Dental Fusion and Dens Evaginatus in the Permanent Dentition: Literature Review and Clinical Case Report with Conservative Treatment
This clinical case report describes concomitant developmental disorders in the permanent dentition. The concurrence of bilateral dens evaginatus and dental fusion is a rare dental anomaly. Dental fusion is characterized by the union of 2 adjacent teeth at the crown level, which produces the formation of an enlarged clinical crown. Dens evaginatus is an enamel elevation similar to a cusp, generally located in the main groove of molars and premolars. The etiology of both anomalies is uncertain. The purpose of this paper was to review the related literature and present a clinical case where both anomalies are present.
