BACKGROUND: Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (HED) comprises a large group of inherited disorders of ectodermal structures, characterized by hypo-/anhidrosis, hypotrichosis and hypo-/oligo-/anodontia. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to systematically assess the spectrum of prosthodontic approaches with regard to the patients' age and to provide clinical implications for practicing dentists. METHODS: An electronic and manual search was conducted in four databases (Medline, LIVIVO, Cochrane Library, Web of Science Core Collection)...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to determine the effectiveness of a mandibular advancement device in a sample of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome patients by the evaluation of respiratory and neurophysiologic parameters and clinical symptoms. Second, the influence of certain predictor factors related with the patient and the intraoral device, were considered in the final response with this treatment option. METHODS: Forty-one patients constituted the final sample. Outcomes were measured using polysomnography, Epworth sleepiness scale and an analogue visual snoring scale, before treatment and once the device was properly titrated...

Associations between dental and chronic-systemic diseases were observed frequently in medical research, however the findings of this research have so far found little relevance in everyday clinical treatment. Major problems are the assessment of evidence for correlations between such diseases and how to integrate current medical knowledge into the intersectoral care of dentists and general practitioners. On the example of dental and chronic-systemic diseases, the Dent@Prevent project develops an interdisciplinary decision support system (DSS), which provides the specialists with information relevant for the treatment of such cases...

The objective of this study was to explore the therapeutic limitations experienced by a panel of special-care dentists in France when treating patients with sustained limitations of their decision-making abilities. We used a Delphi technique conducted in three rounds from 01 June 2014 to 30 September 2015. A first questionnaire comprising open-ended questions was addressed to 72 panellists. A content analysis of the returned questionnaires served to draft a second questionnaire comprising closed-ended questions; this was sent to the 28 panellists who responded in the first round...

INTRODUCTION: Today, esthetic enhancement is one of the main reasons why patients seek orthodontic treatment. Governed by the canons of beauty dictated by our society, the smile is a key component in this quest for perfect beauty. Hence, the orthodontist is often the first specialist to be consulted by adolescents, but also, more and more, by adults as well. Using simple tools, the practitioner must be able to make a precise analysis of the patient combining both orthodontic and periodontal examinations with an esthetic periodontal diagnosis...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to assess dentists' ability to correctly identify and classify development defects of enamel (DDE). METHODS: The modified DDE (MDDE) index was used to classify enamel defects into two types: (1) enamel hypoplasia-pitted, grooved, or missing enamel; or (2) enamel opacity-translucency of enamel not caused by dental caries or fluorosis (can be either demarcated or diffuse). A panel of six experts selected and scored 36 images using the MDDE, and the consensus score was used as the gold standard score in the evaluation of survey respondents...

For decades, dental educators have noted changes in predoctoral dental education in pediatric dentistry, beginning with shifts in patients' characteristics and their availability for dental schools. During the same period, national data exposed a lingering dental caries epidemic in U.S. children yet reported more treatment of young poor children. The professional literature suggests a reluctance of the general dental community to care for children, particularly the very young who would most benefit from a dental home...

On account of tooth wear, a 30-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman were referred to a clinic for specialised dental services by their general dentist. The man suffered from degradation of hard dental tissues. He was not in pain but had some functional problems. In addition, the diminishing aesthetics bothered him. The woman suffered from pain frequently, had mild functional complaints and a deep bite. Treatment of pathological tooth wear begins with a sound diagnosis and investigating and eliminating aetiological factors...
