Teeth may show variations in size in that they may be
Small - Microdontia
Large - Macrodontia
In general males have larger teeth than females.
Individual teeth may also exhibit variations in that they may be small or large.
Macrdontia refers to larger teeth than normal
Generalized: affects the entire dentition
Localized: affects one or few teeth
Most of the generalized cases are in direct correlation to the overall height of an individual or those who have pituitary gigantism
Most of the localized cases of macrodontia are sporadic, however in few of the cases there may be an underlying condition such as an arterio-venous malformation or hemihypertrophy causing localized enlargement of teeth
Clinical and Radiographic features
The individual tooth is larger than the adjacent teeth and may have normal morphology, however occasionally they might exhibit alterations in the overall morphology of the tooth
This condition might result in crowding and/or malocclusion
