Abstract

Congenital absence of fewer than six teeth excluding third molars is termed as tooth agenesis or hypodontia. Agenesis of one or more teeth is considered the most common anomaly of tooth development. Absence of central or lateral incisor creates an aesthetic problem which can be managed in several ways. The aim of the present paper is to report clinical cases of congenital missing permanent maxillary and mandibular incisors and its clinical implications and treatment options.
