Traumatic events at an early age may lead to developmental dental anomalies and ectopic tooth eruption. A case is reported in which a traumatic injury at two months of age resulted in the development of supernumerary teeth in the upper right premaxillary region. The maxillary canine ectopically erupted or transposed into the space left by the missing central incisor and eliminated the need for a prosthesis in this region.
