Unilateral fusion of a supernumerary tooth to a maxillary permanent lateral incisor: a report of a rare case



Journal of Endodontics 41(3): 420-423



A supernumerary tooth is an additional entity to the normal series of teeth that may occur in isolation or may be fused to a normal counterpart. Diagnosis and delineation of an accurate treatment plan in cases involving supernumerary teeth are often a challenge.
