ABSTRACT

Today more than hundred years have passed since Dr Edward angle placed his first archwire into a patient’s mouth and orthodontics began. It was during that period many innovations did occur that have been explained in terms of art. As time passed scientifically based orthodontics evolved and we see from that time much new innovation in material science have sum uped with new treatment approach and modalities. However, when we turn around and see the developments and innovations in the material science, we stand with pride: but the urge to make treatment still more comfortable and less time consuming, have led us to the introduction of a plethora of new orthodontic materials and products that represent significant improvement over their predecessors. This article compiles all archwire from angle era till recent available newer archwire.

Keywords: Esthetic archwires, Newer archwires, Teflon coated archwires, Variety of archwires.

ABSTRACT

Correction of maxillary transverse discrepancy requires expansion of palate by combination of orthopedic and orthodontic movements. Isolated maxillary transverse deficiency can be treated either orthodontically or surgically with assisted rapid maxillary expansion (RME).
Nonsurgical expansion modalities include rapid maxillary expansion and slow maxillary expansion. Haas popularized the idea of orthodontic palatal expansion in the 1960s, and since then transverse deficiencies have been treated successfully in children and adolescents.
The use of palatal expanders in adults was widely frowned upon and was generally considered to be unsuccessful. Handelman published a clinical review in 1997, proving a nonsurgical expansion in adults was possible.

Keywords: Nonsurgical maxillary expansion, Palatal expansion, Rapid maxillary expansion.

ABSTRACT

Dental materials are stable and have greater durability if they do not react with the environment and remain passive. At the same time, it is hoped that the materials will be well accepted and will cause neither harm nor injury. This is an entirely negative approach to material tolerance and biocompatibility. This outlook hides the possibility through which positive gains can be achieved by using materials that behave in a more dynamic fashion in the environment in which they are placed. The current dental materials are improvised. The use of smart materials has made a great revolution in dentistry, which includes the use of restorative materials, such as smart composites, smart ceramics, compomers, resin-modified glass ionomer, amorphous calcium phosphate-releasing pit, and fissure sealants and other materials, such as orthodontic shape memory alloys, smart burs, etc.

Keywords: Biosmart dentistry, Fluoride release, Smart materials.

ABSTRACT

Ameloblastoma is a benign odontogenic neoplasm that frequently affects the mandible. The term “ameloblastoma” includes several clinicoradiological and histological types. Apart from the most commonly encountered clinicopathologic models, there are few variants, whose biological profile is unknown or not elicited. Among these types, unicystic ameloblastoma is the least encountered variant of ameloblastoma. Unicystic ameloblastoma refers to those cystic lesions that show clinical, radiographic, or gross features of a jaw cyst, but on histologic examination show a typical ameloblastomatous epithelium lining the cyst cavity with or without luminal and/or mural tumor proliferation. Ameloblastoma has been reported to arise from a dentigerous cyst on rare occasions. In this paper, a case of ameloblastoma arising from epithelium of a dentigerous cyst is presented in light of the histopathologic findings, providing evidence for ameloblastomatous change in the preexisting cyst in a 40-year-old female.

Keywords: Ameloblastoma, Benign, Dentigerous cyst, Multicystic.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: An intracanal medicament have an antibacterial effect on the root canal flora. The effectiveness of different available intracanal medicaments and search for new antibacterial agents to use as intracanal medicament to ensure success of our treatment is today’s need. Curcumin (diferuloymthane) main yellow bioactive component of turmeric has wide spectrum of biological actions and this provides a basis for exploring its endodontic applications.

Aim: To determine antibacterial efficacy of Curcuma longa (turmeric) against root canal microorganism and compare its efficacy with calcium hydroxide, calcium hydroxide+ turmeric and metapex.

Materials and methods: For an antibacterial assessment samples were divided into four groups as group 1 calcium hydroxide group 2 calcium hydroxide + turmeric oleoresin group 3 turmeric oleoresin group 4 metapex. Each group was tested against following root canal pathogens S. aureas, E. coli, E. feacalis by agar well diffusion method. Inhibition zone was recorded at 24, 48 and 72 hours. Results were tabulated and sent for statistical analysis.

