FUSION OF A MAXILLARY CENTRAL INCISOR WITH A SUPERNUMERARY TOOTH:CASE REPORTS
Developmental anomalies of dental hard tissues are characterized by morphologic changes and may result in variations in the number of teeth including fusion and germination. Fusion is known as “synodontia” and has been defined as the union of two or more originally individual teeth. Fusion may be partial or complete involving a normal or a supernumerary tooth with a higher frequency in primary dentition. Etiology is still unclear. Fusion cause esthetic and occlusal problems, caries, and periodontal disease where complex and multidisciplinary approach is required.
This paper describes two cases of fused maxillary central incisor with supernumerary teeth.
