Rev Odontol Univ São Paulo [online]. 1997, vol.11, n.4 ISSN 0103-0663. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-06631997000400002.
The study had the objective of identifying the frequency of supernumerary teeth on patients attended at the Pediatric Dentistry Clinic at the School of Dentistry of the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (FO-UFRJ), from 1981 to 1990, relating the frequency to the sex and dentition of the patients. Some characteristics relating to and consequential upon the pathology, as well as the proposed treatments, are also part of this work. To achieve the proposed objectives, 1,907 files of patients with full mouth radiographs were examined. Children who had disturbances such as cleft lip or palate, cleidocranial dysostosis or Gardner's Syndrome were excluded from the study. The age of the patients who comprised the sample varied from 2 to 14
