Abstract

Oligodontia is a condition in which the patient has more than six ageneses, excluding the third molars. Whereas the absence of one tooth is quite common, oligodontia is a rare congenital condition that can happen with or without the syndrome. The condition happens due to disturbances during odontogenesis process. Management of oligodontia is a long-term process, and it involves prosthetic, restorative, and orthodontic treatment to support the oral function and esthetic of the patient. This article aims to report a rare case of agenesis of 13 permanent teeth (excluding third molars) in an 11-year-old girl and her treatment plan.
