Ectopic eruption of a maxillary third molar tooth in the maxillary sinus: a case report.J Contemp Dent Pract. 2005 Aug 15; 6(3):104-10.JC
Ectopic eruption of teeth into regions other than the oral cavity is rare although there have been reports of teeth in the nasal septum, mandibular condyle, coronoid process, palate, chin, and maxillary sinus. Occasionally, a tooth may erupt in the maxillary sinus and present with local sinonasal symptoms attributed to chronic sinusitis. We present a case of an ectopic maxillary third molar tooth that caused chronic sinusitis in the maxillary sinus.
