This retrospective study evaluated the prevalence of supernumerary teeth in the premaxilla in a group of children referred for consultation, and determines the presence of associated local disorders before and after surgical intervention. The patient files of 100 Israeli schoolchildren (72 boys and 28 girls) were reviewed. Seventy-eight percent of the 130 teeth in this study were unerupted; and 122 were surgically removed. The most common shape was conical or peg-shaped (61 percent).
