Denticles

Common Name(s)

Denticles

Dentin dysplasia type II is a defect of dentin formation in which the clinical appearance of the secondary teeth is normal, but the primary teeth may appear opalescent, similar to teeth affected by dentinogeneesis imperfecta. The roots of the teeth are of normal shape and morphologic character. The pulp chambers and root canals of the anterior teeth and the premolars are shaped like thistle tubes because of the radicular extension of the pulp chamber. Most teeth show accumulations of pulp stones in these unusually shaped pulp chambers (summary by {5:Kalk et al., 1998}). Also see dentin dysplasia type I (DTDP1; {125400}).
