Case of the week: Developing Distodens (supernumerary teeth)

This week is a neat case showing two distodens developing in the mandible.  Distodens are supernumerary teeth found in the molar region.

Note distal to the mandibular left (developing) third molar is another follicle with the enamel evident.  On the patients right side, only the follicle is evident.  No calcified structure is visible on this image.

If you  have any questions, please let me know. Thanks and enjoy!
