Assessment of puberty growth spurt in boys and girls--a dental radiographic method.
S Gupta, MK Chada, A Sharma
March 1996, 14(1):4-9
The first radiographic appearance of adductor sesamoid bone of thumb is considered reliable and is the most commonly used indicator of puberty growth spurt. The purpose of this study was to find out whether the tooth mineralization stage/stages were as reliable an indicator of puberty growth spurt as the adductor sesamoid bone. Puberty assessment has its necessary application in diagnosis, treatment planning of various malocclusions and in medico legal cases. The results indicated that a close relationship existed between tooth mineralization Stage G and appearance of the sesamoid bone. Hence it can be used in dentistry as an indicator for onset of puberty growth spurt via periapical or panoramic radiographs. The result of this study were not applicable to boys as the apical closure of these teeth had already occurred at the time of early radiographic appearance of the adductor sesamoid bone.

Management of natal/neonatal/early infancy teeth.
HS Chawla
March 1996, 14(1):33-6
The natal, neonatal and early infancy teeth predominantly being of the normal series of primary dentition, the management should aim at preservation of these teeth for esthetics and maintenance of space for eruption of permanent successor. The treatment method should take into consideration (a) trauma to child's oral tissue or mother's breast (b) mobility and (c) danger of inhalation. Trauma was noted in 10 percent, mobility and danger of inhalation in 94 percent. Extraction carried out in 97 percent of 50 children with natal/neonatal/early infancy teeth showed that the neighbouring primary teeth tended to move into the extraction space. Eruption of the permanent successors to natal/neonatal teeth was not delayed, rather in some instances the eruption was found to be enhanced as compared to contralateral incisor as noted in unilaterally occurring natal/neonatal teeth. The mandibular anterior arch collapse was not permanent as the successors erupted uncrowded. The paper discusses the method and timing of extraction. From the immunological and hematological point of view the best time for extraction was calculated to be 7-25 days of birth.

Prevalence and severity of dental caries and oral hygiene status in rural and urban areas of Calcutta.
S Subrata
March 1996, 14(1):17-20
A study was carried out in urban Calcutta and rural Belur (outskirts of Calcutta) amongst 9600 children in the age group of 6 to 14 years. It was seen that the prevalence and severity of dental caries was higher among children in urban areas whereas the oral hygiene levels were poorer among children in rural areas. It was also observed that rate of dental caries increased with age. Organised efforts are a must to prevent and control dental caries before it takes its toll with disastrous results.

Oratest :--a simple, chair-side caries activity test.
A Patalay, C Shubhada, SL Nadiger
March 1996, 14(1):6-9
Caries activity tests are an essential part of any programme concerned with the study or treatment of dental caries. Most of the caries activity tests require expensive kits or specially prepared media or facilities for incubation which limits their use in clinical practice. The present study sample consisted of twenty five children with dental caries and twenty five controls, free of caries, gingivitis and other oral ailments. The test is simple and consists of rinsing the mouth with 10 ml of sterile milk, 3 ml of which is mixed with 0.12 ml of 0.1% methylene blue dye and observed for colour change. The present study demonstrated the potential uses of this test in a pediatric dental clinic setup.

Placental transfer of fluoride in pregnant women consuming optimum fluoride in drinking water.
A Malhotra, A Tewari, HS Chawla, K Gauba, K Dhall
March 1996, 14(1):1-3
The study was conducted on 25 healthy women residing in optimum fluoride areas, who were to deliver normally through vaginal route, to correlate the maternal and cord plasma fluoride levels and evaluate the placental transfer of fluoride. A wide variation was found in the maternal and cord plasma fluoride levels. In only 8 percent of the cases the fluoride levels in cord plasma were higher than maternal plasma. It was deduced that the placenta allows passive diffusion of fluoride from mother to foetus and does not act as a barrier.

Antimicrobial efficacy of iodoformized zinc oxide-eugenol sealer on micro-organisms of root canal.
V Saggar, S Chandra, JN Jaiswal, M Singh
March 1996, 14(1):1-3
Iodoformized zinc oxide-eugenol was tested for its antibacterial effect against the aerobic and anaerobic bacteria obtained from the root canals of deciduous teeth; the bacteria were staph aureus, strep viridans, strep faecalis, bacteroides melaninogenicus and also mixed culture obtained from infected non-vital anterior teeth. The sensitivity was checked on BHI- agar plates employing well-method. Iodoformized zinc oxide eugenol paste was found to be effective for both the aerobic and anaerobic bacteria of the root canals of deciduous teeth with maximum sustaining period of 10 days; staphylococcus aureus was found to be the most susceptible, while Streptococcus faecalis the most resistant.

