Abstract

This article presents a case report of an incidental finding of a double tooth in a 65 year old man. Medical and social history was non- contributory. Interestingly, clinical features tends to suggest fusion where-as radiographic analysis revealed gemination. The course of odontogenesis was not witnessed thus fusion and germination seem to be equivalent hence the term double tooth, which may contribute to esthetic concerns, space problems and occlusal disturbances. Careful evaluation of a case will guide the clinician in treatment planning and in some instances no treatment may be carried out.
