Mucoceles are common in oral cavity, but rare in pediatric patients. Diagnosis and management of mucocele is challenging. Surgical excision is an appropriate treatment modality with least recurrence and good prognosis. This is a case report of 12 year old with mucocele on the left side of the ventral surface of the tongue.

The placement of dental implants is becoming a routinely performed procedure in dental practice. Numerous techniques have been advocated to facilitate the placement of dental implants in a wide range of clinical scenarios. However, they are associated with their own share of patient related complications and discomfort. This article throws light on the various minimal invasive techniques available to facilitate implant placement with minimal complications and maximum patient acceptance.

The early loss of maxillary posterior teeth leads to maxillary sinus pneumatisation, reducing the alveolar ridge height, and thus posing challenge for implant placement. Owing to mechanical and anatomic difficulties, implant treatment in the atrophic maxilla represents a cumbersome task. The maxillary sinus floor augmentation procedure is still not universally accepted because of its complexity and its unpredictability. This condition may be treated with an elevation of the maxillary sinus floor, which is usually accomplished by lateral or transcrestal approach to the antrum. As an alternative to these augmentation procedures, a more conservative treatment option would be to either place short implants or to bypass the sinus floor. This case report emphasizes on maxillary sinus by pass with tilted implants in close proximity to the sinus wall, thus, avoiding sinus floor elevation & bone grafting procedures.

Ideal rehabilitation with the aid of dental implants is reliant on the presence of adequate bone volume and quality at the edentulous area. Various surgical techniques for bone grafting both in the form of natural and synthetic graft materials have been industrialized to enhance successful placement of dental implants in resorbed alveolar ridge. This review throws light on the numerous novel bone grafting techniques for dental implants.

Introduction: Smokeless Tobacco contains considerable nicotine much more than is contained in smoking tobacco. Smokeless Tobacco contains 28 carcinogenic agents, including nitrites and alkylating agents causing oral cancer. Ethanol is the principal ingredient of alcoholic beverages Acetaldehyde, a metabolite of ethanol play an important role in ethanol toxicity by cross linking the DNA and thus leading to DNA damage. Comet Assay was performed to assess DNA damage among users of Smokeless Tobacco and Alcohol. Method: Buccal epithelial cells were taken from 25 users of Smokeless Tobacco (Khaini) 25 users of Alcohol, 25 users of Khaini and Alcohol and 25 control subjects and Comet Assay was performed to assess possible DNA damage. Result: Highest increase in the comet tail length implicated DNA damage in users of Smokeless Tobacco and Alcohol, both as compared to the control subjects. Conclusion: This study demonstrated DNA damage among users of Alcohol, Smokeless Tobacco leading to the development of oral cancer.

Ameloblastomas are bening intraosseous lesions affecting maxillary jaws. They originate from the epithelium involved with the formation of teeth such as enamel, odontogenic rests of Malassez, reduced enamel epithelium and odontogenic cyst lining. Thus, the hypothesis of transformation of a dentigerous cyst into an ameloblastoma was suggested in the literature. These lesions are locally invasive and can grow to infiltrate soft tissues. The risk of recurrence after surgical treatment is important and a long term survey is indicated. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the diagnostic dilemma in front of a well-defined radiolucent lesion of the mandibule associated to an impacted wisdom tooth and the diffuclties on therapeutic decision. A healthy 34-year-old man referred to our dentistry department complaining about the recurrence of inflammatory episodes associated with tooth number 48. The radiological examination showed a large well limited radiolucent lesion related to tooth number 48, situated in the ramus region. The patient underwent tooth extraction and cystic enucleation. The anatomopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of a follicular ameloblastoma. Nevertheless, the cystic wall showed both a detigerous cystic portion in one part and a follicular ameloblastoma segment in another part, confirming the hypothesis of ameloblastoma transformation of a detnigerous cyst.
Nanotechnology has proven to be a boon to entire field of dentistry. This review article provides update about nanotechnology in orthodontics and various treatment modalities available with newer technology especially in field of dentistry.