Result: Maximum inhibition of E.feacalis, E.coli, S. aureas is shown by combination of turmeric oleoresin and calcium hydroxide, i.e., group 2 followed by group metapex and then calcium hydroxide.

Conclusion: Turmeric extract has substantial antibacterial effect and its combination with calcium hydroxide increases its antibacterial efficacy against all important root canal pathogens. So turmeric has great potential to be used as intracanal medicament

Keywords: Antimicrobial efficacy, Intracanal medicament, Turmeric oleoresin,

ABSTRACT

Objectives: Many series of side effects will be produced with the extraction of impacted lower third molar which including pain, swelling, inflammation, and trismus. Flap design is important to allow good visibility, reach to the impacted tooth, and for healing of the surgically created defect. This study aims at the evaluation and comparison of standard flap design with comma type of flap design used in the surgical extraction of impacted mandibular third molar and to objectively evaluate the merits and demerits of individual flap design.

Study design: In this study, 200 patients with bilateral mandibular third molars impaction of age group of 18 to 30 years were selected for the study, To reflect the mucoperiosteal flap on one side standard incision and on other side comma incision were used and, after which the steps are common in the removal of impacted third molars. Immediately on the postoperative days 1, 3 and 7, the postoperative parameters (pain, swelling and mouth opening were recorded. And periodontal status were recorded preoperatively, 1st month and 2nd month respectively.

Results and conclusion: The pain and swelling scores were found to be significantly lower in the surgical area with comma incisions which was recorded on days 1, 3 and 7 as compared to the area where standard incisions were made. In mouth opening, there was a sufficiently great difference seen between the two incisions on first postoperative day, but though there was clinical difference between the two incisions on day 3 and 7 there was no statistical significance.
The results of the study shows no lingual nerve paresthesia or any other morbidity hence, the new incision design should probably be made the conventional method, considering the less degree of postoperative complications encountered. although it may require some practice initially.

Clinical implications: Third molar impactions are common and usually associated with postoperative complications, like pain, swelling, trismus and pocket formation. Incision and flap design is important in healing wound and minimizing postoperative complications. Comma incision design has shown less postoperative complication in compare to standard incision

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Measurement of accurate vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO) is of prime importance to the dentist especially a prosthodontist. Though many methods have been proposed in recording VDO in the past but none of them fulfills the criteria of accuracy, reproducibility and ease. This study employs the use of length of fingers to measure VDO in Kashmiri population.

Materials and methods: The study was conducted on 60 dentulous subjects which include 30 males and 30 females in the age range of 18 to 25 years. Measurement of VDO and length of fingers was recorded using a digital vernier caliper. Correlation between VDO and length of fingers was studied using Spearman’s coefficient.

Result: Vertical dimension of occlusion was found to be almost the length of index finger in males and little finger in females in Kashmiri population.

Conclusion: The study revealed that length of index finger is almost equal to VDO in males and length of little finger is almost equal to VDO in females.

ABSTRACT

Dermatoglyphics is the scientific study of fingerprint patterns. Fingerprints are formed in early embryonic life, during the 10th to 16th weeks of intrauterine life and remain permanent during the whole life. Dermatoglyphics can be used as a diagnostic tool of genetically and nongenetically determined diseases. Thus, it can be used not only in the field of medicine but also in dentistry for the early identification or prediction of oral lesions and diseases. Hence the present paper reviews the application of dermatoglyphics in dentistry along with the advantages, limitations, and patterns of dermatoglyphics.

Keywords: Arch, Dermatoglyphics, Fingerprints, Loop, Whorl.

ABSTRACT

Buccal exostoses are benign, broad-based surface masses of the facial aspect of the maxilla and less commonly, the mandible. It is believed that this is one way, bone responds to stresses applied to it. They begin to develop in the early adulthood and may slowly enlarge over the years. To the best of our knowledge, it is the second reported case of single buccal exostosis in mandibular molar region and first of its kind in edentulous mandible. The following paper presents a very rare and unique case of buccal-sided mandibular molar exostosis in an edentulous mandible of an old female and its surgical management.

Keywords: Buccal exostosis, Edentulous mandible, Torus mandibularis.
