ABSTRACT

Aim: To evaluate the fracture resistance of roots restored with CAD/CAM-fabricated posts, receiving or not intracanal laser treatment, compared with glass fiber posts under mechanical cycling. Methods: Twenty-seven endodontically treated, single-rooted teeth were divided into 3 groups: group 1 (control), prefabricated glass fiber posts relined with resin composite; group 2, CAD/CAM-fabricated intraradicular posts using Resin Nano Ceramic (RNC) blocks; and group 3, CAD/CAM-fabricated intraradicular posts using RNC blocks in canals irradiated with a 940-nm diode laser (100 mJ, 300-um optic fiber, coronal-apical and apical-coronal helical movements, speed of 2 mm/second, 4 times each canal). After cementation of the coping, cyclic loading was applied at an angle of 135° to the long axis of the root, with a pulse load of 130 N, frequency of 2.2 Hz, and 150,000 pulses on the crown at a point located 2 mm below the incisal edge on the lingual aspect of the specimen. Every 50,000 cycles, the specimens were evaluated for root fracture occurring below or above the simulated bone crest. Results were analyzed by one-way ANOVA followed by Tukey's test (p<0.05). Results: Group 1 was the least resistant, while groups 2 and 3 were the most resistant. Group 1 differed significantly from groups 2 and 3 (p<0.01), but there was no difference between groups 2 and 3 (p<0.01). Conclusion: Treatment of the intracanal surface with diode laser had no influence on fracture resistance of roots restored with CAD/CAM-fabricated posts, but a longer cycling time is required to evaluate the real benefits of diode laser irradiation

ABSTRACT

Introduction: the major goal of endodontic treatment (ET) is the complete elimination and/or maximum possible reduction of bacteria and irritants in the root canal system (RCS). However, persistence of bacterial debris refractory to therapy may leading to ET failure, being necessary to realize conventional or surgical retreatment. Objective: this is a case report on the nonsurgical management of an extensive chronic periapical lesion in teeth 12 and 11 in an adult female patient with history of endodontic treatment failure. She presented with painless swelling and a fistula adjacent to tooth 11. Methodology: conventional ET combined with photodynamic therapy (PDT) was recommended, in addition to calcium hydroxide applications. Regular clinical and radiographic follow-up made over a 2-year period revealed progression of bone regeneration, without sign and symptoms, with a satisfactory outcome. Conclusion: this case report shows that the combination of conservative ET with PDT provided satisfactory results with the resolution of the chronic endodontic infection and bone repair of the extensive periapical lesion.


Introdução: o principal objetivo do tratamento endodôntico (TE) é a eliminação completa e/ou máxima redução possível de bactérias e irritantes no sistema de canais radiculares (SCR). Porém, a persistência de detritos bacterianos refratários à terapia pode levar ao insucesso do TE, sendo necessária a realização do retratamento convencional ou cirúrgico. Objetivo: este relato de caso descreve o manejo não cirúrgico de uma extensa lesão periapical crônica nos dentes 12 e 11 em paciente adulta do sexo feminino com histórico de fracasso endodôntico. A mesma queixava-se de inchaço indolor, com presença de fístula adjacente ao dente 11. Metodologia: preconizou-se a realização do TE convencional associado à terapia fotodinâmica (PDT), com três sessões de troca de hidróxido de cálcio, concluindo-se posteriormente o tratamento. Reavaliações clínicas e radiográficas periódicas ao longo de 2 anos revelaram a progressão da consolidação óssea, com um desfecho satisfatório. Conclusão: este relato de caso mostra que a combinação do TE conservador associado à PDT teve resultados satisfatórios na resolução de infecção endodôntica crônica e no reparo ósseo de lesão periapical extensa.

