Talon cusp is a very unusual anomalous structure of tooth. The etiology is still unknown. It may be due to mal-interaction between ecto and mesoderm of epithelial bulgings present on premaxillary region at the time of complex odontogenesis. Genetics may have some role in the formation of Talon cusp. Talon cusp may cause clinical complications.
