Other Names for this Disease
- Capdepont teeth
- Dentinogenesis imperfecta Shields type 2
- Dentinogenesis imperfecta type 1
- Dentinogenesis imperfecta without osteogenesis imperfecta
- Opalescent dentin
Researchers have described three types of dentinogenesis imperfecta with similar dental abnormalities. Type I occurs in people who have osteogenesis imperfecta, a genetic condition in which bones are brittle and easily broken. Dentinogenesis imperfecta type II and type III usually occur in people without other inherited disorders. A few families with type II have progressive hearing loss in addition to dental abnormalities. Type III was first identified in a population in Brandywine, Maryland. Some researchers believe that dentinogenesis imperfecta type II and type III, along with a similar condition called dentin dysplasia type II, are actually forms of a single disorder.
