For the first time ever, the development of the dentition is presented in virtual reality using sophisticated computer technology. Three-dimensional views provide fascinating insights into this complex process. Factors that affect the way the dentition develops in the growing face are clarified, and the role of function is emphasized.
This exciting new video describes and illustrates the morphogenesis of the teeth with extensive new animated material. Variations in the arrangement of teeth at subsequent stages of development that still lead to a normal occlusion are shown. The relationship of the development of the teeth to the size of the jaws and to subsequent skeletal growth is explained. Associated abnormal conditions that occur during the development of the dentition are elucidated.
