Unilateral dens evaginatus (Talon Cusp) in primary maxillary lateral incisor: A case report


Vivek Mehta* and Anupma Raheja

Talon cusp is a well-delineated additional cusp located on the surface of an anterior tooth projecting from the cingulum area or cementoenamel junction. It is a developmental dental anomaly with clinical significance. Dental clinicians need to be aware of the potential complications that may be associated with the presence of talon cusp. Early diagnosis and management are essential for preventing complications. The paper reports a case of unilateral talon cusp in primary maxillary lateral incisor in a 7-year old male child and its successful management.
