X trisomy in an infertile bitch: cytogenetic, anatomic, and histologic studies. (1/197)

Three copies of the X chromosome were identified in a 5-year-old mixed breed infertile bitch. One year after the cytogenetic examination, the bitch died due to gastritis hemorrhagica, an inflammation of the mucus coat of the stomach. Dental studies showed congenital lack of some premolar and molar teeth. Ovaries were of normal shape and size. Also, histologic sections of the ovaries revealed their normal structure, with two corpora lutea and primary follicles. Phenotypic effects of X trisomy are discussed.  (+info)

Persistence of deciduous molars in subjects with agenesis of the second premolars. (2/197)

The purpose of the present study was to investigate persistent primary second molars in a group of young people in their late twenties with agenesis of one or two second premolars. In 1982-83 it was decided, in connection with the orthodontic evaluation of 25 patients, to allow 35 primary molars (one or two in each patient) to remain in situ. All patients had mixed dentitions and agenesis of one or two premolars. The primary teeth were generally in good condition, although root resorption and infra-occlusion (compensated by occlusal composite onlays) occurred. In 1997, 18 of the 25 patients with a total of 26 retained primary molars were reexamined, comprising a clinical examination for exfoliation, extraction, loosening, and ankylosis, and a radiographic examination for root resorption, tooth morphology (crown and root), and alveolar bone contour. The examination showed that the degree of root resorption was unaltered in 20 of the 26 primary molars. In the permanent dentitions, where these primary molars persisted, there were no morphological deviations. Three of the six remaining primary molars had been extracted and three showed extensive resorption. In three of the 26 primary molars the infra-occlusion had worsened. The present study shows that persistence of primary second molars in subjects with agenesis of one or two premolars, and normal morphology of the permanent dentition can be an acceptable, semi-permanent solution for the patient. Whether this could also be an acceptable long-term solution will be shown by follow-up studies.  (+info)

The long-term survival of lower second primary molars in subjects with agenesis of the premolars. (3/197)

This study investigated 41 subjects, 13 male and 28 female, with agenesis of one or both lower second premolars, and with retained lower second primary molars. Intra-oral radiographs of 59 primary teeth were examined to judge the resorption of the mesial and distal roots, and were measured to record infra-occlusion of the primary teeth and tipping of the adjacent permanent teeth. The study commenced at 11-12 years of age. The mean age at the last measurement was 20 years 6 months (SD 3.62, range 13.6-31.8 years). During the observation period, only two of the 59 primary teeth were exfoliated. Five were extracted, two of which were replaced by upper third molar transplants. Beyond the age of 20 years no teeth were lost. Root resorption varied widely between individuals, but was slow. There was no typical pattern for development of infra-occlusion. Mean infra-occlusion was 0.47 mm (SD 1.13) at 11-12 years, increasing by less than 1.0 to 1.43 mm (SD 1.13) at age 17-18 years. At age 19-20 years, 55 per cent of teeth showed infra-occlusion between 0.5 and 4.5 mm, but 45 per cent showed no infra-occlusion. The space between the first molar and first premolar was a mean of 10.35 mm (SD 0.76) at age 10-12 years compared with the mean width of the second primary molar of 10.53 mm (SD 0.51). The space reduced by less than 0.5 mm to 9.95 mm (SD 1.50) at age 17-18 years. If primary molars are present at 20 years of age they appear to have a good prognosis for long-term survival.  (+info)

An analysis of the skeletal relationships in a group of young people with hypodontia. (4/197)

The objective of this investigation was to examine the dentofacial features of a group of patients with hypodontia, in particular assessing whether cephalometric analysis confirmed the clinical assumption of a reduced lower face height, and to determine the relationship of these facial features with different numbers of missing teeth. It took the form of a cephalometric study, undertaken in a dedicated Dental Hospital clinic for patients with hypodontia. The study group comprised 59 patients seen on the Hypodontia Clinic: 32 females, 27 males, mean age 13.1+/-3.1 years (range 6-23 years). The average number of missing teeth was 7 (SD 5), ranging from 1 to 21. The mean SNA, SNB, and MMA angles were within normal limits, but there was a statistically significant reduction in the MMA when more than one tooth type was missing (P = 0.007) and the ANB angle decreased as the number of missing tooth types increased (P = 0.034). The mean values for the whole sample were within the normal range and did not demonstrate any feature specific to the group, but patients with more severe hypodontia showed tendencies to a Class III skeletal relationship and a reduced maxillary-mandibular planes angle.  (+info)

Congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisors and orthodontic treatment considerations for the single-tooth implant. (5/197)

Implant restorations have become a primary treatment option for the replacement of congenitally missing lateral incisors. The central incisor and canine often erupt in less than optimal positions adjacent to the edentulous lateral incisor space, and therefore preprosthetic orthodontic treatment is frequently required. Derotation of the central incisor and canine, space closure and correction of root proximities may be required to create appropriate space in which to place the implant and achieve an esthetic restoration. This paper discusses aspects of preprosthetic orthodontic diagnosis and treatment that need to be considered with implant restorations.  (+info)

Survey of dental treatments for pediatric patients referred to the pediatric dental clinic of a dental school hospital. (6/197)

This survey was conducted to clarify which dental treatments in children are regarded as difficult by general dentistry practitioners. The subjects were 615 children who first visited Tokyo Dental College Chiba Hospital from January 1995 to August 1999 with reference letters. There were 615 children in the study; 571 (92.8%) came from Chiba City where our hospital is located and the 11 regions surrounding Chiba City. The prime reasons for referral in the order of frequency were treatments of dental caries, malalignment/malocclusion, traumatized teeth, supernumerary teeth, retarded eruption/impacted teeth, abnormal direction of erupted teeth, congenitally missing teeth, prolonged retention of deciduous teeth, and abnormal frenulum. Patients with dental caries or traumatized teeth in the deciduous dentition period and those with malalignment/malocclusion, supernumerary teeth, or retarded eruption/impacted teeth in the mixed dentition period were often referred to medical organizations specializing in pediatric dentistry because of the difficulties in controlling the patients' behavior and in providing adequate treatment. The information about pediatric dental treatments considered difficult by general dentists revealed by this survey appears to be useful and needs to be incorporated in the programs for clinical training of undergraduate students and education of postgraduate students.  (+info)

The congenitally missing upper lateral incisor. A retrospective study of orthodontic space closure versus restorative treatment. (7/197)

Orthodontic treatment for patients with uni- or bilateral congenitally missing lateral incisors is a challenge to effective treatment planning. The two major alternatives, orthodontic space closure or space opening for prosthetic replacements, can both compromise aesthetics, periodontal health, and function. The aim of this retrospective study was to examine treated patients who had congenitally missing lateral incisors and to compare their opinion of the aesthetic result with the dentists' opinions of occlusal function and periodontal health. In this sample, 50 patients were identified. Thirty had been treated with orthodontic space closure, and 20 by space opening and a prosthesis (porcelain bonded to gold and resin bonded bridges). The patient's opinion of the aesthetic result was evaluated using the Eastman Esthetic Index questionnaire and during a structured interview. The functional status, dental contact patterns, periodontal condition, and quality of the prosthetic replacement was evaluated. In general, subjects treated with orthodontic space closure were more satisfied with the appearance of their teeth than those who had a prosthesis. No significant differences in the prevalence of signs and symptoms of temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD) were found. However, patients with prosthetic replacements had impaired periodontal health with accumulation of plaque and gingivitis. The conclusion of this study is that orthodontic space closure produces results that are well accepted by patients, does not impair temporomandibular joint (TMJ) function, and encourages periodontal health in comparison with prosthetic replacements.  (+info)

Face, palate, and craniofacial morphology in patients with a solitary median maxillary central incisor. (8/197)

The occurrence of a solitary median maxillary central incisor (SMMCI) is a very rare condition and might be a sign of a mild degree of holoprosencephaly. In this investigation, material from 10 patients, nine girls and one boy with a SMMCI (8-17 years of age) registered in orthodontic clinics was examined. The purpose was to evaluate the clinical characteristics and craniofacial morphology in this group of patients. Oral photographs, study casts, profile radiographs, and orthopantomograms were analysed. The study showed that this group of SMMCI patients were characterized by an indistinct philtrum, an arch-shaped upper lip, absence of the fraenulum of the upper lip, a complete or incomplete mid-palatal ridge, a SMMCI, and nasal obstruction or septum deviation. The craniofacial morphology of the nine girls, compared with normal standards for girls showed a short anterior cranial base, a short, retrognathic and posteriorly inclined maxilla, and a retrognathic and posteriorly inclined mandible. Furthermore, the sella turcica had a deviant morphology in five of the 10 subjects. The results indicate that the presence of a SMMCI should not be considered as a simple dental anomaly, since it may be associated with other clinical characteristics and more complex craniofacial malformations. It is therefore suggested that the SMMCI condition in future studies is classified according to clinical symptoms and craniofacial morphology.  (+info)

