dens in dente

dens in den'te

a developmental disturbance in tooth formation resulting from invagination of the epithelium associated with crown development into the area destined to become pulp space; after calcification there is an invagination of enamel and dentin into the pulp space, giving the radiographic appearance of a "tooth within a tooth."
Synonym(s): dens invaginatus

dens in dente

[den′tə]
an anomaly of the teeth, found chiefly in the maxillary lateral incisors and characterized by invagination of the enamel. The condition causes a radiographic image suggestive of a tooth within a tooth. Also called dens invaginatus, gestant odontoma.

Dens in dente
A maldeveloped tooth with an invaginated outer enamel epithelium of the odontogenic germ layer, which in its extreme form is grossly and radiologically malformed, appearing as a tooth in a tooth. In its mildest form, dens in dente occurs in 5% of the population

Since then it has been a preferred term, although dens in dente is a more commonly used term Bhatt and Dholakia have described a radicular variety of double DI.
El dens in dente tambien se denomina diente invaginado, odontoma invaginado, odontoma compuesto retardado, inclusion dental o dentoid in dente (1).
Un dens in dente se caracteriza clinicamente por presentar la corona con leves deformaciones, aunque no siempre llega a ser visible, por lo que la mayoria de los casos de invaginacion se detectan mediante estudios de imagenologia (3,6) i La necrosis pulpar temprana puede presentarse incluso anos despues de que el diente ha erupcionado o antes del cierre apical (4).
La invaginacion llegaba hasta el tercio apical, por lo que se accedio con una fresa redonda # 4 para ubicar e l conducto principal y posteriormente explorar con el instrumento DG16, a fin de localizar dos conductos accesorios del dens in dente.
De acuerdo con el tipo de invaginacion (5,10) y con la clasificacion de Oelhers (7), el presente caso corresponde a un dens in dente tipo 3, en el cual la invaginacion penetra a traves de la raiz.
13 Of the various terms 'dens invaginatus' would appear to be the most appropriate as it reflects the infolding of the outer portion (enamel) into the inner portion (dentin) with the formation of a pocket and dead space Synonyms for this malformation are: Dens in dente, invaginated odontome, dilated gestant odontome, dilated composite odontome, tooth inclusion and dens telescope.
Dens in dente es una malformacion que se clasifica entre las anomalias de forma segun el sistema de clasificacion propuesto por Stewart y Prescott.
De acuerdo con Barberia y Boj el dens in dente se puede clasificar segun la morfologia de invaginacion en dos tipos:
Dens in dente en incisivos centrales superiores que no sobrepasa la corona, con comunicacion al exterior.
2, 3) En la denticion primaria y permanente permite ver: anomalias de numero (hipodoncias) (1, 4, 5) (hiperodoncias), (6, 7) de tamano (macrodoncias, microdoncias), de forma (dientes conicos, espolones, perlas del esmalte, dens in dente, taurodontismo, fusion, geminacion), de erupcion (transposiciones, dientes retenidos), anomalias del desarrollo, de origen genetico y ambiental (sindromes), (8) asi como la presencia de cambios en la radiodensidad consistente en imagenes radiolucidas compatibles con quistes e imagenes radiopacas oseas compatibles con tumores.
Para los dientes se definio anomalia dental como variaciones en la forma, tamano, estructura, posicion, erupcion, numero y morfologia, (1, 5, 16, 23, 24) detectables radiograficamente nombrados con los terminos: dens in dente, agenesias, taurodontismo, macrodoncias, dientes en forma conica, supernumerarios, microdoncias, transposiciones, fusiones, mesiodens, dientes retenidos, geminaciones, espolones de esmalte y perlas de esmalte.
Para cuantificar las anomalias se establecio que la presencia de una categoria de trastorno representaba una anomalia, ejemplo si un paciente presenta al mismo tiempo dens in dente, agenesias y taurodontismo se considero que habia tres anomalias presentes.
