Ankyloglossia or tongue-tie leads to a variety of speech and associated problems. Frenectomy with diode lasers when compared to conventional surgical techniques provides reduced or negligible blood loss along with little or no postoperative pain. Lasers have become an amicable and widely prospective treatment modality in Pediatric Dentistry. Its high acceptability rate among children have embedded in designing and formulating stress free environment in Pediatric Dentistry. Hence it is essential to be familiar with adequate knowledge and needed treatment modalities according to the child’s developing pattern. This article presents with case reports in which diode laser had been utilized for frenectomy procedure.</p> <p><strong>Keywords:</strong> Laser treatment, Diode Laser, Pediatric Dentistry, Ankyloglossia, Frenectomy</p> 2022-02-19T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Dental and Clinical Study https://ijdcs.com/index.php/ijdcs/article/view/53 Sleep Bruxism Between Working and Non Working Women in North Madras 2022-04-25T04:12:43-04:00 Prabu D researchphdsrm@gmail.com Bharathwaj V V researchphdsrm@gmail.com Sindhu R researchphdsrm@gmail.com Raj Mohan M researchphdsrm@gmail.com Savitha S researchphdsrm@gmail.com <p><strong>Background</strong>: Sleep bruxism is a periodical, stereotype movement disorder characterized by an involuntary, parafunctional, excessive grinding of the teeth during sleep. This disorder is common among general population and represents the third most parasomnia<strong>. Aim</strong>: The aim of this epidemiological study was to examine the relationship between psychological job stress, general health between the sleep bruxism among working and non working women residing at North Madras.</p> <p><strong>Methods:</strong> The study was undertaken to assess the sleep bruxism among working and non working women in North Madras. Subjects were assessed by the demographic data, their general health, general job information in the form of questionnaire and they have been examined for the tooth wear index.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> A total of 200 females participated of which 100 were working and 100 were non working women. Overall implication of study shows that the bruxism increases with increase in the stress. The non working women who were under higher stress showed increased bruxism rate.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> We conclude that sleep bruxism was highly associated with some aspects of stress in working women but not in non working women residing in North Madras.</p> 2022-04-25T00:00:00-04:00 Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Dental and Clinical Study https://ijdcs.com/index.php/ijdcs/article/view/51 ROOT CANAL TREATMENT OF MANDIBULAR FIRST MOLAR WITH CONSTRICTED CURVED ROOTS USING HYFLEX EDM: A CASE REPORT 2022-04-14T13:05:50-04:00 Anil K Tomer ayanguin1993@gmail.com Ayan Guin ayanguin1993@gmail.com Nivedita Saini ayanguin1993@gmail.com Kanika ayanguin1993@gmail.com Shaik Muzammil Taj ayanguin1993@gmail.com <p>This case demonstrate passage therapy of 4 -canal mandibular first molar. Acute exacerbation was noted on previous intervention. Four canals (mesio buccal, mesio lingual, disto buccal, disto lingual) were identified. Clinician must be aware of the variations within the passageway anatomy of first molar. During clinical examination, the dental<br />practitioner should identify the extension of decay and possibility for restoration, mouth opening and accessibility and future involvement as a functional component in an exceedingly proposed treatment plan. Every clinician should know abount the root anatomy and curvature of the canal before proceeding to the endodontic treatment. The mandibular first molar is the most imporatant and functional tooth of the mandibular arch, so conservation of this tooth is very necessary in dental practice.</p> <p><strong>Keywords: </strong>Endodontic treatment, first molar, curved roots</p> 2022-04-28T00:00:00-04:00 Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Dental and Clinical Study https://ijdcs.com/index.php/ijdcs/article/view/54 PREVALENCE OF DENTAL CARIES AND ORAL HYGIENE STATUS OF BISCUIT FACTORY WORKERS IN MADURAI CITY 2022-04-25T04:51:21-04:00 Prabu D researchphdsrm@gmail.com Sindhu R researchphdsrm@gmail.com Raj Mohan M researchphdsrm@gmail.com Bharathwaj V V researchphdsrm@gmail.com Savitha S researchphdsrm@gmail.com <p><strong>Aim:</strong> To assess the oral hygiene status and prevalence of dental caries among the biscuit factory workers in Madurai city.