1/47. Segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia: a case report and review of the literature.

    Segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia (SOD) is a rare, unilateral developmental disorder of the maxilla involving abnormal growth and maturation of the bone, lack of one or both premolars, altered primary molar structure, delayed tooth eruption, and fibrous hyperplasia of the gingiva. In this, the twenty-third reported case of SOD, the literature is reviewed, and the clinical, radiographic, and histopathologic data are described. Computed tomographic scans of this case showed that the involved segment of the maxilla extends mesiodistally from the permanent cuspid to the mesial portion of the first permanent molar, largely limited to the area of the missing premolars. However, the affected bone extends superiorly in the lateral wall of the maxilla to the zygoma and base of the orbit. This article is intended to serve as baseline data for a future article, describing the natural history and possible treatment of SOD, which remain undocumented.

2/47. A suspected periradicular scar: treat or not?

    This paper presents an unusual case of a tooth with multiple adjacent endodontic problems. The diagnosis was complicated by a bony scar that untypically was located around the apex of one of the teeth.

3/47. Follicular or dentigerous (tooth-containing) cyst in the premaxilla of an otherwise edentulous 65-year-old man.

    A unilocular follicular or dentigerous cyst (FDC) with a diameter of 12 mm was observed incidentally in the premaxilla of a midsagittal section of the head of a 65-year-old cadaver. The mucosal lining of the cyst was grey in color and granular in texture: the osseous walls had a thickness of less than 1 mm. In the floor of the cyst, a slender, fully developed incisor tooth was fixed in a horizontal position. The alveolar processes of the maxilla and mandible were completely edentulous. Postmortem computer tomography showed the cyst in an osteolytic lesion of the premaxilla, and histology revealed a lining of non-keratinized stratified squamous epithelium supported by a lamina propria of dense connective tissue. copyright Wiley-Liss, Inc.

4/47. Two cases of totally submerging buried primary molars: characterization of clinical behavior and discussion of cause.

    Submerging buried tooth is a rare condition whose clinical characteristics are unclear. Two cases are reported of submerging buried maxillary second deciduous molar. A review of the literature in Japanese and English provides the clinical condition of the lesion and allows for discussion of its causes.

5/47. Ameloblastic fibroma of the anterior maxilla presenting as a complication of tooth eruption: a case report.

    Ameloblastic fibroma is a rare mixed odontogenic tumour, which is extremely uncommon in the anterior maxillary region. A case report is presented where failure of eruption of an upper central incisor was the presenting feature.

6/47. Maintaining and attenuating periodontal tissues for aesthetic implant placement.

    Alveolar ridge resorption and soft tissue recession after tooth extraction inevitably disrupted the harmonious pre-existing periodontal complex, compromising clinicians' ability to recreate successful aesthetic restorations. Although numerous surgical procedures had been advocated for the augmentation of both the alveolar ridge and its soft tissue to ideal contours, questions remain regarding viability and predictability of these procedures. This is especially critical in the maxillary anterior region, where a the condition of the soft tissue complex and its relationship to the implant restoration and its adjacent dentition often determines the implant's success. The described technique of retaining the root remnant and inducing the proliferation of the surrounding tissue in conjunction with immediate implant placement results in the preservation of existing soft and hard tissue, thus minimizing the necessity of grafting procedures and facilitating primary flap closure during implant placement.

7/47. Segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia: clinical, radiological and histological aspects of four cases.

    Segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia (SOD) is a rare developmental disorder of the maxilla, primarily involving the posterior part of the maxilla. Clinically, the disorder is often diagnosed in early childhood due to a unilateral buccolingual expansion of the posterior alveolar process, gingival enlargement, absence of one or both premolars in the affected region, delayed eruption of the adjacent teeth and malformations of the primary molars. In this report, four patients with SOD are described. The findings were similar to earlier reports, but for the first time an ipsilateral rough erythema on the skin in two of the subjects is reported.

8/47. Case report: a large radicular cyst involving the entire maxillary sinus.

    cysts of the maxillary sinus of odontogenic origin have been well-documented in the literature. Most of these lesions involve the apex of the offending tooth and appear as a well-defined periapical radiolucency. Presented here is a case of an unusually large lesion, which involved the entire maxillary sinus and extended into the floor of the nose. The lesion also caused paresthesia on the affected side. The lesion was removed with conservative treatment without any postoperative complications.

9/47. Combined therapy of mineral trioxide aggregate and guided tissue regeneration in the treatment of external root resorption and an associated osseous defect.

    BACKGROUND: The treatment of external root resorption and associated periodontal defects can be challenging to the most astute clinician. In this case report, a multidisciplinary approach was performed to treat a maxillary central incisor that presented with a sinus tract. An amalgam restoration had been placed approximately 10 years earlier to repair an area of external root resorption. methods: A full-thickness mucoperiosteal flap was reflected from teeth #8 to #9. Following degranulation of the area, an amalgam restoration was found on the distal root surface of tooth #8. A 2-wall osseous lesion was also associated with the distal surface of #8. The amalgam was removed and the defect was restored with mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA). The root surface was chemically conditioned with tetracycline, and the osseous defect was grafted with decalcified freeze-dried bone allograft (DFDBA) and a calcium sulfate barrier. RESULTS: An 8 mm gain in clinical attachment, as well as an increase in radiodensity, was noted on the distal surface of tooth #8 at 15 months postsurgery. The patient was also asymptomatic, with no clinical signs of inflammation present. CONCLUSIONS: A combined approach utilizing MTA for root surface repair, and DFDBA and calcium sulfate to address an associated osseous lesion, appears to be a viable modality in the treatment of chronic endodontic/periodontal lesions.

10/47. Eruption cyst formation associated with cyclosporin A.

    BACKGROUND: Cyclosporin A (CyA) is a potent immunomodulatory agent with a wide range of applications. Despite its therapeutic value, multiple adverse effects of CyA have been identified. This case report describes eruption cyst formation as a possible adverse effect of CyA administration during tooth eruption in a boy treated with CyA as a consequence of a cardiac transplantation. The clinical diagnosis of eruption cyst was confirmed by histopathological examination. TREATMENT: The periodontal treatment consisted of supragingival and subgingival scaling, followed by surgical removal of the tissues overlying the crowns of the teeth associated with eruption cysts, and flap surgery in the region of gingival overgrowth. The patient was then placed on quarterly periodontal supportive therapy and his immunosuppressive medication was switched from CyA to tacrolimus. RESULTS: Twenty months after therapy, neither new cyst formation nor recurrence of gingival overgrowth was registered. CONCLUSION: Formation of an eruption cyst may be an adverse effect of CyA in children with erupting teeth.
