Significant findings related to the teeth (eg, tooth mobility
, tooth sensitivity, tooth decay, tooth wear) 7.
Interestingly tooth mobility
was minimal after 4 weeks and there was radiographic evidence of new periapical bone formation as early as 2 months postoperative.
Increased gingival bleeding and gingival exudate, as well as a minor increase in tooth mobility
, is associated with the menstrual cycle.
In this study, recording of tooth mobility
greatly reduced a favourable prognosis.
This study has shown that about 47% of patients were observed to have some sort of tooth mobility
problems, 58% of patients were observed to have gingival recession relative to abutments.
There is an increase in tooth mobility
during corticotomy assisted orthodontic treatment due to the transient osteopenia without a change in bone matrix volume.
The areas were re-assessed for inflammation and tooth mobility
at the maintenance visit.
nonsurgical extractions of periodontally involved permanent teeth with tooth mobility
of +3 to +4.
During a clinical examination, in both dentitions, it is important to consider tooth colour (variable from normal to blue grey or yellow brown), tooth wear, abscess formation, tooth mobility
and early loss of teeth [Barron et al.
An injury to the tooth supporting structures without increasing tooth mobility
or displacement but with significant sensibility to the percurssion, is classified as: () concussion () subluxation () luxation () avulsion () none () I don't know 4.
Xerostomia was present in 87% patients followed by thickened mucosa (12%) , angular cheilitis (29%), periodontitis (41%), gingivitis (17%), tooth erosion (40%), tooth mobility
(38%), ammonia like odour (Uraemic fetor) (45%), coated tongue (17%) , mucosal pallor (37%), metallic taste (48%) and mucosal pigmentation (20% ).
