    Chronic sclerosing sialadenitis of the sublingual gland: case report and literature review

    Filippos Thomopoulos, Nikolaos G. Nikitakis, Argyrios Daskalopoulos, Evangelia Piperi, Nikolaos Kolomvos, Alexandra Sklavounou
    Chronic sclerosing sialadenitis (CSS) is a chronic inflammatory condition of uncertain etiology, primarily affecting the submandibular glands. It has recently been proposed that CSS belongs to the immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related disease spectrum, although the exact relationship between these two entities requires further elucidation. Our aim is to present a case of bilateral CSS of the sublingual glands and discuss the possible underlying pathogenetic mechanisms. A 66-year-old woman presented with a 7-month history of an asymptomatic firm swelling of the floor of the mouth. Clinically, a... Read more

    Ameloblastic fibro-odontoma in a 9-year-old boy

    Tatsuo Okui, Soichiro Ibaragi, Tsuyoshi Shimo, Kiyofumi Takabatake, Mariko Fujita, Nur Mohammad Monsur Hassan, Akira Sasaki
    Ameloblastic fibro-odontoma (AFO) is a rare, benign mixed odontogenic tumor. A 9-year-old Japanese boy was referred to Okayama University Hospital in December 2013 for the evaluation of an unerupted tooth in his right lower mandible. A panoramic radiograph showed a well-defined multilocular radiolucent lesion extending from the right first molar to the ramus of the mandibular, containing radiopaque foci. The first molar was impacted by the lesion. The tumor was easily enucleated from the cortical bone, and the follicle of the first molar was removed. The first molar was preserved in the... Read more

    In straight wire pre-adjusted orthodontic fixed appliances, the information required to position the teeth in the three axes is included in the placement of brackets at the facial axis point (FA). The accuracy of bracket placement is mandatory for this technique because any dissimilar approach will not fully satisfy the functional requirements to obtain an ideal occlusion with a correct posterior disclusion. Thus, this article aimed to provide a technical note to obtain a Customized Bracket Placement Chart to achieve an accurate indirect bracket placement involving the temporomandibular... Read more

    Ingy Farag Ismail Abouelfotouh, Ola Mohamed Ibrahim Fahmy, Adel Ezzat Khairy, Dina Mohamed Salah Eldine
    Aim: In the management of patients with discolored teeth, would home bleaching alone or in combination with in-office bleaching give better tooth color stability than in-office bleaching? This study aimed to test the effect of different bleaching techniques on color change, stability, and hypersensitivity. Methods: A total of 21 patients were collected and randomly divided into 3 equal groups (n = 7), the first group in-office treatment with 25% hydrogen peroxide, the second group at-home bleaching with 9.5% bleaching treatment), and the third group in-office and at-home as a combined...

    Correlation of elevated mast cell and micro-vessel densities with lymph node metastasis in oral squamous cell carcinoma

    Kalpana Nakandala, Anura Suraweera, Primali Jayasooriya
    Aim: Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is a major health problem in Sri Lanka. Tumor-node-metastasis (TNM) staging system is the tool which is used to determine the extent of surgery in patients with OSCC. However, some patients may receive over-treatment with TNM staging. Mast cells can be found in the oral mucosa. Mast cells secrete different angiogenic factors stimulating angiogenesis which is important in metastasis of tumors. This study aimed to evaluate the mast cell density (MCD) and micro-vessel density (MVD) in OSCC and correlate it with nodal metastasis. Methods: The study... Read more

    Aim: This study aimed to evaluate the serum ceruloplasmin (CP) level after non-surgical periodontal therapy in chronic periodontitis patients. Methods: A prospective controlled study was conducted on 80 subjects. The study populations were divided into 2 groups: group 1 included chronic periodontitis patients (study group, n = 40), and group 2 included periodontally healthy subjects (control group, n = 40).

