Aim and objective: This case report aims to describe the treatment of a malocclusion resulting from the presence of multiple supernumerary teeth. Background: Most of the time, the presence of supernumerary teeth does not produce any clinical manifestations; nonetheless, in the case of mesiodens, if left untreated, it can lead to further orthodontic complications. Case description: This case report presents a case of a 10-year-old child showing multiple supernumerary teeth. Surgical intervention followed by orthodontic therapy was the treatment opted for. Conclusion: Extraction of supernumerary teeth, followed by fixed appliance therapy, is one of the best available treatment options. Clinical significance: The importance of recognizing the possible consequences associated with supernumerary teeth and preventing them should be well understood.
