This manuscript explores the application of complementary medical care in managing anxiety across these periods. Antepartum anxiety, influenced by concerns about the baby's health and childbirth, can be mitigated through mindfulness, yoga, acupuncture, massage therapy, and herbal remedies. During labor, intrapartum anxiety, driven by fear of pain and uncertainty, can be alleviated with hypnobirthing, water birth, doula support, aromatherapy, and music therapy. Postpartum anxiety, resulting from the demands of newborn care and hormonal shifts, benefits from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), peer support groups, exercise, nutritional support, and sleep hygiene. Integrating complementary therapies with conventional healthcare involves a collaborative approach, education and training for healthcare providers, patient-centered care, and ongoing research to ensure safety and efficacy. This holistic approach can enhance the well-being of mothers and their babies, providing a comprehensive strategy for managing anxiety during pregnancy and childbirth. By adopting these integrative practices, healthcare providers can offer improved support and outcomes for expectant and new mothers, fostering healthier families.</p> K. Kasthuri Priya, K.

This serious infection is caused by a group of molds found in our environment called mucormycetes. Those with reduced ability to fight infections are most at risk including those with uncontrolled diabetes and malignancies. Historically, this fungal infection was rare, however, in recent years the prevalence has increased and the need for further discussion is warranted. The prevalence of Mucormycosis is significantly higher in India compared to other countries. In the wake of COVID-19, an increased number of cases have been reported in India, bringing additional attention to this deadly disease. Mucormycosis is categorized by the area of infection and includes five major clinical forms; pulmonary, disseminated, rhinocerebral, cutaneous, and gastrointestinal. Due to a high mortality rate, aggressive treatment is recommended to improve patient outcomes. Early diagnosis along with combination treatment is vital for patient survival. This paper intends to provide a brief overview and discussion of recent advances. The main aim and purpose of this review is to increase awareness and understanding of this disease to improve early diagnosis and outcomes.</p> Ashok Badhe, Avinash Sagvekar Copyright (c) 2024 International Journal Of Drug Research And Dental Science https://ijdrd.com/index.php/ijdrd/article/view/181 Thu, 18 Jul 2024 00:08:11 -0400 Esthetic Correction A Fluorosis Stained Teeth Using Full Mouth Rehabilitation: A Case Report https://ijdrd.com/index.php/ijdrd/article/view/183 <p>Dental fluorosis is characterized by the reduced mineralization of enamel due to the excessive intake of fluoride (over 1 ppm) during the formation of teeth. Advanced dental fluorosis results in the enamel showing signs of pitting or mottling, which heightens the risk of pollution, fractures, wear, and premature loss of teeth. This can negatively impact the stability of the bite and the overall function of chewing. Apart from impacting oral health, severe dental fluorosis can lead to psychological consequences resulting from the visible disfigurement and staining of affected teeth, along with compromised functionality. In numerous instances of severe dental fluorosis, complete mouth rehabilitation is not just a treatment but a crucial pre-emptive measure, aiming to restore functionality and prevent further deterioration.</p> <p>This case study outlines the complete mouth rehabilitation of a 20-year-old female patient who presented with discoloured teeth and chipping of the upper layer along with multiple carious lesions. The rehabilitation procedure employed the Panky Mann Schyuler (PMS) technique.</p> Tooba Qazi, Shua, Sabzar Abdullah, Abhinav Gupta, Ummul Wara Copyright (c) 2024 International Journal Of Drug Research And Dental Science https://ijdrd.com/index.php/ijdrd/article/view/183 Thu, 18 Jul 2024 00:19:37 -0400
