Dental Agenesis Associated with Dental Impaction (Case Report)
Nineta Fino, Ramazan Isufi, Ersela Alkikaj
Abstract: Dental agenesis is a dental anomaly that can affect several teeth. This anomaly is followed by various types of malocclusion, disorders in the chewing function and aesthetic impairment. Early diagnosis is important for defining a better treatment plan. The teeth most often affected by agenesis are the second mandibular premolar, followed by the maxillary lateral and the second maxillary premolar. This does not take into account the agenesis of third molars, which is increasingly commonplace. Lack of some follicles causes distortion of chewing function and distortion or misplacement of other teeth or their follicles, thus creating susceptibility for dental impaction. We will present a clinical case, of a patient with dental agenesis. The diagnosis and treatment plan were decided in collaboration between the two dental specialties, Orthodontic, and the Oral Surgeon.
