Front Genet . 2022 Jun 9;13:875490. doi: 10.3389/fgene.2022.875490. eCollection 2022. Background: Singleton-Merten syndrome type 1 (SGMRT1) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder caused by IFIH1 variations with blood vessel calcifications, teeth anomalies, and bone defects. Aim: We aimed to summarize the oral findings in SGMRT1 through a systematic review of the literature and to describe the phenotype of a 10-year-old patient with SGMRT1 diagnosis. Results: A total of 20 patients were described in the literature, in nine articles. Eight IFIH1 mutations were described in 11 families. Delayed eruption, short roots, and premature loss of permanent teeth were the most described features (100%). Impacted teeth (89%) and carious lesions (67%) were also described. Our patient, a 10-year-old male with Singleton-Merten syndrome, presented numerous carious lesions, severe teeth malposition, especially in the anterior arch, and an oral hygiene deficiency with a 100% plaque index. The panoramic X-ray did not show any dental agenesis but revealed very short roots and a decrease in the jaw alveolar bone height. The whole-genome sequencing analysis revealed a heterozygous de novo variant in IFIH1 (NM_022168.4) c.2465G > A (p.Arg822Gln). Conclusion: Confused descriptions of oral features occurred in the literature between congenital findings and "acquired" pathology, especially carious lesions. The dental phenotype of these patients encompasses eruption anomalies (delayed eruption and impacted teeth) and lack of root edification, leading to premature loss of permanent teeth, and it may contribute to the diagnosis. An early diagnosis is essential to prevent teeth loss and to improve the quality of life of these patients. (07/2022) (link)

A comparison of methods of aesthetic assessment in root coverage procedures.J Clin Periodontol. 2009 ;36(1) : 80-87. Aim: To evaluate the reliability of professional qualitative scoring methods used in evaluating aesthetic results after root coverage therapy and to evaluate the relationship between subjective and objective measurements. Material and methods: A review panel of seven professional and non-professional, trained and untrained observers used photographic records to assess the overall cosmetic results of 162 root coverage surgical procedures in 133 patients (mean follow-up 17.51+/-17.37 months). Two different methods were used. In the before-after panel scoring system, observers evaluated the difference between preoperative and postoperative views, whereas in the random panel scoring system, observers rated each photograph independently. Results: For both methods, intrarater agreement ranged from substantial to almost perfect for the periodontists. The best interrater agreement was found for trained periodontists using the five-point ordinal scale of the before-after panel scoring system (kappa=0.68). Neither root coverage percentage nor gingival augmentation was correlated to cosmetic assessment. Conclusions: The before-after scoring system is an acceptable and reliable method for professional cosmetic assessment of root coverage therapy. The overall cosmetic evaluation does not appear to be related to the percentage of root coverage. (01/2009) (link)
