REVIEW ARTICLE
Stress and its Implications in Periodontics : A Review
Rizwan M Sanadi, KL Vandana
January-March 2005, 17(1):8-10
The possible role of mental and psychosocial entities in oral diseases has become the subject of several studies. A study suggested that different bacterial levels were found under stress and relaxation conditions, which supports the concept that stress may contribute to dent caries and relaxation may have an anticaries effect. The relationship between increased work stress and poor oral health status was also reported. In many cases, no causative factor can be found to explain sudden episodes of tissue breakdown. Stressful life events are often presumed to be associated with disease progression, although it has been difficult to prove any causative relationship. Hence it is important to recognize patients who are in stress and to be able to advise patients about the possible effects of stress on general as well as oral health of the patient.

RESEARCH AND EMERGING TRENDS
Trace Elements and Microbiological Analysis
Mansi Ankolekar, Freny Karjodkar
January-March 2005, 17(1):11-17
"Theories born of bare experience and meager knowledge led to discoveries demanding and exacting martyrdom, even death, before the truth unfolded itself for us and future generations." In an era where humans are predisposed to infection easily, a lot of importance is given to food quality standards. Gutkha per say is not included in consumable items by authorities defining standards for food quality. But gutkha / pan masala is chewed frequently, which can be gauged by the fact that the Indian Market for pan masala is worth more than two hundred million rupees. This very fact, underlined the need to evaluate the hygiene status of these products. Oral Submucous Fibrosis is known and established to be precancerous. Hence, it is important to evaluate the precancerous potential of areca nut and it's products and also it's role in fibrosis.

CLINICAL ARTICLE
Bifid Mandibular Condyle: A rare in plenty
VG Mahima, Karthikeya Patil, A Divya, Shwetha Shetty, Madhur Kapoor, Shivanand Bagewadi, Shalini Kalia
January-March 2005, 17(1):3-7
The bifid mandibular condyle has also been termed as Double Headed Condyle or Condylar Duplication. Bifid condyle was first reported by Hrdlicka in 1941. Since then, to the best of our knowledge, about 49 cases of bifid condyle have been reported in medical literature. We present here six cases of bifid mandibular condyle that we encountered during the span of one year. These were incidental findings on panoramic radiographs and were later confirmed with coronal computed tomographs. This article also reviews the relevant literature.

Bilateral Odontogenic Keratocyst - A Case Report
Manjula Hebbale, Anjana Bagewadi, Vaishali Keluskar, Rajshekhar Halli
January-March 2005, 17(1):24-27
The odontogenic keratocyst is a cyst of odontogenic origin that exhibits a keratinised epithelial lining. Odontogenic keratocyst has been the topic of numerous investigators and is known for its potentially aggressive behavior and significant rate of recurrence. This cyst often occurs as a solitary lesion in the angle of the mandible, however in some, multiple such cysts may occur in association with a syndrome called "Nevoid basal cell syndrome". Here we report a case of a bilateral odontogenic keratocyst in a 60 yr old male patient, wherein multiple cysts were present but, without any other associated manifestations.

Aggressive Central Giant Cell Granuloma Case Report & Review of Literature
C Krithika, S Jayachandran
January-March 2005, 17(1):38-42
First described by Jaffe in 1953, the Central Giant Cell Granuloma appears to be an enigmatic lesion unique to the jaws. The true nature of Central Giant Cell Granuloma remains unknown, despite considerable discussion and controversy in literature. Characteristically affecting the anterior mandibular region in women less than 30 years of age, the Central Giant Cell Granuloma exhibits a spectrum of clinical behaviour ranging from Non-Aggressive to Aggressive variants. We report one such case of Aggressive Central Giant Cell Granuloma, which presented rather atypically in a male patient over 50 years of age in the posterior mandibular region.
