It was not completely clear from the pre-operative periapical radiograph if the fused tooth was simply an adjacent supernumerary tooth and surgical exploration was carried out to reach a definitive diagnosis.
The purpose of this work is to present a surgical alternative in the treatment of the dental fusions through the placement of demineralized human bone matrix (DHBM) (Grafton Putty)*, immediately after the separation and extraction of the fused tooth to the permanent one.
The clinical importance is to identify the anomaly to organize a conservative individualized treatment but can cause a number of clinical problems like delayed exfoliation thereby deviating the path of eruption of permanent successors, may be because of delayed resorption of root due to greater root mass and increased area of root surface relative to the size of the permanent successor crown to avoid deviating the path of eruption of permanent successors extraction of the fused tooth is the best treatment option, caries in the grooves at the site of fusion can be restored easily but in cases of pulpal involvement the bizarre root anatomy makes pulp therapy difficult, proper oral hygiene should be encouraged to prevent caries.
