It is not uncommon to find dental anomalies in routine practice. Developmental dental anomalies may be seen in tooth number, size, shape, and structure. Gemination and fusion are anomalies of shape with close similarity but with different etiology. Differential diagnosis is difficult and so the term “double teeth” is often used. The incidence of double teeth is less than 1% and even more so in permanent dentition. Here, we present a unique case of gemination in mandibular third molar diagnosed effectively with the help of three-dimensional imaging and managed with the surgical technique.
