Management of two unusual cases of dens invaginatus and talon cusp associated with other dental anomalies.
A Tiku, UM Nadkarni, SG Damle
September 2004, 22(3):128-33
The management of two unusual cases of dens invaginatus and talon cusp is presented. The first concerns talon cusp in maxillary primary and permanent lateral incisors, a supplemental tooth with dens invaginatus hampering eruption of the permanent incisors. The other present with bizarre crown morphology of a lateral incisor with talon cusp, dens invaginatus and a palatal accessory cusp-like structure. Early diagnosis and management are important to avoid complications.

"Moebius syndrome" : a case report.
ND Shashikiran, VV Subba Reddy, R Patil
September 2004, 22(3):96-9
Moebius syndrome is an extremely rare disorder characterized by a lifetime facial paralysis, involving sixth and seventh cranial nerves with malformations of orofacial structures and the limbs. In this case, an 8 year old girl with Moebius syndrome is presented, clinical findings are described and management aspects are discussed. Early dental evaluation and parental counselling as a part of preventive dental regimen can go a long way in providing complete psychosocial rehabilitation for such physically disabled children.

A compound composite odontoma associated with unerupted permanent incisor--a case report.
Zoremchhingi, T Joseph, B Varma, J Mungara
September 2004, 22(3):114-7
Odontomas are the most common type of odontogenic tumors and generally they are asymptomatic. Frequently it may interfere with the eruption of the teeth. This is a case report of a compound composite odontoma in a 9 year old girl, which results in failure of eruption of the permanent upper right central incisor while the contralateral tooth had erupted. A calcified mass was seen in the radiograph and was provisionally diagnosed as odontoma following which the odontoma was enucleated. Routine follow up was done for more than a year and no recurrence was seen. This case report indicates that early diagnosis and management ensures better prognosis.

Dental erosion in children : an increasing clinical problem.
SD Deshpande, SM Hugar
September 2004, 22(3):118-27
Epidemiological studies carried out on dental erosion have established that the prevalence is high in young people and adolescents. The objective of this study was to look at the prevalence and etiology of dental erosion, particularly in children, and its practical management for its possible control. The children between 5-6 yrs were examined and findings recorded, and this study has shown that approximately 1/3rd of 5-6 yrs old children have appreciable tooth wear and dental erosion.

Evaluation of an alum-containing mouthrinse for inhibition of salivary streptococcus mutans levels in children--a controlled clinical trial.
K Mourughan, MP Suryakanth
September 2004, 22(3):100-5
The anticariogenic effect of alum was evaluated in the study by measuring the salivary S. mutans levels of children at baseline, after 3-weeks, and 6-weeks of using alum-containing mouthrinses. Sixty subjects with a mean age of eleven years were selected and randomly divided into four groups. Two experimental mouthrinses (alum in physiological saline and alum in distilled water) and two control mouthrinses (physiological saline and distilled water) were given for a period of 6 weeks on a daily basis. Salivary samples were collected at the end of 3 weeks and 6 weeks and S. mutans levels were assessed and compared with baseline values and among each other. Both the alum-containing mouthrinses produced statistically significant reductions in S. mutans levels in children, thus tempting us to announce alum as a routine oral hygiene measure, though its safety for prolonged usage needs to be established by long-term studies.

Band and loop space maintainer--made easy.
UA Nayak, J Loius, R Sajeev, J Peter
September 2004, 22(3):134-6
Space maintainers have been used in Pediatric Dentistry for many years. The use of these appliances, however, in terms of indications, contraindications, design and construction has gained little attention from researchers. This paper highlights the construction of a new technique of fabrication of band and loop space maintainer. The advantages of this new Direct technique or Single sitting technique over the conventional technique are discussed.

Efficacy and acceptabilty of oral-transmucosal midazolam as a conscious sedation agent in pre-school children.
A Kapur, SH Chawla, A Goyal, K Gauba, N Bhardwaj
September 2004, 22(3):109-13
The purpose of the present study was to test the efficacy of oral-transmucosal route of administration of midazolam in young potentially un-cooperative children. A sample of 40 children up to 4 years of age with ASA I status were randomly divided into experimental and control groups of 20 each. The children in experimental group received 0.5-mg/kg-body weight midazolam mixed in strawberry syrup via the oral-transmucosal route and those in control group were given the same syrup diluted with normal saline. A class II amalgam restoration was performed and routine behavior management techniques were employed in both groups. It was found that the number of procedures successfully completed and sedation produced 15 minutes after test solution administration was significantly greater in the experimental group compared to the control group. The total treatment time was also much lesser in the experimental group children. There was no significant difference in the acceptability of the test solutions in the children of the two groups.

Periapical repair and apical closure of a pulpless tooth using calcium hydroxide--a case report.
R Kalaskar, A Tiku, SG Damle
September 2004, 22(3):158-61
A case with a open apex and a large periapical lesion in a 10 year old boy is presented. The lesion formed as a result of necrosis from trauma to a maxillary right central incisor 1 year ago. Apical closure and complete healing of periapical lesion was observed after non-surgical endodontic treatment using calcium hydroxide paste. This report suggests that even large periapical lesions could respond favourably to non-surgical treatment.

The prevalence and pattern of nursing caries in preschool children of Tehran.
N Askarizadeh, P Siyonat
September 2004, 22(3):92-5
This cross sectional study was carried out to determine the prevalence and pattern of nursing caries and its relevant factors in preschool children of Tehrari. 620 children aged 2-6 yrs were selected randomly from 22 kindergartens in Tehran. They were examined for dental caries. The criteria used for nursing caries was presence of caries on buccal or palatal surfaces of at least two maxillary incisors with absence of caries in mandibular incisors. A questionaire was used for evaluation of related factors.

Maxillo- mandibular relationship--a cephalometric study.
DN Kapoor, A Chandana, S Tandon
September 2004, 22(3):137-43
An accurate assessment of apical base relationships using cephalometrics has been a perennial problem in orthodontics. The currently available literature suggests that reference points and planes are subject to change with treatment. Hence, an assessment of sagittal jaw relationship was done using five angular measurements and an attempt was made to determine the one which is statistically more accurate.

Hereditary opalescent dentin--a case report.
M Singh, S Singh
September 2004, 22(3):144-7
A female patient aged 6 years reported with brown coloured small sized teeth that were continuously wearing out. The teeth were badly attrited upto the gingival margins. The occlusal surfaces were flattened. The clinical and radiographical examination confirmed the case as Hereditary opalescent Dentin. The rationale for early diagnosis and treatment has been discussed.

"Craniofacial and dental manifestations of a case of Proteus syndrome".
P Batra, R Duggal, H Parkash
September 2004, 22(3):154-7
Proteus syndrome, which is a reference to the ancient Greek god Proteus, the Polymorphous, was called to the attention of pediatricians. Recognition of this syndrome has been difficult because of the variability of the syndrome's manifestations and because of its rarity. We describe a rare case of Proteus syndrome and we discuss its differential diagnosis. Our case presents with hemi facial hypertrophy, scrotal tongue, enamel hyperplasia as well as differential in the size of the dentition on both sides of the arch.
