bone, bony sockets, or crypts for teeth placement in the maxillae and the mandibular bone
before or in front of, front area of the mouth, from canine (cuspid) to canine (cuspid)"
the root end, the tip end of a tooth
relative to the root tip end of tooth, apex or root
curved-like or bow-like outline, half of the mouth, either maxillary or mandibular
enamel-forming cells, encourages cell growth to form the enamel covering tissue of the tooth
process of forming tooth enamel
absence of teeth, partial or total lack of teeth
opposing teeth, tooth that counteracts, occludes, or contacts with another tooth in the opposing arch.
addition of parts, fourth stage of development, mineral salts, and organic matter are set down and in place for tissues and tooth formation.
abrasion or chafing, last stage of development, happens as teeth interact with each other via mastication and speech.
root to crown, long
premolars, mandibular teeth
Branching into two parts, mandibular molars have two roots
check side/surface, posterior tooth surface toward the cheeks
deposit of lime salts, fifth stage of development, the hardening and setting of tooth tissues.
Cementum-forming cells, encourages cell growth to form the root-covering cementum tissue.
cells that destroy tooth cementum.
tissue covering of tooth root
the place where the enamel of the crown meets the cementum of the root.
the top part of the tooth containing the pulp chamber, dentin, and enamel covering.
a point of the crown of a tooth, elevation, or mound on the biting surface of the crown
canines, single-rooted anterior teeth at the corner of the mouth, longest tooth, splits anterior from posterior.
falling off, first set of teeth
Dens in dente
tooth in tooth, a tooth enfolds on itself to form a small cavity that holds a hard structure or mass
membrane band containing organs of future teeth, develops in the epithelium
the main tissue of tooth surrounding the pulp
inadequate dentin formation, a genetic disorder characterized by weakened or gray-colored teeth or shell teeth resulting from poor formation
acquiring different functions from the original
to the distant, away, side surface of a tooth farthest from the midline of the face
a high place, projection, or prominence.
a hard tooth covering
mucous tissue covering and connective tissue layer
breaking out, six stage of development. Cutting of the teeth, It occurs when the tooth moves toward the oral cavity and enters through the tissues.
surface of all teeth toward the cheek and/or the lips
fiber-forming germ cells, encourages cell growth to form the periodontal ligaments.
a groove or natural depression, slit, or break;
reaction to overfluoridation, mottled enamel
an opening or hole in the bone for nerve and vessel passage
a shallow, rounded, irregular depression or concavity on the lingual surface of anterior teeth and on the occlusal surfaces of posterior teeth.
Fork or branch off, the place where tooth roots branch apart
a shallow concave groove located on either the crown or the root, developmental depression.
joining together, union of tooth buds resulting in large crown or root.
development of germ cells, single tooth germ separating to form two crowns on a single root
mouth tissue, mucous tissue surrounding the teeth, gives protection.
granular tumor or growth, a growth or tumor usually found in the root area.
a rut, furrow, or channel. 2 types
teeth of various shapes
branch into different tissues
overgrowth of cementum tissue, an anomaly resulting in a thickening of cementum, result of stress.
underbonding or incomplete calcification, lack of hardening of tooth tissue resulting in weak, susceptible teeth.
underdevelopment of tissue.
in the uterus
to cut, cutting edge of anterior teeth (centrals, laterals, and cuspids/canines)
cutters, single-rooted anterior teeth with a sharp cutting edge.
beginning, bud stage of development
between two teeth
lip surface, anterior tooth surface toward the lips
small open space, tiny cavities that may contain irregular cementum-forming cells
tongue, the surface of all teeth toward the tongue.
a well-defined part of an organ that develops into a tooth formation, a developing cusp that eventually unites with other lobes to form a complete tooth.
abnormally large teeth
lower tooth area; moves up and down to meet the maxillary teeth.
the portion that is unattached to underlying tissues and helps to form the sides of the gingival crevice, free margin gingiva.
upper tooth area; normally the maxilla slightly overlaps the mandible.
in the middle, side surface of a tooth closest to the mid- line (middle) of the face.
unusually small teeth
imaginary vertical line bisecting the head at the middle; determines the right and left sides.
grinding tooth, most posterior teeth
change into different shape
study of tooth form and shape
combination of mucous and gingival tissue
to grind, meet, grinding or chewing surface of all posterior teeth (premolars/bicuspids, and molars)
dentin forming cells, encourages cell growth to form the dentin, the bulk of the tooth
cells that bring about absorption of primary tooth roots.
tooth production, to the formation and the origin of the tooth.
the study of teeth
Bone-forming germ cells, encourages cell growth to form alveolar bone and the alveolar plate
cells that destroy or cause absorption of bone tissue
the part of the marginal gingiva that occupies the interproximal spaces, triangular and filling the tooth embrasure area
around tooth, membrane and fibers that anchor the tooth in the alveolar socket.
tissues surrounding teeth, 4 tissues
