Palatopharyngeal dysfunction may take place when palatopharyngeal valve is unable to perform its own closing due to a lack of tissue (palatopharyngeal insufficiency) or lack of proper movement (palatopharyngeal incompetence). Palatopharyngeal insufficiency induces nasal regurgitation of liquids, hypernasal speech, nasal escape, disarticulations and impaired(More)
The aim of this clinical report was to observe the effect of complete dentures on craniofacial growth and development of an ectodermal dysplasia (ED) patient. A complete anodontia patient diagnosed with ED was successfully rehabilitated with conventional complete dentures at the ages of 5, 8, and 10 years. Three sets of complete dentures were made with(More)
Sjogren's syndrome is a distinct clinical condition which includes xerostomia, ocular dryness, rheumatoid arthritis and other connective tissue disorders. Major oral problems reported by such patients include high caries rate, burning of oral mucosa, early tooth loss, increased tooth wear, poor tolerance for dentures and repeated failure of dental(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of the study was to assess the awareness and performance towards dental waste including mercury management policy and practices among the dental practitioners in North India. MATERIALS AND METHODS An epidemiologic survey was conducted among 200 private dental practitioners. The survey form was composed of 29 self-administered(More)
AIMS The aim of the study was to evaluate and compare the oral stereognostic ability and satisfaction for fixed prosthesis in human being. MATERIALS AND METHODS The present study was carried out on 40 subjects, the purpose being to investigate the relation of oral perception to diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Two types of cast metal crowns--one had(More)
Studies have reported that masticatory function and occlusal force are low in edentulous patients, which brings about a change in the density, thickness, and alignment of bony trabeculae. However, studies that have quantitatively measured the differential cortical and medullary bone densities of the mandibular condyle in vivo remain rare. This study(More)
Microstomia is a common occurrence in clinical practice that may hinder the conventional prosthetic treatment of edentulous patients. Oral augmentation exercises to increase the vertical opening and sectional or collapsible dentures have been described in the past, which have their own drawbacks and limitations. The present article highlights a new approach(More)
Unfavourable sequelae from mandibular surgeries include malocclusion and temporomandibular joint dysfunction. The management of the situation before these complications arise is largely based on experience. This report presents a case where mandibular deviation is decreased through an additional row of teeth in the maxillary removable partial denture, and(More)
BACKGROUND The craniofacial implants are used for retaining the prostheses although these are costly and often require complex laboratory procedures. The aim of this case report is to describe a case of successful rehabilitation of partial ear loss with long-term soft liner and mechanically retained by custom-made heat-cured acrylic attachment. CASE(More)
An experimental study on craniofacial development and jaw growth pattern of an ectodermal dysplasia patient was performed and was compared with normal individual. An ectodermal dysplasia patient with complete anodontia was prosthetically rehabilitated with complete dentures at age of 6 and 8 years. Two sets of complete dentures were made with(More)
