Bonded Ceramic Inlays Or Full Coverage Crowns - A Review And Case Report
Author:Anuya Patankar, Ramandeep Kaur Sandhu, Raman Sandhu, Mohit Kheur
Volume: 3 | Issue no: 2-2015 | Pagination: 217-219
The esthetic demands of the patient have to be combined with conservative treatment procedures to deliver functional restorationsfor endodontically treated teeth. Ceramic inlays, fabricated in lithium dislicate material, satisfy both these requirements as post-endodontic restorations. This paper demonstrates a simple, esthetic and conservative alternative to full coverage crowns for the restoration of endodontically treated teeth.
Creating Smiles- The Holistic Way!! - Orthodontic- Surgical Correction Of Bimaxillary Protrusion
Author:Ashutosh Shetty, Priyanka Basu, Vivek Bhaskar, U.S. Krishna Nayak
Volume: 3 | Issue no: 2-2015 | Pagination: 211-216
Often many patients cannot be treated by orthodontics alone, and need the combined efforts of orthodontics and orthognathic surgery. Such patients are treated in three phases- a phase of pre surgical orthodontics that involves basically decompensating the dentition, followed by the surgery, which is then finished with final detailing of the occlusion. This article is a case report of a skeletal bimaxillary protrusion patient, who was treated with bi- jaw surgery.

Author:Shivanand Aspalli, Nagappa G, Aditi S. Jain
Volume: 3 | Issue no: 2-2015 | Pagination: 207-210
Introduction: Loss of interdental papilla marks phonetics, functional and esthetic problem. Surgical techniques are diverse, but none have given predictable results. Aim: The purpose of this case report is to present reconstruction of papilla by using platelet rich fibrin membrane in maxillary anterior region. Methodology: 30yr old male patient reported with an unesthetic smile due to loss of interdental papilla in the maxillary left central and lateral incisor region since 6 months. The treatment was planned for reconstruction of lost interdental papilla using PRF. A pouch was created with a semilunar incision, PRF was prepared and inserted into the pouch and the entire gingivopapillary unit was displaced coronally. Conclusion: Optimal fill was noted at 1, 3 and 6 months postoperatively with excellent esthetic outcome.Use of PRF and proper technique may thus be the panacea for interdental papilla augmentation.
Total Mandibulectomy In A Patient With Verrucous Carcinoma Turning Into Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Oral Cavity: A Rare Case Report
Author:Chandrashekhar R. Bande, Dinesh Mohale, Manjiri Thakur, Pravin Lambade
Volume: 3 | Issue no: 2-2015 | Pagination: 202-206
Verrucous Carcinoma is a rare type of low grade, well differentiated squamous cell carcinoma. The author herein reports a case of squamous cell carcinoma arising within verrucous carcinoma of mandible. A 65-year old women reported to hospital with the history of swelling over the gums of lower jaw since 1yr. Her swelling was painless and gradually had spread to the whole mandible. Incisional biopsy and histopathologic examination revealed verrucous carcinoma which was treated with total Mandibulectomy.
Over Denture Using Access Post System: An Alternative Solution For Increasing Retention
Author:Vankadara Sivakumar, R. B. Hallikerimath, Ajinkya Patil, Megha Sethi
Volume: 3 | Issue no: 2-2015 | Pagination: 199-201
One of the most common problems encountered by edentulous patients is lack of retention and stability of prosthesis with decreased masticatory efficiency. An over denture treatment is one of the inevitable solutionsfor this condition. This case report highlights the use of an ?Access post over denture system? which is more advantageous over the conventional tooth supported over dentures. The access post over denture fabricated was well retentive and esthetic serving as a conservative approach to root preservation.
Odontogenic Keratocyst Of The Angle And Ramus Of The Mandible - A Case Report
Author:Shaveta Garg, M.K Sunil, Ashwarya Trivedi, Neetu Singla
Volume: 3 | Issue no: 2-2015 | Pagination: 195-198
The Odontogenic Keratocyst (OKC), first described by Phillipsen in 1956, has been reclassified as odontogenic neoplasm and has been renamed as Keratocystic Odontogenic Tumor (KCOT) as reported in WHO classification of head and neck tumors in 2005. Odontogenic keratocysts are benign intraosseous tumors of odontogenic origin that occur most commonly in the jaw. In particular, they have a predilection for the angle and ascending ramus of the mandible. The recurrent rate of odontogenic keratocyst is 25 ? 30 percent. A case of odontogenic keratocyst in 60 years old patient is presented involving mandibular third molar ramus area which was recurred after 3 years.
Occlusal Guiding Flange Prosthesis For Management Of Hemimandibulectomy- A Case Report
Author:Sumit Pathak, Saloni Deol, Amit Jayna
Volume: 3 | Issue no: 2-2015 | Pagination: 192-194
Surgical resection of the mandible due to presence of benign or malignant tumor is the most common. Depending upon the location and extent of the tumor in the mandible, various surgical treatment modalities like marginal, segmental, hemi, subtotal, or total mandibulectomy can be performed. Mandibular discontinuity defects present a major challenge to the rehabilitation team and to maxillofacial prosthodontist. Discontinuity of mandible after resection destroys balance and symmetry which leads to altered mandibular movements and deviation of the residual fragment towards the defective side. Variety of materials and techniques have used for the construction of prosthetic replacement of the acquired surgical defects. This case report describes prosthodontic management of a patient who has undergone hemi-mandibulectomy with mandibular guide flange prosthesis. To aid in moving the mandible normally without deviation during functions like speech and mastication.

