UNCERTAINTY: What are the best ways to prevent dental problems in people with rare metabolic bone disorders? (JLA PSP Priority 10)
Overall ranking Joint 10th
JLA question ID 0076/10
Explanatory note Not available for this PSP

A prospective study reported that dental abnormalities were common in XLH, unrelated to delayed medical treatment. The authors recommended regular oral examination (Souza MA et al, Clinics (Sao Paulo) 2010, 65: 1023-1026). Small case series suggest that duration of tretment with activated vitamin D supplements may be associated with a beneficial effect on dental health (Chaussain-Miller C et al, J Pediatr 2003; 142: 324-331, Connor J et al, J Clin Endocrinol Metab 2015; 100: 3625-3632).
