Lower third molar inclusion associated with paraesthesia: A case report.

Exp Ther Med 2021 Aug 3;22(2):826. Epub 2021 Jun 3.

Department of Periodontology, 'Gr. T. Popa' University of Medicine and Pharmacy, 700020 Iasi, Romania.

When lower third molar inclusion is associated with neurosensorial complications, the treatment of choice is its surgical avulsion. One of these complications, that may be the most alarming during a first medical examination, is hemi-lip paraesthesia, that can appear in the presence of several mandibular lesions. This is a report of a rare clinical case in which paraesthesia was linked to the closeness between the root block of the dental element and the mandibular canal, which houses the neurovascular trunk of the lower mandibular nerve.

Three-Dimensional Culture of Ameloblast-Originated HAT-7 Cells for Functional Modeling of Defective Tooth Enamel Formation.

Front Pharmacol 2021 2;12:682654. Epub 2021 Jun 2.

Department of Oral Biology, Semmelweis University, Budapest, Hungary.

Amelogenesis, the formation of dental enamel, is well understood at the histomorphological level but the underlying molecular mechanisms are poorly characterized. Ameloblasts secrete enamel matrix proteins and Ca, and also regulate extracellular pH as the formation of hydroxyapatite crystals generates large quantities of protons. Genetic or environmental impairment of transport and regulatory processes (e. Read More
