Abstract

Background: Extreme dental fear is a universal problem among children. The dental condition of patients with dental fear is generally worse than the condition of those without dental fear. The aim of the study was to assess the intensity of dental fear in children using Wong-Baker faces pain scale. Materials and Methods: A total of 110 patients in the age range of 8-11 years were recruited for the study. Dental fear was assessed using a structured questionnaire. Data was gathered, computed and statistically analysed to determine the most and the least fearful dental situation for children. Results: Younger children expressed more fear than older children. Fear of injections and sound of drill was most common among children of all the age groups. Conclusion: Dental fear leads to avoidance of dental treatment. The child should be taught that the dental office is not a place to fear and dentistry should never be employed by the parents as a threat or punishment.

Abstract

Objective: To assess the pharyngeal airway dimension in different types of malocclusion. Materials and Methods: Literature was searched through PubMed, Web of Science, Embase, and All EBM Reviews. The inclusion criteria consisted of studies written in English; published in the past three decades; concerning the pharyngeal airway dimension in different types of malocclusion. Results: Our search strategy identified (PUBMED -22, AND MeSH -22) titles and abstracts of studies which were independently assessed. We also ran a free text search on Google Scholar for any further potentially eligible trials which resulted in the identification of 1 published. Full text copies of these studies were obtained from the Internet, and were then subjected to further assessment. We also checked the bibliographical references of these papers for any relevant studies and found all the included articles were found through electronic search. Conclusion: The pharyngeal airway dimensions are subjected to change with different malocclsuion and Narrow pharyngeal airway space is one of the predisposing factors for mouth breathing and obstructive sleep apnoea.

Abstract

Background: Talon cusp is a rare anomaly projecting from the dento-enamel junction to a variable distance towards the incisal edge of an anterior tooth. Hyperactivity of the enamel organ during morphodifferentiation has been accredited to its formation. When it occurs, the effects are mainly aesthetic and functional and so early detection and treatment is essential in its management to avoid complications. Case presentation: An unusual case of talon cusp on the lingual aspect of a mandibular central incisor with fusion is reported. Conclusion: The management and treatment outcome of talon cusp depends on the size, presenting complications and patient cooperation.

Abstract

Gingival recession is one of the most prevalent problems seen among the patients visiting to our dental hospital. Recession is caused by many factors including plaque, faulty brushing habits and trauma from occlusion. The prevalence of recession among the various races of people visiting our hospital is estimated in this study.
