The root surface in human teeth: a microradiographic study. (1/447)

In an attempt to clarify the nature of the human cemento-dentinal junction, ground sections of incompletely formed and fully formed extracted teeth were prepared and their histology compared with their microradiographic appearances. The results showed that incompletely formed teeth possess distinctive surface layers outside the granular layer of Tomes. The evidence indicates that these layers are of dentinal origin; their presence during development supports previous explanations by the author of the hyaline layer of Hopewell-Smith and of so-called intermediate cementum. The results also indicate that the granular layer of Tomes does not represent the outer limit of root dentine. The relationship of these surface layers to the definitive cementum which is present in fully formed teeth was studied in both young and older patients. From the results it was concluded that cementum formation begins in the more apical region of the teeth at a time when root formation is well advanced, and that it spreads towards the crown rather than in the generally accepted reverse direction.  (+info)

Arrested eruption of the permanent lower second molar. (2/447)

The incidence of retention/impaction of the permanent lower second molar (M2inf) lies between 0.6/1000 and 3/1000. Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to investigate the craniofacial morphology, the frequency of dental anomalies and the inclination of the affected M2inf and the adjacent first molar in patients with arrested eruption of M2inf. The overall goal was to elucidate the aetiology of arrested tooth eruption and to present the characteristics of these patients in order to improve diagnosis and treatment planning. Radiographic material (profile radiographs and orthopantomograms) from 19 patients (nine females and 10 males; 13-19 years of age at the time of referral) were analysed. The ages of the patients when profile radiographs were taken for cephalometric analysis varied from 8 to 16 years. The study shows that this group of patients, compared with a reference group, had an increased sagittal jaw relationship (Class II). Specifically, the mandibular prognathism was less, the mandibular gonial angle smaller, the mandibular alveolar prognathism enlarged and the maxillary incisor inclination less than in the reference group. Furthermore, this group of patients had a more frequent occurrence of morphological tooth anomalies, such as root deflections, invaginations, and taurodontism. However, none of the patients with arrested eruption of M2inf had agenesis of the lower third molar. The study did not reveal an association between the degree of inclination of the M2inf and that of the first molar in the same region. The results of this investigation show that conditions such as the craniofacial morphology and deviations in the dentition are associated with arrested eruption of M2inf. Therefore, it is important to evaluate these conditions in future diagnosis and treatment planning of patients with arrested eruption of M2inf.  (+info)

Histological and histochemical quantification of root resorption incident to the application of intrusive force to rat molars. (3/447)

This study was conducted to investigate the nature of root resorption resulting from intrusive forces applied to the rat lower molars, by means of histological and histochemical techniques with tartrate resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP). Thirty-eight 13-week-old Wistar strain male rats were used. Intrusive force was created by a fixed appliance which was adjusted to exert an initial force of 50 g for the duration of 1, 2, and 3 weeks. The degree of root resorption and distribution of TRAP positive cells were evaluated. On the root surface, the TRAP positive scores were low in the apical regions. Significant differences in the scores were found in the inter-radicular region of the roots between the experimental and control groups for the 2- and 3-week groups. More active resorption of bone occurred during the experimental period, as denoted by greater TRAP positive scores on the bone than on the root surface. Root resorption scores in the apical root region were larger in the 2- and 3-week groups than in the 1-week group. Significant differences in the root resorption scores were also found between the 1- and 3-week groups in the inter-radicular region, indicating that intrusive force application of a longer duration may lead to a higher frequency of root resorption. It is shown that, irrespective of the level of TRAP positive cells and root resorption scores, the degree of root resorption activity is higher in the apical root region than in the inter-radicular area. These results indicate that cellular cementum may be resorbed more easily because of its richer organic components and low mineralized structure.  (+info)

The effect of tooth position on the image of unerupted canines on panoramic radiographs. (4/447)

