The tests used were Oneway ANOVA, correlation and linear regression analysis. The confidence level for this study was 95% and the p-value for statistical significance was set at less than 0.05.</p> <p><strong>Result: </strong>Males had a greater mean inter alar width compared to females. It showed a highly statistically significant Gender Dimorphism for inter alar width <em>. Also </em>Males had a statistically significantly greater mean Combined Mesio Distal Width of Maxillary Anterior Teeth compared to females. The Pearson correlation test showed a weak negative correlation for male, weak positive correlation for female and a positive but weak correlation for the combined data between inter alar width and combined mesiodistal width of maxillary anterior teeth.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> The study result could be used as a base data for further studies with larger sample size.</p> <p><strong>Key words: </strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;Edentulous, Esthetics, Denture, Nasal Width , Odontometry.</p> 2022-01-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 UNIVERSITY JOURNAL MAXILLOFACIAL SURGERY AND ORAL SCIENCES “Is 4% articaine better than 2% lignocaine during bilateral impacted maxillary canine extraction- a split mouth randomised clinical trial” 2021-10-01T14:11:16+00:00 Sourav Kumar Dipti Nayak Musaab Khan Shashank Kumar Neha Nayak Nagesh Upreti <p><strong><em>Aims and Objective:</em></strong><em> To compare the efficacy of 4% articaine hydrochloride and 2% lignocaine hydrochloride in the impacted&nbsp; bilateral maxillary canine extraction.</em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;<strong>Materials and Methods:</strong> &nbsp;In this split mouth randomised clinical trial study was carried out in 10 patients who underwent extraction of impacted maxillary canine.

Removal of the impacted lower wisdom became a routine surgical procedure in the dental office. Because of The increased number of surgical removals of impacted mandibular third molar a variety of complications can occur postoperatively. One of these complications is flap separation and exposure of the alveolar bone leading to increase the incidence of infection and postoperative pain. This problem encouraged the surgeons to create different flap designs to improve the healing process of the soft tissue. In my article I discuss a case report showing surgical removal of impacted lower third molar using uncommon flap design in order to enhance the proper healing of the soft tissue in the surgical site.</p> 2022-01-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 UNIVERSITY JOURNAL MAXILLOFACIAL SURGERY AND ORAL SCIENCES Aenomatoid odontogenic tumour of mandible- Report of a rare case 2021-11-18T07:02:11+00:00 Suhas K Hasti Kankariya Venkatesh Hange Shrey Srivastava <p>Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor is a benign neoplasm comprising of 3% of all the odontogenic tumors.

Shubhanshi Omar Sunil Kumar Mishra Prince Kumar <p>Anatomic reduction of condylar fracture of an atrophic mandible is a challenging scenario due to reduced blood supply and absence of teeth in the mandible. Fracture fixation by closed reduction is the desired treatment plan considering the age and medical condition. For this condition, closed reduction can be achieved by providing gunning splint in mandible which functions as a bite block, enabling maxillomandibular fixation and reduction of fractured segments. In this case report we have highlighted the usage of gunning splint in the mandible for closed reduction of high condylar fracture thus improving prognosis of the patient.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2022-01-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 UNIVERSITY JOURNAL MAXILLOFACIAL SURGERY AND ORAL SCIENCES Penetrating Trauma Due to Head of A Toothbrush : A Case Report 2021-09-04T04:42:45+00:00 Jeevan Lata Malvika Gupta Sri Sudarsan P K <p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong></p> <p>We present a case of 39 yr old female with penetrating trauma caused by a toothbrush due to fall in bathroom while brushing.

KALEEM ANSARI Anupriya L Marimuthu P Syed Sayeed Ahmed <p>Post traumatic restriction of mouth opening after fractured mandible or midface is a common complication. Though various conservative management are being practiced, treating the cause for the hindrance of mouth opening is very important for a sustained long term outcome. Here, we are reporting a case of zygomatic maxillary complex fracture with the chief complaint of reduced mouth opening. The patient was treated by intra-oral coronoidotomy. Mouth opening increased from 9 mm to 36.5mm. Hence coronoidotomy or coronoidectomy should be considered during management of trismus due to various reasons like Oral sub mucous fibrosis, coronoid hyperplasia and zygomatic ankylosis with the mandible.</p> 2021-10-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 UNIVERSITY JOURNAL MAXILLOFACIAL SURGERY AND ORAL SCIENCES
