Idiopathic lingual mandibular sequestration and its relationship to medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaws (MRONJ): mini review

Quintessence International

Rutvi Vyas, et. al


Objective: Idiopathic lingual mandibular sequestration is an uncommon condition that affects the lingual aspect of the mandible and may result in a necrosis of the jaw that is clinically indistinguishable from medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw. This condition, however, is not associated with the intake of antiresorptive medication and may not require the same safeguards for extended periods of time. The etiology of idiopathic lingual mandibular sequestration is still unknown although trauma has been shown to play an important role.

Trifurcated Mental Foramina: A Cone-Beam Computed Tomography Incidental Finding During the Implant Treatment Planning


Rutvi Vyas, Anita Gohel


The mental foramen is a known skull anatomical structure located bilaterally on the mandible along the buccal cortical plate. It is located approximately between the roots of premolars in the anteroposterior dimension, and its supero-inferior level on the alveolar height varies in every individual. The position of the mental foramen is very crucial when surgical interventions are planned in the area.

Prospective cohort study to evaluate narrow diameter implants for restoration of a missing lateral incisor in patients with a cleft palate: One-year results

The Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry

Lisa A. Knobloch, et. al


Patients diagnosed with a cleft palate often have a congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisor. The congenital cleft presents the practitioner with challenges including the quantity and quality of bone, a surgically managed cleft correction, and limited clinical area. The purpose of the present prospective investigation was to report preliminary results at the 1-year follow-up for this planned 5-year investigation of narrow diameter implants used to restore a missing lateral incisor in patients with a cleft palate.
