Non-Syndromic Oligodontia: Report of Two Cases and Literature Review

Vijay Kumar Biradar, Surekha Vijaykumar Biradar

Abstract


Dental agenesis is the most common developmental anomaly in humans and is frequently associated with several other oral abnormalities”. In the literature, some terms are used to describe missing teeth like oligodontia, anodontia and hypodontia. Oligodontia is defined as the developmental absence of six teeth or more, excluding third molars. It can be isolated or as a part of a syndrome such as in ectodermal dysplasia. The present two cases describe agenesis of permanent teeth which are non-familial and with no apparent systemic abnormalities.
