HUMAN TONGUE PRINT ANALYSIS FOR BIOMETRIC AUTHENTICATION - A REVIEWAuthor Name: Santhu Sadasivan, Niveditha Baiju, Athira C P Litu Mary Thampy, Varsha C Vijay, Vismaya V
Abstract: Tongue is a vital organ which is well protected from the external environment and enclosed in the oral cavity. Biometrics refers to a real-time identification system that is used in the identification of a person. In recent years the necessity for security has propelled the research in the field of biometrics. In biometric authentication, the input image is compared against a sample template to identify the person. This review discuss about the uniqueness of tongue prints, its advantages and various tongue print biometric systems.
Keywords: Tongue-print, biometric, tongue recognition, biometrics authentication system
TRAUMEEL - AN EMERGING OPTION TO NONSTEROIDAL ANTI- INFLAMMATORY DRUGS IN THE MANAGEMENT OF PAIN AFTER PERIODONTAL FLAP SURGERY - A REVIEWAuthor Name: Revu Das S D, Jeevanand Deshmukh Asif K, Sindhura H
- Pain management after performing periodontal flap surgery is of paramount importance. There is a new topic to examine while considering the negative effects of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines (NSAIDs) and the benefits of homoeopathic therapy. Traumeel is a homoeopathic complex medicine with natural ingredients that is used to treat inflammation, trauma, and degenerative diseases. Traumeel has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties in clinical studies as well as in vivo tests with models such maxillofacial inflammations, periodontitis, and pain syndrome following dental canal filling. The level of patient acceptability is likewise extremely high. To achieve the intended effect, the rule of thumb for analgesic therapy is to utilise the lowest dose with the fewest side effects. This is a comprehensive review about traumeel & its emerging role in Dentistry.

ROOT BIOMODIFICATION IN PERIODONTAL THERAPY - A REVIEWAuthor Name: Shahna N, Suresh D K, Deepak Thomas Ajesh Joseph, Ahila D
Abstract: Periodontitis is a multifactorial chronic immune- inflammatory disease characterized by destruction of tooth supporting structures. Repair of the periodontium and the regeneration of periodontal tissues remains a major goal in the treatment of periodontal disease. The periodontal therapy helps in the restoration of the lost periodontium. Root biomodification forms an essential step in periodontal therapy to get rid of the smear layer on the root surface which would facilitate new attachment. In this review article we would like to give emphasis on the different means and agents which are routinely used for root biomodification, smear layer.
Keywords: Root biomodification, Periodontitis, smear layer.
A CASE REPORT ON NON-SURGICAL MANAGEMENT OF VERTICAL MAXILLARY EXCESSAuthor Name: A A Mohammed Ameen, Binitta Paul K
Abstract: An aesthetic smile is produced by the interplay of three components namely lips, gingiva and teeth. The various etiological factors that can be attributed to gummy smile include vertical maxillary excess, altered passive eruption of anterosuperior teeth, upper dentoalveolar protrusion, extrusion and hyperactivity of upper lip levator muscles. This case report depicts the successful non-surgical orthodontic management of a 19 year old female patient diagnosed as Angle’s Class I malocclusion with vertical maxillary excess, mild upper and lower anterior crowding with congenitally missing 33 and a mildly convex soft tissue profile.

MANAGEMENT OF DENTIGEROUS CYST BY CONSERVATIVE SURGICAL APPROACH: A CASE REPORTAuthor Name: Meera Rose Cherian , Rajesh Pillai , Sinju Paul
Abstract: Dentigerous cysts are commonly occurring cysts associated with an impacted tooth. It is usually formed by the fluid accumulation between the reduced enamel epithelium and the enamel surface of a developed tooth. This case report depicts the successful dental management of a 37 year old male patient who presented with dentigerous cyst associated with an impacted maxillary lateral incisor.
Keywords: dentigerous cyst, endodontics, enucleation, impacted
NEUTRAL ZONE CONCEPT –AN AID IN MANAGEMENT OF A PATIENT WITH ATROPHIC EDENTULOUS MANDIBULAR RIDGE- A CASE REPORTAuthor Name: Fathima Seethi, Anis Ahmed
Abstract: Complete denture prosthodontics consistently aims at providing comfort, function, esthetics, and the maintenance of patient’s health to ultimately improve the quality of patient’s life. Elderly patients, especially those who are long-time complete denture wearers have advanced atrophy of ridge and musculature of the cheeks and lips. Neutral zone technique is a functional approach to overcome the problem of instability of lower dentures caused in patients by a more potential
musculature or in patient who have dimensional or altered neuromuscular control. This article presents a case report of fabrication of complete denture in atrophic mandibular ridge using the neutral zone concept.
