A 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.
New York Smile Makeover oral rehabilitation for a partial anodontia patient
This 30 year old female had many genetically missing adult teeth. As a result she also had retained baby teeth and a closed teeth bite.
Before and after pictures are shown to the left. Treatment involved the placement of porcelain dental bridges in the upper and lower jaws. Photo #1 of 2.

New York Smile Makeover for a peg-shaped lateral incisor
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.
