Comparative Evaluation of Fracture Resistance of Endodontically Treated Teeth Restored with Different Core Build-up Materials: An Study.

Int J Clin Pediatr Dent 2021 Jan-Feb;14(1):51-58

Department of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry, Sri Guru Ram Das Institute of Dental Sciences and Research, Amritsar, Punjab, India.

The aim is to evaluate the fracture resistance of endodontically treated teeth restored with posterior direct composite (PRC) resin, bulk-fill composite resin, dual-cure composite (DCC) resin, and short fiber-reinforced composite (SFC) resin material.

Materials And Methods: Ninety sound maxillary premolar teeth were divided into 6 groups which comprised 15 teeth each. Group I was a negative control group where neither cavity preparation nor root canal treatment was done on the specimen. Group II was named positive control group as it was left unrestored after mesio-occluso-distal (MOD) preparation and root canal treatment. Groups III to VI were filled with PRC, bulk-fill composite, DCC, and SFC, respectively, and subjected to fracture testing in a universal testing machine.

Results: After statistical analysis, it was seen that group VI had increased mean fracture resistance as compared to other groups.

Conclusion: It was concluded that short fiber-reinforced composite proved to have superior properties that other experimental groups and hence can be used as a core build-up material.

Clinical Significance: The core build-up is requisite as the residual tooth structure after endodontic procedure decreases and core build-up supplements the resistance and retention of the tooth structure.

Clinical Comparison of Three Tooth-colored Full-coronal Restorations in Primary Maxillary Incisors.

Int J Clin Pediatr Dent 2020 Nov-Dec;13(6):622-629

Department of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry, Sri Guru Ram Das Institute of Dental Sciences and Research, Amritsar, Punjab, India.

Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the surface texture, anatomical form, marginal integrity, marginal discoloration, and secondary caries of three different types of crowns in primary anterior teeth at different time intervals of 3, 6, and 9 months.

Materials And Methods: Total 45 primary maxillary incisors were randomly selected and divided into three groups of 15 each: group I-strip crowns (Pedoform strip crowns, 3M, United States), group II-zirconia crown (kids-e-crown, India), and group III-luxa crown (DMG, Germany). All the full-coronal restorations were evaluated at 3, 6, and 9 months. The modified USPHS criteria were used to evaluate different parameters. Data were collected and the nonparametric test (Chi-square) was used to analyze the intergroup data.

Results: Statistically nonsignificant difference was observed for most of the parameters except marginal integrity and secondary caries. Resin strip crowns showed maximum cases with distorted marginal integrity and secondary caries.

Conclusion: Zirconia crown performed best among the three full-coronal restorations. Luxa crown performed similar to zirconia crown. It can be used as an alternative economical esthetic full-coronal restoration for primary maxillary anterior incisors.

Clinical Significance: This study illustrates the advantage of the temporization material as a full-coronal restoration option in primary maxillary anterior teeth.

Effect of Esthetic Defects in Anterior Teeth on the Emotional and Social Well-being of Children: A Survey.

Int J Clin Pediatr Dent 2019 May-Jun;12(3):229-232

Department of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry, Sri Guru Ram Das Institute of Dental Sciences and Research, Amritsar, Punjab, India.

Objectives: This study aimed to determine whether imperfections in the anterior dentition affect the emotional and/or social well being of school going children in Amritsar district of Punjab, India.

Methods: A total of 2582 children between the ages 10 and 15 years of both genders were examined. Of these, 528 children with esthetic imperfections were asked a series of questions to assess their emotional and social disposition, with respect to children with no esthetic defects.

Results: Females were more shy if they did not have a perfect anterior dentition ( = 0.000). Low socioeconomic status corresponded with gender (females) in determining emotional insecurity. Malocclusion was the most common cause of aesthetic defects (291/528 children), followed by causes such as, hypoplasisa/hypocalcification, stains, peg shaped, microdontia, congenitally missing (46.4%), trauma (30.5%) and caries (1.2%). Irrespective of cause of defect, 53.8% of children were emotionally affected, in that, were fearful of being teased by other children (77.1%).

Evaluation of the Impact of Oral Health Education on Oral Hygiene Knowledge and Plaque Control of School-going Children in the City of Amritsar.

J Int Soc Prev Community Dent 2017 Sep-Oct;7(5):259-263. Epub 2017 Sep 18.

Department of Public Health Dentistry, Sri Guru Ram Das Institute of Dental Sciences and Research, Amritsar, Punjab, India.

Aims And Objectives: The present study aims to evaluate the impact of oral health education on oral hygiene knowledge and plaque control of school-going children in the city of Amritsar.

Materials And Methods: The study was carried out for 6 weeks and included four groups of schoolchildren of 10-12 years of age. Children were randomly selected and assigned into one of the four groups - Group I (verbal communication), Group II (verbal communication and self-educational pamphlets), Group III (audiovisual aids and verbal communication), and Group IV (control group). Oral health education was assessed by getting a questionnaire filled by children and plaque scores was recorded using Silness and Loe plaque index before and after the study. The data were then compared and analyzed using SPSS 16 software manufactured by IBM.

Results: Differences in knowledge gain after the dental health education were statistically significant between all the groups, except between Group II and Group III in which the difference was not found to be significant. Group III showed the highest decrease in plaque score followed by Group II. There was a significant difference in reduction in plaque scores between all the groups, except between the Groups II and III.

Conclusion: Both methods, i.e., pamphlets and audiovisual aids when used along with oral lectures, are equally effective in improving the knowledge and plaque scores in children.

Correlation of the Day 3 FSH/LH Ratio and LH Concentration in Predicting IVF Outcome.

J Reprod Infertil 2013 Jan;14(1):23-8

IVF and Reproductive Biology Centre, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi, India.

Background: This study was undertaken to evaluate the role of day 3 FSH/LH ratio and day 3 LH level as predictors of IVF cycle outcomes.

Methods: This prospective observational study was undertaken in the IVF and Reproductive Biology Centre and Lok Nayak Hospital, affiliated to Maulana Azad Medical College, in New Delhi, India. The study included 105 women who underwent controlled ovarian hyperstimulation for in vitro fertilization. Characteristics of IVF cycles and outcomes were studied in patient subgroups based on day 3 FSH/LH ratio (<2 and ≥2) and day 3 LH levels (>3 and ≤3 mIU/ml). The student t-test, Bartlett's test, chi-squred (χ(2) ) and Fisher's exact test, and linear regression model were used for data analysis. A p-value less than 0.05 was considered as statistically significant.

Results: Women with an elevated FSH/LH ratio ≥2 (n = 31) required higher doses of gonadotrophins (3019.34 vs. 2482.43 IU). The outcome of IVF was poor in these patients and they had fewer number of mature follicles (>16 mm) (5.44 vs. 6.09), less E2/mature follicle ratio (4.65 vs. 6.36), fewer retrieved oocytes (6.67 vs. 9.09) and fewer pregnancy rates (11.1% vs. 33.8%). On the other hand, patients with low basal LH levels (≤3 mIU/ml) did not differ significantly in terms of response to controlled ovarian hyperstimulation except for fewer number of retrieved oocytes (7.33 vs. 7.91) but there was a trend towards poor pregnancy rates (7.33 vs. 7.91) but there was a trend towards poor pregnancy rates as compared to subgroup with LH levels >3 mIU/ml.

Conclusion: Elevated day 3 FSH/LH ratio is associated with inferior outcome in IVF treatment cycles and it could be used as an additional predictor of decreased ovarian reserve.
