Dental anomalies referring to either fusion or gemination (double teeth) are predominantly encountered during a routine dental checkup. Tooth fusion arises through a union of two separated tooth germs at any developmental stage of a tooth resulting in an enlarged tooth instead of two normal teeth. This anomaly frequently results in improper spacing in dental arches, crowding, susceptibility to dental caries, and aesthetic concerns in pediatric dental patients. The present case emphasizes the importance of early diagnosis of anatomical anomalies of teeth. These teeth can be managed quite efficiently by a preventive approach along with a long-term follow-up program.
