Intraoral dermoid and epidermoid cysts are rare and account for less than 0.01% of all the cysts in the oral cavity. A large majority of the same arise in the floor of the mouth and infrequently in other sites. These cysts often remain asymptomatic for years until they reach a size that interferes with mastication, speech and rarely, breathing. However,(More)
BACKGROUND The anatomic shape of maxillary premolars show a tendency towards separation of their cusps during mastication after endodontic treatment. Preservation of the marginal ridge of endodontically treated and restored premolars can act as a strengthening factor and improve the fracture resistance. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effect of varying(More)
BACKGROUND Mycotic infection of the paranasal sinuses and Maxilla are on the rise globally. Since 1968 the number of reported cases has increased three fold of all the fungal infections. Aspergillosis is one of the most rapidly progressing and lethal form of fungal infection. Among all fungal infections, Aspergillosis is the commonest fungal infection in(More)
Complete management of extraconal ocular tumors may require the joint efforts of a maxillofacial surgeon to provide access and an ophthalmic surgeon to completely excise the lesion. Pleomorphic adenoma is the most common benign tumor of the lacrimal glands, representing around 12% of the lacrimal fossa lesions. They may however undergo malignant changes.(More)
BACKGROUND The anterior lingual salivary glands (glands of Blandin-Nuhn) are mixed mucous and serous glands that are embedded within the musculature of anterior tongue ventrum. AIM The present study was designed to describe the clinical and histopathological features. MATERIAL AND METHODS We investigated the clinical and histopathologic features of 30(More)
BACKGROUND Gingival retraction methods are used in dentistry for impressions of subgingival crown margins, such as, mechanical, chemical, chemicomechanical, and surgical. These methods may injure the gingival sulcular epithelium. Hence, the present study is carried out to evaluate the effect of different retraction materials, such as, Expasyl, Magic Foam(More)
Multiple supernumerary teeth are very rare, accounting for less than 1% of cases. They are commonly associated with syndromes like Gardner's syndrome and cleidocranial dysostosis and cleft lip and palate. Non-syndromic multiple supernumerary teeth have a predilection to occur in the mandibular premolar region. Orthokeratinized odontogenic cyst (OOC) is a(More)
Odontomas are a heterogeneous group of jaw bone lesions, classified as odontogenic tumors which usually include well-diversified dental tissues. Odontomas are the most common type of odontogenic tumors and generally they are asymptomatic. Two types of odontomas are described: compound and complex based on either the appearance of well-organized tooth-like(More)
Benign fibrous histiocytoma (BFH) is a mesenchymal tumor which commonly affects the skin of extremities. Histologically, BFH of soft tissues and bone shows similar features, but BFH of the bone is rare with less than 100 cases reported worldwide and usually it involves tibia, femur, and pelvic bone. As far as the oral cavity is concerned, majority of the(More)
Osteosarcomas are malignant neoplasms of the bone which commonly affect the long bones. The involvement of the jaws are rarely noticed. These neoplasms often shows a typical clinical behaviour as well as varied radiological appearances. Similarly, their histological growth pattern can be quite diverse. Confirmation of the final diagnosis of an osteosarcoma(More)
