Methods: The labiopalatal and mesiodistal root dimensions, mesiodistal coronal dimensions, and labiopalatal bone and alveolar ridge widths of the maxillary lateral incisor were assessed on posttreatment cone beam computed tomography scans of 15 patients (mean age 16.5 ± 3.4 years, 9 females and 6 males) with ...
Partial anodontia. Congenitally missing teeth are more common among individuals with Down syndrome (50%) when compared to the general population (2%), though the distribution of missing teeth is similar in both populations.22 Genetic modes of transmission are responsible for this condition. A relationship between partial anodontia and other ectodermal defects (mucous membrane, hair, skin) has been suggested.19 Further research indicated that this "Trisomic insult" will greatly increase the susceptibility of the host to partial anodontia, while not affecting specific tooth buds.22 The most frequently missing teeth in descending order are third molars, second bicuspids, lateral incisors, and mandibular incisors. The only teeth not missing are first molars.22 Sometimes the primary tooth will not be resorbed or will be resorbed so slowly that it can be retained well into adulthood.24 Treatment decisions should be made after reviewing the radiographs with concern for space maintenance. In the general ...

The cause of isolated missing teeth remains unclear, but the condition is believed to be associated with genetic or environmental factors during dental development. Missing teeth have been reported in association with increased maternal age, low birth weight, multiple births and rubella virus infection during embryonic life.[citation needed] In a recent study assessing environmental risk factors for hypodontia, it was established that maternal smoking does play a causative role in Hypodontia. Passive smoking and caffeine were also assessed but showed no statistical significance.[7] There is a possible correlation between tooth agenesis and innervation.[8][9][10][11][12] A relationship was also postulated between abnormalities of the brainstem and the presence of agenesis.[13] Hypodontia is often familial, and can also be associated with genetic disorders such as ectodermal dysplasia or Down syndrome. Hypodontia can also be seen in people with cleft lip and palate. Among the possible causes are ...
Missing teeth in early childhood can result in abnormal facial morphology with a narrow upper airway.6 Dental agenesis, which is the manifestation of missing permanent teeth, is the most prevalent craniofacial anomaly in humans.7 The potential association between dental agenesis or early dental extractions and the presence of OSA has been investigated.6 OSA causes breathing to repeatedly stop and start during sleep; this type of apnea occurs when the throat muscles intermittently relax and block the airway. A noticeable sign of OSA is snoring. OSA is characterized by upper airway collapsibility, repetitive pharyngeal collapse during sleep. Therefore, one variable used in describing the mechanics of the upper airway is to measure its propensity for collapse.8. A study was conducted of 31 children with dental agenesis and 11 children with early dental extractions who had at least two permanent teeth missing.6 All children with missing teeth had identifiable clinical signs of OSA. There was a ...

A specific form of hypodontia with an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance characterized by missing primary and permanent incisors and an increased inclination to eczema and asthma has been found in Finland (Pirinen et al, 2001) and apparently also in other countries (Fried, 1977; Akyuz et al, 1993; Lyngstadaas et al, 1996). RIH patients lack several lower incisors and upper permanent lateral incisors. In addition, some other permanent teeth can be missing. Half the patients have a corresponding primary tooth either missing or peg-shaped. Taurodontism of the molars is noted in more than half the patients. A large proportion of the patients (62%) report allergies manifesting as atopic skin (52%), and asthma (43%). Minor dental anomalies are seen in their parents and siblings in the form of missing and/or peg-shaped upper lateral incisors and missing third molar(s). The proportion of atopic diseases, both in the patients and their family members exceeds reported population prevalences. In a ...
We recently identified a frame-shift mutation in the PAX9 gene as the underlying cause for hypodontia involving permanent molar teeth segregating in an autosomal dominant pattern in a single large family (Stockton et al. 2000). Here we report a small nuclear family in which a father and his daughter are affected with severe hypodontia, involving agenesis of all primary and permanent molars, evidently caused by deletion of the entire PAX9 gene. Hemizygosity at the PAX9 locus in the two affected individuals was initially discovered when an informative single nucleotide polymorphism, identified while sequencing the gene for mutations, appeared to demonstrate non-Mendelian inheritance. Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis with a cosmid containing the PAX9 gene yielded a signal on only one chromosome 14 homologue and confirmed the presence of a deletion encompassing the PAX9 locus. Analysis of microsatellite loci in the vicinity of PAX9 delineated one breakpoint of the deletion. These ...
The purpose of this project is to examine whether the risk of developing ovarian cancer is increased in Danish women with congenital missing teeth as a result of their failure to develop (hypodontia). Should this prove to be the case, these women could be offered regular clinical controls and prophylactic removal of their ovaries when menopause enters and the ovaries are no longer functional (producing hormones).. If there is a connection between congenital hypodontia and the development of different types of cancer, the investigators will perform a genetic screening in families with increased risk of cancer and hypodontia for changes in relevant genes, based on the current literature. The investigators hereby search for new genes, which in a changed form leads to an increased risk of cancer and thereby enables us to perform genetic screening in risk families. ...
Orthodontic treatment for patients with uni- or bilateral congenitally missing lateral incisors is a challenge to effective treatment planning. The two major alternatives, orthodontic space closure or space opening for prosthetic replacements, can both compromise aesthetics, periodontal health, and function.. The aim of this retrospective study was to examine treated patients who had congenitally missing lateral incisors and to compare their opinion of the aesthetic result with the dentists opinions of occlusal function and periodontal health. In this sample, 50 patients were identified. Thirty had been treated with orthodontic space closure, and 20 by space opening and a prosthesis (porcelain bonded to gold and resin bonded bridges). The patients opinion of the aesthetic result was evaluated using the Eastman Esthetic Index questionnaire and during a structured interview. The functional status, dental contact patterns, periodontal condition, and quality of the prosthetic replacement was ...
Tooth agenesis can involve one or more congenitally missing teeth (CMT) and is the most common congenital dental anomalies in humans. Tooth agenesis and reduction of mesiodistal tooth width are reportedly associated, suggesting that the pathogenesis of the two conditions is related. The current study analyzed the frequency of tooth agenesis and mesiodistal tooth width in cases of hypodontia (1-5 CMT) and oligodontia (≥ 6 CMT) in Japanese patients based on the hypothesis that reductions in mesiodistal tooth width are more frequently associated with oligodontia than hypodontia. Japanese patients with tooth agenesis were divided into hypodontia cases (60 female and 25 male, mean age 19.6 years, mean CMT number 1.31 ± 1.65) and oligodontia cases (26 female and 25 male, mean age 14.6 years, mean CMT number 8.07 ± 2.39). Controls included patients with a skeletal class I relationship and no CMT (female and 60 male, mean age 20.8 years). Dental casts and orthopantomograms were used to analyze the CMT

