Changes in facial bones may represent a manifestation of systemic disease. Dentists play an important role in the early detection of these manifestations of complex systemic diseases. A case of unusual maxillary mixed (osteoblastic and osteolytic) lesions as an initial manifestation of childhood acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is presented. A 12-year-old male patient was referred to the Department of Oral Medicine complaining of severe swelling in the right buccal region. 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) showed enhanced FDG uptake in the right maxillary sinus...

OBJECTIVE: Deficient bony ridges often complicate the implant treatment plan. Several treatment modalities are used to regenerate bone, including guided bone regeneration (GBR). The purpose of this study was to summarize the knowledge on different types of membranes available and currently used in GBR procedures in a staged approach or with simultaneous implant placement. The primary role of the membranes is to exclude epithelial and connective tissue cells from the wound area to be regenerated, and to create and maintain the space into which pluripotential and osteogenic cells are free to migrate...

OBJECTIVE: Dental students have high levels of anxiety that can affect not only academic performance but also increase the risk for other diseases. It is believed that the increase in the incidence of chronic orofacial pain in temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) may have an impact on the quality of life and general health of subjects. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of TMD in dental students and its association with general health, quality of life, and anxiety. METHOD AND MATERIALS: Ninety students were evaluated by four questionnaires to determine the prevalence and severity of TMD (Fonseca's questionnaire) and to quantify general health (General Health Questionnaire - GHQ), quality of life (World Health Organization Quality of Life - Brief version - WHOQOL-brief) and anxiety levels (State-Trait Anxiety Index - STAI)...

Venous malformations are congenital, abnormally formed vessels, present at birth. They do not undergo regression with the growth of the patient. Due to the stagnation of blood flow in venous malformations, thrombosis and phlebolith formation may occur. Phleboliths are calcified thrombi which radiographically must be differentiated from calcified lymph nodes, sialoliths, foreign bodies, and other radiopacities. We report an extensive venous malformation in a 19-year-old woman with panoramic radiography demonstrating multiple phleboliths...

BACKGROUND: With the Minamata Convention the use of mercury will be phased down, and this undoubtedly will have an effect on dental treatment regimens and economic resources. Composite resin restorations are considered viable alternatives to amalgam fillings; however, these will not be covered completely by health insurance systems in many countries. Recently, a high-viscosity glass-ionomer cement (hvGIC) processed with a resinous coating (RC) has been introduced, and has been marketed as a restorative material in load-bearing Class I cavities (and in Class II cavities with limited size), thus serving as a possible alternative to amalgam fillings...
