"Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research is at present a well-known Indian originated scientific journal which started with a humble beginning. I have been associated with this journal since many years. I appreciate the Editor, Dr. Hemant Jain, for his constant effort in bringing up this journal to the present status right from the scratch. The journal is multidisciplinary. It encourages in publishing the scientific articles from postgraduates and also the beginners who start their career. At the same time the journal also caters for the high quality articles from specialty and super-specialty researchers. Hence it provides a platform for the scientist and researchers to publish. The other aspect of it is, the readers get the information regarding the most recent developments in science which can be used for teaching, research, treating patients and to some extent take preventive measures against certain diseases. The journal is contributing immensely to the society at national and international level."

" Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research (JCDR) is a multi-specialty medical and dental journal publishing high quality research articles in almost all branches of medicine. The quality of printing of figures and tables is excellent and comparable to any International journal. An added advantage is nominal publication charges and monthly issue of the journal and more chances of an article being accepted for publication. Moreover being a multi-specialty journal an article concerning a particular specialty has a wider reach of readers of other related specialties also. As an author and reviewer for several years I find this Journal most suitable and highly recommend this Journal."

"It gives me great pleasure to be associated with JCDR, since last 2-3 years. Since then I have authored, co-authored and reviewed about 25 articles in JCDR. I thank JCDR for giving me an opportunity to improve my own skills as an author and a reviewer.
It 's a multispecialty journal, publishing high quality articles. It gives a platform to the authors to publish their research work which can be available for everyone across the globe to read. The best thing about JCDR is that the full articles of all medical specialties are available as pdf/html for reading free of cost or without institutional subscription, which is not there for other journals. For those who have problem in writing manuscript or do statistical work, JCDR comes for their rescue.
The journal has a monthly publication and the articles are published quite fast. In time compared to other journals. The on-line first publication is also a great advantage and facility to review one's own articles before going to print. The response to any query and permission if required, is quite fast; this is quite commendable. I have a very good experience about seeking quick permission for quoting a photograph (Fig.) from a JCDR article for my chapter authored in an E book. I never thought it would be so easy. No hassles.
Reviewing articles is no less a pain staking process and requires in depth perception, knowledge about the topic for review. It requires time and concentration, yet I enjoy doing it. The JCDR website especially for the reviewers is quite user friendly. My suggestions for improving the journal is, more strict review process, so that only high quality articles are published. I find a a good number of articles in Obst. Gynae, hence, a new journal for this specialty titled JCDR-OG can be started. May be a bimonthly or quarterly publication to begin with. Only selected articles should find a place in it.
An yearly reward for the best article authored can also incentivize the authors. Though the process of finding the best article will be not be very easy. I do not know how reviewing process can be improved. If an article is being reviewed by two reviewers, then opinion of one can be communicated to the other or the final opinion of the editor can be communicated to the reviewer if requested for. This will help one’s reviewing skills.
My best wishes to Dr. Hemant Jain and all the editorial staff of JCDR for their untiring efforts to bring out this journal. I strongly recommend medical fraternity to publish their valuable research work in this esteemed journal, JCDR".

"I wish to thank Dr. Hemant Jain, Editor-in-Chief Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research (JCDR), for asking me to write up few words.
Writing is the representation of language in a textual medium i e; into the words and sentences on paper. Quality medical manuscript writing in particular, demands not only a high-quality research, but also requires accurate and concise communication of findings and conclusions, with adherence to particular journal guidelines. In medical field whether working in teaching, private, or in corporate institution, everyone wants to excel in his / her own field and get recognised by making manuscripts publication.

