Regional odontodysplasia (ROD) or the ghost teeth is an anomaly of form and structure, it is a sectoral injury of the development of dental tissues of ectodermal and mesodermal origin. It affects several teeth of one or more quarters, known as ghost teeth, inconspicuous on the x-ray. Clinically, often characterized by retained small permanent teeth and frequent abscesses. On x-ray, we see a thin enamel, abnormal coronal dentin, wide pulp chamber, short roots with open apices and an indistinct dentin-enamel limit. The etiologies are not of genetic origin and several hypotheses had been proposed, either local causes (vascular disorders) or environmental etiologies (metabolic disorder) [1,2]. In this case report, we will address the treatment of a regional dysplasia which concerns the maxillary upper left sector and describe mineralization of teeth included in this region. Multidisciplinary management follows a variable chronology depending on the case. It aims to maintain or restore mastication, phonation and aesthetics functions [3].
