It began with the use of Niti 0.14 for the correction of anterior teeth crowding. Teeth 53 and 63 extraction were performed and continued with Niti 0.18 wire to correct crowding and obtain sufficient eruption spaces for teeth 13 and 23. The surgery used an open window procedure with a full-thickness triangular flap to open the canine crown, bracket placement, and canine retraction using an elastomeric chain.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> Within five months, the crowding was corrected, and enough space was obtained for the canine eruption, and within three months, the canine had reached the occlusal plane perfectly.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> Bilateral impacted canines can be treated with a combination of surgical procedure and retraction with orthodontic treatment to achieve optimum occlusion and aesthetic function.</p> Tita R.

Clinical examination revealed a cavity on the disto-occlusal side achieve half the crown of the tooth with a dentin depth. Percussion: (+), palpation: (-), mobility: (-), vitality: (-). Radiograph examination revealed radiolucent area mesial root and ± 1.5mm radiopaque images that are thought to be file fractures in the apical foramen. Vertical radiolucent lines on dental bifurcation were detected vertical bone loss was evident on mesial root of the lower right molar with furcation involvement. Management of the patient is hemi section and Porcelain fused to metal crown splinter.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>After one month of hemi section, no pain detected, the gingiva shows good healing, no Intra and extraoral swelling, trismus was absent, and objective examination percussion test was (-) and mobility (-).</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>Hemi section is a conservative and effective treatment of choice overcome vertical radiolucent lines on dental bifurcation and broken file in the apical foramen.</p> Yunita Styaningrum, Rebbecca A.

This method is selected to orthodontically corrected central diastema while eliminating deep bites and other existing malposition in this case.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> Central diastema and deep bite corrected, as well as other malposition. However, the frenulum labialis which was planned to undergone frenectomy was postponed to avoid an open gingival embrasure (black triangle).</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> Correction of central diastema done by using a conventional orthodontic appliance MBT system. However, the disposal of frenulum labialis should not always be done, because it should consider the possibility of the emergence of gingival embrasure (black triangle) after the Labialis frenulum was discarded.</p> Karpov RB.

It is a relatively rare occurrence in the palatine glands.</p><p><strong>Methods: </strong>A 40-year-old man was referred to our department with a complaint of an intraoral mass. At the time of the initial examination, a large elastic hard mass of approximately 10 cm in diameter accompanied by ulceration in parts was found extending from the gingiva of the molar region in the right maxilla throughout the entire palate. Based on the imaging and histopathological examination findings, the clinical diagnosis was suspected to be malignant tumor of the palate.</p><p><strong>Results:</strong> The patient underwent palatal tumor enucleation, right-sided supraomohyoid neck dissection, and immediate reconstruction with an osteocutaneous radial forearm flap under general anesthesia. The histopathological diagnosis was myoepithelial carcinoma ex-pleomorphic adenoma. In addition, postoperative radiation therapy was performed. There has been no evidence of recurrence or metastasis for three years postoperatively.</p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>We report a case of large myoepithelial carcinoma ex-pleomorphic adenoma of the hard palate that was immediately reconstructed with an osteocutaneous radial forearm flap.

Tooth extraction is one of the treatments performed in the oral region that cause wound. Application of substance or medicine might help accelerate and improve wound healing.</p> <p><strong>Material and Methods: </strong>Twenty-four rabbits divided into three groups: negative control, positive control with 10% povidone iodine, and treatment group with 10% ethanol extract gel of noni leaf. The tooth was extracted from the mandibular left incisor. The diameter of the wound area was examined on day 0, 3, 7, and 14 while the osteoblasts cell count was obtained from rabbits’ specimen in each group on 14<sup>th</sup> day. Measurement of wound diameter was done by using calipers, while the number of osteoblasts were calculated using toluidine blue histochemistry stain and light microscope with 400x magnification.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>The ratio of wound diameter were better in treatment group with significant difference (p=0.048) while osteoblasts cell count were not significantly different among all groups.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>Topical application of noni leaf had an effect in decreasing mucosal wound diameter but there was not any evidence yet that it was increased osteoblast cells on socket wound healing process.</p> Indah PR.
