Hypophosphatasia is a hereditary disease that can present as premature exfoliation of deciduous dentition in young children. We present a case of a 32-month-old female with a history of skeletal problems who spontaneously exfoliated three mandibular primary teeth. It was the premature exfoliation of her mandibular teeth that led to the diagnosis of childhood hypophosphatasia.
