Developmental disturbances of teeth are anomalies of position or eruption path. Form, shape and number of teeth are other tooth disturbances. It has been suggested that such developmental anomalies are all micro symptoms of an inheritable developmental disturbance due to a general disturbance of the developmental tooth structures Pfeiffer, ; Hoffmeister, Eruption disturbance, such as impacted maxillary canines, is associated with ectopic eruption of maxillary first permanent molars, infraocclusion of primary molars, peg-shaped or congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisors and agenesis of mandibular second premolars Bjerklin et al. This means that ectopic eruption of maxillary first permanent molars, diagnosed at 6 to 7 years of age, may be a marker for the subsequent appearance of dental anomalies.

Angle Orthod 1 July ; 79 4 : — Objective: To test the hypotheses that 1 the distal angulation of unerupted mandibular premolar MnP2 is significantly greater in children with palatally displaced canines PDC than in those in a control sample; and 2 delayed tooth formation is significantly more frequent in children with both malposed MnP2 and PDC than in children with PDC only.
Materials and Methods: We examined retrospectively panoramic radiographs from 43 patients with PDC who had no previous orthodontics. A control sample consisted of age- and sex-matched patients.
The distal angle formed between the long axis of MnP2 and the tangent to the inferior border was measured. Dental age was evaluated using the Koch classification. Results: A significant difference was observed between the mean inclination of the right side MnP2 in the PDC group The same evaluation was carried out for the left side, with similar results. The average dental age was found to be delayed in patients who showed both abnormalities malposed MnP2 and PDC compared with patients who showed the PDC anomaly only.
Conclusion: Both hypotheses are retained. Statistically, PDC and MnP2 malposition are significantly associated suggesting a common genetic etiology, despite taking place on opposite jaws. While the presence of PDC or MnP2 anomaly has been associated with a delay in tooth formation, we find the presence of both anomalies to show a more profound delay. Our findings suggest a delay in tooth formation as a possible common genetic mechanism for these 2 malposition anomalies.
Orthodontists treat malposed teeth. As orthodontists, we are interested in knowing what causes teeth to assume abnormal positions during their development. To gain this knowledge, we study malposition anomalies.
In a recent such study, it was discovered that exaggerated distoangular malposition of the unerupted mandibular second premolar MnP2 was associated with agenesis of its antimere. A genetic basis of PDC is widely acknowledged. Two samples, an experimental group and a control group, were selected from the pretreatment records of patients. The experimental sample consisted of 43 patients 15 males and 28 females. Age ranged from 8 to 14 years mean, Criteria for inclusion in this sample included 1 unilateral or bilateral PDC, 2 no previous orthodontic treatment, 3 mandibular deciduous second molars present, and 4 development of the MnP2 tooth bud in stages D to G of tooth formation, according to the classification of Koch et al.
The control sample consisted of 43 patients with normally erupting canines and was collected from the same orthodontic patient pool to match age rounded to half year and sex in the study group. We developed a unique method by which to measure the inclination of the MnP2. The long axis of the MnP2 was determined as the line connecting the uppermost point of the pulp with the point bisecting the distance between the mesial and distal points of the apex.
A protractor was used to measure the distal angle formed between the long axis of the MnP2 and the line drawn tangent to the inferior border of the mandible. Figure 1 shows a typical drawing with assigned lines and the resulting angle.
All tracings were made independently by a single examiner using 0. The distal angle between the long axis of the mandibular second premolar and the tangent to the lower border of the mandible defined on a typical drawing of the relevant part of an orthopantomogram. Descriptive statistics, including mean, standard deviation, and range, were calculated for the unerupted MnP2 angles measured in the experimental and the control groups.
The significance of the differences between compared means was evaluated using the Student t -test for paired samples. Some patients had unerupted MnP2 on both sides. However, because one may not include more than 1 data point per patient in the same statistics, the question of which side to choose arises, as well as whether this arbitrary choice influences the result and how.
To avoid any possible inconsistency while showing all the data, we collected 2 independent sets of data: one for all the right sides of the sample group, and another for the left sides of the same group, each matched with the same side in the control sample.
To quantify the error of the method, a second set of data was traced and measured 1 month later by the same examiner.
