Periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory disease characterised by destruction of supporting structures of teeth.Diabetes mellitus is a syndrome of abnormal carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism that result in acute, chronic complications due to the absolute or lack of insulin.The progression of periodontal disease is influenced by factors like microorganism, host response, systemic background and genetic makeup of the host.1 Chronic hyperglycemia results in production of advanced glycation end substances (AGEs) in the tissues, which have protean effects on the periodontal microenvironment.The aim of the study was to assess the periodontal abscess among diabetic patients visiting dental college. A retrospective data of all the patients reported  for periodontal therapy to dental college was collected. The data was extracted  from the patients records. Data segregation was done based on  age, gender,site of periodontal abscess, blood sugar value probing depth, clinical attachment loss and mobility. After data collection statistical analysis was done in IBM SPSS software version 20. A total 50 diabetic patients with periodontal abscess were evaluated in this study and it showed about 64% of males and 36% % of females with periodontitis had diabetes. The most common age group that was affected was 36-45 years by 36%. The most prevalent site with periodontal abscess is lower left posterior by 24%. Probing depth of 5mm was seen mostly in patients with diabetes and periodontitis (34%). Clinical attachment loss of 6mm was seen mostly in patients with diabetes and periodontitis (50%). Grade 2 mobility was seen predominantly in patients with abscess(48%). Patients with periodontal abscess had blood sugar level above 200mg/dl by 50%. The chi square test was performed to determine the correlation between age of the periodontitis patients and the random blood sugar levels, the P value obtained was 0.045 (p<0.05) statistically significant. The most prevalent age group that was affected with periodontal abscess was  between 36-45 years. The males  were more  affected with  periodontal abscess among diabetics. The predominant site involved with periodontal abscess was the  lower left posterior region. The association between the  blood sugar levels  and age was significant statistically.

Most of the time non-vital teeth are associated with various pathologies. The early intervention would save the teeth from its loss. Depending on the etiology and the duration, the pathology differs among the non-vital teeth. The aim of this study was to evaluate   non-vital teeth with various endodontic pathologies. This retrospective study included patients who were diagnosed with non-vital teeth from July 2019 to March 2020 in a dental hospital. The case records of all patients were retrieved which included the clinical , radiographic examination and treatment done for the patients. Variables such as age, gender, any associated endodontic pathologies were retrieved from the case sheets. Data was tabulated and was subjected to statistical package IBM SPSS version 20.0.Around 80,000 patients were reviewed and 238 patients met the inclusion criteria.Out of 238 patients, 71.8% were males and 28.2% were females.On analysing the prevalence of non vital teeth among different age groups, 21-30 years age group (32.8%) were more affected. On comparing the non vital teeth with endodontic pathology ,non-vital teeth without periapical lesion (74.4%) were found to be in a higher prevalence. Among non-vital teeth with endodontic pathology, periapical abscess (14.3%) was found to have higher prevalence followed by periapical cyst (2.9%) and calcified canal (2.9%).On analysing the prevalence of non vital teeth among gender , males (71.8%) were more affected. No statistically significant association was found between age, gender and non vital teeth. (p>0.05).Within the limitation of the study, the prevalence of non-vital teeth without periapical lesion were found to be higher. Among non-vital teeth with endodontic pathology, the most common pathology was chronic periapical abscess.Males were more affected with non vital teeth and had higher prevalence among the 21-30 years age group.

Special needs children primarily refer to children whose physical or intellectual capacities have been affected to a certain degree. Oral diseases can be considered as a public health due to their high rate of prevalence and significant social impact. While oral problems considerably affect the general health status of normal children, children with special needs are at significantly higher risk. There is limited literature regarding the oral health status of children with special needs in the area under study.The aim of the study was to evaluate the oral health among pediatric patients with special needs in a Dental Hospital. A retrospective study was carried out using case records of patients who reported to the Department of Paediatric and Preventive Dentistry from June 2019 to March 2020. A total of 29 children with special needs were included for the study after considering the inclusion criteria. The age, gender,Simplified Oral Hygiene index scores,Gingival index scores,DMFT scores and Plaque index scores were observed from the case records and tabulated on a spreadsheet.The collected data was analysed by SPSS software version 20.0. The level of significance set at p<0.05.Chi-square test was used to compare the gender wise and age wise oral status of the patients. It was observed that significant association between gender and caries incidence (p<0.05). Within the limits of the study, it can be concluded that oral health in special children has an significant association with gender in regard to caries incidence.Males had poor oral hygiene with higher plaque and gingival scores. In regard to age 8 to 12 year and 13 to 17 year children had poor oral hygiene with high plaque and gingival scores. A preventive dentistry program should be undertaken in future involving parents, teachers, and specialized dental teams to look after the oral health needs of the disabled population.

Periodontitis, dental caries and oral cancer are among the most common dental diseases affecting people globally. Periodontitis has been identified as the sixth complication of diabetes, in which diabetic patients are more susceptible to develop periodontal disease thrice as often as non-diabetic patients. The risk of periodontitis increases in people with poorly controlled diabetes. The aim of this study was to assess the periodontal health among patients with diabetes mellitus. This retrospective study was conducted from June 2019-March 2020 among patients with diabetes mellitus. A total of 200 patients with diabetes were enrolled. Data regarding the periodontal status of the patients were collected from their records and analysis was carried out using IBM Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS version 23). Descriptive statistics (frequency distribution and percentage) and inferential statistics (chi-square test) were done.  In the present study, out of 200 diabetic patients, 116 patients had gingivitis and 84 patients had periodontitis. Prevalence of both gingivitis and periodontitis was higher among patients within the age group of 45-54 years. Also, prevalence of both gingivitis and periodontitis was higher in males than females. Association between age and periodontal status was found to be statistically significant with the p value of 0.04. The present study showed the prevalence of gingivitis and periodontitis among diabetic patients was 58% and 42% respectively.

The aim of this study was to assess patterns of mandibular fractures and its relationship with etiology. This descriptive, cross-sectional study analyzed all patients aged above 8 years who had been clinically or radiographically diagnosed with mandibular fractures from June, 2019 to March, 2020. Patients with pathological fractures or blast injuries were excluded. Data were analyzed using IBM SPSS Statistics for Windows, Version 20.0 (IBM Corp., Armonk, NY) and results obtained. Among 46 patients involved in mandibular fractures 41 were men (89.1%) and 5 were women (10.9%), and the majority of trauma patients (34.8%) were aged 21-30 years. The most frequent cause of mandibular fracture was road traffic accidents (RTA) mostly due to drunken driving (RTAs; 59.4%), followed by falls (18.8%). In patients with unilateral fractures, the most frequent site was the angle (23.9%), followed by the parasymphysis (15.2%). In patients with bilateral fractures, the most common sites were the dentoalveolar area (13%). All these results were statistically significant. p<0.05. On comparing the association between type of mandibular fractures and the other associated fractures, the results were statistically not significant. p>0.05. More mandibular fractures were present in men than in women mostly among the young adults. The most common etiological factor for mandibular fractures was road traffic accidents due to drunken driving, followed by falls. The most frequently fractured site was the angle of mandible followed by parasymphysis. The incidence of RTAs and resultant fractures may be reduced by strict prohibition of drunken driving, mandatory wearing of helmets, maintaining speed limits, and obeying proper traffic rules.

Recurrent Aphthous Ulcer(RAU)  is one of the most common painful,recurrent  oral mucosal disease that can be single or multiple seen among patients. These present as  round, or ovoid ulcers, with circumscribed margins, having yellow or gray floors and are surrounded by erythematous haloes. The etiology of Recurrent Aphthous Ulcer always remains unclear. Symptomatic treatment is usually done which usually includes topical corticosteroids. The aim of the study is to find out the association  of recurrent aphthous ulcer among the people who use smoking and smokeless form of tobacco.The study was carried out for a 1 year period ( June 2019 to April 2020) .229 patients data (213 males and 6 females) who visited Saveetha dental college and hospitals, Chennai were included. Statistical analysis was done by chi square test. In the study, it is observed that only 3.5% of the males who had tobacco usage habits were diagnosed with Recurrent Aphthous Ulcer. The patients aged between 31-40 years had higher prevalence of Recurrent Aphthous Ulcer (61.15%) compared to other age groups. Among the tobacco users only 1.75% of RAU was prevalent among smoking and smokeless groups respectively. There is no significant association between tobacco users and recurrent aphthous ulcer p value 0.625,p (>0.05). Minor aphthous ulcer (87.5%) were more commonly present compared to major apthous ulcer among tobacco users. Within the limitations of the study, among the tobacco usage patients, males are more prevalent for Recurrent Aphthous Ulcer than females and occurrence of RAU among tobacco users were less.Though there is no association,anti tobacco counselling to be conducted  frequently  to educate them from harmful effects of tobacco.

Replacement of missing teeth  represents  the  largest category  among  patients  in  clinics  who  are  looking for better esthetic and/or functional teeth. The fixed partial  denture  (FPD) is  one of  the  most commonly preferred  definitive  treatment  options  for  a  single missing tooth.To assess the patient preference of type of fixed treatment modalities a retrospective study was carried out using case records of 1208 patients who reported to the Department of Prosthodontics from June 2019 to March 2020.The number of patients preferring  fixed treatment modalities for one or two missing teeth were observed from the case records and tabulated on a spreadsheet. The collected data was analysed by computer software SPSS version 21 using Chi square test indicating the level of significance.Fixed partial denture was taken as a treatment of choice in 52.2% of the patient and implant was taken as treatment of choice in 47.8% of the patients. Both fixed partial denture and implant treatment were opted more among the male patients than female patients. Below the age of 30 years fixed partial denture was opted by 197(16.31%) of patients and implant by 163(13.49%) patients. Between the age of 31-60 years 369 patients(32.78%) opted fixed partial denture and 380 patients(31.46%) opted implants as treatment of choice.  Above  the age of 60 years, 37 patients(3.06%) and 35 patients(2.90%) had fixed partial denture and implant respectively with 31-60 years age group patients receiving maximum fixed treatments. Patient preferred treatment options with fixed  prosthesis had no significant association with neither age(p value-0.50) nor gender(p value-0.20).

Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are degenerative, musculoskeletal conditions associated with morphological and functional deformities. The etiology of TMD is considered multifactorial in nature and has been related to trauma, malocclusion, parafunctional habits such as bruxism, nail-biting, and non-nutritional sucking. The occurrence of TMD associated with parafunctional habits is in the ratio of women to men in 4:1. The aim of the study was to evaluate the association between parafunctional habits and temporomandibular disorders among dental patients. In this retrospective study, 51 patients with TMD as cases and 51 patients without TMD as controls were included in the study. Presence of parafunctional habits like thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, nail biting, lip biting and mouth breathing were assessed in both the groups using case sheets. Demographic details like age, gender were recorded. Excel tabulation and SPSS version 23 was used for statistical analysis. Descriptive statistics was done to describe the age and gender of the study population and they were expressed in frequency and percentage. Chi-square t test was used to test the associations between parafunctional habits and TMD; age and parafunctional habits; gender and parafunctional habits and results obtained. In this study, of 102 patients, 54.90% were males and 45.10% were females and the 21-30 years age group had a maximum number of participants (50.98%). TMD was predominantly present (29.41%) in patients with parafunctional habits than in patients without parafunctional habits (22.55%) and the results were statistically significant. (p = 0.001). The association between age and parafunctional habits was statistically not significant (p>0.05). The association between gender and parafunctional habits was statistically not significant (p>0.05). Within the limits of the study, it is evident that there is a strong association between parafunctional habits and Temporomandibular disorders among the dental patients. Thus parafunctional habits can be considered as a risk factor for TMD. It was also observed that there was no significant association of age and gender of the patients with parafunctional habits.

Periodontitis is known as the sixth complication of diabetes mellitus. Alveolar bone loss is one of the major outcomes of periodontitis and diabetes is considered to be the primary risk factors for periodontal disease. Patients with diabetes mellitus have a greater chance of developing destructive periodontal disease as well as greater chance of experiencing progressive alveolar bone loss. The aim of this study is to assess the vertical bone loss sites among diabetic patients with chronic periodontitis. In this study sample size is selected according to inclusion criteria, among patients with both periodontitis and diabetes. Among 10,000 case records evaluated, a total of two hundred diabetic patients had periodontitis who were taken into the study. Vertical bone loss among each patient was assessed from the data retrieved from the dental records of Saveetha Dental College, Chennai. Overall, vertical bone loss was more common in maxillary posteriors than other teeth among diabetic patients with chronic periodontitis. It was commonly seen among males and was profoundly found in the age group of 30 to 50 years. The association between age and gender distribution with vertical bone loss sites was found to be statistically significant.

The loss of alveolar bone may be attributed to various factors such as periodontitis, facial trauma, endodontic pathology and other aggressive steps used during extraction. Socket preservation is a technique in which the extraction sockets were completely filled with a bone substitute material or sealed with membranes in order to prevent bone loss. For a dental practitioner, it is important to have a clear knowledge regarding various bone grafts and membranes used for socket preservation. The aim of the study was to evaluate various bone grafts and membranes used for socket preservation. The participants were patients who reported to Saveetha Dental College for socket preservation procedure. A total of 25 patients had undergone socket preservation procedure during the specified time period. The data were collected and statistical analysis was done using IBM SPSS version 20.0. Patients in the age group of 19-30 years had highly undergone socket preservation procedure. The procedure was carried out mostly in males than females. The most commonly used graft was found to be Bio Oss (60%) and the most commonly used membrane was GTR combined with PRF (48%). Association between site of socket preservation and types of bone graft used was found to be statistically significant ( p-value: 0.001). From the present study, it can be concluded that patients in the age group of 19-30 years had highly undergone socket preservation procedure. The procedure was carried out mostly in males than females. Maxillary anteriors was the most common site. Bio-oss was the most commonly used bone graft and GTR with PRF was the most commonly used membrane among patients who had undergone socket preservation procedure.

Clinical Photography is an important requirement for better clinical diagnosis, treatment planning and case documentation in modern Orthodontics.The primary purpose of dental photography is clinical recording of intra oral and extra oral manifestations. Other secondary uses may be marketing , education , communication, dento legal documentation. Dental photography also improves the quality of care provided and overall status of a dental practice. Main purpose of dental photography in orthodontics is documentation for explaining and demonstrating various stages and processes  involved in  a treatment and to assess the treatment progress. Till date there are no existing surveys on dental photography from a patient's perspective. A cross-sectional questionnaire study was conducted among the patients undergoing orthodontic therapy .The sample size of 300 patients were selected. A close ended questionnaire was used to assess the patient perspective about the dental photographs taken during the orthodontic therapy. A survey software was used to reduce sampling bias.Repeated answers or questioning were avoided. All patients undergoing fixed orthodontic treatment were included in the study. Chi-square tests are applied to find the association between the parameters and the level of significance.Patient  satisfaction and comfort is of utmost importance. Hence changes in the design can be brought about in retractors or mirrors to improve the comfort of the patient during clinical photography. Within the  limits of the study, the result of  the study has shown that there was positive experience regarding dental photography for orthodontic purposes from the majority of the patients.

