 Abstract
Supernumerary teeth are dental abnormalies in the permanent dentition and the primary dentition. The etiology is unclear, but it may occur due to dichotomy of the tooth bud or hyperactivity of dental lamina. They occur more in the permanent dentition than in the primary dentition, with the most common site being the premaxillary area. Supernumerary teeth can be classified by morphology and position. Supplemental tooth refers to normal shape tooth. The treatment of supernumerary teeth depends on its shape, position, effect on dentition, and child`s physiological condition. In this case, supernumerary primary tooth in the maxillary molar area was revealed by radiographical and clinical examination, but it was difficult to determine which is the supernumerary tooth. The tooth on the mesial side was extracted to induce the formation of adequate space and to prevent excessive space loss, and the result was favorable.
