NEL, C; YAKOOB, Z; KUNGOANE, T  e  DAVIDSON, CL. Amelogenesis imperfecta with multiple impacted teeth and altered eruption pathways - A radiographic case report. S. Afr. dent. j. [online]. 2020, vol.75, n.5, pp.260-266. ISSN 0375-1562.

Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) comprises a vast group of developmental alterations in the quantity and/or quality of enamel, unaffected by systemic disorders. In this case report we describe the typical clinical and radiographic features of AI with multiple impacted teeth and altered eruption pathways. Patients with AI benefit from early diagnosis and treatment to prevent tooth loss and loss of vertical dimension. Optimal management of these patients requires a multi-disciplinary approach and regular dental recall appointments. Therefore it is the oral health clinician's responsibility for the timeous identification of this condition.
