ABSTRACT

Congenitally missing teeth are one of the most common dental anomalies which may be termed as dental agenesis. Polygenesis, the formation of one or more supernumerary teeth, occurs much less frequently than agenesis. Hypodontia and hyperdontia are regarded as the opposite dental developmental anomalies. However, their simultaneous presence in the same individual is a rare condition. A case of concomitant hypo-hyperdontia (CHH) is presented here, wherein a 20-yearold female has missing mandibular central incisors, maxillary second molars, and all the third molars. In addition, she has a malformed supernumerary tooth in the mandibular left anterior region. Documentation of such rare case reports is necessary as it helps in minimizing the clinicians’ challenge in diagnosing such cases and thus helpful in providing a multidisciplinary approach in treating such patients.

Keywords: Hyperdontia, Hypodontia, Polygenesis, Supernumerary tooth.
