Association between the presence of peg-shaped maxillary laterals and other developmental anomalies such as microdontia, macrodontia, missing teeth, and Talon cusp has been reported.[7] This case presents the rare occurrence of erupted odontoma in association with peg laterals.
Supernumerary teeth are classified according to their shape and location and they are correlated with macrodontia. Patients with supernumerary teeth tend to have larger mesiodistal dimension (24).
The frequency of other anomalies was as follows: molar-incisor hypomineralization 0.25%, turner hypoplasia 0.1%, fluorosis 0.1%, odontoma 0.1%, fusion 0.09%, gemination 0.06%, amelogenesis imperfecta 0.05%, dens invaginatus 0.03%, talon cusp 0.02%, taurodontism 0.02%, macrodontia 0.02%, dentinogenesis imperfecta 0.02%, dilaceration 0.02%, ectopic eruption 0.01% and microdontia 0.01%.
Clinical and radiological dental examination at 20 years age revealed dental defects such as macrodontia and he had been treated with current recommendations.
These include: supernumerary teeth, hypodontia, pegshaped permanent maxillary lateral incisors, dens in dente, nail disorders, syndactyly, successional conical, macrodontia and double permanent teeth.
Those excluded were subjects with anterior teeth fractures, congenital or acquired maxillofacial defects, attrition, any missing anterior tooth, microdontia or macrodontia. Impressions of maxillary arches were made using standard protocols and according to manufacturer's recommendations using irreversible hydrocolloid impression material (Tropicalgin, Zhermack).
In fact, most epidemiological studies have revealed a higher prevalence of both hypodontia and microdontia in females [Polder et al., 2004], whereas macrodontia and supernumerary teeth occur more frequently in males [Zhu et al., 1996].
