Schuller, A.A. Weerheijm, K.L. Veerkamp, J.S.J. TNO Kwaliteit van Leven Publication year 2008 Abstract The aim of this cross-sectional observational study was to report on the prevalence of hypomineralizations in second primary molars in 5-year-old Dutch children. In the study 386 (45% girls) 5-year-old Dutch children, all insured by a Health Insurance Fund, participated. Scoring criteria for molar incisor hypomineralization molars were adapted to score second primary molars. The prevalence of hypomineralized second primary molars (HSPM) was 4.9% at child level and 3.6% at tooth level. Most HSPMs (87%) showed demarcated opacities, followed by posteruptive enamel loss (40%). Copyright © 2008 S. Karger AG.
