Supernumerary tooth is a common dental anomaly present in both maxilla and mandible. It may manifest as an isolated dental anomaly or as a feature of a syndrome. Talon cusp is another dental anomaly and presents as an accessory cusp in both deciduous and permanent dentition. Talon cusp is usually asymptomatic; however, it may present with numerous clinical problems. Talon cusp is clinically manifested in three forms; Talon, Semi-taIon and Trace Talon. Talon cusp, present in a supernumerary tooth is an uncommon dental anomaly. In this article, we present a case report of bifid talon cusp present in a supernumerary tooth along with an overview of classification of talon cusp, different clinical variants, etiopathogenesis, associated syndromes, clinical problems and treatment modalities.
