Supernumerary teeth are the teeth present in addition to the normal set of teeth. They may be single, multiple, unilateral or bilateral, erupted, or unerupted and in one or both jaws and may or may not be associated with other disease or syndrome. This article reviews case series of supernumerary teeth with no associated disease or syndromes. Clinical Relevance to Interdisciplinary Dentistry
  1. Multidisciplinary approach is necessary to meet the treatment challenges of supernumerary teeth.
  2. Supernumerary teeth can be managed either by removal/ endodontic/ orthodontic therapy or by maintaining them in the arch and frequent observation.
  3. Removal of supernumerary teeth is recommended where there is compromised esthetic and functional status.
