Abstract The study consisted of analysis of all cases of anomalies in the primary dentition that were seen or treated by the authors in the Department of Children's Dentistry and Orthodontics. A total of 79 occurrences of anomalies was seen in 65 children. The anomalies detected were double teeth, hypodontia and supernumerary teeth. Radiographic examinations of the affected children showed that over 60\% of the cases with anomalies in the primary dentition are associated with anomalies of the succadeneous permanent dentition. All subjects with hypodontia of the primary dentition presented with hypodontia of the permanent dentition. However, anomalies of the permanent dentition were seen in 59\% of subjects with primary double tooth and 50\% of subjects with primary supernumerary tooth.
