Fusion of permanent maxillary right central incisor and mesiodens in an 8-year-old child

Next Section Description Fusion of the mesiodens maxilar is a developmental anomaly that may occur due to joining of the two separated tooth germs. The GTs of teeth with normal mesiodens maxilar delayed eruption and the GTs of mesiodens were examined.


Adequate attached gingiva was available labially hence an inverse bevel incision was mesiodens maxilar using a number 11 blade, mm from the gingival margin, following a scalloped pattern around the gingival margins. This was followed by a second incision into the intracrevicular sulcus. The incision was extended distally mesiodens maxilar blend into the gingival sulcus of the untreated teeth.

A full-thickness flap was raised to allow bone exposure for the osseous recontouring. Palatally, a scalloped inverse mesiodens maxilar incision using mesiodens maxilar number 11 blade was made following a scalloped pattern.

After the bone recontouring, the flap was then recontoured to follow the new position of the bone.

Bone recontouring was carried out using fissure burs and coarse diamond stones with copious amounts of normal saline. The bone was thinned until there was a mesiodens maxilar layer remaining over the surface.

The clinical complications of mesiodens mesiodens maxilar delayed eruption of permanent incisors, axial rotation or inclination of adjacent teeth or mesiodens, midline diastema, intraoral infection, root anomaly, and pulpitis of the mesiodens [ 17 - 20 ].

This indicates surgical removal of mesiodens maxilar supernumerary teeth mesiodens maxilar 23 ]. Treatment of mesiodens varies on several factors whether to manage surgically or to observe the condition. The major factor is the child's age, in the very young patient, the ability to stand a surgical procedure is of chief concern.

The advantage of early management is essential mesiodens maxilar the long-term effect to avoid unpleasant experience that may have psychological effect on patient [ 24 ]. Second is the closeness of mesiodens maxilar mesiodens to the incisors and stage of development of the dental structures adjoining teeth?

mesiodens maxilar In cases of undeveloped root, one should know the danger of surgical trauma to the developing roots of the permanent incisors and the possible damage to the future dental growth. In cases where the surgical approach endangers the sustainability of sensitive developing tooth bud, it may be suitable to hold-up mesiodens maxilar treatment.

At last, the dentist must assess the relative position of the mesiodens within the jaw whether mesiodens is labially or palatally placed.

In surgical procedure, access to the mesiodens must be considered corresponding to the quantity of bone amputation and possible damage to existing incisors.

Mesiodens | definition of mesiodens by Medical dictionary

In children, eruption of mesiodens is possible and complete eruption is occasional, some mesiodens may erupt incompletely and hence more favorable surgical approach may be accomplished with time [ 2425 ].

Mesiodens maxilar the first case, one erupted and unerupted mesiodentes were present. No signs and symptoms were present associated with an unerupted mesiodens.

On the contrary, root resorption was significant with respect to right central incisor in another case. When no clinical sign is evident and the mesiodens is asymptomatic mesiodens maxilar impacted, it can cause many pathological findings like granuloma or cyst as already discussed, and the young children are more prone to these manifestations.

This is because the permanent dentition is not developed yet at this age and occlusion is not established, chances of pathologies in young children is highly associated with unerupted supernumerary teeth mesiodens maxilar it may act as nidus for cystic transformation or spread of infection.


Hence prophylactic extraction mesiodens maxilar these mesiodentes is indicated in order to avoid problems and minimize the complications. Retepegs formation is absent mesiodens maxilar in cases that are secondarily infected. As the connective tissue wall is derived from the dental follicle of developing enamel organ, it is a loose connective tissue stroma, which is rich in acid mucopolysaccharides.

In the inflamed dentigerous cyst, mesiodens maxilar epithelium commonly demonstrates hyperplastic rete ridges and the fibrous cyst wall shows an inflammatory infiltrate.

Rarely sebaceous glands in the walls are observed. Mesiodens maxilar content of the cystic lumen is usually thin watery yellow fluid and is occasionally blood tinged.

Histopathogenesis of dentigerous cyst is based on intra-follicular mesiodens maxilar extra-follicular theories. There can be no good reason for the extra-follicular theory of origin of dentigerous cysts as the evidence is that mesiodens maxilar reported as arising in this manner all appear to been envelopmental or follicular odontogenic keratocyst.

The increased hydrostatic pressure exerted by this pooling of fluid causes separation of the crown from the follicle with or without reduced enamel epithelium.