</p> <p><strong>Materials and Methods: </strong>This cross-sectional study was conducted among 100 biscuit factory workers of whom 56 were males and 44 were females between the age group of 19-50 years. Their oral hygiene status was assessed by using oral hygiene index simplified ( John C Greene and Jack R Vermillion), dental caries was assessed using DMFT index (Henry Klein and Carol E Palmer) and sugar consumption was assessed using sweet score.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>The study population composed of 56 males and 44 females<strong>. </strong>The present study showed that there was mean sweet score of &lt;5 in 0% of subjects (excellent zone), mean score of 10 in 2% of subjects (good zone) and mean score of &gt;15 in 98% of subjects (watch out zone). Mean oral hygiene status was found to be 2.83 which can be interpreted as poor score, mean DMFT was 5.06.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>The results show that dental caries is highly prevalent among biscuit factory workers and it increases with sugar consumption. This is due to widespread neglect of oral hygiene and direct exposure to sugar dust.</p> <p><strong>Keywords</strong>: Dental caries, Oral hygiene status, Sugar consumption, biscuit factory workers</p> 2022-04-25T00:00:00-04:00 Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Dental and Clinical Study https://ijdcs.com/index.php/ijdcs/article/view/52 CONE BEAM COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHIC EVALUATION OF FRACTURE STRENGTH OF MAXILLARY MOLARS WITH THREE DIFFERENT ACCESS CAVITY DESIGNS. - AN INVITRO STUDY 2022-04-21T15:54:39-04:00 G.Sudharsan sudharsanmds@gmail.com PalaniSelvi Kamaraj selvi.endo@gmail.com Vidhya Raguganesh statsvidhya30@gmail.com Hemalatha p selvi.dentico@gmail.com <p><strong>Aim: </strong>To evaluate the fracture strength of endodontically treated extracted maxillary molars with three different access cavity designs– Traditional Endodontic Cavity (TEC), Conservative- “TRUSS” Endodontic Cavity (CEC) and Ultra conservative “NINJA” Endodontic Cavity (NEC)access preparations and to correlate it to the volume percentage of enamel and dentin removed which was measured using Cone Beam Computed Tomography.</p> <p><strong>Materials And Methods: </strong>Sixty intact human maxillary molars extracted for periodontal reasons were selected and the samples were randomly grouped (n= 20) into Group I – Traditional (TEC), Group II – Conservative (CEC) and Group III - Ninja (NEC) endodontic access cavities. All the tooth samples were subjected to a Pre- operative CBCT imaging (NEWTOM cone beam computer tomography). Using Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine data (DICOM) software the total enamel and dentin crown volume for each tooth were calculated. Then, access cavities of all teeth were prepared in respected groups and then subjected to a post-operative CBCT imaging. The volume percentage of coronal enamel and dentin removed by the 3 access cavity preparations were calculated using DICOM software again. The biomechanical preparations and obturation were done, followed by a post-endodontic coronal restoration with light cure composite resin. The samples were then tested for the fracture resistance using the Instron Universal Testing Machine. The loads at which the tooth crowns were fractured were recorded in Newtons. The data obtained were statistically analyzed.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>The results showed that as the Volume of the tooth structure removed during the cavity preparation is inversely proportional to the fracture resistance of the teeth. Hence the Group III NEC group showed statistically significant mean difference values with minimal loss of volume % of tooth structure removed (7.92%),suggesting that this can influence positively in the increase in fracture resistance (1403.08 N) of the tooth following a coronal restoration.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>Within the limitations of this study it can be concluded that the Group III Ultra-conservative ”NINJA” access showed increased fracture resistance of endodontically treated maxillary molars with the least mean volume percentage of tooth structure removed when compared to TEC and CEC groups.</p> <p><strong>Keywords:</strong></p> <p>Traditional Access cavity, Truss access, Ninja access, Cone beam computed tomography, Post- Endodontic Restoration, Fracture resistance.</p> 2022-05-04T00:00:00-04:00 Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Dental and Clinical Study
