 [den″tĭ-no-jen´ĕ-sis]

dentinogenesis imperfec´ta a hereditary disorder of tooth development, transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait, and characterized by discoloration of the teeth, ranging from dusky blue to brownish, poorly formed dentin with an abnormally low mineral content, obliteration of the root canal, and normal enamel. The teeth usually wear down rapidly, leaving short, brown stumps.
