The alveolar process
is often affected by the tooth loss, by a continuous resorptive process and has been seen to follow a predictable pattern, i.e., the labial aspect of the alveolar crest is the principal site of resorption, which first reduces in width and later in height.
Lastly, the loss of teeth determines the reabsorption of the alveolar process
, which creates distortions in the shape of the arch and the appearance of depth in the palate.
The central type of ossifying fibroma arises from the endosteum or the periodontal ligament adjacent to the root apex and expands from the medullary cavity of the bone, and the peripheral type occurs on the soft tissues overlying the alveolar process
. (1) Ossifying fibroma is a benign neoplasm composed of proliferating fibroblasts with osseous products that include bone and ovoid calcifications; and the lesions are well demarcated from the adjacent bone.
The relationship between the density of the alveolar process
and that of postcranial bone.
Modifying the balance between the resorption and opposition and thereby bypassing the waiting time for the alveolar process
to resorb and move the teeth farther without causing irreversible damage to periodontium has been the focus of many research projects (9,10).
So, the objective of the present study was to evaluate in each side of 121 skulls of adult persons, the relative position of the infra-orbital foramen having like references palpable anatomical points during the anesthetic procedure; as infra-orbital margin, the temporal process of the bone zygomatic, the alveolar process
of the maxillary bone and piriform space.
Retaining teeth permit the stresses of occlusion to be borne partially by the teeth, thus reducing the abuse, which the alveolar process
and the mucoperiosteum undergo when dentures are worn.
The alveolar distraction device has been developed for reconstruction of alveolar process
deformities using the distraction osteogenesis process.
As the occlusal surface wears, compensatory alveolar process
elongates by progressive remodeling of the alveolar bone.
is the specialized bone structure that contains the alveolus or sockets of tooth.
Assessment of the dentate alveolar process
with high resolution computed tomography.
There were no statistically significant differences between right and left sides of the skull for IOF-IOM, IOF-Maxillary alveolar process
at the second premolar and GPC measurements (Table 1).
