PURPOSE: Alcohol screening and a brief intervention (SBI) can be effective in changing harmful drinking behaviour and reducing the chance of future alcohol-related traumas. However, there is no standardised method in its application. This study aims to deliver a novel method of SBI to patients with alcohol-related facial fractures and to assess changes in their alcohol intake and attitudes to drinking following this intervention. METHODS: Twenty consecutive patients at two Victorian Hospitals were consented to undergo a novel SBI program...

INTRODUCTION: Fibrous dysplasia (FD) and aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) are uncommon non-neoplastic intraosseous lesions, and the occurrence of concomitant FD and ABC is extremely rare. CASE REPORT: An 11-year-old boy presented with gradual progressive enlargement of his right zygomatic bone over 4 years prior to presentation. Computed tomography revealed a lesion with a central bony area showing a ground-glass appearance surrounded by a well-defined expansile lesion with internal septations...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between intraorbital volume change caused by orbital fracture and globe malposition (GMP) in blow-out fracture patients undergoing surgery and to clarify the significance of different radiologically detected predictors associated with GMP. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 6-month prospective follow-up study of unilateral isolated orbital fractures was designed and implemented. The main outcome variable was GMP (present or absent); the secondary outcome was orientation of GMP (horizontal or vertical)...

PURPOSE: To assess different types of dental injuries associated with facial bone fractures. METHOD: One hundred dentate patients were selected randomly of all age and gender who had maxillofacial trauma only and having dental injury in association with facial bones fractures were included. They were thoroughly examined for injury/fracture to facial region as well as for dental injuries (teeth). Tooth injuries were noted according to Ellis classification. The data was collected, compiled, and put to statistical analysis...

PURPOSE: Dry socket (DS) is one the most common and symptomatic post-extraction complications; however, no consensus on its treatment has been reached. This study aimed to develop a novel dressing material for DS containing the phenolic agent guaiacol and evaluate its biological properties. METHODS: An inclusion complex of guaiacol and β-cyclodextrin (Gu/βcd) was prepared by freeze-drying. Its antibacterial activity over six oral bacteria was analyzed using the microdilution method, and its cytotoxicity in osteoblasts was assessed with the MTT assay...

BACKGROUND: Sialolithiasis is the most common disease of the salivary glands. Sialolithiasis usually develops in the major salivary glands, and rarely in the minor salivary glands, with only 2% of all cases of sialolithiasis occurring in the minor salivary glands and sublingual glands. Sialoliths in the minor salivary glands result in few or no clinical symptoms and are seldom identified on imaging. CASE PRESENTATION: We report herein our experience with a case of minor salivary gland sialolithiasis in a 67-year-old woman...

PURPOSE: The objective of this systematic review was to assess the three-dimensional changes in bone tissue after immediate installation of a single implant in a fresh extraction socket in the anterior maxilla. METHODS: After defining a strategy, an electronic search was carried out using the databases PubMed, Embase, LILACS, Web of Science, Cochrane, and Scopus. In addition, the gray literature was also researched using Google Scholar and ProQuest. Two reviewers independently screened for eligible studies, assessed the methodological quality, and extracted the data...

INTRODUCTION: To quantify the rate of tooth movement in two corticotomy protocols in an experimental model in rats through macroscopic and radiographic analysis. METHODS: The animals were divided into three groups: orthodontic movement (CO), orthodontic movement plus corticotomy surgery (G2), and orthodontic movement and corticotomy surgery with decorticalization (G3).The euthanasia occurred in 7 and 14 days. The data were statistically analyzed (p < 0.05)...

PURPOSE: An extremely rare case of divergent differentiation of a cutaneous angiosarcoma to a malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) is presented. METHODS: A 62-year-old male patient presented with an angiosarcoma of the left buccal region, which was excised with wide surgical margins. Four months after the operation, the tumor recurred locally as a MPNST. The recurrent tumor was treated with surgical excision followed by postoperative radiotherapy. Four years later, the patient presented with solitary lung metastasis...

BACKGROUND: Russell-Silver syndrome (RSS) is characterized by intrauterine growth retardation, short stature without postnatal catch-up growth, and an inverted triangular face with relative macrocephaly. There have been few case reports of RSS with cleft palate, in which perioperative problems such as difficult intubation due to trismus and impossibility to wear a mouth gag due to growth failure of the mandible were described. The case of a female RSS patient with cleft palate who underwent palatoplasty is reported...

PURPOSE: This study was conducted in order to determine whether marsupialization before definitive enucleation of nonsyndromic odontogenic keratocysts (OKCs) is capable of decreasing the recurrence rate more effectively than just enucleation. METHODS: We searched MEDLINE, Web of Science, Scopus, and Cochrane Library, until August 5th of 2017 for original studies reporting on the treatment of OKCs with and without previous marsupialization and the related recurrence rate...

PURPOSE: Augmentation of the maxillary sinus floor with bone grafting is commonly used for successful treatment of edentulous posterior maxilla with dental implants, and it is essential to maintain good bone volume and quality for long-term success of dental implants. The aim of this experimental study was to investigate the local and systemic effects of boric acid on new bone formation after maxillary sinus floor augmentation (MSFA). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-four male, New Zealand rabbits were randomly divided into three groups with eight rabbits each, and bilateral MSFA was performed in each animal...

OBJECTIVES: Articular involvement in familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) ranges between 40 and 70% of the patients. Involvement of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) in FMF is very rare, and only a few cases have been reported in the literature. There are no specific guidelines for treatment. We hereby present a new treatment for TMJ inflammation in FMF. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A literature search was performed using PubMed according to the following criteria: key terms included in the search were FMF arthritis, TMJ involvement in FMF patients, and arthroscopy in FMF patients...

PURPOSE: Treatment of mandibular angle fractures using one or two osteosynthesis plates is still a controversial topic. Fracture, treatment, and patient-dependent influencing factors could affect the overall outcome. In the present retrospective study, complication rates of mandibular angle fractures treated by open reduction were assessed according to type of treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed retrospective medical records using the search terms "mandibular angle fracture...
