Abstract

Aim

The purpose of this case report is to present a case of a non-syndrome male patient with multiple supplemental supernumerary teeth in three quadrants of his mouth.

Background

Supernumerary teeth are described as the teeth formed in excess of the number found in a normal dentition. Prevalence of supernumerary teeth varies between 0.1% and 3.8% in the general Caucasian population. Multiple supernumerary teeth are not a common occurence, although a single or a few supernumerary tooth/teeth in each case have been widely reported in the literature.

Report

An 11-year-old male presented for a routine preventive dental visit. A routine panoramic radiograph showed the presence of multiple supernumerary teeth which were located in the maxillary right canine incisor region, the maxillary left premolar region, and the mandibular right premolar region. The family's medical history was non-contributory, and an extraoral examination did not reveal any abnormality.

Summary

It is rare to find multiple supernumerary teeth in individuals with no other associated diseases or syndromes. This case report presents a case of a non-syndrome male patient with multiple supplemental supernumerary teeth in three quadrants of his mouth.