Diabetes is a lifestyle disease which grows epidemically at an alarming rate. Solomon Berson and Rosalyn Yalow measured how much insulin was in a diabetic’s blood which led to the discovery that some people with diabetes could still make insulin. There is  Type-1 and Type-2 diabetes other than gestational diabetes . Diabetes is a mysterious illness with a wide array of complications. It has become a severe socio-economic burden on the developed and underdeveloped countries. It has been reported that half of the death is due to high blood sugar level. Despite many scientific milestones achieved in providing better healthcare facilities and in the treatment and mitigation of this disease, it still imposes a severe threat in countries with middle and low-level-income groups of population and many patients suffering from diabetes are still unable to achieve desired glycemic level. Recent explorations in drug discovery have opened new avenues in the development of new classes of drugs. Focusing on the emerging trends and advances in the field of diabetes treatment, the review will highlight the recent scientific and technological advancement in the development of newer generations of drugs or regimens over the past few decades.

Tooth eruption is a process whereby the forming tooth migrates from its intraosseous location in the jaw to its functional position within the oral cavity. A variety of eruption problems arise during the transitional dentition period and one such problem is ectopic eruption. Ectopic eruption is a disturbance in the usual course of tooth eruption which may lead to impaction of the said tooth. This study sheds light to all impacted teeth in the oral cavity excluding third molar teeth. The aim of this study is to determine the frequency of impacted teeth excluding third molars that need surgical removal. This is a single centre retrospective study done from June 2019 – March 2020. Out of 786 patients who underwent surgical removal of their impacted teeth, 51 patients were considered for the study based on the inclusion criteria. The parameters examined and processed with relevance to impacted teeth were type of impaction based on tooth and its location of impaction, age and gender of patient. IBM SPSS Version 20 was used for statistical analysis. The most common tooth of impaction excluding third molar impactions was canines accounting for 51% of the total cases. There was a definitive predilection for male over females on the incidence of ectopic impactions (64.7%). The association of age of the patient and tooth of impaction revealed the incidence of canine impaction in the age group of 11-20 years and Para molar impactions in the age group of 21-30 years, which is statistically insignificant as p=0.273>0.05, by Chi square test. This study concludes to establish the predominance of canine impactions that arise in the age group of 11-20 years with gender predilection in males.

Traumatic dental injuries (TDIs) are one of the most serious dental public health problems among children who seek emergency dental treatment. These injuries may influence further tooth growth, resulting in irreversible damage if they occur during the initial stages of development..The aim of the study was to find the prevalence of luxation injury in primary teeth in a university dental clinic in South India , Chennai . The data regarding  pediatric  patients treated for trauma who have visited the hospital during the study periods from june 2019 to march 2020 was retrieved  from the university database, The search resulted with 15 in total of patients who underwent treatments for dental trauma to primary teeth . The age range of the patients included in this study was 3-10 years of age.Data tabulation was carried out in Excel. The data is imported and transcribed in Statistical Package for Social sciences version 16(SPSS,IBM corporation). Descriptive analysis was based on quantitative variables and frequencies for categorical variables. P less than or equal to 0.005 was considered statistically significant with a confidence interval of 95% . A higher prevalence in male(58.3%) children reporting with luxation injuries was compared to female(41.7%) children was observed. The highest prevalence of luxation injuries was subluxation 41.7%, followed by extrusive luxation 25%. It was also observed that female children took less time to report to the clinic when compared to the male children. The increased health awareness and the importance of prevention methods have essentially contributed to the decrease in the prevalence of TDIs, with an increase of subluxation injuries and a male gender prevalence

Orthodontic patients experience pain and discomfort to a varying degree during the course of treatment. One of  the most important goals of orthodontic dental care is helping patients in their attempts to reach an acceptable level of satisfaction with their oral cavity and dentition. Dentofacial problems have known definitive effects on patient satisfaction and comfort with their appliance because it affects esthetics, performance, and function. The aim of this study was to assess the comfort level among various age groups during the orthodontic treatment. A questionnaire comprising 13 questions was created in an online survey platform and the link was shared to the patients . The patient data was collected from the case records of patients visiting Saveetha dental College for treatment. Statistical analysis was done using IBM SPSS software version 20.0.  44% of the respondents feel that their appliance is not at all comfortable and about 32% of the people are embarrassed to wear the appliance in public. Chi-square test was done for the association of gender and embarrassment of wearing appliances in public and the p value 0.001* was found to be statistically significant . This concludes that more male patients feel embarrassed to wear the appliance in public and patients of age group 15-20 years feel that the appliance is more tight , eliciting pain.

Traumatic dental injuries present complex injuries of the dentoalveolar system. Trauma to primary and permanent teeth and their supporting structures is one of the most common dental problems seen in children. The purpose of this study was to analyse the prevalence of  traumatic dental injuries (TDI) in primary and permanent teeth among childrens 2 to 13 years of age visiting the dental hospital in Chennai, in the period of June 2019 - March 2020. Date of age, gender, type of teeth i.e primary or permanent, type of dental injury and the dental treatment were obtained from the records of the dental hospital. The data was analysed using SPSS software. Chi Square Test was performed to compare two proportions. The analysis was done for: age, gender, type of injury, treatment done for the injury in this study. Most common type of dental injury in primary teeth is luxation (26.3%) and in permanent teeth is complicated crown fracture (38.9%). Traumatic dental injury was observed most frequently in the age group of 2 to 3 years in primary teeth and 10 to 11 years in permanent teeth with 68.4% and 69.4% of gender predliction in boys with primary and permanent dentition respectively. In the primary dentition, the most commonly performed treatment was extraction whereas the most common treatment performed in permanent dentition is pulpectomy. The results of this study show that emergency intervention to traumatised teeth is important for good prognosis of teeth and oral tissues. Therefore, the parents should be informed about dental trauma in schools and dental hospital physicians should be subjected to postgraduate training.

Oral Submucous Fibrosis (OSMF) is a potentially malignant disorder and its early diagnosis is essential to reduce malignant transformation into oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) and thereby reduce morbidity and mortality. This study assessed the chewing habits of the patients visiting Saveetha Dental College and Hospitals with regard to consumption of areca nut and its products, frequency and duration of habits as well as clinical symptoms and signs in OSMF. The aim of this study was to associate the habits with clinicopathological findings in OSMF patients. An institutional based  retrospective study was conducted among 64 cases clinically diagnosed with OSMF. A detailed habit history and clinical signs and symptoms were recorded and appropriate statistical analysis was done. The study included 62 OSMF cases of both the gender groups; males (87.5%) and females (12.5%) of age group between 22 to 65 years. In this study, the most common habit was noted to be pan chewing and the commonest clinical symptoms was found to be restricted mouth opening (39%) and associated pain symptoms (28%). A very common clinical site for this lesion was found to be the buccal mucosa bilaterally (79.69%). The habit patterns and clinical features of OSMF are important to facilitate prompt diagnosis and management in order to monitor its clinical severity and progression to OSCC.

Smile is a curve that sets everything straight but a healthy smile needs good dental care.The appearance of the dentition is paramount to a large population seeking dental treatment and often the first evidence of variation from normal in human dentition is an observable difference in the color of the teeth.A thorough knowledge of the etiology of tooth staining is of prime importance to dental practitioners in order to reach a correct diagnosis.. The purpose of this study was to assess the etiology, discoloured surfaces and outcomes of different techniques in terms of patient satisfaction for the management of vital bleaching. A total of 31 case sheets were retrospectively analysed from the university database. It was found that Fluorosis was the most prevalent etiology in about 74.19%, Conventional technique was the most prevalent technique in about 83.87% and Upper anteriors were the most prevalent affected area in about 70.97%. It was also found that in both 16-25 yrs and 26-45 yrs age groups, fluorosis was the most prevalent etiology. In 46+yrs, both fluorosis and stains were equally prevalent, p value-0.102 (p>0.05). It was found that fluorosis was the prevalent etiology in both males(64.52%) and females(9.68%), p-value: 0.395 (p>0.05). For all sites, conventional technique is the most prefered technique, p-value: 0.751(p>0.05). The outcome for both Conventional and Power bleach techniques had prevalence of satisfaction, p-value: 0.342(p>0.05). Within the limitations of the study, we conclude that fluorosis was the most prevalent etiology for vital tooth discolouration.  The discolouration of vital teeth was commonly presented in the upper anterior area followed by both upper and lower anteriors. Outcomes for conventional technique were more satisfactory than thermocatalytic.

Retromolar trigone is a subsite of oral cavity. It is a triangular mucosal area between the ascending ramus of the mandible attached to the muscles of mastication. Only at advanced stages after it involves the mandible or masticatory muscle does it result in severe pain or trismus. Data samples required for study were taken from hospital records. All the collected data were cross verified and compiled together in an excel sheet. Compiled data were statistically analysed in SPSS software. In this study of 27 patients, before treatment about 50% (14) had symptoms of trismus, after treatment out of the 50% of patients with trismus, 35.71% had 2 finger breadth mouth opening (trismus) and the rest of the patients (64.29%) had 3 finger breadth mouth opening.

Development of caries is multifactorial. Caries is a common disease of the tooth which when caught early can be treated by excavation and restoration of the tooth.Clinical and epidemiological studies show a consistent trend of caries prevalence with females having more caries occurrence than males.The aim of the study is to establish an association between gender and filled teeth.A retrospective  study was done based on  data analysed from 86000 patients records collected in a dental outpatient department.Excel tabulation was done and the results obtained from SPSS version 20. Statistical test performed was the chi square test.In the study a total of 4230 patients were included out of  which 2328 were males and 1902 were females. Using the DMFT Index ,filled teeth status was acquired. Patients were grouped into three, based on filled teeth : 0-7,8-15,15-21. On performing chi square test to find an association between gender and filled teeth, a P value of 0.887 was arrived at, which is not significant. Hence within limits of the study, it was found that there was no clinical and statistical association between gender and filled teeth based on DMFT index.

The key to successful endodontic treatment is to thoroughly debride the canal system of infected or necrotic pulp tissue and microorganisms, and to completely seal the canal space, thus preventing the persistence of infection and/or reinfection of the pulp cavity.The aim of this study is to provide clinical data on the prevalence of endodontically treated tooth extractions.
8547 patients visiting Saveetha Dental College were used as the samples in this study to assess the extraction of its  endodontically treated tooth or non endodontically treated tooth with ethical permission and approval for the project. Collected data was tabulated in Excel and statistical analysis was performed using Chi-square test. The results show that endodontically treated tooth extraction is 70% while non endodontically treated tooth extractions is 30% with male predominance. There is no association seen with gender and extractions of endodontically treated tooth tooth extraction statistically.

Perforation results in communication between the root canal walls and the periodontal space. It is commonly caused by operative procedural accidents or due to extensive caries, external and internal inflammatory root resorption . Perforations during a root canal treatment may increase the risk of failure for the involved tooth. The prognosis of a perforated tooth depends on factors like location and the size of the perforation, potential microbial colonization of the endodontic system, the time lapse between the occurrence of the perforation and repair, and the type of filling material used. For the long-term success of the root canal system, it is essential to emphasize disinfection and sterilization at the perforation site and the remaining root canal system. Nonsurgical management is possible with predictable prognosis if the right treatment is planned and executed.The aim of this study was to find the association of age, gender and tooth arch with the site of perforation during access cavity preparation. The data was collected from patients visiting Saveetha dental College for treatment. Totally 41 perforations were identified and treated completely. The data was entered in excel sheet and exported to IBM SPSS software version 20.0 and statistical analysis done. The number of perforations were higher in females and in the age group above 40 years, however no significant association was found for site of perforation with age and gender. Number of coronal perforations were more than furcal perforation and this association between tooth arch and site of perforation was found to be statistically significant (P value- 0.006 < 0.05; Chi square test). Proper knowledge of anatomy and principles of access cavity is essential to prevent these iatrogenic errors.

Coronoplasty is the mechanical elimination of occlusal supracontact that may be present during functional moments. It deals with selective grinding or reducing of occlusal areas with the purpose of influencing mechanical contact, primitive contacts. The aim of the present study was to evaluate and analyse the number of coronoplasty procedures done among patients and the quadrant in which coronoplasty procedure was most prevalent. This study was carried out in a one year period (June 2019 to April 2020) on 56 patients (33 male patients, 23 female patients) who reported to a Private hospital, Chennai. All available data was extracted from an electronic dental record where the patient's case sheet was reviewed and results were obtained through SPSS analysis. From the results obtained 54.7 % males and 45.3 % females had participated in the study. Among the study population, quadrant 3 (42.17 %) had the most number of patients with coronoplasty treatment.Coronoplasty procedures was highest in 31-50 years amongst other age groups and males who underwent coronoplasty were more prevalent compared to females. The study concludes that the number of coronoplasty procedures reported to the hospital where 83 and quadrant 3 had the most number of procedures performed but the study was not statistically significant. Hence to conclude, the results of the present study are useful for generating hypotheses for further research with larger sample size and long term follow ups in order to create awareness about the importance of occlusal adjustment procedures.

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder with  recurrent seizures in patients due to underlying chronic disease.Medications  taken by epileptics can cause gingival enlargement. Gingival enlargement  is aesthetically undesirable and causes difficulty  in  mastication,speech. The aim of the study was to assess the association of age, gender in epileptic patients with gingival enlargement. A retrospective study for presence of gingival enlargement in epileptic patients  was reviewed from patient records and analysing the case sheets between June 2019 and March 2020 in dental outpatient department.Age groups of patients involved in the study are 20-35 years,35-50 years and 50-65 years. Patient age,gender,type of gingival enlargement were also collected. Excel tabulation was done and  results obtained from SPSS version 20. Statistical test performed was  chi square analysis to find the association of gingival enlargement types with age,gender of epileptic patients. 118 case sheets  were studied out of which 70  were females and 48 were Males.Only 8% of the total study group showed epilepsy related drug induced gingival enlargement.Gingival  enlargement of generalised type was seen commonly in males(3.42%)0.063(p>0.05) statistically  not significant,in the age group of  20-35 years(2.85%)P value - 0.696(p>0.05),not statistically significant and localised among both genders in the age group of  20-35 years(1.89%).Periodontal disease was more in generalised gingival enlargement but not significantly associated,p value- 0.788(p>0.05),not statistically significant.Within the limits of the study ,a small percentage of epileptic patients had  drug induced   gingival enlargement.Males showed comparatively higher distribution of generalised gingival enlargement in epileptic patients. Periodontal pathologies were common in epileptic patients with gingival enlargement.

