The New York State Dental Journal

The origins of the current “opioid epidemic” sweeping America with its consequent overdose related deaths has resulted in numerous publications accusing the dental profession of excessively prescribing narcotic analgesics leading to the initial addictive episode. These allusions have prompted the national organization representing New York States’ almost 600 oral and maxillofacial surgeons to develop and promulgate in its official journal , a position paper detailing a non-narcotic pain management regimen to alleviate post operative discomfort. However, their pronouncement suggests prescribing a maximum daily dosage of ibuprofen which has previously been documented as causing myocardial infarction and stroke in vulnerable older …

Development Of A Portable And Rapid Decalcification Device For Oral Hard Tissue Specimens, Upasana Das, Vijayalakshmi Bhat, Taniya Feroz, Sowmya SV, Dominic Augustine 2024 Faculty of Dental Sciences, Ramaiah University of Applied Sciences

Development Of A Portable And Rapid Decalcification Device For Oral Hard Tissue Specimens, Upasana Das, Vijayalakshmi Bhat, Taniya Feroz, Sowmya Sv, Dominic Augustine

Annual Research Symposium

Decalcification is a routinely carried out procedure by oral pathologists, as the lesions involving the pulp can only be seen and identified through decalcified sections. The present methods involve usage of chemical agents, either with inorganic acids which dissolves the calcium to form soluble calcium salts or with chelating agents. Even though the chelating agents preserve the tissue morphology and show excellent microscopic picture, it has less diagnostic efficacy, as the time taken for it to decalcify the specimens is considerably high. It becomes important for us to develop a decalcification technique which will be faster and will maintain the …


Comparative Evaluation Of Bone Thickness In Infrazygomatic Crest Region For Optimal Insertion Of Bone Screws : A Cbct Study, Kavya MP 2024 Roseman University of Health Sciences

Comparative Evaluation Of Bone Thickness In Infrazygomatic Crest Region For Optimal Insertion Of Bone Screws : A Cbct Study, Kavya Mp

Annual Research Symposium

Infrazygomatic crest (IZC) is a palpable bony ridge running between the alveolar ridge and the zygomatic process of maxilla. IZC bone dimension is an important factor in the safety and stability of bone screws. IZC thickness depends on the site of insertion, angulation and height from the occlusal plane. This study embarks on a comprehensive Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) exploration, to assess infra zygomatic Crest bone thickness.

By understanding the changes of dentofacial development due to retinoblastoma treatment, effective management techniques can be implemented to resolve significant issues, relating to dental and skeletal relationship and facial appearance.


Geranylgeraniol (Ggoh), Incorporated Into A Bone Cement Pellet Promotes Osteoclast Function And Healing In A Model Of Medication-Related Osteonecrosis Of The Jaw, George J Feldman, David Young, Theresa Freeman, Lauren Israel, Daniel Taub, Robert Diecidue 2024 Thomas Jefferson University

Geranylgeraniol (Ggoh), Incorporated Into A Bone Cement Pellet Promotes Osteoclast Function And Healing In A Model Of Medication-Related Osteonecrosis Of The Jaw, George J Feldman, David Young, Theresa Freeman, Lauren Israel, Daniel Taub, Robert Diecidue

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Faculty Papers

INTRODUCTION: There is no cause -based treatment for Medication-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw (MRONJ). MRONJ is a morbid condition including exposed, infected bone and mandibular fractures in osteoporotic individuals and metastatic cancers patients treated with nitrogen containing bisphosphonates (NBP). NBPs inhibit farnesyl diphosphate synthase (FDPS) in the mevalonate pathway, depriving osteoclasts and other bone cells of small GTPases necessary for their function and survival. We test the hypothesis that geranylgeraniol (GGOH),a metabolite downstream of FDPS, when incorporated into a bone cement pellet, enhances osteoclast function and promotes local bone healing in

METHODS:

RESULTS: The release of GGOH from bone cement …

Oral focal mucinosis is a rare lesion with less than 60 cases reported in English literature so far, to the best of our knowledge. It is considered to be the oral counterpart of cutaneous focal mucinosis and/or cutaneous myxoid cyst. Histopathologically, Oral focal mucinosis is demonsterates a well-circumscribed area of myxomatous connective tissue containing mucinous material, surrounded by denser collagenous connective tissue. We present a case of Oral focal mucinosis occurring on the buccal gingiva of the lower jaw.

Evaluation Of Morphologic And Morphometric Characteristics Of The Mental Foramen And Anterior Loop In A Turkish Subpopulation Using Cone Beam Computed Tomography, Fatma Büşra Doğan, Faruk Akgünlü

Journal of Dentistry Indonesia

Objective: Before a surgical intervention in the mandibular interforaminal area, it is important to have a full understanding of the anatomy of the mandibular anterior segment. The evaluation of anatomical structures, variations and pathologies is performed with radiological imaging methods. Today, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is an imaging method which offers all the features necessary for this. In addition to its importance in surgical applications, it is also valuable in terms of anatomical studies thanks to the reliability of its measurements and the fact that it allows for a three-dimensional evaluation. The mental foramen and anterior loop are …

Enigmatic Cervicofacial Actinomycosis Post Radiotherapy - A Case Report, Amanda Phoon Nguyen 2023 Oral Medicine Specialist, UWA Dental School, The University of Western Australia, Perth, Australia

Enigmatic Cervicofacial Actinomycosis Post Radiotherapy - A Case Report, Amanda Phoon Nguyen

Journal of Dentistry Indonesia

Although thought to be uncommon, it is believed that cervicofacial actinomycosis is underreported due to frequent misdiagnosis. It has been called the “most misdiagnosed disease by experienced clinicians”. A wide range of dental procedures or trauma, including tooth eruption, may precipitate actinomycosis by enabling microorganisms to penetrate the deeper tissue layers via an entry point. This infective disease is significant due to its potentially aggressive and locally destructive nature. This case describes a patient diagnosed with cervicofacial actinomycosis. Her history prior to this was significant for proliferative verrucous leukoplakia, and T4aN0M0 (AJCC 7th Edition) squamous cell carcinoma of the right …

Journal of Dentistry Indonesia

The diagnosis and prognosis of teeth with endo-perio lesions present a major challenge for dentists. Proper diagnosis is critical in determining treatment and the long-term prognosis. However, treating complex endodontic and periodontal lesions is one of the most common challenges in current clinical practice. The coexistence of pulpal and periodontal tissue damage may complicate diagnosis and further influence dental prognosis. This article consists of a case report evaluating the efficacy of xenografts and resorbable membrane pericardium in treating bifurcation lesions associated with periodontal lesions of the left mandibular first molar. A 22-year-old female patient was referred by conservative dentistry with …
