A potential role for sex hormone receptor antagonists in treatment of malignant salivary gland tumours, as compared to breast cancer: A review of literature
Publication date: August 2013 Source:Tanta Dental Journal, Volume 10, Issue 2 Author(s): T.A. Omar , F. ElDidi , W.M. Nawar Malignant salivary gland tumours (MSGTs) account for less than 5% of all cancers of the head and neck. However, their treatment represents a challenge to oral and maxillofacial specialists. Surgical resection followed by radiation therapy represents the primary treatment of localized MSGTs. Since breast and salivary glands share similar morphologic features; similarities in the pathological processes are also expected. Adjuvant hormonal therapy is recommended for breast tumours containing hormone re...

Subjective image quality comparison between two digital dental radiographic systems and conventional dental film
Conclusion Conventional film yielded superior image quality that was statistically significant in almost all aspects of comparison. Conventional film was followed in image quality by DD, and SD provided the lowest quality images. Conventional film is still considered the gold standard to diagnose diseases affecting the jawbone. Recommendations Improved software and hardware for digital imaging systems are now available and these improvements may now yield images that are comparable in quality to conventional film. However, we recommend that studies still use more observers and other statistical methods to produce ideal re...

Intraoral management of displaced root into submandibular space under local anaesthesia –A case report and review of literature
Publication date: October 2014 Source:The Saudi Dental Journal, Volume 26, Issue 4 Author(s): Satnam Singh Jolly , Vidya Rattan , Sachin Kumar Rai Accidental displacement of an impacted third molar, either a root fragment, crown, or the entire tooth, is a rare complication that occurs during exodontia. The most common sites of dislodgment of an impacted mandibular third molar fragment are the sublingual, submandibular, and pterygomandibular spaces. Removal of a displaced root tip from these spaces may be complex due to poor visualization and limited access. A thorough evaluation of all significant risk factors must be pe...

Knowledge, attitudes, and experience of dentists living in Saudi Arabia toward child abuse and neglect
Conclusions Based on the results of this survey, it appears that the level of knowledge among the respondents regarding the forms and indicators of CAN is good. However, a large proportion of respondents did not take action regarding suspected cases of CAN in their practice over the past five years. Therefore, additional resources and training are needed to support the identification and management of cases of child maltreatment by dental practitioners. (Source: The Saudi Dental Journal)

Attitude and awareness of dentist towards resin bonded bridges in Saudi Arabia
Conclusion In comparison to SPs, GDPs reported greater disagreement with current standards for RBB success factors. Moreover, 60% of SPs and 71% of GDPs used RBBs for less than 10% of their prosthodontic cases. Therefore, continuing education opportunities are needed for practicing dentists, and undergraduate students need to receive greater exposure to the clinical application of RBBs.

The effect of laterally positioned flap-revised technique and 24% ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid root conditioning on root coverage: A case report
This article highlights the use of the laterally positioned pedicle flap-revised technique (LPFRT) as a modification of the LPF technique, along with 24% EDTA gel as a root surface biomodification agent, in the management of localized gingival recession defects. Clinical examination revealed a Miller class II recession defect on the buccal aspect of the lower right central incisor, as well as the presence of aberrant frenum pull adjacent to the recession defect. The LPFRT, together with 24% EDTA gel, was speculated to cover the gingival recession defect. The frenectomy, along with periosteal fenestration, was planned simul...

Low levels of caries in aggressive periodontitis: A literature review
This article is a traditional literature review on caries levels in aggressive periodontitis. Aggressive periodontitis generally affects systemically healthy individuals aged <30years (older individuals can also be affected) and is characterized by a young age of onset, rapid rate of disease progression, and familial aggregation of cases. Dental caries is caused by the dissolution of enamel by acid-producing bacteria present in the plaque biofilm, especially when the biofilm reaches critical mass due to improper oral hygiene. The association between caries level and aggressive periodontitis has long been debated. In...
