A novel patented readymade space maintainer - Bibin appliance: A case report

[Year:2021] [Month:May] [Volume:11 ] [Number:1] [Pages No:1-3]


ABSTRACT


Space maintainers are used when there is premature loss of primary tooth to preserve the space. Conventional band and loop is still the preferred space maintainer for a unilateral space loss. The present education is still supporting this space maintainer even though it comes with a lot of disadvantages. In this case report, a 7-year-old child who had a grossly decayed lower right primary second molar was extracted, and the Bibin appliance (B-Appliance) was delivered to maintain the space. The present invention B-appliance is a novel space maintainer and prevents supra-eruption and it also overcomes all the disadvantages of band and loop and along with that provides additional advantages. It can be placed on the same day after extraction.

Dental treatment in a hospital setting for a patient with Apert syndrome: A case report

[Year:2021] [Month:May] [Volume:11 ] [Number:1] [Pages No:1-3]


ABSTRACT


Apert syndrome is a rare genetic syndrome resulting from missense mutations in the encoding fibroblast growth factor receptor 2. This case discusses the provision of routine dental care for a 22-year-old female with Apert syndrome. This patient presented with characteristic features of the syndrome including syndactyly, craniosynostosis, midface hypoplasia, and oral features such as dental crowding, impacted teeth, malocclusion, anterior open bite, and lateral swellings of the palatine processes. These characteristic oral and craniofacial findings provide unique challenges for dental practitioners. Proper management of this case required multidisciplinary care delivered in a hospital setting. Together, general dentists and oral surgeons performed extractions and routine prophylaxis without complication for this patient.

Intentional replantation of a tooth with separated instrument: A case report

[Year:2021] [Month:May] [Volume:11 ] [Number:1] [Pages No:1-3]


ABSTRACT


The term "intentional replantation" refers to the removal of a tooth and its replacement in its socket. When surgical endodontics or traditional root canal treatment cannot be possible, intentional replantation is used as a last resort. Periodontal cell viability, irritant removal, successful apical seal, and procedure performed under a microscope are all factors that determine the effectiveness of intentional replantation. In this article, a case of intentional reimplantation is defined and discussed as a treatment option for a mandibular left first molar that has a separated instrument periapically beyond the apical terminus.
