• defects
  • It has also been proposed that developmental dental defects were associated with long-term breastfeeding due to exposure to dioxin. (wikipedia.org)
  • CDC's
  • Despite this fact, the CDC's cost-benefit analyses of water fluoridation have never considered the increased costs associated with treating the effects of fluorosis. (fluoridealert.org)
  • The CDC's national survey actually understates the fluorosis rate in fluoridated areas, since it includes children from both fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas. (fluoridealert.org)
  • tissues
  • Cariousness at this age is caused by the developmental defect of hard dental tissues composition and by an inappropriate diet (sweet drinks at night, a pacifier with honey). (dentisty.org)
  • restorative
  • Preventive and restorative dental care is very important as well as considerations for esthetic issues since the crown are yellow from exposure of dentin due to enamel loss. (wikipedia.org)
  • As noted by the CDC, "at present there are no data that define the number or cost of esthetic restorative procedures performed to change the appearance of enamel fluorosis. (fluoridealert.org)
  • decay
  • This has led some dental researchers, such as the former President of the Canadian Association of Dental Research, Dr. Hardy Limeback, to speculate that "we are now spending more money treating dental fluorosis than we would spend treating new decay if water fluoridation halted. (fluoridealert.org)
  • At this age , dental decay of molars and incisors may already develop more frequently. (dentisty.org)
  • clinical
  • The adequate diagnosis of fluorosis can be diagnosed by visual clinical examination. (wikipedia.org)
  • Detection of a dental focus is based on an anamnesis (the relationship between a basic disease and a pathological state of mouth) and on the clinical and X-ray examinations. (dentisty.org)
  • Histologically, hypomineralization is the common feature and several etiologies stand behind their clinical appearance. (dentalnews.com)
  • permanent
  • Dental Trauma: Mechanical trauma to the primary tooth may cause disturbance to the maturation phase of enamel formation, which may result in enamel opacities on the permanent successors. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • Within fluoridated communities, studies have found that the rate of fluorosis varies by race, with the highest rates found among black children . (fluoridealert.org)
  • condition
  • In most cases, males with an X-linked form of this condition experience more severe dental abnormalities than affected females.Recent genetic studies suggest that the cause of a significant proportion of amelogenesis imperfecta cases remains to be discovered. (wikipedia.org)
  • children's
  • Kids Dental encourages parents to take an active role in their children's oral health and one way to do so is to supervise their brushing habits. (kidsdental.ca)
  • index
  • Others include the tooth surface fluorosis index (Horowitz et al. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dean's fluorosis index was first published in 1934 by H. Trendley Dean. (wikipedia.org)
  • Proposed by Thylstrup and Fejerskov in 1978, the TF index represents a logical extension of Dean's index, incorporating modern understanding of the underlying pathology of fluorosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • The increase in dental fluorosis is particularly evident when using the "Community Fluorosis Index" (CFI) as the measure of fluorosis. (fluoridealert.org)
  • The aim and objective of this study was to establish the relationship of oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) as assessed by the Child Perception Questionnaire (CPQ 11-14) with the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need (IOTN) and the child's apprehension with his/her dental appearance and how upset the child would feel if he/she is unable to obtain orthodontic treatment.

  • present
  • NGF-R is present in the condensing ectomesenchymal cells of the dental papilla in the early cap stage tooth germ and plays multiple roles during morphogenetic and cytodifferentiation events in the tooth. (wikipedia.org)
