Figure 1: Schematic drawing of the jaw/tooth innervation on an orthopantomogram from an adult.[23] Note that there are specific main nerve paths in both jaws for the incisors, the canines/premolars and the molars. The colors in the different jaw segments follow the innervation path and indicate different mesenchymal origins from the neural crest. The predilection sites for juvenile periodontitis are in the region between the colored segments