The technology used to make orthodontic products and materials has advanced at an exponential rate. Newer materials, methods, and designs are coming up on a daily basis. These products help the orthodontist to give the best functional and aesthetic results to the patient. Orthodontic brackets have evolved from Angle's era to the MBT brackets followed by lingual brackets. These brackets have made the life of the orthodontists much easier. As technology is advancing many more newer materials and designs are coming forward. The aim of the study was to evaluate the frequency of use of regular metal brackets among patients reporting to dental hospital in chennai, in the period of June 2019- March 2020. The clinical records of 1362 patients undergoing orthodontic treatment were evaluated. The prevalence of patients treated with regular metal brackets according to sex, gender and the different types of orthodontic brackets were assessed. Chi-square test was used to determine associations between variables, while the chi-square test for trends was used to assess the frequency of patients treated with regular metal brackets in comparison to others. The most frequently preferred brackets by patients were the regular metal brackets (99.5%) in comparison to other types of brackets. There was no statistically significant difference in patients treated with regular metal brackets with respect to  age and gender. Thus, it can be concluded that the regular metal brackets are still being widely chosen by patients undergoing orthodontic treatment. Hence, awareness of different types of brackets and their uses should be brought among patients undergoing orthodontic treatment.

The aim is to assess the gender predilection of dental fluorosis among the Chennai population. The retrospective study done using case records of patients. Patients with dental fluorosis were included in this study. Patients who were medically compromised and with other developmental anomalies of teeth were excluded from the study. Data about the dean fluorosis index and demographic details were retrieved from case sheets and tabulated. Analysis of the data was performed using SPSS version 23.0, both descriptive statistics and Chi square tests were performed. The present study showed the dental fluorosis was more prevalent in males (69.20%) than females (30.80%). Among the study population,mild fluorosis(50%) was found to be a more common type of severity of fluorosis followed by moderate fluorosis(30%) and there was significant association between the severity of fluorosis i.e dean fluorosis index and gender (p < 0.05 ) showing statistical significant difference. Within the limits of the present study, it can be concluded that dental fluorosis is more prevalent among males than females. Mild fluorosis was found to be a more common type of severity of fluorosis followed by moderate fluorosis and there was significant association between the severity of fluorosis and gender.

Open apices commonly arise secondary to pulpal necrosis as a result of caries or trauma in an immature tooth with incomplete root formation. The conventional method of apexification with calcium hydroxide has certain disadvantages such as a very long period of treatment, tooth fracture and an incomplete calcification of the bridge. MTA has gained importance as an alternative treatment for management of open apices as it overcomes these disadvantages. The aim of this study was to determine the number, age and gender distribution of MTA apexification done in maxillary incisors.This study included data of 41 patients who had undergone apexification using MTA in maxillary incisors. The data was collected from the case records of patients visiting Saveetha dental College for treatment. A total of 47 teeth that underwent MTA apexification were identified. Of the total subjects, 83% were males and 17% were females. 51.06% of the teeth that underwent MTA apexification belonged to the age group <15 years and 48.04% to the group >15 years. Statistical analysis was done using IBM SPSS software version 20.0. No significant association was found between gender and different age groups in patients that underwent MTA apexification (P value- 0.701 >0.05; Fisher’s exact test). MTA apexification was done predominantly in males in both age groups.

A variety of benign and malignant lesions involve the maxilla and maxillary sinus. The presenting features, symptomatology and advanced diagnostic imaging techniques help in achieving a differential diagnosis however histopathological examination remains the mainstay of definitive diagnosis. This study aims to identify the frequency of isolated maxillary pathologic lesions (benign and malignant)  and its gender and age distribution.  After clearance from the institutional ethical committee, a retrospective study was performed for a period of ten months from June 2019 to March 2020 in our institution. 90 cases of pathology were reviewed out of which 29 were included in the study based on the inclusion criteria. 68.97% males and 31.03% females reported with pathologic lesions of the maxilla alone in our center. Malignant maxillary lesions show the highest frequency of occurrence in 17.24% in the 41-60 age group (p value-0.233). Treatment modalities used for various lesions diagnosed in the maxilla showed the highest degree of association with surgical excision being the most commonly performed for malignant lesions and enucleation for cysts and benign tumors (p value- 0.000). Maxillary benign pathological lesions have a tendency to mimic malignant lesions. Hence it is important to document and identify lesions most commonly encountered in a particular population to provide for adequate and appropriate treatment care needs.

Hypodontia is one of the most common dental anomalies encountered in the normal dental practices which is a major cause for malocclusion among growing teens and requires replacement in adults. Hypodontia occurs due to congenitally missing teeth  and are not found in radiographs. Early diagnosis would help to determine the eruption pattern of the other teeth and help in treatment planning.The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of hypodontia of permanent teeth in the Chennai population. In this retrospective study design, patient case reports were evaluated, of which 6682 patient case sheets which matched the inclusion criteria were selected  for evaluation for congenitally missing teeth and the treatment performed for each case with congenitally missing teeth was evaluated. The data was then tabulated and analysed in SPSS software. Descriptive statistics and Chi square tests were performed. The total percentage of study population with congenitally missing teeth was 0.64%. Mandibular incisors were the most common congenitally missing teeth.The prevalence of congenitally missing permanent teeth in the Chennai population was found to be 0.64% .

Periodontal disease is characterised by the loss of connective tissue attachment induced by the presence of putative periodontal pathogens within the gingival sulcus. The presence of furcation involvement is one clinical finding that can lead to a diagnosis of advanced and severe form of periodontitis and potentially to a less favorable prognosis for the affected teeth. The aim of the study is to assess the various types of furcation defects in hypertensive patients with chronic periodontitis. Among a sample of 42110 patients under the age group of 30 to 90 years in the Chennai population who visited a private dental college, a total of 858 patients who had met the inclusion criteria were selected for the study. Demographic details such as age and sex and grades of furcation involvement for all the patients were recorded. The required data was collected and analysed using SPSS(Statistical Package For The Social Sciences) Software. Chi-square test was used to study association between the parameters. The results were considered to be of statistical significance if p < 0.05. In the present study, there were more males (55.4%) than females (44.6%) in the study population and majority of patients were in the age group of 51-60 years of age (36.5%). Generalised chronic gingivitis (46.17%) was predominantly seen among the subjects followed by generalised chronic periodontitis (35.11%)  and localised chronic periodontitis (18.72%). The association between the age groups and furcation in maxillary and mandibular posteriors, also association between the periodontal disease and furcation in maxillary and mandibular posteriors was evaluated, which was statistically significant.(p < 0.05) Within the limitations of the present retrospective analysis, it can be concluded that chronic periodontitis was more prevalent in hypertensive patients. There was lesser prevalence of furcation defects in maxillary and mandibular posteriors in hypertensive patients with chronic periodontitis. Additionally, grade 2 furcation of maxillary posteriors and grade 1 furcation of mandibular posteriors was most seen in the age group of 51-60 years.

Third molar impaction has become an important clinical issue.The impacted teeth may have many pathologies such as pericoronitis, periodontitis, root resorption, space infection and coronal and root caries. The study was aimed to find the prevalence of pericoronitis in impacted mandibular third molars. This retrospective study was conducted using records of patients visited private dental college. A total of 102 case records with information on impacted mandibular third molar and pericoronitis were retrieved. Data collected  from their records were entered and subjected to statistical analysis. Descriptive statistics and Chi-square association was done to find the prevalence and association between impacted mandibular third molars and pericoronitis. Out of 102 subjects, 87.3% of patients with impacted mandibular third molars had pericoronitis and it was more in males (47.1%) when compared to females (40.2%). It was more prevalent in the age group of 21-30 (57.8%) and in the left mandibular third molar, 38 (51.0%) when compared to the right, 48 (36.3%). There was no significant association of pericoronitis with age, gender, tooth number (p>0.05).Within the limits of the study majority of patients with impacted mandibular third molars had pericoronitis and it was more prevalent in males and in the age group of 17-26 years. Prevalence of pericoronitis was high in the impacted left mandibular third molar compared to the impacted right mandibular third molar.

Tooth wear is generally defined as irreversible chronic loss of dental hard tissues caused by mechanical and/or chemical processes without the involvement of bacterial plaque. To some degree, tooth wear is physiological and age dependent. The aim of the study was to evaluate the prevalence of tooth wear among different age groups of patients visiting private dental hospital. Date of age, gender, type of tooth wear of patients were obtained from the records of the dental hospital.The data was analysed using SPSS software. Chi Square Test was performed to compare two proportions. The analysis was done for: age, gender and the type of tooth wear. The Prevalence rates of tooth wear in dental patients were calculated. The patients were ranged in the age group of 20- 30 years, 31-40 years, 41-50 years and above 50 years. The overall prevalence rate for attrition was seen most commonly in the age group of 31-40 years (43.86%) with higher incidence among males. Patients in the age group of 31-40 years (56.41%) showed highest prevalence for abrasion with higher incidence among males and the prevalence rate for erosion was most commonly observed in the age group of  patients 31-40 years (26.91%) with higher incidence among males which was found to be statistically significant (P<0.05). The study may help in planning patient’s diagnostic protocol and management strategy among dentists.

The squamous cell carcinoma is by far the most commonly found tumour of the oral cavity. This includes the tongue, floor of mouth, retromolar trigone, and lips. The mainstay of treatment for these patients in the surgical resection, neck dissection,radiation,and local nodal basins in the neck. The aim of the study is to investigate the flap design used in Mandibular carcinoma among the patients who visited the Department of oncology between june 1 st 2019- 1st april 2020. Data was extracted by reviewing patient records. Out of 57 patients 22 patients were diagnosed with mandibular carcinoma. There was male predominance with 90.91% followed by females with 9.09%. The age group of 51-60 (50%) followed by 41-50 years (36.36%) was affected by mandibular carcinoma. Buccal carcinoma (77.27%) was the most commonly affected site. Cheek splitting was the most common flap used to excise the carcinoma. (63.64%) followed by lingual-releasing flap(16.16%), lip-splitting flap(9.09%) and visor flap(9.09%). Regarding the site of carcinoma and type of approach used, cheek splitting approach was used predominantly for buccal carcinoma lesions; lingual releasing approach was used to operate retromolar trigone carcinomas; Lip-splitting approach and visor flap approach were used for tongue carcinomas .The association between the design of flap used and site of occurrence of lesion was found to be statistically significant (p value- 0.02).

Gingival enlargement is an increase in the size of the gingiva. It is also known as the gingival hyperplasia or hypertrophy. They can be categorised based on their etiology, pathogenesis, location, size and extent. Inflammatory gingival enlargement is a most common form and clinically present as soft and discolored gingiva. Drug induced gingival enlargement is a well recognised adverse effect of certain systemic medications. Calcium channel blockers, Anticonvulsants and Immunosuppressants are frequently implicated drugs in the etiology of drug induced enlargement. The aim of the study is to assess the prevalence of gingival enlargement and its distribution.
Objective:

To assess the prevalence of inflammatory and drug induced enlargement.
To compare the prevalence of gingival enlargement in different age groups.
To compare the prevalence of gingival enlargement in male and female.
To compare the prevalence of gingival enlargement in response to different types of drugs.

The study was a retrospective, University based study. Case sheets of patients visiting the dental outpatient ward June 2019 to March 2020 were collected. Patients diagnosed with gingival enlargement were sorted and tabulated in Microsoft excel sheet and analysed using SPSS software. In the present study, out of 40,000 patients, the prevalence of inflammatory enlargement was found to be 0.1% and the drug induced enlargement was 0.03%. Drug induced enlargement was more prevalent in males than in females, whereas inflammatory enlargement was more prevalent in females than males, there was no statistically significant difference in the prevalence rate between age groups (p= 0.362) and gender (p= 0.210). On comparing the drugs, phenytoin was consumed by  one third of the population (43%) but had a higher prevalence rate of 65% than antihypertensive drugs (28% )and immunosuppressants (7% ).

Traumatic injuries to permanent teeth in Pediatric patients must occur in the maxillary anterior tooth region and is one of the most common causes of visit to the dentist in emergency situations. Visiting the dentist following any trauma to the permanent teeth is of at most importance and their early management will help in managing any serious problems that may occur if left untreated. The retrospective study was conducted among patients who visited an institution in Chennai. The patients records were reviewed and the data of patients who visited between June 2019 to March 2020 were analysed. 2030 Pediatric patients who visited the dentist following traumatic injury to permanent teeth were included in the study. Retrospective analysis was done based on the collected data. Statistical analysis was performed in SPSS Software, data was analysed by descriptive and inferential statistics. 41.7% of patients reported with a chief complaint of fractured teeth. Males were most affected by traumatic injury (70.6%). The 12-17 years age group was most affected in the maxillary anterior region (55.90%). From this study we were able to conclude that fractured teeth was the most common chief complaint among patients reporting with traumatic injury and they complained of aesthetics being the most common concern. 12-17 years was the common age group affected by traumatic injury and the most component region to be affected was the maxillary anterior region. Males were most commonly associated with traumatic injuries then when compared to females. Patients with fractured teeth were the most common chief complaint and they visited the dentist within 1 year of the injury. It was seen that patients with ellis class 3 fracture was the most common traumatic injury and they visited the dentist within 1 year of the injury.

