Amelogenesis imperfecta (Al) is a diverse collection of inherited diseased that exhibit quantitative or qualitative tooth enamel defects in the absence of systemic manifestations. Also known by varied names such as Hereditary of enamel dysplasia, Hereditary brown enamel, Hereditary brown opalescent teeth, this defect is entirely ectodermal, since mesodermal components of the teeth are basically normal. The Al trait can be transmitted by either autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, or X-linked modes of inheritance. It is necessary to diagnose the case and provide durable functional and esthetic management of these patients, where the unaesthetic appearance has a definite negative psychological impact.
