Introduction and aim. Anomalies in dental characteristics such as size, shape, number, structure, and eruption are commonly observed in clinical conditions. One such anomaly is the presence of supernumerary teeth found in various regions of the dental arch. Although frequently asymptomatic, supernumerary teeth are routinely identified during radiographic evaluations. Among the most common causes of impacted maxillary incisors is the presence of supernumerary teeth. Description of the case. Herein, we present a rare case of lower left canine impaction subsequent to a supernumerary fusion to the mandibular left incisor in a 10-year-old Caucasian female. Conclusion. This case contributes to the current knowledge regarding supernumerary fused teeth, emphasizing the importance of early intervention and multidisciplinary collaboration in effectively managing such developmental dental irregularities.
