Xerostomia is ubiquitous. Also, it is defined in a variety of ways. No standard treatment guidelines exist. And there is not apparent cure on the horizon. In this session, several treatment options are reviewed including lifestyle modifications to medications. Drugs, such as pilocarpine and cevimeline provide relief but often come with untoward side effects. Over-the -counter remedies vary in their results, including saliva substitutes and oral lubricants, select toothpastes, alcohol-free mouth rinses, gels and oral sprays, all providing variable results. Because xerostomia is ubiquitous in its manifestations, clinical studies are difficult and necessarily limited in scope.
Clinically, professional and home oral hygiene are key to alleviating discomfort and avoiding complications of xerostomia. Effective treatment options should be viewed as a partnership involving the dental professionals and the patient. Dentists are hygienists are important resources to the patient, providing accurate information about the nature and extent of the condition as well as the treatments available. and instruction regarding home care.

Title: Genistein and Oxaliplatin Effects in Reduction of Cancer Stem Cells Activity in Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma: An Experimental Study
Squamous cell carcinoma is one of the malignant diseases that affect the oral cavity worldwide. One of the theories regarding oral carcinogenesis is that tumor growth is dependent on cancer stem cells. Markers specific for these cells as CD44 have been investigated in hope of developing a deeper understanding for their role in carcinogenesis. Genistein, as chemopreventive agent, has been shown to suppress the growth of several tumors. Oxaliplatin is a chemotherapeutic compound that did show a range of antitumor activity. This research was carried out to study the effect of genistein, oxaliplatin either alone or in combination during experimentally DMBA induced hamster buccal pouch carcinogenesis using CD44 antibody as a marker. A total of 100 young Syrian hamsters distributed into groups as follows: 4 normal animals examined for the histology of the normal pouch mucosa and 96 animals divided into; group I, as a control group, in which pouches were painted with a heavy mineral oil only; group II were painted with DMBA mixed in a heavy mineral oil. These animals were randomly divided into 4 subgroups as following: group IIA only painted with DMBA; group IIB where genistein was orally administrated; group IIC were injected with oxaliplatin; and group IID in which both genistein and oxaliplatin were given. Both genistein and oxaliplatin provided a significant reduction in carcinogenesis process of DMBA induced oral squamous cell carcinoma. Moreover, they provided a significant decrease in the proliferation and activity of cancer stem cells as measured by the CD44 antibody. Genistein provides a chemoprevention role and the oxaliplatin produces a chemotherapeutic effect during the process of carcinogenesis. The combined action of both agents was better than the effect of each agent alone.

THE FIRST COMPOSITES in indirect technique (Mörmann 1982, Touati 1983), made using microfilled resins, were not a great success because of their mediocre properties. On the other hand, in view of the good results obtained with the feldspar ceramics used for the facets, these were introduced for later inlays-onlays posterior.However, the number of fractures of the restorations initiated a return of the practitioners towards the composite in view of the constant evolutions of the material with time. Currently, the choice of this material over the ceramic provides the following benefits:
• better mechanical behavior;
• lower cost;
• the possibility of a repair in the mouth (using cabinet composites);
• easier edge finishing;
• Reliability associated with comparable longevity.
Composites have evolved a lot in the last decades (from micro-filled composite to nanohybrid), not only in terms of mechanical properties (decrease of polymerization stress...) but also in their ease of work (choice of color, injectable materials, polishing...). In addition, the realization of the contact point is much easier with the current material available (metal matrices fine and pregalbées, spacer ring...). Therefore, nowadays, one can expect a longevity of at least 10 years for a direct composite inserted in a small cavity.
Title: Initial examination of orthodontic patient. Combination of normal straight wire technique and MEAW technique in orthodontic cases . Edgewise VS Prescription.
Alina Tykhomyrova finished a National Medical University of Bogomolets, Finished Ukrainian Military Academy. General Dentist in Slavna Medical Clinic from 2015. Orthodentist in Slavna medical clinic from 2018. Specialist of Hydra Facial and IPRF technology in Slavna Medical clinic from 2015
Initial examination of patient is very important part of treatment planing. Wider range of primary examination give us bigger opportunity to determine right diagnosis and make a treatment plan. Before doctor start intraoral examination, he could predict a lot of things from diagnosis, just from the patient's face, listening complaints, pronunciation and examine patient's muscles and temporomandibular joint. From right diagnosis doctor start to do a treatment plan and choose system and treatment technique. It could be removable appliance or unremovable appliance together with bracket system , or just bracket system (metal/clarity/composite...). Also we have a lot of different technique which we could use in our practice (straight wire, multi loop wire, Tweed technique, lingual...). In my presentation I would like to share my experience and compare two different technique (straight wire and MEAW edgewise) in different ortho cases. Compare advantages and disadvantages of edgewise and prescription bracket systems and decide all together which one is more efficient and safety to gain the best result.

After tooth extraction,the alveolar ridge commonly decrease in volume and change morphologically. These changes are usually clinically significant and the placement of implant supported crown get complicated and extremely challenging. With aim of achieving an optimal esthetic result, so special care is being taken to focus on the details that would lead to this objective; these details may include imitating the natural teeth,by harmonizing the structures around the placed implant. The socket shield technique has demonstrated the potential in preventing buccal tissue from resorption in clinical studies. In this technique, root fragment attached to buccal bone plate is retained to maintain the biological integrity of the buccal periodontium (bundle bone) and immediate implant placement lingual to the retained fragment is performed. A case report presents a 13 year old girl with a traumatic upper right lateral incisor, replaced by an immediate implant by leaving a partial root fragment at buccal side. Four months after implant placement, clinical examination showed healthy peri implant soft tissue and well preserved ridge. So, applying socket shield technique and immediate implant placement is a feasible treatment option in case with high esthetic concern.
