Evaluation of proximity of mandibular molars and second premolar to inferior alveolar nerve canal among central Indians: A cone-beam computed tomographic retrospective study
Conclusion: For the second premolar, the average distance to the IANC was 0.88–13.03 mm for males and 0.00–5.49 mm for females. The average distance of IANC to the mesial root apex of first molar was 1.46–13.23 mm for males and 0.93–8.03 mm for females. For the second molar, the average distance was 1.31–14.71 mm for males and 0.00–6.91 mm for females (values on left side were shorter as compared to right side). In the overall population, only second molar exhibited significant difference in the distance from root apex to IANC when compared bilaterally. In addition to gender differences,...

Modified endaural approach for the treatment of condylar fractures: A review of 75 cases
Conclusion: Surgery for mandibular condyle fractures with modified approach allows direct vision of the fracture and reduces surgical trauma to the site while avoiding permanent facial nerve injury. Hence, the author's modified Al-Kayat Bramley incision via endaural approach could be considered as the best approach for open reduction and internal fixation of condylar neck and subcondylar mandibular fractures.

Evaluation of dentine hypersensitivity in adult population with chronic periodontitis visiting dental hospital in Chandigarh
Conclusion: The prevalence of dentine hypersensitivity in chronic periodontitis patients was 37.2% according to questionnaire and 47.8% according to the results of clinical test. Periodontal attachment loss could be an earlier indicator or a possible risk factor of DH. Only 14.36% of the patients with sensitive teeth used desensitizing paste. This could be due to the fact that either the patients did not consider the condition bad enough to warrant treatment or it was not being diagnosed.

A rare nonsyndromic presentation of bilateral doughnut shaped lip pits in an Indian child
Senthil Balasubramani, Sudhakar Sankaran, Abhishek Madhavan, Selvakumar JayaramanIndian Journal of Dental Research 2016 27(2):223-225 Lip pits are a rare congenital anomaly that presents on the upper or lower lip or the commissure of the lips. Lip pits are an autosomal dominant trait occurring almost always in association with cleft lip or palate. They most commonly occur in association with developmental disturbances such as Van der Woude's syndrome, popliteal pterygium syndrome, oro-facial-digital syndrome, Marres-Cremers syndrome, and Hirschsprung disease. Its occurrence in nonsyndromic individuals is extremely rar...

Dental unit water lines decontamination with the aid of nanotechnology
Conclusions: Biofilm formation in DUWLs is inevitable with the subsequent release of part of microbiota into the otherwise sterile dental settings. These consequences can be quite serious on clinicians and dental patients. Though conventional measures in water decontamination have been partly successful, the quest for more foolproof methods has led to the use of latest technology, i.e., nanotechnology. The most practical option has to be chosen based on the ease of their usage. (Source: Table of Contents : Indian Journal of Dental Research : 2006 - 17(3))

Evaluation and comparison of transverse and impact strength of different high strength denture base resins
Conclusions: Within the limits of this in vitro study, (1) There is a definite increase in impact strength due to the incorporation of butadiene styrene rubber in this high strength denture base materials as compared to Trevalon used as a control.
