Rights and Permissions

Hyperdontia/additional teeth are the commonly used synonyms for supernumerary tooth/teeth (ST). They occur due to the disturbances during the initiation stage of tooth development. They can be noticed in any region of oral cavity and may be single, double, or multiple; unilateral or bilateral; erupted or unerupted. This report presents a case of impacted single ST in the maxillary premolar region in a 14-year-old boy. Usually, ST are extracted, but there are some conditions where ST could be used beneficially. The present case is an example where ST played a beneficial role.
