The telon cusp, which appears like an “Eagle's Telon” is usally seen on cingulum area of maxillary permanent incisors. The deep developmental grooves associated with the sloping lingual aspect of tooth surface is prone for caries. Hence it should be prophylactically restored. Exposure of pulp horn often necessitates endodontic therapy. Two cases of telon cusps are reported. The first case had telon cusp in no. 12 and deep developmental groove on lingual aspect. Carious involvement of the groove had led to pulp involvement. The second case presented with bilateral telon cusps in no. 12 and 22. Occlusal interference in this case necessiated rehabilitation in the form of cuspal grinding.