Frictional keratosis represents increased keratin production in response to chronic mechanical irritation. The retromolar pad and edentulous alveolar ridge are the most common sites of involvement due to trauma from food being crushed against the mucosa during mastication. A fractured tooth or rough restoration may lead to the development of frictional keratosis on the adjacent lateral tongue or buccal mucosa.These lesions do not undergo malignant change and should resolve after the source of irritation is eliminated. The aim of the study was to investigate the association of a third molar eruption with frictional keratosis among the patients of Saveetha dental college. A total of 200 patients with keratosis were taken into the study from Saveetha Dental College, Chennai. The data was collected from case sheets of patients who reported for various dental treatments between the period of June 2019 to March 2020 which consists of patients' demographic data, personal history, medical history, intra and extraoral findings and photographs which are taken with patients' concern. Chi square test was done using SPSS..The results showed 20-30 year old patients were seen maximum with all the reported clinical findings.This proportion decreases with increase in age groups.Maxillary third molars had maximum number of buccoverted teeth (18 - buccoverted 21% and sharp cusp 3%) (28- buccoverted 9.5% and sharp cusp 6.5%) and mandibular third molars were reported with maximum number of sharp cuspal tips (38-35% sharp cusp and 5% buccoverted)(48- 9% sharp cusp and 1.5% buccoverted).Within the limitations of the study, the results show that buccoverted third molars are the most common reason that causes frictional keratosis followed by sharp cuspal tips and cheek biting habits. However tobacco pouch keratosis is also seen among the patients.

The developmental defects of the enamel (DDE) may be the alternation of enamel that may affect an area of one surface or may be widespread affecting all the surface of the teeth. Early diagnosis of developmental defects of the enamel can prevent the child from having an impact on oral health. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of developmental defects of enamel in children visiting a university hospital in the Chennai population. This was a retrospective study done under a University setting. It was seen that 334 patients had Developmental Defects of Enamel. The data was collected from June 2019 to March 2020. The data was tabulated and entered in excel and the data was analysed using SPSS package software. The overall prevalence of the DDE was found to be 47%. The most common deformity was Hypoplasia (24.3%) and the least common deformity was Molar Incisal Demineralisation and Amelogenesis Imperfecta (0.9%). The most common tooth affected was maxillary left central incisor (5.1%) and the least common deformity was found in mandibular right first premolar and primary dentition (0.3%). There was a statistically significant association between DDE and  buccal surface of teeth. It indicates the need for educating the population about the risk factors for the DDE.

Circulating level of C - reactive protein depicts the cardiovascular condition. By reviewing available studies, the current study determines that CRP level ( c- reactive protein level ) within the upper quantile of the normal range constitutes an increased risk for cardiovascular events or diseases. CRP levels within the upper quartile/quintile of the traditional range indicates increased risk for cardiovascular events. High CRP levels in acute myocardial infarct after treatment shows an alarming sign. This is due to the response of the body to the inflamed atherosclerotic (coronary) vessels and adjacent myocardium. Localized CRP in infarcted myocardium activates the complement system, resulting in inflammation and thrombosis. After reviewing many literatures with correlation between CRP and cardiovascular disease, the current study explains the pathogenesis and its role in diagnosing myocardial infarction. The background of this current study may provide directions for prevention of cardiovascular events.

Congenitally missing teeth or as usually called hypodontia, is a highly prevalent and common developmental dental anomaly where there is congenital absence of one or more teeth. It is the most prevalent dental malformation in humans that could affect and influence the orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning.  Besides an unfavorable appearance, patients with missing teeth may suffer from malocclusion, periodontal damage, insufficient alveolar bone growth, reduced chewing ability, inarticulate pronunciation and other problems.The purpose of this retrospective study was to assess the prevalence and gender distribution of hypodontia in maxillary teeth, excluding the third molars. Orthopantomogram of orthodontic patients above the age group of 14 years were examined for evidence of hypodontia. The casts were used as an additional means of confirming the diagnosis. Retrospective data of patients were collected and those patients who had missing teeth were first segregated. From among those the patients details with congenitally missing teeth were then sorted. 15 patients with congenitally missing teeth excluding third molars were found fulfilling all the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The data was analysed using SPSS statistical software, descriptive and analytical statistics was done with Chi square test. It was observed that hypodontia of maxillary teeth was more predominant in maxillary lateral incisors (n-12;80%)followed by maxillary premolars (n-2;13.4%) and canines(n=1;6.7%).Occurrence of hypodontia was more predominant in females(53.3%) when compared to males (46.7%) (p>0.05); hence statistically not significant. Early diagnosis and appropriate management might help in the attainment of ideal occlusion without the need for extensive orthodontic therapy

Novel interactions and effective modelling of the immune function is necessary for the development of antiviral mechanisms against the infectious viral disease . The immune system is intrinsic to health and is variable in humans due to the heritable and non-heritable influences. The key to identifying the risk of immune mediated and infectious diseases must be to understand and know the human immune system. The main components that develop immune responses include natural killer cells, cytokines, vaccines, Helper T cells. The cytokine and the chemokines play a crucial role in the induction of the antiviral mechanisms thereby deteriorating the level of viral replication. The natural killer cells are effector cells of the innate immune systems. The helper T cells play a pivotal role in inducing cell mediated immunity. The plasmid DNA vaccines  induce strong and long lasting humoral (antibodies) and cell mediated (T- helper cell , other cytokine function cells and cytotoxic T cells), immune response without creating a risk of infection to the host's immune system. The cell mediated immunity is a type of immune response that involves the activation of the phagocytes, cytotoxic T-lymphocytes and various cytokines in response to the antigen without the production of antibodies. The mucosal immune system is an adaptive immune system associated with mucosal sites such as the gut mucosa that comprises Peyer's patches, cryptopatches, isolated lymphoid follicles in the gut antimesenteric wall, and the mesenteric lymph nodes. The aim of the review is to highlight the various antiviral defense mechanisms to boost the immunity.

Space maintainers are the most commonly used appliance for interceptive orthodontics. Space maintainer is mainly used when there is premature loss of deciduous molar to eliminate or reduce the severity of developing malocclusion.The aim of this study was to evaluate the acceptance of space maintainer in paediatric patients undergoing extraction of early loss of primary teeth. This study included children below the age of 9 years, both male and female, reported to Saveetha Dental College between June 2019 to March 2020 with the history of primary tooth extraction. Inclusion criteria included paediatric patients below 9 years of age who were indicated for space maintainers. Exclusion criteria included adult patients, medically-compromised patients, patients with special care needs and patients with congenital missing teeth. A total of around 1700 patient records were reviewed and analysed for the inclusion criteria and the following parameters were gathered; patients' age,  gender, patients acceptance towards space maintainer and type of space maintainer given. Data was recorded in Microsoft Office Excel (2013) and analysed using SPSS Software Version 26.0. Chi-square test was done to find out correlation between variables. Significant level test was set at p<0.05. The results proved that a total of 702 children indicated for space maintainers. Acceptance of space maintainer was observed in 10.3% of patients.Statistically significant association was found in acceptance of space maintainer between age groups (p<0.05). Within the limits of this study, it is concluded that 10.3% acceptance of space maintainer was found among patients. Children with 6 years of age had a favourable acceptance towards space maintainers. The deleterious effect in non acceptance space maintainer and awareness about the preventive orthodontics should be instilled among parents and children.

The terms 'Human resource management' and 'Human resources’ have generally supplanted the term 'personnel management' and furthermore consider it as a cycle which is associated with dealing with the associations. Human Resource Management is the way toward enlisting the up-and-comers, choosing the correct candidate for particular job, accepting representatives, providing orientation, training and development, assessing the presentation of workers, choosing remuneration and giving advantages, propelling workers, keeping up legitimate relations with workers and their worker's organizations, motivating employees , ensuring employees safety, welfare and health measures of the employees. The objectives of HR in an organisation are as follows: Understand the scope of human resource management (HRM),explain what human resource management is and how it relates to the management process. Many organisations are managing with the Covid-19 coronavirus widespread by ordering or empowering representatives work from domestic all over the world. As the coronavirus spreads, working from domestic is the unused typical for specialists. Representative help programs (EAPs) will be important sources of organizational bolster to help representatives going through challenging times and progress their well- being and resilience. Again, a look on the Net of Science uncovers exceptionally few thoughts about EAPs in Asian nations. This activated organizational reactions such as decentralizing their operations and moving workers out of base camp, particularly in the event that found in huge urban ranges. This in turn driven to organizations re-examining their recompense arrangements to superior reflect emolument levels related with the nearby work showcase. A survey has been collected from the HR professionals from various organisations regarding the various challenges that have been faced by them during pandemic and in post pandemic and to find out the most influencing factors among the various challenges.

Cervical abrasion is the wear of the hard tissues in the neck of the tooth, produced by a constant frictional mechanical process. Clinically, cervical abrasion initially appears as a small horizontal groove near the cementoenamel junction. Later , on progression ,  the walls form a wedge with polished glassy surfaces. These lesions usually have a multi-causal origin. Dental abrasion is most commonly seen at the cervical necks of the teeth, but can also occur in the interdental area from vigorous and incorrect use of dental floss. Toothbrush abrasion has long been held as the prime cause of cervical abrasions. Mild cervical abrasions can be restored , whereas deep cervical lesions have to be treated endodontically or extracted based on the prognosis of the tooth. The aim of the study was to determine the number and teeth distribution of cervical abrasions requiring root canal treatment and to evaluate its association with age and gender. Totally 115 patients who had cervical abrasions with pulpal involvement visiting Saveetha dental College for treatment were included in the study. A total of 173 teeth with cervical abrasions requiring endodontic treatment were identified. Data tabulated in excel sheet and exported to IBM SPSS software version 20.0. The results showed that more than half the teeth affected were the premolars (56.07%). Males  and population in the age group 40-60 years had more number of teeth with cervical abrasions requiring root canal treatment. A significant association was found for the type of teeth affected with age  (P value- 0.030 >0.05; Fisher’s exact test) but not with gender(P value- 0.219 >0.05; Chi square test). Early diagnosis and intervention can prevent the progress of the cervical lesion.

Journal of Contemporary Issues in Business and Government, 2020, Volume 26, Issue 2, Pages 1123-1142

Civil society played significant role in strengthening democracy and good governance. The purpose of the current paper was to analyses the effectiveness of the civil society and examine the relationship between the dependent (civil society effectiveness) and independent variables (civic engagement, civic participation, civic association, and co-operation/ partnership). A survey questionnaire was distributed to all the seven categories of participants, and in response of 650 questionnaires 600 were received back. For empirical verification, in depth statistical tests were applied, including Standard Regression, Structural Equation Model (SEM), One Sample T-test, and correlation to test various assumptions of the study. Statistical analysis revealed that independent variables significantly contributed to the dependent variable. This study signifies the impact of independent variables (civic engagement, civic participation, civic association, and co-operation/ partnership) to achieve the effectiveness of civil society. Along with this, both (national and international) databases have been used for the qualitative analysis. Therefore, databases and survey results showed similar results. This research revealed that civil society does not hold good history in Pakistan. Both civilian and military dictators did not give free space to the civil society in the country. This showed that civil society organizations had a limited political space in the country. Therefore, CSOs have limited impact on policy making and implementation. We recommend that civil society should move beyond the awareness raising to mitigate the conditions conducive to spread of terrorism and extremism, which include marginalization, injustice, and violation of human rights, lack of rule of law, fragile democratic culture, and poor governance.

COVID-19 has resulted in national lockdown in various countries which has resulted in most citizens of those countries to remain at home. With the lack of social interaction and increase of boredom, children are extremely prone to be irritated and agitated. This can result in bruxism which is clinically manifested by clenching of teeth. Though not life threatening, bruxism can result in various deleterious effects which can affect the quality of life of individuals. Many children who have bruxism have been known to continue the habit as they become adults, resulting in unwanted visits to the hospital. This can be possible only if doctors, parents and children have knowledge about bruxism. With stress and strain increasing during the spread of COVID-19, there is a high chance that most practioners and parents have missed out in identifying bruxism in children. Parents themselves have been found to be anxious and occupied with “work at home” which can result in them being occupied and paying less attention to their children as the workspace and home space have been merged into one area which was not so common before the emergence of COVID-19. Hence this review was undertaken to illustrate how various factors which have become the ‘new normal’ due to COVID-19 can result in sleep bruxism in children

Bruxism is a disorder characterized by grinding and clenching of teeth which may be due to various etiological factors. Though various etiological factors have been associated, the exact cause is known. Stress has been positively associated with bruxism. The prevalence of bruxism is seen to be high in children and reduces with age. The lockdown imposed due to COVID-19 has been stressful for children and parents with the introduction of work from home for parents. This study was initiated to find if work from home is a stress factor for children with bruxism. An online survey link was shared to 156 parents of 6–8-year-old children who visited the department of pedodontics and preventive dentistry. 111 parents responded to the survey. 71.2% of the parents found their children to be stressed of which 30.4% believed online classes and the lack of parental interaction due to work from home caused stress. 71.2% of the parents believed that consultation was necessary despite of lockdown. Within the limits of the study it has been found that work from home can be considered as a stress factor for children with sleep bruxism

The enormous rise in information technology (IT) usage has benefited human in numerous ways in recent years. Meanwhile, it also increases power consumption that deleteriously affects the natural resources. Environmental awareness focuses on the utilization of green Information technology (GIT) among consumers. The current article aims to examine the behaviour to use GIT based on planned behaviour theory (TPB). The data collected from university students who were familiar with GIT. Personality trait conscientiousness included as a moderator in the research model.  The findings through the statistical technique of partial least square structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM) revealed that green attitude, subjective norm, and perceived behaviour control significantly impact the intention to use GIT. While conscientiousness significantly moderates the relationships between green attitude and intention to use GIT. The present study provides several implications by extending the TPB theory through the moderating effect of conscientiousness and further delivering guidelines to policymakers in higher education institutes to improve students' personality traits for better intention towards using green information technology.

The pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease (CVD) includes inflammation which ultimately leads to the development of atherosclerosis and thrombosis. Increasing evidence supports oral infections and in particular the common periodontal diseases, to be associated with CVD development. Periodontal infections are common worldwide and in moderate to mild form in about 35% population according to the World Health Organization. The aim of this study is to present a brief review of recent literature available on the association of red complex pathogens in development of CVD. A brief description of oral bacteria, periodontal diseases, atherosclerosis, underlying pathophysiology has been included. There is growing evidence on the association of periodontal diseases and CVD as given by epidemiological studies. The relationship between periodontal red complex pathogens and CVD deserves further research because of its consequences for public health.

The dietary lipids have a significant job in tweaking the onset of autoimmunity, cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Several studies have been led to build up the adverse impacts of saturated fats in humans and animals. The intake of oils containing both monounsaturated omega-9 and polyunsaturated fats in essentially emerging over certain nations. Yet, the increased uptake of certain vegetable oils of ω-6 series is anyway to be seen as proinflammatory and it is one of the potential causes for the steady ascent in some malignant tumors, rheumatoid arthritis and autoimmune disease that are basically caused because of the increased production of proinflammatory cytokines. Diets dependent on ω-6 enhanced oils can elevate the level of linolenic acid in tissue phosphoglycerides and can lessen cholesterol levels. Yet these lipids tend to increase unnecessary rise of arachidonic acids. In contrast, ω-3 fatty acids-enriched fish oils or omega-3 precursors from certain vegetable oils are found to give protection against cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer and against the seriousness of some viral diseases.

