Abstract :

Double teeth are developmental anomaly which occurs as a sequel of fusion of two teeth or as a sequel of division of single tooth bud during tooth formation. Gemination is seen more commonly in deciduous teeth and may be present in permanent dentition. This article presents a rare case report of bilateral gemination of 32 and 42 in 22 year old female patient. Intraoral radiograph showed fused crown, pulp chamber and single canal for 42 and fused pulp chamber with separate roots for 32. Double tooth diagnosis, differential diagnosis and its classification with treatment has been discussed. Gemination is similar in appearance to fusion and this article highlights their difference in clinical and radiographic appearance.
