  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.

  The aim of this study was to locate the mandibular foramen in relation to the occlusal plane using panoramic radiography in 7-10-year-old children referred to the Mashhad School of Dentistry. A total of 200 panoramic radiographs and 200 madibular dental casts related to patients aged 7-10 years were available for examination applying Planmeca software. Mesiodistal width of the endmost fully erupted tooth on both left and right sides of each cast was measured. Having scanned the radiographs, the measured widths were input in the software in millimeter to calibrate the radiographs magnification. Then, points of study were determined and lines were drawn from the most anterosuperior point of the mandibular canal to the occlusal plane, as well as to the anterior, posterior and inferior borders of ramus on the scanned radiographs by the software. Also gonial angle was measured by the software. Finally, a total of four lines and one angle were available for each side on the radiographs. In about 4% of 7-year-olds, who were all girls, the most anterosuperior point of the mandibular canal was acquired above the occlusal plane. As the children reached the age of 10, this amount increased to 86% in both sexes. The gonial angle had a negative correlation with the distances between the most anterosuperior points of the mandibular canal to each mandibular border. The inferior alveolar nerve anesthesia should be administered above the occlusal plane in 10-year-old children.
