Ectopic Molar in The Condylar Region: An Unusual Presentation

Impacted third molars are very common condition which we encounter in our daily practice. Ectopic teeth are those which are impacted in unusual positions or have been displaced from their normal anatomic locations. Ectopic mandibular third molars in the condylar region are rare and under reported. Most of the cases are seen in female patients with common signs and symptoms of pain, discomfort and swelling in the mandibular region or in the preauricular region with temperomandibular joint pain and discomfort. Here we report an asymptomatic case of ectopic third molar in the condylar region and follow up of the case with Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) imaging Keywords: Ectopic molar, Condylar region, impacted third molar, CBCT

Oral Bullous Lichen Planus; An Unusual Variant: Case Report and Review

Lichen planus is a chronic inflammatory mucocutaneous disorder that affects both skin and oral mucosa. The exact cause of oral lichen planus is unknown. It may or may not be associated with skin lesions. Oral mucosa exhibits a variety of clinical patterns, including reticular, plaque, erosive, bullous, and atrophic, with bullous lichen planus being a rare entity. We present a unique case of bullous lichen planus in a 69-year-old female patient with no skin manifestations, as well as a review of literature on bullous lichen planus. Keywords: Bullous lichen planus, Burning sensation, Mucocutaneous

A Rare Case of Osteolipoma Presenting as a Mobile Swelling on The Buccal Sulcus

Osteolipoma is an extremely rare histologic variant of lipoma that contains mature lamellar bone within the tumor and is independent of bone tissue. It is most commonly seen in buccal mucosa, floor of the mouth, tongue, palate, and parapharyngeal spaces of the oropharyngeal region. We present a case of 72 yr old female patient with a complaint of intraoral swelling in left lower buccal sulcus. The swelling was mobile and firm to hard in consistency. Excision specimen showed circumscribed mass of mature adipose tissue with metaplastic lamellated bone formation. The lesion was diagnosed as osteolipoma. The pathogenesis and the differential diagnosis are discussed with this case presentation. Keywords: - Lipoma, Osteolipoma, Buccal sulcus

Obturation of Primary Mandibular Second Molar without Permanent Successor using BiodentineTM: a Case Report

The success of pulpectomy treatment depends on removal of infected pulp and filling it with a biocompatible material. In order to achieve it, the clinicians should understand the morphology of the individual root canal and atypical root canal configuration. The purpose of this article was to describe a case of primary mandibular second molar with missing successor tooth. BiodentineTM a new dentine substitute was used as an obturating material for retained maxillary second molar. After 24 months follow up, the success of BiodentineTM for management of primary tooth with chronic pulpitis and missing successor was evaluated and reported.

Treatment of a Skeletal Class III Case with Conventional Orthognathic Surgical Approach

In skeletal Class III cases, it may be difficult to obtain an excellent occlusal outcome only with orthodontic treatment and to maintain a stable post treatment occlusion. There are three main treatment options for correction of skeletal Class III malocclusion: growth modification, dentoalveolar compensation and orthognathic surgery. In most cases, surgical treatment of Class III malocclusion includes mandibular setback, maxillary advancement or a combination of both. The following is a case report of an ongoing treatment of Skeletal Class III malocclusion due to a prognathic mandible in a 17 year old female patient. The treatment objective was to achieve a more esthetically harmonious facial profile by correcting the skeletal Class III jaw base. The treatment plan included correction of prognathic mandible by surgical line of treatment with conventional orthognathic approach (Bilateral sagittal split osteotomy).

Bilateral Sagittal Split Osteotomy: a Case Report

Class III skeletal malocclusion with isolated mandibular prognathism is common among kerala population. They may cause both function and esthetic compromise adversely affecting the quality of life of an young individual. Class III skeletal deformity show a familial inheritance pattern. Isolated mandibular prognathism can be treated with bilateral sagittal split osteomy and mandibular setback. Along with orthodontic treatment, this young adults can be given a new face improving their social well being without compromising the function. Here we present a case report of a 22 years old male with isolated mandibular prognathism and class III malocclusion treated with bilateral sagittal split osteotomy and mandbilar setback. Keywords: bilateral sagittal split osteotomy; class III malocclusion, Mandibular prognathism

Sinusoidal haemangioma of the Tongue: Case report and review of literature

Oral haemangiomas are benign vascular tumors that can be classified as cavernous haemangioma and capillary haemangioma. Sinusoidal Haemangioma is a rare variant of cavernous haemangioma and is extremely infrequent in oral region. It represents only 1% of all haemangiomas and occurrence in the intramuscular location is unusual. Here we report the case of 5 year old female patient with swelling on the left dorsal surface of the tongue which was diagnosed histo-pathologically as sinusoidal haemangioma. Even though sinusoidal haemangioma has distinctive histopathological characteristics, many at a time these lesions are misdiagnosed as cavernous haemangioma.

Correction of Class II Malocclusion Using Fixed Functional Appliance For Adolescent Patients – A Case Report

For an efficient and effective treatment of skeletal Class II malocclusion is by interceptive approach during the pubertal growth stage. When considering early Class II therapy psychosocial issues and a greater risk of dental trauma are certain factors that should be addressed. This case report is on a patient who underwent orthodontic treatment due to aesthetic discomfort with the incisors protrusion. As the patient was in the circumpubertal stage, it was decided to try a different approach of treatment. This case report is on Herbst appliance and fixed multibrackets therapy during the circumpubertal stage, resulting in an adequate outcome. Key words: Skeletal Class II malocclusion, Herbst appliance
