Non-Surgical Re-Treatment of Failed Surgical Endodontic Therapy Using Propolis as an Intra-Canal Medicament: A Case Report
Abhishek Parolia,M. Kundabala
Research Journal of Medical Sciences , 2012, DOI: 10.3923/rjmsci.2010.292.297
Abstract: This study describes a case of successful nonsugical endodontic retreatment of upper left central and lateral incisors with large apical radiolucency lesion which had previously undergone endodontic therapy with surgical intervention. The teeth were treated endodontically for 2 years with an interim filling of propolis mixed with propylene glycol. After 2 years, the postoperative intraoral periapical radiograph showed good periapical healing with complete resolution of periapical radiolucency. A thorough clinical evaluation, proper diagnosis and careful nonsurgical retreatment can often bring healing even in previous endodontic and surgically failed cases.

A. Parolia,M. Kundabala
Journal of Dentistry of Tehran University of Medical Sciences , 2010,
Abstract: Supernumerary paramolars are a rare anomaly of the maxillofacial complex. They are more common in the maxilla than the mandible. This article reports a rare case of bilateral maxillary paramolars, their complications and management.
Disappeared roots: A case report
Arathi R,Kundabala M,Karen B
Journal of the Indian Society of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry , 2008,
Abstract: Tooth resorption is a perplexing problem for all dental practitioners. The etiologic factors are vague, the diagnoses are educated guesses and, often, the chosen treatment does not prevent the rapid disappearance of the calcified dental tissues. This becomes all the more confusing if the tooth in question is a pulpally involved young permanent tooth. Presented in this report is the case of an upper first young permanent molar that underwent complete root resorption following root canal therapy and obturation.
Immediate reattachment of fractured tooth segment using dual cure resin
N Joshi,N Shetty,M Kundabala
Kathmandu University Medical Journal , 2008, DOI: 10.3126/kumj.v6i3.1718
Abstract: Crown fracture of maxillary anterior teeth is frequent dental injuries for which patients seek immediate dental treatment. Immediate reattachment of the intact fractured tooth segment is a therapeutic choice in such cases. This case report presents one of the best methods used for reattachment, which is an ultraconservative technique. It allows the restoration of original tooth contour, colour and aesthetics. Key words : Crown Fracture, Aesthetics, Dual cure resins doi: 10.3126/kumj.v6i3.1718 Kathmandu University Medical Journal (2008), Vol. 6, No. 3, Issue 23, 386-388 ???? ?
The retreatment of a mandibular second premolar with unusual canal anatomy
AEV Pai,S Gautam,M Kundabala
Kathmandu University Medical Journal , 2009, DOI: 10.3126/kumj.v7i3.2741
Abstract: Mandibular premolars usually have a single root and canal. Complex root canal system with atypical variations is a common finding among them. Failure to identify such a one can affect the prognosis of endodontic treatment. Apart from knowledge and sophisticated instruments, a good clinical expertise is required in identifying, tracing and treating such a root canal system. This case report is on the retreatment of a left mandibular second premolar (44) having a Vertucci's Type III canal configuration. Inability to identify this canal configuration led to a missed canal, faulty obturation and post treatment apical periodontitis.

Three rooted, four canalled mandibular first molar (Radix Entomolaris)
A Parolia,M Kundabala,MS Thomas,M Mohan,N Joshi
Kathmandu University Medical Journal , 2009, DOI: 10.3126/kumj.v7i3.2739
Abstract: A mandibular first molar with two distal roots is an interesting example of anatomic variation. This paper describes case reports of mandibular first molar with three roots (one mesial and two distal) and four canals (two in mesial and one in each distobuccal and distolingual root). The canals were shaped with protaper rotary files and irrigated with 5.25% sodium hyochlorite, 0.2 %w/v of chlorhexidine gluconate and normal saline as the final irrigant. The canals were then obturated with gutta- percha and AH plus sealer. These case reports show an anatomic variation of internal morphology of the tooth and points out the importance of searching for additional canals.
