ABSTRACT

In recent years, there has been an increased emphasis on the atraumatic removal of teeth. The Physics Forceps are the latest innovation in dental extraction technology and they provide an efficient means for atraumatic dental extractions. We compared the Physics Forceps with the conventional forceps for the removal of maxillary 1st molars in 30 patients under the following parameters time taken, postoperative pain on 3rd-5th-7th day, incidence of crown/root/buccal plate fracture during extraction. There was a significant difference pertaining to the time taken (p = 0.006) and pain on the 3rd postoperative day (p = 0.031). There were no other significant differences between the groups in any other variable studied. On comparing all of the aforementioned parameters, we have found that the utility of the instrument is better in comparison to the conventional forceps.

Keywords: Atraumatic extraction, Conventional forceps, Maxillary 1st molar, Physics forceps.

ABSTRACT

The study was conducted to investigate and compare the prevalence of complication (laceration of soft tissue) and time taken for a simple tooth extraction with the help of a universal extraction forceps and a physics forceps for mandibular singlerooted tooth. We organized a double-blind, randomized trial to compare the outcome of two groups (n = 50 mandibular single-rooted teeth). The physics forceps group had lower time coefficient (mean ± standard deviation of 1.868 ± 1.503), and when laceration was compared among the two groups, the p value came to be 0.032.

Aim: To evaluate and determine the efficacy of the physics forceps in nonsurgical mandibular single-rooted tooth extraction.

Keywords: Atraumatic extraction, Extraction forceps, Newer advancements, Operative complication, Physics forceps.

ABSTRACT

Comprehensive research has shown that mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, reverse swallowing, and thumb sucking are known as incorrect myofunctional habits that are the real causes of malocclusion. These habits limit the child’s craniofacial development resulting in orthodontic problems. Myobraces are the orthodontic appliances that are preformed functional orthodontic device, especially used in interceptive orthodontic cases. Its mechanism of action is a combination of a functional device, positioners, and a myofunctional therapy device. These appliances straighten the teeth as well as correct the development of jaws and any adverse oral habits that are caused due to underdeveloped jaws. The purpose of this study is to describe the appliance, in particular its structural characteristics and its mechanism of action.

Keywords: Myobraces, Myofunctional, Trainer system.

ABSTRACT

A pediatric facial trauma patient provides several different considerations that are not present in an adult. First, the pediatric patient has the advantage of an accelerated ability to heal in a very short time with few complications, aided by the well-vascularized tissues of the face. Second, through the assistance of growth and an inherent ability to adapt, recovery of damaged orofacial tissues and function is much better than in adults. The aim of this study was to prospectively analyze the effect of open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) for treating various pediatric mandibular fractures and evaluating the advantages and disadvantages of ORIF along with the assessment of any complications in a series of 10 cases. We also reviewed various papers on pediatric mandibular fractures.

Keywords: Closed reduction, Malunion, ORIF, Pediatric mandibular fractures, Plate and screw system.

ABSTRACT

Surgical removal of benign or malignant tumors, congenital malformation, and trauma may lead to acquired maxillary defects. Surgery or trauma can result in cosmetic, functional, and psychological impairment greatly affecting the patient’s quality of life (QoL). Surgical reconstruction of the maxillary defects can be carried out by using either a temporal flap or a wide range of microvascularized flaps. Rehabilitation via palatal obturators to obturate a palatal defect in a dentulous or edentulous patient is one of the choices in restoring masticatory function and improving speech, deglutition, and facial appearance. Rehabilitation of such patients is quite challenging and requires a multidisciplinary team approach for comprehensive care and optimal posttreatment functional outcomes. Hence, it is crucial to work in close collaboration with the team members who make the prosthesis and who evaluate the case for planning the surgical procedures and obtaining the necessary anatomical and functional information.

Keywords: Acquired defects, Hollow obturators, Maxillectomy, Prosthetic rehabilitation.

ABSTRACT

The most common endodontic mishap that eventually occurs during any root canal therapy is the separation of instrument inside the canal. The separated instrument influences the final outcome and prognosis of the root canal therapy. It hinders the cleaning and shaping procedures as well as the irrigation of the canal portion apical to the level of obstruction. When an attempt to bypass such a fragment becomes difficult, it is advised to retrieve it by mechanical devices. This clinical case report describes the usage of three different techniques for retrieval of separated instrument.

Keywords: Braiding technique, Instrument retrieval, Instrument separation.

ABSTRACT

Infection of the deep facial spaces of the head and neck still represents a major challenge in hospitals. Although the complications are rare, they are serious and life threatening. The most critical point in the diagnosis of the facial space infections is the understanding of the common and uncommon signs and symptoms. Patients will often present with systemic signs and symptoms, such as fever, chills, malaise, and loss of appetite. Here, we demonstrate the benefit of one small incision approach to the multiple facial space infections with regard to the procedure time, postoperative recovery time, and the size and number of the scar formation.

Keywords: Facial spaces, Infections, Radiological examination.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Mechanical plaque control is the most effective method for preventing periodontal disease and dental caries. The various designs of toothbrushes available in the market often put the common man in dilemma about the best design, and they often seek professional advice on this matter.

Aim: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the plaque removal efficacy of two different toothbrush bristle design.

Materials and methods: The present study comprised 40 participants. Participants were randomly allotted as group I: Toothbrush with a flat bristle arrangement, and group II: Toothbrush with zigzag bristle arrangement. Baseline and after-intervention clinical examination was carried out by a single calibrated examiner to assess plaque by using Turesky-Gilmore-Glickman modification of Quigley-Hein Plaque Index.

Results: There was no statistically significant difference between groups I and II at baseline and after intervention (0.141). Furthermore, there was a statistically significant difference between the baseline and after-intervention score in both groups I (0.0001***) and II (0.004**).

Conclusion: The present study concluded that there was no superior toothbrush bristle design found. The individual skills are more concerned in plaque removal efficacy than the bristle design.

ABSTRACT

Individual identification is an important aspect in mass disasters, road accidents, air crashes, and fire accidents, where victim’s bodies are mutilated beyond recognition. Forensics uses methods like anthropological, radiological, and deoxyribonucleic acid matching for identification of deceased individual’s gender. Maxillary sinus, the largest air sinus of body located in the maxilla, is known to help in differentiating ethnic origin and also gender of individual. We attempted to utilize various dimensions of maxillary sinus on lateral cephalogram to establish the gender. A total of 20 male and 20 female patients of age between 25 and 40 years were recruited for the study. Dimensions of maxillary sinus were measured on lateral cephalogram using Slidex image analysis software. Dimensions of maxillary sinus within our study showed no statistically significant difference in height and length of maxillary sinus among males and females.

Keywords: Forensic, Gender differentiation, Lateral cephalogram, Maxillary sinus, Sex determination.
