Possible osteoblastic response causing secondary sclerosis in response to a low grade inflammatory stimulus from an inflamed dental pulp. The condensinb reaction results from good patient immunity and a low degree of virulence of the offending bacteria.

Dense Bone Islands & Enostoses

If the offending tooth is extractedthe area of condensing osteitis may remain in the jaws indefinitely, which is termed osteosclerosis or bone scar. 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.

They are the internal counterparts of exostoses. Page views in This section is empty.

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, osteoma, complex odontoma, cementoblastoma, osteoblastoma and hypercementosis.


The shape of the DBI is classified as either round or irregular. Views Read Edit View history.

The associated teeth are usually asymptomatic. The lesion appears as a radiopacity in the periapical area hence the sclerotic reaction. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The location of the lesion is classified as mandibular or maxillary firstly, then further by region of the jaw: Dense Bone Islands are synonymous with enostoses or idiopathic osteosclerosisbone scarfocal osteo-sclerosis and peri-apical osteo-petrosis. The associated tooth may condensihg carious or contains a large restoration, and is usually associated with a non-vital tooth. It represents a focus of mature compact cortical bone within the cancellous bone spongiosa.

Condensing osteitis in oral region.

Focal internal growth of bone commonly seen in the premolar-molar region of the mandible. Osteomyelitis of the Jaws,pages95, Once, the condition is diagnosed, treatment is neither indicated nor necessary.

Inflammations Osteitis Pathology of the maxilla and mandible. Condensing osteitis is a periapical inflammatory disease that results from a reaction to a dental related infection. Infection of periapical tissues of a high immunity host by organisms of low virulence which leads to a localized bony reaction to a low grade inflammatory stimulus. How are they diagnosed?

Tooth is vital in affected area. Dense Bone Islands DBI’s are also known as enostoses or idiopathic osteosclerosis, bone scarfocal osteosclerosis and peri-apical osteopetrosis. These are localised growth of compact bone that extends from the inner surface of cortical bone into cancellous bone.
