Supernumerary teeth appear as one of the most common and significant dental anomalies in the permanent dentition and are rare in primary dentition. Supernumerary teeth in primary dentition exhibit less variety in shapes and commonly occur as conical form. Early intervention is required when supernumeraries appear in primary dentition stage to achieve better occlusion form and function. This case report highlights unusual incidental finding and management of two supernumerary (bilateral, premolar like) teeth, present in the pre-maxilla region during the primary dentition stage of a male child.
