Endonasal Endoscopic Resection of Odontogenic Cysts and Tumors with Maxillary Destruction

Julian Simkin, Santiago Marinelli and Carlos Santiago Ruggeri

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 17, 2023

Odontogenic cysts and tumors located in the upper jaw are infrequent and when they grow up can cause bone destruction. The histologies of odontogenic cysts and tumors are diverse and the treatment is surgical. Different surgical approaches have been described to be able to perform complete exeresis of these lesions, based mainly on obtaining adequate exposure....

A Review of the Current Literature Evaluating If There is a Positive Correlation Between Dental Implant Success When Combined with Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT) in Human Clinical Studies

H. Dexter Barber

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: July 20, 2022

Low level light therapy (LLLT), or photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) uses focused light to stimulate cellular metabolism, which can decrease pain as well as accelerate the healing process. Photobiomodulation therapy is defined as a form of light therapy that utilizes non-iodizing light sources, including lasers, light emitting diodes, and/or broadband light, in the visible (400-700 nm) and near infrared (700-1100 nm) electromagnetic spectrum....

The Use of Virtual Surgical Planning for Management of Ameloblastoma: A Case Report

Akash Sivam, Yi Long Roy Ong, Ankit Garg and Paul Sillifant

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: February 16, 2022

Ameloblastoma is a rare progressively growing epithelial odontogenic neoplasm. Although benign, it can expand and invade surrounding structures, and to reoccur if not adequately removed. Current treatment is wide local excision with reconstruction. Traditional reconstructive options included autologous tissues, however, with the advent of virtual surgical planning and custom prosthesis surgeons can provide an increasingly precise functional and aesthetically pleasing reconstruction. The case pre...
