    6. Odontogenic Keratocyst Treatment with Marsupialization and Decompression: A Case Series

    Odontogenic cysts such as the odontogenic keratocyst are benign lesions that have the potential for aggressive infiltrative behavior and undesirable comorbidities. Treatment of these lesions with conservative techniques such as marsupialization and decompression have proven and lasting benefits. The following series presents two cases in which conservative treatment of odontogenic keratocysts resulted in lesion elimination, spontaneous bone fill, and stability lasting at least 5 years.

    12. 3-D Printing of a Customized Bone Scaffold using Beta- Tricalcium-Phosphate, Alginate, and Cellulose Nanofibers: A Novel Test

    Three-dimensional bio printing of tissues and biological structures has been proposed to enable precise manufacture of various biomaterials with complex 3D architectures, while being compatible with multiple cell sources and being customizable to patient-specific needs. The construct developed presented with mechanical stiffness that can be transported to an intra-oral bone defect and secured to the recipient site.

    16. The Role of Antimicrobials in the Success Rate of Dental Implants

    Single tooth replacement implants were placed following two-staged implant placement protocol under aseptic conditions. In the test group, 430 patients were randomly prescribed with an antibiotic, whereas in the control group 430 patients were randomly prescribed with a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug after implant procedure. Patients were scheduled for a regular check-up every 6 months. At the end of three years, 8 implants were lost from test group and 11 implants from the control group.

    24. Periodontal Perspectives of Autologous Blood Preparations

    Periodontitis is an infectious disease of the dental attachment apparatus. Untreated periodontitis leads to bone loss and attachment loss. Though several periodontal treatments are available, only some of them are regarded as true regeneration. Regeneration is reconstitution of both hard and soft tissues in both structure and function. Various modalities such as bone grafts and substitutes, guided tissue regeneration (GTR) membranes and polypeptide growth factors (PGFs) are used for periodontal regeneration. Platelet concentrates are the richest source for polypeptide growth factors. This review highlights various platelet concentrates, and their clinical applications in the treatment of periodontal diseases.
