Unilateral gemination of a maxillary first premolar: A case report
Gemination originates when one tooth bud attempts to split into two, resulting in a large bifid crown and usually a single root and root canal. This paper reports gemination of upper first premolar in a 34-year-old female patient, which is asymptomatic.
