Enamel hypoplasia (EH) is a defect in tooth enamel that results in less quantity of enamel than normal. The defect can be a small pit or dent in the tooth or can be so widespread that the entire tooth is small and/or mis-shaped. This type of defect may cause tooth sensitivity, may be unsightly or may be more susceptible to dental cavities. Some genetic disorders cause all the teeth to have enamel hypoplasia....

There are several issues that commonly arise in the orthodontic management of patients with hypodontia. These include: space management; uprighting and aligning teeth; and management of deep overbite and retention and stability. The following paper discusses these aspects of orthodontic management.....

One of the main problems caused by accessory cusps are occlusal interferences.....

» Transplantation of primary canines after or ankylosis of upper permanent incisors.
Transplantation of primary canines after or ankylosis of upper permanent incisors: Primary canines were transplanted to replace lost or ankylosed permanent upper incisors. Healing, healing complications and loss and survival mwere evaluated in a prospective case series study. In total, 27 primary canines were transplanted. Extraorally posts made of titanium were inserted into the root canal from a retrograde direction as an immediate endodontic treatment and as an elongation of the short autologous roots .....

» Case report-Multidisplinary Management of Hypodontia
Multidisplinary Management of Hypodontia: The purpose of this article is to describe a team approach to treatment of hypodontia in adolescent dentition. A case report of hypodontia with a microdontic lateral incisor in a Class I malocclusion illustrates the principles of case management. Multidisciplinary consultation during treatment planning and coordination and appropriate timing of subsequent interdisciplinary dental care enables the clinician to provide the optimum care. The scope of orthodontic and restorative management depends on the severity of the hypodontia....

» Case report-Maxillary canine-first premolar transposition
Case report-Maxillary canine-first premolar transposition: Transposition is a form of ectopia, in which 2 adjacent teeth change positions in the dental arch or 1 tooth develops in a position occupied by a nonadjacent tooth. Transposition can be partial or complete. Despite their low prevalence in the general population, transpositions are a challenge to orthodontists, especially if treatment aims to correct the order of the teeth. This article reports the diagnosis, planning, and treatment of a unilateral maxillary canine-first premolar transposition in a female patient treated orthodontically without premolar extraction .....