The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether panoramic tomograms, which are routinely used in orthodontic practice, can provide adequate information to localize an impacted canine. The effect of changes in position and inclination of an impacted canine on orthopantomograms was investigated in an experimental set-up. An upper canine was removed from a human skull and replaced in a positioning system, enabling simulated positional variations in impactions. In comparison with the image of a contralateral well-aligned canine, the length of the impacted tooth always decreased or remained unchanged, whereas the tooth width increased or remained unchanged. The angulation of the image was unaffected by varying the position of the impacted canine, but altered when the inclination of the tooth in a sagittal or frontal direction was changed. If there was any transversal shift of the impacted canine on the orthopantomogram, it was always towards the mid-sagittal plane. The curvature of the tooth increased after dorsal inclination and decreased after ventral inclination (in comparison with the contralateral well-aligned canine).  (+info)

Evolution of periodontal regeneration: from the roots' point of view. (5/447)

Tissues lost as a consequence of periodontal diseases, i.e. bone, cementum and a functional periodontal ligament (PDL), can be restored to some degree. Nevertheless, results are often disappointing. There is a need to develop new paradigms for regenerating periodontal tissues that are based on an understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating the development and regeneration of periodontal tissues. As one approach we have developed strategies for maintaining cementoblasts in culture by first determining the gene profile for these cells in situ. Next, cells were immortalized in vitro using SV 40 large T antigen (SV40 Tag) or by using mice containing transgenes enabling cellular immortality in vitro. Cementoblasts in vitro retained expression of genes associated with mineralized tissues, bone sialoprotein and osteocalcin, that were not linked with periodontal fibroblasts either in situ or in vitro. Further, cementoblasts promoted mineralization in vitro as measured by von Kossa and ex vivo using a severely compromised immunodeficient (SCID) mouse model. These cells responded to growth factors by eliciting changes in gene profile and mitogenesis and to osteotropic hormones by evoking changes in gene profile and ability to induce mineral nodule formation in vitro. The ultimate goal of these studies is to provide the knowledge base required for designing improved modalities for use in periodontal regenerative therapies.  (+info)

High-altitude illness induced by tooth root infection. (6/447)

High-altitude illness may occur after recent pulmonary infection, but high-altitude illness after root canal therapy has not been described previously. A 44-year-old man is presented who skied to a 3333 m high peak in the Eastern Alps one day after he had undergone root canal therapy because of a tooth root infection. After 4 hours above 3000 m severe symptoms of high-altitude illness, including pulmonary oedema, developed. His condition improved after immediate descent. The next day he presented with local and general signs of infection which were successfully treated with gingival incisions and antibiotics. In conclusion, acute tooth root infection and root canal therapy may induce high-altitude illness at an altitude just above 3000 m.  (+info)

A mathematic-geometric model to calculate variation in mandibular arch form. (7/447)

A mathematic-geometric model was used to evaluate the variation of mandibular dental arch length with respect to the incisor inclination, but without modifying the intercanine width. In analytical terms, the equations of the curves representing the lower dental arch, before and after incisor inclination of 1 mm and of 1 degree, with controlled and uncontrolled tipping, were studied. The length of the mandibular dental arch changed in the parabolic arch form by 1.51 mm for each millimetre of incisor inclination with respect to the occlusal functional plane, by 0.54 mm for each degree of controlled tipping and by 0.43 mm for each degree of uncontrolled tipping. In the elliptical arch form (e = 0.78), it changed by 1.21, 0.43, and 0.34 mm, respectively, in the hyperbolic form by 1.61, 0.57, and 0.46 mm, in the circular form by 1.21, 0.43, and 0.34 mm, and in the catenary form by 2.07, 0.74, and 0.59 mm. The results show that by changing the arch form without modifying the dimension of the dental arch, different arch lengths can be gained for each millimetre of proclination. In addition, by controlled tipping an inter-incisive arch one-fifth longer than by uncontrolled tipping can be obtained. It would be advisable in orthodontic treatment planning to evaluate the type of dental arch, since the space available or the space required changes depending on the arch form and on the orthodontic tooth movement.  (+info)

