Hyperdontia is the condition of having supernumerary teeth, which means teeth that appear in addition to the regular number of teeth. Those extra teeth can have abnormal shapes and might appear in different places of the mouth. The cause of hyperdontia is mostly hereditary, with some evidence of environmental factors.
