Thus, the model of competition has shifted from acquiring new consumers to retaining the existing one and moreover luring them away from rival companies. In accordance with the above mentioned statements, this study focus on developing a theoretical framework for consumer retention strategies for telecom service industry in India.

Mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the minor salivary glands though malignant, often displays clinical characteristics similar to benign tumors. Although it is the most common of all malignancies of salivary glands, and the palate is reported to be a frequently affected site, the incidence of palatal mucoepidermoid carcinoma is still quite rare. Proper guidelines regarding treatment of such low grade tumors have not been defined. The aim of this article is to present a case of low grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the palate and discuss the possibility of conservative approach for treatment

Supernumerary teeth are extra teeth in comparison to normal dentition. Mesiodens in the most commonly encountered supernumerary teeth. Mesiodens refers to an unerupted supernumerary tooth in the midline of maxilla, between the central incisors. They may occur as single or multiple. But mostly they are seen as single and multiple cases that have been reported are extremely rare. Moreover they erupt in a normal sequence as that of natural teeth. It is present as a conical shape crown with small size and completely formed root or may mimic a natural tooth. It can also remain unerupted and cause problems such as malocclusion and they are detected incidental findings on routine radiographic examination. This report present two rare cases, first in which 2 mesiodens are present one having a conical crown and other having a molariform crown, and the second case in which an inverted impacted mesioden was incidentally found on routine radiographic examination.

Author:Benjamin Premkumar, Thiruneervannan, Hari S Prabhu
Volume: 2 | Issue no: 3-2016 | Pagination: 184-186
A Middle aged women reported to our out-patient department with swelling in the chin and intra-oral pus discharge with the history of frequent recurrence for the past six months. On examination a diffuse swelling in the chin and draining multiple sinuses were noted in the lower labial vestibule. Further interrogation revealed wooden stick injury to the lower lip at work. All associated teeth were found to be healthy and vital. Intraoral oral periapical radiograph revealed altered trabecular pattern. Following resistance at a particular site during drainage, further surgical exploration and curettage was done. A wooden particle measuring 1.5 x 0.5 cms was retrieved. All the sinus tracts and granulation tissues were excised and debrided. The wound were closed in layers with appropriate sutures. Periodic reviewing over a period of three months was done. Alveolar and labial mucosa was healed satisfactorily. Radiograph revealed normal trabecular pattern with healing alveolar bone.

Volume: 2 | Issue no: 3-2016 | Pagination: 180-183
Tooth agenesis is a condition where teeth are missing due to developmental failure. It is often seen in one-quarter of general population making it the most common of human developmental anomalies and it may or may not be associated with syndromes. Oligodontia is a rare hereditary or developmental anomaly showing absence of 6 or more teeth with the incidence varying from 0.08% to 0.16%. The genes expressed in embryonic tissues associated with non-syndromic tooth agenesis are found to be MSX1 and PAX9 genes. These genes play a key role in tooth development, where PAX9 and MSX1 are responsible for odontogenesis in multicuspids and incisors respectively. This case report describes a rare familial presentation of non-syndromic hereditary oligodontia in a 20-year-old female, showing absence of ten teeth involving first and second molars in all four quadrants and mandibular second premolar in third and fourth quadrant. Subject?s father showed missing second molars in all four quadrants along with missing right mandibular first molar. Her sister had missing first and second molars in all quadrants while her brother had missing first and second molars, mandibular incisors and second premolars. The consequences of missing teeth are numerous as causing inconvenience in mastication, speech, etc. Considering the level of complexity in the management of oligodontia patients, treatment should begin with early diagnosis to prevent future functional and esthetic problems.

Volume: 2 | Issue no: 3-2016 | Pagination: 170-175
Hansen et al first described proliferative verrucous leukoplakia (PVL) in the year of 1985. It is a rare form of oral leukoplakia which occurs as a slow growing and becomes multifocal and as the time progresses it becomes exophytic, wart like and ultimately transforms to squamous carcinoma. It has a high recurrence rate and also high malignant transformation rate. Etiology is still under the sheets. Though there has been association of human papilloma virus with its occurrence. The diagnosis and the management is still unclear. A case of proliferative verrucous leukoplakia has been discussed with its etiology, diagnosis, management and prognosis.
