Abstract

ABERRANT MAXILLARY FIRST MOLAR MIMICKING MANDIBULAR FIRST MOLAR –AN UNUSUAL CASE REPORT

Swapna M, Sivakumar Nuvvula

The tooth development involves a complex series of genetic interactions involving growth factors, transcription factors, signal receptors and diffusible morphogens that interact within independent signalling pathways. This report describes a case of occlusal dysmorphology and a root variance of maxillary right first molar which almost mimicked that of a rotated mandibular 1st molar. The cuspal variation of mesiodistal was same as that of 36. This kind of variation may be due to Genetic or Environmental factors or interplay of both. So there is a need for research to be done in this aspect in larger group.
