  The aim of this study was to determined demographic, clinical and radiographic features of Central Giant Cell Granuloma (CGCG) of the jaws, for the first time, in north east Iran. In this retrospective study, records of patients with definitive diagnosis of CGCG were extracted from the archive of our faculty from 2004 to 2007. The patient ’s age, sex, duration and clinical features of the lesions, were evaluated. Radiographs were evaluated for radiographic patterns. Of 1232 existing files in our archive (between 2004 and 2008), 18 cases were diagnosed as CGCG. The age range of our patients was between 7 to 65 years with the mean age of 21.5 years. Most of cases (61.1%) were presented in females and 7 cases in males. Most lesions were located in the mandible (83.3%). The most common finding recorded in our patients was a Painless bony expansion of the jaw. Cortical perforation and soft tissue expansion was reported in 9 cases. In most cases, a well defined multilocular radiolucency was observed in OPG, while tooth displacement was seen only in 7 cases. Although, demographic and clinical findings of patients with CGCG in our area were similar to other studies, but some differences were observed in radiographic examination.

  Schwannoma is usually a solitary slow growing and encapsulated soft tissue or intrabony lesion. This tumor is often associated with the nerve sheath.

In this report, a 14-year-old male patient with an ancient schwannoma of gingiva discussed. he was referred to oral medicine department of Mashhad dental school with Chief complaint of an asymptomatic enlargement of gingiva and histopathologic examination recommended. Based on clinical, histologic and immunohistochemical findings, the diagnosis of ancient schwannoma was made Ancient schwannoma is very rare in gingiva but the dentist must note the clinical presentation of periodontitis and any gingival enlargement should not be considered periodontitis.

  The use of mouthwash has increased because of attention to oral hygiene. Herbal mouthwashes have fewer side effects and are more economic than similar chemical drugs. In this study, the antimicrobial effects of ten herbal extracts on Streptococcus mutans were compared with chlorhexidine. Thirty grams of ten plants including thyme, mint, garlic, cinnamon, chamomile, tea tree, clove, spearmint, sage, and rosemary were dissolved in 100 mm of pure methanol and placed on a shaker for 48 h. Then, after passing the solution through a filter, they were put in an incubator at 37 centigrade degee for 48 h. Streptococcus mutans was cultured on blood agar. Chlorhexidine discs were used as positive controls while methanol and blank discs were used as negative controls. After 24 h the diameters of the halos indicative of lack of growth in each disc were measured with a pair of calipers. The zone diameters around each disc were compared with chlorhexidine using T test analysis. The inhibitory zone has observed around the Rosemary extract discs. Rosemary was found as a potent antimicrobial plant. More studies are suggested for production of herbal mouthwashes.

  This case report is an interesting pigmented lesion presenting as a melanoma like appearance, with synchronous occurrence of calcifying hyperplastic dental follicle. A 13-year-old boy was referred to Oral Medicine Department of Mashhad Dentistry School complaining of a dark growing pigmentation lasting from two years ago. Recently rapid growth and pain was emerged. Plaques like, gray-black pigmentation (1.2x1 cm diameter) on maxillary gingiva overlying semi-erupted right permanent canine with firm consistency and non-homogenous color and irregular margins was observed in clinical examination. Periapical radiography showed no abnormal finding. Oral malignant melanoma was notified as the first diagnosis and biopsy was performed. On histopathologic examination a nevus like lesion penetrating to deep portions (e.g., reduced enamel epithelium of semi-erupted canine) beside a calcifying component (type A and B calcifications) was seen. A diagnosis of synchronous occurrence of deep penetrating nevus and single calcifying hyperplastic dental follicle was established.
