The results of an epidemiological investigation on the prevalence of malocclusions in the school population of the Province of Trieste carried out on a sample of 2099 subjects aged 10 and 12 are reported. Subjects were classified according to Angle classes. Other malocclusion parameters such as overjet, overbite, median line deviation, crossbite and upper(More)
Specific dental enamel defects (DEDs) in permanent teeth are frequently observed in coeliac patients. We examined the permanent teeth in 6949 secondary school children living in Trieste (78% of 8724 children born between 1978 and 1982). Children with DEDs were tested for serum antigliadin antibodies (AGAs) and antiendomysium antibodies (AEAs), and those(More)
The ectodermal dysplasias (EDs) are a large and complex group of inherited disorders. In various combinations, they all share anomalies in ectodermal derived structures: hair, teeth, nails and sweat gland function. Clinical overlap is present among EDs. Few causative genes have been identified, to date. Altered gene expression is not limited to the ectoderm(More)
Twenty Down's syndrome dental patients between 9 and 20 years of age have been identified in order to evaluate anxiety and pain induced by various kinds of dental treatment such as some "moderately painful" dental out-patient procedures (10 subjects), general anaesthesia dental treatment (5 subjects) and painless out-patient visit or routine orthodontic(More)

The authors describe a simple mean to visualize the several profiles which is possible to perform in the patient who is undergoing rhinoplasty or profiloplasty procedure. Failure in giving a clear opportunity of choice of a profile may lead to misunderstanding between surgeon and patient.
BACKGROUND Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome (BWS, OMIM 130650) is a rare genetic disorder characterised by overgrowth, tumor predisposition and congenital malformations. Few systemic manifestations and oral features have been reported so far. CASE REPORT We report on a case of BWS, describing all features expanding the knowledge on oro-dento-facial phenotypes,(More)
Ear concha hypertrophy corrected by elliptical conchal excision often resulted in deformity due to lateral deviation of the anterior part of the concha. A modification of the method allows to avoid that deviation: the conchal ellipse is left connected to the conchal floor, is weakened by half thickness incisions parallel to the edge; the conchal floor thus(More)
