A histological continuum between dentinogenesis imperfecta and dentin dysplasia: A case report with literature review
Nikita Gulati, Saurabh Juneja, Akriti Singh, Iqbal SinghIndian Journal of Dental Research 2019 30(4):643-646 Dentinogenesis Imperfecta and dentin dysplasia are genetic oral diseases inherited in a simple autosomal dominant mode, with high penetrance and a low mutation rate. Both of them are present with bulbous crowns, marked cervical constrictions, severe attritions, few periapical radiolucencies, and premature tooth loss. The diagnosis is based on family history, and detailed clinical examination, while genetic diagnosis may become useful in the future once sufficient disease-causing mutations have been discovered. Here...

Kedo file system for root canal preparation in primary teeth
Ganesh Jeevanandan, Sagareeka Ganesh, Arthilakshmi Indian Journal of Dental Research 2019 30(4):622-624 Endodontic instruments play a vital role during root canal preparation. Biomechanical preparation in primary teeth is performed using the adult endodontic files. There are various disadvantages during use of adult endodontic files in primary teeth namely the length and taper of the files. Recently, an exclusive paediatric endodontic file system has been introduced for cleaning and shaping of primary root canals. This short communication describes the use of exclusive Kedo-SH manual and Kedo-S rotary file system in prima...

Innovative method & #8220;DV-PIMS & #8221; technique and dental implant design for grafting injectable platelet-rich fibrin around the dental implant & #8211; Goat jaw cadaver study
Conclusion: There are various techniques of using PRF. These techniques need skill and practice to use PRF. This (DV-PIMS) method aims to explain new implant design that disperses an i-PRF solution from inside out. The screw section of the new implant is made of a reservoir running vertically down inside. That reservoir is filled with (injectable) PRF, and then a cover screw is placed. The solution will begin to slowly diffuse out, through the vents in implant, keeping biofilms from forming or avoiding at the screw–bone interface and accelerate healing process.
