ABSTRACT

Multiple supernumerary teeth affecting all four quadrants of the jaw are a rare dental anomaly which has become a chance finding on routine dental panoramic tomography (DPT). In this paper, two cases from the English-speaking Caribbean are reported. The role of radiography in the diagnosis and management of this rare developmental dental anomaly is emphasized. The paper stresses the importance of ruling out associated syndromes such as Gardner’s Syndrome, cleidocranial dysostosis and cleft lip and palates, as multiple supernumerary teeth are usually related to such conditions. There is a review of the literature as it relates to supernumerary teeth.
