Amelogenesis imperfecta Type 2A3

Hypomaturation Amelogenesis Imperfecta Type 2A3


  • The clinical presentation of AI to some extent depends on the type and in the present study out of the 9 children showing hypoplastic pattern, two children in one family presented with generalized pitted sub type (IA) where teeth had enamel which contrasted[slda.lk]
  • Crowns tend to have a ‘square’ shape with multiple open contacts present. Internal : If enamel is present, it is radiopaque but is the radiopacity of dentin (which is less than normal forming enamel). Other : None.[drgstoothpix.com]
  • The enamel was present only in some areas of the tooth and absent in some. Generalized attrition was observed on the incisal and occlusal surfaces with open contacts.[ijdr.in]
  • Patient had mixed dentition present with deciduous molar root pieces. On examination, brownish discoloration was present in 21, 11, 36, 46 and chalky white discoloration was present in relation with all other teeth.[jnsbm.org]
  • History revealed that the discolouration was present from the time of eruption of the permanent teeth.[omicsonline.org]
  • The hypomaturation type involves an abnormality during the maturation stage of enamel formation, resulting in a weak, creamy-brown opaque enamel that fails prematurely after tooth eruption.[cags.org.ae]
  • In both conditions, the teeth are weak and prone to breakage. Amelogenesis imperfecta is typically diagnosed by a dentist. They will take a family history and perform an oral exam to assess the enamel.[healthline.com]
  • Teeth with defective enamel are weak and easily damaged. In some cases, the genetic cause of amelogenesis imperfecta has not been identified. Researchers are working to find mutations in other genes that are responsible for this disorder.[medigoo.com]
  • The dentist should not rely on retention from bonding alone in those cases with very weak and poorly mineralized enamel. 32. Continued….[slideshare.net]
  • The enamel outer layer of the teeth was weak, porous and discoloured. The teeth appeared yellow due to the thin, irregular enamel overlying the dentin and were pitted and irregular in shape.[oralhealthgroup.com]
  • What type of disorder has a autosomal recessive inheritance pattern and is compoused of marked destruction of the periodontal tissues (periodontoclasia) of both dentitions with premature loss of teeth and hyperkeratosis of the palms and the hands and[quizlet.com]
  • . • Two types – Radicular type (Type I) – Coronal type (Type II) • No correlation with systemic disease – DD-like changes in teeth of patients with • Calcinosis universalis • Rheumatoid arthritis • Tumoral calcinosis • DDII and HOD Dentin Dysplasia Type[docsity.com]
Facial Swelling
  • What type od disorder has a clinical manifestation of a bilateral facial swelling that appears when the patient is between 1 1/2 and 4 years old of age, this change can affect either the mandible or the maxilla, but involvment of the mandible is most[quizlet.com]


Alkaline Phosphatase Increased

  • Amelogenesis Imperfecta Treatment The treatment of this condition depends on the type of AI that one is suffering from. This can range from providing preventive care, such as the use of Sealants and Bonding treatment.[phaa.com]
  • At the moment, there is no standard treatment for amelogenesis imperfecta. Treatment depends on the type and severity of the condition.[healthline.com]
  • treatment, and the possible esthetic results.[ispub.com]
  • The patient was informed of the diagnosis and all treatment plans were discussed with him and his parents. He could not afford prosthetic treatment, including porcelain or ceramic restorations.[hindawi.com]

  • Treatments include preventative measures, various types of crowns, as well as tooth implants or dentures in the most severe cases. Desensitizing toothpaste can prevent painful sensitivity to heat and cold. Good oral hygiene is important.[checkorphan.org]

  • The genetic errors alter proteins’ structure or prevent it from being produced. As a result, teeth enamel are thin, softer, and yellowish or brownish hued. Teeth with abnormal enamel are weaker and susceptible to easy breakage.[healthmomma.com]
