MONOPLANE OCCLUSION : A CASE REPORT

ABSTRACTS There are several schools of thoughts on occlusal schemes in complete denture and some clinician believe there should be cusps on the teeth and must be in complete harmony with the stomatognathicsystem.Some believe that cuspless teeth create minimum horizontal force to unseat denture. Monoplane occlusion imparts a sense of freedom to the patient and do not lock the mandible in one position. It eliminates horizontal force, which is more …Read More

USE OF GUNNING SPLINT FOR THE TREATMENT OF EDENTULOUS MANDIBULAR FRACTURE : A CASE REPORT

ABSTRACT Treating edentulous mandibular fracture is difficult in elderly patients due to compromised medical condition of the patient and various contraindications for the surgical approach. The complication rate of infection or malunion is higher compared to fractures in younger, dentulous patients. For such conditions, ‘Gunning splint’ is a better option as it provides close reduction and stabilization of mandibular fracture, thus improving the prognosis. KEYWORDS: Gunning splint .  Edentulous patient …Read More

THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX”A NEW APPROACH FOR SEVERE UNILATERAL SCISSOR BITE CORRECTION- CASE SERIES

ABSTRACT: Unilateral scissor bite is a relatively rare malocclusion. However, its correction is often difficult and a challenge for the clinician. Conventional treatment mechanics do not offer a complete solution for the correction of severe transverse discrepancy, especially in adult patients. These case reports demonstrates two adult cases describing innovative treatment modalities for correction of severe unilateral scissors bite. A series of two new methods of applying elastic force from …Read More

SALIVARY DUCT CARCINOMA- A CASE REPORT WITH IMMUNOHISTOCHEMISTRY PROFILE

ABSTRACT The salivary gland give rise to at least 24 histologically distinct tumors which account for about 2% of all primary salivary epithelial malignancies. Salivary duct carcinoma (SDC) is a rare malignant epithelial tumor predominantly occurring in major salivary glands, particularly parotid gland. Intraoral SDC involving minor salivary gland is uncommon accounting for 5% of all SDC. Histologically, it shows a striking resemblance to breast carcinoma of the ductal type, …Read More

PROSTHODONTIC MANAGEMENT OF MANDIBULAR RESORBED RIDGE USING PHYSIOLOGICAL IMPRESSION TECHNIQUE -A CASE REPORT

ABSTRACT Making a definitive impression of an edentulous arch can be challenging when the residual ridges present with less-than-ideal conditions. The objective is to develop a physiologic impression with maximum support of both hard and soft tissues. Tissues could be displaced during impression making and result in subsequent pathology, or they could be placed i.e. compression within the physiologic limits in order to maximize the support from the edentulous ridge. …Read More
