Idiopathic osteosclerosis (IO) is known as the region of enlarged bone production in the jaw, and its shape could be round, elliptical, or irregular in shape.[1,2,3]. The evaluation of idiopathic osteosclerosis on panoramic radiographs with an investigation of lesion’s relationship with mandibular canal by. ABSTRACT. Idiopathic osteosclerosis (IO) is described as a localized no expansible radiopacity with unknown etiology. The IO is generally asymptomatic and.

This page was last edited on 1 Novemberat Because IOs are asymptomatic, not expansive, and with limited growth, surgical intervention is not recommended, while radiographic monitoring is suggested 7. This study designed as descriptive study composed of panoramic radiography of patients who referred to the Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology Service of Dentistry Faculty, Tabriz University of Medical.

A review of patients. National Center for Biotechnology Information osteosclerois, U.

Could idiopathic osteosclerosis have correlations with palatally impacted maxillary canines?

But in this study, a decrease of CO in fifth and higher decade of life could be due to loss of tooth decay in older age that in this study edentulous sites were not examined. Focal Sclerosing Osteitis versus Idiopathic Osteosclerosis The inflammatory osteitis is located, restricted to focal areas and less aggressive, which may involve the various components ixiopathic bone.

Halse A, Molven O. Diagnosis was based on bone morphology, no expansion or radiolucent halo, and lack of symptoms. Condensing osteitis may resemble idiopathic osteosclerosis, however, associated teeth are always nonvital in condensing osteitis. J Oral Maxillofac Radiol ;1: Idiopathicc it is rare, if resorption occurs idiopathlc the associated root over time, endodontic treatment or extraction of the affected tooth may be necessary.


Idiopathic Osteosclerosis of the Jaw in a Brazilian Population: a Retrospective Study

The bone cells work in the remodeling to adequate the tissue to functional demands by increasing or decreasing their structures. By analogy, reducing the force corresponds to a discount, or compensation, because the bone deflection does not happen due to the higher density on site.

Oateosclerosis and maxillofacial pathology K00—K06, K11—K14—, — Int J Paediatr Dent. Differences between distributions of lesions were determined by the Chi-squared test when ranked by gender, age, shape, localization, and relation to teeth. In training for the application of orthodontic forces, it is common to have uniformity in the procedures.

Not ostteosclerosis by a radiolucent halo 5 ; 6.

Idiopathic osteosclerosis

To be sure that the clinical diagnosis is correct, periodic follow-up of the lesions is necessary. Focal osteosclerosis and apical periodontal pathoses in “European” and Cape coloured dental outpatients. Skeletal anomalies and normal variants in patients with palatally displaced canines.

Differentiation of IO from root segments should take into consideration extraction history and lines of a residual root fragment, while accurate images of impacted teeth are enough to confirm the difference Schematic drawings of idiopathic osteosclerosis on coronal slices Click here to view. Advancements in the knowledge of induced tooth movement: Separate localization in which the lesions were apical to and clearly separated from the teeth and lamina dura was the second most common localization with The bone in an Idiopathic Osteosclerosis has structure and normal function, the difference is in the higher trabecular density.

Symptomless 8 ; 2. These findings reinforce the recommendation for no intervention. The lesion may even be mistaken for a radiographic projection over bone of a soft tissue calcification.

Later on, the patient develops malignant intestinal tumors that are hard to treat and have a more doubtful prognosis. Data was obtained using the chi-square test, and the results were considered to have a significant difference if the significance level was less than. However, it is unclear whether periodic monitoring is idilpathic or whether they should be considered insignificant findings and simply disregarded. The findings and the literature review corroborate the hypothesis that IO should be considered developmental variation of normal bone that does not require treatment.


The results demonstrated that relative frequency of IO idiopqthic the selected population was 7. Patients with Gardner’s syndrome, colon familial polyposis, and other diseases with the bone metabolic disorder.

Idiopathic Osteosclerosis of the Jaw in a Brazilian Population: a Retrospective Study

However, the associated teeth were healthy or had shallow restorations. For example, in this study radiopaque of osteosclerosi areas was omitted because it is probably formed after tooth extraction.

A comparative study of the prevalence of mandibular osteosclerosis in patients of Asiatic and Caucasian origin. Table 1 — Data from the patients and characteristics of the IOs. None, Conflict of Interest: Conclusions Incidence of IO in the Brazilian sample was 5.

IO was detected in 31 7. Scand J Dent Res ; The patients who had a questionable IO and who met the following criteria were excluded from this study. In this study, all IOs were primarily diagnosed on panoramic radiographs, while few cases needed periapical radiographs to confirm the diagnosis.
