Though the fields of regenerative dentistry and tissue engineering have undergone significant advancements, yet its application to the field of implant-dentistry is lacking; in the sense that presently the implants are being placed with the aim of attaining osseointegration without giving consideration to the regeneration of periodontium around the implant. The following article reveals the clinical benefits of such periodontio-integrated implants and reviews the relevant scientific proofs. A comprehensive research to provide scientific evidence supporting the feasibility of periodontio-integrated implants was carried out using various online resources such as PubMed, Wiley-Blackwell, Elsevier etc., to retrieve studies published between 1980 and 2012 using the following key words: implant, tissue engineering, periodontium, osseo-integration, osseoperception, regeneration (and their synonyms) and it was found that in the past three decades, several successful experiments have been conducted to devise implant supported by the periodontiumthat can maintain form, function and potential proprioceptive responses similar to a natural tooth. Based on these staunch evidences, the possibility of the future clinical use of such implant can be strongly stated which would revolutionize the implant dentistry and will be favored by the patients as well. However, further studies are required to validate the same.

Recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) is one of the most common and painful ulcerative lesions of the oral cavity, but until now no cure has been recognized for it. Two patients diagnosed with minor RAS were treated in a single sitting with low level laser therapy using 940-nm diode laser. The lesions healed completely within 3-4 days and a follow-up for 1 showed no recurrence in these patients. According to the results of this study, low level laser therapy can decrease the healing time, pain intensity, size, and recurrence of the lesion in patients with minor RAS, and hence can be considered the most appropriate treatment modality for minor RAS, with greatest clinical effectiveness.

Aim: To evaluate the efficacy of chlorhexidine-thymol varnish (Cervitec Plus®) as an adjunct to scaling and root planing in the improvement of periodontal parameters. Material and methods: A split mouth randomized clinical trial was conducted in 25 subjects with chronic periodontitis receiving scaling and root planing alone and as an adjunct to chlorhexidine-thymol varnish (Cervitec Plus®) and chlorhexidine-thymol varnish (Cervitec Plus®) alone. Clinical examinations were performed at baseline, 1 month and 3 months. Results: Short term advantages were observed in the clinical parameters in subjects receiving scaling and root planing and an adjunct, chlorhexidine-thymol varnish (Cervitec Plus®) who showed the greatest improvement in the periodontal parameters at 3 months. Conclusion: Subjects with chronic periodontitis significantly benefit from scaling and root planing when used with an adjunct, chlorhexidine-thymol varnish (Cervitec Plus®). © 2012 Craniofacial Research Foundation.

Supernumerary teeth may be defined as any teeth or tooth substance in excess of the usual configuration of twenty deciduous, and thirty two permanent teeth. These are a relatively frequent disorder of odontogenesis, characterized by an excess number of teeth. Supernumerary teeth in the maxillary midline are common and can present both esthetic and pathologic problems that can be extremely difficult to treat. This article presents a case of delayed eruption of maxillary permanent central incisor as a clinical complication due to an impacted supernumery tooth (mesiodens) and its surgical approach.