Predominant cultivable flora isolated from human root surface caries plaque. (8/447)

Plaque samples were obtained from tooth surfaces exhibiting typical lesions of root surface caries and were immediately cultured by a continuous anaerobic procedure. The bacterial composition of root caries flora was determined on individual samples. Representative isolates from each specimen were characterized by morphological and physiological criteria. In addition, fluorescent antibody reagents were used to confirm the identification of Streptococcus mutans and Actinomyces viscosus. The plaque samples could be divided into two groups on the basis of the presence or absence of S. mutans in the plaque. In group I plaques, S. mutans comprised 30 percent of the total cultivable flora. S. sanguis was either not found or was present in very low number. In group II plaques, S. mutans was not detected, and S. sanguis formed 48 percent of the total plaque flora. A. viscosus was the dominant organism in all plaque samples, accounting for 47 percent of the group I isolates and 41 percent of the group II isolates.  (+info)

There are two types of tooth resorption:

1. External resorption: This type occurs when the resorption takes place on the surface of the tooth, and is usually caused by an infection or injury.
2. Internal resorption: This type occurs when the resorption takes place within the tooth structure, and can be caused by factors such as a crack or a cavity.

Symptoms of tooth resorption may include sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks, pain when biting down, and visible holes or pits on the surface of the tooth. Treatment options for tooth resorption depend on the severity of the condition and can range from fillings to root canal therapy or extraction.

Prevention is key in avoiding tooth resorption, by maintaining good oral hygiene practices such as brushing and flossing regularly, avoiding sugary foods and drinks, and visiting a dentist for regular check-ups. Early detection and treatment can help prevent further damage and save the tooth from being lost.

In conclusion, tooth resorption is a process where the body breaks down and reabsorbs the dentin layer of the tooth, leading to sensitivity, pain, and potentially significant damage to the tooth structure. It can be treated with various methods depending on its severity, but prevention through good oral hygiene practices and regular check-ups is key in avoiding this condition altogether.

Prevention includes regular dental check-ups, good oral hygiene practices such as brushing and flossing, a balanced diet, avoiding sugary snacks and drinks, and quitting smoking. Treatment options may include fillings, crowns, root canals, and extractions.

Root caries is different from other types of tooth decay, such as coronal caries, which affects the crown or enamel of the tooth. It requires specialized dental care and attention to prevent and treat effectively.

There are several types of tooth loss, including:

1. Anterior tooth loss: This occurs when one or more front teeth are missing.
2. Posterior tooth loss: This occurs when one or more back teeth are missing.
3. Bilateral tooth loss: This occurs when there is a loss of teeth on both sides of the dental arch.
4. Unilateral tooth loss: This occurs when there is a loss of teeth on one side of the dental arch.
5. Complete tooth loss: This occurs when all teeth are missing from the dental arch.
6. Partial tooth loss: This occurs when only some teeth are missing from the dental arch.

Tooth loss can cause various problems such as difficulty chewing and biting food, speech difficulties, and changes in the appearance of the face and smile. It can also lead to other oral health issues such as shifting of the remaining teeth, bone loss, and gum recession.

Treatment options for tooth loss vary depending on the cause and severity of the condition. Some possible treatments include dentures, implants, bridges, and crowns. It is important to seek professional dental care if you experience any type of tooth loss to prevent further complications and restore oral health.

