Abstract

Background: Tooth eruption is a more general process, however, which includes certain posteruptive toothmovements. There are two fundamental requirements for both tooth eruption to occur:(1) Require soft tissue, intervening between tooth structure and alveolar bone, which plays an important role inregulating the remodeling of adjacent tissues.(2) Require bone turnover that is temporally and spatially regulated to facilitate specific translocations of teeththrough alveolar boneThese amniotic stem cells are multipotent and able to differentiate into various tissues, which may be useful forhuman application and recently it used in many medical branches. CD34 is an endothelial marker that is extensivelyused in immunohistochemistry and most vascular endothelial cells. Expression of the stem cell antigen CD34 is adefining hallmark of hemopoietic stem cells and progenitors. This study aimed to study the expression of CD34 bydental cells involved in tooth eruption after administration of amniotic stem cellMaterials and Methods: forty eight albino Swiss mice of one day old age injected with isolated amniotic stem cells inthe anterior region of maxilla (incisors area) other 16 mice injected with saline represents control. Sacrifice 4 mice foreach period (4, 7, 10, and 13) day old age. The result were studied histologically and immunohistochemistry.Results: Immunohistochemical result revealed positive expression of CD34 in pulp (Vascular, Paravascular),Mesenchymal cell and in the Dental sac of different groups. Coincidence test of expression marker CD34 in variousstudied group shows that Chorion application affected on CD34 expression in pulp while Amniotic fluid affected ondental sac.Conclusion Immunohistochemical study of expression marker CD34 in various studied groups show that chorionapplication affected on CD34 in pulp .While amniotic fluid affected on dental follicle

Abstract

Background: Tooth eruption is a localized process in the jaws which exhibits precise timing and bilateral symmetry.Develop within the jaws and their eruption is a complex infancy process during which they move through bone totheir functional positions within the oral cavity. For species with more than one set of teeth, eruption of the second setalso accomplishes. The key to the successful clinical management of tooth eruption consists of understanding thatthis process consists largely of the local regulation of alveolar bone metabolism to produce bone resorption in thedirection of eruption and shift and formation of bone at the opposite side.The amniotic sac contains a considerablequantity of stem cells. These amniotic stem cells are able to differentiate into various tissues, which used in many field.Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is an important angiogenic factor reported to induce migration andproliferation of endothelial cells, enhance vascular permeability, and modulate thrombogenicity. VEGF expression incultured cells (smooth muscle cells, macrophages, endothelial cells) is controlled by growth factors and cytokines.The aim of this study was to study the administration of cell molecules of (Chorion, Amnion and Amniotic fluid)around developing mouse tooth and studying the expression of VEGF marker.Materials and Methods: forty eight albino Swiss mice of one day old age injected with isolated amniotic stem cells inthe anterior region of maxilla (incisors area) other 16 mice injected with saline represents control. Sacrifice 4 mice foreach period (4, 7, 10, and 13) day old age. The result were studied histologically and immunohistochemistry.Results: VEGF marker localized and identified in 3 areas; pulp, P.D.L, and Bone. In pulp. The mean value of positiveVEGF expression showed to be highest in Amnion group in comparison to the other studied groups. The marginalmean value of all periods reported to be highest in Amnion groups followed by Chorion group. The period 10 dayshowed highest marginal means value for positive VEGF expression for all groups. In P.D.L. area Amniotic fluid recordsthe highest mean and marginal mean value specifically at day-10 in comparison to other studied groups. In Bonearea Amniotic fluid records the highest mean and marginal mean value among the studied groups followed byChorion group. Period 7-day and 10-day shows high mean value for VEGF expression. Coincidence test for VEGFmarker illustrates to be affected by Amniotic fluid application in P.D.L. and in bone area while Amnion and Chorionapplication showed to be concerned with pulp.Conclusion. It reported that amniotic fluid application affected on expression of VEGF in P.D.L and bone whileamnion and chorion showed to affect on expression of VEGF in pulp.The present study highlighted on clinical andresearcher application of Amniotic fluid and Chorion for supplement of stem cell in dental tissue engineering or evenin other body tissues.

Abstract

Background: Synthetic hydroxyapatite,(Ca10(PO4)6(OH2) can directly bond to bones without infection and fibrousencapsulation, thus is regarded as bioactive and biocompatible. The aim of the study was the estimation ofmicroarchitecture bone parameters include bone mass (gm/cm2) cortical bone width (mm), thread width (mm),marrow space star volume analysis (V*m) and osteoblast, osteocyte cell number.Materials and methods: Ninety-six (96) commercially pure titanium CpTi) used in this study, (48) implants were coatedwith HA by dipping coating and (48) implants were used as control. They were inserted in (32) Newzland white rabbitsand followed for 2 & 6 weeks. Mechanical torque removal test and histomorphometric analysis of bonemicroarchiteture were performed for evaluation of osseointegration.Results: Results revealed, Torque values were increased with advancing time for coated and uncoated groups. Andspecifically dip coated implant showed high value in comparison to control. Histomorphometric analysis for boneparameters showed highly significant difference in overall contrasted groups of implant in 2nd and 6th week interval.Conclusion: Dip coating method is an alternative coating technique for dental implant to enhance better boneimplant contact and improve osseointegration
