A case of giant hairy pigmented nevus of face – A case report

[Year:2020] [Month:September] [Volume:7 ] [Number:1] [Pages No:1-3]


ABSTRACT


The prophylactic excision of hairy nevus can be problematic due to the high esthetic nature of the affected area. Closure of the excisional defect by undermining the surrounding tissue followed by primary closure was questionable. A 20-year-old female patient reported to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Swargiya Dadasaheb Kalmegh Smruti Dental College and Hospital, Nagpur having hairy nevus in the left cheek region undergoing excisional biopsy utilizing contemporary cosmetic surgery approaches was selected. The patient had successful removal of hairy nevus and primary closure was achieved with good cosmetic result. The use of contemporary cosmetic surgical approach for the excisional biopsy of hairy nevus by primary closure as an option for tissue expansion provides adequate surgical access, a cosmetically acceptable result, and is well-tolerated by patients.

Injectable platelet-rich fibrin-“a quicker therapeutic aid” in the treatment of combined endo-perio lesion: A case report

[Year:2020] [Month:September] [Volume:7 ] [Number:1] [Pages No:1-4]


ABSTRACT


An endo-perio lesion has been one of the prevalent issues affiliated with the tooth. The cutaneous involvement of pulpal and inflammatory periodontal pathology can perplex the diagnosis and treatment planning. The present case report shows the synergic effect of endodontic, periodontal, and esthetic therapy. The treatment includes root canal therapy and open debridement followed by the placement of ""sticky bone"" graft and guided tissue regeneration membrane over the osseous defect site. After 6 months, a coronally advanced tunneling procedure with connective tissue graft placement was performed to improve esthetics. The patient was followed up for 1 year. Clinically, there was a reduction in probing pocket depth, increase in attached gingiva, and improvement in gingival biotype. Radiographically, there was a resolution of periapical radiolucency and a significant amount of bone fill was observed. Hence, the coactive effect of various regenerative materials with root canal sealing had significantly improved both clinical and radiographic features of the endo-perio lesion.

Guide flange prosthesis for the management of deviation following hemimandibulectomy: A case report

[Year:2020] [Month:September] [Volume:7 ] [Number:1] [Pages No:1-4]


ABSTRACT


The mandible is very important bone of human body but surgical resection of the mandible due to the presence of benign or malignant tumor causes of the mandibular deviation and loss of various functions. The clinician must wait for proper healing of the wound before giving any prosthesis. This case report presents a case of the removable type of guide flange prosthesis for a hemimandibulectomy and hemimaxillectomy patient. This prosthesis helped the patient in preventing deviation and improved mastication and enhanced the overall quality of life of the patient.
