In this article, we report two cases of type I dentin dysplasia (DD): the first case is subtype “d” DD and second case is severe form of DD type I, which presents all of four subtypes and describes characteristics and the management of this type of teeth anomalies.

Materials and methods

Dentin dysplasia is a rare abnormality of dentin that involves both primary and permanent dentition. The normal shape of crown, short roots or its total absence, pulp chamber obliteration, crescent-shaped pulp, pulp stone, and periapical radiolucencies are the characteristics of DD type I.


There are many problems in the management of a patient with DD. Depending on root development and pulp canal situation, endodontic treatment and tooth extraction are applied in teeth with pulp necrosis and periapical abscess. The prognosis of DD largely depends upon the age at which the diagnosis is made, and the quality of the treatment provided.
