Supernumerary teeth also known as hyperdontia is a developmental abnormality characterized by the presence of extra teeth in addition to teeth of the normal eruption series. Non-syndromic supernumerary teeth have a site predilection for the mandibular premolar region. Herein, we report a rare case of non-syndromic, bilaterally transposed maxillary supernumerary premolar in a 29-year-old male patient. Clinical considerations and various treatment options are also discussed.
