Variations of teeth have always been of enduring interest to clinical practitioners, academicians, and laboratory scientists. Apart from requiring thorough diagnoses and due considerations during treatment planning and procedures, such variations are of great interest to the dental anthropologist in tracing population movements and forensic viewpoints. The present series of case reports describes a rare developmental feature termed "paramolar tubercle," encountered in otherwise normal young adults. Mentioned in the literature in a few case reports, not much is known about this entity. Thus, the purpose of our case report is to increase awareness and stimulate discussion of these structures and their importance. In addition, paramolar tubercles are clinically relevant, as they influence treatment modalities in different dental disciplines and, further, may affect the prognosis of treatment. This case report also includes cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging taken for one patient to evaluate the utility of such an imaging modality in knowing the precise structure and nature of these anomalies.
