Design Of Parallel Robot For Dental Articulation And Its Optimization, Abulimiti Delimulati 2018 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Design Of Parallel Robot For Dental Articulation And Its Optimization, Abulimiti Delimulati

Mechanical (and Materials) Engineering -- Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research

A dental articulator is a mechanical device used to simulate the relative position and motion between the upper and lower jaw when constructing and testing dental prostheses. Typically, it can be adjusted to approximate patient-specific jaw kinematics in order to analogue the static relationship and specific motions of a patient’s mandible to maxilla. However, the use of dental articulators is essentially a trial-and-error method in order to fine-tune fit and function of a dental prosthesis. Some of the most advanced current dental articulators can reproduce the position and the motion passively; furthermore, dentists need special training for measuring patients ...

Cannabidiol Alters The Immune Response To Porphyromonas Gingivalis In Mice., Shilpa Singh 2018 University of Louisville

Cannabidiol Alters The Immune Response To Porphyromonas Gingivalis In Mice., Shilpa Singh

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Background: Porphyromonas gingivalis is an important etiologic agent of chronic periodontitis, an infectious disease defined by destruction of supporting tissues of the teeth. Marijuana is a risk factor for chronic periodontitis, although underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. As phytocannabinoids have been ascribed antiinflammatory properties, we hypothesized that cannabidiol exposure would lead to altered immune response to P. gingivalis infection facilitating bacterial persistence and, subsequently, increased alveolar bone loss in cannabidiol (CBD)-exposed mice. Methods: P. gingivalis-infected cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2) knockout and wild type C57/Bl6 mice were exposed, or not exposed, to cannabidiol. Oral swabs from mice were used ...

Effect Of Dental Scaling And Root Planing On Serum Inflammatory Markers In Patients With Coronary Heart Disease: A Systematic Review, Dalal Alomar

Dental Theses

Background: Coronary heart disease is a common manifestation of atherosclerosis. Various inflammatory markers including C-reactive protein, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, interleukin-6, and fibrinogen play role in the development of atherosclerosis. Periodontitis is the inflammation of teeth supporting structures initiated by bacteria of the oral biofilm. Several studies have shown that periodontitis is associated with increased levels of serum inflammatory markers involved in atherosclerosis. Recently, there is an increasing number of trials investigating the effect of scaling and root planing on reducing level of systemic inflammation between periodontal maintenance visits in patients with coronary heart disease to decrease the inflammatory burden in ...
