Introduction: The bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw was first referred to in 2003. Bisphosphonates action is focused on the osteoclasts. The drastic inhibition of the osteoclastic function is harmful for the jaws which are the only bones of the human skeleton in relative contact with the external environment. The adverse effects of the bisphosphonate-related therapy include the pathology for which they are prescribed, the atypical fractures in pathological bone. Method: The aim of this research was to analyze the risk factors and the treatment methods in case of osteonecrosis of the jaws...

This review encompasses different pre-clinical bioengineering approaches for periodontal tissues, maxillary jaw bone, and the entire tooth. Moreover, it sheds light on their potential clinical therapeutic applications in the field of regenerative medicine. Herein, the electrospinning method for the synthesis of polycaprolactone (PCL) membranes, that are capable of mimicking the extracellular matrix (ECM), has been described. Furthermore, their functionalization with cyclosporine A (CsA), bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2), or anti-inflammatory drugs' nanoreservoirs has been demonstrated to induce a localized and targeted action of these molecules after implantation in the maxillary jaw bone...

The Hyperparathyroidism with Jaw-Tumours syndrome is caused by mutations of the CDC73 gene: it has been suggested that early onset of the disease and high Ca2+ levels may predict the presence of a CDC73 mutation. We searched for large deletions at the CDC73 locus in patients with: HPT-JT (nr 2), atypical adenoma (nr 7) or sporadic parathyroid carcinoma (nr 11) with a specific MLPA and qRT-PCR assays applied on DNA extracted from whole blood. A Medline search in database for all the papers reporting a CDC73 gene mutation, clinical/histological diagnosis, age at onset, Ca2+ , PTH levels for familial/sporadic cases was conducted with the aim to possibly identify biochemical/clinical markers predictive, in first diagnosis, of the presence of a CDC73 gene mutation...

This case report discusses a modified technique for treatment of a central giant cell lesion (CGCL) in children, where a recontouring procedure is performed prior to the treatment with intra lesional corticosteroid. We discuss the advantages of this less invasive technique, specially considering the early age of the patient and its bone growth, as well as the conservative approach for lesions in those cases. The treatment of an 8-year-old female patient exhibiting CGCL in anterior region of mandible with bone expansion is described...

Centrally occurring salivary gland tumors are rare. Because of a considerable overlap between the clinical and histopathological features, this group of tumors often produces a diagnostic difficulty to the clinicians and oral pathologists. Acinic cell carcinoma (ACC) is an unusual, low-grade, malignant salivary gland tumor that represents approximately 2% of the salivary gland tumors with almost 90% arising in the parotid gland. The rest involve the submandibular and the minor salivary gland. ACC of the jaw is extremely rare and, to our knowledge, only 8 cases have been reported in the English literature...

Introduction and Objectives: Odontogenic cysts are the most common cysts of the jaws and are formed from the remnants of the odontogenic apparatus. Among these odontogenic cysts, radicular cysts (RCs) (about 60% of all diagnosed jaw cysts), dentigerous cysts (DCs) (16.6% of all jaw cysts) and odontogenic keratocysts (OKCs) (11.2% of all developmental odontogenic cysts) are the most common. The behavior of any lesion is generally reflected by its growth potential. Growth potential is determined by measuring the cell proliferative activity...

Bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) worsens oral health-related quality of life. Most BRONJ occurs in multiple myeloma or metastatic breast cancer patients treated with bisphosphonate/chemotherapeutic combination therapies. Cyclophosphamide (CY), an alkylating chemotherapeutic drug, is used to treat multiple myeloma, although its use has been recently reduced. The aim of this study was to clarify the effects of CY dose on tooth extraction socket healing when CY is used with or without bisphosphonate in mice...

Xanthomas are histiocytic lesions of the skin, soft tissue and bone and are generally considered to be reactive in nature. When they arise in the bones of the jaw, they are referred to as central xanthomas. New evidence supports the hypothesis that central xanthomas are a separate and distinct entity from their extragnathic counterparts. Noonan syndrome (NS) is an autosomal dominant disorder that has been associated with giant cell lesions which also commonly occur in the jaw. We present a case of a 15year-old-male with NS who presented with a radiolucent lesion of the mandible that on excision, was found to be a central xanthoma...

Introduction: Cemento-osseous dysplasia is a jaw disorder characterized by a reactive process in which normal bone is replaced by connective tissue matrix. There are different Cemento-osseous dysplasia entities. The treatment of these lesions, once diagnosed by radiology, is not required because generally they are asymptomatic. The localization is in the tooth-bearing areas of the jaws and its distribution is symmetric. Case Reports: In this case report, a 57-year-old Caucasian female patient was referred to our attention complaining of painful inflammatory events localized in the right angle of the jaw...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this split-mouth design pilot study was to assess microbiologic effects of two topical anti-infective treatment protocols on dental implants subject to ligature-induced peri-implantitis in dogs, without the use of systemic antibiotics. METHODS: Eight adult Beagle dogs each received four dental implants in contralateral edentulated mandibular jaw quadrants. After 8 wks, silk ligatures were installed to be removed following another 8 wks. After additional 6 wks induced peri-implantitis lesions were subject to either antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) or a topical tetracycline HCL (50 mg/mL) solution...

Dental care providers are likely to see patients who take bisphosphonates for various medical conditions, including osteoporosis, bony metastatic tumors, multiple myeloma, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. Bisphosphonates accumulate in areas of high bone turnover, leading to suppression of bone turnover and the aging of keratocytes. These adverse effects predispose the maxillary and mandibular bone to development of medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ), specifically among oncology patients treated with intravenous bisphosphonate therapy...

Antiresorptive-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (ARONJ) is a rare but severe side effect of antiresorptive treatment with bisphosphonates or RANKL-antibody denosumab in patients with malignant diseases or osteoporosis. Whilst osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) related to the administration of bisphosphonates (BPs) has been investigated for more than 1 decade now, only few data are available on denosumab-related ONJ, especially in patients with osteoporosis. From 2008 to 2016, 52 osteoporosis patients were treated with ARONJ in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, University Medical Center Freiburg, Germany...

INTRODUCTION: A carotid body tumor is a rare neoplasm, generally benign, that predominantly affects people between their fourth and fith decades of life. It manifests as a pulsatile and generally painless cervical mass with firm consistency, located below the angle of the jaw. Clinically it can cause localized pain, dysphagia, hiccups, hoarseness and hypersensitive carotid body syndrome. Surgery is the treatment of choice, bearing in mind the possibility of malignant transformation, peritumoral invasion and metastasis...

BACKGROUND: Although giant cell arteritis (GCA) is a well-known cause of transient and permanent vision loss, diplopia as a presenting symptom of this condition is uncommon. We compared symptoms and signs of patients presenting with diplopia from GCA to those from other causes. METHODS: This was a multicenter, retrospective study comparing the clinical characteristics of patients presenting with diplopia from GCA with age-matched controls. Demographic information, review of symptoms, ophthalmic examination, and laboratory data of biopsy-proven patients with GCA were compared with those of age-matched controls presenting with diplopia...

Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FLCOD) is a rare, extensive bone metabolism disorder, which occurs only in the jaw bone. It is usually asymptomatic for a long time and discovered incidentally during a radiological examination. The characteristics of FLCOD in the initial stages are similar to those of periapical granuloma or jaw cyst, which may lead to misdiagnosis. After the lesion is mature, the imaging findings show that radiopaque with a thin radiolucent peripheral halo, which is crucial for the diagnosis of FLCOD, but other jaw lesions have similar imaging findings...