Authors are the souls of any journal, and deserve much respect. To publish a journal manuscripts are needed from authors. Authors have a great responsibility for producing facts of their work in terms of number and results truthfully and an individual honesty is expected from authors in this regards. Both ways its true "No authors-No manuscripts-No journals" and "No journals–No manuscripts–No authors". Reviewing a manuscript is also a very responsible and important task of any peer-reviewed journal and to be taken seriously. It needs knowledge on the subject, sincerity, honesty and determination. Although the process of reviewing a manuscript is a time consuming task butit is expected to give one's best remarks within the time frame of the journal.
Salient features of the JCDR: It is a biomedical, multidisciplinary (including all medical and dental specialities), e-journal, with wide scope and extensive author support. At the same time, a free text of manuscript is available in HTML and PDF format. There is fast growing authorship and readership with JCDR as this can be judged by the number of articles published in it i e; in Feb 2007 of its first issue, it contained 5 articles only, and now in its recent volume published in April 2011, it contained 67 manuscripts. This e-journal is fulfilling the commitments and objectives sincerely, (as stated by Editor-in-chief in his preface to first edition) i e; to encourage physicians through the internet, especially from the developing countries who witness a spectrum of disease and acquire a wealth of knowledge to publish their experiences to benefit the medical community in patients care. I also feel that many of us have work of substance, newer ideas, adequate clinical materials but poor in medical writing and hesitation to submit the work and need help. JCDR provides authors help in this regards.
Timely publication of journal: Publication of manuscripts and bringing out the issue in time is one of the positive aspects of JCDR and is possible with strong support team in terms of peer reviewers, proof reading, language check, computer operators, etc. This is one of the great reasons for authors to submit their work with JCDR. Another best part of JCDR is "Online first Publications" facilities available for the authors. This facility not only provides the prompt publications of the manuscripts but at the same time also early availability of the manuscripts for the readers.
Indexation and online availability: Indexation transforms the journal in some sense from its local ownership to the worldwide professional community and to the public.JCDR is indexed with Embase & EMbiology, Google Scholar, Index Copernicus, Chemical Abstracts Service, Journal seek Database, Indian Science Abstracts, to name few of them. Manuscriptspublished in JCDR are available on major search engines ie; google, yahoo, msn.
In the era of fast growing newer technologies, and in computer and internet friendly environment the manuscripts preparation, submission, review, revision, etc and all can be done and checked with a click from all corer of the world, at any time. Of course there is always a scope for improvement in every field and none is perfect. To progress, one needs to identify the areas of one's weakness and to strengthen them.
It is well said that "happy beginning is half done" and it fits perfectly with JCDR. It has grown considerably and I feel it has already grown up from its infancy to adolescence, achieving the status of standard online e-journal form Indian continent since its inception in Feb 2007. This had been made possible due to the efforts and the hard work put in it. The way the JCDR is improving with every new volume, with good quality original manuscripts, makes it a quality journal for readers. I must thank and congratulate Dr Hemant Jain, Editor-in-Chief JCDR and his team for their sincere efforts, dedication, and determination for making JCDR a fast growing journal.
Every one of us: authors, reviewers, editors, and publisher are responsible for enhancing the stature of the journal. I wish for a great success for JCDR."

"On looking back through my Gmail archives after being requested by the journal to write a short editorial about my experiences of publishing with the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research (JCDR), I came across an e-mail from Dr. Hemant Jain, Editor, in March 2007, which introduced the new electronic journal. The main features of the journal which were outlined in the e-mail were extensive author support, cash rewards, the peer review process, and other salient features of the journal.
Over a span of over four years, we (I and my colleagues) have published around 25 articles in the journal. In this editorial, I plan to briefly discuss my experiences of publishing with JCDR and the strengths of the journal and to finally address the areas for improvement.
My experiences of publishing with JCDR: Overall, my experiences of publishing withJCDR have been positive. The best point about the journal is that it responds to queries from the author. This may seem to be simple and not too much to ask for, but unfortunately, many journals in the subcontinent and from many developing countries do not respond or they respond with a long delay to the queries from the authors 1. The reasons could be many, including lack of optimal secretarial and other support. Another problem with many journals is the slowness of the review process. Editorial processing and peer review can take anywhere between a year to two years with some journals. Also, some journals do not keep the contributors informed about the progress of the review process. Due to the long review process, the articles can lose their relevance and topicality. A major benefit with JCDR is the timeliness and promptness of its response. In Dr Jain's e-mail which was sent to me in 2007, before the introduction of the Pre-publishing system, he had stated that he had received my submission and that he would get back to me within seven days and he did!
Most of the manuscripts are published within 3 to 4 months of their submission if they are found to be suitable after the review process. JCDR is published bimonthly and the accepted articles were usually published in the next issue. Recently, due to the increased volume of the submissions, the review process has become slower and it ?? Section can take from 4 to 6 months for the articles to be reviewed. The journal has an extensive author support system and it has recently introduced a paid expedited review process. The journal also mentions the average time for processing the manuscript under different submission systems - regular submission and expedited review.
Strengths of the journal: The journal has an online first facility in which the accepted manuscripts may be published on the website before being included in a regular issue of the journal. This cuts down the time between their acceptance and the publication. The journal is indexed in many databases, though not in PubMed. The editorial board should now take steps to index the journal in PubMed. The journal has a system of notifying readers through e-mail when a new issue is released. Also, the articles are available in both the HTML and the PDF formats. I especially like the new and colorful page format of the journal. Also, the access statistics of the articles are available. The prepublication and the manuscript tracking system are also helpful for the authors.
Areas for improvement: In certain cases, I felt that the peer review process of the manuscripts was not up to international standards and that it should be strengthened. Also, the number of manuscripts in an issue is high and it may be difficult for readers to go through all of them. The journal can consider tightening of the peer review process and increasing the quality standards for the acceptance of the manuscripts. I faced occasional problems with the online manuscript submission (Pre-publishing) system, which have to be addressed.
Overall, the publishing process with JCDR has been smooth, quick and relatively hassle free and I can recommend other authors to consider the journal as an outlet for their work."

