ABSTRACT

Commentary:
Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma (OSCC) has got poor survival rate when associated with lymph node involvement and metastasis. In spite of advanced methods of treatment, mortality rate of OSCC is high1-3. The mortality of OSCC is the reflection of metastasis, which complicates the management of a case. Metastasis is the process of dissemination of tumour cells through the circulation which finally get deposited and proliferate to form secondary tumours at a distant site4,5. Hence, this intermediate step of tumour cells getting into circulation is an important preliminary step of metastasis. So, early detection and characterization of these Circulating Tumour Cells (CTCs) can be important as a broad-spectrum strategy to monitor, prevent development and manifestation of metastatic disease there by improving the prognosis2,6,7. This review aims at understanding the mechanism of CTC, role of detecting CTC in improving prognosis of OSCC, and to understand the recent advances and application of CTC in OSCC.

Year:2020 | Month:Jan-June | Volume:9 | Number:1 | Pages No:1-2 | No. of Hits: 843


Commentary:

A massive hardship in endodontic treatment is the failure to eliminate bacterial biofilms during cleaning and shaping procedures, enduring within the anatomic intricacies and unreached areas of the canal1. Rapid development of nanotechnology in the field science and technology, is creating numerous biomedical applications like drug delivery, tissue regeneration, anti-microbial application2. Nano-dentistry implies to the application of nanomaterials for the diagnosis of oral ailment, treatment of the same with the aim of enhancing extensive oral health3.

Antibacterial nanoparticles have been pioneered at primitive levels with significant potential for eradication of oral biofilms. The efficacy of nanoparticles to eradicate microorganisms is ascribed to different mechanisms. First mechanism being attachment of nanoparticles to the targeted cell membrane of bacteria through electrostatic forces causing the alteration of membrane potential, depolarization leading to loss of membrane integrity. The second mechanism includes bacterial cell death by the production of free radicals like reactive-oxygen species it influences the bacterial cell endurance by protein function blockage, destruction of DNA this results in excess radical production. This leads to the bacterial cell death4.

It is anticipated that nanotechnology will improve healthcare with the development of novel methods for disease diagnosis and it's prevention5. Enhancement of antibacterial efficacy in endodontics is the potential of nanoparticle based strategies6. Thus, this poster reviews antibacterial nanoparticles in endodontics, as the promising future in development of better techniques to achieve efficient disinfection.

Closed surgical approach for palatally displaced maxillary permanent canine along with open flap debridement in chronic periodontitis patient- A case report

Amanpreet Kaur Saini, Shikha Tewari

Year:2020 | Month:Jan-June | Volume:9 | Number:1 | Pages No:1-2 | No. of Hits: 709


Commentary:

INTRODUCTION- Canine plays an important role in dentofacial esthetics, development of arch and functional occlusion1. Maxillary canines are the most commonly impacted teeth as they develop deep within the maxilla and have the longest path of eruption. Surgical exposure of impacted canine can be performed in three ways- gingivectomy, apically repositioning the raised flap overlying the impacted tooth and closed- eruption technique2.

CASE REPORT- A 25- year male, systemically healthy, nonsmoker patient with generalized chronic periodontitis was treated. Oral examination revealed gingival inflammation, bleeding on probing and a palatal bulge in the canine region. Maxillary canine was located palatally with its cusp tip adjacent to cervical one-third of root of central incisor and at 3mm distance from incisive foramen as observed on CBCT (cone beam computerized tomography) view.

Papilla preservation flap technique was used to raise full thickness mucoperiosteal flap. Meticulous debridement and root planning was carried out using Gracey curettes and scalers. Bone loss was seen in the anterior region. On the palatal side, for the exposure of impacted canine, piezo surgical tips no-US1L and R were used for the removal of some cortical bone, keeping in mind the position of incisive foramen. Orthodontic button and ligature wire were placed with the help of bonding agent. Flap was repositioned with interrupted suture.

DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION- Atraumatic surgical technique and orthodontic treatment permit the traction of impacted canines to the alveolar crest, thus facilitating a physiological eruption pattern.