ABSTRACT

Lesions that affect the oral cavity resulting from chemotherapy can lead to systemic impairment, increasing the length of hospital stay, impairing the patient's quality of life. Through a integrative review, this work aims to show the conduct and importance of dentists in promoting oral health and preventing an oral infectious focus. The search was performed in the Pubmed, Cochrone, SciElo and Virtual Health Library (VHL) databases, using the descriptors in English, oral care and Chemotherapy and Cancer treatment and dentistry, filtering only articles in English and published between 2006 and 2021. The search located six hundred and twenty articles, but only seven met the search criteria. One author used a mouthwash containing propolis where 65% of patients were cured on the seventh day after the onset of oral mucositis (OM) lesions. One author used cryotherapy with chamomile infusion, patients who underwent this approach did not pass grade I, being effective in reducing the occurrence of OM, and the other two authors proposed a protocol for oral cavity care. All authors obtained satisfactory results.(AU)


As lesões que acometem a cavidade oral decorrente ao tratamento quimioterápico podem levar a um comprometimento sistêmico aumentando o tempo de internação hospitalar, prejudicando a qualidade de vida do paciente. O foco principal do cirurgião-dentista é identificar e remover fontes de infecção na cavidade oral antes do início da quimioterapia, controlar as possíveis lesões durante o tratamento. Após o tratamento quimioterápico, o paciente retornará para os cuidados dentários gerais, proporcionando manutenção da saúde bucal e prevenção de complicações ao longo prazo do tratamento do câncer. Através de uma revisão integrativa o objetivo desse trabalho é mostrar a conduta e a importância do cirurgião-dentista para promover saúde bucal e prevenir um foco infeccioso oral. A busca foi realizada nas bases de dados Pubmed, Cochrone, SciElo e Biblioteca virtual em saúde (BVS), foram utilizados os descritores em inglês, oral care and Chemotherapy and Cancer treatment and dentistry, filtrando somente os artigos na língua inglesa, estudos com seres humanos e os artigos publicados no intervalo de 2006-2021. A busca com os descritores citados encontrou seiscentos e vinte artigos, entretanto somente sete estavam dentro dos critérios da pesquisa. Um autor utilizou bochecho de própolis, outro crioterapia com infusão de camomila e os outros dois propuseram protocolo de cuidados com a cavidade oral. Todos os autores obtiveram resultados satisfatórios. (AU)

ABSTRACT

La presente investigación se desarrolló con el objetivo de describir el nivel de ansiedad-rasgo en estudiantes de la carrera de Odontología de la Universidad Central del Ecuador, mediante un estudio descriptivo transversal que involucró a 293 estudiantes universitarios de séptimo a noveno semestre. Los datos se recopilaron mediante el Inventario de Ansiedad Rasgo Estado (IDARE), los que mostraron un predominio del nivel medio (58,02%), seguido del alto (39,6%). El 42,38% de las mujeres se catalogó con un alto nivel de ansiedad-rasgo. Entre esa variable y la edad se estableció una dependencia estadísticamente significativa. Los menores de 23 años resultaron más afectados por esa entidad psicológica. La frecuencia del nivel medio se manifestó mayoritariamente en los tres semestres estudiados, aunque el nivel alto estuvo más presente en los alumnos de octavo semestre


This research was developed in order to describe the level of trait anxiety in students of the school of dentistry of the Central University of Ecuador. A cross-sectional descriptive study was carried out, which involved 293 university students from seventh to ninth semester. The data were collected using the State Trait Anxiety Inventory, which showed a predominance of the medium level (58.02%), followed by the high level (39.6%). 42.38% of the women were classi-fied as having a high level of trait anxiety. A statistically significant dependence was established between this variable and age. Those ones under 23 years of age were more affected by this psychological entity. The frequency of the medium level was manifested mainly in the three semesters studied; however, the high level was more present in the eighth semester students.

ABSTRACT

Resumo A formação direcionada para o Sistema Único de Saúde (SUS) tem sido um dos pressupostos mais desafiadores no desenvolvimento dos cursos de Odontologia no Brasil. Para isso, docentes com formação em saúde coletiva desempenham papel fundamental na proposição curricular que privilegie tal abordagem. O objetivo do estudo foi identificar em cursos de Odontologia os possíveis avanços alcançados e os desafios a serem enfrentados na formação para o SUS. Trata-se de uma pesquisa quantitativa, com desenho transversal, cuja amostra foi composta por 119 docentes por meio da técnica probabilística do Snowball. Os participantes responderam a uma matriz de critériosvalidada, sendo realizada a análise fatorial exploratória para análise dos dados, a qual definiu cinco fatores responsáveis pela formação para o SUS: Atenção Básica; Responsabilidade Social e Trabalho em Equipe; Gestão em Saúde; Sistemas de Informação e Educação Permanente/Humanização.O estudo permitiu identificar avanços significativos na perspectiva de uma maior adequação da proposta formativa voltada para o SUS, todavia, existem desafios colocados para os professores que exigem um amplo aprofundamento na perspectiva de enfrentar as barreiras ainda impostas pela tradicional formação na área da saúde.


