- Odontogenic Keratocyst Located in the Retromolar Trigoneby A. Shathur, B. Patel, G. Pitiyage, S. Cameron, N. Hyde on 26/02/2021 at 12:00 am
Odontogenic keratocysts (OKC) are a commonly occurring, benign cystic intraossesous lesion, thought to arise from the cell rests of the dental lamina. Most instances of OKC are commonly found in the posterior aspect of the mandible.In rare instances there have been reported cases of OKCs arising in the peripheral gingiva, but these cases are few and far between.Rarer still are the few documented cases of OKCs arising in other soft tissues of the mouth. There are many divided opinions on the diagnosis of these lesions and whether they are truly odontogenic in origin given their location when they are enucleated from a soft tissue area.

Bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) is one of the most frequently used treatments for jaw deformity worldwide. However, lower lip hypoesthesia is a postoperative complication of BSSO. Trigeminal somatosensory evoked potential (TSEP) can be used to evaluate neural pathway abnormalities by measuring latency. The purposes of this study were to measure latency before and after BSSO and to examine the relationship between latency and the duration of hypoesthesia recovery.

- The Power of Vaccination: From Prevention of Infectious Pandemics to the Prevention of Cancer: Why the Skepticism?by Joshua E. Lubek on 08/02/2021 at 12:00 am
To quote Benjamin Franklin “an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure”. Of course, historians would be correct in stating that this famous quote was in reference to a fire prevention speech given in his city of Philadelphia, however the statement could not be more applicable to disease prevention. Vaccine-preventable diseases are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. Furthermore, the trickle-down effects, of any such disease cannot be measured just in the specific patient mortality or disease sequelae.

- Estimation of X-ray Radiation Related Cancers in U.S. Dental Offices: Is it worth the risk?by Douglas K. Benn, Peter S. Vig on 30/01/2021 at 12:00 am
It is a little more than 125 years since Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered X-rays, with clinical applications commencing within months. 1 Although the diagnostic benefits were easily appreciated, the carcinogenic potential of low dose X-ray examinations was not for a long time.2 X-ray exposures can be divided into high dose, such as radiotherapy, fluoroscopy and low dose diagnostic radiology. Once a patient receives more than approximately 2 Grays (Gy) of absorbed dose to the skin, erythema can be seen.
- Is photodynamic therapy a viable antiviral weapon against COVID-19 in dentistry?by Betsy Joseph, C.S. Prasanth on 29/01/2021 at 12:00 am
We read the recent article1 that describes a series of 8 cases of oral manifestations of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and its management with great interest. In case 1, photobiomodulation was applied as an adjunct for symptomatic relief of oral lesions. We would like to throw light on the viral load reduction of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) by photoactivation of the photosensitizer (PS) using a specific wavelength through peroxidation that could expand the scope of photodynamic therapy (PDT) in health care during this pandemic.

Carcinoma with dual neuroendocrine and non-neuroendocrine components are recognized albeit as a rare occurrence among the head and neck tumours. Owing to a disjointed pathology taxonomy and a lack of defining criteria, these tumours have remained under-recognized and poorly understood by pathologists and oncologists. Herein, we present a heretofore unreported case of a mixed neuroendocrine non-neuroendocrine carcinoma occurring as a carcinoma ex-pleomorphic adenoma (CXPA) in the soft palate of a 32-year-old man.

- ORAL LESIONS CONTAINING AMYLOID-LIKE MATERIALby Carla Isabelly Rodrigues-Fernandes, Cinthia Bardález López de Cáceres, Maria Sissa Pereira Sant'Ana, Ciro Dantas Soares, Maria Goretti Freire de Carvalho, Willie F.P. van Heerden, Liam Robinson, Raghu Radhakrishnan, Keith D. Hunter, Ricardo Santiago Gomez, Oslei Paes de Almeida, Pablo Agustin Vargas, Ömer Günhan, Ramiro Alejandro Tomasi, Faizan Alawi, Hélder Antônio Rebelo Pontes, Felipe Paiva Fonseca on 16/01/2021 at 12:00 am
During oral pathology daily practice, true amyloid may be identified in oral amyloidosis and several odontogenic tumors. However, histological examination often reveals other oral and perioral diseases with similar eosinophilic, acellular, amorphous substances. These include extensive areas of collagenous sclerosis, fibrin deposition, elastic fiber degeneration and dentinoid material, which may resemble amyloid under light microscopic examination. These materials are often termed amyloid-like due to their close histological resemblance to true amyloid.
- Remaking the face: Pushing the boundaries of allotransplantation to the craniofacial regionby Lauren L. Patton on 16/01/2021 at 12:00 am
Innovation in modern medicine never ceases to amaze me. During my days as an oral medicine fellow at the National Institutes of Dental Research in the late 1980s, where salivary gland dysfunction was studied from various approaches, I was introduced to the concept of salivary gland transplantation. More accurately, this was the transfer of a major gland out of the planned field of head and neck radiation therapy in an attempt to preserve gland function. This gland transfer would hopefully facilitate oral health maintenance and future ability to partake in gastronomic pleasures for the cancer survivor.

Dentists must be vigilant in the search for signs and symptoms of oral cancer in their patients. Failure to recognize these features can be serious; however, the low prevalence of oral cancer makes this encounter infrequent for most dentists.1 Because the average annual incidence of oral cancer in the United States is estimated to be 12 per 100,000 population,2 every dentist is open to the probability of encountering patients with this disease.

- Complications after mandibular setback with intraoral vertical ramus osteotomies: a retrospective cohort analysis of 133 patientsby Torbjørn Ø. Pedersen, Vivian Haaberg, Sigbjørn Løes on 08/01/2021 at 12:00 am
Several surgical techniques can be performed to achieve setback of the mandible. The bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) is most frequently used, but vertical ramus osteotomies performed through extra- or intraoral access can achieve the same sagittal and occlusal relations1,2. The disadvantage of the BSSO is a relative high ratio of neurosensory disturbance (NSD), ranging from 10-20% in most studies3. Also, surgical site infection (SSI) can be encountered, and may require additional surgery for removal of osteosynthesis-material4.
- Oral findings and treatment of patients with face transplants in Helsinkiby Annika Norrman, Karita Nylund, Hellevi Ruokonen, Jari Mauno, Karri Mesimäki, Aaro Haapaniemi, Patrik Lassus, Jaana Helenius-Hietala on 08/01/2021 at 12:00 am
Face transplantation (FT) is performed for patients with severe facial disfigurements due to trauma caused by burns, ballistic injuries or animal attacks, or severe congenital or attained malformations. The goal of the FT is to restore missing or injured facial structures, improve quality of life (QOL), and enhance functional abilities, such as chewing, swallowing, breathing, talking, and esthetics.1 The first FT was performed in 2005.2-4 Currently, the estimated global number of FTs is 44, performed in 17 different centers.
