PMID:  15509438     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The following case report describes the clinical and radiographical presentation of a female who attended a general dental practice as a new patient. The patient was diagnosed with generalised hypercementosis, possibly attributable to oral neglect. Hypercementosis is associated with a number of aetiological factors, which may be local or systemic in nature. It is important that the general dental practitioner is aware of these factors and is able to distinguish presentation due to a local cause from that of a systemic disease process. The aims of this paper are to illustrate an unusual presentation of hypercementosis and to discuss the radiographic differentiation that led to diagnosis.
