Aim and objectives: To measure the tip, rotation, anchorage loss and rate of retraction during the retraction of upper permanent canines with conventional Roth brackets and synergy Roth brackets using frictionless mechanics. Methodology: The samples in the present study consist of two groups between the age group of 13 to 20 years. Thirty patients who required maxillary canine retraction into first premolar extraction sites as part of their orthodontic treatment completed this study. In a random split-mouth design consisting of Group 1- Conventional Roth brackets and Group 2- Synergy Roth brackets, the retraction of upper canines was performed using PG (Poul Gjessing) spring with 100 g of force. The amount of tip, rotation, anchorage loss and rate of retraction during canine retraction were evaluated on dental casts. Results: The rate of canine retraction was statistically and clinically significant with Synergy Roth brackets (P ˂ .05), but there were no Statistical difference between Conventional Roth and Synergy Roth brackets regarding the tip, rotation and anchorage loss (P ˃ .05). Conclusion: Efficient rate of canine retraction was found with Synergy Roth brackets hence it can be employed in group a anchorage cases.

The most difficult challenge for practitioners is to solve the problem of the loose and functional instability of the mandibular denture, particularly for patients with a severely resorbed ridge. Neutral zone technique must be relied on, to set the teeth in the space where the displacing forces of the lips, the tongue, and cheeks are balanced. It guarantees optimal prosthetic integration.
This case report describes the steps of recording this neutral zone.

Introduction: Human nutrition refers to the provision of essential nutrients necessary to support human life and health. Poor eating habits and lack of nutritional knowledge are crucial public health issues that have serious health implications, through proper dietary education for their patient's, dentists play a significant role in preventing nutritional-related diseases. Aim and Objective: The current study set to evaluate the knowledge, attitude, and practice (KAP) on diet counseling among dental practitioners. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study using a pre-tested structured questionnaire written in English, which includes 25 questions based on knowledge of the dental practitioners about diet and nutrition counseling, which were given to 200 participants and the participants asked to respond to each item. Data analysis was performed using SPSS software 21.0 and presented as descriptive statistics and Logistic Regression (p < 0.05%). Results: Of the subjects, 78% agreed that nutrition was a vital component of total health care. However, only 46.8% of the participants reported that they had received adequate training in diet counseling. Most of the subjects agreed that diet counseling needed to be emphasized in dental education, 28.9%, and only 40% of the participants expressed their confidence in rendering diet counseling to their patients. Conclusion: The present study concluded that most of the participating subjects had basic knowledge regarding diet and its importance in oral health. Lack of confidence, time, and apprehension about financial reimbursement were three main reasons cited as obstacles for the incorporation of diet counseling in routine clinical practice.

The prime concept behind root canal treatment is to achieve a proper coronal and apical seal. Apicoectomy (root-end resection) with retrograde filling is a widely followed procedure to encounter the condition when all the efforts of endodontic treatment have failed. Among various ideal requirements of a root-end filling material, proper sealing ability is one of the most required properties. So, the selection of appropriate root-end filling material is to be done to prevent microleakage in the apical area after root-end resection. This study aims to evaluate the apical microleakage of two root-end filling materials. "Biodentine," which is known for its excellent biocompatibility and "MTA Repair HP," which has superior handling properties are compared in this study. Root canal treatment till obturation is done for all the samples. Root-end resection is done by removal of the apical 3mm with an angulation of 90° to the long axis of the tooth. The root end cavity of a depth 3mm is made. The samples were randomly divided into two groups, group 1 - MTA Repair HP, group 2 - Biodentine. Materials were manipulated according to the manufacturer’s instructions, and the root end cavities were filled with the respective materials of the belonging groups. Two coats of nail varnish is applied, and the samples were immersed in methylene blue dye. Dye penetration study was done, and specimens wereexamined under a stereomicroscope. Results are tabulated and statistically analyzed. Within the limitations of the study, it is concluded that, in comparison to these two root-ends filling materials, Biodentine showed the highest sealing ability and less microleakage compared to MTA Repair HP, which showed moderate microleakage.

Introduction: Ceramic brackets exhibit generally high bond strength and enamel surface damage after debonding. Aim of the study: To evaluate and compare shear bond strength and enamel surface changes while de-bonding different ceramic bracket systems Materials and methods: Three types of ceramic brackets (polycrystalline Clarity; 3M Unitek, Monrovia, Calif; monocrystalline Inspire Ice; Ormco, Orange, Calif and Radiance; American orthodontics, USA) were bonded to extracted maxillary premolars, with Transbond XT light cure adhesive paste (3M Unitek). The sample consisted of 90 extracted maxillary premolar teeth. 15 bonded teeth of each type, were tested on UTM and 15 bonded teeth, were removed by pliers according to the manufacturers recommendations. After debonding with pliers ARI scores and SEM analysis of tooth surface and bracket base were evaluated under different magnifications (30X and 500X). Results: The mean SBS value of Inspire Ice, Radiance and clarity Advanced were 22.81± 2.02 MPa, 17.93±1.63 MPa and 17.28 ±1.45 Mpa respectively. ARI score showed that most of the adhesive left on the tooth surface of monocrystalline brackets. SEM analysis showed that enamel surface changes in the form of open focal holes on tooth surface and globules were found on the corresponding bracket base. Conclusion: The highest SBS with minimum enamel surface damage observed on Inspire Ice.

Health care has changed dramatically by the union of computers and telecommunications. Implications for physicians and hospitals have already gained an extensive media attention, although relatively lesser information gained in terms of the impact of information technology on dentistry. Teledentistry is the use of telecommunications and information technology for dental care, education, consultation and public awareness. The present article reviews the basis, origin, scope, rationale and requirements for teledentistry, along with the illustration with the help of current evidence that exists in the literature of how the digital transformation will likely affect the dentists and their patients.

Dr. K. Srinivasan
Page Numbers : 82-86
DOI : 10.36348/sjodr.2020.v05i01.014
Background: The nasal index determination is one of the most commonly used anthropometric parameters in classifying human races. Aim: The objective of this study was to determine the normal parameters of the external nose (Nasal height, width and nasal index) in the south Indian population. Subjects and Methods: The study was conducted randomly on healthy subjects of both sexes. Nasal height and width were measured using a vernier caliper. Then, the nasal index was determined for each subject. The obtained data were subjected to statistical analysis (SPSS Version 21). Results: A total of 143 subjects, 73 males and 70 females, aged 18-23 years, were enrolled in the study. The study showed the existence of sexual dimorphism in nasal morphology, appearing after the age of 20 years. The mean nasal index in the investigated adults was 42.1 ± 8.4 in males, and females were 31.7 ± 3.8, respectively. The dominant nasal type was Leptorrhine in male 46.5% (n=34) and female was Mesorrhine 41.4 % (n=29) respectively. Conclusion: This study can help in understanding the need for those who want a more "shapely" nose. Forensic medicine, Genetic counseling, Anthropological research, Cosmetic, reconstructive surgery, Orthodontics, and specific manufacturing industries, benefit from age- and gender-based data of the study.
