Haemodynamic changes and emergence delirium in children undergoing isoflurane general anaesthesia for dental treatments: effect of propofol administration
ConclusionsWhen administration of single dose of propofol is used for the prevention of Emergence Delirium, constant monitoring of expired CO2 values during and after the end of intubation is essential. It can be suggested that administration of a single dose of 1 mg·kg−1 propofol prevents emergence delirium in paediatric dental patients; nevertheless this finding should be confirmed with prospective clinical trials.

Synchronous gubernacular canals with compound odontoma associated with a calcifying odontogenic cyst and transmigrated canine: An extremely rare event
This article reports the novel incidental concurrences of multiple oral lesions in a 13-year-old boy. Radiographically, an over-retained primary canine was seen with a subjacent mixed radiopacity and transmigrated permanent canine with a suspected dentigerous cyst (each with gubernacular canals). Treatment consisted of enucleation and removal of the impacted canine. The histopathologic findings were compound odontoma containing multiple tooth-like structures and calcifying odontogenic cyst with epithelium containing ghost cells, calcifications and subjacent fibrous connective tissue wall. All cases of odontomas should unde...

Class III β-tubulin expression during hard tissue formation in developing mouse teeth
In this study, we investigated TUBB3 expression in the developing mouse teeth using immunohistochemistry. Similar to previous research, immunohistochemistry with TUBB3-specific antibodies showed immunoreactivity in the nerve fiber around the tooth germ. However, TUBB3 immunoreactivity was minimal or not seen at all in the tooth germ at early cytological and histological differentiation stages of developing teeth. However, the immunoreactivity was intense in odontoblasts during dentin formation and in most ameloblasts at the secretory stage. Intense immunoreactivity was observed only in some ameloblasts at the maturation st...

A case of supernumerary tooth in the mandibular anterior region – Report on a rare case of five mandibular incisors
We report the case of a 7-year-old male patient with five incisors including one impacted tooth in the mandibular anterior region. We extracted one of the four erupted teeth to assure the eruption of the impacted tooth within the dentition. Eleven months after tooth extraction, the incisor erupted within the dentition and the incisors exhibited close to normal arrangement. This case indicates that favorable outcomes can be achieved for cases of supernumerary teeth in the mandibular anterior region by treating in the early mixed dentition period.
