Title: Need for malocclusion prevention in primary and mixed dentition

Dr. Belfer Marina has completed her DMD at the age of 25 years from Tel Aviv University (School of dentistry) and postdoctoral studies from Jerusalem University (Pediatric Dentistry) and Russian People’s Friendship University (Orthodontics). She is an assistant professor of the department of Paediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics in RUDN University and has a dental practice in Moscow. She has published more than 25 papers in reputed journals and has translated several dental textbooks and lecturers into Russian. Dr. Belfer delivered many lectures in child dentistry and orthodontics all over the world.



A recent study reported that around 90 percent of the children in primary and early mixed dentition present signs of a developing malocclusion. In many cases it is caused in early childhood by prolonged use of a pacifier or bottle/breast feeding, thumb/foreign object sucking, injuries that result in the misalignment of the jaw, poor dental care that results in improperly fitting dental restorations or untreated carious lesions, primary teeth extractions without space maintainers, mouth breathing, potentially caused by allergies or airway obstruction by enlarged adenoids/tonsils or bad habits. The consequences of malocclusion in children are deplorable, leading to improper alignment of the teeth, alteration in the appearance of the face, self-esteem problems, frequent biting of the inner cheeks or tongue, discomfort when chewing or biting, speech problems, including the development of a lisp, mouth breathing resulting in adenoid and long face formation, trauma and caries susceptibility. It is therefore important that attention be paid to the early prevention of malocclusion in primary and mixed dentition, thereby eliminating the future problems in the bud. The present report explores the need for malocclusion prevention, used in children to reduce the long-term complications of malocclusion.

Due to the close connection between the prevalence of malocclusions and dysfunctional problems, prevention strategies should be integrated into a national public health program all over the world. The habits mentioned above should be eliminated early by using the appropriate protocols in order to reduce the risk factors of malocclusion.

The modified Palatal Lever Arm System (PLAS) fixes the maxillary first molar via the PLAS from the mid-palatal miniscrews. It provides absolute anchorage to molars. In addition, tipping, rotation and any other side effects of the maxillary first molars are prevented. Moreover, it is possible to perform unique orthodontic tooth movements such as expand dental arch to unilateral side individually, which is considered to be difficult using conventional devices.

Case 1: The patient was a 25-years-old Japanese woman. Her chief complaint was upper teeth protrusion. The degree of overjet was 11.3 mm. Mandibular left second premolar was positioned lingually. Lateral cephalometric analysis showed a skeletal Class II jaw relationship. Maxillary both first premolars and mandibular left second premolar were extracted. Lingual multi-bracket appliances, mid-palatal miniscrews and modified PLAS were applied. The maxillary incisors were retracted with absolute anchorage of the maxillary both first molars. Proper overjet and overbite were achieved.

Case 2: The patient was a 20-years-old Japanese woman. Her chief complaint was crowding of upper teeth. The left molars showed crossbite, and the maxillary left lateral incisor was positioned lingually. The inter-canine Class II relationship was observed. Four first premolars were extracted. By activating the left arm of the PLAS to the buccal side, the left side of maxillary dental arch was expanded and crossbite of the left molars were corrected. The occlusal cusp-fossa relationship was established in the occlusion with Class I canine relationship

Intracanal medicaments are used as an antibacterial agent to eliminate residual bacteria in a root canal after instrumentation and irrigation, to render any remaining canal content inert, to dissolve tissue and to control persistent seepage of apical fluids into the root canal system. This study aims to compare the antimicrobial efficacy of 2% chlorhexidine gel, calcium hydroxide and aloe-vera extract as an intracanal medicament against E.faecalis.


Sixty extracted single-rooted human teeth were prepared with standard method. After contaminating the canals with E.Faecalis and incubated for seven days, the samples were divided into four groups (n=15). Normal saline was used as control group. The teeth in each group were treated with normal saline, calcium hydroxide, 2% chlorhexidine gel and aloe-vera extract. Microbial samples were obtained from the dentinal shavings of root and colony forming units (CFU) of E.faecalis were recorded after 24 hrs, 72 hrs and 7 days.


Mean CFU were lowest for Aloevera extract and chlorhexidine gel in 24 hrs whereas it increases in 48 hrs and 72 hrs for Aloevera extract. Mean CFU of calcium hydroxide was found to increase at 24 hrs and decreases at 72 hrs and 7 days.


Antimicrobial efficacy of aloe-vera extract was found to be comparable to 2% chlorhexidine gel only for shorter duration as mean CFU were lowest for both medicaments in 24hrs . Mean CFU of calcium hydroxide was found to increase at 24hrs and decreases at 72hrs and 7 days.

Silver diamine fluoride has caught everyone's attention. In fact, we're willing to bet your patients have begun asking you about it. Here's what you need to know about incorporating it into your dental practice

Countless patients would benefit from conservative treatment of non-symptomatic active carious lesions. It outperforms other anti caries medicaments in killing cariogenic bacteria in dentinal tubules. should not be.  It was being written about back as far as 1917!

