Brown Teeth

(redirected from Dentinogenesis Imperfecta Type II)
An autosomal dominant [MIM 125490] dysodontogenesis which is one of the most common defects in dentin production, affecting 1:8,000 persons, characterised by small, yellow-brown teeth, fracturing of enamel and excessive wearing of teeth
Treatment Multidisciplinary approach focusing on occlusal rehabilitation, and restorative treatment to preserve where possible remaining tooth structure and protect the affected dentin from caries, attrition, abrasion and erosion
