Mesiodens is a supernumerary tooth present in the midline of maxilla, between central incisors, occurring in 0.15%–1.9% of populations. Mesiodens is the most commonly found supernumerary teeth on many occasions. Mesiodens is paired, single, unerupted, and sometimes impacted. These mesiodens cause many complications, such as midline diastema, displacement, rotation, root resorption, unpleasing esthetics, and cyst formation. In the present cases, mesiodens is found bilaterally in the anterior maxilla. In these cases, both mesiodens are prophylactically extracted to prevent its adverse effects on permanent dentition.