    Use of sugammadex in a patient with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease under general anesthesia

    Naoki Itoh, Hiroshi Hoshijima, Risa Takeuchi, China Nakamura, Yoshinori Iwase, Hiroshi Nagasaka, Tsuyoshi Sato, Tetsuy Yoda
    Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is an inherited heterogeneous group of peripheral nerve disorders with characterized by weakness and sensory loss in the distal limbs. General anesthesia was induced with propofol, rocuronium, and remifentanil. At the end of the surgery, we administered a total of 150 mg sugammadex. The patient could lift his head and arms, open his eyes. Then we extubated tracheal tube. We successfully used sugammadex in a patient with CMT to reverse rocuronium-induced neuromuscular blockade. However, muscle relaxation might not be measured accurately in CMT patients.... Read more

    Mandibular defect reconstruction utilizing preoperative 3D modeling, plate pre-bending and a novel triad graft: a case report

    Jon D. Wagner, Jeffrey P. Wagner, Stephen A. Wagner
    The reconstruction of boney defects of the mandible are a challenge in surgical therapy despite advances in bone grafting. This case study details a 30-year-old female who sustained a gunshot wound to the mandible leaving a 5 cm boney defect. This defect was reconstructed utilizing preoperative three-dimensional (3D) planning, an accurately pre-bent reconstruction plate, and a novel “triad” construct of autogenous bone graft, demineralized bone matrix, and an osteoprotective membrane. This reconstruction workflow allowed maintenance of the contour of the mandible and bone regeneration while... Read more

    Dilemmatic presentation of linear IgA disease: a case report

    Roopashri Rajesh Kashyap, Gopakumar R. Nair, Rajesh Shanker Kashyap
    Linear IgA disease is a rare blistering disease affecting the skin and less often the oral mucosa. This disease has a varied clinical presentation especially when the disease affects the oral mucosa. Certain drugs, autoimmune diseases, infection, chronic renal insufficiency, and malignancies have been implicated as the etiologic factors of this disease. The gold standard for diagnosis of linear IgA disease is direct immunofluorescence on fresh tissue. The immunofluorescence will demonstrate a homogeneous linear deposition of immunoglobulin A along the basement membrane. Multiple therapeutic... Read more

    Papillary cystadenocarcinoma of the sublingual gland: case report and literature review

    Polytimi P. Paschalidi, Nikolaos G. Nikitakis, Dimosthenis Igoumenakis, George Kostakis
    Papillary cystadenocarcinoma (CAC) a rare malignant salivary gland tumor which commonly arises in the major glands, mainly the parotid, and less frequently in the minor salivary glands. Localization in the sublingual salivary gland is very rare. The authors present a case of papillary CAC originating from the right sublingual gland in a 78-year-old female. A review of the literature revealed only 3 previously published detailed cases (in addition to 2 cases as part of larger series) of papillary CAC of the sublingual gland. The salient demographic, clinical, and histopathologic findings of... Read more

    A case of periradicular surgery: apicoectomy and obturation of the apex, a bold act

    Lino Lucio Locurcio, Rachel Leeson
    This paper reports a case of a recurrent periapical cyst treated with enucleation of the lesion, apicoectomy, and root end obturation on a lower left first molar. In the case of conventional root canal treatment failure, non-surgical retreatment is the preferred option in most of the cases. Several factors such as a complex root canal system or previous procedural accidents may impede the success of non-surgical retreatment. The authors have performed root-end resection and preparation under local anesthesia on a lower left first molar; The root canal filling is placed within the new cavity... Read more

    Neem: a magical herb in endodontics

    Harpreet Singh, Mandeep Kaur, Jaidev Singh Dhillon, Munish Batra, Jyotsna Khurana
    For thousands of years, humans have been using herbal remedies to cure and prevent various illnesses. Out of many herbal products, neem has numerous properties which have promoted its use in both the medical and dental fields. Use of neem has been mentioned in alternative medical specialties, such as Ayurveda, Unani and Homeopathic medicine. Endodontic therapy aims to eliminate microorganisms from the root canal system. In endodontics, irrigating solutions play a significant role because of their antimicrobial activity. Their use becomes even more significant when handling infected... Read more