Partial anodontia. Congenitally missing teeth are more common among individuals with Down syndrome (50%) when compared to the general population (2%), though the distribution of missing teeth is similar in both populations.22 Genetic modes of transmission are responsible for this condition. A relationship between partial anodontia and other ectodermal defects (mucous membrane, hair, skin) has been suggested.19 Further research indicated that this "Trisomic insult" will greatly increase the susceptibility of the host to partial anodontia, while not affecting specific tooth buds.22 The most frequently missing teeth in descending order are third molars, second bicuspids, lateral incisors, and mandibular incisors. The only teeth not missing are first molars.22 Sometimes the primary tooth will not be resorbed or will be resorbed so slowly that it can be retained well into adulthood.24 Treatment decisions should be made after reviewing the radiographs with concern for space maintenance.

Oligodontia is defined as the congenital absence of six or more permanent teeth, excluding the third molars. Oligodontia may contribute to masticatory dysfunction, speech alteration, aesthetic problems and malocclusion. Numerous gene mutations have been association with oligodontia. In the present study, we identified a de novo AXIN2 missense mutation (c.314T|G) in a Chinese individual with non-syndromic oligodontia. This mutation results in the substitution of Val at residue 105 for Gly (p.Val105Gly); residue 105 is located in the highly conserved regulator of G protein signaling (RGS) domain of the AXIN2 protein. This is the first report indicating that a mutation in the RGS domain of AXIN2 is responsible for non-syndromic oligodontia. Our study supports the relationship between AXIN2 mutation and non-syndromic oligodontia and extends the mutation spectrum of the AXIN2 gene.
The cause of isolated missing teeth remains unclear, but the condition is believed to be associated with genetic or environmental factors during dental development. Missing teeth have been reported in association with increased maternal age, low birth weight, multiple births and rubella virus infection during embryonic life.[citation needed] In a recent study assessing environmental risk factors for hypodontia, it was established that maternal smoking does play a causative role in Hypodontia. Passive smoking and caffeine were also assessed but showed no statistical significance.[7] There is a possible correlation between tooth agenesis and innervation.[8][9][10][11][12] A relationship was also postulated between abnormalities of the brainstem and the presence of agenesis.[13] Hypodontia is often familial, and can also be associated with genetic disorders such as ectodermal dysplasia or Down syndrome. Hypodontia can also be seen in people with cleft lip and palate. Among the possible causes are ...
Objectives: In the present study, it is described the phenotypical analysis and the mutational screening, for genes PAX9 and MSX1, of six families affected by severe forms of tooth agenesis associated with other dental anomalies and systemic entities. Study Design: Six families affected by severe tooth agenesis associated with other dental anomalies and systemic entities were included. Oral exploration, radiological examination, medical antecedents consideration and mutational screening for PAX9 and MSX1 were carried out. Results: No mutations were discovered despite the fact that numerous teeth were missing. An important phenotypical variability was observed within the probands, not being possible to establish a parallelism with the patterns associated to previously described PAX9 and MSX1 mutations.