The Temporomandibular joint acts like a sliding hinge, connecting the jawbone to the skull. A temporomandibular disorder can cause pain in the jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement. Some people who have jaw pain also tend to clench or grind the teeth called bruxism.
Injury to the jaw, the joint, or the muscles of the head and neck can lead to temporomandibular disorders. Stress, which causes tightening of facial and jaw muscles or clenching of teeth can also be one of the most common reasons for temporomandibular disorders.The aim of this study is to check the prevalence of Myofascial pain dysfunction syndrome and Disc Condyle disorders in patients suffering from Temporomandibular disorders. Data from 86000 patients visiting Saveetha Dental College during the time period of June 2019 to March 2020 were reviewed and the data was collected. The data was taken from the category - temporomandibular disorders. A total of 61 patients were taken and analysed for MPDS and Disc condyle disorders. The results were tabulated and analysed using SPSS software by IBM. Out of 61 patients, 57.4%of them had disc condyle disorder, 34.4% had MPDS, 3.3% of them had Degenerative disorder and 4.9% of the patients did not show any disorder. The prevalence of disc condyle disorder is much higher than myofascial pain dysfunction syndrome.

Air pollution is one of the major problems of recent decades which has a serious toxicological impact on human health and the environment. Air pollution is defined as all destructive effects of any sources which contribute to the pollution of the atmosphere or deterioration of the ecosystem. Air pollution is caused by both human interventions and/or natural phenomena. Air pollution is a mixture of solid particles and gases in the air. It is a type of environmental pollution that affects the air and is usually caused by smoke or other harmful gases. The sources of pollution vary from small units of cigarettes and natural sources such as volcanic activities to large volume of emission from motor engines of automobiles and industrial activities. During this lockdown period, there was a dramatic decrease in air pollution in different parts of the world. This is primarily due to lockdown of industrial establishments. The impact of human civilization during the pandemic provides evidentiary data. There was significant improvement in global air pollution.
The aim of this review is to understand the correlation between COVID-19 lockdown and its impact on air pollution.

Body is a biological clock where the cyclic process that occurs within every twenty four hours is called circadian rhythm. Circadian rhythms are autonomous . Circadian rhythm helps to diagnose the onset and severity of the disease. Circadian rhythms are lost due to systemic inflammation. These rhythms  are created and maintained by interactive positive and negative transcriptional and translational feedback loops. The understanding of how peripheral clocks drive physiology is relatively poor. Hence this study is done to identify when blocks occur during peak flow of circadian rhythms and to reduce the inflammation. The aim of this study is to determine the influence of circadian rhythms on lungs function and sleep cycle of normal healthy subjects The study is based on cross sectional analysis.  A survey was conducted among random populations to study the influence of circadian rhythm on lung functions and sleep wake cycle using a questionnaire named morningness and eveningness scale.. The questionnaire was distributed through an online survey link (i.e) google forms. Nearly 150 members participated in it. The results were collected and statistically analysed through spss software , version 22 and  frequency and percentage analysis was used to present  the data . Statistical analysis used was chi square test and the significance value was fixed at p<0.05 . The results showed that participants had difficulty in getting up from sleep with poor appetite.  They felt more alert in the evening   even till 11 PM. Evaluation on respiratory function revealed that most of the participants were normal , but in a few breathing difficulty was more pronounced in early mornings.The present study concluded that circadian rhythms influences lung function and breathing pattern which was assessed by the self developed questionnaire and morningness eveningness scale analysis showed that circadian variation also influences their sleep and wake patterns in normal subjects.

Coronavirus disease COVID-19 is an infectious disease, first discovered in China. This outbreak of 2019 novel virus disease in China spread quickly worldwide. In 2002 the humankind first witnessed SARS-COV, and COV was believed to be zoonotic. The source of origination and transmission are important to determine and understand the virus and to discover new preventive strategies. Coronavirus being a highly mutable virus made it difficult for the discovery of the vaccine. Most of the people infected experience mild to moderate respiratory illness. Other common symptoms include fever, cough, and myalgia or fatigue. Some patients may have a headache or hemoptysis and can be relatively asymptomatic. The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is to be aware of the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes, and how it transmits. The government has taken various health measures against the COVID19 outbreak like practising respiratory etiquette, quarantining and social distancing, practising 1m apart, use of personal protective equipment, hand hygiene, water sanitation, and hygiene, waste management, surface infection, hospital and home isolation, mental health management, immunization and ban on smoking and travel restrictions. The government thus implemented these measures and it is the role of every citizen to follow these measures and pave the way for a better living.

The Coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic is very worrying for global public health. This pandemic fallout highlights how the failure in the urban ruling caused a social impact of threats facing the world. Despite all the threats, the well to do urban settlements manage to get through the difficulties with public benefits, education, and all other necessities of life and despite this progress seen in humanity, slum dwellers lack even the most basic public services i.e access to clean water and sanitation. Such unsanitary conditions due to failure of extension of cleaning sewage in clustered slum areas like in Chennai, the COVID-19 will take a toll and lead to massive community spread. The congestion has currently led to an easy spread and if not controlled by the people themselves with precautionary measures, the disease rate may doubly rise. It is therefore very much necessary to spread awareness regarding the massive pandemic COVID -19 to slums in Chennai as the control of the spread becomes impossible without each and everyone's support.

Smiling is one of the important factors of life that creates an impression on a person. Being dentally aesthetic and physically well presentable boosts your confidence on a higher level. Yet this might be affected by certain habits during the growth of permanent teeth. Prevalence of malocclusion and misalignment is higher in adolescent children, thereby the confidence might get hit. The aim of this study is to see how much importance is given to dental aesthetics by young adults. The study subjects were 165 young adults aged 12-20 years, where they answered a questionnaire of 11 questions dealing with dental aesthetics and its psychological impact. Statistical  analysis (Chi-square) was run on the data collected using SPSS software version 23. The results showed that even in such a competitive world to stand out from the crowd most people still chose to flaunt their flaws and lead a happy life and be successful. The results of the survey showed that there is no significant relationship between misalignment and mental wellness on the respondents. It also showed that the respondents did not find any impact in their professional or personal success due to the incidence of misalignment.   The future scope of this study is that it would create awareness among people on the effect of dental aesthetics on a person and change the behavior/ way of treating people.

COVID-19 is a major disaster that has occurred in the year 2020. Most natural disasters are more common among developed countries, but Coronavirus affects almost all countries. Evidence states that this originated in Wuhan, China. It is a respiratory infection that has its rate of spread higher than all other diseases in this world. The symptoms of this disease are fever, cough, sore throat, difficulty in breathing, and many other respiratory problems. All these make it difficult for a person affected with Coronavirus to survive. To date, no effective vaccine has been found to combat this lethal virus, or even medicine has been discovered to cure this disease. Hydroxychloroquine is just a drug for temporary use and it doesn’t cure the disease. Preventive measures have to be followed to reduce its spread.  Quarantine is one among them, that is keeping yourself away from others and staying home, social distancing and washing your hands is very important. The lockdown initiated by the government has to be strictly followed to reduce the rate of spread. All these measures have to be taken to prevent the reappearance of this deadly disease. It's a tragedy that has shaken the entire world. Considerations have to be given to cardiovascular insurance during treatment for COVID-19. A favorable line can be used in severe cases when indicated, but its efficacy needs further evaluation.

COVID 19 is due to SARS-CoV2 and has a  vital role as a  causative agent of a potentially fatal disease which targets the human respiratory system.  Generalized additive models are used to explore the effect of diurnal temperature, humidity on COVID 19. COVID 19 has played a crucial role in revitalizing the Earth causing enticed changes worldwide. Efforts have been made to prioritize investments for adopting a shift to cleaner energy alternatives, thereby sustaining human lives. COVID 19 has a positive impact on the global climatic conditions making it favorable for the inhabitants. There is a significant reduction in the level of greenhouse gas emissions, the use of fossil fuels, coal, non-renewable resources, relative humidity, air pollution. The global calamity has led to a serious threat to human lives. To control the pandemic, special attention and efforts are taken to protect the person-to-person transmission. Social distancing must be maintained to prevent the spread of the disease. The only treatment option available is using broad-spectrum antiviral drugs such as  nucleoside analogs and also HIV-protease inhibitors that can alter the viral infection until the special antiviral agents are invented. The study aims to explore the associated climatic changes due to COVID-19.

Impression making for completely edentulous patients is one of the critical factors in determining the success or failure of complete denture therapy. Precise reproduction of an edentulous foundation is essential for removable prosthesis retention, stability, and support. Evidence indicates that materials and methods differ in the way impressions are produced for complete dentures. An online survey involving 100 individuals by random sampling method which included Prosthodontics Postgraduates, Undergraduates, and General Practitioners from different locations in India after getting proper consent from the participants about various impression techniques performed for completely edentulous patients. The results were collected and then analyzed through SPSS software. Descriptive statistical analysis was carried out and the chi-square test was  used and the p-value was calculated. This survey analysis has provided a clear view about the impression techniques and practices followed by Dental Practitioners in the process of taking an impression for completely edentulous patients which included theory followed during impression making, primary impression-tray, border molding material, primary and final impression material, border molding material, correction material, use of the custom tray, tissue stop, spacer, posterior palatal seal, flabby tissue and neutral zone for the taking of better impressions for completely edentulous patients. The present study about the knowledge and practice of impression techniques followed by Indian Dental Practitioners has provided a clear view about the current procedures undertaken by them and also provides a better view to improving certain procedures and techniques for the betterment of patients in future

A Concise Review on Calcified Canals - A Review

A calcified canal is a root canal system complication due to hard tissue deposition which makes the canal narrower. Calcification is uncontrolled due to enzyme failure that could result in reduced blood supply to the tissue. Canal calcification is usually termed as an obliteration of the pulp canal. Pulp canal obliteration (PCO) or calcific metamorphosis as sequelae of dental trauma may also occur as sequelae of aging, dental caries, tooth loss or critical pulp therapy, orthodontic care. Extreme physiologic PCO in geriatric patients can arise from secondary or tertiary dentine apposition. Despite the application of high-magnification and cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) imaging, access cavity preparation for such cases is prone to procedural errors that may result in substantial loss of dentin structure, thus reducing the long-term prognosis. With the aid of advanced technology, early detection of canal obliteration will save a lot of frustrations. Early intervention as a prophylactic measure may not be reasonable, due to the low incidence of such teeth developing periapical pathosis. Hence, it is important to explain prophylactic action, if intended. Upon failure of other treatment modalities surgical intervention may be a possibility. Given the difficulty in its management, it is recommended that teeth showing signs of obliteration be referred to an Endodontist who can handle such cases with minimal errors in conjunction with specialist training, magnification, proper equipment, and detailed knowledge of dental anatomy, thereby providing a better prognosis. This analysis assists in information about the calcified canals about their etiology, possible modes of growth, diagnosis, and management, thereby helping to provide better treatment quality.

The COVID-19 is a pandemic disease that is transmitted by contamination through the droplets spewed from the infected patient to the common people. Research and Examination on coronavirus are required to provide knowledge on Covid-19 among Dentists and to educate dental practitioners on the importance of spread on COVID -19 transmission. This study raises awareness among the dentist and dental students to prevent the spread of COVID -19 disease to common people. A survey-based self-structured questionnaire was prepared with 15 questions using a random sampling method and was circulated among 100 dental students and dentists through an online portal link. The results were collected and then analysed through SPSS software. Descriptive statistical analysis was carried out and chi square test was  used and p value was calculated.  The results prove that 53.7% of the dentists want the dental treatments to be carried out, with 94% of the dentists agreeing to use facemask and 94.4 % agreeing to use sanitisers while carrying out procedures. However, 61% of the dentists have expressed their concerns in communicating with the patients soon after the reopening of the clinics.From this study, it was concluded that since the p value was more than 0.05 with respect to anxiety levels in dentists, use of sanitisers for protection,preventive measures taken by dentists and choice of dental treatments carried out, there is no significant statistical difference that has been analysed. Thus the dentist’s role in COVID-19 spread is represented and awareness is created among dentists and dental students and the steps followed by the dentists to prevent the spread  of COVID-19 was observed.

COVID-19 also known as SARS-COV-2 is a pandemic disease. It is a single-stranded RNA virus. The impact of the COVID-19 outbreak leads to physical distancing and lockdown intervention, such as extended school closures and workplace distancing. Medical practitioners play a major role in this pandemic COVID-19 as they are more prone to infection. To create awareness of irony social distancing and the role of medical practitioners during pandemic COVID-19 among the worldwide population. The survey is conducted among three groups of populations. Self structured questionnaires were prepared and circulated through an online portal, then the data collected, and results were tabulated. The results were collected and then analysed through SPSS software. Descriptive statistical analysis was carried out and chi square test was  used and p value was calculated.  The results show that all(100%) are aware of social distancing, but 90.67% of the medical practitioners are working in elucubration against the pandemic. From this survey analysis, there were significant statistical differences (p value <0.05) with respect to practising social distancing, creating public awareness by medical practitioners and awareness among medical professionals. Insignificant statistical differences (p value >0.05) were seen with respect to healthy lifestyle, interaction of public and medical practitioners parameters. It has been concluded that most of them were aware of the pandemic of COVID -19 and the irony of social distancing  but not followed by many of the people. So, Awareness has been created on the irony of social distancing and the role of medical practitioners and the severity of the disease among the population worldwide.

Mutation in Virus and Genetic Alteration in Viruses - A Review

YAZHLINI P; DR. MURALIDHARAN. N.P; DR.JAYALAKSHMI SOMASUNDARAM

Journal of Contemporary Issues in Business and Government, 2020, Volume 26, Issue 2, Pages 1395-1404

The remarkable capacity of some viruses to adjust and adapt to a new host and environment is highly dependent on the capacity to generate de Novo diversity in a short period. Rates of spontaneous mutation shift abundantly among viruses. RNA viruses change quicker than DNA viruses, single-stranded virus transforms quicker than double standard infection and genome size seems to connect adversely with transformation rate. Viral change rates are equalised at various stages, like polymerase fidelity, Sequence content, template secondary structure, cellular microenvironment, application mechanism, proofreading and post replication repair. The mutation rate of an organism is defined as the probability where a change in genetic information is passed to the next generation. In viruses, a generation is often defined as a cell infection cycle, which includes an attachment to the cell surface, entry, gene expression, replication, encapsidation, and release of infectious particles. Also, enormous quantities of changes can be presented by some virus-encoded diversity generating elements, as well as by host-encoded cystine/ adenosine deaminase. Our recent knowledge on viral change rates explains that viral hereditary variety is determined by multiple viruses and host interaction and the viral mutation rates can evolve in response to specific selective pressures.

