ABSTRACT

Ludwig’s angina is a form of severe diffuse cellulitis that presents an acute onset and spreads rapidly, bilaterally affecting the submandibular, sublingual, and submental spaces resulting in a state of emergency. Early diagnosis and immediate treatment planning could be a life-saving procedure. Here, we report a case of Ludwig’s angina successfully treated by surgical decompression under antibiotic coverage.

Keywords: Ludwig’s angina, Management, Odontogenic infection.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: The objective of this article is to highlight the importance of having a thorough knowledge about the root canal anatomy and the possibility of extra root/root canal.

Materials and methods: This case report presents the endodontic management of a left mandibular second molar with four roots and five canals.

Results: The clinical and radiographic diagnosis shows the existence of four roots and five canals (two in distobuccal root, one in distolingual root, one in mesiobuccal root, and one in mesiolingual root) in mandibular second molar.

Conclusion: Anatomic variation in the number of roots and root canals can occur in any tooth. Close examination of radiographs taken from different angles and careful evaluation of the internal anatomy of teeth is essential or else root canal treatment is likely to fail if extra roots or root canals are not detected.

Keywords: Extra root/root canal, Four-rooted mandibular second molar and multiple angulation radiograph, Mandibular second molar.

ABSTRACT

Background: The purpose of this clinical trial was to compare the outcome of gingival recession technique using the coronally advanced flap (CAF) with platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and amniotic membrane.

Materials and methods: About 15 patients with bilateral Miller class I buccal gingival recessions (4-5 mm) in maxillary and mandibular canines were selected. The recessions were randomly assigned to receive either the CAF with PRF or the CAF with amniotic membrane. Recession height (RH), recession width (RW), width of keratinized tissue (WKT), thickness of keratinized tissue (TKT), probing depth (PD), and clinical attachment level (CAL) were measured at baseline as well as 6 months postsurgery. Patient satisfaction with esthetics, root sensitivity, and postoperative pain was also evaluated.

Results: The average percentages of root coverage for CAF with PRF and CAF with amniotic membrane were 92.95% and 97.40% (p < 0.05) respectively, and the complete root coverage observed was 56.94% and 76.47% respectively. The CAF with amniotic membrane showed a statistically signi.cant increase in TKT (p < 0.05). There were no signi.cant differences between the two groups with regard to RH, RW, WKT, PD, and CAL. The esthetic condition after both treatments was considered satisfactory by the patients.

Conclusion: The outcome of this study reflects that CAF with PRF and amniotic membrane can be successfully used to treat class I gingival recession.

Keywords: Amniotic membrane, Coronally advanced flap, Gingival recession, Platelet-rich fibrin.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To compare the desensitizing efficacy of two commercially available dentifrices, one containing Novamin technology (calcium sodium phosphosilicate, a bioactive glass) and the other containing Pro-Argin technology (arginine and calcium carbonate) when applied after scaling and root planing.

Materials and methods: About 30 subjects having at least two sensitive teeth (total 60 sites) after scaling and root planing were included in this study and randomly divided into two groups, each containing 15 patients: Group I received Pro-Argin technology (arginine and calcium carbonate) and group II received Novamin technology (calcium sodium phosphosilicate, a bioactive glass) containing desensitizing toothpaste. The sensitive teeth were selected on the basis of Schiff cold air sensitivity scale (SCASS) with an air blast hypersensitivity score of 2 or 3 and cold water test with visual analog scale (VAS) score of 4 to 10 responses. The subjects’ response was recorded at baseline (i.e., immediately after treatment) and after 1, 2, and 4 weeks respectively, using the SCASS and VAS scale.

Results: Using Mann-Whitney test, we found no statistically significant differences in the score between the two desensitizing toothpastes. But, there was a statistically significant difference between the baseline and follow-up scores done consecutively for individual toothpastes.

Conclusion: Therefore, within the limitations of the study, we found no statistically significant difference in the efficacy of the two desensitizing toothpastes.

Keywords: Dentifrices, Novamin technology, Visual analog scale.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: The preservation of bone volume immediately after tooth removal is necessary to optimize the success of implant placement in terms of esthetics and function. The objectives of this study were to compare the ability of Choukroun’s platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) versus CollaPlug (Zimmer) in maintaining the buccal bone height of sockets following extractions in patients.

Materials and methods: Twenty patients who required tooth extraction and implant placement were enrolled in this study. The patients were randomly divided into two groups. They are group I PRF group and group II CollaPlug group. The vertical buccal crestal bone heights were measured immediately after extraction and 4 months postextraction and implants were placed.

Results: The buccal crestal bone level in the CollaPlug group had a baseline mean of 4.67 ± 0.54 and a postmean of 6.98 ± 0.60, whereas in the PRF group baseline mean was 5.43 ± 0.47 and postmean was 6.93 ± 0.55. The bone resorption was found in both the groups (2.31 mm for CollaPlug and 1.5 mm for PRF), in agreement with previous studies. However, there was increased bone loss in CollaPlug group compared with PRF group, which was found statistically significant.

