Cleidocranial dysplasia - Treatment
There is no specific treatment for the condition. Only the dental condition can be somewhat modified by timely intervention. As the dental problems is most significant; appropriate measures are important. Some of the suggested options include the following:
- The primary or the milk teeth should always be carefully assessed for presence of decay and if found these must be restored. Corrective surgery of the teeth and repositioning the bones is also recommended.
- Application of dentures over the unerupted teeth
- Extraction of teeth as they erupt.
Some dentists do not recommend the removal of primary or supernumerary teeth as it does not necessarily promote eruption of unerupted permanent teeth. Also the permanent teeth may be difficult to extract due to presence of malformed roots.
