Figure 6: Orthopantomogram from a child, with red markings indicating the areas in which the ectodermal tissue plays a role in tooth development. These areas are the inner enamel epithelium within the crown, the periroot sheet along the root, and the crown follicle in nonerupted teeth. An ectodermal deviation may cause general malformed crowns and/or roots and abnormal resorption of primary teeth due to abnormal crown follicles[3]
