Short descriptive review

  • What are the main claims of the paper and how important are they?

    Point out the presence and characteristics of this pathology in the particular population of orthodontic patients

  • Are these claims novel? If not, please specify papers that weaken the claims to the originality of this one.

    The claims are not novel; they could be interesting for the clinical  orthodontist

  • Are the claims properly placed in the context of the previous literature?

    The review is not sistematic so the conclusion could be only partially based

  • Do the results support the claims? If not, what other evidence is required?

    A sistematic review could be increase the values of the claims.

  • If a protocol is provided, for example for a randomized controlled trial, are there any important deviations from it? If so, have the authors explained adequately why the deviations occurred?

    This is not a sperimental paper so there isn't an experimental protocol, but there isn't an explanation of the litterature selection

  • Is the methodology valid? Does the paper offer enough details of its methodology that its experiments or its analyses could be reproduced?

    Already explained

  • Would any other experiments or additional information improve the paper? How much better would the paper be if this extra work was done, and how difficult would such work be to do, or to provide?

    The explanation of the litterature selection and the of the searched data base would increase the value of the paper. A certain quantity of work is necessary.

  • Is this paper outstanding in its discipline? (For example, would you like to see this work presented in a seminar at your hospital or university? Do you feel these results need to be incorporated in your next general lecture on the subject?) If yes, what makes it outstanding? If not, why not?

    This paper is not outstanding in its discipline. it could be useful for a reading suggestion for the students.
