Supernumerary Teeth (ST) appear in addition to the regular number of teeth. Paramolar is one of such rarely occurring ST. Tuberculate ST is a multicusped, short, barrel-shaped tooth with a normal crown appearing and invaginated but rudimentary root. This article presents a case report of an unusual occurrence of a buccally placed tuberculate shaped paramolar in the maxilla in otherwise a healthy individual.
