 year's survival rate and success rate were 97% and 93% respectively. The success and survival rate of short dental implant under function were comparable to those reported for normal implants. By using the short implant, the patients can avoid the graft operation, alleviate sufferings, shorten the treatment period and reduce the cost. Therefore, it has a high value in clinical application.

    ABSTRACT: Dome-shaped radiopacities on the floor of the maxillary sinus are commonly interpreted as a sinus cyst on radiographs during dental implant planning. They might present an obstacle in sinus grafting, leading to bone graft failure or implant loss later. The therapeutic approaches to the removal of such cystic lesions and the following sinus augmentation are still controversial. The purpose of this article is to present a modified technique that can be used for predictable removal of a maxillary sinus cyst and sinus augmentation after a shortened healing period in patients with maxillary sinus pseudocysts. A total of 11 patients with a mean age of 43.7 years with a radiographic dome-shaped opacity in the posterior maxilla sinus were included in this study. A lateral sinus window (with a diameter of about 5 mm) was prepared, and removal of the cyst was performed with grasping forceps. Three months after removal of the cyst, a conventional sinus augmentation with xenogeneic material was undertaken. Dental implants were placed 6 months later. Panoramic radiography and coronal/axial computed tomography were performed to diagnose the sinus lesion preoperatively and for follow-up. A total of 11 pseudocysts were removed from the sinuses of 11 patients under local anesthesia. Histologic evaluation showed antral pseudocysts in all specimens. A soft tissue scar was evident after 3 months of healing at the time of sinus augmentation. No sinus membrane perforation was seen or occurred during the sinus augmentation. A total of 17 implants were placed and restored prosthetically. No clinical complications were observed. The patients were followed up for a mean of 29.2 months (range, 17-43 months) after prosthetic loading, during which no implants were lost and no recurrence of the antral pseudocyst was observed. The described modified surgical technique allows the minimally invasive removal of the antral pseudocyst and histologic verification of the diagnosis without compromising the nasoantral entrance as well as the anatomy of the sinus for future sinus augmentations. It can be performed under local anesthesia without endoscopic equipment while shortening the treatment period.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the preliminary clinical results of application of All-on-4 immediate function in edentulous patients. Twenty nine edentulous patients with 140 immediately loaded implants supporting fixed complete-arch all-acrylic prostheses from April 2008 to October 2009 in Peking University School of Stomatology were included. The implant-supported fixed complete-arch all-acrylic prostheses were delivery on the operation day. At time of abutments connection, a panoramic radiograph was taken. And radiographic assessment of the marginal bone level was performed in every 2 months. Clinical observe items included marginal bone level, integrity of the restoration, survival of the implants and degree of satisfaction of the patients. A total of 140 implants were immediate loading. Eight implants were lost during 6 - 8 weeks after immediate loading, giving survival rate of 94.3%. The marginal bone level was (0.8 ± 0.4) mm. The All patients were satisfied with the clinical results. The data and the experience described in this study indicate that All-on-four immediate function technique can be a predictable technique for edentulous patients. Further study is needed to determine the long-term result of the technology.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the clinical results of application of non-invasive porcelain veneer to reduce the black triangle of implant and adjacent teeth and to improve the aesthetic effect in the maxillary anterior area. The study included 10 patients (Male: 4, Female: 6; average age: 41.5) accessioned during May 2007 to August 2009 in Peking University School of Stomatology. The provisional restorations were delivery on implant after 3-6 months healing period of the implant. The non-invasive porcelain veneers were used in the round tip adjacent teeth with gingival recession in the indicated patients. Main measured parameters on the model included horizontal distance and vertical distance. The Horizontal distance refers to the black triangle bottom which is from adjacent surface of the natural teeth to the implant restoration at the gingival level. The vertical distance is from mid-point of the triangle bottom to the contact point. Clinical observed items included bleeding index (BI), integrity of porcelain veneer and degree of satisfaction of the patients. A total of 14 adjacent natural teeth in 10 patients were cemented with porcelain veneer. No porcelain veneer was lost or fracture during follow-up period (range 6 to 27 months, mean of 10.4 months). Mean bleeding index 0-1. The horizontal distance was reduced from (3.1 + or - 0.8) mm before restoration to (1.1 + or - 0.5) mm after restoration. Vertical distance from (5.3 + or - 1.1) mm to (2.9 + or - 0.7) mm. All patients were satisfied with the clinical result. The data and the experience described in this study indicate that improvement of aesthetic effects by using no-invasive porcelain veneer techniques can be a predictable technique for patients with periodontal disease. Further study is needed to determine the long-term result of the technique.
