Transmasseteric antero-parotid approach: a technique adaptation for ectopic subcondylar third molar removal and associated dentigerous cyst enucleation

Published:November 25, 2013DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.bjoms.2013.10.011
      Ectopic third molars in the subcondylar region are rare and their removal can be difficult. A recent review identified 7 patients between 1980 and 2011 who had had ectopic third molars surgically removed from the subcondylar region; 6 were by an extraoral approach and one was by an intraoral approach.
