Macrodontia is derived from the word “macro” which means large and “dont” which refers to tooth or teeth. Macrodontia means a condition whereby a tooth or a group of teeth is abnormally larger than usual.Macrodontia can be a true generalized and affect all teeth. It is a rare condition and can occasionally be seen in people with pituitary gigantism, or excess growth hormones. It can be a relative generalized macrodontia, this is a result of inheritance from 2 parents, where the size of teeth can be inherited from one parent, while the size of the jaw is inherited from the other parent. Macrodontia can also affect only a single tooth, though it is rather uncommonly seen.www.emeralddental.in#EmeraldDental #Smileprotector #smiledesigning #Teethwhiteing #periodontist #toothbrush #kidsdentalcare #Orthodontics #DentalAnatomy #oralmedicine #sensitivity #Teethwhiteing Previous Post ARE DENTAL X-RAYS SAFE?
