Case of the Week: Ectopic eruption


This week I have an interesting case of ectopic eruption.  Ectopic eruption is when a tooth erupts into an abnormal location (frequently into another tooth).  This case involved two mandibular premolars.  Due to the positioning of the crowns, there was extensive decay as the patient was unable to clean the area well.

For more information and other radiographs of ectopic eruption check out my page on ectopic eruption.

Enjoy!