Recording an impression of a displacable or a fibrous ridge is extremely challenging for the clinician. This article presents a case report of a completely edentulous patient with bone loss and displaceable tissue in the region of the labial plate and the hard palate which were caused by cyst formation, in which a modified impression technique was used to record the maxillary basal seat area for the fabrication of a complete denture prosthesis


Fibrous maxillary ridge, Modified impression technique, Residual cyst, compromised hard palate, Complete denture

Radicular and residual cysts are the most common cystic lesions in the jaws. They occur as a result of fractured or decayed tooth, or on account of a disease of the bone. Initially, the bony enlargement is bony hard, but as the cyst increases in size, the covering bone becomes very thin despite subperiosteal bone deposition and then the swelling exhibits springiness. The cyst should be opened and the bony fragments and the diseased tissue should be removed along with the tooth (1). A displaceable or a fibrous ridge is a superficial area of mobile soft tissue which affects the maxillary and mandibular alveolar ridges. It develops when a hyper plastic soft tissue replaces the alveolar bone and it is a common finding in the anterior region of the maxillary denture bearing area (2). Generally, an impression technique, which is a combination of the mucostatic and muco-compressive techniques, is used for the displaceable anterior maxillary ridge, where the displaceable tissue is recorded in the unstrained position and the rest of the basal seat area is recorded under pressure. In this article, an impression technique has been described, which records the maxillary basal seat area with the displaceable hard palate, for the fabrication of a complete denture prosthesis.

Case Report

A 54-year old, completely edentulous, male patient reported to the Department of Prosthodontics, AB Shetty Memorial Institute of Dental Sciences, Mangalore, with the complaints of missing teeth and inability to eat. The patient’s history revealed that he had undergone an extraction in the region of the maxillary incisors 2 years back, but the region had not healed and it showed signs of purulent discharge. It was diagnosed as a residual cyst and the patient was advised cyst enucleation and a complete denture prosthesis. Following the cyst enucleation, a complete denture prosthesis was advocated for this patient. The intra-oral examination revealed completely edentulous maxillary and mandibular ridges. A window was seen in the region of the maxillary right central incisor (Table/Fig 1). There was bone loss in the region of the labial plate and the rugae area due to the cyst formation. The tissue in the above region was unsupported and displaceable. The displaceable tissue also extended along the lateral borders of the hard palate (Table/Fig 2). For the edentulous maxillary ridge, a 2 part impression technique and for the edentulous mandibular ridge, a conventional impression technique were planned. A preliminary impression was made by using an irreversible hydrocolloid impression material (Algitex; dental products of India, Mumbai). The extent of the displaceable tissue on the maxillary denture bearing area was outlined in the patient’s oral cavity by using an indelible pencil; this marking was recorded in the primary impression and it was transferred onto the primary cast. A maxillary custom tray of auto polymerizing acrylic resin (DPI-Self cure; dental products of India Ltd) with a spacer thickness of 3mm was fabricated. The marking was transferred onto the maxillary custom tray. The custom tray was perforated by creating a window within the marking. (Table/Fig 3). The border moulding of the maxillary tray was done by using a putty consistency silicone elastomer (Aquasil Soft Putty/Regular set, Dentsply, Dentray, Germany), followed by an impression of the non-displaceable tissues which was made by using a light body silicone elastomer (Aquasil Ultra LV, Dentsply, Dentray, Germany) (Table/Fig 4). The impression material in the region of the window was trimmed off. The impression was placed into position on the maxillary ridge. The impression of the displaceable tissues was made by using impression plaster (Dr. Balzer® Impression plaster). Initially, a thin mix of the impression plaster was painted on the displaceable tissues, followed by the application of a thicker mix (Table/Fig 5). A conventional secondary impression custom tray of auto polymerizing acrylic resin (DPI- Self cure; dental products of India Ltd) was fabricated for the lower edentulous ridge, which had a spacer thickness of 3mm. The border moulding was done with putty elastomer and the final impression was made with light body silicone elastomers (Aquasil, Dentsply, Dentray, Germany). The final impressions which were obtained were poured with dental stone (Kala stone; Kala Bhai Pvt Ltd, Mumbai, India) and the casts were retrieved (Table/Fig 6). The tentative jaw relation was recorded and a face bow transfer was done (Girrbach Dental GMBH, Germany). The casts were articulated on a non-arcon Artex articulator (Artex AR – Girrbach Dental GMBH, Germany). The teeth selection was done according to the dentogenic concept. A try-in of the waxed up complete denture was done. In the try-in stage, the occlusion, speech and the aesthetics were evaluated. A considerable amount of overjet and overbite was maintained to prevent the contact of the opposing anteriors (Table/Fig 7). The try-in was satisfactory. The denture was fabricated by using heat cure acrylic resin (DPI- Heat cure; dental products of India Ltd). The insertion of the complete denture prosthesis was done (Table/Fig 8). The post-insertion instructions were given. The patient was instructed to wear the prosthesis for 24 hours and he was recalled after 24 hours. The necessary corrections were made. The recall check-ups were scheduled after 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year. The patient was completely satisfied with the prosthesis.


