1/48. Multiple idiopathic resorption in the primary dentition: review of the literature and case report.

    Resorption of primary teeth is a normal physiologic process, except when it occurs prematurely. Resorption of permanent teeth is considered abnormal, and multiple etiologic factors have been implicated. A significant number of cases are represented by idiopathic resorption. Multiple idiopathic root resorption stands as a separate physiologic entity that has been described as affecting the entire permanent dentition. Multiple idiopathic resorption of primary teeth has not been previously reported. A case is described and a differential diagnosis is provided. The specific radiographic diagnostic criteria for this condition affecting the primary dentition are outlined.

2/48. A case report of pre-eruptive coronal resorption in a mandibular canine.

    A case of intracoronal resorption in a recently erupted mandibular canine in an 11-year-old girl is presented. Possible aetiology and approaches to treatment of such lesions are discussed.

3/48. Radiographic findings in 224Ra-caused dental resorptions.

    Dental resorptions as a delayed effect of thorium X (224Ra) were observed in four patients. The radiographic findings showed distinct and representative patterns. Apparently, the observed changes are typical for delayed alterations related to 224Ra-specific disturbances in the alveolar process. Degenerative and inflammatory reactions may also be involved in the pathogenesis.

4/48. External cervical resorption associated with localized gingival overgrowth.

    AIM: To describe the presentation and management of an unusual lesion of external cervical resorption. SUMMARY: The salient features of this unusual presentation of the external cervical resorption with localized gingival overgrowth, and the resorption located almost wholly on the labial aspect of a maxillary incisor crown are described. Extensive loss of enamel had occurred. The management and possible aetiology of the resorptive lesion are discussed. KEY learning POINTS: Localized gingival overgrowth can be associated with external cervical resorption.The cervical resorption does not necessarily indicate pulp canal infection and the need for root-canal treatment.

5/48. amelogenesis imperfecta: a scanning electron microscopic and histopathologic study.

    amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a hereditary defect in enamel formation affecting both primary and permanent dentition. Scanning electron microscopic investigation is one of the most effective methods in diagnosing and identifying the type of amelogenesis imperfecta. The aim of this study was to investigate the ultrastructure of different types of amelogenesis imperfecta enamel. The primary teeth of three children with AI aged 4, 10 and 11-years-old were studied by scanning electron microscopy and irregular enamel, irregularities in enamel crystallites, hypoplastic areas on the enamel surface were seen. Histopathological evaluation revealed predentin areas with irregular canaliculi between normal dentin and internal resorption areas in the pulp tissue. Conclusively, in amelogenesis imperfecta, enamel tissue is mostly affected besides minor defects in dentinal and pulpal tissue.

6/48. Aneurysmal bone cyst of the maxilla--an association with tooth resorption.

    The aneurysmal bone cyst is an uncommon lesion of the jaws. Cases involving the maxilla have been reported infrequently. Despite uncertainty as to the aetiology of the aneurysmal bone cyst, it is regarded as a benign lesion. Conservative surgical treatment with regular postoperative follow-up is recommended. The case described here presented with tooth mobility resulting from extensive root resorption. A review of the literature reveals that significant root resorption is not a commonly reported feature of aneurysmal bone cysts. For the present case we interpret the evidence as supporting a diagnosis of idiopathic root resorption complicated by the formation of a aneurysmal bone cyst.

7/48. Histopathology of the teeth in segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia: new findings.

    Histological examination of the deciduous teeth in two cases of segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia (SOMD) showed fibrous enlargement of the pulps, an irregular pulp/dentine interface displaying many pseudoinclusions and pulp stones. There were tubular defects in the coronal dentine from pulp horn to cusp tip, an irregular tubular structure to the circumpulpal dentine of the apical half, a focally deficient odontoblast layer and widespread external resorption. Together with the clinical features of unilateral maxillary enlargement, upper alveolar expansion in the distal segment, increased spacing and delayed eruption of the deciduous molars and absence of premolar teeth, these histological appearances allow distinction of this condition from fibrous dysplasia (FD), segmental hemifacial hypertrophy (SHH) and regional odontodysplasia (ROD).

8/48. Severe incisor resorption by impacted maxillary canines: case report and literature review.

    This paper reviews the literature relating to incisor resorption caused by impacted maxillary canines, and describes the presentation and management of a patient with unusually severe early resorption. This case highlights the need for careful monitoring of maxillary canine eruption for all paediatric patients.

9/48. Pre-eruptive intracoronal radiolucent defect: a case of a nonprogressive lesion.

    Pre-eruptive intracoronal resorption or defect is an unusual radiolucency located in the dentin, just beneath the dentin-enamel junction of unerupted teeth. The pathogenesis of the phenomenon is unclear. The present case with a radiolucency that has not changed in its dimension over a period of almost 7 years, until tooth eruption, raises a question about the progressive nature of the defect that is defined as "resorption." Resorption may not be the sole explanation for a pre-eruptive intracoronal radiolucent defect. The authors also challenge the hypothesis of "local pressure" as a prime cause for the defect. The authors conclude that, when dealing with pre-eruptive intracoronal radiolucency in permanent teeth, a conservative approach with radiographic follow-up is the recommended treatment if the lesion does not seem to endanger the pulp. Intervention can be postponed until after tooth eruption when treatment does not require surgical intervention.

10/48. Radiolucent lesion of an unerupted mandibular molar.

    A coronal radiolucent lesion of an unerupted and partially developed mandibular second molar was coincidentally found during a routine radiographic orthodontic examination of a generally healthy 9-year old girl. The size of the lesion increased continuously during a 2-year observation period. Histologic examination after extracting the tooth proved the lesion to be an idiopathic external coronal resorption. In a review of the literature, we found no original research on the subject. However, the number of case reports suggests that idiopathic external coronal resorptions are quite common in young patients. Their etiology, however, remains unclear. The case history, histologic findings, differential diagnoses, and possible treatment approaches suggested in the literature are described.
