Maxillo-facial trauma cases are very common now-a-days. Immediately after trauma these maxillo-facial injuries appear quite formidable. However, comforting the patient or parents is very important. Sometimes stitching of facial or oral wounds (inside mouth) is required. Immediately after the injury facial swelling comes up. Of course, various radiographs (x-rays) are done to find out fractures...»...

Sometimes we come across patients who have teeth which appear chalky white. Most of these patients are blissfully unaware of this fact. However, they are required to be told about the reasons of such chalkiness and why they can’t take their oral hygiene for granted. I shall explain this condition by taking examples of three...»...

It is indeed unfortunate that in India we talk at length about primary prevention of dental health disorders. However, when it comes to reality — masses dental health tells a totally different story. There is hardly any concept of regular periodic dental check-ups. A few days back a young man of 20years came to me...»...

Our dental teachers used to remind us again and again that history taking and listening to the patient is extremely important. I wish to underline with the help of a very small example the importance of a careful history taking and listening to him/her with our ears and eyes open. This boy whose dental photograph...»...

Seems to be a silly question — after a child breaks his tooth, where could it go?. Anybody would say that broken tooth would fall on the ground -that’s all. No, i am afraid that it may not be right always. Let me explain it with the example of a 3-year old boy who was [...]...

Calling attention?… but whose? — both patient’s as well as dentist. Patient should not ignore this and even if the patient does not know about this and dentist must look for such tell-tale signs during regular periodic dental visits of persons donning artificial caps. This gentleman whose dental photograph you are looking here is having [...]...