Standard deviations calculated for 2 repeated measurements of 2 tracings of 6 different panoramic roentgenograms were used as intraexaminer error.
This procedural error was found to be 1. To test the second hypothesis, we had to define the developmental stage of MnP2 and single out patients with malposed MnP2.
The developmental stage of MnP2 was evaluated using the Koch classification. This value is about the mean angle of malposed MnP2, as observed in previous studies. Table 1 shows descriptive statistics of the right-side MnP2 in the experimental group and the same side in the age- and sex-matched paired control group. The mean distal inclination of the MnP2 in the right side of the experimental sample was The mean increase of Table 2 shows the descriptive statistics of the left-side MnP2 in the experimental group and the same side in the age- and sex-matched paired control group.
The mean distal inclination of the MnP2 in the left side of the experimental sample was The mean increase of 7. Thus, the first hypothesis, that the distal angulation of the MnP2 is significantly greater in children with PDC than in age- and sex-matched controls, is retained. The difference between sides within the PDC sample calls for an intrapatient comparison to test whether this difference is of significance. Using a paired t -test, we found no significant difference between the right side and the left side.
Pearson correlation was found to be 0. These results show that the average dental age is delayed in patients who show both abnormalities malposed MnP2 and PDC compared with patients who show PDC anomaly but with normal inclination of MnP2.
Our second hypothesis that delayed tooth formation is a significantly more frequent finding in children with both malposed MnP2 and PDC is thus retained. This study was designed to test the null hypothesis that angular malposition of unerupted MnP2 is not directly associated with PDC. The results suggest a statistically significant association between these 2 conditions. The palatally displaced canine is a maxillary dental anomaly, whereas MnP2 is a mandibular anomaly. Hence common mechanical cause is unlikely.
The absence of a shared mechanical cause suggests association through a common genetic disorder. The association of MSX1 with agenesis 17 and with clefting 18 has been established in genetic linkage analyses. Both agenesis and clefting have been shown to be associated with the MnP2 malposition anomaly. It is likely that the MnP2 anomaly may appear in combination with any other of these inter-associated anomalies eg, infraocclusion, mesially ectopic maxillary first molar, tooth transposition, tooth rotation, tooth size reduction, peg-shaped maxillary lateral incisor , perhaps because all of these anomalies are caused by the same mechanism.
What could be this mechanism? Delayed tooth formation was reported in children with clefting, 19 with PDC, 11 , 12 and with malposition of MnP2. If this is correct, one should expect a longer delay to increase the likelihood of anomalies and thereby the likelihood that more than 1 anomaly will be observed in the same patient.
This means that children who show more than 1 anomaly should also show a greater delay in tooth formation. PDC and MnP2 malposition anomalies are significantly statistically associated, despite their taking place on opposite jaws, suggesting a common genetic etiology.
Although the presence of PDC or MnP2 anomaly has been associated with a delay in tooth formation, we find the presence of both anomalies to show a more profound delay. These findings suggest a delay in tooth formation as a possible common genetic mechanism for these 2 malposition anomalies.

The ABCs of veterinary dentistry: M is for malposition and malocclusion
Introduction: In the recent past there has been an increase in the number of adults seeking orthodontic treatment therefore special attention to periodontal status of these patients needs more careful evaluation. Periodontal considerations in adult orthodontic treatment are increasingly important as patients become older. The aim of the study was to assess the interrelationship between the severity of malposition of frontal teeth with periodontal health considering to age in Latvian population. Methods: The data were analyzed from a detailed crossectional study in Latvian population. For the assessment of periodontal health CPI scores was analyzed for upper frontal sextant.
Malposition of Teeth and Jaws in Patients With Congenital Superior Oblique Palsy
Malposition of teeth refers to improper positioning of teeth in the alveolar process of the maxilla or the mandible, with respect to other teeth as well as the overall positioning of the teeth in the jaw bone. Most of us do not have perfectly straight teeth or ideal occlusion bite. Crowding of teeth is very common in the general population. Malposition of teeth refers to a condition where teeth have erupted or shifted into a position that is not their ideal in the dental arch with respect to other teeth, and the upper and lower jaws.
Malposition of single teeth