Joining hands to nurture healthy smiles

Subhathira Rajasekaran, Sham S Bhat, Sundeep Hegde K, Vidya Bhat

Year:2020 | Month:Jan-June | Volume:9 | Number:1 | Pages No:1-2 | No. of Hits: 732


Commentary:

Early Childhood Caries (ECC) is a prevailing disease commonly seen in children younger than 5 years of age. There is a lack of vision on defining the problem, prevention and management strategies to be applied in the dental community1. Nurses working in the newborn nursery, ambulatory care clinics, private offices, public health, and community programs are in a distinct position to bring about a beneficial change in the recent epidemic status of ECC. These changes can be accomplished by providing comprehensive oral health education with routine anticipatory guidance for parents. Parents are provided with the fundamental instructions regarding the feeding practices, bathing, care of the umbilical cord, recognition of signs of illness in newborns by the nurses regularly. A model set to provide knowledge and awareness about oral health care to the parents is the newborn nursery2.

Nurses are in a notable position to positively reinforce the importance of oral health status to both the parents and the children. They provide assistance in acquiring access to prophylactic oral health care, specifically in low socio-economic populations3. Nurses who have the expertise of working in maternity and pediatric wards are in a favorable position to counsel the mothers expecting children on the child’s oral hygiene requirements on a regular basis. Therefore, they have a crucial role in recognizing at-risk mothers or children during oral screening ensuring referral to pediatric dentists for dental treatment4.

Despite having knowledge about the importance of oral health prevention by nurses, they were oblivious of the guidelines required professionally for incorporating oral health in pediatric practices. Collaboration with dental schools and community services would provide a broader idea regarding oral health preventive measures. When administrative supports and policies have been followed, inter- professional collaboration is possible between health care teams. This would bring forth a unique platform allowing the child’s oral health status to be monitored closely while providing a base for early interventions in the form of fluoride applications and early referrals to the dentist5. The pediatrician's involvement along with the nurses would hold more weight to the parents for their child's first appointment with a pediatric dentist as they already trust them. Therefore, a multidisciplinary approach involving the nurse, pediatrician and pediatric dentist would play a pivotal role in maintaining good oral hygiene of children.

    Year:2020 | Month:Jan-June | Volume:9 | Number:1 | Pages No:1-2 | No. of Hits: 758


    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    Introduction - Anomalies of tooth form present as a diagnostic dilemma in newly erupted permanent teeth. The uncertainty of pathology can lead to formulation of a wrong and aggressive treatment plan. Dens invaginatus is one such developmental anomaly which results due to invagination into the tooth crown surface before occurrence of calcification1, and is frequently misdiagnosed. The newer diagnostic aids such as CBCT can provide a correct diagnosis in such cases and help in formulating a minimally invasive treatment plan2. This report highlights successful and minimally invasive treatment provided utilizing 3D radiographic aid.

    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    It is not very often do we as experienced clinicians realize that no matter what our level of experience is, every child is completely unique and oftentimes, these children have immense potential to teach us something different everyday1.There is fierce dearth of available literature or knowledge per se amongst dental surgeons to render services to the children with Autism, neither is much effort taken for the same for the oral health services of children with Autism by the parents, Special Educators, Therapists. The basic reason could be due to the sensory and behavioral issues being prioritized and the lack of any sort of awareness in hygiene measures or diet counseling putting this utmost important domain of health in the backseat. This poster aims to illustrate few of the means by which complete oral health in these children can also be accomplished.

