ABSTRACT

Supernumerary teeth (SNTs) refer to extra teeth over normal numbers. SNTs can influence adjacent teethand structure. Therefore, it is important to find SNTs before they cause problems and to decide when to extractthem. Etiology of SNTs has not exactly been found, but it has been proposed that genetic and environmental factorsare associated. SNT appears as a single unit in most cases and multiple SNTs usually occur as a part of asyndrome. Non-syndromic multiple SNTs are rarely seen. This report is to document the occurrence of multiple supernumerary premolars in a father and his three sons. Heritage is an important factor in SNT development so familial history is important for early detection of SNT.
