Fusion and gcmination arc two distinct developmental anomalies whose differentiation is often difficult, more so, when a fusion occurs between a permanent and supernumerary teeth. This case report discusses in detail the endodontic management of a fused permanent maxillary lateral incisor and its supplemental supernumerary tooth in a 16 year old female patient.
