Medicine and Social Media – Ethical Challenges of the 21st Century

With the huge growth of social networks, their use is increasing in hospitals and clinics and by physicians. However, health professionals are not always aware of the risks inheren to the use of these tools. The aim of this study is to analyse the problems associated with the use of social media in doctor-patient communication, as well as some rules that may help overcoming the potential risks of this situation.

Comparative Study of the Prevalence of Occlusal Anomalies in Down Syndrome Children and Their Siblings

The aim of this study was to characterize occlusal anomalies in a Portuguese population with Down Syndrome (DS) and to compare its distribution with that of their siblings.

Craniofacial Features and Specific Oral Characteristics of Down Syndrome Children

Individuals with Down syndrome are clinically characterized by generalized hypotonia, neurological, cardiac and respiratory problems and changes in their stomatognathic system. Almost all these patients have an occlusal disharmony, including anterior open bite, anterior and posterior crossbite, anterior proclination and underdevelopment of the maxilla and the midface. Dental anomalies such as hypodontia, peg-shaped teeth and enamel hypocalcification are also found.

Treatment of White Spot Lesions by Resin Infiltration

The resin infiltration procedure is a promising minimally invasive dentistry technique. Resin infiltration produces a positive effect on aesthetics, preserves tooth structure, delays or even eliminates the need for a restorative treatment and eliminates the risk of post-operative sensitivity and pulp inflammation. Although it has recently been developed, the results are very satisfactory. However, investigation is still needed (particularly with longer follow-ups and larger samples) as well as the development of specific and simplified protocols.
