More than 80% of IP patients have abnormalities of their teeth, and these can be useful in making the diagnosis of IP. The primary (baby) teeth may be delayed. Both the baby and adult teeth may be affected. Some teeth may be missing altogether or when they do erupt, the teeth may be unusually shaped, typically peg-like or cone-shaped. The quality of the teeth and the enamel covering them is normal. Few individuals have serious dental problems, and most can be helped with cosmetic dentistry (orthodontics or prosthodontics) as necessary.
Adult teeth can be affected even when baby teeth have been fairly normal. Unfortunately, issues with baby teeth do not predict the course of adult tooth development.
