Ankylosis of primary molar along with congenitally missing first permanent molar
BS Suprabha, SM Pai
May 2006, 24(5):35-37
Ankylosis of primary mandibular molars has been routinely found to be associated with various developmental disturbances in permanent dentition such as aplasia of the succedaneous tooth, ectopic eruption of the premolar, infraoclusion of the ankylosed tooth leading to tipping of the first permanent molar etc. This article describes a rare case where there was ankylosis of a mandibular second primary molar along with congenitally missing first permanent molar which resulted in the transposition of second premolar. Treatment options and prognosis of the case are discussed.

Permanent molars: Delayed development and eruption
R Arathi, BS Suprabha, SM Pai
May 2006, 24(5):15-17
Delayed development and eruption of all the permanent molars is a rare phenomenon, which can cause disturbance in the developing occlusion. The eruption of permanent first and second molars is very important for the coordination of facial growth and for providing sufficient occlusal support for undisturbed mastication. In the case described, the first permanent molars were delayed in their development and were seen erupting at the age of nine and a half years. Severe disparity between the left and the right side of the dentition with respect to the rate of development of molars were also present.

Dens evaginatus of anterior teeth (talon cusp) associated with other odontogenic anomalies
Amita Sharma
May 2006, 24(5):41-43
Depending on tooth location, usually, dens evaginatus describes an anomaly of posterior teeth and talon cusp as an anomaly of anterior teeth. From the standpoint of developmental, morphological and histological considerations dens evaginatus is a more acceptable term to use and talon cusp should be considered as a subset of dens evaginatus. It mostly occurs as an isolated finding rather than an integral part of any disorder. Two cases of dens evaginatus along with other dental anomalies are reported.

Rubinstein Taybi syndrome
A Stalin, Balagopal R Varma, Jayanthi
May 2006, 24(5):27-30
Rubinstein Taybi syndrome or Broad Thumb and Hallux syndrome is a genetic multisystem disorder characterized by facial dysmorphism, growth retardation and mental deficiency. A ten-year-old boy who had come to the Department of Pedodontics, Ragas Dental College, Chennai, with the chief complaint of unaesthetic appearance with extra teeth revealed delay in the developmental milestones. The patient appeared to be hyperactive and mentally retarded. Extra oral features revealed distinctive facial appearance with a broad fore head, hypertelorism, broad nasal bridge and beaked nose. Intra oral features observed were talons cusps in the upper central and lateral incisors, mesiodens, carious teeth and plaque accumulation. Since the patient was hyper active and mentally retarded, the dental treatment was done under GA. The treatment plan and dental management of this patient are discussed in this case report.

Non-syndrome associated multiple supernumerary teeth: A report of two cases
Ullal Anand Nayak, VM Mathian, Veerakumar
May 2006, 24(5):11-14
Multiple supernumerary teeth are usually associated with syndromes. On the contrary, multiple supernumerary teeth without association with any syndromes are very rare. This article presents a report of two cases with multiple supernumerary teeth not associated with any syndrome and emphasizes the routine advice of orthopantomogram whenever a single supernumerary tooth is detected irrespective of whether the patient has any syndrome or not.

Tejashri Gupte, V Iyer, SG Damle, N Malik, A Halbe
May 2006, 24(5):44-46
Osteogenesis imperfecta is an inherited disorder of the connective tissue. The extreme bone fragility seen in patients suffering from osteogenesis imperfecta pose a series of problems with regard to behavior management and rendering of quality dental treatment. Presented here a case of a four year old child suffering from osteogenesis imperfecta.

Aberrant talon cusps: Report of two cases
Roshan Rayen, MS Muthu, N Sivakumar
May 2006, 24(5):7-10
Talon cusp is an uncommon anomaly seen both in primary and permanent dentition. In most instances they are associated with other clinical problems such as occlusal interferences, poor esthetics and caries susceptibility. Management of such instances requires a comprehensive knowledge of the clinical entity as well as the problems associated with it. Here, we present two cases of talon cusps.

Coexistent partial anodontia and supernumerary tooth in the mandibular arch: A rare case
G Das, Subir Sarkar, B Bhattacharya, N Saha
May 2006, 24(5):33-34
Coexistent partial anodontia and supernumerary tooth in the lower jaw is a very uncommon condition. Very few cases have been reported in the literature of this condition, etiology of which is still obscure. Presented here is a rare case of simultaneous presence of single supernumerary tooth together with missing permanent central incisor teeth in the lower jaw without any associated systemic condition or syndrome.

An impacted supplemental premolar in the mandible
M Koul, Rakesh Koul