Climatic changes are the totality of the climatic variability and changes which consists of it’s descriptions, causes, implications and interactions. In the last 5 decades, human activities, particularly the burning of fossil fuels have released sufficient quantities of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases and this trap the additional heat in the lower atmosphere which therefore affect the global climate and temperature. Each of these effects have caused significant changes in the human health cycle and causes harm to our body and environment Around 40 articles from online databases like Pubmed and Google Scholars are taken. The articles which are related to the topic are taken. The relevant articles are taken and discussed. The various effects of climate changes are discussed. The direct and indirect changes, effect on infectious diseases, population and the major risk factors are assessed. The climatic changes are the mainstream issue of today’s generation. Potentially huge health defects affect the society and people in it. Hence measures should be taken to prevent climatic changes and global warming.

Handwashing is thought to be effective for the prevention of transmission of infectious pathogens. Scientific studies have shown that after hand washing 80 % of individuals retain some pathogenic bacteria on their hands. The purpose of handwashing is to remove potentially harmful organisms from hands preventing the transmission from person to person. Handwashing with non-antibacterial soap and sanitizer was more effective for the removal of bacteria in the prevention of transmission of infectious diseases. Effective handwashing with soap requires reliable access to the quality of water used. The antimicrobial antibacterial, antiviral efficacy of alcohol-based hand sanitizers and soap were compared. The use of soaps for hand hygiene appeared to be less efficacious against Gram-negative organisms. The comparative study addresses the feasibility and health impacts of promoting hand sanitizer as an alternative hand hygiene option for which water-constrained environments should be assessed. However, both hand sanitizers and soaps can be used as effective measures to control the spread of diseases.

The pandemic of coronavirus has affected millions. The fast spreading virus has to be controlled and preventive measures should be taken. Since there is no vaccine or cure, sanitisers are 99.9% effective against germs and can kill SARS-COV2 by attacking its envelope. Usage of sanitiser is extremely important for the control of spread of coronavirus, and so, people should accordingly stock up on it. A survey questionnaire of 15 questions was conducted to test the awareness of properties of sanitisers and to encourage people to use them, among 100 random sample size belonging to the urban background. Majority of the people think that sanitisers are a convenient and effective way of fighting germs. Since they know that clean hands are the first line of defence in fighting infections, they use it often and accordingly stock up on PPE. Majority of people know the important facts about sanitisers and have started using them. Most people think that sanitisers are useful in controlling the spread of coronavirus and have accordingly increased their usage of it during the global pandemic.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) is a pandemic disease that had its origin last year and is a rapidly spreading disease across the world. COVID 19 is a viral infection , mostly affecting the respiratory tract of a healthy individual. Coronavirus is transmitted from an infected patient to a healthy individual through modes such as direct contact, droplet transmission etc. The symptoms of coronavirus are sore throat, shortness of breath and fever, loss of taste and smell sensations. Coronavirus infection may be a fatal illness as it has wiped out a huge number of the human population. Prevention against this pandemic includes social distancing, use of face masks to protect themselves and others from getting infected,  avoiding public gatherings - social, cultural or religious. Strict precaution methods should be followed by every individual such as, washing hands regularly with hand washes or sanitisers to keep this infection under control. Relapse of the infection is common among people which depends on the incubation period of that specific disease. Each infection has its own incubation period. In this article,  a current review has been done after extensively  evaluating various related articles from different journal sources whether significantly after control of disease there is an opportunity of cross-contamination in an individual.

Introduction: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered virus. Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness. The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is by taking precautions that would block the transmission route. At this time, there are no specific vaccines or treatments for COVID 19. Thus, this survey to understand the community-level cooperation in controlling the spread of  corona is very important.
Materials and Methods: A survey was conducted among 234 residents of the community. They were given a questionnaire to assess the community level cooperation . They were given a questionnaire consisting of 25 questions through google forms. The responses were collected and were statistically analyzed through SPSS software.
Results: This survey revealed that 87.2% are aware of social distancing and 64.1% practice social distancing regularly .89.7% said they wash their hands regularly with soap and 54.7% use disinfectant to clean the vegetables brought from the market. 65% regularly use a face mask for their protection.Through this survey it is found that there is awareness of the risk of acquiring the infection but the safety measures are not strictly followed.

Fresh fruits are always nutritious whether  taken raw or made as a juice and consumed. Everyone has an addiction towards fresh fruit juices. But fresh fruit juices always carries a risk of having contaminants in it. These contaminants are risky when it is a pathogenic agent. The risk is more when there is an outbreak of infection. Episodes of disease related to utilization of natural product juice have been a developing general medical issue since the mid 1990s. Because of epidemiologic examinations of episodes in which juice was entrap, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration actualized the process and control measures to manage the creation of organic product juice. The last squeeze guideline, which got powerful in 2002, 2003, and 2004, contingent upon the size of the business, necessitates that juice tasks conform to a risk investigation basic control point (HACCP) plan. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gets reports of food-related episodes of ailment. We looked into natural product juice–related flare-ups of disease answered to the CDC's Foodborne Outbreak Reporting System. From 1995 through 2005, 21 juice-related flare-ups were accounted for to CDC; 10 ensnared squeezed apple or juice, 8 were connected to squeezed orange, and 3 included different sorts of organic product juice. These episodes caused 1,366 diseases, with a middle of 21 cases for each flare-up (2 to 398 cases). Among the 13 flare-ups of known etiology, 5 were brought about by Salmonella, 5 by Escherichia coli O157:H7, 2 by Cryptosporidium, and one by Shiga poison delivering E. coli O111 and Cryptosporidium. Less squeeze related flare-ups have been accounted for since the juice HACCP guideline was actualized. Some juice tasks that are excluded from handling prerequisites or don't conform to the guideline keep on being involved in flare-ups of sickness.

Diabetes is one of the most common systemic conditions seen in middle-aged and elderly people in India. It has severe health and lifestyle complications which have a negative impact on the health of the individual, one of them being poor oral health. Numerous studies have shown the correlation between diabetes and periodontal diseases. However, very few studies show a relation between diabetes and edentulism[partial and complete]. The aim of this study was to find a correlation between diabetes and complete edentulism in a teaching hospital-based study. A retrospective descriptive study was conducted using the patient records from June 2019-March 2020 and patients who were diabetic and completely edentulous at the time of the visit at a university dental hospital in Chennai were analyzed. Out of the 62 patients, the age group most commonly associated with complete edentulism was 51-70 years[69.35%] followed by 71+ age groups[17.17%]. The population showed an equal ratio of male to female patients. The most common period of edentulism in the 51-70 age group was 36 months. The same in the 30-50 age group was 3 months and in the 71+ age group, it was 12 months. Only 4.8% of the patients were smokers. The most common group with complete edentulism was found to be males between the age of 50-70 who had no other systemic conditions except for diabetes and had their period of edentulism to be 36 months with a prevalence of 11.2%. The study found a significant association between diabetes and duration of edentulism(p=0.012). The limitations to the study are that other factors which might influence edentulism such as stress and socioeconomic status of the patient were not considered. The results might vary if a larger population with a greater geographic diversity will be studied. This study showed an association between diabetes and complete edentulism

The pandemic is  an outbreak of disease which spreads across a particular region or regions. The key features of pandemic include wide geographic extension, disease movement, novelty, severity, high attack rates and explosiveness. It also involves minimal population immunity, infectiousness and contagiousness which helps us to understand what pandemics are and its effect on the public. Viral pathogens can transform quickly, which allows them to pass from wild animals to humans. These emerging diseases endanger human lives and have major socioeconomic impacts. The aim of the review is to know about the viral pandemics and its effect on the general public. Human behaviour and demographic factors significantly increase these risks, and the speed with which humans travel between continents can cause the runaway spread of pandemics. The literature review was carried from scopus and pubmed databases from 2000 till date. The viral pandemic disease and its effect on the general public is the outbreak of global scale. Children, older people, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems are often affected by these pandemics. The cause, prevention and control of pandemics had been studied.

Face is the seat of an individual’s identity. Hence treatment plan and execution of corrective esthetic surgeries are challenging. The average age at which patients become self-aware of dentofacial deformities and seek professional help is usually in the second decade of life when they begin to develop a sense of individualistic identity to integrate into the society. However, it is observed that individuals in the older age groups are seeking treatment for correction of dentofacial deformities. The aim of this study was to identify the age at which individuals report for orthognathic surgery. For the purpose of this study, data collection was done retrospectively from the hospital archives for patients undergoing orthognathic surgery during a period of ten months from June 2019 to March 2020. In our study it was observed that despite differences in chief complaints, 54.17% females and 45.83% males seek jaw corrective procedures. Though the association between age of patients and osteotomy procedure was not of statistical significance (p=0.470 > 0.05), there was a substantial increase in those seeking treatment in the fourth decade of life (16.67%) implying a marked clinical significance. This increase is due to the multidisciplinary team involved in functional rehabilitation of patients in this age group.

Social presence in online learning environments refers to the degree to which a learner feels personally connected with other students and the instructor in an online learning community. In search of better, more cost effective ways to deliver instruction and training, universities and corporations have expanded their use of e-learning. Although several studies suggest that online education and blended instruction can be as effective as traditional classroom models, few studies have focused on learner satisfaction with online instruction, particularly in the transition to online learning from traditional approaches. The aim of the study is to know the perceptions of online teaching and classroom teaching among students. A self structured questionnaire was prepared containing 17 validated questions.The survey was circulated through an online survey Google form link. The data was collected and represented as a pie chart using SPSS software. Among the respondents 20% of the population prefer to take up online class while 80% prefer classroom teaching. 19.23% of the population says the classes are more interactive in online teaching whereas 80.77% says it is interactive during classroom teaching. 47.69% of the population says socialisation is possible in online teaching, whereas 52.31% says socialisation is possible in classroom teaching. This study concludes that students did not seem to gain the same amount of knowledge using an online course as they would if they used the traditional classroom method. The majority of students in this study were uncomfortable with the setting of online learning and prefered traditional classroom teaching.

Fried food is a cooking method in which food is submerged in oil. The more we consume these , the less is the intake of essential nutrients and vitamins in the body. Consumption of junk food can lead to a lot of health problems. Fried food can cause dental distress, headache, acne and a lot more. More oil is unhealthy as it elevates the amount of cholesterol in the body. The type of oil used determines the health risks related with fried foods. The aim of the study is to determine the awareness of the harmful effects of fried food among dental students. Self administered questionnaire was designed based on the effects of fried food. The questionnaire was distributed through an online survey planet link. The study population included dental students. The participants were explained about the purpose of study in detail. The questions were carefully studied and corresponding answers were marked by the participants. The data was collected and statistically analysed. 76% of the participants agree that junk food is unhealthy. 94% of the participants felt that fried food makes them fat. 82% of them consume fried food once in a week, 12% consume everyday and 6% consume fried food once in a month. 62% of the participants were willing to give upon fried food considering their health. The study concluded that awareness on the harmful effects of fried food among dental students was satisfactory.

Road traffic injuries are one of the most important leading causes of death and disability in many of the developed and developing countries. Road accidents are major public health problems faced by the society. The crash can be defined as an incident or collision which may or may not lead to injury, occurring on a public road and involving at least one moving vehicle. In a developing country like India with a dense population there is a need to check the awareness level among the public about traffic signals and rules among the adult population, this survey was carried out. To check the awareness level among the adolescents population a questionnaire containing 10 questions was prepared. This survey was carried between the month of June 2019 to March 2020 among the adult population living in Chennai. This survey was conducted in an online platform where the participants responded to their answers. Finally the results were analysed and tabulated. Around 85% had knowledge and awareness of violating traffic signals and rules and suggested the need for having awareness camps to be organised by NGOs/Traffic Police/Government to create awareness among the public to obey traffic rules and 15% had no idea. The survey participants had moderate knowledge about road traffic regulations and most of them mentioned that prime speed, drivers lack of awareness about traffic regulation and laws, and drivers non-compliance with traffic rules and regulation were the foremost important explanation for road traffic accidents

Travel speed is one of the most critical parameters for road safety; the evidence suggests that increased vehicle speed is associated with higher crash risk and injury severity. Both naturalistic and simulator studies have reported that drivers distracted by a mobile phone select a lower driving speed. Mobile phone use while driving is a major cause of driver distraction, affecting driving performance and increasing accident risk. The aim of the study is to analyse the impact of mobile phone usage in road traffic environment on the speed managing behaviour among young and aged population by survey.A questionnaire was created with a set of 12 questions related to mobile phone usage in a road traffic environment . 100 random participants of adults and aged males and females by random sampling method . The participants were asked to fill the questionnaire in an online forum . The results were collected and formatted in Pie charts, Chi- square test was used and statistically analysed using SPSS.90% of them are aware of road safety while driving. Most of the population wear helmets regularly  which is about 59%, 15% of the population wear helmets occasionally and 26% do not wear helmets regularly.84% of them responded that they use bluetooth or headphones while driving and 16% of them responded that they won't use bluetooth or headphones while driving. 70% of them responded that they get distracted using phones while driving. Mobile phone use while driving is a common driving behavior and poses a serious threat to public health. From the current study it shows that mobile phone usage while driving causes greater distraction. Thus we conclude further measures to be taken in control of usage of mobile phone while driving.

Anabolic steroids, also known more properly as anabolic–androgenic steroids (AAS) are steroidal androgens that include natural androgens like testosterone as well as synthetic androgens that are structurally related and have similar effects to testosterone. Health risks can be produced by long-term use or excessive doses of AAS. Therefore, the aim of this present survey was to create awareness about usage of anabolic steroids among basketball players in tirupur. Self administered questionnaire was designed about awareness of usage of anabolic steroids  among the population of basketball players. The questionnaires were distributed through a survey planet link and 172 subjects answered this survey. Data was collected and results were represented in pie charts. Results showed that 58.70% participants were aware that usage of anabolic steroids leads to a compensated life  and 41.30%  of the participants were not aware about it. Majority of participants 72.70% were not aware about different methods of intake of anabolic steroids and About 52.70% participants are not aware that anabolic steroids cause cardiac and liver disorders. It concludes that there is a moderate awareness about use of anabolic steroids and its complications among the participants. So , more awareness might be required about anabolic steroids in further studies among the general population to lead a healthy life.

