Enamel hypoplasias form whenever amelogenesis is disrupted and then resumed, representing acute periods of stress during early childhood when the teeth are forming (Armelagos et al.
Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a hereditary disorder that disrupts the formation of dental enamel in the primary and permanent dentition in the absence of systemic manifestations.
12) El proceso de formacion del esmalte se denomina en conjunto amelogenesis, mientras que el proceso de mineralizacion como tal, que se da entre iones y proteinas secretadas por las celulas, se denomina biomineralizacion.

Among the topics are the slim concept for ideal peri-implant soft tissues, the biodigital alveolar model: an alternative for a predictable esthetic outcome with ultra-thin porcelain veneers, the concept of an angulated screw channel system, balancing surgical and prosthetic procedures to restore the severely resorbed esthetic zone, and CAD/CAM-guided patterns for full-mouth reconstruction using lithium disilicate pressed ceramics in a patient with amelogenesis imperfecta.
This condition is due to disrupted ameloblastic function during the transitional and maturational stages of amelogenesis.
De alli que durante la amelogenesis los nudos de esmalte se eleven mientras se conectan entre si mediante crestas--producto de las tensiones por el crecimiento desigual--y dejen entre las cuspides una serie de depresiones lineales y fosomorfas--como consecuencia del cese de actividad de los ameloblastos--, lo que da como resultado la conformacion del patron de cuspides y surcos de los dientes posteriores temporales y permanentes.
Esta variante se caracteriza por la presencia de celulas granulares dentro del islote ameloblastico y corresponden a celulas epiteliales transformadas con un citoplasma amplio, ocupado por granulos que se tinen intensamente con la eosina y que se describen normalmente durante el proceso de amelogenesis (figura 1).

First theory according to Moss, states that, greater thickness of enamel in males due to long period of amelogenesis and slower rate of maturation of teeth than in females, whereas second theory states that, Y chromosomes cause a slow maturation rate of enamel in males.
