The rationale for surface treatment (coating) of dental implants is to produce a bioactive surface which promotes bone growth (osseointegration) and induces a direct bond between the implant and hard tissues and produce roughened surface for bone ingrowth to ensure anchorage in the jaw. The aim of this review is to provide an insight and enrich our knowledge on various surface treatment (coating) materials and methods adopted on dental implants promoting osseointegration, a prerequisite for clinical success of dental implants.
The review clearly explains the merit and demerits of different materials used and different methods employed. It provides an updated knowledge to the dentists who are involved in dental implants, to select and use the best biomaterial. This would help in clinical success of dental implants.

Most common complaint of childhood and adolescence is concern about dental abnormalities and facial appearance. Replacing the missing teeth is important from a functional, esthetic and psychologic standpoint. Edentulous spaces often exist in children and adolescents due to trauma and congenital absence of permanent teeth, ectodermal dysplasia etc., and traditional therapeutic approaches have included removable partial dentures, fixed prosthesis with minimal tooth preparation (Ex. “Maryland bridge”) and orthodontic movement of teeth to close spaces. All of these treatment modalities have distinct disadvantages; most are temporary solutions at best and costs can be substances. Dental implants represent an alternative to the more conventional treatment methods. Implants precludes the necessity to prepare the teeth to receive bridge-work, prevents rapid resorption of alveolar bone and mucosal inflammation that is almost inevitable with temporary acrylic-based partial dentures.

Trigeminal neuralgia is one of the most common causes of facial pain. Patients describe severe pain involving orofacial region with trigger zones. This intense and often agonizing pain can be very debilitating. The most common cause of trigeminal neuralgia is thought to be nerve root compression by a blood vessel.
Various treatment options like medications, surgery, microvascular decompression, balloon compression, glycerol injection, radiofrequency rhizotomy have been tried. To minimize the disadvantages of the above procedures, a latest technique, stereotactic radiosurgery system CyberKnife, is currently used.
Precisely targeted radiation is delivered to the trigeminal nerve using a completely non-invasive, painless out-patient procedure. A mean marginal prescription dose of 58.3 Gy and a mean maximal dose of 73.5 Gy is usually employed. There is no need for local or general anesthesia, no blood loss.

Radicular cyst is the most common inflammatory odontogenic cyst . It is classified as periapical, lateral and residual cyst. Etiology is due to physical, chemical or a bacterial injury resulting in the death of the pulp and leading to periapical granuloma and cyst. In this article the pathogenesis of Radicular cyst has been explained in three stages as Phase of initiation, Phase of cyst formation, and phase of enlargement. Entire pathogenesis has been represented in a schematic and a flow chart pattern to simplify and understand the concept.

Traditionally a diagnostic modality, ultrasound is emerging as a promising tool for non invasive therapy, drug delivery, and gene therapy. The ultrasound is a mechanical wave energy generated in a medium as oscillating pressure in space and time at frequencies above 20 kHz, beyond the audible range. The ultrasound exposure generates bio effects resulting in tissue heating, shear stress, and cavitation, which have been exploited for therapeutic application. Ultrasound cavitaion, enhanced by injected micro bubbles, perturbs cell membrane structures to cause sonoporation and increases the permeability to bioactive materials. Ultrasound-mediated gene delivery has been applied to heart, blood vessels, lung, kidney, muscle, head and neck tumor with enhanced gene transfection efficiency. The gene can be incorporated into micro bubbles which in turn can target a specific disease site. Local drug delivery ensures sufficient drug concentration at diseased region while limiting toxicity for healthy tissue. Nevertheless, it has only recently become popular as a technique to enhance drug release from drug delivery system. So this poster enlightens about the therapeutic application of sonoporation.
Keywords: sonoporation, ultrasound, drug delivery, gene therapy.
