Alternative to Avoid Tooth Discoloration after Regenerative Endodontic Procedure: A Systematic Review.

Braz Dent J 2018 Sep-Oct;29(5):409-418

Department of Dentistry, UFSC - Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, Florianópolis, SC, Brazil.

This systematic review aimed to evaluate whether alternative materials to conventional triple antibiotic paste (TAP - metronidazole, ciprofloxacin, and minocycline) and grey mineral trioxide aggregate (GMTA) could avoid tooth discoloration in teeth submitted to Regenerative Endodontic Procedure (REP). It was also investigated if dental bleaching is able to reverse the color of darkened teeth due to REP. The search was conducted in four databases (Medline via PubMed, Scopus, ISI Web of Science and BVS - Virtual health library), following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses. The retrieved papers were uploaded in the software EndNoteTM and two reviewers independently selected the studies and extracted the data. Only studies in humans (case reports, case series, clinical trials) were included in the review. From 1,122 potentially eligible studies, 83 were selected for full-text analysis, and 38 were included in the review. The included studies were mainly case reports (76.3 %). The studies described a total of 189 teeth submitted to REP. From these, about 54% of teeth presented some degree of discoloration. Most teeth presenting color alteration were treated with TAP, especially when combined with GMTA. Only three studies performed dental bleaching to restore the color of teeth and neither bleaching technique was able to restore the original color of the crowns. The use of alternative materials to TAP and GMTA, such as double antibiotic paste or Ca(OH)2 pastes and white mineral trioxide aggregate or BiodentineTM, reduces the occurrence of tooth discoloration.

Expression of Cancer Stem Cell Biomarkers in Human Head and Neck Carcinomas: a Systematic Review.

Stem Cell Rev Rep 2018 Dec;14(6):769-784

Department of Morphological Sciences, Health Sciences Center, Federal University of Santa Catarina, Trindade, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil.

Malignant neoplasms may be composed of several cell groups, including cancer stem cells (CSC). These cells have been related with the capacity of metastasis, relapse and resistance to multiple drugs during chemotherapy. This study aims to identify CSC biomarkers and their expression pattern in human head and neck carcinomas. This study was conducted following the PRISMA checklist. The search for articles was carried out in five databases (PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science, Lilacs and Scielo). The articles found were selected in two phases: 1) reading the titles and / or abstract and 2) reading the full text. At the end, the selected articles were evaluated by QUADAS-2. Most studies evaluated oral neoplastic tissues and, as a control, samples of normal local mucosa. All studies performed immunohistochemistry as a method of immunolocalization and some also applied immunofluorescence. The most commonly used biomarker was CD44. However, other such as Sox2, Oct4, Nestin, Nanog, BMI1, ALDH1, CD133 and CD166 were also found. Several biomarkers were (ALDH1, Sox2, Oct4, ABCB5, AGR2 and TAZ) correlated with clinical characteristics of the tumor, such as staging, tumor size and lymph node metastasis. These data reinforce the CSC theory and favor the use of these biomarkers as possible determinants of prognosis.

Effect of Milk Renewal on Cell Viability In Vitro at Different Time Frames.

Braz Dent J 2017 Jul-Aug;28(4):435-439

Department of Dentistry, UFSC - Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, Florianópolis, SC, Brazil.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate if the renewal of milk as a storage medium, every 12, 24 and 48 h, is able to increase its ability to maintain human periodontal ligament fibroblasts (PDLF) viability over time. PDLF were soaked in Minimum Essential Medium at 37 °C (MEM-37) (positive control), tap water (Water) (negative control) and in skimmed milk (44 wells) at 5 °C and 20 °C. The skimmed milk was renewed every 12 h (Milk-12), 24 h (Milk-24) and 48 h (Milk-48) in 11 wells of each plate, and the milk in the remaining 11 wells of each plate was maintained in situ (not renewed milk) (NRM). After 24, 48, 72, 96 and 120 h, cell viability was determined by the tetrazolium salt-based colorimetric (MTT) assay. Data were statistically analyzed by Kruskal-Wallis, Scheffé and Mann-Whitney tests (a=5%). At 5 °C, only Milk-48 was significantly better than NRM. At 20 °C, NRM was more effective than Milk-12 and Milk-24 in all time periods. In relation to the temperature (5 °C or 20 °C), renewal of milk at 5 °C was better in maintaining cell viability than the renewal at 20 °C. In conclusion, the renewal of milk was able to increase its ability to maintain cell viability only when performed every 48 h in milk maintained at 5 °C.

Crown discoloration promoted by materials used in regenerative endodontic procedures and effect of dental bleaching: spectrophotometric analysis.

J Appl Oral Sci 2017 Mar-Apr;25(2):234-242

Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, Departamento de Odontologia, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brasil.

Objectives: To assess tooth crown's color after intracanal treatment with triple antibiotic paste (TAP) or calcium hydroxide (CH); cervical sealing with glass ionomer cement (GIC) or mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA); and bleaching with carbamide peroxide.

Material And Methods: After pulp removal and color spectrophotometer measurement, 50 bovine incisors were divided into 4 experimental groups and one control (untreated). Experiments were performed in phases (Ph). Ph1: TAP (ciprofloxacin, metronidazole, minocycline), TAPM (ciprofloxacin, metronidazole, amoxicillin), DAP (ciprofloxacin, metronidazole), or CH treatment groups. After 1 and 3 days (d); 1, 2, 3 weeks (w); and 1, 2, 3 and 4 months (m), color was measured and medications were removed. Ph2: GIC or MTA cervical sealing, each using half of the specimens from each group. Color was assessed after 1d, 3d; 1w, 2w, 3w; 1m and 2m. Ph3: Two bleaching sessions, each followed by color measurement. Data were analyzed with ANOVA and post-hoc Holm-Sidak method.