1. Congenital abnormalities: These are present at birth and may be caused by genetic factors or environmental influences during fetal development. Examples include hypodontia (absence of one or more teeth), hyperdontia (extra teeth), or anodontia (absence of all teeth).
2. Acquired abnormalities: These can occur at any time during life, often as a result of trauma, infection, or other conditions. Examples include tooth decay, gum disease, or tooth wear and tear.
3. Developmental abnormalities: These occur during the development of teeth and may be caused by genetic factors, nutritional deficiencies, or exposure to certain medications or chemicals. Examples include enamel hypoplasia (thinning of tooth enamel) or peg-shaped teeth.
4. Structural abnormalities: These are irregularities in the shape or structure of teeth, such as anomalies in the size, shape, or position of teeth. Examples include crowded or misaligned teeth, or teeth that do not erupt properly.
5. Dental caries (tooth decay): This is a bacterial infection that causes the breakdown of tooth structure, often leading to cavities and tooth loss if left untreated.
6. Periodontal disease: This is an inflammatory condition that affects the supporting tissues of teeth, including the gums and bone, and can lead to tooth loss if left untreated.
7. Tooth wear: This refers to the wear and tear of teeth over time, often due to habits such as bruxism (teeth grinding) or acid reflux.
8. Dental anomalies: These are rare, genetic conditions that affect the development and structure of teeth, such as peg-shaped teeth or geminated teeth (two teeth fused together).

These are just a few examples of tooth abnormalities, and there are many more conditions that can affect the health and appearance of teeth. Regular dental check-ups can help detect and address any issues early on to ensure good oral health.

Synonyms: supplemental tooth; extra tooth; hyperdontia.

See Also: Tooth; Dentition.

There are different types of tooth wear, including:

1. Attrition: This is the most common type of tooth wear and occurs when the enamel surfaces of teeth rub against each other.
2. Abrasion: This type of wear occurs when the outer layer of enamel is worn away by a foreign object such as a toothbrush or dental appliance.
3. Erosion: This type of wear occurs when acidic substances such as citrus fruits, soda, and sugary drinks dissolve the enamel surface of teeth.
4. Exfoliation: This type of wear occurs when a tooth is lost due to decay, injury, or gum disease, and the surrounding teeth shift to fill the gap.

Tooth wear can cause a range of symptoms including:

* Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
* Pain when chewing or biting
* Aesthetic concerns such as chipped or worn-down teeth
* Difficulty speaking or pronouncing certain words

Tooth wear can be prevented or treated by practicing good oral hygiene, avoiding acidic and sugary foods and drinks, using a soft-bristled toothbrush, and visiting the dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. In severe cases, dental restorations such as fillings, crowns, or veneers may be necessary to restore the shape, size, and function of teeth.

A tooth that has died due to injury, disease, or other factors and cannot be saved or repaired. A nonvital tooth may require extraction. Also called dead tooth.

The term "nonvital" is used in the medical field to describe something that is not functioning properly or is no longer alive. In the context of dentistry, a nonvital tooth is one that has died and cannot be saved or repaired. This can happen due to injury, disease, or other factors. Nonvital teeth are typically extracted to prevent further infection or complications. The term "dead tooth" is sometimes used interchangeably with "nonvital tooth."

Impacted teeth can cause a range of symptoms including pain, swelling, and infection. If left untreated, impacted teeth can lead to more serious complications such as abscesses or cysts that can damage the surrounding bone and tissue.

Treatment options for impacted teeth depend on the severity of the impaction and may include antibiotics, pain relief medication, or surgical removal of the tooth. In some cases, impacted wisdom teeth may be removed prophylactically to prevent complications from arising in the future.

It's important to note that not all impacted teeth require treatment and your dentist will assess the situation and provide recommendations based on your individual needs.

There are several types of tooth discoloration, including:

1. Extrinsic stains: These are the most common type of tooth discoloration and are caused by factors such as coffee, tea, red wine, and smoking. These stains can be removed with professional cleaning and whitening treatments.
2. Intrinsic stains: These are deeper stains that occur within the tooth itself and can be caused by factors such as fluorosis, tetracycline staining, and overexposure to fluoride during childhood. These stains can be more difficult to remove and may require more advanced treatments such as porcelain veneers or teeth whitening.
3. Age-related discoloration: As we age, our teeth can become naturally more yellow due to the accumulation of calcium and other minerals on the surface of the teeth. This type of discoloration is more common in adults over the age of 40.
4. Trauma: A blow to the mouth or a injury to a tooth can cause discoloration.
5. Disease: Certain medical conditions such as bruxism, gum disease, and enamel defects can also cause tooth discoloration.

