Supernumerary teeth are those which are excess of the normal number. It can be either single or multiple, unilateral or bilateral and seen anywhere in the dental arch with predilection for the anterior maxillary region. The prevalence of this condition varies from 0.10% to 6% in permanent dentition and 0.02-1.9% in the primary dentition and males are affected approximately twice as compared to females. Multiple impacted supernumerary teeth are usually associated with syndromes, but sometime could be idiopathic. In this report, we present a case of 27 years old male patient reported with the mobility of upper front teeth of two weeks duration. The patient’s medical and family history and general physical examination were non-contributory. A panoramic radiograph revealed multiple impacted supernumerary teeth. Based on clinical examination and radiographic investigation, a diagnosis of idiopathic hyperdontia was given. In such cases, management should be planned by a multidisciplinary approach.
