The complete mechanism of Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) development is still not fully understood, knowing that several different factors can cause this disease. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an auxiliary tool to determine the possible cause. This paper reviews the architecture of the trigeminal nerve that is important to TN, describes the imaging appearance of vascular compression of the trigeminal nerve in TN patients, and discusses the relationship between these findings and the causative T

In a research of immature apex closure carried out in 6 young mongrel dogs, polyglycolic acid (PGA) and amelogenin protein (RAP), generated by recombinant DNA technology, were compared.s. Pulp tissues of mandibular and maxillary premolars were completely removed during root canal treatment of all teeth. (n = 120). The cavities were left opened for 14 days. Canals were cleaned, watered, and divided equally for RAP or PGA treatment (n = 60). The treated teeth were removed from the mice after 1 and

Dental caries and periodontal disease are mostly caused by plaque buildup, a complex biofilm that builds up on the oral cavity's hard tissues, or teeth. Oral illnesses including periodontal disease and dental caries can be brought on by plaque biofilms. Hence, to maintain a healthy oral cavity, there are many ways to prevent plaque accumulation through mechanical plaque control aids. This study aims to consider the effect of water floss on marginal microleakage (RMGI). This study consists of

Endodontic infections are difficult and may cause long-term issues as well as accepted consequences. Cleaning the root canals is necessary to keep the tooth in a non-pathological state. Moreover, teeth that are growing and infected may delay the growth of the roots and eventually cause other issues. Anaerobic bacteria that are polymicrobial and required stand out in endodontic infections. Drugs like Ledermix may permeate the cementum and dentinal tubules to reach the periodontal and periapical t

Prosthodontics, a discipline including both art and science, is dedicated to the comprehensive management of patients with dental conditions due to the absence or inadequacy of teeth, as well as oral and maxillofacial tissues. Its core objectives are diagnosis, strategic planning, rehabilitation, and maintenance of patients' functional, comfortable, and healthy oral states. The major approach used for the treatment of this condition is prosthesis replacement. Prosthodontics primarily focuses

Intraoral wounds are susceptible to infection, and this has been quoted as one of the significant justifications for postoperative wound dehiscence and discomfort. An intraoral dressing that is moisture-proof and adherent, poses a perfect answer to safeguarding the surgical site. Such a dressing may shield the wound from physical, thermal, or bacterial harm as a result of consumption of food or contamination by saliva. The purpose of this systematic review is to compare cyanoacrylate and collage

Resin composites were first used as aesthetically pleasing materials for front dental restorations, and their use for posterior teeth followed swiftly. Composite restorations still have several shortcomings, even with the advancement of adhesive techniques and the development of composite resins. One of the main problems is polymerization shrinkage, which may cause debonding between the resin composite and tooth structure. This results in minor discoloration and secondary caries that might short
