The mesiodens is the most common supernumerary tooth, located in the maxillary midline between the central incisors. Its etiology is uncertain and multiple theories have been put forward. Early diagnosis and treatment allows the spontaneous eruption of the permanent incisors, and avoids associated complications as well as more complex subsequent treatments. In this article, two cases of mesiodens in patients attending the primary care pediatric outpatient clinic are presented.
