"Competency" and tomorrow's oral diagnostician.
Immediate mandibular reconstruction and placement of dental implants. At the time of ablative surgery.
The outcomes of surgical reconstruction for patients who have undergone extensive tumor resection of the mandible and associated soft tissue have been less than desirable for many reasons: lack of cancer cure, radiation problems, as well as inadequate functional reconstructive results. These patient...
Stability of sagittal split osteotomies. A comparison of three stabilization techniques.
The objective of this study was to retrospectively evaluate stability of mandibular advancement after bilateral sagittal split osteotomies were performed. Three different fixation and immobilization protocols were examined. Thirty-three patients were evaluated with preoperative, immediate postoperat...
Peripheral odontogenic fibroma.
The peripheral odontogenic fibroma is characterized by a fibrous or fibromyxomatous proliferation that contains varying amounts of odontogenic or presumed odontogenic epithelium. It has been considered a rare gingival neoplasm that, because of a lack of follow-up information in most reported cases,...
Effect of intracanal use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents on posttreatment endodontic pain.
The ability of intracanal use of two nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents--diclofenac and ketoprofen--with and without hyaluronidase to control posttreatment pain was compared with that of a placebo control in a double-blind study of 760 subjects. The study was carried out on originally asymptomati...
Submandibular gustatory sweating.
Oral melanotic macules that develop after radiation therapy.
We report on a patient with widespread oral melanotic hyperpigmentation that developed after a course of radiotherapy for metastatic carcinoma in the cervical lymph nodes. As no other local or systemic cause was evident it is possible this abnormal hyperpigmentation was a result of the radiotherapy....

Gustatory sweating is a relatively common sequela to parotidectomy and is almost always unilateral in nature. This article presents a case of bilateral gustatory sweating in a patient with no history of facial trauma or surgery who was undergoing periodontal therapy. A thorough exami...
Orofacial artefactual disease.
We present three cases of deliberately self-induced lesions and discuss the problem of diagnosis and management of these cases....
Topical application of capsaicin for treatment of oral neuropathic pain and trigeminal neuralgia.
Neuropathic pain may be a major cause of pain in the head and neck. Trigeminal neuralgia may appear as intraoral pain. This article reviews a series of 24 consecutive cases of oral pain treated with topical capsaicin. Complete remission of neuropathic pain was seen in 31.6% of patients; partial remi...
