After conclusive diagnosis and surgical determination, the reported patient received treatment indicated for his case successfully, by removing his supernumerary teeth and guaranteeing his oral health, demonstrating the relevance of rapid and complet diagnosis, and also the individualization of propaedeutics in these cases, in order to avoid future complications and to improve the patient's self-esteem and socialization.
