Abstract

Macrodontic tooth (in Latin: macrodens) is an anomaly of the structure of a tooth; it usually refers to the medial upper incisors, and is usually the cause of malocclusion in the anterior jaw. The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of therapeutic management of a macrodontic tooth. The orthodontic treatment as well as conservative and endodontic treatment of the macrodontic tooth was applied to dental defects resulting from the presence of a macrodontic tooth. Determining precise objectives and their implementation in collaboration with the patient makes obtaining satisfactory functional and aesthetic effect possible.
