Dental Fluorosis


Presentation

  • Comparisons between the present study and other studies should be careful. One should remember that the conditions of examination of the present study were exceptional.[scielo.br]
  • For current drinking water interval data the odds ratio for the presentation of aesthetically significant fluorosis was 4.02 (p All of the remaining explanatory variables demonstrated no significant association with the presentation of fluorosis.[bmcoralhealth.biomedcentral.com]
  • When viewed under LM, teeth with questionable and very mild fluorosis did not present significant alterations histologically.[ijdr.in]
  • However, the opposing tooth in dental fluorosis requiring restoration likely presents mild dental fluorosis.[nanoscalereslett.springeropen.com]
  • "severe", and eliminate each score until he or she arrives at the condition present. If there is any doubt, the lower score should be given.[mah.se]

Neglect
  • All observers, except the dentists, felt that the more severe fluorosis indicated neglect on the part of the child. (13) Egyptian researchers observed that friends and relatives ridicule the patient by inferring that these stains are associated with smoking[nofluoride.com]

Treatment

  • Treatment: The damage that dental fluorosis causes to the teeth enamel is permanent and not reversible. Dental fluorosis treatment is targeting in hiding the discoloration of the teeth. Treatment options depend on the severity of dental fluorosis.[medigoo.com]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis Teeth affected by fluorosis are not diseased. Fluorosis will not result in cavities or other dental problems.[colgate.com]
  • Thus, prognosis of resin composite appears not to be good. However, the introduction of the modern bonding systems and fiber-reinforced resin composites may result in resin composite veneers with better prognosis.[saudijos.org]

Etiology

  • The etiology is attributed to the early exposure to high concentrations of fluoride ingested from drinking water. Various treatment options addressing the patient's presenting complaint were discussed with the patient and her husband.[jresdent.org]
  • Descriptive indices There are a few notable among the descriptive indices that have been suggested for measuring dental fluorosis. [32], [33], [34] According to these descriptive indices, no diagnosis of enamel defect should be made on the basis of presumed etiology[saudijos.org]
