Prosthodontic rehabilitation helps the patient to cope up with masticatory difficulties and esthetic disfigurement, which arise as a consequence of morbid surgeries. The successful rehabilitation of such cases depends on strategic treatment planning. We report a case of a patient with mandibular Ameloblastoma who underwent marginal mandibular resection which resulted in many limiting factors like obliterated buccal and lingual sulci. Masticatory and speech inefficiency were chief concerns. Impression making and fabrication of a retentive prosthesis were the main challenges. Post-surgical radiographic examination revealed poor bone support. Therefore, a hollow cast partial denture using lost salt technique was fabricated and delivered to the patient.</p> Prithika Eswaramurthy, Aniket U.

Generally, a tooth diagnosed with irreversible pulpitis can be treated and maintained successfully with conventional root canal treatment. However, emerging scientific evidence has shown that such teeth treated with pulpotomy as a first line of treatment provides increasingly predictable results. In this case report, the author describes a step-by step treatment procedure for pulpotomy in an adult tooth. Proper case selection and adhering to a rigid clinical protocol contributes to a successful outcome of pulpotomy treatment. In this case, Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) was placed as a capping material; haemostasis was achieved within 4 minutes and the tooth was restored with an excellent margin.</p> Noryagandi Abu Bakar ##submission.copyrightStatement## Wed, 07 Oct 2020 00:00:00 +0000
