ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study on possible causes of dental anomalies. By collecting dental records from over 600 dental cases, researchers found that most dental anomalies are caused by inherited genetic traits. These anomalies do not seem to result from endocrine dyscrasia or vitamin deficiencies as was previously believed.

It comments that this instance of generalized microdontia appears to be a dominant autosomal inheritance. It...
