7 Studies have also demonstrated that balanced occlusion existing at denture delivery is often lost due to frequent post insertion adjustments, cold flow of acrylic and compression of mucoperiosteum
under masticatory loads without patients complaining about it.
Gingivitis refers to inflammatory, erosive and ulcerative conditions which are confined to the mucoperiosteum
covering the alveolar processes.
Flaps of mucoperiosteum
were raised from hard palate on both sides of cleft.
The island (tadpole) flap of the palatal mucoperiosteum
based on an intact and fully mobilised vascular pedicle is an effective and versatile technique for a single stage, two layered repair of palatal fistulae.
Enucleation is complete excision of lesion and marsupialization, or Partsch's technique, consist of removing a window from the lesion and suturing the surrounding mucoperiosteum
to the margins of the cyst wall.
Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) is an inflammation of the mucoperiosteum
of middle ear cleft which is associated with recurrent ear discharge through tympanic membrane perforation and deafness (1).
Delayed eruption of permanent maxillary incisors has numerous causes such as supernumerary teeth, tooth malformation or dilacerations, tooth agenesis, cysts or other pathological obstructions in the eruptive path, retained primary incisor that has become ankylosed, presence of a dense mucoperiosteum
or submucosa that acts as a physical barrier to eruption, lack of space or in association with certain syndromes.
Even minor trauma may injure the nasal septum, which can lead to the development of a nasal septal hematoma or nasal septal abscess, defined as a collection of pus between the cartilaginous or bony nasal septum and its normally coapted mucoperichondrium or mucoperiosteum
Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media (CSOM) is defined as a chronic inflammation of the Mucoperiosteum
of the middle ear cleft presenting with recurrent discharge from the ears in the presence of tympanic membrane perforation.
17,18 Shevel et al18 found that when a small incision with minimal reflection of the mucoperiosteum
was made, postoperative maximum mouth opening were significantly more than when a larger incision with a standard flap was used.
was elevated from hard palate to create two sliding flaps.
Retaining teeth permit the stresses of occlusion to be borne partially by the teeth, thus reducing the abuse, which the alveolar process and the mucoperiosteum
undergo when dentures are worn.