Binge eating disorder is when a person eats an excessive amount of food, losing control over what and how much is eaten, followed by feelings of guilt, shame or disgust. Factors like stress, food restriction, presence of palatable foods and environmental conditioning may also lead to binge in individuals. Early assessment and more extensive and suitable treatment may prevent more severe disorders. The main aim of this survey was to analyze binge-eating patterns among school students.Questionnaire was prepared and administered to 102 participants through a survey planet – an online survey. The study participants were people of age between 13-17. Data was collected from the link and was represented in the pie chart form. 31.2% binge eat more than 3 times a day, 32.3% binge eat more than 5 times a day, 19.4% binge eat more than 7 times a day. Stress, depression, negative feelings are some of the reasons, which influences binge eating, which is very common among school students. 48% consume more than normal level of calorie a day, 37.8% consume normal level of calorie, 13.3% consume less than normal level of calorie per day. Consumption of spicy food and junk food is also related to binge eating. Individuals with binge eating disorder experience impaired functioning in both social life and at home. From the survey, it was evident that binge eating is common among school students as the majority (32.3%) of them eat more than 5 times a day for which depression and hunger is the major cause.

Oral hygiene refers to the practice of keeping the mouth, teeth and gums clean and healthy to prevent oral disease. Oral hygiene is often taken for granted but it is essential part of our daily life.Oral hygiene is the practice of maintaining a clean oral cavity to prevent dental diseases such as dental cavities, gingivitis, periodontitis and bad breath. A total of 150 cricketers were involved in the study . Self administered questionnaire related to the oral hygiene practices along with sociodemographic details was prepared and it was distributed through an online survey link. Based on hypotonic and isotonic content of the sports drink , the majority of the participants(58.7%) prefer isotonic sports drinks and the remaining participants( 41.3%) prefer Hypotonic .About 58% of participants eat chocolate regularly. 54.6% of participants agreed that dental erosion affects oral health . 56% of participants think oral health has an impact on sports performance. In the present study, the knowledge,attitude and practice of oral hygiene is moderate.For further improvement, awareness about maintaining good oral health should be created among the public. Erosion can be prevented by educating the subjects about the risks associated with carbonated drinks which is more common among sportsmen and young adults.

Water is an essential natural resource for sustaining life. However, chemical composition has to be balanced in the available water to make it useful, in the current era of economic growth many natural and man made water bodies are getting polluted and becoming unfit for human use. Traces of fluorides are present in many waters; higher concentrations are often associated with underground sources. In areas rich in fluoride-containing minerals, well water may contain up to about 10 mg of fluoride per litre. The highest natural level reported is 2800 mg/litre.Many epidemiological studies of possible adverse effects of the long-term ingestion of fluoride via drinking-water have been carried out. These studies clearly establish that fluoride primarily produces effects on skeletal tissues (bones and teeth). Low concentrations provide protection against dental caries, especially in children. Fluoride being one of the most abundant anions present in naturally existing water bodies, its benefits or demerits in water depends on the amount/concentration, the results on comparing the samples from drinking water and collected river water the total dissolved salts concentration is almost double in collected water than that of drinking water,therefore it’s not completely safe for drinking. Thus the tested sample is unfit for drinking purposes.

More and more people, in spite of age and gender, are signing up for profiles on online social networks for connecting with one another during this virtual world. Some people  have many  friends and followers spread across multiple profiles. But at the same time there is proliferation of fake profiles also. Fake profiles often spam the  users like posting inappropriate or illegal content. Fake profiles are created while misrepresenting some known person to cause harassment to him/her.This is a cross sectional study conducted among the common people through a questionnaire with 10 questions. The sample was taken on common people. The sample size of the study wass 100 and the results were tabulated accordingly.From the response collected it is evident that there is no significant relationship among the public regarding cyber crime.  People who are associated with the IT sector are well aware than the general public on Cyber Crime. The Independent variable such as age and gender was taken into consideration and the dependent variable such as awareness about the ransomware and cyber crime was put forward to the public.The best of our knowledge, none of the previous researchers have adopted this approach.

Aim: This study was aimed to assess the antibacterial effect of alpha lipoic acids against various oral microorganisms.
Background: Oral microorganisms are responsible for oral related diseases.Oral microorganisms implicated in the etiology of dental caries, stomatitis, gingivitis and periodontitis. Gradual increase in the rate of resistance to antibiotics leads to increase in oral pathologies..
Materials and method: 100 mg of alpha lipoic acid was measured and dissolved in 2 ml of ethanol. 250 ml of Muller Hinton Agar (MHA) was prepared, sterilised, poured onto the petri plates. After solidification each MHA plates were swabbed by overnight culture of enteric organisms such as Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus mutans, Pseudomonas species, Enterococcus faecalis, Escherichia coli, Candida albicans. Using a well cutter 3 wells were formed on each MHA plate. In each well, alpha lipoic acid was added at the concentration of 30, 60 and 90 ul and the petri plates were kept for incubation at 37 °C for 24 h. The zone of inhibition was  recorded in each plate
Result: Alpha lipoic acid prominently inhibited the growth of all the organisms invested. It possesses inhibitory antimicrobial effects even at low concentrations and it has shown maximum inhibitory antimicrobial activity at higher concentrations. Candida albicans was found as highly susceptible to alpha lipoic acid.
Conclusion: The potential use of alpha lipoic acids provided in a local delivery vehicle to infected sites in the oral cavity, could be considered as an additional therapeutic approach to improve oral health

Mobile phone addiction is a type of technological addiction or non substance addiction. The present study was conducted with the objectives of assessing an existing Mobile Phone Dependence Questionnaire scale among dental students and to assess the pattern and factors associated with mobile phone addiction-like behaviour. Nomophobia literally means no mobile phobia that is the fear of being out of mobile phone contact. A cross-sectional study with 177 participants was conducted with Mobile Phone Dependence Questionnaire self administered questionnaire among students of a dental college in Chennai. The questionnaire had demographic details and questions assessing their mobile phone pattern use and self perceived effects of mobile usage on health. Data was collected using a questionnaire. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data. Among the study participants, 64% were above the age of 20. Around 59.3% used their phones for more than 4 hours, however no statistically significant association was observed between gender and duration of phone usage (p <0.05). About 45.8% reported they used their phones during class hours too. Eye strain was the most perceived effect among the participants. The present study results showed that the usage of mobile phones among the study participants was high, which is consistent with the rising trend of usage of mobile phones. . Mass media efforts should be made to raise awareness among people regarding the health effects of mobile phones and regulatory guidelines to reduce its exposure and using mobiles judiciously to avoid becoming independent of technology.

The earliest evidence of demineralization on the smooth enamel surface of a crown is a white spot lesion. It is one of the most commonly encountered esthetic problems post orthodontic treatment.  The conventional treatment of these white spot lesions includes topical fluoride application, improving the oral hygiene, and use of remineralizing agents. This article uses a minimally invasive novel approach to treat white spot lesions based on infiltration of enamel caries with low-viscosity light curing resins called infiltrants. This technique is a promising treatment modality for the prevention of caries progression and improving esthetics, by diminishing the opacity.

Maxillary sinus malignancies are rare worldwide. The disease usually presents at an advanced stage making its management challenging for all the medical personnel involved in its treatment. Because of its location deep within the maxilla and its proximity to critical surrounding structures, radiotherapy plays an integral role in sterilizing the area of malignant cells. Sinonasal malignancies occur twice as often in males as in females, and are most often diagnosed in patients 50 to 70 years of age. Maxillary sinus carcinomas are aggressive in nature which present with symptoms in the advanced stages when radical resection becomes the only choice. It is essential to study the basis of such carcinomas and create awareness among patients and dental students to ensure early diagnosis and therefore a good prognosis. A questionnaire based study was conducted among dental students of third, fourth year and interns at a private dental college in Chennai, Tamilnadu, India to assess their knowledge and understanding of carcinomas of maxillary sinus. A multiple choice questionnaire was presented to 103 subjects and their responses were noted, tabulated and statistical analysis was performed using SPSS by IBM by performing Chi-square test. Among 103 subjects, 28 were third year students (27.2%), 47 were interns (45.6%) and remaining 28 of the subjects were fourth year students Fourth year students had increased  awareness about carcinomas of maxillary sinus when compared to third year students and interns in most cases (p>0.05).

Dental implant surgery is the procedure in which replaces both the missing tooth and root with a stable, metal post called an implant. There are many significant drawbacks to the dental procedure and they include time consuming and invasive, a longer duration of treatment, patient cooperation, expensive, need for precision and subsequent follow up visits. A guided implant surgery is when the dentist utilizes advanced machinery and imaging technology to aid in the manufacture and placement of the dental implant in a more efficient, precise and accurate manner. The aim of this study is to assess the knowledge of Undergraduate students in the field of implantology and to check their views regarding easier and more accurate placement of implants. A questionnaire based survey was done among 100 dental students. Probing questions regarding their knowledge of guided implant surgery were asked. The results were tabulated and analysed to get the result. It was seen that the majority of the students were aware of the advances in dental implantology. They understood the advantages of a guided implant surgery

Opioid analgesics are prescribed by dentists either as an adjunct or as a definitive treatment for pain management and also for some common dental diseases in which they can relieve pain when used appropriately.  Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the preferred analgesic agent by the majority of dentists when compared with opioid analgesics, because they inhibit inflammatory reactions in addition to providing analgesia. The appropriate and inappropriate use of opioid analgesics can lead to serious adverse drug events and these drugs have the potential to be misused and abused including overdose. The study was conducted among the dental undergraduates. Data collection was done by the use of online questionnaire forms that had 13 questions regarding the use of opioid analgesics in dental management. Google form was used for data collection from the surveyors.Statistical test was run using chi-square test with statistical analysis software SPSS version 23 by IBM. From the results of the study we can observe that  57% of the participants do not prescribe opioid analgesics to their patients. 62% of the participants have known that opioids can be used as a medication to relieve pain after a dental treatment.  65% of the participants consider tramadol hydrochloride to be the safest drug, 19% consider hydrocodone as the safest drug and 16% consider codeine as the safest drug among  all the opioids and the results were statistically not significant. Higher interest was observed among the interns(34%)  to prescribe opioids to their patients post dental treatment and the results were statistically significant. Thus it can be concluded that opioids when used in appropriate doses in the supervision of the dentist can reduce the side effects and produce excellent analgesic effect in dental management.

Dentinal hypersensitivity (DH) is a common clinical condition usually associated with exposed dentin surfaces , dental pain which is sharp in character and of short duration, arising from exposed dentin surfaces in response to stimuli, typically thermal, evaporative, tactile, osmotic, chemical or electrical; and which cannot be ascribed to any other dental disease. It can affect patients of any age group and most commonly affects the canines and premolars of both the arches.This study aims to assess the prevalence of dentin hypersensitivity among a hospital population in order to assess the causes, preventive measures and awareness about dentin hypersensitivity among the medical and non-medical professionals in a hospital.There are many factors that cause dentin hypersensitivity including tooth brushing practices, brushing materials, diet and oral hygiene practices. A survey with questionnaires regarding brushing practices ,dietary habits, oral hygiene was distributed among medical and non-medical workers in the hospital. The results show that 44.3% experienced dentin hypersensitivity whereas 55.7% did not experience dentin hypersensitivity.73.2% used moderate pressure while brushing their teeth. A lower prevalence of dentin hypersensitivity was found as the population of the hospital have been practising accurate oral hygiene practices which includes the food habits, brushing pressure and selection of toothpaste.Reduction in prevalence of hypersensitivity is achieved when too hot or too cold, acidic substances come in contact with tooth surface.

Modified Gallego’s stain is a variant of Lille’s stain that uses basic reagents like hematoxylin, carbol fuschin and aniline blue. The study aimed at assessing the efficiency of  Modified Gallego’s stain in differentially staining dentin. To check the efficiency of modified Gallego’s stain in differentiating and understanding the histological morphology of dentin, 6 natural teeth (2 posterior teeth and 4 anterior teeth) were chosen using modified Gallego’s stain. Unlike the H & E stain that vaguely stains oral tissues, modified gallego’s stain specifically and differentially stains hard tissue components, especially dentin, which enables easier assessment of dentin morphology. Modified Gallego’s stain is one such stain which not only stains the decalcified sections but also differentially stains the hard tissues of the tooth. When stained with Modified Gallego’s stain, these components were stained with different colours. Hence, it was concluded that Modified Gallego’s stain can be used as a potential tool to stain the hard tissue components of decalcified and ground sections of teeth and can be considered to be used as one of the differential stains for hard tissues especially dentin and as an adjunct to routine H&E.

Saliva is an important and a complex secretion to be formed in the oral cavity. Salivary pH was done in patients with the presence of leukoplakia and a comparison is done to estimate the salivary pH in patients with leukoplakia and in healthy subjects, though saliva pH has an effect based on the usage of tobacco products and other substances, this study is done to prove that saliva can be used as a diagnostic tool in identifying the lesion which are pre-malignant based on changes in  pH. The results of the study show that there is a significant decrease in the mean pH of Saliva in patients with tobacco consumption as compared with non-users, though there are other studies that show in contrast, this study is done to prove the significance of salivary pH change in users of smokeless and smoking in patients with oral leukoplakia. Association analysis of mean pH of patients with oral leukoplakia and Type of leukoplakia shows no statistical significance(Chi-square: 30.000, p value: 0.414 > 0.05).

The aim is to understand and create awareness about the oral manifestation of sarcoidosis among the dental students. Sarcoidosis is a common multisystemic granulomatous disease. Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease characterized by formation of non-necrotizing epithelioid granulomas. Granulomas are tiny clumps of inflammatory cells in one or more organs in our body. These can interfere with an organ’s function and structure, if our immune system is over driven by these clumps of inflammatory cells. The commonly affected organ is lungs and in the head and neck its salivary glands. Oral manifestations of sarcoidosis are very rare and usually appear as non-tender swelling and ulcers in the lips, hard and soft palate, buccal mucosa, tongue and tonsils. The intraoral localized sarcoid lesion is histologically similar to a generalized sarcoidosis. No single test is enough for diagnosing and the presence of granuloma is also not enough to conclude the diagnosis. Oral manifestation of sarcoidosis is unusual, dentists must be aware that oral manifestation is specific localization and it is usually the first manifestation of the diseases. Therefore by knowing the oral manifestation of sarcoidosis, the dental students can be more aware of the prevalence of sarcoidosis and spread awareness among the patients.

