Analysis of Radicular Dental Calcifications According to the Shape

Pavlina Aleksova [14]


Abstract: Introduction Dental calcifications, known as denticles, are mineral deposits in the coronal and radicular pulp tissue. They are a sort of discrete calcification bodies with definite but very different location, prevalence and histology. The intention of the study is to present morphology of dental calcifications according to the shape. Materials and Methods The present study was analyzed 60 extirpated pulps of teeth with endodontic diagnosis pulpitis chronic, and 40 pulps of extracted teeth, with the method of light microscopy, and by using standard differential histochemical stain. Results According to shape, 2 groups are identified. The first group consists of calcifications of oval shape, which have a degree of bending similar to circle or spherical objects, these calcifications are nodular. The second group of calcifications consists of calcifications which are of irregular shape, corner-like, except the bigger ones, which are relatively elongated. Conclusion With this study are confirm that regarding the shape, radicular calcifications can be oval or spherical, and irregular shape.
