To present a rare case of fourth molar bilaterally and a supernumerary tooth in #35 region in the mandible. Brief review of the literature; presentation of the clinical data of the patient and images of the case. Supernumerary fourth molars are rare anomalies of the maxillofacial complex that are more common in the maxilla than in the mandible. Panoramic radio graphs of a female patient aged 38 years revealed the presence of two impacted bilateral mandibular fourth molars and unilateral supernumerary tooth. The supernumerary teeth had normal tooth morphology with regard to their crowns and roots and were similar to the existing third molars and premolars.
