Dental size and morphology are easily recorded aspects of phenotypic variations. The majority of pathological variations in shape affect the crown of the tooth. The variations in the crown of the mandibular permanent molars include the occurrence of the sixth cusp on the first molars and the fifth cusp on the second molars.
As the variations are always varied, we present here, a unique case of bilateral, mandibular, first permanent molars with an oblique ridge resembling the crown of the maxillary molars.
