THERMOPLASTIC ENDODONTIC OBTURATION – THERMAFIL SYSTEM: CASE REPORTS

ABSTRACT: Success of non-surgical root canal treatment is predicted by meticulous cleaning and shaping of the root canal system, three-dimensional obturation and a well-fitting‚ leakage-free coronal restoration. Various techniques have been developed to achieve the proper obturation of root canal system including the lateral  compaction, vertical  compaction and carrier based obturation. Over the years, pitfalls with one technique have often led to the development of newer methods of obturation. This …Read More

MODIFIED IMPRESSION TECHNIQUE FOR MAXILLARY FLABBY RIDGE

ABSTRACT: Fibrous or flabby ridge is a mobile or extremely resilient alveolar ridge which becomes displaceable due to fibrous tissue deposition. It is more prevelant in anterior maxillary region. Conventional impression making leads to compression of the flabby rigde which tends to recoil and result in inadequate support, stability and retention of complete denture. This article presents a case report of modified impression technique for managing flabby tissue in anterior …Read More

SUBMANDIBULAR SALIVARY GLAND SIALOLITHIASIS MANAGEMENT :A CASE REPORT

ABSTRACT:Sialolithiasis is a common disease of salivary glands. The submandibular gland is affected by a number of disease processes that may be difficult to distinguish clinically. Its superficial location makes it ideal for ultrasound evaluation and a useful adjunct to clinical examination.There is a slight male predominance.  More than 80% of salivary calculi occur in the submandibular gland or its duct.This occurrence along with more deep and proximally placed common …Read More

Abstract – MANAGEMENT OF GINGIVAL GRANULOMA PYOGENICUM: A CASE REPORT

ABSTRACT: Pyogenic granuloma is one of the inflammatory hyperplasias seen in oral cavity. It is   exaggerated as a response to any minor trauma, low-grade local irritation, poor oral hygiene and is commonly seen during pregnancy. Pyogenic granuloma of oral cavity is known to involve the gingiva commonly. Extragingivally, it can occur on the lips, tongue, buccal mucosa and palate. It is frequently associated with difficulty in mastication and esthetic problems. …Read More

TREATMENT OF A PERIODONTAL ABSCESS BY MODIFIED KIRKLAND FLAP COMBINED WITH OSSEOUS REGENERATIVE THERAPY UTILISING AN ALLOPLASTIC GRAFT: A CASE REPORT

ABSTRACT: A case of recurrent abscess was seen in a 28 year old male driver with poor oral hygiene and copious amounts of supragingival and subgingival plaque and calculus. Clinically there was evidence of moderate amount of bone loss which was f ascertained by radiographic examination by utilising Gutta Percha point no. 30 as radio opaque marker. The patient was then educated about the shortcomings of his oral hygiene routine …Read More