Effects of saliva contamination and decontamination procedures on shear bond strength of self-etch dentine bonding systems: An in vitro study
Neelagiri Krishna,Kundabala M,Shashi Rashmi,Thomas Manuel
Journal of Conservative Dentistry , 2010,
Abstract: Objective: This study aims to evaluate the effect of saliva contamination on the shear bond strength of two self-etch dentine bonding systems and also investigate the effect of decontamination procedure on the recovery of bond strength. Materials and Methods: Sixty premolars extracted for orthodontic reason were obtained and the buccal surfaces of teeth were reduced to create a flat dentine surface. The samples were randomly divided into three sub-groups for AdheSE (ASE) (Ivoclar - Vivadent, Schaan, Liechtenstein) and three sub-groups for Adper Prompt Self-Etch Adhesive (ADP) (3M ESPE, St Paul, MN, USA) of 10 each. For AdheSE (ASE); ASE-I was the control group (primer applied to fresh dentine surface), ASE-II was the contamination group (primer applied, followed by saliva contamination and then air dried) and ASE-III was the decontamination group (primer applied, followed by saliva contamination, air dried and then primer reapplied). For Adper Prompt (ADP); ADP-I was the control group (self-etch adhesive applied to fresh dentine surface), ADP-II was the contamination group (self-etch adhesive applied, followed by saliva contamination and then air dried) and ADP-III was the decontamination group (self-etch adhesive applied, followed by saliva contamination, air dried and then self-etch adhesive reapplied). Followed by the bonding procedure, a 5 mm composite resin block with Filtek P-60 (3M ESPE, St Paul, MN, USA) was built on the substrate. Shear bond strength (SBS) was tested with Instron Universal testing machine (Instron Corporation, Canton, MA, USA) with a cross head speed of 1 mm per minute. Data obtained was subjected to one way ANOVA test, while the inter group comparison was made using Tukey′s multiple comparison and Unpaired t-test. Results: In AdhSE group (ASE), the sub-group ASE-II (contamination group) [5.4 ± 2.2 MPa] showed lower SBS than ASE-I [11.8 ± 2.6 MPa] and ASE-III [8.9 ± 3.3 MPa], which was statistically significant. There was no significant difference in the bond strength between the ASE-I (control group) and ASE-III (decontamination group). In Adper Prompt group (ADP), there was a severe decrease of bond strength in ADP-II (contamination group) [4.6 ± 1.1 MPa] when compared to ADP-I (control group) [7.4 1.4 MPa] and ADP-III (decontamination subgroup) [14.1 ± 2.2 MPa] which was statistically significant. The bond strength of ADP-III wherein Adper Prompt bonding agent was reapplied after salivary contamination was found to be statistically significant than ADP-I and ADP-II. Conclusion: Saliva contamination reduces the dentine bond
Comparison of the shear bond strength of RMGIC to a resin composite using different adhesive systems: An in vitro study
Arora Varun,Kundabala M,Parolia Abhishek,Thomas Manuel
Journal of Conservative Dentistry , 2010,
Abstract: Aim: This study evaluated and compared the role of newer dental adhesives to bond composite resin to the resin modified glass ionomer (RMGIC) liner. Materials and Methods: Thirty-six specimens were prepared on acrylic blocks, with wells prepared in it by drilling holes, to retain the RMGIC. The specimens were randomly divided into three groups of 12 specimens each. In group I, a thin layer of an adhesive, which was a Total-etch type (Adper Single bond-2), was applied between RMGIC and the composite resin. Ingroup II, a Self-Etch adhesive (Adper prompt-L pop) was applied, and in group III there was no application of any adhesive between RMGIC and the composite resin. After curing all the specimens, the shear bond strength was measured using an Instron universal testing machine. Results: The results were drawn and tabulated using ANOVA-fishers and Tukey′s statistical tests. The maximum shear bond strength values were recorded in group II specimens with the self-etch adhesive (Adper prompt-L pop), showing a mean value of 5.826 when compared to the group I adhesive-Total-etch type with a mean shear bond strength of 4.6380, while group III specimens, where no adhesive was used, showed a minimum mean shear bond strength of 2.8385. There was a great and significant difference between group I and group II (P value 0.003), whereas, both group I and group II showed a vast and significant difference from group III (P value 0 - 001). Conclusion: Hence, this present study concludes that application of Self-Etch adhesive (Adper prompt-L pop) in between RMGIC and composite resin increases the shear bond strength between RMGIC and the resin composites, as compared to the Total-etch type adhesives (Adper Single Bond 2), as well as, without application of the adhesive agent.
