Abstract:
The aim of this study was to monitor the oral health of children with chronic renal disease and skeletal development in children with renal disease. Thirty-six children (aged 3-13 years) were given a full clinical and radiological dental examination to evaluate skeletal development and tooth changes. After the first diagnosis and careful examination, enamel defects were clinically detected in a total of 11 children (30.5%). Of these, eight children clinically affected (22.2% of all those examined) exhibited localized hypoplasia of the primary canines, which was determined in only 3% of healthy control children. This increased prevalence is probably due to disordered calcium and phosphate metabolism. Chronological ages were recorded and hand-wrist radiographs were taken in our clinic. According to our results, skeletal development is slower than chronological development and this is statistically significant. Dental and medical care should be closely integrated for children with renal disease in order to avoid undesirable dental sequelae.
