As one of the most demanding tasks facing the restorative dentist, planning and executing an occlusal rehabilitation should not be undertaken lightly. The stakes are high and failure is costly. Treatment planning decisions should be undertaken on the basis of scientific evidence, where this is available, or on the basis of documented experience where it is not. Identify the major biological and clinical considerations used when planning an occlusal rehabilitation. As one of the most demanding tasks facing the restorative dentist, planning and executing an occlusal rehabilitation should not be undertaken lightly. The aim was to present a case of occlusion rehabilitation in a patient with multiple carious teeth and few grossly decayed teeth. A 21 yr old female patient had grossly decayed 36,45, 46 and had class -I caries in her 26, 27 16,17. Root canal treatment was done in 36, 45, 46, Followed by Glass Fibre Post in 45. Then Full crown coverage was given in all the teeth treated. Finally composite restoration was done w.r.t 26, 27, 16, 17.

Nuclear medicine imaging is one of the latest and cutting-edge innovations in maxillofacial diagnosis. Nuclear medicine imaging often play a significant role in the diagnosis and treatment of oral and maxillofacial diseases.
The artificial manufacture of gamma ray emitting isotopes like gallium-67 or Tc99m and development of gamma scintillation cameras has made the diagnostic modality of radio nucleotide a reality. This modality allows for dynamic visualization of basic uptake and secretion from many of tissues of human body. This technique can be used to detect areas of increased metabolism, termed as hot spot or areas of decreased metabolism called as cold spot. This technology is used in detection of metastatic tumors, salivary gland pathologies, TMJ tumors and lymphatic pathology.
Newer imaging techniques such as Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) are being used more frequently in the evaluation of head and neck cancer. PET can be used in pretreatment staging process, during radiotherapy planning and in the post treatment work-up.
The aim of this poster is to portray the applications of Nuclear medicine in the oral and maxillofacial diagnosis as well as their merits and demerits.

Dental amalgam has served as an excellent and versatile restorative material for many years, despite periods of controversy.
For the present, amalgam should remain the material of choice for economic direct restoration of posterior teeth. All alternative restorative materials and procedures, however, have certain limitations. The importance of direct-placement, aesthetic, tooth - colored restorative materials is still increasing. Amalgam restorations are being replaced because of alleged adverse health effects and inferior aesthetic appearance.
As the value of amalgam restorations is increasingly being questioned in modern dentistry, the clinical potential of amalgam restorations in general has been evaluated. The longevity of dental restorations is dependent on many factors, including those related to materials, the dentist, and the patient. Dental amalgams have successfully served the profession for over a century. Both factors will likewise influence the longevity of any new restorative concepts. Nevertheless, amalgam restorations remain the standard against which alternative materials are evaluated.

Enterococcus Faecalis: The Endodontic Enigma

Bacterial invasion of the root canal system is crucial for the onset and maintenance of periapical diseases. Thus, one goal of endodontic treatment is to kill microorganisms in the root canal system. Although biomechanical preparation and root canal shaping, irrigants and intracanal medicaments effectively reduce microbiota, these procedures do not completely eliminate bacteria and there are chances of failure. Enterococcus faecalis accounts for approximately 80% of the enterococcal infections, and it is highly resistant to antibiotics. E. faecalis is the most prominent and occasionally the only bacterial species to be isolated from root canals of treatment failed teeth

There has been a rise in Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) in dentists because of extended workdays, awkward postures, prolonged standing/unsupported sitting, and a host of other problems caused by poorly designed workstations, improper work habits, and instruments that are difficult to manipulate. The current workstation in most dental offices requires that the practitioner lean forward, flex his neck forward and laterally, hold his shoulders abducted and his arms flexed, with this position being held statically for most of the workday. The human body is not built to handle these kinds of stresses, which place them at great risk for developing MSDs.