Tooth discoloration can be treated with various methods such as teeth whitening, dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and crowns. The choice of treatment depends on the severity and cause of the discoloration. It is important to consult a dentist if you notice any changes in the color of your teeth, as early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent further damage and improve the appearance of your smile.

During the procedure, the dentist will typically use a pair of forceps to grip the tooth and rock it back and forth to loosen it from the surrounding bone and ligaments. Once the tooth is loose, the dentist will use a specialized instrument to extract the tooth from its socket. The socket may be packed with gauze or other materials to help stop any bleeding and promote healing.

Tooth avulsion can be performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the area where the tooth is located, or sedation dentistry, which helps the patient relax and feel more comfortable during the procedure. After the procedure, the patient may need to follow a special post-operative care plan to ensure proper healing and minimize any discomfort or complications.

Some common types of tooth diseases include:

1. Caries (cavities): A bacterial infection that causes the decay of tooth enamel, leading to holes or cavities in the teeth.
2. Periodontal disease (gum disease): An infection of the tissues surrounding the teeth, including the gums, periodontal ligament, and jawbone.
3. Tooth sensitivity: Pain or discomfort when eating or drinking hot or cold foods and beverages due to exposed dentin or gum recession.
4. Dental abscesses: Infections that can cause pain, swelling, and pus in the teeth and gums.
5. Tooth erosion: Wear away of the tooth enamel caused by acidic foods and drinks or certain medical conditions.
6. Tooth grinding (bruxism): The habit of grinding or clenching the teeth, which can cause wear on the teeth, jaw pain, and headaches.
7. Dental malocclusion: Misalignment of the teeth, which can cause difficulty chewing, speaking, and other oral health problems.
8. Tooth loss: Loss of one or more teeth due to decay, gum disease, injury, or other causes.

Prevention and treatment of tooth diseases usually involve good oral hygiene practices such as brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. In some cases, more advanced treatments such as fillings, crowns, root canals, or extractions may be necessary.

This condition is characterized by the formation of new bone tissue around the tooth, which leads to the immobility of the tooth and can cause pain, discomfort, and difficulty in chewing. Tooth ankylosis can be diagnosed through radiographic examination and symptoms such as pain or limited range of motion of the affected tooth.

Treatment options for tooth ankylosis include antibiotics, pain management medications, and surgical intervention to remove the bone adhesions. In severe cases, extraction of the affected tooth may be necessary. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment can help prevent complications and improve the chances of successful treatment outcomes.

Root resorption is a process that occurs in the development of teeth, during which the roots are reabsorbed or dissolved by the surrounding tissues. This process can occur for various reasons and can have significant implications for the health and development of the teeth.

During root resorption, the roots of the teeth are broken down and absorbed into the jawbone, causing the teeth to become shorter and less stable. This can lead to a range of dental problems, including tooth mobility, sensitivity, and increased risk of tooth loss.

There are several different types of root resorption, including:

1. External root resorption: This type occurs when the roots are exposed to external forces, such as trauma or infection.
2. Internal root resorption: This type occurs when the roots are damaged from within, such as due to a dental procedure or a genetic defect.
3. Secondary root resorption: This type occurs when the roots are reabsorbed after a previous dental procedure, such as a root canal.

The causes of root resorption can vary and may include:

1. Bacterial infection: Bacteria can cause inflammation and resorption of the roots.
2. Trauma: A blow to the mouth or face can cause external root resorption.
3. Genetic defects: Some people may be more prone to root resorption due to genetic factors.
4. Dental procedures: Root canals, dental implants, and other dental procedures can sometimes cause root resorption.
5. Systemic diseases: Certain systemic diseases, such as periodontal disease, can increase the risk of root resorption.

The diagnosis of root resorption is typically made through a combination of clinical examination and imaging tests, such as X-rays or CT scans. Treatment options for root resorption will depend on the underlying cause and may include antibiotics, pain management, or in severe cases, extraction of the affected teeth.

