Abstract

Developmental disturbances give rise to various forms of tooth dysmorphisms. It may lead to unusual size, shape, number or structure of tooth crown or roots. We endeavour to report an extremely rare form of Root Dysmorphism which presented with single root and single canal in all posterior teeth, along with a Dilacerated tooth and multiple impacted teeth. Confirmation was done using two dimensional (2D) and three dimensional (3D) reconstruction using Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). This case is unique as generalized single rooted teeth with single canals along with Asyndromic multiple impacted teeth have not been reported previously.
