Maxillary tooth displacement in the infratemporal fossa

Korosh Roshanghias, Andre Peisker, Jörg Olaf Zieron


Wisdom tooth operations are sometimes accompanied by complications. This case report shows

complications during upper jaw third molar removal. Expectable problems during oral surgery

should be planned to be solved in advance. Displacement of the third molar during oral surgeries

as a considerable complication is rarely discussed scientifically. A good design of flap, adequate

power for extraction, and clear view on the surgical field are crucial. Three‑dimensional radiographic

diagnostics in terms of cone beam computed tomography is helpful after tooth displacement into

the infratemporal fossa.

Key Words: Cone beam computed tomography, oral surgery, tooth, displacement, wisdom tooth, operations
