This case report records the replacement of two failed endodontically treated mandibular molars with one piece zirconia implants in a patient with metal hypersensitivity. The two molars were atraumatically extracted and curetted to remove any remnants of a periapical granuloma. Immediate implant placement with primary stability was achieved using one piece WhiteSky® Bredent zirconia implants which were restored after four months with a zirconia crown. One year follow up revealed successful osseointegration with optimal form and function. © 2017, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research. All rights reserved.

Aim: The Objective of our study is to investigate the in vitro antibacterial activity of acetone bark and seed extract of Acacia catechu willd and Aesculus hippocastanum(Horse chest nut) against Enterococcus faecalis. Materials and Methods: The inhibitory effect of acetone bark extract of Acacia catechu willd and Aesculus hippocastanum seed extract were tested against E.faecalis by using the Broth dilution method. Results: The acetone bark extract of Acacia catechu exhibited antibacterial activity against E.faecalis with minimum bactericidal concentration of 10mg/ml whereas, Aesculus hippocastum acetone seed extract does not show any antibacterial activity at concentration ranging from 62μg/ml to 10mg/ml. Conclusion: The acetone bark extract of Acacia catechu willd was found to be bactericidal in action against tested bacterial strain.

Background: Rheumatoid Arthritis and Chronic Periodontitis are two chronic inflammatory disorders which share a similar pathophysiology. Previously many studies have proposed a relationship between both the diseases. Therefore, the aim of the study was to explore the co-relation between grading of Rheumatoid arthritis and severity of chronic periodontitis in south Indian population. Material And Methods: Sixty consecutive patients attending a rheumatology clinic were examined for their levels of periodontitis and rheumatoid arthritis. Patients without rheumatoid arthritis was selected on age and gender matched served as controls. Probing pocket depth, clinical attachment loss and plaque score were measured for Periodontitis. Measures of rheumatoid arthritis include DAS scores. Severity of rheumatoid disease activity score was correlated with the severity of Periodontitis and it was analyzed with the control group. Results: No difference in the plaque score between the rheumatoid arthritis and the control group was observed. More pocket depth and more number of missing teeth were found in the rheumatoid arthritis group. No significant difference was seen in the severity of rheumatoid arthritis disease group with the severity of chronic Periodontitis. But when only the severe chronic Periodontitis group was compared with the rheumatoid activity disease group there was a significant difference noted. Conclusion: The result of the study shows a positive co-relation between the rheumatoid arthritis and chronic Periodontitis. The severity of rheumatoid arthritis disease group increases with the severity of chronic Periodontitis. © 2017, Pharmainfo Publications. All rights reserved.

Background and Objectives: Biometric authentication is an important process for the identification and verification of individuals for security purposes. There are many biometric systems that are currently in use and also being researched. Tongue print is a new biometric authentication tool that is unique and cannot be easily forged because no two tongue prints are similar. The present study aims to evaluate the common morphological features of the tongue and its variations in males and females. The usefulness of alginate impression and dental cast in obtaining the lingual impression was also evaluated. Materials and Methods: The study sample included twenty participants. The participants were subjected to visual examination following which digital photographs of the dorsal surface of the tongue were taken. Alginate impressions of the tongue were made, and casts were prepared using dental stone. The photographs and the casts were analyzed by two observers separately for the surface morphology including shape, presence or absence of fissures and its pattern of distribution. Three reference points were considered to determine the shape of the tongue. Results: The most common morphological feature on the dorsum of the tongue was the presence of central fissures. Multiple vertical fissures were observed in males whereas single vertical fissure was a common finding in females. The fissures were predominantly shallow in males and deep in females. The tongue was predominantly U shaped in males and females. V-shaped tongue was observed in 25% of females. Conclusion: Tongue prints are useful in biometric authentication. The methodology used in the study is simple, easy and can be adopted by dentists on a regular basis. However, large-scale studies are required to validate the results and also identify other features of the tongue that can be used in forensics and biometric authentication process. © 2017 Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology | Published by Wolters Kluwer - Medknow.

External cervical resorption (ECR) is the loss of dental hard tissue as a result of odontoclastic action; it usually begins on the cervical region of the root surface of the teeth. The etiology, predisposing factors, diagnosis, and management of ECR have been reviewed here. Effective management and appropriate treatment can only be carried out if the true nature and exact location of the ECR lesion are known. This paper reports on the management of a case of external cervical root resorption (ECRR), which involved root canal treatment and removal of the resorbing area of the affected tooth as well as filling the resorbed area with mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) and resin-modified glass ionomer filling material (RMGIC). The defect was filled with bone graft material and guided tissue regeneration (GTR) membrane. This case highlights the importance of using MTA and successful management of cervical resorption with a stable uneventful clinical recovery.

Periodontitis, is an inflammatory state of the tooth supporting structures and if left untreated, the disease continues to progressive bone destruction and subsequent tooth loss. The increasing prevelance of periodontal disease paved way to the development of new diagnostic tests that could detect the presence of active disease,the course of the disease and its response to treatment. Bone is a metabolically active tissue and undergo continuous remodelling, a process that largely relies on the activity of osteoclasts to remove bone and of osteoblasts to form bone. In health,bone resorption and formation are coupled to each other and its long term maintenance of skeletal balance is brought about by the systemic hormones and local mediators.In contrasts,during disease there is a pronounced in balance in bone turnover. Bone biomarkers which are produced either in health or in disease state are tell tale markers which would be used to monitor the health status. This review highlights, the recent advances in the use of biomarkers of bone remodelling,that could facilitate the screening, diagnosis and management of periodontal diseases. © 2015, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research.

Composite Compound Odontoma is a rare odontogenic tumour most commonly occuring in the anterior region of maxilla. An 11-year-old female patient reported a complaint of missing left central incisor. Clinical and diagnostic investigation revealed an odontogenic mass in the region of 21. This rare case report appraises the clinical diagnosis, surgical and orthodontic intervention which was planned and performed for its management.

A radicular cyst associated with carious teeth is a very common odontogenic lesion in the oral cavity, but calcifications in residual radicular cysts are quite rare.We report one such case where a routine pre-implant radiographic assessment revealed a mixed periapical radiopaque radiolucent lesion in the right maxillary central incisor region. Histological and radiographic studies show that there is a slow increase in the mineralized deposits within the cyst lumen with time. This becomes prominent histochemically in cystsmore than 8 years old and radiographically 6 years later, as seen in our case. In this paper we would like to highlight the importance of a residual radicular cyst with calcifications in the differential diagnosis of a mixed periapical radiopaque radiolucent lesion. © 2011 The British Institute of Radiology.
