Aim: Aim of our research was to evaluate the amount of stress as well as performance pressure on the oral hygiene in our study participants.
Methodology: Survey was conducted in 200 patients who had reported to various private clinics over a period of 6 months. Questionnaire was given having 12 questions, which helped us assess their stress levels related to their oral hygiene status. Descriptive analysis was carried out with the data received from the study participants.
Results: Maximum participants had moderate stress levels (47%), whereas around 34 % experienced oral health problems. 67% were conscious about their appearance, and their smile. Only 14 % went for regular dental check-ups, which further shows less awareness for preventive care.
Conclusion: Our findings suggest that individuals with greater perceived stress also report poorer oral health. These findings may warrant greater attention be paid to the role of psychological stress in the development of oral disease.

Aim: The purpose of our research was to assess the vertical height changes after orthognathic surgery during anterio-posterior movement using cephalometric analysis. Methodology: Immediate Postsurgical and one-year postsurgical lateral cephalograms of 10 adult patients (age group - 17 to 40 years, with a mean age of 22.2 years) who had been treated successfully by maxillary Le-Fort I osteotomy were obtained. Comparisons were made between T1-T2 to assess the changes following surgery and to evaluate the stability, one year following the surgery using 5 horizontal, 5 vertical linear and 2 angular measurement. A paired t‑test was used to analyse the paired observations. Results: The incisors extrusion was limited to an average of 1.2 mm and the molars showed a 0.2 mm movement. The upper incisor showed a significant posterior movement. The upper molar also showed a posterior movement but to a lesser extent when compared to the incisors. Conclusion: There was a significant reduction in the facial height and significant anterior movement of maxilla after surgery. Even after one year of surgery, negligible amount of relapse was recorded except at the incisors.
