Oral submucous fibrosis has a high rate of morbidity because it causes a progressive inability to open the
mouth, resulting in difficulty in eating and consequent nutritional deficiencies. Oral submucous fibrosis also has a
significant mortality rate because it is a premalignant condition and malignant transformation has been noticed. Here, we
report the role of collagen membrane in surgical management of OSMF Grade-IV.

Artificial denture ingestion is a multidisciplinary problem. Not only artificial but fixed dentures are also at
high risk of ingestion or aspiration in case of their spontaneous or traumatic dislodgement. Clinical presentation of
denture ingestion varies with the site of impaction and its associated complications with passage. It is an uncommon
problem requiring awareness of many specialists including dentists, surgeons, otolaryngologists and anesthesists.
Complications include obstruction, bleeding, perforation fistulae with neighbour organs. Here a patient presented to
casualty with symptoms of sub-acute intestinal obstruction after alleged history of artificial denture ingestion. Patient was
operated and denture was retrieved from transverse colon.

Endodontic management of foreign body in root canal of 10 year child: a case report
Dr. Kanupriya Rathore
Page no 163-167
Over the course of time, dentistry has evolved from a primitive form of dental care to modern day use of
preventive treatment modalities. In today’s modern dentistry with the availability of various new obturating materials, it
was interesting to accidently diagnose the root canal being obturated with stainless steel wire. Here, we report a unique
case where the root canal of a 10 year male patient was obturated with stainless steel wire following which the patient
developed persistent pain and infection.

Forensic dental fieldwork requires an interdisciplinary knowledge of dental science. Barr bodies are known to
arise from inactivation of x- chromosome in a female cell, so it also has been used as a reliable method for sex
determination. The objective of this study is to evaluate the reliability and accuracy Buccal Barr bodies for sex
determination. The study was conducted on 100 subjects, (50 males and 50 females) with an age range of 20 to 36 years.
The method was applied on each subject and the data was collected. After obtaining the data it was coded, analysed,
decoded, interpreted and statistically analysed. The sensitivity and specificity of buccal barr bodies was found to be 24%
and 84% respectively with an accuracy of 54%. It is concluded that buccal Barr bodies have the accuracy (54%). Hence it
can be one of the reliable parameter but more studies are required to justify role in forensic odontology for sex
determination, but certain circumstances like delay in sample staining, storage incapability can alter the results. Hence,
more samples with accurate sample collection and storage technique can provide better results.

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) was first described by Choukroun et al. in France. It has been referred to as a
second-generation platelet concentrate, which has been shown to have several advantages over traditionally prepared
PRP. It’s a new generation of platelet concentrates geared to simplified preparation without biochemical blood handling.
This article describes the evolution of this novel platelet concentrate and its applications in the field of Oral and

Waxes, included beeswax, as one of the most versatile natural substances ever used by man, have already been
used in people’s life widely for a long time. Current dental waxes are mixture of paraffin’s, microcrystalline waxes,
natural and synthetic raw materials. However, waxes characterize same disadvantage as plasticity and law stability of
volume after melting and cooling. Aim of this study was to investigate the influence of different paraffin’s and
microcrystalline waxes on the properties of base plate waxes. Fife new compositions (S1-S5) were compared to four
commercial products like base plates from Modelling wax, Modelling wax, Modellierwachs rosa standard, Modelling
wax Ceradent. The plasticity and the volumetric shrinkage of the waxes after melting and cooling were measured.
Samples S1-S5 to reflect of the requirements of the ISO standard and have the proper plasticity. Changing the paraffin’s
and microcrystalline waxes have a big influence on the plasticity of the final composition. Microcrystalline waxes
decrease the wax contraction. Shrinkage after heating up to 110oC and cooling to 68oC is changing from one wax to other
Modelling wax (Interdent) 4.5%, Modeling Wax Ceradent (Spofa) 8.9%, Modelling wax (Bredent) 9.8%,
Modellierwachs rosa (Bego) 11.9%. During the re-melting process (inside wax warmers) waxes can change their
properties like flowing and volumetric shrinkage due the thermal degradation. Such process can be reducing by producer
adding thermal stabilizer, but this material can be consumed after several cycles. From clinical point of view is not
recommended to heat and re-melt the base plate waxes for long time in wax warmer especially at higher temperatures.
