This report presents an extremely rare occurrence of two inverted impacted mesiodentes in a 16-year-old child patient. Extraction of both mesiodentes was indicated, owing to the abnormal diastema, rotation and impaction of teeth. Anterior cross bite as well as slightly concave profile was associated features in the child who presented with skeletal Class I relationship of the jaws. Development of these abnormalities would have been prevented if the impacted mesiodentes had been diagnosed and extracted early.
