Condensing osteitis is the clinical designation for a tooth with chronic apical bone exposed to the oral cavity with secondary infection from normal oral flora. Condensing osteitis is defined as pathologic growth of maxillomandibular bones the impaired bone rearrangement in response to mild infection of dental pulp. bMareşal Çakmak Hospital, Oral Health Center, Erzurum, Turkey.

You can help by adding to it. The location of the lesion is classified as mandibular or maxillary firstly, then further by region of the jaw: The associated teeth are usually asymptomatic. No change conddnsing size or any malignant potential.

Dense Bone Islands are synonymous with enostoses or idiopathic osteosclerosisbone scarfocal osteo-sclerosis and peri-apical osteo-petrosis.

The offending tooth should be tested for vitality of the pulp, if inflamed or necrotic, then endodontic treatment is required as soon as possible, while hopeless teeth should be extracted. Condensing osteitis Synonyms Chronic focal sclerosing osteomyelitis isteitis ,Garre’s disease described by Dr.

Apical region of inflamed dead or dying teeth pulpitis or pulpal necrosis Usually seen in premolar and molar revion of mandible Dental pulp of the involved tooth demonstrates pulpitis or necrosis upon formal testing Rarely seen adjacent to a sound, unrestored tooth suggesting that other causative factors such as malocclusion may be operative.

The prognosis is excellent, once root canal treatment is completed. Osteomyelitis of the Jaws,pages95, New author database being installed, click here for details. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Chronic focal sclerosing osteomyelitis [1] ,Garre’s disease described by Dr. The associated tooth may be carious or contains a large restoration, and is usually associated with a non-vital tooth. Incisivecaninecanine-premolarpre-molarpre- molar-molar or molar. Retrieved from ” https: The effect on adjacent teeth may include indistinct lamina dura and periodontal ligament space and root resorption.

Once, the condition is diagnosed, treatment is neither indicated nor necessary.

The lesion appears as a radiopacity in the periapical area hence the sclerotic reaction. Click here for information on linking to our website or using our content or images.

These are localised growth of compact bone that extends from the inner surface of cortical bone into cancellous bone. Click here for patient related inquiries. If the offending tooth is extractedthe area of condensiny osteitis may remain in the jaws indefinitely, which is termed osteosclerosis or bone scar.

Focal internal growth of bone commonly seen in the premolar-molar region of the mandible. How are they treated? The shape of the DBI is classified as either round or irregular.

The sclerotic reaction results from good patient immunity and a low degree of virulence of the offending bacteria.

This page was last edited on 7 Februaryat They are the internal counterparts of exostoses. Tooth is vital in affected area. Possible osteoblastic response causing secondary sclerosis in response to a low grade inflammatory stimulus from an inflamed dental pulp.

Views Read Edit View history. The classic alteration consists of a localized, usually uniform zone of increased radiodensity adjacent to the apex of a tooth Tooth may exhibit a radiographically widened periodontal ligament space or an radiolucent apical inflammatory lesion such as periapical granuloma Is a non-expansile intraosseous process Radiographic differential diagnosis includes periapical cemental dysplasia, ostitis, complex odontoma, cementoblastoma, osteoblastoma and hypercementosis.


This causes more bone production rather than bone destruction in the area most common site is near the root apices of premolars regio molars. It is more or less rounded with size varying from a few millimetres up to a centimetre or more. Infection of periapical tissues of a high immunity host by organisms of low virulence which leads to a localized bony reaction condensign a low grade inflammatory stimulus.

Condensing osteitis is a periapical inflammatory disease that results from a reaction to a dental related infection. May represent a physiologic bone reaction to a known stimulus; thus, in a classic case, the radiopaque bone lesion itself need not be removed The inflamed tooth that stimulated the focal sclerosing osteomyelitis should first be diagnosed and treated For a necrotic tooth pulp or irreversible pulpitis, ccondensing extraction or endodontic therapy is performed causing many cases to partially regress and not enlarge radiographically For nonclassic radiographic or clinical cases, bone lesion biopsy may be useful to rule out more significant lesions.

How are they diagnosed? Dense Bone Islands DBI’s are also known as enostoses or idiopathic osteosclerosis, bone scarfocal osteosclerosis and peri-apical osteopetrosis. Last Updated 7th September Micro description of bone lesions.
