Dens in dente (dens invaginatus, tooth within a tooth, dilated composite odontome) is an abnormal tooth form which occurs most frequently in the permanent maxillary lateral incisor region. Dens in dente may occur, however, in any tooth in the dental arch, although these other forms are comparatively rare. It may appear within both the coronal part of the tooth and the root, although coronal forms are more common. In this paper, a case of extreme dens in dente with pulpal involvement at an early stage of eruption is presented.
