Abstract :

Pediatric dentistry is not only about the hard (Teeth) and soft tissues which are visible and can be treated. There are so many dental anomalies which can not be seen through naked eyes inspite of them being in the oral cavity unnoticed i.e, anomalies of the root.These anomalies are detected only while patient undergo treatment for the culprit tooth and these anomalies are present adjacent to the tooth or the tooth which undergoes radiographic examination for the diagnosis. During diagnosis primary molar radiographs shows extra root (Supernumerary root). The normal anatomy of mandibular molars consists of two roots but in rarest of the rare conditions there are three roots called extra roots. When this extra root is present distolingually to the main distal root it is called “Radix Entomolaris” and when it is present mesiobuccally to main mesial root it is called “Paramolaris”. The purpose of this article is to discuss the prevalence, anatomy, classification, clinical and radiographic diagnosis, and significance of supernumerary roots in contemporary clinical pediatric dentistry practice.
