Fusion is a dental anomaly that arises through the union of two adjacent teeth. This case report presents a unique case of fusion of maxillary incisors bilaterally with supernumerary teeth, The patient presented to orthodontic clinic with unsightly appearance of his front teeth and upper teeth in front Clinically the anterior teeth were 20 mm in diameter, rotated and having a middle groove. Radiological examination through IOPA and OPG confirmed the fusion of maxillary central incisors with supernumerary teeth bilaterally at the level of middle of roots.
The fused teeth were treated with combination of endodontic, surgical and orthodontic treatment which included endodontic treatment of teeth no 11 and 21 followed by surgical excision and extraction of supernumerary teeth. After this correction the orthodontic treatment was ensued.
Systematic treatment with multidisciplinary approach helped to change a challenging case to a routine and less complicated orthodontic treatment. More ever, it helped the patient to be esthetically confident with his smile from the beginning of the orthodontic treatment.
