The Prevalence and Management of Vitamin D Deficiency in People with Type Two Diabetes: Systematic Review

Abstract : Type 2 diabetes mellitus is an increasingly prevalent chronic healthcare condition with a range of systemic complications. Vitamin D is an essential micronutrient that has been associated with the pathogenesis of type two diabetes, specifically in reducing insulin resistance and systematic inflammation. Understanding the prevalence of Vitamin D deficiency in type two diabetes patients can significantly help in comprehending the gaps in the T2DM management protocols and can improve the management


Impact of Diode Laser on Shear Strength and Intrapulpal Temperature During Debonding Orthodontic Brackets

Abstract : This study investigates the effect of various diode laser wavelengths (450, 810, and 980 nm) on the ease and safety of orthodontic bracket removal, particularly focusing on the required force for debonding anxd the intrapulpal temperature change during laser application. A total of 72 noncarious premolars with bonded brackets were utilized. These were divided into four groups (18 specimens each): Group 0 (G0), debonding without laser; Group 1 (G1), using an 810 nm diode laser; Group 2 (G2), usin


DEVELOPMENT OF BEET (BETA VULGARIS) SOLUTION AND RED DRAGON FRUIT SOLUTION (HYLOCEREUS COSTARICENSIS) AS DISCLOSING NATURAL AND SAFE DENTAL PLAQUE SOLUTION (MATERIAL IDENTIFICATION)

Abstract : Dental plaque is the cause of gingivitis, namely inflammation of the gums and tooth decay or dental caries. Therefore it is necessary to detect dental plaque, by using a solution material that can color the dental plaque. The solution is beets and red dragon fruit as natural and safe ingredients. The purpose of this study was to identify the effectiveness of beetroot solution and red dragon fruit solution to identify dental plaque by the Quasy Experimental research design. The sample of this res


The Effect of Use of Mouthwash Chlorhexidine and Herbal Betel Leaf on Systolic and Dyastolic Pressure

Abstract : One way to prevent dental and oral diseases that many people use is to control plaque chemically using mouthwash. Anti-bacterial mouthwash, both chemical and herbal, has the ability to reduce the number of pathogenic bacteria in the mouth. From previous research, the use of 0.20% Chlorhexidine mouthwash twice a day for 7 consecutive days causes disruption of the balance of the oral microbiome. This situation reduces the production of Nitric Oxide in saliva which involves nitrate reducing bacter


Transcrestal Sinus Grafting With Immediate Implant Insertion Using Densa Burs in Severely Resorbed Alveolus: A Special Case Report

Abstract : Dental implants are considered the first option for restoring edentulous arches. However, many factors can affect implant placement in the maxillary posterior region, such as alveolar bone resorption, expansion of the maxillary sinus and low bone density. Various techniques have been introduced to address these challenges, including the use of short implants, pterygoid implants, zygomatic implants and vertical grafting by elevating the floor of the maxillary sinus. In particular, maxillary sinus


CYP1B1 Mutation in Primary Congenital Glaucoma with Acute Corneal Hydrops

Abstract : Primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) is a common disorder in Saudi Arabia. Stromal Oedema owing to leakage of aqueous humour through a tear in Descemet's membrane (DM) is charachtaristic of acute corneal hydrops, and has been reported in cases of PCG. The question do these eyes react differently after this. Wether the inheritance of acute DM break in acute corneal hydrops or the eyes reacts differenetly from congenital glaucoma seems uncertain. In this report, we describe a case of a 13-day-old chi


The Effect Of Herbal Extracts Added To Calcium Hydroxyde As A Potential Direct Pulp Capping Material From A Biological Marker Perspective : A Systematic Review

Abstract : This study was aimed to evaluate the biomarkers used to mark the formation of reparative dentin on an exposed pulp following application of combination of herbal extracts with Ca(OH)2 as a potential pulp capping material. Databases are obtained from PUBMED, Wiley Online Library, Google Scholar and ScienceDirect for the last 10 years from 2013 to 2023. The keywords used to search for electronic articles are: (herbal extract OR natural product OR natural medicine) AND (direct pulp capping) AND (re


The Impact of Covid-19 Pandemic on Contact Lens Wearers A Questionnaire-Based Study

Abstract : COVID-19 caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus or SARS-CoV-2 was announced as a worldwide pandemic on March 11, 2020, by the World Health Organization (WHO). This resulted in a significant shift in social interaction and changes in people’s daily lives, including the use of contact lenses. This study investigated attitudes and behaviours toward contact lens wearing among existing users during the pandemic. A web-based cross-sectional online survey was conducted during the COV


A rare case of thrombocytopenia in child with iron deficiency anemia

Abstract : Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is usually associated with thrombocytosis. However, there are few reported cases of IDA with thrombocytopenia. We presented a 10-year-old Saudi girl presented with generalized fatigue, bruises in her body, found to have anemia and thrombocytopenia. The final diagnosis was iron deficiency anemia and thrombocytopenia.


Unfiltered Nanofat or Conventional Nanofat Graft as a Solution to Acne Scars

Abstract : This study aimed to compare conventional Nanofats and unfiltered Nanofats in terms of their ability to heal Acne scars. The study sample consisted of 16 patients divided into two groups: Group 1 (Experminteal, n=8) Unfiltered Nanofats graft for treatment of acne scars, and Group 2 (Control, n=8) Conventional Nanofats graft for treatment of acne scars. Post-treatment clinical follow-ups were conducted one and three months after injection using the Patient and Observer Scar Assessment Scale (POSAS