Use of sedation analgesia for pediatric dentistry.
RK Sharma, RR Pinto, NN Mirchandani
March 1996, 14(1):28-32
26 healthy children between the ages of 36 and 60 months (mean 35 months) who satisfied the selection criteria during a screening visit participated in this double blind study. The subjects were assigned randomly to receive either 75 mg/kg Triclofos elixir (Regimen I-21 children) or 50 mg/1kg Trichlofos elixir combined with 1 mg/kg promethazine elixir (Regimen II-22 children). All medications were given orally 45 minutes before treatment. During operative procedures all subjects received nitrous oxide/oxygen at a concentration of 35%. All the patients were restrained in a papoose board (Indigenous). The subjects were monitored for vital signs and evaluated for sedation and sleep, movement, crying and overall behaviour before, during and after the operative procedure. Regimen II was found to be superior to Regimen I with regard to behaviour management of difficult young children. However extremely apprehensive children were not good subjects for this sedation technique.

Interrelationship between sugar and dental caries--a study in child population of Orissa.
PK Sahoo, A Tewari, HS Chawla, V Sachdev
March 1996, 14(1):37-44
An epidemiological study on interrelationship between dental caries and sugar consumption conducted on 1265 children in the age of 5-15 years revealed a positive association of dental caries experience with total sugar exposures, between meal sugar exposures and at meal sugar exposures. As the total increased from 3 to 4 in a day, a corresponding jump of 1 deft+DMFT and 2 defs+DMFS was noted, which was clinically and statistically significant. It was deduced that total sugar exposures per day should be limited to 3, out of which two should be at meal time and one between meals.

Role of trace elements Se and Li in drinking water on dental caries experience.
K Gauba, A Tewari, HS Chawla
March 1996, 14(1):15-9
An epidemiological survey of dental caries using modified Moller's index (1966) carried out in 483 children (aged 7-17 years) of rural areas--Talwandi Kalan, Dhanansu and Bhatian (District Ludhiana) of Punjab with almost similar F levels in their drinking water supply, similar socio-economic status, environmental factors/demographic parameters and dietary habits revealed wide variations in the prevalence and severity of dental caries. Further investigation extended to evaluate the concentrations of various trace elements Se, Li, Zn, Cu, Fe and Mn in drinking water to find out the disparity of dental caries status, revealed that the higher figures of prevalence and severity of dental caries observed in Dhanansu and Bhatian as compared to Talwandi Kalan could be attributed to the presence of Se in drinking water supply of these areas which was not detectable in the water supply of Talwandi Kalan. On the contrary, the concentration of Li in water supply of Talwandi Kalan with low caries was found to be higher compared to that of Dhanansu and Bhatian with higher dental caries in children population.

Idiopathic gingival fibromatosis associated with mild hypertrichosis.
JP Bhavsar, SG Damle, AP Bhatt
March 1996, 14(1):31-3
A case of gingival fibromatosis with hypertrichosis is reported in a 10 year old girl. The condition is a syndrome and presents as a triad of gingival fibromatosis, hypertrichosis and mental retardation. Following surgical management, no recurrence was seen in the immediate post-surgical period. Even if recurrence occurs excision is recommended as the psychological benefits resulting from cosmetic improvement outweigh the danger of recurrence.

Apexification : follow-up after 6-12 years.
HS Chawla
March 1996, 14(1):38-40
Thirty 'apexified' immature permanent anterior teeth treated utilising Ca(OH)2 as root canal dressing assessed clinically and radiographically after greater than 6 less than or equal to 12 years revealed that in 15 teeth bridge remained the same; in 10 consolidated, while in 3 it decreased. Periapical radiolucency reappeared in one case, while in two it was questionable but clinically the teeth were comfortable; these cases were ones showing decrease in bridge consolidation: two teeth had been extracted during this observation period by some dentists because of complaint of discolouration.

Infant palatal obturator.
S Nagda, DS Deshpande, SW Mhatre
March 1996, 14(1):24-5
The occurrence of a congenital cleft palate greatly impedes the habituation of efficient deglutition of an infant, causing aspiration of fluids in the air passage which may lead to complications like bronchopneumonia and infection of the airway and lungs. Inadequate nourishment due to difficulty in feeding affects the health and acts as a stumbling block in the milestones of normal development. Severe nutritional deficiencies further complicate surgical closure at the right time. A palatal obturator given to the infant effectively separates the oral cavity from the nasal cavity and is of great help in feeding till the defect can be surgically repaired.

