A number of bizzare and unusual anomalies of teeth have been reported in the literature. Concrescence is one such odontogenic anomaly wherein the teeth are united by cementum only. It is of utmost clinical significance, as treatment of one tooth can directly affect the other tooth. In case extraction is planned, it can not only result in inadvertent extraction of the other tooth but can also get very difficult if proper pre-operative diagnosis with X-ray was not made. This report describes one such case of concrescence.
