View/Download | Abstract »
Due to the impairment of masticatory function and facial deformity caused by tooth loss, patients may experience a significant handicap that has a negative psychological impact. Excellent denture aesthetics can be attained by giving the drooping tissues additional support in addition to the standard procedures of arranging the teeth to obtain lip support. This clinical report demonstrates a method for supporting sunken cheeks with removable acrylic cheek plumper’s that are held in place by cobalt-neodymium close-field magnets. These magnets are a variation to the standard method for maintaining slumping tissues

View/Download | Abstract »

Flabby ridge is a common clinical finding which affects the alveolar ridges of the mandibular or maxillary arches. The most affected area in edentulous patient is usually anterior region of maxilla. Compromised stability, support, and retention of denture are usually seen in case of flabby ridge unless adequate measures for its management are employed. Surgical removal and augmentation, special impression techniques, balanced distribution of occlusal loads and implant therapy are some management option in flabby tissue. Special impressions are usually performed such as window technique for static impression of flabby area, which present multiple challenges. The purpose of this technique report is to present a modified technique for the impression of anterior maxillary flabby tissues for improved and controlled application of polyvinyl siloxane impression material that is routinely available in dental practice.

Technology in dentistry is a novel science and it will continue to grow in future. The research field that study dentistry from a technical perspective is dental informatics. A simple but congent definition of dental informatics is “The application of computer and information science to improve dental practice, research, education and management”. Dental informatics is beginning to exhibit the characteristics of a discipline: core literature, trained specialists and educational programs. Over the past two decades, there have been significant achievements in oral health in India, but, it still remains a challenge to achieve the establishment of a database for monitoring and surveillance. Most dentists are unaware of what dental informatics is, what its goals are? What it has achieved and how they can get involved in it. Dental informatics presents possible solutions to many longstanding problems in dentistry, but it also faces significant obstacles and challenges. Its maturation will depend as much on the efforts of people as on the collective efforts of the profession.

Mucocele (Mucus Extravasation Phenomenon; Mucus Escape Reaction) is a common lesion of the oral mucosa that results from rupture of a salivary gland duct and spillage of mucin into surrounding soft tissues. Trauma is the main causefor the development of the mucocele in children. It is not true cyst because of the lack of an epithelial lining. Mucocele typically appears dome shaped mucosal swelling. Mucocele are removed by surgical procedure. The most common site for the mucocele is the lower lip. They are most common in children and young adults but also include infants and older adults. This article reports a case of mucocele in child that has been surgically removed and there is no recurrence.

5. Microsurgery: A Periodontal Perspective

Dr. Madhulika Banerjee, Dr. Neelam Das, Dr. Janardhana Amaranath B.J., Dr. Shruti Gupta

View/Download | Abstract »

In today's periodontal practise, surgical procedures are being refined more and more to satisfy patients' biologic and aesthetic needs. Surgical methods and instruments are required for these new technologies. The range of the clinician's visual acuity limit tests their technical skills. Periodontal microsurgery enhances normal vision through magnification and a good lighting system, which improves the results of basic periodontal surgical procedures. In terms of passive wound closure and lessened tissue trauma, it provides improved outcomes that are not possible with conventional surgery. This review's objective is to provide a basic understanding of periodontal microsurgery, including the function of magnification, microsurgical equipment, and applications.
