Permanent canine agenesis is a rare condition but absence of permanent canines in both the maxillary and mandibular arches are even rarer. It can happen on its own or in combination with other dental issues. There are very few reports of such cases in the literature. This is the third case in the Indian population that has been reported, to the best of our knowledge. It is critical to have a correct diagnosis and treatment strategy in such rare cases. In an 8-year-old male child, we report an unusual case of canine agenesis of both maxillary and mandibular permanent canines, as well as congenital absence of mandibular central incisors and appearance of shovel-shaped incisors.