It is important to note that root resorption can be a complex condition and should be evaluated by a dental professional as soon as possible to prevent further complications and ensure proper treatment.

Tooth erosion can lead to sensitive teeth, pain, and discomfort when eating or drinking hot or cold foods and beverages. In severe cases, it can cause teeth to appear yellow or brown, become brittle and prone to breaking, or even result in tooth loss.

To prevent tooth erosion, good oral hygiene practices such as regular brushing and flossing, avoiding acidic foods and drinks, and using a fluoride-based toothpaste can help protect teeth from acid wear. Dental sealants or varnishes may also be applied to the teeth to provide extra protection against erosion.

If tooth erosion has already occurred, dental treatments such as fillings, crowns, or veneers may be necessary to repair damaged teeth. In severe cases, teeth may need to be extracted and replaced with dental implants or bridges.

Symptoms may include sensitivity, discomfort, visible holes or stains on teeth, bad breath, and difficulty chewing or biting. If left untreated, dental caries can progress and lead to more serious complications such as abscesses, infections, and even tooth loss.

To prevent dental caries, it is essential to maintain good oral hygiene habits, including brushing your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, and using mouthwash regularly. Limiting sugary foods and drinks and visiting a dentist for regular check-ups can also help prevent the disease.

Dental caries is treatable through various methods such as fillings, crowns, root canals, extractions, and preventive measures like fissure sealants and fluoride applications. Early detection and prompt treatment are crucial to prevent further damage and restore oral health.

Demineralization is the opposite process of remineralization, where minerals are deposited back onto the tooth surface. Demineralization can progress over time and lead to tooth decay, also known as dental caries, if not treated promptly. Early detection and prevention of demineralization through good oral hygiene practices and regular dental check-ups can help to prevent tooth decay and maintain a healthy tooth structure.

Tooth demineralization can be detected early on by dental professionals using various diagnostic tools such as radiographs (x-rays) or visual examination of the teeth. Treatment options for demineralization depend on the severity of the condition and may include fluoride treatments, fillings, or other restorative procedures to repair damaged tooth structures.

It is important to maintain good oral hygiene practices such as brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing once a day, and limiting sugary snacks and drinks to prevent demineralization and promote remineralization of the teeth. Regular dental check-ups are also crucial in detecting early signs of demineralization and ensuring proper treatment to maintain good oral health.

In this definition, we have used the following medical terms:

* Anodontia: This term refers to the absence of teeth. It is derived from the Greek words 'ano' meaning without, and 'dont' meaning tooth.
* Genetic: This term refers to something that is inherited or passed down through genes.
* Environmental: This term refers to factors that are external to the body, such as exposure to radiation or certain drugs during pregnancy.

Overall, anodontia is a rare condition that can be caused by a variety of factors, and it can have significant impacts on an individual's quality of life.

The symptoms of dental pulp necrosis can include:

* Toothache pain that is often severe and throbbing
* Sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks
* Swelling and redness in the gum tissue near the affected tooth
* A bad taste or smell in the mouth
* Discharge of pus from the gums near the affected tooth

If left untreated, dental pulp necrosis can lead to more serious complications such as an abscessed tooth, bone loss, and even sepsis. Treatment options for dental pulp necrosis include root canal therapy, extraction of the affected tooth, or antibiotic therapy if the infection has spread beyond the tooth.

It is important to seek professional dental care if you experience any symptoms of dental pulp necrosis to prevent further complications and maintain good oral health.

Symptoms of periapical periodontitis may include:

* Pain or tenderness in the affected tooth
* Swelling and redness in the gum tissue
* Bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth
* Discharge of pus from the affected tooth

Periapical periodontitis is typically diagnosed through a combination of clinical examination and diagnostic tests such as radiographs (x-rays) or dental scans. Treatment may involve antibiotics, a root canal, or extraction of the affected tooth, depending on the severity of the infection and the extent of damage to the pulp and surrounding tissues.
