Conservative Management of Regional Odontodysplasia: Case Report


• Shiu-yin Cho, BDS, MDS, FRACDS •

A b s t r a c t

Regional odontodysplasia is an uncommon developmental anomaly affecting a localized
area of the dentition. The affected teeth are often grossly malformed and develop abscess soon after eruption. Although extractions are often required, in some milder cases the teeth may be retained for a long period. The treatment plan should be based on the degree of involvement as well as functional and esthetic needs in each case. This article describes a conservative treatment approach in a 10-year-old boy with regional odontodysplasia.