A specific form of hypodontia with an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance characterized by missing primary and permanent incisors and an increased inclination to eczema and asthma has been found in Finland (Pirinen et al, 2001) and apparently also in other countries (Fried, 1977; Akyuz et al, 1993; Lyngstadaas et al, 1996). RIH patients lack several lower incisors and upper permanent lateral incisors. In addition, some other permanent teeth can be missing. Half the patients have a corresponding primary tooth either missing or peg-shaped. Taurodontism of the molars is noted in more than half the patients. A large proportion of the patients (62%) report allergies manifesting as atopic skin (52%), and asthma (43%). Minor dental anomalies are seen in their parents and siblings in the form of missing and/or peg-shaped upper lateral incisors and missing third molar(s). The proportion of atopic diseases, both in the patients and their family members exceeds reported population prevalences. In a ...
We recently identified a frame-shift mutation in the PAX9 gene as the underlying cause for hypodontia involving permanent molar teeth segregating in an autosomal dominant pattern in a single large family (Stockton et al. 2000). Here we report a small nuclear family in which a father and his daughter are affected with severe hypodontia, involving agenesis of all primary and permanent molars, evidently caused by deletion of the entire PAX9 gene. Hemizygosity at the PAX9 locus in the two affected individuals was initially discovered when an informative single nucleotide polymorphism, identified while sequencing the gene for mutations, appeared to demonstrate non-Mendelian inheritance. Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis with a cosmid containing the PAX9 gene yielded a signal on only one chromosome 14 homologue and confirmed the presence of a deletion encompassing the PAX9 locus. Analysis of microsatellite loci in the vicinity of PAX9 delineated one breakpoint of the deletion. These ...
The purpose of this project is to examine whether the risk of developing ovarian cancer is increased in Danish women with congenital missing teeth as a result of their failure to develop (hypodontia). Should this prove to be the case, these women could be offered regular clinical controls and prophylactic removal of their ovaries when menopause enters and the ovaries are no longer functional (producing hormones).. If there is a connection between congenital hypodontia and the development of different types of cancer, the investigators will perform a genetic screening in families with increased risk of cancer and hypodontia for changes in relevant genes, based on the current literature. The investigators hereby search for new genes, which in a changed form leads to an increased risk of cancer and thereby enables us to perform genetic screening in risk families. ...

Orthodontic treatment for patients with uni- or bilateral congenitally missing lateral incisors is a challenge to effective treatment planning. The two major alternatives, orthodontic space closure or space opening for prosthetic replacements, can both compromise aesthetics, periodontal health, and function.. The aim of this retrospective study was to examine treated patients who had congenitally missing lateral incisors and to compare their opinion of the aesthetic result with the dentists opinions of occlusal function and periodontal health. In this sample, 50 patients were identified. Thirty had been treated with orthodontic space closure, and 20 by space opening and a prosthesis (porcelain bonded to gold and resin bonded bridges). The patients opinion of the aesthetic result was evaluated using the Eastman Esthetic Index questionnaire and during a structured interview. The functional status, dental contact patterns, periodontal condition, and quality of the prosthetic replacement was ...

DISCUSSION. A case of CHH is presented here, wherein a 20-year-old female has missing mandibular central incisors, maxillary second molars, and all the third molars. In addition, she had a malformed supernumerary tooth in the mandibular left anterior region. After a thorough literature search, the rarity of such an occurrence prompted the authors to present this case.. When the tooth or teeth are clinically and radiographically absent and there is no history of extraction or traumatic avulsion of teeth, it is termed as agenesis or hypodontia. Literature search reveals that 15% of missing teeth are lower second premolars, 19% upper second premolars, 29% upper lateral incisors, 11% lower first premolars, 3% lower central incisor, and 1% are lower lateral incisor. Hypodontia of second molars and canine is rare (0.7% of missing teeth). Furthermore, 71% of individuals with hypodontia of some other teeth also lacked third molars.7 In the case presented here, bilateral maxillary second molar agenesis ...
Of 1300 candidates screened to find cases of heritable non-syndromic hypodontia and supernumerary teeth (ST), twenty-five hypodontia and fourteen supernumerary families were found. A family of seventeen members, fourteen of whom exhibited autosomal dominant molar hypodontia with some lateral incisor involvement was identified. The trait was genetically linked to a PAX9 locus on chromosome 14. Efforts resulted in the identification of a novel type of mutation (g.-1258C>T SNP) upstream of the PAX9 gene in a noncoding region.; A second large family of 33 members, four of whom presented with an autosomal recessive rare supernumerary mandibular incisor, was ascertained. 500K SNP arrays were used among affected family members in an effort to map a causative autozygous region that segregated with the phenotype, with limited results. An autozygosity scan of fourteen unaffected relatives and four affected individuals, and a concurrent linkage analysis using 10K SNP data is underway with results pending ...

