Study Notes

Epstein Pearls, Bohn's Nodules, and Dental Lamina Cysts

  • Epstein pearls are small, whitish-yellow papules found on the roof of the mouth, particularly on the median raphe of the palate.

  • They are typically 1-2 mm in diameter and are considered harmless, requiring no treatment.

  • Epstein pearls are found on the palate, specifically on the median raphe.

  • Bohn's nodules are small, soft, and pinkish-white lesions found on the alveolar ridges or gingiva.

  • They are considered remnants of the remnants of the dental lamina, a developmental structure that guides tooth formation.

  • Bohn's nodules are usually asymptomatic and do not require treatment.

  • Dental lamina cysts are formed from remnants of the dental lamina, a developmental structure that guides tooth formation.

  • They usually occur in infants and young children, often resolving spontaneously by the age of 3-4 years.

  • Dental lamina cysts are typically small and asymptomatic, but can become inflamed or infected in rare cases.
