Although condensing osteitis also develops in the periapical areas, it is a response to a low-grade inflammatory stimulus, such as deep caries, large restoration, or pulpitis, and the associated teeth are usually non-vital or show considerable inflamed pulps.

No correlation was observed between palatally impacted maxillary canines and idiopathic osteosclerosis. Thus, the trabeculae may be bigger or smaller, narrower or wider; thus, the cortical may increase or decrease its thickness according to the functional demands required Figs 1 and 2.

The Experimental Group EG consisted of 54 3.

Since IO can be found near root apices 6 and tend to be associated with changes in the lamina dura, Petrikowski et al. They have insignificant or even no deflection, thus it may increase the risk of root resorption, including when teeth anchorage is performed in these structures. IO was observed to occur more frequently in females than in males and to be most common among individuals aged Halse A, Molven O.

The cases reported in this study showed that IOs did not cause any harm to the patients, and no specific etiology was associated with the lesions. IO in the maxilla female, 40 years ; Osteoscleroiss Radiographs of IOs and of root segments.
