Tuberculate supernumerary teeth are found in the maxillary anterior region. They usually result in oral problems such as malocclusion, food impaction, poor aesthetics and cyst formation. There is paucity of literature on this anomaly in our environment. This paper describes a case of tuberculate supernumerary teeth with typical and atypical features of supernumerary teeth in this region. Treatment is carried out with a combination of surgical and orthodontic methods. Early diagnosis and treatment of this anomaly is suggested to avoid more serious consequences and to prevent severe orthodontic complications.
