Para el grupo de estudio se aplicaron los siguientes criterios de inclusion: ninos/as diagnosticados con maltrato infantil, con edades de 6 a 16anos, y los siguientes criterios de exclusion: ninos/as que no deseen participar en el estudio, ninos/as con patologias de sistema nervioso, ninos/as con alergias, anodoncia secundaria a un sindrome y ninos con alteraciones del desarrollo dental como amelogenesis imperfecta, dentinogenesis imperfecta y odontodisplasia regional.
It was categorized to be distinct clinical entity from dentinogenesis imperfect by Finn (1938).
Dentinogenesis imperfect associated with osteogenesis imperfect; Report of 2 cases.
Dentinogenesis imperfecta is a hereditary abnormality of dentin in the absence of systemic disease.
It needs to be pointed out that the OI diagnosis is often associated with other maladies like: deformations of the skelleton (at arm, calves or spine level), little height, high laxity at joints level with possible sprains, contusions, etc., platfus, eyesight defficiencies, reduction or even loss of hearing, dental malformations (imperfect dentinogenesis), heart valves insufficiency, fatigue, excessive sweating.
