Dens evaginatus of anterior teeth (talon cusp): Report of five cases
Segura-Egea, Juan J. / Jiménez-Rubio, Alicia / Ríos-Santos, José V. / Velasco-Ortega, Eugenio
The talon cusp, or dens evaginatus of anterior teeth, is a relatively rare dental developmental anomaly characterized by the presence of an accessory cusplike structure projecting from the cingulum area or cementoenamel junction. This occurs in either maxillary or mandibular anterior teeth in both the primary and permanent dentition. This article reports five cases of talon cusp, two of them bilateral, affecting permanent maxillary central and lateral incisors and canines that caused clinical problems related to caries or occlusal interferences.
