Supernumerary cusps are rarely explored clinically or recorded. Lack of knowledge about them is why professionals and patients, in special, do not give them the importance that their correction and adaptation should receive. The presence of a supernumerary cusp should be disclosed to the patient, and its importance should be stressed. In special, attention should be drawn to the treatment required to manage and correct this anomaly, whether its consequences are esthetic or functional. The developmental tooth anomalies classified as supernumerary are: 1) Cusp of Carabelli; 2) Paramolar; 3) Tubercle of Traviani; 4) Tubercle of Zuckerklandl; 5) Dens evaginatus; 6) Talon cusp; 7) Prominent talon cusp; and 8) Molarized premolar
