Abstract: Background and Objectives – The aim of the study is to compare the plaque removal efficacy of five commercially available tooth brushes. Materials & Methods –The study group consisted of 75 subjects with age ranging 17 to 27 years distributed into five groups- Group A [Colgate Supershine], Group B [Colgate Zig zag], Group C [Oral B Allrounder], Group D [Oral B Fresh Clean], Group E [Pepsodent double action]. Study was single blinded, randomized clinical trial. Turesky- Gilmore- Glickmann Modification of Quigley-Hein Plaque Index and Modified Sulcular bleeding index were assessed at baseline, 4 weeks and 8 weeks. Results – All brushes showed significant reduction in plaque score over 8 weeks. The percentage of plaque reduction from baseline to 4 weeks for Group A, B, C, D & E is 58.74, 61.95, 57.86, 50.28 & 53.59 respectively. The percentage of plaque reduction from baseline to 8 weeks for Group A, B, C, D & E is 67.83, 76.11, 62.86, 56.42 & 60.13 respectively. The percentage of plaque reduction from 4 weeks to 8 weeks for Group A, B, C, D & E is 22.03, 37.21, 11.86, 12.36 & 14.08 respectively. However, the reduction of plaque scores is greater in Group B [76%] when compared to other groups. Conclusion – Within the limitations of the study, the data derived from the study shows that all the tooth brushes has shown decrease in plaque scores. In comparison, Colgate Zig zag [Group B] has some beneficial effects in reduction of plaque scores.
Abstract: The otherwise considered being one of the smallest and weakest teeth in the arch, mandibular second premolars have been found to almost double its size in macrodontia. Such anomalies of morphological alterations have caused the teeth to be more weak and prone to diseases, as accredited to the increased surface area and particular morphology. Bilateral mandibular second premolar macrodontia is an extremely rare dental anomaly with only 5 cases reported to date, among which the first case was reported in 1967 by Primack. This article focuses on a rare case report of bilateral macrodontia of mandibular second premolar in an 18year old male.
Abstract: In the overall scheme of disease prevention, oral health is often overlooked. Oral health plays an important role in an individual’s overall health. More than 90 percent of all systemic diseases have oral manifestations. Many diseases can be diagnosed in their early stages through an oral examination. Oral diseases and conditions may have a significant impact on general health; some poor general health conditions also may affect oral health status. The oral cavity is a portal of entry as well as the site of disease for microbial infections that affect general health status. Oral diseases affecting children include dental caries, early childhood caries (baby bottle tooth decay), periodontal diseases, other soft tissue diseases, congenital malformations and oral and facial injuries incurred through sports activities and child abuse. Although these may not be life threatening, yet they cause lot of morbidity, psychological stress and their treatment is expensive. Most oral diseases and injuries can be prevented by the proper and timely use of scientifically based and widely accepted preventive and educational regimens and interventions. Overall, dental and oral health care in India is not in optimal condition. There is, therefore, an urgent need to prevent the rising dental diseases in India.
Abstract: Edentulous spaces can be closed with dental implants, prosthesis, and orthodontic space closure. As mandibular bone is dense, protraction of molars is time taking and challenging. Temporary anchorage devices play a vital role in providing anchorage. Translation of molars can be achieved with power arms which are placed near to the centre of resistance. This is a case with bilaterally missing mandibular first molars and lower central incisor. Ridge defect is seen in molar region on right side. Class II molar relation was achieved bilaterally with second molar moving into first molar space followed by the third molar. Translation was achieved bilaterally and 10mm of space closure was done with the help of TAD’s and power arms.

Abstract: Oral health is very important part of human health and cannot lead good life without it. Poor oral health often factors of oral cancer. Oral cancer is very dreadful disease that affects many people each year all over the world and it is eleventh most dominate cancer in the world. Oral cancer is also reported in Bangladesh and more than 7000 people are diagnosed each year and 6.6 % people are died. This paper shows the total oral cancer picture in Bangladesh based on different literatures and cancer registry from the web and also different risk factors that associated with this disease.
Abstract: Revascularization is a treatment procedure that promotes the apexogenesis of a necrotic immature permanent tooth. This case report presents a successful management of a 9 year old male patient with a necrotic, immature maxillary right first premolar, via revascularization of the tooth. This procedure can be considered a promising approach over traditional methods.

Abstract: Bell’s palsy is defined as a neuropathy of the peripheral seventh cranial nerve or the facial nerve. It is usually from an idiopathic cause but it can result from traumatic, compressive, infective, inflammatory or metabolic abnormalities involving the facial nerve. Bell’s palsy is more common in adults than in children. We present a case of Bell’s palsy in an 38-year-old women who completely recovered after treatment with oral antiviral agents and steroids followed by regular facial physiotherapy. The dilemma in management of Bell’s palsy with a review of relevant literature is discussed in this report.

Abstract: This case report evaluates the clinical and radiographic response of biphasic calcium phosphate (ossify) when used in combination with bioresorbable membrane (sybograft - GBR) for the treatment of intrabony defect around multi-rooted teeth with an endodontic and periodontal lesion. A 47-year-old female patient with an endo-perio lesion in the left mandibular first molar was initially treated with endodontic therapy. After endontic management of the teeth a full-thickness flap reflected, complete degranulation and root planing was performed. An allograft was then used to fill the defect and a GBR membrane was placed over the filled defect. Radiographs, clinical probing depths, and attachment levels were obtained before treatment, 3, 6, 9 and 24 months following treatment. Reduction in pocket depth and gain in clinical attachment level were observed during follow up. This case report demonstrates that proper diagnosis, followed by removal of etiological factors and utilizing the guided tissue regeneration technique combined with osseous grafting, will restore health and function of a tooth with severe bone loss caused by an endo-perio lesion. This report highlights a conservative and regenerative approach to the management of endo-perio lesion rather than a radical approach such as hemisection.
Abstract: Interleukin (IL)-10 is an important immunoregulatory cytokine produced by many cell populations. Its main biological function seems to be the limitation and termination of inflammatory responses and the regulation of differentiation and proliferation of several immune cells such as T cells, B cells, natural killer cells, antigen-presenting cells, mast cells, and granulocytes. The present study has correlated the salivary IL-10 levels with that of the circulatory levels in periodontal health and diseased patients and also brings an attestation for Saliva as point of care diagnosis.

Abstract: Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is a rare odontogenic tumor often misdiagnosed as odontogenic cyst. AOT is predominantly found in female patients, which usually arise in the second or third decade and is located more often in the maxilla than mandible and often associated with an unerupted permanent tooth. However, AOT frequently resembles other odontogenic lesions such as dentigerous cysts or ameloblastoma. Treatment is conservative and the prognosis is excellent. For illustration a rare case of an AOT in the mandible which is associated with an unerupted permanent canine is presented.
Abstract: Dens Invaginatus (DI) is a rare developmental anomaly, which presents as an infolding of enamel and dentine extending into the pulp chamber and sometimes into the root. The aim of this case report was to describe its radiographic findings, to emphasize the inexplicable morphology. Considering the likelihood of an early pulpal involvement and the chronic periapical lesions often associated with this anomaly without any clinical symptoms, dens invaginatus is clinically significant. Difficulties are encountered during the endodontic treatment, owing to the complex root canal anatomy. Therefore, a proper diagnosis and evaluation of the anomaly is essential to save the involved tooth.

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.
