Self-inflicted gunshot injuries to the head and neck area are challenging cases. Immediate and complex approach is required due to complexity of head and neck anatomy. The extent of injury largely depends on velocity of a rifle and penetrated tissues. Management of these type of patients consist of vital resuscitation, primary wound management, soft and hard tissue reconstruction and rehabilitation. Here we present two cases of self-inflicted gunshot injuries with low and high velocity rifles.

Multiple odontogenic keratocysts could be linked to different conditions. Then, to achieve the correct diagnosis whether their presence is associated to a syndrome, some criteria must be followed. The present study aims to report a case of a 21 years-old male patient whose was referred with several radiolucent lesion on the maxilla-mandibular complex. The lesions were biopsied and the diagnosis of the histological exam hypothesized as odontogenic keratocyst. After complete evaluation, others abnormalities were also found such as calcification of falx cerebri, palmar and plantar pits, and multiple basal cell on feet...

Candida albicans is the most prevalent human fungal pathogen, that is component of the commensal microbial flora of the mouth. Under certain conditions, C. albicans can cause severe diseases, septicaemia, and death. The mass of infections made by this pathogen are connected with biofilm growth. This survey highlights the pathogenicity mechanisms of C. albicans and how this may lead to the induction of a protective immune response. The survey is based on the most recent and important literature available from the Medline database...

AIM: The aim of this study was to describe the histological characteristics of a peri-implantitis case in the anterior maxilla. CASE REPORT: A dental implant inserted in the missing upper right lateral incisor region has been removed with its adjacent tissues. The samples were placed in 4% formalin for 10 days and, were embedded in methacrylate prior to sawing and grinding. The samples were processed with Donath´s sawing and grinding technique, stained with toluidine blue and mounted on high-sensitivity plates for histology and microradiography...

Authors developed an idea of seven blocks with different psychosocial factors that could correlate with children's dental anxiety and explain its variance. Aim of the study was to evaluate correlation between psychosocial factors and children's dental anxiety. Totally, 240 randomly selected children (mean age M=7.96, SD=2.61, range 4 to 12) and their parents took part in the study. Parents evaluated their own (MDAS) and their children's anxiety (CFSS-DS). Psychosocial factors were evaluated by a large questionnaire, developed for this study...

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)...

OBJECTIVE: To assess efficacy of short (6 mm) implants with a novel macrostructure and thread design placed in a compromised bone situations of edentulous posterior regions of maxilla (3-4 mm of bone height under sinus floor) as compared to results of clinical situations treated with simultaneous maxillary sinus grafting and placement of long (≥10 mm) implants of the same company. STUDY DESIGN: Clinical cases of conducted clinical study. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with compromised bone height in edentulous posterior regions of maxilla were randomly divided into two groups...

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...
