100 children were seen in private Dental Practice for the presence of teeth in unusual sites of jaws out of which 40 had the erupted teeth in unusual sites of the jaws. There was a strong co-relation between the presence of misplaced teeth and h/o trauma during pregnancy. These were found to be behavioural problems like aggressiveness, thefts, from home, and school, poor academic performance, often got into revenge both at school and school and at home. It seems that out of the children that were born during trauma in pregnancy such as Divorce (Talaq, Separation from husband for any reason which is prevented as far as possible by Quran in such conditions ), were found to have irregularity and unusual site, with problematic emotional and social behavioural patterns. Hence, maternal stress during pregnancy has an impact both on dental irregularity and behavioural patterns of the child.

Key Words: Dental Anamolies, Intr-Uterine Trauma, Behavioural problems.


Canine breadth is 7 mm 9 mm seen in mid-line of lower jaw close to the occlusal line. Cusp of Carabelli, D.B. (Ankolkar's Dental Bulge ), was observed in 35% have been source of additional forensic identifications in dental anatomical variations. 35 % amongst 100 children accompanied by their single parent or guardian gave information about their behavioural patterns of their children as aggressive, often fight with other children, play alone, bullied by other children gets on better with elders, often unhappy, easily distracted, nervous, often lies, cheats, steals from home, school or elsewhere. The study of Laura focuses about the adverse events in uterine such as maternal deficiencies, infection and hypoxia. The hypothesis was originally derived from neuropathological changes in patients with established schizophrenia that are highly suggestive of impaired neural development occurring around mid-gestation. Increasingly it appears that gestational timings and the severity of the result / s plays critical role in subsequent behavioural out come. Supporting the neuro developmental hypothesis, recent studies have demonstrated that serious mental illnesses such as schizophrenia and afferent disorders are associated firstly with behavioural abnormalities that are present from early childhood, and secondly with ongoing neural injury on serial magnetic resonance imaging through late childhood and adolescence. These data suggest that alterations in brain development during foetal life lead to an evolving damages over the courses of childhood before finally being overtly expressed in early adulthood. Current data suggest that the initial loss of cells in utero leads to a long term remodelling of the brain that is mediated up by regulation of physiological apoptosis. Those adult illnesses present with early behavioural and physiological clues are progressive

Material and Method

The observation was conducted amongst 100 children between the ages of 6-12 years. Intra-oral examination was conducted and the parent / guardian was asked questions about the child's behaviour.



The author found some degree of displacement of teeth. Interestingly such children's behaviour were found out from their single parent / guardian .


It has been proven that any trauma , injury or insult to the developing dental bud during gestational period by infection ( syphilis ) or chemical ( like tetracycline and fluorides ) or deficiencies ( like calcium ) lead to anatomical variations and displacements.


There is strong association between displacement of teeth and behavioural patterns as shown by this study.

It may be possible that social welfare, religious, groups and psychiatrists help such persons to implement spiritual and pharmacological interventions to improve their social functioning.
