Abstract

The aim of this case report is to present an endodontically and esthetically managed maxillary left lateral incisor fused to a supernumerary tooth associated with a talon cusp. This case report describes a multidisciplinary approach involving endodontic and restorative considerations for a successful, functional, and esthetic rehabilitation of the fused tooth. In the present case, we have used spiral computed tomography for better understanding of the complicated root canal morphology of the fused tooth and successful management of this rare case.
