Primary intraosseous adenoid cystic carcinoma (PIACC) of the jaw is rare. To our knowledge, only 51 cases have been reported in the English literature. We present a rare case of PIACC arising in the mandible with multiple bone metastases and review the previous articles. A 70-year-old woman presented with paresthesia of the right chin and lower gingiva for 4 months. Radiography revealed an irregular radiolucent region on the right side of the ramus, infiltrating to the mandibular canal. Biopsy revealed a pathological diagnosis of adenoid cystic carcinoma...

Impaction of teeth affects patients' esthetics, speech, and masticatory efficiency. In addition, the transposition of teeth makes a case difficult to manage. This case report describes a case of a 14-year-old boy with the impaction of the maxillary right central incisor and canine along with the transposition of the right canine and lateral incisor. The impacted teeth were surgically exposed and guided into the arch using orthodontic traction. Likewise, the transposition was corrected orthodontically by moving the teeth to their desired position without any detrimental effect on the adjacent teeth...

Pulsatile and profuse hemorrhage occurred in the lateral window technique for implant placement. The surgery was performed in the dental clinic under local anesthesia. The posterior superior alveolar artery was suspected to be the main feeder. Ordinary methods for hemostasis, such as vasoconstrictor-soaked gauze compression, electrocautery hemostasis, absorbable hemostat packing, and bone wax application, were tried. However, strong pulsatile bleeding could not be controlled at all. Complete hemostasis was hardly expected...

This study presents a case report of an inflammatory dentigerous cyst of tooth #35, associated with its previously endodontically treated deciduous predecessor. Cystic lesion growth caused impaction of the second premolar, displacing it closer to the lower border of the mandible. The lesion represents a typical dentigerous cyst that possibly arises in association with periapical inflammation of a deciduous molar involving the follicle of the premolars. This report highlights the inflammatory etiology of dentigerous cysts, which mainly occur in mixed dentition...

INTRODUCTION: Extraction sockets associated with buccal dehiscences and gingival recessions pose particular surgical and restorative challenges. In these cases, unassisted healing following flapless tooth extraction results in severe bone and soft tissue deformities and an aesthetic compromise. Root coverage procedures prior to ridge reconstruction may enable predictable alveolar augmentation. Case Presentation . This is the first case report describing the utilisation of modified tunnel procedure to facilitate ridge reconstruction consisting of ovate pontic and xenograft, of tooth #25 in a 38-year-old-male...

Background. Delusional parasitosis (DP) is a monosymptomatic hypochondriacal psychosis where the patient has the delusion of being infested with parasites, whereas Morgellons disease (MD) is described when the patient has fixed ideation of fibers or other materials emerging from skin. Both psychological and organic causes can result into the delusion of infestation, and careful examination is required to exclude secondary causes. Oral DP can result in self-inflected mutilations of the oral mucosa. To our knowledge, oral DP is only rarely reported in the literature...

Minimally invasive treatment methods are of special interest in restorative dental practice, with numerous methods emerging in the last decade. Such methods are being developed to encompass various applications, an important one being the detection and treatment of caries in the early stages. White spot lesions are the earliest visible stage of the caries process. These lesions have a chalky, opaque appearance, which results in esthetic dissatisfaction. In contrast to the principles of minimally invasive dentistry, considerable amounts of sound tooth structure need to be sacrificed to get rid of these lesions...

Pain related to temporomandibular disorders (TMD) is a common problem that can significantly influence a patient's quality of life. Laser photobiomodulation (PBM) has been reported as a promising method in medicine for wound and bone healing, pain relief, and treatment of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Our clinical case aimed to demonstrate the effectivity of PBM using 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser for the treatment of pain and restricted mandible movement in a patient with anterior disk displacement of the left TMJ, using subjective (pain on visual analogue scale - VAS) and objective outcome measures [dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)]...

This report presents an extremely rare case of MAML2 -rearranged primary central mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) of the mandible that was discovered as an incidental finding. Our review of the literature identified 36 cases of MAML2- rearranged intraosseous lesions of the jaw (30 central MECs, 5 odontogenic cysts with mucous prosoplasia, and 1 glandular odontogenic cyst). Given the therapeutic indications for a diagnosis of MEC (a malignant neoplasm), MAML2 rearrangement should be confirmed in suspected cases of central MEC...

Basaloid squamous cell carcinoma (BSCC) is a rare, distinctive, and aggressive variant of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) primarily seen in the upper aerodigestive tract with epiglottis, soft palate, and base of the tongue being site of high preference in head and neck region. It differs from conventional SCC histologically and immunologically, is most frequently found in males in their sixth and seventh decades, and is frequently linked to alcohol and tobacco use. High stage disease with distant metastases, a high recurrence rate, and a dismal prognosis is how BSCC typically manifests...

Apical periodontitis (AP) is defined as an inflammatory and destructive reaction of periapical tissues and a consequence of bacterial invasion to the dental pulp and root canal system. To avoid possible complications and undesirable repercussions of the surgical treatment of large AP, more conservative non-surgical approaches are endorsed. In the presented hopeless cases, a newly introduced modified combination of triple antibiotics, that is Penicillin G, metronidazole, and ciprofloxacin (PMC), was used as a long-term intracanal medication in the non-surgical endodontic retreatments of large AP...

In this case report, we aimed to describe a novel approach for aesthetic rehabilitation of the anterior maxilla that combined immediate implant installation with the "Bone2Soft Tissue Reconstruction" (B2S technique), which involves the use of a triple graft harvested from the maxillary tuberosity. The regeneration potential of a tuberosity graft appeared to surpass that of corticocancellous bone grafts harvested from other intraoral donor sites and allowed for quicker regeneration of both bone and soft tissue...

Brown tumours are localized bone lesions, seen in patients with high parathyroid hormone levels. This can be due to primary hyperparathyroidism, which occurs more often in neoplasms of the parathyroid gland or due to secondary hyperparathyroidism more often seen as a result of renal impairment. Facial involvement is rare, with most reports focusing on long and axial bones. However, the mandibular bone is often the only bone affected. Here, we report a rare case of a bi-maxillary attainment of brown tumour in a patient with secondary hyperparathyroidism due to chronic kidney disease...

Recently, dental implants have had the most important role in oral rehabilitation. Peri-implantitis is considered a common complication of dental implants. Adjacent natural teeth with untreated endodontic pathology may be a potential risk for implant placement. Retrograde/periapical peri-implantitis (RPI), the inverting of the progress direction of peri-implantitis. Radiographically, it is characterized by signs of periapical bone loss and normal coronal osteointegration of the implant; and its prevalence is closely associated with endodontic lesions of adjacent teeth...

Hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumour (HPT-JT) syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant disease. It is caused by a gene mutation of the tumour suppressor gene CDC73 that encodes for parafibromin. This syndrome predisposes to a triad occurrence of multiple maxillary or mandibular cemento-ossifying fibroma, parathyroid adenoma or carcinoma, and renal and uterine tumours. In this study, we report a case of HPT-JT occurring in a 30-year-old male patient.
