Gardner syndrome is an autosomal dominant disease. It is characterized by a combination of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) of the intestine with extraintestinal changes as multiple osteomas and fibromas. Odontogenic Myxoma is a benign, aggressive intraosseous neoplasm. We report a rare case of a 14-year-old male patient with Gardner's syndrome and odontogenic myxoma, which involved the entire left half of the mandible, resulting in a gross facial deformity, within a span of one year.

INTRODUCTION: Glass fibre posts that are newer and have better properties are gaining more popularity than metal posts. However, there is no consensus about the optimal cementation depth of glass fibre posts. In our study, we have attempted to assess fracture resistance of roots restored with glass fibre posts cemented at different root depths. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Specimens were formed with peeso reamers and a special reamer adapted for the cementation of glass fiber posts at different depths...

OBJECTIVE: Canine impaction is a dental anomaly involving intraosseous displacement of the unerupted tooth. This situation is of significant importance causing orthodontic, surgical and interceptive problems. Trauma in the incisor area is a possible cause of the displacement of the tooth bud of the permanent canine resulting in the deviated eruption path. The aim of this article is to present two clinical cases with diagnosis of maxillary canine displacement and impaction in the incisor region after a traumatic injury during childhood, discussing treatment possibilities and outcomes achieved after orthodontic treatment...

OBJECTIVE: Patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) have a high risk of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) involvement. Early detection of osseous destruction of the TMJ that can be seen radiographically is vital to provide appropriate treatment before significant craniofacial deformities and problems with occlusion arise. The aim of study was to evaluate whether there is a correlation between the clinical signs and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) radiologic features of TMJ in patients with JIA...

Self-inflicted gunshot injuries to the head and neck area are challenging cases. Immediate and complex approach is required due to complexity of head and neck anatomy. The extent of injury largely depends on velocity of a rifle and penetrated tissues. Management of these type of patients consist of vital resuscitation, primary wound management, soft and hard tissue reconstruction and rehabilitation. Here we present two cases of self-inflicted gunshot injuries with low and high velocity rifles.
