Supernumerary teeth are most significant dental anomalies that affect the primary and early mixed dentition and may cause a variety of pathological disturbances to the developing permanent dentition. Mesiodens is a supernumerary tooth that commonly occurs in maxillary anterior region and located between the permanent maxillary central incisors. To prevent deleterious effects of mesiodens on dentoalveolar structures, early diagnosis and prompt treatment are required. This series of 2 cases features management of erupted mesiodens that was treated successfully by timely intervention in mixed dentition.
