ABSTRACT

Periapical granuloma is a relatively common lesion or growth consisting of a proliferating mass of granulation tissue and bacteria that form in response to dead tissue in the pulp chamber of the tooth. The death of the pulp may be due to extensive decay, deep restorations, or trauma to the tooth. It is considered a reactive inflammatory process resulting from chronic irritation originating from the root canal system of the affected root. Periapical granuloma mainly consists of granulation tissue with alveolar bone loss and a large number of T lymphocytes and monocytes/macrophages together with a small number of B lymphocytes and polymorpho-nuclear leukocytes.

Keywords: Dental caries, Dental granuloma, Periapical granuloma.

ABSTRACT

Traumatic dental injuries like tooth luxation, avulsion, fracture or laceration of soft tissue often occurs in the children and young adults due to various etiological factors. Viable periodontal ligament (PL) cells are required for PL healing of avulsed teeth following replantation. If immediate replantation cannot be accomplished, the ability of PL progenitor cells to reproduce (clonogenic capacity) and recolonize the wound may be extended by prevention of desiccation and storage in physiological media. Recent research has led to the development of storage media that produce conditions that closely resemble the original socket environment, with adequate osmolality, pH, nutritional metabolites and glucose. This paper reviews the literature on the different storage media that have been investigated for avulsed teeth based on full-length papers retrieved from PubMed/ Medline, Lilacs, BBO and SciELO electronic databases using the key words ‘storage medium’, ‘transportation medium’, ‘avulsion’, ‘tooth avulsion’, ‘replantation’, ‘tooth replantation’.

Key Words Tooth avulsion; storage media; replantation

ABSTRACT

An increasing number of adult patients have been seeking orthodontic treatment, and a short treatment time has been a recurring request. To meet their expectations, a number of surgical techniques have been developed to accelerate orthodontic tooth movement. The PAOO (Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics) or Wilckodontics, technique synergizes selective decortication facilitated orthodontics with periodontal regeneration and alveolar augmentation in order to create rapid orthodontic tooth movement (OTM). Therefore by combining periodontal surgical care together with PAOO plus Orthodontic treatment, patients are more willing to accept comprehensive dental care, since the time required for comprehensive orthodontic therapy can be reduced by 60-75%.

Key Words Periodontal regeneration; regional acceleratory phenomena; accelerated osteogenic orthodontics

ABSTRACT

Influence of appearance in personal and professional lives have led to a considerable interest among the adult population seeking orthodontic treatment in the last few years. Since then there has been an increased demand for esthetic alternatives to conventional fixed stainless-steel appliances. Align Technology (Santa Clara, California) has addressed this demand by developing an “invisible” method of orthodontic treatment (Invisalign) that uses a series of computer-generated, clear, removable appliances (aligners). Although the computerized Invisalign system is new, the idea of removable, flexible appliances made on an idealized setup has been used for many years. Before bonded appliances were in common practice. The practice of orthodontics is faced with new trends. Adults are increasingly aware of the influence of appearance in their personal and professional lives. Align Technology’s Invisalign system was introduced as a new orthodontic tool. This product offers adult patients full orthodontic treatment with an esthetic appliance. With Invisalign, the orthodontic treatment works through a series of invisible, removable & comfortable aligners which are convenient to the patient. Invisalign have been proven effective in professional research & in orthodontic practices worldwide. Many certified orthodontists are now providing this non-traditional treatment choice as an alternative to traditional metal braces.

Key Words Invisalign; CAD-CAM; stereolithography

ABSTRACT

Background: Oral health problems can be considered a public health setback due to its high prevalence and significant social impact. Hence, it is essential to combat oral diseases with preventive approach and focus on education and promotion.

Objective: To assess the oral hygiene-related knowledge, attitude, and practices among the patients visiting Department of Public Health Dentistry of a dental hospital in Udaipur city, Rajasthan, India.

Materials and methods: A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted among the patients visiting the Department of Public Health Dentistry at Pacific Dental College & Hospital, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. A total of 500 patients were selected by simple random sampling method. A self-constructed selfadministered questionnaire was used comprising questions regarding oral health knowledge, attitude, and practices. Descriptive statistics and chi-square test were used for statistical analysis.

Results: Among the study population, if dental decay is present, majority (44%) did not care if pain was absent. Merely 45.6% knew that tobacco causes oral cancer. A larger proportion of respondents (66%) did not know that oral health is related to systemic health. Majority (58.8%) used toothbrush and toothpaste and 52% had tongue cleaning habit. Rural population showed lesser frequency of toothbrushing in comparison to urban population, only 43.3% of them used toothbrush and toothpaste.

Conclusion: The knowledge and attitude of the study subjects about oral health were found to be nonsatisfactory, but the oral health practices seemed to be acceptable. The rural population requires attention in all the aspects of oral health maintenance. Oral health promotion programs are required to improve the current status of the population.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Dental implant is an artificial tooth root that restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits, and functions like a natural tooth. Dental implants are generally accepted as a prosthetic treatment of edentulous patients currently. The aim of the study was to assess the awareness of the patients regarding implant-retained prosthesis as an option for tooth replacement and the knowledge about tooth replacement.

Materials and methods: A cross-sectional survey was conducted among the patients visiting Pacific Dental College & Hospital, Udaipur. The survey was conducted over a period of 2 months. A total of 560 study subjects were participated in the study.

Results: The study participants consisted of 54.5% males and about 37.9% were aged between 51 and 70 years. Among the 560 respondents, 87.9% were aware of dental implants; 92.5% were aware of complete dentures; 41.6% mentioned relatives followed by dentists, newspapers, and internet; 97.5% of the respondents were willing to consider dental implant treatment if needed; 87.1% of the respondents stated high costs; 97.5% of the respondents thought that dental insurance is needed in our country for dental implant treatment.

Conclusion: This survey showed that many patients were not aware of using dental implants as an option for replacing missing teeth. Efforts must be directed at increasing the awareness levels by using media, newspapers, etc. as a source to achieve the target. Oral health education is essential for developing positive behavior among people regarding dental implants.

Keywords: Awareness, Dental implants, Treatment.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Dentists in today’s world play an important role in society as professional health care workers. In developing countries, dentistry as a profession is limited to a small percentage of community and still has to go a long way.

Aim: To determine the motivation and perception of undergraduate and postgraduate dental students among dental colleges in Udaipur city.

Materials and methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted among all dental students (N = 600). A self-administered questionnaire consisted of demographic information and questions regarding motivation and perception. A total of approximately 600 students were enrolled at the time of study. Further elimination was done to maintain approximately equal representation of students of each year. Thus, a total of 350 students were randomly selected from all years of dental course to keep minimal bias. Chi-square test was used for statistical analysis.

Results: After statistical analysis, the difference was found to be nonsignificant (p > 0.5) in three questions while in other questions the difference was significant (p < 0.5).

Conclusion: This study concludes that job security, improving esthetics, self-employment, money factor, flexibility in working hours, and professional status are the motivating and perceptive factors. So, it may be a good idea to establish educational programs in dental colleges to educate students on other aspects of dentistry.

Keywords: Dental students, Motivation, Perception.
