Full mouth rehabilitation always requires meticulous treatment planning and careful attention for procedures. All the efforts are directed towards reestablishing a state of functional efficiency in which, the teeth and their periodontal structures, the muscles of mastication and temporomandibular joint mechanisms are all functions together in synchronous harmony. This clinical report describes the oral rehabilitation of a patient with multiple missing and decayed teeth. The specific treatment objective being restoration of masticatory function, esthetic rehabilitation and improved self confidence.

Dental implants are popular treatment option for replacement of missing teeth. Teeth loss causes alveolar bone resorption. Implant placement may require sufficient bone volume. Therefore bone augmentation can be done prior to implant placement. For bone augmentation autograft, allografts, xenografts and synthetic materials can be used. After augmentation implants can be placed successfully. In this case report autogenous block graft is taken for augmentation. Rehabilitation of edentulous region is done by implant placement.

Goal of prosthodontics is rehabilitation of missing oral and extra oral structures with restoration of normal function of mastication, speech, swallowing, esthetics etc. Defects of orofacial region, whether congenital or acquired, affects the patient physically and psychologically leading to poor quality of life. Benign and malignant lesions in the oral region are common, which requires surgical corrections. Surgical intervention of such lesions results in defects, affecting the function and esthetics of an individual. This case report explains prosthodontic rehabilitation of maxillectomy defect caused due to surgical excision of Ameloblastoma with Hollow bulb obturator with Cast partial denture. By fabrication of this prosthesis it covers the anatomic defect which forms communication among the oral cavity, nasal cavity and maxillary sinus.

DOI : 10.36348/sjodr.2020.v05i03.010
The aim of this systematic review is to determine the effectiveness of arthroscopic lysis and lavage as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool for management of internal derangement of temporomandibular joint. Method: A systematic review will be conducted according to the guidance of Cochrane Collaboration and the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) statement. Search strategy will be tailored according to Population, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome and Study design (PICOS) approach. Ovid Medline, CINAHL Complete, ScienceDirect, Web of Science, Cochrane centre register for clinical trials and Pub-med data bases will be searched from1975 to 2020. Truncation, Boolean and Proximity operators will be applied as appropriate. Cochrane’s tool for risk of bias assessment will be used for randomised trials and for non-randomised studies, Newcastle Ottawa Scale will be used. Narrative synthesis will be conducted for all the included studies and if an adequate data were available, a meta-analysis will be conducted. Significance: The study will systematically assess the therapeutic potential of arthroscopic lysis and lavage and define its position in the ladder of management of internal derangement of temporomandibular joint in comparison to other lines of treatment. It will also investigate the diagnostic limit of temporomandibular joint arthroscopy in assessment of disc status and its ability to detect adhesions and perforations in comparison to magnetic resonance imaging.

Aim: The present study aimed to identify undergraduate student’s perceptions of endodontic treatment through a survey, which analyzed student proﬁles and their difﬁculties. Materials and methods: Fifty students who had experienced endodontic, laboratory or clinical procedures responded a survey based on their experiences, concerning their perceptions, experience and self conﬁdence levels. Results: About 50.9% of the undergraduates noted having some trouble when taking periapical radiographs. About 67% of the undergraduates had problems identifying root canals. Whereas in case of intracanal medication and irrigation doesn’t pose any significant difficulty. Conclusion: This survey study helped to discover various loop-holes in the education agenda which, if changed correctly, would be of great help to both the quality of undergraduate’s performance and the time dentistry schools spend trying to deal with these issues.

Objective: Develop a valid and reliable scale to assess the attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors related to eating foods associated with the periodontal disease among low-income women in Texas. Study Design: This is a cross-sectional study. Methods: The study was conducted with 150 low-income women ages 18-50 years, residing in Central Texas. A 21-item Dental Nutrition Attitudes, Beliefs, and Behaviors Scale was developed. Content validity was assessed by a panel of experts. Construct validity was determined via Exploratory Factor Analysis; internal consistency of the scale was measured by Cronbach’s alpha. Results: The internal consistency for the final scale was 0.802, and the test-retest reliability was 0.99. Factor analysis generated three factors: Attitudes, Beliefs, and Behaviors, with an explained variance of 42.38. Conclusions: These results confirmed the validity and reliability of the new dental scale. This instrument may aid in the assessment of attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors regarding eating foods associated with periodontal disease in low-income women.
