Sin-Yeon Cho has obtained endodontic specialist board in Korea in 2013 and completed his PhD from Yonsei University in 2014. He is working in National Health Insurance Hospital Ilsan Hospital in Korea and researching intentional replantation using clinical study, finite element analysis and basic experiment. He has published 3 papers regarding intentional replantation and periodontal ligament regeneration in Journal of Endodontics within the last 2 years.


Intentional replantation is a useful and indispensable procedure that can be applied lastly for tooth preservation in situations where non-surgical endodontic treatment and apical surgery are difficult. However, there are many practitioners who are afraid of the outcome of the procedure because of the rejection due to the operation that accompanies the extraction, and the few studies that can predict the prognosis. I investigated the results of intentional replantation and the major factors affecting the intentional replantation based on the results of analysis of 300 cases performed for 10 years at Yonsei University Dental College Hospital in Korea. Th e purpose of this study is to provide a more precise prediction of the prognosis by analyzing the time of failure and the results of preoperative periodontal status. In addition, we analyzed the outcome factors of extra-oral time and retro-fi lling materials, and discussed the precautions for improving the success rate. We also wanted to share the method for safe extraction with less tooth fracture and root damage. It is the ultimate goal of this lecture that many practitioners will come to intentional replantation with more comfortable mind through such contents.

Her major interest relies on the subject of prosthodontics, temporomandibular disorders and geriatric dentistry.


Quality of Life (QoL) of a patient relates to the satisfaction their denture. Geriatric patient who are well satisfi ed with their daily lives, usually also satisfi ed with their complete denture. Th is study was conducted to assess the QoL pre- and postcomplete denture insertion using a validated Malay language version of Geriatric Oral Health Assessment Index (GOHAI) by single interviewer. It focuses on functional limitation, oro-facial pain, psychological and behavioral impact among patient attended USIM Polyclinic. A sample was taken from 22 edentulous patients and the new denture will be prepared by third year dental students. Th e data comprised of 54.5% male and 45.5% female. Th e mean age was 64.45±5.63 year. Th e QoL of geriatric patient pre-insertion was mostly aff ected in oral function. Th e highest mean for pre-insertion (baseline data) was in functional limitation with mean score 3.18 (SD=1.71) for the problem in chewing. Th e lowest baseline mean recorded were 0.59 (SD=1.18) and 0.59 (SD=0.96) for limitation of contact with people and the used of medication to relieve pain, respectively. Overall, QoL for post-insertion within one to two months was improved. Th e statistical signifi cance with Wilcoxon-Signed-Rank test, pre and 
post-insertion were in oral function (3.18±1.71 and 2.09±1.74, p value=0.03) and psychological impact (2.45±1.26 and 3.50±1.27, p value=0.01). Th e highest changes mean score was in psychological impact with score 1.05. As a conclusion, the placement of complete denture in edentulous patient increase QoL among geriatric patients.
