"Talon cusp-heredity origin"--a case report.
S Sarkar, J Misra, G Das
December 1999, 17(4):126-8
Talon cusp is a very unusual anomalous structure of tooth. The etiology is still unknown. It may be due to mal-interaction between ecto and mesoderm of epithelial bulgings present on premaxillary region at the time of complex odontogenesis. Genetics may have some role in the formation of Talon cusp. Talon cusp may cause clinical complications.

Prevalence of dental caries and risk assessment among primary school children of 6-12 years in the Varkala municipal area of Kerala.
N Retnakumari
December 1999, 17(4):135-42
This epidemiological survey attempted to establish the prevalence and severity of dental caries among primary school children of Varkala municipal area. The prevalence of dental caries was 68.5% with a standard error (SE) of 1.64% and 95%, confidence interval (CI) 65.18, 71.82. The highest caries prevalence was found among 10 year age group (75.9%) and lowest in the 8 year age group (63%). The highest dmft score was found in 9 year age group 2.73 +/- 0.443 and highest DMFT score was found in 12 year age group 2.06 +/- 0.3824. Statistically significant association was found with dental caries and oral hygiene status (Odds Ratio (OR) 3.59, 95% CI, 2.53, 5.06 and oral cleanliness OR 2.73, 95% CI 2.96, 3.82). Statistically significant association was found between low socioeconomic status and prevalence of caries (O.R. 1.89, 95% CI--1.28, 2.8).

Relationship between cariogenic diet and dental caries as evaluated from a 5-day diet diary in 4-12 year-old children.
G Lehl, K Bansal, R Sekhon
December 1999, 17(4):119-21
A preliminary study was conducted on 50 children in the age group of 4-12 years, who were divided into two groups on the basis of decayed, missing and filled teeth (DMFT) i.e. Group A (1-3) and Group B (> 3). A 5-day diet diary was evaluated and Sweet Score, Total Sugar Exposure, At Meal Sugar Exposures and Between Meal Sugar Exposure were calculated. There was statistically significant difference between the two groups in relation to Sweet Score and Total sugar Exposures. Between Meal Sugar Exposure and At Meal sugar exposure did not differ significantly.

Parental presence in the dental operatory-parent's point of view.
R Arathi, R Ashwini
December 1999, 17(4):150-5
Parental presence in the dental operatory is considered a controversial issue and majority of dentists prefer mothers not to be present in the operatory while the child receives dental care. Very few studies have focussed on the parental' point of view. The present study was carried out to find out the attitudes of parents towards being present determine in the operatory during dental procedure and also to determine if willingness to be present was influenced by variables like age, sex, order of the child among siblings and previous dental behavior. Data was collected from 1350 parents using a questionnaire designed by the authors. In the present study, 78.3% of parents expressed their willingness to be present with the child during dental procedures. The study also showed that parents of younger children were more likely to be willing to be present in the operatory and as age advanced, the percentage of parents willing to be present in the operatory decreased.

Effects of variation of the timing of palatal repair on nasality of speech in complete cleft lip and palate children.
B Nandlal, A Tewari, AK Utreja, PS Chari, N Raghunathan
December 1999, 17(4):146-9
Nasality is related to factors like velopharyngeal closure and acoustic factors pertaining to cavities. The present investigation is a retrospective study aimed at evaluating the effects of variation in the timing of palatal repair on nasality during speech development in complete cleft lip and palate cases. It has been observed that the delay in palatal repair is associated with increase in nasality. Also, from the operated complete cleft lip and palate cases, it has been observed that the early and medium repair groups had almost similar effects on nasality of speech. (if they were operated before 36 months of age).

Traumatic bone cyst--a case report.
SS Bhat, SB Rao
December 1999, 17(4):129-31
Traumatic bone cyst is an asymptomatic, slow growing, non expansile lesion commonly diagnosed during routine radiographic examination of the jaw bones. It is more frequently seen in young age, with predilection for anterior region of the mandible leading to a dramatic healing of the lesion. A typical case of traumatic bone cyst in a 12 year old girl is reported. A routine radiologic assessment of the patient with panoramic radiograph revealed a fairly large lesion in the anterior region of the mandible. On surgical exploration, clinical diagnosis was confirmed. Post operative successive radiograph shows progressive osseous healing.

Peripheral osteoma of mandible arising from anterior lingual alveolar plate--a case report.
V Rattan, R Gautam
December 1999, 17(4):132-4
Peripheral osteomas of the mandible are uncommon bony tumours. Of those that have been described, the location is normally posterior to the premolars on the lingual surface of the mandible or in the condylar area. This article presents a case of an atypical presentation of an osteoma arising from the anterior lingual alveolar cortical plate of the mandible.
