  • THE TECHNIQUE FOR MAKING AESTHETIC ACRYLIC RESIN REMOVABLE PARTIAL
           DENTURES IN AN ANTERIOR CROSS BITE CASE

    • Authors: Okti Setyowati, Endang Kusdarjanti, Sujati Sujati, Eny Inayati, Sri Wahyuni, Mia Laksmi Lita Rosa, Nevy Istibasyarotul Pratiwi
      Pages: 78 - 84
      Abstract: Background: Certain cases such as anterior cross bites require a different aesthetic removable denture technique from the conventional removable denture. Purpose: To provide an overview of a case about the technique of making aesthetic acrylic resin removable partial dentures for anterior tooth replacement in cases of anterior cross bite. Case analysis: The study examined the working model with maxillary and mandibular anterior cross bite cases. Result: The arrangement of artificial teeth was carried out as ideally as possible, so that it became harmonious. In this case, the incisal artificial teeth 11, 12, 21 were brought forward labially, so that an edge-to-edge position was formed with the opposing teeth. The clasp made was a half jackson which was placed on teeth 15 and 25, so that when the patient smiles the clasp is not visible to fulfill the aesthetic requirements. Conclusion: The technique of making aesthetic removable partial dentures in cases of anterior cross bite that has received more attention is the arrangement of the dental elements because it is different from the normal tooth arrangement. The artificial teeth were arranged in edge-to-edge bite position in order to obtain a harmonious occlusion while taking into account of the labial arch of the adjacent tooth as well as occlusion with the opposing tooth.

           DIABETIC MODELS’ TEETH AFTER ORAL ADMINISTRATION OF OLIVE OIL

    • Authors: Salwa Az-Zahra, Fani Tuti Handayani, Ryana Budi Purnama, Setiadi W. Logamarta
      Pages: 85 - 92
      Abstract: Background: In patients with uncontrolled diabetes, an increase in Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) inhibits osteoblast differentiation so that the number of osteoblasts decreases and interferes with bone formation in orthodontic movement. Giving natural ingredients such as olive oil is proven to increase the number of osteoblasts. Purpose: To determine differences in the number of osteoblasts and their effect on the orthodontic movement of diabetic teeth after oral administration of olive oil. Method: 25 male guinea pigs divided into four groups: diabetic guinea pigs treated with olive oil at a dose of 0.7; 1.05; 1.4 ml/day, distilled water, and healthy guinea pigs were given aquadest. Alveolar bone tissue samples were taken on the 15th day after orthodontic application, and then the number of osteoblasts was calculated histologically. Result: In the diabetic model group treated with olive oil doses of 0.7; 1.05; 1.4 ml/day, distilled water, and healthy guinea pigs given aquades were 2.900 ± 0.678; 4.320 ± 0.497; 5.920 ± 0. 460; 0.200 ± 0.200; 1.320 ± 0.415. The study showed that the olive oil treatment group had more osteoblasts than the untreated group. Analysis one way ANOVA showed a very significant difference between the treatment group and the untreated group (p≤0.01), while the LSD test showed a significant difference between groups. The highest number of osteoblasts was found at a dose of 1.4 ml/day. Conclusion: There was an increase in osteoblasts in the orthodontic movement of diabetic teeth after oral administration of olive oil.

      Abstract: Background: HIV/AIDS cases continue to increase globally. A person with a weak immune system, especially people with HIV/AIDS, is very susceptible to various diseases, such as tuberculosis. Tuberculosis infection can be associated with HIV-positive individuals, which is caused by damage to cellular immunity due to the reduced number and function of CD4 cells. Purpose: To determine the profile of HIV/AIDS patients with TB coinfection based on CD4 values in RSUD Ibnu Sina Gresik. Method: The method used is observational analytical cross-sectional. Patients with TB and HIV coinfection were recapitulated from the Case Report Form (CRF). The results are presented in a frequency distribution table. Result: The study obtained information about 36 people with TB co-infected HIV/AIDS cases. Patients with CD4 values <200 cells/mm3 were 35 people (97.22%), and most of them were in the age group of 20-60 years were 35 people (97.22%). Male patients (83.33 %) dominate compared to female patients (16.67%). The duration of TB coinfection in HIV/AIDS patients occurs in less than one month, which is 21 people (58.33%). Conclusion: The profile of HIV/AIDS patients co-infected with TB is based on CD4 values that are more dominant in men, with the highest age being 20 - 60 years.

      Pages: 118 - 126
      Abstract: Background: Job burnout is a phenomenon that often occurs in the workplace because of experiencing prolonged job stress. The higher the level of workers’ self-efficacy, the lower the probability of job stress and the potential of job burnout experienced by workers. Purpose: To identify the influence of self-efficacy and job stress toward job burnout at a packaging company in Surabaya. Method: It was an analytical observational research with a cross-sectional approach. The respondents of this research were 99 workers in the production site of the packaging company in Surabaya. Questionnaire was used to collect individual data including age, gender, work period, education, and marital status which were related to the respondents’ characteristics, while self-efficacy questionnaire was used to gather data about the workers’ self-efficacy, HSE Management Standards Indicator Tool for job stress questionnaire, and Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) for job burnout questionnaire. Further, simple random sampling was used to draw the sample. The data were descriptively analyzed using related linear regression test. Result: Self-efficacy was proved to significantly influence job burnout in the aspects of reduced personal accomplishment (p-value=0.000), but self-efficacy did not influence job burnout in the aspects of emotional exhaustion and depersonalization. Whereas job stress was proved to significantly influence job burnout in the aspect of emotional exhaustion, depersonalization or reduced personal accomplishment (p-value=0.000). Conclusion: In sum, all aspects in job burnout were influenced by job stress.

