Long-term follow-up in lower right second premolar tooth with a dental follicle but no tooth bud: A case report
Aim: The patient was followed up in consultation with the orthodontist, and after a long-term follow-up, it was found that the dental germ developed, but the position of the tooth was horizontal. When the follow-ups were continued, it was observed that the position of the tooth also improved, and it progressed smoothly along the tooth eruption path.
Methodology: In the panoramic radiography of an 8-year-old male patient who applied to the clinic complaining about the left upper first primary molar tooth, the right lower permanent second premolar tooth follicle developed, but there was no tooth development in the follicle.
Results: When follicle formation is observed, only following the patients without directing them to orthodontic treatment, which is expensive and difficult, positively affects their dental structure. Following patients without affecting their lives can be significant.
Conclusion: We emphasize the importance of long-term follow-up when follicle formation was observed. We predicted that this situation was caused by the disconnection in the interaction of transcription factors and signals in the tooth development stage.
