Based on the history and clinical examination
Dentine Dysplasia(Rootless teeth)

Clinical feature
Normal eruption pattern, bluish cervical region Type I Radicular dysplasia normal crown of regular or slightly amber translucency, tendency toward complete obliteration of pulp chamber abnormal spaces between the teeth malaligned, malpositioned and severe mobility.
Type II coronal Dysplasia-semi transparent opalescent primary teeth normal appearance in the permanent teeth, incomplete obliteration of pulp cavities pulpotomes.
Differential diagnosisVit D deficiency- (Bone formation of upper and lower limbs and palm is normal
Parathhormone deficiency no hormonal imbalance is seen
Cementogensis imprerfecta( cementation formation is normal)
