Endodontic management of a fused mandibular third molar and distomolar: A case report.
ST can be classified on the basis of the morphology (conical, tuberculate, supplemental, and odontomes), location (mesiodens, paramolar, distomolar, and parapremolar), position (buccal, palatal, and transverse), and orientation (vertical or normal, inverted, transverse, or horizontal).
A study conducted in Turkish population has revealed that the most common supernumerary tooth was mesiodens, followed by premolar, lateral, distomolar, paramolar and canine (9).
Ademas, se determino la angulacion del canino a la linea media, el nivel de erupcion con respecto a la raiz del incisivo cercano clasificandolo en estadio 1, 2, 3, 4 y 5 y la altura vertical con respecto a los incisivos centralesl Los dientes supernumerarios se clasificaron segun su ubicacion en mesiodens, paramolar, distomolar y parapremolar, y segun el numero de dientes presentes, en unicos, multiples, unilaterales y bilaterales (13,14).
When classified by po- sition a supernumerary tooth may be referred to as a mesiodens a paramolar or a distomolar.
Table 1 Classification Based On Form Classification Based On Position Conical Mesiodens Tuberculate Paramolar Supplemental Distomolar Odontome Parapremolar
Mesiodens were present in two patients (0.87%) Para molars in six patients (2.6%) and distomolar was present in only one patient (0.43%).
The supernumerary teeth that occur between or just posterior to the central incisors are referred to as mesiodens; those in molar area are called paramolar teeth; and more specifically, those that erupt distally to the third molar are distomolar teeth.6
In order of decreasing frequency, some authors consider that mesiodens are followed by distomolars [25, 26], but others [21, 23] found that mesiodens are followed by lateral incisors and premolars.
Supernumerary teeth are common in the maxillary anterior area (mesiodens) and the maxillary molar area (distomolars or fourth molars).
