ABSTRACT

Sleep Medicine Training for the Dentist?

The last 50 years have seen explosive advances in science and medicine, particularly in general and dentistry. Quite a few paradigms in both, these sciences have changed and continue to change. Case in point: When I was an undergraduate student in dentistry in the early 1990s and even further down the road, clinical findings, such as linea alba bucca, scalloped tongue, generalized attrition, visibility of posterior pharyngeal space, “abfractions,” etc. were merely documented by studious students and slipped into oblivion for the rest of the time.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: Assessing knowledge, perception, attitude, and practices of pregnant/lactating mothers concerning their own and their infants’ oral health in relation to their oral health status and educational level.

Materials and methods: Anonymous self-administered questionnaire, 317 completed it, response rate = 90.57%. It constituted sections for demography, evaluating oral health knowledge during pregnancy/postpartum, saliva-sharing behavior of mother with baby, infant-feeding practices, and perception of oral health knowledge and attitudes. Oral health condition was measured using decayed, missing, and filling, papillary, marginal, and attached gingiva, and simplified oral hygiene indices. Four scores were constructed from participants’ responses to interpret results.

Results: Fair oral hygiene, moderate gingivitis, and caries index was the oral health status, with negative correlation with educational level. About 66.88% had poor perception and practices toward their oral health during pregnancy, with significant difference and negative correlation with oral health status. Significant difference (P<0.001) & positive correlation was detected regarding knowledge about causes of oral/ dental problems and oral health attitude in relation to level of education with 58.68% poor knowledge and negative attitude. Above three quarters had poor knowledge and practices and negative attitude for their infants’ oral health, with significant result and positive correlation with educational level. Poor perception (54.26%) was recorded regarding causes of oral/ dental diseases, methods of tooth cleaning, and types and benefits of using toothpaste in relation to oral health status with a significant difference and negative correlation.

Conclusion: Data revealed that expectant and lactating mothers had poor knowledge, perception and practices, and negative attitude toward their oral health during pregnancy and postpartum as well as their children’s oral health.

Keywords: Attitude, DMFT index, Expectant and lactating mothers, Knowledge, Perception, Practices, OHI-S index, Oral health, PMA index.

ABSTRACT

The absence of a natural apical constriction in permanent tooth makes endodontic treatment a challenge. Traditionally, calcium hydroxide was used for inducing the formation of an apical barrier. Currently, mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) has shown promising results for apexification procedures. In an open apex, it is imperative to limit the MTA placement within the confines of the root canal for predictable healing. The placement of an internal matrix may limit the extrusion to some extent. Many materials can be used as internal matrix such as collagen membrane, calcium sulphate, hydroxyapatite, freeze dried bone, and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) among others. This case report presents a successful demonstration of the management of an open apex using MTA placed over an internal apical matrix of PRF.

Keywords: Apexification, Mineral trioxide aggregate, Open apex, Platelet-rich fibrin.

ABSTRACT

Mandibular condyle fractures are one of the most frequent injuries of the facial skeleton. The option for open treatment of mandibular condyle fractures has become more favorable since osteosynthesis materials were developed in the past few decades. However, the rigid fixation techniques of treating condyle fractures remain one of the controversial issues in maxillofacial trauma. Several techniques and plate types such as adaption miniplates, minidynamic compression plates, resorbable plates, and double plates have been evaluated biomechanically in various experimental and clinical studies. The present case report is to evaluate the clinical use of indigenously developed titanium delta-shaped miniplate in open reduction and internal fixation of subcondylar fracture.

Keywords: Delta plate, Osteosynthesis of condyle, Subcondylar fracture.

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

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

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

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.
