Effect of Absorbable Collagen matrix on the Over Extrusion of MTA as an Apical Plug Using 3D Printed Tooth Replicas: A Comparative in Vitro Study

Abstract : The treatment of immature necrotic teeth is challenging in terms of achieving good apical seals, apexification with MTA is a common treatment option many in cases. Despite the good biocompatibility of MTA and its ability to form a calcified apical barrier, its extrusion to the periapical tissues could reduce the success rates of the treatment. Several materials were used as internal matrix to prevent over extrusion of MTA to obtain better results. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate absorbab


Family Caregiver Burden of Cancer Patients Undergoing Radiotherapy In Bali

Abstract : Cancer patients who are undergoing radiotherapy often have many symptoms either due to illness and the effects of radiotherapy so that it can result in family caregiver burden. This study aims to determine the overview of family caregiver burden for cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy. A descriptive quantitative study conducted on family caregivers at the Radiotherapy Polyclinic of Prof. Dr. I.G.N.G Ngoerah Hospital in December 2022. Data were collected using sociodemographic instruments and


Antioxidant Activity and Chlorophyl Content of Mistletoes (Dendrophthoe pentandra and Scurulla atropurpurea) Attached to Some Types of Host Plants

Abstract : Mistletoes are semi-parasitic plants that can kill the plants they host. Mistletoe has been used for generations in traditional medicine, one of which is as an anticancer agent. This study aims to examine the antioxidant activity and chlorophyll content of Dendrophthoe pentandra and Scurulla atropurpurea. The results showed that the highest antioxidant activity was found in the mistletoe's leaves, flowers, and broad stems because they contain high levels of flavonoids. The highest total chloroph


Efficacy of XP-3D rotary files in retreatment of root canal filled with two types of Bioceramic sealers: In Vitro Study

Abstract : The new types of sealer pastes such as Bioceramic increased the difficulty of retreatment and complete removal of root canal filling materials, Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of XP-3D R files in removing two types of sealer pastes (Bioceramic Hi-flow and Bioceramic sealer). The study sample consisted of 30 single-rooted and single-canal mandibular premolars, the root canals were prepared to F2 size and divided into two equal groups: Group 1 (n=15): the root canals were


Evaluation of Bone Dimension Alterations using socket seal surgery technique for socket preservation (clinical study)

Abstract : Many methods preserve the dimensions of hard and soft tissues, these methods include the use of bio-materials, bone grafts, and membranes, these methods aim to ensure a sufficient volume of soft and hard tissues, which preserve the cosmetic and functional aspects in fixed and over implants prostheses. This study aims to compare socket seal surgery and atraumatic extraction in causing bone tissue dimension changes. The sample of the study included 24 extracted teeth and was divided into two group


Effectiveness of Haloperidol Compared with Midazolam in Managing Uncooperative Children during Dental Treatment: A Randomized Clinical Trial

Abstract : This study aimed to investigate haloperidol sedative properties compared with midazolam in the management uncooperative children during dental treatment. This study was designed as a randomized clinical study based on evaluating the efficacy and safety of two sedative methods. The sedative methods efficacy and safety were evaluated using behavioral and vital signs assessments during pulpotomy on primary molars. 60 Healthy non-cooperative children, aged 3-6 years, were divided into two equal grou


The Ability of MTA Sealers in Increasing the Fracture Resistance of Endodontically Retreated Teeth: In Vitro Study

Abstract : Vertical root fractures (VRF) are considered one of the most dangerous complications that might occur, due to the difficulty in its diagnosis and prognosis. These fractures happen more frequently, particularly after endodontic treatment. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the ability of MTA-based sealers in increasing the fracture resistance of endodontically retreated teeth. The study sample consisted of 45 single-rooted and single-canal premolars. All teeth were decoronated, and instrumen


Evaluation of the root resorption and periodontal status during the en-masse retraction of the upper anterior teeth stimulated by low-intensity electrical current: a preliminary clinical report

Abstract : Many methods have been explored to reduce the orthodontic treatment time by speeding up the rate of tooth movement. One of them was the low-intensity electrical stimulation (LIES). This preliminary report aimed to investigate the effects Of LIES on root resorption and periodontal status during the en-masse retraction of the upper anterior teeth. This single-group prospective pilot interventional study was conducted at the Department of Orthodontics, Faculty of Dentistry, Damascus University, bet


The ability of negative pressure irrigation to reduce the count of Enterococcus faecalis bacteria in minimally, prepared root canals: in vitro study

Abstract : This study aimed to evaluate the ability of negative pressure irrigation technique (NPI) compared to the positive pressure irrigation technique (PPI) in eradication of Enterococcus faecalis inside infected and minimally prepared root canals. 40 extracted premolars were decoronated, instrumented up to size #20 with a taper of 0.04 (minimal preparation), autoclaved and inoculated with Enterococcus faecalis for 15 days, divided into two equal groups according to the irrigation method used: Group 1


Evaluation of Bone Dimension Alterations Using rhBMP-2 in Socket Preservation with Socket Seal Surgery Technique

Abstract : Dental implant treatment is a favored option for many patients due to its comfort. However, challenges arise, especially when there's insufficient bone to support the implant. This is particularly problematic in the anterior region, where bone resorption can result in both cosmetic and functional impairments. In this study, 24 extracted tooth sockets were examined, categorized into two groups. The first group underwent natural healing, while the second was treated with Socket Seal Surgery using
