Clinical significance In postnatal life distinction b/w two is of no significance: # of intramembranous bone  Surface remodelling of endochondral bone  Prenatal life – congenital defects  Achondroplasia – Endochondral bone  Cleidocranial dysostosis – Intramembranous bone  Osteogenesis Imperfecta – both type 
  • 29. Parts Of Mandible Derived From 1. INTRAMEMBRANOUS OSSIFICATION i) Whole body of mandible except the anterior part ii) Ramus of mandible as far as mandibular foramen 2 . ENDOCHONDRAL OSSIFICATION i) Anterior portion of the mandible (symphysis) ii) Part of ramus above the mandibular foramen iii) Coronoid process iv) Condylar process
  • 30. Mechanisms Of Bone Growth Growth Of The Mandible Primarily Involve 1. Bone remodelling Process Of Bone Deposition And Resorption 2. Cortical drift Combination of bone deposition and resorption resulting in growth movement towards deposition surface 3. Displacement Movement of whole bone as a unit I) Primary displacement II) Secondary displacement
  • 31.
  • 32. Anatomy
  • 33. Theories Of Growth
  • 34. Theories Of Growth
  • 35. Other Theories  ENLOW’S “V” PRINCIPLE  The growth and enlargement of bones occur towards wide end of ‘v’ due to differential deposition and resorption
  • 36. Enlow’s Counterpart Principle  ‘The growth of any given facial or cranial part relates specifically to other structural and geometric “counter” parts in the face and cranium’.  Eg. Maxillary arch is counter part of mandibular arch. Regional part Regional part counter part counter part Balanced growth Balanced growth
  • 37. “The human mandible has no one design for “The human mandible has no one design for life. Rather it adapts and remodels through life. Rather it adapts and remodels through the seven stages of life, from the slim the seven stages of life, from the slim arbiter of things to come in the infant, arbiter of things to come in the infant, through a powerful dentate machine and through a powerful dentate machine and even weapon in the full flesh of maturity, even weapon in the full flesh of maturity, to the pencil thin, porcelain like problem to the pencil thin, porcelain like problem that we struggle to repair in the adversity that we struggle to repair in the adversity of old age.” of old age.” D.E. Poswillo, 1988 D.E. Poswillo, 1988
  • 38. Post Natal Growth And Development GROWTH TIMING Growth of width of mandible is completed first, then growth in length and finally growth in height
  • 39. Post Natal Growth And Development WIDTH OF MANDIBLE  Growth in width is completed before adolescent growth spurt  Intercanine width does increase after 12 years  Both molar and bicondylar width shows small increase until growth in length ends
  • 40. Post Natal Growth And Development GROWTH IN LENGTH Growth in length continues through puberty  Girls—14-15 years  boys---18-19 years 
  • 41. Post Natal Growth And Development  Main sites of post natal growth in the Mandible  Condylar cartilage  Posterior border of the Rami  Alveolar ridges
  • 42. Condylar cartilage Secondary cartilage Dual function articular articular growth growth Not a pri. Centre of growth but rather 2° in evolution 2° in evolution 2° in embryonic origin 2° in embryonic origin 2°in adaptive responses to changing dev. 2°in adaptive responses to changing dev.
  • 43. Is the Condylar cartilage the principle force that produces the displacement of the mandible ? For many years considered primary growth center FMH - Condyle absent yet mandible positioned normally Considered secondary cartilage -no intrinsic growth potential
  • 44. Petrovic et al - Role of hormones Experiments involving transplantation of the condyle Johnston et al - Detached condyle from the body of mandible in guinea pigs Injection of papain - Inhibition of chondrogenesis Koski et al - Periosteal tension in condylar neck-lateral pterygoid- controls condylar growth
  • 45.  Condylar cartilage and functioning muscles translate the mandible and in the absence of one the other does best to compensate  Integrity of periosteum is important  When environment is changed compensatory contributions are enhanced
  • 46. Current Concept Condylar cartilage does have a measure of intrinsic genetic programming  But extra condylar factors are needed to sustain this activity  Physiologic inductors Intrinsic and extrinsic biomechanical forces ENLOW : Increase pressure – growth inhibition Decrease pressure – stimulates growth based mainly on animal experiments
  • 47. Ramus  Moves progressively posterior by:Deposition POSTERIOR PART  Resorption  ANTERIOR PART
  • 48. Ramus Superior part of ramus below sigmoid notch Lingual -Deposition Buccal - Resorption Lower part of ramus below the Coronoid process Buccal - Deposition Lingual - Resorption
  • 49. Ramus
  • 50. Ramus
  • 51. Coronoid process Posterior Lingual surface Superior Medially Follows ‘v’ principle
  • 52. Coronoid process ‘’V’ PRINCIPLE OF ENLOW
  • 53. Coronoid process  Medial  Increases vertical length Deposition on lingual side Posterior Growth Resorption - buccal surface
  • 54. Body of mandible  The increase in width of the mandible occurs primarily due to resorption on the inside and deposition on the outside  Increase in length occurs due to drift of the ramus posteriorly  Increase in height occurs due to eruption of the teeth
  • 55. Ramus corpus junction  Inferior Border of junction - resorption  Forms Antegonial notch
  • 56. Antegonial notch Size depends upon ramus – corpus angle
  • 57. Lingual Tuberosity  Grows posterior and medial by deposition Resorptive field belowLingual fossa 
  • 58. Alveolar Process Adds to the height and thickness of the mandibular body  Teeth absent fails to develop  Teeth extracted resorbs 
  • 59. Alveolar Process  Maintain occlusal relationship during differential mandibular & midfacial growth– buffer zones  Maintains vertical height  Adaptive remodeling makes orthodontic tooth movement possible
  • 60. Alveolar Process Lingual movement of anteriors Lingual movement of anteriors
  • 61. Mental Protuberance  Formed by mental ossicles from accessory cartilage and ventral end of Meckel’s cartilage  Poorly developed in infants
  • 62. Mental Protuberance  Forms by osseous deposition during childhood  Prominence is accentuated by bone resorption above it
  • 63. Mental Protuberance  Reversal between 2 growth fields  Concave  convex  Reversal line could be High or low
  • 64. Chin  Protrusive chin is unique human trait  More prominent in male  Less prominent in female Under dev. Of chin -- microgenia Under dev. Of chin microgenia
  • 65. Symphysis Menti  Limited growth till fusion  No widening after fusion
  • 66. Mental Foramen
  • 67. Factors Affecting Growth A) Systemic Factors 1. Genetic 2. Hormonal imbalance 3. Nutrition 4. Systemic illness or chronic illness 5. Localized alteration/ diseases of uterus 6. Systemic illness in mother 7. Drugs
  • 68. B) Local factors 1. Vascular abnormality 2. Lymphatic disturbance 3. Neurologic disease 4. Local infection 5. Ear infection or mastoiditis 6. Ankylosis 7. Trauma or fracture 8. Birth injury 9. Habits
