  • Hypodontia, microdontia and rotations are developmental dental anomalies resulting from genetic and epigenetic disturbances during tooth initiation, morphogenesis and eruption stages; with variable effects on function and dentofacial esthetics depending upon their severity. Hypodontia and microdontia may occur in syndromic or isolated non-syndromic forms based on presence or absence of congenital defects. This article briefly reviews hypodontia, microdontia and tooth rotation; and discusses a rare case presenting combination of these anomalies along with a possible treatment proposal.
