dentinogenesis imperfecta, a condition that affects tooth development. People affected by this condition generally have discolored (most often a blue-gray or yellow-brown color) and translucent teeth. Teeth are also weaker than normal, making them prone to rapid wear, breakage, and loss. These problems can affect both primary (baby) teeth and permanent teeth. Dentinogenesis imperfecta type 3 is caused by changes (mutations) in the DSPP gene which are inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. Treatment is usually focused on protecting primary (baby) and then permanent teeth with preformed pediatric crowns and other interventions. The replacement of teeth might be considered in the future with dentures and/or implants.Dentinogenesis imperfecta type 3 is a rare and severe form of
