Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the knowledge of Ebola Haemorrhagic fever (EHF) among the University of Benin clinical dental students. Methods: The study was a descriptive, cross-sectional study among consenting clinical (4th, 5th and 6th year) dental students of the University of Benin. The data collection tool was a 17-item self-administered validated questionnaire with a Chronbach's alpha value of 0.84. Data from the questionnaires were scored and graded, coded and finally entered into Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 21...

The Stafne defect is a benign, asymptomatic, non-progressive and rare bone depression, mainly discovered by chance in the posterior mandibular region. It is described radiographically as an oval radiolucency located below the mandibular canal, in the molar region, close to the submandibular gland. Sialography is a traditional technique in the radiographic examination of salivary glands that involves the injection of an iodine-based contrast medium into the main salivary duct. The Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a 3D imaging technique that has modernized the dental and maxillofacial practice with its advantages such as high speed, good spatial resolution and low radiation exposure...

Myxoma is a rare variety of benign tumors of the jaw, whose origin is embryonic mesenchymal dental follicle. Clinical and radiological manifestations are variable and non-specific and can lend confusion with other lesions. We describe a case of very invasive odontogenic myxoma , observed in a woman of 51 years. Clinically, the patient had left maxillary swelling, painless, firm to the touch. CT facial bones showed an expansive osteolytic process blowing the jaw. The treatment consisted of a wide excision of the tumor by endobuccal way, the tumor is individualized well from the bone...

Introduction: Periodontal prosthodontic surgery plays a major role in the integration of aesthetic and functional prosthetic restorations, including in the anterior area. Indeed, any dento-gingival disharmony of volume or shape must be corrected beforehand, thus justify a plastic periodontal surgery. Observation: This is a 20-year-old patient, who consulted for essentially aesthetic motive: the restoration of the fracture 11. Clinical examination revealed the presence of a defective provisional prosthesis on 11, an unsightly filling composite resin on the 21, asymmetry of the gingival contour, as well as a low located upper labial brake...

The decision to extract the last teeth represents for the patient an aesthetic, functional and moral damage. The realization of an immediate complete removable denture is indicated to remedy these difficulties. This will make it possible to ensure a rational and efficient management of this transition to total edentulous. The restorations of aesthetics and functions as well as patient comfort constitute the essential therapeutic objectives to be achieved and this thanks to the immediate denture. This work presents, through clinical cases, the indications and the management of four patients who have never worn a removable denture...

This is the case of a 12-year-old African young girl with bialveolar protrusion and night mouth breathing. Orthodontic treatment without dental extraction consisted after tonsillectomy in retraction of anterior teeth in the diastema spaces. The normalization of the angle of the upper incisor has improved bialveolar protrusion without alteration to the prior balance of soft tissue.

This study aimed to investigate the root apex morphology in permanent teeth of a Moroccan population using scanning electron microscope. Eighty-seven teeth were collected from Moroccan patients attending the Oral Surgery Department of the faculty of dentistry, Mohammed V University, Rabat, Morocco. The extracted teeth were then prepared for scanning electron microscope (SEM) observation at a root apex slice thickness of 5 mm. The median distance of the apical foramen from the apex was about 0.37 [0-0.62] mm, 0...

Oral health is an important component of general health and a determinant factor for quality of life. Though oral diseases are largely preventable, many people across the globe still suffer from pain and discomfort associated with oral diseases. The attainment of optimum oral health is impeded by a number of obstacles which include the cost and affordability of treatment, poor access due to workforce shortages and inequitable distribution of the dental workforce and low oral health literacy amongst others. The provision of oral health services is oriented towards curative care...

First described by Philipsen in 1956, the odontogenic keratocyst is characterized by a large squamous keratinization of its border, an aggressive growth and a high recurrent rate. It is now designated by the World Health Organization as a Keratocystic Odontogenic Tumor (KOT). Clinically, the KOT is manifested by an asymptomatic growth. Radiographically, it appears as a well-defined unilocular or multilocular osteolytic lesion. The diagnostic approach is based on a combined analysis of the medical history, the clinical appearance and the radiographic appearance...

The biggest challenge while restoring anterior teeth is shade matching. Hue, chroma, value, opacity, translucency, intensity and anatomy must be seen to be reproduced. To see we need light, knowing that there is a strong relation between the nature of light and the components of natural teeth. This article enlightens the way to do the shade matching and the stratification of anterior teeth by choosing the relevant materials to mimic the nature. The physical properties of natural and polarized light will be studied to understand their correlation with dental materials and natural teeth to use them in the best combination...
