Fusion and gemination are both developmental anomalies whose etiology has till date not been determined. The former is believed to be the union of two adjacent teeth where in the latter case two crowns develop from a single tooth germ. These teeths are unaesthetic and prone to disease because of their abnormal morphology. The rarity with which this entity appears along with complex characteristics, however often makes it difficult to treat.
