Caio Peres Bellato, Thiago Calcagnotto, Camila de Souza Arantes, Eduardo Sanches Goncales, Victor Tieghi Neto, Danilo Louzada de Oliveira
The dentigerous cyst is the second most frequent odontogenic cyst after the root, being typically asymptomatic and commonly incidentally diagnosed. The objective of this case was to describe a successful treatment of a dentigerous cyst associated with an unerupted lower third molar, which extended from the condyle to the premolar region, treated by decompression followed by surgical enucleation. That said, a 19-year-old female patient, black, without underlying pathologies, came to the dental of...

The Gap of Awareness in Orthodontic Treatment

Yulia Peeva
The individual’s awareness of malocclusion, like the necessity for orthodontic treatment, seems to be different at different ages, as observed in orthodontic referrals. The information originating by orthodontist and proposed to the patient may be filled in writing and in oral form. The contemporary world requires that it can appear on-line, too. The aim of the study is to define the gap of ch

Odontogenic Myxoma in a Pediatric Patient: A Case Report

Carmen Lucía Guzmán, Marcela Torrealba, Gisaku Kuramochi
Odontogenic myxoma (OM) is a benign intraosseous tumor, but locally invasive, having a high rate of recurrence. It preferably locates in posterior mandibular regions, followed by the incisors, maxillary and; exceptionally, the mandibular condyle. Odontogenic myxoma can be found most often in young adults aged 25-35 years although lesions may occur over a lifetime, reporting the lowest prevalence in childhood with a predilection fo

First Maxillary Molar Position Alteration in Class II Division 1 Malocclusion Treatment with Maxillary Premolar Extraction

Elih Sayuti, Bergman Thahar, Eky S. Soeria Soemantri, Hermawan Nagar Rasyid
Treatment of Class II division 1 malocclusion mostly required two maxillary first premolars in order to provide spaces for maxillary anterior teeth retraction. Anterior teeth retraction may cause loss of anchorage. This study aimed at evaluating the effects of anterior teeth retraction towards first maxillary molar loss of anchorage. It was conducted by observing any mesial drifting of first maxillary molar occurred in patients wi

Herpes Simplex Virus 1, Cytomegalovirus and Epstein Barr Virus Detection in Patients with Chronic and Aggressive Periodontitis

Harold H. Hernández, Andreína S. Fernandes, Laura A. Escalona, María Correnti
Recent investigations suggest that the viruses of the family Herpesviridae are associated with periodontal disease, demonstrating a possible association with the presence of Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV), Herpes Simplex Virus 1 (HSV-1) and Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) in periodontal tissues. Aim: To analyze the association between the presence of HSV-1, HCMV and EBV in patients with chronic or aggressive periodontitis. Methods: Crevicular fluid samples were collected from 11 patients with aggressive ...

Primary Extranodal Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Mimicking a Painful Gingival Swelling: A Case Report

Ayhan Tetik, Cem Peskersoy, Banu Ozveri Koyuncu, Murat Cihan Solmaz, Guray Saydam
Diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL), the most common subtype of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL), is an aggressive, rapidly growing neoplasm which is the most common lymphoid neoplasm affecting adults. Jaw involvement of NHL is rare, but among jaw lesions, the maxilla is more frequently involved than the mandible. Primary lymphoma of the mandible is often misdiagnosed clinically. A 43-year-old man admitted to the Ege University, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the Faculty of Dentis...

Gene Mutations Associated with Temporomandibular Joint Disorders: A Systematic Review

Dhruvee Sangani, Akiko Suzuki, Helena VonVille, James E. Hixson, Junichi Iwata
Background: The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a bilateral synovial joint between the mandible and the temporal bone of the skull. TMJ disorders (TMDs) are a set of complicated and poorly understood clinical conditions, in which TMDs are associated with a number of symptoms including pain and limited jaw movement. The increasing scientific evidence suggests that genetic factors play a significant role in the pathology of TMDs. However, the underlying mechanism of TMDs remains largely unknown. ...