    Anila Krishna Saxena , Anil K Tomer , Artika Gupta

    Year:2020 | Month:Jan-June | Volume:9 | Number:1 | Pages No:1-2 | No. of Hits: 738


    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    Regenerative endodontics aims to restore vitality of the tooth by replacing pathological pulp with functional pulp tissue. It has been defined as “biologically based procedures designed to physiologically replace damaged tooth structures, including dentin and root structures, as well as cells of the pulp-dentin complex” in the Glossary of Endodontic Terms (2012)1. Regenerative procedures aim to repair pulp in an organized way and encompass many therapies that are continuously evolving in this field2. The triad of stem cells, growth factors and scaffolds form the fundamental basis for regeneration of pulp affected by trauma or infection3. Minimal canal instrumentation, antimicrobials and irrigants are used in conjunction with apically induced bleeding to form a blood clot that acts as a seal within the canal to promote healing4. Regeneration of tissues like resorbed root, damaged dentin and pulp like tissue i.e. pulp dentin complex are among the main objectives of regenerative endodontic procedures5. Root canal revascularization, pulp implantation, scaffold implantation, injectable scaffold delivery, postnatal stem cell therapy, gene therapy and 3D cell printing are the numerous approaches that come within the scope of regenerative endodontics1.

    Ayesha Niyaz , Zohabhasan Sayyad

    Year:2020 | Month:Jan-June | Volume:9 | Number:1 | Pages No:1-2 | No. of Hits: 882


    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a new dental imaging modality that generates 3-D images which provides us more complex and accurate imaging technique when compared to the usual analog and digital radiographs1. Forensic odontology is a part of forensic medicine where in there is intervention of the dental expertise in the medico-legal cases by age estimation in unknown human cadavers which evidently help in solving the issue. Primarily, it involves identification of missing person of a deceased individual through a number of methods like morphological, radiological, biochemical, histological1. Radiographs play a very important role in this field which can help age estimation of an individual through hard tissue and soft tissue of the tooth, which marks a significant step in forensic identification process2. Thus, age estimation has become of prime importance in the field of Forensic odontology. CBCT being a noninvasive alternative imaging technique that has advantage over conventional radiographic methods, which provides us information of tooth dimensions in all surfaces simultaneously, this minimizes the magnification and distortional errors. It is becoming increasingly popular source of imaging in the present day in the field of Forensic odontology as it provides an option of 3-D reconstruction, cranial measurements, in visualization of cervical vertebra morphology and also in investigating the ante mortem data. In this poster presentation we present the different methods of age estimation using CBCT.

    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    Robert Putnan was a political scientist who defined social capital “as features of social organisation such as trust, norms and networks that can improve the efficacy of society by facilitating coordinated actions”. Social capital is a community level determinant with its influence in economic growth and sustainable development1. Role of social capital on health is supported by growing evidence in literature. It is always concerned with increased social relations or networks which has a great influence on mental health, lower levels of mortality and morbidity2. Many oral diseases can be prevented if we are able to provide a supportive environment and accessibility for the people in the community. This in turn helps to attain optimal oral health3. There is an urgent need to prevent the occurrence of oral diseases by framing different public dental health approaches which will promote oral health in the community. This poster depicts a model showing the role of a public health dentist in utilizing this social capital for oral health promotion in a community. This shows the changing trends in work profile of a public health dentist to meet the demands and expectation of our profession.

    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    Saliva is a clear multi-constituent, slightly acidic complex biological fluid produced by the major and minor salivary glands. This oral fluid can detect diseases at early stages and does surveillance of general health and disease which has become an important tool in healthcare research and promotion1.A disease severity and its impact in a person’s life can be prevented when it’s diagnosed at the earlier stage. Such early diagnosis might also delay future complications. The advantages of salivary diagnostic tool are that it can be collected easily and non invasively without any discomfort to the patients as in case of invasive blood sample collection or urine collection which pose privacy issues. Salivary constituents might vary based on the salivary flow rate and the method in which they are collected. Salivary sample collection, storage and transport are inexpensive. Thus, it is a very cost-effective method as well as a easy to use screening method which only requires collection of smaller samples. Saliva can be easily stored and transported and has greater sensitivity similar to blood serum2. Salivary biomarkers are being used to develop technologies for screening of systemic conditions like metabolic disorders, autoimmune disease, viral infections, cancer, bacterial infections, and cardiovascular diseases3.

