Comprehensive management of the double tooth: report of case

J Am Dent Assoc. 1975 Jun;90(6):1269-72. doi: 10.14219/jada.archive.1975.0286.


A patient with an abnormal maxillary lateral incisor was treated to restore function and to improve appearance. Although specific classification of the problem into accepted terminology was attempted, the term double tooth was used to define the patient's problem. We have shown that the identification of the specific abnormalities, not the etiologic classification, is important to achieve an effective treatment plan.