Radiation protection refers to the implementation of practices to reduce radiation exposure to patients, workers and the public. The fundamental aim of radiation protection is to reduce risk of harm by ensuring that any dose received is justified and ‘as low as reasonably practicable’ (ALARP).  Exposure to Radiation has become common in Dentistry, patients are exposed to radiation by various radiation emitting devices such as OPG, CBCT,CT and IOPA. Apart from patients, dental surgeons and dental assistants are being exposed to radiations on a regular basis. Radiation effects on human cells cause various problems, increased risk of brain cancers, tumors of parotid gland and various problems in the head and neck region. Thus knowing about  Radiation protection is important for both patients and Dentists.The Aim of this study is to create awareness and determine the understanding of radiation protection devices and its role in dentistry among dental students.Radiographic examination plays an important part of diagnosis in dental practice.Majority of the dental students within the study were aware of the radiation protection devices and its usage.

Concept of Laissez faire is deemed to be the most apt practice under the ambit of administrative jurisprudence, but under the Indian context, the picture is unclear with respect to the impact of the same during scarcities. The scarcity of water in the state of Tamil Nadu has become a burning issue in the current scenario. But as a result of the policy of laissez faire the administrative bodies have not taken a direct step to offer a solution for the problem. Under this kind of a administrative function and psychology a natural ambiguity arises with respect to the impact of laissez faire during scarcities and calamities in the state and a clear picture is required with respect to the administrative mechanism or policy of the government during scarcities and a natural question arises as to functions of administrative bodies during catastrophes and crises. Therefore the study is carried out with an aim to find out the impact of laissez faire policy in scarcities with the help of Tamil Nadu administrative regime. By the virtue of non-probability convenience sampling, existence of an adverse impact of laissez faire in Tamil Nadu water scarcity problem could be framed as the result of the study. The study concludes that policy of laissez faire lacks effectiveness during scarcities and the study recommends that the nature of functioning need to be changed during the times of scarcities and crisis.

One of the most frequent indications of periodontal plastic surgery is the treatment of gingival recessions. This treatment has mainly been justified by the patient’s wish to improve the aesthetic appearance when there is an exposed root. The ultimate goal of a root coverage procedure is complete coverage of the recession defect with a good aesthetic appearance related to the adjacent soft tissues, minimal probing depth following healing and minimal postoperative discomfort. The selection of one surgical technique over another with the use of particular grafts depends on several factors to achieve optimal regeneration of the lost periodontal tissues via guided tissue regeneration (GTR). Over the years, various materials have been used as physical barriers in GTR. One such novel material that has been tried relatively recently is the amniotic or the placental membrane. The placental allografts possess various properties that may be beneficial as a barrier membrane in periodontal therapy. Therefore, this review article elaborately explains the basic features, actions and applications of amniotic membranes that can be used as a remarkable tool in the field of periodontal regeneration.

India has been popular on global outreach due to its encouragement in the Information innovation industry and as a result of the huge number of Indian I.T. experts working abroad. In this juncture various offences related to cyber network and social networking sites in respect of security have also increased at a great deal. The rate of cyber security offences focusing on social networking sites is directly proportional to rate of social networking site users. It could be understood that exposure to security risk in social media and networking sites is increasing day by day at an alarming rate. In Spite of the recent amendment in criminal law and Information technology offences and chances of victimhood could not be reduced. an ambiguity prevails in respect to the chances of exposure to risk in the cases of interchangeable characters. This ambiguity tends to be gleamed in the ambit of psychiatric jurisprudence in reference to Narcissistic personality traits, as it is a well founded principle that every perpetrator of cyber crime through social media networking sites suffer due to narcissistic personality disorder. Thus this research is carried out with an aim of identifying Narcissistic Personality Traits towards Exposure to security Risk in Social media Networking sites in India. By virtue of an empirical study with a sample size of 253  determined by convenient sampling through an  open sample frame statistically studied with help of graphs, pie charts, Pearson correlation, Mann Whitney U test, independent t test and Kendall's tau_b test, the study was able to find out that individuals with narcissistic personality traits are not exposed to security risk arising out of computer oriented and related crimes compared to individuals with low levels of narcissistic personality traits. The female population is more prone to the security risk compared to the male population due to the difference in the level of narcissistic personality traits among the 2 genders.

On the growing preferences of mediation over judicial resolution among parties for matrimonial disputes, various studies have hypothesized on effects and efficiency of mediation in matrimonial disputes and mediators. Though it is well founded that a mediator’s behavior is a subject of change, research has failed to recognize the dynamics in the behavior of mediators and the changes in the behavior of mediators. While a close understanding on the role of mediator and his behavior is attempted, an ambiguity arises with respect to reasons for changes in the mediator’s behavior, role of pre-existing, concurrent and background factors in the behavior of mediators. Therefore this research aims in identifying various factors influencing mediator’s behavior in matrimonial disputes. The study is carried out with the help of a convenient sampling method,  having 419 sample sizes from a sample frame in the mediators office and chambers . The statistical tools used for the purpose of deriving results are complex graphs, independent t test, Pearson correlations, Mann Whitney Utest. Every mediator is likely to get influenced by Place and hygiene factors. The study was able to find out that there is a significant difference between the number of mediators  in influencing the behavior of mediators. Thus the study makes a conclusion that there are various factors that tend to influence a mediator’s behavior in matrimonial dispute settlement processes which include  psychological factors, social factors and environmental factors.

Acetaminophen (APAP) overdose is the most common cause of acute liver failure in the US, and decades of intense study of its pathogenesis resulted in the development of the antidote N-acetylcysteine, which facilitates scavenging of the reactive metabolite and is the only treatment in clinical use. However, the narrow therapeutic window of this intervention necessitates a better understanding of the intricacies of APAP-induced liver injury for the development of additional therapeutic approaches that can benefit late-presenting patients. More recent investigations into APAP hepatotoxicity have established the critical role of mitochondrial dysfunction in mediating liver injury as well as clarified mechanisms of APAP-induced hepatocyte cell death facilitates scavenging of the reactive metabolite and is the only treatment in clinical use. Mitochondrial oxidative and nitrosative stress is a key mechanistic feature involved in downstream signaling after APAP overdose. The identification of specific mediators of necrotic cell death further establishes the regulated nature of APAP-induced hepatocyte cell death. In addition, the discovery of the role of mitochondrial dynamics and autophagy in APAP-induced liver injury provides additional insight into the elaborate cell signaling mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of this important clinical problem. In spite of these new insights into the mechanisms of liver injury, significant controversy still exists on the role of innate immunity in APAP-induced hepatotoxicity.

Olestra is known as a fat substitute or chemically derived as sucrose polyester. It’s also known by its brand name Olean. It does not add on calories or cholesterol to the product. It’s also used in food preparation such as potato chips. Originally it's been approved by The Food and Drug Admiration [FDA] for the replacement of fats and oil. It is majorly used to condition dough, as one of many ingredients and as flavouring agent in baking and frying or even generally used as dressing for salad. Olestra has zero calories opted for fat replacement in the various preparations of savory snacks. Nowadays, coronary heart diseases [CHD] are commonly known worldwide and research has proven that the type of our diet contributes to the elevation of blood cholesterol depending on the amount and type of fats consumed. Besides CHD, consumption of fats also accords the growth of cancer like breast, colon and prostate. However, Olestra has a few major drawbacks in playing its role in the human system as it is not absorbed into the human digestive system and henceforth not supplying any nutrition nor energy. Besides that, when consumed with other lipophilic dietary supplements, the absorption of Olestra is affected. This review article highlights in detail about olestra.

The mental foramen is an oval or circular opening on the anterior surface of the mandible. Mental foramen is the determinant of the mental triangle and forms an important landmark of the human mandible.  Mental nerves and vessels pass through it and supply the area from canine to first molar. The mental nerve is the neurosensory nerve. Mental Foramen it’s important landmark and orientation which serves surgical, local anaesthetic and other invasive procedures for oral and maxillofacial surgery. Understanding the anatomy of this region is important for effective nerve block and to avoid neurovascular bundles. It is also important to identify the ideal location of mental foramen for periodontal surgery, flap operation of lower tooth and for orthodontic surgery. Even so, in order to avoid neurovascular complications, particular attention should be paid to the possible occurrence of one or more accessory mental foramen during surgical procedures involving the mandible. The mental foramen is an important structure that needs to be considered in the surgery.

Teeth that have become severely compromised by decay, large failing restorations, or fracture most often require full-coverage crowns to restore them to their original form and function. A core buildup is a restoration placed in a badly broken down or grossly decayed tooth to restore the bulk of the coronal portion of the tooth. This facilitates the subsequent restoration by means of an indirect extra coronal restoration. The strength of the tooth can be enhanced with intracoronal support. It should have compressive strength to resist intraoral forces and flexural strength to prevent core dislodgement during function. It should also have sufficient flexural strength, biocompatibility, resistance to leakage of oral fluids at the core-tooth interface, ease of manipulation, and ability to bond to remaining tooth structure. The primary purpose of a core build- up is to replace enough missing tooth structure to permit the creation of ideal retention and resistance form in the crown preparation. Materials used for core restoration after endodontic treatment include amalgam, resin composites, zirconia to name a few. The aim of this review is to evaluate the use of zirconia as a core material by assessing the studies available in comparison to other core materials.

Large law firms show affinity towards students who have participated in moot court. Because these understudies already spent many hours perfecting the analytical, research, and writing aptitudes that practicing attorneys must have. As a result moot court have gained high importance in the legal front but In the recent times presentation and arguments of students (mooters) in moot court competition vary from competition to competition, though academic pressures and preparation is put forth as a reason, it is apprehended that the responsiveness of judges may also be a reason for the same. Judges in moot courts occupy important role, the judges pave way for students to learn court manners and patience, in the moot court presentation. The recent behavior of students towards moot court presentation and participation gives way to apprehend that the judge’s responsiveness may be a reason for differential skillful and intellect presentation in competitions. Therefore this research aims at the influence of differential responsiveness of judges in the performance of participants. by the virtue of non probability convenience sampling and using chi square tests it could be found out that There is no relationship between student opinion on differential responsiveness of judges and year of study, There is no relationship between student opinion on Influence of judges responsiveness in participant presentation and year of study. The study put forth that the performance of students in moot court competitions is influenced by differential responsiveness of judges. Therefore the study recommends that only qualified experts of the subject matter must be preferred as judges in the moot court competitions.

For decades, across the country, there has been an ongoing debate on the powers and the steps taken for law enforcement by the police. Statistics prove that people oppose the steps taken by the police even when it is done under their official capacity.Though the CRPC, has given a well crafted and apt powers to the police for the purpose of investigation, several media reports prove that individuals are against the process of investigation carried out by the police this situation seems magnified in the case of rural areas, and thus an ambiguity arises as to whether the procedure requires amendment or are the general public not aware of the same. The study aims to find out the general awareness of individuals on the powers of police to investigate under crpc, using non probability convenience sampling and chi square tests. The study reveals that individuals in the urban areas are aware that the police may extend the duration but the individuals in rural areas are not aware of the same. In case of cognizable offence order of magistrate is not necessary, individuals in the urban areas are aware of this power whereas those in the rural areas aren’t aware. The people living in urban areas are aware that the police officer has got the power to subject the victim and the accused for medical examination but it is not in the case of rural areas. Thus it could be stated that there is a relationship between Awareness of General Public on Power of Police to Investigate under Criminal Procedural Code and place of living. It could be recommended that that awareness programs may be organized in rural areas by police and lawyers so that the negative perception over the police may change

Third-hand smoke (THS) is the residual tobacco smoke contaminant that remains after a cigarette is extinguished. It can react with the indoor air pollutant nitrous acid to produce a carcinogen. THS exposure may occur long after second-hand smoke appears (SHS). A cross sectional questionnaire study was conducted in which a close-ended self-administered 20 item questionnaire was prepared. The data was collected from the smokers and non-smokers. Demographic characteristics, tobacco use status, attitudes toward awareness of third hand smoke and its adverse effects, was filled by the surveyed subjects. A total of 100 members with the mean age of 15-45 years participated in the study. The awareness of Third hand smoke is more among the non-smokers than compared with the smokers. The precautionary principle, which is a “strategy to cope with possible risks where scientific understanding is yet incomplete,” is widely used in Europe and in radiation protection in the United States. Extended producer responsibility promotes total-lifecycle environmental improvements, placing economic, physical, and informational responsibilities onto the tobacco industry.  Efforts to further reduce THS exposure may ultimately reduce tobacco-related diseases and preserve the health of non-smoking adults and children.

Politics is so much required as it offers students a platform to develop their leadership skills. The absence of politics in college campuses threatens to make them authoritarian and undemocratic, which is not good. It was an agreed statement that political parties have already destroyed our country and now are bent upon misguiding our youths with financial and judiciary powers. Student politics is generally viewed by those in authority as a negative factor, something to be eliminated from Academic life. Student politics sometimes affects higher education and on occasions sweeps beyond the campus to have disruptive implications for the political system.

Physically and mentally challenged individuals are a unique set of patient population whose health demands and oral care demands are considerably different from the normal patient population. Therefore, this study aimed to assess the oral hygiene practices followed by physically and mentally challenged people in Madurai district. The study was carried out in a homogeneous population of 100 physically and mentally challenged participants. The self structured questionnaire was distributed among the targeted population. The data were collected and presented in the form of pie charts.The population mostly consisted of mentally challenged people who were even unaware of the basic hygiene to be maintained whereas the rest of the population were visually and hearing impaired persons and handicaps. The most surprising result of the study is that the population was aware of their impact of disability on oral health.The result establishes that there exists a better awareness and knowledge among caretakers on oral hygiene practices that should be followed on such differently abled persons.Creating awareness and providing knowledge on oral hygiene practices would provide better oral health and thus avoiding complications in systemic health

The study is based on the nexus of capitalization, risk-taking, and profitability of 187 commercial banks of the People‟s Republic of China (P.R.C) around the years 2011 to 2018. Research regulates a single threshold level for bank size and reviews the nonlinear correlation of capitalization, return on assets, and return on equity with the use of pmodels like panel ordinary least square (POLS), fixed effect (FE), and panel threshold regression (PTR). The value of threshold amounts to approximately 1,371,44 USD 1000 of total assets above this level market capitalization positively affect bank performance. The magnitude of capitalization declines from 3.14% to 0.65% for return on assets and from 21.9% to 1.56% for return on equity for banks is excessively larger after crossing the threshold level in the China banking sector.
