Introduction: Ectopic teeth occur in a wide variety of sites, including the maxillary sinus, mandibular condyle, coronoid process, orbital, and nasal cavities. Reported symptoms and signs associated with nasal teeth include facial pain, external nasal deformities, foul-smelling rhinorrhea, recurrent epistaxis, and oronasal fistula. Ectopic teeth occurring bilaterally in the nasal cavity is very very rare. Â Case Report: A bilateral intranasal ectopic teeth case, which is asymptomatic on the right side and symptomatic on the left side, is presented. The tooth on left side was extracted endoscopically. There were no complications. Â Conclusion: Extraction of an intranasal tooth under endoscopic guidance is an adequate treatment. If the ectopic intranasal tooth is asymptomatic, clinicians should follow with clinical examination and radiological imaging.
