Association of tissue eosinophilia with oral squamous cell carcinoma has shown variable results ranging from favourable to unfavourable or even having no influence on prognosis. Also, very few studies have been done to know the role of eosinophils in premalignancy. So the present study investigated role of eosinophilic infiltration in oral precancer and(More)
Osteomas are benign, slow-growing osteogenic tumours rarely occurring in the craniofacial bones. Osteomas are characterised by the proliferation of compact and/or cancellous bone. It can be of a central, peripheral, or extra skeletal type. The peripheral type arises from the periosteum and is rarely seen in the mandible. The lingual surface and lower border(More)
BACKGROUND In India smokeless tobacco users account for 25.9% of total tobacco use, Gutkha being the most common form. This study evaluated the association between serum lipid profile and Gutkha use as an early diagnostic and/or prognostic indicator for oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF) and oral cancer (Oral Ca) in non-smokers and non-alcohol consumers.

BACKGROUND Orthodontic therapy has oral ecological changes causing increased numbers of mutans streptococci in saliva and plaque. The purpose of this study was to estimate counts and colonization pattern of Streptococcus mutans after application of fixed orthodontic appliances. MATERIALS AND METHODS Plaque samples of randomly selected sixty patients were(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence and counts of Streptococcus mutans and Candida species in orthodontic fixed appliance therapy patients and comparison of the efficiency of manual and electronic toothbrushes on minimizing plaque by reducing S. mutans and Candida species in above-mentioned patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was carried out on(More)
Odontogenic anomalies of teeth can be encountered frequently in dental practice. Fusion and gemination are developmental anomalies leading to eruption of joined elements as double teeth. These anomalies pose a challenge even to the most experienced clinician in treating these teeth. This article highlights the importance of clinical and radiographic(More)
CONTEXT Extracted human teeth are routinely used in dentistry to learn technical and preclinical skills. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has adopted guidelines for infection control of extracted teeth used for research and teaching, requiring that teeth be sterilized before use. Many of the proposed disinfection methods starting from use of(More)
The intra-operative histological assessment of fresh tissue can provide valuable diagnostic information and guide surgical management. Artifacts in histopathology, could create serious errors and cause misdiagnosis. In some cases, the degree of artifactural damage is so large that may involve the entire specimen, rendering it suboptimal or useless for(More)
Dental antemortem/postmortem comparison by odontologists continues to be the major scientific method for identification in disasters throughout the world. Dental evidences are one of the most widely used tools in forensic identifications having some obvious advantages. Dental implants for prosthetic rehabilitation with fixed crown or mobile partial/total(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Myofibroblasts are one of the important components of the tumor microenvironment which could possibly play an important role in tumor progression. The purpose of this study was to compare the presence of α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA) and CD34 positive fibroblasts in nonmetastatic and metastatic oral squamous cell carcinoma and to(More)
