ABSTRACT

Background: Dental appointment is a very stressful condition which raises children's anxiety. It is generally seen that children are stuck up to the mobile phone playing interactive games or even browsing internet. We have an app for possibly everything. Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of dental apps in the management of child's anxiety and behavior for various treatment procedures.

Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of dental apps in the management of child's anxiety and behavior for various treatment procedures.

Materials and Methods: Forty children were made to use mobile dental app called 'My Little Dentist' on android device. The anxiety level was noted before and after using the app using the 'Chotta Bheem-Chutki scale.'

Results: After the use of mobile app, patients total complete blood count anxiety level was reduced from 60% to 21.6% proving that mobile dental app before the treatment reduce the fear and anxiety in children toward the dental treatment and dentist.

Conclusion: The mobile dental app was found to be very useful in the dental setup to reduce the fear and anxiety of the pediatric patients.

ABSTRACT

Background: The topic of type of loading for a dental implant is currently in debate in dentistry for the past 2 decades. The study was aimed to compare the effectiveness of immediate loading protocol over conventional loading protocol in respect to bone loss and clinical parameters in mandibular posterior region which is common edentulous region having sufficient amount of bone.

Materials and Methods: A prospective clinical comparative study was on 20 participants assigned into Group A (n = 10; delayed loading) and Group B (n = 10; immediate loading). The participants were given Adin Touareg-S implants with titanium Grade 4 abutments conventionally in Group A and immediately in Group B. The outcomes evaluated were radiographic assessments marginal bone loss (MBL) and clinical soft-tissue assessments plaque index (PI), gingival index (GI), PI, and calculus index (CI). The unpaired t-test was used to compare the intergroup means of these parameters keeping the level of significance was set at P < 0.05.

Results: The MBL comparisons between Groups A and B have not yielded any significant differences (P > 0.05 when compared from the 3rd, 6th, 9th, to 12th month) after implant placement. The mean value of PI, GI, and CI was not significantly different in the intergroup comparisons in the 3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th month comparisons.

Conclusion: There were no significant differences in the MBL, GI, PI, and CI between the immediate and conventionally loaded implants in mandibular posterior region. The immediate loading can be considered as an alternative to conventional loading in the mandibular posterior region.

ABSTRACT

Antibiotics are chemical substances that can destroy and inhibit the development of specific microorganisms, such as infectious bacteria and fungi. Since antibiotics do not directly affect the host cells, they are often prescribed on a just-in-case basis. In conjunction with antibiotic resistance, the occurrence of health consequences with sensitization response alongside super infection has generally been reported with antibiotic usage. The current study explores the use of antibiotics in dental practice and offers components to facilitate the ethical use of such medications.

ABSTRACT

Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a benign fibro-osseous lesion in which the fibrous connective tissue containing abnormal bone replaces normal bone. FD is linked to GNAS1 guanine nucleotide-binding protein, alpha-stimulating activity peptide 1, and the gene mutation resulting in the abnormal proliferation and differentiation into pre-osteoblast. In this case report, we present a case of 9 years old boy with monostotic FD affecting the left maxilla causing bony expansion and asymmetry of the right side of face.

ABSTRACT

Dentigerous cyst contributes around 20-24% of all the odontogenic cysts of jaw and is the second most common odontogenic cyst affecting the jaw bone. The prevalence of dentigerous cysts involving the permanent ramus is just 1.5%. Radiologic evaluation of the cystic lesion is compulsory to decide the duration of decompression for large lesion, the time of enucleation, and also to evaluate the time required for the new bone formation. In this case report, we present a case of a dentigerous cyst associated with ectopically erupted mandibular third molar in close proximity to the posterior border of the mandibular ramus which was treated by enucleation procedure under general anesthesia.
