A great number of abnormalities in form and number of teeth is congenital. These abnormalities are manifested in a decreased or increased number of teeth or just in changes of tooth form. The term of double teeth is a dental anomaly which a single-tooth germ tries to produces two teeth. A 16-year-old boy presented to our clinic to solve a dental anomaly of his teeth. His medical history was non-contributory. In the clinical and radiographic evaluation, it was determined that the double tooth had twinned crown and one single root. Fixed orthodontic treatment was planned for the patient. Regular dental controls might improve our ability to detect these anomalies and plan for the treatment at the appropriate time.
