  Presence of multiple supernumerary teeth in patients without any associated syndrome or systemic disorder is a rare phenom- enon with a prevalence of 1%. Presence of supernumerary teeth in itself is not a problem and may not require removal in all cases but in certain conditions, they may be associated with several clinical complications and require removal. We are reporting a 10-year-old boy who complained of dental pain and none eruption of permanent teeth. Orthopantomogram initially showed presence of multiple impacted supernumerary teeth, but later, cone-beam computed tomography further revealed additional supernumerary teeth. Consultation with concerned pediatrician ruled out any syndromes or systemic disorders which led us to the diagnosis of “non-syndromic multiple supernumerary teeth” and this probably is a high number of supernumerary teeth reported in a single non-syndromic patient. The aim of this report is to document a case of non-familial occurrence of non-syndromic multiple supernumerary teeth and to discuss the multidisciplinary treatment modalities.