Recently, silver diamine fluoride (SDF) emerged as a new chemotherapeutic option for caries management in the United States. SDF has long been used in Japan, Australia, and Argentina in caries prevention, and the value of silver ions to treat dental caries has been known for more than a century. SDF currently is designated by the US Food and Drug Administration as a treatment for dentinal hypersensitivity in adults. The application of SDF to treat caries is considered an off-label use, similar to fluoride varnish. As with other forms of off-label use, however, clinicians should use their professional judgment when choosing SDF for caries prevention.

This course will present insights on the use of SDF and how to implement it into your practice to benefit the children

The return to the inter-arch ideal is an obligation and a prerequisite for the new surgical skeletal assembly. But it is rather difficult to preview either the possible orthodontic progress or the skeletal improvements that happens in 3D on two moving elements which themselves depend on a joint of which we know the delicacy.
In this context the subject that concerns us is the management of the assembly of the surgical puzzle and its stability postoperatively especially when a large expansion has been produced.
I will expose a protocol to achieve a functional occlusion and ideal postoperative through the use of a very precise interface provided with micrometric adjustment called ORTHOGNTOR and complementing admirably the Gallety articulator.

Implant placement into healed sites has today lost its dominance, since the understanding of dimensional ridge alterations post extraction revealed that this approach frequently complicates therapy and a healing period of at least 6 months post extraction prior to implant placement is not really attractive to patients in daily practice.

During this lecture we will discuss the following topics:

  • Ridge alterations post extraction.
  • Indications and case presentations for Immediate implant placement.
  • Indications and case presentations for early implant placement
  • Indications and case presentations for late implant placement
  • Bone grafts, barrier membranes, acellular dermal matrix and connective tissue grafts used for all of the situations listed above.

NIMA SABZCHAMANARA has completed his dental study from National Medical University Kiev Ukraine. He is the student of first year of Residency program, in the Department for Therapeutic dentistry. He has published only one abstract in a dental journal.



Previous research on periodontal structure and function has shown a significant relationship between periodontal tissue and teeth. This study assessed dentist's beliefs about the relative efficacy of the health of periodontal tissue. A total of 505 patients in general pracrice were asked to respond to a list of 25 obligatory nourishment for a child while going to have the first teeth, for its effectiveness in dealing with patient's periodontal health especially include chewing hard food. They were also asked to select the three most effective nutrition for periodontal tissue. The imdices of patient perceived importance of the periodontal health were derived and each compared with actual effectiveness as determined from a sample of 250 patients.

Although the majority of patient's rated 18 of 25 nutrition as being very effective, there was no significant association between patient perceived nourishment effectiveness and actual effectiveness. The implications for patient training are discussed.

Her research mainly focus on the interaction between oral and medical diseases.



Introduction: The most prevalent periodontal disease among children is gingivitis, and it usually becomes more severe in adolescence. A number of intervention studies suggested that resolution of periodontal inflammation can improve metabolic control in patients diagnosed with diabetes mellitus.  Aim: to assess the effect of non-surgical periodontal therapy on glycemic control of children diagnosed with diabetes mellitus. Method: Twenty-eight children diagnosed with diabetes mellitus were recruited with established diagnosis diabetes for at least 1 year. Informed consent and child assent form were obtained from children and parents prior to enrolment. The dental examination for the participants was performed on the same week directly following their annual medical assessment. All patients had their glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c%) test one week prior to their annual medical and dental visit and 3 months following non-surgical periodontal therapy. All patients received a comprehensive periodontal examination The periodontal assessment included clinical attachment loss, bleeding on probing, plaque score, plaque index and gingival index. All patients were referred for non-surgical periodontal therapy, which included oral hygiene instruction and motivation followed by supra-gingival and subgingival scaling using ultrasonic and hand instruments. Statistical Analysis: Data were entered and analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Science software (SPSS, Chicago, USA), version 18. Statistical analysis of clinical findings was performed to detect differences between the two groups in term of periodontal findings and HbA1c%. Binary logistic regression analysis was performed in order to examine which factors were significant in multivariate analysis after adjusting for confounding between effects. The regression model used the dependent variable ‘Improved glycemic control’, and the independent variables entered in the model were plaque index, gingival index, bleeding %, plaque Statistical significance was set at p < 0.05. Result: A total of 28 children. The mean age of the participants was 13.3±1.92 years. The study participants were divided into two groups; Compliant group (received dental scaling) and non-complaints group (received oral hygiene instructions only). No statistical difference was found between compliant and non-compliant group in age, gender distribution, oral hygiene practice and the level of diabetes control. There was a significant difference between compliant and non-compliant group in term of improvement of HBa1c before and after periodontal therapy.  Mean gingival index was the only significant variable associated with improved glycemic control level. Conclusion, this study has demonstrated that non-surgical mechanical periodontal therapy can improve HbA1c% control. The result of this study confirmed that children with diabetes mellitus who are compliant to dental care and have routine professional scaling may have better metabolic control compared to diabetic children who are erratic with dental care.
