Hemangioma is a benign vascular tumor that affects 3%-10% of the population and usually does not require specific treatment due to spontaneous regression. The purpose of this paper is to present a case report of a child having been born prematurely and diagnosed with hemangioma in the head and neck, emphasizing the dentofacial changes and treatment used to provide care. Severe fibrous scars were found in the perioral region and below the ear that limited the patient's ability to open her mouth. The child exhibited anterior open bite as well as dental caries in the lower jaw, hypomineralization, and enamel hypoplasia...

Actinomyces spp. are located without displaying any pathogenic effect in the oral flora. However, the disruption of oral microenvironmental balance, mucosal tissue integrity, and defense system can cause microorganisms to settle on deep periodontal tissues and to induce pathologic reactions. The present case report describes erythematous and desquamative lesions with pseudomembrane limited to the gingiva. In the histopathologic examination, Actinomyces colonies were isolated from the gingiva. On the basis of histopathologic and laboratory findings, the lesions were diagnosed as Actinomyces- associated lesions of the gingiva...

One of the rarest entities of fibro-osseous lesions that arise within the craniofacial bones is Juvenile ossifying fibroma (JOF). It is an intraosseous expansile lesion of the jaw that imitate odontogenic lesions. WHO has described two distinct histopathological variants of JOF; trabecular and psammomatoid. Histologically, they are characterized by the presence of fibrous connective tissue stroma along with osteoblastic and osteoclastic cells. Clinical, characteristics show an early age of onset, typical histological patterns, high rate of aggressive behavior and recurrence...

Juvenile Paget's disease (JPD), a rare genetic skeletal disorder characterized by accelerated bone turnover with elevated levels of serum alkaline phosphatase, presents in early childhood. We report a female patient with typical features of JPD with dental finding who remained undiagnosed until 18 years of age. Scarcity of this disease in the Indian literature and need for timely diagnosis to avert progression of disease thus incited us to report this case.

In maxillary defects, role of a prosthodontist is to rehabilitate the intra- and extra-oral structures and to endow with the normal function of mastication, speech, deglutition, and esthetics. Malignancies are common in the oral region and are treated usually through surgical intervention. Surgical intervention creates anatomical defects creating communication between oral and nasal cavity. Patients pose difficulties while performing normal functions such as swallowing and speaking, due to this communication...

Twin Block appliance has been widely used for the treatment of Class II malocclusions in growing subjects, due to its versatility and its highly compliance nature. There are certain clinical indications where functional appliances can be used successfully in Class II malocclusion as in a growing patient. In using these appliances, the main concern is compliance of patients. This appliance simplifies the progression of treatment with fixed orthodontic braces later on. In this case, a 14-year-old adolescent was treated with Twin Block appliance followed by fixed appliances for finishing and detailing...

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dislocation in children is extremely rare. In our case, an 18-month-old child presented with a history of inability to close her mouth. To confirm the clinical diagnosis, a computed tomogram was taken. Clinical examination and X-ray of the TMJ revealed bilateral TMJ dislocation. Bilateral TMJ reduction was achieved manually after giving analgesia and procedural sedation. This is one of the few case reports of an acute dislocation in a toddler.
