Oligodontia is one of the developmental disturbances seen in human with more than six congenitally missing teeth. Two forms of oligodontia which exist are the syndromic form and the nonsyndromic form. Mutation or deletion of MSX and PAX genes are implicated in oligodontia. Missing teeth often compromises patient's esthetics, function, and causes mental stress. Here, we highlight a rare case report of a nonsyndromic form of oligodontia with concomitant dental anomalies like taurodontism in maxillary permanent first molar and congenitally missing canine in a 17-year-old apparently normal Chinese male patient.
