Nature has bestowed on us a very rich botanical wealth and a large number of diverse types of plants grow in different parts of the country. Plants are the richest resource of drugs in traditional systems of medicine, modern medicines, nutraceuticals, food supplements, folk medicines, pharmaceutical intermediates and chemical entities for synthetic drugs. Medicinal plants are a source of great economic value all over the world. Ocimum sanctum Linn (Tulsi) is a well-known plant used in the Indian system of medicine. This paper reviews the therapeutic potential of this plant in treatment of various medical and oral disorders.

Macrodontia is a rare dental anomaly that refers to teeth appears larger than normal. It can be generalized or isolated macrodontia. Isolated macrodontia involving premolar is very rare. This case report presents an unusual unilateral molarifrom macrodontia of mandibular second premolar.

Background: Traumatic injuries caused to anterior teeth are most common. Emergency management of fractured fragments is necessary, for preserving their vitalities and for retaining aesthetics in an economical way. Various methods are available for restoring fractured, uncomplicated teeth, such as reattachment of fractured fragments, composite restoration. But only limited data is available on evaluation of the strength of reattached fractured fragments. Hence, the present study was designed. Objectives: The objective of this study was to evaluate the fracture strength recovery of re-attached anterior fractured tooth fragment by using different re-attachment techniques. Methodology: Forty human upper central incisions were used in this study. The roots of the teeth were confined in a special device (holder) and adapted in a Universal Testing Machine. Load was applied to each tooth in bucco-lingual direction, by using a small stainless steel ball. The force which was required to fracture the tooth was recorded. Both the fragment and remaining fractured tooth was restored by using four reattachment techniques - simple reattachment, external chamfer, over contour and internal dentinal groove. Specimens were loaded in same pre-determined area which was used in procedure to obtain fragments. The force required to detach each fragment was recorded and it was correlated with the fracture strength of an intact tooth and that which was obtained after doing restorative procedures for all groups i.e. fracture strength recovery. Results: Technique I (simple reattachment) and Technique 2 (external chamfer) showed fracture strength recoveries of 44.3% and 60.6% respectively. However, these values were lower than those which were obtained by usingTechnique 3 (Over contour) -86.8% and Technique 4 (internal dentinal groove) -89.5%. Conclusion: Over contour and internal dentinal groove reattachment is a preferred technique as compared to the other reattachment techniques which were tested.

Cherubism is a rare congenital disease resulting in malformation of the jaw. It occurs before the age of 5 years and regress spontaneously after puberty. It can result into enlargement of the jaw bone, tooth displacement, facial disfigurement and psychological trauma to patient. Hence, the understanding about the condition, its progression and management is necessary. © Journal of Natural Science, Biology and Medicine.

Background: The importance of dermatoglyphics in comparative human population studies hardly needs emphasis, for the simple reason that dermatoglyphic traits are under genetic control. Besides, they are known to vary considerably owing to the fact that they are controlled by many additive genes. Material & Methods: The study reports on bilateral palm prints among 200 unrelated individuals (100 controls and 100 Jain). The parameter studied were TFRC (Total Finger Ridge Count), AFRC (Absolute Finger Ridge Count), Finger Tip Ridge patterns. Furuhata's index was calculated and results obtained were compared for both groups using statistical tools. Result: The mean TFRC and atd angle was statistically significant in Jain population as compare to general population, while AFRC has not shown any statistical significance. Finger tip ridge pattern for each finger along with Furuhata's index was also calculated and shown remarkable difference between two groups of population. Conclusion: In Jain community ulnar loops being present in more numbers than in general population. Reverse is true for whorls, which are more in general population than in Jains. These findings can be of immense help for medicolegal experts.
