Aim: To investigate the prevalence of twelve dental traits in the primary dentition of southern Chinese and compare to these figures with those from different ethnic groups. [...] Key Method Results: Of the twelve dental traits studied, the prevalence figures of seventh accessory cusp (89.0%), distal trigonid crest (33.5%) and metaconid ridge (84.0%) in the southern Chinese children were higher than reported for other ethnic groups.Expand
Morphological variations and prevalence of aberrant traits of primary molars
TLDR
The study describes, for the first time, the existence of aberrant dental traits in primary molars in a population, adding anthropological significance of primary dentition in various other populations. Expand
Frequency and Distribution of Dental Anomalies in Iran: A Radiographic Survey
TLDR
Comparison of the results with those of other studies showed that the frequency of developmental and acquired dental anomalies were different in countries and communities around the world. Expand
Expression of Carabelli trait in children from Southern India - A cross sectional study
TLDR
Though there was a high frequency of intermediate expressions of this trait, occurrence of a definite cusp of Carabelli on the primary maxillary second molar and permanent maxillary first molar was relatively infrequent. Expand
Dental development in children with supernumerary teeth in the anterior region of maxilla
TLDR
No significant difference was observed in the dental development of children with and without supernumerary teeth, as measured by chronological age and dental age. Expand
Dental Anomalies in Chinese Children with Cleft Lip and Palate
TLDR
This group of Chinese CLP children demonstrated a higher prevalence of dental anomalies than the non-CLP children, and were found to have one to three types of anomalies, than the other children. Expand
Prevalence of developmental anomalies of teeth in a group of North Karnataka population, India
TLDR
If the dental anomalies are detected earlier, the consequences of early pulp involvement in dens-in-dente, malocclusion can be intervened and treated accordingly and this study provides useful data regarding the prevalence of the most and the least common anomalies in North Karnataka region of India.

TLDR
The prevalence of peg-shaped maxillary permanent lateral incisors varies by race, population type, and sex, and the prevalence rates were higher among Mongoloid people, orthodontic patients, and women. Expand
Diagnostic tools used to predict the prevalence of supernumerary teeth: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
Clinical examination plus some types of radiograph(s) are essential for determining the prevalence of supernumerary teeth; nevertheless, it is still underestimated, and several disparities in the prevalence reports make the available data on supern numerary teeth questionable. Expand
Reliability of panoramic radiographs for identifying supernumerary teeth in children.
TLDR
Panoramic radiographs are unreliable for identifying supernumerary teeth, and higher level of dental training is essential for identifying ST. Expand
Prevalence of Shovel-Shaped in Patients of the Faculty of Dentistry of the University of Costa Rica. A Pilot Study
TLDR
The objective of this research was to determine the prevalence of shovel shaped teeth in a group of patients between 4 and 14 years old and found that the prevalence was of 32% of the population. Expand

Overall, categorical data analysis returned more positive moderate to high correlations than tetrachoric correlation analysis, and shared scale tests resulted in more correlations than did tests of data in the original scoring systems. Expand
Concomitant developmental dental anomalies in Chinese children with dens evaginatus.
TLDR
Supernumerary premolars appeared to be more prevalent in Chinese children with dens evaginatus than in the general population, and there may be an association of supernumeraries premolars with dens Evaginatus in this study population. Expand

TLDR
The frequency of primary dentition anomalies as a group was greater than that reported in other populations; the findings of this study provide a clear vision of the distribution of this oral condition and may well contribute to early detection and treatment planning. Expand

TLDR
Results are reported of a survey of the approaches of managing dens evaginatus used by general dental practitioners working in Hong Kong and over twice as many mandibular premolars were affected compared to those in the maxilla. Expand
