Odontology is a branch of science that deals with the study of the structure, development, and abnormalities of teeth. Teeth abnormalities come in many forms, here are a few:

  • Anodontia - failure of teeth to develop
  • Hypodontia - having less than 6 congenitally missing teeth
  • Hyperdontia - having extra teeth
  • Taurodontism - also known as bull teeth, where the roots are not separable but have formed together to make a block shaped tooth
  • Fusion - the joining of two adjacent tooth germs to form a single large tooth
  • Gemination - where a single tooth attempts to form two teeth
  • Dilaceration - an abnormal bend in the root of a tooth, possibly caused by traumatic displacement during development
  • Attrition - loss of tooth surface due to normal wear. Accelerated wear is known as pathologic.

Instruments commonly used in the medical practice are also used in odontology. This includes forceps, storage trays, suture cutters, and curettes. All of these instruments serve to make the process easy for the physician.
