  • dentin
  • The first group including 3 dogs 11 months old in which we fractured all third incisors, canines, fourth premolars and third upper molars (84 teeth together), showed by the F-test, significantly different results in pulp vitality resulting in dentin production compared with second group. (vin.com)
  • Fractured teeth in the early stages of maturation, consisting of 40-50% hard tissue, have much higher ability to continue dentin deposition despite chronic pulp inflammation. (vin.com)
  • By comparison, teeth in the second year of life consist of more then 60% hard tissue, have a lower ability to survive, and significantly decreased dentin production. (vin.com)
  • pulps
  • In the second group, 9 tooth pulps (21,4%) survived for 10 months but the size of pulp cavity did not decreased as significantly as in the first group. (vin.com)
  • save the tooth
  • A dentist may conduct other alternative solutions to save the tooth when it is possible, but there are instances when there's nothing left to be done but to extract the tooth. (karengordondmd.com)
  • cracks
  • Newer 3D imaging modalities, such as limited field-of-view CBCT imaging, have been proposed as an aid to detect root cracks and fractures. (drbicuspid.com)
  • MRI may offer an alternative modality to detect these cracks and fractures in teeth without ionizing radiation. (drbicuspid.com)
  • The researchers wanted to see if they could determine the sensitivity and specificity of MRI and the current gold standard of CBCT imaging for detecting root cracks and fractures, compared with known crack and fracture status. (drbicuspid.com)
  • MRI showed comparable measures of sensitivity and specificity for the detection of cracks/fractures in teeth in relation to limited field-of-view CBCT," the researchers wrote. (drbicuspid.com)
  • However, "given the early stage of technology development, there may be a use for MRI in detecting cracks/fractures in teeth," the researchers added. (drbicuspid.com)
  • Examination of museum specimens reveals the presence of similar fractures in a wide range of vertebrates, suggesting that cracks extended during ingestion or mastication. (nih.gov)
