Caption: Figure 1: (a) Extraoral frontal view shows swelling on right side of face, (b) intraoral view shows alveolar enlargement and missing teeth on right side, (c) OPG shows intraosseous radiolucency (chevron) with impacted 46, enlarged mandibular canal (1), enlarged mental foramen (2), deep sigmoid notch (3), narrow condyle and pseudoelongation of condylar neck (4), notching of gonial angle (5), and supernumerary tooth
in maxilla (6).
Russell KA, Folwarczna MA (2003) Mesiodens--diagnosis and management of a common supernumerary tooth
A supernumerary tooth
in the nasal cavity could result from obstruction at the time of tooth eruption because of crowded dentition, persistent deciduous teeth, trauma, a developmental disturbance such as cleft palate, or a genetic predisposition.
A very small supernumerary tooth
, little more than a slender spicule and likely derived from one of the usually atrophied anterior tooth buds noted by Martin (1916), marked the lower left jaw of one animal (MWSU 19515), just anterior to the normal dentition.
14 Backman and Wahlin15 found 14 cases with one supernumerary tooth
in a study in the Caucasian population.
After this, an elevator was used to try and separate the supernumerary tooth
from the lateral incisor.
Moreover, the alveolus of the third tooth and the supernumerary tooth
are confiuent and very wide, probably with some maxillary bone reabsorption.
Mandibular supernumerary tooth
causing neurosensory changes: A case report.
The first report of a Supernumerary tooth
appeared between AD 23 & 79 (9).
Dilaceration of a central incisor Patient 4 a 12 year old girl was referred after extraction of a midline supernumerary tooth
followed by exposure and traction of the central incisor which failed to induce eruption (Figure 4a).
Depending on their buccal topographic location, they are classified into: mesiodens: Supernumerary tooth
in the maxilla anterior region (incisors).
Ectopic supernumerary tooth
, imbedded in superior wall of left maxillary antrum.
Here, I document a supernumerary tooth
in the American mastodont (Mammut americanum) based on USNM (National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.
Coexistent partial anodontia and supernumerary tooth
in the mandibular arch: A rare case.
When the tooth is unerupted, a radiographic talon cusp may resemble mesiodens, compound odontoma, supernumerary tooth
or a dens invaginatus, hence should be included in differential diagnosis.
