The Interrelationship between Permanent Maxillary Incisors and Neuropsychiatric ConditionsAuthor(s): Astrid Breum Kenrad and Inger Kjaar
This short commentary focus on two observations in two different dental conditions where neuropsychiatric diagnosis is needed. The permanent maxillary incisors are the two central incisors in the upper jaw and the two lateral incisors located between the central incisors and the canines in the upper jaw. All four maxillary incisors develop in the lower aspect of the frontonasal field of development. This field develops from cells migrating from the anterior part of the neural crest.
