Dens invaginatus is a developmental malformation resulting from the invagination of the enamel organ into the dental papilla. Type 1 invagination, is most common form. However, it may be easily overlooked because of the absence of any significant clinical signs of this anomaly. Since the risk of necrosis and pulp complication is higher in such dental malformation, an early identification of the affected tooth is important and the prophylactic management is recommended. The aim of this report is to describe an unusual case presenting invagination affecting four teeth. The clinical and radiographic features will also be highlighted and the prophylactic treatment explained.
Key words: Anomalous teeth, dens in dente, dens invaginatus, maxillary central incisor.
