Journal Title:Advances in Human Biology

Background: Supernumerary tooth (ST) is a developmental anomaly and has been argued to arise from multiple etiologies. These teeth may remain embedded in the alveolar bone or can erupt into the oral cavity. When it remains embedded, it may cause disturbance to the developing teeth. Hyperdontia is the condition of having supernumerary teeth, or teeth that appear in addition to the regular number of teeth. The prevalence of supernumerary teeth varies between 0.1 and 3.8% and is more common in the permanent dentition. These are more common in the mandible than in the maxilla. Presented here is a rare case of patient who was diagnosed with supernumerary premolar in both quadrants of maxilla discovered on routine radiographic examination.