Volume: 3 | Issue no: 2-2015 | Pagination: 188-191
Preservation of tooth is one of the major goals of an Endodontist. This goal can be acquired either by non surgical or surgical approach. Root resection is one of the surgical approaches for preservation of molars with furcation involvement. This procedure results in a unique environment which is dictated by the contours of the remaining roots and the residual furcation between them. Root resorption is a viable treatment option to salvage and retain a part of multirooted teeth. This case report illustrates prognosis of root resection after completion of endodontic therapy for managing a case of root resorption. This case shows external root resorption of the distobuccal root of right maxillary first molar. Due to strategic value of maxillary first molar, it was decided to employ root resection. After completion of endodontic therapy root resection was carried out. After 6 months, the absence of periradicular radiolucent lesions, periodontal pocket, pain, and swelling indicated a successful outcome of root resection.

Author:Pulivarthi Sushma, Sowbhagya M.B, Balaji P, Mahesh Kumar T.S
Volume: 3 | Issue no: 2-2015 | Pagination: 183-187
In the jaws, the most common type of developmental odontogenic cyst is dentigerous cyst, mostly affecting the impacted mandibular third molars and permanent maxillary canines. They are often noted as an incidental finding on radiographs as unilocular radiolucency with well-defined sclerotic border which encircles the crown of an unerupted tooth as most of these dentigerous cysts are clinically asymptomatic. Long standing cases of dentigerous cysts can progress to either ameloblastoma or squamous cell carcinoma or mucoepidermoid carcinoma. Henceforth, an early clinical and radiographic detection of the cyst plays a vital role so that apt treatment modalities can be carried out which will prevent or decrease the morbidity. With this above background, we hereby report an enticing case of dentigerous cyst which was incidentally observed in conventional radiographs and to evaluate further extension and nature of lesion, a conebeam computed tomography (CBCT) of jaw was taken.
Revascularization Of A Necrotic, Infected, Immature Permanent Molar With Apical Periodontitis: A Case Report
Author:Pallavi Vashisth, Vatsala V, Sathyajith Naik, Mousumi Goswami Singh
Volume: 3 | Issue no: 2-2015 | Pagination: 180-182
The traditional techniques of chemo-mechanical instrumentation and disinfection of the root canal system used in mature teeth are limited by the immature tooth?s anatomy. The open apex is difficult or impossible to seal with conventional root filling methods because of the absence of an apical stop. Furthermore, the arrested development of the dentinal walls at the time of pulp necrosis leaves a weak tooth with thin dentinal walls that are susceptible to fracture. The purpose of the paper is to present the case of a patient wherein revascularization of the necrotic infected pulp space of an immature permanent mandibular molar was induced by stimulation of a blood clot from the periapical tissues into the canal space. The treatment approach can help rescue infected immature teeth by physiologically strengthening the root walls.
