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)
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. The case was treated with full root canal obturation with mineral trioxide aggregate. A 48 month follow up review showed arrest of root resorption with satisfactory clinical results.(More)
This case report presents the endodontic management of a maxillary second molar with clinical and radiographic presentation of 2 palatal canals. The canal morphology was confirmed with the aid of spiral computerized tomography, which revealed a C-shaped canal configuration of palatal canal with 2 separate apical foramens. The article presents the unusual(More)
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)
OBJECTIVE Conventional inferior alveolar nerve block (IANB) has a poor success rate in inflamed pulps. Three alternative techniques of providing anesthesia to mandibular molars were evaluated and compared with conventional IANB. STUDY DESIGN Ninety-seven adult volunteer subjects, actively experiencing pain, participated in this prospective, randomized,(More)
Giardia has been frequently implicated as a causative agent for acute as well as chronic diarrheal diseases in children. The present study was aimed at exploring the determinants of manifestations of Giardiasis in childhood, in relation to various host and parasite related factors. A total of 200 children with acute (100), chronic (50) or without (50)(More)
A model district action plan for control of Visceral Leishmaniasis a serious public health problem in north-east Bihar was developed in late 1989 and implemented in 1992 in district Vaishali. A two years implementation resulted in decline in cases and deaths due to Visceral Leishmaniasis to the extent of 65.32% and 46.51% respectively in 1993 as compared to(More)
INTRODUCTION The success rate of inferior alveolar nerve block (IANB) decreases in patients with irreversible pulpitis. It was hypothesized that supplemental infiltration of lidocaine and articaine may improve the success rates. METHODS Eighty-four adult volunteers, actively experiencing pain, participated in this prospective, randomized, double-blinded(More)
This case report presents the endodontic management of a maxillary first molar with 2 palatal canals with separate orifices and apical foramen. The diagnosis was confirmed with the help of spiral computed tomography. This article discusses the variations in the canal morphology and the use of latest adjuncts in successfully diagnosing and negotiating them.
