It is the formation of enamel on teeth and begins when the crown is forming during the bell stage of tooth development, after dentinogenesis, which is the formation of dentin. It has 3 stages. The first is known as the inductive stage, the second is secretory stage and the third is maturation stage. It is caused by insufficient mineralization of the tooth.
HOW IS AMELOGENESIS DIAGNOSED?
During the enamel matrix formation, ameloblasts start getting secreted after dentin has been laid down. This is followed by the formation of the dentinoenamel membrane. This membrane prevents the contact between enamel rods and dentin. In the second stage, which is mineralization, partial mineralization of the matrix occurs, accounting for 25-30% of the total mineral content. The second stage is complete mineralization.
HOW IS AMELOGENESIS TREATED?
Amole genesis can be managed by extensive intervention both preventively and restoratively. A continued treatment and care throughout childhood and adulthood can help avoid the problem situation. During infancy the primary dentition can be protected by use of metal crowns on posterior teeth. Long term care include crowns, adhesives or plastic restorations.
DID YOU KNOW?
The bell stage of tooth development is known for histo-differentiation and morpho-differentiation.
