Supernumerary tooth may be encountered by the general dental practitioner as an incidental finding on a radiographic examination or as the cause of an impacted tooth. However, in certain cases, it may be misinterpreted as a bony growth (mandibular torus) when it makes its appearance in the lingual aspect of mandibular arch. We present two cases of peridens, a form of supplemental tooth, the former case with the clinical feature of bony swelling and ending in a dilemmatic differential diagnosis and another case of impacted supernumerary tooth, accidentally found on radiograph, thereby stressing the role of radiographs in arriving at final diagnosis apart from clinical counterpart.
