Abstract

Objective: To present an uncommon case of numeric abnormalities in a non-syndromic patient. Discussion: Dental numeric abnormalities in development of the permanent dentition are quite common; however, combined occurrence of hypodontia and hyperdontia is a rare phenomenon, especially in a non-syndromic situation. This paper describes a 28-year-old non-syndromic man with missing mandibular lateral incisors and an erupted mandibular mesiodens. This is only the third case, to the best of our knowledge, with the two anomalies manifesting in the anterior region of the mandible.
