Mesiodentes is the most commonly occurring supernumerary tooth, located in the maxillary central incisor region. Maxillary incisor eruption and alignment is commonly affected by the presence of mesiodentes. The recommended method of extracting mesiodentes is based on their occurrence in the dentition period. Extraction during the early, mixed-dentition period minimizes the complications of the eruption and alignment of maxillary incisors. Delayed extraction of a mesiodens might result in malaligned maxillary incisors, which require more complex orthodontic treatment. Case Description: This case report describes the management of anterior malocclusion related to mesiodens in two patients aged 11 and 12-year -old. Discussion: The type of mesiodentes in these cases were conical. Fixed-orthodontic appliances become a treatment option because the complexity of these case. In these case, malocclusions were corrected in eight to nine months. Conclusion: Fixed-orthodontic appliances can treat these malocclusion successfully in shorter time than removable-orthodontic appliances.
