Abstract

Simultaneous impactions of first, second, and third permanent molars on both mandibular sides together with the all maxillary second and third molars is a clinical situation never reported before in the literature and it might be a difficult challenge for maxillofacial surgeons and dentists. Early diagnosis and treatment of eruption disturbances contributes to optimal outcomes. This article reports the treatment of an adult with severe impaction of all mandibular first, second, and third molars together with all maxillary second and third molars, which limits the masticatory function and dental arch integrity. The impacted molars were surgically removed as the patients declined orthodontic treatment. The combined surgical-orthodontic approach represents a challenging treatment and the optimal one as it eliminates the need for prosthetic rehabilitation and implant replacement of the impacted molars, when accepted.
