Rare Association of Dens Invaginatus with Premolariform Mesiodens Radiographic and Histological Aspects
Supernumerary teeth (SNT) may occur any region of both the arches and both dentitions. Mesiodens is the common type of (SNT), occur in pre-maxillary region. Supernumerary teeth cause a range of complications like crowding, impaction, rotations, displacement, cyst formation and etc. Dens invaginatus is a developmental anomaly resulting in an invagination of pulp into enamel and dentin prior to calci?cation of the dental tissues. The purpose of this manuscript is to describe a case of premolariform mesiodens caused impaction and resorption of central incisor. The radiographic and histological examination of dilacerated SNT showed evidence of dens invaginatus...
