Frequency, Prevalence, Demographic Features, And Histological Subtypes of The Most Common Malignant Salivary Glands Tumours (MECs) in Tripoli Medical Center: A 14 Years Retrospective Study

Objective: The main purpose of this retrospective study was to survey SGTs, report their frequency and the prevalence, demographic features, and histological subtypes of MEC. Methods: These series retrieved from oral biopsy files of Tripoli Medical Centre (TMC) over a 14-year period. Results: One hundred ninety-seven tumours were found, 152 benign (77.8%) and 45tumours (22%) lesions, were malignant. Pleomorphic adenoma (PA), adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) and MEC were the most encountered benign and malignant tumours (129 cases, 66.8%), (23 cases, 11.6%) and (14 cases, 7.3%) respectively. Of the 45 malignant tumours, MEC (14 of 45), was the second most common neoplasm. Most MECs (7 of 14) were high-grade lesions. One central MEC occurred in the alveolar ridge of the mandible. Conclusions: Benign SGTs were much more frequent than malignant SGTs. MEC was the second commonest malignant variety. The parotid gland was the frequently affected site for MECs. High grade MEC constituted large group of different grades of this neoplasm.

Perspective and practice of root caries management: a multicountry study – Part I

Every effort needs to be made to better understand the current state of practice and trends relating to root caries management which will be of benefit to dentists universally in the practice of dentistry. Aim: This article presents a multicountry questionnaire survey of the current state of practice in the management of root caries among dentists in nine different countries to get a wider range of opinions and perspectives. Methodology: A questionnaire related to root surface caries was distributed among practicing dentists in nine different countries, namely the United Kingdom, Libya, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Brazil, India, Malaysia, and Iraq. Questionnaire responses were analyzed, and the results were compared among groups. Results: The results showed statistically significant differences among dentists in most questionnaire aspects. Bleeding is the greatest obstacle facing dentists when restoring root surface lesions. Reported survival rates reflect uncertainty about the material and/or approach of choice in the management of root surface caries. Conclusion: This questionnaire survey revealed the current status of management of root surface caries in clinical practice in various countries. Substantial attention is required to bridge the knowledge gap and address the current void of uncertainty as relates to root caries management by providing a common ground for communication between dentists from all around the globe. In all, this work found a degree of consensus at the international level on what appears to work well among the dental practices surveyed and identified several issues with existing approaches that need to be addressed in future studies.

All -ceramic restorations are nowadays widely accepted in the anterior and posterior regions. The geometry of tooth preparation has been the subject of many debates without clear evidence that one type of finish line provides consistently superior marginal fit. Therefore, the main interest of the present research was directed toward the influence of margin configuration on marginal adaptation of all ceramic crowns. Articles were selected on the basis of they had sufficient information related to types of the finish line and related factors effect on marginal adaptation of all ceramic crowns. The results of this study revealed that the best finish line chose for all ceramic restorations still remains a difficult goal to be achieved. arabic 14 English 84
