Dental health promotion efforts given to preschools must be appropriate to the child's development and developing technology. Animated videos have positive values including motion pictures that will make children's attractiveness higher and can stimulate children's understanding of cognitive, affective, and psycho-motor. Animated videos also involve the senses of sight and sound that can spur children's memory. In addition, videos have many advantages, including increasing children's motivation, training children to focus, practicing perseverance and increasing children's confidence.</p> <p><strong>Material and Methods:</strong> This study used a quasi-experimental control group pretest and posttest design. The sampling technique was a purposive sampling of as many as 66 children, who were divided into 2 groups, the animated video education on brushing teeth was the intervention group and education with dental phantom dolls was in the control group. The data were tested using Wilcoxon analysis, namely pre-post design, while to compare the mean of the treatment and control groups, the Mann-Whitney test was used, this is because the data were not normally distributed.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> Animated video media and dental phantom dolls proved to be significantly (p&lt;0.001) effective in improving the teeth brushing skills of preschoolers.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> Animated video media and dental phantom dolls are equally effective in improving the teeth-brushing skills of preschoolers.</p> Tedi Purnama Bimo Gigih Sasongko Lia Permatasari Ngatemi Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal Of Drug Research And Dental Science 2022-10-31 2022-10-31 4 3 20 27 10.36437/ijdrd.2022.4.3.D Periodontal Stem Cells- The Regeneration Front http://ijdrd.com/index.php/ijdrd/article/view/140 <p>The ultimate goal of periodontal regeneration is to restore the damaged alveolar bone proper, root cementum, and periodontal ligament with collagen fibers inserted into the root surface. The search for new regenerative strategies is a challenging field of periodontal research, and tissue engineering, using stem cells, has recently been shown as a promising approach. Periodontal tissue stem cells, which play a crucial role in maintaining the homeostasis of periodontal tissues, are found in the periodontal ligament (PDL). These cells have long been referred to as mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs), and their clinical applications have been extensively studied. However, tissue stem cells in the PDL have not been thoroughly investigated, and they may be different from MSCs. Recent advances in stem cell biology, such as genetic lineage tracing, identification of label-retaining cells, and single-cell transcriptome analysis, have made it possible to analyze tissue stem cells in the PDL in vivo. In this review, we summarize recent findings on these stem cell populations in PDL and discuss future research directions toward developing periodontal regenerative therapy.</p> Vishnusripriya J Arjun M.

The radiographic examinations confirmed a remarkable radicular edification.</p> Luigi Tagliatesta Matteo Arcari Laura Porcheddu Rania Ibrahim Giulia Rovelli Marco Lorenzoni Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal Of Drug Research And Dental Science 2022-09-20 2022-09-20 4 3 1 6 10.36437/ijdrd.2022.4.3.A Keratocystic Odontogenic Tumor- A Rapidly Growing and Painless Tumor: A Case Report http://ijdrd.com/index.php/ijdrd/article/view/137 <p>The cyst known as a "odontogenic keratocyst" (OKC) has a dental origin and exhibits aggressive clinical characteristics, such as a high recurrence rate. After observing its biological behaviour and genetic anomalies such as&nbsp;neoplastic growth, keratocystic odontogenic tumour (KCOT) has been classified as a "tumour." In order to distinguish the lesion from the orthokeratinizing variety, which is currently known as an OKC,&nbsp;WHO&nbsp;working group recommended the term KCOT in 2005. This article emphasizes about the clinical features, radiological features as well as treatment methods of OKC.</p> Tanha Khan Shilpi Srivastava Kritika Mohan Arpan Manna Gaurav Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal Of Drug Research And Dental Science 2022-09-20 2022-09-20 4 3 7 12 10.36437/ijdrd.2022.4.3.B
