BACKGROUND: Diffuse sclerosing osteomyelitis (DSO) is a non-purulent chronic recurrent inflammation and affects the mandible in many cases. Belonging to the group of autoinflammatory diseases, in children and in cases with various additional symptoms including synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyerostosis, and osteitis (SAPHO syndrome), therapy usually consists of non-surgical treatment. Against this background, we present an unusual course of DSO in an adult female patient. CASE REPORT: A 50-year-old female suffering from DSO without SAPHO syndrome was pretreated for years with conservative drug regimens and local surgery...

BACKGROUND: Necrotizing fasciitis has been reported as a complication secondary to bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) in a low number of patients. The only report of such a case in an osteoporosis patient found in current literature was related to short-term bisphosphonate but long time corticosteroid and methotrexate treatment. CASE PRESENTATION: In this article, we report a case of necrotizing fasciitis secondary to osteonecrosis of the jaw related to long-term oral bisphosphonate treatment in an osteoporosis patient additionally suffering from poorly controlled type 2 diabetes...

PURPOSE: Augmented reality-based constructive jaw surgery has been facing various limitations such as noise in real-time images, the navigational error of implants and jaw, image overlay error, and occlusion handling which have limited the implementation of augmented reality (AR) in corrective jaw surgery. This research aimed to improve the navigational accuracy, through noise and occlusion removal, during positioning of an implant in relation to the jaw bone to be cut or drilled. METHOD: The proposed system consists of a weighting-based de-noising filter and depth mapping-based occlusion removal for removing any occluded object such as surgical tools, the surgeon's body parts, and blood...

PURPOSE: It is believed that whenever we inject local anesthesia into the palate it is a painful experience for the patients. The aim of this study was to make palatal anesthesia painless by adding 7.4% sodium bicarbonate as an adjunct in local anesthesia. METHODS: Fifty subjects requiring extraction of maxillary bilateral premolar teeth for orthodontic purpose free from periapical infections. These extractions were divided in such a way that all right-sided extractions were done under 2% lignocaine with 1:80,000 adrenaline; and all left-sided extractions were done under 2% lignocaine with 1:80,000 adrenaline with 7...

PURPOSE: Intermaxillary fixation (IMF) is a fundamental principle in the management of mandibular fractures but with recent advent of open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), use of IMF is almost limited intraoperatively. Therefore, we compared the efficacy of Erich arch bar versus embrasure wires for intraoperative IMF in mandibular fractures. METHOD: This prospective study was comprised of 50 patients with mandibular fractures who required ORIF with intraoperative IMF...

Pilomatrixoma is considered a rare benign tumor arising from the hair follicle, most common in the head and neck region, but it is rarely diagnosed on a clinical basis. This report describes a new case of giant pilomatrixoma in a 36-year-old female patient. The nodule was localized in the preauricular area on the right side, appearing as a slow-growing, fixed, painless, with a hardened consistency, unusual giant (4.5 cm). A cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) examination showed a slightly hyperdense lesion, and fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) revealed peripheral blood and mononucleated inflammatory cells...

INTRODUCTION: In severe TMJ ankylosis cases, the lack of growth of the mandible creates an anatomically narrow airway with a reduced pharyngeal airway space [PAS] which predisposes these patients towards obstructive apnoea [OSA]. There is evidence in the literature that such patients experience severe discomfort during physiotherapy if such airway abnormalities are not corrected prior to ankylosis release. This eventually leads to non-compliance towards physiotherapy and increases the risk of re-ankylosis...

The aim of our study was to evaluate the effectiveness of buccal fat pad (BFP) in the management of oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF). Retrospective records of 30 patients of OSMF treated with BFP with atleast a year of follow-up were analyzed. Patients were divided into groups based on the stages of OSMF. Surgical management consisted of resection of fibrous bands, bilateral temporalis myotomy, and coronoidectomy followed by grafting with BFP. There were 17 patients of stage III (mouth opening 16-25 mm) and 13 patients of stage IV OSMF (mouth opening less than 16 mm)...

PURPOSE: Unilateral or bilateral ankylosis can lead to severe micrognathia and facial deformity that requires multiple, often, staged surgical corrections. To date, there is no ideal treatment modality that satisfactorily corrects the complex anatomy, restores the ramal height, and corrects the micrognathia and microgenia. Distraction osteogenesis has been acclaimed as a successful modality for the treatment of such deformities. It is a cost-effective approach with low morbidity and less relapse thus providing better functional and esthetic outcomes...
