It may occur when the patient closes into the intercuspal or retruded positions, or during excursions of the mandible. Occlusal factors may be important in the aetiology of increased mobility, but there are often other reasons. These are considered in the following section. Where the occlusion interacts with these factors, it may worsen or prevent resolution of the mobility.

Fremitus is occlusal bite trauma that occurs when closing in centric relation This information on fremitus is traumatic mobility or vibration upon closing was created in our NYC TMJ Bite Guards office. Fremitus tooth mobility vibration upon closing. The black dotted line shows the location for a potential root resection extraction if necessary.

Scaling was performed after the dental splint was glued with dental bonding material. The patient will return in three months to reevaluate periodontal healing and the potential need for the root resection. Same day. Notice the diastema tooth gap space was closed with teeth bonding to hide the wire splint and the incisal edge of 8 was reduced by drilling it shorter.

Fremitus is occlusal bite trauma that occurs when closing in centric relation. Tooth vibration can be felt on the tooth with an index finger when the mouth is opened and then closed. These pictures show the treatment of a periodontally involved — gum disease — upper left central incisor tooth 9. Note the angular bony defect in the radiograph. The patient reported that the tooth was getting longer and that he never previously had the tooth gap space between his two front teeth.

Tooth bonding placed between the teeth to close the gap tooth space also hides the palatal wire splint. The incisal edge of 9 was shortened and the occlusion bite was checked and adjusted for fremitus. Scaling and root planing was next performed and the patient was placed on a three-month periodontal reevaluation with the periodontist.

Occluso-periodontal combined bite gum problems and Fremitus — tooth mobility vibration upon closing.. Fremitus upon teeth closing was noted only on tooth 8.

Notice her deep bite, which can exacerbate this potential problem. Consider either lower anterior orthodontic intrusion with teeth braces or incisal adjustment — sculpting. Next, periodontal root planing and then probably gum surgery in the upper anterior. Following gum healing consider either upper orthodontic movement to bring these teeth back, or dental bonding with a palatal splint, after incisal adjustment of tooth 8. Fremitus is a palpable pathologic occlusion bite typically found on one upper front tooth when a patient closes their teeth.

This tooth vibration is considered an occlusal trauma. This patient presented with her upper left central incisor tooth flared labially — towards the lip. The patient, who was in her twenties, was informed by the periodontist about the severe periodontal gum condition and that the prognosis for this tooth was guarded at best. She was informed that a thorough check-up was indicated.

Orthodontics teeth braces is contra-indicated here because of the severe periodontal gum problem. If the patient accepts treatment on a tooth with a guarded prognosis, then it could include: scaling and root planing, open gum flap debridement if necessary, root canal therapy and dental crown with pink gum for aesthetics and possibly a teeth splint.

Treatment, otherwise, could include just scaling and root planing and incisal adjustment — sculpting. I personally would not rush to extract this tooth though the patient needs to be aware of this possibility.

AC mild pressure is applied to the face languages direction against the tooth first with one, then the other processing tool. Mobility can be observed by using the adjacent tooth like a fixed point of reference in the process of trying to move a tooth is considered. Vertical tooth mobility , the ability to pull the tooth in its socket, valuated at the end of the document the handle to put pressure on or chewing surface of the tooth enamel Fig. Although the periodontal ligament allows some slight movement of the tooth in its socket, the amount of this natural tooth movement is so insignificant that it cannot be seen with the naked eye. Thus, when visually assessing mobility, a doctor should expect to find no visible movement in periodontally healthy tooth.


Tooth Mobility and Fremitus

Fremitus is a vibration transmitted through the body. When a person speaks, the vocal cords create vibrations vocal fremitus in the tracheobronchial tree and through the lungs and chest wall, where they can be felt tactile fremitus. An increase in tactile fremitus indicates denser or inflamed lung tissue, which can be caused by diseases such as pneumonia. A decrease suggests air or fluid in the pleural spaces or a decrease in lung tissue density, which can be caused by diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or asthma. Pleural fremitus is a palpable vibration of the wall of the thorax caused by friction between the parietal and visceral pleura of the lungs. Fremitus appears when teeth move. This can be assessed by feeling and looking at teeth when the mouth is opened and closed.


Occlusion, the Periodontium and Soft Tissues

This is very important for a number of reasons. It is something we should look at in our new patient examinations and is something that we have to check and make sure that is not present when we are finishing occlusal equilibration. Fremitus is crucial when we are finishing our equilibrations. We have to make sure there is no fremitis present.


Fremitus is occlusal bite trauma that occurs when closing in centric relation

Fremitus is the vibration or movement of a tooth when teeth come into contact together. If you were to take your fingernail and put it on the front surface of a tooth and have the patient close together, and the tooth moved, that's fremitus. Well, the upper anterior teeth could be reclined and they could be encroaching upon the envelope of function. Maybe the teeth need a little freedom of movement in centric and a horizontal position, so as the arc of closure comes, you need to adjust for long centric.
