Supernumerary teeth may be defined as any teeth or tooth substance in excess of the usual configuration of 20 deciduous and 32 permanent teeth. Their prevalence in primary dentition has been recorded variously between 0.3% and 0.8%, and between 0.1% and 3.8% in relation to permanent dentition. They may be a part of number of developmental disorders such as cleft lip and palate, cleidocranial dysostosis, Gardner's syndrome, Fabry Anderson's syndrome, Ehlers–Danlos syndrome, incontinentia pigmenti, and Trico Rhino-Phalangeal syndrome.