Abstract The training directed at the Unified Health System (SUS) has been one of the most challenging assumptions in the development of Dentistry courses in Brazil. In this regard, public health educated teachers play a fundamental role in the curricular proposition favoring such an approach. This study aimed to identify the possible advances achieved in Dentistry courses and the challenges in training for the SUS. This is a quantitative, cross-sectional research with a sample of 119 teachers employing the probabilistic Snowball technique. Participants responded to a validated criteria matrix, and an exploratory factor analysis was performed for data analysis, which defined five factors responsible for training for the SUS: Primary Care; Social Responsibility and Teamwork; Health Management; Information Systems, and Continuing Education/Humanization. The study allowed identifying significant advances in the perspective of greater adequacy of the training proposal aimed at the SUS. However, some challenges to teachers require expanding the prospect to face the barriers still imposed by traditional health training.

Introducción: Uno de los derivados de los clorofenoles más utilizado en Estomatología, lo constituye el p-clorofenol (4-clorofenol), empleado como agente antibacteriano en la desinfección del conducto radicular durante el tratamiento pulporradicular. Son escasos los reportes científicos sobre sus efectos en la musculatura lisa vascular arterial y la regulación del flujo sanguíneo local. Objetivo: Determinar el efecto del 4-clorofenol sobre el músculo liso vascular de aorta abdominal de ratas Wistar. Material y Métodos: Se realizó una investigación experimental preclínica, utilizando 30 anillos de aorta abdominal (porción superior) obtenidos de ratas Wistar adultas. Las preparaciones de unos 5 mm se colocaron en baño de órganos, registrándose la tensión desarrollada por el músculo liso vascular tras la adición de 4-clorofenol en diferentes concentraciones y durante diferentes intervalos de tiempo. Resultados: El 4-clorofenol, tras la preactivación del musculo liso vascular de anillos de aorta abdominal, indujo relajación del vaso, la que se incrementó durante todo el tiempo de estudio y al aumento de la concentración del medicamento. Existieron diferencias significativas entre los valores de tensión promedios registrados en los diferentes intervalos de tiempo con los de la tensión base inicial. Conclusiones: El p-clorofenol indujo in vitro, relajación del músculo liso vascular de aorta abdominal de ratas Wistar(AU)


Introduction: In Dentistry, p-chlorophenol (4-chlorophenol) is one of the most widely used derivatives of chlorophenols. It is used as an antibacterial agent in root canal disinfection during pulp-radicular treatment. There are few scientific reports on its effects on vascular smooth musculature and the regulation of local blood flow. Objective: To determine the effect of 4-chlorophenol on vascular smooth muscle of abdominal aorta from Wistar rats. Material and Methods: A preclinical experimental research was carried out using 30 abdominal aortic rings (upper portion) obtained from adult Wistar rats. The preparations of about 5 mm were placed in an organ bath, recording the tension developed by the vascular smooth muscle after the addition of 4-chlorophenol at different concentrations and during different time intervals. Results: The results demonstrate that 4-Chlorophenol induced vasorelaxation after the preactivation of the vascular smooth muscle of the abdominal aortic rings, which increased during the entire study time and with increased drug concentration. There were significant differences among average tension values registered at different intervals of time in relation to the initial base tension. Conclusions: It is concluded that in vitro, p-chlorophenol induced relaxation of abdominal aorta vascular smooth muscle in Wistar rats(AU)

