CPD:  CPD  1:20   (closed)      Self assess

Feedback:  0 comments, 0 ratings

Abstract: Treatment of patients with extensive hypodontia can present many difficulties in treatment planning for the multi-disciplinary team. Presented is an interesting case of non-syndromic hypodontia where the developmental absence of teeth is related to only one quadrant of the mouth. This unusual case of hypodontia appears to be sporadic with no familial or environmental history.

Clinical relevance: This case report describes an unusual presentation of hypodontia and provides a report on the current knowledge of the genetics of hypodontia
