Dental anomalies are rare findings that may affect development of occlusion and early intervention may be required. Here, a case of multiple anomalies in primary and perma‌nent dentitions is reported. The patient referred to the dental center with the chief complaint of multiple tooth decay. In the oral examination, the rare case of triplica‌tion between the right geminated man-dibular A and right mandibular B was observed. A talon cusp on the maxillary deciduous lateral incisor was also noticed. In the panoramic radi-ograph view, two permanent supernumerary teeth were found at the region of primary tooth ano‌malies in both jaws. The article describes the management of the dentition during the dental transi‌tory years of 5 to 7. Precise exami‌nation may reveal anomalies that require inter‌vention. In some cases, presence of one anomaly in pri‌mary dentition, can suggest the possibility of further anomalies in both primary and perma‌nent dentition. In this case, careful initial ex‌amination and dental panoramic radio‌graphs led to early diagnosis and appropriate treat‌ment plans in mixed dentition years.