ABSTRACT

Este artigo tem como objetivo avaliar o estado nutricional em relação à presença de cáries dentárias em crianças de 4 a 6 anos de idade, do município de Cajamar, São Paulo. Trata-se de estudo transversal com crianças entre 4 a 6 anos (n=1642), acompanhadas pelo Programa Saúde na Escola (PSE) do Município de Cajamar, São Paulo. A classificação do estado nutricional foi baseada no Índice de Massa Corporal (IMC) e a avaliação das condições bucais, por meio do índice ceo-d e critério para Risco de Cárie. A análise do estado nutricional, faixa etária e sexo conforme o número de cáries, foi feita por meio dos testes Mann-Whitney U e Kruskal-Wallis (p<0,05). Observou-se maior prevalência de meninos entre 4 a 6 anos. Em todas as faixas etárias a prevalência de excesso de peso foi de aproximadamente 30% e eutrofia em torno de 70%. 65% (n=1068) das crianças não apresentavam risco de cárie (A) e 28,8% (n=475), alto risco (D, E e F). Das 1162 crianças sem cáries, 0,2% eram magras (n=2), 67,2% (n=781) eutróficas e 32,7% (n=380) possuíam excesso de peso. A frequência de 1 a 5 cáries maior entre meninas e de 6 ou mais cáries, entre meninos. Segundo estado nutricional, o número médio do número de cáries foi de 2,17 para magreza, 0,93 para eutrofia e 0,65 para excesso de peso (p<0,010). Conclui-se que houve diferença entre número cáries e estado nutricional, na qual crianças com déficit nutricional apresentavam maior número de cáries dentárias comparadas às eutróficas ou com excesso de peso, sugerindo-se a inclusão do estado nutricional na avaliação odontológica.


This article aims at evaluating the nutritional status in relation to the presence of dental caries in children aged 4 to 6 years in the city of Cajamar, in the state of São Paulo. It is a cross-sectional study with children aged 4 to 6 years (n=1642) accompanied by the School Health Program of the City of Cajamar, São Paulo. The nutritional status classification was based on the Body Mass Index (BMI) and the evaluation of oral conditions, through the ceo-d index, and criteria for risk for caries. The analysis of the nutritional status, age, and sex according to the number of caries was made through the Mann-Whitney U and Kruskal-Wallis tests (p<0.05). A higher prevalence was observed among boys aged 4 to 6 years. In all age groups, there was a prevalence of 30% of overweight children, and eutrophy of approximately 70%. A total of 65% (n=1068) of the children presented no risk of caries (A), whereas 28.8% (n=475) showed high risk (D, E, and F). Among the 1162 children with no caries, 0.2% were thin (n=2); 67.2% (n=781) eutrophic; and 32.7% (n=380) were overweight. Girls presented a higher frequency of 1 to 5 caries while boys presented frequency of having 6 or more caries. According to the nutritional status, the average number of caries was 2.17 for thin individuals; 0.93 for eutrophic individuals; and 0.65 for overweight individuals (p<0.010). It could be concluded that there was a difference between the number of caries and the nutritional status, in which children with nutritional deficit presented a higher number of dental caries when compared to eutrophic or overweight ones, suggesting the inclusion of the nutritional status in the dental evaluation.

ABSTRACT

Introdução:O consumo de drogas pode promover consequências para o organismo, sobretudo a cavidade bucal. Objetivo:Verificar quais são as substâncias psicoativas mais utilizadas e suasmanifestações na cavidade bucal. Metodologia:Trata-se de uma revisão integrativa, realizadana base de dados Medical Publications (PubMed) com os descritores "Transtornos Relacionados ao Uso de Substâncias (Substance-Related Disor-ders)" e "Odontologia (Dentistry)" com o operador booleano "And".Foram seleciona-dos artigos primeiramente por meio de leituras exploratórias dos seus títulos e resumos, seguida da leitura dos artigos na íntegra, levando em consideração os critérios de inclusão, que consistiam em textos completos, publicados nos idiomas Português e Inglês, do tipo estudo transversal indexados na base de dados referida, no período de 2015 a 2020 e que associassem o uso das substâncias psicoativas com as manifestaçõesna cavidade bucal, e os critérios de exclusão, que foram artigos de opinião, relatos de caso, revisões de literatura e os estudos que não abordassem sobre a temática da pesquisa. Resultados:A amostra foi composta por 5 artigos seleciona-dos, em que 4 deles realizaram a pesquisa com homens e mulheres e apenas 1 com homens, em ambos os trabalhos a idade dos participantes foram superiores a 18 anos e as substâncias psicoativas analisadasvariaram entre ópio, crack, cocaína, heroína, maconha, álcool e tabaco. Como consequência ao uso dessas substânciasa perda den-tária, presença de cárie dentária e doença periodontal foram as principais manifesta-çõesbucais. Conclusões:O consumo de substâncias psicoativas aumenta o limiar de dor, podendo mascarar a sintomatologia dolorosa das manifestações bucais e postergar a busca por tratamento odontológico, agravando, por vezes, a condição bucal do indivíduo. Sendo portanto, de extrema importância o conhecimento e atuação do cirurgião dentista frente ao usuário de drogas, desde a prevenção, diagnóstico etratamento do caso (AU).


