BACKGROUND Paediatric Endodontics is an important clinical procedure commonly used to manage pulpally involved or non-vital teeth in children. One of the important steps in root canal preparation in deciduous teeth is the removal of organic debris. AIM The aim of this study was to compare instrumentation time and cleaning efficacy of manual(More)
OBJECTIVE Early childhood caries is now affecting the children in dangerous proportions. There is a wide spread loss of the tooth material irrespective of the type of the carious lesion. Restoration of such lesions with a strong permanent bond between the dental tissues and the restorative dental materials would be a highly desirable requisite.(More)
AIM To assess the DMFT index of children with Special Health Care Needs (SHCN) in Navi Mumbai. To correlate the DMFT index with Streptococcus mutans count in the supragingival bacterial biofilm and with plaque pH. MATERIALS AND METHODS Dental examination of 158 patients aged 5-18 years was conducted to determine the DMFT/dmft index. Supragingival plaque(More)
BACKGROUND One of the unfavorable outcomes of endodontic treatment in primary molars is furcal perforation. During treatment, bacterial infection at the site of perforation should be prevented for better prognosis. AIM This study aims to compare sealing ability of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) Plus™ and Biodentine™ for the repair of furcal perforation(More)
Langer-Giedion syndrome is a very uncommon autosomal dominant genetic disorder caused by the deletion of chromosomal material. It is characterized by multiple bony exostosis, short stature, mental retardation, and typical facial features. The characteristic appearance of individuals includes sparse scalp hair, rounded nose, prominent philtral area and thin(More)
AIM To compare the accuracy and repeatability of three diagnostic systems; visual inspection, bitewing radiography, and CarieScan PRO for occlusal caries diagnosis in primary molars. MATERIALS AND METHODS 216 occlusal surfaces of primary molars examined in turn by two examiners using each of three diagnostic systems (visual inspection, bitewing(More)
AIM To evaluate microleakage of Nanoionomer (3M ESPE Ketac(™) N100 Light cured Nanoionomer Restorative) and Nanocomposite (3M ESPE Filtek(™) Z350 XT Universal Restorative) restorations, immersed in fruit drink, fresh fruit juice and soft drink. STUDY DESIGN Eighty caries free maxillary premolars extracted for orthodontic purpose were used for the study.(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to compare Biodentine and mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) for direct pulp capping in young permanent molars by clinical and radiographic evaluation in 7- to 9-year-old children. METHODS In 50 patients, 29 patients with bilateral asymptomatic first permanent molars with carious involvement were selected.(More)
Dentists often find foreign bodies in the primary dentition of children who habitually place objects in their mouths. The objects are frequently embedded in exposures that result from carious or traumatic lesions or from endodontic procedures that have been left open for drainage. Such bodies are often detected on routine radiographs and, less frequently,(More)
BACKGROUND Dental stem cells derived from tooth structures are adult stem cells that have received attention of researchers over the past decade. Dental stem cells can be used to regenerate dental tissues as well as non dental organs. These dental stem cells are readily accessible as compared to other sources of stem cells and can be obtained and stored for(More)
