OBJECTIVE: An altered sensation during endodontic treatment can occur due to the extrusion of endodontic materials. This study aims to discuss intentional replantation to address paresthesia resulting from an endodontic file penetrating the inferior alveolar nerve canal (IANC) and provide a protocol for managing nerve injuries in such incidents. CASE PRESENTATION: A 12-year-old girl developed paresthesia when an endodontic file separated and was inadvertently pushed through the apical foramen into IANC during root canal treatment of the mandibular left first molar...

Secretory carcinoma is a malignant salivary gland tumor, which typically presents as an indolent painless mass within the parotid gland. Involvement of minor gland is reported but less common. Secretory carcinoma was often misclassified as other salivary gland mimics and in particular, acinic cell carcinoma prior to 2010. It was first recognized by Skalova et al. as a molecularly distinct salivary gland tumor harboring the same fusion gene as well as histological and cytogenetic features seen in juvenile breast cancer...

OBJECTIVES: Tooth wear (TW), also referred to as tooth surface loss (TSL), occurs due to causes other than caries. This involves the loss of hard tissues, namely enamel, dentin and/or cementum. Types of TW/TSL are abrasion, abfraction, attrition and erosion. These multifactorial conditions can be caused things such as lifestyle, diet or even habits and may not be symptomatic. The focus of this article is to provide clinicians with detailed examples and explanations of the causes of tooth loss to aid in early diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Pre-eruptive intra-coronal radiolucency (PEIR) is a rare dental anomaly often incidentally detected during routine radiographic examinations. This condition manifests as a radiolucent lesion beneath the enamel-dentinal junction of unerupted teeth, particularly in lower molars, posing diagnostic and management challenges due to its asymptomatic nature. The treatment of PEIR depends on the extent of the lesion and the degree of pulp involvement. CASE SERIES: This case series reports on four patients with progressive pre-eruptive intra-coronal radiolucency...

OBJECTIVES: The frenum is a mucous membrane fold that attaches the lip and the cheek to the alveolar mucosa, the gingiva, and the underlying periosteum. Frenectomy is the surgical removal of the whole frenum, including the area connected to the bones. This study's purpose was to compare the healing period and postsurgical pain experienced by patients operated with diode and erbium:yttrium-aluminium-garnet (Er:YAG) lasers. METHODS: Twenty referred patients need to excision of the abnormal upper labial frenum were included in this study...

OBJECTIVE: This pilot study aimed to evaluate, for the first time, the changes in facial tissues following the placement of a single dental implant. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Patients were scanned with a 3D facial scanner (3dMD) before implant surgery, immediately after surgery (T1), at 7 days post-operatively (T2), and at the impression stage (T3). Acquired images were processed using 3dMDVultus software program and volume differences and linear depth measurements were calculated to determine the morphometric changes over time...

OBJECTIVE: Photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy is recommended by multiple international societies for managing oral mucositis (OM). These recommendations are based on extensive evidence. However, the search for an optimal PBM protocol continues. This mapping review focuses on a novel aspect of PBM therapy which is the immediate effect on pain levels associated with oral ulcerative conditions. DATA SOURCES: This literature review systematically compiles and evaluates the evidence about OM, alongside other oral ulcerative conditions, as the protocols that achieved pain relief for these oral conditions may have potential applicability to OM management...

BACKGROUND: Glossopharyngeal neuralgia due to vertebrobasilar dolichoectasia is a rare form of neuropathic pain and presents with diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 67-year-old man presented with severe burning pain in the left oral cavity, with no explanatory findings during dental and ENT evaluations. TMJ examination revealed tenderness, and panoramic radiographs showed a non-contributory periapical radiolucency. MRI/MRA revealed abnormally tortuous vertebral arteries compressing the glossopharyngeal nerves and the brainstem...

OBJECTIVES: Autoimmune activation by COVID-19 infection/vaccination has been postulated to be responsible for initiating or reactivating multiple types of oral mucosal immune disorders. These include oral lichen planus (OLP); oral pemphigoid, either bullous pemphigoid (BP) or mucous membrane pemphigoid (MMP) with oral involvement; pemphigus vulgaris (PV) with oral involvement; or Sjögren's disease. In addition, chronic conditions such as oral burning, xerostomia or changes in taste and/or smell have also been linked to COVID-19 infection/vaccination...