Results: Ph1: Specimens of TAP group presented higher color alteration (ΔE) mean than those of TAPM group. No significant difference was found among TAP or TAPM and CH, DAP or Control groups. Ph2: cervical sealing materials showed no influence on color alteration. Ph3: Different ΔE means (from different groups), prior to bleaching, became equivalent after one bleaching session.

Conclusions: TAP induces higher color alteration than TAPM; color alteration increases over time; cervical sealing material has no influence on color alteration; and, dental bleaching was able to recover, at least partially, the tooth crown's color.

Effect of temperature and seven storage media on human periodontal ligament fibroblast viability.

Dent Traumatol 2017 Apr 15;33(2):100-105. Epub 2016 Dec 15.

Department of Dentistry, Federal University of Santa Catarina, Florianopolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil.

Background/aim: Natural resources, such as coconut water, propolis, and egg whites, have been examined as possible storage media for avulsed teeth. However, there is a lack of research focused on the efficacy of these three products together compared with Hank's balanced salt solution and milk. The aim of this study was to evaluate the capacity of seven storage media to maintain the viability of human periodontal ligament fibroblasts (PDLFs).

Material And Methods: PDLFs were kept at 5°C and 20°C, in skimmed milk (SMilk), whole milk (WMilk), recently prepared Hank's balanced salt solution (HBSS), Save-A-Tooth system's HBSS (Save), natural coconut water (Coconut), Propolis, and egg white (Egg) for 3, 6, 24, 48, 72, 96, and 120 h, through the analysis of tetrazolium salt-based colorimetric (MTT) assay.

Results: At 5°C, SMilk and WMilk were better than HBSS in maintaining cell viability, from 24 h onward. At 20°C, HBSS was the best storage medium at 96 and 120 h. At both temperatures, from 6 h onward, Coconut, Propolis and Egg were less effective than SMilk, WMilk, and HBSS. In general, the performance of Coconut, Propolis and Egg were not influenced by storage temperature. However, the lowest temperature undermined the effectiveness of HBSS from 24 h and favored SMilk and WMilk, from 96 and 48 h onward, respectively. Save and water were the worst storage media.

Conclusion: SMilk was the best storage medium, followed by WMilk and HBSS. Coconut, Propolis, and Egg can be indicated for the conservation of PDLF up to 3 h. The lower temperature (5°C) undermined the effectiveness of HBSS and favored SMilk and WMilk.

Fibroblast Viability after Storage at 20 °C in Milk, Hank's Balanced Salt Solution and Coconut Water.

Braz Dent J 2016 Jul-Aug;27(4):404-7

Department of Dentistry, UFSC - Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, Florianópolis, SC, Brazil.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of various storage media at 20 °C in maintaining the viability of human periodontal ligament fibroblasts (HPLF) over time. HPLF were maintained at 20 °C in skim milk (SM), whole milk (WM), freshly prepared Hank's balanced salt solution (HBSS), Save-A-Tooth(r), natural coconut water (NCW), coconut water industrialized (ICW) and tap water (negative control) for 3, 6, 24, 48, 72, 96 and 120 h. Cells maintained in Minimal Essential Medium (MEM-37) at 37 °C served as a positive control. Cell viability was determined by MTT assay. Statistical analysis was performed by Kruskal-Wallis test and Scheffe test (α = 5%). From 24 h, NCW was significantly better in maintaining cell viability than all other tested storage media (p<0.05). SM and WM were significantly better than HBSS for up to 72 h. Save-A-Tooth(r) and ICW were the worst conservation storage media. In conclusion, the effectiveness of the tested storage media to maintain the viability of the periodontal ligament cells was as follows, in a descending order: NCW > MEM-37> SM and IM> HBSS> ICW > Save-A-Tooth(r)> tap water.

Effect of passive ultrasonic irrigation on diffusion of hydroxyl ion through radicular dentine.

Clin Oral Investig 2016 Mar 4;20(2):247-52. Epub 2015 Jun 4.

Discipline of Endodontics, Department of Dentistry, Campus Universitário Reitor João David Ferreira Lima, Federal University of Santa Catarina, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil, Zip Code: 88040-900.

Objective: This study investigated the effect of passive ultrasonic irrigation (PUI) on diffusion of hydroxyl ions through radicular dentine.

Materials And Methods: After chemomechanical preparation of root canals in 60 human teeth, the cementoenamel junction and the apical 3 mm of each root were covered with fast-setting adhesive. Four final irrigation protocols were applied (n = 10): group (G)1: irrigation with EDTA + NaOCl; G2: EDTA + PUI + NaOCl; G3: EDTA+(NaOCl + PUI); G4: (EDTA + PUI) + (NaOCl + PUI). Ten teeth irrigated with distilled water followed by PUI (G5) served as the negative control. After drying, the canals were filled with calcium hydroxide paste (CH), sealed and kept in individual vials containing 10 mL of distilled water with known pH values. At 7, 14, and 21 days, the pH of the water in the vials was measured. The pH values in various groups were analyzed with two-way ANOVA (irrigation protocol and time period as factors) and Holm-Sidak multiple comparison test (α = 0.05).

Results: Changes in pH was not significantly different among groups (P = 0.651) but was significant different among different time periods (P < 0.0001). For all groups, ion diffusion was higher at 14 and 21 days than at 7 days.

Conclusions: PUI has no effect on diffusion of hydroxyl ions through radicular dentine. When CH is used as temporary filling material, a waiting period of at least 14 days is required to create an alkaline environment within the radicular dentine.

Clinical Relevance: The use of PUI during final irrigation phase does not improve the action of CH when it is used as temporary filling material.
