BORIE, Eduardo; FUENTES, Ramón y BELTRAN, Víctor. Multiple Tooth Agenesis in Non-syndromic Patient: A Rare Case Report. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2012, vol.30, n.2, pp. 634-636. ISSN 0717-9502. doi: 10.4067/S0717-95022012000200045.
Dental agenesis is a term referred to the absence of one or more teeth. However, oligodontia is a severe type of tooth agenesis involving six or more congenitally missing teeth, excluding the third molars. Oligodontia has a low prevalence and is a very rare condition. The aim was to show this case report of a 13-year-old female patient who presented oligodontia with absence of eight permanent teeth and condylar atrophy on left side. The patient had no history of any syndrome or systemic disease according to the anamnesis. Is very important to know oligodontia features to perform a carefully treatment plan.
