Abstract:   (6752 Views)
Introduction: Tooth development is a complicated process. Any deviation from the normal state causes developmental disorders. Fusion is a dental anomaly in which two teeth together make up a fused one and this anomaly sometimes needs dental treatment. Case report: A 3.5-year-old girl with chief complaint of dental caries was referred to Pediatric dentistry department of Tehran University of medical sciences. Endodontic and restorative treatments with diagnosis of fusion between primary central incisor and a supernumerary tooth were done.
