Bottom Line: If other investigations are negative, an idiopathic case of multiple impacted teeth is suggested to be the possible diagnosis.The objective of this report is to increase awareness of such cases especially in the absence of hereditary/genetic/metabolic factors usually inherent in such scenarios.The patient management in such cases needs to be planned specifically from a multidisciplinary standpoint.

ABSTRACT
Multiple impacted permanent teeth are usually related to syndromes, metabolic and hormonal disorders. However, in some cases, impaction of multiple teeth is not associated with any syndrome. In this report, we present a case of 17-year-old male patient with missing teeth. Radiographs revealed multiple impacted permanent teeth, though medical and family history along with physical examination was not suggestive of any syndromes. If other investigations are negative, an idiopathic case of multiple impacted teeth is suggested to be the possible diagnosis. The objective of this report is to increase awareness of such cases especially in the absence of hereditary/genetic/metabolic factors usually inherent in such scenarios. The patient management in such cases needs to be planned specifically from a multidisciplinary standpoint.

Figure 3: Skull and chest xrays which do not reveal any obvious deformities

Mentions: The patient was advised OPG, chest x-ray and skull x-ray. OPG revealed the presence of impacted, unerupted, and missing permanent teeth [Figure 2, Table 1]. Few teeth showed enamel hypoplasia and calcifications in the pulp space. Skull and chest x-rays did not reveal any other obvious deformities [Figure 3].
