REVIEW
Kobkan Thongprasom
Topical steroids have been widely used in the treatment of symptomatic oral lesions to reduce pain and inflammation. Potent topical steroids such as clobetasol propionate, fluocinolone acetonide (FA), and fluocinonide have been widely used in the treatment of severe oral mucosal lesions. Many reports have demonstrated that these steroids were effective in treating oral lesions with only minor side-effects. This review describes the effectiveness and side-effects of using FA 0.1% in the treatment of symptomatic oral lichen planus (OLP), oral lichenoid drug reaction (OLDR), oral pemphigus, and herpes associated erythema multiforme (HAEM)...

This paper describes a case of a young patient who sought help because of pain in the right temporomandibular joint (TMJ). She also reported increasing of pain during chewing. Clinical examination revealed limited mouth opening with uncorrected deviation to the ipsilateral side. Palpation of the lateral pole of the right condyle discovered crepitus, and maximum assisted opening elicited a report of "familiar pain". The diagnosis of osteoarthritis of the TMJ (RDC / TMD criteria, Axis I, Group III) was confirmed by CBCT of TMJ...

Objective: The aim of this paper is to report on a case of positive human identification of a decomposed body after the comparison of ante-mortem (AM) and port-mortem (PM) computed tomography images of frontal sinus. Case report: An unknown, highly decomposed human body, aged between 30 and 40 years, was found in a forest region in Brazil. The dental autopsy revealed several teeth missing AM and the presence of removable partial prostheses. The search for AM data resulted in a sequence of 20 axial images of the paranasal sinuses obtained by Multislice Computed Tomography (MSCT)...

Objectives: To determine the percentage of persistant apical lesions positive for bacterial nucleic acids, to detect microorganisms difficult to cultivate in persistant apical lesions by PCR and relate them to endodontic failure, clinical symptoms and diabetes mellitus. Materials and methods: The samples of persistent apical lesions were collected during apicoectomy. Bacterial ubiquitous primer 16S rRNA was used to detect 16S ribosomal RNA in 36 samples. A species-specific PCR was performed with primers targeted to the bacterial 16S rRNA genes of Prevotella Nigrescens, Pseudoramibacter alactolyticus, and Propionobacterium propionicum...

Objective: The aim of this in vitro study was to investigate the effect of Shoulder versus Chamfer margin design on the marginal adaptation of zirconia (Zr) copings. Materials and Methods: 40 extracted molar teeth were mounted in resin and prepared for zirconia crowns with two margin preparation designs (20=Shoulder and 20=Chamfer). The copings were manufactured by Cercon® (DeguDent GmbH, Germany) using the CAD/CAM system for each tooth. They were tried on each tooth, cemented, thermocycled, re-embedded in resin and were subsequently cross sectioned centrally into two equal mesial and distal halves...

BACKGROUND: There is an increasing number of scientific evidence supporting the clinical use of short dental implants. However, few studies have evaluated the long-term outcomes of immediate loading protocols in short implants. This study aims to evaluate immediate loading of short dental implants in the posterior regions of the maxillae. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients having short implants in maxillae posterior areas inserted before December, 2010 and immediately loaded were selected...

BACKGROUND: Myoepitheliomas are uncommon salivary gland neoplasms consisting entirely or predominantly of cells with myoepithelial phenotype. They commonly involve the parotid gland and the minor salivary glands of the palate. AIM: A case of plasmacytoid myoepithelioma of the hard palate is described. CASE DESCRIPTION AND RESULTS: A 55-year-old woman presented to her oral surgeon with a tumor on the hard palate. Microscopic examination showed a well-circumscribed but non-encapsulated tumor, consisting mostly of plasmacytoid cells in a loose fibrovascular stroma...

Here, we report on a patient who presented with extensive oral lesions. The treatment with lamotrigine is described.The patient presented with bilateral facial swellings and mental space swelling with actively draining extra oral sinus tract in the central chin area. Dental medicine professionals should be aware of the risks involved with using this medication, and should recognize the population at risk among patients suffering from epilepsy, bipolar and neurologic disorders.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the proliferation and adhesion of mesenchymal cells (3T3/NIH) in Dulbecco's Modified Eagle Medium(DMEM) supplemented with Platelet-Poor Plasma (PPP) in aPlatelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) scaffold. Human blood was obtained and processed in a centrifuge considering the equation G=1.12xRx(RPM/1000)(2) to obtain PRF and PPP.Cell adhesion and maintenance analyses were performed by MTTassays in a 96 well plate withsupplemented DMEM: PPP (90:10) for 24 hours. Besides, the PRF was deposited in a 48 well plate and 10x10(4) cells were seeded above each PRF (n=3) with 800µl of DMEM: PPP (90:10) and cultured for 7 days...

BACKGROUND: In many cases, the indirect pulp treatment (IPT) is an acceptable treatment for deciduous teeth with reversible pulp inflammation. Various medicaments have been used for IPT, ranging from calcium hydroxide and glass ionomers to dentin adhesives. OBJECTIVE: This in vitro trial aimed to measure cytotoxicity in a cell culture, comparing the following four adhesives: Xeno® V (XE), Excite® F DSC (EX), Adhese® OneF (AD) and Prime & Bond NT (PB). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The adhesives were prepared according to the manufacturer's instructions...

BACKGROUND: An increasing demand for esthetic restorations has resulted in an increased use of all-ceramic restorations, such as zirconium. However, one of the challenges the orthodontist must be willing to face is how to increase bond strength between the brackets and various ceramic restorations.Bond strength can beaffected bybracket type, by the material that bracketsaremade of, and their base surface design or retention mode. ​: Aim: of this study was to perform a comparative analysis of the shear bond strength (SBS) of metallic and ceramic orthodontic brackets bonded to all-zirconium ceramic surfaces used for prosthetic restorations, and also to evaluate the fracture mode of these two types of orthodontic brackets...

OBJECTIVE: Ishemic bone disease has multifactorial etiologies. Cronic dental infections should be eliminated to prevent osteonecrosis of the jaw. CASE REPORT: We report an unusual case of osteonecrosis due to the pulpal-peridontal syndrome and subsequent pulp necrosis.

The early techniques of cleft lip repair involved the straight-line technique, the triangular flap technique or some kind of geometric line (triangular, quadrangular closure). A turning point in cleft lip surgery was in 1955 when doctor. Millard presented his method: the rotation-advancement technique or flap, at the First International Congress of Plastic Surgery in Stockholm. Today, the technique, with or without some modifications, is used by more than 85% of cleft surgeons around the world. We are presenting a patient with complete unilateral cleft lip and palate who underwent surgery sixty-five years ago...

INTRODUCTION: Digital technologies related to imaging and manufacturing provide the clinician with a wide variety of treatment options. Stereolithography (SLA) offers a simple and predictable way for an accurate reconstruction of congenital or acquired defects. CLINICAL CASE: A 65-years old cancer patient with non- keratinized squamous cell carcinoma of left maxillary sinus came for a prosthetic clinical evaluation. A bilateral maxillectomy was performed and the treatment plan included definite obturator prosthesis for the upper arch...
