abnormal interaction at any step may result in ectopic teeth development.Teeth that are ectopically
developed in non- dental areas has been reported in the nasal cavity, nasal septum, chin and maxillary
sinus. Ectopic teeth in the maxillary sinus are asymptomatic in most cases;however it may precipitate
sinusitis or sometimes result in ophthalmic symptoms.We report a case of ectopic maxillary third molar
inthe right maxillary sinus with a non-specific symptoms which was enucleated out with the surrounding
