BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Several environmental and genetic issues have been suspected as risk factors for oral clefts; and many studies have been conducted in this regard; however, large socioeconomic impacts of cleft lip and or palate (CL/P) justifies the need for further multifactorial researches. Current study aimed to assess parental risk factors for CL/P and its associated malformations. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Hospital records of 187 consecutive syndromic and non-syndromic children with cleft lip and or palate (103 boys and 84 girls) with a mean age of 1...

Aesthetic implant restoration in the anterior maxilla is a challenge for clinicians. Alveolar ridge and surrounding gingiva deficiencies aggravates implant placement in the aesthetic area. This case report describes a technique for aesthetic single implant placement with simultaneous bone grafting and soft tissue thickening. At the time of implant surgery, allogenic (Maxgraft, Botiss Biomaterials, Germany) and xenogenic bone substitute (Cerabone, Botiss Biomaterials, Germany) was used for bone grafting, soft tissues were augmented simultaneously with collagen tissue matrix derivate membrane (Mucoderm, Botiss Biomaterials, Germany)...

A 36-year-old Philippine male has a several month-history of burning pain of his tongue with lingual erythema and oral bleeding. Here we describe a classical case of oral chronic ulcer related to mechanical dental trauma. In this case, unilateral crossbite malocclusion was able to produce oral mucosal lesion that was sufficient to cause a large, chronic tongue ulcer and subsequent mild epithelial dysplasia. A specific tongue-retaining device was made. In absence of dental trauma, his chronic ulcer of the tongue resolved within a few weeks...

BACKGROUND: Dentigerous cysts are odontogenic cysts of the jaws accounting for approximately 24% of all epithelium-lined jaw cysts. Rarely, these cysts can become extremely large causing additional symptoms, while challenging treatment. This article represents a novel approach for radiological treatment follow up of large dentigerous cysts. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Dentigerous cysts were treated by marsupialization, using dedicated obturators and enucleation of the cyst afterwards...

The quality of the fixed prostheses is related to the concomitant restoration of the lost oral cavity functions and creation of aesthetics, mechanical strength and hygienic possibilities. While trying to obtain a maximum aesthetic effect and prostheses strength, the hygienic possibilities may be disregarded. The aim of this study was to review the literature regarding the biological (periodontal, peri-implant centred) and aesthetical performance of materials used for fixed constructions in the last decade. The literature survey was performed in MEDLINE (via PubMed), Wiley Online Library, ProQuest data bases for the period from year 2005 to 2017...
