Abstract

PYRAMIDAL MOLAR ROOTS IN PRIMARY AND PERMANENT DENTITION ALONG WITH NON SYNDROMIC OLIGODONTIA IN A 11 YEAR OLD BOY.

Manoj Kumar MG, Sai Sankar AJ, Srikanth RK

Primary and permanent molars are usually multi rooted. At times we can encounter cases with a single root, called pyramidal root. Oligodontia is defined as the developmental absence of six teeth or more, excluding third molars. It can be isolated (Oligodontia-I) or as a part of a syndrome (Oligodontia-S) such as in ectodermal dysplasia. The present report describes a case of single-rooted primary and permanent molars associated with oligodontia in an 11 year old boy with no apparent systemic complications.