Introduction:Drug use can have consequences for the body, especially the oral cavity.Objective:To investigate the most used psychoactive substances and their manifesta-tions in the oral cavity. Methodology:This is an integrative review, carried out in the Medical Publications database (PubMed) with the descriptors "Substance-Related Dis-orders (Substance-Related Disorders)" and "Dentistry (Dentistry)" with the Boolean operator "And". Articles were selected first through exploratory readings of their titles and abstracts, followed by reading the articles in full, taking into account the inclusion criteria, which consisted of full texts, published in Portuguese and English, of the cross-sectional type indexed in the referred database, in the period from 2015 to 2020 and that associated the use of psychoactive substances with the manifestations in the oral cavity, and the exclusion criteria, which were opinion articles, case reports, litera-ture reviews and studies that did not address the research theme.Results:The sample consisted of 5 selected articles, of which 4 of them researched with men and women and only 1 with men. In both studies, the participants' age was over 18 years, and the psychoactive substances analyzed varied between opium, crack, cocaine, heroin, ma-rijuana, alcohol, and tobacco. As a consequence of using these substances, tooth loss, dental caries, and periodontaldisease were the main oral manifestations.Conclusions:The consumption of psychoactive substances increases the pain threshold, masks the painful symptoms of oral manifestations and postpones the search for dental treat-ment, sometimes worsening the individual's oral condition. Therefore, the knowledge and performance of the dental surgeon concerning the drug user is essential, from pre-vention, diagnosis, and treatment of the case (AU).

Los artículos fueron selec-cionados primero a través de la lectura exploratoria de sus títulos y resúmenes, se-guida de la lectura de los artículos en su totalidad, teniendo en cuenta los criterios de inclusión, que consistieron en textos completos, publicados en portugués e inglés, de tipo transversal indexados en la referida base de datos, en el período de 2015 a 2020 y que asociaran el uso de sustancias psicoactivas con las manifestaciones en la cavidad oral, y los criterios de exclusión, que fueron los artículos de opinión, los informes de casos, las revisiones bibliográficas y los estudios que no abordaron el tema de investi-gación. Resultados:Consistió en 5 artículos seleccionados, de los cuales 4 investigaron con hombres y mujeres y sólo 1 con hombres. En ambos estudios, la edad de los parti-cipantes era superior a 18 años y las sustancias psicoactivas analizadas variaban entre opio, crack, cocaína, heroína, marihuana, alcohol y tabaco. Como consecuencia del consumo de estas sustancias, la pérdida de dientes, la caries dental y la enfermedad periodontal fueron las principales manifestaciones orales.Conclusiones: El consumo de sustancias psicoactivas aumenta el umbral del dolor, enmascara los síntomas dolo-rosos de las manifestaciones orales y pospone la búsqueda de tratamiento odontoló-gico, empeorando en ocasiones la condición oral del individuo. Por lo tanto, el conoci-miento y la actuación del cirujano dentista en relación con el consumidor de drogas es esencial, desde la prevención, el diagnóstico y el tratamiento del caso (AU).

