The following case report describes the treatment of a 16-year-old female patient with complete transposition of maxillary first premolars and canines. Retained deciduous maxillary canines and buccal eruption of permanent maxillary canines led to non-consonant smile arc of the patient and obliteration of buccal corridors. Mechanics for correction were individualized based on factors such as facial pattern, age, malocclusion, tooth-size discrepancy, stage of eruption, and magnitude of the transposition. Thus an attempt was made to align transposition by maintaining order of transposed canine and first premolar and attain a consonant smile arc with a normal buccal corridor width. Source

Central ossifying fibroma (COF) is a rare benign fibro-osseous neoplasm which has a predilection for mandible and is encountered in middle aged women. It arises from mesenchymal blast cells of the periodontal ligament, and with a potential to form fibrous tissue, cementum and bone. It is a well circumscribed lesion mainly comprising of fibrous tissue with varying amounts of bone or cementum or osteo-cementum like tissue. We present an uncommon case of COF of the maxilla in a 35-year-old male who presented with a pus discharging sinus in the maxilla. Due to the bizarre size of the lesion we have termed as ‘giant’ COF. There is extensive facial asymmetry on the right side with obliteration of the maxillary antrum, deviation of the nose and upward displacement of the orbit. © 2015, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research.

A nasoalveolar cyst is a rare, non-odontogenic soft tissue cyst encountered in the anterior maxillary labial sulcus as an asymptomatic soft tissue swelling. Often, patients with these cysts report them to the dental clinic where they are mistaken for odontogenic lesions by the dental surgeon, especially if concomitant dental problems are present. They cannot be detected by routine conventional dental radiography as they are peripheral, lying within the mucosa thereby posing a diagnostic challenge. We document a case of a 47-year-old woman with a nasoalveolar cyst. © 2015 BMJ Publishing Group. All rights reserved. Source

The concept of field cancerization has been ever changing since its first description by Slaughter et al in 1953. Field cancerization explains the mechanisms by which second primary tumors (SPTs) develop. SPTs are the tumors, which develop in the oral cavity in succession to the primary malignant tumors, which might vary in duration ranging from few months to years. Conceivably, a population of daughter cells with early genetic changes (without histopathology) remains in the organ, demonstrating the concept of field cancerization. This review explains the concept of field cancerization and various field theories along with molecular basis of field formation. © 2014 South Asian Journal of Cancer. All Rights Reserved. Source

Background: Extraction of mandibular third molars are somewhat a matter of interest because of its malpositioning, curved roots, proximity to vital structures due to this the procedure is often associated with post operative complications like pain and trismus. The extraction of third molar was classified in four grads according to the difficulty of the procedure. Aims: The purpose of this paper is to find any significant relationship between grading of extraction and post operative complications like pain and trismus. Materials and Methods: A total number of 180 patients need to go for extraction of third molar was included in the study. The variables taken into account were grading of extraction, pain six hour post operatively trismus one day after extraction, and trismus five day after extraction. The four grades of extractions as described by Parent in 1974 were statistically analyzed by computing pearson product moment correlation coefficient with post operative pain and trismus first and fifth day to find any co relation between them. Results: The grading of extraction was found significantly correlated with post operative pain, trismus one day after and fifth day of surgery. Source
