Gingival Prosthesis-A Case Report
Author:Priyalatha Suvvati, Sivaram Cherukuri, Ravi Kumar Chitturi, Harshitha Garlapati
Volume: 2 | Issue no: 3-2016 | Pagination: 94-97
?A charming smile can open the doors and knock down barriers that stand between you and a fuller richer life?. However, not all the beautiful people were born that way. Many have taken the advantage of plastic surgery as well as cosmetic surgery. The harmony of the smile is determined not only by shape, position and colour of tooth but also by the gingival tissues. Gingival tissues often undergo pathologic changes leading to gingival recession, black triangles. Management of gingival recession class 1 and class 11 can be managed surgically whereas severe and extensive recession in multiple teeth can be managed non surgically with a gingival prosthesis.1 Here is a case report in which a removable gingival prosthesis was used.
Ocular Prosthesis: A Case Report
Author:Faris Mohammed Shafi, Nishna Pradeep, Sreekumar
Volume: 2 | Issue no: 3-2016 | Pagination: 92-93
An ocular prosthesis or artificial eye (a type of craniofacial prosthesis) replaces an absent natural eye following, an enucleation, evisceration: or orbital exenteration. The rehabilitation of a patient who has suffered the psychological trauma of an ocular loss requires a prosthesis that will provide the optimum cosmetic and functional result.
Oral Rehabilitation Of Hypohidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia ? A Case Report And Review
Author:Chetan Patidar, Anand Shigli, Divya S Sharma, Vinaya K Kulkarni, Sanjay Sharma
Volume: 2 | Issue no: 3-2016 | Pagination: 88-91
Ectodermal dysplasia is a hereditary disorder that occurs due to consequence of disturbances in the ectoderm of the developing embryo. It is usually accompanied by lack of sweat glands and a partial or complete absence of primary and/or permanent dentition. A case report illustrating the prosthetic rehabilitation by flexible and removable partial denture for a girl child of 9 years with Ectodermal dysplasia associated with congenitally missing primary and permanent teeth, mid facial defect and dental caries is presented. However oral rehabilitation of such case particularly in a child is often difficult, treatment should be accomplished by a multidisciplinary team
?Endodontic Management Of Two Radix Entomolaris Cases Having Different Anatomic Diversities?
Author:Akash Kumar Baranwal
Volume: 2 | Issue no: 3-2016 | Pagination: 83-87
The knowledge of root canal anatomy and its variations may contribute to endodontic treatment success. It is known that the mandibular first molar may have different anatomical variations. A Radix Entomolaris (RE) with two distal roots is an interesting example of such anatomic diversity. The presenc
??Assessment Of Salivary Alpha Amylase Level In Subjects With Diabetes Mellitus -A Cross Sectional Study??
Author:Chethan J, Priyanka Bb, Sarfaraz Hassan
Volume: 2 | Issue no: 3-2016 | Pagination: 79-82
Objectives: The objective of the study was to assess the salivary alpha amylase level in diabetic patient as well as normal individuals using spectrophotometry method. Materials and methods: The present study was conducted among 140 subjects of 35-60yrs of age. The Subjects with diabetes mellitus based on inclusion and exclusion criteria and normal subjects were selected. And the saliva sample was collected from the subjects and salivary alpha amylase level was assessed using spectrophotometry method. Results: The Results of the salivary alpha amylase level in diabetes mellitus group was 2631.73 +77.17 μ/l and in normal group it was 1634.6+44.17 μ/l. Conclusion: The results of the present study showed significant increase in the salivary alpha amylase levels in diabetes mellitus group, as compared to normal group. Further studies has to be done with the larger sample size to know the exact range of salivary alpha amylase in normal subjects as well as in diabetes mellitus subjects.
