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

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

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

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

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

India is the largest democracy and the second most populated country in the world. However, more than 70% of the people of India are residing in the villages. As far as dentists and their availability are concerned, to this huge population, the demand and supply ratio is far inadequate and insufficient. The dentists/ population ratio of India, on date, is 1:10,000. However, the reality is that in rural India, 1 dentist is serving over a population of 250,000. Thus, the real picture is not that simple as it seems. As we are about to step into the next decade, there lies an urgent need to analyze the dental work force of the country and to study the scope and future of dentistry in the coming years. Oral public health issues are grossly neglected in a developing country like India, the primary reason to which is the nonlife-threatening nature of oral health problems. Indian state governments are already financially overburdened to acknowledge the burden of orodental problems and its connection with the systemic health. State governments lack the capability to provide oral health services to all. So this review is mainly focusing on the current issues and strategies on dental workforce.

ABSTRACT

Background and objectives: The professional moral of a dental surgeon is not only to treat the oral diseases of the community but also to serve its other legal services. Forensic odontology needs dental records for forensic identification, involving different and less-known techniques. These data can probably be fast and reliable processes in comforting the system and a person’s life.

Keywords: Cheiloscopy, Forensic identification, Forensic odontology, Lip prints.

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

Tooth surfaces with pits and fissures are particularly vulnerable to caries development. With the permanent dentition, caries involving the occlusal surfaces account for almost 60% of total caries in children and adolescents, although occlusal surfaces account for only 12.5% of total tooth surface. Dental sealants are preventive dental treatment where pit and fissure of primary or permanent molar and premolar are filled with plastic material. Fissure sealants (FSs) prevent the early intervention of dental caries before it reaches to end-stage called as cavitations. Mainly, the pit and fissure sealants (PFS) are to prevent developing caries, which is achieved by blocking the surface, and prevents bacteria from getting stuck to it.

Keywords: Cost-effectiveness, Occlusal surfaces, Pit and fissure sealants, Preventive dentistry.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To determine the linear apical microleakage of various obturation techniques: Lateral condensation, single cone, obtura, calamus, and thermafil with different file systems using dye penetration.

Materials and methods: A total of 150 single canalled teeth were collected for this study. The teeth were prepared by three file systems and obturated with five obturation techniques. Dye penetration method was used for apical microleakage.

Results: Calamus and thermafil showed less leakage than other obturation techniques.

Conclusion: Both thermafil and calamus are reliable obturation techniques.

Keywords: Apical microleakage, Calamus, Lateral condenation, Obturation techniques, Thermafil.
