Chemical compound and disease context of Tooth, Supernumerary

  • The presence of supernumerary teeth can interfere in normal occlusal development [9].
  • This case represents a good example of combined dental development abnormalities, i.e., a numerical anomaly (the supernumerary tooth), an alteration of dental position (the ectopic eruption), an alteration of dental morphology (the aberrant coronal shape), and the invagination [10].
  • A case is described in which, after removal of midline supernumerary teeth on two separate occasions, an unerupted central incisor was brought into the arch with the aid of neodymium-iron-boron magnets [11].