    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    Radiography in dentistry helps to visualize structures that are unseen with naked eye. Various advancements have been made in the field of radiography; one such development is Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)1. Introduction of CBCT in endodontics have made transition from 2-dimensional to a 3-dimensional approach in image acquisition. It helps clinician to view slices of data in volumetric plane2. It is used in evaluation and management of complex endodontic conditions like vertical root fracture, understand aberrant root and canal anatomy. It helps to determine horizontal root fractures, the degree and displacement related to luxation injuries. Bony defects can be demonstrated separately3. Presence of undiagnosed lesion and healing of periapical lesion can be determined better with CBCT as compared to conventional radiography4.

    Year:2020 | Month:Jan-June | Volume:9 | Number:1 | Pages No:1-2 | No. of Hits: 638


    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    Forensic scientists use multidisciplinary techniques for analysis of evidence to establish or exclude an association between the suspect and the crime scene. Raman spectroscopy is a versatile technique for analysis and characterization of a wide range of forensic samples resolving most of limitations of other spectroscopic techniques. It is a vibrational technique involving high energy photons based on the inelastic scattering of radiation in the visible or near-infrared region of the sample1. Recent forensic studies have shown the importance of this technique as a valuable tool for analysis and characterization of biological fluids, teeth and bones and distinguishing of narcotic drugs2,3. The biological fluid traces recovered from crime scenes are one of the most important evidence for forensic dentists. This technique is very effective for analysis of dried up samples and identifies an unknown substance to be blood, saliva etc. with high confidence4. It also plays an important role in forensic anthropology and toxicology. The recent advent of handheld portable Raman spectrometers equipped with infrared laser (1064 nm) has allowed the on-scene identification of evidence material even from a distance of ten meters. Different forensic disciplines including forensic odontology will greatly benefit from this technique.

    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is characterized by the cessation of air flow during sleep due to an obstruction in the nasopharyngeal/oropharyngeal region. Many episodes of apnea may take place within a span of minutes leading to arousal of the patient from his/her sleep in an attempt to increase the amount of air flow. Apart from inadequate hours of sleep, this also results in a deteriorated quality of sleep. Sleep apnea can be caused due to many factors and many treatment modalities have been employed to correct this disorder including mandibular advancement appliances1, polysomnographs, and surgical intervention. Best results, however, have been seen with the use of the mandibular advancement appliances. This poster highlights the role the orthodontist plays in the diagnosis and treatment planning of OSA patients.

    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    The era of endodontics has undergone various recent advances such as endodontic file systems, irrigation system and operating microscope. There are several materials and techniques to provide fluid tight seal during obturation1. Gutta-percha and root canal sealer are the most common material used; But it has several disadvantages such as lack of homogenecity, voids intrapment, thermoplasticised technique require special equipment for heating and injecting gutta-percha into the root canal2. Researchers failed to modify the use of gutta-percha because of sensitivity or the biocompatibility of the material and equipment cost3. For overcoming such problems advanced root canal obturating system called C Point system (known as SmartSeal) was introduced. SmartSeal is a obturating system based on polymer technology consist of two parts:4

    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    An optimal dental care requires, an appropriate patient to operator positioning, which in turn can be comprehended through the field of Ergonomics1. A failure to maintain a good patient to operator, could lead to the operator experiencing discomfort in their hands, back, and shoulders, which in turn could affect the treatment quality2. On the long term such discomfort could increase the risk of several musculoskeletal disorders3,4. Therefore, understanding the science of ergonomics is required to obtain comfortable working environment which improve the operator efficiency thereby enhancing overall treatment5.

    Optical coherence tomography in oral soft tissue lesions

    Anju Redhu

    Year:2020 | Month:Jan-June | Volume:9 | Number:1 | Pages No:1-2 | No. of Hits: 480


