Abstract

SIMULTANEOUS OCCURRENCE OF MISSING UPPER INCISORS AND FUSED LOWER INCISORS…A RARE CASE REPORT.

Ratnakar P

Missing teeth are one of the most common developmental problems in children. The adult teeth are more frequently affected than the baby teeth. Fusion defined as the merger of two adjacent tooth germs producing one tooth. These teeth may be fused by enamel, dentin, or both. The fused crown is broader than non fused adjacent teeth and thus resembles gemination. However, tooth counting reveals decreased numbers. Fused teeth are rare in the permanent dentition. A case of simultaneous missing upper incisors and fused lower incisors is reported.
