Supernumerary teeth are considered to be one of the most significant dental anomalies affecting the primary and early mixed dentition and may cause a variety of pathological disturbances to the developing permanent dentition and also resulting in poor dental and facial esthetics. Mesiodens is the erupted or unerupted extra tooth in the midline of the maxilla, along with normal teeth (between the central incisors). Early diagnosis and prompt treatment are necessary for the prevention of deleterious effects on dentoalveolar structures. The inverted conical mesiodens is frequently associated with cystic lesions and can erupt into the nasal floor, becoming more difficult to remove with time. The aim of this case report is to share knowledge about the management of bilateral impacted mesiodentes including the inverted type cases with unusual location, which might assist the clinician in decision-making.
