The unmistakable smile of Gaten Matarazzo Between them there is Gaten Matarazzo (of Italian origins, Monte di Procida) who plays Dustin, a boy who suffers from a genetic anomaly that takes the name of cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD), a condition that, among other things, includes a lack of development of the teeth, or on the contrary, the development of a greater number of teeth. And, in fact, Gaten in the scenes seems to have no teeth but this is not a trick of the scene: he is really so and sometimes he was forced to wear a false teeth. Also the character played by Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) has this disease in the series and, in fact, there are some episodes in which ‘educates’ the other fellow on this disease, explaining to him what it is.
what is dysplasia, cleidocranial dysplasia, which has affected Gaten Matarazzo, is a congenital disorder of type, hereditary, due to a genetic mutation. The appearance of those who suffer from this problem, is not homogeneous. Some, for example, do not fall off the teeth from the milk – that remain on the gums until they are adults, giving almost the idea that they are absent. Other people, instead, develop more teeth, or rather not developed at all. Other times it is missing the collar bones or who have an abnormal development. It is usually something that can be solved with dental procedures and prosthetic, also thanks to the possibility of early diagnosis, since the symptoms of cleidocranial dysplasia can also be visible, often, to the naked eye. Just recently, the young actor has had to undergo for the fourth time to surgery
The survey on Google Trends, Now the ‘science’ takes care of the series thanks to a survey conducted by researchers at Oklahoma State University. Scholars have used data from Google Trends and the searches related to cleidocranial dysplasia in a span of five years to assess the public interest and awareness of the disorder after the airing of each of the three seasons of the show. The researchers report that for every season of the show has been associated with an increase in the interest of research weekly for the CCD above what you would expect.
If the fiction becomes put social data have shown that web traffic to the pages with information related to the disease has reached 10,000 views in the week after the third season, which was presented last summer. In particular, there has been an increase in the research of these topics by 11% after the first season, 13% after the second and 94% at the end of the third season.
although the researchers call for the tv producers to be cautious in to represent people affected by rare diseases, in the same way recognize that these representations may contribute to increase the awareness about these diseases. What that door is also a greater awareness on the part of the institutions with the possibility to improve the research funding, access to early diagnosis and treatment but also reduce the feeling of isolation or discrimination of those who suffer from a rare disease, coma to the Ccd.
