Abstract

Abstract The occurrence of multiple supernumerary teeth in individuals without any associated syndrome is rare. In this report, a rare case of a 48-year-old woman who had an impacted supernumerary fourth molar in the bilateral mandibular ramus is described. She presented with a swelling in the left cheek region. Radiographic examination revealed an impacted supernumerary tooth in the left mandibular ramus with pericoronal resorption of the bone, suggesting peripheral inflammation. She also had an impacted supernumerary tooth on the right side. After administering an antibiotic and antiinflammatory drug, tooth extraction was performed under general anesthesia.
