Microdontia Classification & external resources
Microdontia is a condition in which teeth appear smaller than normal. In the generalized form, all teeth are involved. In the localized form, only a few teeth are involved. The most common teeth affected are the upper lateral incisors and third molars.
The affected teeth may be of normal or abnormal morphology.
