What are the Clinical Features and Demographics of MICRODONTIA? Microdontia is characterized by a tooth being smaller than expected, and affects females more often. Causes are both genetic and environmental factors. The most common form is the isolated, peg-shaped maxillary lateral incisor, an AD disorder.
What are the Microscopic Features of MICRODONTIA? Since the tooth is simply physically smaller, I would assume that it would be difficult to distinguish the microscopic features of a tooth affected by microdontia to a sound tooth.
What can be included in the differential diagnosis of MICRODONTIA? Hypodontia. Although, clinically speaking, Microdontia is easily diagnosed based on clinical findings.
What are treatment options of MICRODONTIA? Treatment options revolve around restoring occlusion and function. These can include extraction and implants, bridges and other restorations. From there, standard POEs should be set in place.
Lesion Terminology It's not a lesion. Microdontia can affect a single tooth (focal) or all teeth (generalized). It commonly affects maxillary lateral incisors and maxillary third molars. The tooth could be described as supernumerary, diffuse (generalized) or local (peg).
