TREJO-GARCIA, Wendolin et al. Supernumerary inversion in the palate of an infant: report of a clinical case. Pediatr. (Asunción) [online]. 2018, vol.45, n.3, pp.237-241. ISSN 1683-9803.


Hyperdontia is a number anomaly in which teeth or structures similar to teeth are formed in excess of the normal amount, resulting in supernumerary dental organs.

Case presentation:

a male patient 7 years 11 months of age with mixed dentition and delayed eruption of the central and upper lateral incisors presented for evaluation. The panoramic radiograph showed a radiopaque area between the permanent upper central incisor (OD 21) and the permanent upper lateral incisor (OD 22). A supernumerary tooth was diagnosed. With the help of an occlusal and a periapical radiograph of the area, the tooth was evaluated and an extraction under local anesthesia was planned. The surgery was performed without complications and the patient was referred to the orthodontic clinic.


In the present report, we note that time intervention and with the help of radiographic studies, a significant result can be achieved without damaging the patient’s future oral integrity. Early diagnosis can be improved with the help of the various types of radiographs available in dentistry, thus avoiding complications in infants.
