ABSTRACT Multiple supernumerary teeth are one of the most common developmental anomalies in humans. They could be associated with prolonged retention of deciduous teeth, displacement or rotation of the adjacent teeth, crowding, aberrations in the root morphology (dilacerations), and failure in eruption or impaction of the succedaneous teeth.
