Multiple impacted permanent Teeth: An indicator for early de
As hypoparathyroidism presents early in the form of diverse oral manifestations, an oral health-care physician can play a major role in the early diagnosis and a multidisciplinary management approach of this disorder.

The present case report elaborates a rare case of a 16-year-old female patient reported with a chief complaint of multiple absent teeth with past dental history of usual exfoliation of primary teeth and failure of eruption of permanent teeth. Her family history was positive for a consanguineous marriage of her parents.

Published in the Indian Journal of Endocrinology, the authors present an interesting and unusual report of a rare case where multiple impacted permanent teeth and retained primary teeth accompanied by other clinical manifestations probed the clinicians for further investigations which, eventually, aided in the early diagnosis of hypoparathyroidism.

Early detection of this disorder is vital for an effective management, not only, paving way for the prevention of further progression of the dental damage, but, also, in improving the medical management of the disorder in particular and the related outcomes.
