As the lesion matures, the differential diagnosis should include osteoblastoma, odontoma, hypercementosis, cemental dysplasia, and condensing osteitis as is discussed below:
Abnormal tooth eruption, morbid root and coronal resorption, congenitally missing teeth, malocclusion, anterior open bites, pulpal calcification, dentin dysplasia, hypercementosis, root malformation, and taurodontism have been commonly seen.
Teeth with pulp stones, calcified pulp spaces and root canals, and hypercementosis were excluded.
In addition, dental abnormalities such as enamel hypoplasia, obliteration of pulp chambers, and hypercementosis can be seen [10].
Early-stage lesions generally appear more radiolucent and should be differentiated from the periapical inflammatory lesions like focal sclerosing osteotitis and focal osteomyelitis and in mature stage this lesion may be difficult to distinguish from hypercementosis, cementoossifying fibroma, osteoma, benign osteoblastoma, odontomas and calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumors, and so forth.
Hypercementosis is clinically asymptomatic in which a uniform width of radiolucent zone without any cortical bone expansion or perforation is evident radiographically.
The purpose of this article was to report the successful nonsurgical endodontic management of mandibular first premolar with unusual anatomy and hypercementosis that was not reported elsewhere before and the challenges that were faced while determining the apical stop and preparation of apical part of the canal.
Interestingly unique pattern of the canal system was found on periapical radiographs which resembled conguration of Vertucci type V and hypercementosis at the apex of the tooth.
One of the molars show evidence of hypercementosis and the teeth were badly worn.
Conclusions: Results supported our hypothesis that ENPP1 KO cementum would resemble ANK KO hypercementosis. Both factors are implicated to be critical in periodontal development/maintenance.
Additional analysis of the individuals from Pierhead and Fontabelle revealed that their diet and oral hygiene practices may have made them more susceptible to other forms of dental disease such as carious lesions, periodontitis, and hypercementosis. In addition, archaeological evidence and physical modifications in the dentition suggest some similarities in life style behaviors such as tobacco smoking through pipes between the urban and rural enslaved.
Acquired concrescence usually results from chronic inflammation that leads to hypercementosis.
