This study evaluated the viability of platelet-rich plasma for enhancement of osseous and associated soft tissue healing around single-piece implants, subjected to immediate loading and to compare it with a control site not treated with PRP. Twenty completely edentulous patients were selected and 2 one-piece implants with O-ball head were placed for mandibular overdenture. The implant on the right side was treated with PRP whereas the left side implant served as a control. All the cases were immediately loaded and marginal bone loss, probing depth, percussion, implant mobility and peri-implantitis were assessed and compared at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. Overall analysis of the results showed less marginal bone loss, probing depth, percussion, implant mobility and periimplantitis around implants treated with PRP; however, the results were insignificant statistically. PRP can be used as a viable treatment adjunct in immediately loaded one-piece implants.

A comparative study of the mechanical properties of clear and pink colored denture base acrylic resins.

Ann Afr Med 2018 Oct-Dec;17(4):178-182

Department of Prosthodontics, School of Dental Sciences, KIMSDU, Karad, Maharashtra, India.

Context: Pink colored acrylic does not always satisfactorily replicate the natural gingival color, especially in individuals with pigmented mucosa. In such situation clear acrylic denture base material can be used. Hence, there is a need of a comparative study of the mechanical properties of the clear and pink colored denture base resins.

Aims: The aim of this study is to compare the mechanical properties, i.e., tensile, flexural, compressive, and impact strength (IS) of clear and pink colored denture base resins.

Settings And Design: This was comparative in vitro study.

Materials And Methods: A total of 80 specimens were divided into two groups of 40 specimens each of clear and pink colored acrylic resin. Specimens for testing flexural, tensile, compressive, and ISs of acrylic resin (10 in each group) were divided. A universal testing machine was used for measuring flexural, tensile, and compressive strength (CS) while the Izod/Charpy impact tester was used for IS.

Results: The mean tensile strength for clear resin (n = 10) was 30.90 ± 1.663 MPa and that for pink resin (n = 10) was 31.30 ± 8.166 MPa. The mean residual flexural strength for clear resin (n = 10) was 75.60 ± 17.212 MPa, whereas for pink resin (n = 10) was 76.10 ± 14.130 MPa. The mean CS for clear resin (n = 10) was 84.60 ± 2.503 MPa and for pink resin (n = 10) was 85.40 ± 16.222 MPa. The mean IS for clear resin (n = 10) was 11.50 ± 5.104 MPa. While for pink resin (n = 10) was 11.90 ± 1.370 MPa.

Conclusions: The results show that clear acrylic resin denture base material has mechanical properties similar to that of pink acrylic resin denture base material.