    • Authors: Alifiah Rizky Rosydah, Y. Denny Ardyanto Wahyudiono, Ahmad Imaduddin, Dani Nasirul Haqi, Meirina Ernawati
      Pages: 127 - 133
      Abstract: Background: The movement of coal or other activities in the stockpile area of a steam power plant can create a coal dust hazard or commonly referred to as respirable dust. The smaller the particle size, the more harmful effects it can have on human health, such as bronchitis, decreased lung function, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Coal Worker's Pneumoconiosis (CWP), and other respiratory diseases. Purpose: To study the chemical hazards of the working environment of coal dust and the control efforts conducted in the stockpile area of a steam power plant company. Method: This research was descriptive observational with a cross-sectional study. The data were comprised of primary data collected from interviews and observations, and secondary data such as environmental measurement report and documentations owned by company. Result: The results of the measurement of coal dust hazard in the stockpile are were 0.007 mg/m3 and 0.063 mg/m3 for personal dust measurements. Some of the coal-dust-hazard control efforts performed by PT. POMI included the installation of a spray gun, a dust suppression system, reforestation, and ventilation setting. Further, OHS induction was conducted, together with safety talk, working hour regulations, toolbox meeting, training on the use of PPE, Medical Check Up (MCU), person authorization, preventive maintenance, and the use of PPE by workers. Conclusion: The measurement of the coal dust hazard in the stockpile area is below the threshold value which is 3 mg/m3 for respirable particles and 10 mg/m3 for inhalable particles. PT. POMI has done several preventive and control efforts towards coal dust hazard, and there were no health problems found in workers.

      Pages: 134 - 141
      Abstract: Background: Compared to manufacturing industry, construction has a unique characteristic. These characteristics cause construction projects to have dangerous conditions and make them vulnerable to an occupational accident. Purpose: To analyze the influence of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) management on the building construction workers’ safety behavior at construction service company Surabaya. Method: This research classification is observational and a cross-sectional research with analytic nature. This research is conducted over 4 months. The research sample amounted to 53 workers. Its dependent variable is safety behavior (OHS behavior) with the top manager’s commitment, OHS procedure regulation, communication, worker’s competency, interpersonal relationship and physical hazard as its independent variables. Data is descriptively analyzed in the form of a frequency table and cross-tabulation. A statistical test is performed by using the chi-square test with α=0.05. Result: Management commitment (p-value=0.001) and OHS procedure regulation (p-value=0.029) significantly affect the safety behavior implementation to the worker. Conclusion: Two Independent variables which affect the safety behavior of the building construction worker at construction service company Surabaya ware management commitment (X1) and OHS procedure regulation (X2). The regulation of OSH procedures must be communicated, promoted to workers, and supervision of workers can be increased as a form of good commitment and given support by providing rewards for workers who have implemented safe behavior properly and providing punishment for workers who conduct unsafe behavior.

      Abstract: Background: One of the occupational diseases is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). CTS is a condition in which the hand feels tingling, numb, painful, or weak. This syndrome occurs when the nerves inside the wrist are squeezed or compressed. Jobs that are at risk of CTS involve doing repetitive movements, working with awkward postures, working in a motorized vehicle production or working using computers. Purpose: To determine the factors associated with the incidence of CTS in workers that used computers in the finance division of Property Industry. Method: This research used quantitative research with cross-sectional design with a total sample of 34 respondents who worked in the finance division. The data were obtained through secondary data and questionnaires with direct observation and variables including gender, age, length of service, working period and awkward hand postures. The analysis carried out includes univariate and bivariate analyses using the chi-square test. Result: The univariate analysis of the respondents indicated there were 22 people (68.8%) experiencing CTS. Further, there were 22 people (75.5%) at risk from gender proportion, 22 people (68.8%) from age, 26 people (81.3%) from length of service, 22 people (68.8%) from long working period, and 24 people (74.0%) from awkward postures. Conclusion: There is a relationship between length of service, posture and the incidence of CTS on the workers using computers from the financial division of Property Industry.

           PROCESSING APPLICATIONS

    • Authors: Maizza Nadia Putri, Kusworo Adi, M.Irwan Katili, Sidin Hariyanto, Dwi Rochmayanti
      Pages: 151 - 157
      Abstract: Background: Evaluation of brain tumor MRI image results performed by radiologists employing the linear measurement method has several weaknesses and is sensitive to subjectivity. Purpose: To compare the results of measurements and calculations of brain tumors utilizing the linear measurement method on the Siemens 1.5 Tesla MRI modality employing pulse sequence spin echo with T1 contrast weighting compared with the results of measurements and calculations of brain tumors utilizing the active contour segmentation method. Method: An experimental study was conducted on 32 MRI images. Result: The study’s findings indicated that the linear measurement was more significant than the active contour segmentation method (p-value<0,05). The results were obtained by calculating the sensitivity and specificity values of the diagnostic test, which were calculated to be 87.5%. Conclusion: The active contour segmentation method applied to pulse sequence spin-echo T1-weighted contrast can be utilized as an alternative measurement and calculation of brain tumors with a sensitivity and specificity value of 87.5%. Further research suggests developing a Matlab application to compare the results of measurements and calculations of brain tumors on acquiring 3D image magnetic resonance imaging data.
