Multidisciplinary Management of Hypodontia

Prim Dent J. 2017 Feb 28;6(1):62-73. doi: 10.1177/205016841700600108.


Patients with hypodontia require a wide range of treatment, ranging from single tooth replacement to the restoration of multiple edentulous spaces in both arches. Treatment should involve an interdisciplinary team, as no dental speciality possesses the range of expertise required to optimally treat this patient population. This paper presents principles of treatment, key factors of assessment and multidisciplinary approaches to management of the hypodontia patient, including contributions from conservative dentistry.
