Abstract


Intranasal ectopic tooth, which can be derived from either supernumerary, deciduous or permanent tooth, is generally a rare event. Their existence can cause a wide array of complication such as epistaxis, nasal blockage, nasal pain, rhinosinusitis, septal deviation, septal abscess as well as oronasal fistula. We highlight a case of a canine supernumerary tooth that erupted at floor of nasal cavity, causing an acute unilateral nasal blockage, and managed successfully with an endoscopic nasal tooth extraction.
