Abstract

Supernumerary teeth (or hyperdontia) are teeth that exceed the normal number of deciduous or permanent teeth in the oral cavity. The occurrence of supernumerary teeth without any associated syndrome has been frequently reported and many case reports have been published. This article reports two rare cases of familial occurrence of multiple paramolars without the presence of any other syndrome for two consecutive generations. Limited cases of bilateral maxillary or mandibular paramolars have been reported. In addition, prevalence, classification, etiology, complications, diagnosis and therapeutic strategies that may be adopted when supernumeraries occur are discussed. A review of similar cases published in the literature is included as well. View Full-Text
