Agenesis of one or more teeth is the most common anomaly of tooth development. Several factors like infection, trauma, metabolic disorders, radiation, environmental, genetic factors and idiopathic are possible etiological factors of congenital agenesis. Hypodontia usually requires comprehensive and complex treatments, ranging from single restorations to surgery and multiple restorations, associated with lifelong maintenance.

A 9 year-old female and a 9 year-old male patient have reported to the clinic and we have detected agenesis of bilateral mandibular incisors with an oligodontia and a hypodontia with familial transmission.

Although in many cases mentions oligodontia, congenitally missing bilateral mandibular central teeth cases has not been documented adequately. The purpose of this article is to present two cases of agenesis of bilateral mandibular incisors with hypodontia and oligodontia. Pediatric dentists must be capable of diagnosing because early diagnosis and guidance with regard to treatment are necessary for the problems that may affect the behavioral pattern and social life of these persons.