    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    More than 300,000 oral cancer patients are diagnosed yearly around the world. The exponential occurrence rates have been reported from Southeast Asian countries, Latin American countries, Europe, and the Caribbean and Pacific group of countries. Use of tobacco, excessive alcohol intake and habit of betel nut/ quid chewing remain the potential risk factors for the development of malignancy1. Majority of oral cancers tend to develop from pre-existing potentially malignant disorders (PMDs). Severely dysplastic lesions possess a malignant transformation rate of 20-35%, whereas, moderate dysplasia carries a risk of approximately 4-11%. Oral leukoplakia holds a significantly attributable role in this increasing tally of malignant transformations. Recent literature has reported this rate to be variable, depending on the type of leukoplakia (Homogeneous leukoplakia-1-7%, Verruciform type -4-15% and Erythroleukoplakia -18-47%)2. Mortality and morbidity associated with malignancies can be reduced, if diagnosed and effectively treated at an early stage. PMDs with such a high rate of malignant transformation also warrant the importance of diagnosis at the earliest stage2.

    Microscopes: Magnification to success

    Megna Bhatt, Anil K Tomer

    Year:2020 | Month:Jan-June | Volume:9 | Number:1 | Pages No:1-2 | No. of Hits: 444


    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    In endodontics, the use of magnifying devices has resulted in enhancement of the operator’s vision as well as work place efficiency in treating difficult anatomical variations1. Magnification has made procedures feasible which were previously considered impossible2. The need for better visualization in the field of endodontics has been an ongoing challenge. Magnification is widely used from diagnosis to micro-surgical procedures using dentiscope, loupes, endoscopes and dental operating microscope3. The four areas that dental operating microscope covers are magnification, illumination, accessories and documentation. Magnification used in dental surgeries for reflecting flap or sutures is 2X, osteotomy is 2.5X-6X, examination of root surface is 10X-12X, micro-inspection of C-shaped canals, isthmuses or micro-fractures is 16X-25X, for ultrasonic root end preparation is 9X-10X and for retro-filling is 10X4. The loupes provide magnification from 2X-6X. Before using orascope or endoscope, 2X loupes should be used for envision and conceiving the picture of the field mentally. Effect of those visual aids require steady head, constant practice and habit development5.

    Year:2020 | Month:Jan-June | Volume:9 | Number:1 | Pages No:1-2 | No. of Hits: 467


    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    Mandibular trauma has become the second most widespread facial fractures following nasal bone; symphysal/parasymphysal injuries constitute 15.6 to 29.3 % of mandibular trauma1. The treatment protocol includes open reduction & internal fixation of fracture site. Fixation by traditional S.S. Mini plate has high mortality and elevated rates of infection. Whereas excess implant volume might be as possible constraint of 3D plates. In instances where the fracture line was oblique and adjacent to the mental foramen, in which they were hard to adapt and the risks of tooth-root trauma and accidental mental nerve damage were higher, which makes 3D miniplates unacceptable2. The major downside of the 3-D plate design is the precise application to the underlying bone, interfering with the bone perfusion below the plate3. The 3D miniplate design is troublesome to adapt and challenging to use in cases of injuries involving the mental nerve. The 3D plate needs to be shaped in 3 dimensions, while the traditional plate has to be shaped only in 2 dimensions, thus, perhaps the 3D plate is far more difficult to adapt accurately than the conventional plate4. hence the new design of mini plate has been developed in an attempt to overcome limitations of previous fixation techniques and to acquire better retention as well as stability5. The tensile strength measurement of Trinity mini plate ,was 649 N whereas tensile strength measurement of conventional Champy’s S.S. mini plate were 565 N thus, the tensile strength of the trinity mini plate is 14 per cent higher than the conventional stainless steel mini plate system. The trinity mini plate system is therefore more rigid than the conventional stainless-steel mini plates.

