Abstract

Concrescence is a rare dental anomaly in which two adjacent teeth are united only by their cementum. Concrescence most frequently occurs in molars, especially a third mandibular molar and a supernumerary tooth. It is rarely seen in the maxillary anterior teeth. This case report is the first in the literature which details the successful treatment of a concrescence between the maxillary central incisor and a supernumerary tooth through multidisciplinary therapy. The treatment plan included root canal treatment, endodontic microsurgery, and prosthodontic treatment.
