Abstract

Introduction: In dental curriculum, assessment of student aims to ensure that they have acquired the necessary knowledge, clinical skills and problem solving abilities. Assessment does not only tests the student’s ability, it also indicates the effectiveness and appropriateness of teaching. Aim of the study: To evaluate students’ performance in oral surgery clinic from patients’ and students’ perspectives. Material and Methods: A cross-sectional study was employed including 5th class dental students in College of Dentistry, Mustansiriyah University. 50 out of 102 students were included for this study. Each student performed a single tooth extraction procedure. Before dental extraction a proper case sheet was filled with proper case history evaluation by one of the clinical supervisors. Each student was provided with student’s form and patient’s form. Student and patient were asked to answer the forms separately. The form consisted from 3 visual analogue scales (VAS) assessing the level of pain/ satisfaction toward the procedure for both patients and students. Statistical tests were done using IBM SPSS Statistics Ver. 20. The level of significance was measured at P value <0.05. Results: The number of included students was 50 students, and 50 patients 37 were males and 13 were females. High success of local anaesthesia as well as (minimum or no pain) level were reported in the majority of the cases. The overall agreement between patients’ and students’ perception toward the success of local anaesthesia was statistically significant p<0.05 (Pearson test). More than 70% of both patients and students found that the extraction process was easy. Pearson test showed highly significant relationship between students’ and patients’ evaluation of dental extraction procedure. Mann whitney U showed no significant difference between patients’ satisfaction and students’ satisfaction toward the success of overall management. Conclusion: High level of patients’ satisfaction and the agreement between patients and students evaluation toward the steps of dental extraction procedure in the selected sample group indicates high level of students’ performance.

After surgical removal of odontoma, the impacted canine was transplanted successfully into the correct position of the jaw. The success of auto-transplantation depends on several factors: such as patient age, developmental stage of the transplanted tooth, type of tooth transplanted, surgical technique employed, and duration of time that the tooth being out of its socket.

Abstract

Background: The aimof the study wasto evaluate the changes in the mandibular dental arch width and length after the unilateral premature loss of deciduous molars at the mixed dentition stage. Methods: The sample consist of (50) Iraqi children aged (8-9) years with unilateral prematurely extracted mandibular first or second deciduous molars, each child have a dental study models prepared by taking alginate hydrocolloid impressions,then the measurement were done on the Auto sketch program after scanning of the occlusal surface of the study casts. Results: reveals that in case of unilateral premature Loss of mandibularprimary molars at the mixed dentition stage lead to changes in most of the vertical and horizontal distances of the dental arch. Conclusion: the findings of the present study indicate us the importance of space maintainer construction following the premature loss of mandibular primarymolars at the mixed dentition stage.

Abstract

Introduction: The role of the lower third molars in the lower incisors crowding has been debated for more than a century. Significant disagreement exists among practitioners, including both orthodontists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons whether the third molar causes mandibular anterior crowding. Aim of study: The purpose of this study is to ascertain whether the lower third molars can contribute to the occurrence or aggravation of crowding. Materials and methods: A sample of 131voluneteer (67 males and 64 females) aged 18-25 years were included in the 1st ,2nd, ,3rd ,4th and 5th stage of college of dentistry /Tikrit University was chosen, the sample was divided into three main groups consisted subjects who had mandibular third molars that were either impacted, erupted into function or agenesis. Results: The study showed that 70(53.4%) volunteer s out of the 131 have impacted lower 3rd molar, 52(39.7%) volunteers have erupted lower 3rd molar, while 9(7.6%) volunteer have agenesis of the 3rd molar. Conclusion: The crowded group revealed a higher percentage of impacted third molar while lowest percentage of third molar agenesis.
