Morphological variations like single-rooted molar in primary dentition are scarce. Understanding the root canal anatomy and variations is necessary for successful root canal therapy. The purpose of the present article is to report successful endodontic treatment of primary left mandibular first molar with an abnormal morphology of a single root. This case report highlights the importance of knowledge and its applications in the management of anomalous anatomic variants which play a crucial role in the success of endodontic treatment. 2014 BMJ Publishing Group Ltd.

Human beings are being subjected to a variety of disease processes, a majority of which can be cured. However, cancer remains an endangering disease that affects various body parts. Though cancers can be prevented by various therapeutic modalities, the patient survival and the prognosis are questionable, as they are detected at very late stages. The aim of improving the prognosis lies in an early detection of the cancer, which can be brought about by an analysis of the changes in the cellular biomolecules.

Objective: The objective of this study was to comparatively evaluate the effectiveness of submucosal fentanyl when administered in conjunction with oral midazolam during pediatric procedural sedations. Study design: Twenty three uncooperative ASA type I children who met the selection criteria were randomly assigned to receive either submucosal fentanyl (3μg/kg) or placebo, along with oral midazolam (0.5mg/kg). A triple blind, 2-stage cross-over design was adopted so that each child received both the regimens. Results: Transient oxygen desaturation was observed in 4 children who were sedated with the combination of oral midazolam and submucosal fentanyl. The overall success was 73.91% with oral midazolam and submucosal fentanyl regimen and 47.83% for oral midazolam and submucosal placebo regimen. The chances of 'satisfactorily' completing a 45 minute dental procedure in an uncooperative pediatric patient was 2.8 times more, when submucosal fentanyl was used along with oral midazolam. Conclusion: Submucosal fentanyl appears to improve the short working time associated with oral midazolam. But the oxygen desaturation associated with this regimen necessitates further studies to evaluate the efficacy of this combination at relatively lower doses before being used routinely for pediatric procedural sedation and analgesia.

The subject of sleep medicine, for dental profession in general and prosthodontists in particular, continue to offer great challenges and opportunities in terms of diagnosis, treatment planning and treatment based on qualitative evidence. Although the role played by the prosthodontists is still in its infancy, there is much to learn and understand in the rapidly evolving field of sleep medicine as the recognition of co-managing patients with sleep disorders by the prosthodontists is fast becoming a reality. This article discusses at length the prosthodontic perspectives of the research in the field of sleep medicine, particularly on obstructive sleep apnea. © 2014, Armed Forces Medical Services (AFMS).

Dental caries an ever growing public health problem is not much amenable to existing preventive measures. The aim of this study was to compare and evaluate the effectiveness of mouth rinse containing chicken egg yolk antibodies generated against whole cell antigen and cell associated glucosyltransferase enzyme (CA-GTF) of Streptococcus mutans in preventing recolonization of S.mutans in dental plaque of human volunteers. The experimental period was up to 210 days. At the end of the experimental period, in the experimental group treated with IgY to whole cell S.mutans reduction in reestablishment of S.mutans from base line value was 67.66% and the group treated with IgY to CA-GTF it was 89.66%. But in the control group treated with non-immune IgY reestablishment was greater than its baseline value with the increment of 9.67%. The promising results in the experimental studies vividly reveal that immune IgY to CA-GTF has significant influence in preventing caries development.