The importance of the maxillofacial region in the early development, personality dynamics, and in the day-to-day interpersonal relationships were reviewed, together with the several specific problems which often accompany the changes in the structure or function of this region. The dentist must be concerned with the patient’s expectations, personality characteristics, and with his/her ability to accept and integrate the prosthesis. The dentist’s understanding and utilization of the psychological considerations of the patients should result in increased effectiveness in the treatment and rehabilitation of the patients (3). It was observed that the human food selection was dependent on a complex interaction of biological, environmental, cultural and behavioural influences (4). A review of the functional and the psychosocial outcomes of edentulousness which was treated with complete replacement dentures concluded that the loss of natural teeth had functional and psychosocial consequences that could be rectified with the use of complete replacement dentures. However, the outcome of complete denture therapy relies on the patient factors, as well as on the skills of the clinician and the laboratory technician who makes the dentures (5). Lytle demonstrated that excessive pressures from the denture bases, poor bases and poor occlusion or trauma can cause distortion of the mucoperiosteum. The soft tissues re-assume the normal shape when they are relieved of the trauma (6). The Muco-Compressive Technique was advocated by Green. In this technique, the impression should be recorded under an occlusal loading, which is comparable to the occlusal loading during its function. The main objective of this group of impression techniques has been to attain a better retention of the denture during its function (7). The mucostatic impression technique was advocated by Page. In this technique, the soft tissue should be registered in an unstrained rest position; any other position will compel the tissue to try to regain its position. This leads to dislodgement of the denture (7). A variety of impression techniques have been suggested to circumvent the difficulty of making a denture on a flabby tissue. It has been stated that while the flabby ridge may provide a poor retention, it is better than having no ridge, as it could occur as a result of surgical excision (8). The presence of displaceable tissue in the maxillary denture bearing area can lead to the use of an altered impression technique for the maxilla. A two part impression technique i.e., a mucostatic and a mucodisplacive combination was utilized for this patient. This technique was first described by Osborne in 1964 to be used in the mandible (8). The masticatory forces can displace the mobile denture bearing tissue, leading to an altered denture positioning and loss of the peripheral seal. The resulting stability of the denture becomes poor and both the function and the aesthetics will be compromised (2). In our case, the anterior teeth were kept out of occlusion to reduce the load on the displaceable tissues. This can increase the stability of the denture and it can also help in bone deposition at the resected site.


The denture prosthesis should fulfill its basic objectives of the restorations of function, aesthetics and speech. It should also help in the maintenance of the health of the oral tissues. Nutrition is one of the main factors that determines the success or failure of the prosthetic appliance in the mouth of aging people. Displaceable tissues pose a prosthodontic challenge in the achievement of a stable and a retentive dental prosthesis. When conventional prosthodontics is considered, there are a variety of impression techniques which can record the unsupported tissue for the denture construction. The considerations for the selection should include the location and the extent of the unsupported tissue, as well as the patient’s chief complaints.
