It may result in impaction of one or both central incisors which in turn may lead to a variety of malocclusions. Timely intervention not only prevents malocclusion but also the time taken for corrective orthodontics. A complete case report of developing mesiodens’ tooth germ resulting in malocclusion including treatment in 1½ year period is presented.
