  • Role of secretome mesenchymal stem cells as immunomodulator in periodontal
           diseases

    • Authors: Desi S. Sari, Ernie Maduratna, Candra Bumi, I-Ketut Sudiana, Fedik A. Rantam
      Pages: 139 - 146
      Abstract: Objective: The purpose of this review literature is to look at the mechanism of mesenchymal stem cell secretome in the regeneration of periodontal tissue.Methods: This literature review was collected from several journals and research that has been done, where the application of Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) promises a favourable result for cell-based therapy in inflammatory diseases, immune system disorders, regeneration, and tissue repair.Results: MSCs possess a potent immunomodulatory function, paracrine effects, and the ability to differentiate into different cells. Not only mesenchymal stem cells can replace damaged tissue or cells but also secrete secretome namely bioactive ingredients such as cytokines, chemokines, growth factors, pro-inflammatory, and anti-inflammatory which play an essential role in regulating the host immune system. Periodontal disease is an inflammatory disease that occurs in the teeth supporting structures. Lately, many therapies for periodontal disease utilized MSCs from gingival tissue and periodontal ligaments. Secretome activates endogenous MSCs to improve the immune system in periodontal disease that might create a better microenvironment of periodontal tissue.Conclusion: The secretome of MSCs has attracted a lot of attention and has the potential to repair and regenerate tissues including periodontal tissue

           Bangladesh: A retrospective study of 329 cases

    • Authors: AFM S. Rahman, Ismat A. Haider, Md. Hur. Rashid
      Pages: 164 - 168
      Abstract: Objective: The purpose of this retrospective study was to reveal the pattern of maxillofacial fractures in a tertiary hospital in Bangladesh. Materials and Methods: A sum of 329 cases with maxillofacial trauma was treated in the inpatient department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of Dhaka Dental College Hospital from January 2016 to December 2018. The outcome variables included age, gender, etiology and anatomic site of fractures.Results: The age range was 4-82 years with peak frequency occurring in the age group 21-30 years. The mean age was 28.08 ± 14.77 (Mean ± SD) years. The male to female ratio was 4.98: 1. We observed that, 80.85% cases encountered from road traffic accidents (RTAs) followed by assault (8.51%). The mandible (61.7%) was predominantly affected bone followed by zygomatic complex (9.71%), midface (9.42%). The body (35.78%) was the commonest site of mandibular fracture followed by the parasymphysis (23.32%), angle (17.57%) and condyle (14.07%). The least affected site was the ramus (0.4%) and the coronoid (0.64%) process. In midface fractures, the zygomaticomaxillary complex (ZMC) was the most susceptible area (25.40% of midface) followed by maxilla (24.60%). In a nutshell, the incidence of mandibular and zygomatic complex fractures was predominant among maxillofacial fractures.Conclusion: Young men were predominantly affected in maxillofacial trauma, as they were involved in outside activities mostly. Road traffic rules should be strictly implemented. Awareness of safety guidelines should be executed by campaigning. In a nutshell, the incidence of mandibular and zygomatic complex fractures was predominant among all the maxillofacial fractures.

           alveolar ridge preservation

    • Authors: Feni Istikharoh, Hidayat Sujuti, Edi Mustamsir, Astika Swastirani
      Pages: 197 - 199
      Abstract: Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the swelling behaviour of Hand Polyvinyl Acetate/Polyvinyl alcohol (HANP/PVA) and HANP/PVA/Poly Lactic-co-Glycolic Acid (PLGA) composites.Material and Methods: This study was divided into 2 groups, HANP/PVA and HANP/PLGA/PVA composites which prepared by freeze drying methods. HANP 20% (w/w) was combined with PLGA 20% (w/w) and dissolved in PVA solution at 50oC. Swelling behaviour was obtained by measured initial weight (Wi) and the weight of composites after immersing in PBS pH 7.4; 37oC for 7 days (swollen weight (Ws)). Statistical analysis based on Independent T-test (p<0.05).Results: The Wi of HANP/PVA and HANP/PLGA/PVA composites are 467±4.73 and 292±9.52. The Ws of HANP/PVA and HANP/PLGA/PVA composites are 897±26.61 and 860±32.36. Furthermore, the water retention of HANP/PVA composite is 92.07% (p<0.05) and HANP/PLGA/PVA composite is 194.52% (p<0.05).Conclusion: The addition of PLGA enhance swelling behaviour of HANP/PVA composites. The strong interaction between HANP and PVA decrease the swelling re. HANP is inert in nature, but the combination of HANP/PLGA/PVA can be a good substitute for alveolar preservation.

  • Reciprocal force generated by two sliding jigs: An alternative mechanic
           for molar protraction

    • Authors: Fazlur RNA. Fashih, Alma Kasita, Soekarsono Hardjono, Sri Suparwitri
      Pages: 200 - 203
      Abstract: Objective: When a first molar is lost, orthodontic replacement with second and third molars would be an excellent treatment option. There are some side effects that tend to occur during molar protraction, such as mesial tipping of molar that could increase the time required to correct. These side effects can be avoided by understanding the biomechanical variables affecting molar protraction. The author tries to present the modification of sliding jigs, instead of the power arm function, with additional of lingual force, for molar protraction.Methods: This case report describes the management of a 23-years-old woman who was missing left mandibular first molar, had class III skeletal profile, and anterior crossbite. After anterior crossbite correction, the left mandibular first molar extraction spaces were closed by protraction of the second and third molars. Mesial tipping was detected in the early protraction phase when using conventional method. Consequently, uprighting procedure was done and protraction was continued using reciprocal force generated by two sliding jigs and lingual buttons to achieve bodily movement of tooth.Results: The result was excellent, the space was closed without tipping and rotation.Conclusion: The presented article provides an alternative mechanic for molar protraction using sliding jigs and how it can be designed to achieve predictable result.

  • Surgical management of impacted mandibular premolar

    • Authors: Orsola Brucoli, Eleonora Rivetti, Paolo Boffano
      Pages: 204 - 206
      Abstract: The impaction of mandibular premolars is a challenging complication in tooth eruption. The arrested eruption of the lower premolars can determine disturbances of mastication and aesthetics. Moreover, the frequent tight relationship between the impacted premolar and the inferior alveolar nerve makes the management of this condition extremely difficult. In this article, we report the management and the outcome of the surgical treatment of an unusual case of impacted mandibular premolar.
