Enamel formation is a highly coordinated process. The enamel protein matrix, secreted by the ameloblasts, contains three main proteins: amelogenin, enamelin and ameloblastin. These proteins are specific to enamel and are degrade by specific proteases, MMP20 and KLK4. Human mutations in genes coding for the enamel proteinases cause variable degrees of hypomineralization.
First permanent molar (FPM) is important because of the contrast between its major role in maintaining the balance of the dento-maxillary apparatus and its increased caries vulnerability. Because of the early appearance on dental arches, and of having an occlusal surface with numerous pits and fissures, it is quickly exposed to the action of factors with carious potential.
Disability is the consequence of a deficiency that can be physical, cognitive, mental, sensory, emotional, developmental, or a combination of these . Currently, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 15% of the global population has different types of disabilities (̴1 billion people)
The 24th National Congress with international participation of the Unified National Romanian Dental Associations
As tradition calls and despite all the difficulties this year brought, the 24th Congress of the Unified Romanian Dental Associations (UNAS) took place in October (7-9), for the first time as an on-line event.
The first exclusively ONLINE edition of the UNAS Congress – a full success and a turning point in Romanian Dental Education
Held between October 7 and 9, 2020, (I was to say …) in Bucharest, the XXIV National Edition with International Participation of the Congress of the National Union of Dental Associations will represent for all of us, organizers, participants, readers , sponsors, a memorable event that will remain in the history of the Association as the FIRST (and perhaps the only) ONLINE EDITION exclusively.
Scientific Abstracts of the 24th Congress of the Unified National Romanian Dental Associations, October 7–9, 2020
Dentistry is the most dynamic medical field because it has undergone the most numerous and significant changes in the last 25 years. One of the ten important challenges that dentistry has been and is subject to is the package of normative acts developed as a result of the current pandemic. Adaptation to the new conditions is necessary.
Special health care needs include any physical, developmental, mental, sensory, behavioural, cognitive, or emotional impairment or limiting condition that requires medical management, health care intervention, and/or use of specialized services or programs.
Summary Purpose: To assess the risk of dental caries in children during the correction of dento-maxillary anomalies (DMA). Material and method: A case-control study has
Abstract The level of knowledge and individual concern to health are important and influence healthy or risky behaviors for health. Aim: to assess the oral
Abstract Peri-implant inflammation is frequently met in the absence of both patient and professional administered plaque removal. Aim: to assess the habits the behaviour related
Abstract Secondary dento-alveolar disharmonies, resulting from partial edentations and periodontal disease of upper frontal teeth, are often accompanied by issues of existing space. The complex
It is well known that the incidence of dental diseases has been different in different periods of development of humanity and that lately it has increased substantially.
Prospective-Retrospective Comparison of Initial versus Final Biomechanical Score for Single-Unit Crowns supported by Implants Placed Using the Osteotome Technique Sinus Lift
Key words: prospective-retrospective study, single-unit implant-supported crown, osteotome sinus-lift technique, Renouard-Rangert biomechanical risk factors, initial biomechanical score, final biomechanical score.
This pilot studywas to investigate correlations between molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH) and dental fear. Data were compiled from the dental records of 90 8-12-years-old children with mild/severeMIH. Dental examinations were performed by one calibrated examiner (BS) in university dental clinic, after the children had brushed their teeth, using an intraoral mirror.
School is the ideal environment for education because medical information reaches a large number of children who are in an important stage of behavioral development. Aim: to assess the behaviors towards oral health among two groups of students aged between 9 and 13, from Bucharest and Tehran.
The paper reviews oral health issues and ways to improve them in people with disabilities. Currently, people with disabilities represent 15% of the population (over 1 billion), about 95 million being children between 0 and 14 years (WHO, 2015). For many reasons (limited ability to perform routine personal oral care, oral respiration, sweetened medicines, impaired masticatory function, associated dental abnormalities, etc.), these people, and especially children, are considered to be extremely vulnerable for oral diseases.
Asthma is defined as a chronic inflammatory condition characterised by variable and reversible episodes of airflow obstruction and bronchospasm. Asthma is the commonest chronic disease in childhood. Pediatric asthma is a common chronic condition with wide-ranging implications for children’s health, their families, and the health care system.
