Aim: To assess the cases of ameloblastoma retrospectively for various parameters. Materials and Methods: Ninety-one previously reported cases of ameloblastoma from Government Dental College and Hospitals, Nagpur, were included in this study. Data were collected considering parameters such as age, sex, symptoms, radiographic, histopathology, treatment modalities, and recurrence. Our findings were also compared with world literature. Results: The average age was 32.5 years. Mostly men complained of an asymptomatic swelling and duration of less than one year. Posterior segment and vertical ramus of mandible was the frequently involved site. Radiographically, multilocular appearance was noted more than 60% of the cases. Plexiform and unicystic ameloblastoma occurred frequently. Surgery was the treatment of choice in this review. Recurrence was noted in more than 10% of the cases. Conclusion: There are variations in our review in comparison to reported literature.

Empathy plays an important role in healthy dentist and patient relationship. Hence, the aim of the study is to (a) to measure the self-reported empathy levels among dental undergraduate and postgraduate students. (b) To review the trend of changes in empathy level with experience, age, and gender among dental undergraduate and postgraduate students.This cross-sectional, questionnaire-based study was carried out in two private dental institutions situated in Sri Ganganagar, India, with a sample size of 978. Data were obtained from the 1The majority of the students was female in a equivalent ratio of 1338:618. There were significant differences in empathy scores by gender and age (Dental educators should consider the likely decline in empathy among students as early as possible and adopt communication teaching strategies to promote the development of empathy and reduce the risk of further decline.

Soft-tissue calcification is always pathological. Metastatic calcification is calcification of soft tissues owing to hyperphosphataemia with or without hypercalcaemia. Metastatic calcification of oral cavity is extremely rare. A case report of metastatic calcification of the floor of the mouth with atypical radiologic and clinical picture is presented here along with a review of earlier reports. A chance finding of the granular oral mucosa on palpation led to a radiographic examination revealing granular calcifications of the floor of the mouth. Blood chemistry and hormone analysis revealed chronic renal failure and hyperparathyroidism. A diagnosis of metastatic calcification secondary to renal failure was made and the treatment was aimed at correcting the renal failure without any intervention for the asymptomatic calcifications. Key differences between the present case and other cases reported in the literature are outlined. © 2015 The Authors. Published by the British Institute of Radiology.

Purpose: The present study was aimed to investigate the variation of soft palate morphology in different age and gender groups. The correlations of radiographic velar length (VL), velar width (VW), pharyngeal depth (PD), and Need's ratio with soft palate variants were also studied in the North Indian subpopulation. Materials and Methods: The study sample consisted of 300 subjects aged between 15 and 45 (mean: 31.32) years. The velar morphology on lateral cephalograms was examined and grouped into six types. The results obtained were subjected to a statistical analysis to find the correlation between variants of the soft palate with gender and different age groups. Results: The most frequent type of soft palate was leaf shaped (48.7%), and the least common was crook shaped (3.0%) among both the genders and various age groups, showing a significant correlation. The mean VL, VW, and PD values were significantly higher in males and significantly correlated with the types of soft palate. A significant correlation was observed between the mean VL, VW, PD, and Need's ratio with various age groups, showing an inconsistent pattern with an increase in age. The types of soft palate, gender, and Need's ratio were also significantly correlated, with an overall higher mean value of the Need's ratio among female subjects and the S-shaped soft palate. Conclusion: The knowledge of a varied spectrum of velar morphology and the variants of the soft palate help in a better understanding of the velopharyngeal closure and craniofacial anomalies. © 2014 by Korean Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology.

Treatment of gingival recession is essential to rectify the esthetic and functional deficiencies of the patient and to combat further periodontal destruction. However, treating multiple recession cases is quite challenging, and therefore requires constant modifications of the prevalent treatment strategies as per the severity of the condition. The objective of this case report was to evaluate the effectiveness of coronally advanced flap (CAF) technique without vertical incisions using CAF brackets (CAF+B) for treating a patient presenting with class II gingival recession defects in relation to maxillary anteriors. Complete root coverage was observed, and the results were consistent even after 6 months. The current case report demonstrates good outcomes of the CAF + B technique without the use of any additional soft tissue grafts or vertical incisions, therefore, endorsing the promising potential of the CAF + B technique in multiple gingival recession cases.

A talon cusp is a supernumerary structure projecting from the dento-enamel junction to a variable distance towards the incisal edge of an anterior tooth. It consists of enamel, dentine and a variable amount of pulp tissue. Hyperactivity of the enamel organ during morpho-differentiation has been attributed to its formation. It has esthetic and functional concerns. Reports of a mandibular talon cusp are rare in the literature. To the best of our knowledge, only 14 cases have been reported, of which only 2 cases in mandibular left central incisors. We report the second instance of a talon cusp in the lingual aspect of the mandibular left central incisor and the first such report in a patient of Libyan origin. A talon cusp is an odontogenic anomaly, which can cause occlusal interferences, displacement of the affected tooth and speech difficulties. Early diagnosis of a talon cusp helps in selecting the appropriate treatment procedure and to avoid future complications.

Anterior crown fractures are a common form of traumatic dental injuries that mainly affect the maxillary central incisors in children and teenagers.(1) Traumatic injuries of the teeth involve varying degrees of damage to the supporting soft tissues, or the teeth itself. In the pre-adhesive era, fractured teeth needed to be restored either with pin retained inlays or cast restorations that sacrificed the healthy tooth structure and were a challenge for clinicians to match with the adjacent teeth.(3) With the advent of adhesive dentistry, the process of fragment reattachment has become simplified and more reliable. This study reports a case of fragment reattachment of the maxillary right central incisor.

Radicular cyst (RC) is the most common odontogenic cyst of inflammatory origin affecting the jaws; involves the roots of the carious or traumatic non-vital tooth. Different therapeutic modalities, such as nonsurgical endodontic therapy or surgical enucleation with primary closure, decompression etc., were proposed for the management of such lesions. Presenting a case of a 28-year-old otherwise healthy male patient who reported with pain and swelling with respect to tooth #41, 31. Diagnosis of infected RC at a rare location was established on the basis of clinical, radiographical and fine needle aspiration cytological examination. Looking after the clinical characteristics, origin, extension, size of cystic lesion and patient cooperation; nonsurgical endodontic therapy utilizing Bhaskers hypothesis was opted. One year post-operative result suggested that nonsurgical endodontic therapy along with minimally invasive treatment utilizing Bhaskers hypothesis is an effective tool to transform infected radicular cystic lesion to healthy periapical periodontal tissue.
