    Dental implant restoration is an effective way to restore the chewing and aesthetic function for edentulous. However, dental implant restoration is facing great challenges of the lack of available bone, the maxillary sinus or inferior alveolar nerve vascular bundle, which is often necessary to carry out the related bone augmentation operation. All-on-Four technique is to use four implants in the anterior part of complete edentulous jaws, the two most anterior implants are placed axially whereas the two posterior implants are placed distally angled, to support a provisional, fixed, and immediately loaded prosthesis. The technique avoids the artificial bone substitutes implantation and maxillary sinus augmentation or other bone augmentation surgery. Besides, it could alleviate patients' psychological reaction, postoperative reaction, as well as time and money costs. It is considered a feasible treatment method to combine the application of the oblique implant and the axial implant in the treatment of the edentulous patients. This paper will elaborate on the concept of All-on-Four, the conventional technology, the evaluation research and some new viewpoints.

    Objective To study the epidemiological characteristics of oral cancer and the pattern of the onset of oral cancer, in order to provide references for preventing and monitoring the development of oral cancer. Methods The information of 4 097 oral cancer patients who came from Guangdong province treated in the Sun Yat-Sen University Cancer center from 1960 to 2013 was retrospectively analyzed. SPSS 21.0 was used for the statistical analyses.Results The male-to-female ratio among oral cancer patients was approximately 2:1 and this ratio decreased over time. Oral cancer mostly occurred in patients between 45 to 64 years, and the percentage of elderly patients gradually increased over time. The most common location was the tongue especially lateral tongue. The pathological type of oral cancer was mainly squamous cell carcinoma. The percentage of O blood type in oral cancer patients was significantly lower than that in the normal population. The male-to-female ratio in the Chaoshan area was higher than that in the Guangfu area and the Hakka area, whereas the age of disease onset in the Guangfu area was higher than that in the Hakka and Chaoshan areas. The male-to-female ratio was lower and the age of disease onset was higher in the Pearl River Delta region than in the non-Pearl River Delta region.Conclusion During the process of screening for oral cancer, more attention should be paid to the middle-aged and elderly, males, and non-O blood type individuals. In addition, propaganda should be strengthened to encourage residents to change bad living habits.

    Objective To study the effects of arecolineand Calcium ion (Ca 2+) on the permeability of dysplastic oral epithelia model in vitro. Methods To establish the dysplastic oral epithelia model in vitro by culturing oral keratinocyte(DOK) and harvesting a DOK cell monolayer. The models were divided into control group, arecoline group and "Ca 2++ arecoline" group. The values of Lucifer Yellow Papp were used to estimate the permeability changes of models after treatedwith arecoline and Ca 2+. Results In arecoline group, the lucifer yellow Papp values of each subgroup were higher than that of control group (P < 0.05), and the values increased as arecoline concentration elevated and time lasted (P < 0.05). When the "Ca 2++ arecoline" group were pretreated with Ca 2+, the values of subgroup "10 μg/mL" was lower than that of the corresponding arecoline group (P > 0.05). However, the value of subgroup "4 h 10 μg/mL" of "Ca 2++ arecoline" group had no statistical difference with that of control group (P > 0.05), while the other subgroups were increased (P < 0.05); Besides, these values in "Ca 2++ arecoline" group were increased as the arecoline concentration elevated and time lasted too (P < 0.05). Conclusion Intervention of arecoline contributes to the increase of permeability of DOK cell monolayer model, which maybe an important reason for the cancerization of dysplastic oral epithelia, however Ca 2+might weaken these effects of arecoline in the process.

    Objective To investigate the effects of different glucose concentration on the proliferation and osteogenic differentiation of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (hBMSC) in vivo Methods Cultured with basal medium containing different glucose concentrations, CCK-8 cell proliferation was detected at 1, 4, 7, 10 days. The osteogenic differentiation of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells was observed at 7 d, which was induced by osteogenic differentiation medium with different concentration of glucose. The expressions of alkaline phosphatase (ALP), osteocalcin (OC) and collagen type I (Col-1) gene were detected by real-time fluorescence quantitative PCR. Mineralized nodule formation was displayed by calciumalizarin red staining on the seventh day. Results 10 mM glucose stimulated proliferation of hBMSC, while the higher (>30 mM) inhibited the proliferation (P < 0.05); Osteogenic induction can induce osteogenic differentiation of hBMSC, but the increase of glucose concentration will decrease the formation of mineralized nodules of hBMSC, inhibit the expression of osteogenic marker genes ALP, OC and Col-1 (P < 0.05). Conclusion The expression of Col-1, ALP and OC in osteoblast was down-regulated by high glucose, and the hBMSC proliferation was inhibited. At the same time, high glucose can reduce the osteogenic mineralization ability of stem cells and indirectly affect bone formation and metabolism.

    To evaluate the use of dental operating microscope in treating calcified canals. Methods 369 calcified canals were treated with C-Pilot files and ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA) under dental operating microscope. The canals were grouped based on the calcified teeth site and calcified location in canals, and then the success rates of negotiating were analyzed with χ 2 test. Results 310 of 369 calcified canals were negotiated under dental operating microscope, the negotiating rate was 84.01%. For the anterior, premolar and molar, the negotiating rate were 94.78%, 85.98%, and 74.15% respectively. There were significant differences between anterior and molar teeth (χ 2 = 19.658, P<0.05). When the calcification was located in straight canals or above the root canal curvature, canals were negotiated with a success rate of 96.85%. However, it decreased to 39.76% when the calcified portion located below the root canal curvature (χ 2 = 156.113, P<0.05). Conclusion It is an effective way to use dental operating microscope and C-Pilot files to treat calcified canals, but the therapeutic effects might be affected by sites of the teeth and the calcified location in canals.
