Case Reports

ECTOPIC THIRD MOLAR IN THE SUB CONDYLAR REGION- A CASE REPORT
Sharique H. Halim, Ismail Farag

Ectopic teeth often impact in unusual positions or at a distance from their normal anatomic location. Ectopic mandibular third molar is relatively rare with heterotopic positions reported in the sub-condylar area. Ectopic third molar may be asymptomatic initially with clinical manifestations, later on as adjacent structures are affected. The surgical approach must be carefully planned for the aim of choosing the more conservative technique that produces the minimum trauma to patients. We present a case of symptomatic ectopic third molar in the sub condylar region and its removal through intraoral approach.
Key Words: Ectopic third molar, Sub condylar region.
