Hypodontia is the most common anomaly in human dentition associated with number that develops in the initiation stage of tooth morphogenesis. It is characterized by tooth agenesis of two to six teeth, may or may not be associated with a syndrome, and is controlled by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Mutations in the genes MSX 1 and PAX 9, which are the main genes responsible for odontogenesis, are responsible for the development of nonsyndromic hypodontia. In this case report, a 13-year-old girl reported to the Department of Pediatric and Preventive Dentistry with the complaint of midline diastema. On clinical and radiographic examination, she was diagnosed with this condition and was explained about the treatment prospects.
