Management of an infant with cleft lip and palate with phocomelia in dental practice.
MS Muthu
December 2000, 18(4):141-3
Cleft lip and palate is a severe birth defect occurring approximately one in 800-1000 newborn infants. The incidence varies widely among races. Cleft lip and palate together account for approximately 50% of all cases whereas isolated cleft lip and isolated cleft palate occur in about 25% of cases. Many of these congenital anomalies appear to be genetically determined though the majority are of unknown causes or teratogenic influences. Presented here is a 3 day old infant with bilateral cleft lip and palate and phocomelia for whom a feeding obturator was made and delivered to facilitate feeding.

Effect of black tea on teeth.
S Sarkar, P Sett, T Chowdhury, DK Ganguly
December 2000, 18(4):139-40
Dental caries is the prime cause of premature loss of teeth in children. Tea contains high percentage of fluoride along with polyphenolic constituents which act on GTF of S. mutans in plaque synthesis. Combination of fluoride and polyphenolic constituents inhibit caries activity.

Mesiodens : a retrospective study of fifty teeth.
A Roychoudhury, Y Gupta, H Parkash
December 2000, 18(4):144-6
A retrospective study of 30 cases of mesiodens is presented. male preponderance of 1.5:1. was 64% mesiodens were impacted and 36% erupted. Inverted impacted mesiodens was seen in 62.5% of the impacted mesiodens. 66.6% cases had 2 mesiodens per case. The harmful effects on the dentition were mostly crowding, rotation, diastema and impacted permanent incisor.

A clinical profile to assess the potential risk factors for cleft lip and palate.
P Rajesh, R Rajesh, V Narayanan, MF Baig, VR Prabhu, A Venkatesan
December 2000, 18(4):147-50
Cleft lip and palate is one of the most common malformations in man. Although the subject of a great deal of investigation, etiologic factors contributing to these congenital deformities remain largely unknown. Various factors like race, sex, parental age at the time of conception etc. have been listed as the exogenous factors. This article strives to project any significant relationship of these factors to cleft lip and cleft palate.

Age prediction based on skeletal morphology.
S Kapoor, DN Kapoor, M Srivastava
December 2000, 18(4):127-34
Treatment plan for a child requires a complete diagnosis with monitoring of the skeleto-dental morphological changes during active period of growth. Growth modifications are done while the forces of growth are still at the peak of activity in a developing child. This study was undertaken on lateral cephalograms of 100 North Indian samples in the age group of 9-12 years consisting of 50 males and 50 females divided into normal occlusion and malocclusion groups, to predict and assess age by evaluating the skeleto-dental morphology in developing normal children having flush terminal plane molar relationship and children with developing class II pattern. It was concluded that based on measurements used in the study of dentofacial morphology, the age of a child could be statistically determined.

Oto-mandibulo-facial dysostosis : a case report.
KR Indushekar, N Muhamad
December 2000, 18(4):135-8
The case presented here is a 6 year old male child with oto-mandibulo-facial dysostosis syndrome. Oto-mandibulo-facial dysostosis is a term used for a unilateral congenital birth defect in which abnormalities can range from minor unilateral ear anomalies or preauricular tags to severe ones involving anotia and mandibular hypoplasia.

Effects of variation in the timing of palatal repair on sagittal craniofacial morphology in complete cleft lip and palate children.
Nandlal, A Utreja, A Tewari, PS Chari
December 2000, 18(4):153-60
The complete cleft lip and palate children, ranging from 6-14 years of age were studied to evaluate the effect of variation in the timing of palatal repair on craniofacial morphology and compared to the noncleft children. It was observed that all the groups early (8 to < or = 24 months), medium (> 24 to < or = 36 months) and late repair (> 36 to < or = 78 months) had significantly larger cranial base, retruded maxillomandibular relations, skeletodental and incisal relationships compared to the noncleft children. However, intercomparison among the cleft groups showed insignificant difference amongst them suggesting that the timing of palatal repairs does not effect the anterioposterior (sagittal) relationship.
