Cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD) is an uncommon disorder associated with a genetic disorder mainly causing dysplasia of bones and teeth with autosomal dominant inheritance pattern, which has an extremely varied presentation. The dental indicators are principally delayed exfoliation of primary teeth and delayed eruption of permanent teeth, and numerous impacted supernumeraries. This article represent a 9 years old Saudi boy case of CCD and illustrates the clinical and radiological features of this patients. In this case the early diagnosis of the condition was not associated with proper orientation of the dental treatment to offer better quality of life to patient.
