Caries prevalence and its relation to socio-economic status and oral hygiene practices in 600 pre-school children of Kerala-India.
S Kuriakose, E Joseph
September 1999, 17(3):97-100
This Study was undertaken to determine the caries status of pre-school children in Ulloor Panchayat of Trivandrum, Kerala and to determine the relation if any, between their caries and socio-economic status and oral practices. 200 children each from the low, middle arid higher socio-economic group were visually examined for caries by the same examiner in natural daylight. Caries was recorded according to the WHO criteria. Information regarding the childrens' oral hygiene practices were obtained through structured questionnaires to the care takers of the children. Computer analysis of the data collected showed that 43% of the study sample were caries free. Socio-economic level was found to have a negative association with caries status. The mode of tooth brushing was found to be significantly related to caries severity while the frequency of tooth brushing was found to have no association with caries prevalence and severity.

Peripheral giant cell granuloma--a case report.
SS Bhat, A Jayakrishnan, BH Rao, S Kudva
September 1999, 17(3):93-6
Peripheral giant cell granuloma is a lesion arising mainly from the connective tissue of gingiva or periosteum of alveolar ridge. A case of peripheral giant cell granuloma involving a deciduous molar and the succedaneous tooth is reported. The lesion was large and interfered with occlusion. Surgical excision of the lesion along with the deciduous first molar was done. The underlying permanent first premolar was also involved, and had to be removed. The importance of an adequate salivary flow and maintenance of oral hygiene in the prevention of such lesions is stressed.

Effect of endodontic smear layer and various solvents on the calcium ion diffusion through radicular dentin--an in vitro study.
N Srivastava, S Chandra
September 1999, 17(3):101-6
External root resorption and ankylosis remains the major cause of failure of replanted teeth. This study was conducted to explore the different ways to increase the pH of periradicular area in order to overcome the problem of root resorption and ankylosis. 60 freshly extracted permanent anteriors were used after removing the crown at CEJ. After biomechanical preparation Ca (OH)2 was injected and assays were done using EDTA, Citric and tannic acid Assays were repeated. Calcium diffusion and pH in the root exterior was measured using spectrophotometer. Results showed that dentin is permeable to calcium & hydroxyl ions and placement of Ca (OH)2 in the canal resulted in its increased recovery and alkaline pH periradicularly. Smear layer removal did not result in significant increase in Ca++ recovery or alkaline pH however combination of EDTA & NaOCl was found best than the other two.

Trace elements in enamel of sound primary and permanent teeth.
B Bhattacherjee, S Sarkar
September 1999, 17(3):113-7
Chemically made enamel is a dynamic substance rather than inert. Trace elements of enamel take active part in demineralisation, remineralization, ionic exchange, various physiological and pathological conditions.

Relationship between the existing caries status, plaque S. mutans and Cariostat caries activity test in children.
AK Munshi, AM Hegde, A Munshi
September 1999, 17(3):73-89
An attempt was made in this study to find out the sensitivity and specificity of a caries activity test, CARIOSTAT and its relationship to the existing caries status and the plaque S. mutans level. The test proved to be highly sensitive and specific with significant relationship to the S.mutans count in the dental plaque. There also was a significant relationship between both the cultured microorganisms on MSB agar and the plaque in the Cariostat medium.

Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia--a case report.
VK Gopinath, KM Manoj, K Mahesh
September 1999, 17(3):90-2
A case presented here is that of a nine year old male patient with total anodontia. Findings of this case as regards to the orofacial, radiographic and other general manifestations were suggestive of hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia. The dental problems were best managed by prosthetic replacement of dentition taking into consideration a design which would provide adequate relief for the preservation of the ridges which were thin and underdeveloped to the absence of teeth.

S Sarkar
September 1999, 17(3):107-10
Lobster Claw Syndrome is a type of syndactyly, where abnormalities in the hand-foot region as well as the orodental region occur. A case of a 14-year old boy with this syndrome is presented here.

Inverted mesiodens--a case report.
S Nikhil, Vineeta, P Gupta
September 1999, 17(3):111-2
A nine and a half years old female school child was examined in a during routine dental examination. The patient had swelling over maxillary midline area just near the labial frenum. Both the central incisors were in position. Radiographic examination revealed presence of an inverted supernumerary tooth between the roots of the central incisors. Surgical extraction of the supernumerary was planned. A unique case of inverted (upside down) mesiodens is presented.
