Prevalence of peri-implant complication is expected to be on the rise with the increased number of implants being placed. Depending on the degree of osseous involvement, the clinician needs to decide if the treatment goal is to arrest the disease progression, regeneration or explantation and replacement. Host's medical status, defect configuration, aesthetic outcome, ability to access for plaque control post-treatment, and the patient's wishes are key factors to consider. The purpose of this review is to provide a contemporary synopsis on the management of peri-implantitis with emphasis on explantation...

Sinus augmentation is a predictable procedure that is often required when restoring the posterior maxilla with dental implants. Even with high success rates, careful pre-surgical planning is crucial. A 3D model is a valuable aid for the clinician as it allows for pre-operative simulation, which can reduce surgical time, reduce the risk of intra-operative complications and decrease the potential for error. The aim of this case report is to focus on how such a model is useful when undertaking a sinus augmentation procedure with simultaneous implant placement...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Microbial biofilm and host susceptibility play an important role in the initiation and progression of periodontitis. Periodontitis is considered the sixth complication of diabetes mellitus and a bidirectional relationship exists between diabetes and periodontitis. This cross-sectional observational study was undertaken to evaluate the glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) level in chronic periodontitis. METHODS: The study involved 100 subjects...

BACKGROUND: The ideal goal of periodontal therapy is regeneration of the lost periodontium. However regeneration of the lost interdental papilla has been elusive. Therefore the ability of rebuilding lost papillae in the maxillary segment has become one of the major challenges in periodontal plastic surgery. OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY: To evaluate the success and predictability of surgical technique using a sub epithelial connective tissue graft interposed in a coronally displaced flap to reconstruct the lost interdental papillae...

BACKGROUND: Mandibular neurovascular canal contents may be vulnerable to damage during mandibular surgical procedures. Greater knowledge of the location and configuration of the mandibular canal can help in the safe performance of these procedures in the dental clinic. Cross-sectional CBCT imaging is a good modality for studying the course, location, configuration and accessory branches of the mandibular canal. The aim of this study was to observe the branching of the mandibular canal at different segments of the mandible and mandibular tooth groups...

REVIEW
Andrew Narendran Robinson, Paul Anantharajah Tambyah
Infective endocarditis (IE) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The prevention of infective endocarditis, for many years, has involved the identification of at risk patients undergoing medical or dental procedures and the use of pre-procedural antibiotic prophylaxis. However, evidence regarding the effectiveness of such measures is lacking while evidence is mounting for the adverse effects of inappropriate antibiotic use. International guidelines for antibiotic prophylaxis were amended, radically in some cases to reflect this...

Nadeena Sri Swarnagupta Jayasuriya, Indika Danuka Weerapperuma, Malagoda Gamage Chathura Kanchana Amarasinghe
The palatal injection of anaesthesia is more painful for the patient when compared to other sites of the oral cavity. Pre-cooling (cyro anaesthesia) is a well-known method practiced to reduce pain, with the use of ice or refrigerant spray on the affected site. The already known methods of ice application to the palatal site have few practical drawbacks. Therefore, this technical note highlights the use of an iced cotton bud as a novel way of providing effective pre-cooling for palatal anaesthesia. Commercially available cotton buds were dipped in clean water and then placed in the freezer...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess the interrelationship between periodontitis and atherosclerosis by comparing the ultrasound and clinical markers of atherosclerosis in systemically healthy patients with and without periodontitis and whether periodontitis can be an independent risk factor for atherosclerosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Total 40 subjects, of same socioeconomic status, belonging to age group of 35-65 years, were recruited and divided into two groups - Group I (Chronic Generalised Periodontitis without any systemic disease: CP-SH), Group II (Normal healthy patients without periodontitis and any systemic disease - SH)...

A well-constructed essay is indicative of deep strategic understanding and is considered a valid assessment tool in many dental schools. It has been suggested that constructing MCQs could be an effective learning tool for students while at the same time contribute towards a pool of well-constructed MCQs that could stand up to scrutiny at high-stakes examinations. This study aimed to compare the quality of essays written by students trained and untrained in MCQ construction. The null hypothesis was that construction of MCQs did not result in higher grades achieved in "closed-book" time-limited assessment conditions...

Solitary pigmented melanocytic intraoral lesions of the oral cavity are rare. Oral nevus is a congenital or acquired benign neoplasm. Oral compound nevus constitutes 5.9%-16.5% of all oral melanocytic nevi. The oral compound nevus is commonly seen on hard palate and buccal mucosa and rarely on other intraoral sites. The objective of this article is to present a rare case report of oral compound nevus in the retromolar pad region along with a review of literature. A 22 year old female reported with a solitary black pigmented papule at retromolar pad region which was surgically removed and microscopic investigation confirmed the diagnosis of oral compound nevus...

Orthodontic treatment often requires extraction or distalization for gaining space. With both treatment modalities, emphasis has always been given to the simplicity and effectiveness of the treatment, time required for each visit, cost and minimum requirement of the inventory. To accomplish this, various appliances and auxiliaries have been designed in the past of which sliding jigs are commonly used. They pose various clinical problems of which time to fabricate them for each patient is one as they cannot be stored in a prefabricated form...

BACKGROUND: Dental and maxillofacial injuries are one of the areas of concern highlighted in the Malaysian National Oral Health Plan 2011-2020. General dental practitioners (GDPs) have the responsibility of diagnosing and assessing dental trauma and determining the prognosis and outcomes of trauma along with its management. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the knowledge base and preferred methods of general dental practitioners regarding the management of avulsed tooth. METHODS: A random convenient sampling methodology was employed for sample selection...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the differences in Willingness to pay (WTP) for an extraction, a filling, and cleaning of teeth among older adults with varying levels of Oral Health-related Quality of Life (OHQoL). BACKGROUND: OHQoL has been used extensively to measure utilities as reported by individuals of interest. Currently there are no reports that examine the WTP of individuals at various levels of OHQoL. METHODS: A convenience sample of adults 60 years or older were recruited...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies have suggested that latent herpes virus infections can be associated with chronic periodontal sites that exhibit a predisposition to disease progression. The aim of this study was to identify the possible relationship between infections with CMV and EBV and the severity of periodontal disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty two patients aged between 27 and 70 years, diagnosed with periodontal disease were enrolled in the study after giving informed consent...

Finger prosthesis often needs refabrication due to its discoloration following use. This article presents a novel, economical, and cost-effective technique to duplicate the patient׳s existing prosthesis to obtain a new wax replica, which is then clinically tried and processed to obtain new silicone finger prosthesis. This technique requires comparatively less clinical and laboratory steps as to fabricate an entirely new prosthesis. The newly fabricated silicone finger prosthesis has the fit and marginal adaptation of the patient׳s existing prosthesis but the esthetics is improved...
