The aim of this study was threefold: first, to assess the oral health of Turkish, Moroccan, Surinamese, Dutch and "other" 5-yr-old children living in Amsterdam; second, to identify risk indicators for caries, in addition to ethnicity; and third, to identify potential risk factors related to differences in caries experience in these children....

A study was executed to investigate the relation between the use of fluoride tablets by children in the age period 1.5-6 yr on the one hand and the caries experience at the age of 6 and 15 yr and the prevalence of fluorosis at the age of 15 yr on the other hand. The year of birth of the child, the motivation of the mother to engage in preventive...

In 563 surviving very preterm (<32 weeks gestational age) and/or very low birthweight (<1500 g) infants the relationship between neonatal thyroxine concentration and psychomotor development at 2 years of age (corrected for preterm birth) was studied. A significant association was found between low neonatal thyroxine concentration and a negative...

This study investigates whether the oral health of 5- and 11-year-old children of immigrants from Turkey and Morocco is worse than that of Dutch peer groups in Amsterdam. The outcome variables considered were dmft/s. DMFT/S and the index-components, amount of plaque and number of tooth surfaces sealed (only 11-year olds). The explanatory...

To predict height at five years in a cohort of 565 very preterm and/or very low-birth-weight children, hypothesized growth determinants were subjected to discriminant analysis. Many neonatal parameters were not significantly associated with short stature at five years of age. A correct classification of stature (smaller/larger than the 10th...

This article reviews the literature on child dental caries in various ethnic groups in the Netherlands. Material from fifteen studies showed generally the dental health of five- to eleven-year-old children of parents born in Turkey or Morocco to be far worse than that of children of Dutch or Surinamese parents. The ethnic groups distinguished,...

A previous study has shown five-year-old children of parents originating from Turkey or Morocco to have twice as much dmfs as children of parents from The Netherlands, Surinam or various other countries. In the present study, other risk indicators and factors for the prevalence of caries amongst these children were studied by interviewing their...

The aim of this study was to assess differences in dental health between socioeconomic and ethnic groups in a cohort of 5-yr-old children born in 1982 and in a cohort of 11-yr-old children born in 1976. A further aim was to evaluate the putative role of dental behaviors as intervening factors between ethnicity and maternal education on the one...

The aim of this study was to assess differences in oral health and dental behaviour in a cohort of five-year-old children born in 1982 and a cohort of eleven-year-old children born in 1976, in different ethnic and socio-economic groups, in the period from 1987 to 1990. To this end a secondary analysis was performed on data collected in a study...

In order to evaluate the results of Regional Institutions (RI's) for Youth Dentistry, an epidemiological study was performed on caries experience and oral hygiene habits of 5-, 8- and 11-year-olds, getting dental treatment in these institutions. In the big cities participants of the RI's appeared to be mostly from the lower social levels of...

A previous study among Amsterdam 5-year-old children showed that on average, the older the child at the onset of toothbrushing and the less frequent the toothbrushing, the more life time caries experience it had. The aim of the present study was to assess correlates of these two caries risk factors, in four ethnic groups. A further aim was to...

In this article the importance of mineral suppletion for teeth and jawbone is explained in a step-wise manner. The steps discussed are the pre-eruptive phase of teeth and the growth, adult and ageing phase of the skeleton. Mineral suppletion should be seen as a measure to prevent dental caries (fluoride) and to ensure a maximal resistance...

The aim of the study was to assess the prevalence of food intolerance (FI) in Dutch 5- and 6-year-old children and its association with chronic ailments with a survey among parents by questionnaire. Based on parents' perception the prevalence of 'probable' FI was 3.8%. FI was associated with asthma, wheezing, eczema, hay fever, chronic rhinitis,...

A biomechanical failure of the collagen network is postulated in many hypotheses of the development of osteoarthritis with advancing age. Here we investigate the accumulation of non-enzymatic glycation (NEG) products in healthy human articular cartilage, its relation to tissue remodelling and its role in tissue stiffening. Pentosidine levels...
