Abstract

There is nothing quite like the searing intensity of dental pain to remind us of the value of healthy teeth. When our children are afflicted the effects can be devastating for families and clinicians. Sadly, many Australian children must bear this pain due to a widespread developmental condition called Molar Hypomineralisation (MH). The proposed translational research project seeks to reduce the pain associated with MH by providing new treatment approaches and ultimately prevention.
