         Supernumerary teeth are those which occur in excess of the usual number of teeth. Although the prevalence is rare, multiple supernumerary teeth frequently develop in mandibular region. The presence of supernumerary premolars may associate with various complications such as cystic lesion formation. Most of them are usually asymptomatic, but may be incidentally detected through clinical or radiographic examinations. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment time by tooth extraction or surgical removal are important to prevent subsequent complications. In this case report, four supernumerary premolars were diagnosed in both maxilla and mandible. Treatment planning and surgical removal were performed. At follow-up visit, there were no any complications found.
