This week I have a case of a microdont. Microdonts are fun to see on radiograph as it’s just a mini-tooth. Microdonts are commonly associated with third molars and maxillary lateral incisors. When a maxillary lateral incisor is a microdont it is frequently referred to as a peg lateral due to the altered shape of the crown. This case is a third molar that is a microdont. Treatment ranges from extraction (third molars) to restorative build-up (peg laterals).
