Abstract: Hypodontia is one of the most common dental developmental anomalies. It is the congenital agenesis of less than six teeth excluding the third molars. Hypodonita causes aesthetic and/or functional problems because they usually involve the anterior region of the maxilla and mandible. This is a case report of a young male, aged 8 and half years reported to a private dental clinic by his parents with a chief complaint of spaces between his upper and lower anterior teeth. Clinical and radiographic examination revealed bilateral agenesis of both the maxillary permanent lateral and mandibular central incisors. Proper examination and diagnosis, particularly in young children, is important to make a correct and rational treatment plan and avoid complications. The treatment of hypodontia requires an interdisciplinary approach that includes, orthodontics, paedodontics, and restorative dentistry.
