Abstract: The localized microdontia is usually unidentar and it occurs mostly in the lateral superior incisors, the third molar or, sometimes, in the supranumerous teeth. The aim is to identify the children and teenagers with localized microdontia, who learn in the schools from Bihor County and to determine the prevalence of this type of dental anomaly. I initiated a study between the years 2008 and 2013,which had 566 students (pupils), who learn in the schools from Bihor County. All had been submitted to clinical and paraclinical investigations. From the total of 566 children and teenagers investigated, 16 patients had presented a localized microdontia, the most affected tooth was the lateral jaw incisor followed by the third molar. The study had shown a prevalence of 2,38% of localized microdontia, the most affected teeth were the lateral superior incisors, and the third molar.
Keywords: microdontia, lateral incisor, jaw, children.
