Reversibility of teeth calcification on pre and post natal protein deficiency

Author :

      Abstract :

      Growth and development factors play an important role in orthodontics. Nutritional status during pregnancy and infant period will influence the growth and development of teeth. Protein diet is an important factor, which will determine optimal calcification during teeth growth and development stages. Teeth calcification, in orthodontics, can be used to estimate the teeth maturity for diagnosing and treatment planning. The purpose of this study was to recognize one’s ability to surpass calcium deficiency because of pre and post natal protein deficiency. There were three groups of samples of Rattus norvegicus rats. The first group was a control group, the second was an infant group with pre and post natal protein deficiency, and the third group was the young rat weaning age with pre and post natal protein deficiency supplemented with enough protein in the diet. Teeth calcification stages were analyzed histological by evaluating pre dentin width on right molar mandibular teeth. Data was analyzed by One-way ANOVA continued by t test. The result proved that there was a significant predentin width difference between group I, III and I, II (p < 0.01), but not significant between group II and III (p > 0.05). It concluded that teeth calcification damage because of pre and post natal protein deficiency is an irreversible process. Protein supplements after teeth calcification has been impeded can’t restore the condition.
