Ameloblastoma is a locally invasive odontogenic tumour arising from the remnants of dental organ and dental lamina and is a highly destructive benign tumour of odontogenic origin.
Various genetic factors, an exchange in the position of the forming dental lamina along with trauma to the deciduous tooth with the permanent incisor root dilaceration, were suggested as reasons for transposition.
Remnants of dental lamina could be the basis from which BOC arises because of histologic similarities between dental lamina and the cyst wall, which is characterized by the presence of glycogen rich clear cells that are found both in dental lamina and in the cyst wall (4).
Odontoma is a tumor composed of osseous tissue and develops from budding of extra-odontogenic epithelial cells from dental lamina.
Background and Objectives: Keratocystic odontogenic tumor (KCOT) is a fairly common oral and maxillofacial lesion that is derived from remnants of the dental lamina.
Another hypothesis favors the origin of the tumor cells from the cells of the dental lamina found in the initial stage of odontogenesis and the remnants of the dental lamina.
The suggested theories include dichotomy of bud teeth, hyperactivity of the dental lamina (5) and a combination of genetic and environmental factors; (1, 6) it can occur as single, multiple, unilateral or bilateral forms and in association with syndromes, such as Down syndrome or Cleidocranial dysplasia.
The aetiology behind agenesis of one or more molars is unknown, but several mechanisms have been suggested like a physical disruption of dental lamina in the developmental stage, limitation of space, an inherent defect of dental lamina and failure of induction of the underlying mesenchyme.
This lesion turned out to be an odontogenic keratocyst arising from the cell rests of the dental lamina.
These tumors are thought to arise from the dental lamina.
Whereas most vertebrates can replace teeth throughout their lives, human teeth are naturally replaced only once, despite the lingering presence of a band of epithelial tissue called the dental lamina, which is crucial to tooth development.