ABSTRACT

A hipnose é conceituada como um estado modificado da consciência, mais próximo da vigília do que do sono. Configura-se como um ótimo método terapêutico auxiliar com diversos benefícios na odontologia, visto que é possível tratar o paciente no consultório empregando essa técnica junto ao tratamento em diversas especialidades odontológicas, além de que permite a dispensa do uso de medicamentos algumas vezes. Deste modo, o objetivo desse trabalho foi avaliar o conhecimento dos estudantes de odontologia sobre a hipnose terapêutica em tratamentos odontológicos. Tratou-se de um estudo exploratório descritivo de abordagem quantitativa realizado com alunos devidamente matriculados no 1º, 5º e 10º períodos dos cursos de Odontologia do Centro Universitário de João Pessoa - UNIPÊ, no Curso de Odontologia da Universidade Federal da Paraíba - UFPB, e no Curso de Odontologia da Faculdade Integrada de Patos - FIP. A amostra da pesquisa foi igual ao universo, sendo constituída de 257 estudantes. A coleta de dados foi realizada na Universidade Federal da Paraíba, UNIPÊ e na FIP sendo utilizado um questionário contendo questões objetivas relacionadas ao conhecimento sobre hipnose e sua aplicação. Com isso, constatou-se que os estudantes eram em sua maioria do gênero feminino (70%) com idade entre 18 e 21 anos (45,1%), não possuíam graduação (76%), não tinham conhecimento sobre as técnicas de hipnose (59%) e nem conheciam a resolução das Práticas Integrativas e Complementares (CFO nº82/2008). No entanto, a maioria dos entrevistados acreditava na técnica (75%), apresentavam vontade de fazer um curso sobre hipnose (77%) e acreditavam que o odontólogo possuía capacidade para realizar tal técnica (67%). Quando perguntados sobre as aplicações da hipnose na clínica odontológica houve o predomínio do controle de medo, trauma, ansiedade e tensão (17,9%). Em relação aos principais traumas no consultório observou-se que a maioria não tinha traumas (43,7%), seguido de barulho do motorzinho (12,1%). Concluiu-se que o fato de uma grande parcela dos estudantes de odontologia não possuir conhecimento acerca da hipnose, pode refletir na necessidade de inserção do conteúdo de Práticas Integrativas e Complementares nos cursos de graduação nessas instituições, além de que existem poucos estudos na literatura com essa temática ressaltando a importância do presente estudo...

Hypnosis is conceptualized as a modified state of consciousness, closer to waking than to sleep. It is configured as a great auxiliary therapeutic method with several benefits in dentistry, since it is possible to treat the patient in the office using this technique along with treatment in various dental specialties, in addition to allowing the dispensation of the use of medications sometimes. Thus, the objective of this work was to evaluate the knowledge of dentistry students about therapeutic hypnosis in dental treatments. It was an exploratory descriptive study with a quantitative approach carried out with students duly enrolled in the 1st, 5th and 10th periods of Dentistry courses at Centro Universitário de João Pessoa - UNIPÊ, in the Dentistry Course at Universidade Federal da Paraíba - UFPB, and in the Dentistry Course at Faculdade Integrada de Patos - FIP. The research sample was the same as the universe, consisting of 257 students. Data collection was carried out at the Federal University of Paraíba, UNIPÊ and at FIP, using a questionnaire containing objective questions related to knowledge about hypnosis and its application. Thus, it was found that the students were mostly female (70%) aged between 18 and 21 years old (45.1%), had no graduation (76%), had no knowledge about hypnosis techniques (59%) and did not even know the resolution of Integrative and Complementary Practices (CFO nº82 / 2008). However, most of the interviewees believed in the technique (75%), they wanted to take a course on hypnosis (77%) and believed that the dentist had the capacity to perform this technique (67%). When asked about the applications of hypnosis in the dental clinic, there was a predominance of fear, trauma, anxiety and tension control (17.9%). Regarding the main traumas in the office, it was observed that the majority had no traumas (43.7%), followed by the noise of the small engine (12.1%). It was concluded that the fact that a large portion of dentistry students do not have knowledge about hypnosis, may reflect the need to insert the content of Integrative and Complementary Practices in undergraduate courses in these institutions, in addition to the fact that few studies were literature with this theme emphasizing the importance of the present study...
