Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumour also known as Pindborg tumour, is a rare benign odontogenic neoplasm of locally aggressive behavior. It is thought to arise from the epithelial element of the enamel origin which are reminiscent of the cells in the stratum intermedium layer of enamel organ in tooth development. The tumour is characterized histologically by the presence of polygonal epithelial cells, calcifications and eosinophilic deposits resembling amyloid. Non-calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumours are very rare and unusual...

Abraham Vinod Korath, Ratna Padmanabhan, Anantanarayanan Parameswaran
Anterior alveolar anatomical constraints involving presurgical orthodontic incisor repositioning are often unrecognized and overlooked during orthodontic-surgical treatment planning. A clear discrimination of this cortical limitation is invaluable during the planning stage as it permits the consideration of alternative approaches like the anterior maxillary osteotomy for effecting the required incisor movement. A simple reference line termed the "Cortical Boundary Line" is introduced to facilitate the clinical translation of this information and through suitable case illustrations, the construction of the reference line using the conventional lateral cephalometric radiograph and its usefulness as an adjunct in aiding decisions on orthodontic incisor decompensation is highlighted...

INTRODUCTION: Many surgical techniques have been described for the treatment of TMJ ankylosis, but no strategy has been uniformly agreed upon underscoring the difficulty of the problem. Despite new guidelines and updated methods, treating patients with TMJ Ankylosis remains a challenge as the incidence of recurrence after treatment is soaring. This study exemplifies our experience in using an unsullied method to treat TMJ Ankylosis to restore the structure of TMJ in conjunction with convalescing secondary maxillofacial deformity...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The dislocation of mandibular condyle is a clinical condition in which the head of condyle has been displaced out of the glenoid fossa. Complete dislocation of the mandibular condyle can occur in anterior, posterior, lateral and superior direction. Among these dislocations, bilateral superolateral dislocation of mandibular condyles is quite rare and often misdiagnosed. Because of its rare occurrence and unusual clinical course, the best treatment is debatable. PATIENTS AND METHOD: We present the first case series of true bilateral superolateral dislocation of intact mandibular condyles (Type 2B) without fracturing the Zygomatic arch, associated with symphysis fracture...

BACKGROUND: A ranula is a cystic lesion in the floor of the mouth, formed either as a retention cyst or pseudocyst as a result of extravasation of mucus in the surrounding tissue. It may be treated by micro-marsupialization, marsupialization or excision of lesion with or without the associated salivary gland. Marsupialization is usually achieved by cutting a slit and thereafter stitching the edges such that the epithelium of the exterior becomes continuous with that of the interior of a cyst...

INTRODUCTION: Reliable profound mandibular block anesthesia is questionable when depositing the anesthetic solution at the lingula. The Gow-Gates technique is an useful alternative to the classical inferior alveolar nerve block and the incidence of unsuccessful anesthesia may be as high as classical technique. The aim of this study is to compare the clinical efficacy, degree of patient acceptability, advantages, disadvantages and limitations of the classical and Gow-Gates techniques for providing anesthesia in patients undergoing bilateral symmetrical surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molar under local anesthesia...

BACKGROUND: Trigemino-cardiac reflex is a physiologic response of the body to pressure effects in the region of distribution of the trigeminal nerve. Oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures can induce the development of this reflex, which leads to significant changes in the heart rate and sinus rhythms. This study intends to evaluate the effects of this reflex in patients with facial fractures and its subsequent management. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of thirty-seven patients with facial fractures who reported to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Basaveswar Teaching and General Hospital, Gulbarga during a period from July 2015-March 2016 were considered for the study...
