This week I have a case of a large talon cusp on a maxillary central incisor along with a clinical photo. A talon cusp is a hyperplasia of the cingulum of a tooth and typically classified as a variant of normal anatomy. In the anterior, it will present as a V (maxilla) or triangular (mandible) radiopaque entity superimposed over the crown of the tooth. The radiopacity is that of enamel. Check out the maxillary right central incisor on this case below.
If you have any questions or comments about talon cusps, please leave them in the comments below. Thanks and enjoy!
