odontodysplasia

o·don·to·dys·pla·si·a

(ō-don'tō-dis-plā'zē-ă),
A developmental disturbance of one or of several adjacent teeth, of unknown etiology, characterized by deficient formation of enamel and dentin, which results in an abnormally large pulp chamber and imparts a ghostlike radiographic image to the teeth; such teeth exhibit delayed eruption into the oral cavity.

[-displā′zhə]
Etymology: Gk, odous + dys, bad, plasis, forming
an abnormality in the development of the teeth, characterized by deficient formation of enamel and dentin. The teeth have a ghostlike appearance in radiographs or dental images.
