ABSTRACT

Moebius syndrome is a congenital neurological disorder, which frequently shows facial diplegia with bilateral lateral rectus palsy, but there are variations. The definition and diagnostic criteria for Moebius syndrome vary among authors, it is defined as congenital facial weakness with abnormal ocular abduction. Deformities such as muscular dystrophies and mental retardation have also been associated with this syndrome. The list of signs and symptoms mentioned in various sources for Moebius syndrome includes more than 20 peculiar features. This review of literature includes classification and grading system of Moebius syndrome, their features, etiology, and management.

2.CASE REPORT

Odontogenic myxoma of the maxilla - A rare clinical sighting

ABSTRACT

Odontogenic myxoma (OM) is a benign tumor originating from primordial mesenchymal tooth forming tissues. Myxoma is a locally invasive intraosseous neoplasm that usually occurs in tooth bearing areas of jaws. Clinically, it is a painless, slow growing, and non-metastasizing tumor of jaw. Here, we report the case of OM in a 21-year-old male patient which had a large, expansile lesion of the left jaw extending to zygomatic, and infraorbital rim. This caused grotesque facial deformity within a short span of 6 months. However, complexity of such tumors increases as several characteristics overlap with those of other benign and some malignant tumors. The treatment plan should consider the age and sex of the patient and the site and size of the lesion. Research shows that surgical treatment of OM varies from simple enucleation and curettage to hemimaxillectomy. Recurrence rates are also reportedly high at around 25% when conservative approaches are taken. Here, wide excision of the tumor with hemimaxillectomy was planned, but further reconstructive surgery was delayed to rule out recurrence.

[Year:2020] [Month:March-April] [Volume:7 ] [Number:2] [Pages No:34-36] [No. of Hits: 132]


ABSTRACT

Avulsion is one of the most common traumatic injuries in school going children. Reimplantation is a successful treatment modality for the same. Although the procedure is most of the times delayed, it has shown to provide good aesthetics, functionality, and psychological benefits. The following case presented here is of an avulsed tooth with an 8-year follow-up. The case emphases the importance of each step in increasing the longevity of the implanted tooth.

4.CASE REPORT

Renovating dental ruins - Hope for the hopeless dentition case report on complete tooth supported rehabilitation

ABSTRACT

Full mouth rehabilitation poses one of the greatest challenges in restorative dentistry as it involves replacement of the lost tooth structure and also restores the lost vertical dimension. The rehabilitation of occlusion improves the function, which enhances the esthetics and also restores the health of the masticatory system including temporomandibular joint. There are various theories, philosophies, and techniques to restore the occlusion with their specific advantages and limitations. Often the choice of the technique is left to the operator’s decision based on availability of resources and presenting conditions. The ultimate goal can be achieved through a scientifically proven approach with principles of rehabilitation underpinning the approach. Sometimes, various options and approaches leave the clinician bewildered. On the other hand, the non-specialists who attempt to rehabilitate can deteriorate the existing dentition in its form and function. This case report endeavors to propose a simplified functional rehabilitation of form and function without compromising on the science and philosophy of rehabilitation in a patient whose dentition is compromised.

5.CASE REPORT

Inverted impacted mandibular third molar: An unusual eruption

[Year:2020] [Month:March-April] [Volume:7 ] [Number:2] [Pages No:42-44] [No. of Hits: 110]


ABSTRACT

Impacted tooth is the one which fails to erupt within the dental arch in the expected time. Inverted tooth can be explained as the malposition of a tooth in which the tooth is reversed and positioned upside down. Most commonly impacted teeth are third molars, with a frequency of 20-30%, and a higher incidence in women. This case report presented a 26-year-old male with pain in the lower right back tooth region and radiographic investigation revealed inverted impacted mandibular third molar which was surgically removed under local anesthesia.
