Arteriovenous malformation of the parotid gland: Diagnostic perspective- A case report
Hima John, S Padmashree, Padma Pandeshwar, Sayyad Zohabhasan InnusIndian Journal of Dental Research 2020 31(1):164-166 Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) of the parotid gland is an extremely rare condition with very few cases reported in the literature. Majority of the swellings in the parotid region are usually due to sialadenitis, tumour etc., therefore making the initial diagnosis of vascular malformation may be difficult if there is no evident Turkey-wattle sign. Here, we present a case of AVM of parotid gland with its clinical features, radiographic features and its management. The lesion, being a high flow one, was ma...

Cone beam computed tomography aided endodontic and aesthetic management of fused mandibular incisors with communicating canals
We report a case of unilateral fusion of the left mandibular central incisor and lateral incisor, with a single pulp chamber. The single pulp chamber separates into two root canals and a large communication exists at the apical third of the root canals. This is the first time fused teeth with a large communication is reported. CBCT analysis was effective in confirming the morphological aberrations and aided in accurate planning and treatment. Chemomechanical preparation with manual dynamic irrigation coupled with passive ultrasonic activation of the irrigant and obturation with thermoplasticised gutta percha helped in succ...

Pooja Siwach, Tabita Joy, Shuddhodhan Gaikwad, Vikas MeshramIndian Journal of Dental Research 2020 31(1):157-159 Cysts of the oral cavity are among the most commonly encountered biopsy specimen in histopathology. Shear categorized the cysts associated with maxillary antrum under four subheadings – mucocoele, retention cyst, pseudocyst, and postoperative maxillary cyst (PMC). PMC is also known as surgical ciliated cyst, postoperative paranasal cyst, or respiratory implantation cyst. Although it constitutes 20% of oral cysts in Japan, it is quite rare in the other parts of the world. Herewith, we report a case of ...

Age estimation by assessment of dentin translucency in permanent teeth
Conclusion: Dentin translucency in the apical part of the tooth can be used for estimating the age of an individual. A method to digitally select and measure translucent root dentin length was used here. This software method is easy to use and less time-consuming. The measurements obtained using this method are more precise and thus help in more accurate age estimation. Considering these benefits, this study recommends the use of digital method to assess translucency for forensic purpose. (Source: Indian Journal of Dental Research)
