Abstract

Fused teeth arises through union of two normally separated tooth germs which can be either complete or incomplete. In some occasions, two independent pulp chambers and root canals can also be seen. Its occurrence in permanent dentition is 0.1%. Once fusion has been diagnosed, careful monitoring is required as it may lead to many complications like esthetics, spacing, dental caries or periodontal breakdown.
