ABSTRACT

There are many forms of alternative medicines for treatment of any type of ailment, applied kinesiology being one of them. It is a scientific technique in which claims to diagnose illness or choose treatment by testing muscles for strength and weakness. A widespread use of applied kinesiology in dentistry has resulted in a complete reevaluation and understanding of patient’s overall health and well-being. Concepts of structural integration, selection of materials for restoration, adjunctive therapies, equipments used for joint vibration analysis, have been described in this article. Review of literature has shown positive response by many dentists for this natural type of medicine. This article presents a review in which applied kinesiology and its uses in dentistry are reviewed and analyzed.

Keywords: Applied kinesiology, Manual muscle testing, TENS.

ABSTRACT

Severe caries, attrition, abrasion, erosions of anterior teeth lead to loss of anterior guidance. This in turn causes attrition of posterior teeth and loss of occlusal vertical dimension. To gain the space for esthetic rehabilitation in these cases is challenging task. The required space can be achieved by crown lengthening and increasing the occlusal vertical dimension within physiologic limits. Unmethodical alteration of vertical dimension may lead to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and masticatory muscle problems. Careful treatment planning and stable occlusion are key point of successful treatment. This case report describes the methodical multidisciplinary approach used to treat severely mutilated dentition.

Keywords: Decreased vertical dimension, Full mouth rehabilitation, Occlusal rehabilitation.

ABSTRACT

Mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) is the most common malignant salivary gland tumor, comprising about 15% of all salivary gland tumors and 30% of all salivary malignancies. Most of the MEC arise in the parotid gland. Rarely, it originates in the mandible and maxilla as an intraosseous variant, referred to as ‘central mucoepidermoid carcinoma’ or ‘intraosseous mucoepidermoid carcinoma’. Central mucoepidermoid carcinomas (CMECs) are extremely rare, but well-known entity, comprising 2 to 3% of all MECs reported. Histopathologically, this malignant neoplasm is characterized by mucous, intermediate and epidermoid cells. In this report, we present a case of a male patient diagnosed as low grade CMEC.

Keywords: Central mucoepidermoid carcinoma, Intraosseous, Mandible, Low grade.

ABSTRACT

The main objective of an endodontic treatment is thorough shaping and cleaning of the root canal system, with the aim to obtain a fluid tight seal by a biocompatible obturating material. Complex unusual root canal morphology is an often-occurring phenomenon. Knowledge and understanding the unusual root canal morphology predicts the successful outcome in endodontic treatment. One such variant root canal morphology is the ‘S’ shaped root canal.
The self-adjusting file (SAF) is a hollow compressible file made up of nickel-titanium lattice. The new concept associated with the SAF is that it adapts itself to the anatomical shape of the root canal and performs mechanical shaping and chemical cleaning with continuous irrigation simultaneously.
This case report discusses endodontic treatment of a maxillary second premolar with a ‘S’ shaped root canal and its successful management with the SAF.

Keywords: S-shaped canals, Maxillary second premolar, Self-adjusting file.

ABSTRACT

Artificial replacement of the lost eye is done with an ocular prosthesis. Loss of eye or any other facial structures affect the physical, emotional and psychological well being of a person. Aim of the maxillofacial prosthesis that will replace such structures will improve patients’ esthetics, restore and maintain health of these structures and, thereby provide physical and mental well being. Accurate impression to duplicate the contours of the defect site is required for the fabrication of custom made prosthesis. A case report of customized ocular prosthesis is described here.

Keywords: Ocular defect, Customized ocular prosthesis, Split cast mold, Scleral wax pattern, Iris, Scleral blank.

ABSTRACT

Although impaction of a permanent tooth is rarely diagnosed during the mixed dentition period, an impacted central incisor is usually diagnosed accurately when there is delay in the eruption of tooth. For the case reported in this article, the impacted incisor was moved into its proper position with surgical exposure followed by orthodontic corrections.

Keywords: Impacted incisor, Orthodontic traction, Surgical exposure.

ABSTRACT

Palatogingival grooves are morphological defects, which are found most frequently in maxillary anterior teeth and are a predisposing factor for periodontal disease. They are easily overlooked as etiologic factors, as these grooves are covered by periodontal tissues. A palatogingival groove may serve as a pathway for the development of a periodontal lesion.
This case report presents successful management of a maxillary lateral incisor with an associated palatogingival groove and deep periodontal pocket. The clinical examination at 1 year revealed shallow residual probing depth.

Keywords: Palatogingival groove, Maxillary lateral incisor, Osseous defect, Regenerative periodontal therapy.

ABSTRACT

Aims and objectives: The present study compared and evaluated the effects of an alum-containing mouthrinse and a saturated saline rinse on existing plaque levels in children.

Materials and methods: The investigation was a double blind, stratified comparison of three parallel groups of children who used either an alum-containing mouthrinse or a saturated saline rinse twice daily under professional supervision for a 21 days period. Dental plaque was recorded using the plaque index described by Silness and Loe at baseline, on days 10 and 21.

Statistical analysis: All data were subjected to statistical analysis using Wilcoxon’s signed ranks sum test and Mann- Whitney U-test.

Results and conclusion: The results of the present study show that alum and saturated saline mouthrinse groups showed statistically significant reductions in dental plaque levels on comparison of the data obtained at baseline, 10th and 21st days over the control group. Among the two adjunctive oral hygiene measures that were evaluated, alum rinse was the most effective in reducing the dental plaque levels.

Keywords: Alum, Saturated saline, Mouthrinse, Dental plaque.

ABSTRACT

The term ameloblastoma was first coined by Churchill in 1934. Robinson and Martinez in 1977 described ameloblastoma as being a tumor that is usually unicentric, nonfunctional, intermittent in growth, anatomically benign and clinically persistent. WHO in 2005 classified ameloblastoma as a benign tumor with odontogenic epithelium with mature fibrous stroma without odontogenic ectomesenchyme. International classification of diseases numbers ameloblastoma as ICD-O 9310/0. Shafers classified it as a being odontogenic tumor presently thought to be as a result of alterations or mutations in the genetic material of cells that embryologically preprogramed for tooth development. It has six histologic variants of which unicystic ameloblastoma is a distinct clinical variety. This article is a report of one such case.

Keywords: Ameloblastoma, Unicystic, Intraluminal, Intramural.

ABSTRACT

Odontogenic myxoma (OM) is a locally aggressive, benign, slowgrowing tumor arising from mesenchyme and/or odontogenic epithelium. It is the third most common odontogenic tumor predominantly affecting females and posterior mandible. Radiographically, OM demonstrates unilocular or multilocular, well or ill-defined radiolucency showing ‘honeycomb’, ‘soap-bubble’ or ‘tennis-racket’ pattern with cortical expansion and tooth displacement. Histologically, OM shows loosely arranged stellate or spindle-shaped cells interspersed in myxoid matrix. Various treatment modalities, such as wide excision, enucleation and curettage, curettage with/without electrical or chemical cautery, enbloc resection and wide resection with/without immediate grafting can be considered based on the extent of the lesion. Here, we present a case of a 17-year-old female, with OM in the left maxilla and the maxillary sinus.

Keywords: Odontogenic myxoma, Maxilla, Myxoid, Reticulin.
