Nasopharyngeal obstruction by adenoid enlargement is one of the main causes of mouth breathing. Cephalometric radiographs and rhinomanometric tests to evaluate nasal obstruction have been available for several decades. Various lines and areas have been interpreted by number of investigators to implicate the enlarged adenoid in a casual relationship with mouth breathing and the subsequent effect on vertical facial growth. The aim of this paper is to review lateral cephalometric tracing methods combined with newer Auto-cad surface area measurement program so that assessment of the nasopharyngeal free airway space can be done based on it, before more rigorous ear-nose-throat follow up is needed for the patient.

<![CDATA[Report of a case of Turner's syndrome with localized aggressive periodontitis]]> https://www.researchpad.co/product?articleinfo=5abd2948463d7e64cbbdc9de

Turner's syndrome is a disorder in females characterized by the absence of all or part of a normal second sex chromosome. It is typically characterized by the combination of physical features and cytogenetics in females. Physical features include short stature, primary amenorrhea, hypogonadism, low hair line at the back of the neck, and digital anomalies. Most affected patients have a 45XO monosomy, but the presence of an abnormal chromosome or mosaicism of 45X with another cell line can also fulfill the criteria. Features seen in the oral cavity of patients diagnosed with Turner's syndrome include high palatal vault, hypoplastic mandible, prematurely erupting teeth, and orthodontic anomalies. A case of Turner's syndrome with localized aggressive periodontitis has been reported here.

Orthodontic therapy has a big role in the treatment and prevention of malpositions. The signs and symptoms experienced by patients with occlusal trauma are mobility of teeth, temperomandibular joint pain, pain on mastication and periodontal disease. Early diagnosis, proper treatment plan and correction of malocclusion can lead to a successful outcome. Lack of awareness of orthodontic treatment in patients with occlusal trauma can even lead to loss of tooth structure.