DISCUSSION. A case of CHH is presented here, wherein a 20-year-old female has missing mandibular central incisors, maxillary second molars, and all the third molars. In addition, she had a malformed supernumerary tooth in the mandibular left anterior region. After a thorough literature search, the rarity of such an occurrence prompted the authors to present this case.. When the tooth or teeth are clinically and radiographically absent and there is no history of extraction or traumatic avulsion of teeth, it is termed as agenesis or hypodontia. Literature search reveals that 15% of missing teeth are lower second premolars, 19% upper second premolars, 29% upper lateral incisors, 11% lower first premolars, 3% lower central incisor, and 1% are lower lateral incisor. Hypodontia of second molars and canine is rare (0.7% of missing teeth). Furthermore, 71% of individuals with hypodontia of some other teeth also lacked third molars.7 In the case presented here, bilateral maxillary second molar agenesis ...

The congenital absence of teeth, commonly referred to as hypodontia or tooth agenesis, is a common developmental anomaly of human dentition that affects approximately 20% of the population. Although new genetic and molecular approaches in humans and mice have increased our understanding of the molecules that control tooth patterning (number, position, shape and size), the precise nature of the genes involved in hypodontia in humans is poorly understood. Hence, understanding the molecular basis for missing teeth is an issue of paramount importance that is both timely and significant to the practice of dentistry. So far, only two genes have been associated with non-syndromic familial tooth agenesis: MSX1 and PAX9. Substitution mutations in the homeodomain region of MSX1 were linked to premolar agenesis while an insertion mutation in the paired box domain of PAX9 was shown to be responsible for molar oligodontia.. The long-term goals of this research are to elucidate the molecular pathology of ...
Prevalence and incidence statistics for Microdontia - hypodontia - short stature covering estimated populations and diagnosis rates.
Recent advances in dental adhesives allow reattachment of fragments in subgingivally fractured teeth. However, success will depend on the skill of the clinician and care by the patient.
The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of tooth agenesis, microdontia, and tooth malformation among non-syndromic oral cleft patients and their potential association with cleft type and gender. Intraoral records and radiographs of 154 patients (97 males and 57 females) were examined. The variables assessed were tooth agenesis, microdontia, dental malformations, and cleft types. The statistics included chi-square and Fishers exact tests as well as logistic regression to assess any mutual effects of gender and cleft type on the dental variables. Tooth agenesis occurred in 50% of the sample and microdontia in 18%. Non-statistically significant odds ratios for the association of gender and cleft type with tooth agenesis were obtained. Tooth agenesis was substantially higher at the unilateral right CL + P and the bilateral CL + P in quadrant 1 and at the unilateral left CL + P and bilateral CL + P in quadrant 2. It was also higher, at the isolated cleft palate (CP) in quadrants 3 and 4.

A suite of dental characteristics displayed by the type specimen are all that distinguishes P. piveteaui from the other members of the genus. This mandibular fragment exhibits a distinct molar morphotype containing a very small and tapered M3 when compared to the distally narrowing M2 (Hartwig). The teeth are very small, but in the range of P. antiquus. Two upper teeth are known from the species, a P4 and M3. When the P4 is compared to an isolated P4 from Poland of either P. antiquus or P. platyodon, it is unconfirmed as to which species the isolated P4 belongs to, that of P. piveteaui is much smaller and broader (Hartwig).. ...

