Congenital dental malformations, does our clinical perspective shift?

In our expertise center for congenital dental malformations, many patients present with oligodontia, amelogenesis imperfecta, cleidocranial dysostosis, and others. Although no immediate action is needed such as in a new cleft born, somewhere later in their life we are posed with many challenges that seem to be easily solved using recent techniques such as temporary anchorage devices (TADs), autotransplantations or three dimensional planning, and in the end placement of dental implants or composite bridges. Thereby possibly posing more of a dental than an orthodontic problem. So do we need to impose an extensive orthodontic treatment on these patients or may they have good oral health related quality of life without it?
