Abstract

According to Peterson, an impacted tooth is one which fails to erupt within the dental arch in the expected time. Ectopic teeth usually impact in an unusual position or away from their anatomic position. They can be permanent, deciduous or supernumerary. We report two cases of ectopic impaction of third molar – maxilla and the mandible.