Aims: To assess the rate of tooth movement, anchorage loss, root resorption, and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity in the gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) as a marker for bone remodeling during orthodontic space closure using two different mechanisms. Methods: Space closure was completed in 20 patients with extraction of all 4 premolars. Lateral cephalograms and radio visiographs taken before (T1) and after (T2) space closure were assessed for anchorage loss and root resorption. Alkaline phosphatase levels were measured in 10 patients, which were divided into two groups of five each. Spaces were closed with a screw device in the first group and with active tie-backs in the second. Gingival crevicular fluid samples, collected at intervals, were assayed for alkaline phosphatase spectrophotometrically in each patient. Results: The mean rate of tooth movement was 1.32 0.22 mm/month. The mean amount of anchorage loss in the maxilla and mandible was 1.23 0.60 mm and 1.08 0.65 mm, respectively. Sixty ...

The potential association between dental agenesis or early dental extractions and the presence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) was investigated. Methods: We reviewed clinical data, results of polysomnographic sleep studies, and orthodontic imaging studies of children with dental agenesis (n = 32) or early extraction of permanent teeth (n = 11) seen during the past 5 years and compared their findings to those of age-, gender-, and body mass index-matched children with normal teeth development but tonsilloadenoid (T&A) hypertrophy and symptoms of OSA (n = 64). Results: The 31 children with dental agenesis and 11 children with early dental extractions had at least 2 permanent ...
Tooth agenesis is one of predominant developmental anomalies in humans, usually affecting the permanent dentition generated by sequential tooth formation, and in most cases caused by mutations perturbing epithelial Wnt/β-catenin signaling. Also loss-of-function mutations in the Wnt feedback inhibitor AXIN2 lead to human tooth agenesis. We investigated the functions of Wnt/β-catenin signaling during sequential formation of molar teeth using mouse models. Continuous initiation of new teeth, observed after genetic activation of Wnt/β-catenin signaling in the oral epithelium, was accompanied by enhanced expression of Wnt antagonists and a downregulation of Wnt/β-catenin signaling in the dental mesenchyme. Genetic and pharmacological activation of mesenchymal Wnt/β-catenin signaling negatively regulated sequential tooth formation, an effect partly mediated by Bmp4. Runx2, a gene whose loss-of-function mutations result in sequential formation of supernumerary teeth in the human cleidocranial ...
Abnormalities in size of teeth and number of teeth are occasionally recorded in clinical cases. True generalized microdontia is rare case in which all the teeth are smaller than normal. Mesiodens is commonly located in maxilary central incisor region and uncommon in the mandible. In the present case a 12 year-old boy was healthy; normal in appearance and the medical history was noncontributory. The patient was examined and found to have permanent teeth that were smaller than those of the average adult teeth. The true generalized microdontia was accompanied by mandibular mesiodens. This is a unique case report of non-syndromic association of mandibular hyperdontia with true generalized microdontia.
Most childrens permanent teeth erupt on a fairly predictable schedule. Sometimes, though, one or more teeth might not develop as they should - or at all.. These absent teeth pose functional problems for chewing and hygiene, which can affect long-term dental health. But they can also have a disruptive effect on an otherwise attractive smile if the missing teeth are the upper lateral incisors in the most visible part of the smile.. You normally find this pair of teeth on either side of the upper central incisors (the two front-most teeth). On the other side of the lateral incisors are the canine or eye teeth, known for their pointed appearance. Without the lateral incisors, the canines tend to drift into the space next to the central incisors. This can produce an odd appearance even a layperson will notice: only four teeth where there should be six!. Its possible to correct this abnormality, but it will take time and expense. The first step is usually to move the teeth in the upper jaw with ...

Certain clinical features in men and women are highly associated with genetic causes of KS. Synkinesia (KAL1), dental agenesis (FGF8/FGFR1), digital bony abnormalities (FGF8/FGFR1), and hearing loss (CHD7) can be useful for prioritizing genetic screening.
A number of our teeth are not genetically "stable." By that, I mean that we have a high likelihood to from birth be missing teeth, have deformed teeth, or have extra teeth. The third molars are often completely or partially absent. The upper lateral incisors (teeth on either side of the middle top teeth) are often missing or mis-shapen (Google "peg laterals" for more). Even the two center upper teeth sometimes duplicate (Google "mesiodens" for more on that ...
Clinical report of a 27-year-old patient diagnosed with trisomy 16 and congenital cervical scoliosis; within the oral clinical manifestations of the disease were found agenesis of upper lateral incisors, ankyloglossia, over-inserted labial frenulum and high and arched palate; also the patient showed generalized marginal gingivitis associated to plaque with a loss of attachment level in dental organs 31 and 41. Partial or complete trisomy 16 are considered non-compatible with life; this anomaly corresponds to 2% of the causes of abortion in the first trimester; SH and DP Roberts Duckett reported a case of survival of 10 months, and in this case, the survival is 27 years.

Teeth have a tendency to move towards the missing tooth area. If there is some missing tooth present at the back, then front teeth will tend to move towards the back. That is why emphasis is laid on replacing the missing tooth. Missing tooth if not replaced can lead to misalignment of other teeth and can also lead to periodontal problems.
