    Awareness of erosive tooth wear (ETW) by the public is still low and most dental
    practitioners overlooked the very early stages dismissing minor tooth surface loss of erosive tooth
    wear. Therefore, this study aimed to assess knowledge of diagnosis and treatment strategies of
    ETW among private dental practitioners (PDP) in Kuantan. (Copied from article).

    The objectives of this study were to measure the Furcation Entrance Dimensions of first and second permanent molars in Malaysian samples and to compare the Furcation Entrance Dimensions with the blade widths of periodontal Gracey’s curette used for root surface instrumentation. A total of 199 extracted permanent teeth were measured, which comprised of 51 mandibular first molars, 51 mandibular second molars, 45 maxillary first molars and 52 maxillary second molars. Furcation Entrance Dimension was measured using calibrated test gauges. Results showed 51.91% of Furcation Entrance Dimension was

    Supernumerarypremolars have been reported to occur in 0.29% of the general populationand to represent about 9.1% of all supernumerary teeth. Most of the supernumerary teeth reported in the literature were detected by radiographsas most of them were unerupted or impacted.Asearch of the literature revealed not many cases of fully erupted and well aligned supernumerary premolars being reported. A case of a unilateral transposed supernumery premolarthat had erupted into alignment is presented here. The remarkable featureof this case is that the supernumery premolar is transposed between the first and second permanent maxillary molars. The etiology of supernumeraryteeth is also reviewed.

    Delayed tooth eruption (DTE) is the emergence of a tooth into oral cavity that
    deviates from norms established for different races, ethnics and sexes, which commonly caused
    either by local or systemic conditions. (Copied from article).

    A case of extreme distal migration of the left maxillary canine is reported. The canine had erupted buccal to the contact area between the left second premolar and first molar. Past reports of similar ectopia are reviewed.

    OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to determine the changes in cell density and morphology of selected cells of the ageing human dental pulp.

    BACKGROUND: Changes in cell density and morphology of dental pulp cells over time may affect their capability to respond to tooth injury.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred thirty-one extracted teeth were obtained from individuals between the ages of 6 and 80 years. The apical 1/3 of the root region was removed from all teeth prior to routine processing for producing histological slides. The histology slides were used to study the changes in cell density and morphology of selected pulp cells; odontoblasts, subodontoblasts and fibroblasts in the crown and root regions of the dental pulp. Student's t-test and one-way anova were used for statistical analyses.

    RESULTS: In all age groups, the cell density for all types of cells was found to be higher in the crown than in the root (p tooth injury.

    Supernumerary tooth (ST) is a developmental anomaly and has been argued to arise from multiple etiologies. These teeth may remain embedded in the alveolar bone or can erupt into the oral cavity. When it remains embedded, it may cause disturbance to the developing teeth. The erupted supernumerary tooth might cause aesthetic and/or functional problems especially if it is situated in the maxillary anterior region. A case of supernumerary teeth is presented where the teeth have been left in place and which later gave rise to some problems. The patient had history of trauma and requested orthodontic treatment for the misalignment of his anterior teeth. The treatment options are further discussed.

    Delayed eruption of permanent upper incisors is a cause for concern to patients. It causes aesthetic, function and speech problems. This case report describes a technique of managing impacted dilacerated maxillary central incisors using removable appliances over one and a half year. It is a simple, operator- friendly and economical treatment option with favorable result.

    Transposition is a rare dental anomaly in positional interchange between two
    adjacent teeth. Studies indicated that tooth transpositions are more frequent unilateral than
    bilateral (12:1). It is a very rare phenomenon when the anomaly is bilateral and affects same teeth
    on both sides. (Copied from article).

    The presence of supernumerary teeth in the premaxillary region may cause a variety of pathological effects. This study was carried out to determine the various aspects of supernumerary teeth in the premaxillary region, particularly the effects of the supernumerary teeth on the permanent incisors and surrounding tissues. Approximately 20 percent of the patients (n = 49) with supernumerary teeth did not present with any abnormality. A high proportion of patients (37.9 percent) had delayed or failure of eruption of permanent teeth and 24.1 percent had rotation or displacement of permanent teeth. Other effects observed were median diastema and cystic changes around the unerupted supernumerary tooth. The high proportion of pathological effects seen showed that early diagnosis of the anomaly is important to intercept damage to the adjacent normal teeth and surrounding tissues. However, no cases of root resorption of the permanent teeth due to the presence of supernumeraries were observed.

    This clinical case report describes an aspect of restorative management of worn teeth. It illustrates the use of diagnostic overlay removable partial denture or DORPD, which has the same function as occlusal splint but with advantages of providing immediate aesthetic improvement and function.

    The relationship of the main foramen to the anatomic root apex has been the subject of several studies. Although they are anatomically close, they rarely coincide, and their distance can vary according to age or tooth type, ranging from 0.2 to 3.0 mm. The aim of this short communication was to evaluate the distance between the main foramen of independent middle mesial canals (MMCs) and the anatomical mesial root apex of mandibular first molars using the micro-computed tomography. Twenty-five mandibular first molars with MMCs were scanned (resolution of 9.9 µm), and the distance from its main foramen to the anatomical apex was evaluated. Overall, the distance ranged from 0.2 to 2.4 mm; however, in 3 specimens the distance was greater than 3 mm. This report demonstrates that the exit of the main foramen of the MMC varies considerably and could approach a substantial distance from the anatomical apex greater than previously reported in the literature.

    Non-syndromic tooth agenesis defined as developmental absence of more than one
    tooth that appears as independent congenital oral trait. Its prevalence, pattern and distribution
    rates vary by populations. The aim of this study was to identify the pattern and distribution of
    tooth agenesis in permanent dentition among IIUM dental polyclinic patients. (Copied from article).
