Cíngulo dental: Revisión de la literatura

Description In the anthropological context, dental cingulum is recognized as a enamel structure that surrounds of all teeth on the cervical third, and which has the function of protecting the periodontal tissues of the fragments of food during mastication, dissipate the vertical forces during occlusion and provide a platform for the morphogenetic development of some dental morphological features. However, in the dental context, these functions of dental cingulum are misunderstood, primarily the development of morphological structures such as the dental tubercle, the interruption groove, the Carabelli trait, the parastyle and the protostylid. That is why this literature review aims to contrast the anthropological and odontological concepts, to the lack of understanding of the dental cingulum by the vast majority of oral health professionals.
Keywords: Dental Anthropology, dental morphology, dental cingulum, non-metric dental traits, dental morphogenesis.

En el contexto antropológico, se reconoce el cíngulo dental como una estructura que rodea –a manera de un collar de esmalte– toda la corona de los dientes anteriores y posteriores a nivel del tercio cervical, el cual tiene como función proteger los tejidos periodontales de los fragmentos de alimentos durante la masticación, disipar las fuerzas verticales durante la oclusión y servir de plataforma para el desarrollo morfogenético de algunos rasgos morfológicos dentales. No obstante, en el contexto odontológico, estas funciones del cíngulo resultan incomprendidas, fundamentalmente lo que tiene que ver con el desarrollo de estructuras morfológicas como el tubérculo dental, el surco interrumpido, la cúspide de Carabelli, el paraestilo y el protostílido. Es por ello que esta revisión de la literatura tiene como objetivo poner en contraste el concepto antropológico y el clínico odontológico, ante el desconocimiento del cíngulo dental por la gran mayoría de los profesionales de la salud oral.
Palabras claves: Antropología dental, morfología dental, cíngulo dental, rasgosmorfológicos dentales, morfogénesis dental.
