A multitude of theoretical, etiologic and therapeutic approaches to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction have been developed. In spite of all the efforts for combined therapy that have proliferated over the last years, the therapeutic options proposed for these patients are extraordinarily diversified and vary with the different schools. The different(More)
Concerning three specimens of Bourneville tuberous sclerosis, after a brief recall of general statements about this disease, the authors describe in two out of the three cases published, lesions of buccal mucosis typical of this disease. Besicle hyperplasic lesions, quite common with these patients who are epileptic most of the time, thise lesions mostly(More)
The authors have studied the localization, the functional and radiological signs, the complications, the etiologies and the treatment, according to 212 cases of impacted canines. The upper impacted canines are more frequent and women are more concerned, it can be unilateral as well as bilateral. If the mentioned etiologies are debatable and if the(More)
544 cases analysis have shown that the sagittal maxillo-mandibular discrepancies happens to be a very frequent problem in orthodontics. They are often compensated by dento-alveolar inclinations, when no muscular disorder, functional or constitutional, exists. The basal discrepancies modify the direction of dental inclinations. It is the normal action of the(More)
The study of 40 cases of voluminous odontogenic cysts has made evident the general characteristics of these current odontogenic tumors always tied-in with a tooth without any pathognomonic sign. The diagnosis is made by reasoning, combining clinical information, age, localisation, development, x-ray's information and anatomo-pathological parameters. The(More)
First described in 1898 under the name of cleido-cranial dysostosis by Pierre Marie and Sainton, this hereditary disease is highly polymorphous and progressive, hence the multiplicity of its manifestations. These involve not only the skull and clavicle, but also the hands, the spine and the teeth. In fact, it is disturbance of growth rather than a(More)

The incidence has not been decreasing in spite of flight conditions improvement. These kind of dental pain cause a problem for those who fly: civilian and military pilots as well as(More)

The set of the usual aspects of the disease was not comprehensive and the inflammatory syndrom was rather weak; nevertheless the diagnosis of a giant cell panarteritis was admitted and a strong cortico-therapy quickly set up which greatly improved the patient. After a brief(More)
Through a study of 68 patients, presenting 84 supernumerary teeth all together and, after a thorough survey of the literature, we can now state accurately about the frequency, location, surgery, X-Ray and heredity involved. After recalling and discussing the various pathological theories already set up, a theory has been put forward, more specifically(More)
Supernumerary molars are a rather uncommon anomaly. It is more frequent in the upper than in the lower maxillary. Its pathology is often subdued and as a general rule it is detected by X-Ray. In our opinion, its setting shows two processes: --either an extra growth; it is then a normal tooth similar in shape to the wisdom tooth; --or an evagination of the(More)
