Abstract

Aim

The aim of this study was to compare the postoperative sensitivity using two flowable composites in noncarious cervical lesions (NCCLs).

Materials and methods

A total of 136 teeth were randomly divided into two groups. In group I, 68 restorations were done using Filtek Z350 XT and in group II, 68 restorations were done using G-aenial GC Universal Flo. Sensitivity was evaluated using air blast, cold water, and cold ice stick. Visual analog scale (VAS) was used to record the sensitivity scores at baseline and at 2 days, 1 week, and 4 weeks after the treatment.

Results

When compared between Filtek and G-aenial groups in each test and at each time point, there was no significant difference in the reduction of postoperative sensitivity.

Conclusion

Within the limitations of this study, it can be concluded that there was no statistical difference in the reduction of postoperative sensitivity between group I (Filtek Z350XT) and group II (G-aenial universal flow) when used in NCCLs.

Clinical significance

There was no statistical difference in the reduction of postoperative sensitivity between two flowable composites when used in NCCLs.

Effects of Different Final Irrigating Solutions on Depth of Sealer Penetration into Dentinal Tubules: An in vitro Confocal Laser Microscopic Study

Abstract

Aim

To evaluate the maximum depth of sealer penetration into dentinal tubules at the coronal, middle, and apical third of root canals, following the use of different final irrigation solutions.

Materials and methods

Eighty freshly extracted mandibular premolars were selected for the study. After decoronation, instrumentation of samples was done using Protaper universal rotary file system till F4. During shaping and cleaning of root canal, 5.25% concentration of sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) was used for irrigation. The samples were then randomly divided into four groups (n = 20) depending on the final irrigating solution used. Group I: 17% aqueous ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (MA) (aq. EDTA); group II: 10% citric acid (CA); group III: 5% maleic acid; group IV: 5.25% conc. NaOCl. Passive ultrasonic irrigation (PUI) was used to activate each final irrigating solution. The samples were obturated using warm lateral condensation technique with guttapercha coated with AH plus sealer mixed with rhodamine B dye. Confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) examined the sealer penetration depth.

Results

The Kruskal-Wallis analysis results showed that there was a significant difference in the maximum depth of sealer penetration among all groups in all sections (p < 0.05). The coronal sections of the root canals in each group showed a significantly higher depth of sealer penetration than did the apical and middle sections (p < 0.05).

Conclusion

A combination of 17% aq. EDTA and PUI used for final irrigation proved to be more effective for sealer penetration into the dentinal tubules.

Clinical significance

Final irrigation protocol followed is of paramount importance in achieving complete disinfection within the root canal, and also the penetration of sealer serves as an indicator of the extent to which the smear layer was removed.

Abstract

Aim

The aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate the surface roughness of enamel after the application of different bleaching agents and to determine the effect of fluoride and bonding agent application on the roughness of bleached enamel.

Materials and methods

Forty-two dental slice polished enamel surfaces were randomly assigned to six groups. The surfaces of the slices were treated with 30% carbamide peroxide (CP) (groups I to III), or 38% hydrogen peroxide (HP) (groups IV to VI). Groups I and IV were only bleached. Topical fluoride was applied to the bleached surface of groups II and V. Groups III and VI were covered with a bonding agent. The surface roughness was analyzed with a profilometer. Data were subjected to analysis of one-way analysis of variance, Kruskal-Wallis, and Mann-Whitney U tests (p > 0.05).

Results

There were no statistically significant differences between the surface roughness of the untreated control specimens and the specimens treated with the bleaching materials, fluoride gel, and dental bonding agent (p > 0.05).

Conclusion

Bleaching treatment with 38% HP and 30% CP does not alter enamel surface roughness.

Clinical significance

The application of topical neutral sodium fluoride agents and dental bonding agents does not have any influence on enamel surface roughness.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation of Adult Rampant Caries with Pragmatic Approach

Abstract

Aim

The aim of this article is full mouth rehabilitation of adult rampant caries with a pragmatic approach.

Background

Dentistry has evolved from treating pain and oral diseases to improving esthetics and the overall look and appeal of an individual. Rampant caries are the nightmares of every individual, which are even more grossly accentuated in adults when compared with children. It can lead to emotional imbalance and the near death of a person's confidence. The prognosis of the treatment depends upon the age of the patient, extent of decay, cooperation of the patient, and the patient's motivation toward dental treatment. Herein, the pragmatic approach comes into play, by focusing on what is still left in the patient's arsenal. This simply means the esthetics of the patient's dentition has been improved from the original appearance, but may not be perceived as “dental perfection,” which can be accomplished through adhesive restorations.

Case report

A 38-year-old female patient reported to the department with rapid widespread decay in her upper and lower teeth for 2 years, after her second pregnancy and was mainly concerned with esthetics in her anterior dentition. The treatment included extraction of hopeless teeth irt #16, 26, 46, 15, 22 and root canal treatment reinforced with fiber post #11, 12, 13, 14, 21, 23, 31, 32, 33, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46 followed by composite restorations to enhance the esthetics, and the missing teeth were replaced with removable partial dentures.

Conclusion

The esthetic result achieved may not conform to the highest dental perfection, but represents an effective way of protecting the teeth from further tooth structure loss, while effecting an improvement in patient-perceived esthetics. This is the concept of pragmatic esthetics.

Clinical significance

Composite resin restorations represent an effective way of enhancing the esthetics and conservation of the remaining sound tooth structure for rampant caries.
