Larger scale studies would allow regression analysis to determine the actual risk of each specific dental anomaly
with ectopic molar eruption and vice versa, thus giving greater insight into the complex interactions of dental development.
Most of the patients diagnosed with the above mentioned dental anomaly
were >25 years of age, n=80/97 (82.
Microdontia was second most prevalent dental anomaly
observed in 21 (4%) patients with the maxillary lateral incisor being the most commonly affected tooth.
7 percent of patients have at least one dental anomaly
The ever increasing need for orthodontic treatment in children has made it crucial to determine and evaluate different types of malocclusions among them1 because malocclusion is the second most common dental anomaly
The most common developmental and congenital dental anomaly
is tooth agenesis.
The purpose of this study was to determine the association of supernumararies with the congenital absence of permanent third molars and any other dental anomaly
in orthodontic patients.
Taurodon- tism is the morpho-anatomical change in the shape of a tooth, and it is a rare dental anomaly
which involves enlargement of the body of the tooth and shortening of the roots.
The aim to publish this case report is to emphasize the clinical challenges involved in endodontic treatment of rare dental anomaly
