Struktur und Zusammensetzung des Schmelzes bei Amelogenesis imperfecta

Abstract

Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) represents a broad spectrum of genetic diseases affecting the enamel formation. Suspected changes in the composition and structure of the enamel can hamper the establishment of an adequate adhesive bonding to the substrate, i.e. by influencing the conditioning. It was the purpose of this article to dwell on this problematic issue and to present a case with a hypomaturation type of AI. Using dual etch biopsies, the composition and structure of the affected enamel was studied and findings compared to healthy control teeth, which were extracted for orthodontic reasons. No differences in the calcium and phosphor content of the biopsies were noted. The Ca/P ratio was comparable as well. A sufficient etching pattern after phosphoric acid application was found. Clinical considerations and treatment concepts were discussed, which may also play a significant role when treating cases with other manifestations of enamel or dentin affections.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
