Case Report: Supernumerary Teeth

Hi everyone,

Ran into this case of a young man who will be undergoing orthodontics, but has not one but two extra teeth between the natural central incisors. One is visible on the physical exam, the other is in a retrograde orientation on the radiograph. It is a fairly simple procedure to remove the teeth at an oral surgery office and to then proceed with the orthodontics. He will have an outstanding smile in the not so distant future :)
