[The structure of the facial skeleton in children and adolescents with multiple anodontia].Stomatologiia (Mosk). 1990 May-Jun; 69(3):72-5.S
Analysis of 1516 orthopantomograms of the jaws has revealed hypodontia in 256 (16.88%) cases, in 119 (46.48%) of these more than 10 permanent teeth were missing. A total of 182 lateral teleroentgenograms of the head were analyzed, recorded in 63 subjects with orthognathic occlusion, in 85 ones with abnormal occlusion due to hypodontia, and in 34 ones with hypodontia combined with anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia. Typical disorders of facial skeleton structure in hypodontia and anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia were defined with due consideration for the period of occlusion formation.
