Bilateral maxillary supernumerary incisors in a dog
Keywords:Hyperdontia, incisor, tooth
Supernumerary teeth are categorized under the notion of teeth which are present along with the ordinary dental standard. Their etiology is uncertain, but genetic mutations seem to be the most likely cause. They have been reported in several dog breeds and are usually associated with crowding, malocclusion and increased risk of periodontal disease. A supernumerary tooth requires extraction if it becomes a cause of crowding or displacement of other teeth. The present report describes the case of bilateral maxillary supernumerary incisors in a male pet American Staffordshire Terrier who was referred to the Veterinary Stomatology Clinic of the Veterinary Faculty of Sarajevo.
