What is Anodontia?
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Anodontia is a rare genetic disorder characterized by the congenital absence of all primary or permanent teeth. It is associated with the group of skin and nerve syndromes called the ectodermal dysplasias, in these cases, abnormalities are also noted in the hair, nails, and sweat glands.
Anodontia causes particular problems because each tooth has an important role to play in the dental arch and having one or several teeth missing creates space that can have significant esthetic and functional consequences.
Anodontia is an autosomal recessive condition. A specific gene has not yet been identified. Treatment involves replacement of the teeth with dentures or implants.
