ABSTRACT

The optimal time for the removal of supernumerary teeth can be divided into two groups; early removal and late removal. While each group has its own advantages, the effects on maxillary central incisor can be significant. The purpose of this study was to determine the ideal time for the removal of the supernumerary teeth by evaluating 166 patients for three months after surgical removal of supernumerary teeth. Relatively young patients in early Hellman’s dental stage with less developed or unerupted maxillary central incisor had less midline deviation. No statistical significance was found in diastema, rotation of the maxillary incisors and their changes during a follow-up period. Removal of supernumerary teeth should be considered as a preventative measure prior to eruption of the maxillary incisors when the midline deviation is observed in panoramic radiographic examination. This study will be useful in determining the optimal time for the removal of supernumerary teeth depending on the location of the maxillary incisors. This study will be informative on deciding the optimal time to remove the supernumerary teeth depending on the various positions of the maxillary central incisor. (this sentence is better to use)
