This tool measures how deep the bacterial infection extends down the gum and along the tooth root
The relation between von-Mises stress at the tooth root
(which is very close to the bending tensile and compressive stress values at either side of the tooth) and transmitted torque is shown as graphs in Fig.
Dental implant, is essentially a prototype of a natural tooth root
, made of the most biocompatible metal, titanium, which fuses to the jaw bone (osseointegration) over a period of time.
Replacement resorption leads to fusion of tooth root
with adjacent alveolar bone.
Panoramic radiograph showed impacted right maxillary first molar tooth root
, well-defined cystic lucent lesion between the right mandibular molarteeth, maxillary lateral incisors with Dl, and periapical lesion related with right maxillary lateral incisor (Figure 1).
In this study, we also have shown the difficulty level according to Winter's lines radiographically in which we were able to see the depth of the tooth root
within the bone in the mandible compared to the studies of H Yuasa and Oladijmeji A Akaderi.
These lesions were reported to rarely cause tooth root
Without the incitement of the tooth root
in the attachment, the jawbone loses thickness and disintegrates.
It might have cracked and could well be sore or it may develop a tooth root
abscess if it is not looked at.
Probing pocket depth : the depth to which a dental probe can be passed between the inner margin of the gum and the tooth root
Like dentigerous cysts, they are associated with impacted teeth; however, these tumors usually extend beyond the cemento-enamel junction and include the tooth root
with variable calcification around the embedded tooth (Figure (7).
When root canals are required, dentists remove the nerve and blood vessel within a tooth root
and replace it with a biocompatible filling material.
