Dental management of oculodentodigital dysplasia: a case report.

Oculodentodigital dysplasia is an extremely rare autosomal dominant pleiotropic disorder. The syndrome is characterized by abnormal facial features, central nervous system involvement, syndactyly and clinodactyly of fourth and fifth fingers, dry and lusterless hair, generalized enamel hypoplasia and odontodysplasia. Combination of odontodysplasia, poor oral hygiene, and parental neglect can lead to extensive destruction of tooth structure and the treatment options become limited. Early diagnosis with a proper treatment plan and meticulous oral hygiene program helps eliminate the necessity of multiple tooth extractions. This case report describes the comprehensive dental treatment aimed at rehabilitation of function and aesthetics of the dentition in an 8-year-old boy with oculodentodigital dysplasia.
