Abstract

Vitamin D deficiency causes changes in bone tissue including hard dental tissue. Deficiency of vitamin D, which is necessary for correct bone and hard dental tissues mineralization, may be the result of insufficient amount of dietary vitamin D, vitamin D absorption disorder or resistance to active form of vitamin D. A female patient aged 12 years and 1.5 months attended the Chair and Department of Paedodontics Medical University of Lublin. Intraoral examination showed the occurrence of white and dark brown spots, pits and fissures of the enamel surface as well as changes in teeth shape. The planned treatment is the application of varnishes including fluoride compounds and, after the completion of developmental period, prosthetic treatment.
