Non-syndromic multiple supernumerary teeth transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait

J Oral Pathol Med. 2005 Nov;34(10):621-5. doi: 10.1111/j.1600-0714.2005.00271.x.


Supernumerary teeth are common in the general population and occur more frequently in-patients with family history of such teeth. Multiple supernumerary teeth are associated with cleidocranial dyplasia and Gardner syndrome. However it is rare to find multiple supernumeraries in individuals with no other associated disease or syndrome. We describe the occurrence of multiple supernumerary teeth in a family occurring as a non-syndromal trait. The autosomal dominant transmission of non-syndromal multiple supernumerary teeth is new.
