The shape of the DBI is classified as either round or irregular. Dense Bone Islands DBI’s are also known as enostoses or idiopathic osteosclerosis, bone scar condesning, focal osteosclerosis and peri-apical osteopetrosis. Once, the condition is diagnosed, treatment is neither indicated nor necessary.

May represent a physiologic bone reaction to a known stimulus; thus, in a classic case, the radiopaque bone lesion itself need not be removed The inflamed tooth that stimulated the focal sclerosing osteomyelitis should first be diagnosed and treated For a necrotic tooth pulp or irreversible pulpitis, dental extraction or endodontic therapy is performed causing many cases to partially regress and not enlarge radiographically For nonclassic radiographic or clinical cases, bone lesion biopsy may be useful to rule out more significant lesions.

Condensing osteitis in oral region.

Condensing osteitis is a periapical inflammatory vondensing that results from a reaction to a dental related infection.


Micro description of bone lesions. No change in size or any malignant potential. Apical region of inflamed dead or dying teeth oosteitis or pulpal necrosis Usually seen in premolar and molar areas of mandible Dental pulp of the involved tooth demonstrates pulpitis or necrosis upon formal testing Rarely seen adjacent to a sound, unrestored tooth suggesting that other causative factors such as malocclusion may be operative.

The offending tooth should be tested for vitality of the pulp, if inflamed or necrotic, then endodontic treatment is required as soon as possible, while hopeless teeth should be extracted. If the offending tooth is extractedthe area of condensing osteitis may remain in the jaws indefinitely, which is termed osteosclerosis or bone scar. The classic alteration consists of a localized, usually uniform zone of increased radiodensity adjacent to the apex of a tooth Tooth may exhibit a radiographically widened periodontal ligament space or an radiolucent apical inflammatory lesion such as periapical granuloma Is a non-expansile intraosseous process Radiographic differential diagnosis includes periapical cemental dysplasia, osteoma, complex odontoma, cementoblastoma, osteoblastoma and hypercementosis.

They are the internal counterparts of exostoses. Osteomyelitis of the Jaws,pages95, The process is usually asymptomatic and benignin most cases the tooth will require root canal treatment.
