Impaction of maxillary central incisors is not a common scenario seen in dental practice, and its treatment is often found to be challenging for a clinician as they are esthetically important. Parents are mostly apprehensive when the front teeth of their kids are missing. The causes for the impaction of maxillary central incisors are many, and one of the reasons is supernumerary teeth. A mesiodens is one common type which is a malformed, peg-like tooth that occurs between the maxillary central incisors. A bilateral tuberculate supernumerary tooth is a rare occurrence in the anterior premaxillary region, and if they occur, they fail to erupt into the oral cavity. They often cause impaction of the maxillary central incisors. This unique case report throws light on a rare case of palatally placed; tuberculate bilaterally impacted mesiodens along with impacted maxillary central incisors and its treatment procedures.
