Supernumerary teeth can be present in any region of dental arches but most commonly they are located in the anterior maxillary region. They can erupt or remain embedded in the alveolar bone. The embedded supernumerary commonly effect developing dentition, whereas those which areerupted can cause various esthetic or functional problems. Occurrence of supernumerary teeth is more frequently in the permanent dentition than in the primary dentition. These are considered as one of the most significant dental anomaly when found in primary dentition or mixed dentition stages. Its significance is considered to be of great concern to the parents and dentists because of associated disturbances. Various classification are available considering their form and location.
