Author(s): Dr. Richa Dubey, Dr. Kumar Gaurav Dubey
Abstract: The prevalence of hyperdontia has been reported in several studies with variations between different ethnic groups. These variations could be attributed to racial differences as well as differences related to methodologies adopted; diagnostic criteria, analyses employed, and sample sizes. Therefore, the current study was aimed at studying and reporting the prevalence of supernumerary teeth in non-syndromic in bihar population. The study was planned on the 50 patients visited to Department of Dentistry in Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital, Muzaffarpur .Panoramic radiographs and clinical records of patients above the age of 18 years and without any syndromic features were selected for the study. The results of the present study underline the requisite for primary detection and appropriate treatment of these teeth. It should be prudent to adopt a routine radiographic screening of maxillary anterior region at early mixed dentition stage. Knowledge about the supernumerary teeth is important for dental clinicians as they are relatively common but are detected as an incidental finding in a radiograph.