Zirconia - A Boon To Prosthodontics
Author:Archana Nagpal, Neha Vaidya, Shivani Parmar, Anisha Kundal
Volume: 2 | Issue no: 3-2016 | Pagination: 69-72
With the expansion of porcelain-fused to- metal (PFM) procedures in the early sixties, metal?ceramic restorations have represented the ?gold standard? for prosthetic dentistry, because of their good mechanical properties and quite pleasing esthetic results, along with an acceptable quality of their marginal and internal adaptation. The polycrystalline zirconium dioxide (zirconia) resulted valuable in prosthodontics, due to its exceptional mechanical properties and improved esthetics compared to metal?ceramics1 . Zirconia is a ceramic material technically and an oxide chemically2 , insoluble in water and non-cytotoxic3 . Studies, both in vitro and in vivo, showed its low adhesion to bacteria, even lower than on titanium4 and favorable radio-opacity and a low corrosion potential1 . Pure, unalloyed zirconia is polymorphic and allotropic at ambient pressure, presenting three crystallographic shapes at different temperatures: cubic (c) (from 2680 ◦C, the melting point, to 2370 ◦C); tetragonal (t) (from 2370 ◦C to 1170 ◦C); monoclinic (m) (from1170 ◦C to room temperature)5 . Upon cooling when the spontaneous transformation from the (t)phase to the more stable (m) phase occurs, there is noticeable increase in the volume of the crystals (4?5%) that results in outstanding property of the zirconia6 . When alloyed with other ?cubic? oxides like MgO, CaO, Y2O3 and CeO2 (so-called ?stabilizers?), the phase transformation could be prevented, allowing the zirconia crystals to be in their tetragonal or cubic shape at room temperature, in a thermodynamically metastable state. The subsequent volume increase of the crystals, inhibited by the surrounding ones, results in a favorable compressive stress that acts as a crack-limiter1 . Such a mechanism has been termed as ?transformation toughening? or ?phase transformation toughening? (PTT)7 and, along with the grain size of zirconia material, can explain why zirconia presents the highest flexural strength and fracture toughness compared to all the other ceramics.
Inclined Plane Effect And Leverage Perspectives Of Stable Dentures-An Overview
Author:D. Chalapathi Rao, Y. Ravi Shankar, D. Naveen, Manish Khan Katyayan, Preeti Agarwal Katyayan
Volume: 2 | Issue no: 3-2016 | Pagination: 63-68
The stability of complete dentures is of multifactorial origin. The unseating of the complete dentures results in irritation, ulceration of the underlying structures leading to discomfort. The dentist-engineer should take into consideration factors like inclined plane and leverage as they are related to the stability of complete dentures. The present review was conducted after an extensive literature search of peer reviewed journals, textbooks and extracting information related to the factors influencing stability of complete dentures. This article is a comprehensive compilation on the inclined plane and leverage factors affecting stability of the complete denture.
Proglider Files ? Next Step In Glide Path Preparation
Author:Hc Baranwal, Akash Kumar Baranwal
Volume: 2 | Issue no: 3-2016 | Pagination: 60-62
As the field of Endodontics has become revolutionized with development of rotary Ni-Ti files, the advancements of these file systems have improved the cleaning & shaping of root canal with time. Before using these Ni-Ti rotary instruments, a glide path preparation within canal seems to be very necessary. The endodontic glide path is a smooth radicular tunnel from canal orifice to physiologic apical terminus (apical foramina constriction). Glide Path can be generated either with stainless steel file system or rotary Ni-Ti Files. Recently, M -wire technology has been incorporated in endodontic file systems, which offers greater flexibility and resistance against cyclic fatigue. So, the present review article introduces the Proglider Glide path File (Dentsply mallifer) which is the next step in glide path management with progressive taper and M-Wire metallurgy, securing canals that have never been easier or safer.
Iatrosedation- A Solution To Maladaptive Complete Denture Patients
Author:Navreet Sandhu, Bhupinder Kaur, Sarabjeet Singh
Volume: 2 | Issue no: 2-2016 | Pagination: 58-59
Behavioral problems are commonly associated with complete denture therapy. There are easily satisfied patients at one end, while at the other end are patients who become office fixtures, complaining of excessive discomfort, poor function and visit repeatedly for adjustments. Some patients are maladaptive because neurological or neuromuscular deficits preclude successful wearing of dentures. Others are emotionally maladaptive. For these patients, effective verbal and nonverbal communication in the form of an iatrosedative interview is significant in maximizing an effective doctor/patient relationship and minimizing the maladaptive response.
