Some oro-dental findings, such as congenitally missing teeth, amelogenesis
imperfecta or cleft of the lip and palate, may be isolated defects.
The normal process of amelogenesis in tooth development involves the formation of normal enamel and occurs in three stages: the formative, calcification, and maturation stages.
Amelogenesis imperfecta, dentinogenesis imperfecta and dentin dysplasia revisited: problems in classification.
Exclusion of candidate genes in two families with autosomal dominant hypocalcified amelogenesis
Failure of eruption of a molar or an incisor Other changes in dental enamel such as amelogenesis
imperfecta, hypoplasia, diffuse opacities, white spot lesions, tetracycline staining, erosion, flourosis, white cuspal and marginal ridges should be excluded.
Enamel formation as a whole takes approximately one thousand days [Reid and Dean, 2006] and two thirds of this time is devoted to the maturation stage of amelogenesis
white spot lesions, white cuspal ridges or a patchy appearance of amelogenesis
imperfecta or fluorosis.
The effects of acid-etching on enamel from different clinical variants of amelogenesis
imperfecta: an SEM study.
Genetic disturbances of dental development, dysplasia of enamel and/or dentine such as amelogenesis
and dentinogenesis imperfecta are well known.
The duration of fluoride exposure during the amelogenesis
, rather than specific risk periods would seem to explain the development of dental fluorosis in the maxillary central incisors".
