Abstract

The etiology of alveolitis is unknown but there are some factors increasing its incidence, such as: traumatisms, infections, the reduction of the vascular supply of the circunjacent bone and the general systemic status. Ozonized sunflower oil was used as the only drug to treat alveolitis in a group of patients, and a comparison was made with a control group in which Alvogil eas used in addition to an oral antibiotic. The sample was composed of 100 adult patients distributed at random. Cures were made every 72 hours, and there were as many visits to the dentist's office as it was required. The cure criterion taken into consideration was the formation of cicatrization tissue and the reduction or erradication of pain. 46 % of the patients were cured with Oleozon and 41 % with Alvogil. There were no significant differences between both groups. Most of the patients needed 2 or 3 visits to the dentist's office in both groups, though it was observed a higher number of patients in the group treated with ozonized oil with marked differences (p=0,004) as regards the control group. No intolerance to Oleoson was observed.

Abstract

Ozone, an allotropic variety of oxygen, is constituted by triatomic molecules of this element. Ozone has been considered to be one of the most powerful oxid ants that can be used in Dentistry. Its use is presented as a new alternative in the treatment of carious lesions, as its clinical effectiveness has been proven by several studies related to the inhibition of virus, bacteria and fungi. Because of its acknowledged property of inhibiting and/or destructing many oral cavity bacteria, such as Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus sailguis and Actinoniyces odontolyticus, its use in the treatment of carious lesions is based on its antimicrobial activity, with decrease in acidity of the biofilm, allowing the diffusion of calcium and phosphate ions in dental caries and providing the remineralization of affected dentin and enamel. Currently, ozonotherapy is considered a promising therapy by its low investment and maintenance cost, easy application and satisfactory clinical results. Yet the ozone decomposes rapidly and the presence of oxygen radicals can interfere with polymerization of adhesive materials. Thus, the aim of this study is to present a review of literature on the use of ozone in the treatment of caries and its effect on adhesive restorative procedures. (English)

Abstract

Objective: Bisphosphonate induced osteonecrosis of the jaw (BIONJ) is often seen in oncologic patients with bone metastasis, who are treated with intravenous bisphosphonates as a result of elective dental treatment. Clinical course: We present a case report of a 68-year-old patient with BIONJ in the right maxillary premolar region after a tooth extraction. The patient had breast cancer, bone metastasis, and received intravenous bisphosphonate therapy and anti-mitotic chemotherapy. Conservative therapy for stages 1 and 2 of BIONJ was indicated with mouth washes, antibiotics and, in addition, local Aquacel Ag wound dressing and HealOzone therapy. After 6 months of drug absence (bisphosphonates), the surgical procedure was performed and the patient obtained a removable prosthetic appliance. Discussion and conclusion: Conservative treatment in addition with Aquacel Ag and HealOzone reduced pain and infection in the waiting period, but the wound did not heal. The surgical procedure after the drug treatment was an efficient solution. Prevention is the best treatment of BIONJ. (English)
