Vitamin D is crucial for a wide variety of organ systems; nevertheless, its deficiency is highly prevalent, present in 30-50% of the general population. Evidence has demonstrated that vitamin D deficiency may place subjects at risk for not only low mineral bone density/osteoporosis and osteopenia, but also infectious and chronic inflammatory diseases.(More)
Dental implants are being increasingly applied in the restoration of partial and completely edentulous patients. Often, in these patients, soft and hard tissue defects result from a variety of causes, such as, periodontal infection, trauma, and tooth loss. These create an anatomically less favourable foundation for ideal implant placement. For(More)
Dental implants placement can sometimes be limited due to physical conditions, wherein the horizontal space is limited by adjacent teeth and roots or situations in which there is narrow alveolar ridge, By using a narrow diameter implant (NDI), the need for bone augmentation can be avoided. In situations where there is limited horizontal space, a NDI may be(More)
UNLABELLED Aim & Objective: The receptor activator of NF-kappa B ligand (RANKL) and its decoy receptor, osteoprotegerin (OPG), are the important proteins implicated in osteoclastogenesis. This study aimed to identify & quantify RANKL positive cells in gingival tissues in healthy & diseased patients & the study looks for immunohistochemical evidence of the(More)
Dental implants are established alternatives for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are artificial tooth root, positioned in the jaw bone, in order to sustain the replacement tooth or bridge. Recent advance in dental implant technology has made it more convenient, efficient and affordable for patients. In the anterior maxilla, esthetic demands not(More)
BACKGROUND Various modalities of treatments are available for gingival disease, but there are adverse effects of these conventional compounds. This led to the search of natural products which are highly beneficial and biocompatible. Turmeric is one such novel product obtained from plants, known for its varied medicinal value. In dentistry, it plays a role(More)
Foreign bodies may be ingested, inserted or deposited in the oral cavity. Iatrogenic foreign bodies such as impression material, amalgam, broken instruments, needles etc., are commonly encountered. These foreign bodies are generally symptomatic and show signs of inflammation pain and purulent discharge. An unusual case of asymptomatic traumatic foreign body(More)
Nanomedicine" is growing field which will revolutionize how dentists and physicians diagnose and treat disease and injury."Nanotechnology" in the broader and more inclusive definition is referred as "molecular nannotechnology" or "molecular manufacturing". In the world of nanoscience, man goes more nearer to the creator in his understanding of nature.(More)
Peri-Implantitis is defined as an inflammatory reaction with the loss of the supporting bone in the tissues which surround a functioning implant. The peri-implantitis lesions are often asymptomatic and they are usually detected during the routine recall appointments. Careful probing around the teeth and the implants should be done routinely along with the(More)
Gingival fibromatosis is characterized by gingival tissue overgrowth of a firm and fibrotic nature. The growth is slow and progressive and is drug-induced, idiopathic, or hereditary in etiology. It occurs isolated or frequently as a component of various syndromes. Our patient presented with the complaint of gingival enlargement associated with progressive(More)