Conclusion: In conclusion, within the limits of the present study, the two tested socket preservation materials seem to be effective in the treatment of extraction sockets, even though the design of the study did not allow us to evaluate to what extent the clinical improvement could be attributed to the PRF per se, since a negative control was not included in this investigation. However, preparation of PRF is not very cumbersome and inexpensive, which makes it a better socket preservation material than CollaPlug.

Keywords: Choukroun’s platelet-rich fibrin, CollaPlug (Zimmer), Vertical buccal crestal bone heights.

ABSTRACT

In the past, shaping of root canals was done using stainless steel (SS) hand files. The introduction of rotary instrumentation has revolutionized the art and science of endodontic practice in the last decade with predictable success. The rotary files have been subjected to constant evolution in the form of metallurgy, design features, and the manner in which these instruments are driven (rotary/reciprocation), etc., resulting in revolution, both within the canal and in the area of contemporary endodontics. The purpose of this review is to identify publications regarding the evaluation, to present comprehensive and critical summaries of current knowledge, and to provide an update of the rotary and reciprocating concept, which is new and which is true.

Keywords: Reciproc, Reciprocating motion, Rotary motion, Single file, WaveOne.

ABSTRACT

Dental calculus is a hard deposit that is formed by calcification of dental plaque primarily composed of calcium phosphate mineral salts which is deposited on natural teeth and restorations and is covered by a layer of unmineralized plaque. These hard deposits may form coronal to or apical to the gingival margin, hence named accordingly as supragingival and subgingival calculus respectively. The distribution of calculus is very versatile and it differs from individual to individual, from tooth to tooth, and from surface to surface. So, a thorough knowledge on prevalence of calculus is important for the clinician in outlining the treatment plan. It is a well-known fact that calculus is itself not an inducing agent for pathological changes that occur in gingival tissues; instead it is covered by a layer of unmineralized plaque which is proven to be the key etiological agent involved in these pathogenic mechanisms. But, attributing to the porosity of calculus and its ability to retain bacterial antigens makes it an important contributing factor in initiating and accentuating periodontal disease progression. In this review, we made an attempt to discuss various aspects of calculus composition, its formation, and its etiological significance in periodontal disease progression.

Keywords: Calculus, Gingival margin, Periodontal diseases, Prevalence, Unmineralized plaque.

ABSTRACT

Aims: This article addresses the clinical presentation, diagnosis, histological features, and treatment of two cases of fibroma.

Background: Fibromas are proliferative fibrous lesions of the gingiva and oral mucosa that may cause esthetic and functional problems. Fibrous hyperplasia and fibroepithelial hyperplasia are histological variants of these nonneoplastic lesions.

Case description: Case 1 demonstrated an overgrowth in the lower back tooth region. Case 2 was present at the corner of the lip mucosa. Both the growths were pale in color, sessile, painless, and firm in consistency. Lesions caused discomfort during chewing of food. Thus, both the lesions were excised using diode laser in continuous mode and sent for histopathological assessment.

Conclusion: These lesions are a result of trauma/chronic irritation and arise from cells of oral mucous membrane or periosteum.

Clinical significance: The cases demonstrate the need for proper diagnosis, role of biopsy, and histologic evaluation in the management of these lesions.

Keywords: Case series, Diode laser, Fibroepithelial hyperplasia, Traumatic fibroma.

ABSTRACT

Increasing esthetic demands of the modern era has converted modern dentistry to pink and white esthetic dentistry. One of the most difficult goals in the regeneration of the soft tissues is the reconstruction of interdental papilla. A number of techniques have been tried, but the results still lack predictability. Nonsurgical techniques include repeated curettage of the interdental papilla, orthodontic and restorative correction, and hyaluronic acid application, while surgical techniques include pedicle and free gingival graft, connective tissue grafts, and subepithelial connective tissue graft. This article presents a report of two cases where a combination of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and pedicle graft was utilized to retain maximum vascularity and minimize scar tissue formation. The atraumatic management of the tissues with a pouch-like design avoids tension and pressure and is critical for the success of the procedure. Adequate fill of the interdental papilla was observed in both the cases and the results were stable up to 6 months.

Keywords: Hyaluronic acid, Interdental papilla, Plateletderived growth factor, Platelet-rich fibrin, Transforming growth factor-beta.

ABSTRACT

The maxilla is made up of spongy bone and has one of the least dense bones in oral cavity. Periodontal disease-stimulated teeth loss causes accentuated bone deficiency, both in height and in width by significant resorption of the alveolar bone. Bone remodeling in the region is further complicated by postextraction bone resorption, pneumatization of maxillary sinus, and poor quality of residual alveolar bone.
Indirect sinus augmentation is an effective solution for this problem. This case report presents the rehabilitation of maxillary premolar by using indirect sinus lift with implant placement where the bone height and bone width was compromised.

Keywords: Implant placement posterior maxilla, Indirect sinus lift, Maxillary sinus.
