A rare triple tooth in primary dentition: CT findings

Publication date: December 2017Source: Pediatric Dental Journal, Volume 27, Issue 3Author(s): Irem Mergen Gultekin, Serdar Uysal, Melek Dilek Turgut, Sema Dural, Meryem TekcicekAbstractTriplication is a rare dental anomaly and defined as the fusion of three teeth. In the present case report, a five-year-old healthy girl with the triplication of the two mandibular primary right incisors along with a supernumerary tooth was presented. A periapical radiograph, panoramic radiograph and cone-beam tomography of the triple tooth revealed separate pulp chambers combining in the cervical area and forming one pulp canal along the root. In the treatment planning, pit and fissure sealant was applied for prevention and the patient was recalled for regular follow-up appointments. After 24 months, the triple tooth had been replaced by the permanent successor without any dental abnormality.

ConclusionsThe pattern of regional LN metastasis in cIA peripheral NSCLC was significantly influenced by tumor size, which may provide evidence on surgical choice (lobectomy, segmentectomy, or wedge resection) for these early-stage NSCLC patients based on tumor size.

Conclusions: Cases with silicosis can develop complications like tuberculosis, lung cancer, progressive massive fibrosis, cor pulmonale, broncholithiasis, or tracheobronchial compression by lymph nodes. Pleural involvement in silicosis is rare. Spontaneous pneumothorax is a pleural complication that can develop in such cases. Usually in silicosis pneumothorax is unilateral. We report here an original article with silicosis who presented with bilateral spontaneous pneumothoraxes occurring simultaneously. The rarity of its clinical presentation in the form of bilateral simultaneous spontaneous pneumothorax combined with the ...

We hypothesized that (1) STA provided significant radiographic correction of low longitudinal arch and forefoot abduction in paediatric FFF and that (2) mid-term clinical outcomes were satisfactory and comparable to a normal population.MethodsA retrospective compara...

Abstract PURPOSE: Modular fluted tapered stems are one of the most commonly used implants in femoral revision surgery. Due to the relative lack of studies on the Restoration modular fluted tapered stem, we conducted a study to evaluate its short- to mid-term clinical, radiographic, and survival outcomes. METHODS: We identified all 45 patients treated with this revision stem at our institution. Five patients did not complete the minimum 2-year follow-up, leaving 40 patients (41 hips) for assessment. Mean follow-up was 5.1 years (range 2-11 years). Clinical outcomes were assessed using the Harris hip score (HHS...

ConclusionsDespite the differences in PDS protocols at both study sites, there was no significant difference in 90-day mortality rates after valvular surgery. Further randomized comparative prospective studies are needed to validate and expand on these findings.

ConclusionsHere, we reported a series of 29 cases of MRONJ with related mandibular or palatal tori among 391 consecutive patients in the Copenhagen ONJ Cohort . We documented that 59% of these cases were associated with trauma, and that in some cases, trauma was preventable (e.g., trauma from impression taking and intubation). Dentists as well as anesthesiologists should be aware of the presence of tori in patients on antiresorptive therapy. Surgical treatment was more successful (100%) compared with nonsurgical treatment (40%).

ConclusionsMaxillofacial manifestation of bone metastasis is common but is often overlooked. Therefore, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis when a patient with a history of antiresorptive medications presents with a gingival mass and/or exophytic bone. Good clinical judgment and well-timed bone biopsy and diagnostic imaging can lead to the correct diagnosis and optimal treatment.

ConclusionsDental providers should consider malignancy, including lymphoma, although uncommon, in the differential diagnosis of jaw pain, particularly when thorough evaluation fails to disclose a dental etiology, routine dental interventions fail to control symptoms, or there are atypical clinical or radiographic findings.

This study aims to analyze the incidence of calcification of the stylohyoid ligament through panoramic radiographs, considering its importance in clinical routine. Five hundred digitalized panoramic radiographs taken in 2017 were analyzed considering the incidence of the calcification of the stylohyoid ligament. The material was classified according to age, sex, and the affected side. According to the analysis, it was possible to identify a high frequency of calcifications (88%). It was observed that patients aged between 21 and 30 years old were the most affected ones (32.2%). Despite its probability, no significant diffe...
