The pathology of extra teeth is evaluated on the basis of clinico-operative statistics for the years 1981-1985 and comprising 88 patients for a total of 115 treated teeth. The data obtained confirm the higher frequency of extra teeth in male patients. The most frequent site is easily the frontal sector of the upper arch. At that level, especially in males, two more or less symmetrical extra teeth are not infrequent. These data are in substantial agreement with the epidemiological data reported in the literature. Extra teeth are usually treated by surgical removal followed by orthodontic treatment to correct malformations caused by them and to recover the functional and aesthetic role of the upper front teeth.

Abstract

The pathology of extra teeth is evaluated on the basis of clinico-operative statistics for the years 1981-1985 and comprising 88 patients for a total of 115 treated teeth. The data obtained confirm the higher frequency of extra teeth in male patients. The most frequent site is easily the frontal sector of the upper arch. At that level, especially in males, two more or less symmetrical extra teeth are not infrequent. These data are in substantial agreement with the epidemiological data reported in the literature. Extra teeth are usually treated by surgical removal followed by orthodontic treatment to correct malformations caused by them and to recover the functional and aesthetic role of the upper front teeth.
