INTRODUCTION: Lingual nerve damage is one of the common complications following mandibular third molar surgery. On considering the impact of lingual nerve damage on the patient's quality of life, it is necessary to exercise caution to minimize its occurrence. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Although many lingual retractors are available, in this article we describe an indigenously designed lingual retractor for use in mandibular third molar surgery. CONCLUSION: The indigenous lingual retractor described in this article provides advantages like clear access and excellent retention unlike conventional retractors...

INTRODUCTION: An ectropion is a complication that can arise from reconstruction in the infraorbital region. Often, this complication occurs despite proper positioning of the lower lid at the time of closure. Various transcutaneous approaches to orbit skeleton have investigated in view of complication arising from them. A subtarsal approach with a postoperative Frost suture gives an advantage to reduce the occurrence of ectropion especially after treatment of orbital floor fractures. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This case describes a method of subcuticular suturing technique for subtarsal incision of lower lid which can be used to support the lid during healing period, thus decreasing the rate of ectropion...

Salivary gland tumours constitute about less than 4 % of all head and neck tumours. Pleomorphic adenoma, also called benign mixed tumour, is the most common tumour of the salivary glands. About 80-90 % of these tumours occur in the major salivary glands mainly parotid gland and 10 % of them occur in the minor salivary glands. The most common site for pleomorphic adenoma of the minor salivary glands is the palate, followed by the lips and the cheeks. Other rare sites include the floor of the mouth, tongue, tonsil, pharynx, retromolar area and the nasal cavity...

The palatal fracture is rare. There are varieties of techniques mentioned in the literature for fixation of palatal fracture. The management with Kirschner wire fixation, maxillary arch stabilization with the arch bars, trans-palatal, intra osseous, inter-molar, figure of eight wiring were technique sensitive and having poor patient compliance. We recommended the use of isolated 3 dimensional plate for fixation of sagittal palatal fracture.

BACKGROUND: Microorganisms may invade the blood stream by oral routes through surgical procedures like extractions, fractured teeth and periodontal pockets. The incidence of bacteremia is 70-80 % following tooth extraction, sub gingival scaling and intra ligament injection. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: Aim of study was to evaluate and compare the efficacy of two topical antimicrobial agents for the prevention of post-surgical bacteremia during mandibular third molar surgery...

PURPOSE: This study was designed to investigate the efficacy of the temporomandibular joint arthrocentesis with and without injection of sodium hyaluronate (SH) in the treatment of temporomandibular joint disorders. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of sixty two TMJs in 34 males and 28 females aged 20-65 years comprised the study material. The patients' complaints were limited mouth opening, TMJ pain, and joint noises during function. Patients were randomly divided into 2 groups in which arthrocentesis plus intra-articular injection of sodium hyaluronate was performed in 1 group and only arthrocentesis was performed in the other group...

PURPOSE: Bone loss following extraction is maximum in horizontal dimension. Height is also reduced which is pronounced on the buccal aspect. Various surgical procedures are available to correct the bone volume viz. GBR, onlay bone grafting, alveolar distraction and sandwich osteotomy. Sandwich osteotomy has been found to increase the vertical alveolar bone height successfully. OBJECTIVES: The objective of the study was to assess the effect of alveolar segmental sandwich osteotomy on alveolar height and crestal width...

OBJECTIVE: Mandibulectomy with disarticulation is usually carried out without reconstruction in Low-Income-Countries. Lower standards of living are usually acceptable and adapted to, in poor societies. This study compares patient's self-assessment of social approval among reconstructed and non-reconstructed cases of mandibulectomy with disarticulation in a resource-poor African setting. MATERIAL AND METHOD: This questionnaire-based study documented patient's self-assessment of social approval of themselves following mandibulectomy with disarticulation...

The aim of this study is to investigate the position and course of the mandibular canal through the ramus, angle and body of mandible using computed tomographic (CT) imaging pre-operatively and to relate these predetermined values intra-operatively to perform sagittal split ramus osteotomies. Pre-operative CT scans were taken and four points were marked at mandibular foramen, mandibular angle, mandibular body and midpoint and different dimensions of IAN were measured to localize the inferior alveolar nerve...

INTRODUCTION: Diversities exists in incidence, etiology and epidemiology of facial fractures among male and female individuals due to various reasons. Many of the epidemiological studies published during the millennium have shown male predilection. This study was carried to evaluate the etiology, patterns and distribution of facial fractures among different age groups in women. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This Retrospective epidemiological study dealt with a total of 302 women with 422 fractures in maxillofacial region during a period of June 1st 2005 to May 31st 2015 at Mamata Dental College and Hospital, Khammam, Telangana, India...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to establish global survival rates and potential prognostic factors for mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MC) of the salivary glands in patients diagnosed at the Dr. Eduardo Cáceres Graziani National Institute for Neoplastic Diseases (INEN), Lima, Peru, between 2002 and 2012. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was an observational, analytical and longitudinal (information reconstructed in time) retrospective cohort study. Data were obtained from clinical records and used to determine the overall survival (OS) rate at 2 and 5 years, and the individual percentage survival for each prognostic factor using the actuarial technique...

INTRODUCTION: Extractions are routine procedures in dental surgery. Traditional extraction techniques use a combination of severing the periodontal attachment, luxation with an elevator, and removal with forceps. A new technique of extraction of maxillary third molar is introduced in this study-Joedds technique, which is compared with the conventional technique. METHODS AND MATERIAL: One hundred people were included in the study, the people were divided into two groups by means of simple random sampling...

BACKGROUND: Wound healing is a complex and dynamic process and a thorough knowledge of the basics of physiology of wound healing is a must to implement principles of chronic wound care. Understanding wound healing at multiple levels-biochemical, physiologic, cellular and molecular provides the surgeon with a framework for basing clinical decisions aimed at optimizing the healing response. OBJECTIVE: This review article describes the classification of wounds and aims to highlight the fundamentals of wound repair, enumerating the dressings used commonly and also, the newer concepts of wound healing...

PROBLEM: During palatal fenestration procedure the vascularised, respiratory nasal lining is often sacrificed inadvertently. It normally functions to keep the inhaled air warm, humid and dust free. CONCLUSION: This vascularised nasal lining when uninvolved oncologically can easily be preserved. Preservation of the vascularised nasal lining shall decrease the leakage of nasal secretions and aid in the healing of reconstruction of the defect when local or regional flaps are used...

Once incision and drainage of fascial space abscess is performed, irrigation of deep spaces with saline and antibiotic solution should be done daily for effective elimination or reduction of infection. Various advocated aids for irrigation into deeper areas are: small pediatric nasogastric feeding tubes, French catheter, polyethylene irrigation tubes and scalp vein infusion set. All these aids have major inherent disadvantages like, they tend to kink inside the deep spaces limiting the reach of irrigating solution into deeper spaces, are not readily available in dental departments and have to be discarded after every use...
