Abstract

Multiple permanent impacted supernumerary teeth are rare and are most of the times associated with syndromes. The prevalence for non-syndromic multiple supernumerary teeth is less than 1%. We herein presenting a case of non-syndromic multiple supernumerary impacted teeth in a female patient and her child. The patient has three children; out of them, two had normal dentition and the youngest child had 60 teeth (35 impacted supernumerary with 25 erupted teeth). The patient herself had a total of 54 teeth. Their medical history was not significant. The systemic investigations were not suggestive of any syndrome and disease. Very few cases reported more than 30 supernumerary and impacted teeth bilaterally in both the jaws. This case report becomes unique as both mother and her child presented with more than 30 supernumerary impacted teeth.
