Introduction: The multiple supernumerary teeth are an anomaly in the number of teeth that could be one, two or three teeth and could be present in a person who has not systemic alteration. The objective of these study is to show the definitive diagnosis made by tomography cone bean and a different way to treat with removable appliance in a young patient.

Case Report: Male of 10-year-old who was diagnosed by multiple teeth; one mesiodens (tuberculated), other, supplementary (right lateral incisor) and a conic located in the other side of the maxilla. The treatment was, the mesiodens had a surgery extraction at the same moment the deciduous teeth and the supplementary were eliminated, subsequently the conic teeth. Next, the central incisor was pulled out by means of ligature and springs placed towards the attachments in the removable device and after the teeth erupted, then fixed apparatus was placed to level and close spaces.Conclusion: The use of cone beam volumetric tomography allows supernumerary teeth to be located more accurately improving surgical times. The interceptive treatment reduces the cost and duration of conventional bracket treatment.
