1/4. incontinentia pigmenti (Bloch-Sulzberger syndrome): report of case.

    incontinentia pigmenti is an inherited disorder with predominantly ectodermal abnormalities. The dental effects, delayed eruption, hypodontia, and microdontia, are very similar to anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia. It is important that children with incontinentia pigmenti gain access to specialist dental care including pediatric dentistry, orthodontics, prosthodontics and oral surgery.

2/4. Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia: dental, clinical, genetic and dermatoglyphic findings of three cases.

    patients with hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (HED) are characterized by the clinical manifestations of hypodontia, hypohidrosis, hypotrichosis and a highly characteristic facial physiognomy. This disorder is inherited as an X-linked trait. This report presents three cases with HED in which the clinical evaluation (intraoral and radiological), genetic findings and SEM examination of hair. Boys 6 to 14 year old and a 11 year old girl were referred to the Marmara University, faculty of Dentistry, complaining of oligodontia in the maxillary and mandibular arches and delay in eruption of other teeth. Peg-shaped teeth have been observed. The dermatoglyphs of the patients were striking. SEM examination of hair demonstrated a distinctly abnormal longitudinal grooving along the entire length of each hair and a desquamation of the surface cuticles. The treatment was planned in a multidisciplinary odontological group involving pediatric dentistry, orthodontics, prosthodontics and oral surgery and maxillofacial radiology of future dental habilitation. A specially designed overdenture, a removable prosthesis and osseointegrated implants were constructed. Periodic recall visits were advised, to monitor the dentures and implants during periods of growth and development, and eruption of the permanent teeth.

3/4. Prosthetic rehabilitation of a child affected from anhydrotic ectodermal dysplasia: a case report.

    The aim of this clinical report is to describe the management of a young patient, affected by ectodermal dysplasia, during a nine-year period. Dental treatment can vary depending on the severity of the disease (tooth size, morphology, and amount of available alveolar bone). New technologies, such as adhesive dentistry, and new materials, such as composite resin, represent current options in the management of the dental rehabilitation of patients affected by ectodermal dysplasia. Removable partial dentures were used to replace congenitally missing teeth, and composite resin materials were used to restore conical-shaped maxillary teeth to achieve a favorable esthetic result. This option minimized the sacrifice of healthy dental tissue. Prosthodontic and restorative treatment was provided for the psychological and social comfort of the young patient.

4/4. Removable partial overdentures for special patients.

    Removable partial overdentures are an option that should be considered by every dentist who is involved with cosmetic dentistry or dentistry for the older adult. The rationale, indications, and technique have been described for providing an aesthetic, functional prosthesis that is also conservative in nature. The reversibility of the procedure allows the patient the opportunity to pursue other forms of treatment should the result not meet his or her expectations. For appropriately selected special patients, the results can be extremely gratifying for both the patient and dentist.
