Evaluation of cheiloplasty and palatoplasty on palate surface area in children with oral clefts: longitudinal study

This study aimed to evaluate the palatal surface area in children with different oral clefts after primary surgeries and at 5 years of age. This is a longitudinal study was composed by 216 digital models: unilateral complete cleft lip (UCL), unilateral complete cleft lip and palate (UCLP), and complete cleft palate (CP). The models were analyzed at four periods: T1 (before cheiloplasty), T2 (before palatoplasty), T3 (after palatoplasty); and T4 – 5 years. Area of dental arches was measured through stereophotogrammetry software.

Comparative study of the anaesthetic efficacy of 4% articaine versus 2% lidocaine with adrenaline during extraction of mandibular molars using an inferior alveolar nerve blocking technique

Various anaesthetic agents have been used in dentistry for the extraction of teeth. The most commonly used local anaesthetic agent is lidocaine hydrochloride. Recently, articaine hydrochloride came into existence because of its versatile properties and longer duration of action. Due to lack of study of effects of articaine on various systems, the present study is aimed to compare the anaesthetic efficacy of articaine and lidocaine with adrenaline during the extraction of mandibular molars. A total of 100 patients was randomly divided into two groups (50 each) and clinical variables such onset and duration of anaesthesia, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, pulse...
