New York Smile Makeover cases. Partial anodontia and dental reconstruction

New York smile makeover for a partial anodontia patient is performed in our NYC Smile Makeover office. Partial anodontia is fairly common. It may involve missing one or two teeth. Sometimes it can involve missing a significant number of teeth. Partial anodontia does not necessarily occur with other medical problems.

In contrast supernumerary teeth involve having extra teeth grow in the mouth. Supernumerary teeth may not involve other medical conditions. Family members may be affected.

Partial anodontia is genetically inherited. It involves having less than the normal amount of teeth naturally grow in the mouth. In contrast supernumerary teeth means having extra teeth naturally grow in the mouth. Dental problems can occur by having either too few or too many teeth in the mouth. Photo #2 of 2.

To the left an upper peg-shaped lateral incisor tooth #10 received a porcelain dental crown. Root canal therapy was also performed. Shown are before and after pictures.

Incidentally a peg shaped lateral is also genetically inherited. However  it is not considered partial anodontia nor supernumerary. Instead it describes a teepee-like shape that interestingly commonly only involves the upper lateral incisor teeth.
