Aim: The aim of this survey is to determine the percentage of Practing Dental Professionals (PDP’s) offering dental implants, source of learning, the most accepted techniques and materials used by the professionals in the selected central part of Madhya Pradesh

Methodology: the present study was conducted in Department of Prosthodontics of Maharana pratap college, Gwalior. The study population was dental practitioners working in Madya Pradesh. A non-probability sampling techniques was used in study. The self Developed structured questionnaire containing thirty three items (questions) was used in study after doing reliability and validity testing. The questionnaire (tool) in the form of a hard copy/Google generated e-form was administered to dentist

Result: The total number of dental practitioner who had completed the survey was 401. The overall knowledge of 76.1% was very good and 21.7% was good. There was no difference in knowledge between Genders and different age groups but MDS and had significantly more knowledge than BDS

Conclusion: The Knowledge about dental implants among practicing dentist was good. Postgraduate Dentist had significantly more knowledge regarding dental implant in comparison to Graduates.

The general oral habits involve the learned pattern of muscular contraction and can lead to malocclusion. The result of malocclusion is aesthetic and functional impairment which may result in bad chewing, speech and swallowing leading to worsening of quality of life. These habits might be thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, mouth breathing, nail biting, bruxism events. Such habits can lead to destruction of dent alveolar structure. This review aims to understand the etiology and effect behind the development of these oral habits to combat the problem from the root.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the shear bond strength of two resin composites around different types of fiber posts. Twenty post specimens were prepared for three types of fiber posts. Posts were embedded in acrylic resin blocks with half of the post diameter exposed. To produce a uniformly smooth surface, the exposed sections of the posts were successively ground with silicon carbide paper. All the posts were treated with a single silane coupling agent layer and gently air dried. Three types of fiber posts were randomly divided into two groups, according to the resin composite used. The light-cured composite resins were placed in a polytetrafluoroethylene mold positioned over the post specimens and they were polymerized. Shear bond strength values (MPa) of posts and composite resin cores were measured using an universal test machine. Two way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and Tukey’s test were used for statistical analysis. The result of two-way ANOVA showed that the difference between the post groups was not significant (p = 0.59). But significant differences were observed between the core materials (p = 0.018). The shear bond strength values were not affected by the type of the fiber post. The type of the composite core material affected the bond strength values between the fiber post and composite core.

Periodontal therapy's primary goal is to eradicate the disease's underlying etiological agent. Periodontal therapy is divided into two types: nonsurgical and surgical. Periodontal nonsurgical therapy is still an important part of periodontal treatment. Simply performing scaling, root planning, and thorough periodontal debridement can improve the clinical signs and symptoms of periodontitis in the majority of cases. In this case, a 47-year-old female patient reported to Department of Periodontology complaining of gingival bleeding, halitosis and gingival enlargement. The patient noticed the problems 3-4 months back which were gradually increasing in severity. The patient was medically fit. In this case, a complete elimination of severe periodontal disease was achieved by scaling and root planning with a frequent maintenance visit without any surgical intervention in the patient.

View/Download | Abstract »

Dental implant/prosthetic rehabilitation revealed superior long-term outcomes in posterior regions of the maxilla and mandible, odontoplastic surgery might have become less important nowadays. Nevertheless, in certain situations hemi section or root amputation or premolarisation of molars could be indicated as alternative treatment while preserving the tooth. Mandibular molars which are most commonly extracted due to caries and periodontal issues are the major standpoint for occlusion. Loss of the posterior teeth leads to teeth drifting, loss of masticatory function and loss of arch length, which requires prevention and maintenance measures.
