It can affect any area of the dental arches. They are usually reported with several syndromes such as Gardner's syndrome, Cleidocranial dysplasia, Ehler Danlos syndrome, Down's syndrome, etc. Rarely, is it observed in a non-syndromic association. A familial finding of multiple supernumerary teeth is even rarer. Detection of supernumerary teeth is a coincidental finding and is usually detected on radiographs. The article presente...

An immunohistochemical evaluation of podoplanin expression in oral leukoplakia and oral squamous cell carcinoma to explore its potential to be used as a predictor for malignant transformation
Conclusion: The progressive increase in podoplanin expression through the increasing grades of dysplasia in OL is suggestive of an increased risk for malignant transformation with increased expression of podoplanin in OL cases. A high podoplanin expression in the well-differentiated OSCC may indicate a vital role for podoplanin in the early stages of tumorigenesis. (Source: Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology)

Expression of p63 in tooth germ, dentigerous cyst and ameloblastoma
Conclusion: p63 plays a role in the cytodifferentiation and proliferation of odontogenic epithelial cells irrespective of the tissue (normal developing or lesional tissue). This implies that p63 cannot be used as a diagnostic marker. However, our results indicate p63 overexpression as a mark of increased proliferation. Thus, it can be stipulated that p63 can be used as a prognostic marker in odontogenic lesions with more aggressive and invasive phenotype. Our results also suggest the differential function of p63 in both developing and lesional odontogenic tissues, which, however, depends on p63 isoform predominantly being ...
