    Dental implant has been scientifically documented and clinically used for more than fifty years. Treatment plans and surgical procedures of dental implants have been closely related to periodontology. A comprehensive periodontal exam is a critical part in a diagnosis and treatment plan. Multidisciplinary approaches for implant treatment plans will achieve optimal clinical results and have begun to increase in use. Classic periodontal concepts, such as biological width and attached gingival, also apply to the bone and soft tissue around dental implants. Similar to periodontal maintenance, the long-term success of dental implants depends on regular maintenance programs. Therefore, periodontology is the base of dental implant treatment plans and surgical procedures. Understanding of periodontology is important for everyone involved in dental implant treatments.

    Objective To analyze the effects of angiotensin(Ang)Ⅱ on the expression of osteopontin(OPN)and matrix metalloproteinase(MMP)-2 in osteoblast-like MC3T3-E1 cells and the type of receptors. Methods The mouse osteoblast -like MC3T3 -E1 cells were cultured, and divided into four groups, exposed to different concentrations of AngⅡ(10-8, 10-7, 10-6 mol•L-1) with one group as control. The secreted concentrations of OPN, MMP-2 were evaluated by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. In addition, the blockers of the two distinct types of receptors(AT1R and AT2R)were used to identify the receptor through which the Ang Ⅱ act in the osteoblastlike MC3T3-E1 cells. Results Ang Ⅱ, the concentration of which was within 10-8 to 10-6 mol•L-1 could increase the expressions of OPN, MMP -2 in a dose -dependent mannner. 10 -6 mol•L-1 Ang Ⅱ could stimulate the expressions of OPN, MMP-2 in a time-dependent mannner with the peak at the time of 24 h after the exposure. The AT1R blocker Losantan could significantly reduce the expressions of OPN and MMP-2 in the osteoblasts(P<0.05), while the AT2R blocker PD123319 didn’t have this effect. Conclusion Ang Ⅱ could enhance the expressions of OPN and MMP-2 in dose- and time-dependent manners via AT1R.

    Objective To compare the bond durability of five self-adhesive resin cements to polished and sandblasted zirconia ceramic. Methods Zirconia ceramic samples were sintered and polished. Half of polished ceramic samples were sandblasted with 50 μm alumina particles. The roughness of polished and sandblasted zirconia ceramic surface was measured by 3D-laser scanning microscope. The polished and sandblasted ceramic samples were bonded to composite cylinders with either Biscem(BC), G-Cem(GC), RelyX U100(RU), Multilink Speed(MS) or Maxcem (MC). The samples divided into two subgroups to receive respectively shear test after 0 and 10 000 time thermal cycles. The data were analyzed by one-way ANOVA test and independent sample t test. Results Air abrasion significantly increased Ra of zirconia ceramic surface(P<0.001). Thermocycling decreased significantly the bond strengths of all test groups(P<0.001), in which polished specimens bonded with MS had significantly higher bond strength than those bonded with either BC, GC, RU, or MC(P<0.001), and air abrasion significantly increased the bond strength of BC, GC, RU and MC, whereas the bond strength of MS was not significantly affected by air abrasion. Conclusion The bond durability of different self-adhesive resin cements to zirconia ceramic has significant differences, and their bond durability was not completely influenced by air abrasion of ceramic surface.
