Diseases of the teeth (dentistry)

Dystopic tooth

Among the numerous dental problems, there is one more - a dystopic tooth, that is, located incorrectly (from the Greek dystopia - incorrect location or lack of space) or erupted in the wrong place.

Erosion of tooth enamel

One of the most common non-carious dental lesions - tooth enamel erosion - is the gradual and sustained destruction of the outer protective shell of the tooth.

Cervical tooth decay

Pre-gingival or cervical caries of teeth is diagnosed when the destruction of hard dental tissues affects a part of the tooth near the neck - a slightly narrowed transition of the dental crown to the root, that is, near the very edge of the gum, and often even under it.

Distal bite in children and adults

Incorrect positioning of the upper and lower jaws with impaired closure of the dentition is a common orthodontic problem, and the most common type of pathological occlusion is the distal occlusion.

Mesial bite

Unpleasant appearance and improper facial geometry can cause many psycho-emotional problems. In this article we will talk about the features of the mesial bite.

Macroglossia in children and adults

A disproportionately large or abnormally wide tongue - macroglossia, as a rule, occurs in children and is considered a fairly rare anomaly. Macroglossia usually means prolonged painless enlargement of the tongue.

Deep bite in adults and children

A deep bite associated with improper closing of the teeth can adversely affect the function of chewing, speech, lead to increased abrasion of the enamel coating, etc. With some degrees of such a violation, treatment should be mandatory.


Pericoronitis - inflammation and infection of the soft tissues around a partially cut tooth - is often associated with affected third permanent molars.

Hairy Leukoplakia of the oral cavity and tongue

Hairy leukoplakia is in no way associated with hair growth on the surface of the skin, but is a disease of the mucous membranes in which the pathological areas are covered with filiform white villi, noticeable only after histological examination.

Treatment of deep caries of teeth: basic methods

Deep caries does not appear suddenly, but is the result of ignoring the destruction of the tooth, starting with slightly visible changes in the enamel, the formation of a hollow, and its deepening into hard layers - dentin.