The congenital absence of teeth, commonly referred to as hypodontia or tooth agenesis, is a common developmental anomaly of human dentition that affects approximately 20% of the population. Although new genetic and molecular approaches in humans and mice have increased our understanding of the molecules that control tooth patterning (number, position, shape and size), the precise nature of the genes involved in hypodontia in humans is poorly understood. Hence, understanding the molecular basis for missing teeth is an issue of paramount importance that is both timely and significant to the practice of dentistry. So far, only two genes have been associated with non-syndromic familial tooth agenesis: MSX1 and PAX9. Substitution mutations in the homeodomain region of MSX1 were linked to premolar agenesis while an insertion mutation in the paired box domain of PAX9 was shown to be responsible for molar oligodontia.. The long-term goals of this research are to elucidate the molecular pathology of ...

The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of tooth agenesis, microdontia, and tooth malformation among non-syndromic oral cleft patients and their potential association with cleft type and gender. Intraoral records and radiographs of 154 patients (97 males and 57 females) were examined. The variables assessed were tooth agenesis, microdontia, dental malformations, and cleft types. The statistics included chi-square and Fishers exact tests as well as logistic regression to assess any mutual effects of gender and cleft type on the dental variables. Tooth agenesis occurred in 50% of the sample and microdontia in 18%. Non-statistically significant odds ratios for the association of gender and cleft type with tooth agenesis were obtained. Tooth agenesis was substantially higher at the unilateral right CL + P and the bilateral CL + P in quadrant 1 and at the unilateral left CL + P and bilateral CL + P in quadrant 2. It was also higher, at the isolated cleft palate (CP) in quadrants 3 and 4.

A suite of dental characteristics displayed by the type specimen are all that distinguishes P. piveteaui from the other members of the genus. This mandibular fragment exhibits a distinct molar morphotype containing a very small and tapered M3 when compared to the distally narrowing M2 (Hartwig). The teeth are very small, but in the range of P. antiquus. Two upper teeth are known from the species, a P4 and M3. When the P4 is compared to an isolated P4 from Poland of either P. antiquus or P. platyodon, it is unconfirmed as to which species the isolated P4 belongs to, that of P. piveteaui is much smaller and broader (Hartwig).. ...

Aims: To assess the rate of tooth movement, anchorage loss, root resorption, and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity in the gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) as a marker for bone remodeling during orthodontic space closure using two different mechanisms. Methods: Space closure was completed in 20 patients with extraction of all 4 premolars. Lateral cephalograms and radio visiographs taken before (T1) and after (T2) space closure were assessed for anchorage loss and root resorption. Alkaline phosphatase levels were measured in 10 patients, which were divided into two groups of five each. Spaces were closed with a screw device in the first group and with active tie-backs in the second. Gingival crevicular fluid samples, collected at intervals, were assayed for alkaline phosphatase spectrophotometrically in each patient. Results: The mean rate of tooth movement was 1.32 0.22 mm/month. The mean amount of anchorage loss in the maxilla and mandible was 1.23 0.60 mm and 1.08 0.65 mm, respectively. Sixty ...

