GARIB, Daniela Gamba; ZANELLA, Nildiceli Leite Melo e PECK, Sheldon. Associated dental anomalies: case report. J. Appl. Oral Sci. [online]. 2005, vol.13, n.4, pp. 431-436. ISSN 1678-7757. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1678-77572005000400021.
Certain human dental anomalies frequently occur together, supporting the accumulated evidence of the shared genetic control of dental developmental disturbances. The present study reports a rare and interesting case of a 12-year-old girl with an association of multiple dental abnormalities, including agenesis, tooth malposition and delayed development. The etiology and treatment planning are discussed with reference to the literature. The clinical implications of genetically controlled patterns of dental anomalies are important in the establishment of early diagnosis and appropriate orthodontic intervention.
