    Abstract

    A number of craniofacial anomalies or syndromes involve severe disturbances of tooth formation and eruption (e.g. Apert syndrome, Crouzon syndrome, tricho-dento-osseous syndrome, cleidocranial dysplasia, and cleft lip and palate). So far, studies of these dental problems have been limited to two-dimensional analysis from orthopantomograms, intra-oral X-rays or cephalometric radiographs. A method for visualization of the developing tooth crowns in three dimensions based on CT-scans of the jaws has been developed (Bro-Nielsen et al., 1996). The purpose of the present study was to apply this new visualization method to the analysis of the complex dental problems found in some of the syndromes listed above.
