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?
The three stages of Amelogenesis include the inductive, secretory and maturation stages. The inductive stage is one where the shape of the crown takes place. The secretory stage includes the polarization of the columnar cells, which are mineralized by alkaline phosphatase enzymes. Finally, in the maturation stage, the enamel is formed with the help of substances that are transferred to the surface using ameloblasts.
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?
Treatment for Amelogenesis is often successful in protecting the teeth from further deterioration and damage.
