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

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: The connection between the nutritional status and dental caries in children is controversial. The present study was undertaken to assess the association between nutritional status and dental caries among 12- to 15-year-old government schoolchildren in rural areas of Udaipur.

Materials and methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted among 12- to 15-year-old government schoolchildren. Multistage sampling was done and 1,520 sample size was obtained. Chisquare test was used to find association between dental caries and nutritional status. For all tests, confidence interval and p-value were set at 95% and ≤0.05 respectively.

Results: All the students were divided according to their age of 12 to 15 years. Findings between body mass index and dental caries were found to be statistically significant, with a p-value of 0.000 (p < 0.01).

Conclusion: Our research concluded that underweight children were found to have higher caries status than overweight subjects. Hence, it is important to screen the common health problems and the estimation of nutritional condition which should be an important part of health services in schools of rural areas. More studies and health programs should be necessary to arrange to improve the nutritional status and health of rural schoolchildren.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Self-medication is the treatment of common health issues with pharmaceuticals particularly planned/ designed and labeled for use without medical supervision and endorsed as protected and effective for such use. Medicines for self-medication are frequently called “nonprescription” or “over the counter” and are accessible without a specialist’s prescription through pharmacies.

Objective: To assess the prevalence of self-medication practices for oral health problems among patients attending dental hospital, Udaipur, Rajasthan.

Materials and methods: A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted among 220 patients attending the dental hospital, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. Study population consisted of patient attending the OPD of Pacific Dental College & Hospital, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. Descriptive statistics included computation of percentages that was used to calculate the frequencies related to self-medication practices for oral health problems among dental patients.

Results: This study was carried out among 220 subjects, out of which 56.8% (n = 125) were males and 43.2% (n = 95) were females. It was observed that majority of the participants practice self-medication 70% (n = 154) and 54.5% (n = 120) used same prescription as family members.

Conclusion: Self-medication is highly prevalent among the patients attending the dental hospital as medications are effortlessly accessible at the medical store and they can easily take the medicine without the prescription of the doctor or specialist, which is wrong on the part of the community as they are not aware of the harmful effects of medications at time. To create awareness about the drug reactions and its side effects due to self-medication, health education sessions should be conducted. Strict laws should also be planned by the concerned experts or authorities that without prescription of doctors no medicine and prescription should be given to anyone at the medical store or pharmacy.

Keywords: Oral health problems, Pharmacists, Self-medication, Udaipur city.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: The reduced masticatory ability may lead to changes in dietary selection with risk of an impaired nutritional status, especially in elderly complete denture (CD) wearers. Elderly denture wearers are vulnerable to compromised nutritional health due to various factors, including physiologic, psychosocial, oral, functional, medical, and dietary supplementation.

Aim: The present study aims to evaluate the nutritional status of elderly patients with different prosthodontic treatment.

Materials and methods: A total of 150 participants were involved in the study. Examination of dentition involved assessment of distribution of teeth (distal extension case or not), number of missing teeth in the edentulous area, and the type of prosthetic treatment recommended. For measuring nutritional assessment, detailed information about quantity of foods and nutrients consumed was collected. Participants were asked to keep a last-three-meals diary record of all food and drink consumed, both in and out of home in terms of standard bowl, cup, glass, teaspoon, and tablespoon sizes. Independent Student’s t test and Tukey’s test were used to assess the level of significance.

Results: Out of 150 participants, 46.7% were completely edentulous and 53.3% were partially edentulous. A total of 70 participants were recommended for CD, 40 for fixed partial denture, 26 for distal extension denture prosthesis, and 14 for tooth-supported denture prosthesis. The CD group showed the highest alteration in the mean values than partial denture group.

Conclusion: The present study concluded that prosthetic rehabilitation becomes increasingly important as the level of edentulism increases to improve dietary habits, and nutrition forms an integral part of the prosthodontic treatment in maintaining the health of the body among elderly population.

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.

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.
