Hyperdontia

This bizarre looking x-ray is not some photoshop wizardry but rather a severe case of Hyperdontia. Not sure what Hyperdontia is? Just think ‘The Conheads’ when Dan Aykroyd visits the dentist. Ok maybe not that bad.

Hyperdontia is a condition where teeth grow in addition to the regular number of teeth you already have. They can appear in any area withing the dental arch.

Looking into this oddity of the human form I found this  resin skull filled with real human teeth created by artist Jessica Harrison
