Morphological variations can occur in human teeth. When such variations occur, they are more interesting to clinicians, anthropologists, and forensic dentists. Normally, the mandibular second premolar exhibits the two cusp pattern, one buccal cusp, and the other lingual cusps. Occurrence of four cusps in this tooth is rarely reported in the literature. The aim of this article is to present the development of four cusps in the second premolar, resulting in a molar appearance of the tooth and hence, diagnosed as molarization of the premolar.
