1/153. Orthodontic considerations in individuals with down syndrome: a case report.

    The skeletal and soft tissue features, aberrations in dental development, and periodontal and caries characteristics of down syndrome related to orthodontic treatment are discussed. A case report describing the successful orthodontic treatment of a 13-year-old boy with down syndrome and a severe malocclusion is presented.

2/153. Treatment of an impacted dilacerated maxillary central incisor.

    Impacted incisor With Dilaceration refers to a dental deformity characterized by an angulation between crown and root causing noneruption of the incisor. Surgical extraction used to be the first choice in treating the severely dilacerated incisor. In this article, a horizontally impacted and dilacerated maxillary central incisor was diagnosed radiographically. By combining two stages of the crown exposure surgery with light force orthodontic traction, the impacted dilacerated incisor was successfully moved into proper position. However, long-term monitoring of the stability and periodontal health is critical after orthodontic traction.

3/153. Prosthodontic rehabilitation of an anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia patient: a clinical report.

    This clinical report describes the characteristics and prosthodontic restoration of a young male patient with anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia. With proper care and prosthodontic treatment, the patient can enjoy a relatively normal life. It is important that the patient and his parents fully understand the dental problems related to his physiologic and psychologic conditions. The need for continued dental treatment is necessary.

4/153. Implant-surgical and prosthetic rehabilitation of patients with multiple dental aplasia: a clinical report.

    The expanded experience with oral implants and supplementary augmentation techniques has opened new possibilities for treating patients with oligodontia or anodontia with fixed prostheses. A problem in treating such patients is the need to place implants in growing maxillae or mandibles, as many of these patients are children or adolescents. When implant treatment is postponed until the patient is full grown, dysfunctions become manifest, which necessitates extensive surgical measures to achieve a fixed prosthetic restoration. This report illustrates the problems associated with different concepts for the treatment of multiple aplasia with implants. The results are based on the findings of 22 patients with oligodontia who underwent surgical treatment and were followed over a period of 5 years. Two controversially treated cases are presented.

5/153. Rieger's syndrome: (oligodontia and primary mesodermal dysgenesis of the iris) clinical features and report of an isolated case.

    An 11-year-old female manifested bilateral prominent Schwalbe's line, iridal adhesions, displaced and irregular pupils. She had no evidence of juvenile glaucoma. The major nonocular finding in this patient was the congenital absence of her primary and permanent maxillary central and lateral incisors. Although missing or malformed teeth may occur in other conditions such as Down's syndrome, focal dermal hypoplasia syndrome, anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia, chondroectodermal dysplasia, and incontinentia pigmenti, the clinician should include Rieger's syndrome in his differential diagnosis in patients with oligodontia in combination with malformation of the anterior chamber of the eye. Rieger's syndrome is a rare condition characterized by ocular and dental abnormalities, namely mesoectodermal dysgenesis of the iris and cornea of the eyes and hypodontia of the dentition. This report presents a sporadic case of Rieger's syndrome in an 11-year-old female and discusses the pertinent clinical features of this condition.

6/153. Dysosteosclerosis: a case with unique dental findings and SEM evaluation of a hypoplastic tooth.

    A ten-year-old boy, who had the typical dental findings of dysosteosclerosis such as yellowish, hypoplastic teeth, retarded eruption, which upon eruption, decayed rapidly, is presented. To date this is the first known case reported with a congenital absence of the first permanent molars. Furthermore, SEM evaluation of the enamel and dentin was performed on a tooth from a patient with dysosteosclerosis for the first time. These studies showed weak ultrastructural compositions due to irregular calcification.

7/153. Second premolar serial extraction.

    serial extraction of mandibular second premolars should be considered if they are impacted or in cases with moderate arch length deficiency combined with an absence of dentofacial protrusion. The favorable dental changes associated with this approach greatly minimize future orthodontic treatment complexity and time.

8/153. Macrodontia in association with a contrasting character microdontia.

    The dental, genetic, radiological and dermatoglyphic findings of a 19-year-old girl showing macrodontia of maxillary permanent central incisors in association with a contrasting character, microdontia of maxillary permanent lateral and mandibular primary central incisors and bilateral absence of maxillary first premolars and missing of the right mandibular second premolar and peg-shaped mandibular primary lateral incisors and canines were presented.

9/153. Restoration of congenitally missing lateral incisors: a case report.

    parents and dentists are forced to make a decision early in a young patient's life when it is learned that the lateral incisors are missing. For many years the treatment has been to either move the cuspids into the lateral incisor sites or retain the teeth in their natural environment and restore the defect with a bonded or fixed bridge. With the advent of new designs in dental implants and their abutments, it is possible to consider replacing missing single teeth with implant-borne prostheses. Often-times, because of the limited residual bone and proximity of adjacent roots, placing conventional cylinder or screw-type implants is difficult. This article demonstrates the advantages of using a tapered-step implant, immediate one-stage surgery, and temporization in replacing congenitally missing laterals.

10/153. incontinentia pigmenti: seven cases with dental manifestations.

    incontinentia pigmenti (Bloch-Sulzberger syndrome) is an uncommon genodermatosis that usually affects female infants. The condition is characterized by four cutaneous stages and is frequently associated with dental, ocular, central nervous system and structural anomalies. A large case series of seven patients, all female, who presented to the Department of Paediatric dentistry at the Eastman Dental Hospital over the last 16 years is reported. The dental features of these cases were typical and included missing teeth, microdontia and delayed eruption. In two of the seven cases, both maxillary canines were palatally impacted.
