Densevaginatus (DE) is a developmental disturbance affecting the shape of the teeth which is characterized by the presence of accessory enamel projections along with dentin and pulpal core on the occlusal or lingual surface of the teeth. It affects both the primary and permanent dentition. The clinical intendment is focused on early pulpal exposure due to occlusal trauma, fracture or attrition leading to infection. Treatment may be conservative or interventional. The occurrence of DE either isolated or conjoined with other dental anomalies has been reported. This article presents with a case report of conjoined occurrence of multiple DE (Schulge type 5) along with partial anodontia of maxillary premolars and left molars and also reviews the etiology, classification, diagnosis and management strategies of the teeth with DE.
