Periodontal status of ectopic canines after orthodontic treatment.
Conclusion: All ectopic canines had increased plaque and gingival bleeding index, greater pocket depths, reduced attached gingival width, higher gingival levels, increased crown lengths, higher electric pulp testing scores, and reduced bone levels compared to their contralaterals.

We report the safety and effectiveness of this technique.MethodsWe conducted a retrospective analysis of 16 consecutive patients who employed this technique from January 2015 to March 2018. The radioactive feeding tube was made by binding the125I seed chain on the feeding tube. Under fluoroscopic guidance, the tube was inserted into the obstructed esophagus, with the seed chain crossing over the segment of malignant esophageal obstruction. Technical success rate, dysphagia score, procedure time and complications were analyzed. Kaplan –Meier analysis was used to analyze the survival time.ResultsThe radioactive feeding...
Conclusions: The immediate replacement of a single maxillary tooth by implants combined with guided bone regeneration is a predictable treatment modality with favorable peri-implant bony response.
Authors: Parpaiola A, Toia M, Norton M, Cecchinato D, Bressan E, Lops D Abstract This retrospective study evaluated hard and soft tissue response and reported mechanical and technical complications around computer-aided design/computer-assisted manufactured (CAD/CAM) abutments. A total of 123 patients restored with titanium, gold-hue titanium, and zirconia CAD/CAM abutments were included (N = 291). Each patient was followed up for at least 2 years. Clinical and radiographic parameters were assessed annually and complications were recorded. No implant or reconstruction failures were reported. One fracture of a zirco...
Conclusion: Within the limits of this retrospective study, it can be concluded that postmenopausal osteoporosis/osteopenia does not affect MBL and long-term implant success. The findings suggest that dental implant therapy is a reliable treatment modality in these patients to improve the quality of life by increasing function and aesthetics.
ConclusionJejunal telangiectasia with bleeding is a very rare intestinal vascular disease, which is difficult to identify and diagnose clinically. Therefore, the possibility of this disease should be considered in patients with negative results through some examinations such as gastroscopy, enteroscopy, gastrointestinal barium meal radiography, etc. In order to treat in time and prevent bleeding
Paracentesis can be a quick and simple procedure with the right equipment and a well-rehearsed approach. It's important to practice this skill in the procedure lab and to familiarize yourself with the kit in your department a few times a year. This month, we focus on paracentesis set-up and basics, and next month we will review the nuts and bolts of completing the procedure.Important equipment for paracentesis: Five or six collection bottles, antiseptic prep, and a paracentesis kit. Consider longer needles for abdominal walls thicker than 2.5 cm.Grab the ultrasound and a pen. Position your patient at a 45-degree angle, ...
Conclusion EUS-guided coil embolization in combination with hemostatic AGS is a novel method for management of bleeding GV with high clinical and technical success rates, low risk for complications and favorable safety profile when compared to cyanoacrylate. This technique theoretically minimizes embolic complications and need for re-intervention. Further studies are required to compare this modality.

ConclusionsScurvy is caused by vitamin C deficiency. Cutaneous bleeding, mucosal bleeding, and anemia represent typical manifestations of the disease. These symptoms are directly connected to ascorbic acid involvement in collagen biosynthesis. Some radiographic findings can be useful for the diagnosis. Treatment aims to normalize serum levels of vitamin C in order to counteract the deprivation symptoms. The present case report demonstrates that scurvy may sporadically occur in pediatric patients, even in individuals with no predisposing medical conditions and/or potential risk factors.
ConclusionsLongitudinal microbiology evaluation detected a shift period. Final intergroup microbiological differences were the basis of W17 clinical intergroup differences, with higher values in TI. Microbiological and clinical changes detected in peri-implant tissues were compatible with onset of peri-implant disease. Despite histological inflammatory intergroup difference, no histological or radiographic intergroup bone loss was detected.Clinical relevanceThis study set-up describes a valuable method for generating “true” early peri-implant defects without mechanical trauma.
ng HL Abstract AIM: To assess the impact of keratinized mucosa (KM) width around dental implants on surgical therapeutic outcomes when treating peri-implantitis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Surgically treated peri-implantitis implants were divided into two groups(KM width