    Year:2020 | Month:Jan-June | Volume:9 | Number:1 | Pages No:1-2 | No. of Hits: 447


    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    In daily clinical practice, dentist often come across a wide range of oral mucosal lesions which may develop into malignancy (oral cancer). Among all cancers worldwide, oral cancer is 11th most common cancer and it accounts for 30% of all cancers in India1,2. Oral cancer is mainly a disease which is localized to restricted region in oral cavity, which tends to infiltrate neighbouring bone and soft tissues and spreads to the regional lymph nodes in the neck3. At the time of diagnosis, it is uncommon to find distant metastasis. Prognosis of malignant lesions depends on stage it is detected and is fatal if not diagnosed and treated as early as possible4. Presently, early diagnosis and ample amount of treatment are the most successful ways of fighting oral cancer. This aim of fighting with the oral cancer can be improved by increasing the efficiency of diagnosis. Therefore, advanced approaches are evolving to accompany clinical inspection and to ease early diagnosis of carcinomas. Currently, gold standard for diagnosis of cancer and dysplasia are based on histopathology which works at molecular level5. There has been an increasing shift towards optical spectroscopy methods lately for the diagnosis of oral premalignant and malignant lesions and same is focused in the poster6. In recent times, optical spectroscopic approaches have also been explored for oral cancer diagnosis7. Optical spectroscopy involves the study of light-tissue interaction. This technology is based on the principle that different tissue has their own optical spectrum that gives the details about the histological and biochemical make-up of that tissue8. Diagnosis of any oral cancer by this technology is made at earliest, non-invasively and in situ.

    Rashmi Dalal, Ankit Srivastava, Anil Gupta, Shalini Garg, Sakshi Joshi, Shikha Dogra

    Year:2020 | Month:Jan-June | Volume:9 | Number:1 | Pages No:1-2 | No. of Hits: 479


    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    Background: Complementary and Alternative medicine (CAM) as the name indicates comprises of therapeutic modalities that are largely considered as ineffective against conventional medicine1. Ayurvedic medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture, naturopathy, herbal medicine, biofeedback, hypnosis etc. are the most common modalities of CAM1. These modalities have been in practice for centuries, and it has gained popularity even in the contemporary world. However, the scientific validity of such alternative approaches is often questioned.
    Aim: To assess evidences for various CAM modalities and their efficiency in resolving oral health related issues in pediatric population.
    Sources: A literature search for all the relevant papers on CAM was obtained from online scientific databases such as “PubMed”, “Google Scholar” and a narrative review was carried out.
    Content: Application of various CAM modalities in pediatric and preventive dentistry such as: role of herbal and ayurvedic medicaments in pulpotomy and pulpectomy2,3 procedures, Herbal mouthwashes and dentifrices3, acupressure and acupuncture in reducing fear and anxiety in children undergoing dental treatment2, hypnosis, music relaxation therapy, aromatherapy4 etc. have been highlighted in the poster.
    Implications: The available literature suggests that CAM has the potential to be acknowledged as part of primary dental care1,5,6. It may successfully contribute significantly in reducing burden of oral diseases in children with least side effects. Our research can pave a way for young researchers to explore the hidden potential of such natural alternatives1.

    Catalytic nanoparticles as endodontic disinfection :An emerging trend

    Apoorva R. Jagtap, Gayatri B. Aher, Meenal N. Gulve, Swapnil J. Kolhe

    Year:2020 | Month:Jan-June | Volume:9 | Number:1 | Pages No:1-2 | No. of Hits: 450


    ABSTRACT

    Commentary:
    Successful endodontic treatment is directly related to control of micro-organism which is the primary cause of dental infections. Use of mechanical measures for root canal preparation may not be always helpful in eliminating the bacteria from the intricate canal system. For the same purpose an alternative approach of antibacterial nanoparticles can be considered1. An extensive array of these antibacterial nanoparticles are derived from diverse materials like zinc oxide, iron oxide, silver oxide, chitosan2. Amongst them iron oxide nanoparticles have gained importance in disinfection of the canals as it has inherent peroxidase like property which activates hydrogen peroxidase (H2O2) to release free ions which aim to destroy the bacteria3. Initial binding of H2O2 to the iron oxide nanostructure takes place via iron oxide mediated nanocatalysis wherein the ferric or ferrous ions cause activation of H2O2 releasing free ions like OH- (hydroxyl radical) and O2-/HO2 (superoxide anion radical/hydroperoxyl radical) necessary for killing bacteria4. Thus it can be concluded that nanoparticles obtained from metals have potent antibacterial property which can be of prime importance in treating various endodontic infections5.
