Background: In oral carcinoma much effort has been made to predict the prognosis of patients but a sound understanding of underlying cell biology is likely to need progress. Recently, attention has been directed towards tumour associated tissue eosinophils and mast cells and their role in the biologic behavior of tumours. Aim: The retrospective study was used to evaluate the influence of tumour associated tissue eosinophils and mast cells on prognosis of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Material and methods: The follow-up, of histopathologically diagnosed thirty cases of OSCC, was carried out for minimum period of 3 years. Special stains are wonderful they allow us to see which we can not see clear with routine H&E stain.Tissue sections were stained with special stains, Carbol Chromotrope for tissue eosinophil and Toluidine blue for tissue mast cell staining. Result: The results of the present study shows that increase infiltration of tissue eosinophils and mast cells in OSCC, associated with favourable prognosis. Conclusion: We concludes that infiltration of tissue eosinophils and mast cells are indicators of favourable prognosis in OSCC. Thus quantitative assessment of eosinophils and mast cells are the most important aspects of the microscopic evaluation of OSCC. © 2011 Debta P, et al.

Acupuncture (Zhe¯n Ji) (acus (needle) + punctura (to puncture)) is the stimulation of specific points along the skin of the body involving various methods such as penetration by thin needles or the application of heat, pressure, or laser light. Acupuncture (Zhe¯n Ji) aims to treat a range of medical and dental ailments, though is most commonly used for pain relief. This article reviews about the various possible roles of acupuncture (Zhe¯n Ji) in clinical dental practice. Acupuncture (Zhe¯n Ji) has potential in supplementing conventional treatment procedures by its diverse applicability outreach. Role of acupuncture (Zhe¯n Ji) in dental practice has been well supported by clinical trials. Its role in alleviating facial pain, pre-operative and post-operative dental pain has led to its widespread application. Its role as sole analgesic for treatment procedure has to be tested. Its It is a thought that acupuncture (Zhe¯n Ji) may prove an indispensible supplement to conventional treatment modalities and more of clinical trials and studies are required to prove the efficacy. Acupuncture (Zhe¯n Ji) is not a miracle cure and is not going to replace the drill. However, the technique can be a supplement to conventional treatments in TMDs, facial pain, pain management Sjoegrens syndrome, and in phobias and anxiety. The application and use of Acupuncture (Zhe¯n Ji) comes with some side effects. Proper training needs to be obtained before commencement of any procedure related to acupuncture (Zhe¯n Ji). Various training programs are offered to train clinical practitioners the apt method to use acupuncture (Zhe¯n Ji).

Aim: The aim of this study was to compare effect of different metal coping designs on fracture resistance of porcelain in metal ceramic restorationsMaterials and Methods: Fracture resistance of porcelain was assessed in porcelain fused to metal crowns with three different coping designs i.e. metal coping extension on labial surface upto gingivoaxial line angle, metal coping extension 1mm short of the gingivoaxial line angle and metal coping with 0.4mm wide labial metal collar. For crowns without labial metal collar margin; shoulder porcelain was used to build the labial cervical margin of the crowns.Results: Results were assessed with statistical analysis using the student unpaired‘t’ test. Visual examination of the fractured specimens of group A, B and C showed remarkably similar failure modes with nearly all specimens failing through a shear fracture of porcelain from load point to facial margin of the crown.Conclusion: Within the scope of this study, it was observed that the mean facture strength of the samples with shoulder porcelain labial margins having metal coping design extending uptogingivoaxial line angle of the finish line was highest as compared to samples with shoulder porcelain labial margins having metal coping design 1mm short of gingivoaxial line angle & samples having porcelain fused to metal coping design with 0.4mm wide metal collar. © 2014, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research.

The trial compared wound healing clinically, histologically and morphometrically after the use of fibrin sealant and sutures for periodontal flap closure. Ten patients were selected for this split-mouth randomized controlled clinical trial. On the test site fibrin sealant (F) was applied for flap closure after periodontal flap surgery (n = 10) and on the control site sutures (S) were used (n = 10). Clinically wound healing was observed at 7, 14 and 21 days and biopsy was taken on the 8th day. At seventh day better healing was observed in fibrin sealant site. Histologically mature epithelium and connective tissue formation was seen in fibrin sealant site with increased density of fibroblasts (F = 70.45 ± 7.22; S = 42.95 ± 4.34, p < 0.001) and mature collagen fibers. The suture site had more number of inflammatory cells (S = 32.58 ± 4.29; F = 20.91 ± 4.46, p < 0.001) and more number of blood vessels (S = 11.89 ± 3.64; F = 5.74 ± 2.41, p = 0.005). Fibrin sealant can form a better alternative to sutures for periodontal flap surgery.

Loss of the continuity of the mandible destroys the balance and the symmetry of mandibular function, leading to altered mandibular movements and deviation of the residual fragment towards the surgical side. This clinical report gives a brief review of resection guidance prosthesis and describes the fabrication of an acrylic guidance flange prosthesis. Successful intercuspal position was accomplished through the use of the guidance appliance, combined with physiotherapy in a patient who underwent a hemisection of the mandible, subsequent to treatment for an ameloblastoma.
