Surgical removal for khat inducible verruca vulgaris lesion of the oral mucosa
G GazalNigerian Journal of Clinical Practice 2019 22(3):439-441 The harmful effects of khat chewing on the oral mucosa membrane are still uncertain. Verruca vulgaris (common warts) is a benign lesion of skin and mucous membranes and can be caused by human papillomavirus. The lesions are typically self-limited but may vary in size and number. The occurrence on the floor of mouth is extremely rare. To the best of our knowledge, there are few number of oral lesions reported in connection with khat users. This case report shows that the chronic khat chewing has contributed to the development of verruca vulgaris warts that wer...

Mini-implant-supported twin-block appliance: An innovative modification
T Tripathi, N Singh, P Rai, P GuptaNigerian Journal of Clinical Practice 2019 22(3):432-438 Twin block is a commonly used appliance for correction of retrognathic mandible in growing patients. However, it has a drawback of causing lower incisor proclination, which reduces its potential of achieving maximum skeletal effects. Thus, we introduced a novel modification in the present design to facilitate greater anteroposterior effects in skeletal dimension. The aim of the present case reports is to evaluate the efficacy of this modified twin block. Here we present two cases treated with mini-implant-supported twin-block appli...

In vitro investigation of antimicrobial effects, nanohardness, and cytotoxicity of different glass ionomer restorative materials in dentistry
Conclusions: All materials tested showed low antimicrobial activity, and the antifungal activity of these materials was found to be lower than their antimicrobial activity. Only Argion showed non-cytotoxic effect. Beginning with the group with the highest nanohardness values and ending with the lowest, the groups are ranked in the following order: Fuji II LC capsule, EQUIA Forte, Argion, Fuji IX GP capsule, and Zirconomer.

Is minimal invasive technique harmful in treatment of urethral stricture ?
Conclusion: DVIU is easy, simple, and noninvasive technique in treatment of urethral stricture, so it is frequently used among urologists. However, it could not be an alternative technique to open urethroplasty. Internal urethrotomy can be used in some certain indications. Success rate of open urethroplasty can be affected by previous history of any endoscopic procedures. (Source: Nigerian Journal of Clinical Practice)

Laser-assisted management of ectopic eruption of permanent incisors
V Ciftci, HN Uguz, M OzcanNigerian Journal of Clinical Practice 2019 22(2):276-280 Ectopic eruption originates from the malpositioning of a tooth bud ending in the eruption of the tooth in an improper direction. This anomaly is a consequence of ectopic development of the tooth germ. This condition gives rise to significant aesthetic and occlusal issues in the early mixed dentition stage. The most frequently influenced teeth are the maxillary first molars, accompanied by the maxillary cuspids. Ectopic eruption is seldom seen and might derive from traumatic injury. In some cases, hyperplastic and fibrotic gingival tissue ma...
