One-Year Clinical Evaluation of Patient Satisfaction for CAD/CAM BIOHPP PolyEtherEtherKetone
(PEEK) Versus Zirconia Veneered Single Crowns (Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial)
Abdelrahman Mustafa El sokkary, Noha El Khodary and Nermeen Nagi
Aim: Comparing the clinical performance of CAD/CAM BioHPP PEEK- based crowns to zirconia veneered crowns through evaluation
of patient satisfaction.
Methodology: 24 full coverage crowns were fabricated for Molars. Scaling and polishing were performed for all the patients one
week prior to preparation. Regarding crowns’ material patients were divided into 2 main groups: In Group 1 (control group) patients
received Zr veneered crowns while in Group 2 (intervention group) patients received PEEK crowns. Supra- gingival, chamfer finish
line is performed for all teeth during preparation as a method of standardization. CAD/CAM (CAM5-S1) machine with software
(Exocad) was used for performing try-in and provisionalization. All restorations were veneered and surface treated regarding the
manufacturer’s instructions. All the crowns were cemented by using self-adhesive resin cement (by BISCO). During follow up visits
evaluation of shade and function to determine patient satisfaction by questionnaire. Measurements were repeated every (2- 4- 6- 8-
10 and 12 months respectively.
Results: Fisher’s Exact test was used in comparison between groups. There was no statistically significant difference between the 2
groups (P-value = 1, Effect size = 0.478) for every time.
Conclusion: Both PEEK crowns and Zr veneered crowns revealed successful clinical performance from patient satisfaction and
clinical performance aspect. The two materials showed no significant difference; regarding the patient satisfaction and clinical

Success Rate of Short and Extra Short Implants Versus Inferior Alveolar Nerve Lateralization
Surgery - Comparative Study of Six Cases
Marcelo Yoshimoto, Jefferson de Oliveira Carvalho, Jefferson Pereira Xavier, Zilma de Oliveira Souza, Marcelo
do Lago Pimentel Maia and Irineu Gregnanin Pedron
The loss of bone volume after exodontia in the posterior region of the mandible can be caused by several reasons. In childhood, early
loss may occur due to caries and trauma. In adulthood, tooth loss can be caused by caries, trauma, periapical pathology, periodontal
disease or traumatically performed extractions. The loss of the bone structure supporting the implants leads to another problem.
In the posterior region of the mandible, the installation implants is made more difficult by the presence of the inferior alveolar
nerve. To meet this need, some possibilities of treatment are presented, such as bone block grafts, short implants or inferior alveolar
nerve lateralization surgery. The purpose of this article is to compare six cases in which short implants and inferior alveolar nerve
lateralization surgery were performed for implant installation.

Diabetic patients have to be treated with a prevention protocol since they are susceptible to infections.
Different preventive measures are used such as: premedication, mouthwashes, scaling and root planing, prophylaxis, defocusing
(exodontia of pieces with loss of support and periodontal insertion), karyological treatment, oral rehabilitation. Among the
delocalization protocol in diabetic patients, where extractions are to be performed, it is established as a rule after the evaluation to
perform a panoramic radiograph, eventually a periapical radiograph (when you want to evaluate a sign located in the piece). Degree
of infection in the tooth and type of premedication, elimination of predisposing factors of periodontal disease through prophylaxis,
elimination of the stone. Despite all the preventive protocols, there is always a latent condition of complications, for this reason
publications have been found in different scientific articles on the use of ozone gas as a complementary element in disinfection of oral
pathogens, oxygenation of tissues and a beneficial effect on healing.
With this objective, we found an innovative and complementary protocol to reduce the bacterial load before dental extraction with
ozone gas topication at the level of the gingival margin and papillae, both at the level of the preoperative preparation (prophylaxis,
scaling, scaling and root planing). as at the time before the extraction, and once the extraction, coagulation formation and ozonation
of the surface and gingival mucosa of the tooth extracted, a success rate greater than 50% is expected, compared to the protein
structures of the pathogens.
In the following work, we are going to address the issue of medical ozone applied in dentistry, in a controlled patient with diabetes,
for which the concentration of medical ozone in % 30Ug was used to help reduce the bacterial load, due to the properties that it has
this gas against oral tissues and against pathogens, in this case of greater relevance, such as an insulin-dependent diabetic patient.

Possible Late Complications due to Lip Filling: Tooth Movement
Danilo Lourenço and Irineu Gregnanin Pedron
Aesthetics is currently the main reason for seeking dental treatment.
Dental surgeons seek to identify the various factors that
compromise facial harmony. Beauty and the perception of what
is beautiful, throughout history, has always been understood as a
subjective and individual issue, deeply influenced by cultural, racial
and ethnic values. The growing symbolism of beauty and the
body has a great impact on the quality of life and well-being of
each individual, so it should be considered in the broad context of
health. The harmonious proportions of the face and other features
such as the eyes, nose, lips, chin and neck are paramount to an attractive

Dentistry in the Context of COP27
Irineu Gregnanin Pedron
Recently, the United Nations Climate Change Conference took
place this year, the Conference of the Parties - COP27, in Sharm el-
Sheikh, Egypt, between 6 and 18 November 2022. During this period,
we experienced multiple effects triggered by COVID-19 and
the invasion of Ukraine by Russia. Concomitantly, unprecedented
climate disasters caused devastating and widespread shaking. Extreme
weather events accounted for about US$65 billion in total
losses in the first half of 2022. Faced with natural gas shortages,
several European Union members are reactivating coal plants and
calling on countries in Africa and other parts of the world for new
gas suppliers. Rationing of water and electricity in several countries
around the world has led to a fall in the production of food
and inputs, as well as an increase in prices.
