Abstract

Multiple supernumerary teeth is an infrequent developmental alteration. It can affect any area of the dental arches. They are usually reported with several syndromes such as Gardner's syndrome, Cleidocranial dysplasia, Ehler Danlos syndrome, Down's syndrome, etc. Rarely, is it observed in a non-syndromic association. A familial finding of multiple supernumerary teeth is even rarer. Detection of supernumerary teeth is a coincidental finding and is usually detected on radiographs. The article presented here reports the presence of multiple supernumerary teeth without associated syndrome in three siblings of a family which is a very rare finding. It also stresses on the importance of clinical and radiographic diagnosis and the value of thorough medical and dental history.
