Abstract

Odontodysplasia is a rare, non-hereditary developmental anomaly affecting dental tissues derived from both the mesoderm and ectoderm which results in a bizarre clinical and radiographic appearance. Regional odontodysplasia describes the segmental and localized nature of the condition. Odontodysplasia occurring in a single tooth is a rare occurrence. A case of Solitary odontodysplasia in an eleven year and half old male whose chief complaint was the absence of eruption of permanent maxillary right central incisor teeth is presented. Clinical, radiographic and histological findings of a single tooth, odontodysplasia are described in this case report.
