The purpose of this report was to describe the radiographic findings of 6 uncommon situations of supernumerary teeth in a Brazilian pediatric dentistry and orthodontic clinic. Six cases of supernumerary teeth were diagnosed in association with other dental anomalies such as number, position, and form. The supernumeraries were asymptomatic and were detected through routine radiographic examination. The importance of routine radiographic examination is emphasized for the correct diagnosis of supernumerary teeth, and avoidance of associated complications.
