Dentin dysplasia (DD) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder of dentin development, which is generally divided into two types based on the clinical and radiographic appearance of the affected dentinal tissues: Type-I (Radicular DD) and Type-II (Coronal DD). This paper reports the case of a 17-year-old female patient with both classical and atypical features of radicular DD in the permanent dentition. The present case shows clinically normal appearing crowns, localised mobility in the maxillary teeth, completely obliterated pulp chambers, widened root canals without any obliterations and the presence of multiple periapical radiolucencies. The clinical and radiographic findings observed in this present case report are different from those reported in the past literature, which suggests that the present case could be a variation of radicular DD.
