Ontogenesis of the alveolar walls of the tooth germ according to orthopantomography
Objective: to identify changes of the configuration and size of the walls of the alveolar stages of ontogenesis. Materials and Methods. Orthopantomograms studied 196 children aged 5 to 12 years. We used visual and morphometric methods. Results. The data on the three diameters of the dental alveoli (proximal, middle and distal) has been presented, under which subsequently the main stages of age transformation have been highlighted. Conclusion. Transformation of the alveolar walls radiologically determined and its advancing character in relation to the macroprocesses in the germ tooth have made it possible to consider alveolus as one of the leading biological tools of odontogenesis.