A Tewari, HS Chawla, A Utreja
March 1996, 14(1):28-35
The study was conducted on 1251 6-12-year-old children, to evaluate the effect of topical application of NaF, APF and Duraphat given at six monthly interval assessed after 2.1/2 years revealed the percentage caries reduction with sodium fluoride to be in the range of 20-24 percent on base line teeth and 30-33 percent on teeth erupted during study, showing more effect on newly erupted teeth. In APF group, the caries reduction was 32-37 percent, in the DMFT and DMFS-slightly more on teeth erupted during study than on baseline teeth. The dental caries reduction with Duraphat (NaF varnish) was in the range of 70-75 percent-slightly more on newly erupted teeth. Equally high degree of efficacy was also noted on occlusal surfaces. Duraphat showed the greatest public health potential.

JP Bhavsar, SG Damle
March 1996, 14(1):1-3
The present study was carried out to assess the oral health status of children suffering from different handicapping conditions studying in various schools of Bombay. A total of 593 handicapped children in the age group of 12-14 years were included in the study. The prevalence and severity of dental caries was found to be highest in the cerebral palsy group and lowest in the blind group. In general, in all the groups the decayed (D) component took predominance over the missing (M) and filled (F) components. Periodontal status was assessed using the CPITN and it was found that the bleeding & calculus components were higher than the healthy components in all the groups and almost all the children required treatment in the form of deep scaling and/or prophylaxis and oral hygiene instructions. The study confirmed the need of curative and preventive services towards these neglected children of the society.

Evaluation of KAP of oral hygiene measures following oral health education through existing health and educational infrastructure.
A Tewari, K Gauba, A Goyal
March 1996, 14(1):7-17
This study is a part of a larger preventive oral health feasibility module embarked on a population of 120,000 of Raipurrani, district Ambala (Haryana). The KAP analysis of about 2000 individuals (including school children) on cross-sectional basis at baseline, one and two years after the implementation of knowledge about oral health measures to the community utilizing the existing health infrastructure at CHC, the Anganwadi workers (ICDS Scheme) and through school teachers in the schools revealed that at baseline datun was the most prevalent (63%) oral hygiene measure used in the community and students. After implementation, the practice of brushing thrice, twice and once daily increased but the most prevalent frequency remained once a day (39% out of 66 percent using brush in community and 37% out of 76 percent in students after 2 and 11/2 years of implementation respectively) followed by twice a day (23 & 31% respectively). A similar pattern of frequency was observed about datun users also, though the number using datun substantially declined from 62% to 33% in community and 63 to 23% in students after implementation.

In vitro evaluation of NaF and APF-gel application on surface microhardness of enamel in children of low, optimum and high fluoride areas.
VV Reddy, KR Indushekar
March 1996, 14(1):1-6
An in vitro study was conducted on 78 sound human pre-molars collected from low (0.24 ppmF), optimum (0.7 ppmF) and known endemic fluoride areas (> 1.5 ppmF), to study the effects of topical application of sodium fluoride and APF-gel on surface microhardness of enamel of these three areas using Vickers microhardness measurements before and after application of topical fluorides at time intervals of 1/2 an hour, 6 hours and 24 hours. It was found that both the topical fluorides increased the surface microhardness of enamel in the three areas; the maximum increase in surface microhardness was observed in fluorosed teeth. APF-gel was found to be more effective than sodium fluoride.

Taurodontism and pyramidal molars.
PB Sood, M Sood
March 1996, 14(1):25-7
The present study was conducted to investigate the occurrence of taurodontism and pyramidal molars in Goa children, hitherto considered rare in Indians. Radiographs of 300 children of 9 to 13 years were evaluated. The criteria of Keene (1966) was used to designate taurodonts. Ten children showed taurodontism: involving mandibular second molars in eight cases, maxillary first molars in three cases; and pyramidal molars in three cases, four cases showed associated findings. Hypodontia of one to fourteen teeth was observed in all four cases. In addition one case showed thinning of maxillary central incisors, rotation of lateral incisors, impacted supernumerary and a canine and polydactyly of hands and feet. The condition does not appear rare in this population group.

