OLATE MORALES, S; ALISTER HERDENER, JP; THOMAS MALDONADO, D  y  ALVEAL CAMPUZANO, R. Approximation to surgical protocol for the management of supernumerary tooth: Evaluation of one case and literature review. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2007, vol.23, n.2, pp.67-73. ISSN 0213-1285.

Introduction: The supernumerary teeth (DSN) are development anomalies, which typical manifestations are sequence and eruption modifications. Methodology: We did a search in Medline and Pubmed with definied criteria of selection between the year 1985 and 2005. Results: 13 articles were found useful for the review, of which 2 were literature reviews. Discussion: DSN’s prevalence surrounds 2 %, appearing principally between men. Not always DSN’s exodontia is necessary for what must know clearly his indications and presenting a radiographic previous study. The surgical protocol demands a description and classification of the DSN to plan the treatment in a multidisciplinary team. The surgical treatment presents generally a favorable prediction and it’s complications are associated with certain frequency to the anatomical neighboring. Conclusion: This surgical protocol helps to systematize the therapeutic procedures for DSN and to do them more predecible.
