Tooth agenesis is a condition where the teeth are missing due to developmental failure. Congenital tooth agenesis can be either hypodontia or oligodontia. Oligodontia can occur either as an isolated condition or it can be associated with other genetic syndromes. The exact etiology of oligodontia is unknown. A multidisciplinary staged approach of the management is required that includes endodontic, restorative, surgical, and orthodontic procedures to improve the esthetics and function. The present article reports a rare case of oligodontia in siblings identified and treated in the mixed dentition with 1-year clinical follow-up.
