Background: Metastatic deposits in the regional lymph nodes have always been a subject of great interest in oncology. There is a need for the detection of micrometastases in the lymph nodes in oral carcinomas by serial sectioning, so that any missed tumour cells in the routine single sectioning technique could be detected by this. The present study was aimed at the detection of micrometastases in the cervical lymph nodes in oral squamous cell carcinomas- by serial sectioning. Materials and Methods: This study was done on 16 cases with 119 lymph nodes which measured 1cm or less in greatest diameter, by a single section routine method and this was compared with serial sectioning at 100μm intervals. All the 2269 sections were stained with the routine Hematoxylin and Eosin staining for the detection of micrometastases. Results: The detection of micrometastases by the serial sectioning method was 2.03%. The percentage was the same for both the one section and the serial sectioning methods. Conclusion: The serial sectioning of the lymph nodes did not reveal any other detection than that was revealed by the one section method. But definitely, the serial sectioning method appears to be the best feasible method to evaluate micrometastases. Source

Introduction: The main reason for seeking orthodontic treatment for Class II malocclusions is aesthetic improvement. Growth modification treatment procedures offer better results for a patient with significant potential growth. Aim: The aim of this cephalometric clinical study was to distinguish skeletal and dental corrections on skeletal class II division I growing subjects with Twin Block therapy (TB) and the changes were assessed using SO-analysis by Pancherz. Materials and Methods: Strict diagnostic protocol viz. growing individuals with horizontal growth pattern, skeletal class II due to retrognathic mandible with positive VTO, bilateral class II molar relation, minimal crowding in either arch or overjet more than 5mm was used. Out of 28 selected cases,17 patients received TB therapy and 11 patients were maintained as control group. Standard removable TB appliances with lower incisor capping were delivered to treatment group. The horizontal advancement was about 8mm and 2-3mm vertical opening between the upper and lower central incisors were maintained for all the cases. The mean time interval between the initial (T1)and post treatment (T2) cephalograms of Twin-Block group was 11 month, with a range of 8 month to 13 month. In the control group, the mean time interval between the first (C1)and second (C2) cephalometric films was 12 month, with a range of 10 month to 14 month. T1and T2 cephalograms were traced and S-O analysis was used to segregate dental and skeletal effects. Statistical Analysis: SPSS software was used for statistical analysis. Results: Skeletal Changes: In this study, the mean movement of maxilla was 0.67mm which represents significant restriction of forward maxillary growth in contrast to control groups. Dental Changes: In this study the maxillary molars appear to move distally with a mean value of 0.13mm. Comparing this to the movement of maxillary jaw base itself, maxillary distal movement of molar is less. But still it contributes to Class II correction. Conclusion: The overjet reduction and molar relation correction are more skeletal in nature. © 2014 Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research. All Rights reserved. Source

Patients frequently report sensitivity of prepared abutment teeth during the temporization period and after the final cementation of full coverage restoration. Purpose of this clinical investigation was to evaluate the effectiveness of desensitizing agents in reducing the pre- and postcementation sensitivity for full coverage restorations and to compare the relative efficacy of three in office applied desensitizing agents in relieving the postcementation sensitivity with the use of glass ionomer luting cement. Materials and methods: This study consisted of 30 patients requiring either full coverage restoration or 3 unit fixed partial denture. Total of 40 restorations (n = 40) were made and were randomly assigned into four groups comprising 10 restoration (n = 10) in each group. Group C control where no desensitizer application was done, group BB applied with BisBlock dentin desensitizer (Bisco Inc.), group ST applied with Systemp desensitizer (Ivoclar Vivadent), group GC applied with GC Tooth Mousse desensitizer (GC Asia). Desensitizer application was done immediately after the tooth preparation. Sensitivity of the tested abutment was determined by the patient response to cold, hot and bite stimuli and were recorded on visual analog scale (VAS). Sensitivity level scores was evaluated at 4 time intervals, i.e. 1 week after desensitizer application at baseline precementation appointment and others at 5 minutes, 1 day and 1 week postcementation appointment. VAS score data was statistically analyzed using one-way ANOVA followed by post hoc Tukey's test. Results: BisBlock and GC Tooth Mousse desensitizer resulted in statistically significant (p < 0.01) reduction in postcementation sensitivity of glass ionomer cement in comparison to Systemp desensitizer at 5 minutes, 1 week postcementation time interval with no statistical difference was seen between all desensitizer groups at 1 day postcementation. Application of BisBlock and GC Tooth Mousse desensitizer resulted in highly significant (p < 0.01) reduction in sensitivity level at the end of 1 week. Clinical significance: Desensitizer's application on the prepared abutment teeth is considerably effective in relieving both pre- and postcementation sensitivity for full coverage restoration over the short duration of time. Immediate reduction in postoperative sensitivity relatively in a short time period may be beneficial in terms of patient's comfort. Nonetheless, multicenter long-term clinical trials should be conducted to confirm the results. Conclusion: Efficacy of BisBlock and GC Tooth Mousse desensitizer was more in relieving the postcementation sensitivity of glass ionomer cement at various time intervals in comparison to Systemp desensitizer. In conclusion, application of desensitizers was beneficial to reduce the pre- and postcementation abutment sensitivity. Source

Salivary duct carcinoma (SDC) is a rare invasive malignancy arising in the ductal epithelium of the salivary glands. These are an uncommon but distinct group of highly malignant salivary gland tumours. These are usually seen in the major salivary glands, especially in the parotid gland. This malignancy was established as a distinct clinicopathological entity and was delineated from "adenocarcinoma (NOS)" in 1991 by the World Health Organization. Salivary duct carcinomas affecting the minor salivary glands have been reported in only 4% of the SDC cases and constitute 2% of all the salivary gland malignant neoplasms. Its biological behaviour is highly aggressive; the metastatic and the tumour-related death rates were 75% and 73%, respectively. In this article, wereport a case of a salivary gland carcinoma which was present in the palate of a 55-yearold male patient. Source

Fusion is the union of two tooth buds that are normally separated. Fusion is more frequent in deciduous teeth, particularly in the anterior region. The etiology of fusion is not known. It has been suggested that the pressure of adjacent dental follicles produces their contact and fusion before calcification. There is no difference between men and women in incidence. The term paradental cyst means that such type of cysts that are close proximity with the root of a tooth. A history of recurrent pericoronitis is reported usually and there is often the presence of a communication between the periodontal pocket and the cyst. We present a rare case report where in partially erupted mandibular third molar is fused horizontally with a supernumerary tooth with paradental cyst. Source
