Dental Enamel Hypoplasia is an enamel defect characterized by thin or absent enamel. In some cases, the defect occurs on only part of a tooth’s surface, resulting in pits or grooves in the tooth’s enamel. In other cases, an entire tooth may have an overly thin layer of dental enamel or may have no enamel at all.
Enamel Hypoplasia is a developmental enamel defect, meaning that is already present at the time the affected tooth first erupts from the gums.
In contrast, enamel wear, such as dental abrasion and erosion, occurs after a tooth has erupted.
