Supernumerary teeth can cause ectopic and delayed eruption of the permanent teeth, which can further alter the occlusion and appearance of the child. It is therefore very important for the dentist to diagnose supernumerary teeth early in development to allow for optimal yet minimal treatment. Treatment options may include extraction of supernumerary teeth. After extraction of supernumerary teeth, if permanent teeth do not erupt then surgical exposure and orthodontic forced eruption may be required for complete eruption of the teeth. This case report describes the multidisciplinary management of two impacted supernumerary teeth, which prevent the eruption of the maxillary left central incisor (21) in a paediatric patient. Surgical removal of the supernumerary teeth followed by orthodontic correction of the impacted 21 was planned in this patient for aesthetically pleasant and balanced occlusion.
