The Familial Rhino Tooth: Two Mesiodentes.

08:00 EDT 7th June 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "The Familial Rhino Tooth: Two Mesiodentes."

The authors herein report on 2 cases of patients who had supernumerary teeth. The 2 cases outline how 1 was managed sub-optimally and other managed efficiently. The patients were direct relatives with a very similar clinical problem. This case report explores the genetic relevance of mesiodentes. This case report aims to outline the importance in examination, diagnosis and surgical removal of supernumerary teeth. It also describes several lessons that all members of the dental and wider surgical team can learn from, with regards to supernumerary teeth and more specifically mesiodentes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes. It is differentiated from TOOTH ATTRITION in that this type of wearing away is the result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It differs also from TOOTH EROSION, the progressive loss of the hard substance of a tooth by chemical processes not involving bacterial action. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p2)

The wearing away of a tooth as a result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It is chiefly associated with aging. It is differentiated from TOOTH ABRASION (the pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by friction, as brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes) and from TOOTH EROSION (the loss of substance caused by chemical action without bacterial action). (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p86)

The upper part of the tooth, which joins the lower part of the tooth (TOOTH ROOT) at the cervix (TOOTH CERVIX) at a line called the cementoenamel junction. The entire surface of the crown is covered with enamel which is thicker at the extremity and becomes progressively thinner toward the cervix. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p216)

A fabricated tooth substituting for a natural tooth in a prosthesis. It is usually made of porcelain or plastic.

The constricted part of the tooth at the junction of the crown and root or roots. It is often referred to as the cementoenamel junction (CEJ), the line at which the cementum covering the root of a tooth and the enamel of the tooth meet. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p530, p433)
