Significance for science
Because of the subprojects diversity the influence of the anticipated research results is wide, for we not only to introduced into dentistry clinical genetics (and contribute to a more proper classification of amelogenesis imperfecta), but also worked on prevention by conducting research studies of orofacial functions in the congenital and acquired dentofacial malformations. Investigating harmful effects of environmental pollution could greatly contribute to environmental preservation studies. By publishing the results in scientific papers we improved therapeutic protocols for congenital and acquired facial anomalies and prosthetic treatments evaluated from a subjective view as well as from the view of dental material improvement. The understanding of the various factors that affect the amelogenesiso of fetal mice significantly contribute to the understanding of amelogenesis in humans. It also gives us different phenotypes and genotypes of hereditary disease of enamel, which we describe in amelogenesis imperfecta diseases and diseases due to environmental factors, expanding horizons of knowledge about tooth enamel construction. In patients needing surgical treatment we performed an analysis of reconstruction with the 3D assisted models. The device was used in the treatment of cancer patients, as well as a few after severe facial injuries, congenital and developmental anomalies of the face. In this period, the research findings confirm previous survey, that the earlier creation of 3D models based on CT scans, help in establishing the correct diagnosis and planning operations. In particular it significantly reduces disability, improves function and appearance.
Significance for the country
Prevention means cutting down treatment expenses because of diminished severity of dental and skeletal anomalies, and it could lead to important economic effects by introducing newer, cheaper, non invasive diagnostic methods, such as ultrasound. The purpose of our programme was above all better quality of treatment and striving for excellence. Studies were extended to the area of ??diseases of dental pulp of deciduous teeth, primarily in order to establish clear guidelines for clinical practice for Slovenian dentists in this area. The research has medical significance and is important because surgical patients get a benefit. Since most of treated patients are Slovenian, it is important for the development of the Slovenian health system, but the research by it self is not limited to local and national borders. In most surgical centers worldwide are dealing with this issue, we are colaborating with clinics in Zagreb and Basel.
