Mandibular talon cusp - a case report

Suresh Kumar Sachdeva

Abstract


Talon cusp is a relatively rare developmental dental anomaly, characterized by cusp-like projections from the cingulum area, or cemento-enamel junction of maxillary or mandibular anterior teeth, in both the primary and permanent dentition. In most of the cases it involves maxillary lateral incisors. The anomaly has been reported to be rare especially when it occurs on mandibular teeth. This article reports a case of talon cusp on permanent mandibular central incisor, which makes it a rare entity.
