regional odontodysplasia


Also found in: Wikipedia.

regional odontodysplasia

A rare localised developmental defect of teeth, which is more common in females, affecting enamel, dentin and pulp of teeth—especially permanent teeth—resulting in an increased risk of caries and periapical inflammation. Most cases are idiopathic; some are associated with syndromes, growth, neurologic and vascular malformations.

Imaging
The teeth in regional odontodysplasia are typically described on plain films as "ghost teeth".

Regional Odontodysplasia Crossing Midline: A Rare Case Report.
Regional odontodysplasia (ROD) is uncommon developmental anomaly, which tends to be localised and involves the ectodermal and mesodermal tooth components [1].
Regional odontodysplasia typically affects one quadrant of the jaw, although it does occasionally cross the midline [7, 13-15]; however there are few cases where this anomaly has affected either the maxillary and mandibular quadrants of the same side [16, 17] or both quadrants of the same jaw [16, 18] and it is extremely rare for the anomaly to affect all four quadrants [13, 19].
The regional odontodysplasia, first reported in 1947, is a nonhereditary and rare dental developmental anomaly of unknown etiology (PORTELA; GONCALVES, 1988; ROSA et al., 2006; SANNOMIYA et al., 2002).
Both dentitions could be affected by the regional odontodysplasia (REDMAN et al., 1979) and it is more frequently found in maxilla than in mandible (PORTELA; GONCALVES, 1988), and on the anterior teeth (PANDIS et al., 1991; ZEGARELLI et al., 1963).
