    ABSTRACT: Aim: This randomized controlled trial was conducted to evaluate the effect of foraminal enlargement during chemomechanical root canal preparation on postoperative pain. Methodology: Seventy mandibular first molars with asymptomatic pulp necrosis and chronic apical periodontitis were randomized into two groups- foraminal enlargement (FE) and conventional non-foraminal enlargement (NFE). Canals were prepared according to the respective protocols and the teeth were restored temporarily. Postoperatively, the patients were prescribed ibuprofen 400 mg, to be taken if required. Pain experience and analgesic intake were recorded for 7 days following chemomechanical preparation. The data were analysed using Mann-Whitney U and Chi-Square tests. Results: Pain experience was higher with foraminal enlargement than when using a conventional technique. A significant difference was observed in postoperative pain during the first four days and the sixth day (P < 0.05), with greater pain in the FE as compared to the NFE group. There was no significant difference in prevalence of analgesic intake and number of doses between the experimental groups (P > 0.05). Conclusion: Enlargement of the apical foramen during root canal treatment increased the incidence and intensity of postoperative pain. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: Primary immune thrombocytopenia is an acquired bleeding disorder with no clinically apparent cause of thrombocytopenia. Clinical indicators of ITP include easy bruising of the skin, prolonged bleeding on injury, mucocutaneous lesions such as petechiae and ecchymosis, epistaxis, gastrointestinal bleeding, hematuria and bleeding from the gums. It is important for a dentist to be aware of the clinical manifestations of ITP as it may not only lead to successful management of the patient, but in some cases it may even lead to formation of a provisional diagnosis of the condition in previously undetected cases. However, very few cases of ITP have been reported in dental practice making it difficult for a dentist to identify the disorder when a patient suffering from ITP reports for dental treatment. A case report of a female patient with ITP is thus described with emphasis on the importance of periodontal health in such patients to prevent consequent unwanted sequelae. It is followed by discussion of oral manifestations of the disorder and dental management of such patients.

    ABSTRACT: Calcium hydroxide has been used extensively in dentistry for a century. Despite its widespread use as a pulp-capping agent, its mechanisms of action still remain ambiguous. Understanding its modes of action will lead to a broader understanding of the mechanisms associated with induced dentinogenesis and help in optimizing the currently available agents to target specific regenerative processes to obtain the best possible clinical outcomes. A literature search relating to mechanisms of dentinogenesis of calcium hydroxide up to December 2011 was carried out using pubmed and MEDLINE database searches as well as manual searching of cross-references from identified studies. Resulting suggestions regarding dentinogenic mechanisms of calcium hydroxide range from direct irritating action of the material to induction of release of biologically active molecules. The purpose of this article is to discuss various mechanisms through which calcium hydroxide may induce tertiary dentinogenesis in the light of observations made in included studies.

    ABSTRACT: Background: The association between serum lipids and periodontal disease has been studied predominantly in chronic periodontitis patients with limited data available regarding periodontal status of hyperlipidemic subjects. Meanwhile, the impact of statins on the periodontal health of the population also remains largely under-explored. This study aims to assess the periodontal status among hyperlipidemic subjects and statin users. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 94 hyperlipidemic subjects (50 on statins and 44 on non-pharmacologic therapy), and 46 normolipidemic controls underwent periodontal examination [plaque index (PI), gingival index (GI), probing depth (PD), and clinical attachment level (CAL)]. Biochemical parameters measured included serum triglyceride (TG), total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels. Results: PD and GI were significantly higher in non-statin hyperlipidemics compared to normolipidemic [(P <0.001(PD) and P <0.05 (GI)] and statin group [(P=0.001 (PD) and P <0.05 (GI)]. Periodontal parameters between statin and normolipidemic group did not differ significantly. After adjusting for confounders, positive and significant correlations were observed between PD and TG, TC and LDL while CAL shared correlation with TC and LDL. GI was correlated with TG and TC. Regression analyses revealed that while TC was significantly associated with PD (P <0.001), LDL showed significant association with CAL (P=0.013). TG showed significant association with GI (P=0.020). Conclusions: Our findings suggest that relative to the general population, hyperlipidemic subjects are more prone to periodontal disease. Also, within the limits of this study, it may be stated that statins have a positive impact on periodontal health.
