Yet a role for papanicolaou test in cervical neoplastic lesions
K. R. Chatura
Full Text PDF |   Abstract



ABSTRACT

Carcinoma of the cervix in the past century was regarded as painful and a terrible disease with no way of relief or cure from the disease. However, now thankfully the situation is different, yet many women worldwide are being diagnosed, and their numbers are decreasing in the past 40 years by the introduction of screening programs.

Full Text PDF |   Abstract



ABSTRACT

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a breakthrough in the field of technology which is rapidly progressing and has captivated the minds of researchers across the globe. Ever since, its inception dentistry has witnessed some of the exceptional achievements. Hence, this situation demands every dentist to get acquainted with this technology as the future of dentistry is abutting the implementation of its applications. While, in no ways, AI can replace the role of a dentist, it is of prime importance to be aware of the possibilities to integrate this technology in the future for a gratifying and successful practice.

3 . CASE REPORT
Molarization of premolar with dentin dysplasia Type Ia - A rare unilateral entity
Vidhi Mathur, Rishi Thukral, Ami Desai, Rinky Ahuja
Full Text PDF |   Abstract



ABSTRACT

Human dentition exhibits variations in anatomic features. When the size and morphology of teeth are analyzed, a range exists within which a particular tooth should be probably placed, but some teeth show variance from this range. Mandibular premolars (MnP) are among such teeth. This paper presents a rare case of unilateral megadontia with dentin dysplasia, showing the presence of molariform appearance of second MnP which appeared radiographically as rootless tooth with deformative pulpal morphology. Clinically, the patient suffered from temporomandibular joint disorder which may be because of the occlusal instability caused by the lingually placed molarized premolar and so appropriate preventive therapy was recommended.

Central odontogenic fibroma - A Report of a quiet and concealed tumor in maxilla
K. V. Arun Kumar, Apoorva Mowar, D. Deepa, Anshul Mowar
Full Text PDF |   Abstract



ABSTRACT

Central odontogenic fibroma (COF) is a rare benign non-epithelial tumor arising from odontogenic mesenchymal tissues with reported incidence of only 0.1-12.8%. The WHO has defined COF as “a rare neoplasm characterized by varying amounts of inactive looking odontogenic epithelium embedded in a mature, fibrous stroma.” The COF case reported here discusses the incidence, etiology, clinical/radiographic presentation, management, and prognosis along with literature review.

5 . CASE REPORT
The enigma behind complete external replacement resorption of replanted permanent incisor - A case report
S. Sneha, Anupama Kalappanavar, Rajeshwari G. Annigeri
Full Text PDF |   Abstract



ABSTRACT

Traumatic injuries to the anterior teeth are common among the younger individuals which may lead to undesirable sequelae like resorption resulting in loss of the tooth. As this age group is in a phase of constant growth, it becomes pivotal to save the tooth and surrounding bone until the facial growth is completed. Besides, it is crucial in preventing the psychological impact resulting from loss of the anterior tooth. Hence, to confront this challenging situation, awareness regarding the need for timely management needs to be disseminated among the public in addition to paying heed to the guidelines for the management of traumatic tooth by the dentist.

Keywords: Avulsion, replantation, resorption

6 . CASE REPORT
Maxillary antrum obliterated by a dentigerous cyst associated with an ectopic third molar: A case report
K. V. Arun Kumar, Subia Ekram, Mukesh Soni, D. Deepa
Full Text PDF |   Abstract



ABSTRACT

Dentigerous cyst is one of the most common types of odontogenic cyst of developmental origin which is associated with the crowns of un-erupted, embedded, or impacted teeth. Around 70% of the cysts are found in mandible whereas 30% is found in the maxilla. Most commonly, they have been found to be associated with lower third molars followed by maxillary canines. However, dentigerous cyst associated with an ectopic tooth lying within the maxillary sinus is quite rare, and only a few cases have been reported in the literature. In the present case report, an ectopic molar associated with dentigerous cyst within the right maxillary sinus causing its obliteration, almost completely, has been reported. Surgical enucleation and third molar removal were successfully done with Caldwell-Luc approach and patient had an uneventful recovery with resolution of symptoms.
