A small number of medicaments are used in oral and maxillofacial surgery to dress wounds, relieve pain, prevent infection and promote healing. While these materials are routinely used, their constituents, uses and effects on oral tissues are rarely discussed. This literature review provides an overview of the constituents, uses and effects of the common materials--oxidised regenerated cellulose, Whitehead's varnish, Carnoy's solution, bismuth iodoform paraffin paste (BIPP), zinc oxide eugenol…

History of Periodontal Dressing
The aim of this review article is to have a thorough knowledge about different types of periodontal dressings. Periodontal surgeries cause tissue injury, triggering hemorrhage & leading to blood
Wound Dressing in the Oral Cavity
TLDR
The oral cavity is composed of several types of tissues, varying in their characteristics, and the various procedures carried out in the oral cavity call for varied management to avoid lost function, infection, and pain.
Dressings in Oral and Maxillofacial Region- A Review
TLDR
This articles aims at emphasizing on the various dressings that can be used in the management of soft tissue injuries of the Oral and Maxillofacial region.
Alvogyl Dental Dressing: A Potential Cause of Complicated Postextraction Non-healing Sockets: A Clinicopathologic Study of 7 Cases
TLDR
Investigation of the occurrence and types of complications in postextraction nonhealing sockets after application of Alvogyl found three cases showed foreign body giant cell reactions with variably shaped membranous fibrous components that were initially confused as fungal hyphae or parasitic ova.
Biomedical Materials in Dentistry
TLDR
This chapter reviews main four groups of biomaterials used in dentistry, including (1) metallic biomedicals, such as titanium, dental amalgam, and alloys for metallic restorations; (2) polymeric and hydrogel biommaterials, suchAs bonding and luting agents, prosthetic polymers and resins, endodontic obturation materials, periodontal dressings, and sutures.
Be Aware of a Potential Pitfall in Oral and Dental Specimens: Alvogyl Fibers
Alvogyl dressing is used to help control hemostasis, foster healing, and prevent complications after certain oral procedures. It is a paste composed of different antiseptic and analgesic substances,
Effect of periodontal dressing on non-surgical periodontal treatment outcomes: a systematic review.
TLDR
Placement of periodontal dressing right after non-surgical mechanical therapy can be beneficial in improving overall short-term clinical outcomes, although more controlled studies are still needed to validate this finding.
Radicular cyst in mixed dentition
TLDR
This case report presents an additional case of a radicular cyst associated with a deciduous mandibular molar along with a bifid rib.
The effects of different durations of zinc oxide–Turmeric dressing application on wound toward neovascularization and expression of macrophage marker antibody and Cyclooxygenase-2: An In vivo study
TLDR
The application of zinc oxide–turmeric wound dressing for 5 and 7 days could increase both neovascularization and MAC387 expression and also decrease COX-2 expression on the observation day in day 7, suggesting the optimal application duration is 5 days.

Case Report: Late Complication of a Dry Socket Treatment
TLDR
A case of an intra-alveolar dressing (zinc-oxide eugenol paste) that mimicked a trigeminal neuralgia for 3 years and caused a right maxillary chronic osteomyelitis and foreign body reaction in a zone corresponding to the alveolus of the maxillary first molar is presented.
Adverse reactions associated with the use of eugenol in dentistry
TLDR
Two cases of adverse local reaction to eugenol are reported, contained within a temporary restorative material and a temporary cementation material respectively, which illustrate these problems.
Antibacterial properties of periodontal dressings.

TLDR
An investigation was undertaken into the antibacterial properties of certain proprietary periodontal dressings and a zinc oxide/eugenol material, and it was concluded that this material is successful because of its physical properties and not its antibacterial ones.

A comparison of packing materials used in nasal surgery.
TLDR
On removal the Telfa and paraffin gauze were associated with less discomfort and less bleeding than BIPP or Merocel (p < 0.05).
Whitehead's varnish and Jelonet--a better dressing for skin graft donor sites than Jelonet alone.
TLDR
Two methods of skin autograft donor site management were evaluated in 40 patients in a prospective randomised double-blind clinical trial and larger donor sites treated with Jelonet and Whitehead's varnish healed more quickly than those treated with the standard dressing alone.
