Regional odontodysplasia is a rare nonhereditary developmental anomaly affecting dental tissues derived from both ectoderm and mesoderm. It has characteristic clinical, histologic, and radiographic findings. Although various factors seem to be associated with this condition, the etiology remains uncertain yet. Because of its characteristics findings, this condition is diagnosed easily but remains difficult to treat. Various schools of thought exist regarding the treatment. However, the treatment decision varies from case to case. The aim of this paper is to elaborate the condition with a review of literature and to discuss the controversies existing over the treatment options so as to provide successful treatment outcome.
