Prevalence of Taurodontism in Premolars among Patients at a Tertiary Care Institution in Trinidad

Issue: 
Pages: 
368–71
Synopsis: 
Prevalence of taurodontism in 1090 Trinidadian patients was evaluated radiographically. Of the 5324 premolars examined, 4.79% were taurodonts. Males had a higher prevalence than females. Prevalence in the mandibular premolars was higher than those in the maxillary premolars.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: A study was undertaken to assess the prevalence of taurodontism in premolars in a group of adult dental patients in Trinidad and Tobago since there is no such data available for the region.

Methods: Periapical and orthopantomograms of 1090 randomly selected patients were examined for the presence of an apically displaced pulp chamber without the usual constriction at the cementoenamel junction.

Issue: 
Pages: 
440–3

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine urinary fluoride levels in school children in a non-fluoridated area in Trinidad and Tobago.

Method: Morning urine samples were requested from 750 children aged 5 to 14 years, attending a primary school in the area of St Joseph, north west Trinidad. Urine was collected at home and brought to school in labelled plastic bottles. Urinary fluoride concentration (ppm) was measured using an ionspecific electrode.

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.162
Synopsis: 
The vision for oral and maxillofacial pathology in Jamaica, if planned properly, will lead to a bright future for training oral and maxillofacial pathologists in Jamaica.
ABSTRACT
 
Oral and maxillofacial pathology is an important bridging specialty between dentistry and medicine. This branch of dentistry is gaining special interest as a result of increasing number of oral cancer and microbial diseases. The advancements of medicine and basic medical sciences may help in directing the research in dentistry and oral and maxillofacial pathology. This paper highlights the new area and scope for oral and maxillofacial pathology in Jamaica.
