Hyperdontia refers to extra teeth in front or behind your regular teeth. A dentist can treat hyperdontia with orthodontics, or remove any extra teeth if they cause a speech problem.

Key takeaways:

  • When hyperdontia affects baby teeth, it can impact on how the permanent ones develop, and may require treatment.
  • Although a very uncommon condition overall, men are twice as likely to be affected compared to women.
  • Specific health conditions, including genetic disorders, may place you at increased risk of extra teeth.

"As far as location, the tooth can grow in line with your other teeth, near your molars, or near your incisors. It’s most common for people with hyperdontia to have a tooth that grows behind or near the incisors."
