Dentin dysplasia is a genetic defect of dentin formation inherited as an autosomal dominant trait, characterized by normal enamel formation, atypical development of dentin and pulp chamber morphology. It is classified into type I (radicular dysplasia) and type II (coronal dysplasia) and affects the primary or both dentitions. This report presents two cases of Dentin dysplasia type I affecting two of three sisters and the possible hereditary compound. The difference between the treatment modalities are discussed. The general dentist should be aware that dentin dysplasia is an important cause of tooth loss. An early identification of root abnormalities directly implies in the treatment modality.