Y1 - 2016. N2 - Background: Missing teeth in early childhood can result in abnormal facial morphology with narrow upper airway. The potential association between dental agenesis or early dental extractions and the presence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) was investigated. Methods: We reviewed clinical data, results of polysomnographic sleep studies, and orthodontic imaging studies of children with dental agenesis (n = 32) or early extraction of permanent teeth (n = 11) seen during the past 5 years and compared their findings to those of age-, gender-, and body mass index-matched children with normal teeth development but tonsilloadenoid (T&A) hypertrophy and symptoms of OSA (n = 64). Results: The 31 children with dental agenesis and 11 children with early dental extractions had at least 2 permanent ...
The objective of this study is to explore differences in crown-to-root angulation between lateral incisors adjacent to palatally impacted canines (PICs) and lateral incisors adjacent to normally erupted canines (NECs). Orthodontic records of 100 subjects (51 with PICs and 49 with NECs) were reviewed. Crown-to-root angulations of all lateral incisors were measured manually on the final panoramic radiographs. Also, three experienced orthodontists were asked to visually inspect the morphology of the lateral incisors on the panoramic radiographs. A mixed model was used to test the difference in crown-to-root angulation of the lateral incisor between the experimental and the control groups. The association between the examiners observations and the presence of a canine impaction was assessed by means of a chi-square test. All analyses were performed at the 0.05 level of statistical significance. A significant (p = 0.009) difference of 2.3° in crown-to-root angulation was found between groups. Also, 66.7%
Tooth agenesis is one of predominant developmental anomalies in humans, usually affecting the permanent dentition generated by sequential tooth formation, and in most cases caused by mutations perturbing epithelial Wnt/β-catenin signaling. Also loss-of-function mutations in the Wnt feedback inhibitor AXIN2 lead to human tooth agenesis. We investigated the functions of Wnt/β-catenin signaling during sequential formation of molar teeth using mouse models. Continuous initiation of new teeth, observed after genetic activation of Wnt/β-catenin signaling in the oral epithelium, was accompanied by enhanced expression of Wnt antagonists and a downregulation of Wnt/β-catenin signaling in the dental mesenchyme. Genetic and pharmacological activation of mesenchymal Wnt/β-catenin signaling negatively regulated sequential tooth formation, an effect partly mediated by Bmp4. Runx2, a gene whose loss-of-function mutations result in sequential formation of supernumerary teeth in the human cleidocranial ...
Abnormalities in size of teeth and number of teeth are occasionally recorded in clinical cases. True generalized microdontia is rare case in which all the teeth are smaller than normal. Mesiodens is commonly located in maxilary central incisor region and uncommon in the mandible. In the present case a 12 year-old boy was healthy; normal in appearance and the medical history was noncontributory. The patient was examined and found to have permanent teeth that were smaller than those of the average adult teeth. The true generalized microdontia was accompanied by mandibular mesiodens. This is a unique case report of non-syndromic association of mandibular hyperdontia with true generalized microdontia.
Most childrens permanent teeth erupt on a fairly predictable schedule. Sometimes, though, one or more teeth might not develop as they should - or at all.. These absent teeth pose functional problems for chewing and hygiene, which can affect long-term dental health. But they can also have a disruptive effect on an otherwise attractive smile if the missing teeth are the upper lateral incisors in the most visible part of the smile.. You normally find this pair of teeth on either side of the upper central incisors (the two front-most teeth). On the other side of the lateral incisors are the canine or eye teeth, known for their pointed appearance. Without the lateral incisors, the canines tend to drift into the space next to the central incisors. This can produce an odd appearance even a layperson will notice: only four teeth where there should be six!. Its possible to correct this abnormality, but it will take time and expense. The first step is usually to move the teeth in the upper jaw with ...
A number of our teeth are not genetically "stable." By that, I mean that we have a high likelihood to from birth be missing teeth, have deformed teeth, or have extra teeth. The third molars are often completely or partially absent. The upper lateral incisors (teeth on either side of the middle top teeth) are often missing or mis-shapen (Google "peg laterals" for more). Even the two center upper teeth sometimes duplicate (Google "mesiodens" for more on that ...
Clinical report of a 27-year-old patient diagnosed with trisomy 16 and congenital cervical scoliosis; within the oral clinical manifestations of the disease were found agenesis of upper lateral incisors, ankyloglossia, over-inserted labial frenulum and high and arched palate; also the patient showed generalized marginal gingivitis associated to plaque with a loss of attachment level in dental organs 31 and 41. Partial or complete trisomy 16 are considered non-compatible with life; this anomaly corresponds to 2% of the causes of abortion in the first trimester; SH and DP Roberts Duckett reported a case of survival of 10 months, and in this case, the survival is 27 years.

Dr. Ciuffreda has been recognized as an "Americas Top Dentist" and "NJ Top Dentist" for General Dentistry and an "Americas Best Dentist" for Family Dentistry.. Bridges are one treatment option for the restoration of missing teeth (or failing teeth that require extraction) and are comprised of multiple crowns joined together. Teeth on either side of the space are prepared (reduced) which serve as the anchoring points for the restoration. As with single crowns, bridges are most often fabricated of either special all-porcelain materials (such as zirconia) or porcelain fused over high gold content metal (PFM).. All-porcelain bridges typically provide the best cosmetic result as they allow for a degree of translucency as with natural tooth structure, and also eliminate the possibility of the "dark line" effect at the gum line that may sometimes occur with PFM bridges. . Dr. Ciuffreda reviews an x-ray of all bridges prior to final placement and cementation to ensure that they are perfectly fitting ...

