Morphological variations can occur in human teeth. Developmental dental disorders occur either due to the abnormalities in the differentiation of the dental lamina and the tooth germs (anomalies in number, size and shape) or to abnormalities in the formation of the dental hard tissues (anomalies in structure). When such variations occur, they are more interesting to clinicians, anthropologists, and forensic dentists. Now, fusion and gemination aren’t an uncommon finding and affected mostly primary dentition and the permanent maxillary incisors. However, gemination of the posterior teeth is rare; permanent all the more than primary teeth. Gemination of a premolar is one such rare anomaly that arises when a single premolar tooth bud attempts to divide. Here, we present a case of gemination associated with the mandibular second premolar, showing a prodigious and unusual crown and root morphology.
