INTRODUCTION Anesthetic efficacy of inferior alveolar nerve block decreases in patients with irreversible pulpitis. It was hypothesized that premedication with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs might improve the success rates in patients with inflamed pulps. METHODS Sixty-nine adult volunteers who were actively experiencing pain participated in this(More)
INTRODUCTION The inferior alveolar nerve block (IANB) has a poor success rate in patients with irreversible pulpitis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of ketorolac and dexamethasone infiltration along with standard IANB on the success rate. METHODS Ninety-four adult volunteers who were actively experiencing pain participated in this(More)
A case report of severe external inflammatory root resorption is presented. The patient reported with a complaint of increased tooth mobility after avulsion and replantation.

Dentinal hypersensitivity (DH) is a common clinical condition usually associated with exposed dentinal surfaces. It can affect patients of any age group and most commonly affects the canines and premolars of both the arches. This article concisely reviews the patho-physiology, mechanism and clinical management of the DH. Treatment of DH should start with an(More)
INTRODUCTION There is a decrease in the anesthetic efficacy of inferior alveolar nerve blocks in patients with irreversible pulpitis. It was hypothesized that the increasing the volume of anesthetic solution may improve the success rates of dental pulp anesthesia in patients with pulpal pain. METHODS Fifty-five adult volunteers, actively experiencing(More)
The reported efficiency of B.C.G. vaccine in prevention of primary childhood or sputum positive adult tuberculosis vary widely but it is believed to offer significant protection against hematogenous forms of tuberculosis. The present hospital-based, case control study was aimed at evaluation of impact of B.C.G. vaccination on one of the hematogenous forms(More)
