Special Issue Description

Teeth begin to erupt in the unborn child. For the development of teeth, the mother’s diet throughout pregnancy is crucial. A sufficient amount of calcium, phosphorus, vitamin C, and vitamin D should be present in the mother’s diet. Tetracycline is one medication that shouldn’t be taken while pregnant. These may darken the growing teeth of the unborn child. The development of teeth goes through 4 major phases: At around six weeks of pregnancy, the unborn infant enters the first stage (gestation). At this point, the tooth’s basic structure begins to take shape. Next, about 3 to 4 months after conception, the hard tissue that protects the teeth begins to develop. The next stage begins when the tooth protrudes through the gums after the baby is delivered. The baby or primary teeth are finally lost by the child. The intricate process through which teeth emerge from embryonic cells, mature, and erupt into the mouth is known as odontogenesis. All components of a human tooth must develop throughout the proper prenatal developmental phases for the tooth to have a healthy mouth environment. Between the sixth and eighth weeks of prenatal development, primary (baby) teeth begin to erupt, and permanent teeth follow in twenty weeks. Teeth will not develop at all if they do not begin to erupt at or around these times, leading to hypodontia or anodontia. Finding the mechanisms that start tooth formation has been the subject of extensive study. It is commonly acknowledged that the first pharyngeal arch’s tissues include a component essential for tooth development. The anatomical study of human tooth structures is the focus of the discipline of dental anatomy. Its scope includes tooth development, appearance, and categorization. (The function of teeth as they contact one another falls under dental occlusion.). Dental anatomy is a taxonomical discipline as well because it deals with naming teeth and the structures they are formed of, information that is useful in dental therapy. The upper jaw of an average adult’s maxilla typically contains 10 primary teeth, while the lower jaw’s mandible typically houses the remaining 10 (lower jaw). There are 32 permanent teeth in total, with 16 in the maxilla and 16 in the mandible. There are four third molars, also known as “wisdom teeth,” which may or may not erupt. This special issue invites the authors to submit articles on dental anatomy and physiology and discuss the development of teeth from fetus to adult.
