Relationship Between Tooth Mineralization and Early Radiographic Evidence of the Ulner Sesamold

  • This study investigates the relationship b/w the stages of mineralization of various teeth and early radiographic evidence of calcification of sesamoid among South African white boys and girls.
  • Sample size – 140 (93 girls, 47 boys)
  • OPG of jaws and teeth and left hand wrist X-rays were examined.
  • The criterion for selection was based on the appearance of a calcified sesamoid of atleast one mm diameter.
  • Skeletal age was given to each individual using T.W.2 method (Tanner, Whitehouse, Marshall, Healy and Goldstein, 1975.)
  • The OPGs were examined and tooth mineralization on the left side rated according to the method described by Demerjian et al, 1973.
  • The range of the stages ascribed to the state of development of the teeth used in the study varied from C to H.
