Assessment of correlation of periodontal pathogens in endoperio lesions
Haresh Kalvani, Hardikkumar Babulal, Vaishali Jitendra Kalburge, Nimisha Chaudhary, Rohit R Thakkar, Jagruti D Ahir
October-December 2022, 10(4):85-87
Background: There is still debate concerning the path of infection inside the endodontic-periodontal niche since it is not obvious if the bacterial migration takes place via dentinal tubules. Aim: With endodontic periodontal disorders, this research sought to link periodontal pathogens. Materials and Methods: A total of 100 patients of the two sexual orientations participated in this research. Every single member of the group was recruited from the endodontics and periodontology fields and had a history of endoperio sores on the same teeth. Relationships were established and a polymerase chain reaction was conducted. Results: Our findings indicate that out of 100 patients, 68 were men and 32 were women. The average lifespan for men was 35 years, whereas the average lifespan for women was 30 years. Result shows that isolates of Tannerella forsythia, Porphyromonas gingivalis, and Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans were found in 95% endodontium and 92% periodontium, 13% endodontium, and 58% periodontium, respectively. Conclusion: In parallel endodontic and periodontal diseases, the levels of the targeted bacterial species correlated. Thus, it is conceivable to hypothesize that dentinal tubules act as a pathway for the spread of bacteria.

Evaluation of the perception of single-visit root canal treatment and the reasons for taking the decision among the dental practitioners
Rahul Sasidharan
October-December 2022, 10(4):88-90
Introduction: Even though the idea and technology behind doing root canal treatment (RCT) in a single appointment is not new, the majority of the currently approved methods focus on multivisit systems. A tooth’s root canals can be instrumented, cleaned, and sealed all in a single appointment with one-visit root canal therapy. The length of time a patient must visit an endodontist in order to finish a root canal procedure is a hotly contested topic in the field of endodontics. When it comes to this topic, people have a lot of diverse points of view. Objective: The purpose of this research was to learn how and why dentists decide to do root canals in a single appointment. Materials and Methods: After reaching out to all 200 dentists on file at the practice, we were able to secure the participation of 150 dentists, who were then sent a questionnaire to fill out in their own time. Economic and social factors, current therapeutic cycles, rationales, and proactive dispositions were also taken into account. Results: Majority of pulp vitality was cited as the primary reason for opting for the one-visit RCT by 65% of dentists, with patient preference accounting for 25%, patent and normal roots accounting for 5%, a non-vital tooth with a sinus for 3%, and other reasons accounting for 2%. When pulp vitality is not at risk, more dentists opt for a single-visit root canal procedure.

Background: There is a growing and more diverse selection of dental materials on the market, which presents a challenge for dentists who specialize in restorative and prosthetic treatment. Objectives: This survey investigated dentists’ preferences for materials used in the fabrication of tooth-supported single crowns (SCs), taking into account the location of the abutment teeth and the width of the preparation margin. Materials and Methods: The survey aimed to learn more than just basic information about dentists and their practices; it also inquired about the dentists’ go-to materials for making crowns and bridges on abutment teeth, and whether or not those teeth were prepared supra- or subgingivally. Results: A total of 500 dental experts from Karnataka were included in the overview. Dental professionals who did not practice in Karnataka or who delivered less than one fixed dental prosthesis per month were not included in the evaluation. Regardless of the projection tooth and planning edge area, dental practitioners favored heated materials. In terms of materials for SCs without projection tooth areas and supragingival arrangement edges, clay was preferred by the majority of participating dental professionals (75%), followed by porcelain fused to metal (PFMs) (20%) and metal (5%). For each of the four projection teeth, dental specialists most frequently chose lithium-X-silicate ceramics (60%) followed by layered zirconia in the front region and solid zirconia for the molars. 85% of dental specialists who expressed interest in materials for SCs with subgingival planning edges favored pottery, whereas 15% preferred PFM. Conclusion: The clinical situation guides the selection of SC restorative materials by Indian dentists. Several dentists mentioned ceramic materials as their preferred materials for tooth-supported SCs.

A simple, smart, and convenient way of fabricating a hollow maxillary complete denture: A case report
Riddhi Sharma, Naveen Oberoi, Ravpreet Singh, Jaspreet Singh
October-December 2022, 10(4):94-102
Residual ridge resorption is a very common phenomenon observed in edentulous patients over a certain span of edentulism. Though it occurs more rapidly in mandibular arch than in maxillary arch, severely resorbed maxillary ridges with increased inter-ridge distance often lead to difficulty in prosthetic rehabilitation. This case report describes an easy yet accurate method for fabrication of a hollow maxillary complete denture using super-absorbent polymer as a spacer for the hollow cavity using a single flask technique.

Pleomorphic adenoma of hard palate: A novel case report
Sankar V Vichattu, Arun George, Joy R Das, Atic Thomas, Linta S George
October-December 2022, 10(4):91-93
Pleomorphic adenoma (PA) is one of the most commonly seen benign tumors that affect salivary glands. Among the major salivary glands, it mostly affects the parotid, whereas in the hard palate it affects the minor salivary glands, which account for about 40–70% of all salivary tumors. This case report describes a case of an edentulous female who developed a mixed tumor in the minor salivary gland of the hard palate, which was successfully removed by surgical excision.
