In the oral cavity, when teeth present are in excess of normal dental formula of deciduous or permanent dentition, these teeth are known as “supernumerary teeth”. Supernumerary teeth are most predominantly present in the maxillary arch as compared to the mandibular arch. These teeth are most commonly found in the incisal region as compared to the molar region.
Supernumerary teeth present in the molar region are also known as “supernumerary molars”. Depending on their location, supernumerary molars are known as “paramolars” or “distomolars”.
This article presents a short review about supernumerary molars as well as reports four rare cases of supernumerary molars we come across in our institute.

Keywords: Distomolars, Hyperdontia, Paramolars, Supernumerary molars, Supernumerary teeth.
