Charting Supernumerary Teeth

Sometimes patients have extra teeth in their mouths. You can easily chart these supernumerary teeth in Dentrix by following these guidelines:

For permanent teeth:
  • Add 50 to the closest standard tooth number (for example: a supernumerary tooth adjacent to tooth 12, would be entered as #62)
For primary teeth:
  • Add the letter "S" following the closest standard tooth number (for example: AS)
For a demonstration of how to chart supernumerary teeth in the Patient Chart, and post transactions in the Ledger, watch the video below:
