Supernumeraries in the mandible is a rare phenomenon with a prevalence of 1% and varied aetiology. An additional mandibular incisor is a common clinical finding. Diagnosis is purely by clinical evaluation and a decision to extract or retain such teeth is critical in treatment planning. This is a case report of a 14-year-old female patient with forwardly placed front teeth. Intra-oral examination revealed a lingually erupting mandibular incisor. Diagnosis of the mandibular incisor supernumerary and its management will be discussed.
