They had removed a lot of teeth from the molar and on counting it, they found out that the total number was 232.
The difference of this study from others is that the pregnant women were followed until confirmation or exclusion of a molar pregnancy, but in other studies, the statistics were derived from admission of cases with molar pregnancies in hospitals.
Once the molar tooth sign is identified, the brain MRI scan should be reviewed for other associated abnormalities including abnormal configuration and malrotation of the hippocampi, callosal dysgenesis, malformations of cortical development and cephaloceles, which have been described in a sizeable number of patients with JSRDs.
Unerupted, impacted third molars occur in 20-30% of the population (1) and are most commonly noticed as a incidental finding on OPG rather than a patient presenting with symptoms.
Swales, pits, and/or linear furrows were noted on the lower molars of 60% of the opossums.
Most of the formaldehyde emission control from wood-based composites was achieved by lowering the molar ratio of formaldehyde to urea (F/U) in the resin; however, the lower F/U molar ratio negatively influenced some other properties.
As showed in table 1, four resinification factors, including resinification time, resinification temperature, molar ratio (NaOH/liquefied wood) and molar ratio (methanal/ liquefied wood), were selected to be optimized by using the L16 (45) orthogonal table in term of the viscosity, solid content and pH of resinification product.