Results and discussion The oral and dental findings of MPS I include hyperplastic gingiva, macroglossia, high-arched palate, short mandibular rami with abnormal condyles, spaced hypoplastic peg-shaped teeth with retarded eruption; and localised dentigerous cyst-like radiolucencies. Guven et al.(Jan 2008) have investigated the ultra structural and chemical properties of MPS I (Hurler) teeth. The dentin of the primary teeth was characterised by extremely narrow dentinal tubules with an irregular wave-like pattern. The enamel-dentin junction was poorly shaped, micro gaps occurred and the enamel displayed an irregular arrangement of prisms. The enamel and the dentin had an abnormal protein structure and the dentin protein content was low.. The mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are prominent among the lysosomal storage diseases. The intra-lysosomal accumulation of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in this group of diseases induces a cascade of responses affecting cellular functions and maintenance of the ...
Objectives: Contradictory statements exist in the literature concerning the relation between the upper lateral cartilage and the septal earlilage. This study was designed to evaluate the relationship between the cartilages and the intimacy between the upper lateral cartilages and nasal bones and, finally to emphasize its clinical implications. Design and Methods: Cranial extension of the upper lateral cartilages underneath the nasal bones was measured in 59 patients undergoing nasal hump reduction. Microscopically, the relation between the upper lateral cartilages, the se ptal cartilage and nasal bones was evaluated in four different sections. Results: Average cranial extension of the upper lateral cartilage beneath the nasal bones measured 9 mm, being finely separated by a narrow connective tissue. A fusion-type connection was observed between the upper lateral cartilages and the septal cartilage. Conclusian: The fusion between the upper lateral cartilages and the septal cartilage may be ...
You would love to replace your missing teeth with dental implants. And for good reason - theyre the best way to restore life-like, functional teeth. But theres one problem - implants and fixed bridgework (the next, best option) are financially out of your reach.. Theres another viable option, though, that might fit your budget - removable partial dentures (RPDs). Similar to full dentures, RPDs replace only the missing teeth in a dental arch. And theyre much less expensive than implants or bridgework.. RPDs are custom made to fit an individual patient and their particular missing teeth locations. Their frameworks are usually made of vitallium, a strong but lightweight metal alloy. With vitallium, the frame can be made thin enough not to be noticeable but still conduct sensation.. A pink resin or plastic that mimics gum tissue covers the frame, to which we attach prosthetic (false) teeth made of porcelain, glass-filled resin or plastic to precisely match the missing teeth locations. The RPD is ...

You cant see the bone inside your jaw - but the consequences of bone loss are very real. Bone tissue needs stimulation to maintain its volume and density. When teeth are lost, the jaw bone that once supported them loses stimulation and begins to deteriorate. It can lose one-quarter of its width in just one year, and even more as time passes. As the jaw becomes smaller, facial height (the distance from nose to chin) decreases, and facial features lose support. The chin rotates forward, the corners of the mouth turn downward (as if frowning), and the cheeks can appear hollow.

Before birth, these disorders result in the abnormal development of structures including the skin, hair, nails, teeth, and sweat glands. Most people with hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia have a reduced ability to sweat…
... (HED) is a genetic skin disease. Common symptoms include sparse scalp and body hair, reduced ability to sweat, and missing teeth. HED is caused by mutations in the EDA, EDAR, or EDARADD genes. It may be inherited in an X-linked recessive, autosomal recessive, or autosomal dominant manner depending on the genetic cause of the condition. The X-linked form is the most common form. The forms have similar signs and symptoms, however the the autosomal dominant form tends to be the mildest. Treatment of hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia may include special hair care formulas or wigs, measures to prevent overheating, removal of ear and nose concretions, and dental evaluations and treatment (e.g., restorations, dental implants, or dentures ...
Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia has several different inheritance patterns. Most cases are caused by mutations in the EDA gene, which are inherited in an X-linked recessive pattern. A condition is considered X-linked if the mutated gene that causes the disorder is located on the X chromosome, one of the two sex chromosomes. In males (who have only one X chromosome), one altered copy of the gene in each cell is sufficient to cause the condition. In females (who have two X chromosomes), a mutation must be present in both copies of the gene to cause the disorder. Males are affected by X-linked recessive disorders much more frequently than females. A characteristic of X-linked inheritance is that fathers cannot pass X-linked traits to their sons.. In X-linked recessive inheritance, a female with one altered copy of the gene in each cell is called a carrier. In about 70 percent of cases, carriers of hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia experience some features of the condition. These signs and ...