March 1996, 14(1):21-30
The KAP survey on oral health practices of 3247 individuals, 6-60 years of age, of Sidhaura block of Haryana revealed that use of dattan was more prevalent (56% in adult community & 49% students) than tooth brush (35% adult community & 34% students). 37% of the total community had the knowledge of brush being the best oral hygiene measure. 25% of the community using brush were brushing only once/day. The knowledge of the community regarding the role of fluorides in prevention of dental caries was completely lacking: 1.8% of the community was using fluoride dentifrice. 35-45 percent of the community were practising sweet foods/drinks etc. four times a day. The snyder test showed a positive relation with frequency of sugar intake.

HS Chawla
March 1996, 14(1):17-20
The study carried out on 30 teeth in 28 patients of 12-16 years to assess NaF iontophoresis as an alternative to cavity lining revealed that out of 25 cavities which were sensitive to air, water jet and exploration (14 mild, 9 moderate and 2 severe), in 20 cavities the sensitivity decreased to nil, in 9 to mild and in one to moderate following iontophoresis. It was found that in all the cases, the first application of iontophoresis decreased the sensitivity by 50-60 percent and the second by 70-90 percent. Immediately after silver filling there was no sensitivity in 25 teeth, whereas 4 were mildly and one moderately sensitive. After a six month follow up in 24 patients who reported, all the teeth were comfortable.

S Chopra, JR Taneja, J Rai
March 1996, 14(1):17-20
Forty-five children in the age group of 2-12 years comprising 20 well-nourished (W.N.), 20 malnourished (M.N.) (both groups having DMFS of > or = 5) and 5 caries free well nourished children (control group) were studied to find out the oral microflora in these groups S. mutans was present in 55%, 20% and 0% in W.N., M.N., and control groups while S. Salivarius was isolated in 45%, 80% and 40% in the three groups respectively. There was no significant difference in the prevalence of Lactobacillus and C. albicans in the three groups. The correlation between means DMFS and the prevalence of S. mutans in W.N. and M.N. groups was highly significant (P < 0.001). Nutritional status including different grades of malnutrition had no significant bearing on the prevalence of micro-organisms isolated. The caries prevalence was higher in the W.N. group (P) while the gingival index was higher in M.N. group.

Mutans streptococci -dental, oral and global aspects.
D Bratthall
March 1996, 14(1):4-12
The evaluation of the levels of mutans streptococci have been used for many years in some countries, in clinical work to monitor patients during treatment of dental caries, based on the observations that teeth, and patients, with elevated levels of mutans streptococci are at higher risk for caries. Other studies have focussed on attempts to select high caries risk groups based on salivary levels. Several methods to estimate the bacteria have been developed, among them being the "Spatula method" and the more recent "Strip mutans" method. Both methods are based on observations made in studies aimed at determining factors of importance for the transfer of these bacteria between persons. This paper gives a background to saliva sampling for mutans streptococci and describes some studies that have evaluated the role of these bacteria for caries. Such background information is important for the correct use of bacterial tests in the clinic and for interpretation of the results.

Evaluation of the cariogenicity of sugar containing drinks by estimating changes in pH of human dental plaque and saliva.
G Lehl, JR Taneja, SL Chopra
March 1996, 14(1):9-14
Cariogenicity of five commonly consumed carbonated beverage and sugar containing drinks (Frooti, sugarcane juice, Limca, Thumps up and Big Sipp) was evaluated by estimating changes in pH of human dental plaque and saliva in 2 groups of subjects (20 each) differing in caries experience (Group A DMFT zero; Group B DMFT 3-5). In group A subjects, pH of plaque did not fall to levels near critical pH (5.5) with any of the test drinks or control. However, in group B children the salivary pH did fall below critical levels in the case of Frooti while salivary pH fell below critical pH with Frooti and Thums up.

Oral mucosal lesions in patients with acute leukemias and related disorders due to cytotoxic therapy.
AM Baliga, VR Brave, HA Vyas
March 1996, 14(1):25-9
Forty-seven children afflicted with acute leukemia were studied at the Tata Memorial Hospital Bombay to record the occurrence of oral manifestations prior to and during chemotherapy. Lymphadenopathy was the most frequent single finding suggestive of leukemia during head and neck examination. Gingival abnormalities, bleeding gums and oral mucosal pallor were the other findings on initial oral examination. Due to immunosuppression caused by the chemotherapy drugs oral mucosal ulcerations, uncontrolled herpes, candidiasis and pseudomoniasis were observed.

