Abstract
Down syndrome often causes several dental anomalies, such as hypodontia, taurodontia and microdontia. This research aims to determine the prevalence of some dental anomalies in Down syndrome individuals using panoramic radiographs of students in Pembina disable school Medan. As many as 12 subjects with Down syndrome or 299 teeth identified by panoramic radiograph were used in this research. This was a descriptive research with cross sectional design. Sampling was selected by total sampling method. The radiographs were examined to determine the prevalence of hypodontia, taurodontia and microdontia, which were then calculated by descriptive test. Results showed 61 cases of taurodontia, 54 cases of microdontia and 3 cases of hypodontia. In conclusion, the prevalence of dental anomalies in individuals with Down syndrome using panoramic radiography is 20.40 % of taurodontia, 18.06 % of microdontia and 1.00 % of hypodontia.
