Lamina Dura otherwise known as a hard layer is a debatable question, on its significance and implication in various conditions. According to some Dentists if there is a complete or partial absence of Lamina dura then it is a diagnosis of pathoses like Cushing syndrome, Osteoporosis, Leukemia Pyle’s disease, Hyperparathyroidism, and some other periapical pathology. While others suggest that the radiographic increase in density of the Lamina dura indicates Osteopetrosis, Hypercementosis, and Occlusal traumatism. While endowing any diagnosis and treatment of any local or systemic disorders, the dentist is wherefore advised to consider other signs and symptoms, in conjunction with the integrity of the lamina dura. Lamina Dura delineates the tooth socket and is made up of a thin layer of compact bone. In a dental arch, a radiograph of healthy teeth demonstrates that the tooth socket is compassed by a thin radiopaque layer of dense bone. So, this article mainly accentuates the significance of lamina dura in health and disease.
