In this trial oral and dental status of 30 children (ages 5-12) who suffer from ADHD and treated with ritalin will be evaluated. Parameters that will be checked are the following: DMFT - decay, missing, filling teeth for dental status, GI - gingival index, PI - plaque index for periodontal status. OJ - over jet and OB - over bite for inter-maxillary relations and susceptibility for dental trauma. In addition these parameters will be collected for 30 age and sex match healthy children.
