Tooth agenesis is one of the most common developmental anomalies affecting function and aesthetics. Genetic mutations cause non-syndromic tooth agenesis and involve the interaction of genes of tooth epithelium and mesenchyme odontogenesis. This article is the first in the literature to present non-syndromic cases of two siblings reported with mulberry molars, morphological changes in teeth (hypodontia and microdontia), and a genetic study performed to substantiate the involvement of Paired box gene 9 in tooth agenesis and morphogenesis.