Inter-relationship between dental, skeletal and chronological ages in well-nourished and mal-nourished children.
A Gulati, JR Taneja, SL Chopra, S Madan
March 1996, 14(1):19-23
Dental casts, wrist roentgenograms and full mouth radiographs of teeth of 80 mal-nourished and 40 well-nourished children were evaluated and compared for correlation of dental, skeletal and chronological ages. The findings revealed (1) very high correlation between dental and skeletal ages (r = 0.9584); (2) high correlation of chronological age with dental and skeletal ages (r = 0.8635 and r = 0.8716); (3) out of all the three correlations considered, dental and skeletal ages had the maximum correlation; (4) malnutrition had a significant adverse effect on the skeletal and dental ages. Greater the severity of malnutrition, more pronounced was its effect on the dental and skeletal ages; and (5) no evidence of severity of malocclusion with retarded skeletal and dental ages.

Steiner's norms for North Indian pre-school children.
Anuradha, JR Taneja, SL Chopra, A Gupta
March 1996, 14(1):36-7
A roentgenographic cephalometric investigation to establish Steiner's norms in pre-school children was carried out on 60, 4-5-year-old North Indian children with complete normal established primary dentition and pleasing profiles. The North Indian children were found to possess a convex profile, steeper occlusal plane, steeper mandibular plane and more upright incisors over basal bone at 4-5 years of age as compared to that of Caucasian children. None of the measurements showed sexual dimorphism of any statistical significance. The Steiner's norms from a sample of Caucasian population are not as such applicable to North Indian pre-school children.

Effect of timing of palatal repair on the transverse development of maxillary alveolar arch in complete-cleft cases.
M Shamsudheen, A Utreja, A Tewari, PS Chari
March 1996, 14(1):15-8
Forty cleft cases in the age range of 5-12 years where the palatal repair had been performed at 16-24 months (17 cases), 24-36 months (15 cases) and 36-72 months (8 cases) were assessed retrospectively, for the status of maxillary arch and were segregated as acceptable and unacceptable. Plaster casts were prepared from alginate impressions and their graphical reproduction using Huddart's technique, were used to measure the alveolar arch. Anterior palatal measurement (C-C') and posterior palatal measurement (P-P') of the cleft subjects were compared with that in the non-cleft matched controls. The 16-24 month group showed 41.2% acceptable and 58.8% unacceptable arch cases. The 24-36 month group showed that 73.4% had acceptable arches and 26.6% had unacceptable arches. In the 36-72 months group the arch was acceptable in 62.5% cases and unacceptable in 37.5% cases. It was concluded that palatal repair performed before 24 months of age adversely affected the maxillary growth, whereas most favourable growth of maxillary arch occurred when the repair was done between 24-36 months.

March 1996, 14(1):18-21
The in-vitro study undertaken on sixty teeth, 30 each of second primary molars and first premolars to evaluate the effectiveness of sealing property of composite-ionomer laminate restorations given on buccal aspects of these teeth after either Dycal base, ionomer base not etched and ionomer base etched indicated significantly more microleakage in dycal base composite resin restorations than composite ionomer. No difference in microleakage was seen in etched and unetched composite ionomer laminate restorations. Though microleakage was observed more in primary teeth than permanent teeth it was not found to be statistically significant.

In vitro evaluation of micromarginal leakage of three filling systems--an autoradiographic analysis using radio isotope S35 as a tracer.
U Mohandas, VV Reddy
March 1996, 14(1):4-8
An in vitro study was carried out on 60 human pre- molar teeth to study the sealing efficacy of Glass Ionomer, Silver amalgam, Composite resin and cavity varnish in Class V cavities. The filled specimens were thermocycled (4 degrees C +/- 2 degrees C and 60 degrees C +/- 2 degrees C) and subjected to Radio Isotope penetration tests. S35 was used as a tracer and autoradiography for detecting the microleakage. The extent of penetration of S35 in case of each material was assessed. No material was found to completely seal the cavity, however, Glass Ionomer could minimise the microleakage. Amalgam restorations exhibited gross microleakage which reduced to a great extent after application of cavity varnish. Composite resin was found to be superior to Silver amalgam in controlling microleakage.

Fifty repaired complete cleft lip and palate cases (38 UCLP and 12 BCLP) in the age range of 6 to 14 years were evaluated for transverse and vertical asymmetry using postero-anterior cephalograms. A total of nine bilateral landmarks, representing upper face, mid face and lower face were used. Results showed that asymmetry was not confined to any single plane of reference but manifested in both dimensions--transverse and vertical. The UCLP group had greater asymmetry of mid face than the BCLP group. Asymmetry was found to be extending to distant areas besides the contiguous structures.
