Dental anomalies are congenital malformations of the tooth tissue that occur because of lack or increase in the development of these, they can be in shape, number, size, structure, position may even cause delay in the change of the deciduous to permanent and sometimes lack of development of the jaws, of all these anomalies in this paper will refer to those related to the teeth. Classification of Tooth Abnormalities A. Anomalies of Form 1) Dilaceration 2) Fusion 3) Concrescence 4) T aurodontismo 5) Pearl Enamel 6) in Dens Dens 7) Gemination 8) Sindesmo crown-root B.

Abnormalities of structures? Affect the enamel, (Hereditary) 1.

Amelogenesis Imperfecta a. B. Hypoplasia C. hypocalcification Hypo maturity? Affect dentin (hereditary) 2. Dentinogenesis Imperfecta 3. Radicular dentin dysplasia type-1 4. Coronary dentin dysplasia type-2 A. Anomalies of Form 1) Merger or sinodoncia: Union of two teeth or germs developing in a single structure.

May be complete or incomplete according to the development of the teeth at the time of marriage. The merger is before calcification and may be between two normal teeth, between teeth temporary and normal. It has an incidence of 0.5% is more common in the primary dentition. Fused teeth can have two separate pulp chambers, many show large bifid crown with a camera that makes it difficult to differentiate them from the geminate.
