Case Study
Regional odontodysplasia is a nonhereditary, uncommon developmental abnormality of teeth. Females have more predilections for regional odontodysplasia. The enamel, dentin and pulp of teeth are affected and radiographically, teeth are described as "ghost teeth". Many of these teeth do not erupt and have an increased risk for caries and periapical inflammation. Since the literature on regional odontodysplasia is limited, there is need to discuss this anomaly to have a better approach for the diagnosis and treatment.

    Dilaceration is a dental anomaly characterized by an angulation or bend in root or less frequently in the crown of tooth. This condition is thought to be caused by trauma during the period in which the tooth is forming, with the result of tooth is formed at an angle. This article presents case...

    The authors report a case of natal primary molar in a healthy 14-day-old child. The diagnosis of the case and the treatment plan are discussed, as well as histological analyses of the natal tooth. The tooth presented an immature appearance, with high mobility and insertion only in soft tissue,...

    Abnormal interaction between oral epithelium and underlying mesenchematic tissue during odontogenesis could result in teeth with an anatomical variation. First maxilar premolar has such variable root canal morphology. However, (0.2-6% of cases) a three-rooted premolar is particularly uncommon....
