Objectives: The purpose of this study was to track the frequency of agenesis in a group of children and adolescents who underwent treatment at the Orthodontic Clinic in Cluj-Napoca between 2014 and 2017. Material and Method: We studied a group of 700 children aged 7-18 years. Classification was based on gender, clinical abnormalities, teeth, associated anomalies. Results: In our study, 4% of patients had at least one dental agenesis, the upper lateral incisors being the most frequently affected (47%). In terms of gender, the female was affected with a higher percentage (69%). Conclusions: Treatment of hypodontia is often an individualized interdisciplinary treatment, depending on the severity of the anomaly and associated general diseases.
