Case of the month: Wandering wisdom tooth
Question: Can you guess what happened to the wisdom tooth on the upper left side?
Question: Pouvez-vous deviner ce qui s’est passé avec la troisième molaire gauche au niveau du maxillaire supérieur?
The answer : This case represents an unusual and complex situation.
The patient was referred to us for the completion of the removal of a wisdom tooth which, unfortunately, was displaced during the initial attempt of the extraction. As can be seen in the pictures below, the tooth had moved to the infra-temporal fossa (image C: purple area at the level of the base of skull). The removal of the tooth was accomplished via an intra-oral approach in our operating room. The procedure went very well and most importantly, our patient had a full and speedy recovery! At Seaforth Oral Surgery, it is a routine to treat simple cases as well as more complex cases such as this one. “It’s always gratifying to know that your patients are satisfied with the results and that they are happy with their experience.” Dr. Marc Shenouda
