Abstract

Removal of deeply impacted teeth surrounding the lingual space is difficult and various surgical approaches have been described to remove ectopic mandibular teeth. In this case report, we present an endoscopically assisted intraoral surgical technique that uses a long-tip ultrasonic bone cutting device. A 47-year-old female had an ectopic lower third molar to the lower border of the mandible in the lingual space. The patient underwent transoral endoscopic removal of the ectopic mandibular third molar using a long-tip ultrasonic device and general anesthesia. This technique was advantageous because it minimized the risk of damaging the surrounding soft tissue and nerve.
