Geminated teeth are anomalies which arise from an attempt at division of a single tooth germ by an invagination, with resultant incomplete formation of two teeth. These anomalies may develop during tooth bud morpho differentiation as a result of a developmental aberration of the ectoderm and mesoderm. Gemination is more common in the deciduous dentition compared to permanent dentition and that in the posterior permanent dentition is extremely rare. Here, we present a rare occurrence of gemination associated with the mandibular third molar.
